What is Chakra Healing?
Keeping the physical body alive, solid, and working great is a complex exercise in balancing.
It’s called homeostasis, and it keeps every chemical, hormone, and procedure of your body in agreement with each other.
In the event that your body strays from this state of homeostasis, you will be stuck in an unfortunate and uncomfortable situation.
Similarly, you must balance your chakras and line them up with each other, as well.
When your chakras, or any part of energy framework, become out of balance, they can profoundly affect your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
When they are out of balance, both your body and your life are going to be out of balance, too.
You may find that you are sickness or accident-prone, or that your life is miserable, uninspiring, or chaotic.
The human body can be compared to a melodic ensemble, where the individual players symbolize the physical and energetic organs of the body.
In the event that one “instrument” (like a chakra) gets out of tune or off rhythm, the sound of the whole ensemble (the strength of your whole body) also becomes off.
Soon, alternate players (other pieces of your physical or energetic framework) begin to veer off tune, as well.
Energy moves through the chakra framework in two ways. First, it runs up and down your main channel, which is from the base of the spine to the top of the head, linking the chakras.
Second, it runs horizontally, in a transfer of energies with the universe.
In a balanced chakra framework:
Energy runs unreservedly in a vertical manner, reaching all the chakras: none of the chakras are closed off or blocked.
Energy flows freely in a horizontal direction and the chakras exchange energies with the universe freely.
No chakra is more open, or spinning slower or faster than others. There’s also no chakra that’s underactive or overactive.
Each of the chakras is opened to the degree expected to help your wellbeing and give significant improvement to your spirit. None of the chakras are open too wide or shut down too tight, either.
Neither the upper chakras nor the lower chakras are over-emphasized.
A lot of energy healers are able to see your chakras and know whether they are aligned, open, and sound.
But it’s not necessary to have the capacity to see them so you can assess their condition, state, and balance.
Because when there’s a chakra imbalance, it will eventually show in your body, feelings, musings, or in your life in general.
Eventually, it will show up very obviously in your physical world.
A healthy chakra will manifest in your physical body, and you can tell right away if someone has a balanced chakra.
Your body is sufficiently solid and stable to help you with your spiritual journey and to discover your satisfaction in life and fulfillment of your life purpose.
You are very much grounded, secure, at ease, and in touch with your own body.
You are in touch with your own feelings. However, they don’t overpower you.
You are also okay with your own sexuality. And you are confident and able to express your wants and desires without commanding others.
You are loving, compassionate, and kind. And you also have loving and healthy relationships, and you are very connected with nature.
You are also ready to express your truth, to tune in when others speak, to create, and to share.
Your intellect is well-adjusted with your wisdom, and you are in touch with your intuition. You also have a powerful connection with the divine.
However, it’s not necessary for you to have perfectly balanced chakras, all at the same level of responsiveness and awakening.
For most people, one or more chakras are stronger than others. This is perfectly normal and not a problem at all.
It’s just not mandatory that all your chakras were not wildly out of balance, such as one chakra nearly shut off or one wide open compared to others.
Your body has a way of giving you the information that you need to tell whether your chakras need balancing or not.
Sometimes, people who are on their journey to spiritual development will amplify or dramatize the top chakras, believing that they are their way to becoming enlightened.
However, one must remember that the body is not inferior or less holy than the spirit.
They are both important aspects of energy, and they need to remain in balance so that you can make the most of your physical incarnation.
Someone who has a heavier upper chakra system, which means the top chakras are overactive compared to the bottom chakras, may often find themselves being spaced out or feeling ungrounded.
They may also have difficulties when it comes to finishing things or concentrating on tasks.
They may also lack common sense and be out of touch with people or with the world. Generally, it’s just an overall difficulty living in this world.
On the contrary, people who have out of balance lower chakras may lack creativity and imagination. They may also lack vision, higher reasoning power, ambition, and higher dreams.
They often feel disconnected with the divine. And they may also be overly sexual, plodding, blunt, and overbearing.
They usually feel that they’re trapped in the drama or minutiae of life. And they have a hard time rising above its basic physicality.
Why heal the chakras?
Maintaining the health of your chakras makes a huge contribution to your overall physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.
If there are overactive or underactive chakras, this can result in illness, pains, discomforts, or other symptoms that prevent the body from functioning fully.
When things in your life are out of sync, your chakras will manifest these imbalances in the form of energies.
You can help open or realign your chakras by doing chakra meditations.
There are many chakra meditation tutorials that you can find online, so just choose whichever one feels most natural and right for you.
You can also wear the corresponding colors of your affected chakras. All the seven chakras radiate a different color and resonate and react to that color’s specific vibrations.
