#Happiness by #Chakra


This post is authored by Carolyn Myss. She offers her profound insight for those of you actively seeking ways to become happier people.

Just for fun, I used the chakra system as a map, charting the soul’s requirements for engaging with this organic force of Nature that we have named, “Happiness.” That is, if we could ask the soul, “What does the soul require us to know or to do in order to create a happy life?”– these are answers that might just work.

First/Tribal Chakra:
This is your tribal center that represents your connection to physical life as well as to the Earth itself. This is the chakra through which you are connected to the laws of Nature and to its cycles and rhythms. You are a part of this ecosystem. In order to thrive, you need to live in harmony with Nature’s ecosystem. You need to plant seeds, symbolically speaking. You need to stick your hands in the Earth and connect to the life force. You need to be rooted in something that matters. You need to be part of a community of people, a community of life. You need to matter to this community and find people who matter to you. You cannot define “meaningful” relationships only by those that are romantic. Life is filled with meaningful relationships of all kinds. You need to contribute to the living community that you are a part of on this Earth.

Second/Relationship Chakra:
This is your center of relationships and creativity, as well as values such as integrity and loyalty. Knowing your values, then, becomes an essential ingredient for creating a happy life. You need to be in relationships with others. Friends, family, lovers, neighbors, community members, volunteer groups – you need people in order to thrive. No one can be alone and happy. People need people. And you need to stay creative. This means you need to feed your mind creative inspiration, like good books, film, theater, museums, and conversations. And you need creative outlets. Happiness requires expression and input. This is also your center of values. The absence of values – whatever your values are – leaves you adrift. You don’t know who you are because you don’t know what you stand for or what you believe. If you don’t know who you are or what you stand for, life will terrify you. You will never be able to count on yourself, much less anyone else. You have to know what you believe in and what you stand for in life.

Third/Self Chakra:
This is your ego center. Happiness is built on healthy self-esteem. The shadow side of self-esteem is narcissism, a life that’s “all about you.” If you are serious about creating a happy and healthy life, then raise the bar on what you expect from yourself in terms of how you live. Decide to live the congruent life: walk the way you talk. Become a person who does her/his best to live without contradictions, keeps her word, and doesn’t betray others or lie. Such a personal code of integrity, I assure you, will improve your chances of creating a happy life because you will find you hurt people a lot less. You will discover that living at this altitude of consciousness requires that you are extremely mindful of what you say and do – and that quality of consciousness is exactly the type of thoughtfulness that creates the refined harmony we have named “happiness.”

Fourth/Heart Chakra:
Clean out your heart center. Start fresh. If you want to be happy, reboot. Carrying baggage and repeating your wounded stories again and again – and again – is self-destructive. Punishing others for your bad days and unhappy childhood is cruel – although many find it useful as a control mechanism. If you want a happy life with someone, or just yourself, clean out your heart center. Get up tomorrow morning and fall madly in love with your life, or at least something about your life.

I told a woman to do this one time and she said she hated her life and everything in it. She said she could not imagine falling madly in love with her life. The idea, she said, was preposterous. I got that. So I told her to imagine that she was dying, that she had just been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given two months. She really got into this exercise. After a bit, I asked her, “Did you give in to the diagnosis or did you fight it? Did you want to live or die?” She started to cry, admitting she wanted to live. Indeed, she said, she would have fought with all her might to stay alive, even in her dire situation. We discussed that feeling – this desire to fight to stay alive even in her dismal situation – and she said, “I can’t explain it but I felt as if grace itself was talking to me, telling me to hang on because the situation was only temporary. I know we were just doing an exercise, but I think that grace really spoke to me.” Absolutely it did.

Happiness is about cleaning out your heart and nurturing the graces that matter: hope, love, and forgiveness. Let the past go. And don’t be shy about telling others you love them or that you are sorry for something. You may not have a second chance.

Fifth/Will Chakra:
Make important choices when you need to make them. Have the courage to be spontaneous. Do not let others make choices for you that you have to live with. Speak up. Remember that you are an adult. Children living in adult bodies never find happiness – remember that. Happiness requires that adults live, walk, talk, and act like adults.

Sixth/Mental Chakra:
Do not play mind games with others or yourself. Live the truth. If you live in denial about things or if you harbor secrets, creating a happy life will not be easy. Happiness thrives on open, clean air. You can’t be happy if you are always wondering if a secret has slipped out the back door. Keep your mind in the higher altitudes. Stay out of the trash: gossip, rumor spreading, etc. Don’t dwell in fear and if fears are controlling you, then do something about that. Everyone experiences fear. Big deal. Don’t let fears control your life. They seep into your mind, and then your heart, and then your bloodstream. Imagine for a minute that you have no fear of being who you are. How does that feel? Like pure bliss, right?

Seventh/Spiritual Chakra:
Happiness requires that you have an inner theology or spirituality that can withstand the storms of life. It matters not what tradition it comes from. What matters is that your inner spiritual truth is, in fact, a genuine spiritual truth that truly nurtures you. You have to attend to your spiritual life, not just visit it when things go wrong. The Divine is not a hobby. The Sacred is in every breath of life, yours included.

Namaste!

WORDS ON LOVE TO BALANCE THE HEART CHAKRA


  • SO, WHAT IS LOVE? WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE A BALANCED HEART CHAKRA? READ THESE WORDS OF WISDOM FROM MY FACEBOOK FRIENDS….
    • Sonya Thomas “Love will make you fly, hate will make you die.”

