seated woman with colored chakras

As an energy healer, I am often called to help people find balance in their bodies by clearing and charging their chakras.  For those of you who may not have an energy healer near you, you can use this resource to balance your chakras yourself.

Chakras are “wheels” of spinning energy centers in our bodies. When out of balance we might have headaches or feel “not like myself.”  Sometimes we’ll become ill and not be able to shake it.  Or we might just feel out of balance – something’s wrong but we can’t put our finger on it.

To learn how to balance your chakras yourself you can use the chart below. It has information about each chakra, which essential oil to use to open and clear the chakra, a suggested tarot card on which to meditate to energize the chakra, and crystals that you can place on each chakra to bring it into balance.

You can purchase the suggested Essential Oil by clicking on its name in the text below. You will be taken to my Essential Oil website. Click SHOP at the top of the webpage and search for the oil by name. Add the oil to your bag and check out.
