Mūlādhāra: Root : Biosurvival
The root circuit is related to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality. Physically it governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security. It is said to relate to the gonads and the adrenal medulla, responsible for the fight-or-flight impulse when survival is under threat.
The foundation of the electromagnetic energy-body system, and the resting place of the coiled Kundalini serpent; an ancient symbol corresponding to the energetic connection between the electromagnetic energy field of the body and the electromagnet pulse from the core of the Earth. Corresponding to nerve ganglia in the perineum, its main function is to channel energy upward from the Earth into our feet, legs, and spine, keeping us stable and grounded. In the homunculus the areas between the feet and base of the spine correspond with the limbic system, called sometimes the reptile or lizard (serpent) brain, governing our most primordial instincts; associated endocrine glands relate to the ovaries in women and testes in men.; activation of the Root Circuit also stimulates neurons in the reptilian area of the brain.
This chakra is where the three main nadi of Tibetan yoga separate and begin their upward movement. In the Hindu system the dormant Kundalini serpent rests here, wrapped three and a half times around the black Svayambhu linga, the lowest of three obstructions (granthis) to her full rising. It is the seat of the red bindu, the female drop (which in Tibetan vajrayana is located at the navel chakra).
We have ascertained through neurology that the earliest imprints of infancy effect these lower areas of the brain; for example, childhood trauma leaves measurable damage to the amygdala. Sɵrcery theory postulates that memory imprints are held in this area of the energy field relating to attachment to the mother. Early trauma shows up in this field as imbalances, and may relate to disordered attachments in later life. Victims of mind control cults, often submitted to violent
abuses that exploit psychological effects described as attachment theory, will have often disordered attachments to their abusers. This will also effect the energy body’s foundational balance, resulting in a weaker field overall, often corresponding with weakened immune system and other ailments. Disrupted first circuit imprints, whether from infancy or later, may also result in an over-active Root Circuit manifesting as compulsive and / or addictive behaviours, and a sense of general dissatisfaction. The good news is that imbalances in the biofield can be corrected, sometimes instantaneously, .once we understand what they are; these changes corresponding with new, ordered imprints in the neural regions of the lower reptilian brain.
Associated with the ineffable circuit of Malkuth, the Law of the Red Ray (Ganesh, and the Shakti known as Dakini), and infra-low Delta brainwaves. The vocēs magickæ (seed mantra employed to activate the circuit) is LAM.
Svādhiṣṭhāna: Sacrum : Territorial
Associated with the ineffable circuit of Yesod, the Law of the Orange Ray, and Delta brainwaves. It corresponds on the homunculus with the higher areas of the lizard brain and lower area of the mammalian, as well as fight or flight reflex signals from the amygdala, activated by the actions of the Root Circuit, and the adrenals, regulating stress response through the release of adrenaline and noradrenaline. It is considered to correspond to the testes or the ovaries that produce the various sexual hormones involved in the reproductive cycle, the genitourinary system and the adrenals. The sacral circuit is related to relationships, violence, addictions, basic emotional needs and pleasure. Physically, Svadhishthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm.
Corresponds with nerve ganglia around the sacrum; the etymology of which leads through the Latin os sacrum, itself rooted in the Greek hieron oseon, meaning ‘sacred bone’. In women, the Sacral Circuit corresponds also to energies surrounding the nerves of the cervical opening, and in men to the pelvic bone. Its Sanskrit name Svadistanna means “one’s own sweet abode”, and it is associated with the qualities of movement. It is the most sensual of all the chakras, its energies reflected in our movements through life and relationships with others, and imprints from early childhood, inevitably effecting self-esteem and self-worth in the present. Imbalances of the Sacral Circuit energy field often relate to deep inner uncertainties, unexpressed pain, and other destructive emotions. A well balanced Sacral Circuit, registering higher amplitude, reflects strong will, self determination, decisiveness and autonomy.
The vocēs magickæ is VAM, combined with the visualisation of a glowing ball of orange-red light above the genitals and / or in the corresponding areas of the brain.
