We teach a little known method of balancing chakras to help bring you into a deeper state of inner harmony and outer confidence. Based on over 40 years of teaching Inner Light-Fire meditation (Agni Yoga), this work can help you achieve a greater sense of joy, peace, and ease.
Thousands of people have used these tools to release stress, tap into their healing and creative abilities and achieve inner peace.
Balancing chakras is an active process. You can't just have this work done to you while you passively lie on a massage table. It takes your full participation, your willingness to heal and change your life.
We help you cleanse your chakras (energy centers) and then let their light and consciousness uplift your whole body-mind. As these chakras are cleansed, they naturally support each other and your overall wellness.
Chakras are focal points within our body. For most people, they are dormant or functioning at a low level. But when cleansed and vitalized, they are gateways to healing and awakening.
Each chakra has a unique role. The role corresponds to the area of the body where each one is located. Or rather, it's actually the reverse: each part of the body functions as it does because of the chakra nearby.
Here is an example:
The chakra in front of spine's base, sometimes called the "root chakra" is related to your sexuality and physical aliveness. Developmentally, this chakra provides the energy and consciousness for the formation of your sexual organs and supplies the power for cells to generate throughout your body.
The chakra in the center of the brain is about insight, understanding, and clarity of mind. Developmentally, it is responsible for the energy and consciousness that builds and maintains your brain. In many people, this chakra is hardly functioning or blocked, and they can get caught up in unhealthy thinking and confusion. But as it is purified and awakened, they tap into inner knowing, insight, and clear thinking.
For the chakras to function optimally, they need to be purified to function at a higher vibratory level. This purification can happen naturally as we evolve, and we become wiser, more loving, and generous.
Certain practices, such as those we teach, speed up this process. Two methods are particularly valuable.
One is to work with energy healers to free up the energy in your body and energy centers.
The other is to use your mind to tap into the power of Inner Light-Fire. This method, Inner Light-Fire Meditation, teaches you how to cleanse your body, your chakras and your energy field.
If you would like to experience a sample of how this works, here is a guided meditation to cleanse and awaken your Heart chakra.
Once the centers are cleansed and functioning as sources of pure energy and consciousness (see below), these chakras can also harmonize more effectively with each other.
Why is it important to learn the art of balancing chakras? Here are just a few examples of why this is valuable:
How Many Chakras Are There?
In my experience and perception, there are many, many chakras, although some are more vital than others. The most popular chakra system comes to us from India, and describes 7 chakras, although sometimes their locations and functions vary, depending on the source.
Other systems offer a different number and different locations. My primary training comes from Russell Paul Schofield, who founded the School of Actualism with his wife, Carol Ann Schofield. The method is sometimes called Agni Yoga. In this approach students first learn to work with 7 chakras, but soon learn of additional ones that are appropriate to living in the world at this time..
What Are Some Key Chakras? What Do They Do?
Please note: The following information is based on my training experience. The only way to verify this information is for you to do the work of balancing chakras and experiencing how they function for you.
Many people talk about cleansing and balancing chakras, and their information comes from books or teachers. There is a vast difference between having information about and doing the work of transformation. Few have gone beyond the mental conceptual realm (about) to actually doing the work.!
Each chakra is both a place to experience a pure aspect of your true self and a source for pure life energy. The short summaries below give only a small taste of what each chakra is and how your chakras can help you.
The chakras are located along a central channel that runs from above your head to below your feel. It is centered both front to back and left to right. Along this axis, here are the major chakras, starting at the top of the head:
The Crown Chakra, located half in and half out the top of your head, helps uplift and transform consciousness states. When blocked, we can experience negativity and depression. When cleansed, we feel open, spontaneous, and free.
The Head Chakra, in the middle of the brain, helps us understand. When blocked, we can experience confusion, anxiety. and fear, or feel "out of it." When cleansed, we have a deeper understanding and insight into our own lives and that of other people.
The Throat Chakra helps us express ourselves verbally and practically, by manifesting our goals in the world. When blocked, we can't express ourselves or ground ourselves. When cleansed, we live creatively and in the moment and can respond to situations appropriately.
The Heart Chakra is in the center of the chest. When blocked, our feelings are blocked, we are not in touch with our emotions and can't understand what others are feeling. We may be "caught in our heads." Or we are stuck in uncomfortable feelings with no way out. When purified, this chakra helps us express personal love in relationships.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is located in the upper abdomen. It is all about communication and relates to our nervous system. When blocked, our perception is blocked, we can be anxious and stressed. When cleansed ,we are relaxed, perceptive, and energized.
Some systems speak of two chakras related to sexuality and power. One is generally located in the upper part of the pelvis, just below the navel. The other one, already mentioned, is at the base of the pelvis. When these are blocked, we feel stuck and ungrounded and defenseless. When cleansed, we feel alive, enthusiastic, expressive, and healthy.
At our core, we are beings of limitless light and fire.
Our true nature is love and light. Our bodies register this divinity in various ways, but the two strongest are Love and Light.
We register love through our emotional nature, and especially through the Heart chakra and physical heart.
We register light primarily through our senses and brain.
Throughout the ages mystics and teachers have had direct experiences with the divine. They called it called it many names or preferred to keep it nameless to signify that it is beyond words, beyond descriptions.
Awakening or enlightenment is experiencing the Light, the Light of the divine, which is at the core of everyone and everything.
Methods of working with this Light have been taught in many cultures and spiritual traditions. The techniques I teach my students, using Inner Light-Fire, is sometimes referred to as Agni Yoga Meditation.
We teach a modern, 21st century version of these teachings, stripped of a lot of archaic and culture specific references. It is a practical, step-by-step way to learn to purify and balance chakras.
Inner Light-Fire can also be experienced through the hands of a practitioner. In this case it is often called "energy." Energy healing practices, go by many names, such as Reiki or Pranic Healing or Therapeutic Touch. Our own form of hands on energy healing is called Consciousness Clearing.
When personal meditation with Inner Light-Fire is combined with support from a trained energy healer, remarkable changes can happen quickly. This inside-out and outside-in combination is a powerful and effective transformational method for healing, awakening and balancing chakras.
If you haven't tried it, experience how this method works on yourself by going to Awakening and Purifying Your Heart Center.
