Relating to the mind or our “mental faculties“, or mental state is often associated with our intellectual, cerebral, cognitive and rational thinking. The term, “going mental” is the opposite of rational thinking.
Our “mental faculties” are said to have an intuitive root and that root is the Solar Plexus. This nerve ganglia is central command to signals it receives from the pituitary and hypo campus regions of our brain. The Solar Plexus Chakra is considered the “root of intuition”, while the Third Eye Chakra is the receiver of these messages.
The Mental layer associated with our aura is a body of energy that is considered structured. It is believed that we gather thought and it is processed in our computer (or brain) and transmitted out from there. Nerve ganglia are junctions where thought is turned into action. For the Solar Plexus junction, it is our “gut feeling” and therefore, the reason for our root of intuition or gut reaction.
With Kirlian photography, the mental body usually appears as a bright yellow light radiating about the head and shoulders and extending around the whole body. It extends from 3 to 8 inches from the body. It expands and becomes brighter when someone is concentrating on mental ideas or processes.
Use a yellow light, crystals, essential oils or sound for this layer, visualizing a yellow orb of light saturating and balancing this center just below the rib cage and above the navel. This is your power center. Toning is very helpful here. Toning is the basic process of “letting go” of simple, natural sounds to attain a sense of equilibrium. Some examples of natural toning include: yawning, moaning, crying, sighing or screaming. The release of these natural tones result in the harmonizing of emotions, mind and body.
Vedic Mantra: “I claim personal power accepting responsibility for my life.”
