Did you ever wonder how it is possible that the earth is moving through space with a speed of 66,660 miles per hour and a rotational speed on the outer axis of about 1000 miles/per hour and we are not thrown off? Now we know that there is this thing called gravity and we have all the formulas and descriptions at hand how it works. But we do not really know what it is. I mean – we do not have magnets in-built in our feet, do we?
Now, also here we cannot give the answer to what it is, but we can explore how gravity is working in us as well. In the same way as gravity is a quality of our Mother Earth, it is also a quality within us, reflected in our first energy center, the Mooladhara (or root). Gravity is the power in us that pulls us into the center of our own being, thus giving us the capacity to settle down within. It comes very natural to human beings, but it has to be maintained.
It can be looked at as standing in the center of a rotating wheel. Everyone outside the center will be thrown around, but the person in the center will not be affected by the movement, nor lose his balance. That is exactly how gravity acts. There might be any turmoil going on around us, but as long as we are standing in the center point – in our own position, in charge of ourselves – troubles have no effect on us. Specially in times of a crisis it can be quite helpful if we are capable to jump to the gravity point within. From there – pulled into our own inner balance – we can see everything clearly and thus we are much more capable to deal with the problem. If we were outside the center on the outer parts of the wheel, we would be tossed around and it would be hard to see anything.
Try to find out how many people you have met who were emitting these qualities of gravity. Such a person would be completely content, dignified, generally joyful and compassionate. You might realize that such people are like living magnets, their own gravity attracting everyone else towards them. People might not consciously know, why they are drawn to such a person, but it is part of the peace and content that such a person emits, and the own seeking for balance.
So how do we find this gravity within? Of course – you know the answer already – through meditation: 10 minutes in the morning, 10 minutes in the evening, that is all you need. The element of the first energy center is “earth”, so meditating on the first energy center and connecting with earth will help you to establish and maintain your own gravity.
A 10-Minutes-Meditation to strengthen the first energy-center, the Mooladhara
This meditation is an easy way to establish gravity within, and connect to your own innocence and wisdom
- Awaken your Inner Energy:
Here is a guided meditation (approx. 10 Min.) to awaken your Inner Energy by the founder of Sahaja Meditation, Shri Mataji. If you went through it already skip step 1). When your Inner Energy is activated it will stay so, there is no need to repeat the affirmations (although you can do so if you like).
- At the beginning and the end of each meditation we do what we call “raising the energy” and give ourselves “a shield of protection”.
Here is a nice animation how to do it: charlie.swf
You can also find a detailed description in our Meditation Tips on page 4 and 5: Meditation Tips
- The following guided meditation is about 10 minutes long – please keep your eyes open (at least for the first time) as the instructions are in written form. The music, mantras and the image of the Uluru in Australia in this clip are all related to the Mooladhara and will help to activate the energy of this center.
I wish you a wonderful week, charming everyone with your inner magnetism!
