Book Recommendation: Wheels of Life, The Classic Guide To The Chakra System by Anodea Judith

anodea judith wheels of lifI’ve just about finished this beautifully written book of wisdom and I read it pretty fast too. It’s detailed description of the seven chakra system is as useful as it is enlightening. Anodea Judith PH.D. is an absolute expert on the subject and goes into depth about each energy centre and making suggestions that are easy to use such as breathing techniques, yoga asanas and meditations. Wheels of life was first released in 1999, and now 20 years later is more relevant than ever.

To be honest the reason I bought this particular book was because it goes next level and gives some truth to telepathy and clairvoyance in a matter of fact way speaking from experience both from her many clients and personal experience.

These extra sensory perceptions are not limited to super natural films but are being widely discovered by humans everywhere. I just love that if someone doesn’t believe that every human has the potential to be psychic I can now direct them to a credible source and specific energy centre, not just say look at ‘WikiHow’.

Our world is changing and has been changing since it’s evolution, Judith makes correlations between historical events and astrological cycles and confirms that humanity is currently in the midst of moving upward from the solar plexus issues of  control and power to the heart chakra where we are becoming connected, more unified, accepting and compassionate. One example being the circular economy, giving less energy to capitalism’s buy and throw model to a buy, swap, sew, fix, upcycle, recycle, gift  and basically keep using what we have instead of buying new.

Anodea has written a number of books to educate people in a way that is easily adaptable to westerners, Eastern Body, Western Mind which talks about addiction and sexuality in relation to eastern philosophy, and The Chakra System, A user’s guide to self diagnosis and healing  which takes the reader on a journey through that seven chakras root to crown detailing deficiencies and over active traits of each one, with yoga asanas specific to each chakra, starting with very important grounding techniques.

If you are on the journey of self discovery Anodea Judith is a worthy source of wisdom that can enlighten you on a number of issues we deal with in life. Easy to use, simple advice for personal empowerment and development.

 

 

Solar powered Solar plexus

It is so important to have a healthy solar plexus to bring our ideas and desires to life.

I think of  the solar plexus and directly relate it to physical action, confidence, our motivation and will power.

Our solar plexus and sense of power can be influenced by many factors in this instance I would like to mention authority figures.

Think about it.

People in power have authority and if you are subject to this power you lose your own sense of personal power, your self worth and belief in yourself which in affect can directly change the desired outcome of your manifestations.

What we manifest into our life has a direct correlation to what we believe we are worthy of as well, another characteristic of this chakra.

Our level of self worth more or less determines the life we live, if we want to manifest an oasis our energy needs to be in alignment – L.O.A.

The Law of Attraction is an interesting one, I have read The Power the sequel of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. In fact I found it in a free library next to Romeo & Juliet and it tells some amazing real life happenings of how this universal law manifests itself for her in literally miraculous ways.

Now, I am wondering; how beneficial is it to see something and manifest it into your life if it isn’t in alignment with your soul urge and life purpose.

At this point in my life I am looking at how I have manifested a dream job and lifestyle but the feeling of contentment isn’t here and I believe the reason that it feels off is these manifestations disregarded my soul urge. On top of that a lack of confidence in myself means I can not fully connect to the higher chakras and my higher self.

They were a combination of my wants mixed with the feeling I need to satisfy my parents in some way. Our relationships that are typically authoritarian seem to be between parents and children, teachers and students and people promoting societal norms despite an individuals preferences.

It is never a popular decision for a person to be non-conformist to these kind of authority figures but energy wise it is much more beneficial to follow your hearts yearning. If you conform to their ideas if can create blocks in your solar plexus.

Solar plexus blockages include thing like feeling not good enough, a small blockage can result in a lack of confidence where a more severe blockage affects self-esteem and will take longer to heal. You may notice people who feel the need to control everyone and everything around them, who lack direction, possess a sense of helplessness and unresolved guilt all stemming from a blocked solar plexus. Physical symptoms include poor digestion and poor short term memory.

Strengthening your solar plexus involves practicing will power, a good way to do this is by setting attainable goals and ticking them off. You may need to be assertive in your communications with other people. Being physical is also good advice as it is a masculine energy centre it uses yang energy, energy that you put out, so moving your body by running, dancing, doing yoga asanas and even just a workout focusing on you abdominal muscles can all help to get energy flowing through this powerful place.

 

Happy healing!
