Learn to get to the root cause of your sickness.
When I guide people, I find that there is a range of understandings about the chakra system, which is an energetic system that runs along the spinal cord area, that governs 7 energetic frequency points in our bodies. When we speak of wanting “balance” in our lives, it is usually because we are living an out-of-balance experience in one or more of the 7 chakra areas.
In the past 3 months, I have worked with multiple people through teaching and coaching that have expressed an incessant pain or even blockage that they have been unable to shake. Intuitively, I am asked to look closer toward the core of where this physical ailment manifested. Inevitably, the results tie directly to a chakra area that was/is holding stress or trauma from a life experience that was not provided the opportunity to process through (yet). The most common, easily felt and medically treated area of blockage is the heart. The United States of America is experiencing an all time high amount of people suffering from Anxiety. Anxiety is directly connected to the heart and the gut. Anxiety exists because the mind has taken ultimate control over the story in the person’s life about what is or is not working out to his/her satisfaction. And after the mind decides, the body must deal. The heart learns to close down the shop, rather than allowing the information to process through to generate feelings which can assess and decide if what she has been thinking about (in the brain) is actually reasonable.
The same goes with every other chakra area. One that is afraid to look ahead at the future because today has been dealt a hand of cards that feels painful, may manifest physical symptoms which actually cause the body more difficulty to think and see clearly.
Each Chakra area governs different portions of the physical body and the emotional body. It is important to understand that when we are given the blessing of learning more about our temples that God gave to us, we can have more responsible, healing control over them. In essence, WE ARE THE HEALERS WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!

For example, if the heart feels heavy or tight, where you would normally envision your breath to be taken in, which is airways of your nose and mouth (which will be remain your sources of inhaling air for breath), now you will envision breathing all of that air into your corroded chakra area, in the case the heart, and exhale in the same place.
