Leslie Temple-Thurston is the author of a book called Keys to Ascension. These next chakra teachings were inspired by her work.

Let me remind you that the most important thing about the chakras is that they are a system. They’re meant to work together as a system.

One of the major areas of differing chakra theories, once we’ve divided and conquered them, so to speak, is what happens between each chakra.

Remember the color list? Here it is again:


The Keys to Ascension are revisited here in the order of the chakra system.

This chakra in-between occurs above the First Red Root Chakra, and below the Second Orange Sacral Chakra.

The belief that lives between First and Second is: Have faith in the support of the invisible realms.

The In-Between color is RedOrange.

The Grace of the First Red Root Chakra is Life. The Grace of he Second Orange Sacral Chakra is Passion.

A belief in the genuine, benevolent support of the invisible realms, be they expressed as angels or demons or both makes sense as our energy pulses with the life force itself and rises to our passions.

Genuine passions usually arise from within, and what better place for those energies in the invisible realms to both inspire and support you?

Learning to heed those inner promptings demands that we make a choice about whether we live in a friendly, read: on our side, universe or an adversarial one.

I’m with Mr. Einstein. I choose friendly, neutral benevolence every time.
