Healing and the Chakra energy system.
Healing is an art and has been in existence for many centuries. As founder of Crystal Heart Psychics I (Caroline) qualified as a Reiki and Seichem Tara Mai Master even though I discovered my gift naturally for my horse getting ill.
Seichem came out of Egyptian times, so it does say how long healing has been on our earth.
However there are many healing systems around the world, reiki, seichem, theta healing and many more. Acupuncture and Shiatsu all work off the same principles, flow of energy â€“ namely chi, life force, prana. This is our bio energy field otherwise known as an aura.
Acupuncture uses the meridian system and this is also the same is shiatsu, energy healing systems tend to use chakra’s, otherwise seen as energy centres which sit over the human endocrine system.
A naturalÂ born healer is intuitive, we are guided by spirit of where to heal and throughout years of studying and learning, whilst I (Caroline) understood in the main the different healing systems principles, my guidance comes intuitively and through what I channel through spirit. However it is always wise to train properly and through the right channels as you do have to learn protection.
However in my studies over the years, most systems, work on the same principles, the flow of energy through a persons body and ensuring they are aligned.
So you ask how can this help when having a psychic reading. Over our life we encounter problems we build up negative energy from those negative events.
So predominantly a healer, I learnt that reading for a client, helps a person understand on a mental level what is happening, then once we have that we can work on the energetic aspect to. Using both energy and psychology combined do treat the whole.
We all feel low when we have experienced a negative life situation and the trick is not to hang onto it both mentally or energetically.
I hear you say well how can a telephone psychic reading help ? Well it can, Â energy travels just like sound waves. Hence why even as a healer and psychic I can help over the phone.
As much as psychic readings are meant to be fun and can be, we also deal with life guidance on a daily basis and with that as a psychic reader and healer for many years, I learnt I can heal aswell as offer a psychic reading over the phone. Just by removing that little bit of negative energy attached around an event that has ocurred it does help. Rest assured this is spoken from years of experience.
Below I have discussed the chakra healing system and the different chakras that work energetically with the bodies physical function.
Most healing systems talk about meridian points and chakras. Below I have explained the chakra healing system.
Where there are seven energy centres in the body parallel the spine, and each one has certain qualities and associations. A healer will look to balance and realign chakras to encourage optimum energy flow.
Base Chakra – First Chakra – Kundalini or Root Chakra
The first chakra is known as a the Kundalini chakra, the root chakra or base chakra. It is situated at the base of or tail end of the spine. It is represented by the red Maladhara mandala (root support), the element of fire and it is also symbolised by a snake or a dragon. The first chakra is the foundation of the physical body; it stimulates vital forces throughout our body and assists in keeping us grounded to the earth. It influences our immune system, our energy, basic impulses, instincts, endurance and fight or flight reactions. This chakra is the base of the six other Chakras and it deals with the body’s survival including food, shelter and protection.
Relationships in our early life influence the wellbeing of this chakra. It helps to activate our energy and stimulates activity, exercise, action and vitality, if these early relationships were easy going and of good quality, later survival issues will be easy. If there was damage to this chakra caused in early life that has not been healed then there will be problems encountered in day to day life that prevent us from moving on though our development. The root chakra is relevant to achievements in the material world, permanence, strength of character, patience, endurance and safety.
When this chakra is balanced we feel healthy, alive free, optimistic, happy, steady and full of vitality.

The person will have concerns for others as it promotes tolerance and patience which in turn helps us to relate with others in a positive manner.

It is the foundation of the metal body, and it enables us to pick up vibrations and essences from people, places and things, it also involves personal power, energy and self-control, emotional issues and issues of self-acceptance. This chakra physically influences muscles, stomach, digestion, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, metabolism and the nervous system.
When the third chakra is balanced it brings the capacity to accomplish that which we want and allows us to relax and enjoy these accomplishments. We are able to successfully wield our own power and will which attracts prosperity and balance in turn allowing us to feel safe and secure. We are more disciplined and better able to organise, able to deal with changes and see that they lead to new and better things. Life seems better and we are able to concentrate on learning.
A lack of balance in the third chakra may be due to a lack of balance in the first two Chakras. If this chakra is not working properly it is inclined to create negative influences in the physical this can be seen in the form of ulcers, digestive problems or liver and pancreas complaints, it can lead to anger and frustration, as well as problems dealing with power and authority. Anger is the product of to much self-power, everything feels like an up hill struggle which is full of conflicts. Frustration is the product of to little self-power everything feels to demanding and others place too many demands on us.
