Does chanting really help with activating Chakras?
Similar to tuning forks and crystal singing bowls, our vocal cords vibrate (quickly moving back and forth or up and down) as we chant or hum. This vibration or frequency that courses through our physical body creates a balancing energy at a cellular level. When that vibration is in tune with a particular chakra, anything that does not resonate will fall away. Practicing Vibrational Medicine through chanting creates a resonance which strengthens and clears energy to flow more freely.
When our energy is flowing properly, our immune system is strengthened. Vocal chanting is like taking a shot of vitamin C. This makes sense if you consider that everything is energy. Everything in the universe vibrates on some level including each chakra in your body. For the purpose of this article, we will concentrate on the crown chakra which vibrates higher than that of the other chakras at 480 Hz. This is important to know because the chants below also vibrate at that frequency. So let’s start chanting to activate and balance the crown chakra.
What is a Mantra?
Before we begin our chanting and energy work, it is important to understand what a mantra is. Simply stated it is one sound, phrase or tone that is repeated either silently or aloud. Traditionally, mantras are repeated 108 times; the use of mala beads can help you to keep track.
Much like meditation or hypnosis, chanting gives the logical mind a rest. Chanting allows the subconscious more freedom to problem solve. The primal sound of the mantra brings balance to the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Chanting mantra is a powerful form of personal energy medicine. Chanting is perhaps the original form of sound healing and when used religiously, the results are astounding.
Is my Crown Chakra imbalanced?
A deficient crown chakra often shows up in our lives as lifeless, sluggish energy or difficulty sleeping. If on the other hand you are flighty, agitated, reactive and aggressive, there may be too much energy flow, or excessive energy related to the crown. Either way, both are signs of an imbalance in the crown chakra. Chanting is a great way to bring balance into the crown and enjoy more peace of mind.
