Chakra meditation is a great way to open up your chakras and connect with your inner self.

It can be a bit tricky to get started, but once you know how to do it, chakra meditation can be a very rewarding experience.

In this guide, we'll show you how to do chakra meditation, step-by-step.

But first, let's find out more about chakra meditation and its benefits.


What is Chakra Meditation?

Chakra meditation is a type of meditation that involves focusing on your chakras, also known as your energy centers.

There are seven main chakra points in the body, which are located along the spine.

Each chakra has its own unique meaning.

  • Root Chakra. Located in the base of the spine. It governs our connection to the world, representing stability and grounding.
  • Sacral Chakra. Located just below the navel. It governs our sexuality, pleasure, and creativity.
  • Solar Plexus Chakra. Located in the stomach area. It governs our willpower, confidence, and self-esteem.
  • Heart Chakra. Located in the center of the chest. It governs our ability to love and be loved.
  • Throat Chakra. Located in the throat area. It governs our ability to communicate and express ourselves.
  • Third Eye Chakra. Located between the eyebrows. It governs our intuition and wisdom.
  • Crown Chakra. Located at the top of the head. It governs our connection to spirituality, representing our highest potential.

Chakra meditation is done to unblock the chakras and restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit.

It is also done to activate the chakras, which can help you to manifest your goals and desires.


The Benefits of Chakra Meditation

A blocked chakra point may cause you physical, mental, or emotional problems.

Chakra meditation can help to unblock chakras and promote balance in the body.

By doing so, it is believed to improve your health and well-being.

For instance, a blocked throat chakra may cause you to have trouble communicating.

Doing chakra meditation can help to unblock the throat chakra and improve your communication skills.

This type of meditation also helps you unlock your potential and achieve your goals.


How to Do Chakra Meditation

Now that you know what chakra meditation is and the benefits it offers, let's learn how to do it.

Follow the chakra meditation guide below to successfully open and activate your chakras:


Step One: Find a Quiet Place

Finding a quiet place where you can relax is key for chakra meditation. 

It's best to do this type of meditation in a seated position, with your spine straight.

If you can't find a quiet place at home, try going for a walk in nature or finding a peaceful spot in your local park.


Step Two: Close Your Eyes 

Once you're in a comfortable position, close your eyes and relax your body.

Allow your mind to quiet down and focus on your breath.


Step Three: Visualize Each Chakra Point 

Now, begin to visualize each chakra point in the order listed above. 

See each chakra as a brightly colored sphere of light.

Focus on the feeling associated with each chakra point. 

Feel the chakra to determine if it's blocked or unaligned. 

Sometimes, the imbalance would feel obvious as if there's something off. It can manifest as physical pain or emotional issues.

For example, the third eye chakra point may be blocked if you're suffering from a headache.

Allow yourself to feel your chakra as you focus on each energy sphere.


Step Four: Repeat a Chakra Meditation Mantra 

As you focus on each chakra point, repeat a mantra out loud or in your mind.

Here are some examples of chakra meditation mantras:

"I am safe." (Root chakra)

"I am open to new experiences." (Sacral chakra)

"I am confident and empowered." (Solar plexus chakra)

"I am worthy of love." (Heart chakra)

"I am able to express myself freely." (Throat chakra)

"I trust my intuition." (Third eye chakra)

"I am connected to my highest self." (Crown chakra)


Step Five: Open Your Eyes 

When you're finished visualizing each chakra point, open your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

Notice how you feel after doing chakra meditation. 

You should feel more balanced and grounded. 

If you don't feel any different, that's okay too. Just keep practicing and trust that the chakra meditation is working even if you can't see results right away.


Final Thoughts

Chakra meditation is a powerful tool that can help you achieve balance in your body, mind, and spirit.

By visualizing each chakra point and repeating a mantra, you can unblock any chakras that may be blocked.

Chakra meditation is easy to do and only takes a few minutes out of your day. 

So, why not give it a try? You may be surprised at how much better you feel after just one session.
