How to Balance Your Chakras

Materials Needed:


  • Two glasses of water
  • A pendulum either in copper or made from a natural stone (do not use glass)
  • Chair (in case you’d like to sit)



IMPORTANT: Drink a full glass of water before AND after. Water helps to clear spiritual toxins from our energy bodies without the process causing undesired side effects like headache, dizziness, nausea or mood swings.

First, figure out the health of your chakras.
Depending on what is YES and what is NO for you & your pendulum, a YES swing means the chakra is fine, NO means it’s out of balance or perhaps even blocked. Size & speed of the swing or rotation will denote the severity of a block or imbalance.
Do this for all 7 main chakras from ROOT to CROWN, so from the base to the top.
Once you know where the imbalances are, you balance your chakras from CROWN to ROOT.
Just hold the pendulum up over your crown until it begins to move (this can cause your arm to hurt if it takes a while). It will most likely begin to swing in a NO direction if there’s an imbalance. Wait for it to stop swinging. It will stop. If the chakra is healthy, the pendulum will swing in a YES direction. It will keep swinging in an ever widening arch or circle as the energy works to further balance the chakra.

If the pendulum moves in a NO direction, you may with your free hand stop the swing. Once you have done that, ask your angels and guides to balance and heal that chakra. Allow your pendulum to start swinging.
In MOST cases it will kind of jiggle in place for a few seconds before it slowly begins to move in a YES direction. As it sends more healing energy into the chakra the YES movement will become more pronounced.
Allow your pendulum to do the work. Do NOT stop the movement. Allow the movement to continue until it stops on its own. Once it has stopped you will know that chakra is now cleared and balanced. Then move on to the next chakra until you have completed all 7 of the major chakras.
We have chakras in every joint in our bodies and all organs possess chakras as well. If you’d like to give yourself a nice overall  healing also focus on the chakras within the palms of your hands, your fingers,  elbows, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, heels, soles of your feet and toes.
When you’re finished, give thanks & drink another glass of water.
That’s all there is to it.
It is also a good idea if you do this in the future to purchase a pendulum that will only be for your chakras. Be sure it is made from either copper, which is an excellent conductor of energy, or some natural stone.
My favorite choices for the stone are amethyst (associated with the crown chakra), lapis lazuli (associated with the third eye chakra), and aventurine (associated with the heart chakra). It is best to choose a stone that is known to be associated with one of the seven main chakras.  


Until next time, wishing you & yours many blessings!

The importance of color regarding balance and harmony of the human psyche and physical well-being cannot be over-stated.  Inspiring Butterflies


goes beyond the parameters of an oracle deck.  It has 27 cards and yes, there is also a guidebook and the cards can be used as an oracle.  However, Inspiring Butterflies is much more than this.

Also containing a 7 3/4 X 5 3/4″ spiral-bound journal filled with exercises meant to be done over 27 days at the reader’s own pace, the cards serve as a colorful tool that can bring increased balance and harmony to the hcakras if used with that intention.  As a reiki master-teacher the possibilities of Inspiring Butterflies intrigued me.

The intent behind Inspiring Butterfliesis threefold:  to serve “as a tool for insight,


self development, and to connect with higher consciousness” (guidebook, p. 3).  Each butterfly card through its colors resonates with a particular chakra.  color affects us emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.  Color acts on our subconscious and each of the seven main chakras is associated with a particular color.  The colors of each card of Inspiring Butteflies allows a channel of healing energy to be opened.  The 3 1/8 X 5 1/8″ 48-page guidebook begins with information about the general meanings of particular colors and a brief discussion of the associations of each of the seven main chakras.  The remainder of the guidebook goes into how to use these cards for healing, an interpretaioin and affirmation for each card, and concludes with meditations on several cards that correspond to the seven main chakras so there is a meditation included for each of the seven main chakras.

Inspiring Butterflies is a multi-level tool that can be used for balancing and harmonizing the chakras, healing, meditation, and as an oracle.  But wait!  There’s more!

Included with the deck and the guidebook is a spiral-bound journal meant to be used as a 27-day course working with the Inspiring Butterflies deck.  The journal has 128 pages and concludes with 7 lined pages for additional notes.  Coincidentally (or not) there are also 7 main chakras so the reader may wish to assign one page per chakra.


The journal begins with a brief discussion of the 7 main chakras and their associations.  Each Inspiring Butterfly card is assigned a day (1 – 27).  Each card’s section runs 4 pages.  The first page is a full color depiction of the card, its title, and a positive phrase.  The second page begins with a discussion of the energy of that particular card.  The third page offers an exercise you can do involving the card and a writing area is provided to note your personal thoughts an d observations about the card and exercises.  The fourth page includes an assignment for that day and a positive affirmation.  Space for note taking is provided on the third and fourth pages of each card’s section of the journal.

Inspiring Butterflies comes houses in a 12 X 6 X 1 3/4″ hinged heavy duty laminated cardboard box with a hinged lid and magnetic closure.  The cards rest in a recessed well beneath the guidebook and measure 5 1/16 X 3 1/16″.  The guidebook rests on top of the cards.  In a larger recessed area rests the journal.  All together it’s a very attractive presentation of a unique product that I know readers would find to be helpful and also inspiring.  This is a beautiful set for butterfly lovers and for those of us interested in experiencing new tools of self discovery.
