Day 16 already!  Third Eye Chakra!!!

I’m blown away by the personal successes I am finding through this continued chakra work.  Daily ~ everyday ~ for 16 days I’ve intentionally given thought, clarity, and purpose to each day. Focusing my intention on release blocks barring me from experiencing, enjoying, and expressing my true self.

It’s fully amazed me how each chakra has unintentionally aligned with some event in my life.  Revealing to me just how important it was to host this program.  

Intuition – having clarity, wisdom, vision, and trusting it to pull you forward. 

Moving on to the 6th chakra we begin to sense and see our own proper paths.  Ruling our senses, our nervous system, and our pituitary gland we rely on this energy center in the body.

Keeping it balanced can support our strong intuition, provide us with penetrating insight, creative imagination, good memory,good dream recall, ability to visualize, and a guiding vision for our lives.

However, excesses and deficiencies can cause imbalances.  Excessive characteristics can be hallucinations, delusions, obsessions, nightmares, intrusive memories, difficulty concentrating, and/or excessive fantasizing.  

Meanwhile, deficiencies can be noted by lack of imagination, difficulty visualizing, insensitivity, excessive skepticism,denial, or inability to see alternatives.

Regardless of where your balance sits within this chakra, there are treatments that can assist in strengthening or loosening each characteristic.  Aiding you in living your best life yet.  

I can’t wait to explore this third eye chakra further!  

In absolute health and wellness,

Creating our future with our voices.

I’ve noticed a pattern as we’ve been moving through each chakra.  The night before carrying on I’ve had issues to be resolved with someone in my bubble.  Mostly my family but it definitely hasn’t been limited to them.

I read somewhere that your resonance – your personal vibration – can be felt for a 50 mile radius. Of course, becoming more intense the closer a person is.  So literally, anytime you take a step toward bettering your life, raising your vibration, looking for mental clarity, or even eating better – these decisions are creating a ripple effect for your family, your friends, and your community.  

The throat chakra.  It’s importance in my life has always been obvious.  I have huge voice and ability to be present.  I often attempt to tame this aspect of me for the sake of others and for my own health.  I’m a true believer in expressing and releasing thoughts that may be holding us back.  Without acknowledging an issue it can hide within us for years causing dis-ease in our lives.  

Vishuddha – meaning purification.  Don’t let those thoughts go unnoticed or unspoken.  

Let’s check our balance.  If you are balanced you’ll have a resonant full voice, communicate well with others, communicate well with yourself, be a good listener with an understanding of timing and rhythm, and be living your life creatively! 

If you find yourself talking too much or inappropriately, gossiping and not bring able to contain confidences, find difficulty in being silent, stutter, or excessive loudness all point to excessive behaviors for this chakra.  

Our deficient characteristics are having difficulty putting things into words, fear of speaking, speaking with a small weak voice, being secretive, excessive shyness, and being tone deaf.

Balancing these excesses and deficiencies is possible.  Creative sounding to drumming music is a good way to loosen up those vocal cords.  Allow yourself to hum along with or allow natural unformed words to be released as you listen to drum music or binaural beats.  

By connecting with your natural sounds you can heal not only yourself but everyone within your 50 mile radius.  I encourage you to do it or reach out for more information.  You can email me here for events in your area.

In health and wellness.

Moving on…to the Heart!

At this late hour on day 9 of the 21 days of chakra balancing, cleansing, exploring, and/or focusing it’s occurred to me that it’s time to open that heart.  To make space for all the self-care, intimacy, and compassion you can handle. 

Again, what you intend, what you put into this program is what you’ll receive.  Is the daily effort worth your time?  Are you worth your time?  Absolutely. 

As soon as I begin to consider the heart chakra my mind wanders to Quan Yin the goddess of great compassion for self and for others.  Accepting everyone where they’re at knowing it’s the perfect space for them.  The timing is always perfect. No need to rush, feel guilty, shame, or criticize.  It’s all perfect 💚.  She is the embodiment of what it means to be open hearted, well for me anyways.  

That being said let’s move on to the exploration of our hearts center.

  What are our ideal foods?  How can we feed our body to nourishing this chakra and it’s dynamic needs?  Leafy greens!  The leafier the better!  Opening kindly and gently just the way we want our hearts to mirror.

Balance!  Do you have it in this chakra?  If yes you’ll find yourself to be mostly caring, compassionate, empathetic, accepting, self-loving, peaceful, centered, and content. 💚

The excesses.  Maybe you’re finding codependant relationships, excersizing poor boundaries, jealous, or being a martyr or a pleaser to often.

The deficiencies.  You’ve become anti-social or withdrawn, critical or intolerant, lonely, isolated, have a lack of empathy or a fear of intimacy.  

Balancing chakras can be something we spend the rest of our lives doing depending on situations and life changes.  

If the excesses and deficiencies discourage you know there is help.

Solar plexus chakra

Day 7?  What?!  How are we already 1/3 of the way through?  This week has flown by so fast for me and I’ve experienced some deep truths about both myself and how this program will work moving forward! 

Down to business!  I haven’t been posting about food in the main chakra introductory post and I realize now that it’s the best place to start.  Nourishing the basics, watering the roots to provide a strong supportive system.  So food… the food you want to support this chakra with are is dried beans, oats, legumes, spices.  I hear soaking them for easy digestion is the way to go.  

