As our lives become busy the tension in our bodies is expressed – shoulders tighten, headaches become more frequent and our bodies just feel imbalanced. Bringing ourselves back to a stable well-being can be accomplished best through the practice of Chakra Meditation. This fascinating form of introspection encompasses the idea that our body has ‘focal points’ that we can put emphasis on during our meditation to bring balance and center back to our lives.
Chakras are translated from the Sanskrit language to mean ‘Wheel’. This wheel contains seven main areas to concentrate on, to spin the wheel in a healthy and stable life – Root, Sacral, Navel, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown. These Chakras are an umbrella for many various parts of our mental and physical health. They contain colors, elements and healing techniques to achieve wellness. When one of our Chakras becomes “closed” our flow is off, tension and imbalance increase and we become both mentally and physically ill. Another chakra can take over (or sometimes under) compensating for the ‘broken’ part of the wheel. This creates all kinds of tumult for our bodies.
The basis for Chakra Meditation is to learn the art of opening our Chakras and resuming good flow to all parts of the physical and emotional – restoring equilibrium throughout.
Chakras are all connected to points on our body. Getting ourselves back in unison means a form of meditation that incorporates visualization, verbal chants and also often includes aromatherapy with incense. Deep concentration and introspection are also necessary to discover where the emotional feelings are taxing the body and how to heal them both.
One of the more difficult forms of meditation, Chakra Meditation can be mastered well with the study of the Chakra chart above, the representation of the color and element for that Chakra, as well as its purpose and location on the body. Review of the vocal chants required for each Chakra is also a key component. Chakra Mediation teaches the process of putting our Whole Selves back together again.
