Beginning chakra balancing through meditation can be tricky in the beginning. Your mind will wander. You will not know what you are supposed to focus on. Even though the best advice in meditation (which is thousands of years old) is to focus on the point between the eyebrows, and through that eventually you will come to a state of rest there as you mind expands in conscious awareness of who you really are and the nature of your relationship to the universe around you—it can be very difficult to concentrate like this in the beginning. You must use your will to let go of the thought “bubbles” that constantly arise in our heads to distract us and take us off track. Let that part of the mind go quiet through continual effort to concentrate your mind to the specific place on the forehead. Eventually it will happen.

This is when the healing begins and the chakras start to balance. Perhaps you have held onto erroneous thought patterns unjustifiably for years. Maybe they have impeded your progress in certain areas. Perhaps even they have caused you a life of poverty or regret. Meditation will cure this easily. As ancient yogic tradition states, “Meditation solves all problems.” I believe this to be true.

But it takes time and considerable effort. We can see from the most ancient artworks representing mankind that early man meditated as well. It was perhaps one of the earliest great gifts to the human race. In my view, it is quite possibly the greatest.

One need not focus on the individual chakras for the healing to begin. This is unnecessary to your success in balancing them. Just focus the mind in meditation, let it rest in the inner awareness of self, and you will find that the chakras are aligned and purified in the process. It really is as simple as that. The hard part comes from having to discipline the mind with considerable concentration over time. It is not something that happens overnight.

So take heart and resolve to meditate just once a day in the beginning, even if it is only for 15-20 minutes, then after some time, once you have learned to somewhat study your mind, make it longer. Possibly begin meditating twice a day, once at the beginning and once at the end. Eventually you may add a third time to meditate at midday as you become comfortable relaxing in pure awareness.

Your chakras are certain to be aligned and cleansed during this process and any negative thought processes you have held onto will begin to be released, causing you greater enjoyment of life and more full living in all areas.

You will perhaps experience certain visions as you progress in meditation. As the coiled Kundalini energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine begins to come unraveled and flows up from the base of the spine, you may see different colored lights or hear various sounds in your meditation. Do not be alarmed, this is quite natural. Eventually, the Kundalini energy will reach the skull, piercing the brain, and you will find true peace. You will rest in the peace of true inner awareness and come to have a different understanding of the universe.

This is the goal of meditation, and the balancing of the chakras. If you don’t meditate already, why not begin today?
