Meditation to Open Your Chakras (quickly and easily)

As you can imagine, this meditation to open your chakras has its roots in Hinduism.

The chakras are a type of energy center theorized in Indian tradition, and whose first written mentions are found in the Vedas, sacred texts several millennia old.

According to my Vedas, the chakras are like flowers made of an infinity of petals, which can open and bloom infinitely. When a chakra is open, this is the state it would be supposed to be in.

Additionally, the chakras vibrate, their petals rubbing together. And the faster this vibration, the higher its frequency, the more the chakras are activated.

What is the principle of chakras (and their opening)?

In Sanskrit (the traditional Indian language), the word chakra literally translates as “wheel”. It is often said that the chakras are rotating flows of energy, and many representations present them to us in circular form.

The very origin of the chakras is difficult to define. It is clear that Buddhism and Hinduism have taught us the most about it, but many other spiritual movements also tell us about it.

One thing to understand about these “energy centers” is their changing nature: through their activity, the frequency, intensity and opening of the chakras are constantly modified.

There are seven chakras, each associated with a state, a vibration, emotions and certain parts of our body. Most often, we work on opening the chakras (as will be the case with this meditation) in order to regulate our emotions. However, this is not the only benefit that open and aligned chakras will offer you.

Throughout life, we are subject to a sometimes aggressive environment, attacks or negative energies. These influences “desynchronize” our chakras… which can lead to a whole host of problems. Working to open these chakras (or at least to ensure their good health) on a daily basis is therefore an essential task.

In Hindu tradition, the seven chakras are aligned along the spine in the order:

  • The 1st chakra, the root chakra: It is located at the base of your spine. The color associated with it is red.
  • The 2nd chakra, the sacral chakra: It is located in the pelvic region. The color associated with it is orange.
  • The 3rd chakra, the solar plexus chakra: It is located in the center of your abdomen. The color associated with it is yellow.
  • The 4th chakra, the heart chakra: It is located in the center of the chest. The color associated with it is green.
  • The 5th chakra, the throat chakra: It is located in the center of the throat. The color associated with it is blue.
  • The 6th chakra, the third eye chakra: It is located in the center of your forehead. The color associated with it is indigo.
  • The 7th chakra, the crown chakra: It is located at the top of your head. The colors associated with it are purple and white.

The effects of this meditation

In reality, it is quite complicated to talk about the effects of a total opening of the chakras, as all aspects of your life will be modified. Furthermore, specific work on each of them will produce very different results.

In any case, given their role as “regulator of energies” in the body, it is important to maintain a good balance between the seven chakras.

Improve your well-being

In Indian tradition, it is said that the vital force (or shakti) moves upwards from the root chakra, to reach the sixth chakra (that of the third eye), because spiritual energy descends there from the seventh chakra (that of the crown).

From this basic idea, many types of meditation have developed, some of which are extremely specific or complex. In its simplest form however, when your consciousness is balanced in all seven areas, in all seven chakras, you are in a natural state of harmony and well-being.

In practical terms, this means that finding ways to align and harmonize your chakras is a natural and effective way to approach wellness.

Reconnect with nature and the world

Many of us feel anxious, out of alignment, exhausted or simply unsure of ourselves in our modern world.

The reasons for this type of feeling can be numerous but, sometimes, the chakra track is the right one. Concretely, closed or poorly energized chakras can affect our physical and emotional state in a much more concrete way than many skeptics think.

So working to open your chakras will help you resolve many of these issues and, more importantly, allow you to realign yourself. Realign yourself with yourself yes, but also with the world.

This is another benefit of aligned chakras: your connection to the world (to nature, to the cosmos or simply to others) will be increased.

Develop your personal energies

We talked about it a few moments ago: the chakras form a path taken by the vital force that the Hindus call “shakti”. If you are not used to this expression, you can see shakti as a kind of chi, spiritual ether.

In any case, this energy moves well through our body and will rely on our chakras as the main pathway. This means that closed chakras will prevent the proper circulation of shakti, that chakras vibrating too low will reduce its intensity... but that open and powerful chakras will increase its effects!

Opening your chakras will increase the intensity of this vital force, which will result in greater energy, greater vitality and more powerful personal energies.

And many other virtues!

If this or that chakra is closed/blocked/misaligned, this can be the source of a whole host of ailments. Without necessarily being the source, this phenomenon should in any case be studied if you regularly experience such ailments:

  • An inability to understand and release emotions
  • Feelings of mental fog, constant fatigue
  • Recurrent muscle tension, especially in the same places
  • Relationship difficulties, especially with loved ones with whom everything was going well before
  • Difficulty manifesting basic survival needs, a kind of apathy
  • A decrease in intelligence, particularly emotional and relational
  • Less sensitivity or, on the contrary, increased to the point of excess

Prepare for meditation to open your chakras

This guided meditation will be based on the process of eliminating blockages through direct attention to each of the chakras. This work will allow you to heal deeply, but could also manifest a certain form of negativity which, leaving your body, appears to you.

Resentment, sorrow or melancholy: if you experience such feelings, simply let them pass and continue the meditation.

Because the chakras are aligned along the spine, this meditation will need to be practiced in certain positions. Personally, I recommend the lotus position, the one where you sit on the floor with your legs crossed. If your flexibility allows it, this position is normally taken with the soles of the feet facing the sky, their backs resting on your thighs. If this position is uncomfortable for you, you can simply sit cross-legged.

If you have a yoga mat, sit on it. Also no, a cushion or a sufficiently firm mattress will do the trick.

