Which Chakra do I Need to Balance?
There are seven main energy points running along your body, and these are represented by the seven chakras. When all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and spirit.
If you’re looking for a simple way to balance your Chakras you can try your hand at Chakra Healing Meditation, which works to balance specific energy centers in the body by using colors and sounds which represent the Chakra you are focusing on. This type of Meditation is slightly different from a guided meditation as it uses specific frequencies and colors to align the energy centers in the body relating to the specific Chakra.