Maṇipūra: Solar Plexus : Semantic
Associated with the ineffable circuit of Hod, the Law of the Yellow Ray, and Theta brainwaves. Situated beneath the edge of the rib cage, corresponding on the homunculus with the mammalian brain and its related ‘gut instincts’; hence also sixth sense abilities such as empathy or hunches, often experience as a ‘gut feeling’.
Disruptions in the field around the solar plexus result from dissociation, leading to a loss of self awareness and self possession, and so to behaviours that might also be described as unbalanced. In the energy body the solar plexus nebula acts as a power reserve, something like the storage of energy in a battery. It is also the centre of balance, physically and energetically. In the practices of Taoist physical alchemy it is the Tan-Tien, serving to balance the overall system, psychically and physically. In Dr. William Tiller’s studies with Chi-Kung masters it was shown that the increased amplitude during meditative trance, measurable in the body and environment, was emitted primarily by the nerve ganglias around the solar plexus.
The solar plexus circuit is related to issues of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex. Physically the solar plexus governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually all matters of growth. It is considered to correspond to Islets of Langerhans, which are groups of cells in the pancreas, as well as the outer adrenal glands and the adrenal cortex, playing a valuable role in digestion and the conversion of food matter into energy for the body.
The vocēs magickæ is RAM, combined with the visualisation of a glowing ball of yellow light at the solar plexus and / or in the corresponding areas of the brain.
Anāhata: Heart : Sociosexual
Associated with the ineffable circuit of Netzach, the Law of the Green Ray, and Beta brainwaves. Its corresponding areas of the brain include the right hemisphere. The heart circuit is related to complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, rejection and well-being. Physically it governs circulation, emotionally it governs unconditional love for the self and others, mentally it governs passion, and spiritually it governs devotion. It is considered to correspond to the site of maturation of the T-cells responsible for fending off disease and may be adversely affected by stress.
The electromagnetic energy field emitted by the heart is the most powerful in the human body, and measurably increases when the mental and physical attributes are aligned with the pulse of the Earth. It corresponds on the homunculus with the higher areas of the mammalian brain, receiving their strongest imprints during the first stages of individuation from the parents, and with puberty, and the first stirrings of love.
Measurable changes in the heart’s energy field also occur with changes in emotion. Strong negative emotions such as anger and hatred create an incoherent spectra within the electromagnet field, similar to the jagged readings of activity during an earthquake, while positive emotions such as love and compassion create a harmonic spectrum. Since the heart is the hub of the electromagnetic body as a whole this has corresponding effects upon the overall system. It is also transmitted through our field into our environment, interacting with the fields of other people, and the surrounding morphic resonances. Our feelings are not only triggered by influences external to us, the electromagnatic transmission of the heart influences our environment.
Studies have shown that the heart is related to precognition, adjusting its activity and field up to six seconds before intellectually unpredictable stimuli, whether positive or negative; before not just the
brain, but also before any signals reached the five traditionally considered senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch, or taste. The brain’s responses are typically around half second to after stimuli reaches the senses. If an event is going to be emotionally significant to us our heart’s reactions begin before it occurs. This suggests that the Heart Circuit’s electromagnetic field is constantly scanning the morphic field for subtle resonances of future events. Although we are usually unconscious of this activity, sɵrcery provides us with skills and tools to develop this faculty and bring it into consciousness.
The vocēs magickæ is YAM, combined with the visualisation of a glowing ball of green light at the heart and / or in the corresponding areas of the brain.
Viśuddha: Throat : Neurolinguistic
Associated with the ineffable circuit of Geburah, the Law of the Blue Ray and Alpha brainwaves. The throat circuit is related to communication and growth through expression. Physically it governs communication, emotionally it governs independence and the sense of security (i.e wealth), mentally it governs fluent thought. It is considered to correspond to the thyroid, which produces hormones responsible for growth and maturation. Plays an important role in lucid dreaming and out-of-body travel.
