The Jewels Of Atargatis

The most commonly known system for dealing with the energy centres of the body is the Eastern Charka system. However there is also another, rooted in Hermeticism. I use both a Qabalistic system in dealing with the energy centres of the body and an Eastern Charka system. The Kabbalistic way is also amazing interesting and utilised for its own reasons. Although it has many ideas and concepts that are within the Charka system there are also some fundamental differences. In this article I will be explaining the Occult Charkas, or Psychic Jewels and there similarities to the Charkas and introducing the system as a whole. 
The Hermetic Caduceus is the starting point, by observing it, when placed over the body, it clearly shows the snake like forms of the primary Nadis and the Pingala of the Ida that twine around the Sushumna. Continuing by placing the tree of life over the physical body we have in small and simplified way, the completed system of the Occult Jewels. This is not a new concept, the 17th century Hermetic Philosopher Johann Gitchel produced a fascinating drawing showing the traditional planets in line with the Chakra Positions; incidentally it is suggested that Yoga itself was first created in the schools of Pythagoras and was then imported into the East by Alexander the Great, several hundred years before Patanjali complied the Yoga Sutras. So one could say that the Charka system originally originated in the West. When the full charka system is explained, there are 88000 charkas in the body, and within the Qabalistic system there is a difference, when all the charkas are fully explained there are 880 in Qabalistic thought. However there are major energy centres that we focus on, in The Charka system there are 7 major energy centres, whereas in the Occult Jewels there are 10.

The Jewels are the centres for the energetic currents that course through the universe and draw in the universal spiritual energy. They both draw in that energy and push out that energy, creating a perfect balance of energies within the human body. Just as in Charka Philosophy, the jewels can become murky which is exactly the same, in many ways as a charka been blocked. The Jewels are the centres of our spiritual consciousness and regulate our energetic bodies which are nessacery for us to live. The jewels posses facets and these facets are energetic overflows that help maintain the energetic flow, similar to the petals of the blooming lotuses within the Charka system. These energy systems can be controlled through sacred breathing techniques, energy work, ritual work or a combination of all three. Each of the energy centres is connected to the others and through one been murky the others will not function properly. Each Jewel is its own dimension and each appears within our bodies relating to a world of the Tree Of Life. 

Within the context of the Mystical Qabalah, Kether is the source of the divine light, it could be said that Kether sends its light down through the “Aperture of Brahman” which is the depression that everyone has at the base of their skull. It is located eight fingers above the hair line, called within anatomy the Lambda which is the occipital rounded angle that corresponds with the point of meeting of the sagittal and the lambdoid suture in the skull. It is stated within spiritual communities that this is that point that the soul leaves the body. Above this natural gateway sits Kether in Atziluth, which could easily be compared to the thousand petaled lotus of the Sahasraram. In the centre of the skull vault sits Binah, understanding, which we can easily associate with left brained thinking, the right brain would be associated with Chockmah, wisdom. Binah is also symbolic of the great mother and Chockmah the great father. It could be considered that Da’ath, the unknown Spheriot sits in the centre of the skull vault. At this point the worlds seperate and we descend in the world of Yetzirah. Anja, the third eye Charka is then associated with the Spheriot of Chesed, this is the Spheriot of Mercy, as it is through our third eye that we can really have a mercy for all of life. Vishudda the throat is Geburah, Strength, it is through our throat and our voice that we can show our strength, after all the pen is mightier that the sword. Anahata, the heart is linked with Tiphareth, this is the strongest of the links between the two systems, Tiphareth, beauty and the heart charka have much in common, and it is through this strong link of heart, love and beauty that we can see the two systems overlaid with each other.

Manipura just above the navel, the solar plexus, is linked with Netsach, Victory, this is the centre of power in the material world. It can be viewed in some ways as your will power, your direct energy. It is said in certain Indian texts that meditation on the Manipura would allow one to create or destroy the world. Hod, splendour is associated with Svadlstana, just below the navel, this centre encompassed the desire in all to create a world of splendour around us, where our true unconscious desires can manifest themselves into action. Yesod, the Foundation sits in our genitalia it encompasses the force in which we create our foundation in this world. This combines with the final spheroid of Malkuth, the kingdom where all of these energy centres manifest here on this plane.
Below is a more detailed explanation of the Occult Jewels, with there associations and mediative images. You will notice a few things, the images themselves encompass more of a sacred geometry aspect to them and are more intensely linked with the planets.
