QUESTIONER: Is it correct that a balanced entity would not be swayed towards either positive or negative emotions, and would remain unemotional in any situation he might confront?

RA: This is an incorrect application of the balancing method that we discussed [the training of mind]. The goal of the exercise we gave you -- first experiencing your feelings, then consciously discovering their polarity in the mind -- is not to experience a smooth flow of feelings both positive and negative while remaining unswayed. Rather, the goal is to achieve a [non-emotional] condition of always being unswayed. This is a simpler result, although it does take much practice.

The catalyst of life-experience works in order for the learning of 3rd density [and every density]. However, if a being has some form of emotional response, even if it is only observed [and not acted upon], the entity is still using the 3D catalyst for learning. After a long period of learning, the end result is that the catalyst is no longer needed.

At this stage of development, the entire density is no longer needed [for that soul]. This [balanced condition] is not indifference or objectivity, but rather, a finely tuned compassion and love which sees all things as love. Seeing "all things as love" elicits no emotional response due to life-catalyst. Thus, the entity is now able to become a co-Creator of their experiences. This is a truer balance [than trying to be unswayed by the normal flow of emotions]. {v. II}

BALANCE AND PERSONAL ATTACK

QUESTIONER: So for a person who is truly balanced, if an animal or person attacks them, they would not have an emotional response, but just love them, see both of them as the Creator, and understand their actions as the result of their own free will. Is this correct?

RA: This is basically correct. Of course, the balanced entity will see that in the apparent attack of another person, the cause of their action is more complex than the cause of the animal's attack. Thus [in understanding the complexity of others' actions], the balanced entity is open to many more opportunities for service to others. {v. II}

QUESTIONER: Would a perfectly balanced entity feel any emotional response in being attacked?

RA: This is correct [there would not be any emotional reaction]. The [only] response is love.

QUESTIONER: In 3rd density, it is difficult to maintain this [loving] response, especially if the attack results in physical pain, but I assume that this response [love] should be maintained even through physical pain or the loss of one's life. Is this correct?

RA: This is correct, and further, is of major importance in understanding the principle of balance. Balance is not indifference, but rather, the observer not blinded by any feelings of separation and fully imbued with love. {v. II}

QUESTIONER: How can we balance the ego?

RA: We cannot work with this concept [of the "ego"], as it is misapplied and understanding cannot come from it. {v. I}

INTRODUCTION TO CHAKRA BALANCING

QUESTIONER: What do you mean by the word, "balancing"?

RA: Universal infinite Love creates Light, which becomes love / light, and then streams into the planetary system according to the pattern of Earth's electromagnetic web or nexi of points of entrance. These in-streamings are available to the individual -- who, like the planet, is also a web of electromagnetic energy fields of points of entrance.

In a balanced individual, each E center is balanced and functioning brightly and fully. [However, for most people], the blockages of Earth's electromagnetic web cause some distortion of intelligent energy, and their own mind / body / spirit blockages further distort or unbalance this energy. There is one energy [although it may be distorted]. It may be understood as love / light or intelligent E. {v. I}

BALANCING THE 7 CHAKRAS

QUESTIONER: What are the steps we need to follow to balance ourselves?

RA: The steps are only one: understanding the energy centers of the mind / body / spirit. This understanding may be briefly summarized as follows.

R1. The first balancing is of the Malkuth [Hebrew term] or "Earth" vibratory center: the red-ray. Understanding and accepting this energy is fundamental.

R2. The next E complex which may be blocked is the emotional, or personal complex, also known as the orange-ray. This blockage will often demonstrate itself as personal eccentricities or distortions with regard to self-conscious understanding or acceptance of self.

R3. The third blockage resembles most closely what you have called "ego". It is the yellow-ray or solar plexus center. Blockages in this center will often manifest as distortions toward power manipulation and other social behaviors concerning those close and associated with oneself. Those with blockages in these first three E centers will have continuing difficulties in their further seeking of the Law of One [problems with spiritual growth].

