Wheels in motion – chakras

You may not be able to physically see or touch your chakras but you will definitely know about them if they are working overtime or being lazy.

Chakra is the Sanskrit word forĀ  “wheels of energy/ light” that help to connect our physical body with our energy body. This is how we are able as human beings to feel, think, sense, and connect to a higher level of being/ consciousness.

We have hundreds of energy systems running throughout our bodies and the chakras are one of the main dominant ones. They are connected through our nervous system branching from our spine, where we have the sushumna nadi (main channel where prana/energy travels through the centre of the spinal cord) that runs from our coccyx (root chakra) through to the top our head (crown chakra).

We have 7 main chakras that connects us from the ground up.
1. Muladhara – Root chakra – Red
2. Swadhisthana – Sacral chakra – Orange
3. Manipura – Solar plexus – Yellow
4. Anahata – Heart chakra – Green/ Pink
5. Vishuddha – Throat chakra – Blue
6. Ajna – Third eye – Indigo
7. Sahasara – Crown chakra – Violet

As everything is energy, chakras themselves have their own vibration. It is here where they have their own colour through the range of the infrared light spectrum. The lower the chakra in the body the lower its vibration.

Not only do chakras have their own vibrations but they also have their own emotions, sound, relating organs and systems, as well as human behaviour and attributes.

You may not be able to physically see or touch your chakras but you will definitely know about them if they are working overtime or being lazy.

When these wheels are unbalanced they can create physical problems in your life. Whether it be from having ankle problems due to instability, to breathing issues from a broken heart and having trust issues, chakra balancing is key to helping you live a healthy, happy, connected life.

Your body naturally knows how to heal itself and it is the reason why you sometimes feel more inclined to eat specific foods or wear a certain colour on different days. Your body is trying to heal and balance itself and intuitively you are doing it without realising…isn’t that amazing?!

The more you learn about the chakra system the more you begin to understand the interwoven relationship of how everything about us is affected by everything within and without. And when you rise through the chakras you become less of an individual with selfish needs and desires, to becoming a more conscious collective being.

I won’t give too much away in this post, but if you would like to know more on the chakras then join me in one of my #WheelsInMotion workshops.

Stop forcing nature

What you do need is a balance of Intention + Action + Patience

Let’s be honest, no matter how quick you drink that detox tea, or how many green veggies you cram in a day, if it takes your red blood cells alone 4 months to regenerate then it’s going to take some time for your health and body to change.

Just like everything in life there is a timing for things, and patience really does need to be a virtue in that “in-between” phase.

Now don’t take the first 2 paragraphs literally and sit back on your little buns and do nothing and expect change to happen. No, that is wishful thinking and taking manifesting to a Dreamworks animation film level. (ie. dream state/ non-existent/ crystal ball level)

What you do need is a balance of Intention + Action + Patience.

Intention… is the energy and purpose behind your goal, and this needs to be on the positive side (believe in your system/ plan/ goal/ dream/ yourself)

Action…is what you need to carry out on a consistent basis for your goals to be realized. Without action you are just wishing and praying on faith

Patience… this doesn’t really need to be explained but it’s something that you will need to carry out when you’re internet connection is slow, and when things (sh*t) just happen along the way!

NATURE FLOWS!!!

We get so caught up in carrying out the first 2 elements in life that we forget about the 3rd…PATIENCE!

When things are forced it goes against nature’s way. Life naturally flows, yet our desire to have things almost instantly is creating a loss of depth, value, and trust within us and our process.

Sometimes you just need to let go, so whatever you are working on at the moment, take 5 on it!

Take a few deep breaths, look at it’s value in your life (is it something that is benefiting you or holding you back?) and either take action on it or don’t.

YES inaction is sometimes a key element to your goals working out. We can become so focused that we miss the bigger picture in our lives. Sometimes we just need to go back to nature, look at how it deals with all it’s forces, seasons, and elements and learn from it.

Be patient with yourself in the process. Stop forcing change to happen. Let go of things that aren’t serving you, and truly listen to your inner guidance.
