What’s the deal with chakras? For some people they are as tangible a part of their body as a hand or foot. For others they are a strange Eastern concept, as fanciful as fairies, vaguely having something to do with yoga. For many years I was in the second category, but along the way, as I came to understand more about energy and health, I set off in search of my chakras.

There are many helpful books on the subjects, but I’ll give you Cliff-notes version here. “Chakra” comes from the Sanskrit meaning “wheel, ” used in yoga to describe energy centers of the human body. Seven main chakras run from the groin to the top of the head. Colors, vibrational frequencies, and organ systems are associated with them in Eastern medicine. Balanced, clean chakras are necessary for optimal health. The chakras also serve as communication paths for connection to the Divine.

Many meditation techniques teach visualization methods for finding the chakras—focus on each center and send a ray of colored light up the body. One sleepless night a couple of decades ago, I didn’t have anything better to do than look for my chakras. I remember lying in bed, focusing on the base of my body (root chakra), picturing red color filling a spinning disc. Darned, if I didn’t actually feel an awareness.  So I kept moving up. Here are the basic chakra centers and corresponding colors:

Sensing energy centers is part of my work as a Reiki therapist. One method to open chakras that is more Western-friendly, is using the Lord’s Prayer. Dana Williams’ The Lord’s Prayer, The Seven Chakras, The Twelve Life Paths covers a lot of territory, including astrology. Her segment on The Lord’s Prayer caught my attention. The technique is also mentioned in The Healing Spot by Jan Phillip Holland, Ph.D., M.Ht.

Lately, I’ve been opening my prayer/mediation times in this manner, using the Lord’s Prayer from the top chakra down to get the energy channels moving and connected to Spirit. Sit comfortably, eyes closed. To better feel the energy fields, lift one hand above your head about six inches, point your fingers toward the crown of your head and slowing circle. You may feel a slight light-headedness, perhaps a tingling sensation. Move your hand to the corresponding area of the body as you travel to each chakra center, continuing a gentle circular motion.

Our Father who art in heavenwhite light above the head. Imagine a God finger of light entering the crown of your head, beaming a high frequency of healthy energy

Hallowed be thy namepurple light beaming into the forehead. Circle your hand a few inches in front of your forehead. Picture radiant amethyst light entering the forehead, stimulating the pineal gland and warming the brain, eyes, sinuses, and skull. This is where divine connection can enter the mind with heavenly thoughts. Quiet the mind and experience only the present moment.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be doneblue light to the throat. Circle your hand before your throat, picturing an exquisite blue shaft of light beaming into the neck and mouth. This chakra represents our power of speech. We call things into being. Claim health and personal empowerment. Imagine the thyroid gland basking in the blue light, absorbing healing energies to regulate all the systems of the body.

On earth as it is in heavengreen light opens the heart. Circle the open palm over the heart, imagine emerald green light sending divine healing and love to the heart chakra. The heart connects with the Creator and loved ones with very real etheric bonds. Emotional wounds can impair the ability to open the heart chakra and lead to a sick physical heart. Imagine a green laser of light opening a healing portal in the chest. See healing light cleansing and strengthening the heart and lungs.

Give us this day our daily breadyellow light feeds the stomach. Circle the palm in front of the stomach, imagine a sun yellow light sending spiritual nourishment. It’s here we feel hungry for physical food, but we can also feel an emotional ache in the pit of our stomachs. Healing yellow light feeds both the physical and emotional needs of the stomach and digestive organs.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.orange light below the belly button. Circle an orange light, soothing the deepest regions of the gut and bowels. This is the area we store guilt and grievances. Unforgiveness of self and others creates deep-seated life-long illness. Lift old grudges and regrets to the orange light. Let them go. Ask for divine help to forgive and forget. Feel the healing frequency of orange light restore intestines and the vital organs of the digestive system.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evilred light to the sexual centers. Red is a highly stimulating light frequency. The area of sexual energy can generate the highest ecstatic connection for human love or the greatest depths of violence and fear. Use the red light to heal memories of sexual abuse or shame. Ask for a transformation of red light to symbolize love and creativity. It is the place of new birth. Radiate healing red light to regenerate reproductive organs.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory foreverrun the energy into the earth down for grounding. Now imagine all the colored lights and energy swirling around and through the body. See white light entering the crown, down the body, and traveling through the feet into the ground, connecting heaven and earth.

AmenAnd so it is. Feel the whole body light and filled with Source energy.

Healing Energy Meditation Available on YouTube

by Dana Taylor

According to The Secret Language of Destiny book, I am on the Path of Articulation. If you are unfamiliar with this big tome, I highly recommend it. Based on astrology, it fits people to certain life paths according to when they were born. I’ve found it very useful in understanding the people in my life.

