CHAKRAS CLEANSING;EMPOWERMENT AND AWAKENING

CHAKRA CLEANSING

Why is it important to cleanse the chakras?

The chakras are the 7 major energy centres. All the energy, whether positive or negative are absorbed into the chakras, this is why it is important to cleanse them. After a while, your chakras will not be able to work to their maximum because they are overloaded with the negative energy that hasnt been released from the body. This can often result in sickness in the location of the particular chakra that has got too much negative energy, blocked or be damaged from emotional, mental or physical inteference within the body.
So how do I cleanse them?

Step 1: Introduction
Find a quiet place to be comfortable in, sit, lay...be in whatever position makes you comfortable and begin to meditate, relaxing your body as you do.
Step 2: Cleansing your Root Chakra

First begin visualising a red light at the base of your spine, this is where the root chakra is located. Slowly begin to concentrate on this light. Feel the warmth from the light radiating around your chakra and visualise the globe of red to start pulsing gently.
As you see the globe to start pulsing, visualise the red light begin to expand, grow stronger and brighter.
At this time, if you feel any negativity surrounding this chakra, or perhaps see any darkness around it, release it, Just let it go. Now with the emptiness left from the darkness, expand that hole with the healthy glow of the chakras light.
Step 3: Cleansing your Sacral Chakra

Firstly, before you start visualising an orange light, you must first remember that the sacral chakra has two openings, and is located at the pelvis, so when you visualise the light, remember to see them for both, the front and rear of your pelvic region.
Repeat what you did with the first chakra, feeling the warmth and the steady brightening of the chakras, but do not forget to envision two globes of light instead of one. If there is any darkness or negativity that you may see or sense clouding this chakra, release it.
With the remaining hole, fill it with the orange light of the chakras.
Step 4: Cleansing your Solar Plexus Chakra

Now we move up to the next chakra, the solar plexus. If you arent sure where this is, it is located at the stomach, just below the diaphragm. Like the sacral this too has two openings, one front, one rear.
Visualise a yellow glow coming from the back and front areas of your solar plexus. Slowly begin to see the light expand and pulse brighter. Do not forget to feel the warmth around this area, as this is an indication that your chakra is responding to your cleansing.
Once again, any darkness or negativity that you may see or sense must be released for the chakra to be cleansed. Do this and fill the remaining hole with the yellow light.
Step 5: Cleansing your Heart Chakra

Like the two before this, this chakra has two openings at the front and rear of the body.
Start by visualising a green glow from your chest, see it grow brighter till it is strong and green in colour. Feel the warmth radiate in your chest.
Any darkness or negativity must again be released from the chakra, and fill the remaining hole with the green light. Your chakra is now cleansed.
Step 6: Cleansing your Throat Chakra

This chakra too as two openings. Begin with visualising a blue light,getting steadily brighter as you concentrate on it. The colour should be a light blue than a deep blue. It is important to get this colour right, as the third eye colour can be highly similar in many instances.
Now, feel the warmth of the charged chakras in the front and back of your throat.
Following what you have done with the other chakras, you must release any negative energy or darkness that has surrounded the chakra. Then in the space, expand the blue light to complete the globe.
Step 7: Cleansing your Third Eye Chakra

The third eye also has two openings. This chakra is associated with a light purple colour and is located between your eyebrows. Concentrate on that area and feel the warmth of your chakras responding to you.
Now visualise a light purple globe begin to expand from between your eyebrows at the front and back of your forehead. See it steadily brighten and pulse with your energy.
If there is any darkness or negativity around the chakra, release it. With the space left, allow the purple light to fill the chakra and become whole.
Step 8: Cleansing your Crown Chakra

Start by feeling the warmth in and around your head. Unlike most of the others, this chakra only has one opening. It is associated with the colour of white.
Visualise a globe of pure white and begin to see it glow bright and healthy.
Now once again, if there are any spots of darkness or negativity that surround or cloud this chakra, release this energy so that the holes can be filled with the white light and the chakra is cleansed.
I have cleansed them, so now what?

Well now you are done, you have cleansed your chakras. It is best to keep this a regular exercise, as it helps with how much energy and power you can exert.
Chakra Empowerment**


The closer you are to the source of the earth (ie. being outside) the easier it is to empower your chakras.
If you are further away from the source, extra energy is taken from your body for visualisation and the gathering of energy.
Beginner - Laying Down

Lay down in a comfortable position Start your breathing exercise until it is calm and rhythmic From the top of your head, go down your body, visualising each chakra and their colours
Crown - White Third Eye - Light Purple Throat - Blue Heart - Green Solar Plexus - Yellow Sacral - Orange Root - Red
As you do this, see a white beam of light extending from each of the chakras into the earth (7 beams of light for 7 chakras) Feel the beams radiate with a gentle warmth Starting at your crown, visualise a pulse of energy going up into your chakra from the earth Do this for each chakra, with each beam of light energy changing to the colour association**
**From the top of your head;
First Beam = White Second Beam = Light Purple Third Beam = Blue Fourth Beam = Green Fifth Beam = Yellow Sixth Beam = Orange Seventh Beam = Red

As the light energy reaches the chakra, see the sphere of your chakra grow brighter and expand This is a constant energy flow from the earth. Once it empowers your crown, move onto the next chakra To end the meditation, visualise the point where the beams of light extend into the earth, and retract each of the beams into each of your chakras

Focus & Concentration
Many people have trouble with focus and concentration, this is a technique which can be much like the void, simple but difficult to master
For this technique we will start out by using a prop...a candle
You can use something that will keep your attention without allowing yourself to waver too much
The reason for the candle is because it is easier to focus as it is continually moving
Find a place where you will not be disturbed and light a candle Sit in a position that you will be comfortable for a long period of time Relax your breathing, just in and out...slowly but not uncomfortably Focus on the flame of the candle, just watch it flicker and move, still breathing rhythmically Do not let your focus waver from the flame, any thoughts that come into your head, just push them out and continue to focus and concentrate on the flame Continue this for as long as you wish then end the meditation
This will assist in focus and concentration, it may be difficult to begin with, but like all things it takes time, so do not feel dispondent if you have trouble focussing and concentrating

Chakra Awakening
With these meditations they must be done everyday for one week. They can all be done each day, or you can do each chakra weekly.
"You are not meant to do the Root Chakra first, this is because the body is like the construction of the world. The deeper you go, the stronger the power. The more powerful, the more dangerous. Your body is not used to it and is not ready for such power to be unleashed until you are skilled at awakening the other 6 chakras."

What you should sense when awakening chakras
Tingling Pulsing of your body in the area of the chakra you are working on Heat Pressure on the area of your body that the chakra is located Visualisation/Seeing the chakra itself
You may not have all these experiences when you do the awakening, but you should experience one of these or something similar. These are the typical responses your body makes to your chakras being awake.
