Chakra energy healing balancing aligning 7 major chakras

Magick is energy. The Chakras are the energy centers in our bodies that allow us to receive, process and transmit energy. Your Chakras must be functioning properly for truly powerful and effective magick, as well as for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Crystals and the Chakras
Crystals and Stones work in a subtle way to unblock psychic and physical energy. Simply being in the presence of their harmonious energy field can help our own energy to be more harmonious. When Crystals and Stones are used for specific chakras they are ideal for clearing, aligning and balancing chakra energy and re-establishing a healing, creative energy flow. The intense vibrational energies in crystals/stones can, does, and will directly affect the Chakra energy centers and is a tremendous tool for unblocking/energizing the flow of energy and enhancing your Chakra work.

Herbs and the Chakras
Herbal energy is an excellent way to maintain healthy chakra energies. See Herbs and the Chakras.



"Chakra" is a Sanskrit word which means "wheel." Each Chakra energy center is a vortex, or “wheel of energy” which extends from the physical body into the etheric layers of the aura.

There are 7 major chakras, as well as numerous minor chakras, throughout the body.

Each chakra governs a particular area of the human body and the experiences associated with it.

We need to understand the chakra system because it has a direct connection to a healthy body, mind, and soul. Understanding each of the Chakras, and their energies, can help us respond to life with AWARENESS, rather than being UNCONSCIOUSLY REACTIVE. It is important for all the chakras to be unblocked, energized, and functioning efficiently for the all-round health and well-being of an individual on all levels (physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually).

Why are healthy Chakras important?
  • Physical well-being - Because the chakras provide vitality to the physical body, poorly functioning chakras can create dysfunction & disease in the physical body.
  • Psychological & emotional balance - Each chakra correlates to a range or frequency of emotions & ideations. If too much or too little energy is focused in a particular chakra, our ability to receive, experience and express the related concepts and emotions is impaired. For example: if your solar plexus (which is related to self-esteem and Will power) is deficient, you will suffer from lack of self-esteem, confidence, and direction. Enhancing the function of the chakras enhances our emotional and psychological balance and well-being.
  • Self-expression and creativity - Since the chakras relate in various ways to our capacity to create, express, and move in the world, dysfunctions in the chakras can cripple our ability to truly be ourselves … to live our unique expression … to experience the Joy of creative passion.
  • Spiritual Connection - To heal our chakras is to heal our consciousness. Without a commitment to the wholeness of our body-mind-heart-&-spirit, we cannot begin to bring matter, mind & spirit together. Spirituality flows from the awareness of this connection and the resulting connection we feel with all that is around us. As we begin the healing process, vistas of connection open before us, and we discovery more deeply the Divine within & without.


How do I know if my Chakras are blocked?
There are numerous signs and symptoms of blocked chakras. Chronic physical problems, frequent headaches, backaches, tension, anxiety, fatigue, and insomnia are just a few of the physical signs. Feelings of anger, fear, resentment, jealousy, discontent, hopelessness, helplessness, insecurity, low self-esteem, and depression are a few of the mind and spirit symptoms. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, chances are your chakras energies could use a good cleansing.


WORKING WITH YOUR CHAKRAS

Each of the 7 major chakras have:
  • a front & a back
  • Different and multiple colors, crystals, herbs, aromas, etc. associated with them
  • Specific relationships with different physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues
Elemental associations are included below for the benefit of those that work with the Elements.
If you are unfamiliar with Elemental work, you need not incorporate this association into your Chakra work.

1st Chakra – (Root Chakra) - Element: Earth
The Root Chakra is the root of your being and your deepest connection to your body and earth. The primary drive associated with this chakra is survival. Food, clothing, shelter and protection are the necessities to which it responds. It opens downward in the direction of the Earth, indicating its importance in connecting a person to their physical environment. The first chakra is particularly important in psycho-spiritual integration. It is one end of a system that at the opposite end opens at the seventh chakra. To maintain the proper pressure within the system, the first chakra must be opened and balanced with the seventh chakra.

