(A version of this is found in the book “Meditation: Opening doorways on a new reality”.)
Closing doorways on your chakras or centres is essential to look after and protect your energy, and turn down the volume on sensitivity. It is good to do daily, and after meditation.
Energy follows thought. This is an old and true spiritual rule. What you think, what you imagine and put energy into is what you are likely to get, given that it matches Natural Law and your karma. So if you think, and keep on thinking you can close the doorways on your chakras, then you can. If you think and keep on thinking that you can button up your aura, then you can.
It helps to know your centres or chakras. Take a look at the illustration for guidance. You will see plenty of diagrams showing seven chakras, sometimes you can find diagrams showing twelve chakras. In most diagrams and pictures, chakras or centres are shown like round discs, or spheres. It is fine to think of them like this. You can also, more accurately, regard them as being like slightly rounded oblongs or slightly rounded rectangles.
It is fine to work with the seven chakras or centres, though there are in fact, a hundred centres in a line through and also above the body. Many of these are quite small in most people. Astral energy stealers don’t know anything about the centres that are new, or above the physical head, so we don’t have to focus on these. After getting used to the closing doorways technique, you can work on the new ones as well.
Familiarize yourself with the centres in the body. From the lowest main centre the base centre, there is the sexual centre, then the solar plexus. Above that is the area of the heart centre, which can be considered as one area, though there are three centres in that space. Then there is the throat centre. One of the centres above the throat centre is the third eye, situated between and above the eyebrows. These centres can be charged up with meditation, and the energy within them can provide a meal. The lovely energy you end up creating in your aura can also be munched on.
What follows is a closing doorways meditation. Do it as soon as you finish your meditation session. With practice you can become quick at this.
Close your eyes and place your awareness on your base centre, situated in your perinaum, between your legs. Imagine a door is on the chakra. If it is open, imagine closing it, and locking it with a gold key.
Now place your focus just below your navel and in the middle of your body. Again imagine your sexual centre or chakra. Imagine a door on the front of it. If the door appears to be open, then close it, and lock it with the gold key.
Place your awareness on your solar plexus (in the centre of your body near your stomach). Imagine your solar plexus centre as a ball of energy, and notice the door on it. In your imagination notice if the door is open or closed. If it appears open, then close it. Lock it with a golden key.
Move your awareness up to the heart centre. Again look at the heart centre, and the door on it. Close the door if you need to, and lock it with a golden key.
Place your awareness on your throat centre now. Look for the door. If it is open, then close it, and lock it with a golden key.
Now imagine your third eye. Look for the door on it and check if it is closed. If it is open, then close it, and lock it with a golden key.
Now to cover and protect your aura. Imagine a thick, dark blue hooded cloak with a coloured silky lining, being placed around you. The cloak and hood is calming and soothing. It covers your aura. On the front of the cloak are some buttons. As you do up the buttons you seal your aura.
When you are ready, open your eyes.
