it never calls attention to its own existence.”
~ Bertha Stuart Dyment ~
Chakra is a Sanscrit word that translates as ‘sacred wheel’. The chakras, or energy centers, process and regulate the flow of life-force energy that is all around and within us. There are several thousand chakras within the body, but the seven major chakras, located along the spine, are the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra and Crown Chakra. Each of the chakras represents a color beginning at the base with red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
Each of the chakras are also associated with a body part or gland. For instance the Throat Chakra is associated with the thyroid (gland) and the mouth, throat and ears. When the Throat Chakra is out of balance it can cause physical dysfunctions such as sore throats, neckaches, thyroid problems and asthma. If there is an emotional dysfunction in the Throat Chakra it can cause perfectionism, the inability to express emotions and blocked creativity.
There are different ways our chakras can become dysfunctional. They can be too open or too closed and they can be spinning too fast or too slow. Problems may occur for different reasons but many of them stem from an emotional root. The chakras absorb energy that comes from our thoughts, feelings and outside environment and feed this to our body. For instance, if we have negative feelings, we will be filtering negative energy through our chakras and into our body. Over time this can manifest in the body as illness or disease. Our chakras also absorb energy from the environment. Other people’s negative emotions or a room full of clutter will produce an unhealthy energy which we absorb through our chakras.
We cannot always avoid negative energy from others or our environment, but we can change our feelings from negative to positive to protect ourselves from this energy. Keeping our chakras in tip-top condition is the key, in other words keeping them spinning in balance. Chakra balancing is a bit like spring-cleaning the chakras and fine-tuning them.
In a Chakra Balancing session we will begin by setting an intention for your session. Then we will open your aura signaling to your Higher Self that we will be working for your highest and greatest good and for the good of all. Then working a few inches above each chakra, we will clear each of your chakras beginning at the Crown Chakra and working down towards your Root Chakra. Once the clearing has taken place, we will balance and align your chakras and finally, we will close your aura.
It is important to understand that we are not ‘opening’ your chakras. To open one’s chakras with the intent to speed up their enlightenment goes against the natural order. Forcing the chakras to open can create problems that are unnecessary such as being faced with an issue that needs resolving but not having the answers to solve it. Each person is an individual and must progress through their spiritual growth at their own rate. As you grow in your spirituality, your chakras will naturally open up and let more energy flow in to help you along your path.
Crystals and Essential Oils can also play a part in balancing the chakras. For instance, if working to balance the Solar Plexus Chakra, Sunstone or Citrine crystals can be used along with Ylang Ylang, Lemongrass or Peppermint essential oils for a relaxing and holistic experience. At Loving Heart Reiki, LLC essential oils are included as part of a session at the request of the client or at the suggestion of the practitioner.
