Intended Duration: 10 minutes
Actual Duration: 50 minutes
Thoughts: I was ready for meditation today. I had a solid night of sleep- no crazy, haunting dreams to throw me off. I also spent my Saturday sorting through some murky emotions. It seems that I don't always know the source of what makes me experience certain feelings. By the end of the day, I had pinpointed some pretty important things that were impacting my being. My meditation today was fantastic as a result of yesterday's struggle for clarity.
Focus: Breathing and my meditation tree to view my chakras.
Also, I ended up having some affirmations today: I am love and light. I am joy and peace. These are my favorites.
Visions: My chakra tree always brings strong visuals, insight, and understanding of my own self. I love it, which probably means I love me! I ventured through each chakra, seeing what aspects of myself need work, what is going well, and where I will be growing. I'm so excited to be sharing this journey with you. It happens to be a part of what I am supposed to be doing- and I feel so liberated to be writing about it.
My Chakra Reading for Today:
Root: Basking in the sun and glow of being able to do the work that I love. At each chakra, I see an aspect of me, and here I am often given a nourishing tea or tonic- which is symbolic of course. It helps my body heal on an energetic level, or on the finite cellular level. Things are going well in my Root.
Sacral: My creativity is on the verge of being fully expressed. Lots of writing to do and art to create. I had to let go of some dark energy here. I became aware of it through my mindfulness yesterday. There is healing going on here. It was an area of stagnation for so long, and is finally coming alive.
Solar Plexus: The energy is strong and swirling smoothly here. It reminds me of images you might see of stars in outer space. It's a reliable place for me to effect change within my being. I was able to let go of darkness lingering in my heart chakra through here. The relief in my heart space was immediately felt in my body.
Heart: This has been my most vivid chakra space. A lot is housed here that is directly linked to my physical being and experiences. I love this place. Today my heart was mended. The reason for it needing mending happens to be a long story that might be shocking to some people. I am not really ready to put that out for public consumption yet. The most pertinent information for you to know is that: my heart had an energetic hole in it. Two massage therapists have done energy work on it in the past, and helped close the gap, but I could still feel it. During my heart chakra meditation, I was able to bring the energies of my being together, tiny tendrils of each chakra were woven into a thread, and the hole in my heart space was finally closed. This could not occur until I was ready to heal, and ready to do the work to heal myself. This lead to what looked like a fireworks display of energy flowing through my being. I saw Kundalini rising. I could feel a lot of joy and excitement surrounding me.
Throat: It appears that I've done some excellent work on this chakra. The energy was running smoothly and calmly.
Third Eye: When I went to this chakra, I basically received a reading for the next five years from my Higher Self. It was an outlook reading- very broad, with some specific details when I asked clarifying questions. The topics that were covered included family, relationship, career, money, and wellness of my mind, body, and spirit. It was an amazing experience. It proved to me that all I have to do is tune in, and I can find the answers.
Crown: Today I met three more of my spirit guides. A fourth guide that I've known for years was finally able to give me his name. It was quite unexpected. I've tried to truly know and see my guides in the past, and I've only seen beings of light surrounding me with love and compassion. They were easy to see during this meditation. They gave me their names in this order: Michael, Ravi, Dalia, and Sen. I immediately questioned the authenticity of the information I was receiving, and wondered if I was making it up. I had to go with it though, because I've never seen all of them so clearly before, and I had no expectations at the beginning of my meditation. I wasn't thinking about seeing them at all, but now I believe the healing work I have done made it possible for me to receive more information from Source.
Here is what they shared with me:
Michael: He clarified that he is Archangel Michael. He's been with me always and has helped me, along with Ravi, during some incredibly difficult times during the past decade. I looked him up online. I have not been a huge believer in angels in the past- but I saw him. It is what it is.
Ravi: He is an old friend of mine from a past life. He helped me realize my interest in Hindu gods and Sanskrit. He also has helped me see my strong connection with Ganesha. I would say of my guides, he seemed the most human, and was smiling a lot. I looked up the meaning of Ravi's name: Sun (Update August 2016: I discovered that he is actually also a friend who passed away when I was I young. Amazing.)
Dalia: Dalia has chosen to be with me. She is an intricate and rich tapestry of feminine energy, from this world and elsewhere. She chose to assist me on my journey in this lifetime because she finds us to be similar, and wants to help me embody my True Self. I already admire her strength and wisdom. She will be my primary guide from now on, according to her. I'm elated. I looked up the meaning of Dalia's name: Branch- of a grapevine or olive tree. I love this, because my Meditation Tree is so important to me- it really is fitting that her name means Branch!
Sen: I began seeing Sen (Sensei) when I first started meditating in 2008. I was amused when he showed me his name today. I took karate in college, and I thought maybe it was a joke that his name was Sensei. The simple truth is that he is a teacher, and purposely chose that name so I could fully understand how he guides me. He carries a lantern, and has shown me the way through the dark, and into the light on several occasions. He is a busy being, and I am not his only student.
(Update August 2016: I have another guide with me. Her name is Nebula and she is pure magic of the Earth. She is assisting me with building very strong roots with the physical plane of existence. I recently received an intense and life changing Healing from another energy worker, and now Nebula is here to help me anchor my spiritual self with the earthly self.)
That concludes the visions from this meditation. I feel so great. I really hope that I can help other people find their way to their True Selves.
Wisdom: Be calm. Be compassionate.
