The Ancients built obelisks and similar monoliths around the globe. Some think they were once used as part of an electrically powered grid; while others see them as representations as the rays of light that emanate from the Sun. Human beings are a microcosm of the universe and once again we find a correspondence with the macrocosm: As Above, So Below.
Just as some of our ancient ancestors knew about the Axis Mundi, those in the Orient also understood that we humans have an important energetic column running vertically through our being, connecting the major force centres. When we learn to control this line of energy by breathwork and intonation, we can remove the blockages that have formed in our psychic body, to allow the intended operation of this Light Shaft as a connector between our Soul Star above and Earth Spirit below.
