Understanding Aromatherapy for Chakras
Everything in this wonder-filled cosmos is made of vibrational energy. From atoms that form the device you’re reading this on; to the millions of molecules in your physical body; the world around you; and all the stars in the universe – it is all energy. Subtle aromatherapy uses the vibrational, energetic quality of essential oils to influence our psyche and spiritual wellbeing, which allows us to self-heal. The vibrations of the body can go out of tune when we experience physical or emotional stress, and so energetic healing can be used to restore the body to a healthy, harmonic resonance.
Each of the seven chakras resonates on a different vibrational frequency, and this corresponds to the seven colours of the light spectrum. When they are balanced and aligned, everything sings in divine, harmonic resonance and we feel inspired, wise, full of gratitude and love, vibrant, and completely content in the universe.
However, when the chakras are out of alignment the body is in a state of discordant dis-ease, and depending on whether the chakra is overactive or underactive, it can bring about an emotional state of anxiousness, lethargy, despair, anger, stress, irritability, panic, despondence, and can even affect our physiological state too. Spiritually we feel discontent, lost, helpless, bitter and are generally unhappy within ourselves and our place in the world.
Aromatherapy can help rebalance the chakras and restore our prana - our ki, our life force- to its most radiant and resonant form by pacifying overactive chakras, or inspiriting underactive chakras. If you visualize a rainbow, it’s at its most beautiful when it’s balanced and proportionate – too much or too little of one colour would be uncomfortable with an unsettling power dynamic. Each chakra has an equally important role to play, and so neglecting one in favour of another can lead to an imbalance. However, life is naturally full of ups and downs, which is why we can use subtle (vibrational) aromatherapy to counterbalance the chaos of the world around us.
Chakra healing focuses on restoring balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit. With introspection and self-awareness, we can begin to translate our life’s challenges symbolically and find meaning in them. We become conscious of where we are exerting our physical and emotional power, and where we feel as though we are lacking in it.
