FELICITY BUTLER: “Pranic Breathing — Feed Your Energy Body With Light”

We all have an energy body which is a replica of our physical body. It is extremely important to our health and well-being, especially as we move up into the higher frequencies to nurture and feed this energy body. This body can be called our pranic body or etheric body.

The pranic body feeds our energy centers, i.e., chakras, which are spinning vortex gateways that bring in the life-force energy. The chakras are all connected to our endocrine system, which controls the various very important functions of our body.

You can practice very simple visualization/meditation techniques to make sure you are receiving enough chi/life force in your energy system.

I like to do these exercises while walking in nature, and found them very healing when I was going through a traumatic event in my life. If you are near trees you can intentionally bring in their energy, or if you are by water bring in energy from the water. Water is our emotional body. I also visualize bringing the cosmic light down into the earth with each step, and send the earth energy up into the cosmos, creating a rainbow bridge.

The 4 different stages of the pranic breathing technique

Practice each one until you feel comfortable with it.

1. Firstly, imagine you have a hollow tube that is as wide as a circle you can create by placing your thumb and index finger together, like an OK sign. The tube runs from the top of your head to the base of your spine, but you can also extend it up into the universe and down into the center of the earth. On your first inhale imagine bringing up pranic energy from the earth into the hollow tube, hold for a few seconds and then release with a sigh. On the second inhalation imagine bringing in pranic cosmic energy from the Universe, hold for a few seconds and then release with a sign. Practice until you can feel this energy.

2. Carry on as above, only this time as you hold your breath for a few seconds keep your attention on the pranic tube as you exhale with a sigh. On your inhale from the cosmos, hold breath for a second or two while focusing on the pranic tube, then when you release take your attention to your whole physical body. Energy flows where the intention goes. Keep practicing until you can feel a flow of energy from your pranic tube to you whole body.

3. Bring your awareness to your heart chakra, center of your chest, bring yourself into a state of love and gratitude, make sure you can feel this. When you can sense this feeling strongly inhale drawing the prana from the earth into your heart space. Suspend your breath for a while as you focus on your heart chakra, still holding the feeling of love and gratitude. When you let go of your breath move your awareness from your heart into your physical body and allow the now ‘charged’ prana to expand into your whole body.

4. Bring your awareness to your heart chakra. Bring earth prana and cosmic prana simultaneously into the heart center, then exhale.

Imagine that you can feel both the cosmic and earth energies entering you heart chakra with every breath. Visualize your heart chakra expanding with each breath until it fills your whole chest.

Meditate on your expanded heart center, balancing your whole being.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Simple Healing Methods For Each Of Your 7 Chakras”

Ascension Avatar note: Slim pickin’s today… slim pickin’s… There are actually 15 chakras: 1 – Red Crystal, 2 – Orange Crystal, 3 – Yellow Crystal, 4 – Green Crystal, 5 – Blue Crystal, 6 – Indigo Crystal, 7 – Violet Crystal, 8 – Gold Crystal, 9 – Silver Crystal, 10 – Sapphire Crystal, 11 – Dark Silver Crystal, 12 – White Crystal, 13 – Aquamarine Crystal, 14 – Pale Gold, 15 – Magenta. 🙂

.  .  .

 

There are numerous methods available for healing chakras. Whereas some of them work, some of them will not work, and the reason for that will be because each of the chakras is connected with a distinct frequency realm.

The six chakras in our body are ordered in the form of a pyramid. So, the first one is the lowest, and it is actually the heavy and wide base of that pyramid, while the highest chakra, the sixth one, is a representation of the top of that pyramid. The sixth chakra is airy, light, as well as easily mutable, and the first one is heavy, dense, and challenging to make changes on. Additionally, each of the chakras symbolizes some distinct elements.

Also, each of them needs distinct methods of healing, and here we will present you some, which you can try.

Methods for healing of each of the chakras:

First (Root) chakra

As the first one is the heaviest, densest, as well as most connected to our physical body, most of the healing will come from physical activities such as Hatha yoga.

The first chakra is connected to our sense element, as well as treatments oriented to smell, such as aromatherapy, which works best. As the earth is the first chakra’s element, gemstones can also be used for some treatments. Also, gardening, particularly touching earth, will be an excellent activity connected with the healing of this chakra.

Second (Sacral) chakra

This chakra is also physical and dense, so Hatha yoga will also work best in this case, particularly tantrically oriented one, as well as hip poses. As the second chakra is connected with our taste, the best thing will be to eat foods which will heal it like oranges, pumpkins, and mangoes.

Water is this chakra’s element. So, doing some aquatic work such as Watsu will also be an excellent treatment for healing the second chakra.

Third (Solar Plexus) chakra

This chakra is connected with the conscious, as well as with mental reasoning, and with self-image. Visual therapies, such as working with some yantras and Transformation Power Questions will be the best healing method.

