Essential oils + chakras
It all begins with energy…
There is a powerful energy (Chi (Chinese), Ki (Japanese) or Prana(Indian)) that flows within us connecting the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. It connects us to our higher selves- Self, Source energy, and the oneness of pure, unconditional Love.
When this energy is flowing freely we can live from a place of responding vs. reacting, forgiving vs. frustrated, compassionate vs. judgemental, high vibe vs. low vibe, and LOVE vs. FEAR.
HOW THIS WORKS:
Everyone, and everything is made up of energy. Moving particles that vibrate at different frequencies. This is measured in megahertz. This energy is processed by our minds and bodies which are both in a constant state of correlation with surrounding frequencies. Essential oils and crystals have some of the highest vibrational frequencies of anything found on earth. When we introduce something like an essential oil to our bodies, whether it’s aromatically, topically or internally (please make sure the oils you use are indicated for topical and internal use, most are not, HERE are the only essential oils I use), our energy will try to synchronize with that high vibration.
Chakras are energy centers/vortexes within the body. There are 7 chakras. When energy is flowing freely through these centers they promote vibrancy, health, balance, peace + harmony. However, when these energy centers are blocked it can lead to dis-ease in the mind, body and spirit.
Energetic blocks can be released through tools and practices like reiki, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, crystals + ESSENTIAL OILS.
Here are the 7 Chakras along with crystals, yoga poses and essential oils that can release blocks within them. The essential oils recommended can be used individually or blended together however you choose.
