Chakra Balancing Ritual
What you need:
- Chakra chime candle set
- Lighter or Matches
- Chime Candle Holder or Ceramic Dish
- Journal and pen
If you have any signs of an unbalanced or overactive chakra the solution is unblocking it via meditation. This is done by envisioning colored light washing over each chakra zone (E.G. Yellow light over solar plexus).
I envisioned this ritual to be very long and deep. But you may adapt this to fit your lifestyle and schedule as needed!
This is my seven day chakra chime candle cleansing ritual. Start your ritual at the beginning of your week (I.E. Sunday- Saturday or Monday- Sunday). I recommend doing this ritual once to twice a year but really anytime a large life event occurs.
You will focus on one chakra for each day of the week. On the first day you will focus on the crown chakra. Start by focusing your intentions onto the Affirmation of that chakra. Spend your day journaling about how you are feeling, embrace this chakra today! When you are ready light the corresponding candle for example the crown chakra is white. Relax and begin meditating. Envision the white light of the flame washing over that chakra zone (I.E. the head) and cleansing your energy. Let your chakra absorb that light and heal, repair any unbalance. The candle will burn for about an hour. I like to meditate for the entire hour then spend my evening reflecting and journaling. But you may choose to meditate for thirty minutes then reflecting till the candle burns out.
Repeat this daily each day of the week a new chakra. It is always good to practice lots of self care during this week. Once you have completed each chakra you will have done a full cleanse. You are done but, you can choose to do a full chakra meditation on day eight for one final cleanse of all. Starting day nine refreshed and renewed.
TIP: You can stick your candle to a plate or dish by warming the bottom with a lighter then sticking it directly on the dish. The wax will melt to the dish and you can scape clean when you are done. USE OF THIS METHOD MAY RESULT IN DAMAGE TO CERTAIN CERAMICS USE WITH CAUTION.