As fire is this chakra’s element, sunbathing will also be good. Also, firewalking will be an excellent way to stoke this chakra. Some methods which boost our confidence can have good results. Additionally, some actual core works such as powerful yoga or some kind of breathing which is stroking the core will also be useful for this chakra, known as solar plexus chakra too.

Fourth (Heart) chakra

This is the chakra that serves as a bridge between lower, or the chakras which are more physical, and upper of more spiritual ones, and it responds very well to touches. A lot of studies prove this, in which babies thrived when nannies and nurses actually held them.

The most common and excellent way of boosting, as well as balancing this chakra, known as the heart chakra, will be through hugging. This will work when we even self-hug ourselves, or we can also use EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. Another excellent treatment will be breath work as this chakra is connected to the element of air.

Fifth (Throat) chakra

Sound healing will be one of the best methods for this chakra, as it involves two different techniques: putting the sound out, as well as taking it in.

The sound can be put out by simply reciting some mantras, as well as by chanting, or seed sounds or also our most loved song which will make us feel quite good. The sound can be taken in through some crystal bowls, and mantras, or even our most loved song.

Here are the seed sounds – the smallest mantras for each of the chakras:

1st – Lam
2nd – Vam
3rd – Ram
4th – Yam
5th – Ham
6th – Om
7th – Silence (pure consciousness)

Sixth (Brow/Third Eye) chakra

As this is, in fact, the well-known ground zero chakra for each of our dreams, as well as visualizations, visualization will be the most suitable tool which we can employ on this chakra. It can be performed inwardly or also outwardly.

The inward visualizations actually involve meditation in which we need to close our eyes, and also create some positive thoughts and world around us, feeling and seeing what we really want. It is a process which will change our psychology and even make us interact positively, as well as confidently with the world inside us, forcing some changes.

The external visualizations are done with creating some beautiful vision boards which will help us to ignite creative energies, as well as improve our life in general.

Seventh (Crown) chakra

For this chakra, the only method for healing will be meditation. In fact, it will make us enter into a condition of thoughtless, silent and pure openness.

Although the methods for healing the chakras are effective, trying some others will also be good, as we may find the right one for us, which will fit every need of our chakras.

DAVINA SKINNER: “7 Chakras And 7 Links To Your Subconscious”

The Chakras do not start and end with their description or definition — which is where many people stop with their understanding of them. To know their name and position is great but what purpose does that serve? What use is that information to you in your daily life? The Chakras are amazing, organic, Dimensional Centers of Energy and within them they hold so many secrets.

When their energy is combined, it makes up what we call the Aura, the energy field within and around the human body. It is within this energy sphere that psychics can ‘see’ and can discern many things about you that the ‘normal’ person is not consciously aware of.

Many of these things you can become more conscious of yourself and to my mind it is your subconscious mind giving you some minute signals, trying to get through to you. This is just the same and linked with how your body language works, your body language is your Chakra energy at work!

There are a great many ways that the Chakras can try to ‘get’ your attention, often by being out of balance. Again there are a whole host of symptoms that would indicate an out of balance Chakra but for the purpose of trying to keep things simple I highlight just one common signal for each of the seven Chakras. For Example;

The Base Chakra

A good indicator of how stable the Base Chakra might be is to consider what you do with your feet and legs when you sit down in certain situations: You may sit with both feet firmly placed on the floor or you may occasionally cross your legs. In and of itself, there is no great indicator here unless there tends to be a regular and repeated pattern. You may find you often cross your legs tightly, almost winding them around the chair leg, or you may fidget excessively, you may feel the need to raise your feet up off the floor and in some cases sit with your knees bent up in front of you. This can indicate a sense of insecurity which is one of the key elements of the Base Chakra.

The Sacral Chakra

You may notice you often cover this area, below the navel with your hands; this tends to be out of an instinctive need to feel protected. It can be an area that is easily prone to storing fat, in men and women and is linked with how vulnerable you feel in relationships in particular. It is an emotional power house and it is important to be able to ‘flow’ with these emotions otherwise you may encounter creativity problems not just physically but mentally too.

The Solar Plexus

This Chakra you already associate with your subconscious or inner knowing whether you realize it or not! This is after all the home of your GUT instinct. It is not for no reason we call it this. This Chakra directly links with your core spirit or energy that instinctively ‘knows’ what or who is good for you and which situations are bad. Recall a time when you had a bad feeling about someone or something and you will no doubt recall that sickening feeling in the stomach. Often things happen so quickly that we don’t stop to consider just what our reactions are about or precisely where they affect us in the body.

The Heart Chakra

This, it is no surprise is all about love. How comforting is it when you feel hurt or upset to receive a loving or caring hug from someone? It is a natural instinct to put your arms around each other and to ‘touch’ hearts. It is a comfort and is in effect two energies of the two people meeting, one giving one receiving in this instance. To watch anyone in pain tugs at your ‘heart strings’ and that is just what it is like if you could see the energy.