R4. The heart-center or green-ray, is the center from which 3rd density souls may springboard to infinite intelligence [on the positive path]. Blockages in this area may manifest as difficulties in expressing universal love or compassion.

R5. The blue-ray center of E streaming is the center which, for the first time, is outgoing as well as inpouring. Those blocked in this area may have difficulty in grasping their own spiritual and mental dynamics, and further difficulty in expressing this kind of self-understanding. Entities blocked in this area may also have difficulties in accepting communication from others.

R6. The next center is the pineal or indigo-ray center. Those blocked in this center may experience a lessening of the influx of intelligent energy due to the self-judgment of unworthiness. Indigo-ray balancing is quite central to the work upon the spirit complex, essential for the transformation or transmutation of 3rd density souls [through Harvest] to 4th density. This is because indigo-ray is the E center which receives the least distorted outpourings of love / light from intelligent energy, and also has the potential for the key to the gateway of intelligent infinity [R6-R7 linkage].

R7. The remaining center of E influx is simply the total expression of one's vibrations of mind, body, and spirit. It is as it will be, "balanced" or "imbalanced" has no meaning at this E level, for it gives and takes in its own balance. Whatever distortions a soul may have, the violet-ray cannot be manipulated, like other centers. It has no particular importance in regards to self-balancing. {v. }

THE THREE FOUNDATION RAYS

RA: The basic pivotal points of each level of development; that is, each density [or chakra level] beyond second, are as follows:

(1) Firstly, the basic energy of red-ray. This ray may be understood to be the basic strengthening ray for each density. It shall never be condescended to as less important or productive of spiritual evolution, for it is the foundation ray.

(2) The next foundation ray is yellow-ray, which is the great steppingstone ray. At this ray the mind/body potentiates to its fullest balance. The strong red / orange / yellow triad springboards the entity into the green-ray center, which is the resource for spiritual work. Green-ray is a basic ray but not a primary [or foundation] ray.

(3) When green-ray has been activated, we find the third primary [foundation] ray being able to begin potentiation. This is the first true spiritual ray in that all energy transfers are of an integrated mind / body / spirit nature. The blue-ray seats the learnings/teachings of the spirit in each density within the mind/body animating the whole, communicating to others this entirety of being-ness.

The indigo-ray, though precious, is that ray worked upon only by the adept. It is the gateway to intelligent infinity bringing through intelligent energy. This is the E center worked upon in those teachings considered inner, hidden, and occult, for this ray is infinite in its possibilities. As you are aware, those who heal, teach, and work for the Creator in any way which may be seen to be both radiant and balanced are those activities which are indigo-ray.

As you are aware, the violet-ray is constant and does not figure into a discussion of the functions of ray activation in that it is the mark, register, identity, and the true vibration of an entity. {v. II}

ASSESSING YOUR CHAKRA BLOCKAGES

QUESTIONER: How can we assess which E centers are activated which are blocked?

RA: Your thoughts, feelings or emotions, and least of all, your behavior can be used as signposts for the teaching and learning of self by self. In the analysis of your experiences each day, you can assess what you consider to be inappropriate thoughts, behaviors, feelings, and emotions.

In examining these inappropriate activities of mind, body, and spirit, you may then place these distortions in the proper vibrational ray [related chakra] and thus see where work is needed. {v. II}

PERFECT CHAKRA BALANCE

QUESTIONER: How would each of the rays appear in a perfectly balanced and undistorted entity?

RA: We cannot tell you this, for each [soul's] balance is perfect and unique. But we can offer you an example, in this case, the example of a Wanderer. [The following is very common to ET souls]

In this entity, the first three rays may be viewed as extremely even: red, orange, yellow. The green ray is extremely bright. This may be balanced by a dimmer indigo. Between these two [green and indigo] the individual's point of balance resides, the blue ray of the communicator sparkling in strength above the ordinary. In the violet ray we see this unique spectrograph, and at the same time, the pure violet also surrounds the whole. This will be surrounded by that which mixes the red and violet ray, indicating the integration of mind, body, and spirit, and this will be surrounded by the vibratory pattern of this entity's true density [native higher-density vibratory level].

