Chakra Meditation – How to open Chakra and know more about Chakra Awakening with Chakra meditation subtle body practice.
Just as there are 7 colors in the rainbow spectrum, 7 levels of consciousness, 7 ages of man and 7 notes on the western scale, there are 7 major chakras in the human body. There are five chakras outside the body that assist us in connecting to the universal field. The chakras are energy centers, transformers, and gates that connect the meridian lines and the three auras surrounding the physical and subtle bodies. They are located along the spine and up into the head and can be activated and balanced with the chakra meditation outlined at the end of this article.
The 7 chakras in the human body sense the complete range of frequencies entering a person’s personal energy field. They process and distribute energy entering the auras and meridians transforming the frequencies into different sensations; namely, emotion, thought and physical sensations. This is done in the same way that the eye refracts light. Just as different frequencies of light that enter the brain are interpreted by the brain as different colors, the 7 chakras, by refracting subtle energy, break it down into impressions that radiate an impact on a person.
-In traditional Hatha Yoga, the 7 cleansing bija mantras associated with the chakras are:
- “LAM”- chakra 1 (root)
- “VAM”- chakra 2 (sacral/navel)
- “RAM”- chakra 3 (solar plexus)
- “YAM”- chakra 4 (heart)
- “HAM”- chakra 5 (throat)
- “OM”- chakra 6 (third eye/brow)
- “OM”- chakra 7 (crown)
