Now that we’ve incorporated body and ground into the practice, we can rely on them for the stability required to work with the subtle energy sciences. This week’s meditations bring awareness to the stream of energy that moves along the spine connecting our energy centers (chakras) to higher levels of consciousness. Similarly, the flower in the photo above has a root system which provides support as it aspires toward the sun. It also makes us of its stem, not only for tremendous support, but also as an efficient mechanism for nutrient exchange.
Our central channel has a similar design and purpose; it is our core within. It energetically connects the above to the below, and vice versa. Our backbone and spinal cord are the dense physical counterparts of central channel… supporting energy and information flow. The ground and alignment we establish through meditation allow for our energetic altitude.
