The chakras are subtle energy centres, at the hub of our being, through which our energy bodies are made manifest. In the two meditations on this CD you learn to tune into each chakra, with its different character, and release its energy. The chakras remind us that our being extends much further beyond just a visible physical body. We are beings of energy, with multiple bodies of energy. As such we are receiving and giving this energy, this vital life force, constantly … as our breath demonstrates. With more practice, as we become more consciously aware of the totality of our being, we realise that we can positively effect and change this energy to heal and create as we need and wish.
"In stillness and quiet lies our strength"
Once again I have been blessed to work with Hannah and Joe from Acoustic Eidolon (https://www.tradebit.com), who generously supplied their home and recording studio in colorado during the making of this cd, as well as intuitively creating beautiful, original cello music to accompany my voice.
ABOUT THE CHAKRAS
The presence of the chakras are felt and recognised in our everyday lives constantly, with phrases such as “Butterflies in the stomach.” “Getting a gut feeling.” “To come from the heart.” “To get a feeling for something or someone.” “To feel grounded or rooted.”
To be able to walk into a room of people and sense the atmosphere.
To meet a stranger and know that you like them, before even talking or seeing their face… ; To fall in love…
All of these phrases point to a knowing beyond just the physical realm.
There is much information about chakras to be read and sourced from different cultures. Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline https://www.tradebit.comN 0-553-50527-0 and Paul Grilley''s chakra DVD are two valuable sources that are thoroughly recommended to consolidate your personal experience further.
This CD however encourages you to develop chakra awareness through hands-on experience. Direct knowledge comes through Direct experience. This goes way beyond the reasoning, judging nature of the mind.
Chakra meditation is just one effective way to become more aware of the totality of our being, by shining the light of consciousness onto different parts of ourselves. Sometimes we do this to deepen a sense of wonder and other times to recover parts of ourselves we have forgotten, ignored or blocked.
Sometimes this can manifest in emotional pain and/or physical illness. Indeed each chakra generally affects and governs those areas of the physical body around and close to it.
THE FIRST PRACTICE,
with the laying on of hands, develops sensitivity to the seven principal chakras, as well as to those in our hands. It is also provides a focus to relax deeper and develop further the witnessing, meditative nature of the mind. Over time with practice we sense more readily whether a chakra feels full, balanced, empty, over stimulated, closed or open. These are all subjective terms. More importantly, we get to know how it is, how all the chakras are, and therefore how we are and why we are. We recognise cycles and rhythms in our being, which with intent and practice we can consciously,positively change to lead fuller, healthier and more joyful, meaningful lives.
THE SECOND PRACTICE
is a yoga nidra practice (following on from the first yoga nidra cd) to consolidate the spinal breathing and chakra presence further, with the opportunity, as always with yoga nidra, of bringing to birth new personal resolves into our lives; sowing new seeds of our choice into the bed of our mind. With care, clarity and intent these seeds can grow to become a powerful directive in our lives
As with all relaxation practices, comfort is of prime importance. Choose clothing you are comfortable in and that will maintain body warmth, as the temperature of the physical body can drop as it settles into stillness. A blanket over the body can be a useful help in leading your awareness within. Sometimes as well putting pillows under the knees can help relax the lower back and diaphragm, helping free, unimpeded breathing.
The CD can be used at any time of the day, and as with any practice, will reap more benefits the more it is used. Indeed it is meant to stimulate the knowledge that we are ultimately all our own healers - to act as we are moved to.
In stillness and quiet lies our strength
May you enjoy and benefit from the magnificence of your being.
