How to Achieve General Awakening of Your Chakras?

Before you start using your chakras to attain specific goals linked to their individual functions, it is important that you first proceed with a complete awakening of all your Chakras.

Doing that will fulfill their potential, so you can then activate each of the Chakras whenever you want, depending on what you aspire to achieve.


If you are still wondering about the full potential of the Chakras, discover the healing qualities of the 7 Chakra Crystals Stones. Boost your levels of energy and vitality with this endless source of youth.

These stones will help you find the balance you are looking for and will create a deeper awareness with your own chakras.

Some practical advice

It is recommended to stimulate your 7 Chakras at least once a week, replacing the last sentence of the awakening Ritual by saying:

My Sahasrara chakra is now active! with My Sahasrara Chakra is always active! 

Do that every week for each of your Chakras.

If you maintain this positive action over the long term, you will see your health improve and your dynamism increase. You will accomplish your desires much more quickly and live your dream life.

If, however, you have a particular wish you want to see come true, know that each Chakra has its special area of influence. Consult the table below to see which one you should concentrate on.
