Chakra meditations for incubation
Humanity is currently in incubation, moving to it’s next stage of development. (For context, see: The Bearings.)
These chakra meditations are especially for this time of incubation. The act of visualizing an image for the particular chakra you want to rebalance, along with holding the mudra and breathing rhythmically, has a calming affect on the mind and body. This self-initiated action is extremely grounding. It helps you to reunite with our Earth Mother and access more of Her energy in a beneficial way for your own development.
The symbols, represent the geometry of each chakra – the chakra in a pure energy form, free of any emotional or intellectual connotations. The act of breathing in and out (through mouth or nose, it doesn’t matter which) while visualizing the image and holding the mudra, vibrates the chakras in the etheric body, opening them if they are closed and bringing them back into balance. This is a process that anyone can do on their own. (For a chakra opening and rebalancing process to do with a friend and using a pendulum as a biofeedback device, so you can see them in action, see: Grinding Gears and the Killer Chakra.)
I recommend working on each chakra in order from the root up to the heart chakra, staying with each one until you feel comfortable with it and feel ready to move on. Only a short meditation is needed, 5-10 minutes, everyday if possible.

We have two root chakra mudras we find effective, just go with the one that feels the most natural to you.

Sacral chakra mudras:
This mudra is gender specific; for women, the left hand (or non.dominant hand) cups the right (dominant hand) and for men the right hand (dominant hand) cups the left (non-dominant hand). Left-handers will have to experiment to see which feels the most natural/comfortable.

Brow chakra symbol:
I have not included a mudra for the brow chakra (third eye) as I don’t recommend meditating on the third eye at this point.
Crown chakra symbol:
I’ve not included a mudra for the crown chakra, as I’ve not yet encountered a situation in which anyone needed to meditate on the crown chakra. I’ve always found it to be open, always sending out to the cosmos.
