CHAKRA HEALING

A chakra is a center of subtle energy and part of our energy body, the energosoma. Throughout history, several philosophies, mystic traditions, religions and alternative medicine frameworks include the concept of chakras, and state that chakras are connected to overall health and to the evolution of the consciousness.

The word chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, disc, or circle. This is a reference to the shape of this subtle energy structure. Although the chakra is often depicted as a circle when drawn on a piece of paper, accounts of chakras seen through clairvoyance describe it as a cone with the tip close to the skin of a person.

Even though there are 100s of Chakras there are seven main ones that are typically dealt with when it comes to healing. The Chakras begin at the bottom area of your spinal cord at the point of the coccyx bone and then travel along up the spinal cord to the very top part of your head.

These are the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra.

The goal behind all spiritual practices is to reach a place of balance between spirit, body, earth and health, universality and grounding.

Below are a few fantastic techniques used to clean and heal the Chakras.

1) Chakra Meditation

It is recommended to approach healing from 2 directions when it comes to Chakra meditation:

Focusing on the level of cause

Unless the cause level has not been addressed, effects such as feeling distressed or upset inside the body, emotions and body will persist. For this reason Chakra meditation should involve any type of meditation that assists in bringing attention to yourself to a state of pure awareness.

Focusing on the levels of effects

The next meditation involves other variations of Chakra meditation used to ease the feelings or effects of being isolated and separated opposed to the Whole that we actually are. Some of these meditations include: The Well-Being Boat, Inner Vision Meditation and White Light Chakra Meditation.

2) Affirmations

One of the powerful tools used for Chakra healing are affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that have the function of strengthening and healing damaged part of ourselves. When working with affirmations, we are able to focus on various aspects, one at a time.

 

Here are some examples of affirmations for the various Chakras:

  1.  The Root Chakra – “I am filled with humility. I am enough as I am.”

  2. The Sacral Chakra – “I am radiant, beautiful and strong and enjoy a healthy and passionate life”

  3. The Solar Plexus – “I accept myself completely. I accept that I have strengths and I accept that I have weaknesses.”

  4.  The Heart Chakra – “Love is the answer to everything in life, and I give and receive love unconditionally”

  5. The Throat Chakra – “My thoughts are positive, and I always express myself truthfully and clearly”

  6. The Third Eye Chakra – “I am wise, and I understand the true meaning of life’s situations”

  7. The Crown Chakra –  “I am complete and one with the divine energy”

3) Balancing Through Massage

Massage is another common technique used for Chakra healing below is the massage methods used on each of the Chakras:

The Root Chakra

Massaging the gluteal muscles, legs and feet encourages energy flow better known as prana in this region.

The Sacral Chakra

Myofascial release for the hip flexors along with releasing the iliopsoas muscle helps to release tension in the hips. This helps them to open up for energy flow to the sacral Chakra.

The Solar Plexus

This area is massaged by applying oils to the abdomen area using clockwise directions around the area of the navel. This encourages waste elimination and improves the organ functions by bringing about conscious awareness to this “personal power center”

The Heart Chakra

Massaging the area of the upper back and a gentle traction to the shoulder joint and arm along with myofascial releases the pectoral muscles that assist in opening up this particular Chakra region.

The Throat Chakra

Gentle neck traction and release of restricted fascia tissues that surrounds the back and front of the neck is then followed by a gentle massage of the neck and the attachments to the base of the head.

The Third Eye Chakra

The massage used for the Anja Chakra includes a massage technique known as “brow stripping” that includes the muscles in the jaw area, temples and nasal sinuses.

The Crown Chakra

A scalp massage furthers the connection to the Crown Chakra followed by hair pulls and cervical traction to release cranial-tissue adhesion’s.

4) Color Vibration

 

When exposed to different types of colors that all have a different vibration, our physical state, emotions and moods can be changed. We are able to re-balance the Chakras by exposing our body to different colors in our homes, our food and the clothes that we wear. Other ways to absorb colors is to wear color glasses that absorb the vibrations needed in our bodies.

5) Health Through Music

Every Chakra responds to various Chakra Sound Healing Frequencies. Some of the popular techniques include the Solfeggio that is music frequencies used to create healing sounds. Another type of music commonly used would be the Isochronic Chakra Suite that are brainwave entrainment techniques that include Tibetan singing bowls combined with Solfeggio frequencies.

