This is an introduction to chakra healing.
After reading this you will have a basic understanding of the Chakras and be ready to start healing your Chakras for improved health and wellbeing.
The word chakra means wheel of light in the language of Sanskrit, The chakras are the body's internal energy centres, and are aligned vertically near the spine. Energy enters the body through the head (heaven) and the base (earth). The seven chakras are vortex points where these forces mingle, with each producing a distinctive energy pattern. The purpose of these chakras is to absorb, transform and distribute the body's internal energy, known by terms such as prana, life force or chi. Specific organs and body parts are associated with each chakra, as well as corresponding behavioural, emotional and personality patterns. It is important to note that the chakras are in constant interplay, and cannot really be separated.
The seven chakras are connected with physical, mental, and emotional development and health. In a healthy person, all the chakras are balanced and energy flows freely and naturally through them. Energy can sometimes flow too strongly or too weakly, or be blocked entirely. If this happens in one or more of the chakras, there will be a corresponding distortion or disharmony which affects patterns of health.
There are many ways to heal your chakras, but the most common ways are with Yoga Postures, Essential Oils, Crystals, Meditation and Mantras.
The chakras govern your everyday reality and how you react or respond to the world around you. Although they appear to be knee jerk reactions to inner states of being such as your emotions or habits. The chakras also affect how well or otherwise your body, emotions and mind function. The chakras in the lower body correspond to the physical level or being, those in the upper body to the emotional and from the throat upwards to the skull is the mental level. They work in conjunction with the seven auric bodies.
Each chakra is aligned with the organs, systems and endocrinology of the physical body, but each chakra is also aligned with a sense, such as touch, sight etc. The chakras are not static, they have the capacity for evolution/change.
An energy blockage in any of your chakras can cause you to suffer from physical, emotional, mental and spiritual ailments.
Physical illness is often the result of psychological challenges. Your mental, emotional and physical health must all be in perfect balance (homeostasis) to function at their peak performance. The chakras work to create and preserve that balance.
Knowing how to maintain the balance within your chakras and how you are affected by them is vital. If the chakras are in proper alignment many ailments can be overcome or effectively managed.
Every person possesses six energy fields that surrounds the physical body, which are your auras. It is formed of coloured light. The brilliance, shade and size of the aura varies according to the state of your chakras.
Between the base of your spine and the top of your head, there are seven (7) major chakras. Each auric body is associate with one chakra. When opening and balancing your chakras you are healing, repairing and strengthening your auras. For descriptions of each of the auric bodies and their associated chakras please click here
Complementary and analogous colours and the chakras. The chakras aren't centred in only one spot on or in the body. While the specific colours of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet have long been associated with the seven traditional chakras. There is still debate on the actual colours relating to each chakra, as each physical body has a slight variation in frequency; so the resonance of the colour and the crystals associated with that colour will affect each person in subtle different ways.
Therefore you may find that a complementary or an analogous colour is more useful for you.
Colours that are opposite each other on the color wheel are considered to be complementary colors (example: red and green).
Analogous color schemes use colours that are next to each other on the color wheel. (example: yellow/green, green, and green/blue.
If you wish to brighten the solar plexus chakra you could use amber and amethyst.
If you wish to strengthen the solar plexus chakra you could use carnelian, amber and peridot.
Gaia Gateway chakra
The Gaia Gateway chakra is also known as the sphere of anchoring light.
It is located about an arms length below your feet, below the earth star chakra.
It has a higher resonance than the earth star chakra, it anchors high frequency light into the physical body and the body of the Earth. Without this chakra being energised and healed, higher vibrational energy can't be assimilated and grounded. It adjusts your electromagnetic frequency so that it remains in harmonic resonance with that of the planet and facilitates an uplift in your own personal resonance. This chakra together with the stellar gateway, allows kundalini energy to travel up the spine, into the higher chakras over the head, and then cascades down through the auric bodies into the gaia gateway chakra. The energy then travels out in the cells and intercellular spaces of the physical and auric bodies. This chakra connects you to the soul and spirit of the planet, Gaia and to Mother Earth.
When the Gaia gateway is energised and healed this chakra helps you to protect yourself from entity attachment and lower energies, by holding you gently in incarnation and in contact with the planet. It eases the more extreme symptoms of the rise of kundalini energy.Some benefits of linking with the Gaia gateway chakra include:
You may have problems activating your kundalini energy and higher consciousness.

