In this practice, we will be connecting ideas and thoughts with bodily sensations. I’ll walk you through all of it. Follow along and do what works for you.
What I would love for you to do is to sit with your feet on the floor. So, if you can have your feet on the ground, that will help with the intention of this meditation, which is to really connect with the earth.
For this meditation, we're going to breathe in through the nose, and we're going to breathe out through the nose, which we normally don't do. But this is the intention is to increase the energy and to build this sense of inner world. When we breathe out through the mouth, the intention is to let go and surrender it all and allow liberation. But when we breathe out through the nose, we're saying, we're going to build here, so it's different.
I'm going to guide you, we're going to do each of the chakras, but we're going to talk about a quality in the chakras—there's one specific quality I want us to...
Our chakra energy system can be separated into three parts.
The first four chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, and heart) represent the past and hold the memory of past experiences, from childhood and in utero, and the unprocessed traumas we have gone through even as adults. So in order to heal the past, we must sink into ourselves, make direct contact with our inner landscape, and explore what lives in us at the cellular & energetic levels. The first four chakras, when healthy, allow us to process and transform at a rapid pace. Experiences that relate to our sense of safety, belonging, ability to take action, and sense of identity move through us and resolve without interruption. As the expression of who we are to the world, these four chakras are supposed to change, transform, and expand over and over again. So healing is not a one-time thing. It is an ongoing journey that always brings us more into the integration of who we truly are. One should always start here on...
Stop. Right here. Right now.
Take a deep breath in through your nose, and let it out your mouth.
Continue. For a moment.
Stop going so fast. Just stop.
Right here. Right now.
Your heart knows. You are here.
Remember who you are. In your heart.
Stop. Pause. Breathe.
Come home. Be in you.
You are here. Now. How beautiful you are.
You are here in your heart.
Feel. This moment. Your being. You.
You. Are. Here. Now. Breathe.
This. Now. Is more important than anything you were doing.
Come back now. Be home.
In the centre of your chest.
Everything is there. Nothing is missing.
Breathe. Be here. Be home.
In your heart.
There is no conflict a few conscious breaths can’t lighten.
Try this: Breathe in through the nose, reach for the in breath from deep inside your lower belly or pull it up from the base of your spine, allowing your entire torso to inhale, filling up one chakra at a time with more oxygen than normal. Then hold your breath for one count at the top. Then breathe out through the mouth, constrict the throat slightly making the ocean sound “ha”, drop your jaw, soften your neck and mouth, releasing every tension in your face, exhaling out every last bit of air.
Three breaths like this will allow you to take a mental step back, creating more room for perspective and creativity.
Breathe like this for 3 minutes you will tap into your parasympathetic system and tell your body it is safe and it can heal.
Do it for 10 minutes and you will build the ground for intuition and wisdom to reveal themselves to your awareness.
Breathe like this multiple time...
