Meditation is nothing but withdrawing all the barriers; thoughts, emotions, sentiments,
everything that builds a wall between you and existence. The moment they drop, you
suddenly find yourself in tune with the whole; not only in tune, you really find you are the
whole. Osho
Remember you dont meditate to get anything, but to get rid of things. We do it, not with
desire, but with letting go. If you want anything, you wont find it. You wont be able to find it.
But when your heart is ready, peace will come looking for you. Arjahn Chah
The seven chakras are an enigma to many people, but the more conscious we become of
how energy moves through our body, the more we discover that which is healthy, superior,
infinite, and unconditional within us. The more we meditate on this type of energy, the more
we allow our personal frequency to resonate with the greater orchestra of the cosmos. And
the more we allow our frequency to resonate, the more balance and health we will
experience in our lives.
Opening the Earth Chakra:
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to ones courage. Anais Nin
This chakra, also known as the root chakra, deals with survival and is blocked by fear. In
order to open this chakra we must be able to let go of fear so that it can go through the
alchemical transformation into courage. The earth chakra doesnt just ground us physically it
also grounds us temporally by keeping us in the present moment. Those with open earth
chakras tend to be healthier and more balanced than others. They tend to be less fearful
and more centered. Those with closed earth chakras are often imbalanced and
disconnected, and they tend to be fearful and lack in focus.
To open the earth chakra, focus meditation on the base of your spine. Imagine a bright red
energy moving down your spine and branching down into the earth like the roots of a tree.
Visualize yourself receiving the full bounty of the earths primordial energy. Relish in this
most ancient of connections. Embrace your fear. Let go of your fear. Breathe the sacred
breath of survival.

Opening the Water Chakra:

Why do you stay in prison when the door is wide open? Rumi
This chakra, also known as the sacral chakra, deals with pleasure and is blocked by guilt. In
order to open this chakra we must be able to release all blame and guilt. We must be able to
forgive ourselves our past transgressions in order to delve fully into lifes many unique
pleasures. Those with open water chakras tend to be full of wonder and awe for their
connection to the greater cosmos. They tend to be more adaptable, happy, and are able to
go with the flow of life. Those with closed water chakras are often confused and disoriented
about their place in the world, and they tend to suffer from autoimmune deficiencies.
The water chakra is fairly easy to transform as it responds to emotional and creative selfexpression. The moon planet is a very powerful symbol with this chakra, as it controls the
moving tides of our inner-waters. Meditate on the naval area. Imagine your
psychophysiological fluids flowing out into the cosmos like rivers into a mighty ocean.
Visualize yourself moving with the tide of your bodys natural rhythm in balance with the
greater cosmic waves of the universe. Let go of your guilt. Feel the sacred process of
pleasure. Breathe.
Opening the Fire Chakra:
There can be no transformation in the world outside unless there is transformation from
within. It is our responsibility to bring about a radical transformation within ourselves.
This chakra, also known as the navel chakra, deals with willpower and is blocked by shame.
We must be able to let go of past letdowns and disappointments. Or, better yet, transform
them into steppingstones toward higher awareness. We must embrace our insecurities and
our doubts. Dance them into something worthwhile. Dance with the fire. If it burns us to
ashes, then we will rise like a phoenix. Life is too short to live it second-guessing our
authenticity. Those with open fire chakras tend to lead their lives with dynamism, power, and
authority. Those with closed fire chakras tend to feel unworthy and they have a low selfesteem.
To open the fire chakra, focus meditation on the solar plexus. Imagine a bright yellow light
spinning there, like a brilliant sun. Imagine it bathing you in healing light, burning away the
shame and replacing it with a will toward healthy power. Notice how you feel as the
benevolent power of the universe blesses you with a self-esteem and a confidence to
engage the world like only you can. Let go of your shame. Embrace your willpower. Breathe.
Opening the Air Chakra:
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the right to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others Marianne
This chakra, also known as the heart chakra, deals with love and is blocked by grief. We
must be able to release our sadness and loss in order to transform our ego into soul. We

