7 Chakras Opening and Awakening Guide (Chakra Activation Guide)
The 7 chakras can be activated (awakened) through the process of your life by doing things that are meaningful to you. Each chakra is a higher frequency than the last and requires less time to awaken and open that chakra.
This is a process that takes 20-27 years to do.
Some are meant to be awakened as they are sleeping. Some have to be opened, and the third eye chakra must be awakened and opened.
The ones that must be awakened are chakra half steps in chakra nature. Check out our Chakra half step article to learn more.
Opening your chakras is the standard technique, but some chakras must be awakened to progress further. Meditation is a great thing to help open your chakras and awaken them.
Awakening the solar plexus chakra is where some people can get stuck. In the article chakra half step, you will see which chakras are sleeping and need to be awakened. The rest of the chakras need to be opened, which happens naturally.
How to Open Root Chakra
The root chakra requires the most time and awakens naturally by going through one’s childhood and being born on Earth.
As you progress to higher chakras, you might need to balance this chakra as it is easy to focus on the higher chakras. You can find how to do this on Root Chakra Balancing and Healing.
After spending some time on the root chakra, which focuses on survival, you will naturally go on to your sacral chakra. This chakra is a 100% chance of awakening as long as you have lived your life.
How to Open Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra can be opened by using creativity and getting hope while going through your teenage years as a life process. Creativity is key to opening this chakra. Doing creative things will help you open the sacral chakra, and it will bring you hope. This chakra should open naturally for you as you progress through life and lead you to the solar plexus chakra stage.
You will know when this chakra is opening when your creativity and interests are naturally growing.
Likely, you have already opened this chakra in your early teenage years.

How to Open Solar Plexus Chakra
The solar plexus chakra is one that needs to be awakened to progress further in your spirituality.
This one is associated with power and freedom as to when you go through this chakra, you experience freedom to do what you want, unlike earlier chakras.
Many people fail to awaken the solar plexus chakra as they are not aware that there is more to life to experience. That is not a bad thing as you will find that people must awaken on their own.
For many people, awakening the solar plexus chakra causes a spiritual awakening. If you have had a spiritual awakening or are seeking answers to your spirituality, then you may have awakened the solar plexus chakra.

The heart chakra is a chakra that needs to be opened after awakening the solar plexus chakra. Becoming aware that there is more to life than the physical reality you see.

The key here is love. Love to live and appreciate everything, and you will find this opens naturally.

This chakra is special in that it needs to be awakened and can also be opened too. I’m sure you have heard of opening your third eye chakra before.

As far as opening the third eye chakra goes, there are many different techniques. Still, my favorite is hz meditation on youtube. I’ve included a video that I use that can help you open your third eye chakra. Focus and use your eyes to open this chakra.
