Chakra Healing


“Each of the seven chakras is governed by spiritual laws, the principles of consciousness that we can use to cultivate harmony, happiness, and wellbeing in ourselves and in the world”
― Deepak Chopra

Chakra, meaning wheel of light in Sanskrit, are energy centers within your energy body. There are seven chakras, each located around the nerve ganglia (bundles) of the spinal column. A Chakra can be visualized as a tornado or whirling vortex over a region of the body. This vortex can suck in or push outward. Either state is out of balance. A normal chakra is at a harmonious level with the others and takes in only as much energy as it needs. Each chakra transmits and receives life-force energy often called “chi”, “qi”, “prana”, or “universal intelligence”. There are also many minor chakras, most of which are located at the joints of the physical body.

Chakras reflect your physical, emotional and spiritual well being. When negative emotions imbed themselves in your energy field, your chakras get blocked. You may get sick or feel out of balance. Chakra healing allows more energy in, helping to release the block. Initially, when the block is released, you might feel subtle energy shifts for a while. Your body must integrate the released energy that can now flow.

It is important to understand what type of energy each chakra attracts and the type of imbalance that can occur when we are in a negative state of mind. Your thoughts and attitudes can change whether your chakra is taking in energy or putting energy out.

Each chakra is related to specific life lessons to be learned. As you work through different issues in your life a specific chakra will be affected.

The practitioner acts as a conduit to direct the healing energy of the universe to the patient. The technique can be practiced through clothes and may even be performed without any actual contact between healer and patient.

This is a gentle but effective form of treatment for numerous ailments, working on healing the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our beings. Chakra healing excellent when deep relaxation is required, during times of extreme stress, for grief and for when physical symptoms prevent the client from having a massage or other types of treatments. It is a universal energy. This ancient system of healing is a safe, powerful but gentle way of using light, energy vibrations to restore and balance your self and others.

Chakra healing is not attached to any religion or cult, it is open to anybody.

It can do no harm and is non-intrusive. People who have a balancing, usually say it is of great benefit if only to give relief to their stressful lives.
