This is an easy 5 minute chakra meditation that is simple enough for those simply starting meditation but can also help those accustomed to advanced meditation methods. The function of this exercise is to balance/align the 7 significant chakras throughout your body. In addition to stabilizing your chakras a couple of fringe benefits of this fast meditation consist of, but are not restricted to:
- Lowering high blood pressure
- Increasing focus
- Regulating your heart rate
- Calm your nerve system in a difficult scenario
- Increase blood circulation and oxygen levels in throughout your body and mind
- Help ease both physical and psychological discomfort
For anybody brand-new to this, a chakra is merely considered by many to be an energy center within the body. This belief goes back to ancient India and the word chakra stems from the Sanskrit term significance "wheel".
The idea is energy circulations through these 7 significant chakras bringing physical, psychological and spiritual health and wellbeing to those whose chakras are well balanced appropriately. If several of these chakras are not balanced/aligned correctly, your body, mind and spirit will not operate along with it should. This fast meditation can be used throughout your hectic day to bring your energy centers (or chakras) back into positioning enabling you stand out at whatever you do.
With any meditation it is perfect to have a calm, peaceful area to unwind and get comfy. Nevertheless this is not always possible and I have used this meditation at the medical professional's workplace, my child's softball games, in dining establishments with people shouting ... You understand. Let's have some fun!
Initially, take one minute and begin to breathe. Close your eyes and just count each breath. Inhale deep and launch your breath while counting "one". Inhale deep, release and count "2". As you reach 4 draw back at "one". Focus just on counting your breath and carefully eliminate other ideas as they enter your mind. This is a streamlined variation of breath counting and you just need to do this for about 45 seconds to one minute.
You must currently feel your body beginning to unwind as you concentrate on your breath. Now we are going to work our way up your chakras, investing just about 30 seconds on every one. As you concentrate on each individual chakra, envision a spinning colored disk (or wheel) in each particular area.
The very first chakra, the Base or Root Chakra, lies near the base of your tail bone and is represented by the color red. As you breathe picture a red disk, or "wheel", spinning at the base of your tailbone. You need to be getting more unwinded and will wish to invest more time on each chakra, but 30 seconds will work when that is all a hectic schedule permits.
The 2nd chakra, the Sacral Chakra, lies around one inch listed below the navel and is represented by the color orange. This time picture an orange disk spinning an inch listed below your navel but above the very first chakra. Carefully get rid of any ideas aside from this orange disk spinning, breathing deep but mild. Once again, permit 30 seconds before proceeding.
The 3rd chakra, the Solar Plexus Chakra, lies in the area of (you thought it!) your solar plexus, or the area simply listed below your breast bone. The color yellow represents this chakra so picture a yellow spinning disk near the bottom of your chest. While you are doing this briefly picture all 3 spinning together as if on a string.
These very first 3 chakras are connected with and represent our physique and our accessory and positioning with Mother Earth. On the other hand the leading 3 chakras align you with your frame of mind and greater spiritual self. This is why the 4th chakra is considered the most crucial of the 7 chakras by many individuals. The Heart Chakra goes beyond the lower 3 with the leading 3 chakras and keeps the essential balance in between the 2.
As you move into the Heart Chakra feel your body begin to line up and just concentrate on your heart. Breathe deep and concentrate on a green disk spinning near your heart. With this chakra don't hesitate to take a couple of additional minutes and accept the shift from your physical have to your spiritual desires. Lots of people have a tough time with this shift, but with practice it becomes simpler.
Vacating your Heart Chakra, accept the change from your physical enjoying your spiritual self. The next chakra lies in your throat and is represented by the color blue. As you breathe deep envision a blue disk spinning in your throat representing your Throat Chakra. Accept the peacefulness as you prepare to relocate to the 6th chakra.
Take a relaxing breath and go up to your Third Eye Chakra situated in the middle of your forehead. As you breathe, picture an indigo colored disk spinning in the area simply above your eyes. Just concentrate on your spinning chakra and picture it being opened and enabling the energy to stream through.
Now transfer to the top of your head, or your Crown Chakra, and envision a brilliant violet disk spinning. As you breathe and envision this spinning disk feel the chakra open and the energy circulation through your body. At this moment you must have the sensation of increased energy along with a relaxing existence surrounding your body.
As you take these last breaths feel the energy circulation up through your chakras and out your Crown Chakra. Welcome the sensation, not simply in your body, but all around you.
This 5 minute meditation can be done practically anywhere or whenever to assist increase energy while relaxing your mind and nerves.
