Awaken the Chakras With These 12 powerful Sound Mantras

Use powerful sound healing to clear your chakras.Chakra is the Sanskrit for wheel or disk. In Ayurveda, yoga and meditation the word refers to the wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven Chakras, starting from the root Chakra at the base of the spine, rising up to the top of the head or Crown Chakra.

Chakras are not seen by the human eye, but can be visualized as spinning wheels of energy, each having a specific color. This invisible force which is keeping us alive, healthy and vibrant is our Prana, or vital life energy.

Sound is vibration, and each of the seven Chakras has a unique harmonizing vibration. When combined with a mantra during meditation, they resonate deeply in the energy body and open the flow of Prana. Imagine the mantra as a tuning fork and each chakra is an instrument – visualize striking them together until the chakras are in vibrational resonance with the mantra tuning fork. Energy that does not share the same resonance will be cleared allowing us to thrive, not just survive.
