Over the past few years, Reiki has become extremely popular not just in spiritual and wellness communities, but also amongst many celebrities. More and more often we hear that different celebs, like Christina Aguilera, Mel B, and Gwyneth Paltrow, swear by this healing practice. For those of us who have already made Reiki a part of the regular practice, it’s not surprising. We already know what a magnificent impact it has on our lives. But if you’ve never tried Reiki healing and wondering: ‘What is Reiki?’, this article is for you. I will try to give answers to the most common questions about Reiki.

Where Did Reiki Come From?

First, let me tell you that there are different versions of Reiki history and its evolution. I’ll share with you the facts I’ve been taught and discovered after several years of research. They may not exactly match the Reiki history facts you’ve been taught.

The Reiki System was rediscovered and adapted by Dr. Mikao Usui.

Mikao Usui

Mikao Usui was born August 15, 1865, in the Japanese province of Gifu in a family professing Tendai Buddhism. As a child, Mikao Usui studied with Tendai Buddhist monks.

Kiko System

His early years Usui devoted to the study of Kiko in the Buddhist temple of Tendai on the sacred mountain Kurama.

Kiko is a Japanese version of qigong, a discipline designed to improve health through meditation, energy exercises, and slow physical exercises. This discipline focuses on the use of Ki and includes methods of healing by placing hands on the body.

The essence of using the Kiko system is to create a source of healing energy with the help of special exercises, and only then – the use of this energy for healing.

This method had a very big disadvantage – a healer had been submitted large depletion because in the process of the healing he/she had to use a large amount of his/her personal energy.

Focusing on this drawback, Usui began to ponder whether it is possible to practice healing without accumulating Ki in the beginning, and not losing Ki at the end of the healing session. It was this question that prompted his study and research of various fields, including medicine, psychology, and religion. In search of knowledge, he traveled extensively in Europe and Asia.

Mount Kurama

In 1914, focusing on religious practice, Usui decided to become a Buddhist monk. At the same time, he continued to work hard in the field of his research.

However, in 1922 he decided to return to mount Kurama and spend twenty-one days there for fasting, praying, and meditating.

Mount Kurama is a sacred place with powerful energy. Since ancient times, this mountain has been revered by the emperors of Japan. This sacred place is very mystical as well as powerful. Kurama is considered the abode of Tengu (the Great spirit of Nature, the Owner of the mountains), who raised the best warriors of Japan. It was here that the great commander and national hero of Japan of the XII century Minamoto no Yoshitsune mastered the martial art and gained his magical power.

As I said, Usui practiced meditation on Kurama mount. And one of the meditations that he practiced was the following: the overthrow of the flow of water on his head, standing under an artificial waterfall. The purpose of this meditation was to open and purify his Crown chakra.

It is believed that by the end of his seclusion on mount Kurama, Usui had attained enlightenment when the Divine Light entered his Crown chakra. Through this Light Usui received his initiation into Reiki. His consciousness expanded, and he realized that he reached his main goal – he gained the ability to heal other people without depleting his own energy reserves.

Reiki Practice

After Usui was initiated into Reiki, he first practiced Reiki on himself and then on his family members. And soon he founded the “Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai”, opened his clinic in Tokyo, began to teach other people about Reiki system, and started giving Reiki healing sessions to other people.

Usui did not want the Reiki system to be a secret doctrine accessible only to a limited number of individuals. He also did not want this System to be restricted or controlled in any way. Usui sought to make Reiki accessible to everyone and wanted this system to be spread all over the world.

According to his teachings, every person who has taken the path of Reiki is able to experience the Divine state through which a new better world can be created.

Dr. Usui also said that it is not enough to heal a person physically. The human spirit must be involved in the healing process. That is, the health of the physical body depends on the health of the spirit. Therefore, it is possible to heal only those people who consciously show a desire to be healed with Reiki Energy.

Reiki Principles

For those wishing to study Reiki, Usui suggested using the Five rules of Emperor Meiji. These five rules later became the Basic principles which represent the ethical basis of the Reiki system. These principles are:

1.Just for today, do not be angry.

2. Just for today, do not worry.

3. Just for today, be grateful.

4. Just for today, work with diligence.

5. Just for today, be kind to people.

Usui saw the purpose of these principles in directing the mind to a particular meditative state, which sets the stage for healing on the mental level. Dr. Usui believed that progress on the path of healing always begins with meditation. When there is a problem in life, you can meditate on finding a way to solve it, focusing on the Reiki principles.

Usui’s Death

Dr. Usui worked in Japan for many years and trained Reiki Masters, to whom he passed all the traditions of his system.

Usui training ended in 1926 when he died. He is buried in Tokyo at the Saihoji temple in Suginami-Ku. His disciples erected a large memorial stone near his grave, on which they engraved the life story of Usui.

After the death of Dr. Usui, his closest friend and colleague Mr. Ushida became the Chairman of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai.

After the resignation of Mr. Ushida, the Reiki society was headed by Mr. Ilichi Taketomi, Mr. Yoshiharu Watanabe, Mr. Toyoichi Wanami and Ms. Kimiko Koyama, who left her post in 1998.

Currently, the President of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai is Masaki Kondo.

At the same time, it’s important to mention that there have never been such titles as “Grand Master” or “Lineage Holder” in Japan.

Chujiro Hayashi Period

Chujiro Hayashi was one of the most respected students of Usui. But even though Hayashi had received permission to teach Reiki he was never considered the heir of Usui.

Immediately after Usui’s death, Hayashi broke up with Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai society and formed his own Association. He opened a small clinic for healing people with Reiki, as well as courses to teach people Reiki.

