Our seven main energy centers, known as the chakra, have specific locations in the body (along the spine) as well as specific sound, color, and elemental associations. Working with the specific sound of each chakra – seed mantra, also called a “bija” – helps us put that chakra in the right energy mindset, the right resonance, thus healing each chakra from the inside out. Each seed mantra offers us the human sound that corresponds with each chakra.
You want to go into meditation and repeat each seed sound as long as you can, rhythmically and with positive intention. You can also find videos that do this for you – just lie down, enjoy the sounds, and let the sounds do the healing work for you. Here’s everything you need to know about each chakra and the sounds that heal it.
