Balancing Manipura Chakra Energy: Healing Through the Five Senses

Mudra & Mantras

Close your eyes and begin to chant the mantra “OM RAM” for 3 minutes. First out loud for a few rounds, then silently to yourself. While chanting, I would like you to visualize a bright yellow energy penetrating your solar plexus from the front and back of your being. This beautiful yellow light is cleansing and energizing your Manipura chakra into the glowing sunshine bright yellow chakra it is. Also, keep in mind any sensations, colors, pictures or words you might experience, these are all messages from the divine.

If you would like to add some healing sound to your meditation, I have provided some healing solar plexus chakra E-tone quartz crystal sound bowl frequencies in my youtube video below. Enjoy!
