Think about what is going on in your life right now, right this minute. Not went on yesterday or what you think might happen tomorrow - think about what is going on right now. Because that is also what is going on with your chakras. How you feel about each of the items listed for each chakra can tell you about the chakra itself. If there is not balance in any of the areas then that chakra may be the one that needs your attention.
Do a quick self-balancing exercise.
Think about your root chakra and imagine a time when you felt the most secure and grounded. Imagine an amazing family dinner in the comfort and warmth of your family or a time when you were in nature and surrounded by Mother Earth.
Think about your sacral chakra and imagine the best sex you have ever had. Remember the passion and the relationship that made it possible.
Think about your stomach chakra and imagine the best meal that you ever ate or if your job involves the processing of information the most difficult project that you were able to process easily and gain recognition for.
Think about your heart chakra and imagine a loving relationship that you have had with a significant other, a parent or child or even a favorite pet.
Think about your throat chakra and imagine the best conversation that you had with someone where you were able to communicate your thoughts and feelings openly and honestly.
Think about your third eye chakra and use it to imagine and visualize the ability that you have to be intuitive in your daily life and dealings with others.
Think about your crown chakra and think about your spirituality and your relationship with a higher power and how you can connect with the infinite-ness at any time.
