Welcome to Day 18 of Chakra Vitality. I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s video. How are you finding the 3rd Eye technique? Can you feel the difference it makes to your clarity of thinking by removing tension in your eyebrow area?
Today we’re moving on to the visualisation and intention aspects of this energy centre. Here’s today’s MP3 audio.
In fact, intention is one of the most important factors when it comes to working with the aspects of your life governed by your 3rd Eye. We often unconsciously shut down these energies, due to fear or past experiences.
And if we are coming from a place of self-interest and ego-based thinking, then it’s very hard (and not a great idea!) to be able to access the deeper wisdom that comes from working with our intuitive energies.
Many people who study meditation do so in order to be able to leap into 3rd Eye level insights. I have met many students who successfully use meditation and mindfulness techniques to access this wisdom. But without firm foundations in the previous energy centres, it can make you feel unstable and ungrounded. It can even create a form of escapism and may be used to avoid facing what is ‘real’, here and now.
That’s why the Chakra Vitality routine takes us step by step through gently clearing and rebalancing the base, sacral, solar plexus, heart and throat chakras, before we enter the territory of the 3rd Eye.
Without firm foundations, the mountain will fall at the first storm. And our energy systems are no different.
What would be the point of being able to access your inner wisdom if, for example, you aren’t able to speak your truth (throat chakra) with compassion (heart chakra), without needing to control others (solar plexus), without knowing how it might impact others (sacral chakra) and without feeling safe and secure (base chakra).
If at this stage you feel the need to go back and do some more work on the previous energy centres, before you move ahead, that’s absolutly fine. Trust your instincts to tell you what you need. Be gentle with yourself!
I really hope you are enjoying your 21 Day Chakra Vitality course so far.
Today we’re talking about the importance of laying firm foundations, as you gently rebalance, clear out and reconnect with your body’s energy centres:
I’d love to hear how you’re getting on.
