FELICITY BUTLER: “Pranic Breathing — Feed Your Energy Body With Light”

We all have an energy body which is a replica of our physical body. It is extremely important to our health and well-being, especially as we move up into the higher frequencies to nurture and feed this energy body. This body can be called our pranic body or etheric body.

The pranic body feeds our energy centers, i.e., chakras, which are spinning vortex gateways that bring in the life-force energy. The chakras are all connected to our endocrine system, which controls the various very important functions of our body.

You can practice very simple visualization/meditation techniques to make sure you are receiving enough chi/life force in your energy system.

I like to do these exercises while walking in nature, and found them very healing when I was going through a traumatic event in my life. If you are near trees you can intentionally bring in their energy, or if you are by water bring in energy from the water. Water is our emotional body. I also visualize bringing the cosmic light down into the earth with each step, and send the earth energy up into the cosmos, creating a rainbow bridge.

The 4 different stages of the pranic breathing technique

Practice each one until you feel comfortable with it.

1. Firstly, imagine you have a hollow tube that is as wide as a circle you can create by placing your thumb and index finger together, like an OK sign. The tube runs from the top of your head to the base of your spine, but you can also extend it up into the universe and down into the center of the earth. On your first inhale imagine bringing up pranic energy from the earth into the hollow tube, hold for a few seconds and then release with a sigh. On the second inhalation imagine bringing in pranic cosmic energy from the Universe, hold for a few seconds and then release with a sign. Practice until you can feel this energy.

2. Carry on as above, only this time as you hold your breath for a few seconds keep your attention on the pranic tube as you exhale with a sigh. On your inhale from the cosmos, hold breath for a second or two while focusing on the pranic tube, then when you release take your attention to your whole physical body. Energy flows where the intention goes. Keep practicing until you can feel a flow of energy from your pranic tube to you whole body.

3. Bring your awareness to your heart chakra, center of your chest, bring yourself into a state of love and gratitude, make sure you can feel this. When you can sense this feeling strongly inhale drawing the prana from the earth into your heart space. Suspend your breath for a while as you focus on your heart chakra, still holding the feeling of love and gratitude. When you let go of your breath move your awareness from your heart into your physical body and allow the now ‘charged’ prana to expand into your whole body.

4. Bring your awareness to your heart chakra. Bring earth prana and cosmic prana simultaneously into the heart center, then exhale.

Imagine that you can feel both the cosmic and earth energies entering you heart chakra with every breath. Visualize your heart chakra expanding with each breath until it fills your whole chest.

Meditate on your expanded heart center, balancing your whole being.

DAVINA SKINNER: “7 Chakras And 7 Links To Your Subconscious”

The Chakras do not start and end with their description or definition — which is where many people stop with their understanding of them. To know their name and position is great but what purpose does that serve? What use is that information to you in your daily life? The Chakras are amazing, organic, Dimensional Centers of Energy and within them they hold so many secrets.

When their energy is combined, it makes up what we call the Aura, the energy field within and around the human body. It is within this energy sphere that psychics can ‘see’ and can discern many things about you that the ‘normal’ person is not consciously aware of.

Many of these things you can become more conscious of yourself and to my mind it is your subconscious mind giving you some minute signals, trying to get through to you. This is just the same and linked with how your body language works, your body language is your Chakra energy at work!

There are a great many ways that the Chakras can try to ‘get’ your attention, often by being out of balance. Again there are a whole host of symptoms that would indicate an out of balance Chakra but for the purpose of trying to keep things simple I highlight just one common signal for each of the seven Chakras. For Example;

The Base Chakra

A good indicator of how stable the Base Chakra might be is to consider what you do with your feet and legs when you sit down in certain situations: You may sit with both feet firmly placed on the floor or you may occasionally cross your legs. In and of itself, there is no great indicator here unless there tends to be a regular and repeated pattern. You may find you often cross your legs tightly, almost winding them around the chair leg, or you may fidget excessively, you may feel the need to raise your feet up off the floor and in some cases sit with your knees bent up in front of you. This can indicate a sense of insecurity which is one of the key elements of the Base Chakra.

