An exercise for you to explore with Chakras:

Begin to relax for a few minutes and take a couple minutes to explore. Begin by imagining a soft glow of red at the base of your spine. Notice the quality of this color and its warmth. It is a bright, beautiful color glowing on your spine.

Next allow the color to expand and flow up into your body, through your arms, fingers, legs and toes.

Continue through the rest of your body and into head let rise and fall. This bright red ball of warmth.

Work on other colors such as orange for your pelvis and yellow for your solar plexus. Green in your heart and blue in your throat. Indigo in your brow and violet at the top of your head. Have white surround your whole being.

As you begin to work with colors, allow your breathing to slow as it moves the energy throughout your body. Merging your breathing with the colors. Exploring your feelings and noticing the differences in feelings, sensations and your attitude after this exercise.
