10+ Chakra Balancing Tips and Chakra Test to Feel Better

Feeling out of sorts? Your Chakras are likely out of balance. You can find your energy imbalances using the Chakra Test in this article. I recommend practicing Chakra Balancing to feel better. If your Chakra energy centers are out of balance. Your life can feel out of balance!

If you think about it, we are all made of energy. Your body may feel solid, but we are all made up of cells. Cells are composed of atoms, which are also made of energy. If you put anything under a microscope and look deep enough. You'll see nothing but energy. 

Groups of structured energy make up everything in our world. These energies affect how we feel emotionally and physically. Chakra balancing will allow healing to happen naturally!

So our bodies are an energy field or auric field. Inside this group of energies are our 7 Primary Chakras. Our body sends and receives energy all the time. As we interact with people and events we exchange energies. We can sense the energies of others!

We all have Chakras on our primary meridian that process these energies. Our spine connects to all areas of the body via meridians. The processed energies travel through Chakras into the meridians to get stored. You'll find these energies in your tissue, organs, and your human structure.

Emotions get passed from person to person via their auric fields. So think about negative events, people, and emotions in life. They pass to your auric field. Your Chakras process the negative emotions and send through your meridians. These negative emotions become trapped in your body. They are pulsating balls of emotions that excerpt pressure on your physical tissue. This can lead to pain, discomfort, even disease. These emotions control your moods, habits, and personality traits.

When you practice Chakra Balancing your energy centers work in your favor. You want to stop your body from storing negative emotions. With a Chakra Test, you can find where you need to focus. Learn how The Emotion Code can help you remove the trapped emotions. 

Over 90% of illness and disease has trapped emotions associated with them. You can use Chakra Balancing to enhance current treatments. Chakra testing will help you find energy centers out of balance!

When your energy centers are in balance. Your body has the energy to heal naturally!

IF there was one “energy healing” I wish everyone would understand. Chakra Healing would be it! I'll share different Chakra healing, meditation, and tools below. Balance your Chakras and heal to a better life!

What are the 7 Primary Chakras?

Chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for wheel. Translated the word Chakra means a point of physical or spiritual energy in the human body. Also known as “spinning disk” or “energy center.”

Look at yourself in front of a full mirror. You have 7 Primary Chakras running from the base of your spine up to the crown of your head. 

Your success with Chakra Balancing is understanding all the aspects and variables.

First let's understand the top, bottom, and middle chakras.

  • At the base of your spine is the 1st Root Chakra that grounds you to mother earth. Imagine the energy of gravity holding us to earth. The energy is pulling us down. There is also a return of energy going back to power your lower root chakra. Creating a circular flow of energy.
  • On top of your head is the 7th or Crown Chakra. This energy flows into the universe and connects you with spirit energy. Energy flows up as during thought or asking questions. The flow comes back with guidance and answers. Creating a circular flow of energy.
  • In the center of your body is the 4th or Heart Chakra. Our primary purpose is to give and receive love and happiness. The energy from your Root and Crown Chakras flow into the heart!
  • From the Root Chakra up, next is the 2nd Naval and 3rd Solar Plexis Chakras. 
  • From your Heart Chakra up, next is the 5th Throat and 6th Brow Chakras.

Chakras are not something you can touch or see. But they are something you can feel and affect you! If you've ever felt heartache that affects your Heart Chakra. A sore throat after yelling is your Throat Chakra. That stomach ache or “gut feeling” is your Solar Plexus Chakra.

The 7 Chakra Chart and Colors

7 Chakra Balancing Chart

Your Chakras match the colors of the rainbow. Starting with red at the root to violet on your crown.

  • Violet Crown Chakra
  • Indigo Brow Chakra
  • Blue Throat Chakra
  • Green Heart Chakra
  • Yellow Solar Plexus Chakra
  • Orange Naval Sacral Chakra
  • Red Root Chakra

What is Chakra Balancing?

Imagine each chakra was a ball of energy, say 12″ in diameter. Some of your chakras may be smaller or larger? These Chakras are out of balance and you feel out of sorts.

A more advanced view is imaging that each chakra is a 6″ tube filled with liquid. Going through your body from front to back. Inside each tube is the color of the chakra in liquid. The liquid is rotating clockwise.

Next, imagine each tube was spinning around forming a circle of light. If you look at your body from head to the base of your spine. You see the colors of the rainbow for each chakra. Some are brighter and bigger than the others.

Chakra Balancing is the process of bringing every color into balance. Spinning the same direction, speed, and size.

The solution for solving most energy and emotional issues is found in our chakras.

How Can I Do A Chakra Test?

