I took a crash course in chakra balancing a couple of weeks ago and it was the best thing I've done in a long time. I have been called to work on my chakras for quite some time and I have been tending to them in many different ways intuitively and on routine for over a year. But my scientific and concrete side has been anxious about not having any actual basic knowledge. I mean, of course I know of the chakras and the system and all the things but I haven't like read a book or studied them. So to expand my inner database and to be able to take my practice deeper and make it more profound I signed up for a very basic but perfectly doable online course via the Oh La Moon community. When I first read about it I feared it wasn't advanced enough but then I realized that if I was going to sit around waiting for a cheap and short in-depth chakra course to come my way I would have to craft it myself and also - doing something short and simple can sometimes be the most efficient way to enlightenment. I mean, it doesn't always have to be a struggle with tests and diplomas, right? Anyway, so I took the course - it took me about a total of maybe 3-4 hours to memorize and also complete the meditations that came along - and I was so happy afterwards and so proud of myself for following through. And it was enough! Now I have the tools I need to tune into and to balance my chakras on a daily basis. How awesome is that! 🌈
What I loved the most about the course was that I could work with my crystals as I was doing the meditations. For me, it is really helpful to have props. So now, when I work on my chakras I can pick up a crystal and place it on the chakra or bring it with me throughout the day in case I need a little bit of extra support. If I have time I also do the meditations in the course for one chakra per day which has me going through all of them in one week. That was I always stay balanced, or at least I commit to staying balanced. I don't know about you, but I really feel that this inner work is helping me to center and ground myself into my body. I also love to dress in the color of the chakra that I'm working on that particular day. For some reason that just makes me so happy because I love colors.
I can talk about this subject all day long. In fact, there aren't simply 7 chakras. We actually have 12 of them and they correlate with the 12 strands of DNA that our bodies are crafted with. The other 5 chakras are placed above the head, in an upright direction, connecting your physical body and your celestial mind in space. Now, this topic is an entire new blogpost but I just wanted to touch upon it briefly since I think it's so fascinating. I did a lot of activation on these 5 chakras during last summer and now when I've been doing this work I think I'm ready to explore this a little bit more again. So stay tuned for a follow-up on this topic in the future.