People on the Path of Articulation “are here to make a commitment to their unusual thinking or way of doing things by articulating it and bringing it to the attention of a broader audience.” Our core challenge is “overcoming the fear or rejection or humiliation.” Which I guess is one reason I found myself with New Age, mystical, healing urges living in the Bible Belt of Oklahoma for thirty years. I was learning how to Live My Truth, despite the culture around me.

Through the twists of fate, I now live in Hawaii, where I can relax into the spiritual diversity of the island. I’ve got the luxury of time, health, and energy to explore creative pursuits. I sing with a local chorus. I write their shows and my blogs and books. I explore the healing arts here and see occasional clients for Reiki energy treatments. Oh, yes, I go to the beach!

Lately, I’ve felt the spiritual nudge to build a Supernal Living presence on YouTube. People nowadays are listening more and reading less. I enjoy using my voice. I was a drama major, back in the day, after all. I’ve been told my voice has a pleasant, soothing cadence.

Also, I’ve listened to a variety of meditations on YouTube, my favorites being from Steve Nobel and Lillian Eden. But many others I’ve found lacking….something. Creativity? Power? I’m not sure.

Anyway, the advice for writing a book used to be, “write the book you want to read.” So, I guess, now for me the advice translates to “record the meditations you want to hear.”

So, I have begun. Last evening, I meditated a while and got into the “zone” and then turned on the microphone to see what would come out. I felt healing energy flowing through me as recreated an experience very similar to giving someone a basic energy treatment. It seemed like I was also transmitting healing energy as it went along. Hopefully, listeners will feel it. I know I have been impressed with the energy that comes through the Steve Nobel transmissions. Perhaps, I can tap into some channels that connect through time and space. Now, that would be interesting.

At any rate, I am uploading popular posts from Supernal Living and will explore producing more meditations, picking up a theme I’ve developed on my Facebook page. I’ve posted pictures of rainbows, ocean scenes, and tropical settings of my life on Oahu and called them Aloha Moments. My Facebook friends seem to enjoy them. It feels right to expand Aloha Moments to YouTube.

If you have a half an hour to sit back and relax or perhaps, drift off to sleep, give this first mediation a listen. I hope you find it healing and refreshing.

Aloha!

Supernal Living: Part Two

 Most of us center our awareness of life in our head—what we see, what we hear, taste, smell and mostly—think. Our thoughts chatter and clutter. With the advent of texting and countless digital devices, we can draw further into the mind and lose touch with everything going on around us. We also miss the other centers of personal awareness and exhaust ourselves in the process. I first became aware of sensing the world through other centers when I began praying for people in church settings. My hands grew in sensitivity to changes of the electromagnetic fields surrounding the person I was praying with. Taking it a step further after I received energy worker attunements, my hands turned into little Geiger Counters. They literally buzz as I move over an area that requires healing energy. I can feel the strands of energy lengthen and stretch, as if I’m untying energy knots.

 As I began studying quantum physics and vibrational medicine, I read about the “subtle body”—the energetic body. We are all an intricate highway system of energy paths in and around our physical body. Through meditation, I learned how to sense them. According to Eastern medicine there are seven basic energy centers running from the groin to the head. While many of us are oblivious to most of these energy centers, the sexual center of awareness is the one almost everyone past the age of ten can identify. Have you ever thought about the dynamics of sexual attraction? Physical responses follow the initial awareness as that energy center is opened and literally engulfs the whole person. Sometimes that center is so powerful it overrules all common sense or society rules.

 If you move up the body to the stomach, you’ll find another energy center. Ever had a “gut reaction”–a sudden awareness that something is either very wrong or very right? Good detectives are known for “following their gut.” It’s an intuitive center hovering around the belly that plays an important role in daily decisions. I’ve found when my mind is confused over an issue, I do better to relax and open that lower energy center. When the belly and mind find peace, I’ve usually made my decision.

 Traveling to the chest is, of course, the heart. Love songs, spiritual traditions, pledging by “crossing our heart” all acknowledge the importance of the heart energy center. For most of my life, the concept of “opening your heart” was theoretical. Certainly, I experienced love, but I didn’t feel it in my chest. Anxiety was the best description of any awareness in my chest. Then a series of emotional circumstances and a few more attunements triggered the opening of my heart center. Like a rusty door on creaky hinges, the opening was jerky. Physically, it was painful, like walking around with an open wound. Many buried emotional issues came to light and required attention and healing. Now, several years down the road, I can enjoy the expansion of my heart center. Awareness of the world through the heart can be beautiful. Nature sings and paints. Empathy and compassion from the heart make other people more human and less threatening. Living with your heart awareness on alert enriches daily living beyond measure—from enjoying the smile of a child to relishing sunset at day’s end.

 I encourage you to give your head a rest and discover your other awareness centers. Discover Supernal Living.
