Meditating to Balance Your Chakras
We can used meditation or guided imagery to tune and balance our chakras, the energy centers of our body that store different kinds of powerful energy that can help us transform our lives.
Picture the red root chakra at the bottom of your spine. Image it is a round red light twirling like a record on a turntable in the area you sit on. This chakra is the seat of all of your basic energies as a human being and what you need in order to survive: food, water, shelter and so on. If you are struggling for paycheck to paycheck like many people, focus on this spinning chakra and imagine a life that is easier and full of the better things in life.
Now move up to the navel chakra, also known as the sex chakra. Picture an orange vortex at the level of your belly button. This is the center of power for your passion, creativity and procreation as well. If you have been struggling with relationships because you are stressed about finances, or having trouble getting things done at work, imagine orange light radiating outwards to boost your energy in these areas. Also picture it moving up to the next chakra.
The third chakra is your solar plexus chakra. It is the highest of your lower chakras. Think of the power of the sun and how it radiates energy. This is the seat of your willpower and personal power. If you have trouble getting tasks done, or saying no and meaning it, focus on the yellow swirling vortex. Then move the energy up to the first of the higher chakras, the heart chakra.
The heart chakra is the seat of love and compassion. Imagine your heart area flooded with green glowing energy to connect you with all living beings. Many people have a closed heart chakra due to difficult relationships in the past. Balancing this chakra can lead to love and harmony once more.
Now move the energy up to the throat chakra. Picture a glowing blue vortex. If the heart is all about connection, the throat is about communication, such as telling the truth, saying what you mean, and meaning what you say.
The throat chakra connects to the heart chakra below and the third eye chakra above. The third eye color is purple and balancing it or stimulating it will give you more spiritual insight and wisdom, which you can then express as part of your inner truth.
The crown chakra’s color is violet. Through your intuition and spiritual awakening, you can connect with the universe and the universe with you. Picture the disk spinning and you sending out healing energy to every living being. Then imagine yourself receiving this healing energy in return.
Do this meditation every day and see what a difference it can make to your health and all aspects of your life you wish to improve.
