Breathing Deeply Through Your Chakra’s

Breathing Deeply Through Your Chakra’s

Three weeks ago in the first blog for this series I shared with you Grounding and Shielding your energy techniques.  Today we will take that further so that you may begin to enjoy connecting in with your body through the awareness of peaceful breaths.

You may wish to re-read the first blog “How to Ground and Shield your Energy” to familiarise your self if you do not have a daily practice of doing that exercise, as we are going to jump right into tuning into our bodies through the chakra system.

What is meant by tuning into your chakra with intention;  we tune in by many ways, for this blog though it is through your breath.  When you breathe into a charka we are working with you create opportunity to listen to your energy system and your physical body.  Intention is very powerful so before beginning say “My intention is to connect in with my energy systems and my physical body through my chakras with love, ease and grace.”  use this one till you find one that resonates fully for you.

If you have low blood pressure, anaemic or anything where you may feel light headed please do not do the fast breathing, you may instead breath normally with the same focus and intentions- you may also need to sit in a chair or lay down.

When you breathe into each chakra imagine the colour of that chakra.   Also imagine your breath going in and out at the chakra location.

Starting at the Base/ Root Chakra_ Red_ Base of spine / perineum

Bring your attention to your base chakra and tighten the muscles here as if you need to visit the bathroom.  Breathe deeply through your base chakra the energy going in and out of your spine / perineum see the colour red.  On the out breath purse your lips and breath out fast 7 times in succession – do 3 rounds of this breathing with a slight pause after the 7 out breaths  each time.  Then continue with slow relaxed breathing still focusing on breathing through the chakra.

Relax these muscles and tune into your Base Chakra area – Ask the following 3 questions

1) Am I tight any where in this region?

2) Do I feel pain in this region?  Do any thoughts or emotions rise up along with this pain?

3) Do you sense any emotions rising up from this area on their own? – take your time.

*When you feel into the above three questions also note any places, people or events that arise.

Allow your self time to tune in and connect, there is nothing for you to achieve here you are simply re-connecting with your inner knowing.

**We do the same process for all the chakras**
