We talk about the chakras a lot because healthy chakras are a very important component of your spiritual path. Chakras are those invisible spinning wheels of energy that are inside your human body, that control and rule your spiritual and emotional journey. You have these chakras in your soul, and carry them with you through each of your lifetimes. Thus, your human body now is actually much younger than your chakra systems. You’ve had these from day one. And when one of them is out of whack it is our cue from the Universe that something has happened that has taken us off our path. This is why it is so important to have healthy and balanced chakras, because by so doing, you stay on your destined course. We also know that astrology charts our destined course for us, with a different chart for every lifetime. So we actually can use chakras and astrology together to ensure we stay on our own individual destined course. And that’s exactly what we are talking about today. Because we have a host of astrological influences in play right now that are coming our way to help us ensure we stay on our destined course. And yes, you absolutely can use chakra healing during these astrological transits to maximize your true potential, and manifest your destiny.
The connection between chakras and astrology….
A lot of people think that chakras and astrology are not really connected. They are, but they aren’t. It’s kind of hard to explain. Saying chakra work and astrology work is not connected is like saying a wrench and a ruler aren’t connected. They are, but they aren’t. You may do something in your daily life that requires either a wrench, or a ruler. But once in a while you need to use them both. What they both have in common then is that they are both tools. One works better than the other on certain things, and vice versa.
Chakra and astrology work the same way. Sometimes you just do chakra healing. Sometimes you study your chart and make decisions. And sometimes you do chakra healing under certain astrological transits to accomplish a certain goal or project. That’s the connection between chakras and astrology.
This project you are working on right now is called “This Lifetime.” In order to complete that project to its fullest potential, you need tools. Two of the tools we are talking about today are the tools of chakra healing, and astrology. So let’s have a look at what the stars are saying for this phase of your current project called “This Lifetime.”
Chakra Healing and the Eclipse Portal
We’ve been talking about eclipses all month. And even better, hopefully the New Moon in Virgo Solar Eclipse planted some exciting new beginnings seeds for you. As we mentioned in these discussions, when we are in eclipse season, a portal of the Universe is opening up for us. Expect waves of information to come your way. That’s what eclipses do. They bring news, clarity, and information.
Accessing the eclipse portal is the easiest and fastest way to bring the information that keeps you on your path of destiny. This is when chakra healing and astrology work together in a really exciting way. All of your 7 chakras are receptacles of information. They hold information from all of your lifetimes, and the blueprint for This Lifetime. When the 7 chakras are aligned, you are receiving information from every Source that you need to in order for your soul to stay on your path of destiny. And when the eclipse portal is open, that information comes in faster, and in more miraculous ways.
Certain chakras work better at receiving information for you during the eclipse portal. The throat chakra will help you communicate and receive messages with authentic intent. The heart chakra will help you feel your way through the eclipse portal with love. But it is the third eye chakra and the crown chakra that really take you by the hand and plunge you into the eclipse portal all together. With the third eye chakra, you see the destiny that lays before you. With the crown chakra, you receive messages and communicate directly with the Divine about where you are on this magical path of Destiny. These experiences are enhanced during eclipse season, and through the experience of meditation. So how do you activate those third eye chakras and crown chakras and take that brave step into the eclipse portal? We’re so glad you asked.
How to do Crown Chakra and Third Eye Chakra Meditations
Meditating is very easy. You don’t need to be Deepak Chopra to meditate, or to have meditation work for you. And because information from the eclipse portal needs to be seen and heard, rather than actively manipulated by you, you need an experience to activate that information that is very quiet, and very conducive to…seeing and listening. Despite what many gurus say, there is actually no wrong way to meditate. I have been known to say that “baking cookies is my meditation.” I know someone who says her garden is her temple. Whatever puts you in a state that disconnects you from the clutter of the world, and allows you to only focus on the within, is your meditation too.
It may be gardening, or cooking for your family, or it may be just lying on the couch staring at the ceiling. You can focus on something like getting your hands in the dirt, without focusing on any “thing” at all. When I’m baking for example, often I use recipes I’ve been using for years. It’s all on autopilot, the world around me disappears while I create something both externally, and internally. Some of my best inspirations have come in these moments when there are literally no distractions around me at all.
What is your meditation? Don’t shrug off meditation just because you think you need to be a guru or Deepak Chopra to do it. You have your quiet place too. When you figure out what that is, you too can use that power to activate your third eye chakra and crown chakra, and enter the eclipse portal. Eclipse work is a little more intense than meditating while making shortbread. So here are some tips to help you get into the eclipse zone.
1. Find the right colors.
Are the violet hues from the page jumping out at you? We’re trying to help you activate those chakras. The crown chakra is symbolized by the colors violet or white, and the third eye chakra is symbolized by the color indigo. Having these colors around you, or on you in jewelery, will help to activate these chakras when you are in meditation. Candles of these colors are particularly useful, because the light will attract the energy you want as well. Flowers, soaps, even a fuzzy violet blanket to rest on are all things you can do color wise to activate these chakras. Crystals that are known to be good for this are sapphire, spirit quartz, clear quartz, and amethyst.
2. Make it a scentsual experience.
Each of the 7 chakras is connected to one of our physical senses, and even two more senses with the third eye chakra and the crown chakra. This means that each of the 7 chakras is highly sensitive to scent therapy or aromatherapy. Make your crown chakra and third eye chakra meditations a scentsual experience. Focus on the colors of the chakras as well, and bring those two senses together. So lavender scents, lilac scents, jasmine and sage are all beautiful scents to activate when working with the chakras to enter the eclipse portal.
3. Check your ego.
The most important lesson you can learn during an eclipse season is that it’s not all about you. It is, but it isn’t. Remember, eclipses bring news and information. That means you are in receiving mode, not doing mode. Leave your ego outside the eclipse portal door, and your crown chakra and third eye chakra will open nice and wide to bring that news in.
4. Love sweet love.
The most powerful crown chakra and third eye chakra meditations you will have will come from a place of love. So don’t do your meditations when you are in a bad mood. Or, do, but use the first few minutes to unwind and give those negative experiences back to your Higher Power. Then get into it!
5. Chakras, activate!
You are now in the place both visually and scentsually and hopefully with the right mindset too, to enter your meditation. Find a quiet place where you won’t be bothered, and that has no distractions. You can do it for five minutes or for an hour. Focus on the colors, on the scents, and just clear your mind. Start off by closing your eyes, and focus on first emptying your mind. That’s the hardest part. The easiest way to empty your mind when meditating is to just focus on a color. For me, violet is one of my favorite colors anyway. So I just inhale the lavender or sage that is burning, and think about that color. With practice, it doesn’t take long for the information to come. But first, empty your mind. When you do, your chakras open. Focus on that color and…wait for it.
Did you enter the eclipse portal? What did you discover?
