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:

Healing the Chakra System as a Whole

  • Belinda Davidson’s ‘Chakra Cleanse for Busy People’ is my go-to meditation for healing the system as a whole. It is so thorough and I really notice a difference when I don’t do it.
  • Use chakra healing meditations to help you- click here for more information and links
  • Close your eyes and visualise each colour individually over the associated areas. start with the root chakra, and go through all the colours until you reach the crown chakra. You can visualise yourself in a ball of white light to finally balance your chakras.
  • 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

So, there we have it my darlings- I really, really hope this helps you. Please let me know if you have any questions- it might all seem a bit complicated, but once you become aware of the chakras and how they work, you’ll be able to heal them easily and intuitively.

Love and healing,

  1. Excellent post! Some fantastic tips here especially about eating the same color foods as the chakra you are healing.

  2. I’ve heard a lot about chakras and this is very interesting. I love that you included food, oils, and crystals. I will try some of these.

  3. Hi, If I am healing one chakra at a time with say a 20 min sound meditation. Can you tell me please after concentrating on the first chakra which I want to make strong do I mediate on the next chakra the following evening as each healing is 20mins I would not be able to clear them all at one time.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this.
