Alberto Villoldo provides another way to open up sacred space, outside of calling on the four directions. The alternative approach works with the eighth chakra – starting in a similar way to sensing the luminous energy field (“Reading Your Energy – 2/2/12).
Below are the steps:
- Place your hands in prayer pose.
- Raise them above your head into the eighth chakra (pictured above).
- Separate your hands to open the chakra, turning the hands out, and fanning them down shaping a dome around yourself.
- Welcome serpent, jaguar, hummingbird, & eagle. Thank Mother Earth and Father Sky.
- [The time for energy healing work]
- Reverse movements to close the sacred space.
- End with hands in a prayer pose.
- Release serpent, jaguar, hummingbird, eagle. Thank Mother Earth and Father Sky.
