Using Meditation To Clear Chakra Blockages
The art of chakra healing has been used for centuries to balance important energy centres in our body called chakras. We can use a number of different tools such as stones or meditation during chakra balancing. The end result will be a physically healthier body and a happier, more peaceful you.
According to practitioners of chakra healing, we all have seven primary chakras that correspond with vital areas of our bodies and emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives. The seven chakras form a line from the base of your spine to the top of your head. Chakras have their own color, vibrational frequency, and symbol. For example, the first chakra is found at the base of the spine and is known as the root chakra. This chakra governs the spinal column, kidneys, legs, feet, rectum, and immune system. So, when this chakra is out of balance, it may lead to lower back pain, varicose veins, leg cramps, rectal conditions, depression, as well as immune related disorders. A lack of balance in the root chakra may be caused by feelings of low self esteem, insecurity, or family concerns.
Other chakras include the sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow, and crown chakras. Each energy centre must be vibrating at the proper frequency independent of one another for the entire body to vibrate in harmony. Therefore, each chakra is equally important to optimal functioning of the body according to the chakra healing tradition.
Many powerful tools can affect the vibration of the chakra, and that's where chakra balancing comes into play. Chakra stones, the human voice, music, chants, mantras and chakra meditation bring the frequency of the chakras back into proper vibrational alignment. For example, the root chakra is greatly affected by the hematite, onyx, ruby or garnet gemstones. During chakra healing a practitioner may use one or all of these chakra stones to cleanse your root chakra and bring it into harmony.
Chakra meditation may also be used to open up your chakra centres and improve the flow of positive psychic energy in your body. During meditation you simply concentrate on each of the chakras starting with the first one and working your way up to your crown chakra. By imagining the flow of energy from chakra to chakra, you are helping to remove blockages in each energy centre that might be causing pain and disease.
Because the chakras govern every organ and system in your body, chakra healing has far reaching health implications. Chakra balancing can lead to improved heart, lung, brain, immune and digestive function and may also help with depression, anxiety, and other emotional imbalances. Many believe that the chakras have the power to transform your life both physically and spiritually. It is only when our chakras are in sync that we can truly access higher levels of consciousness.
Using Meditation To Clear Blockages
In meditation we focus on the base centre, bring a bright light up through each chakra to the crown centre and back, taking deep breaths through your nose and letting go through our mouth slowly while only focusing on the light and the chakras.
If there is a blockage you will feel it. Therefore, you need to understand chakra meditation before you start. It's a wonderful way to cleanse your body of blockages. If one of your chakras is blocked you will feel a strange sensation, or different feelings, just relax and either stop or continue by focusing on just that chakra to find out what the problem is.
Any blockage can be worked out and healed. This is why people feel out of balance. One or more of their chakras are usually blocked. When you do the meditation, you need to be in a peaceful and quiet place. Sit with your feet on the ground and the palms of your hands facing up. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths before you start so you can relax.
A Chakra Meditation To Recharge The Soul
Chakra meditation helps to strengthen weak chakras and will benefit your health, wisdom and happiness. If you need to recharge your body, mind and soul then using chakra meditation is an excellent way to revitalize you from the inside out.
How to perform a chakra meditation:
Start your meditation by sitting down, feet on floor, in a quiet room. Make sure that your spine is straight, but not stiff. Close your eyes then take a deep breath and start to relax. Now, go through each chakra in turn, starting with the root chakra.
Imagine that you are drawing energy up from the earth, a beautiful white light, through the root chakra and that this is building up in the base of your spine. It enters the root chakra and turns to a beautiful red vibrant light, circling and cleansing the chakra.
The light continues to the sacral chakra: feel the concentration of energy building up around beneath your navel and visualize a flow of warm orange energy circling and cleansing this chakra centre.
The light continues to the solar plexus chakra, let your stomach muscles relax deeply and sense the movement of the energy through your diaphragm, circling and cleansing the chakra.
Next is the heart chakra, as the light continues, circles and cleanses, imagine your heart getting stronger with every breath. See and feel a bright green light radiating out from this area.
The light progresses on to the throat chakra, breath in with force. Then gradually relax your tongue, shoulders and neck, as the light turns a vibrant blue, circles and cleanses.
For the brow chakra, keeping your eyes closed, focus on your “third eye” (the point between your eyebrows). Endeavour to see this area even though your eyes are close and observe what you are seeing. See the light swirling, cleaning, and glowing a beautiful indigo colour.
Finally, it’s the crown chakra the light goes to. Visualize a beautiful lotus with a thousand petals blossoming from the tip of your head. As you visualize, see the colour change from a deep violet through to a brilliant white light.
Done correctly, the chakra meditation can bring you into union with the Spirit. It is a very powerful form of meditation and helps you to stabilize your body, bringing an inner peace and harmony to you.
