IF THE STARS should appear one night in a thousand
years, how would men believe and adore…

I often think of the chakras as stars that descended to earth and embedded in our
human form. In some ways, the story of chakras is similar to that of the stars. As
Emerson implies, their presence can be overlooked, ignored, or assumed simply
because they are content to exist, seen or unseen, as surely as day follows night.
But to explore the chakras is to investigate one of the truly great tales of the
universe. I have spent years uncovering its many twists and turns, an array of
stories enfolded within the larger tale. I wrote this book to present a
compendium of these stories pulled together into a single source, a definitive
storybook about chakras.

Chakras are energy centers in our bodies that, when perceived by those of us
who are blessed to be able to see them, look like wheels of light spinning in and
around the body—stars in miniature. Chakras are also “subtle” structures,
meaning that, in many ways, they operate under the radar of most people’s
perception, on a psychic or spiritual level. But they are also intricately
intertwined with our physical and emotional capacities. As key parts of a greater
subtle energetic anatomy that you will learn about in this book, they have no less
important a job to do than to manage all levels of our existence.
Chakras have been studied by hundreds of cultures over thousands of years.
These dynamic energy centers are linked with myriad aspects of our being, from
the body’s electrical system—measurable to an extent with diagnostic and other
medical devices—to subtler categories of vibration such as colors, sounds, and
elements. I call this gigantic basket of chakra ideas—and especially the practices
associated with them—“chakra medicine.” This term honors the traditional
meaning of medicine: the sum total of all knowledge, skills, theories, and
practices we can engage in to increase our well-being. Because chakras manage
all aspects of life, they can be seen as the key to health, happiness, and prosperity.
Chakras have been a subject of study by so many diverse peoples and for so
long that writing a book about chakras could take forever—a never-ending
account that starts in the early mists of time and slips over the horizon ahead. I
have dedicated myself to putting two covers on this eternal story, to serve as
markers; hence, I have aimed to make this book a comprehensive compilation of
the knowledge of chakras and chakra medicine as it exists today, drawing from
sources worldwide, beginning with the ancients and adding information of my
own that I have gained through extensive study and my energy healing practice.
But never fear: we will unfold this massive tale in bite-sized pieces. The
information I will share begins at a basic level and grows in complexity. It is,
therefore, an invitation to learn the fundamentals of “all things chakras” and then
go deeper, ever deeper. Eventually, through your own explorations, I hope that
you will add your own chakra discoveries to our shared wisdom base.
As you travel though this book, you’ll discover that I continually return to the
theme I already introduced: that the chakras in our bodies can be compared to
the stars in our galaxy. I enjoy this beautiful metaphor, but as you dive into the
discussions of the nature of energy in later chapters, you will see that this
connection is more than symbolic. Like our feelings about the stars, chakras
operate at all levels, and most practitioners would agree that they are ultimately
spiritual, pointing the way to our souls’ dreams.

