In this post I offer what I believe to be the very best chakra meditation. This series of short meditations can be used all together as a full chakra balancing and clearing meditation. Or you may use each meditation singularly as a stand alone meditation for the chakra you wish to open, clear and align.
A major benefit of working with the Chakras is for you to be able to create wholeness within yourself.
This allows you to bring aspects of your own consciousness, the physical and the spiritual, into balance and harmony.
This will allow you to acknowledge, integrate, and accept all aspects of your being which need to be balanced, nurtured and healed.
Stage 1 – Begin The Best Chakra Meditation With Deep Belly Breathing
Find a comfortable position ensuring your back is straight.
Close your eyes and begin “Deep Belly Breathing.
If you are just starting with meditation you can practice deep belly breathing by doing the following:
1) Lie down flat on the floor
2) Breathe in through your nose.
3) As you inhale you want to notice your belly fills and rises first followed by your chest.
4) Breathe out through your mouth
5) By practicing this lying down almost ensures you cannot do it incorrectly.
6) Once you have practiced for a while and you feel comfortable, you may wish to practice the deep belly breathing sitting up.
7) It is entirely up to you if perform the meditation sitting or lying, most important is your spine is straight and you perform deep belly breathing.
Breathe in deeply through your nose, filling your belly and then chest, exhale through the mouth. Ensure there is no pause between inhalation and exhalation. Keep your breathing as 1 constant flow- in and out.
Feel yourself relaxing.
Maintain this deep breathe breathing for about five minutes. Become aware of your body as you breathe. You can do this by focusing on your breath going in and out.
Allow your breathing to become deeper and more rhythmic. With each breath feel yourself relaxing more and more.
Now move your attention to Muladhara the Root Chakra at the base of your spine.
Best Chakra Meditation – Stage 2 – Activating Muladhara The Root Chakra
Visualize that you are breathing in and out through your Root Chakra, which is nestled at the base of the spine.
As you breathe in see the breathe traveling from your nose and all the way down to the base of your spine to Muladhara. As you exhale see the breathe travel from the root chakra, up your spine and out through your mouth.
On each exhalation, visualize or sense the energy in Muladhara growing stronger.
Visualize Muladhara as a fiery red ball that grows brighter and stronger with each exhalation.
Allow your consciousness to move down and into Muladharas energy. See yourself become one with Muladhara. Now feel yourself being drawn downward into the earth.
As you move down and into the earth pay attention to how you feel physically, emotionally and mentally.
Be open and aware to anything you experience. It will be different for everyone.
By meditating on the Root chakra you will allow yourself to open to connect with the Earth, to ground yourself and connect with energies that bring strength and solidity.
Maintain this meditation for ten minutes or until you sense it is complete.
When you are ready to return to the present, say “Every time I reach this relaxed state I am learning to use my mind more creatively. I am becoming more aware of any energy blocks within my root energy so that I may heal myself.”
See yourself move out of the ball of energy, see yourself as you are – seated or laying down and count from one to five feeling refreshed, relaxed and peaceful as you return to the room and open your eyes.
Best Chakra Meditation – Stage 3 – Activate Swadhisthana The Sacral Chakra
Now place your attention on Swadhisthana the Sacral Chakra.
Visualize breathing in and out through the Sacral Chakra.
As you inhale your breath travels from your nose, down your spine and all the way to your pelvis and sexual organs.
On each exhalation, visualize or sense the energy in the Sacral Chakra growing stronger and see your breath travel back up the spine and out through the mouth.
Visualize the Sacral Chakra as an vibrant orange ball which grows brighter and stronger on each exhalation. Once you sense the Sacral Chakra is strong and vibrant allow your consciousness to move down into the ball of energy.
Become one with the Sacral Chakras energy and feel yourself beginning to radiate outward from the Sacral Chakra, through your body and then out into your environment. Feel the sense of magic and wonder that radiates from the Sacral Chakra through meditation.
Ensure you pay attention to how you feel physically, emotionally and mentally. Be aware of what you experience. Pay attention to any energetic change you experience. Just observe; do not try to influence anything.
By meditating on the Sacral Chakra you will get in touch with different aspects of your sexuality as well as the creative process.
Do this part for about ten minutes or until you are satisfied you are complete. When you are ready to return, say “Every time I reach this relaxed state, I learn to use my mind more creatively and become more aware of energy blocks in Swadhisthana so that I may clear them and heal myself.”
See yourself release the Sacral Chakras ball of energy and bring yourself back to consciousness by counting from one to five feeling refreshed, relaxed and peaceful.
Return to the room and open your eyes.
Best Chakra Meditation Stage 4 – Activate Manipura The Solar Plexus Chakra
Best Chakra Meditation – Activating Manipura The Solar Plexus Chakra
Now place your attention on the third Chakra, Manipura the Solar Plexus.
Visualize you are breathing in and out through Manipura. See your breath moving down and into your Solar Plexus Chakra on the inhalation and all the way up and out through the mouth as you exhale.
On each exhalation visualize or sense the energy in Manipura growing stronger.
Visualize the golden yellow ball of Manipura growing brighter and stronger on each exhalation.
Allow your consciousness to move down into Manipura. Become one with the ball of energy. Now feel yourself begin to radiate outward from Manipura, see the golden yellow light spread throughout your body and then expand out and into your environment.
As this happens pay attention to how you feel physically, emotionally and mentally. Be aware of what you experience. It is different for everyone.
You may feel yourself become watery and fluid as your consciousness radiates from this center, and you may feel a profound empathy.
This empathy, a product of trust and contentment, will permit you to feel compassion for the pain and suffering of others as well as for yourself.
Surrender to these feelings and let them flow through you.
Do this part for about ten minutes or until you are satisfied your meditation is complete.
When you are ready, say “Every time I reach this relaxed state I learn to use my mind more creatively, I allow myself empathy and am aware of the energy blocks within Manipura which need to be released so that I may heal myself.”
Remove your consciousness from Manipuras energy and see the golden yellow ball released into the atmosphere.
Now count from one to five feeling more refreshed, relaxed and peaceful than before.
