Reading Your Energy Body

The Chakra Body

The term chakra refers to one of seven energy centers in the human body, each reflecting specific vibrations.  As a clairvoyant reader and healer the information I see in a person’s aura is connected to these energy centers.  They reflect the area of your life that is being drawn to attention for healing.  Getting to know your chakras is like looking at a map of your spiritual guidance as reflected by the body.  When you feel a sensation in your body such as tingling or tension, whether it is pleasurable or uncomfortable, it is an indicator that there is something your spirit is trying to draw to your attention.  The chakra association can help you interpret the message your energy body is speaking. Chakras vibrate subtly different information to different teachers.   The following list is my understanding of the chakras which can always be found through a link on my FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page.

Seventh chakra (crown) is our connection with the Spirit/God.  It contains information on how we show ourselves to the world (our persona) and the energy of understanding.

Sixth chakra (brow) is where we experience our intuitive guidance and analytical mind.  Here we see, imagine and have knowledge. It is from here that we see ourselves in the world relative to others.

Fifth chakra (throat) is our communication space, how we express ourselves.

Fourth chakra (heart) is where we give and receive love.  It vibrates the energy of affinity for others and the Self.

Third chakra (solar plexus) is our core personal power.  It is where we experience self-worth and activate will (how life force energy is manifested into physical form).

Second chakra (abdomen) is where our creation energy lives.  It contains our emotions, sexual energy and capacity for manifestation.

First chakra (root – base of spine) is where we ground to the earth.  It holds the energies of safety, security and our basic food/shelter survival needs.

The Power to Heal Yourself

In recent generations of human evolution we have grown more and more distant from the messages offered by our body and spirit.  Demands on our time, the drone of city life and our constant interaction with people we do not know, have resulted in us shutting down certain levels of perception. We do this as an act of self-preservation, in order to avoid feeling bombarded and overwhelmed with these sensations when making our way through everyday life.  This sensory awareness may result in physical and emotional indicators that cannot be explained.  Western civilization has given us clinical names and labels, such as depression and anxiety, for the mystery symptoms experienced by large numbers of people.  While the symptoms have both physical and spiritual origins, on a spirit level they are signs of the oversaturation of a person’s aura with the energies of others.  

Without healthy boundaries, the aura of highly intuitive people is like a sponge absorbing our surroundings.  We feel the energy of the unhappy driver behind us, an angry co-worker or bitter words said between husband and wife at the grocery store.  Over time, the aura, our filter of the world, meant to be the beginning and end point of our body-spirit signature, gets congested.  If our energetic filter is not being cleaned out regularly, like bacteria built up in a sponge, it gets stinky and is less effective at its job.  The consciousness of our times demands development of skills to create healthy boundaries for ourselves and experience inner peace.  

It is an act of self-healing to release energy that is not ours from our space.  To set our space each day is preventative medicine for our energetic body. When we cultivate these skills within ourselves, we claim our capacity to heal.  It takes less than 15 minutes to clean out your aura at the beginning or end of each day.  Here’s one way: 

Visualize a tree trunk attached to the base of your spine and rooted into the center of the earth.  Own it by writing your name on it and bring it into present time adding today’s date.  Include a switch or button, one that you can set to “full release.” Notice anything in your aura bubble that is no longer serving you, watch it release down the tree trunk.  This energy is simply changing form, not causing any harm to the planet or others.  Then set your intention for the day.  Imagine the aura bubble around your body as complete, without any holes or gaps, give it a new color.  Fill in your energetic body with a positive vibration of your choice, to set the tone of your day.  Place protection roses on the outside of your aura in the six directions: in front, behind, right, left, above and below.  Step into your day from a point of inner peace!

Vampire Energy

Natalie —  October 9, 2010 — 6 Comments

The vampire is a human who feeds off the life force of other humans.  It needs the blood of another human to survive.  It cannot generate its own energy or be satisfied by the energy sources other human’s use to fuel their life.  In the myth, once bitten by a vampire you become one. The change is not physically noticeable but occurs on a deep cellular level.  The weakness one experiences from having their life force drained is so powerful, the only path to replenish it is through drawing on the energy of another who has not been tainted by the same form of depletion.

Energy vampires are not a myth, which is why we are so curious about the mythical vampire.  After spending time with an energy sucker you feel drained, exhausted, depleted.  Yet while you were with them you felt magnetically attracted in a way that was hard to resist.  The vampire is particularly seductive because we feel the vacuum within the person and want to help them heal.  This archetype is played out on TV and in movies, using stories that intertwine vampires with romance, love that is secretly destructive.  The stories connect us to the familiar experience of being in a partnership that is charismatically hard to break free from but depleting, one that steals energy from us.  In relationship with a vampire we gain a sense of being needed.  The power to fulfill the need of another, provide life sustaining energy, is exceptionally seductive. 

