How to Open Your Spiritual Chakras

In this Article: Article Summary Community Q&A

According to Hindu and/or Buddhist belief, chakras are vast (yet confined) pools of energy in our bodies which govern our psychological qualities. There are said to be seven main chakras in all; four in our upper body, which govern our mental properties, and three in the lower body, which govern our instinctual properties. They are:

The Muladhara (root) chakra. The Svadhisthana (sacral) chakra. The Manipura (solar plexus) chakra. The Anahata(heart) chakra. The Visuddhi (throat) chakra. The Ajna (third eye) chakra. The Sahasrara (crown) chakra.
According to Buddhist/Hindu teaching, all of the chakras should contribute to a human’s well-being. Our instincts would join forces with our feelings and thinking. Some of our chakras are usually not open all the way (meaning, they operate just like when you were born), but some are over-active, or even near closed. If the chakras are not balanced, peace with the self cannot be achieved.

Read on to discover the art of becoming aware of the chakras, as well as a very reliable technique designed to open them.

Steps

  1. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 1

    1
    Understand that if you are opening your chakras, there is no need to try to make over-active chakras less active. They are simply compensating for the inactivity of closed chakras. Once all of the chakras are opened, the energy evens out, and becomes balanced.

  2. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2

    2
    Open the Root Chakra (red). This chakra is based on being physically aware and feeling comfortable in many situations. If opened, you should feel well-balanced and sensible, stable and secure. You don’t distrust people around you for no reason.You feel present in what is happening right now and very connected to your physical body. If it’s under-active: you tend to be fearful or nervous, and easily feel unwelcome. If it’s over-active: you may be materialistic and greedy. You feel as if you should be secure and are unwelcome to a change.

    • Use the body and become aware of it. Do yoga, walk around the block, or do some manual house-cleaning. These activities let your body become known to you and will strengthen the chakra.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2Bullet1

    • Ground yourself. This means that you should connect with the ground, and feel it beneath you. To do this, stand up straight and relaxed, put your feet shoulder-width apart, and slightly bend your knees. Move your pelvis forward a little, and keep your body balanced, so that your weight is evenly distributed over the soles of your feet. Then sink your weight forward. Stay in this position for several minutes.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2Bullet2

    • After grounding yourself, sit cross-legged, as shown in the picture below.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2Bullet3

    • Let the tips of your thumb and index finger touch gently, in a peaceful motion.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2Bullet4

    • Concentrate on the Root Chakra and what it stands for, at the spot in between the genitals and the anus.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2Bullet5

    • Silently, yet clearly, chant the sound “LAM.”
    • All this time, let yourself relax, still thinking about the chakra, it’s meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed. You may have a “clean” feeling.
    • Visualize a closed red flower. Imagine a very powerful energy radiating it: it slowly opens showing four red petals full of energy.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2Bullet9

    • Contract the perineum holding breath and releasing.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 2Bullet10

  3. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 3

    3
    Open the Sacral Chakra (Orange). This chakra deals with feeling and sexuality. If open, feeling is released with liberty and are expressed without you being over-emotional. You would be open to affinity and can be passionate as well as outgoing. You also have no problems based on sexuality. If it’s under-active: you tend to be unemotional or impassive, and are not very open to anybody. If it’s over-active: you tend to be sensitive and emotional all the time. You may also be very sexual.

    • Sit on your knees, with your back straight, but relaxed.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 3Bullet1

    • Lay your hands in your lap, palms ups, on top of each other. Left hand underneath, the palm touching the back fingers of the right hand, and the thumbs touch gently.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 3Bullet2

    • Concentrate on the Sacral Chakra and what it stands for, at the sacral bone (lower back).
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 3Bullet3

    • Silently, yet clearly, chant the sound “VAM.”
    • All this time, let yourself relax, still thinking about the chakra, it’s meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed. Again, you may have a “clean” feeling.
  4. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 4

    4
    Open the Navel Chakra (yellow). This chakra encircles confidence, especially when in a group. When open, you should feel in control and have a good feeling of dignity in yourself. If it’s under-active: you tend to be passive and indecisive. You could be frequently apprehensive and this doesn’t reward you. If it’s over-active: you tend to be imperious and aggressive.

