The Chakra Box:
This week’s helpful technology for personal healing and development is the Iphone and IPad App called Chakra Box.
ABOUT THE CHAKRA BOX:
From the ITunes App Store: “Chakra tuning helps you balance your chakras by allowing them to open up. Once your chakras open up, energy is able to pass through them. You can then release energy that has been bottled up inside of you. This energy will now be able to flow freely through your 7 chakras and allow you to be more open to love, compassion, success, better health, prosperity, and spirituality.”
Chakra Box is a very simple to use App for iPhone and IPad (although some reviews of the IPad app have issues with the size of the app on the IPad screen)
WHAT DOES IT DO?
The Chakra Box plays a series of tones that tune your chakras. Upon loading the app, you will see an interactive silhouette of a meditating person with the seven primary chakras as buttons. The easiest way to use the app is to simply press on a chakra and hear a Tibetan bowl sound meant to balance and clear negative energy. The sounds for each chakra are harmonized according to what sound each chakra requires for balancing and opening your chakras. We found the sound quality to be quite excellent.
If you wish for a nice hands off approach, you can set the bowls to up to eighteen repetitions. The timer allows for up to twelve hours of continuous playing time so you can meditate hands free or even sleep while enjoying the benefits of the app.
At 2.99 it’s not a bargain, but it’s not unreasonable or unaffordable. If you’re a traveling Reiki practitioner or yogi looking for a portable and simple way to use chakra sounds without carrying a set of bowls with you, the ability to program the sounds to play works very nicely during both classes and private sessions.
Overall we wish the price was slightly lower because it may be overlooked by those more comfortable with a .99 or $1.99 price point. Chakra Box really is a wonderfully simple and helpful app both for those who want to dip their toes into meditation, or sound healing- or for practitioners looking for another tool for their tool belt.
