The art of chakra healing has been used for centuries to balance the important energy centers in our body - the chakras. We can use a number of different tools such as stones, reiki healing or meditation during chakra balancing. The end result will be a physically healthier body and a happier, more peaceful you.
We each have seven primary chakras that correspond with vital areas of our bodies and emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives. The seven chakras form a line from the base of your spine to the top of your head. Chakras have their own color, vibrational frequency, and symbol. For example, the first chakra is found at the base of the spine and is known as the root chakra. This chakra governs the spinal column, kidneys, legs, feet, rectum, and immune system. So, when this chakra is out of balance, it may lead to lower back pain, varicose veins, leg cramps, rectal conditions, depression, as well as immune related disorders. A lack of balance in the root chakra may be caused by feelings of low self esteem, insecurity, or family concerns.
Other chakras include the sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow, and crown chakras. Each energy center must be vibrating at the proper frequency independent of one another in order for the entire body to vibrate in harmony. Therefore, each chakra is equally important to optimal functioning of the body according to the chakra healing tradition.
Many powerful tools can affect the vibration of the chakra, and that's where chakra balancing comes into play. Chakra stones, reiki healing, the human voice, music, binaural beats, sound healing, chants, mantras and chakra meditations bring the frequency of the chakras back into proper vibrational alignment. For example, the root chakra is greatly affected by the hematite, onyx, ruby or garnet gemstones. During chakra healing a practitioner may use one or all of these chakra stones to cleanse your root chakra and bring it into harmony.
Chakra meditation may also be used to open up your chakra centers and improve the flow of positive psychic energy in your body. During meditation you simply concentrate on each of the chakras, starting with the first one (root chakra) and working your way up to your crown chakra. Think of the image of the buddha sitting in the lotus position. Staring at the bottom and working the energy all the way up through each of the energy centres. By imagining the flow of energy from chakra to chakra, you are helping to remove blockages in each energy center that might be causing pain and disease.
I find it particularly helpful to begin by seeing roots coming from the soles of your feet and pushing down into the earth. If you are sitting in the lotus position, you may want to begin by seeing the roots coming from the root chakra/ groin area and pushing down into the earth. As you see the roots growing deep down into the ground anchoring you Mother Earth, visualise the roots getting stronger and deeper until you see a big ball of energy at the centre. Wrap your roots around the Earths centre and pull the energy up with your roots and all the way up through each of the chakras in the body. You can pull them all the way up to the crown.
When you reach the crown, see it open as a big beautiful lotus flower. When you feel it is opening up, start to visualise a white pillar of light coming down through the crown and into each of the chakras transmuting the energy down and out the feet, to the Earth. Another helpful addition is to see gold liquid flowing down with the white pillar. Let the gold liquid fill up each part of the body, taking all negative energy with it, to be transmuted out through the feet for the Mother to cleanse it and take it away from you. This can be a really great exercise to practice for a few minutes every day to see changes in yourself and your energetic health.
Because the chakras govern every organ and system in your body, chakra healing has far reaching health implications. Chakra balancing can lead to improved heart, lung, brain, immune and digestive function and may also help with depression, anxiety, and other emotional imbalances. Many believe that the chakras have the power to transform your life both physically and spiritually. It is only when our chakras are in sync that we can truly access higher levels of consciousness.
If the powerful art of chakra healing sounds intriguing to you, visit an experienced chakra healer. Make sure to ask plenty of questions and provide information for your healer in order to pinpoint which of your chakras are the most blocked or unbalanced. From there he or she may employ any number of tools to help lead your energy centers into harmonious vibration.
