• Chakra Clearing – Re-energize and Balance Yourself in Twenty Minutes

    Chakra clearing paves the way to opening your creative energy. Learn how to easily clear up what may be blocking you from success. Re-energize and balance yourself in twenty minutes.

    I want to share with you a process that will clear your Chakras allowing you to get the most out of any Chakra based meditation you may be doing.

    I discovered this technique a while back and was grateful I did. It gave me clarity about which of my Chakras needed attention. That information allowed me to work on the areas in my life that were blocked.

    Let’s Start with some basic background information. The word Chakra means vortex or wheel. Chakras are energy centers in our body. There are seven main Chakras in the body. They are lined up from the base of the spine to the top of your head. Each Chakra adjusts different aspects of your personality. They each have different tasks. By Chakra clearing you can give your whole entire energy system a boost.

    Breakdown of Each Chakra

    First Chakra: Color: Red The base or root Chakra located at the base of the spine. Responsible for basic survival needs, groundedness, sexuality and strength.

    Second Chakra: Color: Orange the Womb/Spleen Chakra is located below the navel. Responsible for: creativity, intimacy and warmth

    Third Chakra color: Yellow The Solar Plexus Chakra located above the navel. Responsible for:
    confidence, power and learning.

    Fourth Chakra Color: Green Heart Chakra located in the middle of the chest. Responsible for: love, healing, unity, empathy and service.

    Fifth Chakra Color: Sky Blue Throat Chakra located at the throat. Responsible for: communication,
    creativity and expression.

    Sixth Chakra Color: Indigo or White Third eye Chakra located between the eyebrows just above the bridge of the nose. Responsible for: Psychic abilities and higher consciousness.

    Seventh Chakra Color: Purple Crown Chakra located at the top of the head. Responsible for: spirit and higher self.

    Clearing, Strengthening and Balancing Your Chakras.

    Lie on your back. You can do this your self or have a friend perform the technique. First shake your hands to clear the energy. Then take your hands, open and palms down one on top of the other and place them over the first Chakra and start to circle it counterclockwise about 3 to 4 inches above the Chakra. To determine which is counterclockwise imagine a clock lying face up on your navel.

    *You can use one hand if you like, then use the left to clear and the right to sooth.

    Make sure you or your friend make slow counterclockwise circles over the Chakra. Do this for approximately one to two minutes. Then shake off your hands to clear the energy and circle clockwise for half as long as the counterclockwise direction.
    Repeat this with each Chakra. If you are a man and Chakra clearing everything is the same expect for the crown Chakra. With that Chakra you would start clockwise to clear the Chakra and then counterclockwise to sooth it.

    The Benefits

    When doing this process you will notice that the counterclockwise brings up toxic energies moving these out of the body. The clockwise portion is very important as it completes the process by soothing the Chakra then stabilizing it.

    You may notice headaches or a stomach ache when you are Chakra clearing; this means you are accomplishing the goal and getting rid of any clogged energy. After you have stopped and shake your hands then start in the clockwise direction this will sooth that Chakra and soon your headache or stomachache ache will disappear.

    Use Chakra clearing daily or weekly. You can use it as often as you feel necessary based on your mood.

    At the first start of this process you may find that one or two Chakras need more attention, if that is the case you may want to clear those everyday until you notice a difference in your energy. Then once you feel those Chakras have been cleared you can switch to once a week.

    When I first started with this technique I noticed right away which Chakras needed attention. Allowing for the realization of which areas in my life I needed to work on.

    Since each Chakra has its own personality traits it’s responsible for, it is easy to see where you will need to focus in order to feel balance and energized again. Take a look at the specific areas that are causing you the most discomfort when you start the Chakra clearing.

    I noticed that my heart Chakra needed some attention. I then started to look at why I may have a blocked heart Chakra and discovered I needed to forgive myself for some past mistakes that I had made.

    Chakra clearing is one of the many useful tools I have found to give me that peaceful centered feeling. I hope you enjoy the discovery of your energy centers and how relevant they are to a well balanced healthy life style.

    Namaste.

    How to Balance Your Chakra

  • “By G. Jeffrey MacDonald, Special to USA TODAY
    With humanity coming up fast on 2012, publishers are helping readers gear up and count down to this mysterious — some even call it apocalyptic — date that ancient Mayan societies were anticipating thousands of years ago.

    Since November, at least three new books on 2012 have arrived in mainstream bookstores. A fourth is due this fall. Each arrives in the wake of the 2006 success of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, which has been selling thousands of copies a month since its release in May and counts more than 40,000 in print. The books also build on popular interest in the Maya, fueled in part by Mel Gibson’s December 2006 film about Mayan civilization, Apocalpyto.

    Authors disagree about what humankind should expect on Dec. 21, 2012, when the Maya’s “Long Count” calendar marks the end of a 5,126-year era.

    Journalist Lawrence Joseph forecasts widespread catastrophe in Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation Into Civilization’s End. Spiritual healer Andrew Smith predicts a restoration of a “true balance between Divine Feminine and Masculine” in The Revolution of 2012: Vol. 1, The Preparation. In 2012, Daniel Pinchbeck anticipates a “change in the nature of consciousness,” assisted by indigenous insights and psychedelic drug use.

    The buildup to 2012 echoes excitement and fear expressed on the eve of the new millennium, popularly known as Y2K, though on a smaller scale, says Lynn Garrett, senior religion editor at Publishers Weekly. She says publishers seem to be courting readers who believe humanity is creating its own ecological disasters and desperately needs ancient indigenous wisdom.

    “The convergence I see here is the apocalyptic expectations, if you will, along with the fact that the environment is in the front of many people’s minds these days,” Garrett says. “Part of the appeal of these earth religions is that notion that we need to reconnect with the Earth in order to save ourselves.”

    But scholars are bristling at attempts to link the ancient Maya with trends in contemporary spirituality. Maya civilization, known for advanced writing, mathematics and astronomy, flourished for centuries in Mesoamerica, especially between A.D. 300 and 900. Its Long Count calendar, which was discontinued under Spanish colonization, tracks more than 5,000 years, then resets at year zero.

    “For the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make it to the end of a whole cycle,” says Sandra Noble, executive director of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies in Crystal River, Fla. To render Dec. 21, 2012, as a doomsday or moment of cosmic shifting, she says, is “a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in.”

    Part of the 2012 mystique stems from the stars. On the winter solstice in 2012, the sun will be aligned with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years. This means that “whatever energy typically streams to Earth from the center of the Milky Way will indeed be disrupted on 12/21/12 at 11:11 p.m. Universal Time,” Joseph writes.

    But scholars doubt the ancient Maya extrapolated great meaning from anticipating the alignment — if they were even aware of what the configuration would be.

    Astronomers generally agree that “it would be impossible the Maya themselves would have known that,” says Susan Milbrath, a Maya archaeoastronomer and a curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History. What’s more, she says, “we have no record or knowledge that they would think the world would come to an end at that point.”

    University of Florida anthropologist Susan Gillespie says the 2012 phenomenon comes “from media and from other people making use of the Maya past to fulfill agendas that are really their own.””
