Bija ~ Healing Words of the Chakras
Everything holds vibrations, especially that of words. We know the power of affirmations and how we can speak things into existence. The Law of Attraction is real! Certain words hold negative vibrations while others hold positive vibrations. Chanting certain mantras are even said to activate and balance chakras!
Chakras are, “energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to to the immune system and emotions. Seven chakras are positioned throughout your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color, and governs specific functions that help make you, well, human”.
The vibrational frequencies associated with the chakras are referred to as, Bija.
Bija means seed. “ The Bija mantras are one-syllable seed sounds that, when said aloud, activate the energy of the chakras in order to purify and balance the mind and body”.

The use of chanting Bijas can be beneficial. It’s important that your chakras are spinning the right way and aren’t blocked. Sometimes, when chakras are blocked, dis-ease can occur physically in the body. For example, a blocked Throat chakra may cause a sore throat.
Chanting Bijas is a good way to activate and balance the chakras, therefore helping to avoid dis-ease and physical symptoms in the body. It can also be very meditative. Chanting the word OM out loud or to the self is powerful. It resonates with the chakras and causes ease in the mind. Positive vibrations flow through your body and ground you.
I utilize the power of Bija in times of distress or when I feel a chakra is blocked. Om is my favorite because it empowers me and connects me to my Third Eye the most. Sound healing comes in many forms and Bijas are just one of the ways to activate and heal the chakras. Some people enjoy singing bowls in keys that are associated to the chakras! It’s fun exploring different chakra sound healing methods! But for instant relief, Bijas are only a word away!
Much love & light,
