I am “intuiting” that the vibrating spot at the top back of my head (mentioned in the previous post) is associated with the “silver cord” and crown chakra. I experienced this cord in a personal past life regression session in hypnotherapy training. I left my physical body via an “umbilical cord” and incarnated via the same cord.
The following is from http://www.near-death.com/science/research/silver-cord.html#a04
This silver cord is our spirit body’s “lifeline” to our physical body in the same way that our umbilical cord is our “lifeline” to our mother’s body during the birth process.
During the death process, should the physical body be subjected to a violent death, such as in a severe car accident, the silver cord is severed before the impact preventing the pain that is experienced by the physical body from being felt by the spirit body.
The existence of the silver cord is even mentioned in the Bible:
“Remember him – before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.” (Ecclesiastes 12:6-7)
