“We are woven together with different frequencies that give us our collective energy field.” – Deanna Minich


Chakra Balancing and Healing

“Chakras are the organizing centres for the reception, assimilation and transmission of life energies.”

Chakra Balancing and Healing – What are Chakras?

Chakra Balancing and Healing – I like to think of the chakras not as simply physical places in the body (although that is one aspect of them) but as 7 types of essential energy. The word ‘chakra’, which means ‘wheel’ in sanskrit comes from the Indian tradition. In fact most systems of traditional healing recognise a number of ‘energy centres’ and in some traditions also ‘energy lines’ or meridians. As well as 7 main chakras, there are dozens of minor chakras throughout your being.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed into another form. The most simple principle with chakras – and indeed with energy healing – is that of that of physics – everything is energy and no matter what you call it – chi, prana, ki or nwyfre – I believe it is all the same thing. Different types of energy vibrate at different frequencies, and this is true for your chakras.

What does it mean if a chakra is blocked or unbalanced?

As Belinda Davidson, medical intuitive, says, if you have anything wrong with you at all it is due to one or more of your Chakras being out of balance in some way!

Each of the 7 main Chakras is associated with particular aspects of your physical, mental and emotional being. Each Chakra has its own particular energetic vibration that also equates to sounds, colors and elements.

When a chakra becomes imbalanced the flow of energy into it is depleted or even prevented, and the chakra may also slowly ‘leak’ energy, like a punctured tyre.

What Are the 7 Chakras and How Can You Unblock Them?

We all have the innate ability to heal ourselves and being in a state of energetic – or Chakra – balance allows this healing to occur. Each chakra particularly loves receiving energy that sits on the same vibration or frequency as it. The first chakra has a great affinity with physical and earth energy; the second chakra with moon energy, water and movement; the third chakra with sun and fire energy, as well as food; the fourth chakra with air and breath, and the energy of love; the fifth chakra with sound, the sixth chakra with thinking, learning & knowledge; and the seventh chakra with collective, universal energy.

Chakra Balancing and Healing

1st Chakra (Root or Base Chakra) – Foundation Energy

The physical location of your first chakra is right at the bottom of your spine, in the area of your coccyx and perineum. This chakra is all about feeling grounded, supported, stable, safe and knowing where you’ve come from. I like to call this first essential energy the Foundation Energy, because it provides the absolute foundation for your wellbeing, as well as for the next 6 chakras. When the first chakra is imbalanced – which is sadly all too common – it is difficult for the other chakras to be balanced.

When it’s blocked: A variety of ailments can occur, including feeling disconnected, insecure or ungrounded. Some of the common physical complaints associated with an imbalanced 1st chakra are: fatigue, lack of energy and vitality, lower back problems, immune disorders, digestive complaints including constipation, and skin problems.

Watch this video to find out how to tell if your first chakra is out of balance and what you can do about it. Of course one of the great ways to get the first chakra (or any other chakra) back into balance is with reiki! If you are ready to facilitate your own healing journey I can support you.

2nd Chakra (Sacral Chakra) – Creation Energy

The physical location of the second chakra is just below your belly button. I call this chakra your Creation Energy as it is associated with the expression of your creativity, including our innate ability to create new life. Yes, this chakra governs sexual energy, but more importantly, it is also our emotional energy centre.

When it’s blocked: If you are feeling uninspired creatively or have some emotional instability, your sacral chakra may be misaligned. Likewise, this can also be associated with physical complaints including: sexual disfunction, reproductive system disorders, hip problems, cancer, weight gain in the lower belly.

Read about the Sacral Chakra here for more information.

3rd Chakra (Solar Plexus) – Power Energy

The physical location of the 3rd chakra is in the centre of the top half of the abdomen. It’s responsible for confidence and self-esteem, as well as helping you feel energetic and in control of your life.

When it’s blocked: You may suffer from low self-esteem, or anxiety, you may also lack motivation. Common complaints associated with third chakra imbalances include: stomach pains, allergies, diabetes, anxiety, inflammation, addictions.

4th Chakra (Heart Chakra) – Love Energy

The physical location of the fourth chakra is in the centre of your chest. I call this one your Love Energy and it comes as no surprise that the heart chakra is all about your ability to both give and receive love and compassion, and to feel open and grateful.

When it’s blocked: you may experience things such as unhappiness, resentment, an inability to like yourself or to experience the joys of life. When your heart chakra is underactive, the following are common complaints: respiratory infections, asthma and chest pains.

5th Chakra (Throat Chakra) – Truth Energy 

The fifth chakra gives voice to the heart chakra and controls your ability to communicate your personal power.  I call it your Truth Energy. When it’s functioning in a balanced way, it allows us to express ourselves authentically and clearly.

When it’s blocked: Someone with a blocked throat chakra will have trouble making decisions, and may talk too much or too little. Common complaints resulting from a 5th chakra imbalance include: thyroid problems, neck or shoulder pain, sinus problems.

Check out this video on how to Tell the truth for the sake of your Wellbeing.

6th Chakra (Third Eye Chakra) – Insight Energy

The sixth chakra – as we move up the body, we’re getting closer to communion with the divine.  I call the 6th Chakra your Insight Energy because when balanced it opens us up to deep insight and to see the big picture and connect to intuition. Think of it as the eye of the soul: it registers information beyond the surface level. Visions and intuitive hits are not uncommon for someone with a balanced third-eye chakra.

When it’s blocked: You may have trouble accessing your intuition, trusting your inner voice, recalling important facts, or learning new skills. Other common complaints from those with a 3rd Eye imbalance are headaches and migraines, insomnia, and nightmares.

7th Chakra (Crown Chakra) – Connection Energy

The 7th chakra – As well as connection to higher powers, this energy enables connection with all other beings, and so I call it the Connection Energy. The highest chakra, sits at the crown of the head and is associated with our ability to be fully connected spiritually. When you fully open your crown chakra—something very few people ever do!—you’re able to access a higher consciousness.

When it’s blocked: An imbalanced 7th chakra may result in a feeling of loneliness, disconnection or lack of support. You may feel like you don’t understand your higher purpose. Common complaints associated with imbalance in this chakra include: disturbed sleep/ wake cycles, headaches and cognitive disorders.

Balancing the 7 Chakras is a group effort

While each chakra has its own distinct properties, they are all connected, and they all work together systemically. That means if one is out of balance, it affects all the rest. So if you have signs of multiple blocked chakras, just know that it’s totally normal—I can will work with you to bring them all back into balance, creating a clear pathway for your energy to flow from head to toe.

“Arwen helps me to stay mindful and uplifted in spirit and more energised in body.”

Elise N

We went to see Arwen to help my 14 year old daughter work through some anxiety concerns.  My daughter wasn’t sure about going in the beginning but due to Arwen’s professional, gentle warmth and supportive approach, she guided my daughter through how she could help her deal with her worries and provided encouraging insight, wisdom and healing.  We are very grateful for Arwen’s guidance and support.


“I felt extremely relaxed and at peace during the process.  My expectations were exceeded and I would recommend Evenstar to anyone.”