    • Sit on your knees, with your back straight, but relaxed.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 4Bullet1

    • Put your hands before your stomach, slightly below your solar plexus. Let the fingers join at the tops, all pointing away from you. Cross the thumbs and straighten the fingers (this is important).
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 4Bullet2

    • Concentrate on the Navel Chakra and what it stands for, at the spine, slightly above the navel.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 4Bullet3

    • Silently, yet clearly, chant the sound “RAM.”
    • All this time, let yourself relax, even more, continuing to think about the chakra, it’s meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed. You should have a “clean” feeling (for every chakra).
  5. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 5

    5
    Open the Heart Chakra (green). This chakra is all about love, caring, and endearment. When open, you seem to be compassionate and friendly, always working in amicable relationships. If it’s under-active: you tend to be cold and unfriendly. If it’s over-active: you tend to be so “loving” towards people that you suffocate them, and you could be seen as selfish for it.

    • Sit cross-legged.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 5Bullet1

    • Let the tips of your index finger and thumb touch on both hands.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 5Bullet2

    • Put your left hand on your left knee and your right hand in front of the lower part of your breastbone.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 5Bullet3

    • Concentrate on the Heart Chakra and what it stands for, at the spine, level with the heart.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 5Bullet4

    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound “YAM.”
    • All this time, continue to relax your body and think of the chakra, it’s meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed, and the “clean” feeling returns and/or intensifies within your body.
  6. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 6

    6
    Open the Throat Chakra (light blue). This chakra is based on self-expression and communication. When the chakra is open, expressing yourself is easy, and art seems to be a great way to do this. If it’s under-active: you tend not to speak too much, so you are classified as shy. If you lie often, this chakra can be blocked. If it’s over-active: you tend to speak so much, it annoys a lot of people. You could also be a pretty bad listener.

    • Once again, sit on your knees.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 6Bullet1

    • Cross your fingers on the inside of your hands, without the thumbs. Let the thumbs touch at the tops, and pull them up a bit.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 6Bullet2

    • Concentrate on the Throat Chakra and what it stands for, at the base of the throat.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 6Bullet3

    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound “HAM.”
    • All this time, keep on relaxing your body, thinking of the chakra, it’s meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
    • Keep doing this for about five minutes, and the “clean” feeling will intensify once again.
  7. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 7

    7
    Open the Third Eye Chakra (Indigo). Like its name, this chakra deals with insight. When open, you have excellent clairvoyance and tend to dream a lot. If it’s under-active: you tend to look up to other people to think for you. Relying on beliefs too often, you also tend to be confused most of the time. If it’s over-active: you tend to live in a world imagination all day long. In the extremes, you could suffer from frequent daydreams or even hallucinations.

    • Sit cross-legged.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 7Bullet1

    • Put your hands in front of the lower part of the breast. The middle fingers should be straight and touch the tops, pointing away from you. The other fingers are bent and touch at the two upper phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and meet at the tops.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 7Bullet2

    • Concentrate on the Third Eye Chakra and what it stands for, a little above the center of the two eyebrows.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 7Bullet3

    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound “OM” or “AUM.”
    • All this time, relaxation of the body should come a bit naturally and continue to think of the chakra, it’s meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
    • Keep doing this until the same “clean” feeling seems to come back or intensify.
  8. Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 8

    8
    Open the Crown Chakra (purple). This is the seventh and most spiritual chakra. It encircles a being’s wisdom and being one with the universe. When this chakra is open, prejudice disappears from your To Do list, and you seem to become more aware of the world and it’s connection to yourself. If it’s under-active: you tend to not be very spiritual and may be quite rigid in your thoughts. If it’s over-active: you tend to intellectualize things all the time. Spirituality seems to come first in your mind, and if you are really over-active, you may even ignore your bodily needs (food, water, shelter).

    • Sit cross-legged.
    • Lay your hand on your stomach. Let the little fingers point up and away from you, touching at their tops, and cross the rest of the fingers with the left thumb underneath the right.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 8Bullet2

    • Concentrate on the Crown Chakra and what it stands for, at the very top of your head.
      Image titled Open Your Spiritual Chakras Step 8Bullet3

    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound “NG” (yes, this chant is as hard as it looks).
    • All this time, your body should now be totally relaxed, and your mind should be at peace. However, do not stop concentrating on the Crown Chakra.
    • This meditation is the longest, and should take no less than ten minutes.
    • WARNING: don’t use this meditation for the Crown Chakra if your Root Chakra is not strong or open. Before dealing with this last chakra, you need a strong “foundation” first, which the Root exercises will present to you.

