Chakra Light Meditation

By Ferrel | HealthyShaolin | 11 May 2021


Welcome to this guided meditation for deep relaxation.  I’m just going to help relax you.  Let go of any expectations you may have about this session and allow yourself to be present. Enjoy the journey as it unfolds.  All you have to do is listen to the sound of my voice throughout, and if your attention wanders, gently bring it back. 

You are not to listen to this recording while driving or operating other heavy machinery as it may make you tired or even sleepy.  But it will all right if you drift off to sleep while listening to this recording, as the suggestions will still be heard by your subconscious mind, and your quiet mind will act on any of the directions that you hear while asleep or in an altered state of consciousness. 

The primary goals of meditation are to gain an accurate perception of reality, which is the experience of Spirit and all its aspects.  It is a relaxing experience. 

And meditation can bring an experience of Spirit in this lifetime. This is spiritual communion. Through meditation, we will learn to experience spiritual communion and how we can help others achieve this knowledge and experience. 

Other benefits of meditation include: reduced stress, improved concentration, more ordered thought processes, enhanced intellectual skills, creativity, the immune system and physiological processes are strengthened, biologic aging is slowed, regenerative energies are activated, intuition awakens, and appreciation for your life, the lives of others and all life is enhanced. 

To begin. 

Find a quiet space in which to sit or lie down.  If you are sitting, ensure that your spine is erect and that your feet are flat on the floor.  Breathe slowly in and out, in and out.  You are in a good place.  Slowly breathe in and out, in and out. 

If you are lying down, choose a firm surface, and connect your spine with it.  Move your arms out to the side, with palms facing upwards.  Move your legs a little so that they are wider apart and let your ankles and your feet relax to the side.  Breathe slowly in and out, in and out.  You are in a good place.  Breathe in and out. Relax. 

Regardless of whether you are sitting or lying, let all external distractions fade away.  Close your eyes. 

Take a deep breath in through the nose, and then exhale out through the mouth.  Feel your body sinking deeply and relaxing, letting go of any tension that may be stored within the body. 

Let your breathing become rhythmic and gentle.  Feel the rise and fall of your chest as the breath goes in and out, in and out.   

Feeling relaxed. 

Feeling tired. 

Letting go. 

Relaxing into the moment. 

You are in a safe environment. 

Relax. 

Shine the spotlight of attention on your feet, searching for any inner tension.  Tighten and tense the feet, either pointing or flexing and then, release the tension.  Feel the difference as tension starts to dissipate.   

Now, shine the spotlight of your attention on the ankles and the calf muscles and repeat, tensing those muscles.  Point the feet, if necessary, and then relax, letting go of all the tension.  Feel the difference as the tension starts to fade away. 

Move your attention to the knees and the thighs, and tense, holding those muscles tightly, feeling the tension rippling within, and then release.  Feel the difference as the tension starts to dissipate.  Tighten the knees and the thigh muscles again.  Hold, and then release the tension.  Feel the complete dissolution of all tension. 

Embrace that feeling of relaxation as the tension dissipates.

Next, shine the spotlight of your attention on your buttocks.  Tighten your buttocks, hold the tension, and then release.  Feel the difference as all tension fades away. 

Now shine the spotlight of your attention on the middle of your stomach.  Tighten your stomach muscles.  Hold the tension, then release.  Feel the warmth that attends this.  Do it again.  Tighten your stomach muscles, hold the tension in, and then release.  Feel the difference as the tension dissipates. 

Relax. 

Shine the spotlight of your attention on your chest.  Tighten and relax your chest muscles.  Hold the tension in, and then release.  Again.  Tighten and relax your chest muscles.  Feel the difference as the tension fade away. 

Now shine the spotlight of your attention on your shoulders and arms.  Tighten and relax them.  Tighten again and relax them.  Feel the difference as the tension dissipates. 

Relax.  Drift away into that safe space within yourself. Relax. 

Next, shine the spotlight of your attention on your throat.  Tighten your throat muscles and relax them.  Feel the immense relaxation that comes with this. 

Relax. 

Relax. 

Shine the spotlight of your attention on your face.  Tighten the muscles of your face.  Hold it and relax your facial muscles. Again.  Tighten the muscles of your face.  Hold it longer this time, and then relax.  Feel the difference as the tension fades away. 

Relax. 

Inhale deeply, breathing in through the nose for a count of 1…2…3…4 and hold the breath for a count of 1…2…3…4 and now exhale out through the mouth 1…2…3…4.  Let your breathing become soft and rhythmic. 

Repeat.   

