Chakra Meditation Script:
Welcome to this journey through the seven major chakras. This guided chakra meditation will help you to connect with and bring balance to each of these major energy centers within you. Simply open your mind and heart to this process as we dive into the spiritual and energetic body within.
Before we begin our inward journey, find a comfortable seated position. If sitting upright does not feel accessible for you to do, you may also choose to rest on your back.
In either case, let your spine be straight, relaxing your shoulders and letting your hands rest wherever they land naturally.
And, when you are ready, take a moment to close your eyes and turn your attention towards the natural rhythm of your breath.
For a few breath cycles, just let this life force flow through you with complete ease. You do not need to change it in any way. Simply observe the way the body rises and falls with each breath in and each breath out.
Now, before we move into the chakra system, just take three deep cleansing breaths at your own pace.
With each exhalation, allow the breath to leave your body through slightly pursed lips, perhaps letting go with a deep sigh.
After your third breath out, just let the breath come back to its natural depth and pace.
Take a moment to ground yourself now into the earth beneath you, feeling your sitbones or backside rooted into the seat, floor, or other surface you rest on.
Allow yourself to fully arrive, sensing that you are held and supported in this very moment.
Let us begin our journey through the chakras now, beginning with muladhara – or the root chakra.
The root chakra is located at the very base of the spine, so gently draw your attention here now, letting your awareness settle in there.
The root chakra provides us with a sense of being grounded, stable, protected, and centered. It connects us to the wonder of Mother Earth, opening our energetic pathways to her nourishing, vital energy.
As you let your attention rest on this chakra, begin to envision a warm red glow filling this part of you. As this rich, maroon light fills this chakra, it brings balance to the energies that move through this space, providing you with a sense of grounding and stability in your place on earth.
Take a few mindful breaths at your own pace now, envisioning this warm red glow opening you up to the earth’s vital life energy. Let each breath open, nourish, and cleanse this chakra.
You are grounded. You are stable. You are protected.
Now, on your next exhalation, allow your attention to shift slightly upwards, coming to rest on the sacral chakra – the energy center between your hips.
The sacral chakra, or svadhishthana, is connected to our emotions, our creativity, and our sexuality. And, like all other chakras, it can be either lacking energy or in excess of it.
As you let your attention rest on this energy point – the space between your hips – imagine an orange glow arriving to fill your entire pelvis. As it does, it helps to soothe, cleanse, and rebalance your creative, sexual, and emotional energies. It helps you to find openness and balance within the flow of this dynamic, creative, expressive life.
Take a few nourishing breaths on your own timing now, imagining this healing amber glow bringing ease and aliveness to this part of you. If difficult emotions arise now or at any point during this journey, allow your breath to ground you, cultivating compassion and tenderness throughout this journey.
You are creative. You are nourished. You are in your natural and radiant flow.
On your next exhalation, let this loving amber light fade as you shift your awareness to the navel. Here is where the solar plexus rests – the energy center that awakens our confidence, courage, self-esteem, and sense of self-worth.
Let your attention land here, envisioning a warm yellow glow spreading throughout this region of your body. This yellow light the colour of the beaming sun helps to bring balance and vitality to your innate sense of confidence, worthiness, and courage. It helps to soften and release any stagnation or excess energy flow through this area.
Take a few deep belly breaths into this light, imagining the glow bringing you into greater alignment. Each breath awakens you to your innate strength.
You are confident. You are courageous. You are unconditionally worthy.
On your next out-breath, slowly let this warm light fade and your breath resume its natural rhythm as you shift your attention up towards your heart chakra, right in the center of your chest.
The heart chakra, or anahata, is where our capacity for compassion, kindness, forgiveness, and understanding find its strength. The heart helps to connect us to our shared humanity.
So, as you let your attention rest here, imagine an emerald green light radiating through each cell of your heart. This light helps to bring balance to this part of you, opening you to love and compassion while providing you with boundaries that are nourishing and supportive.
Take a few loving breaths through this part of you, imagining this green light cleansing all stagnation or bringing balance to any excess energy that is held here. Feel yourself opening up to yourself and to the world with peace and love.
You are loved. You are loving. You radiate with kindness.
Slowly let your attention soften now. And on your next exhalation, gently guide your awareness to your throat.
The throat chakra is related to our capacity to communicate both courageously and kindly. It helps us to express our truth while also enabling us to hear and receive the truth of others.
As you let your attention rest here, imagine this part of you filling with a soft blue glow. This cleansing light helps to free up any fear or stagnation held in this part of you, while also opening your capacity to listen and your ability to know truth.
Take a few nourishing breaths with your attention held on this space. Let each breath in bring self-trust and freedom… and let each breath out enable you to hear more clearly.
You speak your truth. You listen with curiosity. You communicate with great ease.
On your next out-breath, slowly let your attention soften.
Gently now, let your awareness rise to the space between your two brows – to the seat of your third eye.
When balanced, the third eye (or ajna chakra) provides us with a sense of clarity, imagination, and intuition. It enables us to perceive more subtle aspects of this world, opening us to deeper layers of wisdom.
As your awareness centers in here, begin to imagine an indigo or dark blue glow filling the entire space of your forehead. As it does, it helps to bring balance to your third eye – opening up your channels for intuition while also ensuring that you do not stumble into delusions or disconnection from reality.
Take a few breaths as you mind your third eye, allowing a softening to spread through this part of you. As this chakra radiates within the indigo light, it awakens you to truth, clarity, and wisdom.
You are intuitive. You are aware. You perceive the world with wisdom and clarity.
Slowly let your attention here soften, shifting your awareness gently to the top of your head on your next exhalation.
You come to meet the crown chakra that rests at the top of your head. This chakra connects you to universal truths and the possibility of transcending perceived limitations. Through your crown, you awaken to the truth that you are unconditionally woven into a higher power.
Begin to envision a violet light radiating in your crown. As it does, the thinking mind softens and you awaken to the divinity of who you really are.
Take a few long breaths, letting your attention continue to observe that nourishing violet light. All thoughts drop away as you awaken to the beauty and wonder of this moment.
You are connected. You are divine. Your potential is infinite.
Take one more long, deep breath and then slowly let your awareness descend.
Breathing naturally, come back into your third eye…
Into your throat…
Into your heart…
Through your navel…
Down through your sacral…
Landing back into the root at the base of your spine.
Now, take a moment to let your attention come to the feeling of your body as it is held against the earth. Note each part of you that is connected to the physical world… and then take three long, deep breaths to come back to the simplicity of this reality.
Spend as long as you need just minding the breath and reconnecting with the world beneath you. When you are ready, slowly let your eyes open back up to the world, letting these awakened energies carry you into the day ahead.
