A Reiki Chakra meditation for you

reiki chakra meditation

All a bit New Age?

Working with the chakras has ended up being taught quite commonly on Reiki courses, mainly because Reiki spent a long time travelling with the New Age movement and picked up various New Age ideas like working with chakras, and Angels, and Spirit guides and the like.

There’s nothing wrong with working with these ideas or principles, of course.

But they’re not anything to do with Reiki, so these things wouldn’t have been part of the original system that Mikao Usui taught, or even the system that Dr Hayashi passed on to Mrs Takata, or even what Mrs Takata taught.

They’re not really anything to do with Reiki but they end up being bundled with it.

And for that reason, we don’t really focus on chakras at Reiki Evolution: we focus on the Tanden (Dantien in Chinese), an energy centre in the abdomen, the centre of your personal Universe, the place where your creativity and intuition reside.

But let’s do something with chakras anyway!

In any case, lots of Reiki people do chakra meditations and like chakra meditations so I thought I would be fun to put together a guided meditation for you, but with a bit of a “Reiki Evolution twist” to it.

You can find it below and I hope you like it.

      1. While the meditation is gorgeous Taggart I feel I must correct your assumption that there is anything New Age about the Chakra system. This is a system of energy healing from the ancient Tantric yoga texts, and as such is a lifelong journey of depth and substance. if you wish to delve further, I recommend “Eastern Body, Western Mind” Psychology of the Chakra System as a Path to the Self, by Anodea Judith.

        1. Oh, yes, I realise that, Elizabeth. I realise that the chakra system is an ancient, ancient concept. What I am saying is that an interest in working with chakras exploded in the New Age movement, and because Reiki travelled in the New Age movement for many years, chakras are taught on many Reiki courses, although they were not part of Mikao Usui’s original system.

  1. This is just so . . . words fail me, and that is the point I suppose – feel the benefit, and I did/do. I shall enjoy this again.
    Thank you very much

    1. That’s great. Why not take a little time each day to do this meditation, and see how you feel in a month!

  2. So relaxing! Felt the tension I’ve been carrying on my back dissolve & slip away. Really nice, thank you!

    1. Excellent. Why not work with this meditation over a number of days and see what difference it makes to you. πŸ™‚

  3. That was extremely relaxing. Thank you. I felt myself merging into your voice and each chakra spinning feely. I also noticed that my body hearted up and a “thickness” in the tissue around my mouth and nose…it’s still kind of tingling as I write this. Very nice!

  4. Great to listen to your soothing voice once again. I had just completed a long walk and this was just what I needed to relax me. Shoulders balanced first, then my sacral and root chakras responded, and also my ‘foot chakra’ (my feet felt a little tender after my walk). Great – I am ready for my next walk now!! (smile)

    Thanks Taggart X X X

  5. Thank you Taggart, so lovely and relaxing, felt the beautiful energy flowing from my crown through my chakra and needing energy in my solar plexus, wonderful ? xxxx

  6. Thank you Taggart,this was very special to me.
    Total beautiful relaxation stillness and balance.


      1. Another fantastic chakra session Taggart. Now for the empowerment,I love my “Taggart Mondays”
        Thank you

  7. This was a beautiful relaxing meditation.. your meditations are always a very calming yet very healing meditation. Thank you for this experience. Much peace and resection. Angel Blessings

  8. Good morning Taggart…how ‘timely’ this meditation was for me. I have been suffering the past couple of days from a virus which has totally floored me! Giving your meditation a try out was the very best thing for me. Too much to write here about my experience but suffice to say that it definitely ‘hit the spot’ with me! The energy completely enveloped my Throat Chakra and along with your soothing voice, it has taken away the ‘fire’ that I have had in my throat from all the coughing. I feel that the energy is wrapped around that area now …it’s wonderful! Are you going to be offering this meditation to us now on the website for download? πŸ˜€

  9. Hi Everyone,

    The Reiki just started to flow just by looking at the chart, amazing. Thanks for this.

    I do the Reiki with turning on the Gaytri Mantra on You tube and the channeling is extra strong.
    Perhaps people can try with differnt “special” music to boost their Reiki.

    All the best.

  10. Another wonderful meditation from you Taggart! The relaxation and force of energy through each chakra was amazing! I will certainly be using this meditation regularly……thank you ! πŸ™‚

  11. That was absolutely wonderful, I felt totally calm, relaxed and at total peace, what a powerful experience, thank you so much ?

  12. Thanks for that meditation session. It was very strengthening and relaxing. The energy concentrated itself quickly where it was most needed. Frances

    1. That’s great. I’m glad it was a good experience for you. Why not re-visit the exercise regularly and see where that takes you?

  13. As ever this meditation was simple and effect. I’ve tried the Doreen Virtue chakra balancing meditations and yours is far more straightforward. I don’t often carry out the practice myself but occasionally if I feel “out of balance” I will attempt to address it. I certainly felt more at ease after your meditation, Vince.