    How do I know if somebody’s energy is positive or negative?

    If your energy is strong enough, you will be very sensitive to the energies of the people around you, which will in turn give you the ability to determine whether or not their energy is more positive or negative.

    What are some things to focus on, or that I need as a beginner for optimal results?

    Concentrate on the color of the chakra you are opening, its meaning, and where on the body it is. Also, on your out/release breath, silently but clearly chant the word associated with it. For example, root chakra is red, bottom of spine, and the chant is “lam.”

  • Question
    If you open your third eye, could you see that a tree can speak?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer

    It is unlikely that you would see a tree speaking. The third eye enables you to see energies better and to visualize better, which is an important tool for healing or Wiccan rituals. A tree lacks a voice or mouth for verbal communication but you may be able to sense the tree’s flow and the harmony of its place in the world.

    Slow, deep breaths or just breathing naturally is fine. Short, fast breaths are not good – that kind of breathing is associated with stress.

    Tips

    • If you are a beginner try not to over-meditate.
    • Try to meditate on a daily basis even if you don’t have much time, it can be for as long as you want.
    • When activating the “third eye” rub lightly in a circle motion around the area where the third eye chakra is out.
    • Sit in a quiet and warm area, treat this exercise as you would a meditation . During the summer, you could sit in a field or in a garden. During the winter, a warm room with no distractions. If you have a sauna, although few people do, it is an excellent place to sit, calm yourself, and clear your head.

    Article Summary X

    To open your root chakra, which is related to how physically aware and comfortable you are with your body, use your body more by doing things like yoga, going for walks, or cleaning around the house. If you want to open your heart chakra, which relates to love and caring, meditate while holding your right hand in front of your heart and focus on how you want your life to change. Keep meditating until you feel completely relaxed.

    Chakras are our energy centers. These openings allow our life energy to flow into and out of our aura. The seven major chakras are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions. The first chakra (root) actually hangs outside of your body. It is located between your thighs, about halfway between your knees and your physical body. The seventh chakra (crown) is located on the top of your head. The remaining chakras, (sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, and third eye), are aligned in sequence along your spine, neck, and skull. Chakras are invisible to the human eye, but they can be perceived intuitively by trained energyworkers.

    There is a brief affirmation given for each gallery image. Read the affirmations outloud or silently to yourself as your eyes focus on the chakra images. Focusing on the chakra images while reading the affirmation statements is intended to help you connect to the life pulse of your wheels of life.

    The seven major chakras have individual functions and purposes. However, the chakra system works best when all the chakras function in concert.

    In drawings and paintings of chakras the symbols are usually depicted as wheels or lotus flowers. Each chakra will appear separate from one another. But, if you were able to view your chakras energetically you would notice that the chakras will naturally blend or bleed into one another.

    Chakras are energy centers with a living pulse. Energy is not static, energy is in constant flux. Chakras not only open and close, they will also expand and retract. When a chakra expands the boundaries separating it from its neighboring chakra/s can become blurred. As the chakras move and interact with one another the colorful imagery might remind you of peering through a kaleidoscope.

    It is not unusual for the sacral and root chakras to intermingle and display a brilliant blood-orange color. The heart and throat chakras may merge and display beautiful blue-green shades when you are singing from the heart.

    When a stressed chakra is shutting down, a healthier chakra will often expand to compensate for the lowering of the whole energy system. The chakras are typically team players. Still, it is not healthy for any one player in a team to pull more than his share of the weight for prolonged periods. Expansion for the sake of picking up the slack will eventually put strain on the relationship. Ultimately, the whole team will suffer. And in the case of your chakras, when the chakras are not functioning together optimally as a healthy team illness and disease manifests.

