Chakra Healing and Cleansing
is a series of practices that work to remove stagnant energies and emotional blockages in your body, mind, and soul. In ancient India chakras
are defined as "rotating wheels of swirling energy that correspond to the main nerve centers in the body. Each chakra contains and reflects bundles of nerves and major organs of the body and has a healing effect on your psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being".
Even though there are literally hundreds of Chakras, there are seven main ones that are typically used when it comes to healing. These 7 major Chakras begin at the bottom area of your spinal cord, at the point of the coccyx bone, and then run up the spinal cord to the very top part of your head, the crown.
The names of these 7 major energy wheels are: Muladhara - Root Chakra
, Svadhisthana - Sacral Chakra
, Manipura - Solar Plexus Chakra
, Anahata - Heart Chakra
, Vishuddha - Throat Chakra
, Ajna - Third Eye Chakra
, and Sahaswara - Crown Chakra
The Chakras integrate mind, body, and spirit into energy hubs that are easily accessible to the healer.
In a Chakra cleansing session the healer will use his breath, his hands, or crystals and oils that are placed on your major Chakras. Together, this helps align the energy flow so that it runs properly. During cleansing, the Chakras must remain open and aligned.
