Meditation Instructions and Chakra Breakdown
Meditation Instructions and Chakra Breakdown
Instructions for Meditative Breathing
The meditation is 19 minutes long. pick two days a week, and a time on those two days to do the meditation. it works better if you do the meditation two days a week on a regular schedule. you are trying to turn meditation into a habit. so, the same time and day every week helps in making meditation a habit. you only need to do the meditation two days a week however if you want to do it more you can.
What you will develop: the longer you do the meditation the breath will automatically kick in when you become stressed. you'll know how to breathe in order to calm down and the breath refocuses your attention and energy and helps your body to release the stress you are under. again, making the meditation a habit will then form a habit in you and the breath will be something that you start to unconsciously do when you become stressed.
The breath can become a thing of comfort, knowing that you can breathe through any difficulty you may have, it also clears your mind helps you to stay focused on whatever task you are doing, it can also act as a tool of relaxation to help you clear your mind before you sleep. meditation has a lot of really great benefits I meditate all the time it helps me work, it helps me relax and it helps me calm down if I get overwhelmed. I've made meditation a habit and I reap the benefits of that habit all the time. meditation is something that helps you connect with yourself to your higher consciousness.
I really enjoy meditating and I look forward to it. I hope you do too. :)
The Pond Meditation Instructions
The Pond meditation is a visualization meditation.
The meditation is 20 minutes long.
The Meditation is a pond and waterfall in the middle of the forest. This is a meditation that is for recharging and clearing your energy and emotions. It is literally like a mini-vacation. You can do this meditation whenever you want as many times as you want.
Chakra Meditation Instructions
Read the chakra documents so you understand all aspects of the chakra.
The Chakra breakdown read it so you have an understanding of the chakra before you do the meditation.
Do the meditation once a week. Pick a day and time every week to do the meditation so build the habit of meditation.
You will need up to an hour and a half. the meditation can be very emotional. it may cause you to be uncomfortable but that will only be the case in the beginning.
When you start doing it, you'll feel a physical sensation in your body that will happen the first few times until you've adjusted to the feeling and energy.
When you do the meditation do it all the way through do not start it and then stop it. if you do not do it all the way through you will throw your chakra out of balance and the chakra that you cleaned up will just go back to being out of balance again so do it all the way thru from start to finish.
It is best to do it about an hour or so before bed, we have 4 bodies, a physical body, an energetic body, a vibrational body, and the chakric body( the chakra) when you do the meditation the bodies have to catch up and align it can be really uncomfortable, if you do the meditation before bed you won't feel the bodies aligning. it's also good for processing the stuff you worked on in the meditation, whatever core emotions and experiences associated with the chakra, some stuff is harder to process than others so it is just easier to process while sleeping. you should wake up the next day feeling aligned and balanced.
It may take a few weeks before you feel balanced out. I do promise if you do the meditation, you'll feel better and will feel more balanced after the process. it's good to do it as maintenance once a week or once every few weeks. I do it once a week. the meditation is 48 minutes long.
Each chakra is a five-minute clip so if you need to work one chakra more than once you can just hit repeat on that one chakra clip.
Order of Meditation
I would like to explain what the chakra are and how they work.
the chakra are pools of spiraling energy that flows through your body. life is messy and those energies tend to get blocked by emotion, so the chakra energies become blocked and can not flow.
If we open the chakras, the energy flows then energy becomes balanced.
If you want a balanced life you must first find balance within yourself, this then will bring balance into your life.
there are 7 chakras that go up through the body.
each pool of energy has a purpose and can be blocked by a specific kind of emotional muck.
opening the chakra is an intense experience once you start you cannot stop until all the chakra is open and flowing freely.
now like you to focus on your chakra we will go through them one by one focusing on opening each chakra individually.
I want to open up with some information that you will find helpful, I am going to explain the chakra before we do the meditations, so you know what to focus on.
The chakra is a sacred element in Hindu tradition. For thousands of years, people have been using chakra as a way to relate to themselves and the universe.
On the body, there are seven points to the chakra. each point represents the place where the chakra is and how it relates to us, not just on a physical level but a spiritual one as well.
Chakra is an energy channel in which the energy of the chakra is connected to one another and the universe. the chakra also carries life force. With awaken chakra people become aware of their extrasensory function.
The chakra is broken up into two categories; the upper chakra moves in a clockwise motion
and the lower chakra moves in a counterclockwise motion.
It is said that all the upper chakra is where the psychic abilities and kundalini energy are stored.
The upper chakra is basically your spiritual connection to the universe as opposed to the lower chakra being connected to the body and the earth.
If the chakra energy is flowing right, the body and spirit flow completely and are both healthy.
It is when the chakra is out of balance you have such symptoms as eating disorders, isolation, depression, insecurity, and co-dependence.
