Understanding the Heart Chakra

Understanding the Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is the space of Divine love, unconditional love. This is a feeling and a depth of emotion that is given and received without motive or expectations; the nonjudgmental energy we use to heal ourselves and others; the foundation of compassion and forgiveness. The Anahata holds the space of human kindness, gratitude, and forgiveness, and is the center of our love for others, our love for ourselves, and the Universal love of all.

Understanding the Solar Plexus Chakra

Understanding the Solar Plexus Chakra
One of the main benefits of a healthy Third Chakra is a sense of equanimity: being so content and secure within your Self that no matter what arises in your life, you can meet the situation with grace and confidence in your abilities. When the Manipura is balanced, you are centered within your personal power, proud and accepting of being who you are – instead of stressing about what you are not.

Understanding the Sacral Chakra

Understanding the Sacral Chakra
The key to understanding the Sacral Chakra is understanding that the energy it houses is all creative, emotional energy. It’s just being channeled in different directions. The force you feel to paint a masterpiece is the same passion expressed in a luscious sexual encounter – it’s all sweetness. 

Understanding the Root Chakra

Understanding the Root Chakra
The Root Chakra is considered the foundation of the entire chakra system, supporting the energy centers above it and helping to maintain their balance. It establishes the connection between your physical body and the spiritual Earth. This chakra holds our survival instinct, our need for nourishment, and our sense of safety and security on the physical plane. This energy is our primal nature, our animal instinct to exist and endure.

Living 'Face-First'

Living 'Face-First'
Like most of us, when I was in my mid-teens to early twenties I didn’t understand much about myself. What’s worse, in my case, is that I have always been overly empathetic. It comes easy to me to assess the emotional state of others, and to not only know how they feel but able to understand why. This was an issue because as it got easier to share other people’s feelings, it became harder to understand mine. I could relate to others better than to myself.