6) Professional Energy Healers

Professional energy healers offer services that examine a person’s energy levels in their Chakra system as well as locate the causes of blockages. After a thorough examination they are able to offer suitable healing treatments in regards to Chakra healing.

7) Chakra Stones

 

The Chakra stones are known as healing crystals that contain specific colors and vibrations. Every Chakra has a specified color, and this same color can be used in Chakra healing. However, even though the majority of stones with a certain color will be used to heal a specific Chakra, there are a few stones that can be utilized to heal multiple Chakras i.e. Clear quartz.

 

8) Yoga

When the wheel-of-energy or a Chakra is stuck it can be beneficial to release the energy or prana using movement. Yoga postures have been recognized as a fantastic technique to release stuck or stagnant energy out of the body. This encourages the flow of vital and fresh energy back into the body through breath and postures.

9) Essential Oils

Essential oils also form an important part of Chakra healing and are generally used combined with massage techniques. Below is a list of recommended oils for each Chakra:

  • 1st Chakra: St. Johnís Wort, Angelica, Patchouli and Frankincense

  • 2nd Chakra: Orange, Neroli, Clove, Juniper and Rosemary

  • 3rd Chakra: Lemon, Rosemary, Peppermint, Yarrow and Marjoram

  • 4th Chakra: Melissa, Rosewood, Basil and Rose

  • 5th Chakra: Lemongrass, Sage and Blue Chamomile

  • 6th Chakra: Clary sage, Elemi, Spruce and Lavender

  • 7th Chakra: Geranium, Myrrh, Gotu Kola and Sandalwood

Chakras Imformation

Chakra healing can be defined as a process aiming at influencing how energy moves through the chakras of the human body. It is often referred to as chakra balancing because its goal is to restore the optimal balance between the energy centers.

What is chakra healing?

When the chakra system functions properly, it is characterized by several properties:

  • Balance, overall equilibrium

  • Distinction between the different quality of energies or frequencies associated with each chakra

  • Appropriate intensity or level of energy of each chakra

  • Appropriate direction (clockwise or counterclockwise)

  • Appropriate polarity (inward and outward flow, or reception and expression)

It’s important to note that a chakra does not function on its own. It is part of a dynamic interrelated series of energy centers forming an entire system. Understanding what chakra healing means involves not only knowing how each individual chakra functions, but also how they interact with each other.

There are many energy healing modalities, some rooted in ancient wisdom and practices, some more recent. In today’s alternative medicine, we find reiki therapy as a common healing practice.

Make every cell in your body awaken and rejoice!

Most of us have energetic blocks and imbalances as well as energy-sabotaging habits that prevent us from accessing our full vitality, which leads us to feel exhausted, scattered, dull… even ill.

The good news is that doesn’t have to continue! Bestselling author and world-renowned expert on chakras, Anodea Judith, will reveal the secret to optimizing your energy system, during a free virtual event hosted by The Shift Network: Supercharge Your Chakra Practice: How to Heal Your Energy Centers & Unleash the Full Power of Your Life Force.

Why do we need to heal the chakras?

The state of our chakra is impacted by life experiences. It’s as if our experiences imprint energetic patterns into the chakras and influence they way they work. Negative experiences have a particularly strong impact as they often result in raising defenses, translating in suppression or contraction of the energy flowing through the chakras.

This is what happens when we talk about a chakra blockage. Even though imbalances are often described in terms of “closed” or “blocked” chakra, it is more accurate to use the images of diminution or increase of energy flow. When a chakra is “blocked”, it means that the amount and quality of energy it produces and flowing through it is highly reduced. Chakra healing aims at supporting a balanced flow of energy throughout the whole body or on specific parts of the body.

What influences the chakras’ balance in our daily lives?

When we are stimulated in our daily experiences, whether it’s through a direct physical stimulation or an emotional one, there’s a little change electromagnetically in our body that is registered through our chakras. The direction and quality of energy orchestrated by each chakra changes and the overall system balance fluctuates.

The cultural environment also has an impact the balance of our chakras. For instance, in a culture where mental abilities, rationality and scientific approaches are primarily valued, we can see a tendency to have a third chakra overpowering the whole system.

