Seven Chakra Therapy



Introduction to Chakras

The ancient school of yogic thoughts stressed that there is a connection between physical, mental and spiritual health of the human beings. Our body has seven chakras, and these chakras determine our overall wellbeing. The Sanskrit word ‘Chakra’ means ‘wheel’ or a ‘disc’. Beginning at the base of the spine and moving atop the head, these energy centers have their own cosmic colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Each of these colors is associated with one or more Chakras. Making the use of a suitable color with a specific chakra can upturn the speed of the healing process considerably. It is proper functioning of all the chakras that ensures appropriate energy flow to all body parts including our vital organs. Thus chakra cleansing and balancing is needed to enjoy good health and happiness which translates to overall abundance in all spheres of life.

Aura pervades our physical body creating spinning vortexes of energy at specific places which are our endocrine glands. And it is these spinning vortexes wheels are called 'Chakras'.

The seven major Chakras take charge of the specific organs in the body and are in turn governed by expressions, feelings and senses, including the sixth sense. As we go through different experiences and challenges that life poses to us in our path to realization of perfection, our thoughts, attitudes and reactions which tend towards fears or negativity, block our chakras. These negative emotion(s), faulty beliefs or rigid, dogmatic spiritual perceptions have to be released in order to open the chakras. Once chakras get blocked, the free flow of energy to the chakras gets inhibited and you develop emotional disorder and physical ailment related to the chakras. By working with your Chakras, you can clear away the stagnant negative energy/ belief that do not serve your highest purpose. This broadens your perspective which will assist you in making the changes necessary for better health, harmonious relationships and personal and financial wellbeing.

Chakra science is the study of seven chakras in human body and Chakra Therapy is healing them when they are blocked, causing numerous mental, emotional and physical ailments.

What is Chakra Balancing and Healing?

Chakras are the subtle energy centres that support the existence of mind, body, heart, senses and body and above all, the life force. When the Chakras go out of balance causing emotional and physical issues, the therapy used to balance them is called Chakra Balancing or Chakra healing. These are located at seven different spots along the spinal cord, each in charge of a specific area of the body, while also connected with changing pertinent emotional behaviours. Tightness, malfunction or painfulness in a body area or recurring negative feelings and emotions are the signs of Chakras getting imbalanced.

Why Chakras get imbalanced?

Blocked chakras mean either they are underactive or overactive, causing unnatural ailments. With Chakra Healing, chakras are balanced; you start feeling energized bodily, intellectually and emotionally. The reasons they go out of balance are unhealthy lifestyle choices, frantic schedules, negative emotions and diseases. Healthy Chakras welcome the flow of cosmic energies from the Universe. Chakra balancing and healing results in a richer, pleasant life as the seven chakras can once again optimally receive and diffuse positive energies.

How to balance all the chakras?

Chakra therapy, Chakra meditation or sadhana, Colour and Aroma therapy, Reiki as well as Yoga are the most preferred ways to harmonize Chakras. Rudraksha beads and gemstones worn correctly during sadhana (meditation) make an effective holistic healing method. Rudraksha Therapy for Chakra Balancing and Healing wherein the beads emit the accurate frequency for healing of energies required to heal the Chakras.

Rudraksha beads are obtained from Elaeocarpus ganitrus, broad-leaved trees growing mainly in the regions of Himalayas, Ganges grasslands, and Java of Indonesia. The beads possess spiritual as well as therapeutic powers described in the ancient Vedic scriptures such as Shiva Purana. Rudraksha beads are found in nature from 1 mukhi to 21 mukhis. For instance, a Three Mukhi Rudraksha bead is ruled by the Fire Element and burns all of your past karmas. One who wears it is able to cure all the problems related to stomach and liver, clearing digestion problems. It is connected with Manipura Chakra which, if imbalanced, causes stomach problems, past memories to hunt you, guilt or shame etc.

With gemstones, you can cure numerous emotional and physical ailments. It is believed that gemstones, which are several forms of crystals, harmonize universal energies. They can amass, store, and discharge the ripples of electromagnetic energy. Thinkers and scientists recognized that a crystal is placed in a field of energy; it collects and discharges energies. Take an example of a Quartz gemstone; it is composed of silicon and oxygen molecules, building chunks of minerals. It is believed that mineral crystals have exceptional and specific influences, functions and vibrations. All these properties of gemstones affect the mind and the body. For example, a pear is connected with the Moon that controls the current of emotions in the human beings. One can mollify their anger and aggression by wearing a natural pearl.

Unless the root cause is acknowledged and upturned, good health and vivacity are impossible to gain. Chakra therapy cleans your chakras as well as the aura.

The chakra therapy is beneficial as it makes the healers aware of what’s incorrect and where the issue is. Any disturbances in auras are identified, worked on and rectified so that the chakras can be well aligned. This would make you feel re-energized and exhilarated with boundless energy.
