Chakra Meditation

Chakra meditation is a great way to enhance your spiritual wellness and well being. By doing chakra meditation, you change your energy. When you change your energy, you not only feel better, but it may also help you to move ahead on your path more easily.

That's why chakra meditation can be great for when you feel blocked in some way. Keeping your energy clean and flowing helps you to connect to a higher level of vibration. Your Self and the Universe (God, Higher Source, etc) communicate more easily because the universe doesn't have to go through all the energetic muck that's accumulated in your energy system.

A Quick Overview of Chakras and Chakra Meditation

The word "chakra" is Sanskrit meaning "wheel" or "disk". They are circular, funnel shaped energy centers that are thought to be located in the etheric energy body, also called the subtle body.

The etheric body is the non-physical body, which is superimposed upon our physical bodies. It is an exact duplicate of our physical body but in a higher energy form. It can be measured as the electromagnetic fields that are within and surround everything.

Chakras transmit energy into the physical body. They also broadcast out into the energy field around us the vibration of our thoughts, emotions, and physical health. If you can see energy psychically, looking at a person's chakras and aura can give you a peek at what they might be feeling or how well their emotions and physical body are functioning.

I've noticed the difference that chakra meditation can make on the energy system in my students. When I teach people to do chakra meditation, there is a tangible difference that I can feel in their energy and sometimes the energy of the room from before and after the chakra meditation. I can psychically see the before and after difference in their chakras.

Chakras are most commonly symbolized as cones of whirling energy or petalled flowers. Chakras have openings in the front of the etheric body as well as the back, except for the crown (pointing up) and root (pointing down) chakras which have one opening.

Chakras Used in Typical Chakra Meditations

There are considered to be seven major chakras aligned along the spine. These are the ones that most chakra meditation mp3s focus on. Here they are:

Root Chakra

The first chakra, the Root Chakra, connects us to the earth, and is about our foundations and family. This is also where we feel safety and security when we feel we are stable and on our feet.

Common name: Root Chakra, Base Chakra Sanskrit name:

Muladhara (meaning Support)

Location: Base of spine, Perineum

The Root chakra is a red cone of energy pointing down toward the earth. In a chakra meditation, the red is visualized as bright and vibrant as possible and reaching down from the perineum between the legs.

Sacral Chakra

The second chakra, the sacral chakra, is associated with the strength of feminine energy (in both males and females), and creativity.

Common name: Sacral Chakra, Splenic Chakra (in some Eastern systems this chakra is located over the spleen)

Sanskrit name: Svadhisthana (meaning sweetness)

Location: Lower abdomen, about two inches below the navel

Your sacral Chakra is orange in colour. There are two cones of energy - one that comes out in the front of the body, and one in the back of the body. In a chakra meditation, you can think of a really ripe orange to help you get the richness of the orange colour to visualize.

Solar Plexus Chakra

The third chakra, the solar plexus chakra, is the willpower center, center of personal power, self-worth, self-esteem. This is the same area where you get that gut intuitive feeling or gut instinct.

Common name: Solar Plexus Chakra

Sanskrit name: Manipura (meaning Lustrous Gem, or Jewel of the Navel)

Location: Solar plexus, upper abdomen, below breastbone, about two inches above the navel

Your solar plexus chakra is a bright yellow. It has two cones of energy, one in the back and one in the front. In a chakra meditation, think of the sun and how bright yellow it is. That's how brightly you want to visualize your solar plexus chakra.

Heart Chakra

The fourth chakra, the heart chakra, is where we hold love - for others and ourselves. Here we develop compassion and forgiveness. Love connects us to others and the universe.

Common name: Heart Chakra

Sanskrit name: Anahata (meaning Unbeaten or unstuck)

Location: Center of chest

Your heart chakra is emerald green or pink in colour. It has two cones of energy, one in the back and one in the front. In a chakra meditation, either pink or emerald green is fine. Neither is better than the other. It's what resonates with you.

Throat Chakra

The fifth chakra, the throat chakra, is about self-expression, creativity and communication skills. This chakra is linked to clairaudience or psychic hearing.

Common name: Throat Chakra

Sanskrit name: Visshudha (meaning Purification)

Location: Middle of throat

Your throat chakra is sky blue. It has two cones of energy, one in the back and one in the front. In a chakra meditation, you want to make the blue a rich sky blue or the blue that you see in the Caribbean waters. No baby blues or pastels please.

Third Eye Chakra

Chakra six, the third eye chakra, is our center of inner vision, imagination and intuition. This is where we can access clairvoyance or psychic seeing.

Common name: Third Eye or Brow Chakra

Sanskrit name: Ajna (meaning to Perceive or Command)

Location: Middle of forehead (not middle of eye brows)

Your 3rd eye chakra is indigo in colour. It has two cones of energy, one in the back and one in the front. In a chakra meditation, think of the midnight-blue sky to help you with the colour of indigo.

