Alchemy of Balance: Using Chakras and Chanting

Each day, I ask myself “How do I maintain balance in order to live my best day ever?” As much as I try to stay balanced, I have learned that I can easily lose it. Balance may be easy to find, but it is hard to sustain. This is because we are the only ones who can do the inner work of maintaining it. Francis Braceland writes, “We can be sure that the greatest hope for maintaining equilibrium in the face of any situation rests within ourselves.” So how do we find and maintain balance? I have discovered two tools: Chakras & Chant. Chakras The Chakras, which are the seven main energy centers in the body that receive, absorb and distribute life energies are a natural starting place. The Chakras…

How to Manifest Change in Your Life

“CHANGE YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR YOURSELF: EXPECT THE BEST, EXPECT YOUR FORTUNES TO CHANGE, EXPECT A MIRACLE. REACQUAINT YOURSELF WITH THAT VISION.” Dr. Wayne Dyer  To manifest change, you have to change something yourself. A key change is your perception of yourself, shifting from seeing yourself as someone who sticks to the old and comfortable all the time, to now someone who likes to mix things up. Not all change is created equally. You can choose to mix gradual transformation along with immediate transformation. It can be helpful to think about making these shifts as though you are making them through water, and through fire. Let the alchemical elements inspire your process. Slow transformation is ruled by the Water element, 2ndchakra. Fast transformation is ruled by the Fire element, 3rdchakra. Some…

Mantras + Chanting

 The word mantra means “tool” for the mind”. From the Shiva Sutras: man= to reflect, to be aware, tra= that which saves: “mental awareness by which one feels one’s identity with the highest reality enshrined in a mantra, and thus saves oneself from a sense of separateness and difference characteristic of the world”. Sally Kempton says that mantra are articulated sounds that approximate the “unsounded sound,” the vibration of the infinite that throbs in the silence of pure consciousness. High, subtle vibrations are said to be embedded in the syllables of mantra; they are said to be sounds heard by sages long ago (Rishis). Yoga Sutra II.33: vitarka badhane pratipaksha bhavanam Upon being harassed by negative thoughts, one should cultivate counteracting thoughts. MANTRAS + BENEFITS OM SHAM SHANAYA NAMAHA Promotes calm…

Chakra 101: Sahaswara, The Crown Chakra

By Silvia Mordini, Featured on Yoganonymous.com About Crown Chakra: “In physics, a singularity is a point of infinite density and infinitesimal volume. Singularities exist at the center of black holes, which are regions of space that have a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape. Likewise, the pull of your purpose combined with your core priorities is so intense, so massive; that nothing you do can escape its influence. Every thought you have, every decision you make, and every action you take is pulled by this force.” – Isaiah Hankel from Black Hole Focus The seventh chakra is depicted as a fully blooming, thousand-petaled lotus flower at the crown of your head. The roots of this lotus flower are connected to the Earth and its petals stem out from the…

Chakras 101: Ajna, The Third Eye Chakra

Featured on Yoganonymous.com About Ajna Chakra How do I see myself? We learn from yoga that our world is created from the inside out. We communicate with ourselves first and this is echoed back to us. A powerful sixth chakra mantra related to this is “May I seek only the truth.” The truth is that you create your reality. “All I’m saying is that to liberate the potential of your mind, body and soul, you must first expand your imagination. You see, things are always created twice: first in the workshop of the mind and then, and only then, in reality. I call this process ‘blueprinting’ because anything you create in your outer world began as a simple blueprint in your inner world.” – Robin Sharma, The Monk Who Sold…

Water Ritual: A Healing Practice

Water Ritual: A Healing Practice By: Sarah Erter Within the Chakra System, water is associated with Svadhistana — the second chakra, housed within the pelvis. It represents our emotions, desires, raw creative energy, and sense of pleasure. Just as the ocean’s tides are pulled by the Moon, the Moon governs the water element within us. Svadhistana is experienced through the color orange, the sense of taste, and the vibrations of its seed sound, “vam.” When out of balance, second chakra blockages manifest through mental + physical stiffness (particularly within the hips + low back), guilt or shame, health issues impacting the reproductive system, or a restricted sense of being able to fully feel, express, or release emotions, or enjoy life’s pleasures. In yoga philosophy, water rituals correspond to the practice…

Alchemy of Stability: Earth Energy of Root Chakra The Root Chakra is also known as the Earth Chakra. Truth is, we all benefit from having more of an Earth personality. Characteristics include stability, reliability, and thoughtfulness. An earth person has a reputation for being nurturing and grounded. People we value as dear friends are often those that are self-accepting, peaceful and supportive. They are comfortable with who they are. We can achieve this by investing time into stabilizing our Root Chakra. When we’re at home with ourselves, we’re less likely to worry. When we are grounded, our roots go deeper, providing us more physical and emotional stability. Like a plant, the deeper the root base, the bigger the bloom above ground. The stronger we are in our foundation, the more…