Inhale deeply again, breathing in through the nose for a count of 1…2…3…4 and hold the breath for a count of 1…2…3…4 and now exhale out through the mouth 1…2…3…4.  Let your breath become natural and soft and rhythmic. 

Now, you are standing at the top of some steps that wind down into a walled garden.  From you vantage point, you can see a carefully tended garden with beautiful flowers.  The fragrance from these flowers is heady, the scents linger in the air, so as you breathe in, you feel the wonder of nature.  As you move down the steps, you move deeper and deeper into this journey, feeling more and more relaxed. 

Moving onto step…..five…..feeling relaxed. 

Four…..sinking deeper into a state of deep relaxation 

Three…..feeling contented 

Two…..feeling inner peace wash over you 

One…..letting go 

You are standing on the edge of a lawn area and the grass is soft beneath your bare feet. 

Now close your eyes, and transport yourself to a quiet, secluded cove where the sand is golden, and the sun is high in the sky.  It bathes you in its gentle warmth. 

You feel very relaxed here as your feet sink deeper into the sand.  Wriggle you toes and feel sand slipping between them.  This feels good and reminds you of your childhood.  The warmth from the sand emanates through the soles of your feet and up your legs.  You sit down and make yourself comfortable. 

It is so relaxing.  You are at peace.  You feel warm and protected. 

The sound of the ocean is rhythmic and gentle.  You synchronize your breath with the gentle waves as they ebb and flow.  The ocean is a sparkling expanse of turquoise glistening beneath the sun’s rays.  Seagulls hover above the waves, darting in and out of the water and then, they soar high overhead.  There is a sense of peace and tranquility in this place. 

We are ready now to begin the Chakra Light Meditation. 

Begin by placing your awareness into the center of your base chakra, the Mulahara.  Experience yourself as yellow light and its yellow rays of light emanating from this chakra.  Fill your awareness with this light and feel yourself as this light and energy.  

“I exist in Joy as an entity of Spirit.  I prosper in the abundance of Spirit.” 

Next move your awareness into the center of the sacral chakra, the Swadisthana.  It is located near the buttocks.  

Experience yourself as white light and its white rays of light emanating from this chakra.  Fill your awareness with this light and feel yourself as this light and energy. 

“I exist as Peace in the awareness of Spirit.  In Bliss I experience the infinite manifestations of Spirit.” 

Continue moving your awareness upward into the center of the abdominal chakra, the Manipura.  Experience yourself as red light and its red rays of light emanating from this chakra.  Fill your awareness with this light and feel yourself as this light and energy. 

“I exist as energy of Spirit.  I express compassionate vitality.” 

Continue moving your awareness upward into the center of the heart chakra, the Anahata.  Experience yourself as smoky blue light and its rays of light emanating from this chakra.  Fill your awareness with this light and feel yourself as this light and energy. 

“I exist as Divine Love.  With unselfishness and Joy, I serve humanity.” 

Continue moving your awareness upward into the center of the throat chakra, the Vishuda.  Experience yourself as sea-blue light, and its rays of light emanating from this chakra.  Fill your awareness with this light and feel yourself as this light and energy. 

“I exist as Wisdom, incarnated as a Bodhisattva.” 

Continue moving your awareness upward into the center of the brow chakra, the Ajna.  Experience yourself as snow white light and its rays of light emanating from this chakra.  Fill your awareness with this light and feel yourself as this light and energy.   

“I exist as infinite awareness.  Divine unity is flowing through me.”

Continue moving your awareness upward into the center of the crown chakra, the Sahasrara.  Experience yourself as colorless white light and its rays of light emanating from this chakra.  Fill your awareness with this light and feel yourself as this light and energy. 

“I am Spirit: Love, Light, Compassion, Truth, Wisdom, Joy, Peace and Bliss.” 

Relax. 

As your meditation deepens, the consciousness expands into the Light of Spirit—Love, Joy and Bliss. 

Relax.

You may repeat this as many times as you feel it is important, running up and down the chakra as you would if your body were a violin. 

It is almost now time to finish our session. 

Imagine that you are at the base of a series of five stairs.  You step onto the first, you are beginning the journey home.  You step onto the second, you are beginning to return to your normal everyday consciousness.  A third step and you are still closer to yourself.  You are beginning to awaken now.  You step onto the fourth step.  Gently waking.  A fifth and final step, and you are home, fully awake. 

You will take these feelings of deep relaxation and calmness with you.  You can also return to the meditation at any time that you choose.  All you need to do, is to close your eyes, and relax.