The Throat Chakra

This Chakra not only relates to the throat and neck area but to the organs you use in communication too, your ears, mouth and nose! It is very often associated with your ability to ‘speak your truth’. You may know someone who covers their neck and throat area regularly, either with high collars or scarves. This can indicate that a lot of what they would really like to say is left unsaid or is covered up. This can either result in resentful gossip out of earshot or a build up of ‘unsaid stuff’ that at some point bursts forth in an emotional storm!

The Third Eye Chakra

Often you will see people rub or tap this area as if trying to literally grab hold of a thought they somehow know is there but they just can’t quite get hold of. This is the intuitive Chakra center of the mind and it can easily be pulled ‘out of sync’ by the logical, rational, conscious mind we use for a large part of the day. As you may have noticed, when you let go of chasing that illusive thought and get on with an unrelated task, the inspiration or information seems to magically come from nowhere!

The Crown Chakra

Excessive worry can indicate itself here in a physical way. One of the most common is when you see people holding their head in their hands in despair or deep concern; when they ‘just don’t know what to do’ or can’t see the answer to a certain predicament. They may feel totally blocked in being able to see a way forward and keep their head looking downwards.

The majority of the instances above directly link to your body language. But when you look deeper and start to reveal more about the Chakras and their links to your mental and emotional wellbeing as well as your physical and spiritual wellbeing then you start to get a more holistic view of your true potential and beauty as a human spirit.

ALETHEIA LUNA: “80 Easy Forms Of Chakra Balancing For Mind-Body Healing”

Like everything else in life, we are energetic beings.

All minerals, plants, animals, liquids and objects are products of an endless array of cells which emit energy. And what is within each cell? Protons, neutrons and electrons, which are all composed of sub-atomic particles which are pure energy.

Therefore, everything we see in this universe is at its root energy that evolves, changes and flows. That includes us as human beings. For this reason, it is not too far-fetched to think that within our own bodies we have areas that possess more condensed energy than others.

When the energy within our bodies is too imbalanced due to bad habits, stress, unacknowledged feelings and thought patterns, we get sick and we suffer — it’s as simple as that.

This is where the importance of chakra balancing comes into play. In traditional Indian thought our bodies possess seven different energy centers that are subject to blockages according to our lifestyle habits. When our energy centers are blocked or misaligned we feel heavy, ill and emotionally imbalanced.

In fact, if you’ve come to this article chances are that you are unconsciously attracted to “cleaning” or emptying an energy blockage within your body which is preventing you from living a centered life.

The Importance of Chakra Balancing in Everyday Life

I’ve never personally liked the word “chakra” because I’ve been conditioned to associate it with quasi-science and “woo-woo” new age thought. But whether you like using the word “chakra” or perhaps “meridians” or “energy centers,” it is undeniable that we are all electric beings by nature. Simply dragging your feet across a carpet and then touching something metal will show you that.

In recent years however, I’ve come to open myself to chakra balancing, and have managed to look beyond the fog of disparagement it has been shrouded in. It’s a really refreshing feeling being proven wrong about something, and I can definitely say that learning the secrets of chakra balancing has improved the quality of my life immensely.

But don’t worry: learning how to balance your chakras is by no means some kind of “esoteric” or complicated art. It simply requires sensitivity, introspection and a dedication to your well-being; all of which I can help you with in this article.

Simply reading through each energy center below will help you to determine which of the seven chakras within you are the most “stuffy” and imbalanced. You can then read the accompanying forms of chakra balancing techniques specific to each energy center.

DEBORAH KING: “7 Tips To Buff Up Your Chakra System”

one-animated-chakras-pretty.gif

Energy medicine promotes healing by working within an individual’s personal energetic field and seeing how it interacts with the larger energy field.  We can tell what’s happening with someone by checking in on their 7 main chakras, the centers of energy that run from the base of the spine up through the top of the head.

These 7 centers, along with up to 20 smaller chakras, govern our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.  In other words, chakras hold the secrets to how you feel about yourself and your world, how you get along with others, the condition of your body, your relationship to money, whether or not weight is a problem, how you make decisions, and your spiritual advancement.

That’s a lot to ask of something most people can’t see.  But then again, we can’t see the radioactive particles released from a damaged nuclear reactor either, and yet we take seriously their capability to affect our lives.  The energy centered in the chakras has a very profound effect on our lives.

So what can you do to create and maintain healthy and balanced chakras?  Here are seven sure-fire simple steps you can take to balance your chakras:

1. Connect to Mother Earth: Take a Walk in Nature.

The first chakra is your Root Chakra and is the very foundation of physical and emotional health.  It is your basic connection to Mother Earth — the roots you plant in the soil of your being.  This is where your physical strength lies, and the psychological strength to withstand whatever you have to deal with.

