In the last several years, a lot of people have contacted me saying they would like to have their chakras balanced. It seems to be what is trending recently. So I explain that they could have a Reiki or Acupressure/Reiki (energy) session. With Soul Lightening Acupressure there is a specific formula that is used at the end of every session that balances and aligns the chakras. Reiki sessions will balance the chakras, too. Also, meditation can be very helpful in balancing oneís chakras.
But I go on to explain that just having someone balance their chakras wonít give them long lasting benefits. It will last for a while which is great since it gives the person an experience of feeling in balance. But if the person has unresolved issues or wounds or faulty beliefs in a chakra that have created an out of balance condition they wonít stay in balance by just having an energy session. Itís more complicated than that.
Often the reason the person is asking for chakra balancing is that they have gone for a psychic or intuitive reading and the reader told them that their chakras were out of balance and they should have them balanced. Or they have read about it on the internet or Face Book, etc. An interesting piece of information that many have not encountered is that the chakras are changing moment to moment based on how they are interacting with the energy in the environment. So any reading would just be a snapshot at that time and may or may not be representative of the chakra over time.
An energy session is very helpful on many levels but I like to share information with others so they can make the best choices for themselves. I prefer to empower others in life, I donít want others to become dependent on me. So studying about the chakras can be very useful.
There are a lot of books available and classes, too. The chakras are at the core of our being and each chakra is in charge of a specific area of oneís life. There are lessons that we are learning based on each chakraís focus. So our life experience will reflect where we are in learning these lessons. There are balanced characteristics for each chakra. If you evaluate your life based on the balanced characteristics for that chakra, you will discover if that chakra is out of balance.
Once someone knows which chakras are out of balance, and their related issues, they can begin to take action steps to resolve those issues. That may sound simple but we often have resistance to change. Often itís helpful to take chakra classes in a group to receive the benefit of group energy and support. Or you might want to have sessions with an energy practitioner. In some circumstances, individual sessions would be best.
If you want to read a very good basic chakra book, Iíd recommend The Sevenfold Journey by Anodea Judith & Selene Vega. Itís a classic. It also has yoga & tai chi type movements that can be helpful to your chakras. There are many other great chakra books but Anodea Judith is my favorite chakra author. But trust your intuition when choosing the best book(s) for you.
If you want to attend a group class, I offer Exploring Our Chakras classes periodically. Currently, Iím presenting them in Janesville, WI but I may be presenting them in webinars in the future. It seems that over the years many students of these classes are able to shift issues in their life during the course of the classes. They are currently offered as a four hour class once a month for 4 months. But they could be offered as 2 hour classes during the week (daytime or evening).
Also, Soul Lightening Process Acupressure sessions can be great for individual work. You may want to read my article about process acupressure or visit my website page about acupressure for more info.
If you have taken Reiki classes, then doing self-Reiki each day can be extremely helpful. If you havenít taken a Reiki Attunement class, you can take Reiki I in one day or split it into 2 different segments. Doing Self-Reiki as you meditate can enhance your meditation experience, too.
Enjoy your journey on your Rainbow Bridge (your chakras) from earth to higher consciousness and then to bring higher consciousness through you to ground it into the earth (manifesting).

Process Acupressure is a holistic way to work with the active energy of both body and soul for healing and growth. PA is an exceptionally effective method for facilitating a deep, supportive and potentially transformational experience. It is a gentle and simple way to enhance health, personal awareness and growth. The practitioner applies firm, gentle finger pressure to specific acupoint combinations and encourages the client to notice what they are experiencing. Often, by acknowledging and addressing what arises in the mind, emotions, body and spirit during a session, positive change can begin to occur. The unique essence of the individual is magnified and brought into clearer focus. The client is empowered to choose the pace and depth of this exploration at all times. PA can stand alone as a therapeutic modality or it can be combines with psychotherapy or other bodywork modalities. It does not replace medical care and is not appropriate for severe medical problems or psychosis. PA was developed by Aminah Raheem, Ph.D, originator of Soul Lightening Acupressure.
