    I like to balance my chakras alot and I usually have a chakra candle in each appropriate color and stone to match.  I recenlty went for a crystal cleansing and it was so effective.  I felt great afterwards their was something real about it.  I believe in this kind of medicine and meditation.

      I find that yoga is the best way to balance chakras. I collect crystals but sometimes, especially if you use them to much, they actually gather your distortions and if you're lazy to clean them, they will start amplifying them.

      My rule is the stones you are attracted to are the ones you need. You don't want to amplify colors that you already have to much of.

        Hi friend prettydarkhorse

        Who invented yoga and chakra? Is it based on Science?

        Thanks

          The Vedas introduced the concept, but the Vedic Aryans are related to the Jews as well and may have come from the same ethnic culture.

          chakras are wheels..but actually they are "circulations" of energy.yoga is said to correct the chakra imbalances. I have a hub that correlates it to neuroscience. it has been getting outside attention and i even have a couple of views from stumble.

      You don't balance chakras with candles and stones. You balance them with your mind.

        you can't balance them with your mind either, you need to move.

            ooh, that's a lot of discussion because cells move and according to some people cells don't have a mind.

            but i know what you mean.

            the gurus claim that mind alone will not help the mind. you can only change the mind by changing action...hence yoga.

              NightEmpressposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              Yes. What I mean is that you have to believe in chakras, if you want to balance them. In order to believe, you have to use your mind. You are your mind. To move, balance, chant or pray, you have to use it. You even use it to breath.

                i agree, the body is an extension of the mind. it is how the mind senses reality and moves about. we are all mind and the rest of our parts are like tentacles attached to it.

                must disagree here.
                you are not your mind. If the tool is the person than what use is the tool to itself? You cannot balance light nor the equal motion of it. To do so, you must become light yourself, yes?

                    absolutely.
                    the mind is a tool.
                    can you balance thoughts?
                    to do so, you must know how many and where they are to be placed,
                    as to equalize them.


                    if you can pinpoint and measure the true vibrato of light frequencies -in all three instances- you would not need to balance those sequences...

                    evening PB, hope all is well.

    Before rushing off to the nearest New Age bric-a-brac store, how about doing some solid research?

    If you need to "balance your chakras a lot" then you're doing something wrong.  (Without knowing you personally, I can't say what that it is that you're doing or not doing.  I can say, from some thirty years experience, that it shouldn't be necessary.)

    Beware "therapies" which are really only placebos.  They make you feel better because you believe they will.  You could do the same for yourself readily enough, at home, with little or no financial expence.

    As for crystals, they can be pretty.  But they're not needed - despite what commercially-driven trends insist.  There is a lot of money to be made peddling this stuff.

    Ask yourself which you want to be, a collector of goodies or a seeker of knowledge.

          I sometimes wonder what side the elephant your feeling up, sometimes you're absolutely religious and then you're asking for scientific proof.

          there is no scientific or historical proof the Mohammad had visions of revelations or that the Black Stone from Kabbah is from G-d. Yet it is a compelling myth, one that rallies people together and organizes them.

          don't deride one myth and then eat up another like its reality.

          there are more evidences that in the modern world that the beliefs of the Vedic Aryans (the iranians, semites like yourself and the jews) have solid medical basis.

    chakras are better viewed metaphors for aspects of consciousness. sometimes, a crystal represents this aspect of consciousness. so whatever helps to externalize a hopelessly internal thing to grasp it and conjure it is good. you remind yourself of your intentions.

    crystals really store energy polarities. a japanese scientists exposed crystals to rock music and classical music and the sounds influenced the formation of these crystals. rock music generally distorted them.  i wish i could find the study. ofcourse countless of studies were done on crystals and none have so far produced conclusive results.

        It is part of the Vedic Myth. Myth being an expression of consciousness. they are metaphors for something that that culture had a subjective understanding of but without actual knowledge of in the style of western science.

        Yoga is a direct result of Vedic Myth.

              Thank you for your posts.

              Can I ask if you know about the 'intelligent heart' project? According to Dr. J. Andrew Amour the heart and brain each have a magnet field. The heart's magnetic field is 50 times more powerful that of the brain. The two magnetic fields interact and transfer information...

              Armour argues that he measured the heart's magnetic at a distance of 5 metres from a human body

              Unfortunately, my research on this subject leads to commercial websites and I cannot find Armour's research...

              To me, there are two sources of knowledge; first the Word of Revelation from the Creator-God Allah YHWH and the second the laws of science which can be tested and retested in a lab.

              This is our source to reality; the first one is preferable as it is complete; and the other one is still in the process of completion.

                I have already told you.
                Chakras do exist medically. Though they are not called that in medicine. The Ganglia are a mass of nerves that meet and intertwine
                at certain points in the body. Medically these ganglia nerves are called Plexuses or Plexus (for one). In these masses of intertwining nerve cells there is a lot of activity. It is where the sympathetic and para-sympathetic nerves meet and mingle

                There are several from the head to the pelvis. They form a circular web.

                So there is a lot of validity here.

                Someone here once said I was wrong because I believe in Chakras.

                    The word 'Chakra' is older than the medical term. Historically, Western scientific medicine refused to use the word and the concept Chakra because until recently science could not 'prove' the existence of Chakra.
