What is Chakra healing?

Chakra healing is the practice of opening, clearing, cleansing, supporting and strengthening the chakras. It can involve one or many holistic remedies to heal and balance the seven chakras.

The different imbalances

The chakras can become imbalanced in two different ways. Either the chakra can become overactive (open) or underactive (blocked). Usually, when a chakra becomes overactive your emotions will be over the top. For example, you may be angry, frustrated or verbally aggressive. If a chakra is underactive on the other hand your emotions may come inward. For example, you may feel insecurity, a lack of confidence and have social isolation. These examples do depend on which chakra is unbalanced.  

Whether your chakra is overactive or underactive you clear the chakras in the same way. The cleansing process will even the balance out naturally without you having to do anything different to an open or blocked chakra.

Why do chakras become unbalanced?

There are many reasons why our chakras become unbalanced. During our lives, we may experience emotional pain, something that has happened to us or that affects us. Over time if these emotions are not dealt with they can lead to physical symptoms. This is a sign of an unbalanced chakra.

As you work with chakras you will learn to recognise when a chakra is unbalanced and will be able to deal with it early to stop it leading to more serious issues. You may recognise a physical symptom first or it could be an emotional one. Either way, cleansing the right chakra will help.

What order should I unblock my chakras in?

The chakras at the top pull energy up through the lower ones. If the lower ones are out of balance then so will be the ones above. So for that reason, it’s really important to keep the chakras balanced and unblocked.

Because of the way the energy flows, it’s best to start at the unblocking lowest chakra before you move on to the others. It may be that you don’t need to start at the root if it’s balanced, but if you are unsure where your blockage is and are new to chakra cleansing then it’s best to start with the root chakra.
