Have you ever wondered what a chakra and aura healing session would be like? A School of Life Studies Student shares what it was like from beginning to end to do their very first professional chakra and aura treatment.
Around 30 minutes before my client arrived I prepared the room by lighting candles and a soft fragrance of incense. I prepared myself with a 10-minute mediation to ground myself and to ensure my own chakras are balanced and open, also ensuring my aura was clear of any negative energy. I had already cleansed and charged my chakra stones ready for the treatment in a non-metallic bowl of sea salt & water and placed in direct moonlight the night before.
I like to work with Reiki music with which I find helps my clients relax, this also creates a very tranquil holistic atmosphere. My client arrived a few minutes early, I greeted her with a warm welcome and asked if she could fill out the treatment form – I used the one that came with the course material
I then proceeded to explain to my client what Chakra and Aura healing was, I noticed my client’s aura was slightly muggy looking around her left hip area, which shocked myself as I have been practising trying to blur my eyes etc. and not had much luck before to see people’s auras, I didn’t get a colour, so I do feel I need more practise on seeing auras.
I explained about the health benefits of the therapy and explained about the 7 main chakras that we would focus on and which parts of the body they relate too. I then explained that I would be using a dowsing pendulum on each chakra to see if they are open and balanced, this will assist on which charkas need attention and in what order, I did this by using the method over my clients hand, My client had a look at the crystals and which are linked to each area, I asked if she minded the crystals being used, which she was happy too.
7, Crown Chakra = Amethyst
6. Third eye chakra = Sodalite
5, Throat chakra = Lapis
4, Heart chakra = Rose Quartz
3, Solar plexus chakra = Citrine
2. Sacral chakra = Carnelian
1, Root chakra = Blood stone
We spoke about how the cleansing process of the Aura and balancing of the chakras helps promote your own body’s health and wellbeing, it will clear any negative blockages to enable free flow of positive energy, to promote healing and energising you from within. I explained to my client that it is important for her to be open minded and have a positive approach to letting go of any behaviours/patterns that are unhealthy, as this will enhance the effects of healing. Promoting wholeness of mind, body and spirit. And that each chakra will be filled with harmony, health, love, light and peace.
Physical and Emotional Issues.
At this point I asked my client if she had any physical or emotional issue I should be aware of? To which my client explained that she had sciatic problem in her left leg. This confirmed to me what I have seen in the aura around the left hip. I explained that I would be using white sage to cleanse the aura to which my client was fine with, as it can sometimes be a little strong.
I showed my client to the treatment area, where I asked my client the lay down on treatment bed with a pillow I asked her to relax the best she could and close her eyes. I placed a blanket over her to keep her warm and comfortable. I then offered to play a guided meditation, My client like the music we had on, so we left it as it was.
Using my clear quartz pendulum and opening myself up asking for assistance and guidance from my spirit guides, I asked the pendulum if it would work with me to which the pendulum indicates I have permission. I ask if each chakra has any imbalance.
Starting at the root chakra holding my clear quarts pendulum between my fore finger and thumb above each chakra about 4-6inches, I am visualizing the colour red, the pendulum slowly started to swing clockwise, and started to speed up slightly I held the pendulum over root chakra for a minute and it changed to a dominant clock wise and the circle increased which tells me that the root chakra is open and balanced.
I then moved to the Sacral chakra asking for assistance and guidance from my spirit guides, my higher self also permission from the persons higher self whom I’m doing the therapy on. I ask if the sacral chakra and the pendulum can work with me. Holding my clear quarts pendulum between my fore finger and thumb above the sacral chakra about 4-6inches, I am visualising the colour orange, the pendulum starts to swing anticlockwise I hold for a minute to ensure I’m receiving the correct information, then the pendulum starts to increase speed moving in in a larger anti clockwise swaying swing, which tells me there is an imbalance in this chakra. Also, confirms what I picked up in my clients aura as this area relates to pelvis area and hip and lower vertebrae. After a minute the pendulum started to rotate in a clockwise swing, indicating it has balanced out and open.
Moving onto the solar plexus visualising the colour yellow the pendulum starting to sway from left to right, as leaving above the chakra for a minute it started to pick up speed and started to circle clockwise, which indicated the chakra was balanced and open.
