Day 7 Meditation on Chakras and The Lords Prayer

We have heard it said that Meditation allows us to grow closer to a divine experience, union with God, communion with God.  So while there may be many different ways to approach meditation, one very powerful method is prayer.  While many people of various faiths are practicing meditation, this post is one that may resonate well with Christians.   People who prefer using Hindu Mantras, Buddhist Mantras or various scripture can choose to do so.

In the Bible Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that
comes from the mouth of God.'"(Matthew 4:4).  This concept is similar to Mantra, our words have power, they are affirmations that can create positive changes in our life or negative.  This Prayer many people recite "The Lord's Prayer" or "Our Father" is a beloved prayer for many around the world.  In the Book of revelation it speaks of the seven gates which are according to many scholars the seven chakras in the body.  The Chakras are energy vortexes within the body that affect the energy of our body & bodily functions.  Below is a diagram of how Edgar Cayce connected the Chakra Sacred points to this Sacred Prayer.

This Meditation combines the Lord's prayer with awareness of Chakras.  Begin in your comfortable seated position and when reciting the Lord's prayer, fix your energy and awareness on the coinciding Chakra.  See yourself surrounded by a radiant light.

The Prayer is:
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
