Reiki & Chakras, What Practitioners Know
When I started my reiki journey, I was super skeptical. I had heard all the buzz from people about how relaxing and healing it was. However, it wasn't until I experienced reiki for myself did my tune change.
If you know me or have taken one of my reiki classes, you will have heard this story.
It was sometime in 2012 when I had a nerve injury to my lower back (something I have struggled with on and off for most of my adult life.) I was in so much pain that I had taken days off of work and even taken a trip to my doctor's office to get some relief. Sadly none of that helped. I was basically laying on my bed curled in a ball of ouch!!
On day 3 or 4 of bed-bound torture, I received a phone call from a friend. She could hear the strain of pain in my voice, and of course, she asked what the trouble was. In response to her concern, I explained my stupid circumstance, and without pause, she asked me if I would like a reiki session. Despite my skepticism, I was willing to try anything.
Within a few hours, she arrived at my house and went straight to work on me. To tell you the truth, I have no idea how long the session was. But, what I can tell you is that I did feel something even though she never laid a hand on me. By the time she had finished working on me, I felt distinctly different - better! I slowly sat up from my bed and gingerly raised myself to stand. And to my shock, I felt good! I could move without excruciating pain.
To make a longish story short, I needed to learn what I thought was some witchy Jedi magic. While I was a bit wrong about it being witchy and magic, I was 100% correct on the need to learn about it. So I started the first step on what would become a fantastic healing journey. This learning would take me along a path that would bring me to learn much more about the energetic systems of the human body. One of the major components is the Chakra (pronounced chaa·kruh) system.
Reiki is a form of energy healing that involves the transfer of healing energy through the practitioner's hands to the recipient. The seven major chakras are energy centers located along the spine that are believed to correspond to different aspects of physical and emotional well-being. By understanding the characteristics and functions of each chakra, Reiki practitioners can gain insight into the specific needs of their clients and tailor their healing sessions accordingly. Additionally, working with the chakras can help the practitioner balance and align their own energy, leading to improved overall health and well-being.
Each chakra is associated with a different colour, element, and set of characteristics.
The first chakra, or the root chakra, is located at the base of the spine and is associated with the colour red. It is associated with the element earth and is believed to be related to our sense of grounding and security.
The second chakra, or the sacral chakra, is located just below the navel and is associated with the colour orange. It is associated with the element water and is believed to be related to our emotional and sexual well-being.
The third chakra, or the solar plexus chakra, is located in the upper abdomen and is associated with the colour yellow. It is associated with the element fire and is believed to be related to our personal power and self-esteem.
The fourth chakra, or the heart chakra, is located in the center of the chest and is associated with the colour green. It is associated with the element air and is believed to be related to our ability to love and connect with others.
The fifth chakra, or the throat chakra, is located in the throat and is associated with the colour blue. It is associated with the element sound and is believed to be related to our communication and self-expression.
The sixth chakra, or the third eye chakra, is located in the forehead and is associated with the colour indigo. It is associated with the element of light and is believed to be related to our intuition and wisdom.
The seventh chakra, or the crown chakra, is located at the top of the head and is associated with the colour violet. It is associated with the element of thought and is believed to be related to our connection to a higher power or spiritual understanding.
Reiki practitioners use hand positions and techniques to channel healing energy to the recipient's chakras. By placing their hands on or near specific areas of the body, practitioners can help to balance and align the corresponding chakra. For example, placing the hands on the lower abdomen can help to balance the second chakra, which is associated with emotions and sexuality.
Reiki can also help to clear blockages in the chakras, which can occur due to stress, trauma, or other negative experiences. These blockages can prevent the free flow of energy through the body, leading to physical and emotional imbalances. By clearing these blockages, Reiki can help to restore balance and promote well-being.
Reiki can also help to balance and align the chakras by promoting relaxation and reducing stress. Stress
can cause the chakras to become imbalanced, leading to a range of physical and emotional problems. By reducing stress and promoting relaxation, Reiki can help to balance the chakras and improve overall well-being.
It's important to note that Reiki is considered a complementary therapy, and results may vary; it's not a substitute for medical treatment. People should consult with healthcare professionals if they have any health concerns.
