Meditation is an old tradition of patience guided by proper technique once used exclusively by priests and men of religious service to attain spiritual enlightenment. Nowadays, anyone is welcome to use the art in order to strengthen their mind-body connection. Chakra meditation is one of the many forms of meditation that anyone can learn and practice, and the rewards for doing so are many for both the body and the spirit.
Chakra meditation is a process of activating the seven chakras present in the body. These chakras are spiritual centers containing the soul’s energy, which you can open to release the energy when you meditate. It can be performed whether you’re lying or sitting down even without crossing your legs, depending on where you’re most comfortable with.
A benefit of chakra meditation is that it helps the body achieve balance and control over your body’s energy flow. This meditation uses thought and reflection processes focusing on the seven chakras, stimulating them to release energy that will circulate the centers to ensure that they all receive enough power to function optimally.
This leads to the second benefit of this meditation, which is achieving physical and spiritual wellbeing. Poor energy flow in a certain chakra centers can lead to both physical and emotional manifestations, like sluggishness, depression and body pains. Chakra meditation can ensure not only adequate energy flow to your chakras, but also help get rid of spiritual “toxins” that could cause the sluggish flow in the system. Eliminating these blockades will result in renewed vigor and an easy, lighthearted feeling, free from stress and anxiety.
And finally, chakra meditation, as well as other forms of the art, is a good way of helping you adopt a more positive outlook in life! The whole process of meditation, including the breathing techniques, posture and even the right kind of music, is all about making your body feel relaxed. Continuous practice of meditation will eventually help you learn to deal with anxiety better, keep you stress free and make you feel emotionally and spiritually positive. You’ll soon feel like you can face anything!
Chakra meditation is a good way to improve your physical, spiritual and emotional health. It is a practice worth putting some effort into, as you will soon see for a therapeutic art that has no side effects, it sure has plenty of benefits!
