Scientific researchers at Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, using sophisticated scientific equipment, have shown that subtle energy has the properties of an electromagnetic current when flowing through acupuncture meridians but takes on the properties of coherent particle streams, similar to laser light, when projected out from the body through the hands of master Qigong healers who cure diseases by beaming their energy into the patient’s body. There are important chakras on the palms of the hands. To understand how we can beam energy (which is manifested as coherent light) from chakras, some understanding of the structure and dynamics of chakras would be useful.
How do Chakras Form?
Barbara Brennan, former NASA engineer and now world-renowned energy healer, describes chakras as “swirling cone-shaped vortexes in the human energy field.” From the perspective of plasma metaphysics, chakras (or “wheels” in Sanskrit) can be considered to be composed of two components: one, a magnetized node and two, a rotating cone structure or vortex that forms in the low density magnetic plasma that subtle bodies are composed of.
In laboratory experiments, it has recently been realized that a localized source at a fixed frequency excites a cone of radiation in a plasma crystal. The apex of the cone will be pointed towards the source and the angle of the cone is determined by its spin frequency. Excitations from fast moving particles in a plane below or next to a single-layered plasma crystal give rise to these cones. According to plasma cosmology, rotating galaxies in space are formed when filamentary currents pinch. This can happen when two currents move towards or cross each other. Dr David Tansely, a radionics specialist, says that, “The seven major chakras are formed at points where standing lines of light (or meridians) cross each other 21 times. The 21 minor chakras are located at points where the energy strands cross 14 times.” Based on these theories, we can infer how chakras develop in subtle bodies (composed of magnetic plasma or ‘magma’).
When meridians cross in our subtle bodies, they pinch each other, forming “knots” and collapse as compressed nodes of intense magnetic fields that pulsate at fixed frequencies. Super particles and objects are attracted to the magnetized nodes and are sucked into the subtle bodies at very high speeds using helical paths. This dynamical behavior of the incoming particles and the pulsations of the node excite cone structures on the surface of the body. The plasma of charged particles (known popularly in the metaphysical literature as “qi”, “prana” or “kundalini”), from the ionized environment, spirals into the nodes, swirling the magnetic plasma on the surface of the compact subtle body. It is then absorbed into the chakra and its energy is then transferred to various parts of the subtle body through the network of meridians (or filamentary currents) within the body.
Structure of Chakras
According to scientific researchers, a complicated elastic double vortex structure emanates from the excited region in a plasma crystal. Each region splits into an outgoing and inward-going vortex. The wave-fronts are circular near the source. This resembles how experimental metaphysicists, such as Charles Leadbeater and Brennan, have described and illustrated the spinal chakras – which come in pairs and have circular wave-fronts. A tube or channel connects the outward-facing chakra at the front of the body to the chakra behind the body – which faces in the opposite direction.
According to scientific researchers, the cones in plasma crystals possess an interesting multiple structure of nested cones. Nested cones within chakras in our magnetic plasma bodies have been observed by Brennan. According to Brennan, chakras appear “to be nested within each other like nesting glasses. Each chakra on each higher layer extends out farther in the auric field (to the edge of each auric layer) and is slightly broader than the one below it”. Each vortex metabolizes an energy that resonates with its particular spin frequency.
Alignment of Chakras
It is interesting to note that the cone structures of chakras are positioned at different angles in illustrations in the metaphysical literature. As noted earlier, the angle correlates with the frequency of the radiation source. It is well-known in metaphysics that not only are the spinal chakras positioned at different angles but that each chakra spins at a different frequency. The axis of each cone is aligned with the magnetic field generated by the node so that the apex of the cone of the chakra, which faces the central channels in the subtle body, has a different magnetic polarity from the base of the cone, which faces the environment. If we look at the central channel in the subtle body, the nodes would be distributed along the knots in the central channels at discrete intervals. This agrees well with metaphysical observations (and is consistent with the behavior of magnetic plasma, as noted in studies of plasma crystals). According to Brennan, “Their tips point into the main vertical power current and their open ends extend to the edge of each layer of the field they are located in.”
Absorption and Emission of Energy from Chakras
According to Brennan, each swirling vortex of energy appears to suck or entrain energy from the universal energy field. Chakras connect to the nodes of meridians which are areas of intense magnetic fields. They are therefore able to attract high-energy charged super particles and objects. The particles, after absorption, course through the meridians to distribute energy to various parts of the body – similar to what happens in the heart-lung and circulatory systems in the physical-biomolecular body in terms of distributing oxygen to the cells in the body. When particles in subtle bodies are energized they begin to respond to their environments. Leadbeater explains that one of the functions of chakras is to calibrate (or entrain) the frequencies of particles in order for them to be responsive to particular frequencies of radiations in the environment. Brennan also observes that the direction in which a chakra spins is important. When the chakra is spinning clockwise it is absorbing energy. When spinning anticlockwise – the flow of energy is in the reversed direction. In other words, it is emitting energy rather than absorbing.
