Welcome to our first blog of this series as we dive into the magic of Ancient Egypt. In this segment, we will discuss The Chakra Healing system of Ancient Egypt and its 13 chakra wheels. Our next 3 courses in the Inner Sanctum will focus on Star magic. We will explore the connections the ancients had to the power of the constellations and healing of the dream temples. The first book in the series will be Dream Temples And Star Magic.
A History of Chakra Wheels
The idea of Chakra wheel energy systems is indeed ancient. Most famous are the Hindu and Buddhist systems, celebrated through the practice of yoga and other such healing modalities. Chakras are seen as energy centers, funnels in your energetic bodies which balance and empower all parts of you, mind, body, and spirit. From an energetic point of view, the healthy functioning of your chakras is vital for your health and well-being.
Chakra systems and chakra healing have been around in Hindu, Buddhist, Tibetan Buddhist and Ancient Egyptian spirituality for millennia. However, it wasn’t until 1918 that Arthur Avalon introduced them to the Western World. He published a book of translations of Indian text which he called The Serpent Power. Madame Blavatsky’s work within the Theosophical movement of the early twentieth century in New York expanded the chakras into mainstream occult thought.
Alesiter Crowley the famous/infamous magician (depending on your magical leanings) interestingly worked with the seven (Hindu/Buddhist) major chakra wheels in his Book of Thoth. Rather than work with the thirteen chakra wheels of Ancient Egypt to which Thoth is an ancient deity (meter.)
Some of the Tibetan Buddhist practices 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. Sonya Roy points to 13 chakras used in the magic of Ancient Egypt. She is a metaphysical lecturer and practitioner, and author of 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 others reach beyond it.
Dream Temples And Star Magic - The Magic of Ancient Egypt
The relationship of Star Magic, the power of the constellations, and chakra healing have been key elements in the magic of Ancient Egypt. We have found them to fit beautifully into our Transmutational Meditation method we’ll share with you. We love this method as it brings you into the feeling of doing the work along with us. This form of meditation marries beautifully with the practices of the Ancient Egyptian Dreaming temples.
Join us for our 4-week course working with The Chakra Healing System of Ancient Egypt. It is based on our latest book Dream Temples And Star Magic - Ancient Egyptian Chakra Wheels. We will focus on healing sorcery for personal evolution. We will employ meditation, story, and the ritual magic of Ancient Egypt to teach you how to heal and empower your chakras.
