How to Balance Your Chakras for Mental & Physical Wellbeing (Energy centers)
Our Bodies have the ability to heal mentally and physically, is that not MAGICAL?With our lives being so busy how often do we stop to appreciate our internal energy, innate healing and lifeforce?
If we get a paper cut, it magically heals without us ‘doing’ anything. Most of us just take this for granted, BUT, it is actually magical
For some, it is God, for others it may be universal energy, prajna or chi. Whatever we may call it, we all need this innate energy to swirl in and out and through our bodies to maintain balance and wellbeing.
Chakra means "Wheel"
Our energy is made up of different levels with central energy centers called Chakras. The Chakras are located from the top of our heads to the bottom of our torso. There are 7 main chakras, however, there are also minor chakras at every joint.
These internal and external energies are interconnected and support each other to maintain balance within our physical body. If something is out of sync in the physical then it affects the energy body too and vice-versa. This includes our emotions and hormonal balance.
Our Chakras and energy body also affect our organs. For instance, one of the reasons heart disease is the number 1 killer may be because of the love-less attitude of mankind to mankind (so much hatred in the world right now). We can balance our heart chakras with love, understanding and kindness.

Balancing the Chakras is key to physical healthWithin kinesiology balancing the chakras is something that we feel is key to all kinds of symptoms. Having our chakras balanced can be a big deal in our energetical and physical health.
How can we balance the Chakras?One effective way is to lie down quietly and hold one hand about 2 inches (5cms) above and over the crown chakra and then hover the other hand over the other chakras one at a time.
You may feel, heat, tingling, pulsing, a coolness or no sensation at all, but continue to hover there until you take a nice sigh or you feel a difference, then move onto the next chakra all the way down to the root.
When you have done this with them all, you will have balanced your energies. However, sometimes you can relax more if someone else does this for you so you may like to swap with a friend or family member.