The Sacral Chakra

You may notice you often cover this area, below the navel with your hands; this tends to be out of an instinctive need to feel protected. It can be an area that is easily prone to storing fat, in men and women and is linked with how vulnerable you feel in relationships in particular. It is an emotional power house and it is important to be able to ‘flow’ with these emotions otherwise you may encounter creativity problems not just physically but mentally too.

The Solar Plexus

This Chakra you already associate with your subconscious or inner knowing whether you realize it or not! This is after all the home of your GUT instinct. It is not for no reason we call it this. This Chakra directly links with your core spirit or energy that instinctively ‘knows’ what or who is good for you and which situations are bad. Recall a time when you had a bad feeling about someone or something and you will no doubt recall that sickening feeling in the stomach. Often things happen so quickly that we don’t stop to consider just what our reactions are about or precisely where they affect us in the body.

The Heart Chakra

This, it is no surprise is all about love. How comforting is it when you feel hurt or upset to receive a loving or caring hug from someone? It is a natural instinct to put your arms around each other and to ‘touch’ hearts. It is a comfort and is in effect two energies of the two people meeting, one giving one receiving in this instance. To watch anyone in pain tugs at your ‘heart strings’ and that is just what it is like if you could see the energy.

The Throat Chakra

This Chakra not only relates to the throat and neck area but to the organs you use in communication too, your ears, mouth and nose! It is very often associated with your ability to ‘speak your truth’. You may know someone who covers their neck and throat area regularly, either with high collars or scarves. This can indicate that a lot of what they would really like to say is left unsaid or is covered up. This can either result in resentful gossip out of earshot or a build up of ‘unsaid stuff’ that at some point bursts forth in an emotional storm!

The Third Eye Chakra

Often you will see people rub or tap this area as if trying to literally grab hold of a thought they somehow know is there but they just can’t quite get hold of. This is the intuitive Chakra center of the mind and it can easily be pulled ‘out of sync’ by the logical, rational, conscious mind we use for a large part of the day. As you may have noticed, when you let go of chasing that illusive thought and get on with an unrelated task, the inspiration or information seems to magically come from nowhere!

The Crown Chakra

Excessive worry can indicate itself here in a physical way. One of the most common is when you see people holding their head in their hands in despair or deep concern; when they ‘just don’t know what to do’ or can’t see the answer to a certain predicament. They may feel totally blocked in being able to see a way forward and keep their head looking downwards.

The majority of the instances above directly link to your body language. But when you look deeper and start to reveal more about the Chakras and their links to your mental and emotional wellbeing as well as your physical and spiritual wellbeing then you start to get a more holistic view of your true potential and beauty as a human spirit.

DEBORAH KING: “7 Tips To Buff Up Your Chakra System”

one-animated-chakras-pretty.gif

Energy medicine promotes healing by working within an individual’s personal energetic field and seeing how it interacts with the larger energy field.  We can tell what’s happening with someone by checking in on their 7 main chakras, the centers of energy that run from the base of the spine up through the top of the head.

These 7 centers, along with up to 20 smaller chakras, govern our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.  In other words, chakras hold the secrets to how you feel about yourself and your world, how you get along with others, the condition of your body, your relationship to money, whether or not weight is a problem, how you make decisions, and your spiritual advancement.

That’s a lot to ask of something most people can’t see.  But then again, we can’t see the radioactive particles released from a damaged nuclear reactor either, and yet we take seriously their capability to affect our lives.  The energy centered in the chakras has a very profound effect on our lives.

So what can you do to create and maintain healthy and balanced chakras?  Here are seven sure-fire simple steps you can take to balance your chakras:

1. Connect to Mother Earth: Take a Walk in Nature.

The first chakra is your Root Chakra and is the very foundation of physical and emotional health.  It is your basic connection to Mother Earth — the roots you plant in the soil of your being.  This is where your physical strength lies, and the psychological strength to withstand whatever you have to deal with.

