Here is a brief explanation of the 7 chakras, what each one represents, their location and the color associated with each one:
1) Root: Base of spine. Feeling grounded, our foundation. Red.
Chakra Meditation is Easy.
1) Seat yourself in a comfortable chair with both feet firmly on the ground. Allow your body to totally relax with your arms at your side. Breathe deeply and evenly. Relax with every breath you take. As you breath release your worries. Allow your mind to become quiet and still.
2) Imagine a red flower bud at the base of your spine (root chakra). Visualize it opening to full bloom. It is vibrant and full of life energy. Feel the flow of positive energy as it is blooming. You feel a sense of being grounded with a firm foundation.
3) Use the same visualization technique with each chakra changing the color of the flower bud until all seven chakras have been cleansed.
When you have completed all 7 chakras you will have unblocked and cleansed the energy deep within you. Throughout the year you can unblock any chakra with the same exercise that applies to the given situation you are encountering. For instance, if a big presentation is coming up at work focus on the throat chakra (communication) and use the blue flower. Are you feeling overwhelmed emotionally focus on the solar plexus? Use the yellow flower.
Pay attention to what you are feeling. Now with this simple exercise you feel empowered and in control of your life! You are energized and ready for anything life has in store for you.
Many Blessings for a Happy and Healthy New Year!
