The 7 Chakras

images (5)In my quest to discover exactly what it takes to manifest my heart’s desires I have discovered some pretty interesting information.  Did you know that we are all just a ball of energy?  Weird, right!  But it’s true, we all have seven different chakras located inside of us, and each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color and specific functions that it governs.

A “chakra” by definition is, energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to the immune system and emotions.

Each of the seven chakras are positioned within our body from the base of our spine to the crown of our head.  Here is a list of all seven chakras and location, color and specific functions it governs.

  • Root (1st) — Base of the spine; red; governs survival instincts, grounding.
  • Sacral (2nd) — Lower abdomen; orange; governs sexuality, intuition, self-worth/self-esteem.
  • Solar Plexus (3rd) — Upper abdomen; yellow; governs impulse control, ego.
  • Heart (4th) — Center of the chest; green; governs compassion, spirituality.
  • Throat (5th) — Throat; blue; governs communication, emotion.
  • Third Eye (6th) — Between the eyes; purple; governs rationality, wisdom, imagination.
  • Crown (7th) — Top of the head; indigo; governs connection with the Divine.

The ability of your energy centers (chakras) to function optimally is what keeps you psychologically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually balanced.  Anytime a chakra becomes blocked, underactive or overactive, it can throw you off balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

More often than not, our chakras become unbalanced due to daily life pressures and the way that we handle them.  However, if your chakras are out of balance, overactive or underactive you can perform a cleansing technique called “energy healing” (see post on energy healing) to remove the blockage and/or negativity, and by doing that you will restore the chakra to its optimal balance.

Our bodies will tell us if our chakras are out of balance, overactive or underactive by exhibiting specific symptoms related to the unbalanced chakra.  Below is a description of how you may feel if a chakra is overactive and/or underactive.

Root Chakra

Fearful, nervous, insecure, or ungrounded; materialistic or greedy; resistant to change

Each of the chakras are associated with specific glands and organs in our body, and when they become unbalanced it triggers your body to exhibit specific symptoms related directly to the unbalanced chakra.  It’s pretty amazing that our body can speak to us, in the form of symptoms, as a way to alert us that a chakra is out of balance.  Below is a list of the glands and/or organs that each chakra is associated with and the symptoms you may experience if it becomes unbalanced.

Law of Attraction in daily life

download (11)

Okay, now that we have briefly explained what each of the fundamental laws that combine to create the law of attraction we can start to implement them into our daily lives.  Although this sounds easy and straightforward, I am still unsure where and how to start.

I think I will begin by constantly reminding myself that my thoughts create my reality! I am also going to make a conscience effort to practice believing in my desires and that I am worthy of receiving what the universe has to offer me.

I feel like those are two very important tools to master before I will ever see proof that the law of attraction works.  So, I will check in daily and update you on my progress, and I promise to be 100% honest and upfront about my personal findings.  My hope is that someone will read this at the exact moment that they are needing to and that my post will help them to get aligned with their true self so that they can also experience the peace, harmony and total happiness that can be experienced when you learn to be true to yourself.

Law of Attraction…does it work?

So, lately I have been reading up on ‘the law of attraction’ and I found that this stuff is actually pretty interesting.  As I have always been a believer of ‘karma’ and that one should live an honest and fulfilling life.  But, lately I have been feeling sort of stagnant and bored with my life, so I decided to give this law of attraction thing a go and see how it works out.  Later I will post my plan of action, but for now I wanted to expand on what the actual laws of attraction are and how we can implement them into our daily lives.

I did find out that there are seven fundamental laws of attraction, and they are:

1) The Law of Manifestation:images (5)

As I understand it, this law says that if you concentrate your thoughts on what you are lacking, you will only manifest more negativity.  But, if you concentrate on the things that bring you joy and happiness then you will manifest more happiness in your life.

 

2) The Law of Magnetism:

Ok, this one can be a little tricky.  But my interpretation for this law is that “like attracts like”.  If you are mad, sad, or angry that is what you will attract from the universe.  If you are happy, content, and grateful that is what you will get in return from the universe.  Does that make sense?  So, remember always try to steer yourself away from the negative thoughts because they will only cause you to attract more negativity into your life.

3) The Law of Pure Desire (or Unwavering Desire):

This law says that you must believe that you are worthy of receiving what you desire.  You must not let any doubts creep into your thoughts about your desire.  For pure desire is knowing that you are deserving and that it will happen.

 

4) The Law of Paradoxical Intent (or Delicate Balance):

The Law Of Paradoxical Intent points out the underlying paradox of personal achievement: That you can get what you want as long as you know that you are happy without it.  In other words, pursue your desires not because your life will suck without them, but because you want them to enhance your already happy life.

5) The Law of Harmony (or Synchronization):download

Have you ever wondered what we are all actually striving towards in this life?  The answer is harmony.  Everyone is striving for the same things, harmony and balance.  To put it simply, harmony is the flow of life.

6) The Law of Right Action (or Conscientious Action):

This law simply says, do unto others as you wish to have done to you!  Easy enough, right?

7) The Law of Expanding Influence (or Universal Influence):

To me, this law says that we should use our powers of influence to educate and help others, so that they too can raise their vibration.  As a whole universe if we all raise our vibration then the whole universes’ total vibration will also be raised.