The Throat Circuit’s electromagnetic field is generated at the cervical plexus of the spine, resonating through the larynx, mouth and throat, nasal passages and sinuses, and the channels of the ears. It corresponds on the homunculus with the language centres in the higher cortex; the most recently evolved area of the brain, distinguishing us from our reptilian or mammalian relatives. It is further associated with thyroid endocrine glands responsible for metabolic processes of the body, such as digestion, the distribution of nutrients, and how efficiently our bodies and brains function, as well as the physical changes that take place as we grow and our bodies develop with age. The thyroid is in turn governed by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain. Communication between the two glands is essential to our well-being. Imbalances in this area may result from, and signify, unexpressed trauma and grief, difficulty in finding safe avenues for expressing feelings and experiences where their truth will be respected and taken seriously, often manifesting physically as respiratory difficulties or ear infections.
In Sanskrit it is called the Vishuda, meaning ‘to purify’, and is concerned with self awareness, communication, telepathy and, when the higher chakras above are also activated, the channelling of information from higher planes; divine wisdom. In terms of sɵrcery it is the energetic bridge between the physical and the realms of frequencies and non-local consciousness, between intention and manifestation, and in certain advanced techniques the conduit of consciousness into space and / or other dimensions.
The vocēs magickæ is HAM, combined with the visualisation of a glowing ball of blue light at the throat and / or in the corresponding areas of the brain.
Ājñā Chakra: Third Eye : Neuropsychic
The nerve ganglia of the third eye are situated between the two physical eyes and slightly above the bridge of the nose, corresponding with the same areas of the face on the homunculus, situated around the brain’s frontal cortex and corresponding with with pineal gland, itself lying at the midline of the brain between the two hemispheres; a fact reflected in its traditional symbol of the two petalled lotus. Called in Sanskrit Ajna, meaning ‘command’, the third eye circuit is concerned with analysis, intellect, understanding, and belief (manomaya kosha), and those psychic abilities often referred to as second sight (vijnamaya kosha).
The major function of the pineal gland is the secretion of melatonin, and regulation of the circadian rhythms; it is also postulated to be the production site of dimethyltryptamine, the only known hallucinogen produced by the human body. Working in conjunction with the pituitary gland, whose structure is comparable to the ocular retina, the pineal gland transmits light signals by way of the hypothalamus through the optic nerve fibres. It is also associated with all those sixth sense abilities we have discussed regarding cryptochromes, which have been found in human beings in the physical eyes, and the area of the third eye.
It is also in the area of the third eye that Gamma waves begin their sweeping pulse, travelling through the brain at an average of around
40 Hz. As the chakras are activated through meditation, and strengthened through attunement to the Schumann Resonance, the sɵrcerer attains also to the higher consciousness brainwave frequency of Gamma, measurable in the brain as corresponding to the third eye and crown circuits.
Early life traumas may effect the third eye circuit drastically, resulting in overactivity manifesting as brain dysfunction ranging from migraine to epilepsy; often characterized by Gamma spikes of 1,000 Hz upwards. Less severe imbalances in this area may result in disrupted sleep cycles, nightmares, visitations, waking visions, intrusive thoughts, and the disassociation of painful memories which may seem uncontrollable and unbearable.
A balanced and well functioning third eye circuit results in heightened cognition, compassion (in the Buddhist sense), and when empowered through disciplines of meditation lead to spiritual insight, with the awakening of psychic faculties as a beneficial side effect. That we may receive premonitions in dream prior to significant events suggests that the third eye circuit, like the heart circuit, is constantly scanning the morphic field.
Associated with the ineffable circuit of Tiphareth, the Law of the Indigo Ray, and Gamma brainwaves. The vocēs magickæ is OHM, combined with the visualisation of a glowing ball of indigo light at the third eye and / or in the corresponding areas of the brain.
Sahasrāra: Crown : Neuromystic
Associated with the ineffable circuit of Hesed, the Law of the Violet Ray, Kundalini’s union with Shiva, the Bridal Chamber of the Gnostics, and Hyper-Gamma brainwaves. Situated just above the crown of the head, it corresponds to the area of the brain deemed to be the source of Gamma frequencies. The crown circuit is related to pure consciousness, esoteric wisdom, the death of the body, the release of Karma, and the condition of Samhadi (Gnosis). Physically it governs the secretions of the pineal gland and their communication to the endocrine system, also connecting to the nervous system via the hypothalamus.
