Chakra balancing is the process of restoring a harmonious flow of energy across the chakra system. The effect of well balanced chakras translates into a feeling of well-being, relaxation, increased vitality and awareness of self.
Chakra translates to “wheel” in Sanskrit; because these energy centres spin. The 7 main chakras in the body are distinct energy centres that start at the crown of your head and end at the base of your spine. They regulate all parts of your energy system, influencing everything from emotional processing to resistance to disease. When the chakras are 'unbalanced' or blocked, the flow is disrupted and this can cause fatigue, malaise, insomnia, depression and other negative symptoms. Chakras become blocked through lifestyle such as stress, anxiety, and negative energy that is unable to release from the body. We create blockages in the physical body through poor dietary choices, lack of exercise, overexertion, and lifestyle choices such as overwork, drug use, or lack of sleep. If you imagine that your chakras are like part of a well run engine, when they malfunction, the machine can seize up.
To keep your chakras well oiled, clean and balanced, a session of clearance and re-balancing can help encourage the energy flow and restart your 'engine'.
