                What are Chakras and Chakra balancing?

There are seven chakras in the body that run along the spine. When we are ill, for example, our chakras get out of alignment or may become stagnant. Our life force energy is unable to flow and because of that our bodies suffer.

Stress, the inability to express our emotions, and a poor and/or unhealthy diet are just a few things that cause our Chakras to become unbalanced. In order to open them and bring them back in to balance, we need to invite them back to their natural vibration and frequency. Color, crystals, gems, sound, light, aromatherapy, and touch therapies are a few of the different techniques used to accomplish this.

What are the 7 Chakras?

The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine. Lower back pain, obesity and other weight problems, and an addictive behavior are good indications that this chakra needs balancing.

The Sacral Chakra is located at the sacrum in the lower abdomen. Problems associated with an unbalanced Sacral Chakra are gynecological (including infertility), lower back pain, low self-esteem, and kidney disorders.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is at the base of the sternum. Digestive problems, anger and emotional problems, as well as ulcers are examples of an imbalance of the Solar Plexus Chakra.

The Heart Chakra is the most important chakra. Located behind the heart, when this chakra isn't open and is unbalanced, hear problems, lung problems, immunity disorders, and becoming emotionally cold are some of the things experienced.

The Throat Chakra is in the throat. Sore throats, oral health issues such as teeth and gum problems, anxiety, and lack of creativity are among the signs that this chakra is out of whack and in need of balancing.

The Brow Chakra is also known as the "Third Eye" chakra. It's located between the brows. Dyslexia, headaches, and frustration are some of the problems one may experience when the brow chakra is not open or balanced.

There are two businesses in Ft. Worth that offers Chakra balancing services:

Owl's Clover is open on the weekends only. They are located at 3037 James Avenue. You should give them a call and make an appointment since they have limited hours of operation at (817)921-5809.

Psychic Eye Vision's also offers chakra balancing among other things. Their business is located at 4733 Camp Bowie Blvd. and can be reached by calling (817)377-0124 for more information or to make an appointment.

Chakra balancing can make you feel wonderful all over. Imagine all of those closed, out of balance chakras suddenly spinning around at just the right speed and in perfect balance, bringing with them well-being and harmony within your body.

If you would like to learn how to balance your chakras on your own, visit one of the local Barnes & Noble Bookstores. They have a variety of books and DVD's on the subject.
