There are many benefits to daily meditation. It boosts our immunity, balances the emotions, reduces stress, regulates your heart rate, calms the mind and increases your energy—just to name a few. We can also use a chakra meditation, along with chakra crystals, to balance and align our 7 chakras.
The 7 chakras are invisible wheels of energy within our body, running from the base of our spine to above the top of our head, through which energy flows. Each chakra is connected with a color of the rainbow, as well as specific healing crystals that correspond with its color. When our chakras become unbalanced, we begin to feel “stuck,” as if we can’t move forward or seem to accomplish anything. We feel ungrounded and all over the place, going through the motions of life without any focus. When our chakras are balanced and aligned, we feel energized, grounded and motivated–making chakra balancing all the more important.
Our amazing friend, Amy Budden of Connect the Mind, has created this powerful 30-minute guided chakra meditation to use along with our chakra healing stones. Amy provides personalized, guided meditations using technology to simplify your life and super-charge your meditation practice. With her meditations and technology, you can quickly change your brainwave state to theta or delta–those states of focused relaxation that longtime meditators and monks can access. Go Deep. Relax without distraction. Meditate like a pro! And it sounds as dreamy as it feels!

The sound frequency of this guided chakra meditation is Delta (0.5-4Hz.), also called the deep sleep wave. The Delta frequency is the slowest of the frequencies and is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep, transcendental meditation, where awareness is fully detached. Delta is a realm of your consciousness mind, and the gateway to the universal mind and the collective consciousness, where information received is otherwise available at a conscious level. Hence, why not having enough deep sleep is detrimental to your health in more ways than one!
For Amy’s guided chakra meditation, find a comfortable position in your home, or sacred space, and close your eyes. If you want to use your chakra healing stones along with the chakra meditation, lay on your back in a comfortable position, and place each stone over the corresponding chakra center. Because specific stones are associated with each of the 7 chakras, we recommend meditating with one of the chakra-specific crystals which you can find using our chakra stones chart.
To create a chakra body grid layout,place a chakra stone on each energy center, starting with your root chakra and going all the way to your crown chakra. As you focus on clearing and energizing each chakra in the guided meditation, let the special healing properties of each chakra stone enhance the healing of your energy body.
