I hope you all have been enjoying your Autumn. I just returned home last week from a visit with Mambo Sam and Parran Matt for Fet Ghede and more :-) It was a really wonderful ten days, and even though it was a whole ten days, boy it went by fast! I have alot to report, and alot of photos to share, including a really awesome trip to a local New Mexico cemetary which included a big sign from my dearly departed Dad. Lots of new posts to come!
As I get back into the swing of things here, I would like to start off with some information about the Chakras, and how they influence our life and our well being - both physically and emotionally. I have a series of articles ready, which will walk us through each chakra, it's associations, and also the life issues which may be manifesting if we have a chakra that is a little "out of whack." This will be something that we can discuss over a few weeks, and I really do welcome questions and comments. Please feel free to post a comment here on typepad, or on facebook, or even email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Chakras are energy centers within the body that affect our physical, emotional, mental and physical well-being. Chakras come from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheels of light." Chakras are like a blueprint of energy for individuality. These energy centers hold a vibration and color, like a human rainbow.
There are many ways that can help balance your chakras (and we will get to this!) But first, do you know if you're out of balance?
When you work on the chakras that are closed or weak, you'll be directly influencing that particular area of your life, for example, finances, sex life, self-esteem, compassion, expression, intuition and spirituality.
Are your finances in trouble? Are you feeling insecure? Do you need to perform better at work and get that raise or promotion? Strengthen your Root or 1st Chakra.
Do you want to spice up your sex life or feel more passionate and creative? Unblock your Sacral or 2nd Chakra.
Want to feel more self-confident and powerful in achieving your goals? Strengthen your Solar Plexus or 3rd Chakra.
Want to feel more love, be able to forgive past grievances, and connect better with your spouse, kids, friends and co-workers? Work on your 4th or Heart Chakra.
Afraid of public speaking? Want to be able to express your truth and be understood? Balance your 5th or Throat Chakra.
Want more inspiration on which path you should take in life? Want to increase your intuition and psychic abilities? Open your 6th or Third Eye Chakra.
Want to feel at one with all there is? Have more peace, harmony and connection to spirit? Work on your 7th or Crown Chakra.
If you want to get balanced, get centered, get energized, get relaxed, get inspired, get clear, get connected, get going... chakra healing can be your answer. When your chakras are balanced, your life will also feel balanced.
When we learn to balance our chakras, we learn to craft our lives the way we want them to be, rather than living in constant reaction to forces outside of us.
These spirals of energy are wheels that heal, feeding the body good energy and relieving it of that we do not want. Chakras cannot be held, stroked or bottled up like a genie, yet our physical bodies soak them up thirstily and they profoundly affect our metabolism, emotions, sensations and behaviors. In addition to their roles in the physical realm, chakras work on a higher plane, waking us to the realization that our body, mind and spirit are forever and inextricably linked.
Ok, that is enough for one day! Please look for more new posts to come, and even some new products in the works as well!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
