What are Chakras and How Do They Affect Our Stress Response?
Chakras are considered the centers of energy in the body where major nerve points meet and where our life force energy flows harmoniously and in balance.
There are seven main chakras in the body that are aligned from the top of your head to your tailbone, and each is represented by a specific color. Each chakra has its own measurable electromagnetic wave affecting our bio-energy & biology systems.
Prana, also called ch'i, shakti, aura, or biofield, is a scientifically proven quantifiable energy field that flows in and around our bodies. Should this energy be blocked, symptoms may soon arise.

Six Methods for Healing Chakras
There are many ways to re-calibrate your energy centers. Tuning your chakra centers results in greater inner harmony allowing you the chance to release the physical, mental, and spiritual effects of stress while living a more authentic life.
1. The Power of Color Therapy
Color is a property of light. Light is a form of energy. Each color also has its own vibrational frequency. There are six primary colors in the color spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and pink, each having its own unique frequency ranging from 435 Terahertz (red) to 740 Terahertz (pink). Each of these corresponds to one of our seven main chakra systems within the human body, helping us regulate many system processes from organ function to the immune system, emotions and vibrational state.
Chromotherapy is a method of treatment that uses the visible spectrum (colors) of electromagnetic radiation to cure diseases. It is a centuries-old concept used successfully over the years to cure various diseases. Many aspects of human psychological functioning are affected by colors. Wavelengths in the visible region produce biological effects in molecules, living cells, tissues and enzymes.
It is one of the oldest therapeutic systems and has been used by the ancient civilizations of India, Egypt and China for the treatment of a number of diseases that include psoriasis, rickets and skin cancer." - Science Direct Study on Chromotherapy "The Mechanic Basis of Chromotherapy".
Taking a colorful bath, holding a colorful stone as a meditation aid to visualize this color washing over your body, finding yourself in a colorful room and allowing its energy to wash over you or fill your body with its wisdom. Filling your space with bouquets of flowers in your color of choice and being mindful to the presence of its subtle energy. Taking up painting, coloring, or playing with colorful puzzles. These are just a few ideas for how to engage with this healing phenomena.
2. The Power of Frequency & Sound Therapy
528Hz, which is known as the ‘MI” or ‘Miracle’ tone in the Solfeggio scale, is a sound wave that has been reported to cause significant and extraordinary changes in biological functions.
It has been reported that sound resonance can activate DNA repair by refreshing ‘structured water’ within the genome which studies show can kill cancer cells, repair damaged cells caused by addictions or disease, and allow the body to begin healing.
In this way, Tibetan and Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls use the power of sympathetic resonances to strengthen, amplify, and balance the energetic chakra system in the body for cascading healing & regenerative effects on mind, body, and soul. This of course can have an impact on cellular repair and revitalization of skin, too.
Listening to the following frequencies can have an effect in tuning your chakra centers.
- 396 hz Root
- 417 hz Sacral
- 528 hz Solar
- 639 hz Heart
- 741 hz Throat
- 852 hz Third Eye
- 963 hz Crown
Sound baths or gong meditations are quickly gaining popularity for their transformative meditative effects. Up until recently, they have been a well-kept secret for thousands of years across many cultures and continents. Find a neighborhood meetup near you, or throw on your headphones and find a youtube channel dedicating to playing these frequencies and you'll notice the effects within a few minutes.
Classical music is another way to engage with these frequencies. Baroque music such as Pachelbel's 'Canon' or Beethoven's 5th are known for using the power of the perfect 5th harmonic scale which is a complex harmonic dance of the interplay of these frequencies.
3. The Power of Flowers
Flowers are directly connected to source and each carry their own vibration. Roses are the highest vibrational flower, promoting harmony, love, connection, and heart expansion. Surrounding yourself with flowers, gardening, or keeping bouquets nearby are a great way to sychronize your energy centers and open yourself up to universal flow.
Flowers, while beautiful, colorful, fragrant, and uplifting - they also are carriers for life giving properties. Bees pollinate flowers and are critically responsible for 80% of all plant-based food sources and plant-based industrial products. Bees and pollination give us life. The USDA Forest Service says,
"Without pollinators, the human race and all of earth's terrestrial ecosystems would not survive."
Our bodies have an innate sense of this natural 'magic' and responds with a sense of calm and relaxation whenever flowers are nearby.
4. The Power of Crystals
Everything around us from our bodies to inanimate objects are made of energy and fluctuates in varying frequencies. Nikola Tesla was known to use quartz crystals in his work.
The innate energy found in these gemstones have the power to heal your body and soul from the inside out. The use of gemstones date back centuries where various cultures such as the ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Incas used gemstones in healing and protection rituals. It was believed that gemstones warded off evil spirits and promoted good health and prosperity to its users.
The use of gemstones also produce spiritual benefits, each stone vibrating at its own frequency, radiating energy and corresponding to each of the seven main chakras: the crown, the third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and root.
By incorporating the healing properties of gemstones in your skincare or any daily routine, you raise your emotional and spiritual vibration while pushing out toxins and negative energy. Read More Here.
5. The Power of Words
Words carry an electrical charge which can impact our energy systems. World-renowned Japanese Professor Masaru Emoto performed ground-breaking, experiments on the effect that words have on energy in water published in Messages in Water. Dr. Emoto discovered that when frozen, water that’s free from all impurities will form beautiful ice crystals that look exactly like snowflakes under a microscope. Water that’s polluted, or has additives like fluoride, will freeze without forming any crystals.
Dr. Emoto poured pure clean water into vials labeled with negative phrases like “I hate you” or “fear.” After 24 hours, the water was frozen, and no longer crystallized under the microscope. The pure water yielded grey, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful snowflake-like crystals all due to the power of the negative words.
In contrast, Emoto placed labels that said things like “I Love You,” or “Peace” on vials of polluted water, and after 24 hours, they produced gleaming, perfectly hexagonal crystals, known as sacred geometric shapes, despite them starting out as polluted water. Emoto’s experiments proved that energy generated by positive or negative words can actually change the physical structure of water.
