The 8th Chakra and the Universal Heart First published in Kindred Spirit magazine Mar/Apr 2007 If you find yourself almost overwhelmed by the emotion of a sunset or by the sight of suffering and you feel as though you are breaking open with joy or compassion, the chances are that your 8th chakra is opening. Over five millennia ago, the Vedic spiritual tradition of ancient India recognised that the consciousness of our ego-based selves is mediated through energetic vortices, or chakras. But we have known at a deep level that our personality energy field of seven chakras is incomplete. Error Feedback: Skill Acquisition Theory As noted in the previous post on theory in error feedback, the research on expertise and ACT-R Theory suggest that learning a language is similar to learning other activities like chess, music, and math. In this post, we'll look at Skill Acquisition Theory (SAT), which is based upon the work in ACT-R. Robert DeKeyser (2007) has a good overview of Skill Acquisition Theory. (See Theories in Second Language Acquistion.) As he notes, development has three stages: declarative, procedural, and automatic (from ACT-R Theory).
Scientists Quantify & Graphically Chart Alignment Of Human Chakras In Various Emotional States Electrophotonic analysis in medicine is something that’s been gaining more attention from scientists and researchers from all over the world. It’s another case -of many -that demonstrates how humanity is continually moving toward a scientific understanding of what is considered Ancient Eastern Mysticism. In the mid-nineties, Konstantin Korotkov, Professor of Computer Science and Biophysics at Saint-Petersburg Federal University of Informational Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, developed a scientific device based on the ancient Chinese system of energy meridians.

The word yoga means yoke or union, and one can see how the chakra system represents the structural aspect of that yoke — the means through which mind and body, mortal and divine, connect.

7 Sacred Herbs for Activating and Harmonizing the Chakras By Justin Faerman Guest Writer for Wake Up World While the chakras themselves are energetic/etheric in nature, they each have corresponding physical organs, glands and systems in the body that can, and do, have an effect on their functioning. When the associated organ/gland/system is weak or out of balance, the relevant chakra will be under active; and when the associated organ/system is balanced and healthy, the chakra will generally be in harmony.

As with all things in our reality, they are linked to sound, light and color. Sound and the Chakras” - healingsounds.com Sound and the ChakrasBy Jonathan Goldman In 1980 I first began my study of the uses of sound and music as therapeutic and healing modalities.