The way we live also has an impact, especially whether we take time to connect to a natural rhythm and earth elements. Spending your day sitting at a desk or in front a computer may translate into having very sparse energy in the first two chakras, limiting important supply and grounding for the whole system.

 

Need help balancing all of your chakras? The 7 Chakra Balancing Meditation is a relaxing meditation that will help you to activate and balance all 7 chakras. Your guide Céline Remy will lead you through a relaxing meditation combining Visualizations, Hand Movements and Affirmations. Allow Céline's relaxing voice along with beautiful music to guide you through this powerful rebalancing practice. Start your day in balance and/or re-balance after a busy day. This meditation can be performed everyday or whenever you need a tune-up. 

The philosophical foundations of chakra healing

The philosophical premises behind chakra healing may vary depending on the tradition and healer. Here are the most commonly accepted theories.

There are two main flows of energies contributing to the balance of the chakra system: An upward flow coming from the earth’s magnetic field going up the chakras, and a downward flow coming from a universal, all encompassing energy. These two main currents of energy are said to balance the whole system. Another view emphasizes the upward feeding flow of energy from the root chakra and up.

This dualism in sources of energies is reminiscent of the old philosophical question of “mind over matter” and the origins and causes of the psyche and consciousness. For the sake of clarity, we’ll focus on how the energy moves through the chakras and ways to balance it, instead of debating the philosophical underpinnings of chakra theory.   (all paragraphs from, chakras.info/chakra-healing)

OPENING YOUR CHAKRAS   (click on the link below)

https://www.eclecticenergies.com/chakras/open

What are chakras? A chakra (pronounced as "chok-ras" or "shok-ras") is defined as one of seven "...various focal points in the subtle body used in a variety of ancient meditation practices."

Everyone has seven chakra points in their bodies, and these areas conduct spiritual energies throughout your physical and metaphysical being. When these become blocked, you require chakra healing in order to get physical or emotional healing.

Chakra balancing is an important part of your health, too. If you're tired of feeling sick or unwell, then opening your chakras may be just the revitalization you need.

Here are 7 ways your chakras can become blocked, and how to unblock your chakras to help you feel healthy and whole again:

1. The root or "Earth" chakra

This chakra is located at the base of the spine. It focuses on foot, knee, leg, joint pain, bladder/intestinal conditions, sciatica, and low-back pain. Fear and/or repressed anger can block your chi (life force energy) to and throughout your legs and constrict movement and elimination of toxins from your bodies.

Fear runs continually within your mind ... perhaps a looping program you've inherited from your parents. The best way to release yourself from fear is to be present. As you become aware of spinning out into some dreaded future scenario, bring yourself back to this moment. As you become more mindful of where your head is at, you can see more choices to be at peace. Thoughts and emotions help shape your future, so why focus on what you don't want to happen?

Anger is a toxin that the body cannot eliminate without your cooperation! If you overreact to situations and people, you may be holding some long-term anger. Take the time to look at yourself. Stability, security, and trust fortify this chakra.

2. The sacral or "water" chakra

If this chakra is blocked, you may have reproductive organ pain, endometriosis, infertility, and sexual disorders. This chakra is located just below the navel. Guilt and shame can block the energy flow in this chakra. This chakra drives your creativity and sensuality.

Yet, you may have been led to believe that your sexual nature or sensuality is bad. Perhaps you were even told that you were dirty "down there." You need to embrace and love your body unconditionally. Become child-like. Think of the toddler who moves forth discovering the world and his body with wonder and glee. See how your energy is not in alignment with this self-expression and exploration.

Release the guilt and shame. Because when they're present in adulthood, they only sabotage your wellness and joy. What if the guilt is tied to something you did that you see as unforgivable? If you want to heal your body, you need to heal this judgment. Look at this younger self and realize the present you has more information! Have compassion.

 

Ask that younger version of yourself to forgive you for the judgment and forgive them, too. Move forward knowing mistakes shape us but they need not define us unless that's what you own.

3. The solar plexus or "fire" chakra

This focuses on stomach and digestive problems or eating disorders. This chakra is located mid-torso and is chakra is the center of your personal power. Many people with stomach concerns feel dis-empowered, yet you're powerful co-creators of your life (as explained earlier with the thoughts, emotions, and focus that guide your physical body). You just have to be more aware of what you're creating!