    Root Chakra Affirmation

    My root chakra is deeply rooted

    The root chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings.
    ~Exploring the Major Chakras

    The root chakra is related to the anus and the adrenal glands. When poorly grounded, your spatial understanding is impaired. You may stumble around physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Grounding enhances your ability to function effectively on a day-to-day basis.
    ~ Drumbeat of the Rainbow Fire

    When the root chakra is blocked an individual may feel fearful, anxious, insecure and frustrated. Problems like obesity, anorexia nervosa, and knee troubles can occur. Root body parts include the hips, legs, lower back and sexual organs.
    ~ Study of the Chakras

    Root Chakra Stones

    • Ruby gemstone encourages one to follow bliss. It also acts as a “plug” for holes in the energy field. Stimulates our basic instinct for survival. Ruby strengthens both the physical and emotional heart. It brings love, confidence, loyalty, and courage.
    • Red Coral is good for helping to “tame” the wildness within. Such as tempers, rages, compulsive disorders. Helps to balance us to the spiritual. A good stimulant for the root chakra. Protects one from depression and despondency.

    ~Healing with Crystals

    Foods that Fuel the Root Chakra

    Root vegetables, protein-rich foods, hot and peppery spices.
    ~Nourishing Your Energy Centers

    Root Chakra Meditation

    The roots of a large tree spread deep underground, anchoring the tree into the earth, use your creative visualization to imagine roots, going down from your body plunging into the depths of the planet and spreading out, just like the roots of that tree. Envision the prominent bulky roots extending downwards below the surface, broadening from the base of your spine. These roots are the essence that will, enable you to draw into your body the positive frequency of the mother earth. You are now beginning to feel the awareness of a reaction from the planet deep below the surface coursing into your space. As this occurs, you visualize the bulky roots that are beginning to entwine with the waters inside the planet’s core, these waters represent the unconditional love, healing the rarefied energy of the Earth. As your roots entwine with the Earth energy use your senses to experience the awareness of unconditional love.

    Sanskrit Name: Swadhisthana
    Location: Lower Abdomen
    Color: Orange

    Sacral Chakra Affirmation

    My sacral chakra juices are creative and bold

    A well-functioning sacral chakra helps maintain a healthy yin-yang balance. Although the sacral chakras is primarily considered the sexual energy center, it is also the center where individual creativity resides.
    ~ Exploring the Major Chakras

    The sacral chakra affects the sexual organs. The functions associated with this center are emotion, vitality, fertility, reproduction, and sexual energy in general. Likewise, any problems in these functions can be identified and resolved through this chakra. The physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the sacral chakra removes any blockages that may hamper these functions.

    • Garnet
    • Moonstone

    Foods that Fuel Your Sacral Chakras

    • Sweet fruits: melons, mangos, strawberries, passion fruit, oranges, coconut, etc.
    • Honey
    • Nuts: almonds, walnuts, etc.
    • Spices: cinnamon, vanilla, carob, sweet paprika, sesame seeds, caraway seeds

    ~Nourishing Your Energy Centers

    Sacral Chakra and Color Therapy

    Orange is a very high energy color. Its creativity juices are extremely intoxicating and sweet tasting. Wearing orange is fun and can make you feel quite playful. Artists love dabbling with orange hues. Orange screams with sexual energy too, not surprising since orange is associated with the sacral chakra. Because of its highly-charged intensity some people cannot comfortably wear this color. Adorning yourself with an orange accent piece can add a hint of playfulness.

    Sanskrit Name: Manipura
    Location: Naval
    Color: Yellow

    Solar Plexus Chakra Affirmation

    My solar plexus feels mellow and calm

    The solar plexus chakra defines our self-esteem. The personality (EGO) that develops during puberty is housed in this chakra.
    ~ Exploring the Major Chakras

    In opening your third chakra, you may reach deep into your own sense of self and find your balance or boundary point. This point is the use of personal power as a weaver of inner and outer power. You have the power to create and accomplish, rather than the power over something or someone. In other words, you have the ability to manifest in the physical world.
    ~ Lost? Reclaiming Your Center

    The solar plexus chakra is related to the digestive organs. It is associated with action, assertion, empowerment, and ego mastery. It is the area where chi or life force is stored. Malfunctions in the navel chakra may leave you feeling tired, powerless, and withdrawn.
    ~ Drumbeat of the Rainbow Fire

    The solar plexus is the driving force to act and to complete the conceptual ization, the visualization that we have in our lives. It is where we find the human talent of commitment.
    ~ The Mystery Hidden Within Each Chakra

