If there is one thing you can do quickly to align all your chakras, it is the Central Channel Meditation!

It involves only simple action from you. If you understand the axiom “Energy goes where thought flows,” and believe that it is true, then you will understand how this method works.

However, you quickly need to do an assessment of how you experience your world: are you visual, auditory or kinesthetic? Just about every person I ask this question will immediately answer that they are visual. That is not true! Our society bombards us with the notion that you need to see, visualise or see in your imagination. So we all end up believing that if we do not clearly see a visual in our mind’s eye, then we are not psychic or there is something wrong with us.

Are you a visual, kinesthetic or auditory person?

Get rid of the notion that you need to visualise any meditation, and rather figure out which of the following three senses are more dominant in helping you process your environment:

  • If you are, in fact, visually inclined you will necessarily use visual cues to describe an event. When you use phrases such as “I saw a tall man in a blue suit” or “Prickly, yellow pineapples with spiky green crowns” should tell you that you process your environment through the sense of sight;
  • An auditory person will use names and labels to describe a subject, like “When I was in Durban we went to a restaurant named Havana Grill” or “Turn left into Miller Avenue, and look out for the Sasol garage on your left”.
  • A kinaesthetic person will relate how something feels to them, either physically or even emotionally: “We drove up a very long avenue that sloped steeply up a gigantic hill” or “The food was so spicy and was wrapped in thin, soft pastry dough that was served hot from the oven.”

If you struggle to find your dominant sensory processing method, you are welcome to contact me for a session and I will help you to discover and explore it. It is really valuable information, especially when used to process various traumas!

The Meditation

Now, back to the chakra meditation.

  1. First, close your eyes and start to settle yourself into a comfortable position.
  2. Move your attention inward, and start focussing on the flow of your breath: what stands out the most? Is it a fragrance, or the sensation of the breath? Maybe the temperature change as you breathe in, and then out again? What other qualities do you notice about your breath?
  3. Now move to the centre of your chest, close to the heart area.
  4. Notice a shaft of energy that runs right down the centre of your chest. It is like a column that runs through the chest centre. This is the vagus nerve and is responsible for general wellbeing.
  5. Allow this energy to grow for a few breaths.
  6. Move your awareness now to the top of your head, to the location of the crown and the Crown Chakra.
  7. Open this chakra to the sky above, inviting Divine White Light to enter through the top of the crown like a strong, thin and rigid staff.
  8. Draw this shaft or staff of White Light all the way down, letting it move down your spine and as it travels downward your chakras are all being pulled into alignment: into a straight line, balanced and operating perfectly.
  9. Allow the shaft of Light to pull all the way down, through the Root chakra and into the earth.
  10. Now anchor this shaft of Light in the centre of the Earth. Since this shaft originates from Source, the All-that-Is, it will always be held taught and keep your chakras aligned and balanced.
  11. This shaft also feeds Divine Light into the chakras, which is then distributed throughout your whole system as it is needed.
  12. You may now bring your attention back to your surroundings, and whenever you are ready, you may open your eyes.

    Amazing!!!! Thank you and I am assuming that this is better without the shoes on!!🤪
    So happy to have you in our life!

      Hey Robert and Francine! Not at all – you can do this with or without shoes. When working with energy, it is important to remember that we are channelling electromagnetic energy and NOT electricity. This means that shoes of any kind will not interfere with the flow of the energy.

      However, it is anyways always more enjoyable to be barefoot – shoes can be so restricting and uncomfortable! So do try it without shoes, if only for the sheer comfort and joy of being FREE 😁
