Re: How To Open Your Chakras

Post by President Roosevelt on Sat Jun 27, 2015 3:56 pm

Of course, Lotus. Do whatever you want to it. Maybe I should start a new thread about chakras.

I think I learned more from this video become it is so simple and resonates with me at a deeper level. I never realized that chakras have their own duality. Just as a chakra has an angel, it also has a demon. Just as the heart chakra holds love, it's blocked by grief.

At first, I was skeptical about the existence of chakras until I started experimenting with them and actually feeling them in my body. Maybe it was my imagination playing tricks on me. But I think the chakra system neatly organizes various subconscious instincts and emotional powers available to us all.

One of the big lessons I took away from my youth is that we can't deny the lower chakras. Way back when I was trying to desperately attract love, I thought: "Ok, let's power up the heart chakra." So I thought loving thoughts, wore green sweaters, ate green foods, drank green tea. But that's not it...I still had a lot of grief left over in there. And I didn't want to acknowledge it because I still had a lot of fear, guilt, and shame in the lower chakras. The irony of it is that when I focused on the root chakra, my self-confidence came back and that was all I really needed to get the ball rolling. A lot of websites will say that the lower three chakras are too egotistical, too earthly, and make it sound to be evil or something bad. But we are spiritual beings having a human experience, so why deny the parts of ourselves that are human? Like Robert Frost wrote, "Earth is the right place for love; I don't know where it's likely to go better."

So once I dealt with those "demons", I then faced the sadness of "failed" love with creative writing. The powers of the lower three chakras, confidence, creativity, will-power, combined and helped me to find way to really get into the heart and free it. And then my heart was at peace after that and it was easier to attract better things to me. Also, I realized that much of my focus was on the top three chakras and I denied the others. This probably gave me the feeling that "I don't belong on earth. I belong with God". So when trouble came, I was always the kind of person to run away to my room and visualize and ask God to comfort me. I'm pretty sure a Higher Spirit did listen and paved the way to get me back into my root chakra power.

I've been focusing a lot lately on my root chakra, so lots more exercising, being present in my body, getting in tune with my self-reliant warrior spirit, and trusting my body and my inner strength. Now, I feel greater than ever. No more worrying. No more looking for someone's love to band-aid my own cuts. The best part is that I think some of the power is abundant enough to help my sacral chakra because it's been a lot easier for me lately to enjoy my favorite things without that guilty thought of "I should be working harder. I don't deserve this." I can now honestly say "Yes, I deserve to have fun," which was always hard for me to accept before. Plus, my creative drive is much livelier lately. Looking back in my life, I beat depression once by facing fear and letting it go and that was the foundation for "new life".

What am I trying to write? I don't know, it's an adventure Wink Let's end this with a song:

So very beautiful, Mr. President. ♥ Although you're young it terms of age, your experience is very deep and rich we all can learn from and I personally do. Thanks my friend for this lovely addition. I won't write much here (as this itself may be deleted later--up to the mods) but yes, it'd be great to start a new thread on chakras. More than one actually, it sure deserves. Thanks also for the "song." Very Happy was really surprising by the way. Smiley thanks a lot my wonderful friend.

President Roosevelt, that clip is a great find. I watched it with my daughter- she came by to see why I was watching a cartoon Smile

In the Neville thread we were referring to keeping things simple and it surely applies to this as well. Sometimes I wish everything was taught as it would be to kids Razz

Thanks for sharing! That's a wonderful way to learn!

And it's great if kids are being introduced to these ideas! I know when I was a kid we didn't have anything like that and it would have been awesome to have been introduced to these concepts when I was younger.

This is one are that I haven't explored too much yet and it was a nice lesson!

As far as I'm aware the chakras are always open, so don't necessarily need to be opened. They do need cleaning/clearing at times however.
You can actually do more damage trying to force chakras open or work too often or too much with one chakra and neglect the others, making some overactive or underactive.
Eg working with the Ajna (third eye) chakra and neglecting the muladhara (base/root) can make you very ungrounded and prone to fantasy.
Balance is key imo when working with chakras.

Yes, my old teacher used to say that for more spiritually inclined people like us, the upper 4 chakras are usually stronger than the lower 3.
