Over the past centuries the people of the eastern world have perfected age old traditions and practices. They have learnt the value of incorporating these traditions and values into their everyday lives. One such tradition is meditation.
Meditation is something many people will have heard about, but how much do you really know about it. Perhaps you already know that eastern practices such as yoga and meditation have become very trendy in Hollywood and with many stars. What you might not know is that meditation can work for you too and it is easier than you may think.
Minding Your Chakras
Meditation comes in many different forms. However, an increasingly popular type of meditation that is gaining momentum and a substantial following is chakra meditation. One thing to encourage you to try chakra meditation is that is simple, easy to do and a synch to memorize.
You even get soothing chakra meditation music to help you on your way to chakra meditation and healing. The principles of chakra meditation revolve around the 7 major energy points in your body, or your 7 major chakras. Energy is an important part of your being.
Within the teachings of chakra meditation, it is believed that by keeping your chakra energy balanced and your chakras open you will ensure optimum wellbeing. The practices of chakra meditation help to balance our energy and open closed or clogged chakras. Each chakra has a different location and is associated with a different color.
To understand the importance on chakra meditation we need to delve deeper into what a chakra really is. Each chakra is a spot of energy in the body. Many teachers of chakra meditation will tell you to think of the chakra as looking like a lotus flower and that this flower spins round and round.
Now, energy is supposed to flow freely though the 7 chakras of your body. It is this free flow of energy that keeps you healthy, peppy and on top of your game. However, when your energy is depleted or if the chakra is closed or clogged up it will look like a tightly shut lotus bud and the energy will not be flowing.
The aim of chakra meditation is to help you restore that energy free flow to your life. Chakra meditation and therapy is also a great way to relax and bring your mind back into check so that your mind body connection is healthy and strong.
Many people are turning to alternative ways to keep healthy and live a balanced life. Medications and medical professionals are not always the answer; shouldn’t you be looking for an alternative answer?
