Our chakras function to keep us in balance, they are responsible for our general sense of well being. When a chakra is out of balance it affects us physically. We need to be aware that we create imbalance in our chakra’s through our thought patterns first. Illness in the body is the last manifestation of an emotional block or issue.


There are times when a chakra may be damaged due to various reasons and Colour Therapy can remedy its impaired function.  Reiki, Crystal balancing, Reflexology, Yoga or Qi Kung are but a few other ways to balance your chakra system. Daily meditation and visualizations will also bring your chakra system into balance. Bring your awareness to keeping your energy system clear. Positive affirmations for a chakra you are aware you have issues with will also help to shift a block.
