Opening Up Your Chakras
Here are some ways that you can open up your chakras:
Love Your Relationships
You will find the importance of relationships when your heart chakra is open. This is a time where you can show loyalty and where you can be loving and kind.
If you are being selfish and you are not showing care and love to others, it can mean that your heart chakra is blocked. You can open this chakra by doing yoga such as the lotus pose. You can also chant the Shuni mundra that can bring you peace. Always be thankful for what you have.
Go to the Root
The root chakra is able to help you connect with the world around you. When you feel open and stable then your chakra is balanced and strong. If you are someone that is materialistic or you feel that you are stressed all the time, it is probably blocked.
Take time to tune into yourself and try to do some yoga that will let you have a deeper meaning in yourself. You can also ground yourself by going out in nature and hugging a tree, walking barefoot in the dirt or gardening.
Say What You Mean
Your throat chakra will help you to say what you mean and to be honest. It will help you to communicate and listen to people around you. If you feel that you are not able to be honest or you feel insecure, this can be a blocked chakra.
Open up your throat chakra by relaxing, meditating and focusing on what is true in your life.
The third eye chakra helps you to be aware of what you are doing in your life. If it is balanced, you will be encouraged and you will see things from the point of view of others. If you are making others an idol, being dehydrated or if you are always daydreaming, this can mean you are blocked.
Open your third eye chakra by doing yoga such as the lotus pose. You can do this while you deep breathe and focus on your third eye. Reflect on yourself and what you need.
You can meditate in order to make sure that your chakras are balanced and strong. Here is how to do chakra meditation:
- Sit in a place that is comfortable and calm.

Know Your Emotions
The sacral chakra is where your emotions come from and when your emotions are healthy and strong, your chakra is balanced. If you feel overly sensitive or if you feel overly sexual, your chakra might be unbalanced.
Open your sacral chakra while doing yoga and relaxing and focusing on your sacral chakra opening up.
Find Your Spiritual Being
The crown chakra is where you will reach your spiritual self. It is where you will have desires to be better and to interact and connect with the spiritual world.
To open your crown chakra, you need to put your hands on your body and concentrate on light moving through your spiritual being. Breathe and let your emotions that are negative go.
