The menorah is a sacred key that unlocks the mystery of our human spiritual design.
The first mention of the menorah is found in the book of Exodus in the Bible. The story tells of Moses receiving specific instruction from God for building a lampstand out of solid gold.
You shall also make a lampstand of pure gold; the lampstand shall be of hammered work...Its shafts, its branches, its bowls, its ornamental knobs, and flowers shall be of one piece. And six branches shall come out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side. Three bowls shall be made like almond blossoms on one branch, with an ornamental knob and a flower, and three bowls made like almond blossoms on the other branch, with an ornamental knob and a flower -- and so for the six branches that come out of the lampstand.
The most significant feature of the menorah is its tree-like shape and arrangement of the branches on its trunk. However, the relevance of the pattern within the branches and trunk is not revealed until you turn the menorah sideways and place it next to the chakra system.
Once in a sideways position, the pattern within the branches appears as a common wire diagram, illustrating the interconnections between the heart chakra and the upper and lower chakras. Keep in mind, the study of the chakras is a study of energy that we can feel in our body as love, hate, anger, joy etc.
The Divine Pattern is revealed in the branches.
Seven candle menorah vs. nine candle menorah? The earliest version menorah we can find shows seven candles (three branches, one center mast) for seven energetic centers. In essence this is correct, however, the heart chakra system is made up of three chakras. The upper and lower chakras are Yin energies designed to receive energies from the upper and lower chakras, and the center heart chakra is the expressive center for the whole system. It is my belief the fourth branch was added to accurately account for the heart chakra system. We are made of a trinity of trinities.
Branches of the menorah reveal our Divine architecture, providing us with a blueprint of the energetic design of the human spiritual being. Our Creators inner programming illustrates how we are designed to find balance and harmony while living in the physical world as spiritual beings. We are wonderfully made with a loving disposition, even without knowing why. Take hope in the fact that we are engineered to love one another.
The slides below illustrate the symbiotic nature of each pair of chakras. The upper chakras govern the lower chakras, and the lower chakras energize the upper chakras. We are governed by consciousness and empowered by understanding our inner design. The graphics below illustrate energetic connections between the heart chakra and the upper and lower chakras.
Chakra Blocks and Resolves
What is a BLOCK?
A Block is a distrubing frequency or vibration within the chakra system, that can occur when we experience pain, suffering or for some reason produce an energy or action out of harmony with our higher conscience.
What is a RESOLVE?
Resolve is an action you can take to bring your emotions/energy back into alignment with your integral self. The Resolve can involve the use of a technique to handle the energy, apolozing, forgiveness, righting a wrong, open communication, truth telling, unconditional love, mercy, seeing the big picture, or recognizing that God is our greatest source of survival.
In essence, chakras are energetic control points that regulate the flow of prana–life force energy within our body. As we make decisions in life or experience some form of trauma due to a myriad of reasons, our energy can become blocked or disturbed, reducing the flow of current to the heart chakra and related organs within the body. Disfunctional energy also leads to disfunctional operations within organs in the body.
Chakra Blocks and Resolves
The graphics below will provide you with an introduction to the energetic blocks and resolves for each chakra. Branches of the menorah diagram our Creators energetic design for the human spiritual being. We are designed to find energetic balance in a world of danger, sexual seduction, competition for power, desire for love, to express love, to feel bliss, to connect with others, to find a solution to the many issues we face and to connect with the Divine.
The Divine Pattern within the menorah provides us with practical information we can use daily in our life.
