Your chakras are your energy center and when they are blocked or unbalanced, it can make you feel that you are out of control or that you are stuck. As things change such as the season and the moon cycles, you will see that you can center your energies and you can make sure that your chakras aren’t imbalanced or blocked. By doing this, you can get rid of negativity out of your life. Here is how:
- Using Incense
One of the best ways to balance your chakras is to clear out negative energy. You can do this by lighting incense. If you feel that you aren’t stable or that you are feeling negative, start by turning the lights down, sitting in a chair or in the Sukhasana pose and burn some incense. You can burn cedar if you want to have a woodsy scent, and this will help you to feel grounded and stable.
Another way to balance your chakras is using crystals. Crystals have their own healing power, and you can use different ones and different colors for the different chakras. Use crystals like orange calcite or Lapis Lazuli to bring balance to your chakras.
- Salt Lamp
A salt lamp can bring peace and can help to improve your blood flow. If you need help with sleeping or if you need to have comfort in your home, reduce allergies or get rid of asthma, a salt lamp can help.
Find one that has orange or pink and this can help to balance the lower chakras. A golden lamp can balance the solar plexus.
Yoga can help you to open areas of your body in a natural way. You can take classes that are focused, and they will show you different poses that you can do such as the Pigeon Pose or the Bound Angle Pose. All of these can help with opening up the chakras.
The Camel Pose, Upward-Facing Dog or the Wheel Pose can work on the heart chakra. As you do this yoga, you can open up energy blockages.
- Drink Tea
Tea is a great thing to drink that has many health benefits. It can also be a time that you take time to relax, and you take time for yourself. Tea can help to open up the throat chakra which can help you to communicate.

- Positive Mantras
If you have trouble meditating or being quiet, using a mantra can help you to calm your mind and body. You can make up your own words or phrases or you can find ones online that can help to bring peace.

- Go to Nature
Nature is one of the best ways that you can connect with your chakras. Nature can give you a chance to slow down and enjoy the world around you. Let go of anything that causes you to feel stressed or worried and be present in what you are doing now.
