How to Heal and Balance Chakras

Part 2 of the workshop at Wayist Center for Spiritual Energy

You know what are charas, and where the chakras are, and where some imbalances might be. These imbalances are evident through your emotions or in physical symptoms and sensitivities. But now we’re going to move on to how to heal and balance chakras.

Self-healing the Individual Chakras

Luckily, there are some very simple things you can do, and they don’t have to cost the earth. Many of them are free and you won’t have to move a muscle! Read on for some things you can do to balance each chakra and some general things you can do to align your chakras on a regular basis:

Move your body when you can- yoga is fantastic for aligning the chakras, especially kundalini yoga
book yourself in for a massage, Reiki, Energetic Healing or AcuEnergetics session