Earth star chakra
The earth star chakra is not a part of your physical body like the other seven chakras. It’s actually located about 30 cm below your feet, and makes up part of your etheric body. It connects directly to the core of the earth and to Gaia.
The earth star chakra is a little different from the base chakra in a few ways:
You need to balance this chakra if you spend your time in a high tech environment, computers, mobile phones, television etc, the electromagnetic emissions from these devices adversely affect your ability to maintain a connection with the Earth and therefore keep you grounded on this plane of existence.

You will be practical and operate well in everyday reality but will also be open to assimilating higher dimensional energies.

A blocked or closed earth star chakra easily picks up adverse environmental factors such as geopathic stress and toxic pollutants. It is highly sensitive to electromagnetic energy as it governs the electrical systems of the body and is your connection to the planet through the soles of your feet.
A blocked earth star chakra leads to little body awareness, there can be feelings of helplessness and being ungrounded accompanied by an inability to function practically in the world. You will be unable to assimilate higher dimensional energies. Disruptions in the earth star chakra can lead to discomfort in the physical body, a sense of not belonging on the planet.

When you are capable of wholeheartedly loving yourself you can enter into a healthy relationship with yourself and others because you aren't using old wounds to get love for your inner child.
When your heart chakra is in balance you live feeling safe and therefore compassionate. This is the basis of altruism, generosity and kindness. There is no judgement when the heart chakra is in this condition. Cooperation rather than competition flourishes. This chakra is the site of unselfish self love, if you can't love yourself. then you can't love others or receive their love.
Malfunction of the heart chakra can present as a fear of loneliness, commitment or betrayal which can lead to jealousy, bitterness and anger. If your heart chakra is out of balance feelings such as jealousy are common and there is a resistance to change. You will be ruled by your emotions, reacting rather than responding. Happiness, sadness, anger and grief are overwhelming. Feelings and emotions are not processed and may be projected out to the world seen in the actions of others.
If this chakra is closed and out of balance if you are in a relationship you will always be the giver, not the receiver as you don't feel that you deserve to be loved. Intimacy can be a huge challenge when the heart chakra is out of balance as you will feel undervalued and misunderstood. Emotions such as grief, anger, hatred, greed, envy and guilt are held onto, even nurtured. Feelings of inferiority, a sense of being unlovable and unloved, leads to a fear of rejection and a desperate desire not to be alone, but those feelings push other people away. When out of balance or closed this chakra holds onto past life pain and heartbreak.

This chakra is all about communication and it can affect how valued and nurtured you feel. It is where you express yourself, including strongly felt feelings and emotions that come from the heart or solar plexus chakras as well as thoughts.
If the chakra is balanced and open you will be able to freely express your opinions and be prepared to enter into a debate about them and compromise or adjust them with ease if you feel that it is appropriate. This chakra has a lot to do with your willpower and choices that arise in your life. It mediates your contact with the outside world.
The throat chakra is responsible for your mouth, respiratory and nervous systems, skin, parathyroid, tongue, tonsils, speech, and body language. It also manages the metabolism, hearing, ears, throat neck, teeth, jaw, shoulders, arms, nose and thyroid.
If it is out of balance then there is no outlet for your feelings and thoughts, it can lead to psychosomatic disease. It can also lead to speaking what you think others want to hear rather than being honest and sharing your heart felt truth. You may feel that you have no right to express an opinion.
An out of balance throat chakra creates a chatterbox who speaks unthinkingly, often to block out unacceptable feelings rising up from the solar plexus. Opinions, thoughts and feelings are blurted out indiscriminately. Or it can create a control freak who needs to be in charge and uses words to control how others think and feel, blocking out their emotions. You also may be too accepting of other people's views, lacking the capacity to reason things out for yourself. The energy from the throat chakra may pour back down into the heart chakra, creating a tendency to be over loving and over compensating.

You may suffer from extreme shyness or believe that other people won't value or will reject what you have to say and any offers of friendship. You will fear being judged and found wanting and you will be unable to defend yourself.
This chakra is the area of choice and will. Every choice that you make has consequences, sometimes they are instant and then you understand the power of choice. When you respond with the trite phrase "it's not my fault or I didn't mean to" you are absolving yourself of any responsibility for your actions, this is a sign of a blocked throat chakra. This energy centre is the bridge that helps you reconcile your logic centre and your emotions. It is the area of speech and self expression.
Emotional signs of an out of balance throat chakra can include strength of will, addiction, egotism, judgemental, critical, lack of faith and a limited capacity to make decisions.