    Solar Plexus Mediation

    Sit back, relax, and take in an easy, deep breath. Release your muscles. Yo do not have to exert any effort to sit or lie there. Allow yourself to be fully supported by the chair or floor. Take in another gentle, deep breath and release as you exhale. Now turn your attention to your solar plexus. This is the area of your body between your chest and abdomen. Picture a vibrant, glowing sun in your solar plexus. Feel its warmth and energy. Focus on this sun for a moment. You may never have paid attention to this area of your body before. This sun represents your inner strength, your intuition, and all your inner resources. Allow your sun to glow brighter and stronger each time you pay attention to it.
    ~The Sensitive Person’s Survival Guide

    Focus On Healing The Will Center

    The Will is directly connected with the solar plexus chakra. In order to honor and awaken this place in ourselves, emotional release is essential. Flower essences lend relentless love and support to encourage us through our process of self understanding and acceptance, discernment and integration. ~ Flower Essences for Healing The Will by Holly Beatie

    Sanskrit Name: Anahata
    Location: Heart
    Color: Green or Pink

    Heart Chakra Affirmation:

    My heart is overflowing with love energies.

    The heart chakra is considered to be the love center of our human energy system. Among others, love, heartbreak, grief, pain, and fear, are all emotions that are felt intensely within this energy vortex. For this reason, energy-based therapies that focus on balancing the heart chakra are often the purest healing. Learning self-love is a powerful initiative to undertake in order to secure and maintain a healthy heart chakra.
    ~ Exploring the Major Chakras

    The heart chakra is the place where unconditional love is centered. Unconditional Love is a creative and powerful energy that may guide and help us through the most difficult times. This energy is available in any moment, if we turn our attention to it and use it to free us from our limits and fears.
    ~ Opening Your Heart’s Emotional Power to Transform

    The heart stands at the center of all energies and unifies our being as a whole. It is the point around which all the energies turn. A discord or imbalance in the heart chakra will adversely effect all the other centers. A clearing of the heart chakra will improve the interaction of all the other centers. It is important to maintain a balance to all the energy centers so a healthy level of awareness is manifested in our everyday lives. ~ Clearing the Heart Chakra, Rose Quartz Meditation When the heart chakra is out of balance you may feel sorry for yourself, paranoid, indecisive, afraid of letting go, afraid of getting hurt, or unworthy of love. Physical illnesses include heart attack, high blood pressure, insomnia, and difficult in breathing. When the heart chakra is balanced you may feel compassionate, friendly, empathetic, desire to nurture others and see the good in everyone. Body parts for the fourth chakra include heart, lungs, circulatory system, shoulders, and upper back.

    Throat Chakra




    Vishuddha, throat chakra.
    Getty Image / New Vision Technologies, Inc.

    Sanskrit Name: Vishuddha
    Location: Throat
    Color: Sky Blue

    Throat Chakra Affirmation

    My throat is clear and open, my voice utters truthful words

    The throat chakra is our voice center. It is through our spoken word that we express ourselves to others. The healthfulness of this chakra is signified by how openly and honestly a person expresses himself or herself. A challenge to the throat chakra is for us to express ourselves in the most truthful manner. Falsehoods and half-truths energetically pollute the throat chakra. This behavior violates both our bodies and spirits. Repressing our anger or displeasure by ignoring our feelings through evasive sweet talk, or silence, will manifest into throat imbalances such as strep throat, laryngitis, speech impediments, and so on.
    ~Exploring the Major Chakras

    The throat chakra is associated with the vocal cords and the thyroid gland. It is the chakra of communication, telepathy, and creative expression. Unexpressed emotions tend to constrict this energy center. Your inner truth is your sense of what is correct-your innate tendencies and inclinations. In every situation, we should be humble, open, and receptive, suspending all previous judgments in order to grasp the inner truth of the matter. If we rely on the truth of our inner voice to guide us, our actions will be in accord with the times.
    ~Drumbeat of the Rainbow Fire

    Kyanite Aligns Throat Chakra

    Kyanite is wonderful when used as a shield. It does not retain negative vibes and they bounce off. A good stone for aligning all of the energy centers but is particularly good for the 5th chakra or throat chakra. It is a powerful stone to access the Universal Energy during healing. Blue (color) relates to your spiritual side. It helps you to attune while searching for inner peace.
    ~A to Z Gemstones

    Song Bird

    According to Ted Andrew, author of Animal Speak, the appearance of the bluebird is a reminder to take time to enjoy yourself. He also notes that blue is the color of the throat chakra and creative expression.
    ~Feather Frenzy

    Feeding Your Throat Chakra

    Speaking One’s Truth

    • Liquids in general: water, fruit juices, herbal teas
    • Tart or tangy fruits: lemons, limes, grapefruit, kiwi
    • Other tree growing fruits: apples, pears, plums, peaches, apricots, etc.
    • Spices: salt, lemon grass

    Third Eye Chakra

    Ajna, third eye chakra.