By testing your Chakras you'll find which energy centers are shut down or spinning out of control. A Chakra test may show your heart is shut down or very dim. It may be from heart aches and trauma in life. Maybe you've been hurt too much and it's protecting you? 

Another Chakra test may show your Naval and Solar Plexus Chakras overpowered. If you have too much stress in life and have that gut feeling. Maybe an upset stomach or digestive tract. Eating too much of the wrong foods and weight gain is common.

Are there Chakra Testing Meditation?

Meditation isn't only for going within and quieting your mind. You can also use meditation for Chakra testing. As you are meditating you can ask your spirits to help test your chakra. During meditation, open your eyes and stand in front of a mirror. Hold your arms out to your sides by your Root Chakra. Move your hands towards you with your palms facing inward until you feel a stopping point. This is the width or size of your Root Chakra.

Repeat for your other Chakras. Don't overthink it, just feel it. 

Don't worry the first time won't be perfect. With practice, you'll get a sense of which chakras are lower in energy and which may be over-energized. 

Next, go back to meditation with your eyes closed. With focus and intention, imagine your blocked or closed chakras opening up. Now bring down the power of the chakras with too much energy!

Feel the chakras balancing. Practice daily and journal your progress.

What is Chakra Alignment?

Chakras can be too closed or too open. The goal is Chakra alignment somewhere in the middle. Chakras that are too open leave you vulnerable. Chakras that are too closed make you feel withdrawn and unloving. 

Using Chakra Testing above, find the energy centers and balance them. Another common Chakra Alignment practice is to shut down you Chakras first. Then open them up in a managed way. Learn to open and close your chakras for better alignment.

Keeping your Chakras Closed or Open?

During meditation, I like to open and balance each Chakra. If it's before bedtime or reset, I'll leave them open. If I'm starting the day I may shut down the center five chakras.

IF you are struggling and new to Chakra Balancing. It's recommended you shut down your 2nd-6th Chakras. The first goal on this journey of Chakra balancing and alignment. Is to keep your Root and Crown Chakras open. 

Connect with mother earth and the universe. Get the energy flowing!

How I Practice Chakra Alignment Meditation

I start my meditation with Chakra balancing background music. You can find many free Chakra Meditations on YouTube.

As I write this article I'm listening to this Chakra Meditation on YouTube

My Chakra Meditation Step-by-Step

  • As you quiet your mind, with the music playing, connect to your divine spirit. 
  • Give thanks for all you have and all that is around you.
  • Breathe deep and exhale deeply. You want it to be smooth and effortless.
  • Now focus on your Red Root Chakra. See the red ball of energy. Spend time focusing and letting it grow and become a beautiful red color. See it rotating clockwise. 
  • Now continue up and do the same process with your
    • Orange Sacral Chakra
    • Yellow Solar Plexus Chakra
    • Green Heart Chakra
    • Blue Throat Chakra
    • Indigo Brow Chakra
    • Violet Crown Chakra

At this point, all your Chakras are powered up. In your mind take a step back out of your body. See yourself and the 7 Chakras all glowing with positive energy.

Do you feel good? Do you feel energized? You may smile and/or cry, it's ok. This is how you align your Chakras!

Closing your Chakras after Balancing

When I'm feeling good and strong I like to keep my Chakras open. I've been practicing Chakra Balancing for years so I'm confident with the power of my auric field. I'm not worried about others or negative emotions.

IF you are new to Chakra Balancing you may not have this confidence yet? So I recommend shutting down five of your Chakras. Still, in meditation, go back into your body. We want to keep your Crown and Root Chakras open all the time. Keep yourself connected to mother earth and the universe.

Focus on the Chakra and see it power down. The light goes down to very dime. Power down the:

  • Indigo Brow Chakra
  • Blue Throat Chakra
  • Green Heart Chakra
  • Yellow Solar Plexus Chakra
  • Orange Sacral Naval Chakra

In time you can keep your chakras open. You can experiment but you'll know when you are ready!

Balanced Chakras results in having a strong auric field around you. Your auric field has a protective ring around it to block negative harmful energies. With a stronger auric field, fewer negative emotions reach your Chakras.

Heart Wall Chart

What is a Heart-Wall and how does it affect my chakras?

We've all experienced negative and traumatic events in life. The negative emotions are processed by your Heart Chakra and can hurt your heart. To protect itself a Heart-Wall is created. It can grow to many layers deep over your lifetime to protect you!

The problem is you can be “overprotected.” Your Heart-Wall can hold you back from sending and receiving emotions. You'll feel withdrawn, unloved, and unhappy.

Chakra balancing can prevent your Heart Chakra from allowing negative emotions. But what do we do about the past emotional baggage? This is where the Emotion Code can help.