Hayashi conducted his own research on various treatments with Reiki. He kept detailed records describing the effects of Reiki on various diseases (including severe forms of cancer). This is how Chujiro Hayashi developed his own Reiki style which consisted of the use of special hand positions for the treatment of various diseases.

Dr. Hayashi also discovered that Reiki energy flowed exactly where the body needed it most, while fully restoring the body’s strength. Thus, on the basis of his own research and studies, Chujiro Hayashi systematized Reiki as a treatment.

Hawayo Takata

Reiki System became known to the West through the Japanese American origin – Hawayo Takata. Without this legendary woman, it would require a lot of time before this system would come out outside Japan. Thanks to Takata the Reiki system has spread around the world and millions of people were able to heal themselves and others with the help of Ki.

Hawayo Takata Picture
Hawayo Takata

Hawayo Takata was born December 24, 1900, in one of the Hawaiian Islands – Kauai. When she grew up, she began to work on reed plantations. Then she married the accountant of one of the plantations and gave birth to two children. In 1930, her husband died, and she was forced to support the family on her own, working on plantations.

Hard work could not but affect her health – the condition of her lungs worsened, back pain appeared, and the nervous system was completely shattered. Soon after her husband’s death, Takata’s sister died, and she decided to go to Japan to visit her parents and improve her health.

Takata’s Reiki Path

In 1935, she went to the clinic of Dr. Hayashi. Being on treatment for four months, she was receiving Reiki sessions twice a day, which led to her full recovery. An examination conducted in an ordinary hospital confirmed this result.

At the end of the treatment, Takata remained in the clinic, helping with any work she’s been asked for. Seeing her zeal, Dr. Hayashi agreed to accept her as a student to the Reiki course.

After receiving 2nd Reiki degree initiations, Takata returned to the Hawaiian Islands. Dr. Hayashi followed her. Together they traveled all over Hawaii, conducting treatment, lecturing, and teaching people Reiki. Seeing the success of Takata and her dedication to work, Dr. Hayashi initiated her to the Reiki Master degree and returned to Japan.

Hawayo Takata opened a Reiki clinic in Hawaii, where she provided treatment to all those in need and at the same time she taught people the Reiki System. She became a famous healer. Conducting Reiki healing sessions and teaching people this system, she traveled the entire American continent and other parts of the globe.

Hawayo Takata sought to do everything possible to ensure that the Reiki System “took root” in the West. To do this, the system had to be significantly transformed into a Western mentality. In addition, it must be remembered that Hawayo Takata did not practice the “traditional” Usui Reiki, but a variety developed by Dr. Hayashi.

Reiki System Modification

After the death of Chujiro Hayashi, Takata modified her practice style of Reiki. In particular, Takata added her own rules to the Reiki System, which had nothing to do with what Usui taught.

Many consider these rules restrictive because they make learning difficult and thus slow down the spiritual growth of students. For example, Takata claimed that Reiki is an oral tradition. Therefore, she forbade her students to have written materials about Reiki, keep notes or make tape recordings.

However, in reality, Reiki is not an oral tradition. Proof of this is that both Usui and Hayashi had written materials that their students could use.

In addition, in the brochures of her groups, Hawayo Takata claimed that she was the only Reiki Master in the world, as all Japanese masters died during the war.

Since the 1970’s Mrs. Takata began giving initiation to a Reiki Master degree.

For two days of non-apprenticeship training, she set a fee of ten thousand dollars. Moreover, Takata announced this amount as an official reward for mastering the skill of Reiki. She especially emphasized that without the introduction of this sum further practice of Reiki is impossible. The need to Deposit ten thousand dollars was often crucial.

On the one hand, the high reward for the Reiki Master degree can be considered justified, as it inspires more value and respect for the system. On the other hand, for many people, high fees become an obstacle to getting Reiki initiation and prevent the rapid spread of this system. This fact contradicts the desire of Dr. Usui to make the Reiki system accessible to everyone.

Hawayo Takata’s Death

Hawayo Takata died on December 11, 1980. After her death, one of her trained masters decided to ignore her rules. This master was Iris Ishikura. She began to take a moderate fee for the Reiki attunements which caused the rapid spread of Reiki all around the world.

Before her death, Hawayo Takata asked two of her trained masters – Phyllis Lei Furumoto (Takata’s granddaughter) and Barbara Weber Ray to lead the Reiki movement. But a year after Takata’s death the way of these Masters broke up.

In this regard, two organizations were created:

1. The Reiki Alliance – the head of which was Phyllis Lei Furumoto;

2. AIRA (American International Reiki Association) led by Barbara Weber Ray.

Currently, in the West, there are several independent Reiki organizations, but the Reiki-Alliance and AIRA are the largest of them.

Modern Western Reiki System

The evolution of human consciousness, as well as the era of rapid development, cannot but affect the Western Reiki System. Having gained access to this system, a person seeks first to adopt it for himself/herself, and then, trying to get more out of it, seeks to improve it. Thus, concentrating on the energy itself, people began to discover new knowledge about Reiki.

Currently, there are more than thirty varieties of Reiki. And the evolution of Reiki does not end there. People continue to gain new knowledge about Reiki, opening up new opportunities for the ancient art of managing the energy of life, which Usui made available to mankind.

So, What Is Reiki?

It’s easier to understand what Reiki is when you understand the meaning of two Japanese syllables ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’. The first syllable ‘Rei’ means ‘universal, transcendental spirit, the universe’. The second syllable, Ki, can be translated as ‘sacred life energy’. Thus ‘Reiki’ can be translated as ‘universal sacred vital energy’.

reiki meaning image

What Is ‘Ki’ Exactly?

