The ancient Afrikan Yogis also used meditation for inter-galactic travel, as taught by NTRU turning into a vessel that can travel to, through, around and connect with the energy seats on the 9 planets. Geb Earth stability, Heru Jupiter expansion, Set-Mars manifestation of set values, Tehuti-Mercury communication and limitation, Nephtys-Neptune slow gradual change, Ausar-Pluto explosive dynamic irrefutable change, Sebek-Saturn constriction, Wadjet-Uranus sudden unpredictable change, Aset-Venus our values.
To do this they had to comprehend the principles of the NTRU that govern the 9 energy seats and align and alight them.
1. Anubu/Setekht at the base of the spine,
2. Sakhmet/Tchet within the genital area,
3. Tefnut/Tekhet at the navel area,
4. Heru/Ab at the solar plexus,
5. Hathor/Heper the heart,
6. Tehuti/Sehem in the throat area,
7. Shu/Shiru over the nasal area,
8. Aset/Ausar/Mer in between the eyebrows,
9. Atum/Ikh from the soft spot on the top of the head radiating outward and upward, the spiritual umbilical cord.
The principle of the NTRU is to bring about the highest ideals in Man, to maintain balance of the human emotions.
Setekht Arush/Chakra situated at the base of the spine by the perineum in between the anus and scrotum/vagina.
When we are cut off from our root we exhibit fear, possessiveness, inability to let go and trust. We become poverty conscious and focus on what we don’t have, allowing our financial issues to affect our relationships with others. We develop feelings of isolation and disconnect from our bodies and our environment. There is a need to escape. The Setekht will have to be activated to bring balance.
The base Arush/Chakra as it is sometimes called, manifests security, feelings of abundance and a connection to the earth this is why it also known as the root, while sitting in lotus position or adept (classic) pose the aim is to be as comfortable as you can while sitting straight with the back erect and the head aligned with the floor or tilted slightly back. This can take time to attain and will require patient work to master. Importantly use intent and purpose in the practice, your aim is to relax the body yet maintain an awareness of the bodily sensations. This brings the mind into a heightened state of alertness and attention. Once you are settled focus on your breathing and begin to send roots down into the earth below you, this acts as an anchor for the root Arush/chakra and grounds you. Begin to squeeze the anal sphincter notice the area where there is a pull in between the anus and the lower genitals focus the mind and feel the energy (a burning heat) like a small sun; you have now activated the root chakra.
Focus and continue working with the breath feel your connection with the earth and see how abundantly blessed you are, become aware of your physical body and the warmth rising in the spine.
May Anpu make my thighs firm that I may stand upon them’.
