I began becoming more aware again of energy and chakras back in 2002 when I was first introduced to Reiki. While I do offer just Reiki sessions for those interested, my Intuitive Energy Healing sessions are a blend of Reiki, BodyTalk, BodyIntuitive, and other modalities I have learned over the years. Each modality I use in my sessions works with energy and our chakras.
Energy is all around us. From other people, plants, trees, animals, buildings, cars, food, etc. Everything carries their own energy. During a session your body might want to release energy you took on from another person or perhaps your environment is causing disharmony in your bodymind. Or maybe you need to be in better balance with your meridians, chakras, and/or the food you're eating.
The term chakra comes from the Sanskrit meaning “circle of movement.” Chakras are energy centers that run throughout our body and some exist outside of our bodies. There are over 114 chakras in the human body. We have 7 major chakras that are more well known and are given the most attention too: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown. These chakras run from the bottom of the tailbone all the way up to the top of the head. They each have their own symbol, color, emotion, element, meaning, and organ and/or endocrine association.
Our Chakras strive to work together to provide the right balance of energy for every part of the body, mind, and spirit, but for all of us our chakras are constantly needing help to come back into balance. When our chakras are open and balanced, energy can flow freely throughout our whole bodymind. When any of these energy centers are blocked, it leads to stagnation and can contribute to a variety of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues. Some reasons why chakras might become out of balance and get blocked are from stress, poor diet, low self esteem, suppressed anger, grief, illness, heartbreak, fear, anxiety, toxins, etc.
We also have minor chakras or secondary chakras that are just as important as major chakras. Minor chakras are tiny points that fuel the major chakras. There are over 300 acupuncture points in the body, all of which can be considered minor chakras. In BodyTalk and BodyIntuitive, we focus on 21 minor chakras: ears, eyes, nose, tip of tongue, shoulders, nipples, elbows, hips, genitals, hands, knees, and feet. Acupoints are also brought in to address more minor chakras in the body. Every minor chakra has a natural and pathological consciousness associated with it as well as related meridian(s). For example, the feet are all about the natural consciousness of standing up for oneself, grounding, and connectedness. The pathological consciousness of the feet are lacking vital earth energy, ungrounded intellect, and existential fear. The related meridian for the feet are the kidneys.
Getting regular energy balancing sessions is just one way to help balance your energy and chakras. Meditation, yoga, and breathwork are other great tools.
