Hi, I'm Lisa Dawn Angerame. I'm one of the founding partners of Nava NYC. A collective of nine yoga and meditation teachers in New York City. Our website is www.navanyc.com. Today, I will be talking to you about meditation.
Chakra meditation is a very powerful meditation practice. It enables us to release blockages in different psychological areas of our life. The chakras are areas of nerveplexes that move up the spine from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. They represent different things. From the bottom, it's food, clothing, shelter, basic needs. Then it moves to our romantic and creative relationships. Then up to the ego. Then to our heart, to our throat, to our third eye, and then to our crown of the head which is the connection to the universe. When you sit to meditate on your chakras, begin at the base of your spine.
So first when you close your eyes, bring your attention to that area. Then begin to acknowledge the representation that that chakra is. In the case of your base chakra, it is food clothing and shelter. If there are any issues in that area of your life, release it, and let it go. Then move up to your relationships with your partner or your creative relationships, your business relationships and acknowledge what's going on there and let it go. Then move up to your ego, are there any issues there? Acknowledge them and let them go. Up to your heart, are you feeling tight there, disconnected? Acknowledge it, and let it go. To your throat, is there any constriction there?
Like you feel like you're not able to speak your mind. Acknowledge it, let it go. Move up to your third eye, right in between your eyebrows. This is your intuition, acknowledge it, let it go. Finally reach up to the crown of your head. This is your connection to the universe. If there are any issues there, acknowledge it, and let it go. And over time with this kind of focus, you'll begin to release yourself of anything that's holding you back from feeling comfortable and secure in those areas. You will be able to feel comfortable with the way you're living, how you're making your money, how your ego is in check in your life. Your heart is open, your voice is pure, you're following your intuition and you're connected to the universe. Chakra meditation can free you from all the blockages in these areas.
