What Does Chakra Healing Mean?

A chakra is an alignment point of the body and it can receive and relay the life force energy. The word Chakra comes from the Sanskrit, it describes the continual spinning of a wheel or the aural energy sphere within the body of mankind.

Traditional Hindu writings have often said that there are nearly 90,000 points of Chakra throughout every human body, but there are truly only seven extrmely important points of Chakra. These seven vital points of Chakra can be found from the bottom of the spinal cord all the way up to the top of the head.

The root or base chakra, the sex or navel chakra, the stomach or solar plexus chakra, the heart chakra, the throat chakra, the brow or third eye chakra and the crown chakra are the seven major chakras of the body. These main chakra points of the body can receive and transmit energy to and from its universal surroundings including various elements and the individuals around it. They are able to influence the spiritual, mystical, emotional, intellectual, corporeal and psychological activities of an individual all by themselves.

Throughout history Chakras have been described several different ways, but most of these ways have one common characteristic. The Chinese medicinal description and even the Hindu interpretation have things in common. Chakra is the understanding of the way that the human mind thinks and the ways in which humans express and experience emotions in everyday life.

The chakras are in perpetual motion whether we are awake or asleep. Continual activity does influence the glandular processes, physical disorders, structure and appearance as well as our actions and deeds. When one or more of the chakras malfunction for different reasons this will cause an imbalance, it then continues to make it known in other areas.

Many believe that this all happens because the chakras are part of the endocrine glad that is located inside your body. If you do not keep your chakras in balance then you will get what is known as a disturbance in this glad which will affect everything that is attached to it.

You can pretty much bet on that what ever ailments or conditions that you have, are related to the balance of the chakras in your body. It is very important for you too try to keep all of the chakras in balance. Some people do not see any physical; symptoms but they can see a change in their emotions.

Generally speaking, the repressed or elapsed emotional balance that comes from experiences of past trauma is one of the main causes of imbalance of the chakras. The cellular level of the body is influenced by the emotional toxins that are habitually buried inside the subconscious of anyone.

This is the reason that we should deal with our emotional baggage as this will aid us in maintaining a good balance of the chakras which in turn influence the healing process of our physical being.

Thus, the human body deserves chakra healing therapies. It can use various techniques such as colour therapy, aromatherapy, Reiki healing, etc and can use objects such as crystals, gemstones or a pendulum for opening up or balancing the chakras

The performances of yoga breathing and physical exercises are beneficial to maintaining chakra balance within the body and it is something that many individuals enjoy participating in.

Other methods include healing through utilization of meditation classes, for a specific period of time, through visualization with the aid of CD or audio tapes for encouraging relaxation techniques and reducing stress in the natural healing process.

Although we cannot see or feel our chakras, they work alone to help sustain our bodies in several ways.

The body needs nutrition in order for there to be balance of the chakras and the pleasure of good health. There are particular foods that aid in maintaining the balance of each of the seven chakras.

If you want to care for your root chakra then stick with Root-type vegetables. You can also go with protein-rich foods to help your chakra get the most nutrition. Your solar plexus chakra thrives on starches such as cereal, breads and even pastas. You can also do dairy products and yogurts for this type of Chakra. You will want to feed and your sexual chakra sweet fruits, vanilla and some cinnamon or nuts.

For nourishing the heart chakra, the centre powerhouse of our being, green tea and green leafy vegetables are the best. Intake of a lot of water, fruit juices and tangy fruits such as peaches and apples nourishes the throat chakra.

The third eye chakra which is responsible for the sharpness of third eye sight and a profound sense of the psychical gifts we all have is nourished by consuming such items as grapes, blueberries, grape juice and wine.

The center of our emotional being is called the crown chakra which needs to be detoxified. This is generally done through fasting. Some people prefer to do a ritual inhalation which can be done through the use of natural herbs as well as incense.

