Feel into the chakra
Recently, I've been shown the same scenario, and when this happens, again and again, I take a pause and ask, "what's the message here." If we get quiet, and observe, we always—always—get the clarity. But that's the challenge, in this world, is to be able to be the calm in the storm. Take a breath. Step outside, step into a closet if you have to, close your eyes, breathe deep into the bottom of your lungs, and ask, "what is the message?"
I know I've talked about the body messages before—Louise Hay's teachings start here. The body has a message, every time.
But I want to take that a step deeper this week and help you get practiced at this physical awareness process and listen, using your body as a transmitter for messages. At its most attuned state, the body can operate like a strong magnetic receiver. If you allow it to be just the transmitter, moving energy and emotion through it. From picking up synchronous directional feeds to guide you—to clearing ancestral emotional trauma—your body is a vehicle for moving energy.
The hangup is that our body tends to store energy like a battery, versus move the energy like a current.
When you have that awareness, that your body shouldn't store anything—from negativity to fat cells to free radicals—it should in fact move things, like nutrients through fiber. We eat food and excrete waste, right? Why don't we do that with energy and emotion?
One of my hacks for this is feeling into the chakra. If you aren't, get familiar with your chakra system, what these 7 energy centers represent, and what energies and emotions they relate to.
This is key, because the body part that feels the pain (let's say it's your shoulder) related to a chakra, in this case your heart chakra. And if you can say, "Okay shoulder, what are you telling me about my heart?" Then you pause, listen to your heart, breathe in the colors of green and pink, and you will always get a message.
Breathing into your chakras is a good practice to keep. It keeps your energy centers moving, processing energy and flowing it out like a current, and not holding on to the things that don't serve you. From your ancestral poverty stories to yesterday's argument with the neighbor.
Honor your emotions, and feel them, thank them, love them. But then move them through you, and don't let them store in the parts of your body—that will take on whatever you let it—and fester, sometimes for years, creating chronic issues like frozen shoulder.
