What does it mean to be centered?
Most would say that when they feel centered, they can sense the entirety of their being and it feels intact, poised, collected, or aligned. We could use any number of terms that refer to some sort of equilibrium.
If I were to invite you to center yourself, most likely you would straighten your back, withdraw your focus from exterior distractions, and feel your presence from the inside out. You may, consciously or unconsciously, be using the Central Channel as your guide.
All that you are… every cell, every heartbeat, every joy, every disappointment, every thought, and every revelation is made manifest and expressed as a result of your Central Channel. It is the energetic counterpart to your spinal cord and, similarly, it in-forms every aspect of your being.
When we lift our awareness to the higher realms of the mind, when we become uplifted and inspired, we are following the vibrational path of the Central Channel. When we ground ourselves, when we use the stability of the earth to stabilize ourselves, we are following energetic ley lines that seemingly run all the way to the earth’s center, and we feel anchored to this physical stage upon which our every experience unfolds.
The Central Channel is at once our vibrational umbilical cord and our compass. It sustains us and guides us; it forms and informs. We celebrate the light at our core in this meditation.