A simple walk barefoot on grass or a sandy beach will do wonders to ground you.  Hug a tree, go hiking in the wilderness, or visit a local park.  You don’t have to live in the countryside or mountains to strengthen this connection with Mother Nature.  Grounding yourself will give you the experience of  “I am here, and I am safe”  and this presence is so essential to your health.  Take time out of your day to make sure you make this connection and you will automatically strengthen your Root Chakra.

2. Calm your Body and Environment with Water.

The second chakra is the seat of sensuality, sexuality, emotion, and the inner child.  It governs how we relate in groups, how we establish inner and outer boundaries, and how we find pleasure.  A common problem related to the second chakra is addition.  You may be using drugs, alcohol, pills, food, smoking, exercise, or sex as ways to avoid dealing with your emotions, to numb yourself.  The physical problems of a poorly functioning second chakra are often the kinds of things that breed shame if the health issues concern their sexuality.  One way to heal the shame is to soak for at least 20 minutes in a bath of warm water with one pound each of sea salt and baking soda.  Imagine all your guilt and shame dissolving in the bath water and being washed away as you say: “I speak the truth and reclaim my true nature.  I am pure.  I am clean.”  Water is healing, and immersing yourself in water on a regular basis is a self-nurturing habit.

3. Get Moving!

The second chakra is the seat of our self-worth — our self esteem, will power, and personal power.  It is the seat of our mental body, where we identify with our ego and our individuality.  A strong will means we know what our goals are and have an idea of what we want to do.  The power in the third chakra is our right to act, to use our will, to follow through with what we start, to meet challenges head-on, and to not be stopped by fear.  You can balance your third chakra through physical movement, especially outside in the sun in the early morning or before sunset.  Don’t get too warm if you tend to be angry or short-tempered!  Physical movement awakens and recharges your body.  You can also try T’ai Chi, Yoga, or Pilates!

4. Love a Pet!

The fourth chakra is your heart chakra and it is the center point, where you merge the strength and support of Mother Earth from below with the wisdom and guidance from above that combine to make you a compassionate human being.  A poorly functioning fourth chakra can keep you in bondage to emotional attachment.  It is through your heart chakra that you can come to feel the presence of unconditional, unlimited love — for your self, for all beings, for the world and beyond.  One of the best ways to boost your heart chakra is through giving and receiving love with a pet.  Our pets love us unconditionally and make it safe for us to learn to love again.  Do you have room in your life to adopt a dog or cat?  You can feed your heart chakra and at the same time change this animal’s life forever in a positive way.  No room or time to adopt your own?  What about visiting your local shelter or even just visiting a friend’s friendly pet and sharing some love with them?

5. Express Yourself: Use your Voice.

The fifth chakra is our center of creativity.  This chakra is where we express our choices and communicate who we are.  Because our use of sound and communication purifies our lower selves and allows us to experience the higher vibrations of spirit, we can tune up our fifth chakra by expressing ourselves more clearly and exploring our creativity.  All creativity is a way to communicate what we feel.  Use your voice and read out loud your favorite book or poem.  Write something yourself and recite it!  Sing a song — in the shower, in your car wherever!  When your fifth chakra is in balance, you can live your dreams and visions, your greater purpose.  Let yourself be who you are and give yourself a voice!

6. Visualize and Find your Inner Sight.

The sixth chakra, or “third eye”, is the center of higher intellect.  The gifts of the spirit emerge in this chakra, like clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition, and psychokinesis.  You can boost this chakra by working to rid yourself of the clutter in your mind so you can “see” more clearly.  Daily meditation is a wonderful way to get rid of old beliefs and thought patterns that are holding you back.  When you have awakened the sixth chakra, you are in touch with inspiration, insight, wisdom, and vision.

