Chakra clearing is the act of unclogging the energy centers in the body. According to a some philosophies, the body houses seven spinning vortexes or wheels of energy, called chakras, which line up along the spine and into the head. Some people call this energy a life force or a soul. Chakras can become blocked in a person with unresolved issues and misconceptions. When a chakra is not spinning or vibrating correctly, it is believed that the energy is not able to radiate properly and a person may experience feelings of fear, grief, anger, or dissatisfaction. There are believed to be several ways to initiate a chakra clearing, including meditation and treatment from an energy healer.

Many people believe that by using simple meditation techniques, chakras can be cleared and kept in shape to radiate positive energy and keep a person feeling centered and happy. This will in turn, it is believed, attract healthier and positive results from the world. Chakra clearing meditations are typically done in a calm and quiet area, inside or outside, with no other people around.

First, the meditator practices deep breathing exercises to calm the body. Then, starting at the bottom, he places both hands over the first chakra site. The meditator will visualize waves of energy, in the color associated with that specific chakra, flowing into the energy center. The chakra should be visualized as spinning freely and moving faster and faster until cleared.

Proceeding upwards, the meditator will move on to the next chakra, until each one has been cleared. There are many variations to chakra clearing meditations. Some practitioners hold the hands above the chakra locations and make slow circles, some use crystals and stones, and others visualize more chakra-specific details when working on each energy site.

Energy healers, such as Reiki practitioners, practice chakra clearing techniques using special hand placements around the body. Most treatments are done without actually touching the patient. When visiting an energy healer, the patient will lay on a massage table while the healer uses energy to clear the chakras. The energy healer will send positive energy in and take the negative energy out, using their body as a conduit. These healing sessions usually take an hour and can be very relaxing for the patient; it is not uncommon for a patient to fall asleep during a chakra clearing session.

Each chakra has its own characteristics including a special color, a designated sound, a unique vibration frequency, and a symbol. Each also corresponds with a certain personality trait. When an energy vortex is blocked, it is believed that it will interrupt that area of life for the person, whether consciously or unconsciously.
