I love Jesus, and I love yoga. I love truth, and I love the mysterious. Combining the full Armor of God from the Bible (Ephesians 6:10-18), and the Chakra energy centers of the body in a meditative prayer covering has been spiritually enlightening and uplifting for my personal practice. Enjoy this journey with an open heart and mind as our spiritual eyes are opened! Let’s cleanse, clear, and empower our body, mind, and spirit. ♡
“May the words of my mouth, my meditation—thoughts, and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing, acceptable before your eyes, my only Redeemer, my Protector—God.” —Psalms 19:14
“Because you are close to me and always available, my confidence will never be shaken, for I experience your wrap—around presence every moment.” —Psalms 16:8
Holy Fire, establish your divine presence in me—fill me with your supernatural power and strength. Holy Fire, accomplish your divine purposes through me in this world.

Place hands on the feet. Take a few, deep breaths.
Oh Lord, I put on The Shoes of Peace, corresponding to the Root (Muladara) Chakra “I Am.”
I am a child of God, Your beloved. My foundation is in Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I let go of any fear or doubt, and walk in bold faith and trust. I am grounded, safe, and secure. I seek peace wherever I go. You direct my steps. I am willing to move forward through divine healing and guidance.

The Shield of Faith protects me, corresponding to the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra “I Will—I Can—I Do.”
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength! When I let the Spirit work in and through me, I have stamina, self-discipline, and confidence. My body is full of energy, health, and vitality. Thank you Lord for this weapon which enables me to thwart fiery darts in the spiritual realm. I am able to encourage and hold space for others as we link our Shields of Faith.
Place hands on the heart space. Take a few, deep breaths.
Jesus, You are my divine center, the Breastplate of Righteousness, corresponding to the Heart (Anahata) Chakra “I Love.”

Place hands lightly on the throat area. Take a few, deep breaths.
The Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, is my source of Truth, corresponding to the Throat (Vishuddha) Chakra “I Speak.”
Element—Sound / Ether
Out of the heart I speak. Thank you God for the beautiful visual of the top of the breastbone looking like a sword handle pulling truth out of the heart, moving up to the mouth, and into the world as expression. This is the only offensive weapon in the Armor of God! I ask that you fill me with Your Truth, and help me to discern and deny any lies in myself, others, and the world. May my words speak truth and life. Please help me to be an attentive, receptive listener. May my communications be clear, effective, and impactful.
Place anjali mudra (prayer) hands at the brow center. Take a few, deep breaths.
The Helmet of Salvation restores me to wholeness, corresponding to the Third (Ajna) Eye—Spiritual Eye Chakra “I See.”
Oh Lord, thank you for enlightening my spiritual eyes to receive divine knowledge and wisdom. Jesus, You save, heal, and restore me! My wholeness is secure in You. I quiet my busy mind by closing my physical eyes, and tuning into Your Presence, Love and Light. I see the interconnectedness of life, and am filled with vibrant clarity and focus. Your visions inspire me to make a difference and encourage others.
Place hands on the top of the head. Take a few, deep breaths.
The Helmet of Salvation restores me to wholeness, also corresponding to the Crown (Sahasrara) Chakra. “I Know—I Understand.”
I am fully connected spiritually, and have access to divine wisdom and understanding. God, I can call on You at any time—and You hear my thoughts and petitions. Through prayer and meditation You show me Your higher purposes, and I notice Your divine work in everything. I desire to know You more! I am calm, centered, and complete in You, Oh Lord.
Just like the Crown Chakra represents our connection to God, I believe Jesus is our connection to God. He is the bridge between God and man. I can know and understand His Presence personally and intimately. This is the source of my higher purpose. When I mentally and spiritually dress myself in the full Armor of God, and cleanse and clear the Chakra energy centers of my body, I feel fully connected and empowered to LOVE, SERVE, and INSPIRE! ♡
