Guided meditation to rebalance the chakras with vocal practices
The word chakra is a Sanskrit term meaning “wheel”, as chakras are perceived as wheels of light by those who have the ability to see subtle energy. Hindu and Tibetan traditions, along with many esoteric “schools of worship” around the world, have been describing these energy centers for millennia, and now scientific instrumentation is even starting to record and validate them. In this article, let’s find out what they are and how they are. being able to rebalance the chakras through the voice and guided meditation.
WHAT ARE CHAKRAS / RESTORING CHAKRAS
The chakras are transduction points, energy centers in which the vital energy from the higher planes begins to become denser, becoming the acupuncture points and meridians, and finally transduces itself into the density of the physical body. Frequently, practitioners who work with subtle energy can detect imbalances in the chakras before they manifest in the physical body. The physical, emotional and energy bodies are all interrelated due to a feedback loop that occurs with the energy of the chakras. The physical body, as well as the energy bodies, interface through the chakras and vice versa.
An imbalance in a chakra, for example, can later manifest itself as an imbalance in the physical body. It is possible, for example due to a traumatic injury, that both the physical body and the chakras are simultaneously unbalanced. Physical healing occurs much faster when the energy anatomy, especially in the chakras, is aligned after the injury. Thus, for example, an imbalance in a certain part of the body can be harmonized by making the associated chakra resonate with the voice or with various energy practices, or with a guided meditation to rebalance the chakras.

THE SEVEN MAIN CHAKRAS AND THEIR MEANING
There are seven main chakras, seven rotating energy spheres, centrally located in the front and back of the body:
First Chakra – The Root Chakra (Muladhara)
It is located at the base of the spine, between the anus and the perineum, and is involved in the physical process of elimination by affecting the organs that work with that function. The primary needs of the individual, relating to survival and grounding on a physical level, fall within the sphere of influence of the first chakra.
Second Chakra – Sacral (Svadhishthana)
Located about three inches below the navel, it is associated with sexual energy, reproductive organs and much of the life force. The second chakra indicates our emotional part, our fears, what scares us, what paralyzes us. The rebalancing of this chakra eliminates the most ancient and deepest fears, inner tensions and increases confidence in oneself and in others.
Third Chakra – The Solar Plexus (Manipura)
The third chakra is located just above the navel. Its energy is associated with digestion and digestive organs, as well as power and self-control. In fact, its most important function is related to personal affirmation and the exercise of individual power with respect to society and the environment in general. It therefore indicates the person’s realization, how much the person sees his desire for life as realizable, how much he wants and desires to fight for himself, how much he loves himself.
Fourth Chakra – The Heart Chakra (Anahata)
The heart chakra It is located in the center of the chest between the nipples. On a physical level, it works with the lungs and heart. On an emotional level, it works with the energy of compassion and love. Furthermore, the fourth chakra is the center of the entire energy system of the chakras; in fact it connects the three lower centers, of a physical and emotional nature, linked to the earth, with the three higher, more mental and spiritual, linked to heaven. It is through the harmonic activity of this chakra that people are able to empathize with everything that exists, and to grasp its beauty and harmony, expressing pure and unconditional love.
Fifth Chakra – The Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
The throat chakra, located at the base of the neck, is associated with the process of communication, speech and hearing. The ears are also linked to this chakra, as is obviously the vocal apparatus.
It is the center of the human ability to express, communicate and be inspired; creativity understood in a subtle sense, the relationship with our feelings. It is exchange: giving and receiving. We can only express what we have in ourselves and one of the purposes of the fifth chakra is precisely to allow us a certain interior space, which allows us to reflect on our thoughts and behaviors.
Sixth Chakra – The Third Eye (Ajna)
The sixth chakra is located between the eyebrows, in the middle of the forehead, in the position of the third eye. This chakra is connected to the pituitary gland, the control of the hormonal system and the cerebellum.
Related to it is the psycho-spiritual capacity and balance, the correct perception of the Self at an energy level that we can define as intuitive, sensitive, therefore beyond the mind.
Seventh Chakra – The Crown Chakra (Sahsrara)
The seventh chakra is connected to the center of the top of the head, and faces upwards. It is connected with the brain and the pineal gland. Here we are connected with the sphere of being that encompasses all forms and unmanifested characteristics. From this place we once began our journey towards life and, always here, we feel unity with our divine original principle of which we all belong. It is here that our personal energy field becomes one with the universe.
REBALANCING THE CHAKRAS WITH VOICE AND MEDITATION
A very interesting aspect of the vocal sound that cymatic research (to learn more about what climatic is click here has made visible is that every time the sound meets a membrane, a pattern is imprinted on the surface of the membrane.
Therefore, when we actually sing it is as if we are entering into communication with our own cells and not just our own cells but those of everyone in our immediate vicinity. In fact, the human voice has the power to promote healing in ourselves and others and to transform thoughts and feelings into words and sounds to inspire others.
From my point of view, as well as those of many other masters of sound, vowels can be considered one of the primordial sounds of manifestation. And they are considered sacred in many traditions. However, as they are found in all languages on the planet, it is impossible to connect them to any tradition. Vocal sounds are therefore, I dare say, the most effective method of generating resonance in our etheric and physical body and thus resonating with the energy centers and freeing the chakras.
In both Eastern and Western schools of worship, the power and sacredness of vowels has been known for thousands of years.
Before starting to make the chakras resonate with the voice, it is important to sit upright, with a stable posture, a straight back, an aligned neck and completely relaxed muscles. From this posture it is essential to focus on your breath, letting it flow as it is and take a deep diaphragmatic breath every time you prepare to make a sound.
Many different methods can be used to rebalance the chakras with voice meditation, here I recommend one which consists in making the root chakra resonate with the note Do, increasing note by note as on the piano:
- Note Do for the 1st chakra – Closed U Vocal Sound
- Note Re for the 2nd chakra – Vocal sound U open
- Note Mi for the 3rd chakra – O Vocal Sound
- Note Fa for the 4th chakra – Vocal Sound A
- Note G for the 5th chakra – E Vocal Sound
- Note A for the 6th chakra – Vocal Sound I.
- Note Yes for the 7th chakra – Sound Mmm