I continued to the heart chakra again asking permission from my pendulum and visualising the colour green I found the pendulum was very slow in motion and was swinging left to right even after leaving the pendulum over this chakra for a minute , this indicated that there was an imbalance in the flow of energy, I visualised the colour green entering the heart chakra and after a few minutes the pendulum began to move in a clockwise circle increasing speed this indicate to me that the chakra is now balanced and open.
Moving to the throat chakra I found the pendulum picked up speed straightaway in a large circle motion, I visualised the colour blue. After a few moments, the pendulum was still swinging at the same speed which indicated to me that throat chakra was well balanced and open.
On the third eye the sixth chakra again asking permission from the pendulum, my guides, higher self and the Sophie’s higher self a working with the colour indigo. The pendulum started to work in a small anti clock wise circle the moving to a dramatic sway side to side, this indicated that there was an unbalance. Leaving the peplum for a few minutes it eventually swings in a clockwise large circle increasing speed which tells me that it is now open and balanced.
Lastly the crown chakra visualising the colour violet asking the pendulum permission, started circling slowing then increased speed but then slowed down and charged direction to anti clockwise, with a slight sway to the circling which indicated to me there is a possible imbalance in the central nervous/muscular system, I visualised the colour indigo entering the crown chakra and asked for my guides, higher self and Sophie’s higher self to help balance the crown chakra. After about 3 minutes the pendulum seemed to slow right down and started to pick up speed slowing in a clockwise circle which lets me know that this chakra is now balances and open.
I then proceeded to place the correct stone to the related chakra working from the root up to the crown chakra.
Root chakra = Blood stone for grounding
Sacral chakra = Carnelian to stimulate creativity
Solar plexus = Citrine to promote calm
Heart chakra= Rose Quartz for Self-love
Throat chakra = Lapis for effective communication
Third eye = Sodalite encourages high self esteem
Crown chakra = amethyst for balancing
I closed my eyes and visualised each colour penetrating through each chakra, as I’m a trained Reiki Healer I applied Reiki to my client where I felt needed, whilst the crystals where doing their work. M|y client commented she felt a sense of calmness and a warm energy around her. The total time the crystals where on the client was 20 minutes. Explaining to my client that I was going to be removing each crystal one at a time from crown chakra to the root chakra.
After this was complete it was time to start to clear my clients aura, moving my hands upwards over her body visualising any negative energy or impurities that needed removing, scooping and combing through her aura releasing any psychic debris and removing any negative attachments. Using a sage smudge stick I do one final cleanse of my client’s aura I started at the top of the crown and worked my way clockwise around her aura visualizing any unhealthy attachments evaporating as she lay relaxed. After completing this took a moment to my pendulum, spirit guides my higher self and my clients higher self for assisting in the therapy.
Bringing the treatment to a close.
I then asked my client to gently bring herself back to the room and to open her eyes when she is ready. I offered my client a glass of water and explained to get up slowly and just sit up for a few moments as she may feel lighted headed. I asked if she had felt anything whilst the treatment was taking place, which I took notes.
I explained that after the Chakra / Arura therapy everyone will have a different experience, it could take up to three days to full feel the benefits, and it can be gradual or a dramatic effect the healing and chakra balancing has on you. I also explained the importance of avoiding alcohol or any recreational drugs for 24 after the healing has taken place. And to drink plenty of water.
I recommended to my client that she can spray her own arura with diluted lime essential oil that can be kept in a small dark glass spray bottle and can easily be put in your hand bag. This is great pick me up and great aura cleaning on the go in needed.
My client said she feels lighter in herself and not bogged down and feels a lot more energized and has a positive feeling flowing through her, she is extremely pleased with her first Chakra & Arura therapy as am I.
I have found that by writing down my case studies I can see where I can learn from each one and improve the experience my clients have. As each person, will be different and the therapy will be personal to them, this will be a great learning for myself and help with my own spiritual growth.
I found the course work from The School of Life Studies so very easy to follow, and the very insightful information I can refer back to in the future.

