As children we were able to draw on it, always just knowing that we wanted to be a fireman, police woman, doctor, astronaut, artist, lawyer, dancer, scientist, or a princess.

Known as Muladhara, you will find this particular chakra at your spine’s base. Consider it, if you would, the very plug that connects you to the life force of the Earth herself and assists you to remain grounded. When this chakra is in balance, you should feel secure and stable. Should it become imbalanced, however, you may feel somewhat stuck (or lost) in life and find yourself focusing on subjects that do not serve your greatest interests. Read the rest of this entry »
I often hear my clients describe their grief as “my heart has a hole in it” or “my heart has been ripped apart.” When we grieve it does feel as if our heart will never heal. It’s like your physical body is having an actual heart attack.
What each grieving individual experiences is different. Grief has so many different forms and it is impossible to know how it will affect each individual person. We each grieve in our own way.
There is also no time-frame on grief. The length of time a person may grieve is very individual some people may start to feel a little better seven to ten weeks. For others it may be years. Read the rest of this entry »

Chakra theory originates from Hindu mysticism. There are seven main chakras (there are others too) in the body. Chakras are also known as energy vortices. Each chakra is associated with a different color, as well as various physical, emotional and spiritual issues. Reiki is an example of a metaphysical system of energy work that uses the chakra system as the focus of intent.
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine where the coccyx is located. It is associated with the color red and our feelings of stability and how we relate to the physical world. Some of the issues related to this energy vortex are problems finding housing or work, or an inability or unwillingness to take control of our lives. Problems with this chakra may also show up as an inability to create organization when dealing with tasks and jobs. Read the rest of this entry »

How long do they linger on this earth before making a transition? That too has many theories attached to it.

The soul contained in the physical body possessed many aspects that all had different spiritual duties. Read the rest of this entry »
Crystals and gemstones have been used by almost every culture for healing and mystical purposes. They amplify the user’s vibration and bring to the healing practice their own energy and symbolism.
