When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower.
Chakras are centers of energy, located on the midline of the body. There are seven of them, and they govern our psychological properties. The chakras located on the lower part of our body are our instinctual side, the highest ones our mental side.
However, the idea of balancing a specific chakra is only addressing part of the picture: Each chakra is part of a system that functions as a whole. If we look at how chakras work, we see that they are connected with each other and interact energetically. Therefore, when doing chakra balancing, it’s not only important to consider each chakra, but also the neighboring centers, and the energy through the whole system.
Stresses placed on us by the demands of life may result in interruptions and fluctuations in our energy flow and chakra imbalances.
The purpose of chakra balancing is to support a balanced flow that will sustain our overall level of energy. In our everyday life, we are subjected to sources of stress and demands that result in fluctuations in our energy level. Some may feel draining, others fulfilling or nourishing. Past events and experiences often influence how we feel and are in the world, therefore influencing how we manage our energy day-to-day.
Balancing assists in sufficient and consistent flow where there is not enough, regulating energy where there’s too much, and aligning where there’s distortion or displacement.
