It is a powerful technique to resonate and balance your chakras using the chakra vowel sounds. It is recommended that chanting the vowel sounds should be practiced in a comfortable posture sitting in a chair or on the floor. Keep your spine as straight as possible, allowing the energy to flow in your body more freely. This is a great daily exercise exploring the harmonics presented in the vowels. Make these sounds in a gentle voice not straining while focusing your energy and intent on balancing each chakra. Don’t worry about the pitch or note, just let your voice resonate with your body. This pitch will change according to your mood, diet, activities, etc. on a daily basis. There is no set frequency.
Start by breathing in deeply, expanding your lower stomach as you inhale. Focus your awareness on each of the chakras as you are working on them. You may wish to add color visualization with each chakra. Start with the Root Chakra (Red) - Sound OO or UUH, as in ‘cup’; Sacral Chakra (Orange) – Sound OH or OOO, as in ‘you’; Solar Plexus Chakra (Yellow) -Sound AW or OH, as in ‘go’; Heart Chakra (Green) -Sound AH, as in ‘ma’; Throat Chakra (Blue) – Sound IH OR EYE, as in ‘my’; Brow or Third Eye Chakra (Indigo) – Sound IH or AYE, as in ‘say’; and Crown Chakra (Violet or White) – Sound EE or EEE, as in ‘me’. Please note that for most of the Chakras I have included several ways their sounds our listed ie: the Root Chakra illustration shows Sound OO many places it will be shown as UUH.
