Chakra meditation for deep healing and balancing
In order to appreciate the benefits of chakra meditation, we first need to look at the significance of the chakra centers themselves.
What are chakras?
The entirety of the body is a perfect reflection of our beliefs, thoughts and emotions. It is the physical manifestation of our inner beliefs about who we are.
When we initially dreamed this present dream (our lives) we continued on the path of awakening into the truth of who we are, at whatever point in our spiritual workshop we left off in the last dream.
The body and everything we experience here is a pictorial representation of what we believe to be true about ourselves, although generally, most of these beliefs are in the unconscious mind.
The chakra centers are like energetic motors within the mental / emotional / physical energy field we usually identify as “me.” Each chakra center relates to a different area of our lives, as described below.
The health of a chakra is governed by our beliefs about ourselves in the particular area of life that the chakra is related to.
For instance, the root chakra relates to our sense of connection with our fellow human beings, as well as survival issues.
If a person believes they are unsafe and trust is difficult, this chakra will tend to be pulled in and not joined in harmony with the other chakras. This will affect the organs in the area of the root chakra, such as the sex organs.
What do chakras look like?
Often in sharing Well Being Alignment Sessions, my attention is guided to a client’s chakra centers. When this happens, I experience them directly in a feeling / sensing / hearing / seeing way.
Usually if a chakra center is humming along happily my attention isn’t pulled to it specifically. On the other hand, if there is dis-ease in a chakra, it tends to catch my attention.
In chakra meditation, for different people, and at different times, chakras can appear in a variety of ways. Generally, what is highlighted in my awareness are places of constriction, density, cloudiness, numbness, separation or pulling back from the other chakras, and lack of movement.
In some cases there is a quality of folding in, as if the chakra is trying to protect itself.
When I sense a chakra center that is struggling, noticing what area of the body it is in helps me become aware of the underlying beliefs related to the chakra.
The colors of the chakras are the exact same colors and in the same order as the colors of a rainbow, from red at the base to violet / white light at the crown (see below).
Our bodies are walking rainbows! If you hold a crystal up to sunlight it displays beautiful vibrant rainbows that can give you an idea of what a healthy, happy chakra system looks like.
Although there is generally a predominant color associated with each chakra, I often see colors within a chakra that are different than the traditional color associated with it, as well as a variety of textures, feelings, voices, and layers.
Seven main chakra centers
Although there are many other chakra centers within the whole of our spiritual / mental / emotional / physical being, in regards to chakra meditation, we’ll talk about the seven main ones that are the most associated with this present dream, with each one related to a specific aspect of our lives.
There are many different perspectives on what each chakra relates to and many different variations within each individual. The information I offer below is what I perceive in working with clients (and myself).
The Crown Chakra, which is the 7th Chakra, is at the very top of the head. It appears with the color violet and pure white Light. It is linked to our awareness of Oneness with Source, integration of the Whole, living in the now, meaning, devotion, inspiration, and conscious alignment with Pure Awareness.
The Brow Chakra, or Third Eye, which is the 6th Chakra, is in the center of the forehead. It resonates with the color indigo and is linked to inner vision, unity perspective, divine understanding, discernment, wisdom, intuition, and intelligence.
The Throat Chakra is the 5th Chakra, at the base of the throat, and is blue in color. It is linked to expressing and being our truth, taking responsibility for our own needs, surrendering our will to the Divine, trusting Source, decision making, personal authority, and manifesting creative impulses.
The Heart Chakra, which is the 4th Chakra, is in the center of the chest. It displays the colors green and pink. It is linked to love (as a union of spiritual and human love), compassion, confidence, trust, expansion, acceptance, openness and inspiration.
The Solar Plexus, which is the 3rd Chakra, goes from just below the heart down to the navel. Yellow in color, it is linked to our internalized parent, “should,” self-esteem, reaction to criticism, personal power, and ego – our self-concept of an individual, separate self.
The Sacral Chakra, which is the 2nd Chakra, is located just below the navel. Resonating with the color orange, it is linked to our inner child, creativity, innocence, vulnerability and spontaneity.
The Root Chakra, the 1st Chakra, is at the base of the spine and is red in color. It is linked to our connection and loyalty to our “tribe,” family, and fellow human beings, our connection with the manifestation of physical earth, physical groundless, survival instincts, pleasure / pain, and sexuality.
How the chakras relate to our lives
We are conditioned to believe that when we are upset it is because something happened to us that caused the upset. However, this is exactly backwards.
When an upsetting event occurs, such as pain, disease or discomfort in the body, or an “outer” circumstance such as losing a job or a relationship, that occurrence is a reflection of an “upset” that was already within us, usually below our conscious awareness.
For example, let’s say your husband or wife wants a divorce and you feel upset. The event of your partner wanting a divorce is a manifestation of a part of you that is “divorced” from another part of you – a place where you have pulled away from yourself.
