The TOOLS to cultivate the subtle energies of the chakras are food, sex, sound, color, rituals, meditation, and integration. Because each person may be spiritually more sensitive or connected to a certain tool than another, one way you can identify which TOOL will work best for you, is to do a basic chakra meditation. In a basic chakra meditation, you can use the meditation to communicate to you, which chakra, with its associated tool, is best for you to start working with.
To do this, you begin a chakra meditation and engage all of the chakras. You then view the chakras as a whole, and ask for the chakra to communicate with you to know which chakra tool will be best for you. For some, they will see one specific chakra light up. For others, a certain chakra may make a sound, or they can feel a vibration with a certain chakra. For others, they will be drawn and feel a certain chakra just feels better than the others. How the message is given to you will be different from others because it is your personal message from your Higher Self or your Spiritual Guide, being made to you in a format that you can understand.
Next, is to find out which spiritual GIFT would be the most beneficial skill for YOU to begin developing and practicing. Since each person's spiritual energy is unique, you most likely want to start developing a spiritual gift that is going to help you the most on your life journey. The spiritual gifts, associated with each different chakra, are
- personality sensing
- truth sensing
- past regression/future sensing
- command projection
- dream interpretation
- astral projection
This process is just one way to help a person know where to begin a journey to cultivate the chakra energies and develop their own personal spiritual gifts. First, you select a TOOL and then you identify the GIFT you want to develop.
