How To Open The Chakras With Meditation

The chakras are the energy centers in your body through which energy flows. When one or more of your chakras become blocked, it causes an imbalance and a lack of free flow in your system, which can lead to physical, emotional, and spiritual health problems.

The Vedas and Hindu traditions were the first to describe chakras. People have benefited from chakra-balancing activities since then and throughout history. Your chakras, on the other hand, are not like your organs. They aren't stable and visible objects that doctors may inspect and touch. So, do they have scientific backing? Chakras have yet to be scientifically validated, but the energy that exists within you has. However, in quantum physics, the idea that "everything is energy" is a scientifically established reality that is universally recognized. The chakra theory and chakra balancing practices are based on the concept of ever-flowing energy.

In the mid-1990s, Konstantin Korotkov of the St. Petersburg Federal University of Informational Technologies used the concept of Chinese meridians to create the GDV, a scientific device that measures bio-energy in the body and notes energy centers that correlate with well-being and various body functions. Numerous studies have also been conducted on how disciplines like yoga, meditation, reiki, gratitude, and the use of crystals can open up your chakras and help your physical and mental health. Whether you believe in chakras wholeheartedly, are skeptical, or fall somewhere in the middle, routines that open up your chakras can help your health and well-being.

How To Open The Chakras With Meditation

Understand that there is no need to strive to make over-active chakras less active if you are opening your chakras. They're only compensating for the blocked chakras' inactivity. The energy evens out and becomes balanced once all of the chakras have been opened.

Before getting started with the meditation check the below image to understand better the position of you hands and fingers during the meditation:

1. Activate the Root Chakra (red). This chakra is dependent on physical awareness and feeling at ease in a variety of situations. You should feel well-balanced and intelligent, stable and secure if you open it. You don't have a healthy distrust of the people in your life for no cause. You're quite aware of what's going on right now and feel really connected to your physical body. If it's underactive, you're more likely to be afraid or apprehensive, and you're more likely to feel undesired. If it's overactive, you can be a materialist and greedy person. You have the impression that you should be safe and that change is unpleasant.

  • Make use of your body and become more aware of it. Do yoga, go on a walk around the block, or clean the house by hand. These exercises help you get to know your body and enhance the chakra.
  • Keep your feet on the ground. This implies you should feel the ground beneath your feet and connect with it. To do so, stand tall and relaxed, with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Move your pelvis forward a little and keep your body balanced so that your weight is evenly distributed across your feet's soles. Then lean forward with your weight. Hold this position for a few minutes.
  • After you've grounded yourself, sit cross-legged.
  • At the point where the genitals meet the anus, focus on the Root Chakra and what it represents.
  • Chant the sound "LAM" quietly but clearly.
  • Allow yourself to relax at this time while thinking about the chakra, its meaning, and how it affects or should effect your life.
  • Continue repeating this until you feel entirely at ease. You might have a "clean" sensation.
  • Consider a crimson blossom that has closed. Imagine a great energy flowing from it: it slowly opens, revealing four red petals brimming with vitality.
  • Holding your breath and contracting the perineum.

2. Activate the Sacral Chakra (Orange). Feelings and sexuality are dealt with by this chakra. Feelings are released with freedom and conveyed without being overly emotional if you are open. You're open to affinities and can be both enthusiastic and outgoing. You don't have any issues with sexuality, either. If it's underactive, you're impassive or unemotional, and you're not particularly open to anyone. If it's hyperactive, you're constantly sensitive and emotional. You could also be an extremely sexual person.

  • Sit with your back erect but relaxed on your knees.
  • Place your hands, palms up, on top of each other in your lap. The palm of the left hand touches the back fingers of the right hand, and the thumbs lightly touch.
  • At the sacrum bone, focus on the Sacral Chakra and what it represents (lower back).
  • Chant the sound "VAM" quietly but clearly.
  • Allow yourself to relax at this time while thinking about the chakra, its meaning, and how it affects or should effect your life.
  • Continue repeating this until you feel entirely at ease. You may have a "clean" feeling once more.

3. Activate the Solar Plexus Chakra (yellow). This chakra encircles self-assurance, especially in a group setting. When you're open, you should feel in command and have a strong sense of self-worth. If it's inactive, you're likely to be indecisive and passive. You may be fearful on a regular basis, and this does not benefit you. If it's overactive, you'll be arrogant and aggressive.

