Talking with Your Chakras
In the practice of Kundalini Yoga, there is the understanding that creating a conscious relationship with others depends on which chakras you are using in your communication.
Are you coming from your heart? Your intuition? Your gut? Your desires? Your insecurities?
Which chakras should you use when you communicate? It depends on your intention and your relationship. Here are the guidelines to talking from your chakras.
With any communication, you first have to know the purpose behind your words, and the role you are playing in the relationship you are creating through your words.
Here is a two-word communication that can be received in as many different ways as there are chakras:
If your intention is to create a seductive intimacy with someone, you would speak this phrase from the second chakra.
If you are parent speaking to your small child, you would speak the same phrase from the fourth chakra.
If you are trying to correct or call attention to someone’s immature behavior, you can speak this same phrase to them from the first or third chakra.
More than one chakra can be involved in a communication exchange. If you wish to speak to someone as a teacher, you might combine the energy of the sixth chakra of higher perception with the fifth chakra of blunt communication to deliver a basic truth to a student.
A master communicator knows how to communicate from what Yogi Bhajan called the “upper triangle” or chakras five, six, and seven with the power of the navel point, or third chakra.
And the very best teachers know how to communicate the vastness of the transcendental experience from the aura, or the eighth chakra, through the elevation of the heart chakra in a manner that connects with the sixth chakra, or higher perception, of the listener.
Effective chakra communication is one of the foundations of Conscious Communication that is part of the teachings of Kundalini Yoga.
