Before Attempting to open your chakras please use some form of a psychic shield, psychic protection first. Why should you be protected? well, you always need to be protected when working with chakras as when you open your chakras you are open to the spirit. This is serious so if you are seriously wanting to do this you must do psychic protection which you can find here Psychic protection. If you need to learn how to meditate and get into a meditative state check our article on meditation.

Once you learned the above we can begin, So enter the meditation state and deep breathe with the methods above. This Chakra meditation we are going to open your chakras one by one slowly. So with your eyes still closed, we will start the chakra meditation, with the deep breathing through the nose and out the mouth.

Make sure when you breathe through your nose you then hold it there for the count of 4 seconds. You can then exhale slowly out the mouth. It is important to keep repeating this process throughout the meditation. Visualize your guides and angels being present with you and allowing you to be fully protected. We will now start opening 7 major chakras.

Opening the root chakra

Now visualize a closed lotus flower starting from the base/root chakra. Some people struggle with this so if you can’t visualize this flower try a closed umbrella so when we I mention opening the flower if you’re visualizing an umbrella see it open.

See this Closed lotus flower as in the color red, As you see its texture and quality see the petals slowly start to open up. Keep visualizing it opening slowly don’t rush it to open, as this opens you will feel safe and grounded. Once it is fully opened up you can move to the sacral chakra.

Opening the Sacral Chakra

Visualize an orange lotus flower. You feel the energy coming from this flower as you see it start to open slowly. As it opens to the fullest you will feel more connected to emotions and your creative side of things.

Opening the Solar Plexus Chakra

Now visualize a bright yellow lotus flower, see it open slowly and feel those gut feelings you normally feel. When this is opened you will have more chance with willpower. Once opened to the fullest move to the next chakra for the opening.

Opening Heart Chakra

See this lotus flower as a green color try to get it as clear in your mind as you can. As you start to open this slowly and once open you will feel the compassion and love it brings. You will see things in a different light.

Opening the Throat Chakra

See this flower as a blue in color, see the lotus in your throat and see it opening slowly. This is the communication you use for the spirit and also in other areas of your psychic development. See it open and when then open move to the next and important chakra.

Opening the Third Eye

Visualize this flower as Indigo situated in between your brows on your forehead. You must see this as an Indigo color if some of you not sure on the colors to visualize then look at the chart near the top of the page. See the Lotus indigo flower open slowly and feel the intuition come to you. This is an important chakra so please try to spend more time opening this as it’s your inner vision.

This will be used for your clairvoyance so the more detail the better. You may start to see images or visions when opening this chakra so do not worry you are completely normal. Many people go through this when first working on their third eye and the capabilities it carries is very important. So open it up slowly. Once done you can then move to the last opening 7 major chakras.

Opening the Crown Chakra

See this lotus flower on the crown of your head, see this as purple/violet or white your choice. See it open slowly as you feel the wisdom grow inside you been more open to available for you. The truth and knowledge and spirituality.


Once you have done this if you want to remain open while you practice reading a few friends. Or try to do some psychic work then do so but MOST Importantly and I cannot stress this as much but ALWAYS CLOSE them when not using them. Yes sorry about the caps there but so many don’t do this and it is vital you do.

As you will be more open to spirits and other entities. Imagine you live in a popular neighborhood. It’s like throwing your house keys in the street and shouting ” Am off out” yeah silly I know but that’s inviting everyone in your home. Just as it is with your chakras, you need to keep your spiritual self-safe.

Closing 7 major chakras

After you finished using your chakras you must close them. To do this go into meditation state and start from the top this time. So when you visualize the white/purple lotus on the crown of your head visualize the petals coming together slowly and closing. Then move down to the third eye and see this also closing do the same with each one. So close all the chakras when you are not using them. Start with the crown chakra, Third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral, and root. For each chakra see the flower fully close on each chakra and slowly.

Every time you want to conduct a psychic session or practice a psychic reading for someone to do this whole meditation again… Opening 7 major chakras may be fun but it’s also should be taken seriously. Look after them and maintain them by daily opening and closing which also we will create another future post on cleansing them. Also at times some of our chakras can become blocked which can cause whos not to feel like our selves. In a future post, we will go more into this. Hope you enjoyed our opening 7 major chakras meditation practice this and soon it will become second nature.
