Ajna chakra meditation– focusing on the 6thchakra and imagine light and the quality openness and expansion. Breathing into the chakra from all directions. On your exhale, extend energy lines to earth and sky. Continue. You may add the bija mantra Om
Pause of the breath– Relax and start focusing on the breath, watching it go in and out. Start becoming aware of the pause between the inhalation and the exhalation. During each pause relax deeper, feeling the peace in the space of no movement. Notice the mind quieting.
Color Meditation– sit upright and imagine a white ball of white light above your head. Imagine pulling a red color out of this light and bring it through the crown of your head and through the spine to the first chakra. Notice how you feel with this color. Next pull down an orange color from the white light and bring it down to the second chakra. How does your body feel with an orange light. Next bring a yellow light through the crown of your head and down the spine into the third chakra location and feel this warm energy. Bring an emerald green light down into the forth chakra at the heart center. Pull a bright blue light down and into the throat chakra. Take an indigo blue light into the third eye and feel a coolness of this color as it bathes your third eye. And lastly, the crown chakra glows with a vibrant violet. Check all the chakras to see if they are retaining their colors. Check on which are the strongest and weakest. Which are the nourishing or more uncomfortable? Internally play with and balance the colors. Feel the harmony that it creates.
Eye Exercise– close your eyes and bathe them in the darkness as you start to focus on the location of the 6thchakra. When you feel centered open your eyes and gaze straight ahead. As you keep your head steady, look upwards. Let your gaze follow a straight line downward. Repeat and as you finish, look ahead and close your eyes. Open your eyes and look right and than left. Repeat and make ½ circle upward and downward and finally full circles in both directions. Center your eyes a final time and close them. Continue with a meditation
