For the more adventurous:
FOR CREATING OR DECREASING ENERGY
The following exercise can trigger more or less energy coming in to your body:
Take a few minutes and do the exercises above (Parts 1 and 2) when first beginning this.
Seat yourself on a chair with both feet comfortably on the floor, or sit on the floor with feet crossed and tucked in the Indian position. Hands resting on your thighs. Spine comfortably straight, not rigid, nor slumped (make sure your back is comfortable – rest against the wall if necessary). Breathe deeply, allowing your belly to fill, then your chest, pause. Exhale. Again. With your eyes closed, visualize and feel your spinal column.
See it as a cylinder with an opening at the top and bottom.
To Increase Energy:
Each one of you has instantly seen a certain size circumference. Hold it steady in your mind on your inner screen. Now, begin to play with it by increasing the opening, tilting it upwards, having it begin to spin. Visualize that there are currents everywhere around you – coming from the earth, from the people you’ve been in contact with, from people you have been thinking of. As you play with having the opening increase, feel that energy coming in – upwards through the cylinder. Pay close attention to how you feel. Do you feel better or did you bring in too much? You will know immediately. If it’s too much, simply close down the opening bit by bit until it feels right.
Where in your body does this energy need to go? Send it. Feel it reaching the area in need and spreading through it, easing any blockages or filling in the space that is empty. Each one of us visualizes uniquely – by simply doing, you learn what works for you.
To Decrease Energy:
You are in hyper-drive and need to come back to a calm center – visualizing that cylinder, see the circumference and begin to shut down the opening. You can also see the cylinder shrinking in size. Note how it feels. A good result would be a solid feeling, a grounding vs. the static sensation you were experiencing.
Another way is to take your shoes off, lay down on the floor, and simply allow the Earth to drain that feeling of being overcharged. To the Earth, it is simply energy, neither good nor bad, and it can disburse it to areas where it is needed.
This completes Rule Number 1 of Rules for Being Human. Rule 2 coming up.
