Chakra Balancing Meditation

Last week we looked at the seven chakras within our bodies as focal points of energy…that we use consciously or unconsciously all the time and why chakra balancing is important to dissolve blockages in the body before they become physical illnesses.

Here again are the seven chakra points

FIRST CHAKRA (Base of Spine) – represents our bodies’ relationship with the material world. It grounds us in physical existence. When activated and balanced, its chi energy helps us blend the physical with the spiritual and eliminates all that we do not need for growth. When this chakra is stagnant, we lack self-confidence and fear life, feel like victims and withdraw from physical reality (and thus act selfishly). Physical symptoms can include problems with feet, legs or lower back.LTchakraman

GEMSTONES: associated with the first chakra:

  • Black Tourmaline – a protective stone which is excellent when you feel threatened
  • Hematite – helps you establish protective boundaries when you feel others are intruding in your life
  • Smoky Quartz – the lightest of dark stones and helps blend the energies of the first and seventh chakra
  • Tiger’s Eye – helps your feel secure and increases confidence levels

SECOND CHAKRA (genital area) – directly related to sexually aroused energy flow as expressed in the flow of blood and with the energies of creativity. It is deeply connected to the five physical senses. When it is unblocked, people feel fully alive, energetic, spontaneous, guilt-free ad they also love their bodies. When it is unbalanced, reproductive organ diseases, joint stiffness and various blood disorders could result.

GEMSTONES in line with the second chakra:

  • Carnelian – associated with creativity and decision-making.
  • Ruby or Rubelite – stone of passion – greatly enhances sensory awareness  ltruby
  • Red Jasper – connects you to the auras
  • Red Garnet- encourages patience and calmness of attitude
  • Black Tourmaline – a protective stone which is excellent when you feel threatened
  • Hematite – helps you establish protective boundaries when you feel others are intruding in your life
  • Smoky Quartz – the lightest of dark stones and helps blend the energies of the first and seventh chakra
  • Tiger’s Eye – helps your feel secure and increases confidence levels

THIRD CHAKRA (navel and solar plexus area) – the chakra of personal and material power, with an emphasis on mastery in the physical realm, especially the ability to manifest one’s hopes and dreams. It relates to expressing one’s unique individuality. When it is unblocked you feel supremely self-confident, have a clear sense of purpose and pursue ambitions that others consider impossible. Imbalances manifest as lack of self-confidence, insecurity about money and perhaps aggressive behavior in using one’s power to dominate others. Physical symptoms are stomach type disorders

GEMSTONES in line with the third chakra:

  • Citrine – manifests abundance, has a calming effect especially on anger and stress
  • Golden Calcite – integrates energies related to personal empowerment, such as relationships and business.
  • Quartz adds enhanced energy to dreams
  • Pyrite – encourages the rise of creative ideas which bring abundance
  • Golden Topaz – releases conditions that inhibit personal growth

FOURTH CHAKRA (Heart Area) – relates to metal clarity and clear sightedness of goals. It also opens our minds to loving kindness. When it is unblocked we give love unconditionally and attract people who give us clarity of purpose. When it is blocked, we feel a lack of love and mental stability as keenly as those with a third chakra block feel the lack of material security. Heart conditions are the most common physical symptoms.

GEMSTONES associated with the fourth chakra:

  • Sapphires – eases old, limiting beliefs (especially those based on fear) from the mind so that new ideas can flourish
  • Blue Topaz – relates most directly to spiritual aspects of love – opens the creative elements of the heart and adds emotional depth to one’s being.
  • Lapis Lazuli – calms the mind and relieves mental stress
  • Aquamarine – releases old and hurtful emotional patterns so the heart can be open to receive and give unconditional love.  ltlapis

FIFTH CHAKRA (throat area) – governs communication and speech. When activated, we communicate effectively and with others in both written and verbal form. This includes being able to influence others for the collective good. When it is blocked, communication is difficult or impossible; no one listens to what you say. Physical symptoms can include excessive eating or drinking and a range of respiratory diseases.

GEMSTONES associated with the fifth chakra:

  • Rubies- helps us communicate with deities and divine beings and aids in long distance communication – also dissolves anger.
  • Rose-Quartz – enables our speech to have a calming effect on others.
  • Rubelite – enables us to communicate fearlessly that which we know to be true and also stimulates creativity. It encourages growth of self-confidence and personal expression.

SIXTH CHAKRA (between eyebrows) – some regard this as the place of our “third eye” the physic ltamythest center of our being. When unblocked, it is the source of our inner wisdom and intuitive powers and where we must focus to develop our psychic abilities. This chakra is particularly related to the fear of our imagination, dreams, and “irrational” intuitions. Physical symptoms include migraine, insomnia and anxiety.

GEMSTONES associated with the sixth chakra:

  • Amethyst – known as “nature’s tranquilizer” it helps us sleep peacefully and encourages us to have prophetic dreams.
  • Azurite – helps us focus on negative beliefs and dissolve them
  • Kunzite – dissolves fears both known and unknown
  • Lapis – helps us discover hidden beliefs within us and brings the to the surface
  • Sodalite – brings stability when one is emotionally or mentally confused.

SEVENTH CHAKRA (crown of the head) – directly connects us to the highest self within us. When it is balanced, we connect directly with the universe, dissolve the illusion that we are separate from other humans and forms of life, and we appreciate our uniqueness. WE understand the true nature of reality. When it is blocked, we feel uncomfortable in our own skin, we feel alone and are afraid of death and dying.

GEMSTONES in line with the seventh chakra:

  • Clear Quartz Crystal – there are many forms of this. Crystal clusters help us view what happens in our lives from the soul perspective, and promotes calmness and serenity even when life seems difficult. Crystal points are good for dissolving chakra blockages, enabling us to see clearly.

Now here is the meditation:

CHAKRA BALANCING MEDITATION

Choose one of the gemstones for each chakra – it is a good idea to activate all seven chakras as this balances them. You can then arouse any one individually. Lie down and place each stone on the appropriate location. Inhale deeply, and as you inhale, imagine your breath coming up through the soles of your feet and filling your body as it rises to the top of your head. As you exhale, imagine it traveling back down your body and exiting through the soles of your feet. After you’ve practiced this for a while, you may want to visualize a colour associated with each chakra as the breath travels through the related part of the body.

If you are working on a particular chakra, you may want to create a positive thought associated with it. For example, a heart chakra mental thought could be: “I receive the empowerment of conditional love. My mind is mentally clear and bright.” Meditate on this thought and visualize yourself flooded with blue light that radiates outward from your heart chakra.

Chakra focus should be a relaxing way to meditate. As you continue to practice it, you will find yourself more attuned to your own subtle inner energies. You will become more aware of imbalances before they express them physically.
