Recently, I became a Chakra balancing practitioner and learnt how to balance your chakras. The experience has really helped me understand how to recognise when my body is out of alignment energetically. So here are the 7 ways to tell if you are out of alignment, and what you can do about it!
1 – Root Chakra
Located at the base of your tailbone, this chakra is all about your survival instinct. If you are feeling a lack of security, you are panicking about bills, feel unsteady on your feet or are feeling constipated – this chakra needs work!
Red crystals, woody and earthy essential oils and walking barefoot will help.
2 – Sacral Chakra
As the name suggests, this chakra is all to do with your sacred energy, the divine feminine / masculine, your creativity, wisdom and reproductive organs. So if you are struggling to birth a creation, being, feel uninspired or unsure of your deeper knowing – it’s time to reconnect this chakra.
Orange crystals, orange food & drink, even orange jewellery or scarves are going to help here!
3 – Solar Plexus Chakra
This chakra is all to do with your self esteem & your digestive system. So bloating, IBS, feeling unworthy, not having enough faith in yourself…all these are solar plexus issues.
Yellow crystals, floral & woody essential oils, sunflowers, and time spent in the sun will help realign you.
4 – Heart Chakra
Clue is in the name for this one. Self love & heart issues tend to go hand in hand. So any feelings of self worth, lack of exercise, unhealthy diet – ANY self sabotaging will show up in this chakra.
Surprisingly, apart from rose quartz, what you are looking for is green crystals. The deeper the green, the more it’s about protecting yourself, the lighter green more about having to accept yourself. Roses, rose oil, and anything generally associated with the “feminine” will help here too.
