Path of Energy Meditations
A chakra can be experienced as a rotating vortex in the aura or as a nexus of sensory energy fibers used to explore and connect you to the world. Where you place your attention is where your fibers go. When your fibers anchor in one place, you become grounded in that reality and way of seeing the world. When they are unattached, you have free attention open to explore new ways of thinking and new realities. A balance between anchored and unattached fibers allows for stability, integrity, grounding and commitment while fostering flexibility of thought, openness to new ideas, freedom from limiting beliefs, creativity and tolerance of others.
Chakra Fibers: This meditation helps you explore the seven key physioemotional chakras as they function to sense your environment and anchor you in the world. Becoming aware of this level of the chakra system helps you be more connected to people, animals, plants and all life. It also fortifies your intuitive capacity.
Sit or lie down and relax your mind. Ground, center and establish boundaries.
1. Bring your attention to your entire chakra system and see if one chakra draws your attention. Focus your awareness on that chakra, otherwise focus on the entire system.
2. Imagine energy fibers flowing out of the center you have chosen and exploring the world around you. Feel and see it flow to and around,objects, people, plants and animals. Visualize it touching and investigating what it contacts.
3. Observe the fibers. Notice their color, thickness, flexibility, length, amount of light, and so on. Do they move freely? Are they tangled? Are they lively and awake? Dull or asleep?
4. Notice what percentage are attached and what percentage are free to explore? Is it the right balance for you at this time? If not, allow them to change.
5. Breath vitality into your fibers and imagine them full of life, freedom and joy.
When finished, ground, center and establish boundaries.