7. Invite the Divine!

The seventh chakra, or crown chakra, connects us to spirit, our higher power, and the universe.  It lights up our consciousness. When our crown chakra is open, our perception is clearer, broader, and we are allowed to not only see our daily patterns, but also the deep metaphysical patterns of our lives.  Like the sixth chakra, meditation is a powerful tool to boosting this chakra.  Perhaps prayer or communion with nature will assist you as well.  Ask your own higher wisdom for guidance and signs that you are on the right path, and make time for yourself to listen for internal messages regarding purpose and direction.  Visualize positive and peaceful outcomes.  The truth that emerges will open the door for you to greater levels of connection.

Your chakras are all interconnected.  They embrace you as a whole person.  As you do the inner work of clearing and releasing past traumas, negativity and outmoded belief systems, you will lighten the load of your chakras.  Your energy will move into greater balance, and as a result, you will feel better.  So why not take the initiative and seek out ways to better balance your chakras?

HANNES HAUSLER: “The 12-Chakra System And The Twinflame Process”

twin-flame-chakras-2

“Basically it is two people meeting, who do have a very similar or even the same base frequency of soul, which enables their souls to melt into one another.  These encounters are very intense.  You will be facing your greatest mirror, which will reflect all of your aspects, including your shadow and light aspects.  With this person, you can go through heaven and through hell.”

 ~Hannes Häusler

 

 

Are you feeling intense energies in these days?  Stomach cramping, pain, dizziness, tiredness and even fear of death can all be symptoms of you birthing the new chakra template.  For a few years now, there is more and more children being born with new chakras.  Some have 8, others have 13.  The template however is 12 Chakras.  The twelve-chakra system is the new/old template for human beings on earth.  Just as the frequency of mother earth will be raised from 7,83hz to 12-13hz, so will our chakra-system advance from a 7-Chakra-System to a 12-Chakra-System, which provides us with abilities to understand the higher frequencies, which are manifesting on earth right now.  Actually we have had these chakras in ancient times, when our consciousness was more advanced.  Now we are getting it back.

These chakras are not, as generally believed, above our other chakras, but rather they come into our “old” 7-Chakra-System and fill in the gaps, provide us with what we need at the moment. Their base function is adaptogenic, which means that they will adapt to your energetic environment and its needs. It will support our weaknesses as well as fuel our strengths.  Lets say, for instance, your life task lies within communication, you are either an author or a public speaker or something else related to communication, then you will most probably manifest a chakra close to your throat-chakra to support you in your communication processes.  Or lets assume, you have neglected your solar-plexus chakra for a while, meaning that you cannot really find a way to manifest yourself within society or you are scared to reveal your true self. In this case, you will more than likely manifest a chakra that is close to your plexus, which will help you to achieve your divine manifestation.  As stated above, the new template is that of 12 Chakras, but nevertheless the process is individual and solely depends on you and your needs and intentions.  The only thing, which is not predestined, is how far you will go, how many chakras you will activate throughout your lifetime.  The general templating process depends on how much you can integrate and change your understanding about the world.  When new energies are trying to manifest within us, this often entails that our old structures will ripple and tumble down.  So adapting to these energetic processes means that you will slowly let go of all your previous belief systems which were to some extent limiting or preventing you from reaching your highest potential.  This means, you will go back into your childhood and remove all traumas, which you have gone through either physically or mentally. The  key  to this process is allowance and acceptance.

What are some of the symptoms?

As was said above, the process to activating the new chakra-system within yourself necessitates that you are releasing all of the false belief systems and pains, which are keeping you locked in the average robotic mind-boggling of the modern human being.  Thus this process can be very painful and emotionally demanding, for releasing means that it brings all those aspects of yourself to the surface, which you have been trying to suppress up till now.  So as long as you let yourself act out everything which wants to be brought to light within your consciousness, you are on the right track.  Do not hesitate just because you think these emotions and thoughts are childish.  Just take a look at society, everything is based on this one childish, premature belief that we have to be better than others.  And thus this attitude will also prevent you from activating the new chakra-template within yourself.  The core is not developing the new chakra-system, but rather to expand your consciousness beyond what is perceived by the monkey mind.  Activating new chakras within yourself does not mean that you are better than others, who have not activated them yet.  It means that you have become a facilitator for others, it means that it is your duty to pass on to others these energetic imprints, to pass on your understandings which you have gained during this process.

