How To Do An Effective Yet Powerful Chakra Healing and Cleansing

Jun 10, 2008
The word Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means circle or wheel, and it is used to describe certain points of energy in our bodies. These points of energy range from our groin, which is red, up to the top of our heads, rising through the colors of the rainbow as they go. There are a total of 7 chakras, which represent the points of high energy concentration or energy ports in our bodies.

By cleansing, healing, or opening our chakras, we can help get rid of some of the accumulated junk that builds up in our bodies or in our auras. This spiritual waste matter can clog these ports, affecting our health, our emotions, and our well being.

1) What are Chakra Blocks

Chakra blocks can come from emotional issues, traumas, and more. Clearing our chakras can involve dealing with these issues, but is mostly a meditative process that involved moving and dealing with energy.

If you are inexperienced in chakra work, it can be beneficial to have someone else help you with your first cleansing, guiding you through the process or even doing the cleansing themselves while you observe your energy flows to determine how what they are doing works with your energy.

With practice, it is wonderful to be able to do your own chakra cleansings and to take care of the blocked energy pathways on your own.

2) How to do Chakra Healing

If you want to do a chakra cleansing yourself, you can begin with simple visualization and energy work. Begin by imagining a root growing from between your legs down into the ground. You can feel the energy of the earth coming up through this root, and you can send your excess energy back down again to keep yourself in balance. Make sure that you are comfortable, then begin breathing deeply.

With each inhale, imagine the energy filling you until you feel completely full of light and energy. Picture your lowest chakra at the base of your spine as a closed flower bud.

Imagine it opening to the feel of the light energy inside you, and blossoming. Take a moment to enjoy the red flower, then move to your next chakra.

The chakra, in order, are red at the base of your spine, orange at your pelvis, yellow at your solar-plexus (where your rib cage meets), green at your heart, blue at your throat, indigo in the center of your head, and violet at the crown of your head.

3) Exercising Each Chakra

The following are some exercises to help you if you feel that you have a blockage in any of your seven chakra. You can perform the exercises quickly and easily, and they will help you to keep your chakra open and functional.

For your Red chakra, stomp around the house, do squats, or march. You want to get really physical, particularly with the legs. If you have exercise equipment, try leg presses.

For your Orange chakra, move your pelvis. You can do pelvic thrusts or just swivel your hips around. Dancing is good for this, but make sure to focus on your pelvis.

For your Yellow chakra, dance around the house. Movement is good, so do the twist and open up your chest.

For your Green chakra, do push ups, hug yourself, or do other exercises that involve your chest muscles (like a breast stroke).

For your Blue chakra, sing, scream, howl, and make some noise. You can also try cleansing it with a salt water gargle.

For your Indigo chakra, try a mental exercise like remote viewing, lucid dreaming or simple visualizations. This can take practice to work effectively.

For your Violet chakra, try prayer or meditation to get the crown of your head to really open up. The key is to feel a connection with the divine.

You can also try vibration exercises. Make an intoning sound (also called vibrating); many people use Om. Adjust the sound until it resonates with the chakra that you are trying to open (you will feel it with that part of your body). You can also do this multiple times to clear each of the seven chakras.

One last exercise is to try physical stimulation. Gently pat the part of the body that houses each chakra (do not be shy as shame in your body can block your chakras right up).

You can also try other stimulation, like a vibrating massager, or put some of your favorite music on a pair of headphones, crank the music up all the way, and press the headphones to each chakra (not on your ears!)
