Balance Your Chakras With Self-Hypnosis
This week I attended a workshop led by an amazing man from the far east whose work I have followed for a long time.
I played the role of needlessly excited student throughout the workshop: If he wanted a volunteer, I put my hand up and shouted "Me! Me! Me!" I sat at the front of the class, I went to speak to him during the breaks and I agreed with most things that were being said... Basically, I regressed to an 8-15 year old at various times throughout the event!
This I put down to the fact that I love learning and I was in awe of this particular man and his work. He actually said very little to me. The things he did say made a massive impact on me and it showed me that sometimes the smallest of things can have the most profound effect on us - observations especially.
He observed that I was very energetic and he also observed that I was a wee bit drained of energy; "Well, let's get that replenished in the first meditation of the evening..." he said. I want to share with you a combination of that meditation and some self-hypnosis for some great effect.
This technique is a step by step guide that combines self-hypnosis and some self-inner guidance with the idea of balancing your chakras. Now it is not really important to know what your chakras are - in brief, they are regarded as central energy points in your body in Eastern medicine and philosophy. They have certain colours associated with them that are going to be integrated into this technique within your mind.
I know it made me feel wonderfully energised, refreshed and very well balanced afterwards.
Step One: Find a place where you are not going to be disturbed for a while and allow you eyelids to close. Imagine that as you close your eyelids, they melt and relax into your face and begin to send relaxation throughout your body.
Create some expectation; we all know how hypnotic expectation is, don't we? Tell yourself that in a few moments youíre going to enter one of the most relaxed states that youíve ever known.
You can take yourself into self-hypnosis (if you don't know how, go get my book) or use any good meditation technique or relaxation strategy that you know. Take a few moments to focus on your breathing and engage in the moment. Notice what you are thinking and feeling.
Step Two: Using your imagination, begin now to sense that you are floating on a soft cloud, almost like it is a mist that is gentle, soft, and completely supportive. It melds and moulds itself to the exact contours of your body, imagine that you settle deeply into it and take sufficient time to really develop that comfort.
Imagine that the cloud is a beautiful, soft yet strong, strawberry red colour.
Imagine that the wonderful red mist gently envelops your entire being. Sense that it is bathing you in a soft and gentle relaxation.
Let that red mist move throughout your body, drawing away anything unwanted, leaving you in a soft, peaceful state. Imagine that red colour in each and every cell of your being. Let that red mist sink into the very depths of the centre of your mind.
Spread that red all through you, reaching all the way down to the tips of your toes, all the way down to the very tips of your fingers and feel yourself in harmony with this natural red colour as your body is feeling more and more balanced and alive.
Let the red mist focus around the base of your spine. Maybe you can even imagine that your spine vibrates in harmony with red and the entire area of the lower back and spine goes into a total relaxation. When you really engage in doing this, you can create some magnificent sensations.
Imagine and sense that you are in tune with nature and all of nature is in tune with you. Breathe that red, gentle mist in and now allow a little, tiny red bird to gently glide around you, wrapping your body in a soft, red, blanket of balance and relaxation.
If you are not a fan of birds, then you can of course imagine anything else - angels or a loved one, or that the blanket wraps itself around you unaided. Choose what suits you personally.
Step Three: Having done this inside your mind, next up imagine floating on a soft, almost peach-like orange colour. Allow yourself to be in harmony with this orange (just as you were with the red) and right around the area of your abdomen there is an energy centre that vibrates with this colour of orange.
Allow this orange mist to bring this gentle softness, this natural awareness to your body and feel it almost like a sponge, absorbing and releasing anything you might need to let go of, bathing you in a soft mist of peace, relaxation and comfort. Feel and sense anything unwanted being absorbed into the mist from all the parts of your body.
Allow this orange to penetrate your body and give you peace and comfort, feel the freedom as you do this. Feel yourself relaxing more and more as this orange mist flows in and around all the parts of your abdomen. Then in whatever way you feel resonates with you the best, imagine a little orange ribbon gliding gently and gently carrying the mist over and around and through your body, your body wonderfully at ease and relaxed. Take enough time to really enjoy doing this.
Step Four: Now in your mindís eye imagine yourself floating on a yellow mist, the soft colour of lemon, beautiful, lemon yellow right there in the centre of your chest.
Take all the time you need to really be in harmony with this colour of yellow and the middle area of your body and the centre of your chest is relaxing more and more as you can imagine that area has an energy centre that vibrates to the colour yellow. Breathe in the soft yellow mist, the comfort of that gentle softness with each breath that you take really let it flow throughout you now, let it move through your entire being.
