Chakra Healing for Balance, Good Health and Spiritual Growth
The Chakras are the seven points within the human body that are considered central areas or energy points that balance the rest of the body, the mind and the spirit. Spiritually speaking, they are also considered to be the various states or elevations of consciousness. The theory of Chakra points was originated in India by a yogi around 600 BC and were bought to the Western world in the 1920’s. The English word Chakra comes from the Sanskrit for Wheel or Circle, which has major significance in Buddhist and Hindu religions as a symbol of universal unity and completeness. While Western culture was introduced to the idea of Chakra early in the 20th century, the philosophy did not take strong hold until much later. In the last twenty years or so, the New Age movement has gained new insight and understanding into this ancient philosophy and the key role the chakras play in balancing the body and mind and spirit. The ideal mental, physical and spiritual state has all seven chakras open and in perfect balance, thus if any are “blocked” or unbalanced, the rest of the body, mind and spirit may suffer as a result. It is with this idea that chakra healing came into existence. Throughout the world chakra healing centers have sprung up to assist those wishing to achieve this balance of mind, body and spirit.
Chakra healing and chakra balancing may take many forms, some of these include using Reiki, meditation, yoga, chakra jewelry, crystals, crystal wands, stones, acupuncture, visioning, massage with flower essences and sound therapy. Wellness centers and chakra healing centers all over the world offer these various forms of chakra healing as do private practitioners. Healing chakras is delicate work and should be done carefully as to not disrupt or potentially cause problems. If you decide that you want to try chakra healing on your own rather than going to a chakra healing center or a professional, be sure to read as much as you can on the topic healing chakras. Numerous books and literature exist on this topic and it is advisable that you take it slowly and understand what each of the seven chakra’s represent before attempting to balance or open blocked or unbalanced chakras. A good method of balancing or healing chakras, which does not require a great deal of research and can be done by anyone, is the use of stones, mustika pearls and crystals in the form of jewelry or carried in a crystal bag, pocket or purse. These pieces can be worn on the body at various points and will aid individuals experiencing blockages within their spiritual centers.
Color plays a big role in chakra healing and many chakra healing centers employ the use of colors corresponding with the associated chakra color to enhance and unblock the chakras. Crystals, stones and mustika pearls can be purchased in a large variety of colors that are said to vibrate with the particular chakra in question. Also the use of elemental forces such as fire, earth, water, air, space, light and sound aid in the opening, balancing and healing chakras. Each chakra is represented by an element, thus wearing or using New Age tools associated or possessing the virtues of these elements will aid the chakra healing process.
No matter which method you decide to use for chakra healing, whether it be visiting a chakra healing center, hiring a private practitioner or using meditation, yoga, crystals, stones, mustika pearls or massage many people see a marked improvement in their spiritual, mental and physical well being when these energy points of the body are open and balanced. To continue to see improvements and maintain balance many people practice a daily, weekly or monthly schedule of attuning the chakras.
Mustika pearls have been used by many for chakra healing as they not only provide a variety of color options that can be matched up with the corresponding chakra colors, but also each is represented by an element such as fire, Earth, water, air, spirit and light. They serve a duel purpose in this respect and thus are worth investigating along with other options such as those that chakra healing centers offer.
