It is the energy that feeds the chakras that are sometimes spoken of as our physical chakras, those of the root/base, sacral and solar plexus. It is these chakras which are fed when we consciously ground ourselves and breathe in the energy from the earth, when we take off our shoes and walk barefoot on the soil or sand, or when we stand and draw the energy into our bodies through our feet at the start of Tai Chi or Chi Kung for example. Without this energy feeding and nourishing us we can become unbalanced and sometimes even unwell.
Sadly though it is this energy that often gets overlooked or forgotten, especially when people first behind to connect to the Universal Energy in a desire to open up on a spiritual level or when they first learn to work with energy.
Universal or Universal Life Force Energy is what we draw down into ourselves when we connect through our crown or the soul star chakra above our crown. This is the energy that feeds and nourishes our higher chakras, those of the crown, third eye and throat. This energy nourishes us on a spiritual, mental and emotional level and it feeds us in a completely different way to the energy we breathe in from the Earth.
To be whole, to be healthy, to be nourished on all levels we need both energies. Our heart chakra is the crossover point where the two energies meet, mix and pass each other by. Our heart needs both just like the rest of us does. Too much of either is not giving ourselves the nourishment we need. All of one or the other can cause problems.
So what do you do to connect with either nurturing energy? How do you feel? Do you need more of one or the other in your life to be healthy? Only you can know the answer to this either by taking a good look at what you do or by connecting with yourself to learn how you feel.
