Chakra Balancing is included in all energy healing sessions that are offered at Joyful Serenity Healing, based in Mandurah.
The word Chakra in Sanksrit means wheel or disc.
Chakras are our main energy centres located along the central channel of our spine. Chakras spin like wheels from the front and back of our bodies, into our energy bodies and auric field. They form almost a cone or trumpet shape as they spin and radiate outwards.
These energy centres store and distribute life force energy (ki) throughout our physical and energetic bodies. The colours are that of the rainbow, with each one having a direct impact on the area of the body that it is connected to. Most physical illness or disease is created by an imbalance in one of these energy centres which in turn starts to impact on the physical body.
Having our chakras balanced and aligned regularly, has many benefits – but predominantly emotional and physical health and vitality.
Each chakra has its own colour, vibration and musical note as well as physical, mental, emotional and spiritual properties.
During a Reiki session, the focus is mostly on these energy centres, as it is through these chakras that we can balance and channel the most amount of healing energy possible, always for the highest good of the client. This energy is then easily distributed throughout the rest of the body along the energy channels (or meridians). These are almost like veins, but for distributing energy rather than blood.
There are 7 main Chakras/energy centres that we work with in a session. There are also additional chakras that do arise for further healing and amplification of energy, they are not listed here but will be discussed with you in your session if applicable.