This description may be considered both unbalanced and in perfect balance. Understanding its "perfect balance" is extremely helpful in dealing with others. The ability to feel blockages [knowing how the entity is "unbalanced"] is useful only to the healer. When viewing an entity's "balance in colors" there should not be even a tiny fraction of judgment [blame]. Of course, when we see that an entity has many of its E centers weakened and blocked, we may understand that this soul has not yet "grasped the baton and begun the race" [not yet done spiritual self-work]. However, the potentials are always there. All the 7 rays fully balanced are there, waiting to be fully activated.

In the fully potentiated entity [totally developed and balanced], all 7 rays mount one upon the other with equal vibratory brilliance and scintillating sheen, until the surrounding color [of the whole] is white. This is what you may call "potentiated balance" [balanced chakra activation] in 3D. {v. II}

QUESTIONER: Then if a soul evolves in a straight line from 1st through to 8th density, would all the centers be activated to completion if everything worked as it should? Would each chakra be activated to completion and greatest intensity by the end of the experience in each density?

RA: Hypothetically speaking, this is correct. However, the fully activated being is rare. Therefore, more emphasis is laid upon the E harmony and balance of souls. It is necessary for graduation across densities for the primary energy centers [rays 1-3-5] to be functioning in such a way as to communicate with intelligent infinity [8D] and to appreciate and bask in this light in all its purity.

However, to fully activate each E center is the mastery of only a few souls, for each center has a variable speed of rotation or activity. Once all necessary centers are activated to the minimal necessary degree, it is more important to achieve harmony and balance between centers. {v. II}

BALANCE AND CHAKRA ACTIVATION

QUESTIONER: What do you mean by "variable speed of rotation or activity" of energy centers?

RA: Each E center has a wide range of rotational speed or brilliance of color. The more strongly the will of an entity concentrates upon, refines or purifies each E center, the more brilliant or rotationally active each center becomes. For self-aware souls, it is not necessary for the E centers to be activated in order [rays 1-7].

Therefore, some souls have extremely brilliant E centers, while at the same time, they are also quite unbalanced in their violet ray aspect [their overall spiritual achievement], due to the lack of attention they have paid to the totality of their life-experiences.

The key to balance is in making an unstudied, spontaneous, and honest response toward your experiences. In this way, you can use life-experience to the utmost, and then apply the balancing exercises [the healing or spiritual training of mind] to achieve the most purified and balanced spectrum of E center manifestation in violet ray.

This is why the brilliance or rotational speed of E centers is not considered to be more important than the balanced condition or violet ray manifestation of an entity in regarding harvestability [the ability to graduate to higher densities]. This is because souls who are unbalanced, especially in their primary rays, are not capable of sustaining the impact of the love/light of intelligent infinity to the extent necessary for harvest [due to inadequate m/b/s development & integration]. {v. II}

BALANCE AND EMOTIONAL REPRESSION

QUESTIONER: What is the difference in terms of chakra activation between a soul who represses emotional responses to emotionally charged situations, and a person who is balanced and truly unswayed by emotionally charged situations?

RA: Your question contains an incorrect assumption. To the truly balanced entity no situation would be emotionally charged [situations are not "emotionally charged", in and of themselves].

To repress emotions will depolarize an entity [reduce spiritual growth], since by doing so, they are choosing not to use the catalyst of the present moment in a spontaneous manner -- which will dim their E centers. There is, however, some polarization towards the positive [path of love], if the cause of the repression is a consideration for others [not wanting to hurt them].

A soul who has worked long enough with their own catalyst to be able to feel their emotions, but not have to express their reactions [through behavior], would not yet be truly balanced. However, they will not suffer spiritual depolarization [as they would if they had repressed themselves]. This is due to the transparency of their experience [clear awareness of their psychological process].

The gradual increase in one's ability to observe one's own reactions, and to know the self, will bring one ever closer to true balance. We suggest you have patience, for 3D catalyst is intense, and its [proper balanced] use must be appreciated over a period of consistent learning. {v. II}

QUESTIONER: How can a person know when he is repressing the flow of emotions, or if he is really in balance and truly unswayed by situations?