I’ll start by covering the most fundamental aspects of the chakras and how they
perform; this will be the subject of chapters 1 through 15. I open part 1 with a
question: what is a chakra? This entire book has been written to fully answer that
question, but I will first answer it in basic terms. I’ll include a thumbnail sketch
of the history of chakra-related ideas, spanning civilizations and eras, as well as
a review of ancient Hindu ideas about energy, as the venerable Hindu system is
one of the best known today. This information will help you set your discovery
of chakras in a chronological context and reveal the mindset upon which all
modern data has been built. Later in the book we’ll explore these Hindu roots in
much greater depth.
Next I’ll outline scientific thought about the nature of energy. After all, as I
mentioned, chakras are essentially energy centers, so it is helpful to get a
refresher on what we have learned about the physics of energy. Again, this will
be a brief backgrounder that I will expand upon later in the book.
As you’ll soon discover, chakras are powerful tools for spiritual transformation.
While they do play physical and psychological roles in our lives, ultimately
chakras encourage spiritual growth. To begin orienting you to this aspect, I’ll
briefly describe an energetic force that awakens the chakras and paves the way
toward enlightenment. This force is called kundalini energy.
A thorough understanding of chakras requires many more and much deeper
layers of understanding, including an exploration of the nature of the energy in
our bodies; the psychological, intuitive, and physiological effects of the chakras;
the imagery and symbolism people have associated with them; and both
traditional and contemporary views of chakras’ aspects that include everything
from spiritual icons to archetypes. We will begin this in-depth journey in Part 2.
Part 2 examines the most familiar chakra model: the Hindu system. We will
travel through the seven in-body chakras in order, from the base of the spine to
the top of the head. Our first goal is to look at how they function in the most
fundamental of ways: physically and psychologically. We also will begin to add
the layers of knowledge needed for a fuller picture: Sanskrit names, purpose,
color, associated gland, and the part of the body that each chakra manages. I’ll
outline practical considerations, including related diseases and psychological
functions, and move into more esoteric topics such as the gods and goddesses
that reign within each bodily star. Symbols, archetypes, intuitive abilities, and
explorations of secondary chakras, as well as other features, 
help round out our chakra profiles.
We then turn the corner to engage in Part 3, Fundamentals of Chakra Medicine.
Here you will learn chakra medicine procedures and techniques. The first
chapter in this part introduces the concept of chakra medicine: practices you can
follow to work with chakras for greater health and well-being. You will learn
various ways chakras can assist you, and I’ll provide a plethora of processes you
can use to do everything from locating your chakras to clearing and balancing
them. Practices are loosely organized into Western and Eastern approaches.
Then it will be time to walk through the next doorway and into Section 2,
Chakras in Depth: Historical, Scientific, and Cross-Cultural Understandings. Up
to this point, you will have spent your time with the book learning and enjoying
all the basics of chakra methodology as if peering through a telescope into the
great night sky. Section 2 is the equivalent of getting into a spaceship and
actually flying to those stars, carrying precise equipment such as spiritual
treatises, finely tuned microscopes, and geographic maps. You will embark upon
a thorough review of the history of chakra concepts, examining Vedic, tantric,
and yogic chakra legends stretching as far back as 12,000 BCE. This history,
which we’ll cover in Part 4, will prepare you for part 5: The Science of Subtle Energy.
Part 5 kicks off with a primer on physical and subtle energy that reviews
relevant classical and quantum physics and all things scientific about the nature
of energy. With a better understanding of the energetic scenery in which chakras
grow, you will be ready to picture chakras within their larger familial structure:
your entire energetic anatomy. To truly work with chakras, you must also place
them within the physical body, which you will examine to better understand the
chakras’ unique structure. Finally, you will devote your time to the scientific
explanation of kundalini, the force that activates the chakras.
Then it’s around the world you go, plunging into a deeply meaningful odyssey
in Parts 6 through 8. Chakras are not exclusively Hindu in origin; they have
appeared in jungles, deserts, mountains, and seasides around the world and
across time. In addition, they are the subject of modern academic, spiritual, and
philosophical disciplines. Dozens of chakra systems are outlined and explained
within the context of their spiritual and cultural surroundings. On this aroundthe-
world tour, you will visit Asia, discover the ancient chakra systems of
Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas, and investigate modern
Western chakra systems.
Unique and contemporary chakra concepts and systems are the subject of Part
9, Chakras Et Cetera: Natural and Unusual Chakras, coverage of the relationship
between chakras and the earth, animals, and skies, as well as an analaysis of
contemporary and emerging chakra systems. Does the earth itself have chakras?
What about animals? This fascinating review is followed by a one-two-three of
recent and unusual chakras that are just making their way into our common
chakra medicine bag.
As will become clear throughout your pilgrimage, chakras are nothing new—
and they are always new; we never complete our chakra adventure. These points
of light touch every aspect of our lives as embodied reflections of the starry sky
we gaze upon when we count our blessings.

