What is a Chakra – A Gateway

I facilitate a workshop that I call Companioning YOUR Greatness. In this workshop my focus is on using guided meditations to reveal the creativity of the participants. I love the way in which such creativity opens up in everyone in a very unique way.
One way of answering the question, “What is a Chakra?” is to view it as a magical Gateway into a place filled with wonder that you are going to explore. Personally speaking, that excites me more than knowing that a chakra is a wheel.
It doesn’t have to be a gateway. It could be a doorway into a room. It could be a boat that you sail down a stream on an adventure to the Ocean which represents the Ocean of Love which you become at one with (union).
Whatever image works for you is the image that you follow.
It doesn’t have to be forever. The image will change as you grow. What is important, in the beginning, is that there is some degree of excitement felt in the invitation.
Do not let this question, “What is a Chakra?” simply be more information. Let it invite you into following your destiny into the KNOWING of Love.
You are young. So you know everything. You leap into the boat and begin rowing. But listen to me.
Without fanfare, without embarrassment, without any doubt, I talk directly to your soul. Listen to me.
Lift the oars from the water, let your arms rest, and your heart, and heart’s little intelligence, and listen to me.
There is life without love. It is not worth a bent penny, or a scuffed shoe. It is not worth the body of a
dead dog nine days unburied.
When you hear, a mile away and still out of sight, the churn of the water as it begins to swirl and roil, fretting around the
sharp rocks – when you hear that unmistakable pounding – when you feel the mist on your mouth and sense ahead the embattlement, the long falls plunging and steaming – then row, row for your life toward it.
