How To Open The Chakras With Sound
Chakra Sound Therapy
The 7 main Chakras are areas in our body where energy flows in and out.
The word in Sanskrit means “wheel”.
These “wheels” turn.
They spin to open and close to take in energy and then push it out to distribute it through the body.
The Chakras can close down, become sluggish or not be communicating with each other very well.
Unwanted physical and/or emotional/mental symptoms can develop.
But guess what? These energy centers can be opened and regulated with a very easy, at-home practice.
By chanting certain sounds the different vibrational patterns act on each Chakra and there is one sound to go with each one.
I’m an acupuncturist and we do this practice in our clinic routinely with very positive results.
The process: Each Chakra has its own vibration and sound is a wave, a vibration.
For each sound inhale and as you exhale say the corresponding sound 5 times, do this for 7 breaths per chakra.
Don’t be shy, let it ring out! You may notice that some Chakras are easier than others to get the sound out.
