Have you ever heard the phrase “good vibes only”? or felt a negative presence in a room? Have you felt really good energy from a perfect stranger, like you’ve known them forever? When a person feels light, happy, and nurtured, it’s likely their chakras are in alignment. Balancing your chakras is a wonderful way to reach optimal well-being in your body, mind, and spirit. We are all beings of light, and when our energy is blocked, we can feel drained, imbalanced, or distressed. And since frequency is a universal language, your vibrations not only affect you, but everyone around you. Your chakras are centers through which energy flows. This is where we collect and absorb the energies within and outside of ourselves. When your chakras are balanced, your body and mind work in harmony to make you feel elevated, confident, and happy.
Below are 7 simple ways to incorporate chakra healing into your daily life:
Imagine going to the doctor for a checkup. He/she scans your body for any tenderness, looks at the pupils of your eyes, listens to your heartbeat, and takes notes of any complaints you might have. Assessing your chakras is just as important as going to a doctor for a checkup, only this time, the doctor is you. You know what goes on in your body better than anyone else. Ancient Egyptians believed that breathing a name aloud would call it into existence. Bring your energy to present time by speaking your name aloud, softly, over and over again. Close your eyes, and imagine your spirit guides coming to you. Call on them, ask them to guide you. Feel their energy and bring your awareness to your body, thanking them every step of the way. Where do you feel blocked? Where does your energy feel low? Where does it feel strong?
- Yoga and Meditation
Yoga and meditation are some of the best ways to get in touch with yourself. Light a candle, take deep cleansing breaths and visualize your body coming into straight and right alignment. Really imagine your connection to Spirit, your inner knowing, your honest truth, your emotions, your power, your creations, your safety and connection to Earth. Visualize each chakra spinning in the light of its associated color. As you focus on each chakra, send healing light to that space. When all of your chakras feel attended, open your eyes.
- Morning Mantras
Chanting mantras has a powerful effect on your chakras. Imagine your chakra like a singing bowl and the mantra as the striker. Mantras elevate your chakras’ frequency, clearing out any negative energies or blockages. These positive vibrations are sent to your body and spirit, sending healing vibrations that transmit through your centers. Music works in the same way.
Journaling is so important to spiritual development. Often, when I write, my words reveal insights that wouldn’t have surfaced otherwise. The more you write, the easier it is to unlock the wisdom that resides within you. Record any thoughts or feelings that arise during meditation. Did you notice any colors around certain parts of your body? Did a part of you ache? Invite spirits to speak to you through your words. In this way, you also practice your psychic gifts.
Practice balance. Balance is an ongoing process. When we think positive thoughts, our actions become positive. When we think negative thoughts, our actions become negative. Incorporating balance in your daily life gives you stability and a sense of calm. Prioritize and focus. What is important in your life? What do you need more of, and what do you need to set free? Listen to your intuition and take the first steps toward actualizing your goals. Your energy will shift.
Gemstones hold the power to heal, activate, open, and align your energy centers. Specific gemstones vibrate with the energy and color of your chakras. For example, placing carnelian on your Sacral Chakra activates your passion and creative force. You can wear your select gemstones as talismans and carry their energy with you wherever you go. You can also place your stones on your altar, desk, in the bedroom, or any space you feel can use an energetic lift.
- Herbs and Essential Oils
Scent has the power to balance and support your chakras. It activates sluggish energetic function or calms an overactive one. Like gemstones, specific aromas resonate with specific chakras. For example, cypress is a Root Chakra oil. It connects us with the Earth, increases our sense of safety and security, and instills calm awareness. Dab cypress essential oil on yourself and you will feel held and protected. Always make sure to dilute essential oils in a carrier oil. If you have cypress in herb form, you can use a pinch of it as incense, make a sachet to tuck in your pillowcase or carry it wherever you go.
In a nutshell
These daily practices will help you feel energetically lighter. Balancing your chakras starts with listening to your body, visualizing and feeling the energy that’s within you, then taking the time to bring it all into harmony. May your mind, body, and spirit be in perfect alignment.
