While searching for mindset training to create more positivity in one’s life, I came across a video from Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday where she interviewed Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, the Spiritual Director and founder of Agape International Spiritual Center here in California.
(I’ve become a huge fan of his over the last few years, loving his message and the humanitarian work that his center does around the world in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.)
What he says in the video about “raising your vibration” to manifest what you desire in life is nothing new if you’re familiar with The Law Of Attraction, but the way that he says it clicked with me and now I understand on a much deeper level. It’s a short clip, so please watch:
“You cannot have what you’re not willing to become,” are his words that struck me the most.
My understanding of his message is that you’re not just wishing for something positive to happen to you if you’re wanting more success, love, or whatever it is that will make your life more enjoyable. You actually need to develop your heart and mind to a degree where you are fully able to appreciate and receive what you are wishing for. This is what is referred to as “matching the vibration”.
So how exactly do we do that? There are methods in The Law Of Attraction, that I’m honestly not that familiar with. But I like how my own mind is filling in the blanks on how to match our energy with what we desire.
After watching the video I went on a hike and then taught a meditation class at our local yoga studio. What came out of me, as I was processing and sharing, was the Chakra Meditation I have recorded for you below.
The chakras are 7 wheels of energy in Yogic subtle body anatomy that link up our physical, emotional, and mental nature. The 1st chakra is at the base of the torso, also connecting to the legs. The next 4 wheels are situated along the length of, yet in front of the spine. And the final 2 are in the head.
In the 1st chakra we experience and develop basic human needs & characteristics as well as physical integrity (lower vibration). Each higher chakra develops more relational and worldly characteristics, culminating with the crown chakra that is said to connect with spirit, and when fully developed, where we find our place the universe.
By doing this meditation, you are mindfully filling in any gaps that may be present from past trauma, rocky parenting, or any unstable/stressful situation which may have resulted stunted emotional development. Usually, base or lower vibration chakras need to be developed and “matched” before you are able to lift yourself up to a higher vibration.
Guided Chakra Meditation
It will require a lot of practice, but with time, this meditation will help you feel more whole and connected. And you’ll be to receive what you feel you truly deserve in this lifetime.