Red is for the root chakra, while orange is for the sacral chakra. Yellow is for the solar plexus chakra, and green or pink for the heart chakra.
Blue is for the throat chakra, while it’s purple or indigo for the third eye chakra. For the crown chakra, it’s usually white or purple.
You can also make it a habit to start your day with positive affirmations. These affirmations can be in the form of writing, spoken word, or thought.
You can heal the chakras using sound.
Listen to uplifting music while using tuning forks. If you can get your hands on them, you can also make use of Tibetan singing bowls.
Listen to a song, sound, or tone that has the same frequency as that of the affected chakra. Usually, the root chakra vibrates with the note of C, while the sacral chakra resonates with the note D.
The solar plexus chakra vibrates with the note E, the heart chakra with the note E, and the throat chakra with the note F.
The third eye chakra resonates with the note A, and the crown chakra vibrates with the note B.
Another healing method that you can do for chakra healing is the use of chakra healing gemstones. You can carry gemstones of the same chakra color that you are trying to heal, open, or unblock.
They carry strong and positive vibrations that radiate healing frequencies which your chakras pick up on.
You can also seek energy healing or alternative healing practices like acupuncture, reflexology, healing touch, quantum healing, or reiki.
Or you can burn white sage or light incense while focusing on the chakras that you want to clear or cleanse.
You can eat a healthy diet and sweat away from the negative energies blocking off the chakras through exercise.
Yoga is also a good method that will align, center, and regain the balance in your underactive or overactive chakras.
Also, don’t forget to be grateful. It’s an instant vibration tune-up that will positively influence the current state of your chakras.
When you start working on healing your chakras, you will also start seeing the positive results happen in your life.
Like attracts like. If you cleanse, clear, and unblock your chakras, you will also subsequently elevate your frequencies, which will then attract the same level of frequencies.
Good things will start to happen almost immediately. It’s your right and your responsibility to have a life that’s filled with happiness, abundance, peace, and joy.
The sooner you address the problems in your chakras, the sooner you will make this kind of life happen!
Ways To Heal The Seven Chakras
The Root Chakra
This chakra resonates with the color red. It’s the first chakra in the chakra system and can be found at the base of your spine.
When the root chakra becomes underactive, you will feel like you don’t belong. You will feel lost and out of place.
Even if you’re in a relationship or have plenty of friends, you will feel like you are alone, abandoned, or not supported in your relationships.
You often have problems and difficulties in your personal life. Particularly with your family. You also often have money problems or financial struggles. You have very little to no connection with the earth.
If you want to heal or balance your root chakra, wear a lot of red. Wear red lipstick, red outfits, red jewelry, particularly root chakra stones, and red accessories. Try wearing some Red Jaspers or Garnets.
You can also decorate your space at home or at work with red furniture, décor, or wallpaper and paint.
When this color surrounds you, you cannot help but visualize this color filling up your root chakra and removing all the blockages.
You can also heal your root chakra by simply spending time outside and communing with nature. Breathe the fresh air, feel the ground on your feet, and bask in the sun on your face.
When you have the chance, take off your shoes and feel the blades of grass on your feet. Enjoy the strength of the pavement as you walk.
Imagine roots like those of a tree growing out of your feet and digging their way deep into the earth. Absorb the energy from your roots, very much like how a tree or a plant absorbs nutrients from the soil.
Stomp your feet on the ground, jump around, and feel the energy coursing from the earth up to your body, and vice versa.
Meditate on the root chakra symbol. This chakra focuses on being grounded and staying connected to the earth.
You are an energetic and electric being, and you need to send your grounding energies down to the earth regularly.
When you’re not grounded, you experience emotional challenges, and your energies just blow up, much like a structure that has no grounding device when it gets hit by lightning.
The Sacral Chakra
Orange is the color of the sacral chakra. You can find it just below the navel.
The sacral chakra’s energy governs how you act on your creativity and sexuality, and how you experience your intimate relationships.
When this chakra is closed, you will feel that you cannot get cozy or comfortable with anybody. You will have issues with imagination, and you will suffer from practically zero sex drive.
You may have the desire to self-destruct and willingly participate in abusive situations and harsh circumstances.
At the point when this chakra is open and aligned, every aspect of your life will flourish. You will encounter lovely and personal connections.
Also, you will communicate sexually. You will feel great expressing your sexuality. And you will have a healthy appetite for creative pursuits. You will feel settled in your body.
If you want to heal this particular chakra, start wearing plenty of orange. Wear orange outfits and accessories, including orange-colored gemstones, such as Orange Kyanite, Orange Calcite, and Sunstone.
Decorate your space with orange, and hang out at places where there’s plenty of orange color.
