In this week's podcast Mary Sidhwani, PhD talks about #healing from anything that shakes us to the core. In her case it was a an unexpected diagnosis. The heart #chakra is the energetic center that connects our upper, more spiritual energies with our lower, more grounded energies and allows us to transmute stress, fear, anxiety, anger and other negative emotions to higher vibrations of love, joy and #peace. Working with the energies of the heart can transform any situation into an opportunity for growth, expansion and #awakening to a more spiritual reality. Simply sitting and breathing into the area of the heart is a really good start. #Yoga poses like camel, cobra and forward fold, combined with breath can help as well. Taking time to visualize healing light (green or pink are the colors associated with this chakra) flowing all around the area of the heart can be very soothing to the body-mind. #Forgiveness, #gratitude and #love are other exercises that will strengthen this vital energy center and help you move through challenging times with grace and ease.
