A Journey Through the Chakras
Presented by Lynne Patterson of Dallas Meditates
If You Can Breathe, You Can Meditate!
The Sunday Meditations at Yoga Mart are the perfect place to begin a new meditation practice or to deepen an existing one. Beginners are welcomed and encouraged to experience the benefits of Meditation for themselves.
In March, the Sunday meditations continue A Journey through the Chakras. Chakras are first mentioned as the focal points for meditation in the Vedas, ancient texts written between 1500 and 500 BCE.
What is a Chakra? The word is defined as a spinning disk or wheel and there are seven main Chakras, located at points along the Sushumna, the energy spine which runs parallel to and just to the front of the physical spine. Working with Chakras means working with energy. When the energy is balanced, the Chakras spin in a stable constant manner. Chakras may spin too fast which agitates the physical aspect associated with the Chakra, while a slowly spinning Chakra leads to depression and lethargy in the physical aspect. As energy centers, Chakras function like receivers and transformers of Prana, our life-force energy. The Chakras receive prana and convert it to frequencies of energy needed by the physical aspects associated with each Chakra.
Mar 1 - Examining the Solar Plexus Chakra
The MANIPURA or SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA is our connection to Self and answers the questions, “Who am I?” and “What am I?” The Solar Plexus Chakra supports us in learning to be responsible for ourselves.
Mar 8 - Examining the Heart Chakra
The ANAHATA or HEART Chakra is the center of our emotions. It balances the upward and downward energy flow and represents the integration of spirit and matter. Anahata evokes our capacity to love and let go, to accept our emotional challenges, and surrender to a divine plan. The Heart Chakra allows us to grow into unconditional love.
Mar 15 - Examining the Throat Chakra
The THROAT Chakra embodies our ability to communicate and speak up for what we believe in. It is connected to the authenticity that results when our thoughts, feelings, and intentions are expressed clearly and accurately. Our thoughts become things, and this potential of creation stems from the power of the Throat Chakra.
Mar 22 - Examining the Third Eye Chakra
The AJNA or THIRD EYE Chakra is the seat of intuition. The Third Eye Chakra is the energy behind our mental abilities and psychological skills. Ajna interacts with the rational mind in order to deepen our spiritual insight. The life lesson of Ajna is learning to trust our inner wisdom.
Mar 29 - Examining the Crown Chakra
The SAHASRARA or CROWN Chakra, our connection to the divine and our spiritual nature. It allows spirituality to integrate into our physical lives. Sahasrara’s lesson is learning to stay grounded in our human existence while remaining opened to our spiritual connection with everything that is.
Apr 5 - Putting the Chakras Together
This final meditation revisits each chakra and examines how they connect to each other and to our physical existence. From feeling stable and secure (Root Chakra) to finding our connection to the divine (Crown Chakra), each Chakra provides us with a lesson to be learned.
