Learn to explore the world of chakras. In this video series I have shared some practices that have helped myself and my clients, you will find lots of different options for you to play with. Choose what works for you but do also challenge yourself, if there is a practice that you have ignored because it seems too hard why not try it for a few days to see what happens. Most importantly this is an exercise in love, don’t be hard on yourself if you forget your practice. Treat yourself with compassion and keep on practising, the more you practice the more likely that your practice will become habit and then your life will change.

Let’s start our journey with the Root Chakra because this is our ‘foundation’ chakra, it represents everything that is solid and practical in our lives. The Root Chakra is the chakra that grounds you to the earth, imagine that your legs are like 2 roots that are plugging into the earth’s energy source.
Next we move up to the Sacral Chakra, this is the chakra for pleasure and fun. This chakra needs movement to get to get it flowing. By opening this chakra to pleasure we become more expansive and gets the body releasing blockages. You don’t work this chakra you play with it.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is our seat of power, will and vitality. This chakra is about mastering our energy and becoming masters of our own life. Many people lose the power of this chakra when they are children when they hear the words “don’t do that”, “stop it”, “look at what you have done” or similar words. Hearing words like these can cause you the pull your energy inside because as a child you feel it is safer than standing up to the adult who is speaking to you. For others words like these cause you to become rebellious and defiant, this also is not a healthy way to express the Solar Plexus Chakra.
Clearing your Heart Chakra and helping it to function at it’s absolute best can be one of the most important things you can do to give back to your body.
It’s about letting love in and importantly, letting it back out again. We all need love. We all need to give love too. And let’s face it, with the way the world is at the moment, we need to wrap this crazy world in as much love as we possibly can. So how do you get your Heart Chakra pumping (pun intended)?
Have you ever felt as though your words have been caught in your throat? Or stood up to do a presentation or performance and….oh no…nothing comes out? Or how about when you’ve gobbled down a meal while you’ve been running to the train station? Or quickly eaten something at your desk? Have you felt a bit clogged up in the throat region? It’s all related to the health of our Throat Chakra.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Third Eye. There are many references to it throughout history. With it’s traditions steeped in the spiritual roots of Hinduism and Taoism too, the third eye is said to represent perception beyond ordinary sight.
It’s all about how open you are to truly ‘seeing’ what is in front of you. As a business owner and a busy parent, you want to have your third eye working for you. It’s linked in with intuition – you know those feelings you get about somebody or a situation or an idea, whether it’s negative or positive? That’s your third eye helping you along the way, giving you guidance.
The third eye also represents imagination. And it doesn’t matter if you are in an industry or role where ‘creativity’ isn’t traditionally part of the job. In the current climate, business is ALL about creativity!
We have finally made it all the way up the Chakra line to our seventh and final Chakra. The Crown Chakra. This is the ‘holy grail’ of the Chakras. It represents everything that is pure. It is about being so connected with our spirituality, our mind and our body. It’s where we want to get to.
