We are going to switch gears a little bit today to touch on another area that you will want to engage when you are on your path of enlightenment. That area is the area of chakra cleansing.
To many, this is an area that is confusing or seems so difficult that most people don’t even bother to try because it seems too far “out there”. But the truth is, chakra work is not only easy, but it can be the most enjoyable tool that you use when you are using the power of astrology to harness miracles. Chakra work is about using the energy forces that are available to you from the Universe, so you don’t need to be a student of Deepak Chopra or a philosopher of Sanscrit wisdom in order to truly realize the potential that your chakra centers have for you.
You don’t need much to get started. A pendulum is a great starter tool because pendulums are visual manifestations of the energy fields around us. When you use one, you can literally see the direction(s) the energy flows.
Want a pendulum? Here’s the Astrology Answers Chakra Pendulum.
You’ll also need time; anywhere between 30 seconds to 30 minutes. I keep a pendulum in my purse and you would not believe how often I use it on the go! So a pendulum, 30 seconds, and a brief understanding of how chakras work is all you need to harness success from the chakra centers that you have in your soul right this very second. And that understanding part? We’re going to knock that out of the park right now, so let’s get to it!
We each have 7 chakra centers in our bodies. These centers are energy centers. Aligning these centers creates balance and harmony in your life, and it allows the energy of the Universe to flow freely within you. This turns your world of opportunities into a Universe of opportunities. So let’s look at your chakra centers, what the energy fields represent, and then with each chakra center, I’ll tell you how to use your pendulum to clear, align, and harness its energy.
1. Root Chakra – Red
Simply put, this chakra will work on areas relating to your human instincts and will to survive, like your basic needs, food, shelter, and your work situation. What do you do to survive, and what do you need to survive? When energy in this center is flowing freely, work and money opportunities come to you to help you meet your needs. This chakra is found in your tailbone, right at the base of your spine. Its color is red, symbolizing your drive and your motivation to get up and get moving every day.
For pendulum work, find a comfy place with your pendulum. I lie down, or sometimes just keep it in my lap if I am using it in the car. Hold it in front of you and begin asking the pendulum yes or no questions that you already know the answer to. Ask one yes question, and one no question.
For example, ask the pendulum if your name is George, and the pendulum will reveal the answer by swinging one way or another. Then ask it a yes question like, “am I female” or “am I male”. Again, you will get your yes answer. Now you have calibrated your pendulum to tell you what yes and no mean, and so we will skip this step with the other chakras.
Now, ask your pendulum yes or no questions about your finances. Should you leave your job? Should you talk to your boss about a promotion? The pendulum never lies, and as you ask, close your eyes and clear your mind and the energy forces from the pendulum will move within you. You can also meditate simply on the color red while your pendulum is swinging to get even more clear answers.
2. Sacral Chakra – Orange
This chakra is found in your lower abdomen and is the orange chakra. This chakra is about your connection to others, and it is found in your pelvis so it also rules your sexuality. Relationship questions can be answered by your pendulum when you are working on your sacral chakra. Meditate on the color orange and focus on issues of abundance, the things that bring you pleasure, the elements of life that give you joy with other people. New experiences as well are ruled by this chakra.
As you meditate on this color and these matters, ask your pendulum the relationship questions that you are curious about. Remember, you can only ask your pendulum yes or no questions, so be clear and very precise when you ask. Questions like, “Is he the one?” or “Is my friend trustworthy?” or “Should I go on a trip this month?” can all be asked to harness the power of the sacral chakra.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow
This is your “gut” chakra. This is the chakra that gives you gut feelings about your self-worth when you are out and about. You want this area of your body to be relaxed and loose, not tight and all jammed up. If you feel tight, you may be experiencing self-esteem issues and you will want to continue to work on this chakra center until these feelings go away. This chakra is in the center of our core, so it determines our confidence level, our sense of self-worth, and our level of self-esteem. When it is in the tank, you can feel a tightness all over your body. Those feelings often occur when we are experiencing fear that is not based in reality. So if you are worried about something or fear that your self-worth isn’t high enough to merit a life reward, do some solar plexus work.
