SPIRITUAL HEALING IN THE WAY OF ATLAN
(based on a talk I gave in Toronto~1991)
An ancient method of healing rediscovered for the 21st century.
Atlan Spiritual Healing is an energy system that, by the placing of hands on parts of the body that correspond to the chakras and acupuncture meridians, heals the physical, emotional and spiritual parts of our being.
Before Atlantis, there was a way of life called The Way of Atlan. It explained the connection between our individual and divine selves, and how to address our physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Much of the Way of Atlan has been lost, but fragments of it exist in the world’s religions and philosophies.
There was a healing method within the Way called Spiritual Healing in the Way of Atlan, which had also been lost, though parts of it exist within the Indian and Chinese forms of yoga, kundalini, meditation, and chi.
Growing up in India, Pakistan, England and Japan I had a series of awareness’s that led me to discover healing gifts and be aware of spiritual dimensions. Arriving in Toronto in 1970 I started classes in meditation that included a rough form of hands on energy healing. That led to remembering my past lives, writing 2 books, “Man From Atlan” and “ The Way of Atlan” and traveling the world. I returned to Toronto to continue teaching but maybe, I will travel again.
We all have the gift of healing within ourselves. How I discovered The Way of Atlan was just an extension of this thought: I have done this before. And, I have come from another place.
There is a great need for healing all over the planet, so I wish to share this knowledge with everyone. Eventually, there will be 3 books of Spiritual Healing in the Way of Atlan. This article is based on the first book.
This is a healing system, but it’s not really a system. It’s not even a technique. It’s a way of living, a movement of energy within and outside you, and, it is a space. If I were to say that it’s a series of exercises and initiations, then that would be misleading, because it’s not that either. It’s a form that is the oldest form of healing, because it’s the one that is inherent within us. It’s the nature of the being to be able to heal itself, and something that we all need to get in touch with, how we heal ourselves. Here are the basics:
The 12 chakra system
Chakras are energy centers, receptors, transmitters, and portals into other dimensions. They act as storehouses of energy and also, memories and information. They can be clear or with colour, and we can change their essential frequency. They operate on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
Located on the body, they extend into the aura and beyond. They can shift, split or mutate depending on input and expression. They are also a map and blueprint for evolution. Every being on this planet has chakras, as does the planet itself (what we call sacred places), even the Universe has them.
At first I was only aware of the classic 7 chakras, but wondered, why were we ignoring the feet? It is our connection with the feminine energy of the earth. Why was there no information on the chakras beyond the crown, or the split in the sacral and the heart chakras? This meditation caused me to recognize the patterns of suppression: of the feminine, karma and purpose, sexuality and spirituality, our childhood experiences and what happens to us after we die that lead to the mutations within the chakras, and how to reverse those imbalances.
Briefly, there are 12 chakras, the balancing of which can lead to a spiritual alchemy of balance within our selves.
- Black, on the soles of our feet, is karma, the female energy, physical energy and the material.
- Red, between our legs, is birth, the urge to procreate, elimination and the immune system.
- Orange, on the genitals and navel, is our sexuality, confidence, childhood experience and digestion.
- Yellow, on the solar plexus, is our soul, ego and identity, the lungs.
- Green, over the left breast, is the balancing energy, relationships, the creative force, healing and the heart.
- Pink, over the thymus gland (just below the neck) is dharma and our purpose in life. A student suggested it be called the Higher Heart chakra.
- Sky Blue, over the thyroid gland, is the mind, communication, fear and control.
- Indigo, usually on the forehead (but sometimes slightly below) associates with the pineal gland, intuition, and brain functions.
- Violet, on the crown of the head, is the doorway into the spirit realms, dreams, visions and third sight. The point from which the spirit leaves the body, in meditation or death.
- Green/gold/green/gold/green, one palm length above the crown, is a 5-layered chakra that governs much of what we call the paranormal, and magic. The manifestation of our projected emotional energy, a universal storehouse of knowledge called the Akashic Records, which we can access through various means.
- Cobalt blue, another palm length above, is the chakra of psychic protection. A requirement for healers!
- White, another palm length above, is the male energy. There are also major receptors and transmitting points in the hands, feet, shoulders and crown, the energising colour of which is clear (like water) and there are minor chakras, mostly in the joints of the body. And there is, lastly, the Void, the space between and beyond the chakras.