However we experience being treated by someone else is a reflection of how we treat ourselves, which is how we believe (usually unconsciously) we SHOULD be treated.
The chakras would reflect the beliefs as well, most likely in the solar plexus and heart in this example, as well as the throat and the first two chakras, to varying degrees. All the organs and cells in the areas of the body related to the chakras would also be affected.
Healing occurs spontaneously when we allow it to in chakra meditation
In the previous example, there would be a corresponding emotion and body sensation tied into the upset regarding the divorce.
In this case, a powerful chakra meditation would be to simply be with this body sensation and give it full permission to be here as it is.
This is a direct way to energetically connect all the way back to the inner beliefs (even if you’re not fully aware of what the beliefs are) that are the ACTUAL cause of the upset, without getting stuck in the recycling of the story about the divorce. You can learn about how to do that here.
By staying with the sensation itself, the emotions and related chakras that are compromised will begin to open and heal on their own, and chakra clearing occurs automatically.
Even after witnessing this many times in Well-being Alignment Sessions, and also in working with myself, I am awestruck every single time I watch the process. These bodies really do know how to heal themselves. We just need to allow them to do it. 🙂
In this type of chakra meditation, by embracing whatever arises in awareness that we call “upset,” the trauma within a chakra is gradually released, allowing it to spin and work in synchronicity with the other chakras as a team.
This facilitates inner harmony and balance as your entire energy field shifts to a more unified whole. Once our energy field is aligned with wellbeing in this way, healing begins organically.
Our innate intelligence knows exactly how to take care of the mind, emotions and body, once we turn toward our inner conflicts rather than away from them.
Chakra meditation: a two-way approach to chakra balancing, healing and clearing
I highly recommend approaching chakra healing from two directions. Let’s start with the most important level first…
1. Chakra meditation focusing on the level of cause
Unless the level of cause is addressed, the effects – feeling upset or distressed in the body, mind, and / or emotions – persist.
So what is the underlying cause of any distress or suffering?
This is like a wave in an ocean looking for water, not realizing it IS water, one with the entire ocean it is appearing in. But if its identity is based on a self-concept of being a separate wave, it will suffer.
This basic identification about what we ARE creates our entire belief system. If we believe we are a separate part, our beliefs will be about being inadequate and incomplete. Accordingly, our beliefs create our thoughts, emotions, and bodies. They also create the entire movie of our experience.
On the other hand, when we begin to directly experience that we are Pure Awareness, One with all that is (the entire ocean, not just a seemingly wave appearing in it), our beliefs, thoughts, emotions, body experience and our lives begin to reflect the peace that we know ourselves to be.
Therefore, for a chakra meditation that will allow the chakras to heal and balance themselves, I recommend any meditation that brings your attention to yourself as Pure Awareness. As we focus on the Light that we already are, we spontaneously release what stands in the way of our experience of love and well-being.
Although in truth there is no outside or inside, there is only Pure Awareness, which doesn’t have a physical location, we can still work with the appearance of an inside / outside.
The following exercises and meditations focus on the “inside” (cause) which causes the “outside” to shift:
2. Chakra meditation focusing on the level of effects
While getting to know ourselves as Pure Awareness, there are also other variations of chakra meditation we can use to ease the effects of identifying with being a separate, isolated part rather than the Whole we are.
The following exercises and meditations work more from the “outside” (effects) to the inside (cause):
Light variations for chakra meditations
In the chakra meditations listed above, for easing the effects of painful beliefs, there are many variations of Light you can incorporate, including the following:
- Diamond White Light – purifies and aligns your energy field.
- Emerald Green Flame – restores and transforms our physical bodies.
- Violet Flame – is a combination of the sapphire blue ray of the Divine Masculine, the rose pink ray of the Divine Feminine, and the gold flame of Christ Consciousness. These three flames unify into a pure violet flame for releasing attachments to painful memories.
- Rose Pink Light – infuses your being with the unconditional Love of Divine Mother and creates a bubble of protection both within and around you. This is wonderful for inner child healing, as well as protection.
- Sunshine Yellow Ray – is associated with Christ Consciousness and arises within our awareness as our masculine and feminine polarities come into balance. This Light ray is infused with Divine Wisdom and Illumination.

What Do The 7 Chakras Represent?
While there are hundreds of different chakras in the body representing energy centers large and small, it’s most productive to focus on the seven core chakras.
These are the major points that have been identified as critical by multiple spiritual traditions. Here they are in ascending order:
1. Root Chakra (Muladhara)
This chakra is found at the base of your spine. It governs your connection to the wider world, your fundamental needs for food, shelter, and stability. Issues with your root chakra can cause a number of emotional and physical disturbances, especially digestive ailments.
2. Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana)
The sacral chakra rests just below the navel. It’s intimately involved in the creative process; it governs both your reproductive organs and your imagination. A balanced sacral chakra is essential for coping with new experiences and exploring the world.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
Your solar plexus chakra sits above your navel, in your stomach. This chakra is fundamental to digestion, but it also has an important mental and spiritual role. You can only embrace the things you experience and understand your place in them when your solar plexus chakra is in balance.
4. Heart Chakra (Anahata)
On a physical level, the heart chakra, which is located at the center of the cardiovascular system, is intimately tied to the organs around it. Imbalances here can be responsible for respiratory problems and high blood pressure. Mentally, an open and balanced heart chakra allows you to form emotional connections with others.
5. Throat Chakra (Visshuddha)
Located in the throat (near the thyroid glands), this chakra governs communication and self-expression. A blockage in the throat chakra can cause feelings of isolation and a range of physical issues, from susceptibility to infection to hormonal imbalances.
6. Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)
The third eye chakra lies just above the junction of your eyebrows. This chakra is in charge of insight and intuition on both a spiritual and a mundane level. Keeping the third eye chakra in balance allows you to see how the world around you is interconnected and makes it easier to understand your place in it.
7. Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
In many ways, the crown chakra, which sits on the top of your head, is the “business end” of the primary chakras. When your chakras are in balance and your energy is healthy, the crown chakra serves as a power connection to the wider world. Maintaining a healthy crown chakra leads to a sense of peace, well-being, and confidence.
How To Identify Blocked Chakras
Chakras can become blocked, closed, or imbalanced. When one of your chakras is closed off to the natural flow of energy through your body, your being will compensate by directing more energy to the more functional chakras.
This results in some chakras shutting down while others become hyperactive. Both pose serious repercussions to your mental and physical balance, and careful meditation is the best way to keep all of your chakras open and bring them into harmony.
How to test your chakras for imbalances
You may be curious about which chakras, if any, you’re having trouble with. To help you with this, there are a number of “chakra tests” available online that will ask you personality test-style questions before arbitrarily judging the effectiveness of your chakras.
If you are curious to find out, make sure to try out the test developed by Mind-valley.
A more effective way to understand chakra blockages is learning in depth about each chakra and look out for its associated signs of imbalanced.
Every chakra has unique symptoms (both physical and mental) that indicate under- or over-activity. Once you begin to recognize these symptoms by yourself you can start associating them to the chakras you’ll want to concentrate on.
- Gold Light – is a deeper resonance of the Sunshine Yellow Ray. It draws true discrimination and peace into your being – an energetic nectar that stabilizes and nurtures your energy field. This is a good Light to bring in after you do energy work, for balancing and completion.
You can experiment with these variations during your chakra meditation practice (as well as any others your intuition offers up) and see which one you resonate with. You may find yourself drawn to different Lights at different times.
Chakra Clearing & Balancing Service
Do you feel like there is bad energy surrounding you? Are you constantly feeling sick or drained? Are you experiencing headaches? Stomachaches? Do you feel connected to people that you want nothing to do with? The answer might be as simple as an open chakra that needs to be cleared or sealed. You never know who or what in your life is connecting to your energy and sucking away all the good out of you. Our chakras are like windows to our innate energy source. Once something lets itself in it is hard to let it out. Lucky for you I know how to control energy and clear and balance your chakras so that you can go on living your life without the effects of bad energy.
Chakra Balancing is extremely important as a person can become sick, make bad decisions, have relationship problems, be angry, depressed or worse just because of some bad vibrations that are not properly aligned.
Physiological issues such as over or under eating, addictions, indecisiveness, lack of motivation for physical activities and exercise can be all related to unbalanced chakras.
I will scan your chakras one by one and determine where your energy is being drained and what I can do to improve it. Then I will begin clearing and fixing the problem areas using meditation techniques.
If you want me to focus all my energy on a specific chakra please let me know exactly what is bothering you so I can address that problem for you. Balancing chakras is a very complex and it is important that you do this at least on a yearly basis to ensure a successful and healthy life.
What to expect after the charka service has been completed? Balanced chakras will improve confidence, health, increased energy, motivates success, communication and speech, sexual energy, sex drive, calmness, happiness, love, feeling of joy and much more!
I will work on the following 7 chakras:
Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, Crown Chakra.
All I need is a picture of you and a detailed description of the problems you are facing. My process takes 21 days during which I will connect myself to your energy by meditating on the information you will provide for me and get to the root of the problem. I will then follow up with an email and/or phone call back with my confirmation and findings upon completion of my energy work.
Depending on what your situation is I may ask you to light candles, light candles on your behalf, do spiritual cleansing, follow rituals to clear and change your energy, program crystals and much more. Every person and situation is different. I will decide on the route to take upon hearing your exact problem. Feel free to contact me with any questions prior to making your purchase.
