This practice allows you to access the wisdom held in your chakra energy chttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifenters. You are lending your voice to the center you connect with so you can connect and communicate with it in a direct way, I more you are able to relax and surrender to the experience the easier it is to access the wisdom of your chakras coming through in their unique voice.
Set aside 15-30 minutes for this practice. Make sure the phone is off and that you won't be disturbed. This can be done alone or with a partner. If done alone have your journal nearby so you can take notes. You may also choose to record the experience. If done with a partner, only one person speaks and the other acts as a witness. They may take notes if that feels appropriate to both parties. The witness should not interrupt the speaker while the chakra is talking.
Begin with a Heart Salutation directing your attention to the chakra you are going to connect with. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position. Take slow, gentle, relaxing breaths into your belly. Relax deeply for about several minutes. As your exhale, breath out any tension you are holding. As you inhale, breathe in life force energy (pnana/chi/ki) and feel your body being energized.
When you are relaxed focus your attention on the chakra you fell called to connect with. Place your hands over the area related to that particular chakra. Breathe into this chakra and begin to tune into this part of your body and the energy of this chakra. Invite it you speak through you, saying, ( the name of the chakra) Heart, I desire to receive your wisdom and invite you to speak to me through my voice.
Then allow the chakra to speak to you, in the first person, "I Heart want to share that I have been feeling ignored lately. Crystal has been… I would like.... It would be helpful if…" Continue to tune in for 5-10 minutes. There may be phases as the information is accessed. Stay present with the process until it feels complete.
End with a Heart Salutation.
