Although we apparently have thousands of chakras, these seven chakras seem to be the most recognized. Chakra also means energy centre or vortex. Each chakra has an important part in balancing our body, mind, and emotions. Our chakras vibrate at different frequencies, each sharing information with the others. When one chakra is not communicating in harmony, it can disrupt our healthy inner wellness routine or rhythm.
Our chakras can be harmonized and activated in various ways through exercise, sound, chanting, colours, environment, visualization, symbols, elements, breathing techniques, crystals, thoughts, just to name a few.
Using intuition, I may be guided to scan a client's chakra(s) using my hand, intuition, or by using a pendulum.
Healing crystals may be incorporated into the session to contribute to overall chakra balancing.
An example when a throat chakra isn't communicating with the others... it may not allow us to communicate what we need, or allow the complete opposite in that we may speak without thinking. Or because our throat chakra is not communicating, we may start to feel insecure about ourselves, which can be related to our root chakra. In this case, both chakras could use some TLC.