Near-Death-Experiences are natural

Many people will have what we generally call Near Death Experiences while going through this process.  This is logical, for as something new is born, something old must die.  We can die physically, but also mentally, emotionally, psychically and spiritually and what more there is.  These are the basic 5 energy bodies, that make up the human spirit, so the physical, emotional, mental, psychic and spiritual body.

Freeing up the energies in the twinflame-process

Usually people, who are activating and integrating these higher energies, are having very intense encounters with the opposite sex or simply their opposite energetic imprint.  Lets call it twinflames, soul mates and there is a lot of other names and labels given to this phenomenon.  Basically it is two people meeting, who do have a very similar or even the same base frequency of soul, which enables their souls to melt into one another.  These encounters are very intense.  You will be facing your greatest mirror, which will reflect all of your aspects, including your shadow and light aspects.  With this person, you can go through heaven and through hell.  All of a sudden there will be vast changes within all the areas of your life.  This encounter affects all of the energy bodies and it releases all of the false imprints that we have allowed to manifest within ourselves.  The emotional body is the hardest to convince of the fact, that this process is positive for our development, for it holds all of the pains and belief systems, that have so far kept us in a protective energetic layer, preventing us from reaching the deeper, more painful (or not) layers of our personality, basically your highest potential.

Together with your twinflame, you are beginning to set free new energies, one after the other.  Basically it never comes to a halt.  According to our experiences, we have seen but a few people, except the children, who are going through this process of higher chakra activation by themselves.  Usually it is in connection with their twinflame.  Twin flames basically have a common aura, which makes it much easier to create the new energy system for there is much more space to create.  In our readings we take the new chakras as a true twinflame sign or an expansion of one’s consciousness through either entheogenic plants or deep meditative journeys.

Before a new chakra is being born, it usually channels all of the energies of the other chakras into its location in order to create enough energetic impulse to birth itself.  This can be very painful, some people get cramps in the stomach or other places of the body, depending on the location of the new chakra. Itching, piercing and burdensome feelings in one particular area are very usual symptoms.  Also people will start to feel really tired as this process is taking up a lot of energies and you need to rest in order to keep up with the process.

It is a process of moving closer into union with yourself.  The union with your twinflame mirrors the union with yourself.  Energetically you and your twinflame will reestablish the primordial connection to source.

The energies enable you to faster create your own Merkaba, energy body or whatever you want to call it, so to facilitate it for your to travel, see, feel, touch and move through other dimensional spaces, for you to recognize your multidimensional being, to create a space for your soul to grow and express itself.

What does the 12-Chakra-System look like?

Throughout the development within the twin flame partnership, the twins will get, each time they could raise their frequency and understanding, a new chakra added to their energy-system.  All of these 5 (or more) additional chakras serve higher purposes.  Starting on the bottom there is the 8th chakra, which is located between the solar plexus- and the heart chakra.  This chakra serves as an amplifier for divine manifestation and creation.  It helps to channel energies and stimulates the whole energy system of the body.  It is there to guide you in expressing yourself.  It brings the urge of establishing yourself within society up into the heart arena, so that all of your creations radiate from your heart, that you can only follow a path, job, life mission, which is in accordance with your heart chakra.  The 8th chakra is the mediator between the heart and the plexus.

Going one up is the 9th chakra.  Actually the order in which these chakras will be activated is not always the same (and they are not always the same).  While some will start with activating the 12th or the 9th, then others will start with the 8th.  So the 9th chakra is located between the heart-chakra and the throat-chakra. T his chakra helps us to better understand the multidimensional aspect of everything.  It increases our awareness of other dimensions, so symptoms of it being activated again could be hearing strange noises and frequencies, sometimes also seeing things moving about your visual field. With this chakra we can travel back and forth in time and for instance change our perspective on past traumas or other deep childhood memories.  The 9th chakra is a mediator for the heart and the throat chakra.  It brings our communication back into our center, our core, our essence, the heart.  It helps us to understand the wordless communication of the soul.

