Healing and Balancing the 7 Chakras with Beej Mantras
Bija Mantras for the 7 Chakras
This is the continuation of my article Significance and Location of the 7 Chakras and Diseases associated with them. In order to enjoy good health it is essential to have healthy Chakras. But this does not happen always as Chakras can become imbalanced because of numerous factors like stress, physical and emotional traumas, stagnant energy, and unexpressed emotions etc. There are several methods or ways for balancing and healing a chakra imbalance. One of the methods to treat a Chakra imbalance is by chanting the Beeja Mantra (also referred to as Bij or Bija or Seed Mantras) related to the Chakra. The bija mantras used for chakra healing are seven Sanskrit words that correspond to the 7 major Chakras in the human body. These Beeja Mantras have immense healing powers and seem to have originated from the Hindu culture.
Given below are the Beeja Mantras for the 7 Chakras in the Human body.
