Did you know that there are bee shamans? Healers have worked with bees for thousands of years. Bees are mystical creatures who give life to our food and bring honey, a nectar of the gods to our tables. There are many ways to work with bees as healers and mystics. We'll go into that another day. Today we'll focus on drawing their magic into our chakra system.
This beautiful meditation came to me while practicing yoga today, just in time for savasana, the final relaxation. It's a great tool to use while meditating lying down, and it can also be used while sitting up.
Bee Chakra Activation:
Lie down and relax with some deep belly breaths. Picture a red flower growing out of your root chakra, starting at the base of your spine. See it grow tall and spread its beautiful red petals. Now imagine yourself growing out of your base chakra and merging into this flower. Flowers have auras; feel your aura blending with the flower's aura and drink in its vibrant energy. Visualize your energetic field turning red as you merge with this flower's energy. The energy of the red chakra infuses you with a sense of calm and security.
Now watch a vibrant golden honeybee approach. He drops golden pollen above the center of your red flower. The pollen is golden energy, glimmering like fairy dust, and as it merges with your red aura it catches fire and glows golden. Feel your aura come alive, shooting energy down through the flower stem and activating your base chakra. Know that the bee's pollen has come straight from the heavens. As it cleanses and heals your root chakra your energy is filled with a deep understanding of abundance.
Now picture an orange flower growing out of your sacral chakra. Merge with its orange glow and feel a sense of passion and creativity overcome you. Visualize the bee visiting with his gift of pollen and feel him fill your aura with golden light. As the gold reaches down toward your sacral chakra, cleansing and activating it, feel yourself becoming one with all of creation.
Visualize a yellow flower growing from your solar plexus. Merge with its yellow light and feel a sense of strength and confidence. See the honeybee dropping beautiful golden pollen and feel him awaken your aura with golden light. As the gold reaches down toward your solar plexus chakra, cleansing and activating it, feel yourself rooted firmly at the center of the universe.
Now picture a green flower growing out of your heart chakra. Merge with its emerald glow and feel love radiate through you. Visualize the honeybee dropping his sparkling powder and feel it electrify your aura with golden light. As the gold reaches down toward your heart, cleansing and activating it, feel your love expand to include all of creation.
Imagine a light blue flower growing out of your throat chakra. Merge with its soft blue glow and feel yourself connected to your inner expression. See the bee drop golden pollen and feel it charge your aura with golden light. As the gold reaches down toward your throat, cleansing and activating it, feel your connection to the unique soul vibration that makes you who you truly are.
Visualize an indigo blue flower growing from your third eye chakra. Merge with its indigo light and feel a yourself filled with inspiration. Visualize the honeybee dropping beautiful golden pollen and feel it enliven your aura with golden light. As the gold connects to your third eye chakra, cleansing and activating it, feel your awareness expand to contain all of creation.
Imagine a white lotus flower growing out of the top of your head, from your crown chakra. Merge with its pure white glow and feel yourself connected to divine guidance. See the bee drop golden pollen and feel it charge your aura with golden light. As the gold reaches your crown chakra, cleansing and activating it, become aware of yourself as an inextricable part of the divine presence, the all-that-is.
Take several deep, integrating breaths. As you breathe in, watch the golden light swell up, and as you breathe out feel it return to you and grow even brighter. Savor the feeling of aliveness that the bees have sparked in your energetic being. Send the golden light out to all of the bees in an act of love and gratitude. You have now activated your seven primary chakras with the light of the bees and the flowers. As you go out into the world, know that you will now resonate with them on a deeper level. Make it a point to look for signs of love and connection from them as you go about your days.
