Psychology of the Chakras

Chakra* work is meaningful and incredibly powerful, because it delivers us insights and information we may not notice in the physical realm.  The alchemical process we go through when looking at ourselves through the psychology of the chakras is unique and offers us tangible opportunities for change.  Each one of us has a vibrant, pulsating and colorful inner world longing for attention, to be seen, heard, and given expression.

This approach is important for each of us, regardless of age, background or life issues, because it highlights for us what is actually happening inward and we become a more honest witness to our own energy.  Often we struggle to make sense of some pattern or problem in our life and cannot really understand it.  When we approach ourselves through the psychology of the chakras, we can relate more easily to the energetic blockages, self-destructive behaviors and negative patterns that stand in our way and from that place bring new vitality into our system.   

*Chakras are vortexes of energy that run through the top of the head to the root of the spine. There are 7 points in the body that correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being. 

Meditation

"When mind knows, we call it knowledge.

When heart knows, we call it love.

And, when being knows, we call it meditation." ~OSHO 

Meditation is a key factor for self-reflection, awareness, release and integration. Often, when we go through very deep processes or life events without a meditation component, we may find ourselves more confused than when we started. Meditation allows us to be present with all that is and all that isn’t.  Meditation serves as the link between what we understand externally to how we understand and digest it internally and is a path toward knowing ourselves better. Taking this time to be intimate with ourselves is an endless gift of self-love. 

  • Experience full presence and awareness, right here, right now.

  • Dedicate time to be intimate with yourself for self-reflection, integration and letting go.

  • Complement any emotional process or daily life activities through a large variety of meditations.

  • Create an inner support system for yourself.

  • Invite the quality of meditation to permeate in all areas of your life.

  • Pinpoint which meditation techniques are most meaningful for you.

As a meditator myself, I feel it is crucial to include meditation techniques in my work with people.  I feel blessed to have hundreds of meditations at my fingertips deriving from the glorious world of OSHO’s active and passive meditations, Guided Imagery, Tibetan Buddhism, Sufism, and Ho’oponopono.
