How to Heal & Balance Your Chakra Centers

Chakra Analysis

The Kundalini Yoga Seven Chakra model is a great way to approach your personal development and spiritual growth.  I have given an overview of this model in the article Kundalini Yoga Seven Chakra System, and in this article I would like to give you some guidelines on how use this model to help you achieve your highest potential.

Essentially, Chakra points can be thought of as energy centers which govern various regions of your body, and are responsible for various personality traits and emotions.  Balancing and healing these centers in turn helps to rejuvenate and strengthen the corresponding organs and glands in that chakra’s region, as well as uplift the emotions governed by that chakra.

Chakra HealingThis healing and balancing process entails the following two steps.  Chakra analysis to help determine what center needs some work, and then yoga exercises and meditation techniques to help heal and balance that center.  For each chakra I have given some guidelines below to help accomplish both these steps.  I have provided a way to analyze yourself to see which chakra might be out of balance and then provided some treatment options to help you correct this imbalance.

Below is by no means a comprehensive chakra analysis guide, as that would be quite extensive, but it should give you enough information to make a solid judgment of where your weaknesses lie, so you can start to work on those areas.

The Chakra Analysis, Healing & Balancing Guide below points out the primary emotions and traits a particular chakra center is responsible for.  Then it provides 4 questions to ask yourself to help you understand how you are doing in that department.  If you are answering “yes’ to most of these questions for a particular chakra, it means you need to work on that center.  To do so, practice the yoga and meditation techniques provided to heal and balance that particular chakra (these are links to the actual articles with those techniques).

Chakra Analysis, Healing & Balancing Guide:


1. Root Chakra: 

Physical Security, Fear, Health


  1. You  feel physically insecure and weak.
  2. You have constant health issues and illnesses.
  3. You have a lot of fear.
  4. You don’t feel connected to the Earth and a part of nature.

Yoga & Meditation Techniques to Help Heal Root Chakra:

Kundalini Yoga Crow Pose for Root Chakra Cleansing
Kundalini Yoga Cat-Cow Pose for Fighting Fear


2. Sex Chakra: 

Creativity & Self-Expression


  1. You suffer from sexual dysfunction.
  2. You have trouble expressing yourself and conveying your emotions.
  3. You lack creativity.
  4. Your life is dull and monotonous.

3. Navel Chakra:

Willpower & Anger

  1. You lack willpower and determination.
  2. You have anger issues.
  3. You have control and power issues.
  4. You have low energy.

From the above I am sure you see why Kundalini Yoga emphasizes working on the Navel Chakra before all others.  Without it functioning properly, you have neither the energy nor the willpower to bring about positive change in yourself.

Yoga & Meditation Techniques to Help Heal Navel Chakra:

Kundalini Yoga Stretch Pose
Core Abdominal Power Yoga Set
Yoga Ab Exercises & Workout for Toned Stomach
Kapalbhati Yoga Pranayama


4. Heart Chakra: 

Love, Grief, Forgiveness


  1. You have a hard time forgiving others and have many enemies.
  2. You are often depressed and sad.
  3. You don’t feel much empathy or compassion for others.
  4. You are not charitable.

From the above, you will see why many yoga and meditation teachers feel that the heart center is the place to concentrate one’s efforts.  This center is especially important for those drawn to the devotional path to spiritual growth.

5. Throat Chakra: 

Communication, Thinking


  1. You have a hard time communicating your thoughts and ideas.
  2. You are not a clear thinker.
  3. You are not a good listener.
  4. You gossip too much.

Yoga & Meditation Techniques to Help Heal Throat Chakra:

Hatha Yoga Shoulder Stand


6. Brow Chakra (Third Eye):

Intuition, Psychic Powers


  1. You don’t have much intuitive ability.
  2. You don’t feel like you have much guidance from within.
  3. You have not experienced much that is out of the ordinary.
  4. You find the world dull and mundane.

The Third Eye is another chakra which is often the focus of early kundalini work.  This is because opening and balancing this center provides you access to inner guidance and the ability to “feel” your way through life.

7. Crown Chakra: 

Spirituality, Bliss


  1. You are not at all spiritually motivated.
  2. You have not experienced much in terms of spirituality or transcendence.
  3. You don’t see the poetry of life and nature.
  4. You are too materialistic and frivolous.

Chakra Analysis & Healing Summary:

These guidelines will get you started on analyzing the state of your chakras and determining where you need the most help.  I would suggest picking the weakest chakra and working on it for 1 to 2 weeks and then re-assessing yourself to measure the progress.  From there move to the next weakest chakra and continue on from there.

I will be adding to this document more yoga and meditation techniques to help open and heal various chakras as I publish them on the website, so be on the lookout for that.  Remember a balanced and healthy chakra system, means a balanced and healthy life.  Have you done your Yoga, Pranayama & Meditation for today ?

    I love working with the chakras. The root chakra is one I work with the most when I want to feel more grounded.

    The crown and third eye chakra are also important for developing your psychic ability.

    Great article…Thanks!

    I do agree with you. Chakra Meditation is really very useful for us. It helps in reducing stress and anxiety. It’s very useful for the people who have depression. It provides a lot of relief and relaxation to the patients.

    Hi Sinduja,

    Those guidelines are for when you are creating a particular yoga set. For starting chakra work, Navel Chakra or Third Eye is a good place to start.

    For you I suggest Navel Chakra as that will help you with your confidence, willpower and self-esteem as well.

    You can begin with any of the abdominal sets on the website. Let me know if you need the links.

    Glad to hear you are going to take up a serious yoga and meditation practice.

    Hey, I have recently been very interested in the teachings on chakras. You said, it is essential to work from the lower chakras in guidelines for yoga. So, is it ok to immeditely work on a higher chakra? Which of these chakras is essential for confidence and self-esteem … I always seem to have an issue with those.

    Hey Alex,

    Keep at it, specially since it’s working :-). The threshold of how long to meditate differs from person to person. 30 minutes is very good. A rule of thumb often used, is 5 minutes more than you are comfortable doing is a good amount of time for beginners.

    Also, many meditators have realized that 2 times per day is also very good. So 20 mins 2/day is often more helpful that 40 mins 1/day. But, this varies from person to person as well.

    For those interested here is an article discussing: How Long Should You Meditate for Daily.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.

    uhh…reading this, i see that i have problems in pretty much every chakra, although it has been getting better ever since i increased my meditation from 20 minutes to 30 minutes. To me it seems that the difference between 20 and 30 minutes is enormous…its just really hard to motivate myself to do it :P

    Hi Alex,

    Reiki and other energy techniques are certainly useful tools for further cleansing and uplifting one’s system. Chakra meditation, yoga techniques and pranayamas though are also geared towards the removal of blockages and when done correctly will clear negative emotions and negative energy as well.

    Thanks for sharing your resources with us.

    Chakra meditation is really powerful. My experience is that the solar-plexus chakra is extra responsive for men and it’s know as the male energy center.

    I strongly recommend chakra meditation hand in hand with reiki healing which helps remove negative emotions that have a tendency to linger in the system after chakra work.

    Meditate and feel great +_+
