Healing the Chakras of the Body

September 11, 2014

I will never forget when I first learned about the energy centres or chakras of the human body. To say it was a profound and life changing experience would be a major understatement. I was in my first year of nursing school and I went into the self-help section at Chapters and picked a book off the shelf called Eastern Body, Western Mind by Anodea Judith. I started reading the book immediately and couldn’t put it down.

I learned about the 7 main chakras of the body (there are actually 114). If you haven't heard of a chakra before it is an energy centre that allows energy to flow in and out of our body and aura. We have an aura surrounding our bodies that is a multi-level energy field. You could say that these energy fields are invisible, however they can be seen by clairvoyants. Each chakra has different qualities and governs a corresponding endocrine gland and area of our physical body, as you can see in the image below: 

I learned that through different life experiences our chakras can become blocked and unhealthy. These blockages or imbalances will manifest as issues in our physical lives. Eventually, if left unhealed will lead to illness and disease. I remember crying tears of joy when I read this, as it all made so much sense to me. I always felt like there was something missing in our traditional medical model. From there I went on to a journey of healing (that continues to this day).

I wanted to learn as much as I could about the chakras because I knew it would be invaluable in my nursing career and I wanted to healing myself. I learned different energy healing modalities including Reiki and Pranic Healing. There is a method called Healing Touch, which was actually founded by an RN, and is popular among massage therapists and nurses. There are many other types of energy healing modalities and anyone can learn them, you can even learn to work with energy without taking a course.

Energy healing can help to bring you into balance and provide many benefits for emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Some of these include:

  • Reducing stress
  • Decreasing pain
  • Spiritual growth
  • Increased self confidence
  • Strengthening immunity
  • Increase relaxation
  • Self-healing
  • Raising the vibrational frequency of the body
  • Providing emotional clearing
  • Assisting the body in cleansing from toxins
  • Clearing stagnant energies
  • Improved health

I was surprised that after 4 years of nursing school, there was no talk whatsoever on the chakras, aura, or anything to do with the energy systems of the human body. How can this important information be missed, when this is the true start of imbalance in the body? Unfortunately, our western medical model focuses on the physical symptoms and treatment with pharmaceuticals, which cause more harm than good, and actually never get to the root cause of the issue.

Gemstones and Energy work are great ways to start to heal your Energy Centres. Check out our Healing Gemstone Jewelry (here)
