Typically, it can take any number of years for the spiritual chakra to completely open up. The Eleventh and the Twelfth chakra do by far take the longest time to fully blossom. It can take one to seven years for the chakra 8 to 10 to open and another additional one to five years for the Eleventh chakra to open. The Twelfth chakra is the last chakra to open, and it will not start opening until the Eleventh is well on its way. How long these chakra actually take to open really depends on the individual and the rate at which that individual is evolving. ( See Hermes extended comment on this in Blog file 11/15/2008).
The Eleventh chakra contains the energetic connections necessary so the individual can manifest advanced spiritual skills, like, travel beyond the limits of time and space, teleportation, bi-location, telekinesis and instantaneous precipitation of thoughts into matter. Keep in mind that while this chakra possesses these skills the individual will not actually start to manifest or master these skills until the twelfth chakra starts to open.
The reason for this advanced skill development is not so the person possesses some neat tricks. No, the reason these skills exist is to help prepare the individual for the next phase of his or her existence after ascension. The eleventh chakra contains the path of the soul in its new form without the restrictions of matter, time and space. It is a glimpse of the individual in its ascended form while still retaining much physical matter. At this stage in the development, the individual has merged with the Soul (mother aspect of divinity) and will soon merge with the Monad (father aspect of divinity). The soul (small "s'") is often referred to as the individual's core self without a physical body. The Soul (capital "S") is the part of the self that has learned all the physical lessons; it is referred to as the mother aspect of divinity. The individual merges with the Soul at some point during the opening of the 8th to 10th chakra. The next step is the merger with the Monad which begins when the 11th and 12th charka begins to open. (Complete merging with the Monadic level of divinity results in Ascension and the annihilation of the physical body and replacement of the light body.)
When the eleventh chakra starts to open the individual will become aware of the larger picture of his or her multidimensional self,: that his or her existence in physical reality is just one manifestation of many simultaneous other existences on other planes of existence. This explanation gives a hint to what awaits the individual after ascension: the working toward becoming conscious on all planes of existence, not just the physical one.
When this awakening to the larger self begins, the individual may get glimpses of his experience in these other dimensions. It can be a bit confusing to the individual if they are unaware of what is happening. For a time they may think they are losing a grip on their reality. However these sporadic incidences into larger dimensions are normal at this stage of development. The monad is waking up in the physical self and starting to introduce the individual gradually to what awaits him or her.
As a result of this expanse in consciousness, many healings on this chakra will deal with helping the individual cope with the changes in his or her experiences beyond the physical. It's important that this chakra open in a gradual and even manner, else the individual be thrust into what seems like a chaotic existence. Gentle rose light or rose quartz can help here to soften the opening of this chakra. Normally the opening and integration of this chakra should go fine, but some individuals have been in the habit of pushing themselves hard throughout their evolutionary process. So when they come to this stage in their development it seems like nothing is happening. They respond by pushing even harder, when in fact a great deal is occurring. This reason is why rose light to the eleventh chakra can help greatly. It introduces the energy of self love and that everything is as it should be. It allows the individual to trust what is happening and to just go with the flow of it all. Most of this unrest occurs in the first year or so that this chakra opens up. After that period the individual will be much more accustomed to the changes.
Now working on the eleventh chakra takes some trick like healing the tenth, as the eleventh chakra is located 15 feet over the head of the individual. Place one hand on the heart chakra and the other hand on the solar plexus. Imagine and feel yourself moving upward though the individual to the eleventh chakra. Let the rose light flow into this chakra. In fact you should always start and finish a healing on this chakra with this rose light. If you want to place crystals around the heart chakra, as you did for the tenth chakra, you can do this as well to help rev-up to the higher chakra. Rose quartz would really do well placed around the heart charka but clear quartz can be used too.
Typical eleventh chakra problems (besides the one mentioned earlier) will deal with the implementation of advanced spiritual skills. Keep in mind that these skills won't really manifest till the twelfth chakra starts to open, but once it does, you will have to go in and try to rewire the particular skill that seems to be erratic. This rewiring technique is very similar to what was discussed in the article on the ninth chakra. The key phrase to use to help lock into this chakra is NEE-PEE-TAH. Vibrate the name silently till you start to see the inner circuitry with your inner sight or your hands start to move making the connections.
When you feel the healing is finished then seal the chakra with rose light. Tell the patient to take it easy for the next few days as the rewiring work settles into the person's energy field. No apparent results may be immediately seen. Typically a healing on the eleventh chakra will take one to four weeks to affect the individual on a physical level, and then an even improvement will be seen over time. If necessary you can repeat an eleventh chakra healing but no sooner than six to eight weeks from the previous healing.
The eleventh chakra is the spiritual library of the individual. In that library are the total contents that he or she will need to operate as a human and divine. Sometimes that content has to be put into order or some housekeeping done. Think of your work on this chakra like a librarian in a library: you are there to put things in order but not to change anything you find.
