3 Chakra Healing Myths Busted Right Open

3 Chakra Healing Myths Busted Right Open
If you visit an upscale day spa, you might notice a “chakra balancing” treatment on the list of services.

You may not be sure what your chakras were, or if they needed balancing, but it’s definitely intriguing! 

Maybe you have even had your chakras dowsed with a pendulum. 

Watching a crystal spin above your heart area is interesting, and it’s not just a party trick. 

I have hands-on experience. Allow me to give you a little insight before you slap down the cash for a treatment that you don’t really know if you need. 

Your chakra system comprises seven main energy centres that live along the spinal column. 

Although they are less dense than tissue or bone, they are one of the major ways that your body receives energy from the Universal Energy Field and assimilates it for your use. 

The energy centres govern many aspects of your physiology, including organ systems and psychological tendencies, and reflect the well-being of the individual. 

Each has a frequency, a colour and a sound, moving in a clockwise direction. 

I know it’s weird to understand the nonphysical parts of you, so think of each chakra like a vortex or funnel, which is a few inches wide at the top, and the motion of this vortex pulls energy down the funnel and into the body. 

There is a front and rear aspect for each chakra, and they extend into your energy field a few inches above the body on certain points along the spinal column. 

Myth #1 - Chakras are supposed to be balanced and perfect


Many of the diagrams in books or online show the seven major chakras as they would be in an ideal world - perfect. 

They are all a similar shape, size and spin effortlessly with a colourful glow specific to each chakra. 

We live in the real world and hopefully understand that nothing is perfect. 

The real world is messy, unpredictable and above all else, constantly changing. 

This is also how your chakras behave. They are flexible and responsive, adjusting to psychological and physical factors, which affect us every day. 

Your chakras have a baseline unique to you and reflects your current emotional and physical patterns, but this baseline can change over time as you grow and change. 

Insisting that your chakras always be “perfect” is not productive in the real world. It’s important to honour where you are in your process and to encourage opening and stability, no matter how you measure up to a diagram or picture in a book. 

You are not a picture. 

When you are on a healing table and a practitioner balances your chakras, he or she is imposing a mental ideal on your very real physiology. 

They may not be respecting where you are in your process and might force your chakras to be more open than they are naturally capable of in that moment. 

After the treatment, your chakra system probably won’t be able to integrate and hold the work that they tried to impose on you. 

Your chakras will go back to where they were before the treatment and may be a little wonky for a bit. 

Myth #2 - Balancing my chakras will improve my health


It might be easy to think if my chakra system affects my organs, then I will be healthier if my chakras are perfect. 

Unfortunately, it’s not that easy. The chakras are evidence of where you are physically, emotionally and psychologically, and it is only by working on those issues that your chakras will shift and change. 

Believe me, if there were a magic switch that could make you perfect, I’d turn it on for you, but true healing requires a shift in consciousness. 

Yeah, I said it. Be intimately involved in your own healing process to reap the rewards. 

No one can do it for you. When you experience illness, it is your body calling out for you to pay attention. 

Honour it. Listen to it. The answers you need for your healing will come through your consciousness, not just your chakras. 

Get to know yourself, and you’ll move through your own health issues, rather than giving that job to someone else. 

Myth #3 - I have no power over my chakras. 


Most people think they have no real authority over their physiology. We are constantly turning to experts to tell us what is wrong with us and how to fix it. 

While there is much that a healer can do to help you understand where you are and to help you along the way, it is up to you to change the beliefs that are negatively affecting you. 

There are lots of simple exercises, similar to many common yoga postures, which people have used for centuries to shift the psychological or physiological health of an area governed by a chakra. 

Sometimes all it takes to shift a negative or unhealthy pattern is just giving it some positive attention and a concerted effort to move toward something healthier. 

For instance, if you are experiencing a sluggish second chakra and not feeling that romantic spark toward your partner, having that chakra balanced will have some effect on your love life, but not as much as if you practise something like belly dancing. 

Get that part of the body moving for yourself and your chakras will respond in kind. 

Another person can’t change your life for you, especially if you have invested behaviours and beliefs in a particular issue for many years. 

Actively working with your issues, however, will positively reflect in your entire chakra system, and you will feel better on many levels. 

So the next time you’re in a spa, get the Mani/Pedi, and skip the chakra balancing...
