How to Work with Chakras
It is finest to work with only one level of one body of chakras at one time. The most effective method is to begin at the physical level of the physical body; firstly, it is needed to go forward to the emotional of the physical, the mental, etc. staying, until one has finished all seven levels of the physical body. Having concluded work on the physical body, it is advised to move on to the emotional, mental and so on, through all the bodies.
It is best to work on only one body at one time, because one may become too baffled, spacey or bewildered, performing too many bodies at once.
Cleansing and Opening Chakras
1. With one's hand, it is best to find the location of the chakra or chakras in the body. Directions needs to be followed, looking at the areas portrayed in picture. Commonly, the energy of the chakras will feel different from that of the adjoining areas.
2. The chakra spot needs to be massaged gently. This helps open it and release early blocks. If there is much pain, it is best advised not to massage, instead, it is needed to hold the hand over the chakra and send energy into it. The extra energy helps liberate the block. Further assistance in release can be accomplished by imagining the energy going from one's hands into the chakra; energy follows imagination. After a few moments, the chakra must be released. It is however advised not to press hard on the xiphoid process, as it can be injured easily.
3. Either one needs to lie down or sit comfortably. It is needed to let oneself go wholly and allow thoughts or feelings come to oneself. When energy is ejected from the chakra, information comes to one's consciousness; it may be a strong message, a memory of an accident, or an attitude. One must let his/her mind ramble. The time essential for these messages to come through, alters from a few moments to as much as 15 or 30 minutes. One can do what feels comfortable to them, but never can they stop the method too soon. If nothing comes and one feels comfortable with letting it go, it is absolutely perfect; but if one is restless, uncomfortable or irritable, one perhaps should quit. It is advised to remember that the blocks may have existed for a long time and one might or might not desire to re-block or hold things back. When the purification is compl
eted, one will mostly experience a liberation of energy and feel rejuvenated and stimulated.
In the beginning, it is best to try to jet the energy come directly to one's chakras, forbearing from spinning the chakras in both directions. The energy must be allowed to simply come out in a direct fashion, until the area feels free and clear. If one wishes, in later work, one can spin one's chakras so that the energy going over the top of the chakra goes to the left side (clockwise from the outside). As long as the energy gushes or twirls away from the body, one will be in a superior emotional or spiritual level. But if the energy twirls back into the body, it can cause negative or gloomy feelings. Sometimes, one might desire to twirl energy over the top of he chakra to the right side of the body (counterclockwise from the outside), putting one in touch with the mental or high mental vibrations for as long as the energy diversifies away from the body (twirling back into the body it will again cause gloomy attitudes and negative sensings).
It is advised to experiment with the flow of one's own chakras. In the start, it will be a little complicated to be conscious of direction, but with patience, one will develop greater understanding and more command over one's life.
People generally sit or stand in a fashion that blocks substantial extra chakra flow. One can, for example, have problem dealing with one's "I Amness" and feeling superior about oneself, in which case one may round one's shoulders or bend one's body to shut off those feelings. Another probability is that one can curve in one's chest as a way of blockading the several chakras on the breastbone and compromise one's will to live (level five of the physical body). Then, one needs to observe one's posture. If he/she senses that by the way one carries oneself, one is blockading the chakras, it is advised to work on those particular chakras to find out what thoughts or feelings they contain, one could gain much perceptiveness into one's attitude towards one's own self.
Awareness of position and change, achings, hurts, or tensions can all be tiny signals that something is going awry with the energy pattern in some place in the body. It is always the chakras of those areas that will be influenced. Individuals can shut them off subconsciously through fear, turning away from things, or holding back. By doing so, one can pull the energy into the body, causing heaviness, gloominess, or obstructed muscles.
When one feels beaming and jubilant, the energy flows out, radiating from the bodies and opening one's chakras. During a specifically joyous, happy, up-time, energy in blocked areas inclines to liberate; thus several days later, one finds oneself miserable, dispirited and in need of dealing with the released energy. But if one goes with it, works with it and allows it to continue the purification, it should not be long until one is feeling quite elated again.
It is recommended to develop the fifth eye before working with the third eye, as anything the third eye can do to the fifth eye, can perform better. The threat in working powerfully with the third eye first is that it is so allied with ego, it may nurture spiritual conceit. The fifth eye aids developing the bigger picture beyond the individual picture. It is also advocated to develop the "will to live" heart chakra, firstly, in order to heighten heart potency. Developing the compassionate heart chakra first might lead to turning exceedingly compassionate and exhausted; it is not beneficial to give too much from a heart chakra, until the power is built from inside and one learns to channelise energy through it.
Front Chakras versus Back Chakras
The primary concern is with the spinal chakras, opening in the front rather than in the back. Unless the front areas are purified and vitalised, energy from the spine will be blocked; as the front chakras open, the nadis or connections from the front chakras to the spinal openings mechanically open up. In addition, working on the spinal openings may bring an extravagant interest in phenomena, injurious to a person's development, exciting possibly, but not of principal importance in growth.
Opening up Body Energy
Firstly, one must stand in the centre of the room. It is advised to get the feeling of letting one's energy go out from the entire body to fill the whole room, even the corners. This is a method of releasing energy from and balancing the chakras. Performing this, toughens up the aura. One can hold back other people's energies and possibly then become conscious from the outer edge of one's aura about how others feel or think, as opposed to having the energy come in and influence the body. In addition, as the aura is reinforced, one's outgoing energies are toughened and customised by the general energy in one's own aura and will not affect others as profoundly.
Sending and Receiving Energy
Chakras are energy broadcasting and receiving stations. One transmits energies, turning it into messages or feelings for other people.
But, one is incessantly receiving from others, sometimes imperceptibly or subconsciously, and at other times in a very alert state. More often than not, the energy of others is an encroachment on one's own energy designs and may leave one contemplating on possessing moods, thoughts, feelings to work out, which are not essentially one's own; or the interfering energies may just slow one down. One might also think that he/she has an ailment, ache or tension.
Exercise is pretty important in helping to level the energy passing through the body. Several problems work themselves out just by physical exercises. Yoga is an especially good form of exercise to maintain better chakra condition. Free-form dance is also extremely helpful; as one dances, one accentuates various movements of the body, liberating blocked energy. Rest is also essential, allowing the system to balance energies and make its own modifications; often if an individual just leaves the body alone for a while, allow it take rest, it does much to mend itself and free choked up areas.
