At Kymia Arts we have taken the Vedic Chakra System, Astrology, and Alchemy and transposed them, one upon another, to achieve an integrative system of diagnoses and medicine. Through observation and practice, we have begun to recognize relationships between the different energy centers of the body and the effects our metallic oils have on these personal dis-eases.
It can be noted that the energy centers of the body are systematically placed in a vertical pattern, traveling from the base of the spine to the crown of the skull. Each wheel of energy overlapping the center either above or below it, sharing in certain attributes of its neighbor’s main characteristics. Using the energy centers of the root chakra and the sacral chakra as an example (Saturn/Lead & Jupiter/Tin): The root chakra touches on aspects of personal sexuality and how you relate to and feel comfortable with your own sexuality, whereas the sacral chakra would touch more on how you express that sexuality outwardly. Both overlap on the area of human sexuality. These two centers also share a common denominator for working on different aspects of the Kidneys to regulate hormone secretions, diminish fatigue, and increase awareness.
To see the relationship the chakra centers have to their neighbors is an easy stride to take. But more expansive relationships have been recognized during our studies. Connections such as: the Brow Chakra (Oil of Silver) to the Sacral Chakra (Oil of Tin), the Throat Chakra (Oil of Mercury) to the Solar Plexus (Oil of Iron), just to name a few. These connections become practical in the application of metallic oils for health purposes, both physical and metal, because it allows us to see where an individual’s ailments are stemming from and attack the problem at its source.
Most often a person’s disease will cascade down to other centers rather than extending upwards, jumping the center immediately below it to land on the next one. (Ex: throat chakra jumps heart chakra and lands on solar plexus, then overlapping the sacral chakra). It looks much like a stone skipping across water. The first skip covers the largest length since it holds the blunt of the energy. With each subsequent skip, the stone loses momentum, causing the length between skips to shorten until eventual the rock falls into the water. The first point of contact and the energy behind that system is where the problem is rooted.
Many modes of medicine will focus on symptoms, or the different areas where the “stone has skipped,” but few practices address the energy that first went in to skipping the stone. When we understand the relationships the energy centers have to one another in the body, we can follow the skips back to the point of origin to effectively stamp out any physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual disturbances’ at the source.
It is also seen that each energetic system in the body builds upon the one immediately below it. If your root chakra is unbalanced it will cause issues in the sacral chakra, which in return will cause issues in the solar plexus which is situated above the sacral chakra. This can cause the entire energetic system to be out of balance and manifest as a multitude of physical and emotional symptoms within the individual.
There are many points of view you can take to begin to pinpoint the cause of physical and mental diseases. Understanding the relationship of these energetic systems to each other is a corner stone of achieving perfect health, and mental and emotional mastery.