Also eat lots of oranges! Cut the orange fruit and smell its fresh and citrusy scent. This fruit’s citrusy smell resonates with your sexuality. Which is also why it’s called the bearing fruit
Breathe deep into your stomach and meditate on the sacral chakra symbol.
The Solar Plexus Chakra
Yellow is the color of the solar plexus chakra. You can find it right below the sternum.
This is your energy focus, also alluded to as your “own sun”. When people say that that you light up the room, it’s a sign that you have a solid solar plexus chakra.
When you use your personal energies properly, you exude tranquility and generosity. It’s a power that can change the world and make it a better place.
Sadly, people abuse their personal power and use it in undesirable ways. This can be damaging for yourself and everybody around you.
When the sacral chakra becomes underactive, you are very easily manipulated or controlled. And you have considerable difficulties stating what you need. You have very little confidence, and you have self-esteem issues as well.
If you want to heal your solar plexus chakra, wear yellow. Carry yellow solar plexus chakra healing stones like Amber, Topaz, and Citrine.
Sit under the sun, and let the sunlight seep into this chakra. Visualize it dissolving the undesirables.
Meditate on the solar plexus chakra and tell yourself that you are powerful, and that you use your power in positive and healthy ways!
The Heart Chakra
The heart chakra’s colors can be green or pink. This chakra is the energy center and you can find it in the center of your chest.
Some people consider this chakra the seat of the soul. It’s very powerful and provides many benefits in healing yourself and other people.
However, there are many challenges with this chakra because people keep it guarded to protect and preserve themselves.
When you get your heart broken, or when you suffer a loss, there’s a good chance that your heart chakra is weak and underactive.
If you want to heal the heart chakra, wear lots of green and pink. Choose green or pink outfits, whether there’s a special occasion or not.
Wear green or pink accessories, put on pink lipstick or pink blush, and wear green or pink heart chakra stones. Mix and match Peridot, Green Aventurine, Pink Quartz, or Jade.
Whenever you look in the mirror, say I love you to your reflection. Learn to forgive yourself. Forgive people who have hurt you or caused you pain.
Forgiving someone will release you from the negative hold that your pain or anger has on you.
If you don’t want a confrontation, write your thoughts and feelings down and burn that piece of paper. Doing so will transmute the negative energy.
If you know someone who has a baby or young child, pay them a visit. Hold this child and really connect. They have very powerful heart chakra energy that will soothe your heart chakra.
Keep calm and meditate on the heart chakra symbol while telling yourself that you are love, that you are loved, and that you are open to giving and embracing love.
The Throat Chakra
Blue is the color of the throat chakra. When the throat chakra is open and unblocked, you are very at ease in speaking your mind.
You don’t second-guess yourself. You know that your voice matters, and you don’t have difficulties demonstrating your creativity.
If you stutter or find yourself at a loss for words, this is a sign that your throat chakra is underactive.
If you suffer from sore throat all the time, or if you clear your throat every time you speak, it’s also a sign of underactivity in this chakra.
It’s your body’s way of telling you that it’s time to clear or cleanse this energy center.
If you don’t want to disrupt this chakra, don’t tell lies, gossip, or spread negative news because these things easily disrupt the throat chakra.
If you want to heal your throat chakra, wear blue.Wear blue clothing, and wear blue throat chakra gemstones as your everyday accessories, like Lapis Lazuli, Blue Kyanite, and Sodalite.
Sing your heart out whenever you have the chance, whether by yourself in the car or in front of a large crowd.
You can also take a public speaking class where they will teach you to modulate your voice and communicate effectively.
Don’t be afraid to engage in healthy and empowering self-talk.
Meditate on the throat chakra symbol and affirm to yourself that you speak the truth, that you speak and express yourself clearly, and that your voice matters.
The Third Eye Chakra
The color of the third eye chakra is indigo or purple. This chakra is your intuition.
You can find it right between your brows. It represents your psychic ability and your inner sight, but it battles with your knowledge and intellect.
The third eye chakra resonates with your sense of knowing and how you heed spiritual signs and guidance.
When this chakra is working as it should, you enjoy balance between your intuition and your intellect. You also learn to cleanse, balance, and trust your third eye.
Trust is an issue with the third eye chakra. People are naturally intuitive and psychic, but they disregard their intuition and listen more to what their intellect is telling them.
The third chakra is strong when your inner knowing is strong, and when your gut feeling is followed.
When this chakra is clear and balanced, you will experience clairvoyance, visions, and vivid and lucid dreams. You will have a strong inner knowing, and you will experience various out-of-body states.
You will begin to pick up on other people’s thoughts, intentions, energies, and emotions. Balancing and using this chakra to its fullest potential will definitely blow your mind!
