Getting Your Chakras in Sync as a Couple
For two people in a romantic relationship, it is important that their chakras be in harmony. If this is not the case, it will cause tensions and problems between them. The chakras of the two genders tend to complement each other, fitting together nicely like puzzle pieces. So, if a chakra is inverted on the man, it tends to be outward-facing on the woman, and vice versa. The most obvious example of this is the chakra located in the groin area. Needless to say, this part of the body on a man sticks out, while this area of a woman is inverted like a valley.
In Tantra, it is considered very important for a couple to get their chakras in sync for a happy, harmonious union. People should also strive to achieve a positive energy state for their chakras, which will then supposedly attract their partner with a magnetic-like energy field.

Somraj Pokras is the founder of Tantra at Tahoe and the author of numerous e-books and online courses related to Tantra. He recommends this exercise — which he calls “Chakra Spooning” — to help synchronize your chakras with your partner's. This is also a great way to sustain your spiritual energies after lovemaking.
Lie down on something soft and comfortable.
Spoon. This means lying on your sides, one in front of the other, in a close embrace. (Most couples generally spoon with the same partner in front every time, but it can be fun to switch this up once in a while.)
The person in back places his or her hand on the other's first chakra.
The person in the inner position sets the breathing pattern by doing deep, slow belly breathing. The partner should follow this rhythm.
Together, both of you should visualize your breath drawing energy into your first chakras and swirling together. Imagine the energy releasing as you exhale.
Breathe into each chakra at least three times. If it seems like a particular chakra needs more attention, give it as many additional breaths as you feel necessary.
When ready, the inside person moves on to the second chakra, and the partner follows.
After breathing into the last chakra, lie together quietly and feel the energies in your bodies. Discuss your feelings and experiences with each other.
