The master was strolling through a field of wheat when a disciple came up to him: “I can’t tell which is the true path. What’s the secret? What does that ring on your right hand mean?” asked the master.
“My father gave it to me before dying.”
“Well, give it to me.”
The disciple obeyed, and the master tossed the ring into the middle of the field of wheat.
“Now what?” shouted the disciple.
“Now I have to stop doing everything I was doing to look for the ring! It’s important to me!”
“When you find it, remember this: you yourself answered the question you asked me. That is how you tell the true path: it is more important than all the rest.”

Solar breath meditation. This is a technique that I like to use when I want to align my 7 energy points(chakras). Each point corresponds with a planet.
Crown – Sun
Third Eye – Moon
Throat – Mercury
Heart – Venus
Solar Plexus – Mars
Sacral – Jupiter
Root – Saturn
Ok so first It helps to know the energetic properties of each planet which can be found here. I begin with Crown chakra and move down from the top then back up. On the exhale I will begin by saying to myself Sun (crown) and then focus my awareness to the corresponding section on my physical body. I will make it through each energy point on one out breath. On the inhale I will say to myself Saturn (root) and again focus my awareness to the part of my physical body then work my way up to repeat the cycle. You may begin to feel a strong vibration in each energy point you direct focus to. Once you have completed as many cycles you feel comfortable doing, breathe at a natural rhythm and bring your focus to become aware of each energy point. Once you focus on all of the energy points you may feel a sense of being in a energetic sphere. You have reached what I like to call cosmic mode. It feels like your in space bubble. I have seen some interesting visions while practicing this method of alignment. This works for me and is very effective bringing me to the cosmic bubble fairly quickly once I sit and focus. I hope this has given you some ideas, play and learn with your energy!