So how do you know when your solar plexus is in balanced?  You’ll have a positive sense of yourself.  Feel confident, energetic and warm.  You’ll be reliable but spontaneous and able to take risks, and you’ll find yourself with good self discipline.

If you’re excessive in this chakra you’ll be dominating, controlling, competitive, arrogant, ambitious, hyperactive, driven, stubborn and and attracted to sedatives.

If your deficient – you’ll be passive, have a lack of energy, poor digestion, cold, submissive, have low self esteem, weak will and poor self discipline.

You should have a good idea where you’re needing to focus your energy at this point aiming for a healthy, balanced solar plexus will be the goal of the next 3 days.  Whether I will enjoy three days of curried lentils or indulge in fried plantains and banana ice cream, it’s hard to say!

Sacral Chakra 

Welcome to day 4 of our journey through the chakras.  Now that we have assesed our “vehicle” and have an understanding of the foundation we can move on to the 2nd or Sacral Chakra.  The element water begins to take over here.  Moving from the firm support of the earth to the ever moving and flowing softness of the water element.  A brilliant shade of orange illuminates our creativity, our appetites, and our desires in life.  

Check in with your 2nd chakra right behind your belly button between your hip bones.  Are you balanced? If yes, you may experience graceful movements, emotional intelligence, healthy boundaries, passion, sexual satisfaction, nurturing of self and others, and the ability to embrace change.

If you’re in excess, sexual addictions, obsessive attachments, excessive mood swings, become super sensitivity, poor boundaries of your own and those around you, instability, or addiction to stimulation may be darkening your Sacral Chakra. 

Deficiencies may create rigidity in our body and beliefs, numbness (emotionally) or insensitivity, a fear of change, lack of desire, poor social skills, or avoidance of pleasure and fear of sexuality.

Disolving our boundaries and exploring this chakra intimately is the biggest obstacle for me.  So carrying that awareness and scceptance throughout this next 3 day period I intend to honor where I am at.  To use the Mudra’s, the Meditations, and the Yoga Asana’s to honestly explore and release any fears or blockages not serving me.  Will you do the same?   When we truly begin to water our roots the growth and connection can begin.

Without water there is no growth ~ water makes life juicy!

Thanks for being with me on this journey.

Building the foundation 

Foundation.  It’s a process I have never really understood.  I skip through to the big ideas, pulling in connections, generating excitement, and then surprised as hell when it all falls through.

Day 1 of my chakra cleanse taught me about the importance of caring for the physical body the very foundation of our entire life.   This body is the one and only we have and it truly needs to be maintained, cared for, and honored as the sacred temple it is.  

The way I came to understand it fully was through my oil change.  Now laugh if you will but I’m totally not kidding.   

I’ve been wanting to run into a neighboring city for a fun looking “surf set” class but the oil change light came on alerting me to the fact that I only had 3% life left to my oil.  So in my slippers and with my coffee I visited the local drive through oil change garage!  It felt good to take care of my car.  Have it checked up on and acknowledge where the work needs to be done and change the wiper~ this alone changed my perspective in the world. 😉

Sitting in my quiet car I began to realize what an asset it is to my life.  The amount of road trips it has taken me on.  The amount of revenue I’ve generated and the cost of hotels I’ve saved because of it.  It has really served me so well.  The least I can do is keep the fluids clean, cared for, and air in the tires. 

Just like my car, my body does the same for me but in a much more significant way.  My body serves me for my entire life and I’ve lived an incredibly healthy one up to this point!  Strong, agile, and able this body serves me well and it deserves an incredible amount of respect.  So here I am.  21 days of chakra cleansing yoga, meditation, Mudra’s, and more honoring the temple that carries me.

Have you been caring for your bodies basic needs?  Physically, mentally, and sprititually?  If not what is stopping you?  Are you living in fear or anxiety?  How can I help get you on track?  I am open and ready to assist ❤

Root chakra

In a perfect world we would find ourselves in perfect harmony. things flowing in our favor often and feeling at one with the universe. But in reality we tend to gathered these experiences that can hold us back from experiencing our best lives yet.

That’s where balancing the chakras can comes in!  We’ll begin …well at the beginning!  

The first chakra we will be focusing is our root chakra or Muladhara!  You can locate it at the base of your spine and it “should” be a bright red.  Symbolized by the 4 petal lotus flower.

Literal Meaning “base of support”
Are you supporting yourself well?

[ ]If yes you’re balanced: you will feel a groundedness, a sense of connection with the earth, physically healthy, comfortable in your own body, safe, secure, stable, as though you are in the right liveliness for you, able to be still and present.

[ ]If the chakra is in excesses: heaviness, sluggish, slow movements, resistant to change, overeating, obesity, hoarding, material fixation, greediness, excessive spending, or workaholism could be weighing you down.  To heal or balance these excesses we look at the action of letting go.

[ ]Or if the chakra is deficient: fear, anxiety, resistance to structure, anorexia, underweight, spaciness, flighty, vague, disconnection from your body, restless, inability to manifest, could be plaguing your daily life.  To heal these deficiencies we look at holding on, focusing, or receiving.

Which one feels more true to you?

REMEMBER: you have a basic right to be here and to take up space.

The next three days will focus on this chakra with more tidbits of info flowing in, and videos to follow along with in your own time.  If you haven’t discussed cost/payment.  Please email me at inspiremywellness@gmail.com.  it etransfer your $33 payment to inspiredwellness.amanda@gmail.com