That being said, we can now begin.

The different steps

These different stages are actually supposed to follow each other harmoniously, rather than being cut into separate parts.

After all, this guided meditation forms a whole constructed as a single work, a single tool capable of functioning in its uniqueness.

In video and audio, no distinction is made.

The following breakdown therefore has the sole purpose of helping you, a posteriori, to understand the modes of action implemented within the framework of this meditation.

Step #1: placement and counseling for intrusive thoughts

Relax your shoulders, then straighten up.

Now place your hands on your thighs, palms facing up. The position of your fingers is not important.

Close your eyes gently.

As you breathe, your stomach alternately rises and falls. Feel this slow movement. Inhale through your nose, and exhale slowly through your mouth.

Throughout this meditation, we will keep this position. If your mind starts to wander and thoughts come in, simply return to this position, take a few breaths, and continue the exercise.

Step #2: The Root Chakra

So take a deep breath. As you exhale, bring your attention to the base of your spine.

Focus on your perineum. There is the root chakra, the first chakra, the one on which the others rest, and on which the weight of your body currently rests.

Feel this point. Feel a red dot there, like a fundamental energy that supports you, and helps you stand in this position.

The root chakra connects you to the ground, so imagine roots extending from it. These roots connect you to the earth, and nourish you, increasing the red energy of the root chakra.

See these roots, these roots traversed by an energy slowly becoming red, an energy which anchors you in the present, and in the world.

Feel how this energy supports you.

Step #3: The Sacral Chakra

Now let's move on to the second chakra, the sacral chakra.

It is located a little below the navel. So imagine a small ball of orange energy this time.

This chakra is linked to your inner child, to your spontaneity. So observe it, without trying to force it. Feel how it vibrates, and feel it vibrate more and more intensely.

This orange color, this point which activates in waves, as if it were breathing. Feel it.

Step #4: The solar plexus chakra

Now let's go back a little further, and linger at the level of the solar plexus. There also resides a chakra, the one that governs our confidence and our self-esteem.

Above your stomach, where your sides meet, you now visualize a yellow light, a fiery, bright light.

Direct your thoughts towards this area, come into contact with its energy and become aware of its value.

The solar plexus chakra brings us confidence and will, and this yellow light energy carries these ideas well.

From red, to orange, to yellow: three colors for three chakras, three chakras that you have just visited, contemplated.

Step #5: The Heart Chakra

When you feel ready, bring your attention to your chest level, towards your heart.

Center of compassion, love and kindness, the heart chakra is located there.

Breathe slowly, and feel how this chakra breathes with you. With each breath, see it lighten and shine more intensely. It glows an intense green.

Feel it take in size, gently caressing the area around it. The heart chakra heals. He heals and brings life.

As you breathe, you feel it growing, and radiating a kind love.

Step #6: The Throat Chakra

Without you even realizing it, the love of the heart chakra caressed your throat, and awakened another chakra there.

A blue between sky and sea, the energy of the throat chakra helps you develop your creativity and your thinking.

In a pure blue, it shines, and activates in you what is most linked to the arts and beauty.

In peace, serenity, the throat chakra sparkles.

Step #7: The Third Eye Chakra

In the middle of your forehead, right between your two eyes, is the seat of consciousness, wisdom and reason: the third eye.

A deeper midnight blue, it sits there, and you feel its presence.

As if a vibrant energy coming from it animated your head and your spirit.

The energy of the third eye chakra is like a laser: precise and intense.

In calm and joy, let it awaken and vibrate, calming your thoughts.

Step #8: The Crown Chakra

And now, last, but not least, the crown chakra.

This chakra is the highest on your body, as it is located at the top of your head. It is also the highest spiritually, because it deals with the connection to the divine, and to things of the sacred.

Its color is purple, and right there, on the top of your head, you now imagine a light shining there.

As it gains energy, this point emits an increasingly important light, like a halo.

The halo concentrates and forms a ray which goes directly from the crown chakra to reach the sky, joining the cosmos.

Step #9: End of the loop

You probably haven't noticed, but by its alignment, the crown chakra is located directly above the root chakra, the first, that of your perineum. An energy channel even connects them to each other.

Gradually, see the purple light ray transform into red. Slowly its hue changes and as it does so it joins your root chakra.

Step #10: End of meditation and return to calm

Breathe slowly. Calmly. Peacefully.

You now feel well-being, quiet strength and a new balance.

When you are ready, let the image of the chakras disappear from your mind.

Become aware of the environment around you, the room, its sounds.

Open your eyes, stretch and congratulate yourself, because you have just practiced an energy visualization exercise that is complicated, yes, but profoundly good for you.

The history of meditation to open the chakras

Hinduism has developed an entire branch dedicated to health: Ayurveda.

Based on a set of texts called the Vedas (yes, we mentioned them a little earlier), Ayurveda is a body of knowledge aimed at the preservation and cultivation of life. Moreover, in Indian, Ayurveda literally means “knowledge of life”.

In short, this true traditional medicine promotes health through diet, meditation... and a certain action on the chakras. In fact, it is not uncommon for certain exercises to be recommended by Ayurveda practitioners for the simple purpose of activating this or that chakra. Seeking to heal through the right opening of our chakras is in any case inseparable from this form of care.

Historically, the Indian people relied on it for millennia, until the arrival of British colonists in fact, who tried to ban the practice of Ayurveda in favor of their Western medicine. To survive, this ancient science had to be modernized, and the version we know today is undoubtedly somewhat distorted.

The work on energies and chakras, however, has survived the ages and reached us.
