This tool has been developed to allow a person the opportunity to reflect on their own well-being. By referring to the text you can determine if your chakras are out of alignment, and where you might need to put some extra "energy into" (being in mind that energy is on all levels- if a person is perhaps having issues with their career, then they could generate energy in the form of healing using whatever "healing modality they are drawn to such as reiki or colour therapy".) but additionally they will then need to exert physical activity in pursuing their dreams for the change to be made. Remember to check out the Chakra Balance and Affirmations page as well. **NOTE: Text for the assessment is not a "blanket description", but the text will give you an idea or something to work on within your own personal reflections and assessment. ***NOTE: All of the text on this site and this page are my own work - if you would like to use and share the information, as a courtesy please do acknowledge me as the author. (I believe that acknowledgement is a form of respect toward a person for their effort and time, which is also why I will put links and acknowledgements on my site). I am more than happy to share any strategies toward empowering people to a greater joy in their lives!
How it works
Some years ago when i was teaching meditation, at a time when I was personally not comfortable to give hands on healing, I developed this method for people in my group that were "stuck". I received very positive feedback from them. What I did, (and what i suggest you do), is first of all assess whether there is an imbalance. I would advise a including a general chakra balance and alignment as a daily practise, however, when you identify that perhaps your environment is affecting your chakra balance (such as perhaps at the end of a relationship breakdown, if you have repeat patterns of being a victim of circumstances, etc etc etc). You may want to give a little bit of extra energy toward an individual chakra. The way that you can do this is:
Enlarge the picture to the point where it is big enough to fit into the palm of your hand. Laminate it. (in fact why waste time - just do the whole lot of them and have them ready for when you need or want them, your personal (and cheap) chakra balancing palm cards. If you feel that one of your chakras is under stress, just create a little time and space for yourself, and sit quietly and focus your intent or gaze upon the palm card. Squint your eyes, if you feel like it.. just allow your vision to glaze and SOAK in the colours, and the heailng intent of the card. As you are gazing at the card, on your in breath, draw in the colour of the card, for instance if it is the base chakra card - visualise all that beautiful bright red, being inhaled through your nose, and down deep into your lungs, filling your entire aura with the colour red.. and then on the exhale, see the murky or duller red leaving your body.. breathe in the fresh and bright, and breathe out the old and unnecessary. Do this for about five minutes (or longer if you feel drawn), and do it as often as you feel the need. Much light and love and blessings to you!
How is your Base Chakra? If your Root Chakra is STRONG you are in the state where you love your career and get rewarded for being good at it. You are adept at earning income, and make wise investments and have the capacity to save and invest money. You always feel that you have enough money for holidays or to buy what you want without feeling guilty afterwards. You feel loved by your family and friends and you feel good about yourself physically and emotionally when you look in the mirror,
If your Root Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED if you tend to be “stuck” in unfulfilled jobs or an unrewarding career. You never seem to have enough money and you are often worried and in debt. You find spending money distressing as you doubt your capacity to budget effectively. You suffer from weight or body issues and have worthiness issues where you feel undeserving of help and support and uncomfortable in your own skin.

How is your Sacral Charkra? If your Sacral Chakra is STRONG, you see sex as a positive, glorious, pleasurable and healthy activity. You enjoy passionate and frequent long lasting sex with your partner and orgasms are mind-blowing. You will have harnessed the capacity to have simultaneous orgasms with your partner, and the sex is great even if you have been married for many years. You are always able to attract the right partners, and compatible people in your life who nourish and nurture you and assist you to become a better person than you already are. You attract opportunities of personal growth and great joy.
If your Sacral Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED, you struggle to see yourself as sexy, and tend to choose the wrong partners for you. You wonder how anyone could desire you. Your sex drive is low and when you do have sex its not particularly enjoyable. If you have a partner you rarely orgasm at the same time and premature or delayed ejaculation may be a frequent problem. You often wonder if you will ever find the ONE.
AFFIRMATION: MY EMOTIONS NO LONGER CONTROL ME, I CONTROL MY EMOTIONS. RATHER THAN REACT TO UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATIONS, I CHOOSE TO CREATE AN EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT.
Solar Plexus Chakra
How is your Solar Plexus Chakra? If your Personal Power Chakra is STRONG, then you “stand in your power”. You are comfortable and confident with yourself and others.

You appear to be charismatic, and determined to use that charisma and power for making the world a better place.

Your career and personal life are enriched as a result of your communication.

You feel that no one cares about your opinions, and that any of your thoughts or ideas are inconsequential and of no importance or value to others.

How is your Brow Chakra If your Intuitive Chakra is STRONG, you have the capacity to make accurate intuitive decisions about your career, your family and the intentions of other people. You often know things without knowing exactly how or why you know them, and you have a clear sense of direction and clarity of vision in everything you do.

You can often see past the superficial circumstances around you to the deeper or core issues.
If your Intuitive Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED, you have tendencies to feel lost and helpless when faced with big decisions and judgement calls. You are often taken by surprise because you “didn't see it coming” or “didn't see the writing on the wall”. You have a history of making unhealthy decisions and feel you make the “wrong calls”, and so therefore you don't trust your own judgement. You feel spiritually lost and your true purpose is unclear. You may often get headaches in the brow area (or sinus).
AFFIRMATION: I AM ABLE TO SEE CLEARLY INTO MY INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENTS AND AS SUCH AM ABLE TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR MYSELF, FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOMES. I HAVE CLARITY OF VISION.

As you proceed in your day to day living, you are always reminded that you are watched over and protected and you feel immensely grateful for the universal love and protection that you feel toward yourself and others. Others may refer to you as “shining”, or that you “SHINE'. You understand at a deeper level, that somethings you just DON”T understand and that is okay – at the divine time, in the divine place .. all will be revealed.
If your Crown Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED you tend to feel isolated and alone, and disconnected from the universe and even others. You may even feel angry or abandoned by the “ higher power”. You often suffer migraines and tension headaches. You don't understand why or how, and you want to KNOW why and how,but the information eludes you because your crown chakras is closed or blocked.
AFFIRMATION: I AM AT ONE WITH UNIVERSAL AND DIVINE ENERGY. I UNDERSTAND AND KNOW SOURCE IN MY HEART AND I TRUST IN THE PROCESS OF LIFE, AND THAT ALL WILL BE REVEALED AT THE DIVIEN TIME. “NOT MY TIMING- DIVINE TIMING”.

If colour is your thing - you might want to do some palm cards with the following pictures and laminate them. (Laminating tends to really bring the colours forward and brighter). AS with the chakra palm cards - simply focus your intent upon the colours and breathe them in and out. The colours are from L- R Base, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Brow (Third Eye), Crown.
