Chakras explained to children

Today i want to speak to you about chakras. You must know that in these days it is very difficult for people to understand what chakras are, but in the future, when the people have a better understanding about God and about how God made everything, the people will find chakras very simple to understand. Everything which God made is never so complicated. It only looks complicated if we have not the right view on it.

Suppose that you would be a little fly which lives in the wool of a sheep. All you see, day in day out, is wool. Sometimes the wool gets a little wet from the rain, sometimes the wool is dirty, sometimes it is dry. Sometimes it is dark and sometimes it is light. But all that the little fly sees is only wool, wool, wool. The fly doesn’t understand that the light comes from the sun in the day and the darkness from the night. It doesn’t understand about the rain and surely it doesn’t understand much about the sheep. The fly never even saw the whole sheep. The fly doesn’t know that the sheep eats grass. The fly doesn’t know how the sheep looks. The fly only sees wool, wool, wool.

That is a little how people look at the human body. They don’t look enough from a little farther away. The bodies of people are so important for people. They feed the body, they let the body sleep, they put clothing over the body. Because they find the body so important, they are always busy with the needs of the body. But just like the fly, which is always going around in the wool of the sheep to look there for a little food in the wool, the people go around and only see what the physical body needs. They cannot so easily take a distance from the body and find out what God thinks about the body.

What is a body? This is a good question to think about. Do you know what is a body?

When you look at a stone, it is a dead thing but when it falls on your foot, you feel it very well. This shows that there is something in the stone that makes an impression to you. This is what we call energy.

Today it is a hot day, like it has been for over one week. Each day the sun shines very brightly and makes you feel warm, right? How do we call this getting warm? You get warm from the energy of the sun.

The sun also changes your body. When you walk in the sunlight, your skin gets colored. The body changes because the sun shines on it. This, again, is because the sun gives energy to the body.

When you eat food, your body also changes. What happens when you eat a lot of sweeties? You get very fat. And what happens when you don’t eat at all? You get very very skinny. So you see, food changes the body. And how do you feel when you didn’t eat after you worked very hard for a whole day? Then you feel very tired. We say that you have no energy. So, you see, food also gives energy to your body.

What is energy then? Energy came from God and comes from God. Energy is what makes all things exist and move. When the sun shines on us, it is nice warm. When you are hungry, the food tastes very nice. What i want to say with this is that the energy that we get is not just energy. This energy can feel very good to you. Sometimes, when someone hates you and gives you a beating, the energy you get from such a person is very terrible. But always there is something in energy that is more than energy. There is something in energy that makes you feel good. That what makes you feel good, this came from God, originally; and this is what we call love.

There is love in energy. And energy makes that everything goes and that your body is warm and that it can move. Energy makes that you can see the world around you and also that you can hear my words while i speak

Our bodies are made from energy. When you have a radio, it makes sound. The radio doesn’t just work when you don’t put energy into it. You must put energy into the radio. You have to put batteries in the radio or you have to connect it to the electrical system. In that way, energy comes into the radio.

In the same way that a radio needs something to get energy, the body also needs connections where the energy comes in. The body gets energy from the sun. So there is a place in your body that can get the energy from the sun and that place in the body sends the energy of the sun all through the body so that the whole body can use it. There also is a place in the body that can get energy out from food. That energy also is then sent through the whole body. There is a place in the body that takes energy out from the air. We all must breathe all the time. When you don’t breathe, you die. The energy from the air is very important. And of course there is a place where the energy of the air comes in.

All the places where energy comes into our body and where it is then sent through so that the whole body can use it, these places we call chakras. There are seven chakras in the body.

We often use another word for 'chakra' and that is switchwheel. The name switchwheel means: switch and wheel. A switch means something with which you put the light on or off, or the car on or off. A wheel means a place where everything goes round. When you have a bucket with water and you move a stick in the water, the water turns around like it would be a wheel. Energy that comes into your body must find its way into the body. That doesn’t go right away. Therefore that energy begins to move around like the wheel of your bicycle goes around.

The chakras in our body are the most important parts of our bodies. In the top of your head you have a chakra that makes that the love and energy of God come into you. When you pray to God, you can feel this in the top of your head. When God speaks to you, you feel it coming into you in the top of your head. That is because in the top of your head there is the crown chakra.

The four elements of creation explained to children

During the past few months i have been studying to understand about how our bodies work and also how all of creation is made. Today i want to tell you something about what i found out.