The relationship between feeling powerless and stomach upsets is obvious with travel ... butterflies prior to flying or, for some, getting sick if not driving the car or riding in the front seat. Empower yourself to heal by filling your solar plexus with a growing awareness that you are as powerful ... yet you may have been creating what you didn't want. Emotional and energy clearing assistance may be necessary. If you see that you have given your power to another (parent, former lover, etc.), you can move forward by releasing all blame and visualizing the energy you surrendered to this other one coming back to your solar plexus through unconditional love and forgiveness.

Take a non-judgmental view of yourself. Look for ways you have claimed the victim role. You won't heal well when you're in that energy. Give yourself permission to change your role and your story. You may be focusing on the things that are going wrong in your life rather than what is going right ... see that as self-sabotage.

4. The heart or "air" chakra

This has to do with disorders like asthma, COPD, heart, and circulation issues, or even breast cancer. The air chakra is located in the center of the upper chest, to the right your physical heart. The emotion and denser energy that can cause physical ailments here are grief and heartbreak. You may have heart chakra block due to trauma from a long-standing belief that you're not worthy of love.

I assure you, you're special! If you weren't, you wouldn't be here. Your light and spark and zest are important for this world. With the understanding that you're more than the body you occupy, open yourself to your internal self. It's time for you to step more fully into who you are here to be on your own. Honor their transition and live fully! Use your heart, arteries, and veins as a pathway for love to heal your body.

Love runs to you and through you, if you let it! Be open to loving yourself.

5. The throat or "sound" chakra

Blocks here could cause thyroid problems, laryngitis, shoulder pain, and scoliosis, so it makes sense that this chakra is located in the throat. This chakra can get blocked by unspoken truths. Were you raised with the concept, “Children are meant to be seen and not heard?" Perhaps you were told to hide abuse, and keep your mouth shut because your opinions didn't matter.

There can also be a feeling here that you have to be something you're not. Perhaps you carried a lot of responsibility from a very young age.

Eventually, using your voice will become more natural. Never hesitate to speak when you're coming from a space of love, compassion, and respect. Embrace your voice as part of your way to express joy.

6. The third eye or "light" chakra

Migraine headaches, vision problems, and ear problems (including tinnitus) are prevalent if your third eye chakra, which is located between the eyebrows, gets blocked.

Belief in illusions can shut down this chakra ... yet these “illusions” may be the opposite of what you’re thinking. Illusions are societal constructs and conditions placed upon you that cause you to live a "smaller" version of your true self.

You may even have expressed "knowing" as a child, but were told, "That's not real." This is the illusion that closes the third eye chakra. Powerful tools for opening this chakra are awareness, intuition, imagination, and intention.

7. The crown or "star" chakra

This chakra is located above the head, and when blocked can cause depression, anxiety, brain fog, autoimmune disorders, or even chronic exhaustion.This is your connection to your source or "creator." Separation and the belief that you are alone rather than part of a whole unified consciousness can block this chakra.

Yes, your natural state as is to have individual consciousness, but through meditation, yoga, mindfulness, you can connect with something greater.  If you believe you cannot do something, you will not. If you open yourself to your unlimited potential, you'll be amazed at what you accomplish

I hope you take the time to look within. This knowledge can help you get to a more empowered state and get your wellness and joy back on track! You can change anything about yourself by making different choices. (all paragraphs from, yourtango.com)

How Do Healing Stones Work?

Chakra stones are used to activate, balance, or amplify the energy of the chakras. Crystal healing is based on the belief that stones or crystals have a natural healing frequency that can be activated to contribute to moving or balancing energy around them. In the case of chakra stones, the vibrational signature of each crystal corresponds or resonates with specific energy centers.

You may use intention and intuition to activate the healing power of the stones. Active imagination or visualizations could help in accessing the space in which you can use stones or crystals in combination with chakra healing. Energy is channeled and magnified through the crystal. It then affects or enters in resonance with the vibration or frequency of the chakra you’re focusing on.

How To Choose The Right Chakra Stone?

First, you can check the set of stones typically associated with each chakra. Note that the chakras can have several stones and you will need to determine which one works best for you and in which circumstance.