Most people have a basic understanding of Ki energy but don’t know what it is exactly. Also, most people think that Reiki is the only kind of Ki. In this part of the article, I’ll try to give more detailed information about Ki and explain what kinds of Ki exist.

In Japanese, the word “Ki” is used to refer to all kinds of vital energies. There is a certain analogy between Ki and the Chinese concept of “Qi” and the concept of “Prana” used by Indian philosophy.

Ki is the basic substance of the formation of all things in the Universe. Thus, all phenomena occurring in the Universe are a consequence of the movement and modifications of Ki.

There is an internal Ki that circulates in every human being, and the external Ki supplied to the human body when you inhale. External Ki, getting into the body during inhalation, is converted into internal Ki, and when you exhale it comes out and turns into external Ki. This is how vital energy Ki moves in the Universe. And that Ki energy is the vital activity of the whole organism.

Ki And Meridians

In our bodies, Ki circulates through the meridians – that is, through the so-called channels running parallel to the anatomical systems of the body, but vibrating at a higher frequency. Energy vibrating at a higher frequency affects matter vibrating at a lower frequency. Thus, with a negative impact on the meridians, the physical body exhibits symptoms of the disease. Therefore, it is extremely important to restore and maintain the balance of the energy body.

When a person gets sick, it is the meridians that are the ways in which the disease enters the body. Conversely, when a person recovers, it is by the meridians that the disease leaves the body and the symptoms disappear.

Thus, if you clear the meridians, on which Ki circulates, its flow becomes more harmonious, and, thereby, diseases get destroyed. One of the most effective ways to cleanse your meridians is daily Reiki healing sessions.

In other words, the easier it is for Ki energy to flow in your body, the healthier you are!

Different Kinds Of Ki

There are eight kinds of Ki. Each kind has certain characteristics. But all these types of Ki are in constant interaction with each other.

The eight kinds of Ki are:

  1. Kekki
  2. Shioke
  3. Mizuke
  4. Kuki
  5. Denki
  6. Jiki
  7. Reiki
  8. Shinki

As you can see, Reiki is one (the seventh) of the eight Ki’s kinds. And there are seven more kinds of Ki that most people (even experienced Reiki practitioners) have never heard about. But, in my opinion, in order to understand what Reiki is, you need to understand what Ki is. But without understanding all types of Ki that exist it’s hard to even understand what we’re dealing with when we practice Reiki.

Kekki has the greatest power, but the least ability to organize the flow of energy in the mind and body. And Reiki has the greatest ability to organize the flow of energy in the mind and body, but at the same time, it is difficult to achieve a direct effect.

Thus, Reiki is a so-called ‘method of energy management’. It is with the help of Reiki a person gets the ability to manifest everything he needs, using the right forces, in the right ratio, at the right time.

Other types of Ki perform various functions by interacting with each other.

Kekki

Kekki is the original Ki that provides vitality. It symbolizes blood. Kekki is used for cellular nutrition and energy structures.

Shioke

This type of Ki is basically bioenergy, the energy of bioplasm, giving the body a structure. It symbolizes the salt or minerals in the blood (‘shio’ means ‘salt’). This kind of energy gives us a will and fortitude, ensuring our existence. Shioke forms an energy field when a person realizes the purpose of his earthly incarnation. It is Shioke that gives us the possibility of self-realization.

Mizuke

It is the Ki of water and liquids, which grants flux and communication. Mizuke is the energy on which relationships are built. Also, this type of Ki, gives us the ability to eat and maintain metabolism.

Kuki

It is the Ki of air, which grants breath. Kuki gives us the energy of will, the ability to destroy and create. This type of Ki helps us to interact with any part of the Universe. It gives us the ability to think logically and digest food. It is the Kuki that gives the power to break bricks in karate practice. This energy helps us to follow our own path, regardless of the opinions of others. A person with strong Kuki energy cannot be manipulated.

Denki

It is the Ki of thunder which gives us motivation, striving, development, and growth. Denki connects us with creative power. The first emotion that gets created by thunder sound is fear. But then experiences gain the cleansing power that motivates us to find the most appropriate solution to the problem. That is, the thunder clears and heals, right after scaring us with its sound. It provokes a reaction that causes liberation from our emotions and the elimination of our energy blocks.

Denki transforms our fears into love. It develops tolerance in communication with other people and a better understanding of life circumstances.

Denki regulates our relationship with our own egos.

Denki helps to feel the unity with all beings. However, it is necessary to ensure that our development does not stop due to full integration with society and self-satisfaction.

Jiki

It is the Ki of magnetism, which endows us with complementary forces and challenges for growth. In other words, Jiki is magnetic energy, gathering power, creative energy. Jiki is enhanced when a person consciously accepts and learns the life lessons without complaining. For enhancing this type of Ki we have to understand that everything that happens in our lives is necessary for our development. Therefore we should face all the life challenges instead of avoiding them.

Reiki

It is the Ki of the soul, the source of our healing system. Reiki is the vital energy that manifests itself in the material world as the closest to the divine creative force. Here are some characteristics of Reiki energy:

  • connects without binding;
  • stimulates without overexcitation;
  • separates without creating isolation;
  • soothes without causing numbness;
  • directs our attention to life and love;
  • creates clarity without a loss of engagement;
  • awakens and supports the development of all kinds of hidden possibilities.
Shinki

It is the divine energy. Shinki works by means of Reiki outside the material world.