The next chakra, the 10th chakra can be found on the back of the head, where the neuroscientists have located the visual field.  This chakra is dealing with imagination.  When it opens you start to see a lot of images that lighten up your thoughts.  Everything gets very vivid, while emotions will be experienced in another intensity.  It generally has to do with memories.  The process to open this one, is one of the most painful, because it brings back all of your traumatic or painful experiences, which you have transferred and cemented into belief systems.  But it also brings you back to your primordial memories, the memories of your soul, of your source.  So it always is just a matter of perspective, you are the one through the looking glass, you can either see your experiences as being a burden for your spirit or a challenge and a possibility for you to step up and face yourself, breed your consciousness to the next level.

Going two more up, we will find the 11th and the 12th chakras just above the two brain hemispheres, in its middle resides the crown chakra.  These chakras catalyse and harmonize the feminine and masculine energies of the human body.  Together they will connect with the crown chakra and actually all other chakras and make a balance between the two brain hemispheres.  They channel divine inspiration and can help to energetically understand the unity in duality.  Uniting these two energies is the same process that you have been going through with your twinflame, now its within you.

The whole process of activating and opening these chakras is like a birthing process, where in the end it will help the soul to better express itself to the mind, so that one can find unity and understanding.  It raises our intentions to follow the divine purpose.  Of course the human energy field can have even more than just 12 chakras, but this 12-Chakra-System is the first step for us to evolve as spiritual beings.

This is the general template of the ancient/new 12-Chakra-System.  As was stated above, the process of the activation of your higher chakras is not always the same and some people might have chakras in very strange areas, but those will always serve them individually.

Other Chakras diverging from the Template

We are working as twinflame healers already since a couple of years.  Edina, my twinflame, can read the aura since she is a child, but only since we have met, have we begun to develop and deepen our abilities of seeing, feeling and working with energies.

So we have seen other chakras appearing on different locations, of which one is on the back of the body at the height of the sex-chakra.  This chakra was by far the biggest that we have seen and it is build up like a clock with 12 tinier chakras on each hour-scale.  The function of this chakra is like a motor.  It stirs up the whole energy system, catalysing and boosting all other chakras.  It is an addition to the sex-chakra, which is the seat of our life-force energy, our sexual energy, our kundalini flow.

Also we have seen a new chakra popping up at the back of the neck.  This chakra especially serves communication and as was said in the beginning can help those, who have their job or mission in the arena of writing, speaking and teaching.  This chakra together with the motor chakra builds up a pyramid through the assemblage point, which is another very important energetic feature of our energy system.  The assemblage point guards and controls our perceptions.  So this connection can help us to shift our perception of how we generally communicate and of how to use our sexual energy (motor chakra).  Sexual energy is the main force which constitutes and builds up our dream awareness.  Lucid dreaming solely depends on our sexual capacities, but this is yet another topic, which will be spared for yet another article.

We have also seen people who had an additional root chakra.  Their task is one of designing homes, of creating the trust and root within oneself, the earth and the universe.  These people are usually very grounded and they can bring their instincts to the next level, to connect it with their intuitions and channeled thoughts, which brings us to the next deviant chakra.

This is located just above the third-eye chakra and actually it is two chakras.  The first chakra is emitting turquoise energy, while the upper one has some kind of rainbow-colored energy transmission.  At one point they will start to fuse with the third-eye-chakra, which results in the amplification of the intuitive processes altogether.  People activating this chakra will be much more capable to filter out the truth behind everything.  These chakras help us to see the human aura and other dimensions in general.

