Talking to HT Lifestyle, Radhika Iyer, Yogini, Mountaineer, Philanthropist and Founder of Anahata Organic, shared ways to practice chakra meditation and explore the seven chakras within your body.
1. The right of the Muladhara chakra is ‘ To Be Here’. The root chakra makes you more present. Meditating on the root chakra makes you feel more grounded and secure in your body. When blocked, you may feel disconnected from yourself and the world around you.
2. The right of the Swadhisthana chakra is ‘To Feel’. This chakra balances your feelings and is the seat of emotions and sensuality. A blocked sacral chakra causes emotional imbalance by way of extreme feelings and overwhelming sensations.
3. The right of the Manipura chakra is ‘To Act’. This is the chakra where your power and self-confidence manifest. This chakra handles your energy, attracting Prana from the cosmos.
4. The right of the Anahata chakra is ‘To Love’. This chakra is the seat of self-love, compassion, empathy, and forgiveness. The colour green is connected with the Anahata chakra, and it signifies change and loving energy. This chakra aids in directing love back to yourself, which automatically allows you to share it with others.
5. The right of the Vishuddha chakra is ‘To Speak’. The throat chakra is all about communication. This meditation will help you unblock your throat chakra, allowing for better and clearer communication in your life.
6. The right of the Sahasrara Chakra is ‘To Know’. The crown chakra is the spiritual knowledge centre, meditating on which allows more intuitive knowledge to flow to you and aligns your energy with the universe.
7. The right of the Ajna chakra is ‘To See’. The third eye chakra brings clarity into your life, opening your eye to the unseen truths of the universe. You become more perceptive to signs, and meditating on this chakra sharpens your intuition.
