What is Evolution?

“We began as a mineral.
We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again.
That’s how a young person turns toward a teacher.
That’s how a baby leans toward the breast, without knowing the secret of its desire, yet turning instinctively.
Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.”
— The Story of Evolution
Rumi, 13th Century

Chakras: Nadya's Introduction




This is the first part of an on-going series on Chakras that I just decided to do today because an overwhelming feeling of hate took hold of me and I had to do an emergency chakra cleanse. It was during the cleanse that I decided to do this post.

I've been cleansing my chakras on and off for about 2 months now with the aid of Doreen Virtue's Chakra Cleansing Book and CD and while her voice is pretty creepy it has helped me get in touch with my inner self (minds out of the gutter!)

I know what you're thinking. What the hell is a chakra (no it is not one of Elephant man's dances) and why would I spend good money on a book and CD when the internet is swimming with free information??

Believe me when I tell you that I'm a born sceptic but the thing is, I've been cultivating an interest in chakras for a good while now. I've done the internet research, I read the oppositions as well as the praise and one day I just decided that the only way to truly check if it works is to try it out. I bought the CD and book because I wanted to have the information handy whenever and wherever I needed it.

That being said, what I'm going to do here is kind of walk you through the steps that I took to get me to this point.

First off, What the hell is a chakra?

Chakra is a Sanskrit word which means circle of energy, wheel of energy, spinning vortex of energy or energetic centre. [See symbol above]

Chakras are spinning wheels of electric energy of different colors that perform many functions connecting our energy fields, bodies and the broader Cosmic Energy Field. Chakras are directly connected to and govern the endocrine system that in turn regulates the aging process.

The chakras are linking mechanisms between the auric field and the meridian system within the physical body and different levels of the auric fields and cosmic forces. They affect the flow of energy into the physical body. They absorb primary energy from the atmosphere (called chi, prana, orgone) and send it along energy channels. Chakras are energy transformers.

Our bodies contain seven major chakras or energy centers and 122 minor chakras. The major chakras are located at the base of the spine (Root Chakra), at the navel (Sacral Chakra), in the solar plexus (Solar Plexus Chakra), within your heart (Heart Chakra), within the throat (Throat Chakra), at the center of your forehead (Brow or Third Eye Chakra), and at the top of your head (Crown Chakra). These chakras are linked together.

The video below gives a concise explanation of the colours and the main functions of our chakras.




After understanding what chakras were all about I then decided to do a Chakra Test to see if my chakras needed balancing. [Click Here to do your own Chakra Test]. Of course, as suspected my sacral and throat chakras were large and my root and heart chakras were shrunken. (keep all comments to yourself :oP). That's when I decided on some DIY Chakra meditation @ home.

Stay tuned for my next posts where I give detailed information on each chakra, some DIY chakra balancing meditation as well as the progress of my chakra cleansing.

I hope this information was as useful to you as it is to me.

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
