Visualizations for Energy Enhancement
Visualizations for Energy Enhancement
Sometimes there are physical reasons for being fatigued, and troubled with energy depletion. There is a new article in the articles section, called “Wake Up from Chronic Fatigue” under the green logo, that tells what toxins, biochemical imbalances, or hidden allergies might be contributing to some of these difficulties, and gives a few suggestions for how to resolve them.
Without addressing health issues, the following discussion explores a few ways to access the gifts of enthusiasm, creativity, and inner peace. You can let your intuitive self reveal your own resource of energy enhancement.
Your Natural Spiritual Capacity
The greatest source of vital energy is our connection to our spiritual belief system. By whatever name we call it, it is whatever we think may exist beyond our immediate concerns, within a larger context that we suspect might be there.
No matter what tools or meditation systems we use for tuning in, the ultimate source of energy enhancement comes from our perception of what must have originally infused us with our life-force energy, and the natural impulses and feelings that we feel. The following discussion will touch upon a few ways to explore and perhaps to experience this.
If you ever feel like asking about your position within the cosmic system, your biofield can guide you toward a perception of that connection.
Once you let yourself become conscious of the contrast between your intuitive experiences and your every-day adaptive “ordinary” self, this could unify possible diversity between what you see and what you feel. In our cultural consensus this disparity is rarely mentioned, but it simmers under the surface, subliminally influencing our interpretation of events and situations.
Many people confuse religion with spirituality, thinking that if you don’t go to church or temple, then spiritualty isn’t an issue. If you do go to church, it may be more a social than spiritual experience. Your intuitive self says wait a minute. There’s something else. Why do I suspect that there might be some organizing process that connects things? Who designed the intricate beauty of flowers? Are there reasons for what’s happening, even if it doesn’t make sense? What was here before the universe began?
These are natural questions, and actually they are spiritual questions. They come from our curiosity about the rhythms and systems we perceive, and the value we ascribe to our hunches, and strange moments of knowing something unexpectedly, without knowing that we knew.
These tid-bits of recognition can light up our chakras, the invisible lights of bioenergy that connect us, not only to ourselves, but to each other.
Your seventh chakra is on top of your head, the beam that tunes you in to vibrational perceptions beyond yourself. The seventh goes through the auric spheres that surround you, and lead up to all your upper chakras, the 9th, 10th. 11th, and all the way up to the 12th.
The Twelfth chakra is the most intense vibrational frequency that you can reach, from the physical realm that earth beings have been gifted to perceive. There are times when we actually do go beyond the twelfth, often in a psychedelic experience, or in a near-death experience.
In ordinary every day life, the twelfth is considered the last layer before we reach the non-physical non-duality of an entirely different reality.
Since we are Earth beings, we focus on the seventh as our contact point with what is considered our “higher” self. It is a faster frequency, more precise and more perceptive perhaps, but not necessarily higher or better than the nurturing chakra frequencies that sustain it. This is the chakra that connects with the guidance system of the angelic realm. The eighth chakra is below our feet, and is our deepest earth-grounding. Like a tree, with roots and upper leaves, we span both of these frequencies, and coordinate them within our physical bodies.
The First chakra also grounds us, by engaging issues of survival, food, shelter, and the desire to be safe from physical harm. It is located at the base of the spine.
The second chakra is our creative biofield, focusing on pleasure, the enjoyment of physical sensations, delicious food, good sex, beauty, music, art, dance, and all forms of harmony and balance. It is in the abdomen.
The third is our ability to acknowledge strong resilient self-esteem, and to take powerful action in our own behalf. This is in the solar plexus, just at the level of the stomach, near the ziphoid process.
The fourth is our ability to give and receive love, to develop trust and share emotionally enriching relationships. It is in the upper chest, above the physical heart.
From the fifth we speak up, say what we feel and say what’s true, and cultivate effective verbal skills. This is in the throat.
The sixth is our intellectual ability, and our intuitive psychic vision,located in the center of the forehead, known also as the “third eye.”
Focusing on any of these chakras lights them up, and makes their power more fully available. This opens a deeper recognition of the potential capability we already have, in each of these areas of our lives. It makes us less likely to depend upon outside validation, and keeps us from acting from fear of what others will think of what we say and what we do.
Meditation within the chakra system takes us into the place where see ourselves as light-beings within a physical container. As we learn to function congruently with an awareness of both aspects of ourselves, our lives become enriched and balanced in a new way.
