Learning how to do chakra meditation is easy and everyone can do it. All you need is a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed for at about 15 minutes and a little bit of imagination and you’re off.
Visualize that there are seven major chakras found in your body. These chakras are considered to be a very important part of your body that needs to be balanced in order to promote good health. The seven chakras are Shasrara (crown), Ajna (between brows), Vishudda (throat), Anahata (heart), Manipura (navel), Svadisthana (sacral), and Muladhara (root). You have to know how to open up your seven chakras in order to promote spiritual balance and good physical health.
Using your mala you will work your way through each chakra. Begin the meditation on the first bead by setting an intention for your meditation. This can be as simple as focusing on an emotion that you would like to cultivate, or an emotion that you would like to release. Now simply breathe deeply and evenly as you imagine a spinning light associated with each chakra. Start from Muladhara, or root chakra, and work your way up to Shasrara, crown chakra. Imagine the colored light associated with each chakra and focus on the light as you breath deeply. Relax into your breath and feel the light radiating from within yourself shining and growing with each breath. With each breath move from one bead to the next.
Count 15 breaths moving through 15 beads for each chakra. After several minutes travel upwards towards your crown chakra and repeat the process; breathing deeply and focusing on the light. When thoughts and feeling arise acknowledge them without judgement and gently release them coming back to focus on your breath.

Move to the last bead and sit quietly for several breaths and simply notice how you are feeling in your body. Do you feel relaxed and grounded? Perhaps you feel a heightened sense of peace and calm. Go into noticing what you are feeling without judgement. Know that you can come back to this space, that it is available for you any time you need or desire to slow and take a moment.
