Yesterday was my last “Meditation for Health and Focus” class at Queens University in Charlotte, NC. The class lasted 6 weeks and was taught by Rebecca Nagy. She is very knowledgeable about different forms of meditation and I learned much from the class. She introduced me to the concept of Chakras and how they can be used in meditation to help certain areas of the body.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, the chakras are energy vortices allowing energy to pass freely through the body. Seven of these are referred to as the main chakras these are the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras.
They allow for the free flow of energy, which promotes good health and vitality. If an energy blockage arises this may cause physical ailments that correspond to the area of the blockage, by working with the chakras one can help heal the areas that are causing the problems.
I suffered a pudendal nerve injury due to the spin classes and have explored many avenues to help heal that area. So in my quest to use different healing modalities I have decided to try meditation using the chakras.
As shown on this diagram. Each Chakra has it’s own color and by meditating on the color in your body you can help remove blockages that may be causing physical ailments.
Anyway, I often have a hard time seeing the colors in my head and so I created this Chakra Color Generator to help me visualize the chakra colors. You can either look at it directly when you are meditating or just use it as reference to help you “see” the colors in your mind.
To use the Chakra Color Generator click on the Chakra color you want and the screen will change to that color. That’s all there is to it. Enjoy.
