Guided Chakra Meditation
I've written and recorded a new meditation for you.
This meditation will take you on to a journey, it starts with the root chakra and as you climb up the mountain, you also climb up the chakras in your body.
You can find a lot of information about the chakras on the Internet, so I will give you just some basic information about the seven chakras, and. then feel free to use my guided meditation
We start with the first one
The Root Chakra
We can find the root chakra at the base of the spine. It has a red color and is associated with the element earth.
Its characteristics are:
-Basic Needs (Food, sleep, shelter....)
The root chakra is our foundation, the foundation of our life and the foundation of ourself. When this chakra is well balanced we feel stable and secure. We tend to forget this chakra, because a lot of us want to focus on the higher chakras, but this chakra is so essential, because it keeps us grounded.
When this chakra is blocked, or out of balance, we may have tendencies toward cynicism and greed. We may feel overly anxious, or we are even ruled by fear. Being very negative is also a sign of an unbalanced root chakra.
To activate your Root Chakra you can start to connect with nature, par example through hiking or gardening. Also you can start cooking for yourself and eat red food.
You can also use crystals; par example red jasper, onyx or hematite.
The Sacral Chakra
This chakra is just below the navel, it is orange and its element is water.
This chakra is related to:
This chakra allows us to feel, to feel the outer and the inner world. It is important for our sexuality, it allows us to feel the pleasure of physical sensations.
The sacral chakra also gives us the opportunity to be flexible in our life, through the element of water, it shows us that everything flows and that everything is in motion.
When balanced, we have nurturing and harmonious relationships.
When the sacral chakra is blocked or out of balance, you may have the feeling to be overwhelmed by your feelings, or the opposite, you feel numb, you may also have a lack of sexual desire, or if the chakra is over active you may have sexual obsessions.
Also a feeling of dependency may occur. We need others to feel happy.
To activate your Sacral Chakra, you just have to feel your body again, just start dancing around.
Let go of emotional baggage, maybe journaling could help you with this.
Try hip opening Yoga Poses and eat orange food.
Crystals to use : Orange Calcite, Orange Aventurine, Citrine.
The Solar Plexus Chakra
You find this chakra in the upper belly area, the solar plexus. It is a yellow chakra and it belongs to the element of fire.
Associated meanings of the solar plexus chakra are :
If this chakra is well balanced, you are able to judge with a clear mind, you are not dependent on others believes, but you know exactly what you want from life. You know that you are responsible for your own life.
It also talks about a healthy self-image.
When this chakra is out of balance, you may want to take control over others, or the opposite you feel helpless and unable to act. Maybe you see life through a filter, your view on life is very narrow. Maybe you are manipulative or you can't accept other people views. When blocked it could be that you have a lot of ideas and plans, but you are unable too bring them to realization.
You can bring your Solar Plexus Chakra back in balance, simply by going outside more, the sun is related to this chakra and it needs the sight of the sun. Again eating yellow food can help.
Bring some yellow flowers in your home. Also daily affirmations may help, like:
- I am enough
- I am able to accept other people's way
- I believe in myself
and so on...
Crystals to use : Citrine, Tiger's Eye, Amber, Yellow Jade and Sunstone.
The Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is located at the center of your chest. Its color is green and the element is air.
The heart chakra is associated with:
- Love for yourself and others
When your heart chakra is open and well balanced you feel a deep connection to others and your surrounding. The exchange of energy is in harmony. You are able to appreciate the beauty that is around you.
When the chakra is blocked, over active or out of balance, you have difficulties to connect with others, you can't be compassionate and you feel no empathy for other people. Maybe you are closed of and you don't want to share your feelings with others. Also extreme jealousy could indicate an out of balance chakra.
To open and balance your heart chakra, allow love to come back to your life. Love yourself again. Also start to forgive others and to forgive yourself. Eat green food and imagine green light surrounding you.
Crystals to use : Malachite, Rose Quartz, Jade, Green Calcite.
You find it at the center of your throat, its color is blue and the associated element is sound.
The Throat Chakra is associated with :
- Good sense of timing
If this chakra is well balanced you are able to express yourself, you know your truth, your purpose in life and you live your creativity. It is also associated with the connection to spirit. When your throat chakra is blocked, it is possible that you are timid, insecure and very introverted. When your throat chakra is over active, it could lead to gossiping or being verbally aggressive. Imbalances can show in fear of talking, a small voice, telling lies and not being able to keep a secret. Also a lack of connection with purpose could indicate a imbalanced chakra.
To open and balance your throat chakra, try to drink more water, and eat more fruit. Clear the air in your home, you can use incense or use a smudge stick. Express yourself, talk more and tell others your ideas, your worries or whatever comes to your mind. Sing out loud, you can do this everywhere you want.
Crystals to use: Aquamarine, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise.
Third Eye Chakra
You cand find this chakra between your eyebrows, its color is purple and its element is the supreme element, the combination of all the elements together.
The third eye chakra is related to :
- Psychic abilities
-Wisdom and Insight
The third eye chakra is difficult to describe, it is associated with the subtle energies. It goes beyond the physical realm. When this chakra is active, you are able to see in a different way, you can see beyond the illusions and you are able to connect with higher realms.
When your third eye chakra is out of balance, you may feel stuck in your daily routine and you are not able to see beyond your problems. You may have a lack of clarity or you reject everything that is related to spirituality.
You can balance your third eye chakra through mindful breathing and meditation. Bring in blue and purple colors into your home. Start a dream journal, write down what you dream.
Crystals to use: Amethyst, Fluorite and Obsidian.
Your crown chakra is just above your head, its color is white or a very deep purple.
It is related to:
- Awareness of what is sacred
-Connection with the limitless
- Liberation from limiting patterns
When our crown chakra is in balance we are able to feel a blissful union with all there is. We are one with the universe. We can see clear and we have access to enlightened wisdom.
When out of balanced it can manifest in being cynical towards what is sacred, living to much in the head and being disconnected from the body and earthly matters. It can also manifest in being closed-minded.
To balance the crown chakra, again meditation is a good way to start. Listen to healing music, maybe even use binaural sounds. Know when to enjoy silence.
Crystals to use : Clear Quartz, Diamond, Selenite and Amethyst.
