The Practical Wisdom of the Chakra System

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master

Working with the chakras is a part of almost every energy healer’s job. On first glance, the Chakra System may seem subtle and esoteric in nature. However, upon deeper reflection, we realise that the chakras are a practical source of guidance and wisdom.

Each chakra corresponds with specific qualities. Painful and traumatic experiences create blocks in the chakras and hinder the development of these qualities. As we work with our chakras, we dissolve the blocks. Therefore, we automatically refine the qualities associated with each chakra and go on to create a balanced, wholesome and empowered life.

Energy work sharpens our awareness and inspires us to heal our unhealed areas. The more we work with energy, the more the energy shows us what is not working in our lives. We know exactly which chakras are overactive. We also know which chakras are energy deficient or completely blocked. This knowledge can help us recognise the qualities that are missing is us and also those that we may be misusing. An underactive chakra signals a missing quality while an overactive chakra means we are misusing the same quality.

Just for a moment, see yourself as a being with a completely healthy chakra system and observe your life playing out on a screen.

Take a deep breath and see all seven of your chakras glowing bright and clear-

A perfectly red and stable Root chakra
A warm orange and healthy Sacral chakra
A bright yellow and strong Solar Plexus
A beautiful green and love filled Heart chakra
A soothing blue and open Throat chakra
A deep indigo and crystal clear Third Eye
And finally a pure white and glittering Crown chakra.

If you work with the 12 chakra system, you may also visualize the other five chakras in a completely open and healthy state.

The Practical Wisdom of the Chakra System

In this state of perfect chakra health, you will be able to look at each of your chakras and make the following statements with ease-

How did it feel to read these affirmations?

This ‘Being of Wholeness’ is who you can be!

It takes time and effort to work through our blocks and to restore our divine qualities. However, since we are on the Reiki path, we are blessed with the gift of awareness. Through the application of Reiki, we can own our power to overcome previous limitations and to create new realities.

Reflect on the above affirmations again and see where you feel stuck. Note down your thoughts and observations. Set a conscious intention to work on your blocks. And request your Higher Self and your Guardian Angels to support you. You will be guided to whatever you need to do this inner work!

Love and Light.