Focused Beams of Light from Rotating Galaxies
According to scientific researchers, an ordered magnetic field plays an essential role in jet formation from a rotating accretion disk in an ionized environment. The process of forming jets (or focused beams of light) is thought to depend on how magnetic fields behave when they are swirled around by an accretion disk. Jets occur in cosmic plasma. As far back as 1918, astronomer H D Curtis noticed a jet from the centre of the galaxy M87, describing it as a “curious straight ray” emanating from the galaxy. Taking the form of a huge flashlight beam in space, a jet of electrons and protons traveling at near the speed of light can be seen in NASA’s image of the galaxy. The jet is a highly collimated plasma beam (i.e. like coherent laser light). Energetic astrophysical jets, with velocities approaching the speed of light, are seen on a variety of scales emerging from active galactic nuclei and young stars. It is thought that they result from the dynamics of accretion disks rotating around a large mass. The energy radiates from charged particles that are moving in a curved orbit (typically around a magnetic field aligned with the jet).
Focused Beams of Light from Rotating Chakras
The chakra is a rotating accretion disk on a relatively large compact subtle body. We also know (from the above discussion) that the nodes of chakras are locations of intense magnetic fields and charged particles move in helical or spiral paths around this field. Magnetic fields in plasma move with it. The effect of the movement of the particles, plunging into the subtle body at high speeds, is to effectively swirl the intense magnetic field around the axis of the cone of the chakra. This causes the magnetic field to twist, rise and eject-out as a jet of collimated light. The acceleration mechanism for most jets is magneto-hydrodynamic. (Magneto-hydrodynamics provides a general framework to study the activities of magnetic plasma.) The jet being issued will be parallel to the spin axis of the chakra.
Jets or directed beams of light have been seen in photographs taken during events where subtle energetic practices take place (for example: Reiki, Qigong and Christian “Praise and Worship”). There are also Hindu, Taoist, Buddhist and Christian images showing jets of light issuing-out from the palms of saints or deities. There are important chakras (and acupoints) on the palms of the hands. The frequency and spin rate of the chakra would have a direct effect in determining the energy and coherence of the beam. One of the seers of the Fatima apparitions of “Mary”, “Lucia”, revealed that during one of the apparitions, “Mary” opened her hands and “rays of light” issued from them.
This may be done simply by reversing the normal direction of the chakra spin (so that energy is emitted rather than absorbed) and increasing the rotational speed of the chakra in the palm (by mentally focusing on the specific chakra or acupoint in the palm of the hand). Jets may also be issued from other chakras or acupoints – for example from the heart chakra. For example, when ‘Jesus’ appeared to Saint Faustina, two beams of light issued from his heart – one beam was blue and the other was red. Interestingly, jet formations in cosmic objects such as galaxies also show two beams of light – one blue and the other red!
Black Holes and Chakras
According to scientists, black holes also issue jets. In fact the galaxy M87 (cited above) which issues jets, is suspected to harbor a black hole in its nucleus. (The black hole is then analogous to the node and the galaxy to the cone structure of the chakra.) This is surprising because, so far as we know, the strong gravitational fields of black holes absorb energy – letting nothing to escape. (Small black holes, though, give out Hawking radiation.) If we use the same explanation as we did for chakras, this may be because of the direction of the spin of the accretion disks around black holes. Does this mean that if the direction of the spin of the accretion disk of a rotating (“Kerr”) black hole is reversed it will start ejecting energy instead of absorbing? Black holes with highly energetic jets spin the fastest according to scientists.
If we further apply what we have learnt about the structure of chakras to black holes, we would expect black holes to come in pairs. Each black hole would then be connected by a tube (popularly called a “worm hole”) which connects to another black hole in another part of our universe. This worm hole may be long or very short – so that there is a double vortex structure (like in chakras) connected by a short tube – giving rise to jets that eject in opposite directions from astrophysical objects. Astrophysical jets that emanate from opposite directions of astrophysical objects have been seen. We would also expect black holes to reside within all galaxies as they are simply entry points into the network or web of “meridians” (in this case filamentary currents) that transfer energy from one point to another, throughout the universe.
To carry the analogy with chakras further, this would imply that black holes and galaxies are formations in an invisible subtle body – the subtle body of our universe already discussed in the author’s article Acupuncture Meridians and the Cosmic Spider Web. This also suggests that this subtle body is composed of (dark) magnetic plasma. We are living inside the subtle body of this universe – on a planet that is sitting on the edge of one of its chakras – a chakra we call the Milky Way.
