Exercise to Balance Your Chakras

Starting with the 1st chakra, place a red floater candle in a glass bowl filled with water – light the floater. Sit quietly. As you find that peaceful place within, bring your awareness to the chakra. Visualize it as a red wheeling spinning clockwise. Breathe in red, breathe out the old color. Do this for several breaths until the color of your out-breath matches the color of your in-breath. Then repeat the related chakra affirmation as a mantra. As you feel complete, extinguish the chakra floater with candle snuffer. Repeat the above exercise with each chakra using the appropriate chakra floater, color and affirmation. Never leave lit candles unattended.

The Chakras (meaning “wheel” in Sanskrit) are spinning energy centers invisible to the human eye. There are seven major chakras that run along the spine, each having its own color and characteristic. In your personal growth, you go through many different moods and ways of being, each relating to different chakras. Understanding and being in tune with your chakras allows you to awaken to your own personal power while balancing your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Use our Chakra Floaters to affirm each chakra and to discover your inner self. When the chakras are in balance they glow like brightly colored flowers.
