Ten Minutes Meditation to Balance Your Chakras
This is a very simple meditation to open and balance your chakras. You can do it ten minutes.
This mediation exercise will take you through the entire body chakra system, explaining what each chakra represents and suggesting a mantra you can use to re-program your sub-conscious mind.
Usually I start with my root chakra and work my way up to the crown chakra, but the path you take does not have to be in sequence. You may want to start with the crown and work your way down, or pick energy points at random.
You can even use this meditation technique to focus on any energy point you like. If you want to concentrate on a specific emotion or character flaw you would like to purify, focus on that one point for 10 minutes.
- Start by taking in a long, deep breath through your nose. Continue breathing to you feel a pull in the pit of your stomach. This is the tandem, the point ancient sages say is the centre of creation.
- Then exhale slowly through you notice, concentrating on the breath as it is expelled from your body.
Breathe in again, noticing the breath and the rise of your stomach. Then exhale, watch the breath.
- Continue breathing in this way and stay with your breath for a minute. As you do this, ask yourself if it is okay to open your chakras and bring them into balance.
- If you are happy to continue, concentrate on the chakra you want to bring into balance simply by imaging the corresponding colour of the energy point and repeating the mantra associated with each chakra as described below.
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine and is related to stability; how secure you feel in yourself and around others. When open, and balanced it eliminates fear and you feel grounded and confident.
To open and balance the root chakra, bring your attention to the area around your groin and imagine a red light glowing from your butthole and up into the lower part of your stomach.
During meditation on the root chakra, concentrate your focus on the rectum and imagine a bright, red, glowing ball. Repeat this mantra:
I am the master of my mind and have nothing to fear.
Located a few inches under the belly-button, the sacral chakra is the centre of self-love and is the colour of orange. Opening the chakra will make you feel emotionally balanced and optimistic.
During meditation on the sacral chakra, concentrate your focus in the lower part of your stomach and imagine a bright, orange orb whilst repeating this mantra:
I love myself, the world and everything in it.
Solar plexus chakra
The solar plexus chakra is located in between the lower rib cages, and dominates willpower and self-direction. It is from here that you summon the strength and the courage to overcome obstacles.
Like its name suggests, the solar plexus is yellow and like the sun has immense energy to burn away fear and negative energy that prevents you from achieving what you most desire.
When the sacral chakra and the yellow solar plexus work “in tandem” they work in your “tandem”, the point the ancients said “is the centre of creation.”
When fully opened, and balanced, the solar plexus region is where you find the strength and courage. Tap into this energy to spur you into action and drive you towards your goal.
During meditation, imagine a fiery, yellow sphere in the centre of your lower ribs and repeat this mantra:
I am confident in everything that I do and will overcome all challenges in my path.
The heart chakra is green and governs love, compassion and generosity towards others. It is the most important and highest chakra of the four base (physical) chakras.
Located at the centre of the body’s energy field, the heart chakra connects the lower chakras to the higher chakras. You could say it’s HQ, the decision maker that bridges the physical base consciousness with the forgotten higher consciousness.
It is perhaps the hardest chakra to open, as breaking down the barriers of your heart depends on how much you have been hurt in the past. You must forgive whoever has caused your suffering and accept that whatever happened was a lesson from the higher self.
When mediating on the heart chakra, focus on the centre of the chest and imagine a bright, green light emanating love, compassion and understanding. Repeat this mantra:
I love all things in the Universe and am everything in the Universe.
The throat chakra governs your honesty and ability to express yourself. It gives you the power and the strength to speak to anyone and be comfortable in their presence.
However, this gift is also fuelled by the three lower chakras. You will learn more about your throat chakra in situations where you tell little white lies and half-truths to impress people.
This kind of behaviour is because you feel out of your depth and is a sign of an overactive throat chakra. You talk yourself up, but in reality, have self-doubt and are living in delusion.
An open and balanced throat chakra will make you feel comfortable speaking the truth about yourself or any subject to anybody. You speak eloquently and confidently without hesitation.
When meditating on the throat chakra, focus your attention on the throat and imagine a glowing blue ball giving you the inspiration to speak smoothly and freely.
Repeat this mantra:
I am confident in my words and opinions and can speak freely without hesitation.
Third eye chakra
For many practitioners of self-realisation, the third eye chakra is one that perhaps receives the most attention. It is the third eye chakra that gives us increased awareness of intuition and telepathy.
The latest theory by online sources is that the third eye chakra is located in the thalamus at the centre of your brain. More precisely, the ajna is believed to be the pineal gland, although this is unproven by science.
If you squeeze the bridge of your nose where it meets your forehead, you will feel a light pulse of energy. That is your third eye chakra. It will open your mind to new worlds, new perceptions and new opportunities.
Through your third eye, you will have visions that reflect what you are facing in your life right now.
Like dreams, these visions are profoundly symbolic and difficult to understand. Reading myths and learning alchemical symbolism might help.
Otherwise, trust your intuition. The third eye chakra can help you increase your powers of intuition through emotion and experience. Try to connect your emotion to the experience.
To meditate on the third eye chakra, imagine a blue orb in the centre of your forehead. The best way to open the third eye is through vibration. Repeat the mantra:
Thoh (pronounced like toe in English)
Located at the top of your head, the crown chakra is the antenna that connects our vibrational frequencies with our higher self in the amorphic resonance field, also known as the Akashi records or the collective unconscious.
Regardless of how you look at the crown chakra, it has a mystical, or spiritual connection that cannot be rationally explained by modern science; only religious dogma.
Essentially, the Sahasrara connects us with the vibrational energy of the universe and is the seat of intuitive knowledge and wisdom.
When opened, and balanced, we have a strong connection to our higher self and when closed, suffer from spiritual disorder.
Meditation of any kind is beneficial to the health of the crown chakra. If visualising a bright light is easier for you, imagine a white or violet ray of light projecting from the top of your head into the Universe.
Otherwise, simply sitting still in silence helps you connect with your higher self. Therefore, there is no mantra. Just empty your mind and be in the now.
