In my first article for The Valley Ledger, I briefly described Reiki and how this universal energy works to break up "baggage" that we tend to carry around in our chakras. (As you may recall, chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit, and these spinning wheels are what give and take energy all day long). Knowing a bit more about chakras may empower you to release any negativity you may be holding, or at least become aware of your strengths and weaknesses:
Crown (top of head): This is our connection to Spirit, or God if you prefer (or not! No judgment). Blockages include feeling disconnected, like our body, mind and spirit are on different playing fields.
Brow or Third Eye: This is our intuition, and yes, everyone has it! It's whether we use it or not that is key. Tapping into our intuition helps us make solid decisions in our best interest...which leads to peace!
Throat: All communication. Blockages include the inability to speak up for ourselves or being easily hurt by others' words.
Heart: Love! and unfortunately, the absence of love- fear. We want love to be the driving force in our heart chakra, but our ego often makes fear a priority. Wouldn't it feel wonderful to live fearlessly?
Solar Plexus (gut): Source of our self-confidence and trust in ourselves. When we get "punched in the gut" it is a blow to our self-worth. This one takes a big hit in women, especially, and can lead to that "stomach in knots" feeling.
Sacral (abdomen): Family, career and creativity. There's a lot going on in this chakra and it's important to express your creativity! We often forget about that part of ourselves because we don't make the time.
Base or root (pelvic area): This is our birth/survival. Flight or fight. This is where we need to ground....and abundance lives here, too. You can see the implications of imbalance here!
As you read this list, notice your strengths and weaknesses, and know that my Intuitive Reiki work can educate you on balancing and realigning your chakras. I can also provide tips and tools to use at home, including essential oils.
Isn't it time to become your very best YOU?
