Hi everyone,

I have a question. Meditation and opening of the chakras... you can start with the root and work your way up ...but can you open the crown first and work your way down?

Its seems if you start at the crown you get a WHOLE different meditation experience, more spiritual, more vibrant or is this just a one off Ive experienced here.

I have been thinking about it for the last few days so I started at the top crown (saw it on crystalinks) and WOW it works . I felt so at peace it was very different from starting with the root.

Any comments?

Thanks MG

I generally operate from my crown so that is usually the first thing I feel open up in the morning, so yes I've gone in reverse of the Kundalini as well. A lot of times I do a kind of "skipping" sequence too. My crown will activate, then the root, then the heart, then 3rd, 6th, 2nd, and end at the 5th. I've played around skipping in other sequences too and yes they all have their own charm

Hey! Well I think I too will now do this, I do think its good to mix it up now and then and yes I agree they can all come on in different orders.

Thanks

Yes I also have started with the crown and then worked my way down to the root. Also then sending the energy back up until I reach to crown again, I must admit it does work better for me this way at times.

Depends on the feeling I am having really.


Only way to find out is experiment.

I am an inclined to agree that I think you can kinda start wherever BUT, I think it is easier if you start a the root, ... or the heart and move outwards, i also try that.

I was listening to the yoga meditation guy and he was talking about steps to opening your energy centers and such and he was starting at the root and moving up,

he basically said something like, to reach enlightenment, you have to kind of acknowledge who you are (root "I am").. you then have to "feel like it".. you know, like feel up to the task (sacral "I feel").. you then need the energy or motivation to do it (solar plexus "I do")... you need to feel love and compassion, ("heart").. then you have to able to communicate it, speak it, hear it, like being able to exchange information i guess ("thoat").. then you have to be in the right mind set for it.. which I guess says a lot because I guess it would be difficult if your mind did not wish to currently percieve the direction, perhaps your efforts are focussed elsewhere and its causing your mind to be chaotic. And then, everythings in position for you to attain enlightenment.

It was way more interesting the way he explained it but I can't find it.

I start with the root and move up because it works best for me, i think because starting at the root gives you patience.. And then I guess you could equate feelings, the next one, to many things... even physical stimuli that are distracting, next the solar plexus..

And actually alot of these things I think can be done physicaly to make the process easier... like our emotional feelings are one thing, but first, get comfortable, work on it anyway... as for energy... if you're too tired... perhaps you are able to charge yourself, but I find also hunger can ruin any meditation before it begins. Its a bad habit for me.. I try to time it to work around meals.

The love thing, I think it helps to bring some obvious connections to mind before you begin.. like pretend you dont know what love is, and just remind yourself. Very simple stuff, nothing too complex you know, not unless you are able to at the time being I suppose.

The mindset, I mean, sit quietly, relax.

Again, these things could be balancing factors to chakra meditation, but I think they are simple, easy things that can be done at any time, and they kind of help make the process more gradual.

It's your meditation, mix it up.

I do random things that I think could help bring about balance but when I do a chakra meditation specifically, i start with the root, just for the patience it brings, when I reach the heart, I picture a connector from my heart down through my lower chakras, through my feet and to the earth, and likewise, the same from my heart through my crown to the center of the universe. I like to try and visualise connections and things kinda spinning and bouncing around.

aaand I can't remember what I was going to say, I think its the heat distracting me. Again.. this could be disruptive factor to any meditation. The simple stimuli. Alright done.

Hey I dont know but my partner told me to stop doing heart meditation as he thought yes that it could alter your heart! I said but its the heart chakra not the heart I am opening. My pulse does not seem to raise and I dont get palputations so I cant see how this would alter your heart rate. Its like when we open our throat chakra we dont start talking do we? Hey I dont really know but good question.

Ive started opening my heart alot more recently and I had no ill effects yesterday at the gym lol If anything I was better at running .

Thanks, mr. Green, it is food for thought! I'm going to research it, or try to and please, if you find something on this would you let me know?
Thanks again!

I think its the endocrine system you activate during chakra meditation not the respiratory system so I cant see it altering your heart rate. Like I say my running has got a lot better, my heart feels stronger so Im not worried.

Oh, yes, I am absolutely positive that it can influence it! All the chakra work has a direct impact on the physical system, just as the opposite takes place.

You think so? Mine came up with what looks to be a possible blockage.

Ok, just to be on the safe side, what steps can i take to remedy this? I didnt dare mention it at the doctors.
What can i do aside medical help to concentrate and fix this problem?

Thank you so much.

Hi there, I didn't mean to scare you in any way. I just say the chakra system and the physical highly interact with each other. First of all I am convinced you cannot cause a fatal disease or anything by engaging in chakra meditation.

