Energy and Light
This month we are exploring how to manifest positive energy with the aid of crystal gazing. As we move past the winter solstice and the days begin the get longer, we will examine ways to share our own personal light and energy with others.
|Manifesting Positive Energy
Manifesting useful, joyous, and positive energy is an important step on the road to achieving the things in life that you want. Before you begin manifestation work, it is important to put yourself into the properly conducive emotional state. You should be relaxed and comfortable.
For this exercise, we are going to utilize a positive emotion to summon positive energy.
Begin by sitting with your crystal sphere in a natural gazing position.
Now, think about something for which you are truly grateful. Gratitude is a powerful emotional state. It always generates positive energy. In your mind, create an image or symbol of that for which you are grateful. It may be a specific visual image of a being for whose companionship you are grateful, such as the image of a person or a pet whose life has brightened your path, or it may be a general symbol of many things for which you are grateful, such as a fine spring morning in the sun, or a religious emblem dear to your heart. You may consider several images until you choose one that both inspires the emotion of gratitude and, at the same time, is easy to hold in mind.
Adjust your breathing as follows:
Inhale on a count of four.
Hold the breath in on a count of two.
Exhale on a count of four.
Hold out on a count of two before inhaling again. Repeat.
You will maintain this breathing for the whole exercise. (It becomes second nature with just a little practice.)
As you continue the breathing, project your chosen image into the crystal. Allow yourself to clearly visualize it. Allow the feeling of gratitude to grow and expand. Allow your gratitude to fill the crystal.
When you feel the crystal filled with gratitude, relax your gaze and simply experience and receive the positive energy. Allow this to last for a few moments.
It is appropriate to follow this up with a prayer of appreciation.
Sharing Your Light
When cultivating positive energy, it is extremely important to share it. The only way to maintain positive energy is to keep it flowing. Once you try to cling to it, it begins a kind of decay. When you share it, however, it remains with you and grows.
Something that is spiritually very exciting about sharing light is that there are so many ways to do it. You can send it to a specific person, such as a friend, or to someone you have never met, such as a petitioner at the Crystal Silence League website. You can send light to a pet or a lost animal. You can also send light to a group of people, to an organization, or to an entire species of animals. There is no limit to the sharing of light.
With your crystal in gazing position, make a vivid mental picture of the person, organization, animal, or other entity to whom you want to send light. If you do not have a memory-image or a photograph or a logo to visualize, you may let your imagination bring the mental picture into your mind.
Project this image into the crystal.
Now allow your own light to flow from your heart into the crystal. Visualize the light from your heart surrounding and covering the person, animal, or organization. Your heart's light is boundless. It is a pleasure to share it.
Hold this experience for one to three minutes.
Enjoy the process of sharing your light with others. At the conclusion, treat yourself to some small comfort.
This exercise is just one of the many techniques explained in a forthcoming book on crystal gazing, brought to you by the Crystal Silence League.
"I'd just like to say a huge thank you to all of you who prayed for my daughter... I'm so very very grateful. I wish you all much love and many blessings."
