A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section One - Division E - Motion on the Physical and Astral Planes
I would like to describe these centers in greater detail, dealing with them as seen in etheric matter, and basing what I say upon a similar statement by Mr. C. W. Leadbeater in "Inner Life," Vol. I, page 447-460. We will note the colors and petals:
  1. The base of the spine, four petals. These petals are in the shape of a cross, and radiate with orange fire.
  2. The solar plexus, ten petals rosy color with admixture of green.
  3. The heart center, twelve petals glowing golden.
  4. The throat center, sixteen petals of a silvery blue, with blue predominating.
  5. The head center in its twofold divisions:
    1. Between the eyebrows, consisting of ninety-six petals, one-half of the lotus being rose and yellow, and the other half blue and purple.
    2. The very top of the head. A center consisting of twelve major petals of white and gold, and nine hundred and sixty secondary petals arranged around the central twelve. This makes a total of ten hundred and sixty-eight petals in the two head centers (making the one center) or three hundred and fifty-six triplicities. All these figures have an occult significance.

Just as the Monad is the sumtotal of all the three aspects, and of the seven principles of man, so is the head center a replica of this, and has within its sphere of influence seven other centers with itself for synthesis. These seven centers are likewise divided into the three major and the four minor centers, with their union and consummation seen in the gorgeous center surmounting and enveloping them all. There are also three physical centers, called [169]

  1. The alta major center,
  2. The pineal gland,
  3. The pituitary body,

with four lesser centers. These four lesser centers are blended in that center which we call the alta major center and need not concern us. I would here also point out that there is a close connection:

  1. Between the alta major center and the throat center.
  2. Between the heart center and the pituitary body.
  3. Between the head center and the pineal gland.

It would repay the student to contemplate the interesting succession of triangles that are to be found and the way in which they must be linked by the progression of the fire before that fire can perfectly vivify them, and thence pass on to other transmutations. We might enumerate some of these triangles, bearing always in mind that according to the ray so will proceed the geometric rising of the fire, and according to the ray so will the points be touched in ordered sequence. Herein lies one of the secrets of initiation, and herein is found some of the dangers entailed in a too quick publication of information concerning the rays.

  1. The pranic triangle.
    1. The shoulder center.
    2. The center near the diaphragm.
    3. The spleen.
  2. Man controlled from the astral plane.
    1. The base of the spine.
    2. The solar plexus.
    3. The heart.
  3. Man controlled from the mental plane.
    1. The base of the spine.
    2. The heart.
    3. The throat. [170]
  4. Man partially controlled by the Ego, advanced man.
    1. The heart.
    2. The throat.
    3. The head, i.e., the four lesser centers and their synthesis, the alta center.
  5. Spiritual man to the third Initiation.
    1. The heart.
    2. The throat.
    3. The seven head centers.
  6. Spiritual man to the fifth Initiation.
    1. The heart.
    2. The seven head centers.
    3. The two many-petalled lotuses.
