The Four Levels of Healing Mind, Body and Spirit

There are four levels of healing: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. One can experience one or all during a healing, which can take place during the following activities:

  • Reiki session (private and distance)
  • Affirmations
  • Chanting
  • Singing
  • Dancing
  • Praying
  • Meditating
  • Journaling
  • Dreaming
  • Drinking herbal infusions
  • Sound healing
  • Gemstone healing
  • Spending time outdoors
  • Therapy
  • Reading spiritual materials
  • Spending time with positive people

You can combine many of these activities, like chanting affirmations while outdoors; meditating with gemstones; praying over an herbal infusion; or working with a therapist who gives reiki as part of the appointment. Below is how healing looks on each level.

Physical
This type of healing is related to the physical body. The health of bones, blood, muscles, tendons, joints, skin, hair, nails, etc., can improve. Physical healing is also related to the root chakra. Issues with safety, prosperity and abundance can shift, too.

Emotional
Related to the sacral chakra, emotional healing takes place in the form of healthier boundaries between you and food, people and ideas. You feel worthy of living a better life. Your intuition and creativity expands as you heal on this level.

Mental
Thoughts, confidence, courage and joy are healed on the mental level. The solar plexus governs this energy. You become more action-oriented when healed.

Spiritual
Spiritual awakenings happen at the heart level. The connection to your soul gets stronger, as does your openness to self-love. You learn about your life purpose and step in the energy to manifest it. Compassion is the action taken to help others in need; it is how you share your love with others.

Together, all four levels of healing mind, body and spirit leads you to change your life. You are mindful of what you consume, whom you invite into your social circle, and how you move forward with your life.

Although you may not notice it right away, healing does take place in all the chakras, specifically the ones mentioned. With patience and persistence, you will be living your joy.

Inner Child Chakra Healing

Children have an abundance of energy imagination. Their lives are centered on fun. That stagnates when well-meaning adults ask children to grow up. As adults, we tend to forget fun and burn out.

Chakras are wheels of energy located along the spine that turn, giving and receiving energy that is around you. Chakras can close or become congested with low vibrational energy causing imbalances and health issues.

Heal your chakras associated and inner child with fun activities then balance that with adult-style journaling. Below are inner child healing for the seven main chakras and two little known ones to keep you balanced and happy, head to toe.

Holistic Health

Soul Star Chakra Inner Child Healing

The soul star chakra is located six to twelve inches above the head. This is your Higher Self, the part of your soul connected to the spirit world.

The soul star chakra radiates unconditional love and needs no healing, but healing the other chakras allows you to access your Higher Self with little to no effort. In this process, you learn your life’s purpose. Distractions, unhealthy relationships and stress are eliminated.

Activities

Reflection
Automatic writing is one way of connecting with your Higher Self. You can ask questions about past lives, chakra blockages, and steps to take to heal your life. If you try automatic writing, journal about how you felt about the process and answers.

Crown chakra
Holistic Health

Crown Chakra Inner Child Healing

The crown chakra is located at the crown of the head. This is the energy center of knowing, intellect, thinking, learning, and teaching. The crown charka is the connection to cosmic consciousness, or the Divine.

People who had authoritarian parents and/or experienced religious abuse have blocked crown chakras. Their hearts, sacral and solar plexus chakras may be blocked as well if they find themselves shutting down rather than expressing their thoughts and emotions about what they truly believe. Further, a blocked root chakra may be a factor because this is the space of safety and family.

Escapism and is a sign of a blocked crown chakra. Over-thinking is another sign of a crown chakra imbalance. Activities like binge watching television shows, spending long hours on social media, or other distractions go along with this.

Activities

  • Learn something new, like a language or skill.
  • Teach what you are passionate about.
  • Find a community that is reflective of your interests.
  • Meditate.
  • Break a rule (that does not harm yourself or others).

Reflection
Journal about how you felt doing the activities. How long did it take you to unplug from the distraction and act? At any point did you stop and wonder if you were doing the activity correctly? Whose voice was criticizing you? How did you correct this behavior, if at all?

Think about the moment you felt that your parent was wrong about something and they did not listen to your input. Do you two still disagree? Do you find yourself acting out in any way as an adult? How does this feel in your body?

Third Eye or Ajna
Holistic Health

Third Eye Chakra Inner Child Healing

The third eye, or ajna, is located between the eyebrows. The third eye controls dreams, visions, insight, and the physical manifestation of emotions and thoughts.

You manifest your heart’s desires faster when you visualize, affirm and connect an emotion to it. This activity connects your sacral, throat and third eye chakras. Try it to see how fast you get what you want.

Activities

  • Daydream about your heart’s desires.
  • Draw, paint, or look at art.
  • Spend time in nature.

Reflection
The third eye is how you consume beauty. It is also how you create it. Journal about thoughts and emotions you had when you daydreamed. What did you find yourself correcting to manifest the daydream?

Record your dreams. Draw the symbols (animals, plants, colors, locations) and emotions you may have felt in the dream. If you lucid dream, notice your thoughts and emotions. Change the situation to something more pleasant, or use the lucid dream to manifest something.
