How Reiki and the Chakras Can Help Us Find Our Way

The chakras contain our belief systems and our core programs of operation. We are born and raised into our programming. The chakras run automatically in accordance with the belief systems that are stored in them. They do not change their mode of operation unless they are directed to do so. Making sure these energy centers in our body are in agreement with what we actually believe to be true is vital to living a happy and fulfilled life.

If our base operating system contains things that are not in alignment with what is true for us, many of our actions towards goals and achievements will be undermined. Confusion and apathy in regards to purpose and direction is often a sign that something is amiss in one or more of our chakras.

  • The first chakra contains all our survival information.

  • The second chakra is the center for sexuality, emotions, pleasure, connecting with others, creativity, intuition.  

  • The third chakra represents our action, will, vitality, power of transformation, self worth, self confidence.

  • The heart chakra is the center of love and inner peace as experienced within as a state of being.

  • The throat chakra represents communication, sound, creativity through expression.

  • The third eye chakra represents our ability to see and focus on the big picture, decision making, psychic ability, higher intuition.

  • The crown chakra is related to spiritual connection and enlightenment.

The descriptions above are a general overview of what the chakras contain. The chakra centers actually carry very nuanced energy that are layered and integrated with each other. For some people it could take years of processing to get to the core of each mismatched belief system in a way that allowed them to be free of them.

Reiki is a wonderful way to clear out programming that no longer serves you with much greater ease. Energy follows intention. Through the focused intention of a reiki practitioner, reiki can be channeled into the chakra centers. The high frequency of reiki raises the vibrations of the chakras causing them to be a mismatch for any vibrations that are not a fit for health and well being. Like a sieve, Reiki filters out those energies that are not a match for who you really are allowing you to move forward through life in alignment with your true self. No more clouded thinking. No more self doubt. No more second guessing. Only clarity, ease, and contentment.

Self-Care on the Weekdays

While I’m sitting here in the office at 5pm on a Monday, the sun is down and city lights are glowing through the window. It makes me realize that I haven’t taken the time today to give myself any attention. Of course I took care of the little things like food and heigen but other then that, I haven’t done anything else. So what I can do now that it’s the end of my day and all I want to do is put on my pajamas and curl up on the couch.

These are my go to options when I need some self-care but don’t have extra energy.

  1. Tea - something easy, I like something herbal and fruity at night.

  2. MagCalm - Not only will this help me sleep but it will help my muscles to not cramp after my long day on my feet.

  3. Foam Rolling - Many of you know how I really feel about this

  4. Stretching - while watching something on Netflix it’s a great time to roll around on the floor stretching and playing with the dog.

  5. Heat Pack - pajamas and heat pack before bed is always great.

  6. Essential Oils - a defuser is an easy way to calm yourself down as well as make your whole house smell amazing! I love using our Lavender or Tonify Earth at home when my days are stressful. If I feel a cold coming on, I like Lime Peel or Eucalyptus to keep my sinuses clear.

  7. Epsom Salts - Wether I’m sitting or standing all day, my days are long lately so a hot bath with some epsom salts is a great way to relax my body and mind before a restful sleep.

  8. Meditation - deep breathing or a simple guided meditation track is an easy way to give myself some attention.

  9. Sombra - almost always part of nightly routine … I slather it on my arms, chest and low back the most, then curl up in bed and wait for the chilly tingle to kick in before I fall asleep.

  10. Dance Party for 1- Only good on nights when I have the energy but even on some nights when I don’t think I do, there is nothing better then listening to some great dance music and dancing around out house alone to blow off some of the stress of the day.

Insurance Empowerment

Do you ever feel like insurance jargon is a totally different language? Well, it kind of is. Here we will uncover some basics that will hopefully leave you feeling empowered about this consumer-based healthcare world we find ourselves teetering on the edge of. We will focus on defining some vocabulary and lining out some questions to ask your HR rep at work or insurance customer service. Or even better, you can find the answers yourself by reading through the benefit summaries your plan/administrator is required to deliver to you.