Crown Chakra

Chakra seven, the crown chakra, connects us to our higher selves, higher consciousness and the divine wisdom of the universe.

Common name: Crown Chakra

Sanskrit name: Sahasrara (meaning Thousand-fold or Thousand-Petalled lotus)

Location: Top of head, slightly forward

Your crown chakra is violet, white, or silver in colour. There is one cone of energy which opens upward.

Why do Chakras become Clogged Up?

You are an energetic being. Your thoughts and emotions are also energy. Chakras become clogged with murky looking, slow, dense energy when we have thoughts and emotions that are full of self-criticism, prolonged anger, prolonged guilt - all the negative types of energies that we generally try to keep ourselves from falling into.

Your physical body can also affect how your chakras are operating. It is commonly believed that your thoughts, emotions and physical health are all interconnected.

I've seen people who are sick whose energy system is murky, weak, small, and cloudy. I've also seen chakras in varying states of health - from being small and generally bright, to oddly shaped, dull in colour, huge and bright, light and happy feeling, dark and heavy.

These are all reflections of the person's state of mind, emotions and physical health. Negative emotions, foods that are not healthy, stress, being surrounded by negative people - all these things can start to affect the quality of the vibration of your energy.

These tend to be lower frequency, slower waves of energy that you may absorb or introduce into your energy system. When this happens, it starts to interfere with how your chakras are able to process energy. That's when chakras get clogged up and may start to become blocked.

How Chakra Meditation Works

Chakra meditation uses the power of your mind and your ability to visualize to change your energy. Your mind can affect energy.

Chakra meditation helps you to keep your mind focused and leads you through each chakra. You are guided to perceive each chakra in the meditation.

Sometimes I have students who have trouble seeing or are still working on opening up their clairvoyance skills. This is okay if you can't actually see your chakras psychically.

You don't need to in order to have chakra meditation be effective for you. In these cases, I ask my students to feel, imagine what they think their chakras look like, or just know what that particular chakra is like.

However you perceive is fine. It's the intention and the focus that are important in clearing your chakras.

The chakra meditation that I offer to people can be done daily or whenever you feel you need to. Once you get into the routine, you don't even need to use the mp3 any more although some people really like being guided through it.

If you find there is one particular chakra that is harder to visualize or takes longer to clear, it means that there a particular resistance in the energy field. Sometimes it's a belief about ourselves or the world that we hold to stubbornly. Other times it's because we habitually neglect our own needs of rest and relaxation.

If you have trouble visualizing the colour, you might want to pick up some bright paint chips, one for each chakra colour and have it with you for the chakra meditation. You can use them as reference as you need to.

There are other techniques that I teach in my classes to clear your chakras and aura. I also teach people to have healthy strong energetic boundaries so they don't pick up other peoples' energy as much. However, I do believe that your mind is the most powerful and useful tool you have and that doing chakra meditation is an easy, effective and simple method for keeping your chakras in good working order.

How To Develop Your Sixth Sense

This article is dedicated to those who are looking for some info about sixth-sense development, such as fortune-telling, clairvoyance, plant and animal communication, out-of-body experiences, etc.

Before, I deeply believed that those titles belonged only to super-humans born with "gifts." I never thought that one day, I could unblock some of those abilities through removing subconscious programming from my mind.

You might ask, "How is it possible to do that?"

Well, if you've read my previous articles, I have written about human mind programming there.

Humanity live in Collective Consciousness, which means we are all connected energetically like a spider web. Beliefs, memories and negative patterns connect us and create some kind of Matrix.

We live in the Matrix world, a little like the movie The Matrix - my favorite one.

This loud mind-chat you have in your head on a daily basis produces many different thought forms, and as a result, it creates a long chain of emotions-not always happy ones.

Many spiritual teachers are constantly promoting one dogma: "Live in the present moment; cultivate only positive emotions and happiness will appear."

All of that sounds great, doesn't it?

But you still have that negative, toxic chatter, so for many people it is hopeless. Spiritual and motivational "gurus" simply tell you to forget all that is negative and change it into positive emotions, and by doing so your life will change.

Manipulating energy to create a change is possible, and it gives positive outcomes for many people. But it is not true change, not true happiness.

When we use our logical mind, those negative mind emotions should go somewhere. If you try to be positive and happy when the truth is the opposite, the negativity won't magically go away from your mind.

The projection of your conscious mind will suppress toxic energy to the deeper layers of your subconscious mind, giving you the illusion that it is all gone.

But reality and truth are bitter. Sometimes it is really harsh.

