In the early 1990’s I was fascinated at the notion of how we even exist in this dimension. My spiritual thirst had already been quite awakened, and I was studying different religions and spiritual practices. I was also honing my intuitive abilities, studying a spiritualist ministry, praying, meditating and doing spiritual counseling work.
My sense was that everything that is physical has a higher component, not limited to space or time. I heard about the chakras and started to focus on them because at first, I understood them to be vortexes of energy. Seven Chakras lined up more or less along the column of the spine. Most of the information I found was anatomical (connection to eastern medicine and the meridians, color, musical key note, symbol, etc.). But I did not find any useful information as to why we have chakras or their function.
In 1992, I started my studies at the California Institute for Human Science (CIHS), founded by Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama, one of my main spiritual teachers. He had written two books on the chakras, Theories of the Chakras, and Awakening the Chakras and Emancipation. These two books were fascinating and very fulfilling, linking the chakras, yoga, yoga exercises, spiritual practices, historical writings and affects to awakening the chakras, and more.
As I kept studying the chakras in my intuition and meditations, I realized they were much more than ‘energy centers’ or ‘vortexes’. The chakras were not just about energy (like fuel), but consciousness itself radiating through them, affecting the four archetypes of what I came to know as the “whole human being” (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual). I came to sense the chakras hold the truth of our uniqueness in this dimension from a higher (non-local) level of being, and that each chakra had its own unique properties and attributes.
With more meditation, intuition and spiritual consultations of people, I began to realize that one chakra may be more ‘dominant’ than the others. It was most surprising, because the more people I worked with, the more I noticed this tendency that one chakra would be more prevalent than the others.
To me, it was very similar to being right or left-handed. While one hand may be more dominant and used more than the other, there is nothing wrong with the non-dominant hand; it is simply a preference.
So now, I really began to notice and look for in people that one chakra may be more dominant than the others, while all were functioning. Now, I felt I was on to something about how we are ‘held’ in this dimension as unique, physical beings with unique attributes from a higher level of being.
As I continued my work, I also realized that each chakra has one or more psychic abilities that are unique to that chakra, and because chakras are “on” 24/7 (not limited to space or time) so are the psychic abilities on at all times. (Although many people are unaware that such abilities exist, so the intuition is not realized for what it is and is not cultivated.)
A theory started to develop, that a person has a dominant chakra and that its main psychic ability would influence the way a person perceives (and reacts to) reality. An example would be if a person’s heart (Anahata) chakra were dominant,
the psychic ability of empathy would also be more prevalent than the other chakras’ abilities. This means that while all other chakras are open and functioning, the person with the dominant heart chakra would tend to perceive reality through the intuitive abilities of empathy more than the other abilities. This would ‘color’ the way the person perceives reality, similar to looking through a certain colored lens; everything observed is affected by the dominant chakra, which would also tend to affect that person’s reactions to their perceptions.
From there, my theory of dominant chakras helped to grow my understanding of the whole human being, which led to:
• Cataloging my many spiritual consultations with people, the dominant chakra types, psychic abilities for each chakra, and how that affects the perception of reality
• The writing of two books: Eye of the Lotus: Psychology of the Chakras, and I Can Relate; How we intuitively choose the people in our lives
• Teaching many workshops on dominant chakra theory in the U.S. and Canada
• Teaching “Theories of the Chakras” at CIHS
• Creating a unique form of subtle energy healing based on the chakras (PSI energy) called Integrative Chakra Therapy® (ICT), based on my theory of dominant chakras. Affecting the four archetypes of the whole human being (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual)
• Creating a school of healing in the U.S. and Canada, teaching ICT subtle energy healing (now for almost 20 years with over 500 students/graduates
Interested in knowing your dominant chakra? There is a Chakra Tick List in my book I Can Relate, where you can self-evaluate, as well as learn a lot from reading my two books.
Book an appointment with me in person or by phone/skype for a spiritual consultation.
By knowing the dominant chakra, you are also looking at the way the character of your personality has incarnated in this lifetime. You learn so much more by knowing how you perceive reality based on which chakra is more dominant than the others!
By knowing dominant chakra theory and increasing your spiritual practices, you are awakening yourself to a much deeper understanding of the spirituality of the whole human being and to deeper levels of your own sacred life path.
