Opening the Chakras
If you don't want to go to a Reiki Master to get assistance with opening your chakras, there are some meditations (sometimes called Mudras) that you can try at home. They have special hand positions, and the power to send more energy to the ailing chakra. The sounds are chanted three to four times as you do a meditation for eight to ten breaths.
To open the Root chakra, the tips of your thumb and index finger should touch on both hands. Concentrate on the base of the spine. Chant the LAM sound.
To open the Sacral chakra, place your hands in your lap on top of each other with the palms up. The left hand should be under the right. The tips of the thumbs should be touching. Concentrating on the sacral bone in the back, chant the VAM sound.
