Welcome to the first blog in our series on the Ancient Egyptian Chakra System!
In the first book in our Ancient Egyptian Magic series, Dream Temples and Star Magic, we’ll explore the connections the ancients had to the power of the constellations and the healing of the dream temples.
But today, we’re going to take a look at the Chakra Healing System of Ancient Egypt, and its 13 chakra wheels.
That’s right, 13 chakra wheels!
The ancient Egyptians were way ahead of their time when it came to energy healing. They knew that there was more to life than just the physical body. They also understood the importance of balancing the chakras, which are the energy centers in our bodies.
So, if you’re looking for a way to heal your body, mind, and spirit, then the Ancient Egyptian Chakra Healing System is for you.
Just be prepared for an unearthly ride!
Chakras are energy centers in your body that balance and empower your mind, body, and spirit. They’re like the funnels that keep your life force flowing smoothly.
Chakra systems have been around for millennia in Hindu, Buddhist, Tibetan Buddhist, and Ancient Egyptian spirituality. But it wasn’t until 1918 that Arthur Avalon introduced them to the Western world. He wrote a book of translations of Indian text called The Serpent Power. Madame Blavatsky’s work within the Theosophical movement of the early twentieth century in New York also helped to popularize chakras.
So, what are chakras exactly? Well, think of them as the cosmic Wi-Fi routers of your body. They connect you to the universal energy field, and they help to distribute that energy throughout your body.
When your chakras are balanced, you feel good. You have energy, you’re focused, and you’re connected to your inner wisdom. But when your chakras are blocked or unbalanced, you can start to experience physical, mental, and emotional problems.
That’s where chakra healing comes in. Chakra healing is a way to clear and balance your chakras so that you can live your best life. There are many different ways to do chakra healing, such as yoga, meditation, and crystal therapy.
Alesiter Crowley, the famous/infamous magician (depending on your magical leanings), worked with the seven (Hindu/Buddhist) major chakra wheels in his Book of Thoth. But rather than working with the thirteen chakra wheels of Ancient Egypt, to which Thoth is an ancient deity (neter), he chose to stick with the seven.
Some Tibetan Buddhist practices also identify five, rather than seven, major chakras in the energetic bodies. These are essentially very similar to the seven chakra wheel system, with just a merging of some of the energies.
However, metaphysical lecturer and practitioner Sonya Roy points to 13 chakras used in magic of Ancient Egypt in her book, The 13th Chakra System of Ancient Egypt. This 13 chakra format is the system we’ll incorporate into our work with chakra healing and the magic of Ancient Egypt. Some of the Egyptian chakras are similar to the Hindu/Buddhist system, while others reach beyond it.
So, why work with the 13 chakra system of Ancient Egypt instead of the more well-known seven chakra system? Well, for one thing, it’s more fun. And for another thing, it allows you to tap into a wider range of energies.
