Chakra or Cakra is a Sanskrit word for wheel of energy. That’s why you’ll feel different things when the chakra rotates in your system of chakras. It works by pushing your life force head to toe in the human body via the central channel. 

There’s a lot to learn about the seven main chakras starting at pituitary glands to higher consciousness, self-expression, positive energy, and joy flowing into the lower chakras. 

You’ll feel different energies when the chakra is balanced and unbalanced.

Signs Of A Balanced Root Chakra: How To Feel And Heal Root Chakra Energy?

Called Muladhara chakra in Sanskrit, Root Chakra is the first of the primary chakras responsible for healing energy flow. Root refers to stability and grounding in the chakra system. It’s the first chakra accountable for the health of your physical body. 

You’ll feel calm, courageous, passionate, clear, and creative when it’s balanced or cleansed. On the other hand, a blocked root chakra shows warning signs like fatigue, anger, and depression. 

Ways To Test Root Energy Centers 

The best way to test if your root energy is active or inactive is by holding a pendulum over the chakra location. Your Muladhara chakra is located at the base of the spine in the lower abdomen. 

So, if the pendulum moves or shows spinning energy in the clockwise direction, your root chakra is active. Easy right? Try it today!

Ways To Heal Muladhara

Muladhara chakra contains the power to withstand challenges like Mother Earth. As this particular chakra relates to the Goddess Gaia, you’ll find it helpful to do chakra meditation in the open air. 

Chant the seed mantra of LAM at this time.

You can also practice yoga poses that target the base of the spine, such as Camel Pose, Garland Pose, Easy Pose, or Child’s Pose.

Combining the yoga postures for the first chakra with meditation is excellent. Experts recommend unblocking the root chakra with crystals like red jasper, ruby, garnet, black obsidian, or black tourmaline.

The color orange is the aura energy of the second chakra of Svadhisthana. The second energy body is located in the lower body as it heals the sexual organs. 

Color orange chakra is associated with the life force energy of Kundalini Shakti, where your personal power resides. It can help you build the courage to withstand challenges. 

Ways To Test Sacral Chakra

The second chakra is best tested with a crystal pendulum. You can do the same as you did for the root chakra, but this time hold the pendulum over your pelvic area. 

If the crystal energy moves, your kundalini is free-flowing and blocked if it’s still. 

When there’s too much energy around the pelvic region, you’ll feel superior. This may make you feel at your best when balanced. And when there’s too little sacral chakra energy, other chakras will also suffer immensely. 

Ways To Heal Sacral Chakra

The best way to cleanse out the negativity blocking your creative expression in the Svadhisthana is with meditation

You can dwell on the color orange lotus with six petals denoting different stages of consciousness and self-expression. Next, chant the beej mantra of VAM repeatedly till your sacral regions vibrate. 

Alternatively, try yoga poses targeting healing the lower cakra with Goddess Pose, Pigeon Pose, and Frog Pose.

Signs Of A Balanced Solar Plexus Chakra: How To Feel Or Balance The Solar Plexus Energy? 

We know about the sun around which the earth rotates. But do you know there’s a sun inside the human body too? 

The third chakra is called the Manipura chakra, as it’s the seat of your personal sun and power in the body of seven chakras located in the navel. 

When this particular chakra is balanced, you’ll feel luck, health, success, and inspiration. On the flip side, underactive navel chakra can cause fear, infertility, and fatigue.

Ways To Test Solar Plexus Chakra

As it’s located in the upper abdomen, you can check whether your solar plexus or celiac plexus chakra is active by holding a pendulum over the spine area. 

If your solar plexus chakra is balanced, the pendulum will show you how or rotate in a clockwise direction. When there’s no movement, assume this is one of the weak lower body chakras for you!

Ways To Heal Celiac Plexus Chakra

Activating your personal power makes you feel your best. 

This is the chakra energy for personal power, and that’s why you can get into a meditative state quickly when the solar plexus chakra is active. If it’s not, use third chakra healing crystals to cleanse with Reiki.

The Manipura chakra is easy to open if you practice yoga poses like Bow Pose, Boat Pose, Plank Pose, and Warrior II yoga. 

Experts recommend meditation by visualizing the Manipura chakra symbol of a yellow lotus with ten petals. You can also find a comfortable space and chant the beej mantra of RAM loudly for 20 minutes to an hour. 

Signs Of A Balanced Heart Chakra: How To Feel Or Open The Heart Energy? 

When it comes to the fourth chakra of the heart, the Sanskrit name of the cakra is Anahata Chakra. It governs the physical heart region and the emotional heart. That’s why the heart chakra is associated with love. 

A balanced Anahata teaches you to love yourself, others, and nature while attracting abundance and prosperity into your life. However, an imbalanced heart chakra causes betrayal, heartbreak, and financial loss. 

Ways To Test Heart Chakra

You can test the fourth chakra by repeating the crystal pendulum technique. 

Just hold your pendulum over the thyroid gland or the center of the chest to connect with the heart chakra first. This upper body energy center can be held over the heart region to watch movements. 

If you see stable clockwise motions, your Anahata radiates auras in green and pink colors besides being healthy. 

Ways To Heal Heart Chakra

Your heart chakra should be active to form deeper connections with people, the universe, and yourself. 

