WHAT ARE THE RHYS METHOD® 12 CHAKRAS GATEWAYS TO YOUR LIFE PURPOSE?
Once you are able to have some clarity about your Primary Rhys Method® Life Purpose Profile you need to understand the mechanism for how to live it in every aspect of your life. The Rhys Method® 12 Chakra Gateways are energy channels that you have to attract your life purpose to you and express it physically, emotionally, in your actions , in your relationships, in how you communicate, in how you think and how you connect to a higher source. Your chakras are specific levels of your awareness tuned only to calling you to, and living your unique life purpose.
If you have chosen your correct profile, your life and your chakras will serve you perfectly. If you have decided to be who you are supposed to be or have vowed not to be all of who you are is when you shut down your chakras and health you will get pain and illness in the area of your life that you rejected. An example is if you reject your feelings (second chakra) you may over time have intestinal issues or headaches. To live a totally healthy life you must embeace the chakras you have. To do that you have to really spend some time getting to know not only what they are but how the speak to you and guide you.
The Rhys Method® Chakras will show you how to live your individual potential–physically, emotionally, socially, mentally and spiritually. Learning to harness and combine all your core qualities and levels of self-awareness allow you to be “congruent” (in agreement) in your thoughts and actions with your deeper spiritual mission. .
To live your life purpose, you must be congruent body, mind and soul. Your life purpose profile gives you the first step by mentally remembering who you have always been. The Rhys Method® Chakras represent the first tool in discovering all the qualities of awareness that need to come into balance if you are to embody and live your life purpose.
HOW DO THE RHYS METHOD® CHAKRAS WORK?
The Rhys Method® Chakras teach you how to become aware of your full potential as a human being. Every conscious person with a human body has twelve levels of consciousness and their only job is to feel and express your life purpose in every moment. These twelve levels of consciousness include your body and its health, your emotional states, your ability to trust others, your willingness to speak your needs, your ability to remember and process information, your deeper spirituality and soul connection to others and your highest calling as an individual in the world.
Most of us train diligently in our profession and still develop only a few of the chakras. The mind is very often over developed and tries to live pragmatically to the detriment of the soul’s natural abilities to feel deeper emotions, or spiritual states of love, power, connectedness and intuition. The body often is treated as a machine that gets fed, exercised and rested only after it behaves and does its work. We learn that shutting down parts of who we are is “normal.”
In the Rhys Method® Chakras, you will see that no part of you can be dormant if you want to live your life purpose. It takes an incredible amount of your energy to keep your natural talents held back or in the dormant or blocked state. Awakening to all twelve levels of your being is to awaken to your full potential and life purpose. Each chakra is an energy center that feeds you direct information as to how to live your life purpose in every moment. As you will learn in the information that follows, each of the twelve levels play an essential role in awakening you to your life purpose. You will learn how to recognize or “see” them in this section. Then in the Rhys Method® Crystal Bowls section, you will begin to awaken your ability to feel the chakras and bring them fully into your life.
THE TWELVE LEVELS OF LIFE PURPOSE CONSCIOUSNESS
The twelve levels of life purpose consciousness are comprised of the seven traditional levels of energy in your body typically called “chakras” and are the awareness and consciousness centers of your body that you use in your daily life. The other five levels are spiritual consciousness centers of awareness that give you your deeper meaning and the ability to live life purposefully and with integrity.
Experiencing any one of the twelve levels fully, or in an unfiltered way, creates a state of inner peace and joyful awareness of your life purpose at that level. Many healing modalities and practices achieve this–such as meditation where a person can become so attuned to the spiritual level they can lower their heart rate, touch red hot embers without blistering and other amazing feats. But that same person may not be able to hold down a job, be a loving parent or spouse or deal with their ever-changing world and life. With an Olympic champion skater, is her life purpose really just to skate? What happens after she retires from skating? What kind of person is she? How deeply does she love? What is her gift in each moment during her 50’s and 60’s?
The goal of the Rhys Method® Chakras is to begin the much more powerful healing path of integrating all the centers, because each one has a very unique way of awakening your life purpose that the others cannot do, no matter how specialized you are in them. By coming into balance with all of them, you give yourself the raw power and conscious awareness to live a truly uncommon and vibrant life until the end of your days.
WHAT IS A CHAKRA?
Although there is a lot of mystery and misunderstanding around what a chakra is, there is nothing mysterious or mystical about it.
A chakra is simply a location or portal within a larger host structure or system where energy of a specific kind is allowed to enter. Once inside, this new energy is able to assimilate with the existing energy in the host which changes both the energy and the host in some way. Then that new energy is expressed back out of the same portal or is transmuted to a higher or lower vibration or quality and is expressed in that way. This enhances the energy of both the host and the quality of the energy that is being sent back out into the world.
The easy example is at the first chakra which is your body, maybe you are cold and shivering and in need of a hug from a warm person. If you get a hug from a warm person you feel better, have more energy and can hug do more with our body. But if there is a block, like a vow to never let stranger hug you or and one that says be self sufficient or don’t bother other people with your problems, you will likely not get the energy you need in your first chakra to be of much good that day.
The health of a chakra is based on how broadly it allows energy and information to trigger it in positive expressions which support the life purpose of the host.
WHAT YOUR CHAKRAS TELL YOU
Chakras practically represent your energetic circuitry that allows you to experience every major aspect of your life. How you let energy flow through them tells you how you will live your life and how close or how far from your life purpose you will live. Knowing your individual capacity to move chakra energy through your system teaches you how you experience life and how you are drawn to your life purpose. If you have the lower body and emotional chakras of an NFL football player–260 pounds and aggressive by nature–ballet may not be the best way of expressing yourself, even if your mom did run a ballet school. This is an obvious example, but for the rest of us, our life choices can be very subtle and more difficult to understand. Knowing how to be guided by your chakras is very helpful.
The Rhys Method® Chakras are the next step to work with after you discover your Rhys Method® Life Purpose Profiles. By understanding the chakras, you will understand the importance of balance between your primary qualities that you likely over use, and your subtle secondary qualities that are there to teach you how to find balance. In the traditional martial arts, the student was trained in both the fighting arts and the subtle arts of calligraphy or tending a tiny garden. Mastery in both would be the test of the real master. One’s life purpose is so simple that most of us miss it completely.
WHY THE RHYS METHOD CHAKRAS ARE DIFFERENT
This information is an introduction to what we call the “graduate level study in the chakras” that we teach at the Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy Medicine.
If you have studied the chakras before, you will notice that The Rhys Method® Chakras have a similar core but are more specific in how they directly impact your life. The Rhys Method® is a unified life-changing system, not just a system of intellectual or meditative learning. The chakra information is not just intellectual speculation; it comes from thousands of hours using the Rhys Method® Crystal Bowls in workshops as well as working with students and clients at the Institute and through private sessions. And it only becomes real when your own unique experience of the chakras awakens within you. Knowing how to recognize them as they actually appear in your life is the beginning of the process.
Once you can see the seven chakras and five spiritual levels flowing through and around you, you will be ready to go deeper into experiencing them through the Rhys Method® Crystal Bowls. The Rhys Method® online store tab, will allow you to download crystal bowl music specifically designed to help you find and feel your chakras and learn how to let those feelings be your guide in discovering your life purpose.

It represents the full present moment understanding of who we are, a situation, or what to do all the way down to the cellular level.
