Get a feel for chakras so you and partners recognize, cherish, coordinate and integrate them and consciously apply what they energize-–security, sex, power, love, talk, understanding and unity–-to enlighten you. Go through the exercises with partners.
PERK & PORTRAY YOUR PERINEUMS (Charge 1st Chakra)
Sit and face your partner. Touch your own palms together, thumbs on chest. Gaze into her or his eyes, bow and say, “Namaste. I honor the divine in you.”
Chant lam three times.
Rise to a kneeling to enact the Divine Parent archetype.
Say, “Close your eyes, center your consciousness between genitals and rosebud. Let your Inner Child come center stage.”
Sandwich your partner’s heart between your hands. When you breathe out, pulse cleaning energy out your right hand. As you inhale, catch the negativity you zap in your left and send it down your legs then into the earth to compost.
Tell her or him, “Feel the energy stream pass through your heart from front to back. Warm white light purges rancor and resentments toward particular people. It also purges negativity toward people in general. Feel hurts, anger, disappointments go. Release separation from other people and from me. Let muscles that held negativities relax.
“Now, Child, cleansed, appreciate the people in your life. Love, accept and fully forgive your parents and caretakers. Appreciate all people.”
Hold your partner’s head against your belly. Whisper three times, “YOU BELONG.” “I’M ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU.” “YOU’RE SAFE.” “YOU’RE HEALTHY.”
“Tell me what other reprogramming reminders–sentences that charge your sense that you belong, words that encourage you to create health, safety and security, sayings that support you as you express sensitive emotions. Tell me what to say and I’ll say it and program you with what you need to hear to feel grounded in life.”
Stand. Help your partner, close-eyed, stand before you. When she or he stands, say, “Center yourself now. Then open your eyes into mine and say what this experience was like for you.”
For the next First Chakra activation. Both of you identify with your security chakras; take turns; embody Chakra 1.
Say, “ List your QUALITIES, TRAITS, CHARACTERISTICS, AND JOB within your person’s ecology. Tell what you’re like as your safety, security and health inner voices.
“Say what, as the personification of your first chakra, you want and why. Relate what you’d do if you ruled your person all the time.
“Tell how, specifically, you’d run your person’s lovelife, if you bossed it.
“If you ruled the whole world, how would you manage humanity’s survival and well-being? Earth’s survival and health?
“Relate how you help your person and what you want her or him to appreciate you for.
“Say how your Inner Child and Inner Protectors–voices that monitor your physical well-being and safety–affect you.”
ENJOY GENITALS: ( Chakra 2)
Chant vam three times with your partner. Wave your bodies; undulate your pelvises toward each other. Then sit, eyes closed. Take turns; share your reactions to the cues below.
Recall and relive
your sexual low-point,
your sexual peak and
what you learned from each.
Open your eyes and tell each other.
Say how what you learned can help you sexualloving each other (or other partner, if you’re not lovers).
Take turns, let your sexual chakra speaks through you. In your turn, embody and enact your Sex Chakra, say what you’re like, what you need and what you’d do if you ran your person’s sex life.
Say, as Voice of Chakra 2, what you want your person to value and appreciate you for.
Discuss how you, Sexual Chakra, coordinate your sexually adventurous inner voice) and your sexually conservative voice.
Relate, Sexual Voice, how you’d dictate sex on Earth if you could.
GET GUTS: (Charge 3rd Chakra)
In this exercise, you and your partner assist Chakra 3, your power and assertiveness chakra. You activate your power chakras when you chant ram.
Together, chant “ram”. Then tell her or him, “Embody your assertive Third Chakra and say what you, as her Inner Power subperson, want for [say partner’s name] in love and sex.” Then take your turn to voice your Third Chakra.
Say, “This chakra urges us to claim our due, assert what we need in relations. It tells us, internally, when to raise or lower our boundaries. We apply ram when we stand up for ourselves or stand up against people who invade us.”
Take Hero Pose for this exercise: Stand; face your partner. Both of you extend your right leg forward one pace, so your right knees stand above your right ankles and you both can see your right toes but your knees block your right feet from your sight. Straighten your left legs (knee slightly bent) behind you. Your left hips press toward your right knees, so your hips face forward. You both lean your right breasts over your right thighs, so you slant forward and have a gentle backward curve in your lumbars. Hold your fists, palms up, next to your chests and pull your shoulder blades toward each other, opening your chest. Feel solid, able to stand up to people and events and empowered to set and maintain boundaries.
Both of you close your eyes as you stand in this pose. Picture opposite you A PERSON YOU’D LIKE TO STAND UP TO in your full power.
Finish the sentences below aloud to the person you visualize (not each other, talk instead, with your eyes closed, to the person you picture), “What I want from you is ….” and “The needs I meet if you give me what I want from you are ….”
Meditate on THE POWER YOU NEED IN RELATIONSHIPS.
Open your eyes and complete these sentences to each other:
“Here’s the ways I help my person ….
“I want my person to appreciate me for….
“To empower myself with you, I can ….
“If I ruled my person’s lovelife, I’d …
“From you, I want …. because what I really need is ….
“In my community, country and world, I want …. If I ruled the world, I’d empower people and the planet these ways: ….”
