LESSON 2 STEP 3 : ACTIVATING THE HAND CHAKRAS
You've already learned a complete step by step procedure for how to activate your hand chakras in lesson 1. This is something you will want to practice on a regular basis. The more you do it the more it will become second nature.
This step is going to cover what a hand chakra is, why it's one of the most powerful tools in a healer's toolkit, and why you activate your hand chakras before doing energy healing.
WHAT IS A HAND CHAKRA
Every person has an energy center in the palm of each of their hands. This energy center is often referred to as a chakra. Because of it's location in the hand it is called a hand chakra. Nice and simple.
The hand chakras are some of the easiest for new energy healers to feel. As you advance in your healing work you will find you don't need to channel healing through your hands. You can channel it through any part of your body or auric field. You can channel energy with your eyes, your voice, any part of your body, and your mind.
Those are advanced techniques. When a person is new to healing work the hand chakras are the best to get started with because it is very easy to start "sensing" the energy in these two chakra centers.
WHY HEALERS ACTIVATE THEIR HAND CHAKRAS
Activating, also commonly referred to as opening, your hand chakras allows the energy to flow from your hands easier. Here's an analogy. Think of a kitchen faucet. You turn on a spigot and water begins to flow. You turn off a spigot and water stops flowing.
Your hands are the kitchen faucet and the water is healing energy. The spigot is what you're learning in this course, how to regulate the healing energy until you can turn it on and off at will.
You can do hands on healing without activating your hand chakras, but what you will find is that the energy flows more freely when you do activate them before a healing. To show you the difference, let's practice doing self energy healing both with and without opening the hand chakras.
ENERGY HEALING WITHOUT ACTIVATING HAND CHAKRAS
Follow the steps in lesson 1 excluding the second step, activating your hand chakras.
You just practiced self healing without open hand chakras. You may have noticed that it took longer to feel the energy flowing than with your previous practice sessions. You may also have noticed that after a few minutes energy did start flowing. This is common. Activating the hand chakras kick-starts the healing process. By not activating the hand chakras ahead of time, you don't stop the healing process completely, but it takes longer for the flow to start.
Now let's practice doing a self healing with your hand chakras activated.
ENERGY HEALING WITH ACTIVATED HAND CHAKRAS
Follow the steps in lesson 1 including the second step, activating your hand chakras.
You just practiced self healing with open hand chakras. You may have noticed a feeling of lightness, warmth or tingling in your hands that was stronger during this healing exercise than in the first one. These are common sensations people experience when their hand chakras are open and activated and they are channeling healing energy. You may have also noticed a stronger sensation in the area you were healing.
HAND CHAKRAS AND LEARNING ENERGY HEALING
One of the most important practice exercises you can do to learn energy healing is to do regular work with your hand chakras. At this point in the course, you may not feel any or much sensation in your hand energy centers when doing healing work.
Some people are more sensitive to "feeling" energy. Some are more sensitive to "seeing" it. Don't feel bad if you don't feel anything yet. We have extra practice assignments for you at the end of this lesson. If you don't feel the energy flowing through your hands yet, double up on those practice assignments and continue doing them every week as you progress through the course.
Here is one more hand chakra exercise for you to do right now.
Ball of Light Exercise
The ball of light exercise is an important exercise to continue practicing. Doing this one technique repeatedly will increase your abilities as a healer, because it will increase the sensations of what energy feels like. As you become more and more attuned to the feeling of energy, your skills as a healer will automatically increase.
Consider this exercise to be like the lesson from the movie The Karate Kid. Wax on. Wax off. Before you know, you're doing martial arts. Play with energy long enough, before you know it, you're an energy healer.
Energy healing can change your life.
