Sacred ancient traditions teach us that there are 7 pathways to higher consciousness. Becoming continually aware of the power and vivaciousness of these pathways requires that you do some soul searching, because these dynamic energy centers have physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual expressions. These 7 pathways are sacred and as you bring light and consciousness to each of them, you open doors to higher living, and a substantially more creative, healthy, loving, and fulfilling life.
Paramahansa Yogananda wrote, “In its conscious upward passage through the seven opened or awakened centers, the soul travels the highway to the infinite, the true path in which the soul must retrace its course to reunite with God. All seven centers are often referred to as lotuses, whose petals open, or turn upward, in spiritual awakening.”