Reiki System

Reiki Healing System Image

The Reiki system is based on a deep understanding of the structure of the Universe. According to Reiki teaching, all the processes taking place inside and around us are controlled by the matter of the highest order – the energy that has Consciousness – Ki. When you know how to manage your Ki, you acquire the ability to solve any problems and maximize your potential.

Although most Reiki practitioners are mainly focused on the art of healing, Reiki’s main advantage is its multi-aspect nature. Practicing Reiki, everyone gets exactly what he needs at that moment: a businessman transforms Ki into money, an artist expresses Ki in art, a student – in studying, a cook – in the creation of a healthy dish. In other words, no matter what your goal is, by practicing Reiki you will always find a priceless gift – the ability to convert Ki into the enjoyment of life.

Dr. Mikao Usui taught to start any energy practice with the healing of the mind, resulting in a healthy body.

When the mind is healed, the body heals itself. In fact, the unity of mind and body leads to the attainment of a peaceful and joyful life. It is this unity that gives us the opportunity to engage in healing – to heal not only ourselves but also others, as well as to increase both our own well-being and the well-being of other people. This is the purpose of the Usui Reiki Ryoho system.

Reiki differs from other physical methods of healing, hypnotherapy, and psychotherapy. Dr. Usui claimed that there is no need to believe in the success of this practice in order that healing can occur. It works equally well for a small child, and for a seriously ill person, and even for a person in an unconscious state.

Reiki is not limited to the treatment of the physical body. It can also treat bad habits and negative emotions. The uniqueness of Reiki is that the healers have the abilities to heal themselves and others without the need for medical education.

Reiki Method

reiki initiation image

Reiki uses a spiritual method that goes beyond scientific medicine and is not based on it. However, advanced medical and pharmaceutical professionals recognize the effectiveness of this type of healing and some of them even become Reiki students.

Dr. Rokura Kuga said: ‘It is a fact that non-physicians (therapists) have carried out a series of therapies such as psychotherapy with a high degree of success that has not even been achieved by medical faculties because these therapies include the character, the personal symptoms of the patient, and many different (healing) methods in their treatment.

If they (as physicians associated with the medical faculty) would blindly reject therapists and psychotherapists (who are not associated) and attempt to impede them in their work, this would be very narrow-minded.’

Is Reiki Healing Legal?

Despite the fact that Reiki healing is mostly done by people who do not have a medical education, the practice itself is not illegal and does not violate the laws of medical practice. For the first time, an explanation of the legality of the Reiki practice was given by the Japanese Prime Minister in 1922:

‘Hypnotherapy and the like (similar therapy forms) were judged to be bad forms of therapy more than ten years ago, but today they have been better researched, and also effectively applied in psychiatry. It is difficult to solve everything related to a human being with medications. Physicians follow certain paths, which are based on medical principles, in order to heal disease. The use of touch and electrotherapy in combatting disease, are not components of the healing methods of the medical faculty.’

Reiki Benefits

Distance Reiki image

Practicing Reiki is surprisingly easy, and therefore accessible to everyone. At the same time, this practice can be combined with any spiritual, religious and therapeutic areas, which makes it universal. Moreover, this system has great flexibility, which allows you to use it in everyday life in a variety of ways. There are no generally binding rules to follow. It gives you the ability to improvise in practice, starting from your own intuition and feelings. You can combine self-healing sessions with meditations.

Because of this, it can be used in different spheres of life. You can give the healing to all family members including pets. You can charge your food with Reiki, thereby increasing the vibration of the food and making it more nutritious. The possibilities of Reiki are endless!

What Is Reiki Path?

It’s important to say that the Reiki path of each person is unique. You should never compare your own path with anybody’s else. Every person has his own reasons to practice Reiki. That’s why you should not even try to analyze, evaluate or compare your own path with others. Your experience can be completely different from a person who studied Reiki from the same Reiki Master as you did. Your feeling of energy can be also very different from your classmates. And this is normal. At the beginning of your practice, you may not feel the energy at all. And this is also ok.

What Are The Results Of Reiki Sessions?

Reiki sessions enhance the body’s ability to heal itself, restore energy balance, and strengthen the immune system, which allows it to resist various diseases or recover faster. With its help, you can treat various diseases and relieve stress.

reiki session image

Regular healing sessions lead to the maximum activation of the internal vitality of the person, reveal creativity, and help to manifest your intentions and desires quickly, safely and easily.

The results of Reiki sessions include:

Reiki Attunement

If you want to practice Reiki healing yourself (without the help of a Reiki healer) you should consider receiving a Reiki Attunement.

Introduction to the Reiki System always starts with the Reiki Attunement. A student receives the attunement from a Reiki Master Teacher.

Reiki Initiation Image

The Attunement is the initiation into spiritual tradition.

This is an ancient way of transferring energy and sacred knowledge from one person to another, which cannot be transferred by means of words.

During the initiation, the reiki student goes through a process of adjustment. The result of this is the raising of the vibrations of his entire energy system to a higher level.

After the Attunement, a person acquires not only the theoretical and practical knowledge transferred to him by the Reiki Master-Teacher, but also he acquires his inner knowledge and revealing of his own potential in energy management. This internal knowledge over time takes the form of the Reiki practitioner’s special abilities, not only in the field of healing but also in the creation of his/her own reality.

Usually, when people say “the Reiki Attunement” they mean the ceremony of the initiation into the Reiki System.

However, the Attunement is carried out by the Universal Energy in response to the intention of the Reiki Master, according to a certain methodology. That is, the transfer of internal knowledge and the revealing of internal capacity is carried out directly by Reiki.

