Verticality is like coming home.
Remember the feeling you have during and just after meditation, that state when you feel empowered, composed, insightful, inspired, at peace with yourself, your world, the world?
It is then your chakras are vertical, perfectly placed down your central channel, aligned and attuned to the Eternal Life Force Energy. Trees, plants, animals, new born babies all have a vertical energy system.
Our chakras aren’t supposed to be horizontal, projecting out of our bodies like shields or acting like vacuums and sucking in energy.
To understand this further we need to know that as energy descends from the Source it is stepped down at different stages, densifying as it comes closer to manifesting in the material realms. This process also applies to the energy we receive and needs to be processed by each chakra which acts like an interface to process this energy still further until it reaches our base chakra.
This cannot happen if our chakras are horizontal and are pulling energy directly into them.
Our energy systems were designed so that energy flows through us in a continuous flow, not broken up, some being drawn in through one chakra, some another, While our systems remain horizontal, drawing in energy from all different angles we remain fragmented with too much emphasis on particular chakras which is why some people are too much in their heads or their hearts or become obsessed with root chakra issues.
Verticality not only describes the positioning of the chakras but also comes from the word vertex, meaning the highest point, which is also what we are striving to achieve, the highest and best we can be.
Many spiritual adepts, seekers of truth, attain this verticalisation but avoid contact with the outside world in order not to be thrown off balance, but for us, living in the real world, this is not possible and we need a way to maintain this alignment while continuing to live our lives.
In my work I have always striven to assist people to reach their highest potential, be that in health or whatever they are searching for, while remaining fully in life and often in quite difficult surroundings and circumstances.
The temptation is to think that withdrawing from the pollution and influences of our fast and disposable world, the chaos, will enable us to be who we want to be a whole lot easier.
This may or may not be true though the people I deal with on a daily basis have lives, jobs and families that can enhance and enrich their journey, making it even more satisfying, creating even bigger opportunities to learn about and, explore themselves in greater depth.
