Opening the Chakras for Deeper Intuition

Not scheduled at this time.

with Nayaswami Diksha

Intuition is the power within us to tune into the high wisdom of our soul. The chakras are the “gates” within the astral spine that allow our energy to flow upward toward the seat of highest awareness—or outward through the physical body.

To have enough energy directed toward higher consciousness to bring true intuition, the doorways of the chakras need to be appropriately balanced to help us.

Within each chakra, energy can be directed in positive or negative ways. For example, the flowing quality of the second chakra can be experienced as creativity (positive), or as the tendency to be too wishy-washy and fickle (negative). As we learn to change our attitudes and redirect our energy upward, we’ll be able to access our intuition and get clear guidance.

When our energy is uplifted in the spine we begin to approach divine consciousness. But in the beginning of our spiritual quest, we encounter what might be called “gates” or “doors” that need to be unlocked.” Swami Kriyananda

Nayaswami Diksha leads you in a guided chakra meditation:

You’ll learn and experience:

  • How to use the chakras to work with the subtle energy
  • Right attitudes for deeper intuition
  • How to bring forth your soul nature and highest potential
  • Deep listening and trusting your intuition

By the development of intuition one can outgrow the law of cause and effect in one’s own life. Intuition tunes the mental radio so that it can intercept all vibrations of future happenings.

You can access deeper intuition when there is harmonious flow of energy within you, when all the chakras work in cooperation with life, and not against it. This weekend will help you take steps to feel part of a greater reality and to experience your highest potential.

As part of your weekend program, you will receive:

  • Chakras for Starters, book by Savitri Simpson.
  • How to Know and Trust Your Inner Guidance—CD by Diksha McCord

Try this practice:

Sit upright and relax your body.

Begin at the coccyx center, at the base of the spine and chant AUM there. Move up through each chakra chanting AUM and trying to feel the energy at the chakra. Visualize each chakra as a lotus flower facing downward, and as you chant AUM at the chakra, visualize the petals of the lotus flower at that chakra turning to face upward. When you reach the point between the eyebrows, concentrate there without strain. In calmness, with the energy of the chakras supporting you, offer a question you might have in the silence, listen inwardly for an answer.
