Chakra sleep meditation is a simple, yet powerful practice to align your chakras and help you fall asleep. It can also be used to restore your sleep after illness, stress or other challenges.
Guided Chakra Meditations
If you’re new to chakra meditation, it can be helpful to start with a guided meditation first. These can be downloaded from apps or online meditation websites and podcasts.
Ideally, the voice should be slow and soothing to aid in a deep state of relaxation. Occasionally, commercials may interrupt the meditation; these are easily avoided by opting for a paid app such as Calm or Headspace.
Unblocking a Blocked Chakra
To get started, choose an appropriate location that’s quiet and comfortable. This could be a living room, bedroom or outdoors. You’ll need to get into a seated position, close your eyes and breathe deeply.
Mentally scan each chakra to see if you feel any discomfort or blocked energy. This can help you pinpoint areas that need work.
For example, if you’re feeling dizzy or nervous during the day, it might be time to focus on your solar plexus chakra. This energy center can affect your self-confidence and how you communicate.
Try a Heart Chakra Meditation
The heart chakra is often associated with compassion and love. When it’s out of balance, it can cause feelings of loneliness or lack of empathy for others.
During this type of meditation, you’ll focus on the color and shape of each chakra. You’ll also be guided to re-energize each one of them, as well as your overall energy and emotions. The goal is to connect to your true self and to release any blocks that are keeping you from fully expressing yourself.