You can activate the Anahata chakra by practicing yoga postures like the Camel Pose, Locust Pose, Dancer’s Pose, or Cow Pose. 

You can also practice Anahata meditation with yoga in the open air as its ruling element is Vayu or Air. Visualize the symbol of the green lotus with twelve petals unfolding in your heart. 

To heal your Anahata quickly, chant the seed syllable YAM repeatedly. 

Signs Of A Balanced Throat Chakra: How To Feel Or Activate The Throat Chakra Energy? 

The fifth chakra is located on the neck and is called Vishuddha, meaning “purest” in Sanskrit. 

The Vishuddha chakra controls the spiritual and physical voice among the seven chakras in the human body.

Activating the throat energy centers is good for developing communication skills, self-esteem, self-confidence, and creativity. A blocked throat chakra holds your self-respect and spiritual purpose too.

Ways To Test Throat Chakra

To check a blocked throat chakra, you just need to hold the crystal pendulum over the particular chakra location. You can do so over the neck or just above the thyroid gland. 

Watch for movements, and you’ll know if your Vishuddha chakra is active. 

Ways To Heal Throat Chakra

The culprit of your poor creative energy is a throat chakra blockage. 

To heal the Vishuddha chakra, you can do a breathwork meditation under the blue sky to improve self-expression. Try to imagine the sixteen petals of a sky blue lotus and chant the seed mantra HAM to activate the voice energy centers. 

You can also open the color blue energy source using yoga postures. Try Plow Pose, Cobra Pose, Lion’s Breath, Fish Pose, Camel Pose, or Locust Pose. 

Signs Of A Balanced Third Eye Chakra: How To Feel Or Program The Third Eye Chakra Energy? 

Going higher up to the sixth of the seven chakras, you enter the realm of psychic abilities. The third eye chakra relates to the spiritual eye located between your eyebrows. It’s called Ajna chakra in Sanskrit.

When open and active, the indigo aura cakra increases your confidence, courage, intuition, clairvoyance, foresight, and self-esteem. 

However, an overactive or underactive third eye can point to delusions, paranoia, fear, loneliness, and distrust. 

Ways To Test Third Eye Chakra

Tapping into the higher consciousness starts with the Ajna chakra located in the upper body. It’s one of the upper chakras responsible for your gut feelings.

To know whether the sixth cakra is active or inactive, you should hold a crystal pendulum over the space between your eyes. 

Lay down and watch the pendulum’s movement to confirm whether your cakra is off-trail or stable.

Ways To Heal Third Eye Chakra

Your spiritual well-being, deeper connections with the universe, and reality itself are dependent on third eye chakra balance. 

The best way to align it to the right path is by healing the body and psyche with yoga poses like the Child’s Pose, Eagle Pose, and Tree Pose. It’ll help you develop the psychic abilities you have.  

To open it easily, you can also use Ajna chakra crystals like blue sapphire, tanzanite, azurite, or amethyst.

But Ajna is better unblocked with meditation as an upper chakra by chanting the seed syllable OM.

Signs Of A Balanced Crown Chakra: How To Feel Or Sense The Crown Chakra Energy?

One of the seven chakras not in the physical body but often show up on top of the head, the Crown chakra is called the Sahasrara Chakra in Sanskrit. 

People with balanced crown chakra energies have a purple aura around their forehead. It indicates the life force energy flowing into the secondary higher chakras into the higher realms. 

The seventh chakra means enlightenment. When it’s off-kilter, you may suffer from nightmares, curses, evil eyes, and a lot of negativities in life. 

Ways To Test Crown Chakra

The Sahasrara chakra gives you the courage and strength to withstand mental, physical, and spiritual challenges. To test if it’s open or closed, you can hold the crystal pendulum over the top of the head. 

As it’s one of the upper chakras, you can lay down while doing it.

If the crystal head moves, your crown is in balance and vice-versa. Make sure to test and treat crown chakra imbalances because they can affect your perspective and spiritual destiny itself. 

Ways To Heal Crown Chakra

When you begin to work with the subtle body in the seventh chakra, you’ll realize you can communicate with guardian angels and spirits. It’s one of the chakras that helps you unlock the mysteries of higher consciousness.

Hence, do yoga that focuses on the upper body, like Headstand, Rabbit Pose, Plank Pose, Eagle Pose, and Corpse Pose. 

Chakra meditation of Agya chakra under the night sky or moonlight is an excellent way to flush out the negativity blocking it. 

Can You Feel Chakras Vibrate? How To Feel Chakra Energy? 

Yes, when certain chakras open, you can feel vibrations in your physical body apart from the mind. It can move from one chakra point to cover the entire body of the chakra system.

This generally happens when you open multiple chakras at once, from the lower abdomen to the forehead. 

If you feel sensations of healing, try more energy-opening techniques!

The seven main chakras can show up with different effects. You learned meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, foods, yoga, and sound therapy to heal and feel sensations of chakra energies today. 

Virtues like self-esteem, courage, creative energy, and happiness are essential to feeling chakra energies. 

I suggest regularly opening and feeling your Muladhara chakra and Manipura chakra. When you do so, you’ll feel the kundalini shakti vibrate along the spine to the top of the head, creating a central channel of healing in the body.