An imbalanced crown circuit is indicative of loneliness and isolation, typical of grief and trauma. There are inevitable times in our lives
when we feel disconnected from the possibilities of spiritual connection with anyone or anything. It may also indicate a lack of connection to the true self, and therefore to truth generally, an antinomian ‘disconnection’, egoism, selfishness, and resistance to change.
A balanced crown circuit results in expansive selfless awareness, heightened compassion, clear thought,.heightened intellectual and / or physical performance, and spiritual insight.
It is through the crown that the out-of-body double leaves the physical during out-of-body movement, or at the point of death, and consciousness becomes non-local, beyond space-time. The experience is non-dual and s0 cannot be adequately described, but is often associated with a sense of infinite expansiveness, the interconnectedness of everything; and the Absolute; a state of consciousness called in Sanskrit anandamaya kosha, meaning ‘the illusion of bliss’. It has also been called Enlightenment, Illumination, At-One-Ment, the Void, or Gnosis.
The vocēs magickæ is AAH, combined with the visualisation of a glowing ball of violet light above the crown of the head and / or in the corresponding areas of the brain.
Shadow Chakras: Atavistic – Praeterhuman
There are also a further series of seven shadow circuits below the root circuit going down the legs, corresponding the base animal instincts (demons) and the underworld; upon our NeuroKabala they correspond with Daath. All correspond with Delta brainwaves.
Atala : Hips; Concerned with fear and lust.
Vitala : Thighs; Concerned with anger and resentment. Sutala : Knees; Called in Sanskrit, Concerned with jealousy.
Talatala : Calves; Concerned with a state of prolonged confusion and instinctive wilfulness.
Rasatala : Ankles; Concerned with selfishness and pure animal nature.
Mahatala : Feet; Concerned with lack of conscience, and sociopathy.
Patala : Soles of the Feet; Concerned with malice, murder, torture and hatred; in Hindu mythology it borders on the realm of Naraka (Hell).
There are said to be three further secret circuits that are beyond the physical and the spiritual. They are called Golata, Lalata, and Lalana, and are located on the uvula at the back of the throat, above the Ajna chakra, and within the soft upper palate. They defy description in the sense of the above seven and can only be experienced once Kundalini has fully awakened. In Kabala they correspond to the three ineffable circuits above the Abyss. In the Buddhist eight chakra system, these three correspond to the highest chakra above the crown, just as God (the Absolute) may be understood as a unity with three aspects; a Trinity residing within and beyond space-time.
Theta brainwaves may be self-activated by any means that induce a profound state of calm within the nervous system, significantly lowering blood pressure to cause the circulatory system, skeleton, and organs to vibrate coherently at around 7.83 Hz; this leading naturally to Theta brainwaves, increased amplitude in the overall biofield, culminating in the activation of Gamma brainwaves harmonising to create and unstoppable Theta-Gamma telepathic signal that does not attenuate over distance.
The method explained here begins with meditation on the principle of Earth energy, originating as an electromagnetic field surrounding the planet’s molten core, entering the body through the soles of the feet and root chakra, vibrating up through the body along the spine. If the experimenter is so disciplined and inclined, the Activation Sequence may be combined with Yogic disciplines such as asanas, mudras, and pranayama, or with the protracted motions of Tai-Chi or Chi-Kung, or any number of related energy based meditative, healing, or martial systems.
If working in an urban environment, Theta brainwaves may be activated through sympathy with sustained audio and / or electromagnetic frequencies of 7.83 Hz. Gamma brainwaves may be activated through sympathy with sustained audio and / or electromagnetic frequencies of 40 Hz upwards.
If outdoors it is advantageous to have immediate and uninhibited contact with the bare earth. Since most shoes have rubber soles, which act to insulate, it may also help to go bare foot. Our connection to the Schumann Resonance is the reason why it feels so good to go naked in the woods.
Begin by adopting a comfortable posture, with the spine held straight and the limbs arranged symmetrically. This may be standing, seated on the ground, or in a chair, or lying down. The most important thing is that the posture may be maintained without providing a distraction. Spend some time to prepare by relaxing, breathing slowly and deeply, clearing the mind.
