Last month I attended Awakening of the Illuminated Heart, a heart healing workshop that taught us how to connect our Brow Chakra to our Heart, so that we could see the world through our Heart and not the mind. This connection is also one that Barbara Brennan references in Hands of Light, telling us that Unconditional Love flows when both of these Chakras are open and connected. The Brow Chakra and its corresponding Aura layer make it possible for us to see the light in others, regardless of who they are to us. The big reveal at the end of the workshop was a manifesting meditation that we can use to create images with our Heart and Mind, things that you want to bring into your life. I started out visualizing themes like healing, abundance, friendships and a completely healed and whole emotional body so that I can relate to others from a place of wholeness and not old hurts. I think I'm almost there, but there are probably a few experiences that I still need to release. Rather than carry on with the manifesting meditations, I have been connecting with my healing guides through my Heart Chakra and just chilling out. Since then my energy has been shifting in ways that I didn't expect. This is what I've noticed so far:
Grounding through the Base Chakra
I've been practicing energy healing and meditation since 2009. In the early days I was incredibly ungrounded, say 37% out of 100 (don't ask me how I got to that number as its a long story lol). Since then I have been working on grounding my energy, usually with clairsentient meditations where you run earth energy through your legs to your Base Chakra and down again. As a result, I got to be very good at grounding through my foot chakras and that's fantastic, but I still couldn't ground through my Base Chakra. We did lots of meditations in Healing School, they often began with grounding through the Base Chakra. The idea was to drop a grounding cord from the bottom of your spine (or Base) into the ground and let it sink to the center of the earth. I usually wound up grounding through my feet instead. My Base wasn't as open as my upper Chakras and I couldn't wrap my head around it. Thankfully my legs compensated for my ungrounded Base Chakra or I wouldn't have gotten very far with healing either.
The past few weeks I've noticed a change and I think it's the workshop. There was one particular meditation where the teacher guided us through activating our Merkabas (merkawhats?), which Google defines as "the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with higher realms." It's also meant to be an Ascension tool, though in my peculiar world view Ascension may very well be about grounding. In class we also learned to program our Merkabas to speed up the earthly learning process, attracting people, events and life lessons that will help us grow (in a friendly way, I hope). I haven't been able to sense my Merkaba just yet, but I do feel a lot better, more grounded and happier since I activated it. I am not sure if the teachers intended for the Merkaba Activation to ground us, but I strayed from the meditation and activated my Base Chakra spontaneously.
This is what happened ...
