What is chakra healing? If there are blocks in the flow of your energy between the divine source, your intuition, and higher self, these disturbances can be rectified. We have many Chakras within our body, there are seven main chakras, which are in alignment starting from the base of the spine and ending at the top centre of the skull. The location of the Chakras in the physical body match up to certain glands and organs.
What is a Chakra? CHAKRA is a Sanskrit word meaning wheels, they connect to our psychic/etheric/auric bodies and they work with the physical, mental and emotional states of the body. These energy centers permit your intuition/sixth sense to be open so you can be more aware of yourself and your surroundings.
What is the function of a Chakra?
The balanced state of the Chakra spins naturally and has a flowing movement, it can be described as water flowing from the top of a mountain, meandering through the rivers and streams. If it malfunctions, a change of state in this flow, whether it is by reduction or complete blockage. If completely blocked it can cause an excessive or stagnant build up creating a negative redirected flow within the body. This redirection will flow, feed and accumulate negative messages to the physical body which in turn will start feeding negative messages to the mental body, leading to your emotions being imbalanced. You can see how the flow being blocked can cause a vicious negative cycle.
Chakra healing therefore is to locate and change the disturbances that stop your chakra/s flow of energy; mental, physical or emotional. Restoring balance, restoring you and your chakra, as well as providing advice to prevent re-occurrences.
Sometimes if this issue is not resolved at the core, the chakra can break down and symptoms can feel like attack. Therefore meaning more work needs to be done on your chakras and you.
Treating your Chakra imbalances
A Chakra healing session can be one or more of the following:
My advice about learning how to do chakra healing is to begin with getting to know your main energy centers. These chakras - act as an energy and communication bridge between your physical body and, your mental body, and your energetic body. In other words, they are bridges and energy transmitters between your physical, mental and energetic self.
When your chakras are closed or imbalanced this manifests on all levels - as mental / thinking / focus problems, emotional problems, and physical problems in the body. However, when you start to balance your chakras, information and energy is passed more freely between you and your higher self and these problems can be healed.
Each chakra has a different focus - for example your root chakra is at the bottom of your body and acts as a foundation, a balance, and also helps you to draw in energy. It is also your "manifestation chakra" and helps you to manifest and create your life your way. Your heart chakra allows you to communicate and love - to let out love and to receive it. If there are blockages here then they manifest as problems in your relationships.
Chakras are as inseparable to us as the heart and the physical lungs, and they have a massive impact upon the mind and body - in fact, it is amazing what can be done and achieved, the life you can manifest, the problems you can overcome when you activate your chakras and achieve balance.
I would encourage you to reconnect with your own chakras in your daily meditation practice. Start off by simply scanning your body for imbalances. Alternatively, and this is a good self-help exercise to practice, if you feel a very strong emotion, if you experience emotional pain, anger, grief, anxiety - try to locate this emotion within your body. What are you feeling? Where is this emotion? Are you upset and feeling it in your solar plexus? Don't fear to connect to it, so that you can heal. As you gradually seek more information and reconnect with your own body, you will see more and more how the mental and emotional imbalances are connected to the physical.
