So what are Chakras?
Why would you balance them?
From the base of the spine to the crown of the head there are 7 main chakras that are thought as energy points. Each one is a channel that gives life and vitality to our bodies. When the energy in a particular chakra is blocked, the blockage can manifest itself as a physical and an emotional issue. Sometimes we feel stuck and unable to function. Bringing on emotions of sadness, frustration, and anger.
When we bring a form of healing energy in the chakra to balance the physical and emotional issues it can dissipate quiet easily.
Different modalities can bring relief and bring back balance to the chakras such as Reiki. A universal healing method uses gentle touch and placement for healing and tries to improve balance in your body. Brining harmony and peace to mind, body and spirit.
Another useful tools can be simply the use of Essential oils. As they emote different vibrational frequencies just as the chakras do.
So when an oil matches the natural frequency of a chakra, it can tune it when its out of balance, helping to bring harmony to the body.
As an example , the Solar Plexus, 3rd chakra (located under the breast plate) is a common troubled area that as a Reflexology practitioner I come across frequently among my clients. This chakra pertains to self-confidence, self-identity.
Quote that explains simply by Dali Lama " By unlocking the solar Plexus we are better able to focus our energy and creating the life we want for ourselves"
A wonderful essential oil blend is grapefruit, lime and lemon. Providing energy, cleansing, focus and vitality. Bringing you back to stand firmly in your power.
We can look at the heart 4th chakra ( located in the centre of the chest) ) we can apply lemon essential oil. Creating a feeling that is energizing and uplifting.
Both relating to love. This chakra influences our ability to give and receive love in a healthy way.
Another chakra is the Sacral Chakra , the 2nd chakra (located under the naval)
This chakra is responsible for trust and relationships. Orange essential oil can be excellent to be applied to this area providing balance with a cheerful grounding scent.
The overall benefits to be aware of where you are at and being open to receive the healing to release stagnant emotion while simultaneously opening up a fresh channel of creative potential , energized, enthusiastic and powerful.
We can be directly impacted by inspiring modalities whether its Reiki or simply diffusing a few therapeutic grade essential oils, the scents that can propel us into a higher state of consciousness and wellbeing.
