The Twelve Chakra System
The human body contains hundreds of locations where there is focused and
concentrated energy. There are, however, twelve major energy centers, commonly
referred to as "chakras." Chakra is a Sanskrit word which means "wheel." The
chakras are similar to wheels in that they are spinning vortexes of energy. They
are centers of force located within our etheric body, through which we receive,
transmit, and process life energies.
Eastern philosophy has taught a system based on seven chakras for thousands of years and is the basis for spiritual growth in many cultures. Today the angelic realm are teaching a Twelve Chakra system based on lost and forgotten information that will serve as tools to assist humanity in its spiritual journey.
Each chakra in the body is recognized as a focal point for life-force relating to spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental energies. The chakras are the network through which the mind, body, and spirit interact as one holistic system. These major chakras correspond to specific aspects of our consciousness and have their own individual characteristics and functions. Most have a corresponding relationship to one of the various glands of the body's endocrine system, as well as to colors of the rainbow spectrum.
The main purpose in working with and understanding the chakras is to create integration and wholeness within ourselves. In this way we bring the various aspects of our consciousness from the physical to the spiritual, into a harmonious relationship. Ultimately, we begin to recognize that the various aspects of ourselves all work together, and that each aspect is as much a part of the whole as the others. We must be able to acknowledge, integrate, and accept all levels of our being.
To help us in the process of our unfolding it is most important to understand that the chakras are doorways for our consciousness. They are the doorways through which emotional, mental, and spiritual force flow into physical expression. They are openings through which our attitudes and belief systems enter into and create our mind/body structure. The energy created from our emotional and mental attitudes runs though the chakras and is distributed to our cells, tissues and organs. Realizing this brings tremendous insight into how we ourselves affect our bodies, minds, and circumstances for better or for worse. To understand the chakras and their relationship to our consciousness, is to better understand ourselves. Understanding ourselves will enable us to make our choices and decisions from a place of balance and awareness, rather than being blindly influenced by forces we do not understand.

Additional Chakras as described by Metatron
EIGHTH CHAKRA - INFRA RED - OMEGA
Location: midway between the root chakra and the knees
Color: infrared, a combination of red and blue
Function: An energy transference chakra. It takes in energy from the world and other people, plants and animals and operates like a step-down or step-up transformer. Seeing the whole body and the Chakras an integrated energy system, the Omega transfers energy from outside the body to inside increasing or decreasing it as necessary to stimulate energy flow and release blocks.
Qualities/lessons: It is also like a two-way valve, we can use the Omega to release stored/stagnant Chi or energy, or for clearing a block/learning the lesson. Used to release also when we ask the angels/spirit to assist us to transmute negative thoughts and belief systems, past words, actions or deeds.
Negative qualities: inactivity/sloth, emotionalism - empathic abilities run riot, getting into other people's stuff and not focusing on self growth.
NINTH CHAKRA - ULTRA VIOLET - ALPHA
Location: Between 12 and 18 inches out from the top of the head.
Color: Ultra Violet - blue and violet
Function: This chakra is the access to information about Karma, lessons, our learning abilities, doorways to dimensions and times as well as the Akashic records. When we access past life information it is through this chakra. Occasionally we can access this information in the dream state, when there is important information to be communicated to us. Often spirit/angels will use this tool to get our attention. The dream state many times expresses ideas in symbols and it is our job to interpret the symbols presented. We can of course gain confirmation of our interpretation through meditation. But first the idea or lesson must be accessed.
Qualities/lessons: Innate knowledge of the law of Karma, other dimensions and Akashic records, past life interpretation
Negative qualities: too much reliance on outside guidance, looses communication with the higher self within
TENTH CHAKRA - SILVER - TERRA
Location: midway between the knees and the feet
Function: The Grounding Chakra, a receptive energy with a positive flow containing the elements of wind, earth, water and fire. It is the anchor to the physical world. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience. We need to stay balanced, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.
Equally the chakras must be balanced. We are not just to work on the spiritual or upper chakras, but all of them equally. We are here in the physical for a purpose to learn and grow through the experience. It is through the Terra Chakra that we ground and connect to the earth (Gaia). This is where our sense of knowing 'nature' develops and understanding the naturalness of the cycles of life. Birth, growth then death. It is repeated everywhere in nature, in the plant life, the animal life, the mineral life even in the cosmos.
Qualities/lessons: Keeping balance here helps us to stay grounded and understand the nature of our life, the cycles and the patterns within it. It allows us to develop our natural knowing.
Negative qualities: In the unbalanced, ungrounded state we develop fears about the cycles of life, loose connection with our spiritual knowing.
ELEVENTH CHAKRA - GOLD - ANGELIC
Location: Between 18 and 24 inches out from the top of our head
Function: The angelic chakra contains the programming of the soul for this lifetime and the history of the soul. It is through our connection and understanding of this chakra that we gain or effect our own healings, insights, learn our lessons, understand the soul contracts and begin to understand our life purpose.
Qualities/lessons: As we continue to evolve as physical/spiritual beings our understanding of this chakra is strengthened. We can begin to see (re-remember) the goals we came into this life to achieve. As we grow in understanding we can endeavor to achieve those goals by living our life in the flow of its purpose instead of against it.
Negative Qualities: None, communication from the angelic realm cannot be negative.
Uncommon Understanding of the Chakras
I know that the common understanding of chakras is related to the seven main chakras. My research, and discussions with Michael and Gabriel, has led me to a twelve chakra system. This is to be used specifically with the tuning forks, but can also be used to determine origins of ailments as well as areas for essential oil application.- Joe Crane
