How To Align Chakras

In today’s modern world, it comes as no surprise that you might be feeling the panic of being stuck in the same place as you were a year ago, due in part to everyone else’s seemingly fast paced lives on social media.

How To Align Chakras?

Whether you are starting to lose some control of your day-to-day, or you feel like your life is full of ‘meh’ moments, then it might be time to align those chakras. 

This is because when you feel moments like the above, there is a good chance that your chakras are out of line.

Sometimes the world we cannot control, as well as our personal lives affect the energy of our body and cause it to become unbalanced, or even blocked.

Fortunately, there is a way to realign chakras back to their usual state.

In this article, we take a look at different things you can do to align your chakras to regain the calm and serenity that you would like to feel every single day.

So, take a deep breath, and get ready to feel good once again. 

Involve Yourself With Yoga

Yoga is one of the best ways to align your chakras.

Not only will a skillfully designed class allow you to gently work on stretching the body, but it will open particular areas within the body.

This means that you are able to target the different areas of the body where you might feel restless or stressed, in order to have a healthier overall wellbeing. 

For example, postures that allow for the hip to open can target the lower chakra, while postures that open up the shoulder and back can target the heart chakra. 

Think about where you are suffering the most, and use postures to open up and target specific chakras.

Over time you will feel much calmer and relaxed, even outside of the yoga studio

Eat Particular Colors

You might find that eating the same color as the chakra you are hoping to rebalance will help to bring peace and tranquility to your everyday life. 

For example, if it is the root chakra you are trying to align, then add red colored foods heavily into your meals.

Some ideas include tomatoes, peppers, watermelons, etc.

Try A Mantra

How To Align Chakras?

You are not the only one who struggles with sitting in complete silence trying to meditate.

When this happens, recite a mantra instead. It will help you to focus which in turn will balance both your mind and body.

Whether that is saying ‘Om’ while holding rudraksha beads, or saying a phrase you like, it will calm your whole body. 

Drink Warming Tea

When you take the time out to drink a mug of tea, it instantly helps you to wind down after a long day.

It allows for a person to sit and savor the moment while taking in the flavor and scent of the tea leaves.

To really enjoy this comforting experience, choose a delicious herby tea that has its own benefits to your body and health.

This will allow you to balance your throat chakra to speak a lot clearer, and to help bring back your creativity. 

Surround Yourself With Incense

The root chakra has a close link to a person’s ability to smell.

The earthier scent of a cedar incense stick helps a person to feel grounded despite having a restless body. 

If you are finding it difficult to relax and unwind, especially after a busy day, then you may find igniting the incense stick a rewarding experience to help align the root chakra.

To benefit from the incense, dim the lights and sit in a comfortable chair with both feet on the ground.

You may also like to sit in the ‘easy pose’, otherwise known as Sukhasana. At this moment, ignite a cedar stick and take in the scent.

This beautiful moment should help you to reconnect to the earth and keep you firmly on the ground and relaxed, despite how stressed or restless your body has been all day. 

Use Essential Oils

Essential oils are becoming more and more popular with every year that passes, meaning that they are really easy to find.

This is because people are now understanding the positive and beneficial impact that they have on the body. 

Before using an essential oil, always dilute it with water, or mix it with other complementing oils.

Doing so will make the essential oil much safer to apply directly onto the skin, otherwise it may burn.

One of the ways to feel calm is by inhaling an essential oil’s scent.

This can create a moment of calm, as well as balance the full body of emotions, and support your well-being spiritually. 

A face mist with lavender in is a great way to have a few seconds of calm while putting the third-eye chakra back to being balanced. 

Another way is by adding a few drops of an essential oil to a hot steaming bowl of water, putting a towel on your head and feeling the oil’s full effect on the face.

This way you can spend a few minutes with your own thoughts.

Use Crystals

If you are into crystals, then you will know their benefits when it comes to aligning chakras.

Whether you are going for a singular gemstone necklace, or are carrying a couple of crystals in your pocket to help with anxiety, they can help with your everyday life.

If you are looking to target the sacral chakra, then look for a stone which has an orange color to it, just like the Calcite.

If you need some help with the heart chakra, then the Rose Quartz can help.

Team it with the likes of Amethyst or Black Obsidian, and you will have powerful vibrating energy that can target specific chakras.

Final Thoughts

If you find that you are feeling overwhelmed and restless, then you might need your chakras realigning. Fortunately, there are ways to do just that.

From using essential oils and reciting a mantra, to doing yoga and igniting incense, you will feel balanced in next to no time.
