What is chakra meditation, and how can it benefit your health?

Chakra meditation is an ancient form of meditation dating back thousands of years, focused on achieving and maintaining balance within the body. Your body has seven chakras: root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown. Each chakra, or energy center, is associated with different aspects of your health. Learn how keeping them in balance can improve your overall well-being.

Decreased Stress

As with many types of meditation, chakra meditation can push the worries and stresses of everyday life aside. Focusing on each chakra one by one puts all the excess chatter in your mind into perspective. When all seven chakras are in alignment, you feel more emotionally and spiritually prepared to tackle your day.

Boosted Confidence

When your chakras are blocked or out of alignment, you may feel a sense of anxiety or unease. As you practice chakra meditation, use breathing exercises to recharge those chakras and augment the meditative practice. The solar plexus chakra—above your stomach but below your heart—reigns over your senses of calm, compassion, and confidence.

Positivity in Life

Do you need an attitude adjustment? People who struggle to see the positives in life and connect with the world around them can benefit greatly from chakra meditation. Keeping all seven chakras in alignment helps banish negative thoughts and emotions from the daily internal chatter. If you have tendencies toward depression or anxiety, add chakra meditation to your everyday routine. Mental health is just as important as physical health.

Inner and Outer Peace

Many meditation devotees extol the virtues of the practice, saying it helps them attain inner peace. Chakra meditation, in particular, helps you feel more grounded and at home inside your own head, and that inner peace is noticeable to others. You may find that you’re more patient and emotionally stable after adding chakra meditation to your daily routine.

If you’ve never tried chakra meditation before, you may not be aware of its many health benefits, be they physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. However, keeping all seven of your chakras open and balanced can produce noticeable positive results.
