based on my gut feeling and from what other people have said, having a healthy energy body is pretty important to effective magic. I have tried several different techniques to open and exercise chakras over the last several months. some of them have had ok results some of them did not do anything that I could detect.
I have recently started chanting the chakra mantras and using the chakra mudras at the same time.I will first do a 10 minute breathing exercise to calm and clear the mind. then I will start with the root chakra and chant for about 4 minutes and then move up to the next one.
I have had amazing results from this. I have not done any magic since I started this practice a little over a week ago, but I have seen great improvements in other areas of my life. Everything is easier for me. My mind works much better. I can see the beauty in the world around me. I’m enjoying life much better and I have a lot more enthusiasm for the future.
one interesting thing I noticed this morning was that I unintentionally increased the tone of my chants as I moved up to the different chakras. before today all of the chants were at the exact same tone.
I just thought I would throw this out there for all you other folks.
