As in most models of holistic healing, the work of Esoteric
Healing is the integration of body, mind and spirit. In Esoteric
Healing the aura and chakra system are used as diagnostic and
therapeutic tools to help the client understand the source of
the “dis-ease” and begin the process of letting
it go. The aura, or electromagnetic field that surrounds the
body, holds the records of past, present and future events.
Because we exist in this trinity of past, present and future
we need to look at the aura for a true holistic perspective.
The aura holds thoughtforms of past experience, both of this
lifetime as well as past lifetimes, which can influence the
way we process energy. Also held in the aura are future potentials-
as it is the karmic template of our soul's essence. To bridge
the past with the future we need to deal with the present, which
is basically what my work is about.
The aura tells the present story of the physical, emotional
and spiritual aspects of being because it is the result of
cellular mitosis. During mitosis, which is cellular division
that happens continuously in the body; photons, or packages
of light are released that hover in the electro-magnetic field
that surrounds the body. These photons vibrate at different
frequencies, creating colors. These colors can be interpreted
by understanding the chakra system.
Chakra, a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, is a center of consciousness
. . . a vortex of energy running parallel to the spine. Each
one of these centers rules a different quality and characteristic
of being and spins at a different vibrational frequency that
is related to a specific color. So, when we see a color at
or on a particular part of the body, we can apply what we
know about the symbology of that particular part of the body
with what we know about a color, that relates to a chakra,
and come up with an analysis of what is going on with the
processing of energy on physical, emotional and spiritual
By looking at the aura we can see the source of dis-ease;
we can see where the vital motivating force is being diverted
and/or congested. With focused body and energy work we can
help to move and balance this energy - enabling the body to
In Esoteric Healing we work diagnostically and therapeutically
with the chakra centers as well as the aura. These vortexes
of energy are the buttons that connect our body, mind and
spirit. They are the wheels that move our ‘vehicles’
along the path. If any of these wheels are flat or out of
balance . . . or if there is sand or grit in the bearings,
our getting where we want to go is much more difficult. When
these chakra centers are balanced, and inflated and spinning
in the correct direction, we can more easily and efficiently
get where we want to go and achieve our goals. As mentioned
above, there are seven primary chakra centers, each connected
to a specific endocrine gland and each ruling different psychological
and physiological functions. The following is a brief explanation
of these centers of consciousness.
The first of these chakras is located at the base of the
spine. It is the center that connects us with survival issues…
money, career, shelter, anger, passion, lust and pain and
irritation. It is the densest of the chakras, spinning in
the vibrational frequency of red.
The second chakra, located in the pelvic region about three
inches below the navel, has to do with issues of emotion,
attachment and letting go. This is not only attachment to
people, places and things but also attachment to belief systems
and ways of being. This is a very important concept. Almost
always this center is addressed in the healing of physical
and/or psychological dis-ease. Most all dis-ease is an attachment
to a way of being on one or many different levels. This center
spins in the vibrational frequency of orange.
The third chakra center is located in the solar plexus and
rules many things. We can begin to understand the complexity
of this center by looking at the organs located here from
a symbolic perspective. The stomach is where we take in our
food . . . it sorts out where the different nutrients will
go . . . so metaphorically speaking it is our data bank, a
place of synthesis of information, forming opinions and making
judgments. It is called the seat of the mental body. The kidneys
hold cellular memory of childhood emotional traumas. The pancreas
processes and assimilates sugars . . . or sweetness from the
universe. It is from this place where we set boundaries. This
center has to do with fear, trust, self-esteem and self-doubt.
It is the place of ego and will. Yellow is the vibrational
frequency of this center.
The fourth chakra center is found in the lung and heart area.
Some call this center the gateway to the spiritual self. This
center has to do with forgiveness, compassion, personal freedom
and personal sovereignty. This is also the place of surrender.
The color is a beautiful emerald green.
The fifth chakra, located in the neck and throat area is
the thyroid center. The thyroid controls the body's metabolism,
or timing of every cell in the body. If we look at this center
metaphorically, we can see that this center has to do with
how we are connected to universal timing. The fifth chakra
is the center of communication and responsibility . . . giving
us the ability to respond. This is also the place of manifestation.
Its color is electric royal blue.
The sixth chakra, or brow center is the seat of insight and
intuition . . . a knowing that is literally beyond words.
This is the place of clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience.
It is from this chakra that we have the capacity to visualize.
The color or vibrational frequency of this center is violet.
The crown chakra, located at the top of the head, is ruled
by the master gland, the pituitary. The pituitary controls
the entire endocrine system. This center connects us with
Universal Consciousness. The vibrational frequency is white.
The Esoteric Healing work I teach both here and in Mexico
helps participants, most of whom are health care providers,
to reawaken, develop and refine their auric vision. There
are four precepts in this process. One is to go through the
chakra system as an ‘initiation’ process. When
we are attuned to each chakra center at a very deep level,
we are able to raise our bodies and beings to that specific
vibrational frequency. We need to be able to see faster in
order to see the aura because it exists in the infrared part
of the light spectrum, which is much faster vibrationally
than the visible light spectrum. The second precept is to
practice specific eye exercises designed to enable participants
to readily change focal length. The third is to develop a
neuro-linguistic way to interpret patterns and symbols into
colors . . . somewhat like learning to read. The fourth precept,
and perhaps the most difficult, is to be able to get out of
the ego’s way – the third chakra – the censor
and judge . . . the rational thinker. These workshops also
offer participants specific hands-on healing techniques. Once
we can see the aura and analyze how the chakras are functioning,
the esoteric healer can extend specific colors from their
hands to specific areas in and around the body to affect a
change on physical, emotional and/or spiritual levels.
