I will focus on the seven major chakras, which start from the Root Chakra (which is positioned at the tailbone and genital area of the body) through to the crown chakra (which is positioned at the top of the head).
Here is a brief description of each chakra.
1. The Root Chakra
Represents physical life, reality, work, money, material belongings, physical health, safety, basic primal needs.
2. The Sacral Chakra
Represents emotions, sexuality, creativity
3. The Solar Plexus
Represents our will and personal power.
4. The Heart Chakra
Represents the heart, compassion, relationships, self-love, love, acceptance.
5. The Throat Chakra
Colour: Light Blue
Represents communication, creativity, and self-expression
6. The Third Eye
Represents wisdom, extrasensory perception, truth.
7. The Crown Chakra
Represents spiritual connection, oneness, consciousness.
How To Visualise The Chakras
We need to use our imagination and visualization skills to view the chakras, so we need to get creative with our visualization skills. You may need to practice visualizing your chakras a few times before you can see or sense them (remember though you might not see them clearly – it’s important to manage your expectations).
I like to imagine the chakras as a series of glass balls standing on top of one another in the colors and progressive order of the chakras.
For example; A red ball at the bottom to represent the root chakra, and a violet ball at the top to represent the crown chakra.
You might prefer to use boxes, or something else but they should all be the same shape so that you can compare them.
Here’s the process for checking your chakras:
Step1: Find a comfortable, quiet spot.
Step2: Sit quietly and visualize the glass balls that represent your chakras each standing on top of each other.
Step 3: Start to pay attention to the details of the balls.
What you should look for?
- The size of the balls, are they all equal?
- Are the colors of the balls in the correct order?
- Are there any dark spots on any of the balls?
- How vibrant is the color of the balls? (Are they bright, washed out, murky or even dark?).
- What is the clarity of the balls like? (Are they clear or dirty?).
- What is the edge of the balls like are they smooth or bumpy or broken?
Of course, we are living life, and we probably won’t have such perfect looking chakras, but if we can keep them clean and ...
The distortions in your chakras represent blockages, trauma, pollution, and what area of your life the blockages and imbalances are occurring in.
