Your Chakras are always open, for the most part, but they may not be in optimal shape or as open as they could be. There are many ways to open up your Chakras, as with cleaning them you must find the method that is right for you.
Beginning with the root Chakra imagine a red ball of energy spinning in a clockwise direction around an imaginary pole going through your body from head to toe. Make the red ball of energy strong, clear, and powerful. Sometimes people let their Chakras pulsate with energy, sometimes Chakras look like spinning galaxies(that's how I visualize them), and sometimes they are cylindrical instead of in the shape of a ball. All you're really doing is activating the energy center. It may feel like you're imagining it at first, but don't let that stop you. In time you'll feel, see, or even hear a tonal sound when you spin your Chakras. Repeat the process with your second Chakra (orange) and all the way up to your Crown Chakra (white or violet).
As for closing down your Chakras, you don't really want to do that. The more energized your Chakras are, the better you will feel, and the better your life will flow. What you may be thinking of is shielding yourself, which is something you want to do if you are around someone with aggressive energy, or someone trying to leech your power from you. To shield you can visualize a shield of white or gold energy surrounding your whole body, leaving you cocooned inside. Or you can visualize a mirror in front of you reflecting the person's negative energy back on them.
yeah pheonix, very well done. You can also cleanse your chakras, which is very good to help you in magickal work and help prevent illness. ground yourself by imaginging you have roots like a tree from your tail bone and feet too , sit with your back straight and feet firmly on the ground, then relax as much as you can then can can also imagine a white circle of protection around you before you put your hands over your crown chakra (top of head) imagine this as a big violet shere of light, imagine a white ray of cleansing healing light coming from your hands and into the crown chakra for a minute or two, then do the same to the third eye chakra, imagine it as an indigo sphere of light,(forehead), then the throat chakra,a blue sphere of light(throat), then the heart chakra, imagine a green sphere of light(heart but aligned with the first two chakras, then the solar plexus, imagine it as a yellow sphere of light(under the rib cage in the centre), then the sacral chakra, imagine as an orange sphere of light(about two inches below the navel), then finally the base chakra , imagine as a red sphere of light,(around the groin area or you can reach it through the base of your spine). This is also a great way to heal yourself aswell as aid your magickal work, ie good if you want to do astral projection, etc.