  • Sit with your back erect but relaxed on your knees.
  • Place your hands slightly below your solar plexus in front of your tummy. Allow the fingers to come together at the tops, pointing away from you. Straighten the fingers and cross the thumbs (this is important).
  • Concentrate on the Navel Chakra and what it represents, which is located at the base of the spine, just above the navel.
  • Chant the sound "RAM" quietly but clearly.
  • Allow yourself to relax even more during this time, thinking about the chakra, its meaning, and how it affects or should effect your life.
  • Continue repeating this until you feel entirely at ease. You should have a feeling of "cleanliness" (for every chakra).

4. Activate The Heart Chakra (green). Love, kindness, and affection are all aspects of this chakra. When you're open, you come across as empathetic and kind, and you always seem to be in good spirits. If it's underactive, you're likely to be frigid and unapproachable. If it's overactive, you have a tendency to be so "kind" to others that you suffocate them, and you may be perceived as selfish as a result.

  • Sit in a cross-legged position.
  • Allow the tips of your index and middle fingers to contact on both hands.
  • Place your left hand on your left knee and your right hand in front of your breastbone's bottom half.
  • Concentrate on the Heart Chakra and what it represents at the base of the spine, near the heart.
  • Chant the sound "YAM" quietly but clearly.
  • Continue to relax your body and ponder about the chakra, its meaning, and how it affects or should effect your life at this time.
  • Continue doing this until you are completely calm and the "clean" feeling in your body returns and/or strengthens.

5. Activate The Throat Chakra (light blue). Self-expression and communication are the foundations of this chakra. When the chakra is open, it is easy to express oneself, and art appears to be a terrific way to do it. If it's underactive, you're considered shy because you don't speak much. This chakra might become blocked if you lie a lot. If it's too active: you tend to talk a lot, which irritates a lot of people. You can also be a terrible listener.

  • Take a seat on your knees.
  • Without using your thumbs, cross your fingers on the inside of your hands. Allow the tops of the thumbs to touch and draw them up a little.
  • At the base of the throat, focus on the Throat Chakra and what it represents.
  • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound "HAM."
  • Continue to relax your body while thinking about the chakra, its meaning, and how it affects (or should effect) your life.
  • Continue doing this for about five minutes, and the "clean" sensation will return.

6. Activate the Third Eye Chakra (Indigo). This chakra deals with insight, as its name suggests. When you're open, you have exceptional clairvoyance and a proclivity for daydreaming. If it's underactive, you're more likely to rely on others to think for you. When you rely on your beliefs too much, you'll find yourself confused most of the time. If it's overactive, you'll spend your days immersed in your imagination. You may experience frequent daydreams or even hallucinations at the extremes.

  • Sit in a cross-legged position.
  • Place your hands in front of your lower breasts. Straighten your middle fingers and touch the tops of your hands, pointing away from you. The two top phalanges are touched by the other fingers, which are bent. The thumbs are pointing in your direction and connect at the tops.
  • A bit above the center of the two brows, focus on the Third Eye Chakra and what it represents.
  • Chant the sound "OM" or "AUM" quietly but clearly.
  • During this time, let your body to relax naturally while thinking about the chakra, its meaning, and how it affects or should effect your life.
  • Continue doing this until the same "clean" feeling returns or becomes stronger.

7. Activate the Crown Chakra (purple). This is the seventh chakra, and it is the most spiritual. It encircles the intelligence of a being and its unity with the universe. When this chakra is open, judgment is removed from your to-do list, and you appear to be more aware of the world and its relationship to yourself. If it's underactive, you're not particularly spiritual and your thoughts may be extremely stiff. If it's overactive, you'll find yourself constantly thinking about things. Spirituality appears to take precedence in your mind, and if you're really hyperactive, you may even disregard your physical demands (food, water, shelter). 

  • Sit in a cross-legged position.
  • Placing your hand on your stomach is a good idea. Allow the tiny fingers to point up and away from you, touching at the tips, then cross the remaining fingers with the left thumb under the right.
  • At the very top of your head, focus on the Crown Chakra and what it represents.
  • Chant the sound "NG" quietly but clearly.
  • Your body should be completely relaxed at this point, and your mind should be at ease. Do not, however, lose sight of the Crown Chakra.
  • This is the longest meditation, and it should last at least ten minutes.

Grudges, wrath, regret, grief, and the inability to let go of previous injuries can generate a lot of blockages in your ever-flowing energy, particularly in your heart chakra. Forgive. Allow yourself to relax. Journaling, rituals, a good cry, movement, time in nature, meditation, and yoga can all aid in the forgiveness process.
