Use Meditation to Open Your Chakras and Keep Energy Flowing

If you are interested in meditation, then you might also care to learn something about chakras, which can help to enhance your meditation and get more out of each session. You may have seen the word ‘chakra’ being thrown around in a meditation forum or overheard it in a conversation. You may not fully understand what it means, however. If you’ve ever wondered about chakras and how you can use them to improve your meditation, then continue reading this article, as it will provide you with everything you need to know.

So, to start, let’s first delve into what chakras are. They are a little hard to describe in absolute terms, but try to envision a wheel of spinning energy and then multiply that by seven, as there are seven principle chakras in your body. You can find them located along your spine running from the top of your head down to your tailbone.

Your body’s chakras are like its centers of energy.

The chakras located more so in your lower body represent your instinctual side, whereas the chakras in your upper body correspond more to your intelligence. You can tell when your chakras are functioning normally as this will correspond to you being in good emotional, physical, and mental health. Energy flows through your chakras when they are open, allowing you to remain in a state of well-being. Conversely, when a chakra is closed or blocked, an imbalance will occur in your body which can result in emotional, physical, or mental illnesses.

Ideally, you want all seven of your chakras to be open at all times. This is frequently not the case, however. Within most of us, imbalances of some sort exist which can cause one or more of your chakras to be either over or under-active as a way of compensating for the imbalance.

Use meditation to open your chakes and keep energy flowing!

There are several things that can cause a chakra to become unbalanced. Imbalances can be due to emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual causes. Most healers, however, believe that the majority of chakra imbalances occur as a result of spiritual imbalances.

If you feel like something is missing from your life, or if you feel lethargic, moody, apprehensive, depressed, or negative for no apparent reason, then it is very likely that one of your chakras is closed or blocked, which consequently inhibits the flow of life force, aka prana or chi. To return to a happy state of mind, you need to reboot and reopen your chakras so that energy is able to flow freely through them.

It can be very challenging to reopen your chakras once they have been closed. You can do this through regular meditation, or you can work with a trained healer. A trained healer will be able to discern which chakras have been closed and what activity level is going on in each one. Rebalancing techniques include the following: the sound of specifically tuned drums, spoken mantras, colors, or gemstones.

It can be very beneficial to work with a healer because we often are not able to get to the root of our problems on our own. Plus, you sometimes may feel like you have resolved a problem, only to overlook lingering emotional turmoil and damage. Your emotions can actually become stored in your cells, enabling your body to remember how you feel. Therefore, a major chakra overhaul can sometimes be necessary.

When your chakras are balanced, you can just feel it. You’ll develop new understandings of the issues going on in your life, and you’ll feel happier and even lighter. Whether you use meditation or a healer to help balance your chakras, once energy is flowing freely within your body, you will feel so much better.
