Weave Your Chakras & Subselves
Tantra, most think, is about sex. But sex contributes only
one seventh of tantra.
Tantra means weaving, weaving in the sense of coordinating
and orchestrating. When you weave your attributes or inner voices
through the seven categories of human concern called CHAKRAS, your
sexual chakra affects all the voices you manage. In All-Chakra
Tantra, you also weave inner voices' concerns in security, power,
love, communication, vision and spirituality chakras.
You, as the weaver, CENTER yourself to weave. You know which
inner voices–also called subselves–your current issues activate. As
Center, you weave and integrate the dance of your selves at each of
your chakras, the dance within you as an integrated person and your
dance with the subselves of your lovers. First learn for yourself
then teach others how to experience what you've experienced.
Inner voices--subselves sometimes have names like Inner
Child, Machiavelli, Critic, Perfectionist, Aphrodite, Gengis, and the
like (Capitalized to show they're inner voice). Subselves, such as
Critic or Romantic influence multiple chakras.
Each of your chakras is a forum where concerned subselves
discourse on how to react to situations in your life. Your first
chakra--your security and belongingness forum–gives inner voices an
agora to express their opinions of, say, how taking a certain lover
will affect your Inner Child. Tantra pairs chakra concerns–security,
sex, power, love, communication, vision and spirituality– with your
perineum, genitals, diaphragm, heart, throat, brow, and crown.
Focus in turn on each chakra. Center yourself successively among the
voices at each chakra. At a given chakra, you hear inputs from voices
relevant to that chakra, voices with radically different
perspectives. You job: coordinate these voices so they all get their
needs met. You recognize, accept and coordinate the voices at each
You also give the chakra itself a voice. Hear the voice of each
chakra; let each give you its overall perspective in each of the
challenges life presents you. Hear what each says about your
lovelife. Simultaneously hold the energies of each your chakras and
subselves. Consult your neutral Witness. Discriminate alternatives
and choose your reactions to other people and life's challenges.
And you also center yourself in lover-relationships .
In All-Chakra Tantra, you create two-person or multi–person (if
you're polyamorous) beings. In multiperson beings--interperson al
entities--dyad, triad, moresome, network--you and your lovers weave
your needs together. You and they synergistically join the ocean of
consciousness and merge with all humanity and the cosmos.
You learn too how to teach other people to weave chakras within
themselves and with their lovers too.
Chakra 1 Safe at First Base
Your first (or base) chakra relates to your perineum, your needs to
belong, feel safe, secure and healthy, grounded in your material and
emotional existence. You learn, for yourself and those you coach, to
cherish vulnerable, sensitive, emotional, playful and magical aspects
of your own psyche and for the Inner Children of your lovers. Within
you, you learn to simultaneously feel and hold tension between your
Inner Child and protective subselves–particular ly your Inner
Patriarch and Inner Critic. To free the voice of your Inner Child and
hear its perspectives, reprogram yourself and your clients so you and
they distinguish fathers and mothers from lovers. When you hear your
Child, you avoid limiting patterns parents, church, media and society
imprinted on you.
In all-chakra relationships, you honor lovers' first-chakra needs;
you help them feel emotionally and financially secure. You let your
Inner Child connect with the Inner Children of your sweethearts. You
meet the primal, base chakra need for loving tactile contact–you
regularly massage and touch each other all over. You encourage your
lovers' health (as well as yours) when you eat, exercise and stretch
Chakra 2 Sexually Both Cautious and Free Center in Thee
The second chakra relates to your sex organs, sexual and sensual
needs. Release your emotions and reprogram self- put-down attitudes
that inhibit satisfying interactions with lovers. Analyze the bonding
patterns you and they co-create. Simultaneously hold energies of your
sexually free and sexually cautious voices. Decide how much each
voice should contribute in each given situation in your life.
Women, expand your capacity for second chakra pleasure. Give and
receive beautiful rituals of vaginal honoring. For yourself and other
women, learn to ejaculate copious, alkaline fluid (amrita in
Men, master your second chakras with internal holds (bandhas)
so you can pull up energy instead of ejaculating. You practice
lasting longer in lovemaking. Experience new kinds of orgasms.
