Day One of chakra cleanse

So I am feeling a cleanse and detox coming on and why not combine this with my reiki.

After much research..thanks Google.  I have decided to do 3 days with each juice.  I do love a smoothie and juice so this will be a fabulous way to raise energy detox and hopefully strengthen my reiki.

Just for today I shall work on my root chakra and drink lots of red colours in my juices.  My juice is beets red apples and ginger. Ginger is a fabulously grounding spice and one I find great for digestion.

Let’s see what magic awaits. X

Pause, Breathe and Change

“Can you accept the notion that once you change your internal state, you don’t need the external world to provide you with a reason to feel joy, gratitude, appreciation, or any other elevated emotion?”
Joe Dispenza, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One

Been reading and practicing daily Dr Joe Dispenza Meditation for improving the emotional aspect of my personality that I have no use for.  I do not need to feel anxious or live fearfully that anxiety may show its face so I say CHANGE out loud when I feel that horrible anxiety feeling inside my stomach.  Okay so I don’t shout it out loud in the middle of a supermarket but I will say change, I then bring about the new personality that I am creating for myself.

So how do you choose this new personality – Look at someone that has the personality that you would like and pretend you are them.  I am not saying – don’t be yourself and change your whole personality.  It is just one aspect such as irrational fear or anger, this is not useful to us and we must show our self compassion and love.

So who did I pick…now I like the calmness of the Dali lama, I love the ambition and confidence of Will Smith, I also love the light heartedness of Peter Kay.  So depending on a situation, I choose one of these dudes to emulate.  I don’t crack jokes or sit and share my wisdom from my years of sitting in meditation, but I do visualise in my head how they would deal with a situation and take a few breaths in feeling pure joy and I have a little word with myself.

I like to listen to motivational speeches on youtube or Spotify and generate that feeling within me of being happy motivated.

One day I will Master my mind, but for now I do lots of things daily and am on my way to a calmer more confident patient mind.

The Root Chakra – How to Balance it

 

Image result for root chakra

Located at the base of the spine, the pelvic floor, and the first three vertebrae, the root chakra is responsible for your sense of safety and security on this earthly journey. The word Muladhara breaks down into two Sanskrit words: Mula meaning “root” and Adhara, which means “support” or “base.”

This is the first of the chakras of matter. Balancing the root chakra creates the solid foundation for opening the chakras above. Imagine that you’re laying the foundation for a house in which you’re going to live for a long time. A solid foundation embedded in firm soil will provide the stability you need to create a home filled with joy for years to come.

The root chakra is comprised of whatever grounds you to stability in your life. This includes your basic needs such as food, water, shelter, and safety, as well as your more emotional needs such as letting go of fear. When these needs are met, you feel grounded and safe, and you tend to worry less day to day.

Imbalances in the Root Chakra

If there is an imbalance in the root chakra you may experience anxiety disorders, fears, or nightmares. Physical imbalances may manifest as problems in the colon, with the bladder, with elimination, or with lower back, leg, or feet issues. In men, prostate problems may occur. Eating disorders may also be a sign of a root chakra imbalance.

How to Balance Muladhara

While meditation does connect you to a higher spiritual plane, it also serves to ground you. You may not always be able to trust that the world will give you what you need to survive, but connection to your higher self and trust in a power higher than yourself will give you what you need to feel safe.

It does not matter if you call that higher power Consciousness, Mother Nature, God, or Spirit. Connection to universal energy will bring you a sense of peace and stability. The animals in the forest have no idea if and when they will find food each day, yet somehow they trust in

This is an exercise to strengthen this connection to the ground.

Stand up straight and relaxed.
Put your feet shoulder width apart.
Slightly bend your knees.
Put your pelvis somewhat forward.
Keep your body balanced, so that your weight is evenly distributed over the soles of your feet.
Sink your weight downward.
Keep in this position for several minutes

Imagine in  your mind that you have roots like a tree and they are going through your root chakra and deep down into the earth until they hit the centre of the earth and a bright white light then comes up through the roots and back into the base of your spine.  Do this three times whilst breathing in slowly through the nose and out through the nose.

Another Technique to Unblock your Root Chakra

Relax and clear your mind. Once you are fully relaxed, take a moment to center yourself then visualize each of the chakras opening like a flower. When doing this exercise it is important not to force them to open. It is also alright if they do not open fully on your first try. If one does not open, try again tomorrow. One reason for this is because they have been dormant. Please remember if they have been blocked, to go slowly with this exercise. Once they are open, you might notice a tingling this is normal and it means you are receiving the energy your body needs. The whole exercise should take about five minutes.
The crystal you need for the root chakra is Ruby, Garnet, Tourmaline, smoky quartz, Bloodstone, Black onyx and Agate.   Pick one.

So what is everyones happy place?  The memory that first popped into your mind where you were truly happy.   No drunken pill popping moments, boo… I have so many of those ones.. They have to be real happy moments from your heart.

