Chakra balancing is defined as the process through which the energy of the chakras is brought to a well functioning and harmonious state. When looking at how they operate, we see that chakras have a dynamic connection to each other and interact energetically. Therefore, when doing chakra balancing, it’s not only important to consider each chakra, but also the neighboring centers, and the energy through the whole system. Most of us have energetic blocks and imbalances as well as energy-sabotaging habits that prevent us from accessing our full vitality, which leads us to feel exhausted, or even ill.

To combat such issues, chakra balancing can prove essential. In seeking balance there are 5 essential tools one can use: color, sound, toning, food, and visualization.

  1. Color: Allow your own intuition to guide you in choosing what colors to wear. Our energy centers all have a particular frequency that resonates with certain colors that carry a similar frequency. Color is much more powerful than you might think. 
  2. Sound: Just as the color has a frequency, so too does sound. Our energy centers resonate with specific musical notes. Root = C, Sacral = D, Solar Plexus = E, Heart = F, Throat = G, Third Eye = A, Crown = B. Listening to music in the above notes will stimulate that particular energy center (classical music is pretty good for this).
  3. Your voice is another tool to use to create tones to stimulate and balance energy centers. You will intuitively know which pitch is correct for you, and you will begin to feel the center feeling lighter and responding to that tone. 
  4. Food: Adjusting your diet to take in more food of the same color of the Chakra you are trying to balance. For instance, if you’re focusing on your root chakra, try adding more red-colored foods to your diet like tomatoes, radishes, watermelons, peppers, pomegranates.
  5. Visualization: Sitting in meditation, visualize drawing energy up from the center of the earth and cleansing each energy center, with the relevant color, sound, and frequency. Visualization is quite possibly the most powerful tool of all.
