How To Open Your Third Chakra Navel Chakra Manipura Chakra

Carrying on with our Chakra opening and chakra balancing lessons. Today we will be working with the navel chakra also known as the third chakra or the manipura chakra. This chakra encircles confidence, especially when in a group. When open, you should feel in control and have good feeling of dignity in yourself. If it’s under-active: you tend to be passive and indecisive. You could be frequently apprehensive and this doesn’t reward you. If it’s over-active: you tend to be imperious and aggressive.

Step One

Sit on your knees, with your back straight, but relaxed.

Step Two

Put your hands before your stomach, slightly below your solar plexus. Let the fingers join at the tops, all pointing away from you. Cross the thumbs and straighten the fingers (this is important). Concentrate on the Navel Chakra and what it stands for, at the spine, slightly above the navel.

3-03

Step Three

Silently, yet clearly, chant the sound “RAM.”

All this time, let yourself relax even more, continuing to think about the chakra, it’s meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.

Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed. You should have a “clean” feeling (for every chakra).

Notes:

With practice you will be able to achieve this clean relaxed peace more easily and quickly.

It is important that you have a quiet place to do this where you will not be disturbed.

Remember to turn off the phone or other things that may distract you.

If you have chakra mantras, you can also use them during this exercise. (If you need mantras or other meditation tools, see the Resources and Products page.)

It is also ok to kneel on a mat or pillow if you find the floor is too hard for you.

Remember, this is easy, don’t over think it. Just breathe.

Balance Chakras with Chakra Suite

As many of my long term reader know, we used to offer various Chakra mantras to aid in the balancing of all chakras. However we ran into issues with the various audio hosts going offline. After much research we have found a great new system that you can download and use at will. Whether on the go or in the comfort of your own home.

The system is called The Chakra Suite and features 70 minutes of beta wave audio with 10 minutes devoted to each chakra for a full and complete chakra balancing.

One of the best qualities of this system is that you do not have to be familiar with meditation for it to be effective. You can listen during activities or during rest and still receive the same benefits. This is great news for those of you who are new to meditation and working with  your chakras.

“This unique combination of techniques absolutely ensures the brainwave and chakra energy patterns are tuned to exactly the right frequencies.  The way the music works makes sure this happens very quickly.  The chakra will then start to resonate in harmony with the dominant frequency in the brain.  This stimulation will clear any blockages in that particular chakra allowing energy to flow more easily through the energy pathways.  This attunes and energizes the chakra in a natural way.  Each time you listen to the specific chakra vibration within the music – that chakra is stimulated and strengthened.”

When it is open, negative experience is transformed into wisdom and learning.
