Chakra Balancing

Keeping Your Chakras Balanced

Open and balanced chakras allow your chi (life energy) to flow naturally. It is not unusual to have one or two chakras off-balance from day to day. Many things can offset a chakra's balance, an illness, relationship issues, work worries, etc. 

When that happens the remaining chakras pick up the workload so your may not even be aware that you are not functioning on full pistons. But, when a chakra shuts down permanently, it effects the chakra system dramatically. Each chakra has its own purpose and needs to do its part, or the whole team will feel the strain. As result, your health will be compromised.

Unblocking problematic chakras and bringing them into balance is key for your optimal health and well-being. An energy medicine practitioner trained in manipulating the energy flow of energy can assist you in getting misaligned chakras back to functioning properly. It may take one or more appointments with a practitioner to get your energy levels up to par. Afterwards, in order to maintain their balance there are a variety of healthy actions you can take to help keep your chakras open and functioning properly.

Drumming activates the heart chakra, thereby balancing the descending higher chakra energies against the ascending lower chakra frequencies. From the heart, these harmonious energies resonate outward into the web of life. Researchers have found that drum rhythms affect the heartbeat. The heart's pulse may speed up, slow down, or gradually entrain with the pulsation of a drum rhythm until they are locked in perfect synchronization.