Our self-perception as light-beings is likely to lead us to the recognition of our life-force within an ambient force field, where we see ourselves within the context of a larger vibration. From there we might sense an awareness of ourselves as beings among other beings on the earth. We might also feel connected, along with them, to the universal force-field beyond earthly concerns, and see ourselves as participants in the entire system. Our chakras are showing show us an incredible capability.
To run by the matching chakra perceptions of other life forms, animals, insects and plants.
- They are grounded
- They appreciate physical pleasures
- They take action for themselves,
- They protect their babies, (or their eggs, or their seeds,)
- They express their thoughts and feelings with vocal sounds or with body language,
- They see or sense their environment, and take measures to protect against seasonal change, future shortages, and potential predators.
- Life forms all function from their conscious psychic connection, not only with each other, but with other species in their environment.
We see mutual caring among dogs, cats and horses, and there are many unusual interspecies relationships that are deeply protective and loving. During one of our recent fires in California, a dog broke away from his family as they were fleeing the fire, and he ran back to the burning house, opened the gate and freed the goats that had been left, and herded them out of the fire, at one place they ran briefly through part of the fire, and he took them all to safety. A deer joined them, and ran with them. The exhausted thirsty dog finally found his family, and brought all the goats and the deer with him, at last to rest, to be comforted, and given water.
I have observed astonishing evidence of sensitive consciousness in spiders. Knowing that, we may feel invited to realize that we can, and that we do share mutual consciousness with all beings, so that the feelings of the non-self, the “other” can be intuitively understood.
Many people question killing animals for food, as though this action were an unavoidable flaw in the system. They believe that killing animals is “bad” (less spiritual) so they eat vegetables (more spiritual). That’s a choice that works pretty well. However, the way that it has been set up, eating other life forms is the only way our ecological system can maintain balance. One who eats another living being, animal or plant, automatically honors and thanks the provider, because the food is enjoyable. This is an interactive connection, somewhat like a contract between them that is required to support the system.
The bird who catches a bug delights in the bug and enjoys it. Presumably the bug, after it recovers from shock, picks up the vibration of the bird’s appreciation. American Indians fully honored their buffalo. The eating of their meat, when it was honored, was not a spiritual violation of either the ones who killed the animal, or the animal itself. After its death, the spirit of the animal knew this, and received the blessing. The wolf who catches a rabbit enjoys eating it, and of course at first the rabbit is terrified, but it is possible that as his fear passes, he can sense and receive the vibration of the wolf’s pleasure.
This doesn’t mean that the rabbit is resigned, and condoning an abuser. The wolf is not an abuser. The wolf is enjoying his food, with harm to none. The rabbit, who automatically takes in the feelings of others, feels the vibration of the wolf. He knows there was no negative intention. When he recovers from his initial fear, he senses the wolf’s feelings. This may be a stretch, surely the act of being killed hurts, and scary beyond belief, but the awareness of a different perspective is worth considering, since interactive life forms all sense each other’s feelings.
Grazing animals bite off mouthfuls of grass with their teeth, the grass must feel panic at that moment, but it picks up the grazer’s appreciation as it is being chewed and enjoyed. Plants have feelings, just like anybody else. Eating vegetables is not very different from eating meat. Flowers get afraid when they are picked, suddenly severed from their nurturing roots, but after that they receive pleasure from us, when we tell them that we love them and admire them in our bouquet.
The Choice to be Negative
On the other hand, when something deliberately injures or insults other beings, like spraying ants or bugs with poison, or shooting a wild animal, not for food, or self defense—but just for the sensation of seeing it fall and suffer in pain, or if we’re indifferent to injustice, or if a prison guard torments a prisoner, these actions fall far outside the boundaries of the system. They violate the universal force-field that has imbued us with the life-force that has been built on love, the recognition of fairness, and the desire for respectful collaboration.
Human beings have the option to violate the basis of the galactic system because they have choices. There are times when people choose to murder thousands of innocent uninvolved people, usually to act out fear, or to prevent something, or to take something. Sometimes people feel justified in insulting or punishing people whom they believe are less important.
Interesting that animals don’t do that. Their survival depends upon having fewer choices, so they function more consistently within the system, and maintain their connection to the higher resonance of interactive harmony. By definition, they are acting from a spiritual position that many humans are attempting to achieve.
