Water has a natural ionization effect on a body and can increase your awareness to energy as it flows over you.
Practice: With the water running down your back:
- Hold one hand at the base of your spine. This is the back of your second chakra.
- Hold the other hand over the lower abdomen. Move your hand two inches away from the lower abdomen. Your hand should be about two inches below your belly button. This is the front of your second chakra.
- Relax into your breath.
- Once relaxed, with your eyes closed for beginners and open for advanced, visualize the motion of the chakra.
- With your thoughts encourage the rotation of the chakra to be counterclockwise. Your body is the face of the clock.
- With the hand two inches away from your lower abdomen, rotate your fingertips in a circle counterclockwise, turning three or four times.
- Feel the resistance in your body to this motion. Go at a pace that you are creating gentle movement with your mind and fingers within the resistance energy of the body.
- After a few spins scoop up what you have moved and rinse your fingers in the water.
This practice breaks up the energetic sludge and toxins that adhere to the walls of the chakra. Repeat for all seven chakras, rinsing your hands thoroughly in between to help the body and mind accept the release of the energetic build up.
After you have cleared the chakras:
- Return your focus to your first chakra.
- Spinning your hand clockwise three or four times, with your thoughts encourage the rotation of the chakra to be clockwise.
- Repeat this with all seven chakras to return the speed and direction of the chakra to clockwise.
Practice Variation: Pay attention to the different textures you may find in each chakra- like cotton, soup, granite and more. Each sensation represents a specific kind of energy block you are utilizing. Over time you can connect the behavior to the type of block you create. This will help identify the root issue so it can be released permanently.
Purpose: A clean, clear chakra is able to draw in natural energy to support you in all areas of your life.
