Meditation of the Month: Chakra Massage

A chakra massage will bring a natural balance to the Yin and Yang principles of the chakras and help to open up any restricted areas. You can do this with a lover as a prelude to love-making, or with a friend to help open and balance energy flow. The man receives first.

How to practise this meditation:

1. The person giving takes a few drops of oil on their fingers and slowly, rhythmically, in a clockwise direction, applies the oil to the first chakra, on the pubic bone, at the hair line. Do this for about 2-3 minutes. Then rest a relaxed hand on this area and be present for a few moments.
2. Move to the second chakra, halfway between the navel and the pubic hairline and repeat the slow, rhythmic massage and still hand.
3. Do the same for the third chakra, halfway between the end of the sternum and the navel.
4. Do the same for the fourth chakra, in the middle of the chest between the nipples.
5. Move onto the fifth chakra, below the Adam’s apple. Use a light and sensitive touch here, especially on men, and rest your hand very gently.
6. Move onto the sixth chakra, but here use a different kind of touch. Instead of clockwise circles, lightly stroke upwards between the eyebrows to the hairline.
7. Finally, the seventh chakra, at the top of the head, between the ears and again use a slow, clockwise motion and finally bring your hand to rest for a few moments.
8. Ask your partner if there is one chakra that needs more attention. Place a hand underneath that chakra at the back and one hand on the front, cradling it. Ask them to breathe into both your hands simultaneously. Make sure you are comfortable so your hands can remain relaxed. Ask your partner to let you know when that chakra feels open.
9. When it is open, ask your partner if that chakra has a healing message for them and to speak it out loud.Then ask how this message will be brought into daily life.
10. When the chakra has given its message, slowly remove your hands from the chakra and stroke your partner’s whole body, affirming the healing message, using your partner’s exact words.
11. Once you have covered the whole body, bring your hands into your partner’s aura, just above the body, and again speak the healing message into the whole aura.
12. To complete, place the middle finger of your right hand on the base of the first chakra, just under the testicles on a man or on the perineum of the woman. Place the middle finger of the left hand on the crown chakra. This will balance heaven and earth. Close your eyes and be present with the energy as it shifts into balance. When this is complete, slowly remove your hands, leaving your partner in his own space for a few moments.
13. Do the exchange.

You can use a special male and female oil blend to help enhance the experience. Use a few drops of essential oil in a carrier oil such as almond. For women, a possible mix is Rose, Neroli and Jasmine. For men, you could try Lemon, Cedar and Sandlewood.

If you do this meditation with a lover, while you are making love after the massage, you can re-affirm your partner’s healing message occasionally, to deepen the healing.
