“The supreme adventure in a man’s life is his journey back to his Creator.
To reach the goal he needs well-developed and coordinating functioning of his body, senses, mind, and Self.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Founder of Iyengar Yoga, 1918 – 2014
Visualisation is one of the most powerful tools for goal achievement. And here I will use visualisation to open each of your chakras and get them spinning ensuring prana energy moves between them. You will feel grounded and alive. Do this every morning, incorporating your daily, weekly or long term future goals and you will find the day easier to deal with, eventually leading to the achievement of your goals.
Sit cross-legged on the ground on a blanket or mat, either outside or inside. If you find this uncomfortable, sit on a chair with both feet on the ground. Ensure that you are aligned and centred.
Close your eyes, breathe in and out calmly. If you can, put your hands on the floor and ask Mother Earth for all your negativity, fears, worries and doubt to be released into the earth. Sit for a while to allow yourself time to relax whilst your negative emotions are released.
Then imagine the earth’s core and a brown liquid coming up through the earth. Imagine it turn a vibrant red and coming up to your perineum, to your root chakra. As it enters, imagine this good natural red energy coming up through your legs, knees and to your hips, strengthening you.
Now imagine it turning into a brilliant orange water going into your tummy and sacral chakra. Allow the liquid to swirl in your lower tummy activating your passions, joys and what makes you happy. Allow these feelings to ignite.
Now the liquid moves to your solar plexus and to your stomach. It turns into a golden, yellow liquid. It whirls around and ignites your will power. Allow the energy to warm and motivate you to do what you want to do in life. Imagine the golden liquid leaving the front of your stomach and out of your back and turning into soft, golden ribbons. They circulate around you, protecting you. This forms a yellow blanket around you, soft on the inside, but titanium on the outside, deflecting other people’s negative energy and will power. Nothing will affect your will and what you want to do in life.
From your solar plexus this warm, energy moves to your heart and heart chakra. It turns to a fresh green liquid, warming and softening your heart. Allow it to feel love. Imagine it moving to the edges of your chest to your shoulders, where it has a soft pink edge, moving down your arms.
This liquid now moves up to your throat chakra. It turns into a light blue colour swirling around your throat clearing it of negativity. Breath in a pale blue light and imagine exhaling navy blue air. Do this a few times. This is any negative words spoken, leaving you and clear energy coming back in. Any words you speak will be warm and positive. Move your head from side to side, allowing the light blue liquid to clear out your ears, so that you listen to others.
Moving to your head, the liquid turns a violet purple colour. Breathe in through your third eye, clearing it, allowing you to have clarity of foresight. Open your eyes and look around you taking in what is about you. You can not control others or your environment, you can only influence. Now close your eyes again. Tell yourself that any negative thoughts will be replaced with positive thoughts. Any emotions that come up through your body will be recognised, acknowledged, investigated, non-identified and released out for good. Now take a step into your inner consciousness to your soul. Say ‘hello, hello, hello’. The person listening to your thoughts is you. You are not your thoughts.
Take the liquid to your crown where it turns to a very light violet. Allow your crown chakra to open. Give thanks to the higher power (God, Allah, the universe, the sun whatever you chose). Be grateful for your comfortable home, your loving partner, your beautiful children and grandchildren, your parents, your extended family and friends. Be thankful for the life that you have been given and the ability to enjoy it. Feel the gratitude extend upwards. Wait here for a little until you connect with the higher power.
Once you feel this powerful connection, imagine pure white light descending from the higher power and slowly moving through you and your chakras, creating a flow.
The light moves to your head, clearing your third eye where you will be able to have clear wisdom and vision. Now to your throat, allowing you to speak the truth and listen to others. The light will descend to your heart and radiate the love of the higher power through your chest enabling you to feel love and give love. It moves to your solar plexus and through the same portals as your ribbons surrounding you in a pure, white light so you are protected by the higher power. It swirls calmly into your sacral chakra, enabling you to feel the joy of life with peace. Then it descends through your hips, legs and knees giving you the strength you need. And finally, it transcends to the earth where it connects with Mother Earth. Now feel a flow from the earth up through all your chakras to your soul and to the higher power. Then back again.
You are one. Mind, body and soul. Mother Earth, Higher Power and You.
