Unlock the power of your mind, body, and spirit with a chakra reading. Through this practice you can gain insight into yourself and explore ways to boost your physical and mental wellbeing. With an in-depth knowledge of each of your chakras, you'll be able to reclaim the ideal version of yourself.
Since I am a spiritual guide and spiritual healer what I am telling you below about chakra reading comes from my practice with many clients and students over 20 years, and not from books or some spiritual tradition.
First, I will give you a short perspective on the chakra system's origins.
THERE ARE MANY CHAKRA SYSTEMS IN THE ORIGINAL TRADITION
The theory of the subtle body and its energy centers called cakras or padmas (lotuses), ādhāras, laksyas (focal points), etc. comes from the ancient tradition of Tantra Yoga, which flourished from 600-1300 CE, and is still alive today. In mature Tantra Yoga schools (after the year 900 or so), every one of the many branches of the tradition articulated a different chakra system, and some branches articulated more than one. Five-chakra systems, six-chakra systems, seven, nine, ten, twelve, twenty-one, and more chakras are taught, depending on what text and what lineage you’re looking at.
The seven chakra system that Western yogis know about is just one of many, and it became dominant only around the 15-16th century.
THE CHAKRA SYSTEMS ARE PRESCRIPTIVE in the original tradition and NOT DESCRIPTIVE
English sources tend to present the chakra system as an existential fact using descriptive language (like “the Manipura chakra is at the solar plexus and it is yellow” and so on). Most of the original Sanskrit sources about chakras do not teach like this, but students are being given a specific yogic practice like “visualize a subtle object made of colored light, shaped like a lotus or a spinning wheel, at a specific point in the body and then activate mantric syllables in it” for a specific purpose.
Moreover, many studies found Western yogi schools and texts have no basis in the Hindu/Indian sources! Western yogi traditions tell that each chakra is associated with a certain bodily gland, certain foods, certain oils, certain metal, a mineral, a herb, a planet, certain body malfunctions, a path of yoga, a suit of the tarot, a sephira of Jewish mysticism (!), an archangel of Christianity! None of these associations are found in the original sources, and even common sense will tell you that Hindu tradition would not use as a reference other later religions. These were created by Western spirituals trying to fit yoga with their religious faiths.
Virtually nothing written in English is really authoritative for practitioners of yoga if compared with original Hindu and yogic sources.
I told you these so you have a wider perspective about the chakra systems and not only the Western ones. I am not saying that some aspects of Western yoga have no merits, just that they are rather very loosely related to the original tradition.
Understand the Basics of Chakra Reading
I will use further below the 7th chakra system since it’s widespread.
Before you begin a chakra reading, it’s important to understand the basics of this ancient practice. Chakra reading is part of the energy healing process, and it revolves around the fact that each person's body contains seven main chakras - crown, third eye, throat, heart, navel, sacral, and root – which each represent different aspects of your life.
These seven centers reflect both spiritual and psychological traits related to many beliefs we hold in us like self-esteem, willpower, confidence, etc. Through chakra reading, you can gain insight into these areas as well as explore ways to balance them in order to unlock your full potential.
Chakra readings are also a great way to gain insight and clarity on any lingering fears or anxieties that you may have. By understanding where these blocks exist, you can start to work within your energetic body to create a sense of harmony and balance, while working towards your personal goals. If you find yourself overwhelmed with emotions or negative energy, chakra reading can help you understand the root cause of this so that you can begin the journey to healing and self-growth.
Additionally, this practice helps identify areas in need of spiritual healing in order for us to live authentically and become our true selves.
Identify Your Chakras and Their Purpose
Let me start your chakra reading journey by identifying the seven main chakras in your body and understanding their purpose:
The crown chakra is located close to the top of your head and relates to spiritual connection, faith, and trust in your higher soul. It reflects our connection with higher vibration dimensions, with higher entities like your soul, God, spiritual guides, saints, etc.
The third eye chakra, located on your forehead, focuses on insight, imagination, and inner knowledge. It shows how well a person understands reality correctly, the real Causes of what occurs in reality and Creation around, and not as told him by family, school, society, friends, books, mass media, etc. Having a third eye chakra well open is paramount to assist us in learning our life lessons and moving on with our life, else we risk repeating them.
The throat chakra is related to expressing yourself through Communication, creativity, and sound. It reflects how well we communicate with other people, but also with nature, animals, other souls in higher dimensions of vibration, rest of Creation in general. This chakra also allows understanding communication with souls in higher dimensions like spiritual guides, saints, angels, etc. It’s very important to keep all our communication channels open so as to be able to learn from our interaction with others, feed Creation and other souls with our life experiences, and also receive from them their life experiences. If we don’t do this correctly, we risk dropping into Separation and isolation and hence lose contact with humanity and the universe.