Crystals to help Children
Children of all ages love Crystals and seem to have a natural ability to choose the right crystal for them and know just how to use it. Often using their own senses to explore a new crystal or stone Children respond very quickly to the healing properties of crystals. Crystals are a gift from earth and children find themselves drawn to their energies, beauty colour and form. The world of crystals is a truly magical colourful place for children.
Tumble stones are fabulous for children with their smooth edges, beautiful colours and different textures children love to curiously prospect around comparing, and examining the beautiful polished stones Many geologists will tell you that their fascination with rocks were first triggered by tumble stones.
There are a number of stones which are extremely beneficial for children here a just a few.
Amethyst: This is one of the most popular stones for children; Amethyst can encourage a child to focus when needed so is perfect for when children are taking exams or just struggling to concentrate. It is a calming cleansing stone which will also help if your child is having bad dreams.
Clear Quartz: Another popular stone for children. Clear quartz is the confidence crystal and can burn off any negative emotions. All children should be given a piece of clear quartz to carry with them through life. It will gradually increase in power and can act as their very own good luck piece offering protection with its all-purpose healing properties. It is a perfect stone to have in the bedroom.
Tigers Eye: Tigers eye is a stone of protection and can be a great help to children that are being bullied. It is also a grounding stone and can pull dreamers back down to earth and can help put thoughts into action.
Green Aventurine: Can help overcome shyness, this stone can also help children take more care with their school work and help improve handwriting. It is good for anxiety and panic attacks. Green Aventurine can help induce psychic dreams so be careful about putting this in a child’s bedroom unless you feel they are ready for this.
Rose quartz: This is a beautiful stone and can help children to learn self-love. With its strong heart energies and soothing vibrations it can help with hurt feelings. It is a wonderful protection stone for children and can be particular helpful for earache and stomach pains.
Moonstone: Moonstone Another favourite for children it can be particularly helpful for children who suffer from night terrors. And can help calm hyperactive children encouraging a restful night’s sleep. Moonstone is ideal for a new baby’s room as it can help establish a regular sleep pattern.
This is just a short list of some of the best healing crystals and stones to help your children. Remember they can carry them in a pocket, or sleep with them. Crystals often get lost and misplaced by children, I personally have had experience of my crystals just disappearing this is OK Just explain to them that when this happens it is because the stone has done its work sometimes they disappear and do not come back sometimes they reappear it might be an idea to have a few to hand for when they are ready for a new one. Be confident that they will choose the right stone for them.
Rose Quartz – Stone of Love
Rose Quartz is known as the love stone, it can open up the heart chakra to all forms of love: self love, family love, platonic love and romantic love. It can be used to balance emotions and bring the user peace and calm,
The rose quartz produces a constant energy, what some of us don’t realise, is that with this stone things can indeed get worse before they get better, especially with affairs of the heart. The energy works to remove old blockages and encourages the qualities of forgiveness, patience and understanding, so if you have been carting around a bit of old baggage expect to have to do some inner work when you use this stone. Let’s say the rose quartz doesn't necessarily let sleeping dogs lie.
Don’t be put off by this; rose quartz can be a tremendous help in matters of the heart and by working with its energy can be as much benefit as working with your own personal therapist but of course like therapy it can take time before you experience or feel a breakthrough. If you do choose to carry or wear a rose quartz, then you must be patient, The rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love and certainly the most important stone to use for the heart chakra. It will teach the true essence of love and purifies the heart on all levels bringing you inner healing and self-love. This stone is very popular in crystal therapy.
How to Attract Love
If you want to attract love then look no further, place a rose quartz by your bed, this can be very effective in drawing love and relationships your way, if you are in a relationship this stone can restore trust and harmony and help to encourage unconditional love.
It is said washing the face in water charged by rose quartz will help fade wrinkles and keep the skin young. Perhaps you could put a little piece of rose quartz in your daily moisturizer jar to help reduce the ageing process.
Rose quartz is the most abundant mineral found on earth and makes up around 12% of the earth’s crust, it is found in many places around the world but most rose quartz is mined in Brazil. It is named for its translucent rosy colour, it is at least a component of almost every rock type. It has a hexagonal crystal structure and is made of trigonal crystallized silica. It is most varied in terms of varieties, colours and forms. If you would like to know more about the properties of crystals or crystal healing see our crystal therapy course.
