Apr 24-30: Lesson 57: Introduction to the Chakra System
I have found that an understanding of the energy system of the body or chakras, is one of the more powerful ways to receive Guidance! Here are two examples:
- When I first moved to New Hampshire, I was holding a lot of tension in my legs. Knowing the legs are a part of the first or "root" chakra, I recognized that I was not feeling grounded yet in my new home, and my legs were gripping as a result. I made a decision to connect with the earth by getting out in the garden, and being patient as I found my new footing.
- I was at a Yoga retreat and was getting a headache from many deep discussions. My teacher gently suggested that I "listen with my heart" or move my energetic focus from the head or "wisdom" chakra to the heart chakra. When I made this shift of perspective, I found that my experience had an entirely different quality-more receptive, compassionate.
Peace and love to you,