We can influence our health when we influence or stimulate our chakras. Doing so inspires us to be more responsive in our lives as we become completely in tune with our general surrounding as well as all the other elements of the physical and metaphysical environment we live in.

How chakra therapy improves your health

There is a common misconception regarding practices like chakra therapy; some individuals feel it is an alternative to traditional medicine. In reality, even though chakra therapy can be used alone, it is most effective when used as a means to supplement other treatments.

Chakra therapy improves your health by addressing an individual’s spiritual and emotional energy needs.

“Many people are aware that they are more than their body, more than their minds, or feelings. They intuitively feel there are underlying issues beyond any physical problem, issues perhaps lying in the invisible energy body,” Dean Ramsden, creator of the field of “Relational Energy Healing” — a synergistic approach combining chakra development, chakra relational cords, and astral energy healing, told Saludify.

“Even so, chakra work should never be used to replace first consulting with a physician, or as an alternative to following medical advice,” he added. “But it can add a tremendously important piece to anyone’s healing process: the personal and interpersonal energetics that underlie many disease processes. The value of energy work is to add the human element of the healing process back into medical care, by addressing the energy body and its needs.”

What are the fundamentals of chakra therapy?

Chakra therapy, according to MindBodyGreen, is the practice of balancing seven energy centers within the body known as chakras. Each chakra is located in a specific area of the body down the midline, and each location is responsible for the balance of certain emotional energies.

The seven chakras are:

  • The Root Chakra: Located at the base of the spine in the tailbone area. This chakra center is responsible for feelings of being grounded and stable.
  • The Sacral Chakra: Located two inches below the navel. This chakra center is responsible for our ability to accept others and new situations.
  • The Solar Plexus Chakra: Located in the upper abdomen. This chakra center is responsible for confidence and control.
  • The Heart Chakra: Located just above the heart. This chakra center is responsible for our ability to love.
  • The Throat Chakra: Located at the throat. This chakra center controls our ability to communicate.
  • The Third Eye Chakra: Located in the center of the forehead, between the eyes. This chakra center is responsible for the ability to focus on the bigger picture.
  • The Crown Chakra: Located at the very top of the head. This chakra center is responsible for feeling connected spiritually.

When all seven chakras are balanced with energy output, the body feels its best. Sometimes, however, those who adhere to this form of therapy believe chakras can become unbalanced or blocked. This happens when feelings of doubt, insecurity, negativity, and worry creep into our lives, restricting the life force.

For example, someone who lack social confidence and thus experiences anxiety and stress related to that condition may have an unbalanced Sacral or Solar Plexus chakra. In the same way, someone who might have their Sacral or Solar Plexus chakra closed or unbalanced due to external pollutants, may start experiencing lack of confidence and anxiety.

But each chakra also regulates energy towards different parts of the body and has a direct influence on the physical health. In that sense, the body is a multidimensional being with physical, emotional, spiritual and energy fields that affect each other.

“The core principle of chakra healing is that personal consciousness, how awake we are, affects any physical healing process or ongoing health,” said Ramsden. “By positively influencing an underpowered chakra, a healer can assist a client in deepening their grasp on what is necessary to deal with in regard to their illness or personal problem.

“Chakra healing influences our mental and emotional understanding of a wide variety of complaints we may struggle with, be it illness, or recovery after an accident. Chakra healing can also helps us tap into hidden energy body resources, so as to better cope with health challenges, or with emotional struggles such as the loss of a spouse, or parent.”

Chakra therapy improves an individual’s health by returning the body to a balanced state so it may better deal with the physical issues affecting it. Balanced chakras can be equated to a decrease in stress which is a negative force inhibiting healing and causing health issues of its own within the body.

What to look for in a chakra healer

While it is possible to do things to balance chakras on your own, individuals who are under extreme stress from an illness or injury may benefit from the work of a professional chakra healer.

Ramsden cautions there are no real standards that chakra healers can be measured by, unlike the education and licensing of other professional helpers. But three things can help guide you to find a good energy or chakra healer.

