The body’s seven main chakras are each associated with a different set of organs and systems within the body. Because the entire concept of energy healing focuses on maintaining balance and health between the mind, body, and spirit, ensuring all seven chakras are balanced is the key. It’s important to note, too, that each chakra corresponds with areas of the body that use a substantial amount of energy. The Heart chakra, for example, contains enough electromagnetic energy that it can be measured from several feet away. However, if the Heart chakra is closed or underactive, the flow of energy through the chakra is hindered, which can have a domino effect on the other energy centers of your body. Chakras also each represent various aspects of consciousness along with parts of the physical body, so maintaining well-balanced chakras may be essential when it comes to promoting a healthy mind and spirit — both key aspects of energy healing. Because of this interconnectedness, it’s not uncommon for tension in a particular part of consciousness to ultimately result in physical symptoms. If you experience a bad relationship breakup, for example, you might feel it in your Heart chakra and could experience tension in the nerves associated with your heart. Over time, that held tension could intensify and manifest itself in outward physical symptoms that chakra healing and chakra balancing could resolve. By regularly practicing energy healing techniques like chakra healing, you can address and may potentially even reverse the symptoms of physical disease and illness.
