by Kayla Wright| Reality and perception are divine instruments we are given to measure, adapt, and experience sensations, both physically and spiritually. Through the capable mass of intellect that resides in our skulls and the beautiful vortex’s of energy that permeate from our being to the world around us. Stimulating a grandeur understanding; a holistic experience.
Yet, is it possible that our perception of reality has been skewed, conditioned, and developed in a manner that is less than our ability to freely grasp and understand our reality—wholly, if not partially?
As children our physical minds and our spiritual awareness are limitless, flexible, and impressionable. The effects of religion, the views from parents and peers, and the quality of education we received as little ones has affected the outcome of our brain dominance and our ability to balance—even recognize, the universal energies that affect all permeable, living things.
We hold a very capable instrument, the CNS, (central nervous system) a process that reacts with more than just the biology of our bodies. The CNS reacts with our physical and spiritual bodies through means of awareness, sensations, movements, and an intimate, invaluable, reservoir of energy; a reservoir of energy we call, “Chakras.” This flow of energy is constant and influenced by our mindset, emotions, health, and surroundings. These abilities push us towards an infinite progression, a divine inspiration, a spiritual awakening.
The ability to recognize a shift in consciousness is one of the many characteristics of a spiritual awakening. This shift is a blending of two understandings; one on a linear aspect and the other on an integrated, or connected, aspect of reality; like two shades of paint swirled together. This blending is the ability to consciously work towards a balanced mind and a balanced flow of universal energy through the Chakras, providing us with an ability to more effectively see the world as a whole, instead of in plain, mundane pieces. This integration, or blend of both aspects, gives us the ability to look with our eyes, sensations, and feelings rather than just see with just our physical eyes.
Our minds are unique, capable, and terribly efficient, but in today’s society we find our mental capacity to be pre-dominantly left hemisphere. This is because a logical approach to problems and trails are accepted, sought after, and implemented into our society’s understanding of the world we live in, at this precise moment. However, improving the balance and function of both brains hemispheres will unlock latent abilities that are just as capable, if not, more adaptable than at solving life’s many challenges, secrets, and mysteries.
The left hemisphere of the brain is commonly called the “male,” and deals with logical reasoning and the sense of putting two and two together, like pieces of a puzzle. A lack of spirituality, intuition, and creativity are common in those who are left-brain dominant. If overactive, or the brain becomes too unbalanced, tendencies of suppressed emotions and obsession with order and control are expressed.
Our right hemisphere is one that is influenced by creativity and a more holistic understanding of what is being perceived. This hemisphere is more commonly referred to as the female mind, in the fact that it provides a more intuitive understanding of our surroundings, and ourselves. Reasoning of a right brain is often lead by the ‘heart’ and, internal and external sensations. If over stimulated, right-brained individuals tend to view themselves as the victim in their trails, showing expressed traits of low self-esteem and self-worth.
As we begin our concentrated effort at balancing these two seemingly different hemispheres, our awareness of the energy vortex’s arise, and we find ourselves wanting to create a more in-tune being of that which we are. The term “Chakra” translates into, wheel, representing the vortexes of energy that permeate, reside, and put off, natural energy between all living things. These energy levels are what guide us, spiritually, to an ever-increasing understanding of divine potential. The quality and flow of energy that enters and leaves our bodies is determined by the state of mind we are in, the thoughts we give power to, and our health.
Physically, these Chakras each pertain to a gland and body demographic that influence an overall well-being.
Mentally, the Chakras provide clarity and the ability to decrease negative and harmful expressions on our minds, causing our ability to respond to negative trials, more controlled.
Spiritually, as our mental and physical beings become more in tune and balanced, these energy chakras begin vibrate more frequently causing a feeling of true divinity to unfold. These energy fields, when balanced, can influence greatness and vitality in all aspects of our beings or, if unbalanced, can become a toxin to your physical, mental, and spiritual essence. By working towards a balanced brain and balanced energy, a better understanding of who we are begins to bloom, in turn, an awareness of the world around us flourishes.
The ability to understand our need to become balanced, both spiritually and mentally, is the first step we take towards an actual integration of the two.
I implore you to open your mind to a greater perception of the things around you and continue, with me, learning of the techniques of how we can come about such an awakening.