    Sanskrit Name: Ajna
    Location: Brow
    Color: Indigo

    Third Eye Chakra Affirmation

    My third eye intuits inner knowledge

    The third eye chakra is also called “brow chakra.” Our mental calculations and thinking processes are functions of the third eye chakra. We are able to evaluate our past experiences and life patterns and put them into perspective through the wisdom of the third chakra’s actions. Our ability to separate reality from fantasy or delusion is connected to the healthfulness of this chakra. It is through a receptive brow chakra that auric hues and other visual images are intuited clairvoyantly.
    ~Exploring the Major Chakras

    The sixth chakra is classically located at the point between the eyebrows, which yogis refer to as the “third eye point,” and contains intuition. This is where we find our sense of physical vision, and our extrasensory talent of vision as well.
    ~General Overview of the Chakra System

    The sixth chakra is that of the brow, third eye, or place of “shamanic seeing.” Located between and slightly above the eyebrows, it is indigo in color. This energy center is closely associated with imagination, inner vision, and psychic abilities. It is related to the pituitary gland. It functions as a link between the inner world and the outer world. Malfunctions of the brow chakra commonly manifest as headaches and eye tension. Resonating this chakra remedies any problems in function and opens the door to a reality separate from the ordinary world.
    ~Drumbeat of the Rainbow Fire

    Clairvoyance is the gift of second sight. Clairvoyance is a visual form of ESP (extrasensory perception) involving perceiving or intuiting information by way of seeing auras, colors, images, or symbols via third eye sensory.

    Visualize Youself Well

    Visualization for healing is a simple process.

    • Think of or speak your intention out loud.
    • Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the healing process or as you want to be.
    • Watch as your body heals you
    • Feel the healing taking place
    • Know the healing is being accomplished

    Sanskrit Name: Sahasrara
    Location: Top of Head
    Color: White or Violet

    Crown Chakra Affirmation

    My crown chakra projects inspiration

    When functioning optimally, the crown chakra allows inner communications with our spiritual nature to take place. The opening in the crown chakra (located in the same area as the soft spot on a baby’s head) serves as an entryway wherein the Universal Life Force can enter our bodies and be dispersed downward into the lower six chakras housed below it. This chakra is often depicted as a lotus flower with its petals open to represent spiritual awakening. The crown chakra could also be considered the bottomless well from which intuitive knowledge is drawn.
    Exploring the Major Chakras

    The seventh or crown chakra is located at the top of the head. The Hopi call this energy center kopavi, meaning “the open door” through which higher spiritual knowledge is received. The crown chakra is associated with the pineal gland, the color violet, full enlightenment, and union with the cosmos.
    Drumbeat of the Rainbow Fire

    Visualizing the White Light

    Visualize the white light coursing like a liquid through the crown chakra. Visualize white light coursing like a liquid through the third eye. Visualize white light coursing like a liquid through the throat chakra. Visualize white light coursing like a liquid through the heart chakra. Visualize white light coursing like a liquid through the solar plexus chakra. Visualize white light coursing like a liquid through the spleen chakra the sexual centre. Visualize white light coursing like a liquid through the root chakra. Visualize your spiritual chakra centers as being a hollow infrastructure, then as each one fills up with liquid white light. The liquid white light coursing into that chakra and as it does use your awakening perception to inhale breath into that chakra.
    Spiritual Chakra Meditations

    Violet Flame of Transmutation

    The purpose of the violet flame is to free us of negative energies we are holding on to that are born from old karma or past negative influences. Connecting to the violet flame awakens your connection the Christ Consciousness (God Source) and transmutes negative thoughts into positive thoughts. Feelings of guilt turn into acceptance, fear of fate become desired opportunities, etc. The violet flame can be called upon through meditation and incantations.

