Hi friends! I want to share a chakra healing technique with you today.
This week has been extremely tiring for everyone. Many issues are coming to a head. The citizens of the United States are fed up with police brutality against the Black community.
BLACK LIVES MATTER
As the world marches, we as healers must find inner balance. That we may go out and help heal our world. Healing begins within.
I have been fascinated with spiritual healing since my pre-adolescence. At 18, I began to do further research into chakras: the energy centers of our bodies.
When these 7 chakras are in balance: we have access to our highest potential. We use the word balance here because chakra in Sanskrit means “wheel.” We balance wheels. Balance in the chakras “spins” them, this is activation.
There are 7 chakras that are most commonly referenced:
Third Eye (Purple)
Solar Plexus (Yellow)
Each of these chakras is associated with a color as seen above. Each chakra is also associated with different abilities and behaviors in the physical/spiritual body. A quick video breakdown.
Learning to visualize the colors associated with each chakra during a meditation will help you to balance that chakra. Having your chakras in balance will make the full potential of your energy available to you. Your life force aka prana will flow through you undisturbed.
When a chakra is blocked or out of alignment, the whole body suffers.
I only know and speak from my own experience. I have wanted to align my chakras since I learned of their existence. After many attempts, today: May 31st, 2020 I reached my goal. Yes, it took 16 years. This accomplishment is no less sweet.
Aligning my chakras.
When I first got into yoga, it was with the Yoga Zone DVD’s. The company was run by Alan Finger, a practicing yoga teacher to date. (Since the videos were pretty old, and it’s been sometime: I decided to make sure Alan Finger is in fact still alive. He is. And he’s kind of a badass. )
The Yoga Zone video which introduced me to the practice of visualizing my chakras and their associated color was Flexibility and Stress Release. It was my mom’s copy and I could not find it on YouTube.
After an intense stretch session, Mr. Finger guides the viewer on a meditation while in Savasana. He asks us to guide energy from our feet up our body while stopping at each chakra to activate it. We activate the chakra by visualizing the area of the body it would be at and the color associated with it.
I was able to use this method to activate my chakras but never like I did today. Granted, my experience practicing yoga aided my success. Remember: you can start now.
Today I discovered what methods of my visualization practice worked the best. I want to share them with you.
Visualizing The Chakras
Looking at a chart of where the chakras are can give you an area of focus.
While in a meditation, [it does not matter if you got to that state after a yoga practice or not: the important part is that the mind be still.] visualize the area of your body associated with the chakra you want to balance. I like to start on either end and work my way across the chakras. Root to Crown. Crown to Root. But you may want to focus on just one.
When I visualize the area of my body, I then visualize the color associated with that area. If I am having trouble visualizing the color alone, I think of an object of that color.
Examples of Objects to Visualize:
I then imagine the area being covered by the object. I monitor and consider changes in energy positive. Any energy, for me, indicates an awakening of the chakra being visualized. I stay with the intention for as long as feels right. Then I repeat the process at the next chakra.
3 days ago, I discovered a Guided Abundance Meditation lead by Bob Proctor. Mr. Proctor was featured on the Law of Attraction movie: The Secret (it’s on Netflix). His meditation involves chakra activation using the visualization of light energy.
Today, I was able to align my chakras for the first time in my life while listening to that meditation.
In the meditation, Mr. Proctor challenges the listener to practice the meditation for 30 days. I think I will accept the challenge.
