64 On Chakras

Beloved Amber,

Do not worry about Chakra six, or five, or eight, or fourteen.

This is just symbolism.

They were necessary at one time, but for an initiate they should be understood as what they are.

The body does have energy centres, and this can be called chakras.
But the symbolism of Chakras in some scriptures is also referring to different levels of awareness.
And in these cases it is more important to understand the processes being described then to get hung up on the details of the symbolism.

What this talk about the "sixth chakra" really refers to is that when you reach a certain state in meditation, you go beyond the internal division you and all human beings have within; the division between the part of you that is male and the part of you that is female.
