The Root, Sacral, and Solar Plexus chakras (the first three chakras) are all automatic centers, meaning that they are open in everyone. The remaining chakras are opened in varying degrees according to the individual. The Crown, Brow, Throat, and Heart chakras (the top four chakras) help to adjust the physical body’s brain and the body’s electromagnetic meridian system. Some suggest that you try to open these chakras as far as possible. However, to do so intentionally may leave one too open to spiritual energies, both good and bad, and to feeling overwhelmed by outside influences. To focus on becoming a better person spiritually, mentally and physically may open the chakra energy centers in a more natural and rhythmic way, through meditation, massage, diet, exercise, intimacy, and nearly anything else that is considered therapeutic. Two methods of chakra color meditation are offered for each of the 7 major chakras and their associated colors. The first is a visualization exercise provided for you and the other is to, simply, gaze upon the Color Therapy Gazing Box of your choice to absorb the color you are in need of most. The lower scores from your Aura Energy Self-Test results reveal which of your chakras are in need of balancing and energizing, but don’t fret about knowing which color to choose to meditate on. You will automatically be drawn to it. And, there’s no time limit on gazing. Gaze as long as you like. Perhaps you could combine both meditations and focus on the visualization exercise while gazing at the corresponding color. When you get restless, tired, or bored gazing at a color, stop. Choose another color if you like from the bottom of this page or come back another time.
Red Guided Meditation
The Root Chakra relates to your living in a physical body and is responsible for sending energy to the spine, kidneys, muscles, legs and feet. Sometimes when we do not have a good relationship with our roots, or we do not have secure relationships in the present, it is really difficult to operate in the world. This chakra attaches and grows down into the earth like an invisible cord that helps us to stay grounded and secure. Try to visualize what your root looks like. It is yours. Does it need your help? Does it need to be bigger? Does it need nourishment? What attention does it need to be more firmly planted?
Comfortably sit back in your chair, plant both feet flat on the floor. The first chakra is all about self-preservation and survival. Its element is Earth. Without being grounded to the Earth we live on, it is impossible to feel secure about being here or alive in our skins.
It may help you to focus on the picture of the Red Tree (above) while meditating. Imagine as your feet are planted on the floor, that there are roots that extend from them that push deep into the earth. Now imagine the power of Mother Earth pulsing back up through those roots into your toes, your calves, your thighs and right into your 'seat'. The color of this energy is Red. Allow Red to bathe your lower body in its light as you press your feet into the floor. Visualize your Red roots swirling up and around you. See yourself, becoming one with them, and see them energizing your Root Chakra (tailbone area). Imagine your own personal grounding root as thick, healthy, and solidly attached to you. This root will keep you grounded with proper nourishment. Accept it's healing as you feel your personal radiance become stronger and brighter. You deserve to be here in the world, strong and connected to others and to life. You don't have to be afraid. Accept this too.
When you are ready, return to the world you are so much a part of.
