*MEDITATION: Chakra Meditations
By:Louis Doughty

Hello today I want to show you a chakra meditation.

We will begin by just finding a comfortable place to sit. OK, take a few deep breaths, allow the shoulders to drop, allow the jaw to drop, allow yourself to be comfortable sitting upright. Try to make sure you will not be disturbed by anything by preparing for your chakra meditations beforehand.

We will first begin by visualising the chakras. Each chakra is associated with a particular colour and it symbolises wholeness of the mind body and spirit. There are 7 major chakra centres in the body. These are the ones we will be focusing on today in our chakra meditation.

So we will begin with the pelvic chakra the root chakra which is red and we are just going to breath and visualise red energy all around the bottom of our spine and our pelvis.

The red chakra which is the base chakra is to do with our physical survival, our vitality, stability, patience, courage and material success. It gives us life force and is our connection to the earth.

So you might want to visualise this base chakra like a red flower opening and filling this area with love so flood the area with red using your awareness and visualisation while breathing calmly.

Now gently move to the next chakra which is orange and is just underneath the navel. So visualise while you breathe in and out flooding this area with the colour orange, like a beautiful orange clouds surrounding the area. This area is to do with our creativity, our sexuality, our passion, it gives us physical force, vitality and strength.

So just keep breathing and flooding this area with the beautiful vibrant orange colour and again you could visualise this chakra as an orange flower opening itself and filling the area with orange cloud.

Now bring you awareness to the next chakra which is the solar plexus. Which is located just below the rib cage and we are going to flood this area with beautiful yellow light. This is to do with our sense of identity, our personality, this area promotes confidence and personal power, spontaneous action and when it's functioning this is where we have our warmth and where we radiate our inner glow.

So once again you could visualise this area like a flower opening itself and just see yourself being bathed by the suns energy and allow it to enter this area of your body... so just keep breathing and imagine filling this area with vibrant yellow energy like the sun.

Then gently take your awareness away from the solar plexus and toward the area of the heart. This chakra is green so we are going to visualise green energy pouring form the centre of our chest. This is our emotional centre where we feel love, compassion, understanding and where we bring forgiveness. The heart chakra is our central chakra of the body it gives us love and is a powerful healer.

Loving ourselves is the foundation of good health and happiness. So really sit and be aware of your heart area and feel the green energy coming through, again you can visualise a green lotus flower opening itself up in your heart to really bring in the energy...

Now we move up the throat area which is blue. So we just keep breathing and visualising blue coming into the throat area and visualise it going all the way round the neck. This chakra is to do with communication, self-expression and sounds.

So it's this chakra that builds a bridge between us and the world around it. If you ever get throat problems usually it's to do with communication or not communicating enough or communicating too much. So we just sit now and feel this lovely blue energy. You can see it as a blue flower opening itself and spreading the energy around the area.

Now we take our awareness up to the brow. This chakra is located just between the eyebrows and it promotes vision, intuition and is our centre for psychic abilities, concentration and insight. Its colour is indigo, so we are breathing in the colour indigo. You may want to take your inner site up to this area just by letting your eyes roll up and focus your awareness on this area. Keep breathing gently whilst imagining spreading the energy all around this area

Now move up to the crown chakra at the top of the head. This vitalises our upper brain and promotes positive thought pattern inspiration, and imagination.

It's in charge of our spiritual well-being; it makes the connection to the higher self and the cosmic forces and constantly channels life energy into our system and aligns and balances all of our chakras. So just visualise the top of the head and this beautiful purple colour emanating from it, just allow the top of the head to be bathed in the beautiful purple cloud.

So we have been through the seven different chakras and energised using their colours. Each day you can do this and your life will unfold like a beautiful lotus flower...

Let's finish by visualising ourselves in a golden bubble of light. This loving energy will hold in all the good work we've done today and will protect you.

Remember when ever we come into contact with others we touch them with our energy so make sure your energy is your loving light...

and as we end just gently become aware of your body, you can wriggle your fingers and toes and have a nice gentle stretch just come fully back into your body before facing the rest of the day thank you.... may peace be upon you and everything and everyone you come into contact with today... Namaste
