Cleansing & Balancing the Charkas

Written by Christin Snyder

Continued from page 1

As you breathe in say in your mind “I allowrepparttar light to heal, cleanse and balance““. Onrepparttar 122312 exhale say “I release all that is not for my highest good““. Relax and allowrepparttar 122313 light to move down torepparttar 122314 third eye (betweenrepparttar 122315 eyebrows) when it is ready, then repeatrepparttar 122316 breath and mantra on bothrepparttar 122317 inhale andrepparttar 122318 exhale.

Continue this process slowly and let it flow naturally allrepparttar 122319 way down your chakra system until it reachesrepparttar 122320 soles ofrepparttar 122321 feet. When it has reachedrepparttar 122322 soles ofrepparttar 122323 feet, envision a ball of energy from inrepparttar 122324 Earth rising up slowly intorepparttar 122325 soles of your feet. Allow this energy to carry away any residual energies that need to be cleansed and take them back intorepparttar 122326 Earth for reprocessing/healing.

As you continue to relax say a prayer of gratitude. Take a few moments to sincerely reflect on all of your life’s blessings and to show appreciation to Spirit for allrepparttar 122327 abundance that is housed within you. The important thing to remember is that you are a channel allowing these powerful energies to flow through you. You don't have to have any special talent or abilities to benefit from this healing as “you” are not doing it, but allowing Spirit/God to do this through you. It is an exercise of “allowing”

Another variation others enjoy, is to do this meditation while inrepparttar 122328 shower. As you feelrepparttar 122329 water washing over you, you can envision your energy field also being cleansed and balanced. The water as it goes downrepparttar 122330 drain, carries away all negativity and extra energy.

For grounding and healing also participate in activities that put you in direct contact withrepparttar 122331 Earth, walk barefoot inrepparttar 122332 grass, sit with your back against a tree, plant a garden, (this is healing to your Earth mother as well) anything that puts you in contact with nature is deeply rejuvenating and healing.

Two Types of Spirituality ... Faith and Knowledge

--- Opening Your Mind ---

As part of our being, we all haverepparttar need to believe in something greater than ourselves. There is a part of us that "has to belong." Many people fall deeply into organized religion because it providesrepparttar 122311 camaraderie and a focal point for their community as well as a basis forrepparttar 122312 moral code ofrepparttar 122313 community. These, in addition torepparttar 122314 faith-based answers torepparttar 122315 "big questions", provide a comfort zone and a foundation for many. However, by opening one's mind and examiningrepparttar 122316 many facets behind these "big questions", one can develop and acquirerepparttar 122317 true answers within one's own context.

What isrepparttar 122318 key? Context-free rationalization. Of course, "context-free" is a little strong as we must all have a context, or a point of reference, that we can use to compare information and apply our rules and belief systems. However, open experience and vast knowledge can provide us with multiple contexts that we can use to devise a wider view of a particular piece of information. This wider view is what is called an "open mind". The open mind has no safety zone as it is always risking it's "comfort zones" in search of new information and new ways of examining situations and other beings.

--- What's next? ---

Acquiring this knowledge and ability to move across many contexts is not a simple task as it requiresrepparttar 122319 ability to acquire, accept, and process information outside of our current context. It is a "chicken orrepparttar 122320 egg" situation; however, it is a decision that we make as humans to initiate such a move.

By opening our minds and perceptions, we allow our conscious mindsrepparttar 122321 ability to communicate more freely with our subconscious minds. In doing so,repparttar 122322 vast amounts of information available inrepparttar 122323 collective unconscious, "The Grid", "The Universal Library" is available to us, simply by "looking." Considerrepparttar 122324 idea of openingrepparttar 122325 mind as a primer for what follows once you are able to use your mind to its fullest capabilities and acquire immeasurable knowledge from all entities acrossrepparttar 122326 Universe and throughout time.

This isrepparttar 122327 true meaning of spirituality. The knowledge and desire to exist with and withinrepparttar 122328 Universal essence. To accept and acquire knowledge that is freely available to you through time and space. Finally,repparttar 122329 knowledge to use this information in a way that is beneficial to you, as protecting and projecting yourself, you are providing a pathway for others andrepparttar 122330 betterment of your communities. --- Aboutrepparttar 122331 Author ---