Of course there is even more chakras appearing elsewhere.  It depends on you, you are the architect, the builder, you create your own energy system, so be creative!

MICHAEL FORRESTER: “7 Ways to Trigger the Heart Field — The Most Powerful Healing Force There Is”

Heart Chakra.jpg

Every cause of disease first begins with an imbalance in the body’s energy systems, specifically, the interaction between how the heart communicates with the brain and the body. Fix that and there is no disease, ever. The heart can produce an electrical field 100 times greater than the brain and a magnetic field 5000 times greater. Which one are you using to heal?

Emotions are vibrations which influence consistently our reality. We not only think and work our way through a day, meeting, assignment, but also feel and believe our way through it. The outcome depends on both.

Simply put, the number one cause of health is your energetic and emotional state. How you connect emotionally to your overall wellness and wellbeing is more important than any supplement, food, exercise or health treatment. There is only one cause of disease and that has to do with the energy and frequency imbalances that exist within your body. Rectify that, and disease cannot exist… it would be impossible.

All the emotions are varieties of two: fear and love: Fear/stress is contagious and causes contraction: inhibits creativity, brain activity, inhibits the immune system, selective perception and over extensive periods of time leads to breakdown. Love (positive beliefs and emotions) has high impact and causes expansion: creativity, physical and mental endurance, more productivity in shorter time because we take decisions quicker because we are receptive and highly perceptive. This a question of Math, HeartMath (as per the contribution in this field of the HeartMath Institute): when one has accurate information, takes better decisions.

The quality of the field one creates with his heart influences his experience and reality.

The research behind the evolution of HeartMath came from the idea that the body’s emotional response to events do not always occur from “top-down” processing (i.e., the brain sends signals to the heart and other organs, and the body responds accordingly). Rather, it has now proven that often times our emotional state triggers our heart to send out its own signals to the brain and other organs, and the body then responds accordingly. For instance, while two-way communication between the cognitive and emotional systems is hard-wired into the brain, the actual number of neural connections going from the emotional centers to the cognitive centers is greater than the number going the other way. Have you ever: Made a “rash” decision? Done something dangerous on impulse? Taken a risk because you believed in it? This research helps explain the influence emotions have on our ability to think and act.

In fact, researchers at HeartMath have determined that the physiology and nerve centers of the heart are so complex and active, that they constitute a “brain” all on their own, termed a “mini-brain.” We now know that the heart contains cells that produce and release norepinephrine and dopamine, neurotransmitters once thought to be produced only by the brain and ganglia outside the heart. Even more remarkable is the discovery that the heart produces oxytocin -the “love hormone” – in concentrations that are as high as those in the brain.

 

7 Simple actions to create positive feelings:

 

1. Think about the colleagues who helped you today.  Thank them in your heart. Think about your current assignments. Know that they will work out well and work from this space.

2. What is it that you would like to have professionally?  A new project? With whom? Think about it in detail, be specific and imagine you are already working on it.

3. Entertain the feeling of celebration that arises in your heart.  From this space take the appropriate actions to make it happen.

4. Find ways to help your colleagues, or make them feel that you care.  Do one (in)visible act of kindness per day or more if you want to

5. Before starting your work day give thanks and envision it the way you want it to be.

6. When finishing your work day give thanks and clear it of negative emotions (which come out of fear that we know now is illusion).  Do not take them at home or preserve for the next day.

7. Smile – The time of crisis is literally here: there is the fast pace of our world, the assault of too much to do with too little time and resources. Being in the present moment is just a concept for most of us and has little translation to daily life practice. Fear is wide spread and is polluting us on a very cellular level: hypertension, autoimmune diseases, cancer, infertility, chronic back problems, anxiety, and depression; the list could continue forever. The difference is how we interpret crisis because we can be at complete peace in the midst of chaos.

 

Can we live the life we want? Can we be authentic in our speech? Can we identify and release our underlying limiting beliefs so that we begin a new commitment towards genuine compassion, abundance, love and connection? Your commitment will show in your body and intentions.
