In her book, The Diary of a Psychic by Sonia Choquette, she shares with the reader some of the lessons that she learned from her teacher, Charlie. One of the lessons or tips that he imparts to her is that the Lord’s Prayer can be used as a way to tune the seven main chakras or energy centers with in a person.
She shares the about, but not the how.
I found it really interesting and am planning to use it as well. So I thought I’d just do a little how – to post on it 🙂
The prayer and chakra relation:
Our Father who art in Heaven = Opens the chakras
Hallowed be Thy Name = Balances the 7th chakra (the crown area, that would be the top of our heads)
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done = Balances the 3rd chakra ( the solar plexus, just below the sternum)
On Earth as it is in Heaven = Balances the 2nd chakra (the area between the base of the spine and below your navel, around the pelvic area)
Give us this day our daily bread = Balances the 1st chakra (the base of the spine, where the tail bone is)
And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us = Balances the 4th chakra (this is the heart chakra, at the center of the chest, where you would naturally put your hand when talking about the heart)
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory = Balances the 6th chakra ( the third eye, the point about 2 centimeters above the bulge between your eyebrows)
Forever, and ever Amen = Balances the 5th Chakra ( throat chakra, at your throat)
How I’d suggest to do this is to “bring your awareness” to each of the chakras as you say the lines of the prayer. Bringing awareness to me means that you bring your thoughts to a particular area where the chakra’s are situated. For example, if I am thinking about the throat chakra, I’d concentrate on my throat. I’d feel my throat.
It’s like when you have a sore throat, with the help of your nerve endings, you can feel the pain in your throat. You are brought to become aware of your throat. In this case, you need to do this without the help of a sore throat 😉
Another way is to imagine a blue light in my throat area, and concentrate on that. It does take a bit of imagination as well to do this.
If you aren’t the visual type then one way would be to state in your mind clearly, “I focus on my throat chakra”. So you’d go: “Forever, and ever Amen, as I bring my awareness to my throat chakra”.
As I am typing this, I have yet to try it. I am planning to once in the morning when I wake up and another time before going to bed; and also when I meditate. I’ll probably update this post after trying it out as this one is being scheduled end of the month…..if you are reading this though..it might mean I haven’t been good about trying it out OR I have completely forgotten that I needed to update this!!
On a separate note, I do realize that the Lord’s Prayer is considered a Christian prayer, however the words are general as it is a prayer to God. I’ve even read a total different interpretation of this prayer which includes not only God as the masculine but also His feminine energies of creativity and nature! Though I do not ever approve of forcing anything down a person’s throat (hmm…what’s with me, the throat and this post??) , if you are inclined to try it out please do! I mean…the Lord’s Prayer with the chakras..that’s already an amalgamation of two different traditions 😉
