Today I'd like to give you a simple visualization exercise for keeping your energy system full of pure energy and working well. In a previous blog post, I mentioned the 7 energy centers, or chakras, in the body. The chakras act as energy tanks. Stress and negativity drain them. Regularly putting energy back in keeps your mind sharp, your emotions stable, and your body healthy. Therefore, chakra maintenance is a fundamental step for making a change in your life. In fact, the issues you face are associated with either too much or too little energy in one or more of your chakras. Handling them means taking care of your chakras.
Each chakra resonates with a different color, so it needs to be filled with energy of that color. That's why visualization works so well. You can visualize colored light going to each chakra and filling it, and it will. Often I guide this visualization so that the light goes through the fingertips. Your hands, the points in the center of your palm and your fingertips especially, are very sensitive to the flow of energy.
To make the visualization even more powerful, I use these chakra images that I had created. Their energy is the same as the energy of the chakra they represent; the colors, lines, and symbols of the image give them a certain vibration that make it this way. So these images carry, attract, and reflect the energy of each chakra.
For the visualization, just imagine these 7 symbols on your fingertips. As soon as you do, imagine light the color of that image zapping into your fingertips and going to each chakra. Breathe comfortably and naturally with your back and neck straight when you do this. Do each chakra one at a time to give each one your focus and attention. It doesn't take long. Your chakras can fill up almost immediately with this method.
This is the order and fingers I recommend:
1. Right pinky – deep red – first chakra
2. Right ring ringer – bright red-orange – second chakra
3. Right middle finger – orange – third chakra
4. Right index finger – golden yellow – fourth chakra
5. Right thumb – green-blue – fifth chakra
6. Left index finger – indigo – sixth chakra
7. Left thumb – violet – seventh chakra
As it fills with energy, each chakra feels hot. Once all seven are filled, the body's energy system is activated and the electromagnetic field our body generates becomes perfect and healthy. This field, which has a toroidal shape, acts like a protective shield of positivity and clarity, happiness and joy, which keeps your outlook strong and prevents negative information from draining your chakras. If you fight with, have hatred for, or become jealous of others, however, you can distort your electromagnetic field and put your chakras out of balance. Your energy system is full and perfect when you love others. Love, therefore, is an essential ingredient for healthy chakras, a healthy body, a healthy mind, a healthy life, and a healthy world.
