Clearing your chakras throughout the day doesn’t have to be hard. From wearing a certain color, accessory and applying essential oils, the possibilities are endless!
First, let’s cover some chakra basics.
The chakras are believed to be energy-generating, working to help keep our body in balance and thereby promoting physical and emotional well-being.
The chakras are seven reference points in the body organized around the nervous system. Each chakra corresponds to a vital organ in the body and has associated emotional characteristics.
What are the benefits of having cleared chakras?
When you clear your chakras, energy is able to freely flow through your energetic system. Having balanced chakras impacts your aura, your energetic field. A balanced aura will allow you to attract positive energy.
According to the law of attraction, when we hold positive energy, we attract positive results. This leads to an overall greater sense of wellness.
Chakras need to be cleared regularly.
There are many ways to clear and balance our chakras. We can eat foods associated with the colors of each of the chakras. We can also practice yoga where particular poses help to open up certain energy centers.
Just like maintaining a clean home and work environment, chakras need to be maintained regularly too. Each day of the week, focus on balancing one chakra at a time. By the end of the week, notice how you feel once when you have a more balanced chakra system!
Remember, setting your intention matters.
Get clear on why you want to clear a particular chakra as you set your intention. For example, you might set the intention to balance your root chakra in order to attract more abundance into your financial life.
