Chakra meditation involves focusing on the different energies that lie within our bodies. There are 7 known Chakras and they are our energy vortexes: allowing life energy to flow into and out of our aura.
These vortexes vitalise the physical body and bring about the development of our self-consciousness. The reason why one needs to unblock their chakras is that a blocked or improperly aligned chakra, will prevent energy (prana) from flowing throughout your body, causing disharmony and resulting in a very pessimistic or negative mood. In the process, you will regain balance which is critical to healing of both physical and mental symptoms.
The steps involved to performing chakra meditation are fairly simple and focus should be given to one chakra at one time. In general, 5 techniques to unblock chakras are:
1. Visualization Through Meditation
A very effective technique and simple in execution. You will need to meditate and clear your mind, allowing you to focus on the Chakra in question and visualize its associated colour. You can then focus on the goal that you intend to achieve.
2. The Crystal Method
As the name suggests, this method requires the use of crystals, held directly on the Chakra or right over the Chakra for at least three minutes (but not longer than five).
3. Sound Therapy
Music or singing bowls are used in this technique, which can be purchase at metaphysical stores along with a set of detailed instructions.
4. The Soothing Massage
A full body massage is an effective way to unblock all of the Chakras in the human body. Besides that, it helps stimulate your vital systems and promote healing.
5. The Right Mix Of Exercise And Nutrition
Proper nutrition and sufficient exercise is needed to keep healthy and have a energized body, especially in your Chakras and aura.
A combination of these techniques can keep your Chakras in order and you feeling light, happy and aligned.
