Miracles arise from acts of service,
and the seven energy centers of the body (the chakras) play a role
in these invisible acts of power.
Invisible acts of power are defined
by the author as generous actions that are given without a private
agenda or expectation of credit or reward - such as love, intuition,
compassion, purpose and spiritual support.
They are the means through which grace is channeled into someone's
life. There is a hierarchy of grace. The seven stages of the practice
of compassion and generosity correspond to the seven chakras.
However, grace (a spiritual gift) enters from above and works its
way down, while the chakras begin at the bottom and progress upward.
The first three are about survival instinct, protection.
Insecurities about our daily survival are rooted here. The latter
chakras move more into the spiritual. We are meant to go through these
seven stages in order to gain self-understanding.
The greatest power you can have is self-esteem.
Grace, intuition and power all work together in our lives. Our power
can impact the life of every person we encounter.
There are three myths about power, which are as follows:
1. There is not enough to go around.
2. Empowering someone else gives them power over us.
3. Material power brings happiness.
The truth is that each of us is exactly
where we're supposed to be and that every moment is an opportunity
to give or receive support. We are not meant to live our lives in
isolation. When one person reaches out to help another, both people
feel healing effects.
It has even been proved that each person
needs four hours a month of face-to-face volunteering of some type
in order for the body and spirit to thrive.
The first chakra is located at the base
of the spine. Its key word is tribe and its motto is "We
are all one." This chakra is referred to as the root chakra,
and it serves to ground us.
This chakra is about gifts of the earth, such as food and shelter.
It provides us with our culture and identifies us with a place and
people. The first chakra is about what we are willing to do in order
to get power of body, mind and spirit, use it and keep it.
Each trial in life teaches us about our ability to survive. When we're
in fear, our capacity to share and be compassionate is lessened. The
task of the first chakra is to accept our physical life and the body
it came in.
Each of us has some flaw to endure in order for us to change and become
more spiritual. We each must learn to leave our tribe and move out
of what is familiar. We all depend upon each other for our survival.
The second chakra is located in the
area below the waist, near the reproductive organs. Its word is relationship
and its motto is "Honor one another."
The second chakra, while still about survival, is also about financial
protection, financial generosity, creative support, personal belongings,
relationships, sexuality, and the empowerment of others.
If you will note the area where your
body responds when offered help or when giving it, it will help you
know which chakra you are working from.
For example, financial stress often shows up in a person's lower back.
We rely on the second chakra to evaluate other's energy fields.
If you are a person who acknowledges and supports other's creative
dreams, you will draw to yourself everything you need for your own
creativity. But first you must have the creative courage to risk everything.
The third chakra is located in the solar
plexus. Its key word is self and its motto is "Honor thyself."
This chakra has to do with ego energy, gifts of self-esteem, unconditional
support, friendship, personal power and ethics.
Those who lack self-esteem look to the physical world to measure their
success. You live more from this energy center than any of the others.
It affects the ability to have a happy life. It is the center of gut
Fear of being alone is a third chakra fear. Courage comes under the
third chakra - risking our safety and accepting the consequences of
our actions. Under this chakra, in addition to physical courage, also
The fourth chakra is located near the
heart. Its key word is love and its motto is "Love is
Divine Power". This is the seat of compassion and where ego and
spirit meet. It is the great mediator.
Love is the key energy of this chakra. At fourth level chakra we move
from the physical and into the spiritual. This chakra deals with love
for humanity. Many people are only capable of giving from the first
three charkas - food, shelter, and financial aid.
Some people have a fear of making emotional connections. Sometimes
it's hard to be with the weak and infirm, because it reminds us of
our own frailties.
Yet in making heart contact, we experience God within that other person.
Forgiveness falls under the fourth chakra. So does sensing another's
The fourth chakra is about giving for its own sake. We can never know
the full effect of our love upon another. The fourth chakra provides
the kind of intuition where you act on something and then realize
you acted without conscious thought.
In this chakra intuition pushes through past fears and hesitations.
