Magick + Metaphysics — chakras
Posted by The Spiritual Toolbox on
The chakra system as we know it here in the west has been heavily influenced and "white washed" by the western world and its influence on yoga culture.
The original texts when correctly interpreted by Sanskrit scholars state the chakras aren’t meant to be aligned, and that they’re actually figurative places meant to be used as placeholders for deities and Gods.
The validity of the westernised chakra system DEFINITELY still has value, however I just wanted to make it very clear that we are not embodying ancient knowledge by following the 7, 9 or 12 point chakra system - it's simply an adaptation and evolved system that fits within different constructs of belief systems.
