Chakra balancing is the process of restoring a harmonious flow of energy across your chakra system. When your chakras are balanced, you will feel relaxed, centered, grounded, energized, and aware.
As an energy healer, who has spent years working with other healers for my own chronic health conditions, I recognize that healers can only guide you. After sessions, my clients often ask how they can maintain their raised frequency and not lapse into their old ways of being. Here’s how you can balance your own energy without learning Reiki.
The root chakra is all about feeling connected to the Earth, your humanely life, your tribe, and your body. Allow Gaia energy to seep in through your feet as you stand straight. Let the Earth support you. Feel rooted in the human experience and in your body. Know that your body is a sacred vehicle for you to experience joy and fulfillment. Remain aware and appreciative of the support you have from family and friends.
Smell the Flowers
Do you take time to notice the small gifts of life? The sacral chakra is all about being able to accept pleasure. Appreciating good weather, delicious food, and uplifting company are all ways to gracefully accept joy. The sacral chakra is balanced when you’re open to enjoying every day in small but meaningful ways.
The sacral chakra is also where you hold the energies related to addictions and cravings. Whether it be food, social media, sex, or alcohol, indulge with consciousness. Placing too many restrictions or not having enough discipline can weaken the sacral chakra. Allow yourself to have fun but be aware of your dependencies.
Unleash Your Creative Side
Also tied to the sacral chakra, creativity is crucial for your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We all have a creative talent, skill, or passion that is waiting to be discovered. Ask yourself, “How can I bring creativity to my next meal? Can I set aside 20 minutes before bed for a sketch? Can I make gardening a priority this weekend?” Your creativity is essential to your humanness and sacral chakra energy.
Be Willing to Say “No” When Needed
The solar plexus is aligned when you feel empowered, and you cannot feel empowered unless you have healthy boundaries in place. Say no to the events that aren’t uplifting, the partnerships that don’t serve, and the habits that don’t fulfill you. Put your phone on airplane mode. The things that rob you of your time are also weakening your solar plexus, which houses the energies of joy, motivation, and independence.
Say “Please” and “Thank You”
The heart chakra is balanced when you harness feelings of generosity, kindness, and acceptance. In order for the heart chakra to be balanced, you should have an equal exchange of giving and receiving love. Feel gratitude for your blessings but don’t be afraid of asking for what you need with a “Please.”
Sing, Even If It’s to Yourself
Use your vocal chords and expand your throat chakra. If you’re a yogi, you may want to join try Kirtan. The sacred Sanskrit mantras have an elevated vibration that brings new information and light to your consciousness. The throat chakra, in particular, comes to life when you express your voice.
A healthy throat chakra asks for you to be honest. Before you can be authentic with anyone else, come to terms with yourself. Write down exactly how you’re feeling. What emotions have you been holding on to? Which thoughts are running through your head? Allow yourself to write them down without judgment or fear.
Write a Letter
Sometimes you’re wise enough to know that others aren’t willing to hear your truth. At that point, you may choose to not confront them with your message, but you can still express yourself and connect with your throat chakra. You don’t have to send a letter but get your message off your chest and onto paper. As long as your feelings are no longer stored in your tissues, you’re winning!
Pay Attention to Your Dreams
Your dreams are one way with which your intuition speaks to you. When you ignore your intuitive whispers, the third eye chakra becomes blocked or stagnant. Keep notes of your dreams and see how you’re being guided. Intuition, at a very simple understanding, is recognizing patterns. Notice the little messages you’re receiving over time to see the big picture that your soul is unveiling.
Surrender to Your Faith
Ask yourself, “What do I know is taken care of for me?” Whether you believe you’re supported by your higher self, angels, the Earth, your body, or life in general, feeling this faith will align your crown chakra. Expand your crown chakra by affirming who and what you have faith in.
You are your own healer and you can transform your life through your chakras. Tapping into your authentic expression, intuition, conscious indulgence, connection to the Earth, and faith are all ways to maintain your vibration between energy healing sessions. While the chakra system can be aligned and healed through Reiki, lifestyle measures are essential to maintaining your frequency.
