The idea is that you want to make sure they are fully open and spinning properly so the right amount of energy is flowing in and out of them. Because these energy vortexes affect your organs, body systems, and mental states, it benefits you to keep them functioning optimally.
During a chakra balancing meditation, you visualize or sense your energy centers in order to clear and balance chakras for mind body healing and wellness.
Usually, you focus on bringing in specific colors or sounds to each area. You may also visualize spinning or cleaning each vortex. This can be done just with your mind, or add to the visualization by using your hands and your breath.
It sounds complicated, but once you become familiar with the seven chakra and their colors and tones, doing a basic chakra clearing and balance is quick and easy. There are many lovely guided chakra meditations available, such as the lovely one you can experience on this page. You will also find directions for a heart chakra and a chakra color meditation you can do on your own.
This relaxing chakra balancing meditation shows you the placement of your seven energy centers along with corresponding colors, musical notes, chants and affirmations. Do chant along once you learn them.
Step 1 - Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Imagine that your feet are grounded to the earth.
Step 2 - Now visualize or sense a large ball of bright white light above your head. All of the colored light you are going to bring down comes from this light ball.
Step 3 - Visualize or sense red as the primary color of the light ball. Take a slow full breath and bring this red light through the top of your head all the way down your spine to the base between your legs. Let the entire area fill with red. Don't worry if you fill it too much. Adjust your image or discharge the excess through your legs into the earth.
Step 4 - Repeat step three for each of the 7 chakra centers, changing the ball to the color of the next chakra. If you need to discharge excess energy from the upper chakras, release it into the universe.
Step Five - Breathe slowly for a few seconds before opening your eyes.
When you are comfortable with this chakra balancing meditation, you can speed it up by visualizing the ball of light above your head and then imagining each colored light coming down and and filling their areas quickly in turn.
Here is a lovely and simple heart chakra balancing meditation. This is a very soothing and calming practice.
The heart center unifies all the other centers and is the transition chakra from the material or physical world to the spiritual. It has the strongest biomagnetic energy of all.
Step 1 - Place your hands gently on the center your chest, one on top of the other, near your heart.
Step 2 - Close your eyes and take one or two breaths with your hands still.
Step 3 - Then begin circling very slowly in a clockwise direction. If you start at the top of the clock you will move to the left side of yourself first.
Keep your attention inward, focusing on your breath and your hands as they gently move the skin in this area. Do not try to control your breath. Pace your rotations so each one takes around two breaths. You may feel this area heating up. This can be deeply meditative and soothing. Continue for at least a few rotations.
Step 4 - It is also nice to end by stilling your hands and bringing in love to yourself from the universe on the in-breath and breathing out negativity on the out-breath.
Likewise, you can send love out to the universe on the out-breath. There is no right or wrong here, just what works best for you at the moment.