    1. Hi Vince, I’m glad you found the meditation straightforward. I like to keeps things simple, and stuff doesn’t have to be complex to be effective, does it? πŸ™‚

  14. Ohhhh that was soooo relaxing ….you have such the perfect voice for these meditations Taggart ….I only have an iPad and there seems to be no way to download or save this unless anyone knows a different way …but thank you anyway I will just have to keep the page link for every day …

    1. I have just sent a download to your e-mail address, Val. Look for something from ‘mailbigfile’. x

      1. Thanks Taggart, unfortunately it still doesn’t work on iPads … if I click download it still just plays the file and the only save option is to save image …no image anyway

        1. I have to say that Apple do not make it easy for their customers to do things that other computer users take for granted. Here are some helpful links:


          Also, here:


          1. No, Apple don’t make it easy ….but they do make it safe ?
            No probs I will just keep coming back to this page when I want to play it ? ??

  15. This was a really relaxing meditation πŸ™‚ . I noticed a concentration of energy in the top part of my forehead (at my hair line), which spread further down into my forehead. I also saw a balls of violet light with a purple centre. These got bigger.
    Towards the end of the meditation, when I was sending energy to all my chakras, I felt a ‘whirring’ sensation in my back.

    I am looking forward to doing this again tomorrow and seeing what happens. Thank you Taggart πŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad you had a relaxing time, Dulcie, and it’ll be interesting to see how your experience changes (or stays the same) tomorrow x

  16. Another lovely meditation. Your voice is so very gentle and calming Taggart. this time instantly became aware of my throat chakra. (have a long term catarrh challenge.)
    Can’t believe its 15 years since I bought my 1st CD and your manuals. I listen to you most days on Spotify and refer you often to others even if they are not Reiki trained. Thank you.

    1. I’m glad you’re finding this helpful, Kay, and that my meditations are part of your routine πŸ™‚

  17. Thank you Taggart. Another lovely and very relaxing meditation. I felt the energy in my navel, and on this very hot day managed to relax and forget the heat.

    1. That’s great. I’m glad it was a nice experience for you, Christine. πŸ™‚

  18. A truly wonderful meditation. Deeply relaxing. Thank you for this Taggart. Just what I need at the moment. Something that makes me feel nurtured and held. Lost a dearly loved friend two months ago. So this meditation is helpful to me.

        1. These are only available as downloadable MP3s, which will play on any mobile phone, tablet, iPad, laptop or PC.

  19. I really love this meditation, Thank you for publishing this. Is it possible to download it?
    Many thanks Melanie Tillman

    1. I am glad you like it, Melanie. I have just sent you the MP3 via Mailbigfile; keep an eye on your inbox (or spam folder) for it πŸ™‚

  20. Thanks…..nice flow and simple awareness…….
    A nice change from deeper longer chakra meditations that I usually try to do

  21. Not a bit “new age” Taggart. As a long time yoga practitioner and teacher I can attest to the fact that working with these energy centres can be highly facilitative, and bring about positive changes both physically, emotionally and mentally. Great article and practice….many thanks for your work.

    1. Hi Elizabeth, within the context of Reiki, chakras are a New Age addition, since Reiki travelled for many years in the New Age movement, and ended up including chakras, Angels and spirit guides as supposedly part of a Reiki practice. I have no problem with chakra work per se and I am sure that it is greatly beneficial, but it isn’t Reiki.

  22. Extremely relaxing, but not long enough. Would have been amazing if it could have lasted another 10 mins.

  23. Thankyou for these medidations,i really enjoy doing them,im looking forward to trying the othersx

  24. Oh wow! I have just completed the Reiki Chakra meditation and I feel so relaxed, balanced and calm. This meditation couldn’t have arrived on a better day for me – amongst other things happening I was practising Hatsurei while awaiting a puncture repair on my car after a busy morning seeing patients. I feel like my soul has stilled thanks to this comforting meditation, led by the wonderful Taggart. I have never done chakra meditation before but will return to it regularly as part of my daily practise following completing my reiki 2. Thank you Taggart for making this available -and for free!- and for it finding me today when I needed it most – just like reiki!

    1. Dear Jennifer, I’m so pleased to hear that this came at just the right time for you and that your “soul has stilled”; that’s lovely feedback! πŸ™‚

  25. Dear Mr Taggart King,

    I love this meditation very much!
    It is so calming, soothing and gentle – the content itself, your voice, as well as the background sounds.
    The interesting thing is that it produced the time distortion! Those 12 and something minutes felt just like a minute or two! Incredible! πŸ™‚
    Thank you so much!

    With Reiki,

    1. Dear Maja, I’m so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the track and that it made a difference to you.

  26. I love your meditations and haven’t done any for a while so I decided to do this one as I always start my reiki treatments by clearing my clients chakras. For me, this was a wonderful meditation and I felt an immediate benefit- thank you so much for creating and sharing this ?

    1. Hi Stevie, I am pleased you liked the track and that it made a difference to you.

    1. Dear Paula, I was so pleased to hear that you liked this track and got something beneficial out of it. πŸ™‚

  27. A very enjoyable meditation which I felt strongly in my root chakra. The images that came to mind were from a key point in my life when knowing about chakras and Reiki would have been extremely beneficial to my well-being. As would meditation. I think the sensation in my root chakra and images that came to mind are hinting at something in the here and now for me, and I am mindful of that. As I go through my Reiki master teacher course I am increasingly aware of the importance of connectedness – with self and others.

    1. Hi Elaine, I was pleased to hear that you enjoyed the meditation and that it did something special for you. πŸ˜‰
