Energy centers and spiritual development – Part 1: The physical energy centers

As you probably already know, we have seven physical energy centers (chakras) that we learn how to use during our spiritual growth. Once we have learned how to use a certain center, we continue forwards to the lessons of the next center. Like that, we develop from center to center, while our consciousness is usually focused on the center that we are learning at the time. Sometimes we learn the lessons of several centers at the same time, but our main focus usually stays on only one of the centers.

Like that, we keep on moving through the lower energy centers until we reach the heart center. The heart center is special, because through it we can open a portal to our non-physical energy centers.

Our non-physical energy centers are mentioned in almost every culture in the world. According to the Jewish kabbala, “Israel” is a code name for all of us; each one of us is “Israel”. If you split the Hebrew word Israel (ישראל) into two, you will get to words: Yashar (ישר) and El (אל).
Yashar means straight and El means God. So “Israel” can also mean Straight to God – Those who can communicate directly with their inner God.

Since Israel is made from twelve ”tribes” and we know that we have seven physical centers, We can assume that we have another five energy centers hidden somewhere. 12-7=5.

I have found a picture of these five hidden centers in the pages of the summit lighthouse. Since I can not publish that picture in here I have made my own version, but with (more or less) Buddhist symbolism.

In the picture, the non-physical energy centers are places above us, because it symbolizes our development “upwards”, towards God in heaven. However, according to the channeling by Shirley Hallel Gutman, our pineal gland works as a two way mirror: Everything that we think is outside of us is actually inside us. The outer world is a reflection of our inner world.
