Before we get into detail on some of the more advanced concepts, let’s cover some basics.

A definition for chakra healing is: using an energy healing modality to balance the seven chakra centers within a person’s body.


The seven chakras are aligned vertically, starting at the base of the spine and ending at the top of the head. The concept of chakras comes from India. In Indian Sanskrit, it is spelled cakra, and is referred to as a wheel, circle, or vortex of energy within the human body.

Each of the seven chakra centers can become imbalanced in two different ways: too open, or too closed. Let’s explore one of the seven chakras, the heart chakra, as a way of describing the differences of a chakra in two different states of imbalance….

Too Closed: A person who’s heart chakra (4th chakra) is too closed may find themselves not relating well with others, feeling anger and animosity towards other people, and be disconnected from loving other people.

Too Open: A person who’s heart chakra is too open may find themselves overly sensitive to criticism and pain in the world around them. They may have a hard time relating to others because of the overflow of stimulation and emotions in their heart.

The person feels connected to others and has healthy relationships and friendships.
