A chakra system that is in balance is a prerequisite for overall health and harmony of the energy field. After charging any chakras that require it, you will then proceed to rebalance the entire chakra system. You will do this by raising or lowering the activity, the radiatory strength, of any chakra exhibiting under or overactivity?balancing its activity level with the other chakras, so that all are radiating with the same strength.
Once a chakra is in an adequately charged state, with pure energy functioning according to its own true color nature, its activity level can then be raised or lowered through the addition of lower or higher colors?colors above or below its own native true color. The seven colors of the chakra system are akin to seven energy levels?as one moves from red to violet, each color has the nature of a successively higher level of vibration. To apply a color that is lower or higher than a chakra?s own native true color has the effect of raising or lowering the chakras activity level?the higher or lower energy level will alter the level of stimulation, the radiant strength of the chakra in its own true color range, accordingly.
Whereas the intrinsic color of the chakra itself was applied to restore color or treat impurity during charging, rebalancing of the chakra system is accomplished by altering the activity level of each over- or under-stimulated chakra by treating the chakra to be rebalanced with lower or higher true colors, thereby lowering or raising the level of its activity by the influence of this lower or higher energy level. By doing this to whichever chakras are contributing to a pattern of imbalance, the chakra system can be brought to a level and balanced condition. Rebalancing of the chakra system, in this way, works with the chakras only?it does not directly affect the higher layers of aura. A balanced chakra system, however, has a far healthier and more harmonious influence on the higher aura layers and the entire energy field and life of the patient than does one with a significant pattern of imbalance. To rebalance the patient?s chakra system you may begin, again, at the uppermost or lowermost chakra in need, as you wish, depending on your own preference or the needs of your patient. To rebalance chakras, use the following hand positions and procedures:
Place your hands on the first chakra you wish to rebalance, in the hands-overlapping hand position you use during hand placement (hands on the body surface with the right palm centered over the chakra and the left hand gently overlapping). Use this for all (except the 1st and 7th) chakras. Now visualize the symbol that is associated with the chakra (the Circle for the 1st, 2nd or 3rd chakras; the Trine for the 4th, 5th or 6th chakras; the Star for the 7th chakra) in the next lower or higher color to the chakra?s native color, depending on whether the activity level of the chakra needs to be lowered or raised. Note that you are not using a colored symbol from the basic progression?in rebalancing, unlike charging, you are always using the symbol related to the chakra, and not changing the symbol as you vary the color. At the same time that you visualize the symbol associated with the chakra in the next lower or higher color, also ?see,? in your mind?s eye, a cloud of that color surrounding your hands?especially as a cloud or layer of color below the hand, gently penetrating into your patient. You are the entire act of visualizing the symbol in the color, and the cloud of that color around the hands, and you intend and sense a lowering or raising of the activity level of the chakra.
After seeking to lower or raise the activity level of the chakra by using the next-lowest or next-highest color in this way for a few moments, check your progress through the use of an intuitive reading?through visualization of the body profile?to determine whether or not the activity level has moved closer to the level state you are seeking for the chakra system. Is there still a dip, or bump, at that chakra location? If so, you must then use a stronger influence?a color two steps removed from that chakra?s native color?so that the even lower (or higher) energy level will work to affect the chakra?s level of activation in a stronger way. Treat the chakra in the exact same way as before, yet using this even lower (or higher) color for a few moments more, and then once again check your progress using the body profile. Continue treating this chakra with successively lower or higher colors until you feel that the proper activity level of the chakra has been restored.
Sometimes chakras will only require the application of one higher or lower color to ?bring them into line.? At other times a chakra will require a succession of higher or lower colors to raise or lower its activity, respectively. Often chakras will require application of a color two or even three steps below or above their native color. You will notice that when treating low chakras that are overactive or high chakras that are underactive, you will only have a limited number of color steps available. In these cases, it is not usually difficult to use what lower or higher colors are available to rebalance the chakra, yet it may sometimes require a longer application.
Always start, however, with the next-higher or next-lower color to that chakras own native color?do not ?jump? two or more steps at a time?because it is far gentler on the chakra system and the patient to gradually increase or decrease the energy level applied to affect the activity level of the chakra. Increase or decrease the color applied one color step at a time, until whatever color difference is necessary to correct the activity level has been reached. Use the procedure above to rebalance each chakra which requires it?working either from lower to higher chakras or from higher to lower. When you have finished rebalancing the chakras, they should all radiate with equal strength?no one chakra will possess more force than another. They will appear as an even rainbow. Check your progress using visualization of the body profile.
Note again that the higher levels of aura are not treated in rebalancing?one remains on the body surface, with hands on the chakra being treated, when altering the chakra activity levels. Only the front of the body is treated in this manner. Rebalancing the chakras in this manner is a gentle, yet effective method of altering the activity of the chakras, by beginning with nearer colors, rather than immediately employing a much higher or lower color, such as a color opposite, which would have a harsher effect. Such schemes of balancing chakras are often ineffective, too.
You may wonder why the application of other colors is done after the chakra?s own color is applied to purify it during charging, and whether the addition of the other colors can render it impure again. Charging and rebalancing, although both using color, are fundamentally different processes. The addition of the chakra?s own color, during charging, is performed to correct an impure functioning of the native energy in the chakra?to strengthen and purify its native energetic functioning. Once the intrinsic energy is pure and strong in its color, the addition of higher and lower colors or energy levels, during rebalancing, has a different effect?a stimulating or quieting effect on the activity level of the chakra. Adding lower or higher true colors to a charged chakra do not introduce impurities; the addition of a pure color to a chakra cannot pollute it again.
There are a few special considerations to be observed when rebalancing the 1st or 7th chakras. Overactivity of the 7th chakra is treated by placing the hands on the top of the head in the same way as during the regular series of hand positions and applying the lower colors as needed, using the above procedure. Underactivity of the 1st chakra is treated by placing the hands about 10 inches above the 1st chakra, diagonally out, and applying the higher colors as required (the hands are never placed on the body of the patient at the first chakra position), using the above procedure.
Underactivity of the 7th chakra or overactivity of the 1st chakra cannot be treated using color, however, as you may understand. There are no colors that we use that are higher than violet or lower than red. Underactivity of the 7th chakra, can, however, be treated with the Star, as follows:
Position the hands about 10 to 12 inches above the crown of the head, and visualizing the Star without color. You must intend and sense, using the power of your will, to increase the activity of the 7th chakra and restore it to balance.
Overactivity of the 1st chakra may be treated as follows:
Place the hands about 3 inches above the first chakra (diagonally out in front of the body), and visualizing the Circle, without color, using the will to decrease the activity of this chakra, and bringing it into balance. Use the force of your will when using these techniques?you will find that there is a strong bond between you and your patient when you do this.
