Until your root chakra becomes balanced you will not be able to balance the rest of the chakras.

We all have centers of energy called “Chakras” running through our bodies from head to toe.  This energy flow is essential for balance; however, often as we go about our busy overfull lives this energy can get displaced and become out of alignment.  It is believed by many that this displaced energy creates an imbalance in our systems that results in the health issues that seem to plague us today:  anxiety; tiredness; scattered, unfocused minds–and even more serious health problems. Spiritual teachers have lauded the importance of the Chakra System for centuries.  Interestingly, today more and more western physicians report actually feeling areas of heat during medical procedures that directly relate to the location of each of the Chakras.

The Chakra System consists of seven centers of energy–each one related to a specific psychological/health aspect of our lives: the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, The Third Eye Chakra and The Crown Chakra. The upper body Chakras relate directly to our mental aspects; the lower body Chakras relate directly to our instinctual aspects.

Balancing and clearing these energy centers each day is not only a simple practice but one that in itself can evoke a sense inner peace and quiet. I have found that it is important for me to take time each day in my busy life to sit with myself in peace or in meditation and clear the energy within these Chakras. When I do this I definitely feel more balanced, calmer and more focused. Whether you believe in the Chakra System or not, I feel like we are all becoming more in tune with the importance of taking a corner of the day to spend some time in peace and quiet–even if it is only five minutes.

There are several methods for clearing Chakra energy and re-balancing our bodies:

  1. Meditation
  2. Pendulum & Energy Work
  3. Crystals
  4. Essential Oils

I love all of these methods and often use more than on of them on a daily basis.  However, Essential Oils happen to be one of my favorite ways to realign my Chakras and re-energize myself. It’s a quick and simple method and they smell amazing.

Take a look through the gallery to learn more about each Chakra and which essential oils you can use to clear the energy field within each chakra.