HEED YOUR HEARTS (Chakra 4)
Chant yam three times together and center yourselves in your hearts. Look into each other’s eyes and assume a new Hero Pose again, but this time hold your left leg forward, arms stretched back and chest open.
Close your eyes. Pretend you each STAND BEFORE SOMEONE other than each other. Beam love to the person you imagine before you.
Both of you finish this sentence aloud to the people you each picture. Speak at the same time to the person you imagine (ignore for now what your partner vocalizes): “Here’s what I love about you ….”
Imagine the person you visualize sends love to you; receive it.
Eyes still closed, broadcast love from your heart to your family, community and humanity.
Open your eyes and beam love to each other.
Access what you love about each other. Then sit together.
Say whom you saw and felt love toward when you had your eyes closed. Share what you thought and felt when you sent love to that person.
Tell each other what you thought and felt when you sent love to your family.
Say what you thought and felt when you sent love to the world.
Complete, to each other: “HEAR WHAT I LOVE ABOUT YOU….”
Become your Love Chakra and say what you want and why.
How would your person live if you were the sole voice she or he heeded.
How do you balance your Giver and Taker subselves.
Relate what you’d do if you dictated love on Earth.
VITALIZE YOUR VOICE CHAKRAS (5th)
Cradle each other’s throats in your hands and chant ham three times.
Take turns; SING your favorite songs–songs that expresses who you are.
TICKLE each other till you giggle; this, too, opens your throat chakra.
Finish this sentence with each other as many times as you can: “YOU DON’T KNOW I ….” [Weigh risking each other’s probable reactions against the chance you’ll get more intimacy if you each reveal what you’ve not yet told.]
Notice WHAT YOU DREAD DIVULGING; magnify this fear and take turns; finish: “I have secrets so bad that if you knew you’d ….”
“It’s hardest to tell you …. [Finish]
“I risk our relation by revealing ….“
ENACT YOUR NARRATORS
Say, “Personify your communicative chakra, the subself that shares or suppresses what you say.”
Relate your concerns about what your partner reveals.
Share what you need to feel safe to express authentically.
If you dictated the truth to the world, how would the world change?”
Now it’s your turn to relate your concerns about what your partner revealed, say what you need to express yourself authentically to her or him and to say how you’d change the world to deal with what you perceive as the bigger truths.
BROADEN YOUR BRAINS (Charge 6th Chakra)
Tell your partner: “Now let’s explore your mind–your ooo chakra. We’ll evoke your psychic abilities and archetypal understandings.”
Sit, face each other. Touch hands, rest foreheads together, eye-gaze. Say, “Imagine each ooo tunes your psychic center. Chant ooo three times.”
Move your foreheads back from each others’ but keep your gaze into each other’s eyes.
Say, “Embody your PSYCHIC self, the subself that intuits directly.
“Look past my current face. Imagine how I looked as a newborn, child and young adult.
“Visualize PIVOTAL CHILDHOOD INCIDENTS in my life.
“Imagine me living a PASTLIFE; see a pivotal incident in my childhood.
“If I developed BEST IN THE NEXT TEN YEARS, how would I manifest?”
Reverse roles; your turn to enact Seer and imagine critical events in her childhood and pastlives, imagine your partner at her or his best in ten years and share what you imagine.
REPRESENT YOUR REASONERS
Take turns again; first one, then the other of you identify with your intellect.
“When did you, Intellect, become a big force in your person’s life? HOW DID YOU SERVE your person then?
“How do you help now?
“WHAT, Intellect, DO YOU WANT now and why do you want that?
“If you modulated your person all the time, how would she or he live?
“How would you organize the world if you were in charge?
“How do you, Intellect, get along with the other half–the intuitive, psychic part–of the brain?”
OPEN YOUR CROWNS AND MERGE WITH EACH OTHER, ALL PEOPLE, ALL BEINGS, AND THE DIVINE (Charge 7th Chakra)
Transcend, yet retain your separate self-sense as an aspect as you merge with lovers, world, divinity.
Both of you close your eyes; channel THE UNIVERSE’S DIVINE SPIRIT.
Enact your spiritual voice. As the spiritual subself, say what you want for your person and the world.
CENTER AND COORDINATE THE CHAKRAS
Read to partner “See, one-by-one, your chakra voices board a bus to picnic at the beach. Your Kid, Sexy Side, Hero, Romantic, Talker, Psychic and Spiritual Subselves; they represent your seven chakras, climb aboard. Notice which voices sit together.
“Overhear them chat about how they’d like to enjoy this outing.
“When they arrive, notice how they play. Note how each helps prepare the picnic.
“At the beach, a difficulty arises between two or more voices, who want different things.
“Notice which chakras want what.
“Let their disagreement escalate. Let other chakras contribute to the debate.
“It’s time to return, but one chakra voice delays boarding. Notice which. The others coax it onboard, though it resists.
“The bus driver turns to the recalcitrant voice and speaks to it. What does the driver say?
“Be the driver, the one in charge, the one who decides where the bus goes and when.
“What do you say to the reluctant one and all the other chakra voices?
“On the way home, they all sing together. What do they sing?”
Ask your partner to guide you through the picnic of subselves.
