A Life in Balance


The word ‘Chakra’ comes from Sanskrit, it means ‘wheel’ or ‘disc’. These moderators of subtle energies are traditionally depicted as lotus flowers, each one resonating at a different frequency, that corresponds to one of the colours of a rainbow.

Seven Major Chakras

Traditionally the Hindu system names seven major Chakras, even though the human energy system is said to have many Chakras, and new ones are being discovered all the time.

The Chakrasare represented by lotus flowers, each one has the stem of each lotus flower metaphysically ’embedded’ into the spinal column, (or sushumna), from the coccyx to the crown of the head.

The Right Balance

The Chakra system offers a valuable explanation of the holistic nature of humankind. It outlines how,  in order to maintain a healthy, balanced life, we must attend not just to certain physical dysfunctions that may occur but to our emotional, intellectual, and spiritual needs as well.

Each of the seven Chakras deals with different parts of this bigger picture and directs us to those areas where we might be functioning out of balance.

Human Energy Fields

Our ancestors were open-minded to things they could not see, let alone explain, they had no need for technology, or scientists to explain the human aura.

As we journey together through the Chakras we need to remain open-minded. The fact that we cannot physically detect our Chakras or aura can be explained thus; they operate as energy fields vibrating at a rate normally undetectable by the human eye and brain. 

As we take this journey together, and appreciate the very real benefits that come from balancing our human energy system, we will learn to discard the need for material evidence of their existence, since personal experience and enhanced well-being will provide this for us.

The Holistic view

The earliest mention of the term ‘chakra’ is said to come from the vedas, the four holy books of the Hindus believed to date back before 2,500BC, in which the God Vishnu is described as descending to Earth carrying in his four arms, a Chakra, a lotus flower, a club and a conch shell. However, since the time of pre-Vedic societies, in which mystics and yogis passed their knowledge through the spoken, rather than written word, the notion of seven ‘maps of consciousness’ for optimum well-being goes back much further.

In common with so many ancient practices, the Chakra system takes a complete view of human experience. It integrates the natural tendency for equilibrium into the many levels that make up the self – the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Chakra healing is based on the belief that in order for total well-being to take place we must act as an integrated whole.

Universal Life Force into the Body

When there is a dysfunction or blockage in one part of the system it has an impact on all other parts. Such malfunctioning can occur when the energy flowing through the Chakras is either excessive or deficient.

We will learn how recognise such blockages, or dysfunctions, relate to any problems you can be experiencing and how, you can transform all aspects of your life for the better.

THIS Is How To Enhance Your Chakras…

Our bodies have 7 major energy centers where the flow of chi passes through.
These energy pools are called chakras and sometimes the chakras get clogged with psychoemotional debris.

There are various of ways to clean these energy vortices.
Applying healing stones on specific chakras is shown to be really effective.
Each stone has a specific frequency that interacts with the light, hence their color. The 7 chakras are in harmony with the 7 colors of the rainbow. The frequency in each energy center resonates with one of the stone’s colors.

When this frequency is applied on the specific energy center the crystal healing stone purifies that specific frequency by vibrating with its pure resonance.

How To Use The Chakra Healing Stones?


  1. To check what chakra is out of your balance you can do an online test, you can contact a professional to check you up, or you can simply follow your intuition which is shown to be really effective. If a certain color stone is more vibrant to you than the others, this may be your body’s way of telling you what to use. If a certain stone makes you feel a pleasant sensation in your hand when you pick it up, this is a sure sign what to use.
  2. Once you know what chakras you are trying to clean, place the corresponding healing stones on the specific locations of the chakras on a naked body. Leave the stones for 15 to 30 minutes on your body. Relax.
  3. After you finish the session make sure to clean the stones and place them in a clean and dry space.

NOTE: It’s always best to apply all the stones because that way you make sure all your chakras are tuned. This way you are creating a harmonious balance among the chakras.

Using crystal energy.

Having them near

Even if you have crystals nearby you will notice subtle changes in energy levels. Some of them are useful for counteracting the electromagnetic fields of appliances such as computers and microwaves.

Affirmations

Select an appropriate crystal (or crystal oracle card) to support you in formulating and focusing in a positive affirmation. Hold it, consider its attributes and how it can help you. Feel the energy of the crystal create the positive vision you wish to achieve.

Meditations and visions

Hold the appropriate crystal in your hands or create a pyramid or circle around your body with a combination of stones. Working consciously with crystals will raise the vibrational levels of your work. Visualise the energy flowing from the crystal to your aura. It will guide your consciousness to where it needs to be.

Chakra healing

Crystals are commonly placed on the seven major energy centres, known as chakras, on the body. Each energy centre works in a different ways. Crystals help to bring balance and harmony within each Chakra and within the whole system. The state of being allows the body to heal itself and enables the mind to link the spirit and feel bliss.

Sharmanic and magical work

Crystals can be used to create a protective circle, to enhance the power of a quest, incantation, ritual, ceremony and all other work. They can be incorporated on magical tools such as staffs or wands to increase the power and help direct sunlight.

Navel Chakra awareness

To develop an awareness of your naval Chakra

There are two exercises that you can engage with to increase your awareness of your naval Chakra.

Exercise one ….

Firstly, sit crossed legged on the floor. Hold onto your ankles, this will provide you with a little support. As you breathe in, tilt your spine forward and lift your chest, then flex the top of your pelvis back. Breathe out and move your spine backwards and the pelvis forwards. Repeat this exercise a few times, then stop and relax.

Exercise two ….

Lie on your back, prop yourself prop yourself up on your elbows . Lift your legs about 12 inches if you can! Breathe out and open your legs.  Breathe in and cross your legs at the knees, but keep your legs straight! Repeat this several times. Now your legs a little higher and repeat the same process. Then start lowering your legs in the same fashion.

