During a chakra balancing session, the client is fully clothed while lying on a comfortable, heated massage table with a blanket if desired. For further relaxation, soft music is played and gemstones and essential oils may be used.
The session begins with energy healing as the practitioner connects with the clients’ energy as well as the Universal Healing Energy (sometimes referred to as white healing light). This is followed by a “reading” of the chakras as the practitioner senses which chakras are too open, too closed, or other specific qualities held within the chakra itself. As all life around us can be influenced by intention, so too can the energetic body be influenced. A thought form is energy, the healing light is energy, chakras are energy. When dealing with energy, the intention to create a change, or to heal, perpetuates that thought into action. Clients often remark about the beautiful arrangement of colors they experience during the session.
The healing session is sealed with a guided meditation that enables the client to become a very active participant in the process. While the client continues to remain quiet and relaxed on the table, the practitioner guides the clients’ thoughts through their energetic body, focusing on balancing the chakras.
The word chakra (pronounced shock-ra or chock-ra) means wheel or disk in Sanskrit. It is a center of spinning energy which nourishes the physical body. Its vitality is directly related to our social, sexual and spiritual energy. There are seven main chakras in the body, located in very specific places. These chakras are directly linked to certain glands and also govern specific physical structures in the body. When an emotional event occurs in a person’s life, the energy or feelings from that event influence the state of the chakra. If the energy is positive, the chakra benefits. If the energy from that event is negative, the chakra becomes imbalanced. In short, our emotions have an effect on our chakras and our chakras have an effect on our physical bodies. The imbalance of a chakra doesn’t ordinarily occur in response to a single event; rather it’s the repetition of similar events without relief that eventually will cause the chakra to become too closed, too open, or imperfect. We need to strive to keep our lives, our thoughts, and our actions positive and in balance. Too much or too little of anything will put us out of balance and eventually will manifest into a physical malfunction.

This center will shut down from grief and unexpressed feelings such as anger and fear. It is compromised when we are dishonest, maligning, or gossip about others.

This is the center where we experience and know God as an active presence in our lives, and follow His ways. Governs: Cranium, top of head, central nervous system.