The chakras in the material realm
An unbroken flow of energy is what keeps us healthy, and blocks and stress may speed up the process of illness. Prana, chi, and kundalini are just some of the names people use for these energies, but their definitions are unfortunately, incomplete. I use the three energies, physical, psychic, and spiritual, and find that this healing helps on all three levels, and that changes within the being can be reflected in changes in the external environment. Properly used, healing can actually slow down the ageing process.
Each chakra is fed by certain foods: The Spirit chakras from white down to violet are fed by vegetables; Psychic chakras indigo, fruits and sugar; sky blue, grains; pink, oils, nuts and seeds; green, fish; yellow, dairy and eggs; Physical chakras orange, poultry and organ meats; red, red meat; and black, pork and placenta. Avoid certain foods, and you starve that chakra. You want to have more servings of foods for the upper chakras, and less for the lower chakras, depending on many factors.
The first 3 chakras, black to orange, govern the physical energy fields. The next 5, yellow to indigo, the psychic/emotional energy fields. The last 4, violet to white, regulate the spirit energy fields. These correspond with, respectively, the nervous system, the hormonal system, and the invisible energy fields that govern our well-being.
Energy Healing is the future of medicine, as it is truly Holistic, whereas most other forms work only on the physical, emotional, or spiritual.
The chakras in health
The significance of karma in our well-being cannot be underestimated. Karma is the sum total of all our material actions and memories, but also the lessons we must learn, and therefore not always connected with past lives. Our disconnection with the Earth leads to imbalances within our material selves, for where else does our wealth and physical health come from but the Earth? We are born with karma, and our sexuality and self-love also determine our health.
The chakras in the psychic realm
The psychic is based on the Greek word psyche, or the soul. It is the sum total of all our emotional memories, and how we affect others, or are affected by others. We define ourselves by the feedback we get from others, the way in which we compensate for whatever we lack, and seek completion. We need to heal the past, and forgive others, and ourselves. We need to find our purpose. Most people are stuck in the need for emotional gratification, but properly trained, can go into the areas of the hidden intuitive senses, and, magic.
The chakras and the spirit realms
We have been so stuck in linear thinking within the bounds of our senses that we could not go beyond into the hidden and unknown. There is much knowledge contained within our physical and emotional bodies we are only now beginning to access. I would like to take you into the dimensions within our spiritual body, and beyond.
Our definitions of spirituality are so varied; I would like to define spirit as the space we can reach once we let go of our ego (without the usual tortures we inflict upon ourselves to attain that goal). And spirituality is just, a space of balance and peace, however we get there.
The chakras in divinity
The imbalance between male and female energy, or the opposing points of yin and yang, are reflected in our concepts of God as a male energy. The irreconcilable struggle between these two opposites has always existed, outside and within us. The Black chakra, as representative of the feminine energies, has been suppressed. By directing our energies towards the White chakra, the male energy has also been put into a position of imbalance, which leads to distortions in healing and spirituality.
There is a third element to this, which is the energy of the child. The Sky God made love to Mother Earth and this produced the race of humanity. We are not only all the children of God; we are the balancing force that leads to the reconciling of male and female energies, through our actions. The child energy is based in the heart chakra, and its ultimate force is Love, Compassion and Healing.
See how children are, in their fearlessness and how they look not to the past, but the future. So, the divine energy exists within the male, female, and child.
The chakras in time and space
Our awareness of existence is where time and space intersect, measurable only by our senses. So, if it is now 1:58 p.m. where you are, that is where you exist. The past is gone, the future unknown. There are parallel dimensions in time and space but we are unaware of them except sometimes when we meditate, have psychic visions or die.
It is important to learn how to access the geography of dimensions. Only then can we travel between time and space.
Time and space are not linear, but fluid and dynamic; the Universe is not orderly and logical, but full of chaos, from which comes creation.
The space between the chakras
Focusing only on the chakras, meridians and energy pathways is a form of linear thinking. What about the space between spaces, and the energy beyond? What happens here in the deepest healing and meditation? I call that space the Void, which the Buddha described as the nothingness one attains upon letting go the ego. Healing then come into being, and a space of balance reached.
We learn to forgive, and heal the past, and go into the further dimensions, and whatever we learn, share with others.
