Chakra Meditation: bottom-up or top-down



When doing a Chakra meditation, do you go from the bottom Base/Root Chakra up to the Crown? or from the Crown down to the Base/Root?


(If you don't know what a "Chakra" is either google it or click "Next Question Please"...please and thanks.)

  • Since you aren't a beginner, I think you could begin in the root for grounding, ascending while focusing and opening each chakra to the crown. Then descend closing each chakra.

  • Go from crown down. Actually, if you're "releasing" you should go all the way to the chakras in your feet and release through your feet. Everything I've ever seen, read or been told is that you always go from the top down.

  • I have always gone from the bottom up...grounding my self in the earth first, then cleansing and opening each chakra successively all the way up to the crown, then finally drawing energy in through the crown and back down.

  • Top down.. Start at the crown and work your way down.

  • Y'see, I'm writing a Crystal Chakra Meditation, and I can't decide if I want us to climb up a Crystal Mountain and then back down...or go spelunking down a Crystal Cave and back up again.


    Thoughts?

  • I always start at the top unless I feel drawn to another part.

  • I was always told open them from base to top and close them from top to base.

  • I start from the bottom and go up, to open. meditate on letting in + and when I feel filled with light, I close from top down, sending - out the bottom.
