I have found that many, if not all, of my clients suffer from stress and this directly affects the energy within their physical bodies. They experience pain, discomfort, or illness and often feel out of control because they are unable to think clearly.
With that in mind, I would like to share with you a technique I have found very helpful to balance your internal energies.
We live in a world of chronic stress.
There is little down time, we are connected 24/7, and many of us are feeling stuck, overwhelmed and anxious. You may be experiencing this, or know someone who is.
Many of my clients can totally relate. They feel like they are on a hamster wheel and have no idea how to get off or even how to slow down.
I see this every day in my office – people are looking for ways to slow down and enjoy life.
To help them through their stress, I teach my clients how to gain control by letting go of old emotional hurts, pains or trauma. I teach them how to quickly get into a calm, present moment state of mind and how to meditate using self-hypnosis.
We discuss gratitude and setting positive intentions to begin to take back personal control over their life experience.
One very powerful technique I teach them to use daily is Chakra Balancing.
You may have heard of Chi or Universal Life Force. This is taught in Eastern medicine and philosophy. This chi or energy flows through all living things. It flows through our bodies. We cannot see it, but we know it is there, it flows through and around us.
When we are stressed our energy flow can be affected.
You may experience shoulder or neck tension when you are stressed. You might know someone who gets stress headaches or can’t think when they are stressed.
The first thing I do is check my client’s chakras or chi as we begin to work together. 9 times out of 10 their energies are not flowing easily.
I take time right then to help them to open up the energy flow as we begin our work together. When we open our chakras and allow the energies to flow we feel grounded, emotionally stronger and happier.
You can use this Chakra Balancing technique anywhere, anytime.
The more you practice the easier it will become and you will begin to notice positive results.
Here’s how to perform chakra balancing for yourself:
It is helpful to begin this technique in a quiet setting where you can concentrate and visualize.
Begin by taking 3 nice big belly breaths. Close your eyes and imagine the energy within your body. This energy moves through your body and connects you with the earth.
Imagine you have an energy cord traveling all the way down your body. It moves like a laser beam, down your back, down through your legs and leaves your body through your feet. Your energy laser beam moves easily and effortlessly through the floor, through the foundation of your home and into the earth below.
Imagine it continuing down through the many layers of the earth. Your energy cord travels down through the soil, the sand, the clay, down through the rock and water, travelling deep, deep into the earth and spreading out in many directions like a root of a very tall tree.
Imagine just as a tall tree would gather vital nutrients for its health, your energy cord gathers vital energy necessary for your health and well-being. Imagine this energy travelling up, through the layers of the earth and foundation of your home and up through the floor.
Imagine this energy beginning to enter your feet. As it enters your feet it is a beautiful red color and brings a sense of strength, courage, and being grounded. This red energy moves up into your legs and into your reproductive area.
As your energy continues to move upward to the sacral area, that is the space below the navel, it becomes a beautiful orange color. As it moves through this area, touching all the muscles, nerves, cells, tissue and organs it brings a sense of safety, security and sturdiness.
As your energy continues to move upward to the midriff or solar plex area it becomes a bright beautiful yellow. This yellow energy moves through this area touching all organs, muscles, nerves, cells and tissue bringing a sense of contentment and happiness.
Now, notice this energy changing to an emerald green as it moves upward to your heart and lungs. This green energy connects you with healing love, self-love, as it moves through the front, back, up to your shoulders and down your arms into your hands.
This beautiful healing love energy continues to move upward and as it reaches your neck and throat, it becomes an aqua blue. Moving through this area, into your chin, mouth, nose, cheeks, sinus, and ears it brings clarity for communication. This is clarity to speak your truth from your authentic self and to really listen and possibly gain a different perspective.
As this energy moves into the eyes it becomes a beautiful violet. This violet energy moves into your forehead, top of your head, back of your head and all parts of your brain. The violet energy opens you up to all ideas, intuition, inspiration, inner knowing and inner guidance.
Allow all these energies to move to the crown of your head and imagine a golden opening. All the energies move out the crown opening and create a protective bubble around your body. All the energies continue to move easily and effortlessly up and down and around your body.
If you have time to enjoy the quietness you have created that is perfect. Take a moment to notice how good you feel. Practice this technique daily. The more you practice the easier it will be for you to maintain energy balance.
