Check In with Your Chakras – Part Two
Find 15 minutes of a quiet, uninterrupted space and time. Set a timer for 15 minutes. You might want to make available a way to record your experiences at the end of the exercise, such as a pad and pencil or audio recorder. Once in your space, close your eyes. This automatically places you in a relaxing, alpha state of brain waves. Take several deep relaxing “belly” breaths.
Starting with the root Chakra, dialogue with this Chakra – ask it to tell you in a minute or less, what it needs from you. Pay attention and be neutral – tell yourself that you will remember its words. Keep an open mind if the Chakra tells you something that doesn’t match your expectations of this Chakra. After the Root Chakra has told you what it needs, thank it, tell it that you love it and appreciate it as part of your energy system.
Dialogue with each Chakra in the following order – Sacral/Solar Plexus/Heart/Throat/3rd Eye/ Crown and repeat the process of asking, paying attention, and expressing gratitude.
When finished with this process, place one hand under your tailbone and the other on top of your head. It doesn’t matter which hand goes where – do whatever seems comfortable. Imagine there is a figure “8” (infinity sign ∞) that is forming between your two hands. Notice what you notice – thank your Chakras for working together to balance your body, mind, and spirit. When it seems right, remove your hand from this position and enjoy the quiet until your timer goes off. Take a few extra minutes to record your experiences.
Repeat the Check In with Your Chakras exercise frequently. Your seven major Chakras are your team, playing together in your game of life. Get to know your team members and what each needs to optimize their performance.
