Moving Energies with Breath
A big part of working magick, reiki, and healing is all about moving and conducting energies. Energies are vibrations released from all matter and substances no matter how large or small. That feeling you receive when someone quietly comes up behind you, you don’t hear or see them, but you can still feel their presence, those are energies. Even non-animate objects release energies as well. They can provide us healing, love support, and they can also break us down and destroy. It is important that we learn how to use these energies for the better, so we may grow and develop into out best selves.
“Energies flow where attention goes,” is a highly common phrase used when learning how to work with energies. We naturally have the gift to move energies about, but the ultimate magick comes when we do it consciously rather than subconsciously. Our mind is full of electrical impulses that are also a form of energy. When we use our mind to focus on specific things and scenarios, we attract more of the similar energy. Energy works like a magnet, like attracting like. When we focus on negative aspects of life, it seems that only awful things are happening around us. Similarly, when we focus on all the fun and wonderful things, we tend to have more of those things in our life. This is also the foundation of manifestations and creating our own reality.
So how do me move these energies in a way that benefits us? Well, before we get ahead of the game, we first need to know how to feel these energies and move them within ourselves. The best way to do this is with visualizations in time with our breath. First, begin with finding a comfortable and quiet place to relax. Sitting upright in a chair will prevent falling asleep, as your eyes will be closed. You can play peaceful nonlyrical music is the background. Take a moment to relax your body and allow it to become heavy. Focus now on your breathing, moving in the nose and out your mouth. Steadily inhale and exhale making sure to fill and clear your lungs as much as possible. Once you have a rhythm established, move your attention to how the air feels whirling in your nose and down to your lungs. Visualize that same feeling throughout your body. When you inhale, imagine a bright light of any color coming from above you, in through the top of your head and filling your body. The light and energy will fill your whole body on inhale, down your arms, through your veins and to your feet. While exhaling, visualize the same energy rushing to the ground, out the bottoms of your feet and into the deep ground. It can be a lot to remember while you are first practicing so take your time perfecting you visualizations.
When you visualize the light moving through you, try not to get caught in making everything perfect. The energies will wisp through you just light the air you breathe. After some time and practice, you may even begin to feel warm or even feel waves of heat move through your body. If this is the case, congratulations, your moving energy. If you don’t get the hang of it right away, no worries, just keep practicing. Just like anything else the more you practice, the better you become. This is the foundation of manifestations, creating your reality, and working all magick. Your well on your way.
