Imagine yourself at your best. You’re energized and motivated, creative ideas are flowing freely, and you feel completely in alignment with your purpose.
Now imagine yourself at your worst. You’re exhausted and bogged down, struggling to even get out of bed in the morning.
Your patience is paper-thin, and you feel like you’re just going through the motions day after day.
If this sounds familiar, it might be because your chakras, and more specifically, your hand chakras are out of balance.
Chakras are the energy centers in our body that govern different areas of our lives. When they’re balanced, we feel creative, inspired, and in alignment with our highest selves.
Before we get into the steps of how to activate them, let’s first take a look at what chakras are and why they’re important.
What are the major chakras?
Chakras are the energy centers in our body. There are seven main or major chakras, each governing a different area of our lives.
The seven main chakras are:
- Root chakra: governing our feeling of safety and security
- Sacral chakra: governing our creativity and sexual energy
- Solar plexus chakra: governing our self-confidence and sense of personal power
- Heart chakra: governing our ability to love and be loved
- Throat chakra: governing our ability to communicate
- Third eye chakra: governing our intuition and connection to the spiritual world
- Crown chakra: governing our connection to our higher selves and the universe
How to activate your hand chakras / palm chakras
Now that we know what the main chakras we can take a look at the seven minor or lesser known chakras – the ones present in your hands!
You might not know it, but your hands are home to a variety of minor chakras. Yes – there are hidden and calming energies in your hand!
These lesser-known energy centers can offer insights into your spiritual and emotional state. The first of these is the base-of-the-palm chakra, which is located at the base of the palm. This chakra is associated with strength, determination, and grounding.
The second is the heart-of-the-hand chakra, which is located in the center of the palm. This chakra is associated with love, compassion, and forgiveness.
The third is the third eye-of-the-hand chakra, which is located in the center of the palm just below the fingers.
This chakra is associated with intuition, insight, and wisdom.
The fourth is the crown-of-the-hand chakra, which is located at the tips of the fingers.
This chakra is associated with spirituality, connection to the Divine, and enlightenment.
By taking some time to assess the health of your hand chakras, you can gain valuable insights into your overall well-being.
Let’s now take a look into some of the methods that you can try today, to clear, balance and improve your hand/palm chakras.
Rub your palms and feel the energy flow
One of the simplest ways to activate your hand or palm chakras is to rub your palms together and feel energy between them.
Start by rubbing your palms together briskly for 10-15 seconds. Then, cup your hands around each other and feel the energy between them.
You should start to feel a tingling sensation in your hands. This is the energy of your chakras beginning to balance and align.
Add in some sea salt
Another common method is to rub your palms with sea salt. Start by wetting your hands with some water.
Then, add a small amount of sea salt to your palms and rub them together. The salt will help to draw out any negative energy that may be blocking your chakras.
Once you’ve finished rubbing your palms together, rinse them off with some fresh water.
One of the most popular methods for hand chakra ACTIVATION is using crystals.
There are many different crystals that can be used for this purpose, but some of the most common are amethyst, citrine, and carnelian.
To use crystals simply hold the crystal in the palm chakra of your dominant hand and focus your intention on opening and balancing the chakra.
You can also place the crystal on the corresponding chakra point on your other hand.
For example, if you’re trying to activate your root chakra, you would place the crystal on the base of your thumb.
Listen to hand healing energy frequency music
This can be done in a few different ways, but one of the most common is by singing/chanting or listening to healing frequency sounds
This type of music is specifically designed to help balance and heal your chakras. It’s also very relaxing and can be a great way to de-stress.
There are many different types of hand healing energy frequency music available, so take some time to find one that you like. Once you’ve found one, simply put on the headphones and relax.
As you’re listening to the music, focus your intention on opening, balancing, and clearing your hand chakra. You should start to feel more balanced and centered after a few minutes.

Using essential oils to activate your hand chakras
Essential oils can also be used to activate your hand chakras.
There are many different essential oils that can be used for this purpose, but some of the most common are lavender, eucalyptus, and lemon.
To use essential oils to activate your hand chakras, simply add a few drops of the oil to your hands and rub them together.
Then, cup your hands over your nose and mouth and breathe in the scent.
As you’re breathing in the scent, focus your intention on opening, balancing and clearing the chakra.
Grounding and connect with nature
Grounding your hand chakras is important because it allows you to release any excess energy that may have built up in them.
There are a few different ways to ground your hand chakras, but one of the most common is by using earth, water, or air.
Ground your hand chakras using earth
Simply place your hands on the ground or in the soil. As you’re doing this, focus your intention on releasing any excess energy into the earth.
You could easily incorporate this into some gardening.
Ground your hand chakras using water
Place your hands in a bowl of water or run them under a faucet. As you’re doing this, focus your intention on releasing any excess energy into the water.
Ground your hand chakras using air
Hold your hands up to the sky and focus your intention on releasing any excess energy into the air. This will feel much better on a windy day.
Once you’ve released the excess energy, you should feel more balanced and centred.
Grounding your hands in nature is one of the best ways to activate and ground your hand chakras.
This is because nature provides us with a natural source of energy that can help to balance and heal our chakras.
So, next time you’re feeling out of balance, take a nature walk and ground your hands in the earth, water, or air.
You’ll be surprised at how much better you feel!
In addition to using crystals, sound, and essential oils to activate your hand chakras, you can also use affirmations.
Affirmations are positive statements that you say to yourself in order to change your mindset and beliefs.
Some examples of affirmations that you could use to activate your hand chakras are:
“I am open to receiving all the abundance that the universe has to offer.”
“I am worthy of love and happiness.”
“I am safe and protected.”
To use affirmations, simply choose an affirmation that resonates with you and say it out loud or repeat them quietly in your head.
As you’re saying the affirmation, focus your intention on opening and balancing the hand or palm chakra.
Repeat the affirmation as often as you need to until you feel the chakra opening and balancing.