“Firstly, has the healer undergone a training program, one requiring two to four years of ongoing study? A ‘trained’ healer will usually give a better and more professional healing than any untrained one,” he explains.

“Secondly, can you read or hear the chakra healer talk about their work, so you can first understand their approach? Read their web page, or their book, or listen to them speaking at an event. This will give you a lot of information about how well informed the healer is, and if they can help you with your problem or issue.”

Thirdly, indicates Ramsden, once you find a healer that interests you then only book a single session, just to try them out before committing to long-term work. After this first session you should get some form of immediate change or notice a difference.

If you don’t notice any change, move on and find another healer to try. Healers, like other professionals, should provide you with results.

Chakra Healing anyone?

Have you ever received unsolicited email that is just so funny, you never want to “unsubscribe” to it? I have!

Some time ago (about a month) I started receiving email from people who call themselves *Chakra Healing. They were doing some sort of survey and asked me if I would be so kind as to participate.

The survey started off with an easy question: your name and surname. Because I’m rather shy and introverted, I gave them a nom de plume pseudonym, or as it is known nowadays: a secret anonymous avatar.

I called myself: **Vrot Poeper, seeing that I’m often referred to as “an old fart.”

I decided on Vrot Poeper because it’s nice and short – and easy on the ear in any language. I completed the survey; and that was that – or so I thought.

This morning I received another email from these guys. I’d like to share it with you:

Dear Vrot Poeper,

I need to clear the air on this. (I peed myself – clear the air, geddit?)

You see, I get a LOT of emails with questions on Chakra Healing. Some people don’t really understand what Chakras are about. The buck stops here. You deserve the truth.

Eight Chakra questions you were afraid to ask:

Your 8 questions (my answers in bold):

1.    Are Chakras real? You’d better believe it!

2.    How come I’ve never heard of it? You don’t live with me.

3.    What impact will it have on my life? Your spouse will hate you and you will sleep in the spare room.

4.    Will there be any pain or discomfort? Only if you duck too late, or keep it bottled up.

5.    Will Chakras interfere with my religious beliefs? Contrary to popular belief, ALL religion is based on Chakras.

6.    I’m a busy person. Will I have time for Chakras? You’ll always be able to squeeze a Chakra in.

7.    What if I already practice something, like meditation? You can Chakra and meditate at the same time.

8.    What is the best way to get started? Start with very little pressure and build up to a full force, hurricane-type, mass destruction.

What Chakras can do for you?

You’ll be more confident and intuitive. You’ll attract more abundance. You’ll improve your relationships with your friends and family. Your sex life will sizzle like never before. And whatever challenges life can throw at you, you’ll always have the answer.

Always ready to lend a healing hand,

Regards,

Carol Tuttle.

OK. I sent my answers to the Chakra Healing Centre by email.

Now we wait…

*Chakra(s) – from Hindi, meaning: fart(s)

**Vrot Poeper – from Afrikaans, meaning: Rotten Farter

Palmer offers free workshop at New Frontiers

Karen Palmer will hold a free workshop titled “Chakra Healing, Clearing and Attunement Intensive” at 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays (Oct. 15, 22, and 29) at New Frontiers in its Community Room.

Chakras are energy portals located in various locations throughout the body and are vital to psychic, intuitive and healing abilities and therefore it is of utmost importance that we work with them regularly to keep them balanced, cleared and attuned.

“In this workshop I will guide you through movement, breathing practices and meditations techniques,” said Palmer. “I love teaching this class because I can actually teach tools that you can learn and use in your everyday life to relieve stress, improve your energy levels and see life become easier to navigate. Make yourself a priority and you will be so thankful you did.”

While these classes build on themselves, the public is invited to attend any of the classes that fit their schedule.

New Frontiers’ Community Room is in Unit B10 of the Valley Plaza, just down the walkway from New Frontiers Market.