The assignment of the biocircuits to the ascending scale of notes, as described below, need not be an exact science. Experiment with vibrating the seed mantras and vowels to find which suits you best. What is important is that their vibration may be felt in the corresponding areas of the body, physically and energetically.
The technique is especially powerful when performed by more than one person, as a synchronised ritual with a partner or working group. Just as the sound frequencies interact and amplify each other as the mantric vowels are intoned, so do the biofields of the participants; the merging of consciousness generating what occultists call the Egregɵre.
* The root circuit is activated by intoning the seed mantra LAM (pronounced laaahm), or the vowel sound UH (as in huh), in the tone of C. As you intone, place your hands with fingers and thumbs forming a circle around the area just below the torso. The root circuit may be seen with the inner eye as a whirling circuit of deep red energy. The Tantric technique of mula bandha, meaning ‘root lock’, reverses any downward flow of energy, sending it upward. It is performed by contracting the muscles of the perineum, somewhat similar to the sensation of tightening the muscles to constrict the flow of urine. This takes practice to isolate; at first it may prove impossible to contract the perineum without also contracting the genitals and anus. Contractions are held for as long as is comfortable, and / or released with each exhalation.
* The sacral circuit is activated by intoning the seed mantra VAM (pronounced vaaahm), or the vowel sound OOO (as in you), in the musical note of D. As you intone, place your hands with fingers and thumbs forming a circle around the area of the vagina / pelvic bone. The Sacral Circuit may be seen with the inner eye as a whirling circuit of red-orange energy. Activation may be experienced as, or be stimulated by, sensual arousal and heightened skin sensitivity.
* The solar plexus circuit is activated by intoning the seed mantra RAM (pronounced raaahm), or the vowel sound OH (as in go), in the musical note of E. As you intone, place your hands with fingers and
thumbs forming a circle around the area of the solar plexus. The solar plexus circuit may be seen with the inner eye as a whirling circuit of yellow energy. The solar plexus nerve ganglia are at the centre of biofield’s energetic balance. Activation allows for the accumulation of the biofield’s amplitude through drawing in, storing, and purifying the frequencies as they are transmitted upwards towards the heart.
* The heart circuit is activated by intoning the seed mantra YAM (pronounced yaaahm), or the vowel sound AH (as in la), in the musical note of F. As you intone, place your hands with fingers and thumbs forming a circle around the chest. The heart circuit may be seen with the inner eye as a whirling circuit of green energy. Activation causes the electromagnetic field generated by the physical heart to increase in amplitude, and therefore in its range and radius, by up to three times.
* The throat circuit is activated by intoning the seed mantra YAM (pronounced yaaahm), or the vowel sound AY (as in may), in the musical note of G. As you intone, place your hands with fingers and thumbs forming a circle around the throat. The throat circuit may be seen with the inner eye as a whirling circuit of blue energy.
* The third eye circuit is activated by intoning the seed mantra OHM (pronounced ooumn), or the vowel sound I (as in eye), in the musical note of A. As you intone, place your hands with fingers and thumbs forming a circle around the brow. The third eye circuit may be seen with the inner eye as a whirling circuit of indigo energy. Activation corresponds with an acoustic standing wave in the third and lateral ventricles of the brain, polarizing the cortex. An electromagnetic pulse is then generated which stimulates the brain to raise both amplitude and frequency of brainwave output.
* The crown circuit is activated by intoning the seed mantra AAH (pronounced aaahh), or the vowel sound EEE (as in me) in the musical note of B, or through sustained inner and outer silence. As you intone, place your hands with fingers and thumbs forming a circle above the head. The crown circuit may be seen with the inner eye as a whirling circuit of violet energy. Activation is commonly experienced as an inwardly visible Light surrounding the body and passing through it, penetrating to the core of the DNA, or as a Light at the end of a very long tunnel, as is commonly reported with near death experiences. Through the activation of Higher Gamma brainwaves, the origins of which correspond to the crown circuit, consciousness transcends space – time.
