A forum for all of those open to balancing their Chakras, enhancing their yoga practice and ensuring optimum holistic health


There are a wide variety of plants, essences of flowers and herbs that can used fresh or dried in extracts, teas, tinctures and steam inhalations to cleanse the body of toxins and strengthen the immune system. For example, grapefruit extract works wonders as a post-illness tonic while magnolia bark tea harmonizes the Heart and Throat Chakras, willow flowers enable the release of sadness while rosemary, sage and thyme can be used in steam inhalations to defeat sinus infections and sore throats. First time users of aromatherapy should be cautious until they know how their body will react and some herbs can be dangerous to the unborn so if in doubt, consult your health practitioner.

Bija mantras are used in a chakra balancing practice to bring the focus inward. The audible sound is extended so that each repetition overlaps the one before it. The word HAM, pronounced like in harm, or humming the note G will energize the throat, bestowing an almost otherworldly tone and harmony to your singing voice.

A thorough discussion of the use of gemstones and crystals in chakra healing will not be attempted here as many excellent books have been penned on the subject. In short, blue topaz can be used to activate and balance the throat chakra by aligning the body’s meridians and is especially helpful when combined with Reiki healing methods. Its sister, yellow topaz aids in smoothing out energy imbalances and strengthening a weakened nervous system while uncut semi-precious stones such as sapphires and emeralds enhance the release and re-balancing of the whole body.