When you want to heal the third eye chakra, wear more indigo or purple. Use this color in your environment, wear it every day in your outfits and accessories, and eat indigo or purple-colored foods.
Close your eyes and visualize yourself looking out of your third eye. Imagine a beam of light radiating out of your forehead and into the unknown.
Keep a piece of Amethyst under your pillow at night to experience lucid dreaming.
Trust in your gut feeling and don’t ignore it. Believe in the first thing that pops into your mind, and don’t doubt yourself.
Get rid of any fear, judgment, or stigma about the first thoughts that you have. If you want to, you can keep a journal with you at all times and jot down everything that crosses your mind.
Let your thoughts flow freely and keep doing it every day.
Meditate on the third eye symbol and remind yourself that your vision is clear, and that you are an intuitive and psychic being. Tell yourself that you can trust your intuition.
The Crown Chakra
The color of the crown chakra is purple or white. It’s the highest frequency chakra in your body, and it can be found at the top of your head.
The crown chakra is your connection to the divine, however, you may want to interpret it. It does not matter what things, people, or figures that come to your mind because there is no right or wrong answer.
When this chakra becomes blocked, it means that you don’t believe in a higher power, or that something divine created you.
You don’t feel the love and support. You find it hard receiving help from people, and the thought of what happens after people die depresses you or devastates you.
But when the crown chakra is strong and balanced, you vibrate at a higher frequency. You enjoy doing your everyday tasks because you feel light about everything.
You look forward to getting up in the morning. And you always do so with a wonderful feeling.
You are open to messages from the divine realm. Inspiration and synchronicity happens to your life on a daily basis.
When you want to heal the crown chakra, give yourself a good head massage.
While you do, picture a white light coming down from the sky right down to your crown chakra, all the way down to your root chakra, and down to the earth.
This is an example of a powerful meditation that will create a state of energetic vertical alignment that will balance your energies.
Wear indigo or white as often as possible, and always use crown chakra stones like Amethyst, Herkimer Diamond, and Clear Quartz.
Meditate on the crown chakra symbol while you affirm that you are connected with the divine, that you are experiencing your divine nature, and that you are blessed and one with the universe.
My Final Thoughts on Chakra Healing
Much like balancing the wheels of your car, balancing your chakras helps in improving and maintaining their optimum performance.
When the wheels are not aligned, they start to get wobbly and suffer undue stress, as well as wear and tear to your wheels and to your vehicle.
The performance of the car decreases, and so does the life of the wheels.
When your chakras get out of balance, they become either too open or too closed. They cannot manage the energies that they transmit effectively, and the body cannot receive them as effectively as well.
These chakra imbalances create more stress and affect how you interact with the world.
Chakras are rich and complex energy points that govern all aspects of your life. From your physical body to your self-esteem, to your creativity, to your relationships with the world.
They are not merely energy transmitters and receivers. They also digest and process all of your life experiences.
Your chakras bear past traumatic experiences and unspoken pain. Imbalances are the result of these painful or traumatic experiences and can become chronic conditions.
This means that the whole healing process will take quite a while.
It’s important to understand that you are constantly moving through your world, and that your life experiences affect you each day.
Chakra healing is not something that you do once and then that’s it. Just like eating, sleeping, or bathing, chakra healing is an important part of your everyday self-care routine.
You need to follow daily practices that will maintain your chakra health and discover skilled healers that will help you when it comes to deeper levels of chakra healing.
In the challenges of daily life, it’s hard to avoid hurtful emotions that suddenly overpower you out of the blue.
Maybe it’s a particular love song, or a scene from a movie, or accidentally revisiting a place, or bumping into a common friend.
This will spark off the painful memory, and the feelings can be just as intense as the moment they happened.
Without healing your chakras, these painful and negative emotions will keep appearing and holding you back from your true path.
Everyone has a life lesson to complete. And the experiences that are usually attached to them are often tough to manage that you just keep them until you are strong, brave, or mature enough to handle them.
Until that time comes, there will be a roadblock to your future and to your path to healing. .
A good energy healer will understand how to unblock, cleanse, and balance the chakras, dealing with the resulting release of emotions compassionately and with clarity.
Chakras may be sensed by a healer as a form of resistance in your aura near the main chakra points.
Directing soothing and healing energies to these areas, with the assistance of healing chakra stones, can gently release the pressure and blockages of negative energy, allowing the free flow of restorative energy to the chakras.
Each chakra has its color, and its brightness indicates the overall health of the physical body. A chakra healing treatment should always end with closing the chakras to a comfortable level.
By undergoing regular chakra healing and balancing, you are safeguarding the health of your physical body and your emotional well-being.