The heart chakra connects to love, compassion, and relationships. The heart chakra reflects what a person feels with his heart, how close or distant he/she feels towards other people, to the rest of humanity, nature, and Creation. Basically, it shows how united or not that person sees herself toward the rest of Creation (other people, animals, plants, nature, etc).
The chakra of the navel and solar plexus is responsible for will and personal power. It shows how a person approaches reality around like some people are determined while others are shy and indecisive. It also shows how adequate their approach to reality is in relation to their destiny.
The sacral chakra governs pleasure, passion, and physical health. This chakra governs the peak emotions, especially relations with intimate partners, sexual relationships, and intimate partnerships in general.
Finally, the root chakra is associated with survival, stability, and material possessions. – The root chakra is the connection with Mother Earth. Kundalini energy located here is actually a projection of Earth’s energy in us. Earth and Sun are the real parents of our bodies, the chemical and biological elements of our bodies are coming from them. We eat what grows on Earth’s surface, we drink water from her, we breathe the air coming from her, etc. Additionally, Mother Earth is feeding us its energy daily through our feet and further through the kundalini in the root chakra. Therefore, our utmost interest is to reconnect with Earth's energies to keep our bodies running in optimal conditions.
The chakra reading described above in general terms is, together with one’s soul and body vibration and many other spiritual parameters, actually part of a full psychic reading I am doing for people who want to know their spiritual state.
I found that the average openness for a chakra is in the 1-10% range for this 3D vibration humanity, where most people have their chakras open around 3-5%.
Chakra readings are a great way to tap into your spiritual energy and become in tune with each of your chakras. During the process, when doing a chakra reading I assess each of the seven major chakras – crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral, and root – how open they are, and identify any areas that are blocked or need healing.
What you need to know is that ultimately our chakras are open according to our belief system, and our interest in order to keeping them open is to release our limiting beliefs in our subconscious. These beliefs are the fundamental cause of the state of our chakras.
Nevertheless, there are some ways to help clean our chakras of the energy effects of our beliefs as you can read below.
Awaken Your Sympathetic Nervous System with Aromatherapy and Color Therapy
Aromatherapy and color therapy are two tools that help clean your chakras to increase your energy levels and help unblock underlying issues.
Aromatherapy uses essential oils that awaken the sympathetic nervous system while calming the parasympathetic nervous system. By diffusing oils in the air, natural aromas can stimulate CNS to release hormones, which can be beneficial for improving mental and emotional health. For example, vetiver oil has soothing characteristics that can provide a feeling of grounding when dealing with stress or anxiety.
Meanwhile, color therapy uses light in different wavelengths to target particular areas of the body depending on its needs. Greens, blues, indigos, and purples are often selected as they represent balance and harmony between mind, body, and soul. To use aromatherapy and color therapy together for chakra cleaning, you will need to
Select the appropriate essential oil for each of your chakras, as well as the corresponding color.
Hold the oils in your hands, diffuse them through your room or wear on clothes or jewelry.
After that, visualize a color saturation starting from the base of your spine up through to the top of your head.
As you do this practice regularly it will help detoxify, soothe, and generally relax each of your chakras to improve their overall energy flow.
Nevertheless, these other means act on the effects of the causes that blocked your chakras, so they are just temporary means; you will feel better for the moment but not necessarily in the long run. Therefore, they can’t 100% clean your chakras as long as the causes are still active in the background i.e., limiting beliefs.
Harness the Power of the Third Eye and Crown Chakras for Intuitive Guidance
To tap into your true potential and identify what’s been holding you back, learning to read and understand the Third Eye (Ajna) and Crown (Sahasrara) chakras is essential.
The Third Eye chakra governs the pituitary gland, allowing us to see beyond surface-level perceptions and uncover deeper meaning. It also resonates with our intuition – an invaluable asset we can use when decoding life’s challenges.
Meanwhile, the Crown chakra governs the pineal gland and gives us clarity of mind, and opens our souls up to a higher source of knowledge, to higher dimensions of vibrations where we connect with our soul, God, saints, angels, and other higher souls.
By mastering these two powerful energy centers through meditation and chakra cleaning, you will Open yourself up to more clarity, insight, and inspired action in life. By mastering the Third Eye and Crown chakras, you will be able to tap into your higher intuition more easily and tap into a higher level of awareness. To access this spiritual wisdom, start by consciously connecting to your body through meditation or mindful breathing, and visualize the energy within each chakra as a spinning wheel.
Once you get a chakra reading and you start working on your chakras to open them up, try to recognize any heavy emotions or images passing through them. This allows you to gain insight into certain aspects of your life that may be blocking your progress, such as fear or negative beliefs.
From here, take action on what you’ve learned – changing limiting thought patterns for something more uplifting and drawing upon Universal knowledge for guidance when taking decisions forward in life.
