Keeping our physical body alive, healthy and functioning well is a complex exercise in balancing.Read more
It’s called homeostasis, and it keeps all the chemicals, hormones, and processes of our body in harmony with each other. If our body deviates from a state of homeostasis, we’re in trouble. In the same way, our chakras must be in balance and aligned with each other. When our chakras (or any aspect of our energy system) are out of balance, it can have a profound impact on our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. When they are out of balance/alignment, both our bodies and our lives are likely to be out of balance as well. We may find that we are ill- or accident-prone, or that our lives are unhappy, unsatisfying, or chaotic. Sound healing expert Jonathan Goldman compares the body to a musical orchestra, where the individual players represent physical or energetic organs. If one “instrument” (like a chakra) gets off tune or out of balance, the sound of the entire orchestra (the health of your entire body) is off, and pretty soon the other players (other parts of your physical or energetic system) start to veer off-tune, too.
Chakra balancing, in concert with other techniques, often provides a great deal of emotional healing and spiritual healing and can help prevent physical disease, too. (Of course, if you have a serious physical or mental health concern you should seek the care of a physician or mental health professional.)
Many energy healers will spend a considerable amount of their time with you healing the chakras: opening, balancing, aligning and energizing them. A professional energy healing can be good not only for balancing the chakras, but also for you to get a feel for your own chakras.
