We use a central point of energy whether consciously or unconsciously, to affect the reality that allows us to fully experience and realize events that unfold before us. These focal points are called chakras, nerve-centers of our body. Balancing chakras is very necessary for the healthy living of human body. Chakra meditation is one popular form of meditation technique that can help balance the Chakras.
Chakras are located in important parts of our body, related to spiritual, physical, and emotional energies. The chakras are the link through which our mind, body, and spirit interrelate as a single system. Any organ within the area of these chakras controls the entire body and mind activities. Before we dig into the details of Chakra meditation, let us first understand what Chakra is all about.
Chakra is referred to as wheel or disc in Sanskrit. Its origin can be outlined in early Hinduism and Buddhism, and the shifting nature of chakras is explained in both texts. They are considered as wheel-like energy centers that are not physically visible but belong to the subtle spiritual body and connected to the material one. Therefore, Chakra is not a physical object. They are centers of energy within the body running from the base of our spine up to above the crown of our head. It is the point of sensation in the body.
There are 109 chakras within the human body and have unique characteristics and functions. Out of that 108 are in the physical body and one is in the astral body. Each chakra stimulates a different endocrine gland and nerve plexus and correlates to seven colors of the rainbow spectrum and resembles lotus flowers.
There are seven main chakras situated along the spine from the sacrum at the bottom to the crown at the top of the head.
Chakra plays a significant part in the human body as they are nerve centers. They are supposed to be the holy centers and meeting points of the spiritual energy. Each of the seven chakras relates to a different aspect of the spiritual self. They are situated next to a hormonal gland along the human spinal column. Thus, the balancing of chakras is known as chakra meditation. It consists of a set of relaxation techniques that bring balance, relaxation, and wellbeing to the chakras. It is the best way to balance mind and body for a healthy lifestyle.
Chakra can be blocked and even if one of the seven chakras blocked, it can lead to emotional and physical difficulties. Chakra meditation allows us to understand whether it is balanced or not. This is a focused form of meditation that targets blocked chakras. It helps to restore and enhance the smooth flow of energy. Thus, the main aim of chakra meditation is to bring awareness to a chakra. Light meditation, sound meditation, color meditation, breathing meditation, and perineum pump, and Mula bandha meditation are chakra meditation techniques.