 1972-Gopi Krishna

About the Author
Gopi Krishna was born in 1903 to parents of Kashmiri Brahmin extraction. His birthplace was a small village about twenty miles from the city of Srinagar, the summer capital of the Jammu and Kashmir State in Northern India. He spent the first eleven years of his life growing up in this beautiful Himalayan valley.
In 1914, his family moved to the city of Lahore in the Punjab which, at that time, was a part of British India. Gopi Krishna passed the next nine years completing his public school education. Illness forced him to leave the torrid plains of the Punjab and he returned to the cooler climate of the Kashmir Valley. During the succeeding years, he secured a post in the Public Works Department of the state, married and raised a family.
In 1946 he founded a social organization and with the help of a few friends tried to bring about reforms in some of the outmoded customs of his people. Their goals included the abolition of the dowry system, which subjected the families of brides to severe and even ruinous financial obligations, and the strictures against the remarriage of widows. After a few years, Gopi Krishna was granted premature retirement from his position in the government and devoted himself almost exclusively to service work in the community.
In 1967, he published his first major book in India, Kundalini — The Evolutionary Energy in Man. Shortly thereafter it was published in Great Britain and the United States and has since appeared in eleven major languages. The book presented to the Western world for the first time a clear and concise autobiographical account of the phenomenon of the awakening of Kundalini, which he had experienced in 1937. This work, and the sixteen other published books by Gopi Krishna have generated a steadily growing interest in the subjects of consciousness and the evolution of the brain. He also travelled extensively in Europe and North America, energetically presenting his theories to scientists, scholars, researchers and others.
Gopi Krishna’s experiences led him to hypothesize that there is a biological mechanism in the human body which is responsible for creativity, genius, psychic abilities, religious and mystical experiences, as well as aberrant mental states. He asserted that ignorance of the working of this evolutionary mechanism was the main reason for the present dangerous state of world affairs. He called for a full scientific investigation of his hypothesis and believed that such an objective analysis would uncover the secrets of human evolution. It is this knowledge, he believed, that would give mankind the means to progress in peace and harmony.
Gopi Krishna passed away in July 1984 of a severe lung infection and is survived by his wife, three children and grandchildren. The work that he began is currently being carried forward through the efforts of a number of affiliated foundations, organizations and individuals around the world.

There are few subjects relating to spiritual development so critically important and yet so incompletely understood as Yoga. Although the interest in Yoga that started in the West during the 1960’s has abated to some degree, the teaching of the various forms of the discipline has become well-established. In many cases, those who practise Yoga as it is generally taught in the West do so primarily as a means to improve health, reduce stress or maintain physical fitness.
The other aspect of Yoga given much attention is the control over the physical body that can be gained by long practice of its physical disciplines. Sensational accounts of yogis who can perform amazing feats of bodily control, such as suspension of breathing for extended periods of time, conscious control of the heartbeat and the ability to increase body heat in freezing temperatures get wide publicity. There are stories of yogis who can fly, live to an advanced age or perform amazing psychic feats. Although these stories are, for the most part, never properly verified, the general impression exists, both in the East and West, that Yoga can bestow magical or occult powers on those who learn its deepest secrets.
But, as Gopi Krishna points out, there is much more to Yoga than its benefits to health, control over the body and potential for developing paranormal abilities. The significance of Yoga, and the purpose for which the discipline as a whole was really designed, lies in its potential for enabling the practitioner to actually experience expanded states of consciousness and
to verify the existence of levels of creation other than the one we perceive with our material senses. The other benefits are minor when compared with the real goal.
Part of the reason for this lack of understanding is that in the West, Yoga is rarely presented in its complete form. Aspects of the disciplines which are critical to achieve real success, i.e., a balanced lifestyle, self-discipline and control of the senses, are not always emphasized, or if emphasized, they are not followed. Because the primary goal of Yoga is understood in such a limited way, few people who take up the discipline are willing to make the effort essential to real success and the potential for attaining highly enhanced states of perception remains largely untapped.
Another important aspect of Yoga is that if Kundalini, which Gopi Krishna claims is at the heart of the discipline, is the energy responsible for spiritual experience and mystical states of consciousness, then two logical conclusions can be drawn: 1) all religious experience owes its origin to this source and 2) the systematized discipline of Yoga corroborates the basic beliefs of religion which heretofore could only be accepted on faith. They are verifiable by personal experience. So, Yoga can provide a method that alleviates the discord and rivalry that exists between the adherents of the major faiths and also a foundation for the development of a more broadly-based scientific method that could reduce the long-standing conflict between science and religion.
Another reason for the need to properly study and understand Yoga is the occurrence of what is currently known as ‘Spiritual Emergence.’ This term is generally used to describe a set of physical and psychological symptoms which are experienced for varying periods of time and, if handled in a proper way, can result in enhanced levels of awareness, creativity and mental well-being. But some of the symptoms experienced in these cases resemble common forms of psychosis, and treatments done on this basis can be detrimental both to the process and to the mental and physical health of the individual.
For those who approach these processes with an open mind and who attempt to help the people who experience them there can be no doubt about the reality of the suffering that many of them endure, often unnecessarily. But until the physiological basis for this condition is actually determined and understood, it will not be possible to make substantial progress either in helping the people suffering from severe problems related to these processes or in making Spiritual Emergence a valid and accepted branch of medical study.
It was Gopi Krishna’s belief that the only way to establish the reality of spiritual experience on a firm scientific basis is to conduct research into the biological factors that are responsible for it. The discipline of Yoga, with its systematized and highly developed methods for enhancing the processes that lead to higher levels of consciousness, is the natural centre around which this research can proceed.
Although not a Yoga teacher by profession, Gopi Krishna’s more than 45 years of experience with the effects of a fully awakened Kundalini and the thorough research of the subject done during his lifetime gave him the insight and knowledge necessary for the understanding of this vast subject. The meticulous study of his own condition and the information that he gathered can be of invaluable help in undertaking a project of this kind.
If his theories about the nature of spiritual experience are verified by the research that he recommended, it will bring about a revolution in our understanding of the human condition and of the goal towards which the human race is currently evolving.

