Recently, I was in Tucson and I taught this Chakra clearing practice to the Tantra in Tucson Meetup group. It proved to be a powerful and healing experience for them. I hope you find it helpful.
Bija Mantra Chakra Clearing Practice
This is a sound technique that can remove blocks and activate the energy centers. Activating these energy centers allows ecstatic energy to flow into every part of the body. When ecstasy flows, it enhances every aspect of your life- sexual, spiritual, mundane, etc....
Create a quiet, beautiful space where you will not be disturbed. Turn off the phones. Read over the entire practice before you begin, so you both understand the practice.
How to Tone the Bija Mantras
The Bija Mantras are sacred sounds that resonate with each chakra. "Bija" means "seed." Each Bija Mantra is a specific sound that activates, clears and amplifies its particular chakra.
The first 5 seed sounds rhyme with the word "mom" :
1-"LAM" (Root Chakra)
2-"VAM" (Belly Chakra)
3-"RAM" (Solar Plexus Chakra)
4-"YAM" (Heart Chakra)
5-"HAM" (Throat Chakra)
The 6th seed sound rhymes with the word "home" :
6-"OM" (Third Eye Chakra)
7-Silence (Crown Chakra)
One way to remember the order of the Bija Mantras is with the acronym LoVeR, You Have Orgasms.
The order in which we do the practice is different for men and women. With a man, you begin at the root and move up to the crown because masculine energy is associated with the sky, consciousness, and emptiness. With a woman, you begin at the crown and move down to the root, because feminine energy is associated with the Earth, life and embodied bliss.
If you are doing this practice alone, place your hand over each successive chakra and say the appropriate mantra. As you tone, send the energy into each chakra with your hand and intention.
If you are doing this practice with a partner you will be toning the appropriate Bija Mantra into the associated chakra center. As you tone into each chakra, you will want to create a tube with your hands. Place your lips up against the opening of the tube you've created and make a seal. You will place the other end of the tube either against your partner's body or a few inches away (depending on your partner's boundaries.) As you tone through the tube, it allows the mantra to travel deeply into the body, clearing and activating the chakra. Practice a few times until you feel comfortable with the process.
I recommend toning into each chakra 3 times. After each chakra, wait 1-2 minutes for the receiver to fully integrate each sound. After completing all 7 chakras, put on some meditative music and sit or lie with the receiver, allowing them time to integrate this experience. Finally, take a few minutes to communicate your experience with each other. If partnered, this is the point where you would switch roles.
Toning on each Chakras, men root to crown, women crown to root.
