This of course, is a partial list of the foods, spices and drinks that are beneficial to the chakra centers, however, to gain a proper chakra balance, you must learn to focus on your own chakra centers.
You can begin balancing your chakras, by starting with the root chakra and working your way up to each ascending chakra, by placing gemstones on each chakra point. When working with each chakra point, you can bring balance to individual chakras by leaving a gemstone on the point for 3 to 5 minutes each, depending on the level of balance you feel each chakra needs.
Since everyone is different you may find that some individuals recommend a specific gemstone for individual chakra centers, however, you can use any type of gemstone that feels right for you personally. By experimenting with various gemstones you can find the right one for your personal chakra work. You will know if you are using the right gemstone for you, after you place the gemstone on your chakra, when you experience a good feeling or notice a low humming. However, if you do experience any negative feelings or if the gemstone does not feel right, actually some gemstones will remove themselves if they are not right, by falling away from the chakra point. Any time you find they are not the right gemstone, you should not use them for chakra balancing.
After experimenting with various gemstones, you will find the perfect gemstone that feels good to you. Once you find the best gemstone for your use, you should make a list of the gemstone you use as well as the chakra you use it on. For instance, some individuals may use a lapis lazuli for the throat chakra, however if it is not comfortable for you, it is not the best gemstone to use on your chakras. You should never feel as though you have done something wrong when a recommended gemstone does not feel right for you.
A chakra balance can also be done all at once, put your gemstones on each chakra point at the same time, and then leave them on for three to 25 minutes, again depending on how much your chakra’s need to be balanced.
