Imagine there is a door above your head that lets in the light that is the light of source and your life force. Look and see if it is fully open so the light can stream in. Or, if you don't “see” with your inner sight, you could ask yes or no. You can feel the light and feel whether it is fully on. The idea is that you open the door fully, and you may even prop it open to make sure you are getting light. You will feel a difference if you open the door. All of this is a permission slip for connecting to source. I read about this meditation in a book, Prelude to Ascension. I have adapted it and added to it. The book points out that people who are ill sometimes have their doors shut or not fully open. It can benefit our health to do these simple practices in meditation.
The book goes on to mention chakra balancing. You can go further and balance your chakras. What I do is to start with the crown and open that chakra and then move down the body with each one. Look at the chakra, or feel it to see if there are any blockages or anything you can see about how it is working. For me this looks like the iris of the eye with little lines around the pupil. Occasionally there is a dark spot, like a pebble lodged in there. Imagine yourself pulling out the pebble or makng the chakra work perfectly again. Affirm the the chakra is working perfectly and you can place your hands there. Also ask the chakra to spin faster and feel the chakra spinning. Then move to the next chakra. Some charkas may feel like there is not much going on, so give them attention and get each one spinning. At the end, you can work on the soul star chakra that is above your head and also the earth star chakra, below your root center beneath your seat. The earth star chakra will ground you and you can connect it to earth in your imagination. Get all of the chakras spinning, the seven in your body and the two outside of the body. Be present and notice what you notice with awareness as you do this chakra work. It is a great opportunity to send that chakra and your body love and appreciation. Feel this and your energy field around the body will start to spin faster. You are taking in more light and moving energy through you. Your body is a toroidal energy field that extends beyond the skin all around you like a sphere. There is a vortex going into your head and out of the bottom of your torso. Now remember the door sending in light, and make sure it is open and feel the light coming into your energy field and crown. You can ask for the perfect frequencies of color to come in. Meanwhile affirm that your door is open to receiving celestial light of the perfect frequencies as all yoru chakras spin and your energy field spins around your body.
This practice is a perfect preparation for meditation, and is not difficult. If you don't see what is going on in your chakra, simply affirm with intent and words that it is working perfectly. Let me know how this practice works for you and what adaptations you discover. Please see Prelude to Ascension: Tools for Transformation by Janet McClure that has this and other meditations available, if you are interested.