You've been hijacked by energy parasites through social engineering, changes in

DNA structures, or life-long traumas, bad memories or conflicts in your relationships.

All of these things still exist in your system, draining your life-force energy and disconnecting you from your true authentic self and your natural abilities.

Your sixth-sense abilities can be unblocked naturally through a special process. Step by step, you can calm down your loud mind chatter and realize how powerful of a human being you are.

It may sound a bit mystical, reserved only for those who are gifted, but it is your human right to psychically sense the "unknown" naturally.

It took me a lot of time to unblock some of those abilities. Previously, I had no expectation that I could communicate with other beings such as dogs or plants.

If you project an expectation to the outcome you require, that produces an energy block to the natural flow of your own manifestation.

What you persist in, resists at the end of the day.

Only emotional detachment and resilience make things happen in your life.

Remember that you are a beautiful and divine being who has an infinite power to create what you desire.

Exercise Motivation : The Power of Potential

It was Steven Pressfield who acknowledged, "The song we're composing already exists in potential. Our work is to find it."

Every man yearns to express his potential through his life and work. The dictionary defines potential as: latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success or usefulness.

Potential evokes the impression of an idle car, roaring with possibility before hurtling down the road. It is the car's engine and driver that decide the car's speed. Yet, without someone to take control of the vehicle, there is little potential to speak of.

I recall taking an elective subject in automotive design at university. The lecturer, a former automotive designer, spoke of how the badge ornament for the Ford Mustang, the galloping wild horse, came to be. The final design has come to evoke a sense of movement and potential, so that even while stationary, the car conveys the image of movement.

Regrettably, many people are held back by limiting beliefs, fears and doubts related to their potential. Left unchecked, these destructive energies perpetuate into a contracted self-worth.

Whatever you buy into long enough and with enough conviction, forms your reality.

We recognise potential within ourselves foremost when we abide by our highest distinction. In doing so, it summons our dormant strengths and commitment toward greatness.

Consequently, the power of potential is the idle horse ready to gallop.

Potential necessitates discipline, attention and commitment to bring it to life. "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free," declared Michelangelo.

It must be said that potential is harnessed when you give yourself to the process. The greatest minds in history began life with little potential. Abraham Lincoln's learning difficulties as a young man is an example of one who transformed potential into achievement.

To cultivate potential, we hold steadfast to move in the right direction, without becoming fixed on the path which leads us there. Potential must be obvious to the individual and is accompanied with passion and desire.

"Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes time. Vision with action can change the world," states futurist and author Joel A. Barker.

Make it your duty to nurture your strengths since passion and enthusiasm alone only get you so far.

An indomitable will, spawned by inspiration rouses potential.

It is through dedicated focus toward a vision or dream that transforms desire into action since strong aspirations alone are insufficient.

"The difference between those people living their potential and those who don't, is not the amount of potential itself, but the amount of permission they give themselves to live in the present," avows spiritual teacher and author Marianne Williamson.

Whatever is possible is attributed to the mind that can conceive it.

The realisation of our goals and dreams are constrained only by our limiting beliefs. They slow if not halt progress altogether, because the same creative intelligence that manifests our desires, also gives birth to our insecurities.

The power to unleash potential is overcome by rising above our obstacles, instead of being defeated by them.

Potential is clothed in: hard work, an indomitable will, commitment and courage. To take a contrasting view, I equate lack of potential to simmering water which never boils because the heat is turned down.

In recent times there's been much discussion given to the widely held opinion we use ten percent of our brain power. Whilst acknowledged as an urban myth, I believe we are yet to tap into our other faculties, such as intuition or the deeper subconscious mind to harness potential.

In The Power of Habit, author Charles Duhigg suggests we reveal our potential by developing sound habits. Many people's failures are attributed to poor habits gained throughout their lifetime.

To nurture potential, we form a strong foundation to harness those gifts and cultivate them as we evolve.

I am fond of the saying, Life doesn't know what it will become until you create it.

Similarly, author Michael Talbot who wrote The Holographic Universe affirms, "We are not born into the world. We are born into something that we make into the world."

Potential exists in all living things and is the lifeblood of universal intelligence. To allow this intelligence to act through us brings to life that which resonates with our deepest self. The same energy which gives birth to our ambitions does so at the right time and not a moment sooner.

"Everything in the Universe, including you, your soul, everyone else, and every soul, participates in a continual unfolding of potential," avows the American spiritual teacher Gary Zukav.

You cannot escape your potential any more than refusing to inhale oxygen from the air surrounding you. However, how you use that potential forms the foundation for life to express herself through you.

Steven Pressfield struck upon a crucial point in the opening quote: that all potential exists within the space-time realm.

Your task is to birth that potential by giving it life through: dedication, commitment and inspired action.