You’ve most likely picked up this book because you’re intrigued with the
nonphysical world and with learning more about developing your spiritual
abilities, perhaps even the ability to see “beyond the veil” into the invisible. Vast
dimensions of light and vibrant color, miraculous natural skyscapes and
numberless beings of amazing beauty and grace await you. Glimpsing more of
the world beyond the physical and the eternal realms with their angel choirs and
cosmic beings has brought amazing blessings to mystics who have been chosen
to receive a higher form of vision.
Although not a seer in the typical sense, I’ve been gifted with an ability to
perceive beyond what most of humanity has accepted as “reality” and thus am
able to share insights with you that can uplift and support your spiritual journey
of Self-discovery and union with your own perfect inner being. My hope is that
this book will provide an impetus for greater progress and a rediscovery of the
Divine within yourself and all of life.

This is not a book that will explain ways of developing psychic powers to
control the aura through intense mental or emotional processes or exercises.
That’s not the real goal of spiritual progress. In fact, I most often see auras when
I am not trying, when I’m simply “in presence,” when I am in a state of joy and
serenity, feeling great love for and oneness with all life. Heaven provides this
gift to me with the caveat that I use it to accentuate the good in all. Many true
seers observe both the bright and beautiful and the dark and less radiant. It takes
a conscious choice to behold the real within others and to then draw it from
within them with kind and compassionate communications, with loving and
considerate words.

By developing your aura and inner sight, you can expand the good within
yourself and others as well as protect yourself from unseen negative influences
and forces. As you learn the techniques I’ll share in this book to seal and expand
your aura, you will be able to safeguard loved ones, those entrusted to your care,
your assets and even your very life. Developing intuition is often a key in
meeting our long-term goals. Finding the truth and detecting the motives behind
others’ words and deeds can make the difference between success and failure in
your projects and your service to others.