RA: Again, we repeat that to the balanced entity no situation has emotional charge but is simply a situation like any other, in which they may or may not observe an opportunity to be of service. The closer one comes to this attitude, the closer one is to true balance. We do not recommend that you repress or suppress your reactions to catalyst, unless such reactions would create an obstacle to others, not in harmony with the Law of One. It is far, far better to allow [yourself, and] each experience to express itself fully, in order to make fuller use of 3rd density catalyst. {v. II}

THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCE

RA: We have many times spoken about the relative importance of balancing as opposed to the relative unimportance of maximal activation of any particular E center. Therefore, if an entity seeks to be harvestable on the positive path [of service to others], it will be concerned with regularizing its various energies of experience [mind / body / spirit and chakra balancing].

In some cases, the most fragile entity may be more balanced than one with extreme energy and activity in service-to-others, due to the fastidiousness [the attentiveness and care] with which their will is being focused upon the [thorough] use of experience in knowing the self.

The densities beyond your own [beyond 3D] give the minimally balanced individual much time and space with which to continue to refine their inner [spiritual energy] balances. {v. II}

ANALYSIS OF BLOCKAGES

QUESTIONER: Are the conditions of the subtle bodies, the degree of the in-streaming energies, and any E blockages we might have, related to our own mental configuration?

RA: Basically, yes, but to use the term "mental configuration" is to oversimplify the conditions of E blockage which occur in 3D. The mind complex has a relationship to the spirit and body complexes which is not fixed. Thus, blockages may occur betwixt spirit and mind, or body and mind, upon many different levels. Remember, also, that each energy center has seven sub-colors, and so on. Therefore, spiritual/mental blockages combined with mental / bodily blockages may affect each of the E centers in several differing ways. Thus you may see the subtle nature of the balancing and evolutionary process. [Clearing blockages is also quite subtle] {v. III}

RESULTS OF CHAKRA CLEARANCE

QUESTIONER: Is the rotational speed of E centers a function of their degree of blockage, so that the less a center is blocked, the greater its speed of rotation and energy instreaming?

RA: You are partially correct. In the first three energy centers [R1-3], complete unblocking of the centers create greater speeds of rotation. However, as the entity develops the higher E centers [R4-6], these centers begin to express their nature by forming crystal structures. This is the higher or more balanced form of activation of E centers as the physical nature of this E is transmuted to a more subtle or spiritual nature of regularization and balance. {v. III}

QUESTIONER: What do you mean by crystal structures?

RA: For more highly developed souls, each of the E centers will have a distinctive crystalline structure. The configuration of each will be somewhat different, just as in your world no two snowflakes are alike. However, each is regular. {v. III}

GEOMETRY OF ENERGY CENTERS

RA: The red energy center often is in the shape of the spoked wheel.

The orange energy center in the flower shape containing three petals.

The yellow center again in a rounded shape, many faceted, as a star.

The green energy center is sometimes called the lotus-shape, and the number of points of crystalline structure depends upon the strength of this center.

The blue energy center is capable of having perhaps one hundred facets, and capable of great flashing brilliance.

The indigo center is a more quiet center, with the basic triangular or 3-petalled shape in many, although some adepts who have balanced the lower energies may create more faceted forms.

The violet energy center is the least variable and is sometimes described in your philosophy as "thousand-petalled", as it is the sum of the mind / body / spirit complex totality [the total Self]. {v. III}

POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE POLARIZATION AND THE CHAKRAS

QUESTIONER: What would be the difference in the red ray, other chakra activation, between highly polarized positive and negatively oriented entities?

RA: There is no difference in equally strongly polarized positive and negative entities in regards to the red ray. The negative ray pattern is the red / orange / yellow moving directly to the blue, this only being used in order to contact intelligent infinity. In positively oriented entities the configuration is even, crystallinely clear, and of the seven ray description. {v. II}
