INSIDE: Try these chakra balancing techniques to realign your chakras and help you to live a healthier and happier life. Chakra are the basis of the mind-body-spirit, and it is essential that we maintain them.
Have you been feeling off-kilter lately? If you've been experiencing fatigue, depression, or a general sense of disconnect from those around you, your chakras may be in need of realignment.
There are seven main chakras— or ‘wheels’ of energy— in our bodies, and each is positioned at a certain part of the body, whether it be at the base of the spine, the center of the chest, or the crown of the head. They react to our internal and external environments and play a role in our behavior.
Some chakra balancing benefits include improving your overall health and allowing your body to operate the way it was meant to.
Unfortunately, it is rare for our chakras to remain in balance without any effort on our part, and when we don’t actively work to maintain chakra alignment, it can cause a block.
Blockages in our chakras can be due to tension at work, stress at home, past trauma that has not been healed, or a lack of self-care and healthy lifestyle choices.
These blockages stop energy from being able to flow freely and will eventually cause emotional and physical illnesses if left untreated.
Some negative effects of blocked chakras include nervousness, insecurity, fatigue, migraines, depression, and a general inability to connect with friends and family.

Chakra Balancing Meditation
If you suspect your chakras need balancing, assess your feelings first and determine exactly where your negative emotions are coming from. When you understand where the problem is originating, you'll be better equipped to deal with it.
Chakra meditation can help to bring the issue you’re experiencing to the surface and soothe it.
There's no wrong way to meditate. If you don’t feel comfortable meditating on your own, try a guided meditation. These are great for beginners, especially those who struggle to concentrate.
Chakra Balancing Crystals
Crystals help to balance chakras by reenergizing and restoring them. You can choose to focus on individual chakras by selecting crystals that directly correspond to them.
Because every crystal has its own unique properties, they can be used strategically in order to get the best results. They also have such high-vibrational energies that just by keeping them nearby, like in your pocket or on your desk, you can start to feel the benefits right away.
Chakra balancing crystals should be specific to the chakra you want to work on. Our Chakra Crystals Healing Bag is an easy way to acquire a crystal for each chakra.
If you want to explore crystals more on your own, we've written many articles to help you choose the right crystals for each chakra:

For a general balancing session, or to substitute a missing crystal, use Clear Quartz. This is a great alternative to any crystal due to its translucent white hue containing every color in the spectrum.
Before starting your session, bring yourself into a deep state of relaxation. Soft music, dimmed lights, or lit candles can help you to destress. Once fully relaxed, start placing the crystals on your chakras in order to bring them into balance.
This does not need to be a long session, but be sure to allow yourself enough time to soak in the energy of the crystals while maintaining a peaceful mind.
Chakra Balancing Music
This is one of the easiest and most natural technique to balance your chakras. Each chakra has its own frequency. The best chakra music to use includes each frequency and will allow you to have a complete realignment.
Once you have picked your music, lay down and relax. You can use crystals by laying them on your body or placing them around you.
While the chakra balancing music plays, intentionally visualize the chakras spinning and becoming reenergized. It is also fine to just let your mind wander or go about your daily tasks as you listen to each of the different frequencies.
Chakra Balancing Essential Oils
Essential oils are a natural and effective way to balance your chakras, especially if you're low on time. Because these oils come from plants, their molecular composition allows them to be easily absorbed into the skin.
All of the chakra balancing essential oils have a relationship with a certain chakra, so do your research and be sure to pick the oil based on your needs.
There are several ways to use essential oils in chakra balancing. Depending on your desired outcome, try rubbing them on the soles of your feet, diffusing them during meditation, or mixing them with water and spraying them into the air.
Chakra Balancing Massage
These massages should include deep penetration of the tissue, reflexology, and end with some energy work specifically directed towards chakra opening and balancing.
The tissue massage will allow the receiver to reach a deep state of relaxation and allow the chakras to be unblocked and start to re-energize. The reflexology portion will provide relief to the soles of the feet and allow positive energy to be sent through the body up through the crown of the head.
Lastly, energy work will finish the process so you can be at your best self when the massage is over.
When looking for a chakra balancing massage, be sure to ask if these things will be included in order to get the best results.
Yoga for Chakra Balancing
Yoga is ideal for chakra cleansing and realignment. This practice helps to not only balance chakras, but it reduces the stress and negative feelings that cause the chakras to be blocked in the first place.
Try taking a class or start your own practice. There are plenty of guided yoga sessions available online, like this one! Make a habit out of completing short yoga practices in the morning in order to set up your day to be productive and rich in positive energy.
Another reason that yoga for chakra realignment is great is because you can include some of the other techniques mentioned above like chakra balancing music, essential oils, and crystals.
Chakra Balancing With Reiki
Reiki is a technique that helps to address imbalances throughout the body. It is a holistic approach from Japan that requires the expertise of a Reiki master.
The Reiki master goes through rigorous training, and once complete, they will be able to identify the blocked chakras by just floating their hands over another person's body. The master then works to unblock and balance the chakras by channeling energy through their hands onto the receiver.
Chakra balancing with Reiki helps to bring negative energy to the surface of the body and then release it so that the chakras can feel renewed and begin operating at full capacity.
There are many, many ways to unblock and balance your chakras. Choose one or more of the methods above, and you’ll be on your way to a happier, more balanced life!