I am not sure when I read your post what your problem is. It could very well be that your medical condition already existed before you started doing chakra meditation.

It is possible to increase your heartrate for example by a simple meditation, this will also appear on the ECG. But the effect should wear off very soon.

If your heart chakra is blocked it can cause a dysfunction in the heart. In that case you can try to send more positive energy to your heart chakra.

Never work on just one chakra though. Always start from the root and work your way up. You can also try wearing a green semi-precious stone on the heart chakra (like malachite or aventurine, i am not sure if these are the right names in English..).

Maybe if you tell me more I can give you more accurate advice, but please don't worry that chakra-meditation made you ill or anything, it is possible that it just effects the measurement methods they us in hospitals.

Take care,

Love, Faith

Thanks hon. No, i'm not afraid (gulp) but i wonder if i've been tinkering the wrong way with the chakras. You and Mr Green have enlightened me quite a bit, and i will spend a couple of days concentrating on all my chakras and hopefully i can pass the stress test which i now need.


You didnt say anything wrong, and i wasnt real specific on what was happening to me.

Thank you very much and if i need a little help can i u2u you? I'm kind of worried.

Thanks on,

dg

well... I think its possible to scramble yourself, bringing on stress, which could effect heart rate.

I know some days where I feel an anticipation or restlessness, waiting for something, probably something un-desireable, I can kinda feel it in the heart, and especially before I do such things like make important phone calls or what not... I feel like this force or instibility in my heart, and its, just not good.

At first, I thought it could have been confidence related, but I realised one day that expanding my heart chakra kind of made everything easier. Its kind of hard to explain because I still don't think I've fully figured out it myself.

I do know that when I feel unstable (which can show in chakra).. that my heart rate can be irratic.

Hope that helps.

A meditation excercise, try this everyone!

This is something I do now and then in meditation.

Get comfortable, do what you gotta go to get your meditation together, perhaps a clearing of the chakras or something.

I recommend you do some variation of lying down because its a kind of restfullness that borders on sleep.

Be calm, and listen to the sounds in your environment, I find focussing on sound like this can put me to sleep. But anyways, listen for that ringing in your ears, focus in on it.

What happens next I don't need to explain, you just kinda snap out of it 45 minutes later, kind of like waking up from a nap, but your concentration is deep and you feel calm and energized.

The period of time that just went by I find sometimes I forget right away even, thinking I may have been asleep, but I know thats not the case, the whole time I'm concious.

I don't know how else to explain it but you kind of step outside of time, you're concious, but time feels like it has no progression, you dont' percieve, yet you don't not percieve, your kind of like in a void but concious.

Try it anyway, its pretty neat and confusing at first, but somehow I find focussing on this high pitch frequency kind of stabilizes me.. perhaps you tune yourself into it.

I just find it interesting that I never "wake up" but at the end of it I "snap out of it", as if someone poked me, or I lost control, or perhaps something is saying, "this far, but no further".

It is a pleasantly balancing experience anyway.

Hello , i just wanted to say how much I love you all on this thread and the positive feelings I get from it, Ive been on the ascension thread and its just so negative, I had to come home and feel the love for a while.

This thread is so peaceful and loving its amazing. I dont think I will post on the ascension thread again for a while, its not worth the bad karma sometimes is it trying to tell people the joys of the heart.

Light and love is something people must seek out and find themselves, I can not be around negativity too long now before it starts to effect me.

Hey caveman , yes I know exactly what your talking about, listening to the ringing and just going with the feelings, you do end up in a different state..you know your not asleep yet you remember nothing of where youve been but know you have gained a lot from the experience. This happens to me naturally when I meditate sometimes, it switches from meditation to this void of consiousness.

Light and Love to you all.

Do any of you mess around with crystals? I don't really do anything like that, but a while ago I was talking to someone about quartz, i kinda was able to manifest my mom to unknowingly buy a quartz necklace from a tropical island for me.


But yeah, i like wearing it.. but I haven't really done anything with it.. But I will say this..

As soon as i put around my neck, i undeniably felt something... it was almost a discomfort that I had to adjust to.. but I think it was a good discomfort, i had that impression. It feels heavy, energetically.. I think the black quartz is supposed to help with grounding, ridding yourself of negative energy and such.. but i am not certain.

I am simply saying for those who are interested... i was having a terrible day, and i was devoid of spiritual thoughts really... and then I put the black quartz necklace on for the first time and I deffinately felt something profound.

If anyone else has had experiences with such things, please share.

lol, i love you too.

You are drowning in love and repeatadly feel the need to express it, its funny, but also it shows a pretty clear quality of you.

You don't need to tell us, because i'm sure we all know already, but its nice that you decide to. Putting though into words and energy makes it more powerful I guess, so keep it up.
