Whether you are starting a new business or are a first time parent it is always helpful to get information from those who have had these experiences. About 10 years ago I became very interested in chakras and the energy system of the body. I read many books and practiced techniques that were used to stimulate and open my chakras. One of the books I found to be most helpful was a book called Ancient Teachings for Beginners, by Delong. This book is filled with practices that have been handed down over the ages from Egypt. During earlier times these techniques were known, accepted, and practiced by many people. Now because we are part of a changing world where people are waking up to the fact that we are far more than we thought we were. We are wanting to have access to that wealth of wisdom and knowledge that is at our disposal if we are willing to do the work to get it. Each one of the chakras stores and holds the knowledge and wisdom of every life we have ever lived. Some are open and spin free of trauma and damage, where others are closed, shut down, and clogged with residue that only we ourselves can aid in removing. Our bodies are made up of over 90% water, if you have not heard of the book by Emotto, that shows us how water is affected by our emotions, by all means check it out. The reason I bring this to point is that our chakras are responsible for the circulation of fluids in our bodies. Stagnant energy centers mean stagnant water in the body in those areas and that makes them susceptible to disease. Getting our chakras open and spinning is one of the healthiest things we can do for ourselves. This will not be an easy process because there can be many uncomfortable emotions that come to the surface as we do this. We have to look at the body as a container. It can hold just so much and in order for us to grow we have to make some room for the new. Releasing old hurtful memories can be one of the best ways to do this. Knowing the body is a container can shed new light onto the many things we do that can contribute to losing nutrients and other things that the body needs. If we fill our bodies with stress, it takes it’s toll and we lose nutrients that directly affect our cells. If we drink too much alcohol, it pushes out vitamins and minerals that our bodies could be using in it’s place. The best way of understanding our bodies is knowing that we can hold just so much. This is why it is important to fill the body with good food, good thoughts, and limit our stress, so that we are filling our container with what we need and not the opposite. The more we follow this plan the healthier our bodies will remain. I hope you follow the upcoming series I will put out on the blog and I will go through the energy centers one by one in more detail.