The Attunement is a great mystery, during which a complete transformation of the student’s energy body happens. As a result, the student creates deeper and stronger contact with his/her Higher Self. The Attunement, in fact, is a direct flow of the Universal Energy pouring out upon a person.

Healing Models

reiki healing practice image

Every person who decides to try Reiki healing wonders – ‘how many sessions do I need?’.

Well, the number of healing sessions depends on the disease. Reiki is used to treat both acute and chronic diseases. However, chronic diseases require more time and healing sessions than an acute disease.

Acute Disease

It is a disease of a temporary nature – such as wounds, colds, viral infections, periodic pains and so on. In acute diseases, positive changes caused by Reiki healing sessions can be seen after 1-2 sessions.

Chronic Disease

It is a long-term disease – such as gastritis, arthritis, hypertension and so on. Such diseases require long-term healing work. The causes of such diseases arise at the level of mind and spirit and only then manifest themselves in physical symptoms. Therefore, the healer also has to help the patient to heal mental blocks. Only in this case, effective healing is possible.

It is impossible to say exactly how many sessions will be required for chronic disease, but you need to be prepared for the fact that, most likely, you will have to be treated for a long time.

The healing process is very individual.

Some people have more flexible minds than others, some people have a stronger desire to recover than others. You have to consider all these facts.

Often, after the first Reiki session, there is a temporary relief, but after several subsequent sessions, the symptoms can worsen. This often disappoints people and they refuse to continue the healing. However, it is necessary to remember yourself and timely inform your patients about the healing crisis that can occur on the way to recovery. But the healing crisis is temporary and it leads to recovery.

The Bottom Line

Developing your inner power through Reiki you’re gradually changing your perception of the world. Relationships with people are improving,  problems are resolved for the common good, and all problems disappear as soon as you develop yourself spiritually. Choosing to practice Reiki, you find a great tool, to face even the most mundane problems with the confidence that everything will be resolved for the highest good.

Chakra Affirmations: Powerful Ways To Communicate With Your 7 Chakras

Affirmations For Chakras Image

There are many ways to restore the natural flow of energy through the chakras. Visualization, yoga asanas, breathing exercises, crystal healing, color therapy, sound healing—all of these practices help release blockages and restore balance. Repeating chakra affirmations is another method of chakra balancing. Repeating affirmations direct healing energy to restore balance in your body and your life. When we repeat chakra affirmations, we become capable of rewriting the patterns in our subconscious minds and direct healing vibrations to the chakras.

In this article, you will learn how the practice of chakra affirmations can help you balance your chakras and communicate with your energy field.

What Are Chakras?

Usually, when we speak of the chakras, we mean the seven vital centers in the subtle body.

Chakras are energy nodes in the subtle body, a kind of receiver and transmitter of cosmic energy. These are rapidly rotating whirlpools of subtle energies that arise along the spine from the root to the crown. They are vortex-shaped. Each of the seven main chakras works at a certain level and is “responsible” for a certain aspect of life, health, and various life situations.

Our chakras are like batteries for various levels of vital energy. Their purpose is receiving, storing, and radiating energy through interaction with the universal life force. The freedom with which energy can flow from the universe to you and back directly determines your state of health and well-being.

Any blockages of the vital energy flow lead to a disorder of the body’s systems as a whole and result in illness, discomfort, loss of energy, or emotional instability. By realizing and understanding the chakra system, and the way it works, we are able to remove our own limitations and reach a level where it is easy to solve any problems and overcome any obstacles in life. Meanwhile, a complete blockage can lead to a complete disconnection from the universal life force, that is, to physical death.

There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head:

  1. Muladhara – Root chakra – located in the perineum of men and in the cervix of women.
  2. Svadhisthana – Sacral chakra – located above the Muladhara, just above the genitals.
  3. Manipura – Solar Plexus chakra – located behind the navel within the spinal column.
  4. Anahata – Heart chakra – located above Manipura, near the heart.
  5. Vishuddha – Throat chakra – located in the middle of the throat.
  6. Ajna – Third Eye chakra – located at the top of the spinal column near the medulla oblongata.
  7. Sahasrara – Crown chakra – located in the crown of the head and is associated with the pituitary gland.
Essential Oils For Chakras Image

These seven chakras (or energy centers) are very important parts of our energy body. The chakras not only control and energize the vital organs of the body but also control and affect our psychological and spiritual conditions. When one of the chakras goes out of balance, it leads to a physical, emotional, or mental impact on your body.

Therefore, it is essential to know what condition your chakras are in. Our Chakra quiz can help you to test your chakras and find out any imbalances. To take the quiz CLICK HERE.

What Are Chakra Affirmations?

Chakra affirmations are short phrases containing a verbal balancing formula that, when repeated many times, activates the healing process in the subconscious of a person, contributing to energy flow restoration, energy block removal, chakra balancing and healing, psycho-emotional state improvement, and positive changes in health and wellbeing.

With the help of chakra affirmations, you can reprogram your mind from lack of energy and illness to vitality and health. If you learn to direct the energy of your thoughts to health and wellbeing you will eventually start feeling better, more energized, and will notice that you’re more healthy than ever.

Chakra affirmations will help you to remove emotional and energetical blocks which will naturally lead to a significant improvement of your overall health and will take the quality of your life to the next level.

Chakra Quiz: Which of Your Chakras Is Out of Balance?

