The Seven Chakras – Body, Mind, Soul Connection

This section may serve as a week of readings or simply as a reference. The intention is to present the basics of the chakras—the connection between our physical bodies and our emotional and spiritual selves.

My hope is that you come away with an understanding of the importance of remaining open to allow for a steady flow in each area of the body for overall optimum health and wellness. I am going to refer only to the seven main chakras in the body. To keep it simple, the basic chakra colours are the same as the seven colours of the rainbow.

It is common to feel strange emotions after an opening or a release in a chakra. It may be a sense of overwhelming peace, joy, or even sadness or anger. It means you may have experienced a release in your physical body and is an indicator of where to look for further balance or healing. So, please give yourself grace as you journey towards true healing. Also note that chakras flow up and down from one to the other. Therefore, if you do have a release in a chakra that has been blocked, the chakras connected to it are going to feel the flood like a dam that has burst, and they too will then call for you to steady the flow.

Sample Day: Humble Warrior

On the path towards our dreams sometimes we must reconnect. The word stray is a significant word on this journey to our dreams.

When one has wandered too far in a wrong direction there is a loss of connection with one’s self, others and the Universe – with God. Isolation leaves us vulnerable to become preyed upon and fall victim. And it can occur in any aspect of wellness.

Acceptance vs Boundaries

SUNDAY: SPIRITUAL: Surrender to the “Whys” with a “Thank You”

As you write this week I hope you will keep in mind that as we strive to live with acceptance, boundaries must also be taken into consideration. Connect with that place where you end, and where another begins. Sometimes it is hard to see the lines because of the blending, which is good, which is not good, which is neither – it just is.

A New Place and Thyme

There are many ways to reach or attain a goal, choosing the path that will bring you the most joy in the process is what true living is all about. If the end result is going to be the same, it is in how you get there that will really count. So decide what seeds you are going to plant by visualizing your endgame, be sure what you are planting can withstand your potential elements and know that when they do fully bloom you may be in a new place and time (or in my case thyme) – and live.

Lead the Exchange

The world is constantly giving and receiving. Oxygen, as we know, is an essential component of life for cellular respiration, without which we could not survive. Plants supply us with oxygen while we supply plants with carbon dioxide. The perfect exchange.  Picture what happens when one is not providing its share. Now let that lead you to redirect your wind, your day – your position at work – as you strive to lead for a perfect exchange through respect.
