Opening Your Chakras

Opening Chakras

Opening the chakras can be done in several ways of various difficulties. Here’s are simple instruction explaining how to open your chakras in 3 steps:

  • Step 1: Know your chakras
  • Step 2: Identify the primary chakra or chakras you want to work at opening first
  • Step 3: Activate the energy in the chakra you want to open

There are numberous ways to open chakras, some are prescribed by traditional schools of thoughts associated with Eastern spirituality; some are more modern and are often derived from these more ancient practices. They were created by people interested today in psychology, healing, and holistic medicine with the purpose of helping us in our everyday lives. We will expose mostly contemporary ideas and techniques that you can easily apply on your own.

Opening Chakras Step 1: Know your Chakras

The first step to opening your chakras is to know them. These centers of energies have different qualities and characteristics that are useful to recognize in order to find a better balance overall. For instance, practices to open the root chakra will be different from the ones used to open the heart or third eye chakra.

Opening Chakras Step 2: Identify which chakra needs most help

The second step consists in identifying which chakra you want to work on first. The chakras are all connected. If one is imbalanced, whether it’s overactive and too open or deficient and “closed” or energy does not flow well through it, the neighboring chakras and the whole system may be affected as well. That’s why it might sometimes be difficult to pinpoint which chakra needs the most help.

Here are a few pointers:

  • Take the chakra test; it will help identify possible areas to focus on
  • Check whether you have a localized physical pain; it might be related to the activity of the chakra corresponding to that area
  • Look at what’s happening in your and what is most problematic or causes most concerns (e.g., a relationship, finances, feeling of safety, lack of motivation, emotional roller-coaster, etc.)
  • Have a person who’s energy conscious do a checkup

Opening Chakras Step 3: Activate the energy to open your chakra

The third step is to activate the energy in the chakra you want to open. It’s useful to think of it not just in terms of “opening” your chakra, but also restoring flow, increasing awareness of its state and variations, and balancing inflow and outflow of energy. The main principle at work when opening your chakras is the idea of balance or balancing.

To activate the energy in the chakras you want to open, you may practice the following:

  • Physical activity focused on the chakra’s location in the body
  • Breathing exercises
  • Meditation on a specific chakra
  • Introspection and self-inquiry to address the psychological and emotion components of the blockage
  • Self-healing hands-on techniques (e.g. massage, “chakra connection” technique)
  • Healing session to balance your chakras



When you start activating energy in a chakra that had an imbalance, “stuff” may come up. In other words, the “stuff” that was contributing to closing the chakra might come to your awareness, so you have a chance to deal with it more consciously. Be mindful of taking good care of yourself, with enough rest, moments of reflection and introspection, as well as physical activity to keep things moving.

Action item: Check which type of practice makes most sense or resonates with you: Is it a physical practice or meditative one? Can you make a little time to center yourself and reflect or do you prefer to schedule a one-hour healing session?

    Do i need to train all chakras at the same time?

    • Seb

      Absolutely not, but be very careful as opening them all at the same time as a beginner can be very overwhelming and might also be dangerous if you don’t know anything about the possible dangers it may impose. It’s actually very important to understand that working with chakras and energies is not simply equal to a childs play as some people may think.

      There was one day I decided to do just that, open them all up, which I think I did but I’m not too sure if I manged to (it’s even worse if I only managed to open a few) and then I went out for an excercise ride with my bike. What happened was that I all of a sudden felt very weird, almost like I kind of lost a bit of my control of my body, like I could unsteadily wobble out on the busy road, yet I choose to fulfill my excercise and everything went on OK, I even ended it without any bigger trouble.

      So the conclusion is that if you open up all your chakras without closing them down again when you’re finished with your session and you go out for a walk in the park, or perhaps even go shopping or whatsoever, anything that will mean you’ll have to be close to people around you, that might be very dangerous as you can easily be affected by energies that might harm you or in worst case even affect you in such a way you’ll do, say or even think things you normally don’t. It can affect you so much stronger in that state than it would do if your chakras were properlly closed.

      So my last advice is to do research, educate yourself well and never ever blindly believe just any site or any comment on the internet, as the internet is full of people who think they know things when they are sadly way too uneducated regarding the matter, and that can turn out to harm you aswell. Therefore professional mediums like James Van Praagh are perfect people to send an email to or whatsoever.

      I also need to add, that I think you can safely open 1 chakra at a time and work with that without having to worry about any negative outcomes, but just to be perfectly safe, in your shoes, I would definitely first ask a well-known professional regarding these matters!

      Hopefully it all works out just as it’s supposed to for you 🙂
