SPIRITUAL SOVEREIGNTY II - CHAKRA BALANCING




Self-healing work that is done on emotional, physical and spiritual levels is facilitated by 
determining exactly which elements are out of balance. 
This can be done by knowing the governing principles of your energetic centres & employing techniques and practices to bring the centres into greater balance. 

All disease begins energetically in the auric field before it manifests in the physical body. 
So clearing the auric field regularly and balancing the energy centres ensures better health & also protection from external sources that compromise health.

These primarily centres govern specific locations of the body & their functions.
 'Universal energy' or life-force is received through the crown and 
into the root chakra (in males) This is then affected by many different 
things on an energetic level. 
Balancing & clearing can be done through relatively simple actions, such as spending 
time around water to balance & amplify emotional/creative states, (sacral) 
to simply incorporating more of the colour frequency that is lacking.

Some practices involve long-term commitment, but several months should be spent clearing each chakra individually and systematically, working on each characteristic to ensure a fully clear system. 
A period of grounding is usually undertaken first to ensure that the energy 
is not too powerful for the system.

The results gained by self-healing and self-empowerment work depends on the levels of imbalance, understanding and use of real practices & patience as the spiritual process unfolds.  
Commitment, dedication & determination are also required. 
Not everyone will have a full activation of their kundalini potential in this life-time, some will only get so far & the majority are not ready for this 
process at all -  this will be determined by your awareness, enthusiasm & inner-knowing.

In general, self-healing work takes perseverance. It is often very personally confronting and difficult.  
It is not entirely pleasant processing conscious childhood abuse, unlocking repressed memories of traumatic events that the mind has disassociated from. Or tapping into 'past' life-times of hard-ship, persecution, painful death. 
Or feeling the collective grief regarding cataclysm & destruction that are retained in cellular memories within the body & exist within us all. 

Those who reach truly organic and enlightened states of being live their lives
 in very different ways than most. Living from this higher perspective develops clarity in all aspects. Fear, self-sabotage, victimisation & self-doubt 
are all diminished - Joy, acceptance, appreciation & simplicity in life increase. No longer are you ruled by the actions of others, emotional reactions become a choice, feelings of lack & creating negative experiences also decrease. Old fears no longer hold you back, you are in control of your life, rather than it being in control of you.There is a reliance on a higher guidance & sense of atonement with reality, that brings true inner peace and calm.  

Self-healing is an on going process that becomes more efficient and refined over time, 
with practice & increased awareness.  
With the opening of the third eye chakra (pineal gland) there is the ability to visualise the  colour of your energy fields, learning how to perceive & see the changes you make to them. 
Some areas in your energy body maybe 'polarised', (overly energetic) and 
others maybe blocked or under-utilising energy, even within the same chakra. 

The majority operate from the lower 3 centres, which are often over-active;
They have closed heart-centres mainly due to parental abandonment issues from childhood & often over activity/negativity in the upper centres due to
living in such an over stimulated, mental world. 
The closing of the heart chakra results in a society that is devoid of compassion, spiritual connection or intuitive abilities. 
Instead, ego, narcissism and materialism rule, 
Ego means that most conflict will be met with fearful aggressive reactions,
as most things appear to be an underlying threat to personal survival. 

Imbalanced energy centres may appear in overly bright colour frequencies, muddy or darker, as the true colour frequency changes, this is often due to over-stimulation, imbalance (blocks, etheric hooks, holes, implants, entity attachments, dense/stagnant energy. etc) & also incorrect teaching (new age)/use of colour codes. 
Correct colour codes can be maintained by removing excess levels of colour  and visualising the correct shade in its place.  This can also be done 
by releasing the energy which causes the imbalance in the first place :- 
i.e) Releasing enough anger from the system will eventually revert 
bright red root chakra back to pale red.

After balancing and clearing the energies, a daily maintenance practice is  important to keep things functional. This can be done by spinning the auric field within its chakra bands to 
keep the energy field balanced.  

* Never spin chakras individually, as this can generate openings  in them, always spin horizontally around the body from bottom up, within the appropriate colour bands to rebalance.

Protection of the auric field is also advised. 
Using one of the highest colour frequencies -
 Violet, will provide protection of the energy field without
 causing  damage to the body/energy field.
The use of violet in and around the body/aura prevents any unwanted energy loss or interference from entities/electromagnetic sources. 

Detailed below are the principles of the main 7 chakras and a few methods of balancing and clearing, frequent practice of visualisation work is essential to promote 'psychic sight' 

* Affirmations are a way of replacing negative mind patterns with more beneficial ones, repeating three times with conviction, creates changes even at a cellular/DNA level. Make your own, but always use positive statements, 
Creation does not acknowledge negatives, such as not, no, can't etc.

* Activation of kundalini that is done too quickly, can result in mental disorders, depression and general over stimulation of the nervous system. 

* Use of white light for protection or transmutation
 diminishes and fades colours of the auric field.

* Legs/feet resonate to the colour brown, grounding prevents unwanted 
over stimulation/activation 

* Visualising closing down the chakras after working on them. 

* Results can be subtle & only noticeable with consistent work 
over a period of time.
