What are Chakras and where are they located
We have seven main chakras which make up part of our energetic body. When these chakras are open and balanced, energy can flow freely through our bodies and minds. When any of these energy centers are blocked, it leads to stagnation and can contribute to a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. It’s important we practice regular chakra healing techniques, to counteract the probelms which commonly occur with unbalanced chakras.
These are our seven main chakras which are part of a larger energetic system:
CHAKRA BALANCING SESSION
15-minute sound bowl session for chakra healing
Sit back and relax, pop in your headphones and listen to this chakra balancing meditation using Tibetan singing bowls. The natural tones created by these crystal bowls resonate with each of your chakras, while you simply breathe deeply and relax.
14-minute sound tuning fork session for chakra healing
Another sound healing technique for chakra balancing using a tuning fork which produces a deep, earth reverberating tone with beneficial overtones when activated. It is a grounding tone. The tuning fork plays specific tones from the solfeggio scales which resonate with each of the seven chakras. You can read more about the solfeggio scales on the Sound Healing section of this site.
