Healing Your Chakras

As an empowerment coach and Reiki healer, I often look for energy blocks that my clients may be experiencing. As you lie in bed in the morning, get in the habit of reviewing your chakras to determine where you need to pay attention. Balancing your chakras can help you feel safe, open, and creative. For more complete information, I’ve linked each chakra to a specific practice I published in past newsletters.

The first chakra, the root chakra is located at the base of your spine and resonates to the color red. Issues for the Root chakra revolve around safety and survival and help to connect you to earth. When this chakra is out of balance, go out in nature, hug a tree, or move your body.

The second chakra, the sacral chakra, is located just below the naval and resonates to the color orange. The issues that come up with this chakra are related to the sexual organs. This chakra relates to creativity and sensuality. When you have difficulty feeling creative, open your hips, get into water, or eat orange foods.

The third chakra, in the solar plexus, responds to the color yellow. The issues related to the third chakra have to do with how confident you are in the world. If this chakra feels blocked, make a list of your goals and create steps to take and a timeline to complete the goals.

The fourth chakra is located in the heart and relates to the color green. The heart chakra is related to relationships, compassion, and forgiveness. To heal this chakra, state your feelings of gratitude and practice forgiveness.

The fifth chakra is located in the throat and is associated with the color blue. This chakra relates to finding your voice and speaking your truth. To heal your 5th Chakra, sit quietly and put your attention individually on each of the first four Chakras. Determine where there might be issues in the lower chakras and ascertain how they impact your communication.

The sixth chakra is often referred to as the third eye and is located in the middle of the forehead and responds to the color indigo. The sixth chakra relates to intuition and spiritual living. An unbalanced 6th Chakra can have you feeling spacy. Try meditation, Reiki, or being in nature.

The seventh chakra is located just above the head and is referred to as the crown chakra. This chakra is related to the color violet and helps to connect your physical body to your spiritual being. To bring this chakra into balance talk to your guides, tell them what you want at this stage of your life, and ask them to help you.
