This Week’s Helpful App for Spiritual and Personal Development: Chakra Box

By on Dec 18, 2011 in Tools and Tech | 0 comments

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. PRICE: 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. If you are new to meditation, chakras, or sound healing and looking for an easy way to start your learning process, the app includes a basic write-up about each of the chakras and their meanings. Overall we wish the price was slightly lower...

Namaste and well met again beautiful readers. Thank you for tuning in during this busy month. A gentle reminder that if you are feeling stress or anxiety at this time, remember to breathe and to take time to recharge your batteries. We’re offering a free meditation for our followers.   Like our fan page, and watch a free meditation exclusively for our fans.  You can also sign up for our Beautiful Beings news list, and when we release new meditation videos you’ll be able to experience them before any one else on the internet. We’re starting a new instalment on the Open Source Healing blog. Each week we will introduce you to and review a helpful technology to assist in personal development and your own life journey. These are not sponsored by any company, but as part of our own work, keeping in mind our goal of integrated healing practices, we often test and evaluate different meditation programs, apps, and look for codes and options for our website, and we would like to share those with you here. This week, we’d like to talk briefly about a code discovered when researching the Lunar Eclipse.  This nifty widget code allows you to put a realtime image of the moon and earth on your website. Live Earth and Moon Phase Code http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/earth-moon/ Here is the widget code from Albino Blacksheep: <!– Begin Earth-Moon Phase embed –> <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/earth-moon/embed.js”></script><noscript><a href=”http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/earth-moon/”>Earth and Moon Phase embed</a></noscript> <!– End Earth-Moon Phase embed –> It’s simple to put on your website if you’re familiar with widgets or adding code to your website, and you can see the widget in the sidebar of the pages and posts on the opensourcehealing blog (for example). This is a lovely and elegant way to see the current moon cycle. We like it. What do you think? If you try it out and want to share your experience we’d love to hear about it. Share a link to the page where you use the widget code and we’ll add your website here. Namaste, The Open Source Healing Team Share Is Caring 🙂Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click...
