Energy Meditation to Support Social Change

January 17, 2021

mandalaAs many of us hold space for a peaceful transition in the U.S. this week, and honor Dr. Martin Luther King and his work Monday, I wanted to offer a chakra-based meditation for working within yourself with the energies struggling to shift at this time. This meditation works with your full energy ‘egg’, the oval surrounding you, encompassing the full 12-chakra system I work with (and as taught by Cyndi Dale in her books, many of which I have referenced here in the past.)

In this meditation, after centering in your heart, you will move down through the 10th chakra at the very bottom of your energy body, beneath your root chakra, using a root visual (like the roots of a tree) to represent your connection to all of your ancestors and the energies they carry. You will focus on ‘unknotting’ and releasing energies connected to the perpetuation of racism, patriarchy, inequity and bigotry, allowing the earth to take them for deconstruction and recycling. Then you will focus on bringing healing energy to any hurt experienced through these same energetic systems and imprints.

You will then move upward to the top of your energy egg, the 9th chakra, and receive a ‘download’ of new archetypes, light codes, or streams of light representing new ways of relating to these same issues, new consciousness within yourself, and healing.

After this you will move into your navel chakra, where we often hold the mental structures and sense of identity that reflects biases and/or wounds built upon the old templates. Here you will again ‘unknot’ and release, followed by healing. Finally you will move back up into your heart, rest in the light, and emanate this outward to the world.

This meditation may not resonate for everyone, and it certainly is not meant to be a replacement for action in the world related to social justice and transformation, but change unfolds on many levels, and for those looking to connect their actions in the world with personal energetic change, this is a powerful way to proceed. I hope you enjoy it. And a reminder that the next round of my Chakra Empowerment for Women course starts January 26th, so sign up now if you have been waiting. Feel free to send me any questions about the course, and I would love to have you in it.

    That was beautiful, thank you. I really like the part about all of the roots full of light, not directed specifically. That reminded me that my lineage is far more than I can fathom, or sometimes think about, and there are lots of what I could label ‘good’ or helpful characteristics passed along, that I don’t often consider. That’s quite healing.

    Hi Joy, I’m glad it resonated for you. Yes when I do individual ancestor work I always like to focus in on specifically some helpful/strong/positive traits to affirm the connection with, in addition to whatever we are letting go of or healing. It’s always a mix – our energetic inheritance is just like our physical genetics, and to me this is almost like epigenetic work, toggling different energies off and others more on.

    Thank you Lisa for this socially and psychically sensitive, and very powerful meditation.

    I think that this is a powerful meditation for all races and ethnicities. I feel that trans-generational trauma issues are surfacing for many people at this time in history. A lot of people aren’t informed about the struggles and bigotry of almost every new wave of immigrants coming to America., especially in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds. A great many were poor peasants suffering in their native country. The Italians, Irish, Polish, and Jewish immigrants were especially targeted with bigotry and societal abuse in America-it wasn’t always other races.
    I find that this type of trauma seems to pass down through subsequent generations. I feel that child abuse and neglect are often the results- as parents deal with these inherited unconscious stressors. My Jewish grandfather told me stories about the many ordeals he and his family had to deal with, and my Sicilian and Irish ancestors also had many struggles. I feel that true peace in a society can be attained when everyone of every race
    can share their stories and be heard.

    Hi Anonymous, I absolutely agree re: intergenerational trauma, and how this is present in virtually everyone’s background and energy body to some degree. Healing and clearing these is often a big part of my private session work. I do also think within the U.S. we have certain collective energetic structures specifically around race that here we all need to own and work with as well (Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste is an excellent overview of this), so there are multiple levels to this work. Individuals from/in other countries may have other forms of this, and then of course we all have layers linked to our specific religious, cultural, or ethnic heritage. Then of course on a general level there is also patriarchy and the repression of the feminine, gender identification, our relationship to the environment and so many other imprints and energy structures, in addition to the specific individual wounds and imprints linked to our own ancestral history, personal experience and karmas. It’s layered and multi-faceted. I do think there is a lot of power to be had in working energetically on these, in addition to action in the world and our own lives.
