Day 14 of Finding Your Flow meditation is about activating our consciousness through the 7th chakra, which sits at the crown of our head. The 7th chakra is directly connected to the Divine energy of the spiritual realm and can fill us with profound joy and peace.
It resonates with the color violet and can be envisioned as a bright beam of light that comes down from heaven to fill us up. When you activate this energy center, you move into enhanced consciousness and enlightenment.
Deepak reminds us that this is really about linking your everyday self to your true self—the soul. Living as your true self is enlightenment. When you live from the soul, you will find that everything flows, and struggle falls away. You’re in the flow of the vast energy of the universe. You have entered the state of being.
For us souls@work, we might find that we shut down our chakras when we suit up for work. I know I have. Yet, if we all do that, our workplaces become boxes of humans bumping around—they become soul-less.
How many of us have complained that we have “soul crushing” jobs or that we work in a “soulless” place? And yet, we participate in creating that by disconnecting from our soul and tucking it away for the day job.
As we get better at using the chakra centers to manage the flow of energy, we will find that we get stronger and better at using that energy to not only sustain us but to help us flourish.
Consider how it would be to go through your day, every minute of it, pulsing with the Divine light. Letting it flow through you, as you.
And as we flourish and allow our souls to glow brightly, we will help others do the same. I like to think of it as being an agent of enlightenment.
Focus on dialing up the energy flow of the 7th chakra and see what happens. Play with it at work. Do it in a staff meeting and see what happens! I think you will find something magical happens.
