My Favorite Quotes About Chakras “The abdominal center governs the small vital movements, the little lusts, greediness, desires, and the small sense-movements.”—Sri Aurobindo “If the general law of the body be that of cheer, hope, joy, love... and desire for health and happiness give growth to tissue, strong and normal action to the organs of the body, and thereby health in general - while fear melancholy, malice, hatred, dejection, loss of confidence and all other morbid states of mind tend to the lassitude of the functions and the depletion of the organs—I feel that too much enthusiasm cannot be raised in the reader's mind upon these all-important facts.”—On Healing, Olsten (So, in other words, thinking about all good things as often as possible is better for you, your family and the world.) “The true disciple is one whose courage is of that rare type which enables the possessor to face the chaos of the world. He is one who has the eye to see beyond the fogs and miasmas of the earth to the center of peace within all things. At first these qualities breed loneliness and aloofness in the disciple. They are not due to any separative tendency, but to the nature of the Way itself, in that he begins to experience a seeming irreconcilable contrast between his own vibration and those emanating from the world in general. All that is left for the disciple is to become his own guide and to find his own way Home.” —Yogi Ramsuratkumar, Truman Caylor Wadlington
“Let the disciple seize hold of the tail of the serpent of wisdom, and having with firmness grasped it, let him follow it into the deepest centre of the Hall of Wisdom. Let him not be betrayed in to the trap set for him by the serpent of illusion, but let him shut his eyes to the colorful tracery upon its back, and his ears to the melody of its voice. Let him discern the jewel (The Third Eye), set in the forehead of the serpent whose tail he holds, and by it radiance traverse the miry halls of maya.” —The Old Commentary, Yogi Ramsuratkumar “In every individual there lies unlimited potentiality. One need only to cut asunder the snare of the mind and senses and renounce the finite for the infinite. Once a person can catch a glimpse of infinite reaches of awareness, the perfect forces, the wide expanses of knowledge, and the joyous freedom of being which awaits him in the unexplored regions of his inner self-existence, there will be no turning back as he takes to the path leading to divine consciousness, for nothing will mean so much as the treasure of his own enlightened being.” —Truman Caylor Wadlington According to Dr. Brian Logan, a phenomenal chiropractor in Coral Gables (Tel: 305-669-0070, Miami, FL), “once the 5th lumbar is rotated or tilted by sacral misalignment or subluxation, that vertebra and every vertebrae above it begin to alter their position under the control of spinal musculature, to minimize the effect of the sacral misalignment. This can result in scoliosis, alterations in the normal curves, misalignment between two of the vertebrae (subluxations). This causes nerve irritation, muscle spasms and abnormal function in various parts of the body.” Chiropractors, physical therapists and osteopaths are among the health care professionals who all have methods of analysis and correction to deal with problems of the sacrum. Obviously, because of its importance, it is not a good idea to have anyone do adjustments to this part of the body who is not a qualified professional! The longer these misalignments are left uncorrected, the more they affect the structural physical body, the nerves, and the areas of the body that those nerves control, including organs, blood supply, endocrine system, muscles, joints, ligaments, and more. When these abnormal functions become chronic, the non-physical energy body is more deeply and profoundly affected, conversely. Obviously, it goes both ways. For this reason, it is important to work on both systems, not just one or the other. Work with a good chiropractor for the structure (one who does not 'crack' or 'twist' you), and work with the chakra(s) that correlate to the area of the misalignments.
All of these relationships are probably interactive not only on a physical level, but on an energy level as well. And although the non-physical tends to create the physical in most instances, imbalances in the physical body can effect the non-physical energy body as well. This is why Yoga, as ancient as it is, continues to be one of the best habits to form for physical health and spiritual awareness. “The Orange Ray is a warm, positive and stimulating color, influencing primarily the vital processes of assimilation and circulation. It regulates the intake of food and is based on the spleen. The Orange vibrations are essential for health and vitality. “This color's intrinsic elements are a vitality-giving power (life force). Should your trouble be loss of vitality and listlessness, then you are in need of restoring Orange Ray and should repeat the following 7 times: “The Life-giving Orange Ray of the Cosmos permeates my being by way of the solar plexus filling me with vitality and the joy of life, revivifying my glands, recharging my etheric body, and rejuvenating every atom and particle of my being.” —S.G.J.
