Shakti Gawain rocked my world with her book Creative Visualization. She showed me a whole new reason to think. I must have read that book three times the first year I found it. I was ingesting her ideas. I was growing into the whole idea of having a say in how my life progressed. The idea is still ingenuous. I am still awakening to this mode of living. I am totally loving it, and still learning it. Shakti Gawain blew open the doors for me of how I live my life. She was the first to tell me in all seriousness that – If I think it, it will become. It is a very powerful way to live.
When I first read Shakti Gawain’s works I had never encountered guided meditation. I’m not sure I had considered meditation – guided or not – at all. It wasn’t meditation to me. It was…ideas to ponder. Though Shakti may be a proponent of meditation, it was the affirmations she offered that I found myself grappling with. For me affirmations are good. Since then I have learned meditations are better. I already had chanting and prayers imbedded in my buddhist practise so affirmations just loaded up my mental wheelbarrow. Meditations allow me to unload the wheelbarrow and just sit in it.
This meditation – Running Energies – I have used from Shakti’s meditation, “Opening the Energy Centers”. As I considered this meditation I also considered adjusting the information presented to include the chakras. It would be an easy inclusion. The more I thought of it though, I have to say Shakti is probably right in not stating or bringing in the specific chakras here. Not everyone is knowledgeable about chakras. Those that are have varying degrees of Chakra understanding, knowledge and insight. And then the final nail in the coffin (so to speak) came from an audio I found myself listening to a rather compelling argument of why we really don’t need to worry about chakras knowledge, chakra clearing, or chakra management. This link is not an affiliate link, as always, feel free to click-through at no cost to you or myself for an interesting take on our chakras and our belly buttons too.
Our whole body feels good for our energy clearing. I do know, for myself, that to clear my own energies and to get my internal awareness flowing feels invigorating and delightful. For this it is worth posting a meditation for Running Energies. Maybe its exercise without even opening our eyes.
Enjoy, as you continue to breathe.