Published

on

Chakra Quiz Image

The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body, made up of various colors and located from the base of the spine to the top of the head. They are the key to our physical health, emotional stability, and mental clarity. Our seven chakras react to any external stimuli and very clearly indicate an energy imbalance. If you tend to face the same problems over again and over again or have to be treated for the same diseases time after time, then this is a sign that the energy doesn’t circulate in your chakras harmoniously. It is not difficult to analyze the state of your chakras, if you’re willing to watch yourself, your feelings, and your behavior carefully enough. Therefore, taking a chakra quiz can be very beneficial in understanding how energy circulates in your body.

Our chakra quiz will help you find out which one of your chakras is out of balance the most and what you can do to restore the proper energy flow through it. 

Seven Chakras

Before you take the chakra quiz, let me remind you that there are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head:

  1. Muladhara – Root chakra – located in the perineum of men and in the cervix of women.
  2. Svadhisthana – Sacral chakra – located above the Muladhara, just above the genitals.
  3. Manipura – Solar Plexus chakra – located behind the navel within the spinal column.
  4. Anahata – Heart chakra – located above Manipura, near the heart.
  5. Vishuddha – Throat chakra – located in the middle of the throat.
  6. Ajna – Third Eye chakra – located at the top of the spinal column near the medulla oblongata.
  7. Sahasrara – Crown chakra – located in the crown of the head and is associated with the pituitary gland.

These seven chakras (or energy centers) are very important parts of our energy body. The chakras not only control and energize the vital organs of the body but also control and affect our psychological and spiritual conditions. When one of the chakras goes out of balance, it leads to a physical, emotional, or mental impact on your body. To find out which chakra is out of balance, take the chakra quiz below!

Chakra Assessment Quiz
Your Root chakra (Muladhara) is out of balance

Muladhara test image

Muladhara is considered the source of vitality and survival instinct. This chakra is located in the perineum of men and in the cervix of women. It affects the organs of excretion and reproduction, the gland organ, and hormonal secretions. Muladhara is directly related to the nose and sense of smell, as well as our animal instincts. In the area of Muladhara, human evolution begins. And it is from the Root chakra that Kundalini rises. Muladhara chakra is responsible for the instinct of self-preservation, vitality, and courage. If your Root chakra is imbalanced, it means that your connection with the Earth is broken, the energy is not able to rise through the channels or does it in a wrong way, the balance is lost, the physical body weakens. Such an imbalance can cause diseases of the spine and the entire musculoskeletal system, diseases of kidneys, colon, and blood. An imbalanced Root chakra can cause unexplained stress, anxiety, and fear of the future. Getting out in nature, walking barefoot, journaling on things that make you feel safe, and doing grounding yoga poses like mountain pose or Monkey pose (Hanumanasana) can all help to balance your Root chakra. Reduce to a minimum watching TV, thrillers, horror movies, in other words, everything that excites and frightens. Try to go to sleep before 11 pm and get up early at 5 or 6 am. Start your day with prayers, mantras, and positive affirmations.
Your Sacral chakra (Svadhisthana) is out of balance

Svadhisthana Chakra Test Image

Svadhisthana chakra controls your sense of creativity, expression, and sensuality, and how you relate to other people. It is located between the pelvic bones, in the lower abdomen area. Svadhisthana is responsible for the health of our lymphatic system, kidneys, reproductive system, all organs located in the pelvis, and sexual life. This is the place where our sexual energy is concentrated. Imbalanced Svadhisthana is responsible for infertility, frigidity, and impotence. It is responsible for the choice of sexual partners, sexual desires, and emotions that we experience in the course of intimate life. It is the Sacral chakra that is responsible for the manifestation of our creative potential, self-expression, motivation, and the ability to make life changes. Having an imbalanced sacral chakra can make you feel like you're stuck in a rut or unable to find inspiration. You also might feel unfulfilled in your romantic relationships and friendships. Start to balance this chakra by taking on a new creative hobby or leaning into mindfulness meditation to connect with yourself again. Yoga is another powerful tool for balancing your Sacral chakra. It’s best to practice dynamic Ashtanga yoga, forward bends, asanas that help the hips open. Use crystals for your Sacral chakra healing and balancing. Such crystals as moonstone, carnelian, apricot agate, orange garnet, fire opal, orange sapphire, sardonyx, carnelian, sunstone, aventurine, calcite, fire agate, and orange spinel are perfect for balancing your Svadhisthana. To balance and heal your Sacral chakra, you can meditate with a crystal, holding it in your hands. You can also wear a ring with one of these crystals on your pinky finger.
Your Solar Plexus chakra (Manipura) is out of balance

Manipura Chakra Test Image

The Solar plexus chakra is called “Manipura”, which means “lustrous gem”. It's located in the upper abdomen, near the stomach. This chakra is where our gut instincts come from, and it relates to all things self-confidence. Manipura chakra gives you the opportunity to express yourself, it’s responsible for your Ego, intuition, and emotions. Your willpower, financial success, general success, authority, strength, and power depend on the condition of your Solar plexus chakra. Manipura chakra gives you the power to follow your true path without being distracted by something unnecessary. It’s responsible for creativity, intelligence, and ego, and it also gives you curiosity and clarity of mind. Any imbalance and blocks in Manipura lead to diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, increased or decreased appetite, as well as diabetes. Digestive problems, such as bloating, nausea, diabetes, kidney disease occur as a result of weak Manipura chakra. These diseases are usually accompanied by a feeling of fear, increased nervousness, anxiety, reaching a state of psychosis. Those with a blocked Manipura might feel uncomfortable in their own skin and disconnected from their intuition. Journaling on your best qualities, or repeating positive affirmations will help you to balance your Manipura. Crystals can also help you to balance and heal your Solar Plexus chakra. Yellow tourmaline, citrine, amber, golden yellow labradorite, tiger-eye, lemon quartz, and yellow Jasper are perfect for balancing your Manipura. To balance and heal your Manipura chakra, you can meditate with a crystal, holding it in your hands.
Your Heart chakra (Anahata) is out of balance

