A description of chakra healing.
The art of chakra healing has been used for centuries to balance the important energy centers in your body called chakras. You can use a number of different tools such as crystal healing or meditation during chakra balancing. The result will be a physically healthier body and a happier, more peaceful you.
You have seven primary chakras that correspond with vital areas of your body, this also includes the emotional and spiritual aspects of your life. 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 the immune system. 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 centre must be vibrating at the proper frequency independent of one another in order for the 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 balancing comes into play. Chakra stones, the human voice, music and chakra meditation brings the frequency of the chakra back into proper vibrational alignment.
For example, the root chakra is greatly affected by the hematite, onyx, ruby or garnet gemstones. During crystal healing, a practitioner may use one or all of these chakra stones to cleanse your root chakra and bring it into harmony.
Chakra healing through meditation is 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 chakra starting with first one and working your way up to the crown chakra. You do this by imagining the flow of energy from chakra to chakra; you are helping to remove blockages in each energy centre that might be causing pain and illness.
A chakra meditation
Hold a crystal of your choice in the palm of your hand. Close your eyes and start to breathe slowly, rhythmically but naturally. Concentrate on your breathing for a few minutes feel yourself starting to relax more and more with every out breath.
Now create a pyramid that you fill with blue light, which is the color of peace, acceptance and understanding. When you have drawn in the healing blue light, open your eyes and focus on the crystal you have chosen. Take in everything there is to know about the crystal, for example, its shape, texture, temperature and vibration.
Now slowly imagine it growing larger and larger until it is big enough to enter. Look for an entrance through the base or sides. Imagine yourself floating inside the crystals clear white interior. Explore the inside and then feel yourself becoming one with the crystal.
When you are ready, create a doorway at the opposite side from where you entered. Now step through the opening. Now see the crystal growing smaller until it rests once more in the palm of your hand. Now become aware of your pyramid of blue light. Now give thanks for all that you have received.
