Why Is Chakra Clearing Important?
Chakras are centres within our body’s physical, and etheric energy fields. They are the portals or gates through which Life Force flows in and out of our being. These vital energy centers are sensitive to energy and often become clogged with residues from physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual disturbances and traumas.
Any build-up of residue will interrupt the natural flow of the chakra. It may get slowed down or even blocked. When this happens, there is a knock on effect throughout your body, which is likely to have a negative effect on the organs and cells of the body to the chakra. This also affects our emotions, thoughts, the quality of our outlook, and wellbeing.
When negative energy is held, or lodged within a chakra, we can feel stuck or constricted in certain areas of our life. Chakra balancing is the perfect way to make sure your bodies energy system is running optimally!
Here’s a quick meditation for checking each of your Chakras!
Sit in a comfortable chair and close your eyes. You may play meditation music if you like. Start by taking 3 large breaths. Let each breath be bigger and let your shoulders drop further down on each exhale. Breath normally as you allow your mind to clear. Now mentally tune into your Chakra system
1) Start at your base chakra.
This chakra is located at the base of your spine. It is associated with your adrenals and its colour is red. This chakra relates to earthly issues, the physical body and financial matters.
When this chakra is blocked, you may not feel completely grounded. You may feel unmotivated. If it’s overactive, you may feel aggressive and hyperactive.
Each of the chakras is like wheels of energy and they can be moving too quickly or too slowly. Think of them as little batteries that keep you powered thru-out the day.
Visulize this chakra and see it as a glowing red disc of light. See it moving. Is it moving too fast or too slow or not at all? Imagine that you can control this spinning disc. If it needs to be spinning faster, imagine grabbing the disc and spinning it a little faster. If it needs to slow down, imagine that you see it spinning slower.
2) Now move up to your navel and imagine the spot two fingers below it.
This is your sacral chakra. It’s related to emotions, desires and creativity. This chakra also relates to sex drive.
If this chakra is overactive, you may feel worried or possessive. If it’s underactive, you might have a lower sexual drive or feel introverted.
This chakra is about enjoying life with passion. See it as an orange glowing disc. Is it spinning too fast or too slow? Speed it up or slow it down until it’s moving at a nice pace.
3) Move up to your Solar Plexus Chakra which is between your navel and rib cage.
This chakra deals with power confidence and self-esteem. This is a major psychic receptor area.
If you feel with your gut and are clairsentient (meaning you feel stuff psychically), then this chakra is an important one for you.
When this chakra is moving correctly, you will feel balanced and confident. When it’s out of whack, you may experience stomach disorders and feel nervous or worried a lot. Picture a bright yellow golden light emanating from this disc. Is it moving at a nice calming speed? If not, imagine yourself moving the disc.
4) The next chakra is your Heart Chakra.
It’s located at your heart and represents compassion, love and joy. This chakra is your centre chakra and it’s your connection to mind, body and spirit.
A balanced heart chakra means that you can transform any past hurts into love. An overactive heart chakra means you have anger and jealousy.
An underactive one leads to feelings of being unloved or lacking compassion for yourself or others. See it as a bright green light. This light disc should be spinning in a nice flowing way. If it isn’t, take some time to move the disc and let your heart open up.
You may experience some tears of joy or sadness as this disc moves. Let yourself feel those feelings and love yourself for performing this act of compassion.
5) Now come up to the Throat Chakra.
The throat chakra is located at your throat and it is associated with communication and sounds.
Have you been clearing your throat a lot or get sore throats? That’s a sign that your throat chakra needs some work. Your throat chakra is more balanced when you are able to speak your truth clearly.
When it’s underactive, you resist change and don’t speak your mind. When it’s overactive, you may speak aggressively towards others. See this chakra as a bright light blue spinning disc. Is it moving fast or slow or not at all. You know what to do to get it moving right!
6) Make your way up to the Third Eye chakra located between your eyebrows.
This chakra deals with clairvoyance (or being able to “see” psychically).
If this chakra isn’t moving fast enough, you may feel scared to move forward or come into your own. If it’s moving too fast, you might be worrying too much or get headaches.
Meditating, exercising and breathing can help balance this chakra. See it as a glowing indigo colour. Look at the disc and watch it move. Is it moving fast or slow? Give it a little push or slow it down if it needs it.
7) The final chakra is your Crown Chakra located at the top of the head.
This is your link to your higher self. It’s your connection to your spiritual wisdom. Positive energy enters thru your crown chakra and energises you when this chakra is balanced.
When this chakra is not flowing right, you can feel depressed, unhappy, disconnected, and blocked from inspiration. Yoga, meditation, and breath work are great for opening up your crown chakra.
Picture a bright violet light rotating right at the top of your head. This light should be glowing brightly. If you see that your crown chakra disc is spinning slowly, then give it a push. If it’s moving too fast, then take some deep relaxing breaths and feel it slow down.
As you balance each of your chakras, it’s like you’re charging up your energy batteries. When they are moving in a balanced way, you should feel like your entire being is glowing. You can do a quick check-up of your chakras when you lie in bed at night or while standing in the shower. Take a look at how brightly your chakras are glowing… if they seem dim, then give them a little spin!