    • Cammi Buttner Clara “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ― Rumi
    • Sharon Nicholson-Banks “LOVE is the key.”
      "LOVE is the key"
  • Vicki Tongeman Love is the absence of fear, a positive intention.
  • IndieAuthor Counsel “Love is the irresistible desire to be desired irresistibly.” – Robert Frost
  • Harriette Birnholz Knight “LOVE is our common denominator.” Harriette Knight
  • Becca Chopra From Spiritual Networks:
    “Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy.” ~ Thomas Merton
  • Pamela K Lloyd “Love is like a shadow it follows you wherever you go.”
  • Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Love is when the thought of someone clings to one’s psyche, so much so that one wants to be with that someone at every moment of one’s life.
  • Tiffani Keaton Love is an action word…for it is with doing that love is felt most fully.
  • Lynne Almeida DuGuay “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
  • Alex Solve Looking through faults to see the inner beauty.
  • Sue Diederich Knowing, feeling and sharing the Divinity within yourself and all others.
  • Angee Bartlett Love is overwhelming joy the first time you see your child or share that special moment with the person you have spent a lifetime with.
  • Elina Ov “Love is the absence of judgement” is my favorite.
  • Linda Slack Love is the ability to give without expectations of return. It is total acceptance of the other person without finding fault with them, even while recognizing that they have faults (as do we all).
  • Cecilia Bacca “To Love is to Believe.”
  • Elaine Christine “Love is all there.” Course in Miracles
  • TheChakras.org Love is wild and wonderful surrender, Love is acceptance and forgiveness, Love is compassion, Love is collaboration, Love is freedom, trust, generosity, and support, Love is abundance, Love is best when shared… Whether it is expressed through the embrace of self, a partner, or through a smile to a stranger, all varieties of love hold the ability to be healing and transformative. – your Kalani ʻohana
  • Antje Seebohm That’s the hardest and the easiest question at the same time. There are at least as many expressions of love as there are people on earth, and it’s got a different meaning for everyone. To me Love is a vibration, and if you manage to stay in that vibration at all times, if you completely embrace what is, no matter what, it’s impossible to feel fear or aggression, to live in judgement of yourself and others.
    • Terri Scott   1 John 4:18-19 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. (God Is Love) 🙂

    • Cassandra Mccann:“Love is never having to say your sorry.”

    Thanks to all my Facebook friends who shared their views of love with such wisdom and inspiration… words to truly open the heart chakra to love, compassion and forgiveness. Now, my gift of love in return to all my friends…

    PLEASE ADD YOUR COMMENTS AND IDEAS ON LOVE BELOW!

WRITING YOUR MEMOIR


Young people want to live in the future.

Older people want to live in the past.

Nobody wants to live in the present.

And where has joy placed itself?

Where has understanding placed itself?

 In the present.

Prem Rawat

Deep ThinkingUnderstanding all we have learned in life can be gelled into the present moment as you write your own memoir, as I did with Chakra Secrets.

If you have gone through life’s tough experiences and come out the other end with wisdom or inspiration to share, you may have a story to tell as well, and doing so can be cathartic to get your words out. Creativity is linked to the second or sacral chakra, which gets strengthened as you flow with the inspiration in your life. As you shout out your message to the world, even on paper, you’ll also be strengthening your throat chakra, which is linked to speaking your truth.

Writing a memoir can also get you into the “now” as you realize the past is over, and you’re in a new situation now.

Embrace today! Release yesterday!

~ Senica Evans

If you’re not up to writing a whole book, start by creating a title for your memoir. Would it announce your accomplishments, offer a way others could handle similar challenges, or simply tell the world where you started and where you’re headed?

Taking stock of what we’ve done in the past gives us a larger view, giving us the chance to really reflect on our lives, letting go and forgiving, and looking forward to using our new-found wisdom and freedom. You might even start to think about what you might do in the years ahead – and what the sequel’s title might be!

HOW TO SHARE YOUR WORDS

Start writing in your journal or sit at your computer, but just go for it. If you want to write a book for publication, perhaps join a writer’s group or take a workshop to hone your writing skills and get feedback.

Self-publishing an eBook or paperback has never been easier or more popular. To ensure your message gets presented in the best manner possible, be sure to invest in a good editor and book cover designer. I recommend my editors at www.IndieAuthorCounsel.com.

Namaste!

All I ask is that you try the simple yet powerful chakra healing tool mentioned in Part II and send me your feedback or questions, or leave a customer review on Amazon.com. So far, I’ve heard it helped one woman relieve physical pain for the first time in 2 years!

“I have had some exposure to chakras, yoga and past life experiences. Chakras seemed a little too ‘woo woo’ to me. And yoga so slow and boring. I see now that I did not a have a teacher like Becca. I simply did not understand it. In this case, it is woven into an autobiography that is as thrilling a story as a novel.” ~ Corinne Edwards, Amazon Reviewer

Why should you care about chakras anyway?

Chakras are our energy centers that affect directly influence everything from our financial security, our sex life and self esteem to how we give and receive love, express ourselves and practice spirituality.

How do you know if your chakras are in balance?

For example, if you are feeling insecure, it’s hard to have a good foundation for a relationship or profitable career, so you’ll want to strengthen your first or Root Chakra. If you feel needy, crave touch and sex and want to feel more passionate and creative, you should work on unblocking your second or Sacral Chakra.

All seven of the chakras have an impact on our lives. In CHAKRA SECRETS, I show how each of my chakras was blocked and share how I was able to move forward through chakra healing techniques that anyone can use to find love and happiness.

BALANCE YOUR CHAKRAS, BALANCE YOUR LIFE!