Using muscle testing, we connect with your subconscious. Your subconscious remembers EVERYTHING! We ask yes/no questions to find trapped emotions from negative past events. The Emotion Code chart pinpoints the emotion and location. By swiping our hand or energy healing magnet over the primary meridian. We release the trapped emotion like erasing the back of a credit card.

Releasing trapped emotions allows specific parts of your body to heal. These are caused my specific people or events from the past.

The Emotion Code, Heart-Walls and Chakra Balancing go together as one! Request the charts and the free information.

The 12 Chakra Energy Centers for Testing

I've shared many variations of the 7 major Chakras in the human body. Use one or all of them. I explained how I see Chakras as tubes of color in our bodies. Going from front to back. The Root Chakras connects us to mother earth. The Crown Chakra connects us to universal power. The center five Chakras are tubes with a front and rear energy centers. This adds 5 energy centers to the existing 7. Bringing the total to 12. Each energy center governs a certain part of your life. By looking at your life, you can determine which Chakra energy centers need to be balanced.

The 12 major Chakra energy centers are (starting from the bottom):

  • Root Chakra
  • Sacral Chakra – Front & Rear
  • Solar Plexus Chakra – Front & Rear
  • Heart Chakra – Front & Rear
  • Throat Chakra – Front & Rear
  • Brow Third Eye Chakra – Front & Rear
  • Crown

The 12 Chakra Energy Test

In this article I list the 7 primary Chakras by:

  • Chakra Locations
  • Chakra Colors
  • Chakra Stones
  • Chakra Crystals
  • Chakra Mantras
  • Chakra Sanskrit names

We've taken all this into consideration and created the 12 Chakra Energy Test. If you answer “yes” to a question, that means the Chakra aspect is open. If you answer “no”, the chakra closed and needs to open to be in balance.

Chakra Balancing Stones

There are many Chakra stones to help you with Chakra balancing. They aren't required. They actually enhance or strengthen your energy healing. 

Chakra stones and crystals have properties that help or magnify healing. The practice of using them dates back thousands of years.

Root Chakra Stones

The Root Chakra is your survival center. Most imbalances and healing issues at the root deal with fear, doubt, and lack. It's common to see someone feeling “head in the clouds” or unsafe because of the blocked root chakra.

Imbalances can manifest as constipation or fatigue. Anxiety and financial instability might also be present.

Signs of an overactive chakra. You may find yourself being cynical or giving into materialism.

Recommended stones to balance the Root Chakra are usually red or black in color like: 

  • Black Tourmaline
  • Hematite
  • Red Jasper

Sacral Naval Chakra Stones

The Naval Chakra is an emotional body. Most imbalances and healing issues at the Naval deal with fear, especially the fear of dying. The Naval Chakra is linked with water and is all about flow and flexibility.

Imbalances can make you feel disconnected from others and drawn inward to yourself. Symptoms include Lower back pain, fertility issues, and kidney problems may also arise.

Signs of an overactive chakra. You may find yourself dealing with addiction or bad habits. Lack of creativity, or even low libido. You may struggle with self-confidence and or mood. Disorders like ‘depression’ or ‘bipolar disorder’ can be present. 

Recommended stones to balance the Naval Chakra are usually orange in color like:

  • Orange Carnelian
  • Tiger’s Eye healing stones

Solar Plexus Chakra Stones

IF you've ever had a “gut feeling” about something. It's probably your Solar Plexus talking to you. Stomach aches, indigestion and event backaches can be common.

Authoritative parents, spouses, or employers can cause a block in your solar plexus. Bullying and abuse are also causes. Including mental and emotional abuse. These emotional traumas affect our self-confidence. They reduce our personal power and block this chakra.

Imbalances can result in low self-esteem, and a tendency to procrastinate. Even a stubborn or judgmental attitude. Stomach issues and nerve problems can result as can a need to control everything.

Do you find yourself stressed all the time? Are your “fight or flight” emotions activated often? Do you have a tough time finding balance? It's time to balance your chakra.

Recommended stones to balance the Solar Plexus Chakra are usually yellow in color like:

  • Yellow Citrine
  • Tiger’s Eye is a great stone for both the Naval and Solar Plexus Chakras

Heart Chakra Stones

Your heart is the largest electrical center in your body. Put your hand on your heart and feel the energy. When your heart chakras are open and flowing, love, and happiness flows. 

When they are blocked or overactive. Jealousy, self-pity, victimhood, loneliness, neediness, unforgiveness, and uncertainty rear their ugly heads.  This negative energy can cause issues with the heart and one’s circulatory system. 

Recommended stones to balance the Heart Chakra are usually green in color like:

  • Rhodonite
  • Emerald

Throat Chakra Stones

Your Throat Chakra is vital to communication. This is where you speak verbally and with clairvoyance. 

