Today, we’re going to focus our attention on how to do chakra healing. For those of you who are new to the concept of chakras, let me give you the gist of the body’s seven principal energy centers and how understanding this concept is very important for our overall well-being.
Chakras represent the seven principal energy centers of our body. Each chakra symbolizes a certain zone or area of our body that encompasses the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of our lives. The energy in our body helps us reconnect with the energy of the universe.
It is ideal that these forces emanating from each area should flow freely; and to be able to achieve the optimal health and well-being, the chakras should be well-balanced — meaning, each chakra should work together and create harmony for our body’s needs.
In our previous article, we cited just a few of the many amazing benefits of chakra healing (Read: 7 Benefits of Chakra Healing). Now that we’re familiar with the concept of chakra healing and its many benefits, we can now explore the different chakra healing techniques that will strengthen your overall wellbeing.
The concept of chakra healing might be overwhelming and intimidating for some. But in actuality, there are simple techniques that anyone can try out. It is important to understand the importance of maintaining and strengthening a well-balanced flow of energy. And here are some ways you can clear out those blocked and unbalanced chakras.
Practicing yoga regularly can help you release the lethargic and enervated energy from your body. Yoga postures help open and balance the energy centers of your body.
Realign your inner energy with the universe through yoga poses targeted to the heart chakra by doing yoga poses like the eagle pose and some good backbends. Yoga postures like the camel pose, bridge pose, and shoulder stand can balance your throat chakra, which also helps you to learn to manage your emotions, feelings, and how you communicate. If you think your metabolism and digestive system need attention, then you may try focusing on your solar plexus chakra, the energy center that is also connected to your self-esteem. To do this, consider doing yoga postures that concentrate on your core strength, including the seated spinal twist, leg lifts, mountain pose, etc.
Meditation is another chakra healing technique that is established to be effective. Chakra meditation will bring you to a state of self-awareness, wherein you can be fully mindful of your senses and the energies within you. Becoming aware of your inner self and your physical body can help you notice the issues and complications that are often neglected, and will enable you to be more responsive. For example, if you feel an imbalance in your root chakra (located at the base of your spine, which is associated with your sense of safety and security), reconnecting our own energy to that of the universe is very important. To do this, you may try standing meditation outdoors to be able to experience the earth’s energy through your feet traveling to the base of your spine. This will allow for a more stable foundation, supporting and guiding your body to safety and security.
3. Mindfulness Practice
Mindfulness practice enables you to be fully aware of the present, of the here and now. It is important that we learn to incorporate mindfulness into everything we do to maintain healthy chakras. By practicing mindful breathing, you will eventually learn how to relax and be conscious of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations. When your mind, body, and senses coordinate, you’ll feel more relaxed and untroubled, which will keep your chakras balanced.
4. Daily Positive Affirmations
Positive affirmations are also one of the most simple and most effective chakra healing techniques. By learning how to inspire and empower yourself, you learn to block out the negative energies, while letting the positive energies flow freely and smoothly. An affirmative mindset is so powerful that it can assist in keeping your energy centers clear, balanced, and coordinated.
5. Crystals and Stones
We’ve also discussed the healing crystals in our previous article. We’ve mentioned that each crystal or stone possesses healing powers that target a wide range of issues our body encounters – be it physical, mental, or emotional matters. Crystals are believed to be a very effective chakra healing technique that when put on a specific area on our body, can restore the energy, vitality, and power within you.