A simple walk barefoot on grass or a sandy beach will do wonders to ground you.  Hug a tree, go hiking in the wilderness, or visit a local park.  You don’t have to live in the countryside or mountains to strengthen this connection with Mother Nature.  Grounding yourself will give you the experience of  “I am here, and I am safe”  and this presence is so essential to your health.  Take time out of your day to make sure you make this connection and you will automatically strengthen your Root Chakra.

2. Calm your Body and Environment with Water.

The second chakra is the seat of sensuality, sexuality, emotion, and the inner child.  It governs how we relate in groups, how we establish inner and outer boundaries, and how we find pleasure.  A common problem related to the second chakra is addition.  You may be using drugs, alcohol, pills, food, smoking, exercise, or sex as ways to avoid dealing with your emotions, to numb yourself.  The physical problems of a poorly functioning second chakra are often the kinds of things that breed shame if the health issues concern their sexuality.  One way to heal the shame is to soak for at least 20 minutes in a bath of warm water with one pound each of sea salt and baking soda.  Imagine all your guilt and shame dissolving in the bath water and being washed away as you say: “I speak the truth and reclaim my true nature.  I am pure.  I am clean.”  Water is healing, and immersing yourself in water on a regular basis is a self-nurturing habit.

3. Get Moving!

The second chakra is the seat of our self-worth — our self esteem, will power, and personal power.  It is the seat of our mental body, where we identify with our ego and our individuality.  A strong will means we know what our goals are and have an idea of what we want to do.  The power in the third chakra is our right to act, to use our will, to follow through with what we start, to meet challenges head-on, and to not be stopped by fear.  You can balance your third chakra through physical movement, especially outside in the sun in the early morning or before sunset.  Don’t get too warm if you tend to be angry or short-tempered!  Physical movement awakens and recharges your body.  You can also try T’ai Chi, Yoga, or Pilates!

4. Love a Pet!

The fourth chakra is your heart chakra and it is the center point, where you merge the strength and support of Mother Earth from below with the wisdom and guidance from above that combine to make you a compassionate human being.  A poorly functioning fourth chakra can keep you in bondage to emotional attachment.  It is through your heart chakra that you can come to feel the presence of unconditional, unlimited love — for your self, for all beings, for the world and beyond.  One of the best ways to boost your heart chakra is through giving and receiving love with a pet.  Our pets love us unconditionally and make it safe for us to learn to love again.  Do you have room in your life to adopt a dog or cat?  You can feed your heart chakra and at the same time change this animal’s life forever in a positive way.  No room or time to adopt your own?  What about visiting your local shelter or even just visiting a friend’s friendly pet and sharing some love with them?

5. Express Yourself: Use your Voice.

The fifth chakra is our center of creativity.  This chakra is where we express our choices and communicate who we are.  Because our use of sound and communication purifies our lower selves and allows us to experience the higher vibrations of spirit, we can tune up our fifth chakra by expressing ourselves more clearly and exploring our creativity.  All creativity is a way to communicate what we feel.  Use your voice and read out loud your favorite book or poem.  Write something yourself and recite it!  Sing a song — in the shower, in your car wherever!  When your fifth chakra is in balance, you can live your dreams and visions, your greater purpose.  Let yourself be who you are and give yourself a voice!

6. Visualize and Find your Inner Sight.

The sixth chakra, or “third eye”, is the center of higher intellect.  The gifts of the spirit emerge in this chakra, like clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition, and psychokinesis.  You can boost this chakra by working to rid yourself of the clutter in your mind so you can “see” more clearly.  Daily meditation is a wonderful way to get rid of old beliefs and thought patterns that are holding you back.  When you have awakened the sixth chakra, you are in touch with inspiration, insight, wisdom, and vision.

7. Invite the Divine!

The seventh chakra, or crown chakra, connects us to spirit, our higher power, and the universe.  It lights up our consciousness. When our crown chakra is open, our perception is clearer, broader, and we are allowed to not only see our daily patterns, but also the deep metaphysical patterns of our lives.  Like the sixth chakra, meditation is a powerful tool to boosting this chakra.  Perhaps prayer or communion with nature will assist you as well.  Ask your own higher wisdom for guidance and signs that you are on the right path, and make time for yourself to listen for internal messages regarding purpose and direction.  Visualize positive and peaceful outcomes.  The truth that emerges will open the door for you to greater levels of connection.

Your chakras are all interconnected.  They embrace you as a whole person.  As you do the inner work of clearing and releasing past traumas, negativity and outmoded belief systems, you will lighten the load of your chakras.  Your energy will move into greater balance, and as a result, you will feel better.  So why not take the initiative and seek out ways to better balance your chakras?