You may also use your intuition or intuitive perception to pick your healing stone. For that, use the intuitive sense or senses that are most developed for you. You may look at stones and see which ones are most appropriate because of their glow. You may feel the energy of the stone by hovering over it with your hand and feeling a tingling or heating sensation. Or you may just know which one to choose when you need it.

 

Chakra Stone Jewelry

If you’re wearing a healing stone as jewelry, you may consider a stone that supports your overall energy or fits a specific intention. The crystal could have a physical healing purpose, reflect emotional or spiritual aspirations – or you may just be attracted to a color that resonates with you that day. Remember that the stone power is increased by the clarity of your intention. So make sure you choose carefully.

(all paragraphs from chakras.info/chakra-stones)

Our recommendation is to use a type of string or mounting piece that does not interfere with the stone healing power. Neutral materials, such as thin ropes, leather, or pure metals, such as silver or gold are good options. Wearing chakra stone jewelry around your neck or as bracelet is a statement both for yourself and for others. Stones are powerful amplifiers and may radiate or attract energy both in and out through their natural qualities, symbolic and cultural meanings, as well as the personal affinities you have with them.

Using Stones For Healing The Chakras

There are many ways to use chakra stones for healing. Once you’ve chosen the stone you want to use, place it near or on the chakra location on the body. A laying down position is easier for working with crystals. However, you may use a stone while you’re standing or sitting by simply holding it in your hands or wearing it as jewelry on a pendent, in your pocket to keep it close to your body.

(all paragraphs from chakras.info/chakra-stones)

Focus on activating the resonance between the stone and your chakras with the power of your intention, meditation, or simply relax knowing you have the support of your chakra stone to harmonize frequencies.

Don’t forget to cleanse or recharge your stones before and after using them. For that, there are many methods including leaving them under water or salt water for a little while (use caution with salt water as some crystals are sensitive to it), leaving them under the sun or the moon light for the day or the night, smudging them with sage, burying them in the soil for an extended period of time for more intense regeneration.

Meditating with Crystals

Meditation is extremely beneficial for every part of our being—our mind, our body and our spirit. It helps us to relax, clears our mind and releases negative energy and unwanted thoughts. Using crystals for meditation is a powerful tool to deepen your meditation, as well as achieve a specific outcome during your meditation. On a spiritual level, meditating with crystals can help to raise your consciousness and awareness, deepening your intuition and bringing insight.

People visit Energy Muse’s store on a daily basis to meditate with different healing stones and crystals to get a feel for their energies.

Crystals are the tools to help you start and maintain your meditation practice, connect with a specific intention or goal and move into deeper states of meditation.

However, the more you begin to practice meditating with crystals, the more you’ll want to experience different energies. Use the guidelines below for meditating with crystals.

Must-Have Tools, Crystals and Stones for Meditation

We always recommend everyone have two crystals for meditation—quartz crystal and selenite crystal. (all paragraphs energymuse.com)

Quartz Crystal: This is one of the best crystals for meditation because it can be programmed with your meditative intention. Quartz Crystals bring clarity of the mind and help you to become more focused and clear about your dreams. They also amplify the energy of any other crystal, making it ideal to have for any meditation.

Selenite: This crystal is beneficial for meditation because as you are clearing your mind and relaxing your body. Selenite healing properties facilitate the release of negative energy and energy blockages to energetically cleanse your body. It also protects your energy field, allowing you to safely practice meditation without over stimulating your energy body or chakras. Selenite harmonizers make it easy to have calm energy flowing through your body.

Incense: Sacred smoke has been used to help induce meditation for centuries. Pick a scent of incense that resonates with you to help you find peace as you enter a meditative state. Frankincense Resin is one of our favorite meditation incenses.

Palm Stones: Palm stones or touchstones are a great tool for beginners or seasoned meditators. They’re stones that are larger than normal tumbled stones, so they fit snuggly in the palm of your hand. As your meditating, you hold one stone in each hand and feel the energy of the stones flowing into your body and calming your mind.

 

Ways to Use Crystals for Meditation

Meditate with a Crystal for Your Intention

It is beneficial to choose a crystal that contains healing properties or energies that are in line with what you want to achieve out of your meditation. Setting intentions and meditating with your crystal each morning enhances and magnifies your results. When your mind is focused on your intention from the stillness of your meditation and energy of the crystal, you will have better motivation and inspiration for achieving your goals or receiving certain energy.
