Imagine accepting every facet of yourself without feeling the need for constant self-improvement. Imagine feeling such absolute and pure love for yourself that it radiates to everyone around you and spreads heavenly light where ever you go. Imagine experiencing such a profound courage to take on anything and everything without a second’s hesitation. Imagine having such a vivid imagination with ideas that will change the entire world. Envision holding a infectious happiness throughout any situation, good or bad. Envision following your biggest dreams and achieving great success. Envision knowing your true destiny and the precise steps needed to fulfill your purpose.
Connect with every human being, including yourself, on a deeper level than ever thought possible through something you already possess within.
Meditation is such a powerful tool to combat the everyday stress of life and to build up your own buffer zone to keep a sense of peace, serenity, happiness, and clarity throughout your entire lifetime. Personally, I meditate twice a day, once in the morning and once more at anytime I feel the need to recharge my buffer zone.
You may be wondering how to meditate or maybe you have tried before and didn’t get much out of it. There is no one way to meditate and no way is “more right” than any other way. There are many guided meditations out there to get started. Some go through opening the chakras as blooming flowers with each corresponding chakra color as a flower. Others suggest imagining a floating orb in the area of the chakra with the corresponding color and watching this orb grow bigger, brighter, and spinning faster and faster. Some imagine a colorful cloud swaying back and forth between each inhale and exhale. Whichever imagery resonates with you is best. It is important to note that chakra meditation is only one of many different kinds of meditation. The key to meditation is to take a break from the thoughts that swirl around in your head all the time and simply focus on something else for a change such as your breathing, music, or imagining opening the chakras.
To begin chakra meditation, you should at least know the basics of the 7 chakras.
