Healing the Eighth Rose Thymus Chakra

One of the major sections of my Chakra Compendium is about how to work with and heal aspects of the chakra system.

Let’s remember first that any incarnate being has an energy system. All. No exceptions. Here is where chakras come from: When a being incarnates, there is a burst of brilliant light. I’d call that The Divine Spark. It animates all your systems. If you’ll view that burst of light, that Divine Spark, through a prism, you will see the eight major chakras.

I know there are a squillion chakra teachers in the world, and I welcome their insights, but I also feel strongly that each of us perceives chakras in our own way, through our own filters.

That’s why I only take students who understand that yes, I will teach you my system, but I will not tout my system as the only one or the right one. My system is mine, and if it makes yours accessible to you, then there’s the magic.

So given that, let me say that in forty years of working with my own, and the chakra systems of many others, I have never once seen a blocked chakra. If a chakra were truly blocked, that create would no longer be incarnate.

I prefer to think of chakras as over-functioning, and most probably compensating for under-functioning chakras. The most vital point about the chakra system is that it is a system. It’s how they work together that matters.

For the next few days, we will be exploring all sorts of healing modalities for each chakra. Understand that what might heal my first chakra might not even touch yours — we’re different, Beloved, and our healing methods will likely be different as a result.

The Eighth Rose Thymus Chakra comes with the Grace of Compassion, and teaches each of us the value of caring in the world. It’s all about how recognizing that everyone here is really doing the best they can with what they know. Compassion, a form of impersonal love, works as the very best collaborator here on Earth for relationships of all kinds.

Consider these as possibilities:

All forms of worship
Automatic writing
Gratitude practices

In addition, there are simple things you can do: wear rose, drink rose-charged water, make sure you can see rose wherever you spend most of your time, eat rose foods, do rose breathing work, visualize rose. I could go on and on.

The point is to find methods that work for you, and use them.

And always, whenever you are working on one specific chakra, make sure you check the ones above and below it. If you’re focused on Rose Thymus, check on Violet Crown and Red Root.

Managing your own energy system is a vital skill, one that few of us are taught, and when you learn how to do it, life, I promise you, gets a whole lot easier..
