Keeping your Chakras aligned is important in your body functioning on an energetic level. When you have one or more out of balance, the other Chakras are working overtime and that is not good. Has your body ever felt tight or cluttered?
You may need to Unblock your Chakra to feel refreshed, Release tension and fatigue,Get back your energy after being "stuck in a rut", Feel more spiritual and "in line" with the world
Balancing Your Chakras Using a colored bath:
Sitting or laying down, inhale 3 times through your nose, release through your mouth. Picture white light (of God or the Uninverse) swirling around you in a counter clock wise motion. See the light start at your feet, going to the top of your head.
Next you will use the 7 colors associated with each Chakra as explained in the 7 areas of Chakras above.
Above your head, picture a purple light swirling around in a counter clockwise motion, then clock wise. If it feels 'stuck' keeping trying...picture the light moving from your head down to your toes and then back up again.
Next colors to use are:
pink or green
At first, you may have trouble seeing the moving light, don't give up. This just means you are out of balance. This meditation should begin to bring in healing colors and light into your spiritual being to help you to cope and deal with different aspects of your life in a more meaningful way.
Remember to eat the foods that feed your Chakras.
Another way to balance your Chakras is by using Binaural Beat CD recordings .The binaural beats will automatically begin affecting your brainwaves by aligning and balancing. All of your seven Chakra points are touched.
Another way to stimulate and refresh your chakras is with sound. During the year long Chakra Balancing course I took from Arlyn Kline, I discovered a relationship between the chakra colors and sound. I created a CD of healing soundscapes. This is not music, per se, but therapeutic sound. More about it here:
