First, we need to realize that we are fine tuning the
physical,astral, and causal bodies when we meditate.
We understand quite easily the healing of the body;
however, we have a somewhat lesser understanding
of the other two bodies involved.
We begin to work with the energy centers in the
physical and astral bodies when we perform our
yoga postures and meditations. We should realize
that we are sending energy to body parts and
chakras (energy centers). The object of the yogi is
to awaken the cerebrolspinal centers in the
cerebrolspinal axis (spine). Energy centers in the spine.
Let me show you the location of the chakras.
The seventh center, called the "thousand petal lotus,"
in the brain is the seat of Infinite Consciousness and is
located at the top of the head.
The sixth center is called the Third Eye, the polar opposite
of the Medulla Oblangata. The physical eyes of the yogi
should be focused at the third eye during meditation.
(The point between the eyebrows).
The fifth chakra is by the throat, and represents
The fourth chakra is the heart center.
The third energy center is the Solar Plexus representing
fire and ego. This is a very large center of nerves and
the core energy here is very strong.
The second chakra is three fingers above the naval.
The first chakra is the root center at the base of the
spine representing self-preservation.
Now that we know the chakras ie. root, naval, solar
plexus, heart, throat, third eye, thousand petal lotus,
we can begin to do the Om Chakra Meditation.
Om represents the cosmic vibration that is within every
created thing. ( We will go into more detail about Om in
a future discussion.) Right now, we will vocally say "OM"
seven times on each chakra, beginning at the root chakra
and going up the spinal column.
At the top of the head
where the thousand petal lotus is located, we will say
Om seven times and then descend the cerebrospinal
column in reverse order of chakras, vocally saying Om
seven times on each chakra center.
Please note, that you should not rush or uncomfortably
slow down the saying of Om. Feel relaxed in a meditation
posture and allow the Om to resonate throughout the room.
Some devotees find this meditation to be quite rewarding
and have experienced a greater feeling of well being in this
