The Nature of Chakras

Click on the movie to activate and then click the play button

Chakra means Wheel in Sanskrit

The body has spinning energy centers that look like spinning wheels and are called Chakras. The seven main chakras are described as being aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each chakra is linked to sound, light and associated with a certain color, multiple specific functions, an aspect of consciousness, a classical element and other distinguishing characteristics.

The chakras are thought to vitalise the physical body and to be associated with interactions of both a physical and mental nature.

The Mind Makes It Matter

Just as the film in a projector transforms light into the movie we observe on the screen, the ideas imprinted in the mind convert the one light of Source into the rainbow of frequencies we experience as life. As we look at the world around us, we see a multicolored projection of our inner self. The frequencies of life we are attracted to represent the aspects of ourselves we are most comforable with. The frequencies we are not attracted to remind us of the aspects of ourselves we've yet to embrace.

Change our ideas - the mind's film - and everything changes. When we stop identifying with our ideas altogether, the film dissolves completely, allowing light to move through us without resistance. We become full-spectrum beings - holographic focal points of the sun - radiating the light of God into the world. When things no longer matter, life once again becomes light.

Choosing to Bless

"The practice of blessing is a simple way to develop a constantly centered awareness. It is also a tool for growing in universal love and avoiding judgement."

Pierre Pradervand
The Gentle Art of Blessing

"If not you, who? If not now, when?" Attributed to Rabbi Hillel

It seems to me that what the world needs now is our blessing - and not just the parts that we find easy to bless. From the smallest incident, with 'that person in your street', to the biggest - where governments/corporations act in our names and we feel we have no control - we quickly jump in to judge and criticize.

I was recently reminded - when re-reading Pierre Pradervand’s words in ‘
The Gentle Art of Blessing’ - that to bless is important not only for those we bless but also for ourselves. At the same time I was feeling frustrated by my apparent inability to ‘do’ anything about the worsening situations on the planet. Then it dawned on me that to send blessings would be the most powerful thing I could do from a distance and the words contained in ‘Choosing to Bless’ were born.

“Nothing is more debilitating than to care about something you can’t do anything about…. In the long run, you cannot do anything about someone else’s vibration other than hold them in the best light you can, mentally, and then project that to them. And sometimes distance makes that much more possible than being up close to them.”Abraham-Hicks

I invite you to send light and blessings using the words in ‘Choosing to Bless’ – or create your own blessing. Send the blessing regularly, hourly or several times during your day. Share the words and the idea with others. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know that the regular habit of blessing those you don’t know and, perhaps, wouldn’t normally bless, has made a difference to their lives and to the world?

“To bless all without discrimination of any sort is the ultimate form of giving, because those you bless will never know from whence came the sudden ray of sun that burst through the clouds of their skies, and you will rarely be a witness to the sunlight in their lives.” Pierre Pradervand

The key is the Intention to bless.

It is most important to bless from the bottom of your heart, in total sincerity. This is the transforming power that heals and restores.

To begin the habit of blessing, every hour, or as often as you are able during your day, pause for a few seconds - breathe - and send these words of blessing out into the universe .....

I am at peace with the process of life.

From my heart, with unconditional love, I choose to bless rather than judge.

I bless all governments and their agencies, corporations,
all individuals, races and religions.
I bless all who find themselves victimized and oppressed.
I bless all in their peace, their courage,
their joy, their goodness,
their abundance, their compassion,
their understanding.

May all be blessed with peace in their hearts.

I am grateful for the blessings of the Universe.

And so it is.

I would love to hear from you and to know how the habit of blessing on a regular basis is making a difference.

May you be blessed with all things good
In all ways
With love, joy, peace and abundant blessings
Jane :)
