A Chakra Rebalancing Meditation

This exercise can be done anytime you feel tired, stressed or stuck.

Make yourself comfortable. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath in and exhale out.

Allow your breathing to become more and more relaxed.

Rub your hands together. Feel the energy.

Now take your hands and lightly place them at the base of your spine – the root chakra. This chakra is red.  Your root chakra keeps you grounded and helps you navigate everyday life. Now picture a ball of red light glowing in this area. This is actual energy, not just a picture in your mind’s eye. With each breath start to feel more anchored and secure. Breathe in red light and let this energy rebalance your first chakra.

Now place your hands about two inches below your belly button – the sacral chakra. This chakra is orange. Breathe in healing orange light and direct it to this area. As you continue to flood the sacral chakra with orange energy - let go of any emotional energy, stress or discomfort.  Be here a moment and let the orange energy rebalance your second chakra.

Gently move your hands and rest them on your upper abdomen– the solar plexus chakra. This chakra is yellow. Deeply inhale yellow light into this area and let go of any negative thoughts, emotions and past experiences. Spend some time allowing the solar plexus chakra to rebalance itself.

Next, put your hands on your chest - the heart chakra. This chakra is green and symbolizes self–love and love for others. With each breath, allow more and more love into your heart. Feel at peace as harmony flows through your chest and rebalances your heart chakra.

Now move your hands to your neck – the throat chakra. This chakra is a vibrant blue color. Here is where you communicate your truth to the world and where you express to others the beauty you see. Feel this blue energy soaking into your throat chakra and restoring balance.

Next place your hands on your forehead - the third eye chakra. This chakra is an indigo color. This is your intuition and wisdom center - where you see and align to knowledge. Breathe in indigo and let this energy rebalance your third eye chakra.

Now gently touch the top of your head - the crown chakra. This chakra is purple. This is your connection to Universal Energy – U.E is everywhere and in everyone. Deeply breathe in purple and allow a feeling of oneness and connectedness to rebalance your crown charka and spread down throughout your body.

Now spend a few minutes tuning in to your 7 chakras and experience them healthy, balanced and open.

Continue to breathe. When you are ready gently open your eyes.

An Introduction to the Chakras - 1st Chakra

THE FIRST CHAKRA

 OFFICIAL NAME: Root Chakra

LOCATION IN THE BODY: The base of the spine for men; the ovaries for women

COLOR: Red

 The first chakra relates to life and survival in the physical world, including where you live, where you work, and how you navigate the world.

The first chakra facilitates grounding and stability. Grounding acts as an anchor for the body and helps you deal with stress and problems in a calm and balanced way. Grounding also protects the body from being overwhelmed by the higher frequencies in the upper chakras.

WHEN THE FIRST CHAKRA RUNS SMOOTHLY IT HELPS YOU

  • Manage Your Fears
  • Create a Strong Sense of Worth 
  • Live in Abundance and Not Scarcity
  • Release Programming Inherited from your Family, Society and Gender

HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE A BLOCK

  • Tolerating or Attracting Mistreatment by Others
  • Feelings of Not Fitting in or Belonging
  • Abandonment Issues
  • Health Problems

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR FIRST CHAKRA IS TOO OPEN OR TOO CLOSED

Someone with a first chakra that is too open might not be afraid of anything-even to the point of recklessness, while someone with a closed first chakra might be completely shut down by fear.

Having a strong and healthy first chakra is going to allow you to feel safe and secure in your body.  When the body feels secure, it makes it easier to work with the energies of the higher chakras.