Allow your body to be at peace as the yellow mist eases and soothes your body.
Imagine that all of nature is in tune with this yellow and you are in tune with nature. Feel the freedom of the atmosphere that you are creating in your mind.
As we did previously, now imagine a silky ribbon of yellow, floating gently around you, wrapping the mist of balance and awareness around your body with a blanket of gentle, soothing tranquillity.
Breathe in the yellow velvety mist as it bathes you in a sea of peace, taking all the time you need to sense deep comfort.
Step Five: Then imagine that you are floating on a green mist, actually begin to see, sense, imagine and feel a green mist all around you, absorbing into your skin, feeling immersed, enveloped in that green mist, a beautiful colour of green. Green as lush grass.
And as you breathe in this soft, green mist the gentle softness is all around your heart, and you feel your heart begin to relax all around that area, all the way up to the area of your throat. As you relax imagine that you can feel your heart opening, opening and connecting with the world around you.
Imagine that your chest and your heart area vibrates now to the colour of green and feel the peace and the relaxation that that brings. Begin to feel this green bringing the relaxation all through your body, gentle softness, this wonderful green colour.
Anything unwanted around your heart is being absorbed by that green, floating it away, drawing it away, leaving only peace, balance and comfort in its place. Each time that you breathe in the mist of the green, imagine and feel your body becoming even more limp, loose, safe, and comfortable.
Feel the green cleansing and freeing you, allowing your body to work in perfect harmony with nature just as it was intended to do. Then imagine a soft, silky green ribbon, floating around you... as with the previous steps.
Step Six: Ok, so now just imagine yourself floating on a mist of blue. Just engage your mind in that idea that you are gently floating peacefully on this beautiful blue colour. While doing that, allow your throat and your neck relax all the way up through the back of your neck and your throat and your neck are feeling calm and relaxed.
Breathe in the blue air and feel it drifting and floating throughout your entire body. Allow this gentle blue mist to draw up and soften and balance all the muscles in your body. Think that your body is at peace as the blue mist works through it and soothes it.
Imagine that the blue mist carries takes away anything unwanted, leaving only comfort, ease and safety.
Once again, imagine that all of nature is in tune with blue and you are in tune with nature. Your body has been perfectly designed to work in harmony with nature and so let all the natural processes of just 'being' occur for you while you are doing this.
Feel the comfort increasing within you as the blue mist fills every cell and every muscle and now imagine that silky ribbon, floating around your body, gently touching your body with a blanket of blue mist, bathing you in a sea of total relaxation.
Step Seven: Finally, imagine yourself floating on a misty cloud of violet, a beautiful violet-rosy colour, a very soft combination that creates a nice lavender colour.
Imagine that the soft colour of violet, that very soft purple, penetrates your body and allow yourself to go deeper into your own mind. Imagine that you draw this purple into your body. Feel that beautiful colour bringing you serenity and peace.
Ensure that you feel safe and comfortable on this beautiful soft purple mist. Tune into nature, tune into this natural feeling with this violet colour you are in and begin to breathe in the gentle violet mist. Breathe it in and feel the muscles of your mind working in harmony with the way that nature intended.
Feel yourself totally relaxed, feeling the wonderful things that are happening within your body at this moment.
Step Eight: Now inside your mind, imagine a combination of all the colours you have been thinking of throughout this technique form a rainbow and surround you. Imagine that they combine to form a beautiful white light, purifying, cleansing, filling your body and your mind with the glorious sense of comfort, rejuvenation and balance.
Right there at the top of your head, bring that light in, a beautiful clear bright light, floating all the way down through your entire body, filling all the spaces between all of the cells, bringing you the comfort of knowing that you deserve to have the experience of a peaceful, balanced, energised life.
Step Nine: Now allow yourself to be completely immersed in this beautiful rainbow of the energy of life, you allow your mind and your body to be very receptive, very open to creating the experience that you want and that you deserve.
Bask in the colours for as long as you like.
Step Ten: When you are ready, you can allow yourself to come back to the awareness of the place that you are in. Tell yourself that when you open your eyes, you feel very balanced, very balanced and energized. Then open your eyes, wiggle your fingers and toes, reacquaint with your surroundings and enjoy being more balanced and refreshed.
Take some time to really balance yourself and get recharged in this way - it is so lovely to do so.
