When chakras are balanced?

by Veronica Molinski

When our seven main chakras are open and balanced, energy can flow freely through our bodies and minds. When any of these energy centers become blocked, it leads to stagnation and can contribute to a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. The beach is my happy place and here are 3 science-backed reasons why it should be yours too. When this chakra is balanced, you feel supported, with a sense of connection and security with the physical world and with your feet on the ground.

You will feel joy, compassion, love, gratitude and peace if this chakra is optimally balanced. Balancing the throat chakra is as easy as “being impeccable with your word” (The 4 Agreements of Don Miguel Ruiz). This way, you use the power of your word to tell truth and love. When you speak, speak with integrity.

Don't speak against yourself or others and say ONLY what you really want to say. Chakra balancing is the process of restoring an even flow of energy through the chakra system. Rather than simply, and sometimes abruptly, unlocking the chakras (which can cause Kundalini syndrome), it's best to focus on finding a balanced energy flow. This can be done through a variety of different ways.

Some techniques may be more effective for one than the other. Balancing the flow of energy through the chakras ensures that the entire system works in harmony. If you find yourself disconnected from the physical experience of your root chakra, you can reconnect with the earth by spending time in nature. This chakra dictates how you digest experiences, how you feel about the things that happen in your life, and your general attitude towards your life.

Indian healers can also unlock your chakras, but it's a bit difficult to find real healers you can trust. If you feel creatively blocked, as if your ability to play and create is stifled, then your svadistahana chakra may be blocked. You will feel sincere and honest but firm, free to articulate your thoughts, feelings and ideas, if this chakra is optimally balanced. Even taking a bath or shower can help balance the chakra and, at the same time, relax the body.

The Sacral Chakra, or Svadhisthana Chakra, is located in the sacrum, the bone plate above the coccyx that connects to the lumbar vertebrae. The treatment, which includes singing crystal bowls and herbal aromatherapy, uses massage techniques that focus on different areas of the body, each of which corresponds to a specific chakra. In addition to a regular bath (because they are also good for chakra balance), consider a sound bath. The human body system thrives when the chakras and nadis are open and the prana, or life force, is allowed to move throughout the system with ease.

According to medical aesthetician and spiritual healer Mashell Tabe, chakras are energy systems throughout the body. To balance the sacral chakra, it's helpful to first find out if you're hyperactive or underactive. Yoga poses that stimulate the thyroid gland or stretch the neck muscles are ideal for the throat chakra. The therapist will then move toward the front of the body, focusing on the chest, neck, shoulders, face and head to further relax and open up the flow of energy through the upper chakras.