    Mudra is an ancient Sanskrit term meaning, "gesture." We use mudras in yoga to cultivate a greater sense of awareness to certain energetic fields within the subtle body. In other words, we can use them to help us meditate and open up our chakras .

    And there are literally hundreds of mudras — each with its own unique symbolism and placement of palms and fingertips. Many of us are already accustomed to Anjali Mudra (aka "Namaste"), where the hands are positioned in a prayer in front of the heart. This mudra is used in the beginning of most yoga classes to invoke spirit and intention , or at the end to seal the practice. There’s also the common Gyan Mudra — the placement of index fingertips to thumbs — used in many meditation practices.

    Here are seven lesser-known mudras I’ve chosen to give your seven chakras a little boost. You can also incorporate the mantra and color associated with each chakra to help enhance your meditative experience.

    1. Root (Muladhara)


    Muladhara Mudra

    The Root Chakra is the foundation for the other chakras, with emphasis on survival and grounding.

    • Color: Red
    • Mantra: LAM
    • Element: Earth

    Bring your palms together in a prayer at your heart, then interlace the pinky and ring fingers so they fold inside of the palms. Extend the middle fingers so the tips touch and then interlace the thumbs and index fingers so they form rings around each other, with the fingertips touching.

    Optional: Flip this mudra upside down and lower your arms slightly, so the middle fingers are pointed downward at your pelvic region.











    Article continues below

    2. Sacral (Svadhisthana)


    Shakti Mudra

    This feminine mudra works to harness sexuality and sensuality.

    • Color: Orange
    • Mantra: VAM
    • Element: Water

    With your palms in front of your chest, press your pinky and ring fingertips together. Fold your thumbs into your palms, inside of your index and middle finger. You can then press the knuckles of these two fingers together (pictured) or keep them separate.

    Optional: Lower the hands to just below the navel.

    3. Solar Plexus (Manipura)


    Rudra Mudra

    This mudra brings forth the power of Shiva, the Hindu god of all yogis.

    • Color: Yellow
    • Mantra: RAM
    • Element: Fire

    Place your palms face up on your thighs. Touch the tips of the thumbs, index and ring fingers together, straightening through the pinky and middle fingers.











    Article continues below

    4. Heart (Anahata)


    Padma Mudra

    This lotus-inpired mudra calls forth new possibilities and invites in love.

    • Color: Green
    • Mantra: YAM
    • Element: Air

    With your palms at your heart, touch the outer edges of both pinky fingers and thumbs together. Keep the heels of the palms pressed together as you blossom open through your hands. Extend through the tips of all 10 fingers.

    5. Throat (Vishuddha)


    Granthita Mudra

    You can use this mudra at your throat to help clear the way for expression of your authentic self.

    • Color: Light Blue/Turquoise
    • Mantra: HAM
    • Element: Sound/Music

    Interlace your last three fingers (middle, ring and pinky) together inside of your hands. Interlock the index fingertips and thumbs to form two rings and hold this mudra in front of the base of your throat.











    Article continues below

    6. Third Eye (Ajna)


    Mudra of the Great Head

    To tap into the wisdom and power of your intuition, use this mudra to channel deep into your third eye.

    • Color: Dark Blue/Purple
    • Mantra: AUM
    • Element: Light

    Take your right hand just in front of the space between your eyebrows and curl the ring finger into your palm. Bring the tips of the thumb, middle and index finger to touch and keep the pinky finger extended long. Place the tips of the three fingers that are touching to your third eye focal point. The left hand can remain on top of the left thigh, palm face up or in Gyan mudra.

    7. Crown (Sahasrara)


    Mudra of A Thousand Petals

    Holding this mudra high above your head can open the gateway to universal consciousness, divinity and transcendence.

    • Color: Violet/White
    • Mantra: Silence
    • Element: Divine Consciousness

    Place the tips of your index fingers and thumbs together to touch, forming a pyramid shape. Allow the remaining fingers to extend upward, keeping them straight. Raise this mudra to about 6-7 inches above the crown of your head.

    Perform the mudras in a comfortable seated position for 1-5 minutes each. If you’re only focusing on one mudra at a time, extend the time frame as long as you would for your regular meditation practice. There are no right or wrong ways to do mudras enjoy these as part of your regular yoga routine to cultivate higher awareness.
