In the center of the chest there lies the beating heart which extends to the left under the breast called the heart chakra (even though this has nothing to do with chakras), this in the astral realm is known as the opening of the way. Again I will not go too far with the explanation but what I can say is that people who are being spiritually awakened or people who are on a spiritual path are normally spiritually attuned to this power point. It is a force center of energy and every and all of your spiritual experiences lies within here.
Another is the space between your eyebrows known as the pineal gland or the third eye. It is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. This is a vital point of the human body that allows our soul consciousness to come through. What this means is you see beyond the physical.
Another is of the stomach area and is called the solar plexus. This is important because it is the center of the body and is a universe of its own. Emotions are stored here and a lot of what is to come in the future are drawn to this place on your body and stored for future utterance.
There are many more places to explore, but I will leave it at this for now. Let me tell you a cautionary tale, something that happened to me when I was spiritually young but nevertheless spiritually strong….
I used to attend a spiritual church. It was run by a Jamaican woman who called herself ‘mother’ (This is the witch who walked over my niece in the post titled “Gifted Child”), and we found it to be fun as there was singing and dancing, and stamping of feet, and drums and fruits and candles, and flowers. She was of the spiritual baptist faith. After a while of going there, the woman turned against me, believing that I could spiritually “see” her dirty deeds, so I stopped attending the church, (my eyes had began to open after what she did to my niece).
Unfortunately, I was involved in su-su (pardner), this is where a group of persons contribute money which is kept by a banker and a drawing of hand is given out weekly to a contributor until all involved got their ‘draw.’ This was our only link together but I had received my draw a couple weeks before I stopped attending her church. However, I still had to make my contributions until the su-su was finished. By this time, the woman was complaining to other people that my eyes were too quick, that I saw things that she did not need me to see and that my presence in her church was disruptive to her as it kept out a lot of the energies that she invited in.
She called me one day and told me to come to her house to retrieve something that I had left in her church. I went to the house to get my belongings and as soon as she opened her door she stretched forth her right hand and hit me 3 times in my chest, BAM! BAM! BAM! (remember what I explained about the chest). Then she slammed her door without giving me anything. I stood there shocked for a minute that she would do this until I heard a presence of thought tell me not to worry and tell me what to do, which I did. The spirit within me continued to explain what she did, which was because she thought that my spiritual eyes was in the center of my chest, by hitting me she felt she could spiritually blind me.
Another day she called again to drop the su-su contribution off at her business place. Being spiritually young at that time, I was worried as I knew what she had just done to me and felt this was another one of her tricks. While I sat in my living room not knowing what to do, the spirit within me spoke and told me what to do before taking the money to her, this was so she could not use the money coming from my hand to spiritually harm me (which is very possible), so I did what I was told and went off to see this woman (if you read my post ‘Attachment’ this is the same woman that I spoke about in that article). As I got to her business place, the woman met me at the door, she held out her right hand and said ‘I don’t want that money, keep it and I don’t ever want another cent from you toward the su-su again’ so I went home. It was evident in the fact that she did not take the money from me that she realized that I was onto her and possibly fearful that I had prepared myself against the witchery that awaited me coming from her. Now when I think about it I am so happy for my spirit guides who had protected me on many different occasions from this woman and her wickedness, especially with her trying to blind me spiritually by hitting me in the center of my chest.
Be careful of people who wants to place their hands on you who you may be suspicious of. There are people out there in the world who will use spiritual trickery to harm you in any way they please. Don’t allow anyone to try and lean their elbow on your shoulder thus placing their burden upon you. Don’t allow anybody to purposely mash your feet (Jamaicans have a habit on stepping on your new shoe saying they’re ‘christening’ it). If you are sitting on the floor, don’t allow anyone to step over you as this will place that person, at all times in life, ahead of you or overshadow your spirit therefore holding you back in life. We will explore in future posts those spiritual entrance and exit points and also power points as we travel together in Embracing our Spirituality.