Chakra 3: Take What's Rightfully Yours
For your third chakra, related to your belly, All-Chakra
Tantra teaches you to take what's yours, assert yourself
appropriately. You and your lovers empower each other. You explore
power chakra dynamics with your lovers--how you bond (sometimes
sweetly, sometimes sourly) into parental-child roles. Chakra 3
meditations help you return to sweet and centered interaction. You
can lead or follow your darlings as you choose, rather than
unconsciously following or initiating.
Chakra 4: Live Loving Oneness, Personal and Impersonal
The meditations of the forth chakra associate with your
heart. You cultivate the ability to express either personal or
impersonal love and to shield your heart when you choose. You love,
cherish, support, heal and encourage yourself and your lovers. You
communicate feelings, cultivate sweetness, romance each other. You
develop dyadic consciousness, where you identify at the same time
with your beloved's consciousness and your own as parts of a greater
awareness, a two-person awareness greater than the sum of your
Chakra 5: Speak or Hold Silence
Fifth chakra: throat, expression. Hear each of your inner
voices tell you what they want and need. They say how they aid you,
your beloved and humanity. Choose what, when and how to express (or
not express) your inner voices to other people. Speak helpful, loving
truth keep quiet. Sing. Honor your beloveds' many voices too. Speak
authentically, kindly and effectively to each other. In one throat-
chakra exercise, you sanctify sex--speak romantically of sacred
sexual organs and acts.
Chakra 6: Think, Dream, Intuit, Channel, Envision
The sixth chakra's the brain chakra; it's the forum for
vision, intuition and intellect. In this forum of intellectual,
pictorial and intuitive vision which comprise Chakra 6, you receive,
share and expand visions for yourselves, each other, others you love,
your community and world. As beloveds, you intuit each others
thoughts and feelings, as well as those of your children, parents,
friends and others. Access the messages of dream, past life, fantasy,
archetype and hero-tale.
Chakra 7 Crown Thy Good With Siblinghood
For the seventh charka, your crown, the tantric meditations
invoke awareness of your unity with everyone and everything. Tantra
helps you rise to broader perspectives of your crown chakra, yet stay
aware of the wisdom of chakras 1-6.
There's an Eighth Chakra, too–the Clown Chakra above even
your crown. The wisdom of this chakra: don't take the chakra category
system so seriously; it's all funny and humorous. Let yourself laugh
at the proclivity to categorization that tantra uses to map the
continuous, simultaneous continua of ever-shifting dimensions in a
system ruled by divine play (lila).
Realize that though the crown's higher in the
standing human than the genitals or base, the crown is not higher in
the sense of better. Perineum, genitals, diaphragm––that is,
security, sex and power though lower in the body, are all crucial to
you as an ecological system. In tantra, you coordinate all your
chakras through your center. You transcend (rise above) any chakra or
subself when you witness your ecology, center yourself, end exclusive
identification or overidentification with a chakra or subself, you
simultaneously embrace inputs from other chakras and opposite
subselves and encompass more than Thinker, Pleaser or other voices.
Expand your awareness to more than your body. Expand your
perspective to even more than awareness of you and your darlings,
more than the awareness you share with each other and with humans,
with life itself, or even with the Earth. Feel your oneness with
everyone and everything everywhere at all-times. Experience unity,
the seamless web of consciousness linking the manifest and inchoate
universes. Merge with the latent--unformed but constantly arising–
reality of the metacosmic void. Identify with divine play that can
manifest all forms.
In tantra, you recognize, cherish, coordinate and integrate
the chakras and inner voices. You consciously apply what the chakras
focalize--security, sex, power, love, talk, understanding and unity--
to enlighten yourself, your lovers and the world. Tantra activates
all your chakras and inner voices. The chakras are energy centers
associated with your perineum, genitals, belly, heart, throat,
forehead and crown. You pour energy from your chakras into a coherent
river of light that spouts up your spine and meets your beloved's
light. You connect in the stream of consciousness that sweeps you
both to the ocean of life. Center yourself and orchestrate your
chakras--inner power plants that generate security, sexuality, power,
love, communication, vision, and feelings of oneness with everything
