by Janice Chan, Sound Healer & Kinesiologist

Ever feel a little off-kilter? Like your energy is sluggish, or unexpected emotions keep bubbling up? These could be signs of blocked chakras!  But don't worry, blocked chakras are incredibly common.

Imagine your chakras as spinning wheels of energy within your body. Each chakra governs specific aspects of your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. When these energy centers become blocked due to stress, past experiences, or negative thought patterns, it can disrupt the flow of energy and impact your overall health.

The good news? There are a multitude of ways to unblock your chakras and restore that sense of vibrant energy flow. And the best part? Many of these techniques can be easily practiced in the comfort of your own home, no trip to Ubud necessary!  This guide will explore these techniques, along with a powerful sound healing trick often used in Ubud for ultimate chakra balancing.

How to Unblock Your Chakras at Home:

Understanding Your Chakras: A Quick Guide

There are seven main chakras, each with a specific location in the body, a corresponding color, and a connection to various emotions and aspects of well-being. Here's a quick introduction:

  • Root Chakra (Base of the spine):  Associated with feelings of security, grounding, and stability. Color: Red.

  • Sacral Chakra (Lower abdomen):  Governs creativity, sensuality, and our connection to pleasure. Color: Orange.

  • Solar Plexus Chakra (Upper abdomen):  The seat of our personal power, confidence, and self-esteem. Color: Yellow.

  • Heart Chakra (Center of the chest):  Represents love, compassion, and our ability to give and receive love. Color: Green.

  • Throat Chakra (Throat):  Governs communication, self-expression, and speaking our truth. Color: Blue.

  • Third Eye Chakra (Brow area):  Associated with intuition, wisdom, and our connection to the higher self. Color: Indigo.

  • Crown Chakra (Top of the head):  Represents our connection to spirituality, enlightenment, and universal consciousness. Color: Violet.

Remember, this is just a basic overview. Each chakra has a whole world of exploration waiting to be discovered!

6 Techniques to Unblock Your Chakras at Home

Now, let's dive into the fun part – practical techniques you can use to unblock your chakras and restore that harmonious energy flow!

1. Chakra Visualization: Seeing is Believing

The power of visualization is a potent tool for clearing blockages. Find a quiet space, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Focus on the specific chakra you want to work on. For example, if you're feeling a lack of confidence, visualize your solar plexus chakra (located in your upper abdomen) as a bright yellow sun, radiating warmth and power. See the light of the sun dissolving any blockages and filling you with a renewed sense of self-belief.

Here's a quote from Anodea Judith, a renowned chakra expert, that beautifully captures the power of visualization: "The body is a map of the mind, and the mind is a map of the body."

2. Journaling & Affirmations: Unmasking & Reprogramming

Journaling is an amazing tool for uncovering emotional blockages that might be contributing to a blocked chakra. Spend some time writing freely, allowing yourself to express any negative emotions or limiting beliefs that might be surfacing. Once you identify these patterns, you can begin to reprogram them with positive affirmations. For example, if you struggle with feelings of insecurity in your relationships, repeat affirmations like "I am worthy of love and belonging" or "I am confident and secure in myself."

3. Movement & Yoga: Get Your Body Moving

Yoga postures, known as asanas, are fantastic for stimulating and balancing your chakras. Specific poses target different energy centers. For example, warrior poses can help strengthen and ground the root chakra, while backbends can open the heart chakra and promote feelings of love and compassion.

4. Crystals & Gemstones: Nature's Little Helpers

Crystals have been used for centuries to promote healing and balance. Each crystal has a unique vibration that can resonate with a specific chakra. For example, carnelian, a fiery red stone, is associated with the sacral chakra and can help boost creativity and vitality.

5. Essential Oils & Aromatherapy: Breathe Deeply, Feel the Shift

Essential oils are the concentrated essence of a plant, and their therapeutic properties can be incredibly beneficial for chakra balancing. Inhaling the aroma of essential oils or applying them topically can stimulate different chakras. For example, the uplifting scent of lemongrass essential oil is associated with the solar plexus chakra and can help boost confidence and clarity.

6. Meditation: Finding Stillness Within

Meditation is a powerful tool for promoting inner peace and overall well-being. By quieting the mind and focusing your attention inwards, you create space for healing on all levels, including your chakras. There are many different meditation techniques, so find one that resonates with you. Here's a simple guided meditation to get you started:

  • Find a comfortable seated position with your back straight and eyes closed.

  • Take a few deep breaths, inhaling slowly through your nose and exhaling completely through your mouth.

  • Bring your awareness to your body and begin to relax your muscles, one by one.

  • Imagine a gentle white light filling your entire being, cleansing and purifying your energy field.

  • Focus on your breath, feeling the rise and fall of your chest with each inhale and exhale.

  • If any thoughts or emotions arise, simply acknowledge them and let them go, returning your focus to your breath.

  • Continue for 10-15 minutes, or as long as feels comfortable.

  • Gently bring your awareness back to the room and take a few moments to integrate your experience.

7. Sound Healing: Tuning Your Chakras with Vibrations

As a sound healer, I'm particularly passionate about the power of sound for balancing your chakras. Sound waves have a profound impact on our energy bodies, and specific frequencies can resonate with and unblock different chakras.

Here's a breakdown of some common sound healing instruments used for chakra balancing:

  • Singing bowls:  These beautiful instruments produce deep, resonant tones that can stimulate and clear blockages in the chakras. Different sized singing bowls correspond to different chakras, with larger bowls producing lower frequencies for the root chakra and smaller bowls producing higher frequencies for the higher chakras.

  • Tuning forks:  These calibrated instruments emit specific frequencies that target specific energy centers. By placing a tuning fork on or near the chakra you want to work on, you can introduce a balancing frequency that promotes healing.

Here are some resources to get you started with sound healing for chakras:

  • There are many guided sound healing meditations available online that use specific frequencies to target different chakras.

  • If you're interested in a more immersive experience, consider booking a sound healing session with a practitioner who can personalize the sounds to your specific needs.

Bonus Technique: Kinesiology – A Personalized Approach

As a kinesiologist, I use muscle testing techniques to identify imbalances in the body's energy system, including blocked chakras. Once a block is identified, I can recommend specific techniques, such as acupressure or chakra-balancing exercises, to help clear the blockage and restore energy flow.

Conclusion: Your Journey to Balanced Chakras

Remember, a balanced chakra system is the foundation for a healthy, vibrant life. Experiment with the techniques that resonate with you and create a personalized practice for maintaining balanced chakras. Don't be afraid to explore different modalities – the key is to find what works best for you on your unique healing journey.

May your chakras be clear and your energy flow strong!
