day 16 

Homework

We’ve already done some work around envisioning the life we want.  Now is the time to get real specifi.

What is the life that you say you want? Write about what that life looks like. 
1- write a general overview of how the life you say you want looks like 
2 - write specifically about career 
3 - write specifically about health
4 - write specifically about finances 
5 - write specifically about relationships
6 - write specifically about happiness

Write about these things as though they are already here.

Use positive language

"I am doing this"
rather than
“I will be doing this”

Have fun with this!

I love #chakratalk

day 16 balasana, child pose
Get super low to the earth
ground down
rest your forehead to the ground, or a block, or your hands.  Stimulating your third eye chakra.  Your center of intuition, wisdom and knowledge.  Get real still and quiet and see what comes up.
Here’s a little write up on the third eye, ajna, chakra.

This is the command center and the center of perception.

The 3rd eye chakra goes beyond the elements and brings us into the realm of light. This chakra is concerned with positive thinking. Positive thinking increases endorphins in the bloodstream restoring health. A healthy 3rd eye can aid in the control of our physical bodies as well as our minds.

Steady mind = Steady body Healthy mind = Healthy body

This chakra is about the power of the mind. It’s in the mind that we begin to transform our lives and implement our dreams. Really responsive to positive affirmations - planting sees in the subconscious mind - re-programming our thought patterns to include greater happiness and well-being.

This chakra is activated in adult life and comes once we have some life experience to play against some of the ideas that we’e held on to since childhood. Any psychological arrestment that we faced due to suppression, either cultural or familial, will delay this chakras development.

It’s important to work through old habits and thought patterns with positivity and develop a strong and independent mind. Examining self-limiting ideas that degrade our worth.

Stay tuned for the next post for homework :-)

HOMEWORK -day 15 #chakratalk

Your voice is the one that counts ~ Just as hearing positive things about ourselves, and saying positive daily affirmations can help us to assert our worth and walk our Truth, so too can hearing negative things about ourselves or using negative self talk block off our throat chakra. Spend a whole day listening to your inner voice - that running dialogue that narrates your day as you go. Make notes about what you’re telling yourself throughout the day. Good and bad. Go back over your notes and see if what you’re telling yourself is helping to propel you forward or holding you back. Create positive affirmations to combat any negative self talk. ex “I am enough” “I can do it” “I’m braver than I think”. Repeat these affirmations! Write them down and post them everywhere!!! Now when you go throughout the day you’ll have a response to any negative self talk and you can start to notice when you’re doing it and slim it down.

we have the best hosts!

Day 15 #chakratalk

I cant believe we only have one week left!!  I love this challenge.  Every minute of it.

Fish pose
I like to start flat on my back
lift your hips up
place your hands under your hips
palms facing down
press down into your hands while you puff your chest up
gather your elbows in
release your head back
gently rest the crown of your head to the floor
let some breath sigh out your mouth

Throat chakra is where seeds of inspiration exist. Being in touch with this chakra helps us to plant the seeds of creative self expression. Writing, singing, poetry, dance, speaking, are all ways of communicating ourselves and are all expressions of this chakra.

Archetypes: Positive ~ The Communicator ~ lives from personal integrity, tells the Truth and their word can be trusted. Stand up for themselves. Can express themselves freely -putting words to their feelings

Negative ~ The Silent Child ~ suppressed feelings because of fear or shame. Hide their feelings, not connected to the higher Truth

Communication is a two way street. It’s not only important for us to speak our Truth but for us to listen to others Truth. Being a good listener means staying present in a conversation and truly listening to whomever is speaking (not just waiting for your turn to speak). When we are truly present and listening from a place of non-judgement and non-attachment we can hear what Truth is being spoken.

Not speaking up for yourself, as well as stopping listening are two ways of blocking the throat chakra.

The 5th chakra is a gateway to higher spiritual realms, where we can hear guidance. Sitting in silence and opening up to your higher Self or a Universal Truth can help you hear your own Truth. It’s essential to learn to listen with our inner ear to tune into our higher mind which shares our Truth.

**Stay tuned for the homework post** :-):-)

Day 14 #chakratalk

halasana, plough pose
img credit: yoganonymous

from shoulder stand
hinge at your hips
lower your feet over your head
stay long through your spine
space between your chin and your chest
toes touch the floor
breathe. 5-10 breaths

The throat chakra is directly linked to communication. When we speak our Truth and stand our ground we’re acting out of a place of our true Self and asserting our place in the world. It’s essential for our health and well-being to express ourselves freely, openly and truly from the heart. Repressed feelings of anger, fear and grief can block the throat chakra. So too can lying, gossip and saying ‘yes’ when you really mean ‘no’.

This chakra is a vessel for subtle energy and willpower. When we communicate openly and honestly, an energetic seal forms around the throat; conserving and channelling energy throughout the body - physically, emotionally, spiritually. This energy strengthens our will and this strengthened will can be used for spiritual development, taking us further on our journey. When we suppress our true feelings and aren’t living honestly, this willpower is taken up and used to simply get through the daily tasks of life, halting our way along the spiritual path.

Unbalanced: underactive - lethargic, fear of speaking (second guess what you say), slower metabolism, stiff neck, shoulders and tense jaw

guess what you say) , have trouble listening, unrestrained indulgence

Balanced: hear and speak the Truth, allow things to happen as they should. Acknowledge that challenges and unpleasant things are all part of our greater whole. Comfortable expressing ideas. Embrace creativity. Living from a place of Truth and integrity.

Writing:  Here are some prompts
What is your Truth?
Do you honour your personal Truth?
When have you said “yes” when you really meant “no”?
Can you tell when others are being Truthful?


So much love

We’re back!  #chakratalk

Hope you’re all having the best day!!  Thanks again for joining in on the chakra journey. 

We’re moving on up to the throat chakra.

Day 13 pose
sarvangasana, shoulder stand
laying on your back
legs to the ceiling
roll you hips off the ground
legs come overhead, parallel to the floor
place your hands, fingers facing up, at your lower back
raise your legs straight up
toes in line with your eyes
keep some space between your chin and your chest
stay and breathe
20 breaths

Here’s some info on Vishuddha, the throat chakra

Just as the theme for the heart chakra was all about love, the theme for the throat is all about the Truth. Speaking the Truth, hearing the truth, living from a place of truth.

Vishuddha, means pure or purification and refers to us expressing our Truth and living a clean and healthy life.

With an open heart we can speak and communicate ourselves from a place of love, compassion and understanding.

It’s not just what we’re communicating but how we’re communicating. It’s not just what we choose to say but what we choose to keep inside. We need to express ourselves openly, honestly and without reservation!!!

"What we speak becomes the house we live in". ~Hafiz

Location: inner and outer throat Sense: Hearing / Sound Element: Ethers - all things contained Bija Mantra: Ham Body Parts: neck, throat, jaw, mouth, ears Colour: Blue - turquoise ~ beauty of universal spirit. Represents all forms of creative expression, communication, Truth and willpower.

Tips to Balance: Create! Practice saying “no” Sit still and in silence Use your voice! Sing, chant, sigh Wear blue Speak daily affirmations

Homework: Start to notice when you feel vulnerable throughout the day. What does this feel like? What do you do? Write about it. 

Write out a few affirmations for yourself and speak them out loud every morning and every night. (Try it in front of a mirror) 

Use your voice!!!! Sing, chant, sigh. Free up space to express yourself!!!
