Chakra Meditation

image1

Chakra meditation only needs a person’s commitment and willingness to try it.

Before you start, decide where you will meditate. It’s extremely beneficial to have an area when practicing this meditation. Find an area that’s free of distractions. You’ll know when you enter this area as you will feel it’s only for the meditation practice. The more you practice chakra meditation, the deeper silence you’ll create within your special place and yourself. This area will be your sanctuary and will begin to draw you in that place of inner tranquility.

You can also make an altar by decorating a table. Put a nice material on the table and place special objects and icons that symbolize sacredness. You can have an icon or picture of Buddha, a candle, flowers or whatever you like that will help you practice chakra meditation for beginners. A meditation pillow can also help keep your posture aligned.
Creating a Healthy Flow…

Chakra meditation develops awareness of your energy system. As you progress, you can gain deeper self-awareness, release major personal blocks, and connect with higher spiritual dimensions. Guided chakra meditation works with tools such as centering, grounding, the aura, energy channels, chakras, emotions and many more. It ideally compliments spiritual healing and psychic reading.

Important
Before you do this guided chakra meditation, you need to know how to center and ground.

Once you have assumed a comfortable position, you will close your eyes and start taking some deep breaths. In through the nose, out through the mouth. The increased oxygen from breathing heavily acts as a relaxant so you are able to focus on the meditation easier. If you are feeling particularly stressed or restless try saying the affirmation “I am now calm and relaxed” to yourself, I find it quite effective in entering a peaceful mind-state.

Begin meditating from the Crown Chakra located at the top of your head. Feel and visualize a white energy flowing into your body like a river through the crown chakra.  The energy continues to pour in filling you up with a warmth and energy. It makes you feel calm but powerful at the same time.

The energy feels like it is healing you. It simple washes away any fears, anger, resentment, guilt, sadness, helplessness. It washes away everything and leaves behind no thoughts, just comfort and bliss.

You begin to notice your crown chakra is feeling rather full and the energy stops pouring in. The energy begins to flow down from your crown chakra to your third eye or brow chakra. You can feel the energy moving from one area to another until it rests in-between your eyes. It’s swirling around in the center of your forehead. You can feel the pure relaxing energy from it.

Then the flow of energy stops as it has all moved from the crown chakra to the brow chakra. Then your throat chakra opens up and the energy is slowly flowing down into that. You feel that same comforting warmth. It relaxes all the muscles in your body as it passes from area to area.

Continue this process until you have reached your root chakra.