You know that God exists, but God is invisible. We cannot see God. We cannot touch God. We cannot hear God with our physical ears. We only know that God is in us and that God speaks in our hearts. You also know that God is everywhere in nature around us. God is in the beauty of a flower and God is in the goodness of people.

God is invisible. But you can feel your own body and when you walk with your dog, then you know that he can pull very hard on the line so that you must be careful that you don’t fall. Sometimes it rains very hard and then you get wet. Then you feel this very well and you hear the rain.

What i try to tell you is that on the one side, there is God, Whom you cannot see. But God made everything. On the other side, there are all the things and the living beings which God has made. Is that not strange, that God, Who is invisible, could make all the things and the living beings which are very well visible and touchable?

When you think about this, then it must be so that there is some kind of thing which is in-between God and all what God created. Is that not logical? That there has to be something in-between God, Who is invisible, and all what God created which is visible?

Why do i think this? When you think of a car, then first it stands somewhere. Then, when you start the motor, it can drive around. Do you think that to start the motor and to drive the car you only need to turn the key? No, much more is needed. Do you know what is needed most of all? There is needed gas for the motor. And the gas is actually something that provides energy.

In all the things that were made and that are visible, there is something that we call energy. How do the plants grow? A plant needs all kind of things. It needs water and fertilizer and it also needs light and warmth. When you put a plant on a dark place, it will not grow anymore.

The light also is a form of energy. Also the warmth from the sun is a kind of energy. All created things are made out of energy. Also you yourself need energy. Can you live long without taking in food? The motor of a car needs gas, but the body of a human being needs food. Food gives energy to the body so that the body can work.

What did we now discover? I began with speaking about God, Who created everything but Who is invisible. And all the created things are very well visible. But how can these things now relate to God?

This is because in-between God and all the created things and beings there is something that we call energy. Actually, in God there is energy and in all the things there also is energy. But can you feel energy? Can you see it? Energy is a strange thing. When the sun shines on you, you can feel the warmth. The warmth is a kind of energy. But also the energy in the food is energy. Food makes your body that it can work. But can you see the energy in the food? In a sense, what you can see in energy is not the energy itself, but you see or sense that which the energy does with you. The energy of the sun makes you warm, but the energy itself is not so easily visible.

So we see that energy, on the one side is invisible, like God Himself is invisible, and on the other side, energy makes that all things work and therefore can also be touched and felt.

Today i will try to explain to you about how all the things of creation have been made. Until now i only have explained you about energy. God made all things of creation out of energy. And this energy can be seen and felt in different ways. Some energy you feel as warmth, like the sun beams, other energy gives a push, like energy that makes a car to drive around.

In the beings of creation, there are four types of energy that make that all beings of creation can exist. First there is a type of energy which is closest to God. Just think of yourself. When a baby is born, it comes out from the mother. In the mother, the baby doesn’t breathe yet. When a lamb comes out from the mother sheep, it didn’t breathe yet because it is closed in the belly of the sheep. When the lamb comes out, the first what the lamb must do is to breathe. We call this breathing the breath of life. What do you breathe in? It is air. So, air which has life in it, that is the energy which is in all living beings and this energy is closest to God.

What does a living being need more? Did you see a dead animal sometimes? A dead animal is cold. But a living being is warm. The sun is the body in the sky that gives us warmth and it also gives us light. The sun is actually a big ball of fire. So the second type of energy that is needed for all living beings is what we could call fire. Fire is the second element of creation. Air is the element of God, and fire is what you could call the fatherly or the masculine element.

What else is needed for all living beings? The third element or type of energy is water. Nothing can live without water. Sometimes we speak about the water of life. This way of saying shows that life cannot exist without water. Water is a kind of energy. In water is a lot of energy and this energy is also needed for making living beings. Our own bodies almost entirely exist of water. Water is the motherly kind of energy that is needed for creations.

There is one more element of creation which is needed for everything which lives. This fourth element of creation is what we call the earth. The earth means the earth itself, but it also means all the minerals that exist. God made a number of minerals out of which everything exists. For example, iron is a mineral and in our bodies, there is also iron. And iron, when you look at it very closely, is just a type of energy. All the minerals together, that is what we call earth. And earth is also a type of energy.

The first type of energy brings God into the living beings. That first type of energy is the breath of life or air.

The second type of energy brings fatherly energy into all living beings. That second element of creation is called fire.

The third type of energy brings motherly energy into all living beings. That third element of creation is called water.

The fourth type of energy brings Godly, fatherly and motherly elements united into all living beings. That fourth type of energy is what can be felt the best. Nevertheless it is a type of energy. It is energy which is mostly visible and it is called earth.