2nd Chakra –(Sacral Chakra) - Element: Fire
The primary drive of the Sacral Chakra is the search for pleasure. Sensual and sexual activities become a primary concern. Situated just above the genitals, it regulates sexual energy, which is far more than mere physical sexuality or eroticism. It is the seat of creativity through which we experience childlike wonder and excitement of the manifest universe. It is from the 2nd Chakra that a person experiences the world as a magickal place. Two examples of a balanced Second Chakra are a greater sense of intimacy and companionship, and the ability to create and maintain healthy boundaries with ourselves and others.

3rd Chakra – (Solar Plexus Chakra) - Element: Air
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the seat of personality. Self-esteem, Self-assertiveness, and Personal Empowerment are the drives of the third chakra. From this center you develop Principles, Ethics, Beliefs for which you are willing to stand, and feelings of contentment and trust. When this chakra is open and functioning normally a person obtains calmness even in times of distress. The energy from the solar plexus is the energy which supports commitment and trust, and these two radiations of energy must flow freely if people hope to sustain long-term intimate relationships. For a relationship to last and grow in trust, both parties must connect from the solar plexus center as well as from the heart center.

4th Chakra – (Heart Chakra) - Element: Water
The Heart Chakra is love. It is associated with compassion and healing, and in this capacity it radiates a bright emerald green color. In its transcendental aspect, the heart chakra is the source of light and love; not only of human love, but agape love, the Divine love which has been poetically described as “rivers of living water.”

5th Chakra – (Throat Chakra) - Element: Water
The Throat Chakra is about embracing our uniqueness and individuality and controls our ability to express ourselves fully and creatively.. The core need of the fifth chakra is to find our inner voice and learn to speak our truth. Be willing to question everything you previously believed. You may end up assimilating most of what you knew to be true, but it must first come through a deep process of questioning to establish its validity. An activated fifth chakra, transmits the intent of a soul (astral and mental bodies).

6th Chakra – (Brow or Third-eye Chakra) - Element: Water and Air
The Brow/Third-Eye Chakra is associated with the syllable Ohm which represents the beginning and end of all things. It is from this center that we harmonize the forces within ourselves and achieve a balance between Yin and Yang. The sixth chakra controls intuition, clairvoyance, divination, etc. It is the seat of creativity, and when active and open, the seat of Divine Intelligence. It controls intuitive and rational thought, memory, and all higher mental activities. A fully opened and activated sixth chakra allows for such things as clairvoyance, telepathic communication, and healing through mental projection. Through the power of their own mind, those with activated sixth chakras can create new realities for themselves on the physical plane and go beyond the earthly goals and attachments which divert most people from fulfilling their Dharma.

7th Chakra –– (Crown Chakra) - Element: Akasha (Spirit)
The Crown Chakra is most often described in Yogic texts as a thousand-petaled lotus. By awakening the crown chakra a person achieves wholeness through the process of psychospiritual integration. We transcend fear and experience unconditional joy. In Tantra, the awakening of the crown chakra corresponds to the union of the feminine principle with the masculine principle. This union, once formed, lasts forever. By achieving this state, we go beyond the limitations of linear time and become centered in omnipresence. This is the last chakra to be awakened and therefore corresponds to the highest level of spiritual perfection.




As you progress in your Chakra work and gain more experience, you will find that specific meditations with specific crystals/stones are more or less effective for you when working with a particular Chakra energy for a particular purpose. We encourage you to experiment with different crystals and colors. Once you have become comfortable in your work, we urge you to begin expanding your Chakra work to include corresponding herbs, oils, aromas, elemental and planetary correspondences, etc.

The more you learn and the longer you continue to work with your Chakras and Energy fields, the more comfortable you will become. Chakra energy is very personal, and you are the best judge as to what works best for you. Blended with additional energy tools (such as Reiki, Aromatherapy, Colors, Herbs, etc.) a beautiful, enlightening, and balanced world of heightened awareness for your body, mind, and soul can be yours.


We would love to hear from you if you have questions or would like to share your personal experiences with Chakra and Energy work... and until merry we meet again... Blessed Be
