Why Your Chakra Balance Is Important
Daily life is full of challenges and sometimes it can be difficult to avoid painful emotions which may overpower us. It may be a photograph, a song or bumping into a past acquaintance which may stir such sensations, creating feelings which are as intense as the first day they were stored away to avoid emotional pain. For anyone experiencing such imbalance or discontent in their life, one of the fundamental healing modalities is to clear, activate and balance their chakras. The ‘Chakra System’ is an incredible diagnostic tool which promotes chakra balance by maximising the flow of energy in seven key parts of the body. All things in our universe are radiating energy, from the highest mountains to the tiniest blade of grass, to each cell in our body.
In Yogic tradition, the human body has seven energy centres known as ‘Chakras’, these are arranged vertically from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. The seven chakras are: Crown Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, Throat Chakra, Heart Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Sacral Chakra and Root Chakra. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for ‘wheel’ and energy spins in a clockwise direction moving negative energy from our body and spins counterclockwise to pull positive energy from the external world into our body. All the chakra energy centres are key to our specific physical, emotional, energetic, mental and spiritual issues.
Once these energy centres are healthy and open, we are said to be physically, emotionally and mentally aligned and balanced in our relationships with ourselves and others. Balanced chakras promote general health and well-being by ensuring the free flow of life energy throughout the body. Imbalances or blockages in the flow of this vital energy may result in mental, emotional, or physical illness. Each chakra relates to specific organs of the body, ailments, colours, elements and emotions and by removing such imbalance and maximising energy flow enables mind, body and spirit to function optimally.
Through chakra healing, you can improve the balance of your key chakras and bring your health and mental attitude into a more peaceful state. You can balance your chakras through meditation, mantras, lifestyle changes or chakra yoga which can help all misaligned chakras leading to a more inner and outer calm. Such practices can direct healing energy to affected areas releasing the blocks of negative energy and enabling the free flow of positive energy into the chakra. As we perfect this, we learn to identify blockages and imbalances in our own chakra systems and can apply appropriate realignment practices to harmonise and rebalance our bodies. Making ourselves aware of habits and choices which are contributing to our imbalance is the first step and by consistently practicing building new habits and conscious choices which support balanced chakras we can thrive in life.
With regular healing and chakra balancing treatment we can all ensure the health of our physical body, safeguard our emotional balance on the path to spiritual advancement, peace and contentment.