Anahata Chakra Test Image

The heart chakra is a source of love and compassion. This energy center is responsible for intuitive understanding, healing abilities, cleansing the aura from negative energy, and the ability to give and receive love. It connects your physical and spiritual nature. It is located in the center of your chest and it is responsible not only for the heart function but also for the lungs, thymus gland, and the cardiac plexus. In Sanskrit, the heart chakra is called Anahata, which means an unharmed, spiritual place where past resentment and experiences cannot hurt us anymore. If you have an imbalanced Anahata, it can negatively affect your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. On a physical level, you may have poor blood circulation and jumps in blood pressure. Anahata strongly affects the heart, lungs, and upper body. From a spiritual point of view, an imbalanced heart chakra can cause the inability to trust yourself or others, the feeling of insecurity and fear. You might find it difficult to be vulnerable around other people or share your opinion openly. In order to heal and balance your Anahata, you should stop focusing on things you don’t like, and start feeling grateful for what you have in life instead. Heart-opening yoga poses and guided meditations focused on self-love can all help this chakra start to open up. Also, physical touch helps to open and balance your heart chakra. Try to give your partner or family members as many hugs as you can. If you don’t have a partner you can take massage sessions or reiki healing sessions.
Your Throat chakra (Vishuddha) is out of balance

Vishuddha Chakra For Beginners

Vishuddha is responsible for communication with other people and for creative self-expression. This is where inspiration and personal development begin. This chakra gives us the ability to listen and hear – not only other people but also our own inner voice. Vishuddha is connected with the ears and the sense of hearing, with the throat and speech. It awakens acceptance of the vicissitudes of life, mental balance, and sensitivity to the needs of others. This chakra deals with all things expression and governs how you get your message out into the world. If you are someone who has trouble communicating with others or feels like you never have quite the right words, you might have a blocked throat chakra. Moreover, fear of public speaking, profanity, grumbling, lying, criticism, condemnation of yourself and others are also the symptoms of an imbalanced Throat chakra. The element of the Throat chakra is ether. That’s why spending time outside under the open blue sky is already healing itself. Spend more time in nature looking and meditating on the blue sky. Consciousness journaling, writing songs, or singing will help you to open up and balance your Vishuddha. Another powerful tool for opening your throat chakra is crystals. It’s very good for your throat chakra healing to wear a necklace with lapis lazuli, blue calcite, aquamarine, turquoise, sodalite, amazonite, or blue tourmaline.
Your Third Eye chakra (Ajna) is out of balance

Ajna Chakra Test Image

The Third Eye chakra is located at the center of your forehead. It is the center of cosmic consciousness and intuition. This chakra controls and energizes the pineal gland and the nervous system. It also provides you the ability to see things as they really are through inner vision and wisdom. It is responsible for the conscious perception of the surrounding reality, for all mental abilities, learning process, memory, and willpower. Ajna provides an opportunity for telepathic communication, seeing spirits, and even receiving messages directly from the Divine Source. If your Third Eye chakra is blocked or imbalanced, you might feel spiritually stifled or unable to pick up on some of the signs around you. To activate and balance your Ajna, start a dream journal or go on a spiritual excursion using sound or breathwork. Also, you can use aromatherapy for activating your Third Eye. To do this, you need to take eucalyptus essential oil and rub it in the forehead area. Apply the oil from the central part of the forehead to the nose. You can do it before you start your meditations or go to bed.
Your Crown chakra (Sahasrara) is out of balance

Sahasrara Chakra For Beginners Image

Sahasrara chakra is located in the crown of the head and is associated with the pituitary gland. Thanks to the crown chakra, we can learn, realize, accept, and connect our consciousness to universal love and infinite knowledge. Having an open crown is pretty rare, and those who manage to do it are considered enlightened and all-knowing. If you can’t find your life purpose, if you can’t find answers to your questions, if you can’t understand the meaning of life, your Crown chakra might be out of balance. The disruption or absence of the connection with the Cosmic Consciousness, eventually leads to a feeling of uncertainty and fear, blocking all other chakras, which prevents the energy flow from free circulation through the body. The inability to think clearly in a stressful situation, dissatisfaction with life, depression, loneliness, unwillingness to communicate with other people, loss of zest for life, fear of death are all the symptoms of imbalanced Crown chakra. You can start to balance your Sahasrara by contemplating life's bigger questions and spending time observing nature. Aromatherapy may help you to open up and balance your Crown chakra. Lotus and Lavander are the best essential oils for Crown chakra healing.

Emotional Numbness: 10 Signs You’re Struggling With One

Published

on

Emotional Numbness Image

The fact is; we are emotional beings. We go through one or more emotions at different stages in our lives, depending on our environment and those around us. These emotions, coupled with desire and knowledge, determine how we behave. However, not all emotions are pleasant. A painful period may trigger awful negative feelings that can lead to emotional numbness. Here, the body is temporarily blocking any further negative emotions that are harmful to the body and mind. So how can you tell that you are going through emotional numbness? And, what can you do to cope? Read on.

10 Signs of Emotional Numbness

#1: Emptiness

Emotional numbness is a period of emptiness. Typical triggers of emptiness include infidelity, boredom, and bereavement, communication breakdown in families, substance abuse, and mental health issues like depression.