The fourth chakra is about loving our neighbors as ourselves.
The fifth chakra is located at throat
level. The fifth chakra's motto is "Surrender Personal Will to
Divine Will." The fifth chakra is the energy of determination.
This chakra is about sense of purpose, discipline, choices and consequences,
right speech and intention. Confession (which means withdrawing energy
from actions you regret having set in motion) is a fifth chakra action.
We move outside our usual routine. It involves being receptive to
other peoples' words and experiences and grateful for the wisdom they
impart to us. Here we learn not to repress intuition.
Intuition lets us know when our mind, body, and spirit are out of
balance. Using intuition is healing. There is no more powerful act
than that of making a choice. Acting on intuition will never leave
you with a feeling of betrayal.
The sixth chakra is located in the center
of the forehead and is sometimes referred to as the "third eye".
This chakra is the energy of rational thought and involves gifts of
the mind, such as wisdom and optimism.
The key word is wisdom and its motto is "Seek only the
truth." This chakra is about releasing our attachment to things,
people, and expectations. It is involved in clairvoyance. What you
see as your purpose on earth strongly influences how you feel about
The mental energy of the sixth chakra helps the universe send you
synchronistic events. The sixth chakra holds your belief patterns
about the universe, goodness of others and the possibility of divine
This is the contact between divine mind
and human mind. Synchronicity is energy of the seventh chakra. You
can help synchronicity, which requires lots of energy, by living in
Synchronistic events are a creative force as well as sometimes being
emergency intervention. When we find synchronicity in our lives, it
is always up to us to recognize that an opportunity is being presented.
When you're stuck and need a synchronistic event you can say a prayer.
Then let it go and the laws of attraction will provide you with a
synchronistic event. You will always receive help within a second
of a prayer.
You must see everything from that second on as the answer to your
prayer. We have the power to choose our attitudes over life situations,
no matter how bad the situation might be.
The seventh chakra is located in the
crown of the head. It is the center of higher consciousness and gifts
of the spirit. The key word is faith and the motto is "Live
in the Present Moment."
The seventh chakra represents the purest energy of grace. It is about
angels in disguise and good Samaritans. Our angels masquerade as friends,
family and strangers. They appear at the time we are in need.
Spiritual awakenings take place in the seventh chakra. Prayer is the
seventh chakra's greatest power. Through the seventh chakra divine
energy enters our consciousness. This is where miracles take place.
Miracles are in the eye of the beholder. The smallest act of service
can seem like a miracle to the person receiving it. Sometimes two
people meet only for a few minutes - minutes that change the life
of at least one of them.
Car breakdowns are a good example of how the universe puts together
two people who need to meet. We must remember that grace can manifest
in our lives at any time. The seventh chakra is where you and the
divine come together.
Just as there are seven invisible acts
of power, there are also seven invisible facts of power. They
are as follows:
1. Life is a spiritual journey.
2. Your biology and spirit want to serve.
3. Intuition influences every choice you make in life.
4. Your intuition and generosity evolve as your personal
5. Angels and grace are real.
6. You are never alone.
7. Everything you do matters.
There are many ways you can empower
a soul - hope, encouragement, and kindness, to name a few. Empowering
another is also an act of self-empowerment.
Faith is active, not passive. It is
belief put into action. It is not about the past or the future. It
is about the present moment. Our difficulties and joys develop faith
We need to accept ourselves and our
power. Human life is about learning to manage our power. This involves
working with our energy and to whom we give it.
You must not give too much of yourself or give for the wrong reasons.
Rescuer fatigue can manifest in depression, emotional exhaustion and
chronic pain. The seven chakras are sensitive to the energy of other
Caroline Myss says, "We act divinely
when we act in service to others." This is the way that God works
anonymously through us.
Our life is meant to be both physical and spiritual and it's through
our life experiences that we learn our spiritual purpose.
Each one of us can be a channel for
divine grace. It is our task to put faith into action in the universe,
that it may do its invisible work.
