Deepening Your Personal Yoga Practice – Chakra Meditation

By Camille Pierson

We often focus on the physical asana practice of yoga in the west, but there is so much more to yoga. Through practicing Yoga we learn to observe ourselves and our minds to work towards having control over our thoughts and bodily functions, leading to optimal health and liberation. We often miss the deep emotional and spiritual healing side of yoga. Here is a chakra balancing mediation you can do any time; when your energy feels low, when you are trying to process some difficult emotions, or when you just want some time for yourself and create that internal focus. This mediation will help you to develop your connection with your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.

Chakra Balancing Meditation

  • Sit in a comfortable mediation position. Relax your legs, arms, hips, neck and shoulders. Place your hands on your lap or legs. Lift up through the spine. Let your mind relax and bring your attention to the breath.
  • Imagine a white light coming from the sky and pouring down into your crown chakra at the top of the head. Imagine this white light is universal healing energy. Allow this white light to travel down through your body, through your arms, spine, legs, and out through the base chakra, around the hips, and into the Earth. Imagine this white light travelling down through the Earth, reaching the Earth’s centre. This white light flows through your physical and energetical bodies and cleanses and heals what you no longer need. Releasing all negativity back into the ground, to be recycled.
  • Imagine this white light flowing through for a few minutes.
  • Bring your awareness to your base chakra, imagine a red flower opening at your base chakra. Imagine a red light emanating out of this flower.

  • Thank the white healing light and allow it to go back up into the sky. Be aware of how you feel. Be aware of your chakras feeling more balanced and energized. Take a moment to observe your mediation. Then start to wiggle your fingers and toes, and gently open your eyes.
  • This can be practiced once a day, once a week, or just when you feel your energy is down and you need a little boost.
