Simple techniques you can do at home to unblock your chakras, Bernadette Klemm, RMT

Would you like to learn some simple techniques you can do at home to unblock and maintain your chakras?

Often times when a client comes to see me for a Reiki treatment I find that one or more of their 7 main chakras are blocked or not fully functioning. This can have a profound effect on their health, both physically and emotionally. So what are chakras and why should you care? According to Chakras are by definition, energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all it's processes, from organ function to the immune system and emotions. We can commonly count 7 chakras positioned throughout our body, from the base of our spine to the crown of our head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, that is depicted through a specific chakra color, and governs specific functions that help make you, well, human. 


Introducing The 7 Major Chakras


Let’s start with a brief definition. What is a chakra? A chakra (pronounced “cha”-“kra” with a resounding “ch”) is a center of energy. Originating from Sanskrit, it literally means “wheel” by association with its function as a vortex of spinning energy interacting with various physiological and neurological systems in the body.


Because of my nursing background I like to explain it to my clients like this: We all have physical bodies that include our organs, blood and body parts. We also have our etheric body which makes up our energy field. Our etheric body can be measured approximately 3-5 feet from our physical body. People often know it as our aura. I often give the example of knowing when someone is standing behind you when you did not physically see them come close. You just "feel" someone standing behind you. That is because your etheric body is sensing/feeling their etheric body. Basically they have invaded your personal space (their energy is touching your energy!). So imagine the chakras are like the energy organs of your etheric body. They feed vital energy to all of our physical body's systems ie: neurological system, digestive system, etc. The energy is transported via meridians that I like to equate to our veins transporting blood to our organs. When we are experiencing health problems either physically or mentally that is our body's way of saying, "Hey pay attention to this area!". Experiencing a blockage or disruption of energy flow to one of your chakras will result in a physical symptom. By working to keep the energy flow balanced and moving properly we are creating a state of homeostasis that promotes health and well-being. There are some things that you can do daily at home, on your own, without having to see a Reiki Practitioner that will help to ensure that you have healthy chakras. If you are experiencing a lot of physical symptoms or mental symptoms such as depression, it is recommended to schedule an appointment with your physician before scheduling with your Reiki Practitioner to rule out anything medically wrong. Once you are medically cleared, you can schedule an appointment with your Reiki Practitioner for several sessions to open those areas and then continue to practice these things at home to keep the chakras open and flowing that beautiful life force energy. If you have seen a Reiki Practitioner to open your chakras and then did not make lifestyle changes, your body will quickly return to it's unhealthy state. Having one treatment may not be enough to ensure that you are completely brought back to homeostasis. You did not get this way over night so you should not expect that one treatment will correct a lifetime of neglect.  

Aura Body Chart

 Below is a chart that you can refer to and see what you can do to help activate your chakra energy centers. By saying the sound/vowel/music associated with each chakra you are creating a frequency that corresponds to the matching chakra frequency. Working with a Singing Bowl is a great way to balance with sound therapy!~

The colors are also important because each chakra has a color associated with it. Listed are also foods that you can eat as well as affirmations you can practice saying. 


By incorporating these simple things into your life you can help your body do what it was designed to do, heal it self. I, as a Reiki Master, will often times go over charts such as these and give my clients this information to practice at home. Just by taking a few moments each day to be conscious of how you are feeling, what thoughts are you putting out (because our thoughts create their own energy frequency) and what we put into our body, we can help keep our energy centers balanced. If you find that you are experiencing a lot of dysfunction in one or more of these areas I would recommend scheduling an appointment with a qualified Reiki Practitioner near you or contact Reiki by Bernadette to schedule a distant Reiki session at
