Vision Clear Intention
Reflect on the ways that your thoughts create a reality this week. We can all envision how we desire to be and what we want our lives to become.
Align Your Truth
The question is, is your inner vision aligning with your external habits and actions? How is it that you wish to live your life? Remember that change doesn’t have to come once everything settles down or “becomes perfect” because it can happen anywhere and anytime. Reflect on your goals and explore whether they are realistic and soul-aligned or perfectionistic and ego-aligned. Often we’re entirely unaware of our most profound visions, which can lead to stress, anxiety, anger, and burn-out because we’re not living intentionally and consciously.
Living intentionally is about being mindful of your deepest needs and drives and honouring them. Reflect on one simple daily action you can take to make your most profound inner visions a reality this week.
8th Chakra to Channel Your Dreams
Being the Witness in our life sees us engage in our 8th Chakra a few inches above our head. Here we experience a profound union with all of Creation and the Creator. It is the “source of the sacred.” It corresponds to the Christian concept of our soul, personal and finite. Vision is so clear here.
The eighth Chakra resides within our Luminous Energy Field(LEF) and can be sensed hovering or floating above the head like a radiant golden spinning sun. We commonly see this Chakra illustrated in paintings as the light (halo) surrounding Buddha, Christ and other religious figures.
The properties of the eighth Chakra are:
Body Aspects: Architect of the body
Psychological Aspects: None
Negative Expression: This manifests through familial patterns of disease and misfortunes.
This Chakra is unaffected by the death of our body. View it like a carpenter who builds a chair and later burns it in his fireplace—the carpenter feels no loss, as he knows he can make another. The eighth Chakra acts as the template to create the physical body. Etched in its form are the imprints of disease and trauma we carry with us from one lifetime to another, which help select the parents. These imprints predispose us to learn, live, age and die by the patterns in our LEF.
At death, the eighth Chakra expands into a luminous globe. It envelops the other seven chakras in a vessel of light, which remains intact until it is time to create another body. This energy centre is linked to the archetypal domain, the original images, vision and memories that belong to the human collective.
Those whose eighth Chakra is clogged can only feel partially in their bodies—disconnected from life. On the spiritual dimension, this is the Christian place of purgatory or Buddhist bardo planes.
People who suffer an unbalanced awakening of this centre can become stuck in this realm. They can find themselves in mental institutions; maybe suffering alone in their homes. Others join bizarre pseudo-mystical cults.
The eighth Chakra corresponds to ages forty-nine to fifty-six. With a wealth of experience at our fingertips, this is a period of self-mastery and personal power. We become aware of the Witness —a self that has been present from the beginning of our spiritual journey. Now disengaged from the mind, it can behold the reason with all of its dramas without subscribing to them.
The attribute of the eighth Chakra is invisibility. Here we become aware of the Witness in our life, a self-present from the beginning of our spiritual journey. Now disengaged from the mind, it can behold the mind with all of its dramas without subscribing to them.
The Witness knows that anything that can be seen or held is not real. The Witness cleaves to the mystery and not the manifestation. The Witness perceives everything but cannot itself be perceived because it cannot be turned into an object of perception. The Witness is invisible because it cannot be beheld. We achieve invisibility by eliminating the “me” projects, and through the practice of stillness.
How can you become free of desire, hope and regret and find the Witness within?