If someone kills a shrimp in front of a plant, the instrumentation that records the plant’s response shows that the plant literally winces and contracts its biofield when it senses this violation. The plant perceives that act as abuse. It will remember who did that, and will respond by withdrawing when that person comes near it later, but it continuously maintains loving concern for the people who water it, and care for it.
It may come to us as a surprise, but this plant’s response demonstrates something important. Anger at injustice is an expression of love. It is built into the life-force as a natural feeling, and experienced by all forms of life. When we act non-violently from that knowledge, and we confront the accurate target rather than a symbolic substitute, our actions continue to reinforce the universal support that surrounds us. Guilt and fear are minimized, we can become discerning, more vibrant, and more loving. This is the groundwork for our energy enhancement.
Ultimately each person who has ever hurt or injured another being will become aware of the impact of these violations, either in this lifetime or subsequent ones. This recognition comes to them not as “punishment” from some imagined authority, but from a recognition of self-awareness. By becoming more conscious of the universal vibration within themselves, people can process the event, release their remorse, and choose to make a change.
In that sense, there is no “karmic” indebtedness for past misdeeds that causes an obligation to any individual in a subsequent lifetime. Perhaps it is self-awareness that ultimately suggests the shift from one mode of behavior to another.
To fully grasp the experience that a recipient felt as a result of our unkind action, we can let ourselves walk in the other person’s moccasins. Then we feel it as that person did. We can process it, expand our sense of connection, and find the peace that comes with self-forgiveness.
Forgiveness expresses the duality inherent in our physical realty, and it also moves us toward less judgment, less focus on the good/bad reward/punishment that has been woven inextricably into our culture, where we tend to use the judgment of others as a stress-reliever.
Another way to reach a cosmically congruent state of heart is to focus on a native American medicine wheel. The medicine wheel is a tool for manifestation, and is used as a focus for healing, and for enhancing personal capabilities. At the Balancing Center we use the Ute Medicine Wheel that was given to us by the Ute Shaman, Beautiful Painted Arrow, when we first started our clinic in 1981.
To work with this wheel you begin by presenting your question or your intention to the Buffalo. She takes it to the deer, the Deer takes it up to the cougar, the Cougar takes it over to the Eagle, who flies to the lower world and then to the upper world, to engage the messengers of the universal force-field within both realms.
Below is a brief diagram and discussion. More details are shown about the traditional way to work with this medicine wheel, in Tools for Tuning In. Check the section on books, under the blue logo.
The Buffalo in the North is the one who sharpens your focus on the issue you want to work with. She helps you to sort out self-conflicting intentions you weren’t aware of. She goes with you to the Deer, in the South.
Deer listens to you. He makes sure that your request is being made from the heart. He tells you if he observes a hidden manipulation that could cause an unexpected result. After you talk about it with him, he floods you with billowing clouds of infinite love, and takes you up to the Cougar in the West.
Cougar hears you, and watches you carefully. If he sees that you are asking from full integrity, he will agree to invite your intention into the physical vibration. He takes you across to Eagle, in the East.
Eagle recognizes that the others have polished your request so fully that it does not carry mixed messages. She says, “Are you ready for this to happen?” When you say yes, she takes your image down to the earth spirits, and then she circles up into the angelic realms to contact the spirit world above. This is likely to bring about your intended result, even though it may come to you in an unexpected way.
Another form of meditation that can lead to high energy enhancement is to focus on a galactic image from the Hubble collection.
Select one of these images, and let yourself move into it as though you were there. Slide right down into it, and float in the beauty of the form. Draw the veils of light around you to absorb the flow of energy within that enormous enclosure, and the powerful force-field it contains. Stay with that for several minutes, and see what happens.
On the other hand you might decide to close out all visual stimulus and open up to sound, to beautiful music, or to specific sounds designed to reach the frequency of certain brain waves.
A very different way would be to engage your physical body in quiet muscular movement, such as yoga, or Tai Chi. Both were designed to reach inner attunement.
We can also become vibrationally attuned just by lying on the grass on a warm summer evening, watching the stars.
Transporting experiences open your awareness of subtle energy within you, and can kindle the comfort of knowing that you belong within an all-inclusive ambience of acceptance that is beyond you.
Go inside to hear the quiet. Breathe slowly and let your breath take you where you want to go. When you feel the inner quiet beginning to shift your frequency, you may sense that your cellular structures are vibrating differently. You are starting to reach an unexpected gift from within.
