Yoga traditions tell us that nadis are channels in the subtle body which transmit prana, life force. These invisible pathways circulate throughout our energy system moving in and out of the chakras, conceivably like blood being pumped through the heart. It is typically said that we have 72,000 nadis.
Something I came across about this topic the other day fascinated me. I don’t even remember how I found it or why I was reading what I was reading, but what stayed with me was the suggestion that that “tunnel of light” or the “white light” that has been described by so many people who have had near death experiences is, indeed, a nadi. And it made total sense to me!
In one way or another I think about energy flow every day; it is an ever evolving subject in my life. And as I am a firm believer in the esoteric saying, “As above, so below,” I will put it out there for consideration that there are “nadis” that unite us with even greater bodies in the universe – that they are all part of a super interstellar highway network.
I see this as if we inhabit an invisible grid which sits within consecutively bigger grids, something like nesting dolls, and all of the lines are nadis, connecting all of the grids together. I will also go so far as to say that maybe we even have special coordinates, like cell numbers, within our grids, which is how energy flows to and from us whether it be personal, planetary, or cosmic. It’s sacred geometry, and it’s how we get pinged!
Perhaps my flashes travel to me via nadis. Perhaps lay lines are nadis. Perhaps it is how distance healing is transported from one person to another. Perhaps this is the vehicle for us being contacted by the old friend we had been thinking about recently. Perhaps nadis are affected by intention, prayer, meditation, karma, etc. The list can go on indefinitely; it’s a pretty cool thought, though, right?
Cooler yet, however, if you missed reading between the lines (pardon the pun, truly couldn’t help it) is the idea that nadis are what link humanity together. Perhaps it explains how we, a great many, are all One, part of a framework of longitude and latitude that intersect across time and space. It’s a working theory, of course, but I feel that there just might be something to it.
