In the previous six days I’ve shared breath exercises, a brief overview of the chakra system, and how to utilize color breathing with your meditation. Last night, after watching an episode of “Foyle’s War,”an excellent show about WW11 through the eyes of a British policeman, I was unable to fall asleep. My mind was racing with the images I had just witnessed, some violent in nature. It came to me, to let my mind wrap around color chakra breathing. Within a short while, less than fifteen minutes, I was asleep. Using these techniques, letting them become a part of your daily life can bring wonderful results!
Once you discover this new awareness within your own body you will never think of yourself the same way.
The exercise I learned from my first teacher over thirty five years ago was the one that changed the course of my life. I like to think of it as my Dorothy moment from “The Wizard of Oz,” when the Wizard told her she always had the ability to go back home. All she had to do was click here heels three times and say “there’s no place like home.”
Your human energy field is the same way. It has always been with you. Awareness is all you need to unlock your potential ability to heal yourself and those around you.
Begin by sitting comfortably in a chair, feet flat on the ground. Exhale all the stale air from your lungs, take in three clearing breaths breathing into the belly and exhaling gently through the mouth. Next rub your hands together as if you were starting a fire for about a minute. Close your eyes and gently pull them apart. Notice what you feel. Can you sense a magnetic pull, heat or cold sensations? Pull them a little further apart, still with closed eyes. Notice where you don’t feel them exerting a pull over each other. Bring them together and in your mind’s eye, see a ball. Feel the sides of the ball, and the top and bottom of it. What size is it? Is it a tennis ball or soccer ball? What color comes to mind as you hold your energy ball? If you don’t feel anything the first time, don’t give up. Everything gets better with practice. Namaste.
