Chakras: Clearing, Aligning,and Enhancing
When I started working with clearing, aligning, and enhancing my energy centers, I researched what chakras were and how they related to me personally. I will give a review of what I learned. The Sanskrit word chakra literally translates to “wheel” or “disk.” This term refers to wheels of energy through the body. Seven main chakras align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. There are more than seven chakras, but we will only be working with the main seven. To visualize a chakra in your body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. We visually step into the zero point fields to begin all our meditations. This invisible energy, called Praná, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive.
It is important to address the main chakras located in our physical bodies because these swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. Since everything is energy, it’s essential that our seven main chakras stay open, aligned, and fluid. If there is a blockage, energy cannot flow. Think of something as simple as your kitchen sink drain and if you allow too many food items to go down the drain, it will back up with water and stagnate, and eventually bacteria and mold will grow. So it is with our bodies and chakras. The awareness that our minds, bodies, souls, and spirits are intimately connected can support our balance of these sacred wheels and further enhance our overall health and well-being.
I’m going to list several ways to connect to these energy portals. As you will see, I use several in my clearing and aligning meditations posted in my book called “Egyptian Numerology; Emergence Into the Fifth Dimension.”
The more we can associate with these centers and learn to vibrate with them, the closer we are to ultimate health, beauty, and power. All chakras resonate to a variety of stimuli: numbers, sounds, scents, colors, animal medicine, affirmations, universal truths, angels, and more. These stimuli can be used to increase and enhance the principles that relate to each chakra. In my book, I have listed a few areas that I use and you are welcome to add to this list. It isn’t necessary to use all these methods to enhance your meditation by increasing your vibratory rate; it’s more likely you start with one and work your way up. My intention is to give you ample examples of assets available because I realize we are intricate human beings and not all of us respond in the same way. Some of us have sensitivities to one or more of these connections, and this can give you a clue as to which ones will facilitate a deep resonator with the desired frequency. These methods are to intensify your experience because it is a known fact that our senses can be used to build extreme heights in visualizations and manifestation. So be sure to experiment and play with these conductors and find the right fit for you.
Vibrations, whether through tones, sounds, or colors, enter through the chakras. They balance the flow of energy within the chakras, and this balanced vibration is then transmitted into the vertebrae of the spine. The vertebrae are extremely strong sound resonators, and they pick up the sound vibrations and transfer them along the nerve pathways to the organs and tissues.
The song “Do-Re-Mi,” from the movie “The Sound of Music”, includes these words: “Doe, a deer, a female deer; Ray, a drop of golden sun; Me, a name I call myself …” This is a perfect scale to balance your chakras. Singing this song a few times a day will help align these centers.
We can learn to unite all we know about frequencies and use them to enhance our meditations by adding intentions, feelings, and visualizations. For instance, if you wanted to set the intention of the first chakra, which is “We are all one,” you can ignite the verbal vibration using sound along with the visual color red, invoking the vibration of both sound and color. Continue commanding your emotional fires to spark, multiply, and expand throughout your body (the element of earth) by using as many tools as possible, which will allow you to ground the universal truth and make it yours.
It’s important to know that when you are working with energy, female energy spins counter-clockwise and male energy spins clockwise. When you are visualizing an energy wheel, this can prove to be helpful. I also use this guide when I am doing healing sessions on others and balancing their energy centers. If a person’s energy is spinning the wrong way, I can gently guide it back to its natural spin.
I also use the four elements in my meditations—earth, sky, water, and fire—to connect with our planet Earth. I borrowed the sun symbols from the Zia Native American Indians. They are an indigenous tribe centered at the Zia Pueblo, an Indian reservation in New Mexico, in the United States. I imagine the sun symbol as a full circle in the middle and four rays reaching out toward the north, east, south, and west. I have incorporated our elements in the meditation, and a deeper description of this practice is explained in a chapter in my book.
It is important to acknowledge that the Egyptians were an extremely advanced culture, and their studies included the power of the spoken word, numerology, astrology, sound, elements, color, seasons, planets, and so on. They were Masters at accomplishment, and this took practice. They had priests and teachers who had studied these areas for lifetimes. We have many resources at our disposal these days; I recommend getting involved in what resonates with you. I believe that if a person studies only one of these areas in depth, he or she will come to respect life to an extent I can only dream of.
The one section I will advance upon will be the animal totems since this one area will definitely differ for each individual. I call an animal that visits me, whether alive or in spirit, “Animal Medicine” because I believe that the characteristics of each animal hold value and lessons; I am honored to be a witness to its magic. Because I can use an animal’s “magic” as medicine to heal my body, heart, mind, and spirit, it is strong medicine to behold the sacredness of our animal kingdom.
I will explore animal medicine in a separate segment. This area could take some time, and I would ask you to be patient and allow your animal to come to you. In the meantime, you can borrow mine. I have listed them within the meditations in my book. It will give you an idea of what it feels like to add an animal spirit guide to assist you in the clearing, aligning, and enhancing of your energy centers.
