This is a very fast technique for opening chakras.
It tends to work best for those that have already done some work with the chakras, but it serves as a good introduction to chakra work as well.
It is useful to note that most people who experience sensations in and around the chakras describe it as a feeling of expansion, space, or energy (hence e.s.e). Some even report feelings of warmth or cold.
Start with whatever feeling is easiest for you...
You can imagine the feeling, or you can let whatever feelings are already present lead you.
Find a place where you can stand or sit erect. Relax (the countdown procedure on the self-hypnosis page can help), and take a few deep breaths. Take a moment or two to connect with your body. Enjoy your body. Love your body. Express your gratitude for the miracle of your body. As with any other drill,
…it helps to have a smile on your face!
CHAKRA 1: Focus on the perineum (sex/earth chakra). Continue to breath deeply, and imagine the breath creating some e.s.e. in the perineum. Relax. Hold your attention on the perineum for a few moments. If you like to visualize, use the color red. If you have taken the time to develop deep breathing skills, you can breath all the way into the pelvic floor, feeling it expand and contract as you inhale and exhale.
CHAKRA 2: Focus on the point two inches below the navel (sacral/water chakra). As you continue to breath deeply, notice e.s.e. in this area. Relax, and keep your awareness here for a few moments. For visualization, use the color orange.
CHAKRA 3: Focus on the point two inches above the navel (solar plexus/fire chakra). Pay attention to the e.s.e. here. Allow yourself to relax even more…. breathe. Let your awareness remain around the solar plexus. For visualization, use the color yellow.
CHAKRA 4: Focus on the point in the center of the chest (heart/wind chakra). Note the e.s.e. as you continue to follow the breath.
Give yourself a few moments to pay loving attention to the region of the heart…
For visualization, use the color green.
CHAKRA 5: Focus on the point on the throat around the adam’s apple (throat chakra – void). Continue the deep breathing, and allow it the expand the area of the throat. Maintain your sense of awareness on the area of the throat for a few moments. For visualization, use the color blue.
CHAKRA 6: Focus on the point in the center of the forehead just above the brow (3rd eye chakra – void). Allow the breathing to open the 3rd eye. Maintain awareness. For visualization, use the color indigo.
CHAKRA 7: Focus on the point on the top center of the skull (crown chakra – void). Allow the breath to open the top of your skull. Pay attention. Smile! For visualization, use the color violet.
Practice this process once a day for a week, and notice how your mind-body shifts. Once you have the process down, it can be done in less than 5 minutes. When you are first beginning, use a minute or longer on each chakra.
Play with this for a while and tell me what you think!
