Chakra Meditation for Beginners

Often we read about how to be physically fit and healthy. It is only rarely that we worry about our mental well-being. Just as we need to exercise our bodies, exercising our mind is equally important. Meditation is a way of exercising your mind, or rather cleansing it. Chakra meditation is a way of revitalizing the energy focal points in your body. The focal points in the body are known as the Chakras.

The Seven Chakras?

There are 7 Chakras in our body. Sahasrara Chakra or the Crown Chakra, represented by the color violet is placed in the top of the head. Ajna Chakra or the Brow Chakra, symbolized by the color indigo blue is placed on the forehead. The next is Vishuddha Chakra or the Throat Chakra, represented by the color pale blue is placed in the throat. Anahata Chakra or the Heart Chakra has color emerald green, and is placed in the center of the chest. Next comes the Manipura Chakra or the Navel Chakra in golden yellow, located above the navel. The sixth Svadhisthana Chakra or Sacral Chakra, which is represented with silver color and it is placed at the sacral bone. The last, Muladhara Chakra or the Root Chakra, represented by the color orange is placed at the base of the spine. Chakra meditation can be done with crystals or with the respective stones for the Chakras.

Step 1

Breathing plays an important role in any form of meditation. To begin with, analyze the problem in your body, or emotional issue or just about anything that is bothering you.

Step 2

Once you have nailed the problem, locate the Chakra that is related to the problem.

Step 3

Every Chakra has a designated stone or a crystal. To be precise, Sahasrara Chakra has the amethyst, diamond or quartz crystal; Ajna Chakra has lapis lazuli or sapphire; Vishuddha Chakra has turquoise, or blue topaz; Anahata Chakra has emerald, malachite; Manipura Chakra has amber or coral; Svadhisthana Chakra has amber or gold and Muladhara Chakra has ruby or garnet. These stones or crystals are known to restore the energy at these focal points and heal them too.

Step 4

Lie down and wear loose clothes while performing the Chakra meditation. Now place the stone on the Chakra where you need the healing. Concentrate with your every breath at the focal point where you have placed the Chakra. For best results, let the stone or the crystal touch your bare skin.

Step 5

If you are performing the Chakra meditation for the entire body and for all the Chakras, then it is always advisable that you work from top to bottom. Take one Chakra at a time and complete your meditation there. Feel the positive energy coming in as you inhale and the negative energy going out as you exhale. Feel relaxed. Just surrender to the moment of purity and you will find yourself at peace. Visualize your Chakra opening as you begin to concentrate and then closing as you end your meditation. For example, in the Heart Chakra, see an emerald light going in and enlightening your heart with strength, love and compassion.

Step 6

Once you are done with Chakra meditation for the whole body, rub your face with your palms and slowly open your eyes. Performing the meditation for all the energy focal points in the body will be Chakra balancing meditation. Drink a glass of water and see the difference in your mind for yourself!

This Chakra meditation for beginners will allow you to develop your spiritual side. Chakra meditation is in a way, closing your eyes to see yourself through the inner eye. It is meant to help you reconnect yourself with your soul and the very essence of your existence. Performing the Chakra meditation is your chance to complete the circle of life!

Book Review: Wisdom Of The Gemstone Guardians

Michael Katz’ Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is unique among crystal healing books in many regards. One thing that sets it apart is that it makes no secret of the fact that is practically entirely ‘channeled’ from spirit entities, the so called ‘Gemstone Guardians.’

At the same time as this may sound ‘airy fairy’ to many conservative health practitioners and even herbalists, author Michael Katz firmly believes this form of methodically approached crystal healing, which he refers to as Gemstone Energy Medicine, has a bright future within the conventional health field.

And Mr. Katz does not stand alone in his conviction. Numerous athletes are firm believers in the power of therapeutic quality gem stones. Testimonials can be found on Katz’ site from Swedish Olympic Medalist Glen Christiansen, British Olympic Swimmer Mark Foster, Arizona Diamondbacks’ Pitcher Tanner Eriksen, and Olympic Trainer and Triathlete Art Dilworth.

Another celebrity testimonial comes from Larry King, of Larry King Live, who can be found quoted on the sleeve of the 1997 edition of this book as saying, “Some inner voice told me to read this book. Thank you, inner voice. What a remarkable study.”

The material in Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is made up of the teachings of twenty-nine ‘Gemstone Guardians,” each of whom is in charge of a particular gemstone. They tell us of the powers and healing qualities of each stone.

Even though Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is technically speaking a non-fiction book, it is so exquisitely well written that it’s actually a more enjoyable read, cover to cover, than most novels. It’s hard to put down once you’ve begun reading it, and I’ve heard of no other book engendering an interest in crystal healing in the previously uninitiated.

It should be noted that Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is not a reference book on crystals. It is an inspirational story with in-depth information about a select few of the most powerful healing gemstones and crystals available on the market today. If you are looking for a reference book, there are better choices. If you’re ready to be set on fire about gemstones, then Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is the book for you.

The best-selling Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians has been reprinted numerous times. The original title of the book was Gifts of the Gemstone Guardians. A later intermediary edition was sold as Gemisphere Luminary.

Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians contains information on Quarts, Lavender Quartz, Aventurine, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Rhodochrosite, Amethyst, Purple Rainbow Fluorite, Blue Sapphire, Indigo (crystalline form of Sodalite), Carnelian, Citrine, Aquamarine, Green Tourmaline, Pink Tourmaline, Sodalite, Leopardskin Jasper, Poppy Jasper, Bloodstone, Ivorite, Opalite, Riverstone, Rhodonite, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli, Black Onyx, Mother of Pearl and Pearl.
