Chakra Therapy

The word "Chakra" is Sanskrit for wheel or disk and signifies one of seven basic energy centers in the body. Each of these centers correlates to major nerve ganglia branching forth from the spinal column. In addition, the Chakras also correlate to levels of consciousness, archetypal elements, developmental stages of life, colors, sounds, body functions, and much much more.

Dis-eases tend to point to the region of the body that is governed by that Chakra. This allows us to see where the energy is "stagnant". This energy is connected with our physical body through seven centers. These centers represent our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. When these centers are healthy and in balance, then we are the equivalent. Below is a brief description of each chakra.


"The Chakra are stations along the central axis of your being. Each one is a point at which energy can be expressed in a certain set of actions, attitudes and emotions. The Chakra are a map of the soul which you must move along for healing to happen." - Rudolph Balantine, MD.

This chakra gives you determination, grounds you and aids in survival in the physical realms.

When this chakra is balanced, the masculine and feminine energy work together to make you strong and vital, when it is not balanced, the feminine aspects disappear and you can become overbearing and have difficulty with the ego.

Accessing Your Needs
In order to balance your energy points with color you first must access if your energy center points are balanced or unbalanced. Based on the Physical/Mental/Emotional attitudes causing the unbalance, you can access the most prominent color needed. This is why Holistic Healing seeks the metaphysical cause behind the physical problem.

ĽAn underactive chakra is usually one in which the energy is blocked or congested. The energy does not flow freely through the physical system. If it is congested ,blocked, underactive, we lack the energy to perform our daily functions. An application of color can help to stimulate the chakra into a balanced state.

ĽAn overactive chakra is one in which overstimulation occurs. There is too much energy being drawn in and out of the center, aggravating a specific condition. An application of the complementary or opposite color is used.


The general rule for the chakra: If the chakra is underactive, an application of its basic color is used. If the chakra is overactive, then the application of the complementary or opposite color is used.http://www.peacefulmind.com/energy_medicine.htm#Chakra
