This is something peculiar to my own practice, and something that may be of use to others on their path.
First, I would advise one to have a familiarity with the seven major chakras in the chakra system, or at least have a knowledge of their location relative to the human body. Otherwise, you may be confused by what follows.
After gently relaxing myself and placing my body in a comfortable position, I focus first on the Root chakra and work my way up to the Crown chakra. Tomorrow's entry will detail some of these things.
At the Root chakra, I salute my ancestors.
At the Sacral chakra, I salute the ancestral holies.
At the Solar Plexus chakra, I salute the ancestral powers.
At the Heart chakra, I salute the Forgotten Dead.
At the Throat chakra, I salute the Healers and Gurus.
At the Third Eye chakra, I salute the Holy Guardian Angel.
At the Crown chakra, I salute God/the Divine.
When ending a meditation, I thank each in reverse order, starting with the Crown chakra and going backwards to the Root chakra.
Ending a meditation, releasing the energy, centering one's self, and grounding are all incredibly important, and I'm sad to say that in my youth, I made the mistake oftentimes of simply ending a ritual without the proper dispersing of the powers that I had summoned.
Some of the above meditation needs to be explained and detailed, especially "Ancestral Holies" and "Ancestral Powers," but all will be made clear, and that's for tomorrow's entry.
