Chakra Cleaning: Chakra balancing restores the balance between the chakras, as blockages in a chakra always affect several chakras.
Chakra work: Balancing the chakras
The chakras and the energy bodies are a system that interacts strongly. If one or more chakras are disturbed in their function, this is often compensated by other chakras. In addition, problems in a chakra almost always affect the above and the underlying chakra. In addition, there is a resonant chakra for each chakra that is often affected by a disturbance as well.
The chakras should not be considered as individual parts but as aspects of a unified whole. Man, figuratively speaking, is not a machine in which only individual parts can be repaired, but a holistic and finely balanced system, in which all aspects interact and in which several aspects should always be considered simultaneously if one is sustainable Would like to achieve healing and transformation.
The human energy system undergoes various levels of development or vibration during spiritual development. Ideally, all the chakras develop equally and harmoniously, but this is rarely the case in practice. So it may be that the system gets temporarily out of balance, especially in healing phases. Here a chakra compensation can help.
Chakra balancing: Restore harmony
A chakra balance is a meditation, therapy, or treatment that works with multiple or all chakras and attempts to restore a state of balance and harmony. In the process, weak chakras are strengthened and opened, and possibly overburdened chakras are accompanied back into a harmonious function.
Various energetic healing methods (such as Reiki) offer chakra balancing. Such “external” treatments, however, will have a little lasting effect in my eyes, unless one works with one’s own consciousness, or rather, above all.
Chakra Compensation in Chakra Therapy
In case of a severe blockage in a particular chakra, which can be identified by strong symptoms in the physical and mental aspects of this chakra, it is often inadvisable to approach this chakra individually. Instead, always treat three chakras: the symptom chakra and the two adjacent chakras. This results in faster results in most cases and allows for gentler and more harmonious healing. So understood, any chakra healing or therapy should include chakra balancing.
Chakra balancing and chakras function
As the word chakra suggests, the chakras may be impaired in their function in various ways. Thus, the question can first be asked as to whether the chakra has a subfunction or, on the contrary, is perhaps even overburdened with energy. Chakras are not only open or closed, as some literature seems to suggest, but their harmonic function depends strongly on interactions and the degree of development of the whole system.
A first general distinction can be made by determining the energetic state of a chakra:
- Harmonious Function
The chakra may not be fully open but performs its function in a healthy, harmonious manner according to the developmental state of the whole system. This chakra can be considered and used as a stabilizing pole during Chakra healing.
- Unterfunktion (blockade)
The function of the chakra is severely impaired, it is energetically cut off and underserved and therefore can not fulfil its function. As a result, problems with the related physical aspects are to be expected and deficient development of mental qualities, which this “symptom” chakra stands for.
- Overload (congestion)
While the symptom-facing chakra is underserved or completely cut off, one or both directly adjacent major chakras show blockage and congestion of life energy, as in a dam. These chakras are then usually heavily overloaded or überenergetisiert. This results in a clear discordance between the chakras and in the overall system. The two blocking chakras are not overly open, but overloaded. This overemphasis of the two adjacent chakras can be expressed in the personality in such a way that a chakra personality strongly focused on it develops. There is a possibility for this time that the actual positive qualities of these chakras are distorted into their darker sides.
Overview: mental qualities of the chakras
The following table is intended to illustrate the principle using the example of some mental qualities of the chakras. It is not complete, but only serves the deeper understanding.
Since the principle is intuitively easier for some people to understand about the associated elements, these are indicated in the chakra.
