Clearing Your Chakras in the Shower

We all have energetic centers in our body, called chakras. Shamans believe that these chakras, which each rule specific body functions and emotions, can become blocked.

A Shamanic practitioner can perform an illumination for a client in order to clear the blockage and heal the root cause.  However, for those of you who do not have access to a Shamanic practitioner, there is a simple exercise you can perform in the shower to help keep your chakras clear.

While Shamanic tradition maintains that there are 8 chakras, this exercise focuses on the 7 chakras that exist within our bodies. Each of our chakras is a spinning wheel of energy and when balanced flow in a clockwise direction. When our energy becomes blocked, our chakras may flow in a counterclockwise direction or completely stop moving.

You can restore the energetic balance to your chakras by following these steps:
  1. Starting at your root chakra, place your hand over your chakra and using your fingers wind the chakra in a counterclockwise direction. This will release the blocked energy.
  2. Continue unwinding your chakra until you feel that all of the blockages have been cleared.
  3. Rinse your fingers, and spin your chakras clockwise to restore the energetic balance.  
  4. Repeat these steps until you have cleared your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th chakras.
