Opening Chakras

Posted on

Take the Chakra Test; Take this short test to see just how open your chakras are.
The questionnaire consists of 56 questions, to which you can answer “not at all” through “definitely.” Try to be as honest as possible about yourself, as this will get you the most accurate results.

Next to a list indicating whether each chakra is under-active, open or over-active, the test results consist of a graph displaying the activity of each chakra.

The 7 Chakras

Opening the Chakras

Chakra meditations that use mudras and sounds to open chakras

These chakra meditations use mudras, which are special hand positions, to open chakras. The mudras have the power to send more energy to particular chakras.
To enhance the effect, sounds are chanted. These sounds are from Sanskrit letters. When chanted, they cause a resonation in your body that you can feel at the chakra they are meant for.

For pronunciation, keep in mind that:
the “A” is pronounced as in “ah,”
the “M” is pronounced as “mng.”

Do a meditation for 7 – 10 breaths. Chant the sound several times each breath (for example three times).

Check out these recommendations on working with your chakras.

. Open the Root Chakra

Let the tips of your thumb and index finger touch.
Concentrate on the Root chakra at the spot in between the genitals and the anus.