From the perspective of our energetic body, the vampire often taps into our third chakra (solar plexus) the center of our personal power.  This cord plugged into our belly siphons off energy for the vampire’s use.  There are many past experiences that can make us receptive to vampirism, such as wounds to our sense of empowerment.  It may be a belief that to love one must give of themselves limitlessly.  It may be we had a parent that was a vampire and we allowed them to use our life force to insure that our needs would be met.  Or we were taught that “no” was not an acceptable answer when our boundaries were being violated.  The vampire is a very dynamic persona.  In order to get agreement from those who allow them to consume, they must quietly create a tantalizing allure to ensnare their prey.  Or charismatically demand the attention of a room being interesting but not at all interested in the thoughts or experiences of others.

As we become aware of the energy vampires in our lives or the way we vampire the energy of others, we can reframe our boundaries and fill our own cup without taking energy from others.  The vampire will not die if we refuse to give them our energy.  Conversely, if you notice your neediness responded to as a form of vampirism; know that you will not die if others withhold their energy.  The death is mythical.  The vampire archetype will find another energy source or learn a healthier way to sustain itself.  By applying new relationship skills and owning our energetic space we give others and ourselves the gift of reciprocal energy exchange. 

In the moment when you feel depleted by a certain interaction or you sense a person in your life is worn out from your contact, pause.  This awareness provides an opportunity to practice a new response.    Visualize a protection rose the size of a STOP sign between you and the vampire.  See the stem of the rose rooted deeply into the earth.  And ask the rose to be a filter between your two energies, only allowing that which is neutral and positive to come your way.  On the otherhand, if you notice yourself pulling on another’s energy, activate the “golden sun” tool.  Imagine a large ball of golden light just above your head, larger than your aura bubble.  In the center of that golden sun see a magnet that draws your energy back to you from any place, person or project where you have left it.  See the golden sun fill with your own vibration. When it is full, reach up, pop it and watch it run down into your body like honey, filling up every cell of your physical body then overflow into every atom of your aura.  Experience yourself resting in the sense of being full, no longer needing to consume energy from another.  When you are full and have activated healthy boundaries the vampire archetype is neutralized.

Shame Detox

Natalie —  September 8, 2010 — 7 Comments

Shame is powerful and toxic.  It is a form of control through judgment, a way of dictating what makes us worthy of love.  Shame seeks to alter our behaviors through sending an energy current into our aura that invokes a sense of rejection, punishment, dirtiness, imperfection, being wrong, having shown an ugly face of humanity, crossed a taboo, revealed a secret, been inappropriate or weak to our animal instinct rather than shown civility.  It may even suggest that our physical attributes or character traits are flawed, too fully revealed for the comfort of another.  We can accept the shame into our sense of self, engage in a power struggle in order to defend ourselves or learn to be neutral to outside judgment. 

When we feel shame for our words, actions or physical body it is a form of poison.  The energy enters our aura with a signature of self-rejection, even self-hatred.  Our physical and spiritual bodies absorb the toxic message and move farther away from peace.  In balance, our inner guidance is meant to be finely tuned to the needs of our authentic self.  When we hide or suppress our authentic self we detach from our intuitive truth.  Then our physical body responds chemically to the sensations of stress, tension and fear that are created in response to the toxicity of shame.  On both the physical and mental level, barriers are built to hearing our spiritual guidance.

Shame is commonly used to rear children to fit into social structure and invoke a sense of morality.  This programs us to feel guilt for thoughts or activities we were taught are shameful, even when there is not another person present to judge us.  Abusers use shame to emotionally manipulate their victims.  They claim betrayal if the victim reveals the abuse; energetically turning it around to make the victim feel responsible for their abuse.  Use of shame and guilt to control human behavior wounds and suppresses the light aspects of our nature along with the shadow aspects.  A healthier way to establish a sense of moral guidance or socially appropriate boundaries is to acknowledge the behavior or words as valid while expressing that they make the witness or recipient feel uncomfortable.  In this scenario, the person responding takes responsibility for their own feelings and communicates their boundaries without punishing the other or trying to control the situation.

When presented with the energy of shame as a conscious adult, its impact depends on the person delivering it and whether it hits us where we have a prior wound from shame.  It may feel good to openly communicate that whatever is being judged in us is perfectly acceptable.  But we also have the option to go beyond sending a return-volley of energy in the power struggle.  When we heal wounds from past shame, we can become unscathed by other’s judgments and even find humor in their attempts to control. We heal these wounds through self-love and the help of others experienced in shifting outdated behaviors and belief systems.  Clairvoyant reading is one path to identify the wounds from shame and heal our energetic body from layers of shame based suppression.  Ultimately when we detoxify our lives we are healing future generations and stopping the cycle of abuse.