This exercise is also great for your stomach muscles!!

Now return to your chair/sitting position. Relax and focus on your breathing.

Now, close your eyes and concentrate on the area just above your navel. This Chakra opens back and front, so you need to concentrate on both sides. This may increase the sensation you feel taking place in these two areas. Envisage the colour orange. Imagine the wheel whirring, or the fluttering butterfly or other analogy you feel when you work on your Chakras.

Reflection

What does the energy in this area feel like? 

Is it stronger back or front?

Are you giving out a lot of energy in this area, or are you keeping it contained within yourself?

As previously, mentioned that as we are learning how to open and close our Chakras; at this time I would like you to gently close this Chakra.

Now practice, practice these exercises and when your ready move on to the next Chakra, the solar plexus.

Base Chakra awareness exercise

  •  An exercise that teaches you to acknowledge your base Chakra, how to open and close it.

Begin this exercise by sitting on your heels on the floor – just like the image above.

Put your hands palm down on your thighs – again just like the image.

Take a deep breath in, as you do so roll your spine into your pelvis area. When you breath out, roll your spine back out again.

Continue this for about a minute if this is comfortable for you. If you find that this is uncomfortable then please stop.

Now, I would like you to sit somewhere comfortable, close your eyes, and concentrate on your base Chakra, remember that this Chakra opens downwards towards the ground. This Chakra is always open, you can never completely close it.

Try and tune into this part of your body, just below your spine/tailbone. Sometimes, if you visualise the colour red this helps you to connect. Take a few deep breaths, it is important to remember our breathing, as when we concentrate on other parts of our body we tend to forget this comfortable breathing technique.

You might feel something happening with your base Chakra, everyone’s experience of this is very different. Sometimes it may feel a little bit like a butterfly, fluttering gently against your skin. It may warm more like a warm/cool draught. It may even describe this sensation as a whirring feeling. If you visualise things easily you may visualise this a flower gently opening its petals for the first time, people relate this to the lotus flower. Other images could be of a wheel spinning, or a door opening. Some people may experience none of these things, they just acknowledge the fact that they know their base Chakra has opened.

At this early stage of working with your Chakras, we only want to acknowledge them as there is much more to learn! This will be at a late date. At the moment we need to learn how to close the Chakra, please remember that this Chakra never closes down fully.

Imagine the petals of the flower closing, or feel the whirring sensation slowing down, or the butterfly floating away from you. Use any image or sensation that works for you.

My dream interpretation

img_0089

 

In my dream last night my great aunt came to me and gave me a gold ring with an orange gem and placed it upon my middle finger, left hand. I think I must have said that I couldn’t accept it as I no longer wear gold rings, but she insisted and showed me a big red ❤️. The ring remained placed as I had now accepted it, and suddenly I felt the warmth, love and affection from my great aunt. I felt relaxed and calm. Her presence made me feel truly loved, I felt the protection of a cloak that had been wrapped around my shoulders. They told me that I needed to believe in myself, and they were always there by my side. As I write this I feel quite emotional as I’ve remembered this dream so vividly and with so much detail. But I think my healing journey is now well on its way 💕👼

I researched online the interruption of this dream and found out the following:

Orange – is associated with tranquility, balance and healing.

Gold – the golden colour reflects your sacred awards. It can also show riches are coming, refinement and enhancement in your life.

Ring – to dream of a gold ring is a symbol that greatness and wealth are coming your way.

Well this is all looking very positive for me! All the meditation and healing exercises I have been practicing seem to be working. I’m so happy 😀

So why not join me in my spiritual journey and indulge in the benefits too.

Lots of love and light to you all xox

How to connect on Archangel Jophiel

Who is Archangel Jophiel

Firstly, this Archangel is a female, she is one of the seven principal archangels. She represents creativity and beauty. Her name means ‘beauty of God’.

Jophiel can assist you when you’re looking for clarity on a subject,or if you want to achieve a greater understanding of yourself. So if your looking for spiritual guidance in these areas, then this meditation is for you!

To begin with this exercise you need to prepare your altar, and dedicate this to Jophiel. The colour associated with Jophiel is yellow, therefore the altar should reflect this. You could decorate your alter with yellow citrine crystals, and maybe anoint the altar with a lemon essential oil. Also an angel ornament should be placed here also. To start the meditation you should light the candle, so please make sure that your yellow candle is in a safe place. This will allow you to focus on the energy that radiates from Jophiel, her joyful and positive energies.
Firstly you need to wash your hands to get rid of any negative energies. Then you will need to release any energy blockages as this might prevent you from connecting to Jophiel. You do this by holding a quartz crystal to your body in the area that you feel radiates with confidence, this helps to enhance your positive energies. You are ready to focus on Jophiel energy. You may feel a sense of lightness as if all your pent up energy in your body has been released. 

Some people at this stage like to put a scarf or similar covering on their shoulders to represent what would be worn in a church, however, this is not compulsory. 

Next close your eyes, and put your hands in a prayer position. Some people if they leading a session or have an assistant, they would beat a drum, or have a little music playing low in the background. As you focus on the sounds around you, you may feel like you have slipped into a trance, this is normal. You may visualise colours like yellows, pinks, or white this is normal too.

Experiences such as tingling or the sense of overwhelming sensation around your crown chakra is normal too. Some people can see pink flashes of light after this meditation, this is a sign that Jophiel is with you, as Jophiel’s halo is a deep fuchsia colour.

There are other exercises you can do but this one is a very simple exercise that you can do at home.

If you would like to reflect on this experience then you can write down your hopes and desires on some paper, and leave them in a glass bowl at the altar and as Jophiel is with you you can work together to achieve your goals……. You just need to believe…..