Ask your pendulum “is it true” questions. “Is it true that this experience is real?” “Is it true that this person really doesn’t like me?” “Is it true that I knocked that presentation out of the park?” The pendulum never lies, so trust it, even when your fears try to talk you down off a happy place. Aligning this chakra will help you feel more in control of your day to day living. And who doesn’t want that?
4. Heart Chakra – Green
Ah yes, our love center. And you can imagine where this chakra is located. Just above the abdomen and all throughout your chest area is this lovely green center that helps you feel and enjoy love. Meditating on the color green when you are performing your pendulum work will really help you focus on the questions you want to ask. Again we can ask questions about our relationships, but as opposed to the sacral chakra, we can ask some deeper, heart-centered questions here. Will this person bring me inner peace? Is this person the one? Should I go on this date tonight? Should I have “The Talk” tonight?
You also need to remember to pay attention to the answers. Don’t ignore them. Follow the advice of the pendulum and your chakra centers will align accordingly. When the heart chakra is tanking, we have a hard time in the world. We become angry, irritable, cranky, and we can’t function in relationships well. When it is aligned, the love that our hearts need to survive finds its way to us! So again, don’t ignore the pendulum if it doesn’t say what you want it to! Align that chakra and the bounty of love will find its way.
5. Throat Chakra – Blue
You speak with your voice, and your voice comes from your throat, so guess what the throat chakra rules? If you guessed communication, you are right. When this center is aligned, you are able to not only speak messages of truth, but receive them as well! This chakra is about communication, speaking the truth, receiving the truth, and expressing yourself as clearly as possible. This is not necessarily a speaking thing either, this touches communication in all forms. A weak throat chakra will have you feeling too frazzled to write a paper or even send an email some days. When it is strong, you can take on the world with your voice alone.
Pendulum work by meditating on the color blue will help to align this chakra. You want to ask your pendulum specific questions about communication issues. “Should I talk to my boss about a promotion?” “Am I saying the right thing with my partner?” “Is my partner being honest with me about what they just told me?” Again, meditate on blue, be honest with your pendulum, and accept the answers for what they are. That is powerful information you can use on your path of enlightenment.
6. Third Eye Chakra – Indigo
This chakra is colored indigo, a dark and deep purple, or dark, dark, blue. This chakra aligns your third eye, which is located right between your two physical eyes, and gives you the blessings to see the bigger picture. This is one of your most intuitive chakras, so meditating on this color during your pendulum work will certainly bring you some psychic hunches that will surprise you. Wisdom can be found when you use this chakra, and you will also be able to make more clear decisions. Your imagination will be more focused, and you will see things in a different light when you work on this chakra center.
When using your pendulum to align this center, ask your pendulum moral questions, like are you doing the right thing with such and such, or, is this issue going to help me get further in my job? Big picture questions that the Universe has all the answers to become very clear when you work on your third eye chakra.
7. Crown Chakra – White or Violet
The crown chakra is the chakra located at the top of your head. Some people say this is violet, but for me I often find mine to be white, as do many others. The crown chakra is your source to the divine, your true connection to the light. If you visualize a little white or violet glow above your head when you are meditating, and do so for some time, with practice you become instantly connected to the Universe and everything it has to offer. It is a peaceful, still, quiet harmony, the kind you see in movies about angels and heaven and cosmic powers. This chakra aligns beauty of all kinds, the highest form of bliss imaginable.
This is also a very psychic chakra as well. Once you connect to the Divine, the Universe is your oyster. You can align this chakra by simply visualizing that white or violet halo over your head during any daily activity, with or without your pendulum. I find if I am having a stressful moment, or even arguing with someone, I picture that halo and the stress literally melts away. Why? This chakra is about bliss, and nothing else.
So when working with your pendulum, visualize these things that will make you happiest and bring you your deepest bliss. Ask questions like, should I do this, should I do that, is this the best choice, is this the best job, is this the best person for me? Questions that relate to things that will bring you direct bliss will help you align this chakra, and align your path of enlightenment and bring you miracles. Do enjoy!
