The practice of meditation aligns the seven major chakras (which correspond to the body’s major endocrine glands) with the power of the environment and the universe. It fairly simple to perform this meditation as long as one remembers to focus on one chakra at a time whilst having a clear mind.
Simply sit still with your spine upright and focus on the particular chakra while taking a deep slow breath. Start with focusing on the root chakra and working your way down slowly to the crown chakra. Make sure you are in a comfortable position without any surrounding distractions. As you focus on each of the chakra’s see beams of light shooting out of you and entering the earth, the idea is to feel a sense of connection with everything around you. Spend about 3-5 minutes per chakra and do not take more than 30 minutes overall.
Although results are not achievable in a short time, 30 minutes of daily meditation will reap many benefits; among them are as follow:
- A more positive outlook in terms of your thought processes and in your perception and understanding of events and behaviours.
