Walking The Abyss
Knotty Chakra’sFears and unwanted thinking patterns create knots in your chakras. Once your Chakra knots are exposed,and you know what sort of problem you are working on, you can begin untying them. If you begin unravelingknots, (when they take up too much of your head space) don't hesitate to perform this exercise.Set aside several hours where you can be undisturbed in temple space. Light your favorite incense andcandles to remind yourself this is a magickal act. Cast a circle around the entire room, so that you have as muchfreedom of movement as possible.Imbibing sacraments, if you want to include this, should be done as soon as you are comfortable. Alcoholworks very well, but I don't recommend hallucinogens for this purpose.Now, just sit back and think about your past. Think about your parents, siblings, and friends growing up.Start thinking about the knot you are working on, and what may have caused that block. You may know thisright off the top of your head; if this is the case, it is probably something you have avoided thinking about for along time. Now, you MUST think about it. This is the purpose of this ritual.If the memory isn't apparent, think about your knot. Put the impact of your greatest fear into motion byimagining a scenario that would invoke it. (For example, if you're greatest fear is being left alone, imagineyourself stranded in a strange place.)Name that emotion. Put a handle on it. Now, ask yourself "When was the first time I felt this emotion?" If you can't remember the first time, try to find the earliest occurrence of this emotion in your life. Somewhere inyour past you made an emotion-based decision that "The world works this way." This decision is wrong foryou because it is contrary to your True Will. However, it is ingrained in your makeup, confusing your entirebeing, and causing knots in your psyche.Not only do you have to go back and fix that decision, you have to unload years of emotion/energy build-upthat it caused. Traditional therapy methods ignore the energy part; that is why it takes so long. Untying theknot with the help of magick will clear the energy all at once, and allow the decision to be seen without anyemotional cover-up immediately.Once you remember the very first time you felt this emotion, replay the scene in your head with as muchdetail as you can remember. Think about the location, the people present, the furniture or weather that day.Figure out all the details and relive the scene in your mind as vividly as possible. Put yourself firmly in thatreality.As soon as you can feel the emotion-laden energy begin to rise in yourself (tears, anger, shame) begindrawing it out of your system and grounding it. You can visualize all of the energy going into the grounddirectly from your aura, or visualize a conduit of some sort or this purpose. (Make sure any conduit is invacuum mode!) You can also sink the energy into a crystal, a pillow, a chair, or any other inanimate object.Don't worry if the object isn't set up for absorbing energy - the idea is to get it out of you, not necessarily tocharge an item. Spit out that energy as you relive the scene in retrospect. Some questions to think about are:How old were you?Where were you? Describe the room and any objects you see.Who else is there?What is happening?What is being said?What are you feeling?
