How Chakras connect the mind, body and spirit

How Chakras connect the mind, body and spirit

I love and adore working with the 7 main chakras.  I've had such amazing personal insights and have watched incredible “light bulb” moments and massive transformation in others.  In this post, I share some chakra basics as well as a video that delves deeper into the rights of passage aspects of each chakra.

Check out this, oldie but goodie video post.

Your past does not have to be your future

The amazing thing about life is that we always have the opportunity to see a new day.  

What happened yesterday has no bearing on what will happen in the present.

The only thing we bring with us as we travel forward through time our story about who we are or who we were told we were supposed to be.

We often hang on to other’s definition of who we are stemming from childhood or teenage years.

This characterization, while so out dated is familiar and we may wear it like a badge. We cling to what we know even if it does not serve us.

The challenge is to rewrite our story.

What happened in the past is the past. So, who are you now? What new foundation can you lay so that you move forward with security and safety?

Paint where you have come from in a positive light.

Challenges have only made you stronger and more appreciate of what others take for granted.

Highlight good times and moments you have felt all your needs being met. Feel where you want to go and know that you have support. Breathe in a fresh new perspective and move into your future feeling blessed with strength and resilience.

 

The bridge between body & soul

The heart chakra is associated with life attributes love, forgiveness, resentment, compassion, healing and self love. It sits in the center of the chest.

This is such a powerful chakra because it is the bridge between the upper spiritual chakras and lower physical ones.

When blocked, this chakra commonly manifests in chest tightness, asthma, heart palpitations and mid back pain (by the way, please get checked by a physician if you have any of these symptoms).

If we look at the symbolism of this chakra as a bridge between the 1st-3rd chakras and 5th-7th chakras, we see how love is at the center of all we do. Negative emotions can not exist in the presence of LOVE.

Love is the gateway to harmony between the visible and the invisible– the ego and higher self.

To surrender to this is to be free. The body is lighter when the burden of resentment is released and forgiveness takes place. It’s as though a weight has been lifted.

What bridge do you need to mend? It may even be with you.

Many times we need to understand that we were/are not at fault for certain traumatic occurrences that we have taken responsibility for.

Give yourself permission to remove that hat you may have felt obligated to wear.

The heart chakra is always seeking expansion. Through divine Agape (unconditional love) we are able to evolve in consciousness. It’s important to listen to the purity of our heart’s song to get closer to becoming our best selves.

When your body speaks, listen. True healing requires that we sometimes move through the uncomfortable to find resolution. You are worth it!

Peace Be Still

What if we lived each moment of each day truly content knowing that all is well?

The job that was lost, the deal that didn’t close, the hardship that doesn’t seem to end, all designed for us to get us closer to relying and trusting divine order. Hardships tests our endurance and development muscles where we must grow and get stronger to over come obstacles. 

It’s never about the “what” of a situation but instead the “who” we become on the journey.

Trusting that we are where we are meant to be per our soul agreement with the divine is the spiritual act of surrender so essential for well being. We have the opportunity to grow deeper in our connection with Spirit, to expand our listening and hear more clearly our guidance. It takes practice and commitment to this act in effort to experience an enlightened life.

Stress would be no more, for we would rest in the fact that all things have been perfectly placed in our lives to give birth to greater character.

If we could live intimately entangled with spirit, we would understand in each moment that we are okay.

What a concept! Then... we would really live and breathe, upon wake and at the close of each day, that all is well.
