This is only a partial list of some of the foods, drinks, and spices that will help out your chakra. For a chakra balance you just need to learn how to focus better on your chakra centers.
You can begin balancing your chakras, by starting with the root chakra and working your way up to each ascending chakra, by placing gemstones on each chakra point. When working with each chakra point, you can bring balance to individual chakras by leaving a gemstone on the point for 3 to 5 minutes each, depending on the level of balance you feel each chakra needs.
You can use any kind of gemstone, but some people suggest certain gemstones for each chakra. But this list isn’t always the same for each person; you can test this out by buying a few kinds of gemstones. Once you place the gemstone on your chakra you will possibly notice a humming or a feeling that feels good if you are using the proper gemstone. If you feel a negative feeling, or just the gemstone doesn’t feel correct, do not use that gemstone for that chakra again.
You can experiment with different gemstones, and when you find the one that feels the best you should make a list of which chakra and what gemstone you are using. An example is black onyx being used for your root chakra, this seems to be a very good choice for most people, but once again it may not be the correct gemstone for your chakra. So don’t feel that you are doing something wrong if a gemstone that someone else suggested doesn’t work for you.
You can balance all of the chakra centers at the same time, by placing your gemstones on each chakra point for approximately three to twenty-five minutes, depending on how much balance you feel your chakras need.
Many people are finding that the easiest and quickest way to achieve chakra balance is by using the latest audio technology which balances your own chakras by reproducing the sound frequency associated with each one.
Just by listening to the special sounds on headphones your chakras become instantly balanced!
