MEDITATION THE KEY TO HEALING THE SELF IS BEING STILL
First, find a quiet place to sit. Sit on a chair or on the floor, however, you feel most comfortable. If sitting on a chair sit up straight with your spine erect and your feet flat on the floor. If you are sitting on the floor, sit cross-legged as best as you can. Place your hands comfortably on the top of your knees. Bring your index fingers to your thumbs on both hands and face the palms of your hands upward. Close your eyes and begin to concentrate your inner gaze at the point that is near the center of your forehead. This point, just above and between your two eyes, is commonly referred to as your third eye.
Become mindful of your breath. Take five minutes to breathe in slowly and with concentration, in through your nose and then out through your mouth. Begin to observe any and all thoughts that cross your mind. Consciously see each of these thoughts dissolving and not important at this moment. Your goal is to be present to the NOW. Continue your inner gaze through your third-eye and watch for the image of your reflection pool to still. This stillness will occur as your thoughts dissolve into nothingness and the present moment of your breath.
With each breath become aware of any tension in your body. Feel the power of your breath to bring release and peace to this area of self-created tension. Continue your inner gaze and conscious breathing. Allow the peace of your breath and stillness of your mind to connect you to your TrueSelf, that of only love. With this new inner stillness, you will likely see a rich blue or violet color in your third-eye. Stay in this space of awareness as long as you can or choose.
ADVANCED THREE STEP MEDITATION:
“Breath-of-Fire, Humming, and Ho’ponopono Chakra healing. (This process utilizes hyperventilated breathing, which Yogi’s call “Breath of Fire.” If you have any medical condition – it is recommended that you consult with your physician first before attempting this mediation and/or simply breath slowly as described in the Beginning Still Meditation.)
Overview Understanding of the Advanced Three Step Meditation process:
1) The Breath-of-Fire is designed to help further clear your mind of distracting thoughts while bringing higher concentrations of oxygen into your brain.
2) The “Ho’oponopono,” according to Wikipedia, is an ancient Hawaiian process of reconciliation and forgiveness.” At its’ mystical core are the elements of mental cleansing, putting things right and rectifying errors. Attending with this awareness activation is the recognition that we are always 100 percent at cause and responsible for any problem.
Similarly, it is defined that we are also 100 percent capable of rectifying any and all errors. Four short phrases activate the process of this healing process and release us from the groove of suffering: “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” Through the melody of these words, we transmute and transcend the error of our thoughts, become free of attachments and now co-create from new and loving possibilities.
3) The Body’s Chakra System Overview
The 1st Chakra energy center (know as the Muladhara or Root Chakra) is located at the base of your spine near the tailbone. The Root Chakra is symbolized by lotus flower of four petals and is associated with the color red. The 1st Chakra deals with base survival energies of the self; fight or flight instincts, security, mental stability, sensuality, and sexuality.
Working upwardly, the next energy center, the 2nd Chakra (known as Swadhisthana), is located just slightly above the Root Chakra, in the area of the sacrum near a man’s testes or a woman’s ovaries. This Chakra is symbolized by the crescent moon of the lotus flower and is associated with the color orange. Its’ energies deal with relationships, emotional stability, and pleasure, violence, and addictions.
The 3rd Chakra, known as Manipura, is located in the stomach area and is symbolized by the downward-pointing triangle of the lotus’s ten petals. Its’ associated color is yellow. This Chakra’s energies deal with translations and transformation of emotions fear, stress and anxiety into personal powers of spiritual growth and mental expansiveness.
Working upwardly, the next energy center, the 4th Chakra (known as the Anahata) is symbolized by a twelve-petal green circular flower. It is located in the chest and heart area of the body and is associated with the color green or pink. The 4th Chakra deals with energies of unconditional love, emotional balance, compassion, tenderness, how we handle rejection and our sense of inner well-being.
The 5th Chakra, located in our throat, is known as Vishuddha. It is symbolized by a silver crescent with sixteen pale blue or turquoise petals. This energy center deals with and governs our communication, our ability to articulate our thoughts and speak authentically, our spiritual expression.
The 6th Chakra, known as Ajna (our third-eye), is linked to the pineal gland and is located in the center of the forehead, at the point just above and between your two eyes. It is associated with the colors indigo, violet or deep blue and is symbolized by a two-pedal lotus. The 6th Chakra is associated with our intuition and the abilities to envision, bring balance to our higher and lower self and our ability to be spiritually discerning.
The 7th and final Chakra called Sahasrara or Crown Chakra is located at the top of our head and is associated with the pure consciousness of the color white. The Crown Chakra is symbolized by the thousand petal lotus and deals with the energies of releasing karma (negative energies created by non-loving thoughts and actions), meditation and connection with God Consciousness, unity, the integration love as the singular truth and the realization of Dharma (lovingly living in alignment with our life purpose).
Beginning The Three Step Meditation:
“After completing the beginning stillness meditation now bring your hands to your hips. Keep your eyes closed and concentrated on your third-eye. Begin the Breath-of-Fire by breathing rapidly in through your nose and out through your nose 65 times. (You can also breathe slowly if you have a concern over some medical condition).
Next, with your eyes still closed, bring you your hands comfortably to the top your knees. Again, bring your index fingers to your thumbs on both hands and face the palms of your hands upward. Now begin to HUM intensely. This humming sound causes your right and left hemispheres of your brain to synchronize and work simultaneously. The humming further eradicates any thought bubbles from occurring. HUM intensely 65 times.
Next, with your eyes still closed and hands-on knees, you will focus your breathing and the Ho’ponopono clearing to restore and align the body’s seven Charka energy centers. This meditation brings healing and balancing energies to all of our Chakras.
Repeat the slow Beginning Meditation Breath and Ho’ponopono Process for Each Chakra:
Begin at the Root Chakra and then work upwardly through each energy center until reaching the Crown Chakra.
Breath in deeply and slowly in through your nose and then out through your mouth. With each breath inwardly imagine white light flooding the Chakra. You can imagine dark light being expelled. You will be breathing into each Chakra 12 total times, four breaths and three rounds.
Round one / modified Ho’ponopono: As you breathe in your first breath, simultaneously inwardly speak the words “I AM”, then exhale. As you breathe in your second breath, simultaneously inwardly speak the words “I Accept Your Grace”, then exhale. With your third breath in, now inwardly speak the words “Thank You”, then exhale. And with your forth breath inwardly say “I Love You”, then exhale. Repeat the breath and inwardly spoken modified Ho’ponopono words again to complete round two, and again to complete round three. In essence, with each accompanying breath, you will have said the complete Ho’ponopono a total of three times through each and every Chakra.
Once the Advanced Three Step Meditation is complete it is recommended that you BE STILL in the moment and give thanks to the Creator Awareness for all that you are and/or have any desire to be. Pray for others, yourself, peace on earth and for the reverent safekeeping of all nature and Mother Earth.