|Security, stability, material creation, physical expression||Uncertainty, instability, fear of survival, flight from the body||Rigidity, fear of change, strong attachment to the body and physical security such as possessions, food, family, jumpiness|
|The flow of creative life energy,|
spiritual creation, passion, healthy emotions, balanced sexuality, liveliness
|Dispassion, joylessness seems brittle, wooden, lifeless||Plaything of own desires and longings, unconscious emotionality, drive-controlled|
|Strength, self-esteem, healthy personality structure||Victim mentality, lack of self-esteem, influenceable, will-less||Power and control mania, morbid ambition, narcissism|
|Love for yourself and others, acceptance, compassion, devotion, transcendence||Emotional coldness, resentment, inability to relate, lack of love||Self-abandonment, limit loss, self-exploitation, relational addiction|
|Expression, communication, truth||Inability or fear to express oneself||Self-staging, meaningless talk, addiction, to be the centre of attention|
|Intuition, change to other states of consciousness||Trapped in concepts of understanding, lack of confidence in one’s own intuition||Delusions, hallucinations, loss of reality psychoses|
|Determination, vocation, communication with the soul and the whole||Sense of meaning and meaninglessness of life||Exaggeration of one’s spiritual development and meaning up to the idea of a “Redeemer Mission”. Accidents and drugs can lead to unwanted out-of-body experiences and coma.|
Balance the chakras: It can be observed that symptoms in a chakra are energetically closely related to the two adjacent chakras. Therefore, it is advisable to always work with these three chakras in targeted chakra compensation at the same time.
In case of an overload, it should be noted that it is not necessarily advisable to strain an already overburdened chakra even further. In many cases, in such cases, the chakra should first be strengthened above or below. It should also be remembered that all healing advice that is generally considered positive for a particular chakra is usually related to a hypofunction. On the other hand, in the event of over-functioning, some of these measures may also be counterproductive.
Many chakra therapies are suitable for chakra balancing, including smoking, aromatherapy, colour therapy, gemstone therapy, yoga, pranayama, and singing bowl therapy.
For severe symptoms in a chakra, as described above, the disharmonies of the two adjacent chakras should first be solved – so that one can then concentrate more on the chakra of the heart note. To open and strengthen this chakra in case of a hypofunction, it is then possible to make use of the corresponding detailed recommendations:
Chakra Meditation: Chakra Compensation
The following meditation is a simple form of chakra balancing suitable for daily meditation that balances the chakras by connecting to higher vibrational levels. It can be easily carried out by anyone and can be used to compensate for minor imbalances.
This guide harmonizes the chakras about the connection to the eighth chakra. Alternatively, one can also work with the earth energies (see the instructions in the meditations on the individual chakras), which can be easier and more effective especially at the beginning.
If you perform the chakra basic meditation on all chakras one after the other, it also has a balancing effect.
Pre-Exercise: Friction Breath
This meditation uses a special breathing technique, the so-called Friction Breath.
The tongue tip is either placed on the palate or directly behind the teeth, the lower jaw is relaxed. When breathing, you allow the air to make a sharp noise in your throat. This calms the mind and has a positive effect on the neck and forehead chakra.
Of course, if this way of breathing is uncomfortable for you, meditation will work without it, or you may want to experiment with it anyway.
Principle of meditation
In this meditation, one breathes alternately into the eighth chakra (above the crown chakra) and one of the chakras.
During inhalation, pure light is inhaled into the eighth chakra from above, and during exhalation, this energy flows into the respective chakra.
With the next inhalation, the energy is breathed back up into the eighth chakra, resulting in a full circle.
Instructions Chakra compensation
Go to a quiet, undisturbed place where you like to be. Sit in either the lotus flower seat, the cross-legged seat or on a chair. Lay your hands palm-down on your knees or fold them in your lap. Make sure you keep your posture as straight as possible. Close your eyes now.
- Bring your concentration over your crown chakra and breathe pure light from above into this area. Allow a natural break after inhalation, feel the energy building up.
- Go with your attention to your crown chakra. Breathe the energy down into your crown chakra, allowing the chakra to open and relax. Allow again a natural break after exhalation. Let the chakra relax and expand.
- Bring your concentration back over your crown chakra and breathe in as before.
- Go with your attention to your forehead chakra. Breathe in the energy and through the entire head.
- Bring your concentration back over the crown chakra. At the same time, make a circle from the back of the frontal chakra and let pure light down from above.
- Now go with your attention to your throat chakra and proceed as in the front chakra.
- Repeat this until the root chakra and then work your way up again until you have returned to the crown chakra.
Relax now and feel the after effects. Let yourself sink deeply into meditation.
After a pleasant time, open your eyes and slowly become aware of your surroundings.