When there are blockages you may have trouble communicating with others. You may also feel creative blocks. Or you can't find the right words to say what you mean.

Recommended stones to balance the Throat Chakra are usually blue in color like:

  • Azurite
  • Aquamarine

Brow Chakra Stones for the Third Eye

Are you aware of your Third Eye in the Brow Chakra? What do you know about it? It's often called the “all-seeing eye.” Like the eye on top of the pyramid on the back of the one-dollar bill. I also think of it as your “lighthouse” looking into the mist to bring in the ships.

Your 6th chakra is your intuition center.  The Brow Chakra helps you live life to your highest potential. 

The third eye chakra is blocked for most people. This holds you back from remembering our life’s purpose and what makes us happy. You're not sure why you are here or what is your purpose. 

Read that sentence again. So many people go through life “lost and unsure.” They are just showing up every day.

Don't worry, we can find our life’s purpose or happiness. Meditate and open your Third Eye Chakra 

The answers live deep inside us. We have to tap into our intuition and rediscover.

Recommended stones to balance the Brow Third Eye Chakra are usually indigo in color like:

  • Azurite
  • Charoite

Using it during a cleansing ritual will heighten your intuition and emotional intelligence. Lie on your back during meditation and place the Azurite on your brow, between your eyes.

As you balance your Brow Chakra and open up your Third Eye. You'll be able to make life-changing decisions easier. You find you can seek guidance from the spirit world when you need it.

Crown Chakra Stones

We all wear crowns! Imagine a beautiful crown on your head covered in jewels. So shiny bright you can hardly look at it with human eyes. But when you meditate you see this crown energy flowing too and from the universe. Your connection with the divine. Every day I give thanks and send love to the divine creator. I connect with my ancestors, spirit guides, angelic beings, and archangels. 

To grow spiritually, you’ll need Chakra balancing to open your crown chakra. You'll want to focus on cleansing and de-calcifying your Third Eye for better vision.

Imbalances can result in finding yourself misunderstood by others. You may find yourself in constant need of attention and approval. You may be totally disconnected from your own soul.

The Crown Chakra must be clean and clear to connect to a higher power and all that is around you.

Recommended stones to balance the Brow Third Eye Chakra are usually indigo in color like:

Over 90% of all diseases in the body are associated with negative energy and chakra blockages. Over the years of our lives, we pick up negative emotions. Our auric field receives negative emotions. The Chakras process the emotions and send them through the meridians of the body. The Trapped Emotions get lodged in your cells and organs. This negative energy pulses and puts pressure on your physical body. We see them manifest in aches and pains. Some lead to illness and disease.

How Chakra Balancing can help with Illness and Disease

If you are struggling with any illness or disease. Make time daily for Chakra Balancing. Always continue with anything your medical professionals advise. But don't overlook balancing your energy centers too!

How to Use Chakra Stones?

There are so many ways to use chakra stones and none of them are wrong. Follow the guide here to get started. Listen to your intuition. This communication will get stronger as you meditate more. 

If you have an ache or pain, ask for direction on how to balance the chakra. You will be guided to use a specific stone. 

Belief is essential in your healing process. Chakra balancing and Chakra tests have been used for thousands of years. Millions of people attest to the results. 

If you are a “doubter” and won't believe it till you see it. This will likely fail like other things in your life. 

This is actually an example of a Chakra imbalance!

How to Use the Chakra Healing Stones 

Choose a stone that has the same vibrational frequency as the chakra you want to balance. Lay down on your back and make sure that your spine is straight. Place the stone on the part of the body where its corresponding energy center lies. 

I suggest using all seven chakra centers, even if you are more focused on one. 

Let the stones to sit there for at least a few minutes. Longer if you have time. Focus on each Chakra and balancing the energy. Concentrate on the stone amplifying your healing energy. Cleanse your Chakras of any old negative energy!

Chakra Balancing Crystals

Many people use crystal wands to balance the chakras. Quartz Cyrstal is the most popular Chakra Crystals. 

You can hold crystals in your hands or placing them on your body chakras. Chakra Balancing Crystals promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Crystals do this by interacting with your body’s energy field, or chakra.

Summary of Chakra Balancing and Testing

I spent a lot of time creating this article but it's only an introduction. I could write a book on Chakra balancing and it's actually a goal someday. Anyone can learn Chakra Testing. I prefer using my hands and “feeling” the strength of my energy fields. In my Reiki practice, I know practitioners who use dowsing and pendulums.

As a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner, I prefer to use muscle testing. I've used muscle testing to ask if my chakras are open or closed. I've asked if there are trapped emotions in my chakras and more!

Here are some links to articles that may interest you on your Chakra Balancing journey!