In such a situation, you may lose purpose in life, studies, work, or hobbies. For example, the loss of a partner changes the structure of your life overnight. All of a sudden, you question the validity of your dreams.

#2: Disconnections between Body and Mind

Are you grieving, facing hatred and discrimination at your place of work, or have crushing anxiety about the outcome of your medical tests? Well, all these events can cause your body to disconnect from your mind. You may find yourself absent-minded in most office meetings.

Alternatively, you could be going with the flow, taking medication, and eating a special diet as per your nutritionist’s recommendations. Yet, when you look back, you have no recollection of why or what you just did.

#3: Disconnection with the World

Emotional numbness makes us cold to those we care about. In turn, we lose touch with local events, special days, or even forget our daily routines. For example, a spouse who is grieving the loss of a child may forget their wedding anniversary. Or, a mother who just underwent a painful delivery may find it hard to soothe a child, despite hearing the baby crying for hours.

#4: Withdrawal from Friends and Family

Now, when you do not share emotions with your family and friends, you become detached. Sometimes, you feel numb when listening to your loved ones sharing their challenges and wins. Or, a heart-felt movie feels indifferent.

#5: Autopilot Mode

Woman stressed image

Now, emotional numbness switches our brain to autopilot mode. Here, we do things because we know them as per our subconscious mind. However, we have no desire to grow our potential or further this knowledge in any way. You may wake up, shower, take your morning toast and coffee, and hop on the tram to school. A few minutes you remember that electrical fault at the cooker, that can start a fire once you are gone. Or, realize that you picked the wrong clothes from the laundry mat, after getting those weird looks in class.

#6: Loss of Sense of Time

When you are lost in your world due to emotional numbness, time comes to a standstill. You forget significant dates. And, a mention of, say Thanksgiving rings no bell about the season of the year.

#7: Living on the Edge

Severe stress can make you live on the edge. You feel like you no longer have control of the events in your life. Like you are a guest in your own life. In turn, you no longer find pleasure in your hobbies or career. Or, your concentration is almost zero even in the simplest tasks.

#8: Overall Insensitivity

Emotional numbness diminishes your ability to process thoughts or respond to physical signals. You are always in a constant dream-like state.

#9: Dislike of Persons with Strong Emotions

Since you are unable to express strong negative or positive emotions, your numbness makes you detest others who do so.

#10: Panic Attacks

Panic Attacks and Anxiety Image

Finally, as the period of emotional numbness comes to an end, you may start to experience overwhelming and confusing feelings. You start questioning your state of mind, as you have no clue what is happening to you. In turn, you may have severe panic attacks.

Managing this final phase of emotional numbness full of emotional imbalances is critical. You do not want to trigger another stressful event that may prolong the disorder.

Self-Help Tips

Note that, emotional numbness is always due to underlying stress. Your first step to overcoming this disorder is by addressing the stress.

You can achieve this by:

#1: Reorganizing Your Lifestyle

Do you feel you are in the wrong career? Go back to school and study another course. If you are struggling with obesity, enroll in your local gym for regular fitness exercises. Where you struggle with insomnia, use guided audio sleep meditations to get enough deep sleep.

These lifestyle changes will relieve you of the stress, and get control of your life.

Many people try to fill the emptiness in their lives by engaging in unhealthy compulsive behaviors. These include compulsive shopping, alcohol abuse, overeating, or under-eating. Doing so only worsens the situation.

#2: Breathwork (Pranayama)

Breathing exercises are a simple and easy way to help you mindfully move through whatever you’re experiencing. Pranayama is particularly useful when intense feelings such as fear or rage breakthrough. There are many tutorials with breathing techniques you can easily find online. Stick to something simple. The point is to use your breath (in whatever way suits you), to calm your mind and body. Try to breathe slowly, deeply, and softly instead of forcing deep breaths (which can actually increase anxiety). Let your breath be natural.

#3: Journaling

ayurvedic journal image

Get a journal and spend 5-10 minutes a day writing down everything that triggers even the slightest bit of sadness in you. This simple habit will help you to express your emotions, even if in an indirect way at first. Your journal will serve you as a catalyst for feeling and letting out your emotions.

#4: Catharsis

Catharsis may involve screaming into or punching a pillow to stimulate sadness and crying. This intensively emotional exercise may also involve impassioned dancing or dynamic meditation.

Regular catharsis should be a must on your journey. Without regularly ‘letting it all out,’ you may run the risk of experiencing the repercussions of festering emotions.

#5: Inner Child Healing

Practice inner child healing and find ways of comforting and nurturing this vulnerable place within you.

#6: Creative Expression

Write a song, paint a picture, dance, find some way of expressing what emotion you last felt. If you struggle to feel anything at all, express that artistically. Pay attention to how you feel afterward. Notice if there is even the slightest feeling of satisfaction within you.

#7: Ask for Help – Psychotherapy

Often, you may find that you are struggling to maintain a regular self-care routine that can help you snap out of the temporary emotional numbness. That is quite normal. Tap yourself in the back for taking the initiative to deal with this disorder, even when your mind is not into it.

However, if you find your routines are too inconsistent, seek professional help.

Psychotherapy involves working with a counselor or doctor to address your cognitive behavior. It is about checking and correcting how your thought process affects your behavior. By doing so, you reduce bouts of anxiety, depression, fear, or a sense of helplessness.

Conclusion

Note that, emotional numbness is quite common; affecting most people at various stages in their lives. It is the body’s way of overcoming being helpless as you undergo prolonged physical or emotional trauma. If you feel empty, seek help.
