Chakra Meditation Exercise
This is a brief exercise that focuses on getting in touch with your heart chakra (fifth chakra) through your physical heart.
Make yourself comfortable, preferable sitting upright on a comfortable, striaght chair. Your back may be supported.
a few deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling as far as you can, without
straining. You may close your eyes, or keep them open, resting your eyes
on the floor a little distance in front of you or on the wall opposite.
Sitting still, alow your breathing to resume its gentle rhythm and the focus your attention on your heart. Become aware of the sensations around your chest and heart and lungs. Just observe, feel and accept whatever you experience.
You may experience subtle changes in the sensations of your heart, it's beat and of the movements of your rib cage and lungs. Allow all this to happen. Just observe.
After a few minutes, come gently back from this intensive observation. Feel your body on the chair. Become aware of your surroundings.
Come fully back with your attention to the here and now and gently resume your normal activities.
If you would like to learn more about the chakras I strongly recommend you study Carolyn Myss' book Anatomy of the Spirit. In this book she maps the chakra system onto both the Kabbalistic Tree of Life and the Chirstian Sacraments. While it is a bit of a dry read, I like it because of the way she shows that very similar energy systems have been acknowledged across Western and Eastern traditions and thereby provides a secular, yet deeply spiritual understanding of the whole human being, body, soul and spirit.