I’ve been interested in spiritual experiences and the aura for as long as I can
remember. At eight years of age, having been raised Catholic, I was intrigued by
the stories of the amazing visionary experiences of those who could see and
converse with Mary or Jesus or various saints or angels. I would cry with joy
when watching movies on the lives of Saint Bernadette Soubirous of Lourdes,
France, or the children at Fatima, Portugal (Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco), or
Juan Diego of Guadalupe, Mexico. They all witnessed the glory and beauty of
Our Lady or Jesus, and I desired to purify myself so that I could, too.
In my early teens when I came upon the term third eye in a book by Lobsang
Rampa, my interest was again piqued. How could I develop higher vision to gain
insight into other realms, other dimensions? During the 1960s and 70s many
people were experimenting with extrasensory perception, sometimes using drugs
as a door to the unseen worlds. I felt there was a pure path to attaining certain
spiritual gifts and desired to wait until I knew that clear and true way.
My search for the truth was destined to take me beyond my traditional roots
and the churches available in the town where I grew up. I found, through my
mother, a book about the life of Edgar Cayce, the “Sleeping Prophet.” For the
first time, I saw in his biography the term aura and I began to research more
about this subject, reading all the books on it I could find. Edgar Cayce saw the
aura, or energy field, around every living thing; and in his “readings” he was
able to diagnose the causes and cures of hundreds of ailments.

I began reading about all manner of mystics, seers and saints who could
“read hearts” or “read minds” or had great intuition, among them Padre Pio,
Paramahansa Yogananda and Ramakrishna. These superconscious individuals
gained a higher level of awareness through various spiritual disciplines, such as
silent meditation and contemplation, devotional prayer and singing, and attuning
to the Creator through inner stillness. It seemed that they had become sensitized
to the subtle world and were then cognizant of what was playing out in others’
lives as revealed by their auric field. I began to understand that the aura was an
ovoid of frequencies, visual colors and vibrations that are constantly changing,
based on our consciousness, thoughts, feelings and actions.

Many of us “see” the auras of others through our gut feelings— our
intuition. We have this first sense about people we meet. We have a reaction at
the soul level to who they are and what they’re made of. We get a feeling of their
integrity or lack thereof. Many animals, especially horses, dogs, cats and other
domesticated pets, have this knack of reading people. Animals often react to the
sinister in individuals. These individuals can’t hide their unresolved angst from
the sensitive among us. In reality, this intuitive gift is something that each of us
has and can develop more fully. As you learn to focus on your Higher Self
through techniques such as those you’ll read about in this book, you will gently
and safely manifest even greater gifts of the Spirit as heaven sees fit to offer
them to you.

Part one shares the teachings of the Ascended Master El Morya, a great way
shower who for centuries has been at the forefront in the releases of higher truth
to mankind through various spiritual movements, including the Theosophical
Society, Anthroposophy, the Agni Yoga Society, the I AM Movement, the Bridge
to Freedom, The Summit Lighthouse and The Hearts Center. He offers his
advanced studies on the human aura for the new era into which we are moving.
These studies are for students advancing into higher consciousness, developing
their soul senses and beginning to see beyond the human veil into solar worlds of
joy, beauty and oneness. Perhaps you, too, have felt the shift. We are evolving
beyond dualistic thought with all of its divisions and isms and all that separates
us rather than unites us.

El Morya’s teaching is about developing solar awareness. He instructs us
how to increase the light within our auras so that we can be shining, Godconscious
beings. He shares how we can find our true nature—knowing our
oneness with God—and develop a beautiful and radiant halo as we become a sun
of love and light to all. In this new Selfhood, our aura changes from human to divine.

In the second part of this book, I share insights drawn from my journey of
self-discovery—my path as a Catholic youth through my thirty-plus years as an
ardent student of Elizabeth Clare Prophet 1 to the mystical experiences that have
resulted in my ability to commune with El Morya and receive his telepathic
“HeartStreams,” including these advanced teachings. You’ll learn in part two
how to use your own aura to do greater spiritual work by blessing life and
bringing about a new harmonic field of purity, wholeness and unity around the world.

These advanced studies on the human aura are for today. Our cultures and
our communities require them now. It is our time to shine and to fulfill our
greater mission, each of us messengers of light and love.
Thank you for reading and sharing this message of hope and joy.