So what was mine.  –  I was in Magaluf, Party Heaven. Yes I know I said no drunken ones and this really isn’t.  So picture this.. Its Daytime, its sunny and I am on a Pedalo with my friend and little brother who  came to visit me for a holiday.  (I was a Pr rep living the dream!) Well,  her little brother was desperate for a pee but was scared that sharks would get him..He was 14 and a little drama queen and I loved to wind him up!! So I told him to just pee in the water..so he did..Then we wouldn’t let him back on the pedalo and I nearly wet myself laughing at him splashing around screaming like a little girl…Ok so I sound like a cruel b*tch but honestly he was laughing too…It has always stuck with me as It was true hilarity and a beautiful care free day with only fun and games on my mind.

 

From the Inside Out

Since I started looking into different sorts of techniques to improve myself I realised that there were so many to choose from and wow, where the hell do I start?

Who doesn’t want to feel full of energy and to be happy, I sure as hell do.  I don’t want to spend time worrying about things that will more than likely never happen.  I, after all am fully responsible for my own thoughts and no one else.  So I hereby state that my thoughts will be mainly happy positive and full of joy…oh but what if I just cant sustain it…what if I slip up..shit its just too damn hard..this world..these people…Oh this mind of mine….

Where to start? So many techniques to try out and it can be overwhelming but just make the decision and let the universe do the rest.  Is it that simple? Seriously…

I’m gonna start by naming some of the amazing brain training techniques that I have encountered on my  journey to being a happier human being.

Top one of course is Meditation – and there is so many different ones to choose from and one size doesn’t fit all.  I find Mindfulness is more of a day to day training that can be used during our busy life’s.  Sitting at traffic lights or doing the dishes and being totally mindful of the present moment.

I also love a guided meditation and sometimes just some nice music and a bit of quiet time.

John Kabat Zinn and Eckhart Tolle are two of my top re read books at my bedside and I highly recommend them.

Next is Dr Joe Dispenza –   Joe Dispenza, D.C., first caught the public’s eye as one of the scientists featured in the award-winning film What the BLEEP Do We Know!? Since that movie’s release in 2004, his work has expanded, deepened, and spiraled in several key directions—all of which reflect his passion for exploring how people can use the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience and quantum physics to not only heal illness but also to enjoy a more fulfilled and happy life. Dr. Joe is driven by the conviction that each one of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities.

So I started listening to all his YouTube videos, as you do when you want to learn anything new.  Which then lead me to buying his book ” Breaking the habit of being yourself”  So I was doing his meditations for a good month or two.  I love his books but I would say that his meditations are just a little too long for me.  I did them for a good few months and can see how they would work but I have found other ones that I like more now so I will continue to dip in and out of his work.

But before I found out about him I bought Dr Bruce Liptons book  “The Biology of Belief”  This guy tells you all about how your beliefs can alter your cells.  I must admit at the time of reading this book I wasn’t really terribly conscious so a lot of it went over my head, so I dipped back into it recently and I can say I get it a lot more now.  I do love to listen to him on youtube.  He is promoting PSYCH-K technique,

quote-just-like-a-single-cell-the-character-of-our-lives-is-determined-not-by-our-genes-but-bruce-h-lipton-75-2-0225

Civilization, as we know it, is  in the process of making a monumental shift in human consciousness of which we are all playing a part, consciously and subconsciously. Every aspect of our lives, both personal and professional, is being profoundly affected. Using PSYCH-K®, you can help to positively direct this change. PSYCH-K allows you to quickly and painlessly change subconscious beliefs that are limiting the full expression of your potential in life, as a spiritual being having a human experience. This includes your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

I love this quote — “When you rewrite the software of your mind, you change the printout of your life… and the world!”

Next Technique is The Havening Technique – This one is amazing and a bit like..WTF…how does that sh*t work…

The Havening techniques described herein are based in evolutionary biology and offer you the opportunity to live a healthier, hopefully happier and more productive life. To Western eyes, to watch pain instantly disappear, long standing psychological problems resolve and disturbing memories fade into the irretrievable past is nothing short of astonishing.

We call this method Havening. Havening, the transitive verb of the word haven, means to put into a safe place. While some forms of this approach have been around for decades, many mental health professionals remain skeptical given that it involves no medication, talking or prolonged exposure

So the most famous Hypnotist ever – Paul McKenna – Is promoting this one.  And I have done a few of his books with success so why not give it a go.  You can check out this technique for free on YouTube and its very easy and it does work so give it a go.

TFT, EFT, HYPNOSIS, MEDITATION PSYCH – K AND SO MANY MORE TECHNIQUES OUT THERE TO IMPROVE US AS HUMAN BEINGS FROM THE INSIDE OUT.  LET US ALL WORK ON OURSELVES TO MAKE US HAPPIER, CALMER MORE JOYFUL COMPASSIONATE HUMAN BEINGS..IF NOT FOR OURSELVES BUT FOR OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY..JUST SPREAD THAT JOY ALL AROUND THE PLACE.  WHATEVER WE PUT OUT THERE HAS GOTTA COME BACK..IT IS THE LAW AFTER ALL.