must let the pain from loss flow away like water off a ducks back. Learning how to love is
learning how to let others love is learning how to let go of the egos attachment to love. This
is the secret of attaining happiness despite grief. Those with open air chakras tend to be
filled with unconditional love for self and others, what the Buddhists call Mahakaruna the
Great Compassion. Those with closed air chakras tend to experience poor circulation on
the physical level, lack of empathy on the emotional level, and a lack of devotion on the
spiritual level. They have trouble loving themselves, and they are paranoid and afraid to love
To open the air chakra, focus Meditation on your heart. Imagine a brilliant green light
spinning there and emanating vibrant oxygen that connects you to all things. Feel this lifegiving force invigorate and rejuvenate you. Imagine this connection nourishing your soul and
healing your heart and skin. Touch is important with this chakra, so feel the cosmos
pressing against your skin. Feel your skin absorbing the cosmos. Circulate with the Great
Circulation. Let go of your grief. Allow love to wash over you and transform you into a being
worthy of love and light. Breathe.
Opening the Sound Chakra:
The mystical is not how the world is, but that it is. Ludwig Wittgenstein
This chakra, also known as the throat chakra, deals with truth and is blocked by lies.
Honesty is very important with this chakra. It is essential that we be impeccable with our
word. We must be able to release ourselves from whatever we might be in denial about, and
accept who we truly are. Those with open sound chakras tend to be able to say what they
mean and mean what they say. Their speech is uplifting and wise and they communicate
clearly their intent. Those with closed sound chakras tend to experience poor
communication on the physical level, codependency on the emotional level, unclear
thoughts on the mental level, and insecurity on the spiritual level.
To open the sound chakra, focus meditation on your throat. Visualize a blue sun rising up
from your Solar Plexus and moving into your throat. Imagine it washing over your vocal
chords and emboldening divine expression. Let the Divine Breath to activate your vocal
organs. Allow your numinous voice to resonate in the sacred ether. Let go of the lies youve
been telling yourself. Embrace the truth. Breathe.
Opening the Light Chakra:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful
beyond measure. Marianne Williamson
This chakra, also known as the third eye chakra, deals with insight and is blocked by
illusion. The illusion of separation is the greatest illusion. It is essential that we understand
this, and move past the illusion, in order to actualize the Self in accordance with greater
cosmic frequencies. The majority of people are unable to open this chakra. Those with open
light chakras tend to see themselves and others as spiritually interconnected beings. They
have great intuition, a strong sense of identity, and the ability to self-reflect. Those with

closed light chakras tend to lack in imagination and have weak intuition, resulting in poor
decision making and self-deception.
To open the light chakra, focus meditation on the forehead. Imagine a luminous ball of warm
indigo energy emerging from your pineal gland and spinning slowly at the center of your
forehead. Visualize it shooting powerful bands of light down and through your lower
chakras, filling your entire being with divine light. Picture your third eye opening and
reflecting aspects of the universe that you werent aware of before. Let go of all your
illusions. Allow your intuition to guide you. Breathe.
Opening the Thought Chakra
Everything is energy and thats all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want
and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This
is physics. Albert Einstein
This chakra, also known as the crown chakra, deals with enlightened transcendence and is
blocked by earthly attachment. We must be able to let go of all attachments, especially love,
in order to open this chakra. This is very difficult to do. Because of this, only a very small
percentage of people are ever able to open this chakra. Those with open thought chakras
tend to experience divine union and cosmic love, stretching out forever. Their unique
frequency is in tune with the greater cosmic orchestra. Those with closed thought chakras
tend to be nihilistic and disconnected spiritually, doubting everything they know to be true.
To open the thought chakra, focus meditation on the top of your head. The goal is complete
surrender and dissolution; a letting go of the hold that the physical world has on you.
Imagine an infinite crown of violet energy showering up into the cosmos like a mighty
fountainhead connecting you to all things. Feel the powerful energy pool up from your roots,
passing through the sacred waters of the sacral, basking in the fire of the solar plexus,
breathing in the vital breath of the heart, absorbing the ethereal voice of the throat, pouring
through the dissolution of the Third Eye, and spilling up and out the crown of your head into
a thousand-petaled lotus. Feel the boundaries of your mind body and soul dissolve into all
things. Let go of earthly attachment. Let go of love. You are now love itself. Breathe.
