Quantum Physics, Chakras, and Crystals

Sep 09, 2019

In previous blogs, we’ve discussed that our true nature is energy. When we talk about energy in the holistic world and refer to healing, it’s impossible not to talk about chakras.

Most of us were introduced to our chakras through yoga practices, the new age movement, or alternative approaches like spirituality and holistic medicine. The chakra system, introduced to the West by the Hindus, gave us the first approach to our understanding of the energetic body.

For many centuries, the human bioenergetic system has been conceived of as seven major energy centers, vertically aligned and running from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Sadly, the information has been compromised through translations, cultural and spiritual biases, and faulty understanding.


As Sanskrit scholar Christopher Wallis explains, understanding of “the subtle body and its energy centers” originates from tantric yoga (flourishing from 600–1300 CE and still practiced today). Not just one but many chakra systems were part of the original tradition. After 900 CE, each of the many tantric branches used a different system (or systems)—ranging from 5 chakras to 21 plus. Today’s Westernized system includes 7 (technically, 6 plus 1). Though dominant for nearly five centuries and known by most yogis (both Indian and Western), this system didn’t come from ancient scripture as many believe. Rather, it’s from a confusing treatise written in 1577 by Pūrṇānanda Yati—Ṣaṭ-chakra-nirūpaṇa (Explanation of the Six Chakras)—and its misleading 1918 English translation by British Orientalist John Woodroffe.[1]


But how does the chakra system fit into quantum physics theory and work in our energy field?


Neither by dissecting the body nor by examining our skin under a microscope can we perceive chakras. We can feel them, but we can’t see or touch them. But this doesn’t prove their nonexistence.


The chakras are beyond the frequency our human eye can perceive and in the realm of electromagnetic energy.


We’ve all heard spiritual people say that “everything is interconnected” and “part of the universal flow.” Today we know that torus energy fields are energy patterns of different sizes found in many things from atoms, cells, seeds, trees, and animals to planets, suns, and galaxies—and also human beings. For example, an apple has a torus shape. The important thing to understand about the torus is that it represents a process, not a particular form. “A torus consists of a central axis with a vortex at both ends and a surrounding coherent field. Energy flows in one vortex, through the central axis, out the other vortex, and then wraps around itself to return to the first incoming vortex.”[2]


As I mention in The Crystal Blueprint, “Our individual electromagnetic fields work like a torus. The energy enters our heads, circulates within our bodies and hearts at the center, then leaves the base of the perineum and loops around our body to enter our heads again.”


There are old texts where there is evidence that the concept of torus was not new for ancient Hindus. According to Shyam Sundar Goswami, the Sushumna nadi is the central channel where energy circulates. Ida and Pingala nadis (channels) extend beyond and around the vertebral column and around our physical body, directing energy from the mind to the body and vice versa.


In 1958, Sri Aurobindo shared in On Yoga II that the “Pranayama Kosha” —pranic body or energy field—extends to both body and mind energy fields.[3] And rather than channels, they were vibrating energy flowing between energy fields.


Breathing exercises were among the tools used to circulate prana or life energy through these nadis or channels and stimulate the flow of energy. Are you visualizing the torus with the central channel and surrounding energy as I am?


For Goswami, the chakra system is actually a system of subtle power operations, similar to an electric panel, around some centralized force. In Sanskrit, chakra means wheel, disc, or any arrangement in circular form.[4] Interestingly, chakra also means movement.


Within our bodies, each chakra is a torus. The chakras are the connectors between matter and the energy field that allow the wireless energy from the energy field to be propagated physically through the wires or nerves. This manifests as electrical impulses functioning on our physicochemical system. In ancient text, the wireless energy field is referred to as prana “wayu,” which operates without nerves and is in constant motion.[5]


For the ancients, reconnection was a process of ascending through the different chakras. This was similar to a healing journey, which began in Muladhara or the root chakra. Each chakra represented something to release or unlearn and reconnect within us. The final goal in this journey is to ascend to Sahasrara, the crown chakra on the top of the head, and become whole.


Goswami says, “The inner nature of the mind is to tend towards bindu”—a state in which power is at maximum concentration, which manifests itself when mental consciousness is transmuted into a concentric form. Was he referring to the need to transmute the contents within the field of the mind in order to become one with the energy torus? I wondered.


Indeed: “The bindu occurs both in mental and material fields. The atom is the bindu of matter and Samadhi the bindu of the mind.” Samadhi is a state of consciousness where our individual awareness dissolves into the great whole and we become one—this can only be achieved when we become free from our mind contents and one with energy.

Our energy torus field is what really creates our reality. The structure of the torus allows feedback between what is coming from the outside into our internal environment and what is going back to the outside. In other words, the vacuum of space informs us, and we inform the vacuum. This continuous feedback is what also explains how thoughts, beliefs, and internal experiences create our reality—and how information absorbed from our surroundings creates our inner contents.[6]


Goswami says that, when energy descends or lowers its frequency, it’s transformed into matter.[7] Today, we also know that the observer effect is involved.


Because many people in the holistic community work with chakras, it’s important to acknowledge that the information you’re working with is not entirely accurate. If chakras are energy, how we can prescribe? This is one of the reasons I prefer working with crystal resonance instead of prescribing stones for each chakra. Through crystal resonance, you are working directly with your torus energy field.


Quartz crystals’ energy helps transform everything that does not flow within the torus energy field—to balance, increase the flow, and amplify the field.


Where should you place the crystals and make the crystal grids? Ask yourself questions and allow yourself to resonate with the crystal you need to work with. Then feel, without mind, where to place the crystal in your torus; imagine the flow of energy is restored, supporting this practice with your breathing.


Ancient wisdom and science agree that our essence is transparent and in continuous flow; we need to resonate with our transparency to stay healthy. Let’s all restore the flow in our torus energy field! What are you waiting for to transparentize and work on yourself with crystals? If you want to learn more ways to work with torus energy, chakras, and crystals, I invite you to read The Crystal Blueprint.
