Guest Post by Becca Chopra – Dynamind Healing Technique
I enjoy sharing all sorts of chakra-based techniques at this site, and today I have a guest post from Hawaii-based meditation instructor and chakra healer Becca Chopra, of TheChakras.org. I have read and enjoyed both of Becca’s books on the chakras – Chakra Diaries, and her latest, Chakra Secrets, from which this excerpt is taken. Becca shares her own personal story in Chakra Secrets, including her explorations of kundalini, tantric sex, macrobiotics, past-life regression and other mind-body tools as she earns her credentials as an energy healer and finally finds love and light. In this excerpt she shares one of the chakra tools that has helped her the most, Dynamind, an “instant” healing process you can use anytime, anywhere.
Enjoy, and then head over to Amazon right away, as Chakra Secrets is available free for the Kindle there this Thursday and Friday, September 20th and 21st!!
Dynamind is a technique that reminded me of the Energy Freedom Technique (EFT) and it has similarities to it, according to its developer, Dr. Serge Kahili King, a Hawaiian shaman. He said, “In Huna, we try to make things as simple as possible, as effective as possible, so we’ve combined the power of words, breath, movement and feeling into one mind-body healing technique.”
So, I found myself repeating my personal problem, “I feel guilt tightening my chest, and that can change. I want that feeling to go away,” as I held my hands in a prayer position.
Then I tapped just four spots, the heart center, the web between the thumb and first finger of each hand, and the knob at the back of my neck where it meets the shoulders. I finished with a deep breath, inhaling with attention at the top of my head and exhaling with attention at the bottom of my feet. The Dynamind Process doused the flames of guilt that had plagued me all my life and I felt freer and lighter than ever before.
I learned that you could work on the physical sensations you were experiencing and watch them change as Dynamind directed your subconscious to follow a new pattern… in an instant.
Dynamind can be used to heal a wide range of physical dis-ease. Dr. King advises asking yourself what emotion is a problem, where you feel that emotion in the body, and then work on changing that physical sensation to let the healing energy of the body once again flow freely. All emotion manifests within the body with some physical “feeling.” Just as chakra imbalances can manifest in uncomfortable physical and emotional problems.
HOW TO USE THE DYNAMIND PROCESS:
1) FOCUS: Hold your hands in a loose prayer position.
2) DECLARE: Make a statement that acknowledges the problem, creates a positive expectation, and expresses the outcome you want, e.g.,
“I feel guilt tightening my chest, and that can change. I want that feeling to go away.”
4) BREATHE: Finish with a deep breath, inhaling with your attention at the top of your head and exhaling with your attention at the bottom of your feet.
If you finish the process and still feel a problem, repeat the exercise until you feel a release. It can help to add in a symbol. In my example, of tightening in my chest, I imagined a fist squeezing my heart and then visualized the fist opening and love flowing in before I tapped.
Dynamind can be used to balance the seven chakras, working on the physical and emotional problems often associated with each energy center. Spend a few minutes each morning checking in with your body, with your feelings, and use Dynamind to release tension and flow easily through your day.
