7 Days of Chakra Balancing
I like to reboot at the new year, focus on health and well being, and for me this work begins at the level of energy within my body. We have 7 energy centers (known as chakras, which means “wheel” in Sanskrit) in the body, beginning at the base of your spine and continuing up to the crown of your head. Each of these energy centers corresponds to major nerves within your physical body, as well as your psychological and spiritual state of being. When your chakras are in alignment and fully activated, your intuition will work together with your emotions and your physical body to achieve balance, contentment and happiness within your daily life. It’s essential to pay attention to your chakras and to keep them open in order for energy to move fluidly throughout your body. When there is blockage, energy is unable to flow. Maintaining balance and openness can prove challenging, but with mindfulness and disciplined attention you hold the power to make adjustments and to improve your well being.
The Throat Chakra is located at the base of your throat and is associated with the color blue. When your Throat Chakra is balanced you are able to express yourself clearly and authentically. You communicate your truth and are easily able to transform thoughts into words. When others are speaking, you listen with a genuine focus and interest.
When doing Throat Chakra work, you should gather your blue stones (Angelite, Aquamarine, Calcite, Blue Lace Agate, etc.), a blue candle, and a communication blend (e.g., Vox). Smudge with sage, light your candle, anoint yourself with an expressive scent; then, when your mind is focused and clear, repeat the following mantra:
I speak in alignment with my most authentic truth.
I express my thoughts genuinely and with clarity.
I communicate my feelings with ease.
I listen with interest.
I am a divine receiver.
