An Interview with Author Stephanie S. Larsen
1. Your new book is Discover Your Master Chakra. What exactly is our master chakra?
A master chakra is your most powerful, dominant chakra. Each person has just one chakra that serves as their guiding light in this world. Many people find that their life purpose relates to the core goals of their master chakra, and knowing what it is opens up whole new worlds and ways for them to succeed in doing what they already know how to do.
2. Your book also discusses the seven soul-ray colors. What are these, and how do they correspond to our master chakra?
The reason why one chakra is more active than the rest is because it's connected to our soul-ray. Your entire life path is lived out of the deeds and wonders of one of the color-rays, which emanates from stars beyond our galaxy. The chakra called your master (as you are a master of it) simply hooks onto that ray of light. Therefore, it might not show up on an aura photo, but it can be seen and felt. Conventional astrology deals with the patterns that occur due to the position of stars from our own galaxy; it deals with personality. While the soul-rays influence personality, their total influence on us comes through our core motivations—what moves us to do as we do, and why.
3. How does knowing and understanding our master chakra—and those of our loved ones—help us in our daily lives?
Once you understand what your master chakra is, it will explain to you why you do some of the things you do, and you'll breathe a sigh of relief. You'll find yourself changing how you think about yourself, because you'll see yourself for the gifts you are. In like manner, once you start to understand why others do the things they do (and I mean on a soul-level, not just a reasoned-one,) it will come more naturally to you to treat them with kindness. You'll also be able to care for them more effectively, and communicate with them better, because you'll understand what main concerns really drive their behavior. You'll become more adept at maintaining a relationship with them. You'll be able to identify when they are in their gifts, and when they are in their traps (or over-ego.) This will help you navigate your world more smoothly.
4. Discover Your Master Chakra also includes many quizzes and exercises, and even a workbook. What is the purpose of the workbook?
The workbook for your color helps you apply what you learn in the chapters about your master chakra's main concerns, goals, and purpose in life. (Everyone with the same master chakra can relate to the same key characteristics—it is these characteristics that are discussed in the chapters.) The workbooks elaborate on how you can and do use your attributes to live your life. They help you re-evaluate how you use your gifts, and work through how to overcome the traps, or the dark side, of your light.
5. What do you hope readers will take away from Discover Your Master Chakra?
I hope, first, that anyone who doesn't understand their beauty—their master chakra—realizes that it is a gift, and not something to be dismissed. My goal is for people to realize who they really are. Second, I desire that people begin to let go of some of their judgments about others, in addition to themselves, so they can amp up their own use of their gifts in ways they never thought they could before. I want my readers to become super-powerful, loving people, beyond where they are at today!
