THE CENTRAL CHANNEL
The Anahat (Heart) chakra, our doubts, fears, and uncertainties. The love we receive
in our childhood determines the establishment of the centre. If we experience too
much fear and insecurity in our childhood, this can lead to low self-esteem. Parents
roles play an important part in the development of the Anaht, acting as first experience
The lack of interest in spiritual well being and focus on materialism can damage
the Anaht. We can clearly see this when we look at the world today as societies often
seemingly recognising material, financial wealth with often little or no focus on
THE LEFT CHANNEL
This channel represents the material aspect. It is the foundation of love and compassion.
The Atma or the ‘self’, is the external particle that resides in us as the spirit.

towards them. It represents the Father aspect.
