An imbalanced chakra may result in a feeling that "something is off" and long-term stress can close a chakra leading to stale and stagnant energy flow.
The exercise below allows you align and balance your chakras:
Chakra Breath Meditation
I imagined my breath rising and filling the crown chakra as a white light. Then I imagined my breath as a divine white light surrounding me and said "I am surrounded by divine light and love." Then I took another breath imagining the divine light being drawn into my heart chakra and also a strand of it being connected from my crown chakra to the universe saying "The divine becomes a part of my consciousness and I am opening my heart to love." Then I let the white light stream down in a column with each breath I took the light traveled down my body to a chakra. I imagined the white light cleansing and balancing the chakras. When I got to the root chakra, I imagined the white light reaching my feet connecting me to the earth and grounding me and I said "May I walk the path of the divine light and may all my chakras be cleansed and make be be at peace."
After this meditation, I felt relaxed and happy. I had mental clarity and could think without so many thoughts scattered in my mind. Also, this meditation expanding my auric energy so throughout the day, my aura had a positive, vibrant energy level. I had a good day and felt I was attracting a lot of positive energy. I've found that meditation in the morning helps a lot in making the day less stressful. The first day was hard to concentrate and I couldn't get myself relaxed. After trying it the second day for fifteen minutes, I was able to become more relaxed when the time reached eight minutes. I am going to practice other chakra meditations for the next few days.
