WORKING AT A DEEPER LEVEL
Maybe you’re a seasoned holistic health practitioner, or maybe you’re new to energy medicine. Either way, you offer your clients a safe healing space where they can come to release any “dis-ease” they are experiencing. Often, this dis-ease is felt in the physical body as aches, pains, soreness and fatigue; or in the emotional body as stress, worry, or anxiousness. Frequently, its origins are actually blockages on the energetic level, and only come to manifest in the emotional and physical bodies over time.
When working with the chakras, we are given the opportunity to better understand these patterns and the progression of dis-ease. This understanding allows us to direct our therapies to yield a greater benefit for clients, and interact with them on a more holistic basis to promote healing at the deepest level.
Here are five important benefits of using chakra work for your clients:
1) It helps clients understand deep level blockages that prevent optimal health and wellbeing
Many holistic therapies, especially hands-on techniques, open up the flow of energy in the body. By studying the chakras, you’ll develop a greater understanding of these energy blockages and why they occur to begin with. You’ll learn how blockages in a specific chakra affect your clients emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. You’ll also be empowered with practical tools for unblocking this energy at a very deep level.
2) Chakra work directs you to the areas most in need of attention
Once you know how to read the chakras, the body will tell you which areas are a priority with a quick and simple assessment. For example, if you identify the foot chakra as being weak, your client will likely feel very ungrounded, possibly suffering with anxiety and insomnia. Maybe they are fatigued from overwork. This often affects the low back and reflects in the sacral or root chakra. If they are very stressed, the shoulders and neck will often be tensed, with the liver chakra likely involved. When digestion is bothering them, look to the solar plexus chakra. No need to guess. Let the body tell you exactly what its priorities are by learning to assess on an energetic level.
3) It validates emotional responses
Next time your client has an emotional response during a session, you’ll be able to quickly provide insights. You’ll share the correlations between the emotion and the energy imbalance in specific chakras. Examples include: anger and irritability correlates to the liver chakra and overall tension in the body. Grief or sadness relate to the throat chakra and a need to release past traumas. Overall emotional turmoil connects to the heart chakra. Even more important, knowing how to activate and clear the chakras can have a pronounced impact on healing these emotional burdens.
4) Working with the chakras identifies and clears bad energy, even before it manifests in the emotional/physical bodies
Working at the energetic level of the body gives insights to patterns that are developing even before they show up as emotional or physical ailments. Negative or dirty energy in each of the chakras has its own meaning. For example, if you find that the solar plexus chakra has dirty energy (possibly caused by improper food/drink), this will likely lead to an upset in the digestive system. Clearing this negative energy before ailments manifest has a preventative effect. If emotional or physical distress is already present, clearing the negative energy will assist in restoring wellbeing.
5) Chakra work empowers your clients with home-care tips to assist and support specific chakras
Simple recommendations can go a long way towards helping your clients experience wellbeing in their day-to-day lives. Once you have identified which chakras need extra attention, you’ll be able to give personalized recommendations for gentle exercises, use of specific foods, colors, crystals, aromatherapy, verbal affirmations, and other subtle tools that bring support on an energetic level.
The chakras reflect what is happening deep within the body. Understanding the connections between the energetic, emotional and physical body affords us a gentle and profound way to work holistically and make a greater impact for our clients.
