Overview Of The 7 chakras In The Body: What Are They, And How To Know If They Are in Balance

Overview Of The 7 chakras In The Body: What Are They, And How To Know If They Are in Balance

Overview of the 7 chakras

According to the Eastern philosophy, which I follow in my health coaching practice, we require all of those seven chakras to be in balance in order to nurture and maintain physical and spiritual homeostasis.

This is is a simple overview of the chakras in our body: it serves to show you how to visualize them, and how to know if they are in balance. 

Root Chakra

Shapes our sense of security

 “I am safe, grounded and connected”-Muladhara Mantra

In the first chakra, to be aware is to be tactile. Nothing happens until it happens in the first chakra; and nothing has happened until we sense it, until we feel it in a tactile way,
until it touches us…

Learn How To Manifest Anything You Want: In 3 KEY steps

Learn How To Manifest Anything You Want: In 3 KEY steps

Reality is bendable to our intention

Thoughts are reactive to our mindset

Our mindset is prone to adaptation to our intention

Follow dance fit ideas on social media: https://www.facebook.com/dancefitnessseattle/

To manifest anything you desire, you need three fundamental tools: vision, intention and a precise goal.


Before we begin, let’s go over few facts about our brain:

  • The conscious brain perceives the past and future. The nonconscious brain has no perception of past or future; to the nonconscious brain, everything is happening NOW.
  • The conscious brain operates with a very short-term memory span, whereas the non-conscious brain remembers everything it experiences FOREVER.
  1. VISION

As writer and researcher Dawson Church says in his book Mind To Matter:  “The way we direct our awareness produces profound and immediate changes in the atoms and molecules of our bodies.”

The way you shift your consciousness predicates how you view your reality. Correspondingly, when you create the mental vision for what is it you want and need: your sub-conscious mind begins to align with that thought. 

As Albert Einstein is said to have noted, “Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one.” What that means is that for your sub-conscious mind anything you think becomes your belief system; ergo, your beliefs literally shape your consciousness. As a result, you indirectly influence your external world to match your internal emotional state of being. Isn’t it so fascinating how powerful our thoughts are? For me, it is absolutely mind-blowing (pun intended!:))

In the same manner, when you think negative thoughts and experience frequent self-doubt and feelings of undeserving of happiness, you emulate those emotions to the world. As a result, the likelihood is that you are going to pass on on an opportunity to be happy and fulfilled only because your subconscious mind is too worried that you are not capable of coping with success. Quite ironic, isn’t it, but it is how our brain works.  

Once you become adamant and persistent in reaffirming to yourself that you are worthy, willing and capable to create the life of your dreams, your critter brain (responsible for the flight-or-fight response) starts to loosen up and allow your consciousness to believe the thoughts you are sending out to the world through your body language and self-talk.  

2. Intention

”Intention triggers transformation of energy and information. Intention organizes its own fulfillment.”Deepak Chopra

Productivity is a result of our inner belief system about what matters most. It is what we do with all of those resources: let them spill and turn into nothing, or use them to chase our goals. Once you have the intention to go from point “A” to “Z,” you start to prime your brain that change is not as scary as it seems; intention is the action-map that backs up your vision with a strategic neural linking (I recommend you to continue reading more in this article).

In other words, instead of just day-dreaming about the thing you desire, you start to make a daily action towards it. Eventually, your subconscious mind begins to notice that you are doing the effort to show up for your goals, and you gradually create new neural pathways that match your intention.  Even the smallest step counts! It may take you longer but it is still moving you forward.:). Patience is key when it comes to reaping the seeds you are implanting in your sub-conscious mind.

3. Goal

Not just a goal, but a goal that is describable. If your goal refers only to a specific noun that is void of meaning (“success,” “money”, “new relationship,” “new career opportunity”), you are literally shooting in the dark when it comes to the law of metaphysics. You need to know very well WHY you want your goal and how , attaining it, will make you feel. When it comes to money, for example, we rarely want money per se. Yes, we need money to pay bills and contribute to the economy, but when we ask for more of it,  we usually mean we want more freedom, more fulfillment, and more security. 

Before you start manifesting, make sure you are really aware of the difference between `wants` and `needs` and ask yourself whether what you want and need results from the same source. If you think you need a job X t, but you actually want to be a freelancer, then manifesting this job doesn’t align with your emotions. So, most likely you won’t get it, or even if you get it, it won’t make you happy, whole and complete. That example applies to every situation. 


To Recap:

The formula for attracting anything you want consists of:

1) Having the vision of what you want. 2) Setting the intention to back up your vision with daily action. 3) Focusing your intention towards a goal that is meaningful to your heart, and not just your brain.

Best of luck, and let me know how it goes! ❤

What Is Dance Fit Ideas

What Is Dance Fit Ideas

What is your passion?


That one thing that always comes back to you, inspires you to take action and helps you be in harmony with your inner balance and higher self?


ABOUT ME

I’ve always loved to dance, since I was four-five years old. Nevertheless, dancing, for me, is more than the activity of moving your body to (or even without) music. It’s our inner rhythm, our compass, our most natural self-expression. And it’s in all of us. Everybody is designed to move freely and be in balance with their body. 

It is unnatural to be static, sedentary and in a misalignment to our somatic intelligence and mind&body connection. The way we feel about ourselves is imprinted in our posture, poise and grace. For all genders. When one feels confident and connected to their emotions, their body directly synthesizes that cellular information and displays it through their movement.

When I started my wellness blog, I hesitated to share my story. I wasn`t sure If I should be that vulnerable online with so many people who don`t know me, and even more challenging, with those who do!

I realized, however, that my own transformational story is the very reason I “heard” and followed my calling to become a motivational speaker, writer, wellness blogger, and – as of now – a health coach. In addition, the mission of my platform is to show that vulnerability is the first critical step toward healing.

As Peter Nivio Zarlenga said, “To come to be you, you must have a vision of Being, a Dream, a Purpose, and a Principle. You will become what your vision is.” 

During my undergraduate studies at the University of Washington (from where I graduated in 2018, with a double major and honors in dance), I was first exposed to the healing properties of dance therapy, mindful eating, meditation and the practice of journaling to metacognition-enhancing prompts.

Gradually, yet steadily, my whole life transformed! I built strong confidence in myself; learned how to listen to my intuition; gained the courage to become an entrepreneur, and (most importantly) followed my passion to create a spiritual business that weaves my intrapersonal and interpersonal skills (based on my degree in International Studies and previous educational experience in Cross-Cultural Communications and Sociology), and my love for dance and mindful living.

Finally, the spiral has come to a completion and I have the privilege to create a platform that serves to encourage and inspire all of you to say “YES” to your dreams, your needs and desires.

As Joseph Campbell wisely: “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”.


Dancer in a split
“Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.” — Victor Hugo

The reason I named my brand Dance Fit Ideas is because dance symbolizes my passion for helping people be more connected to their emotional, mental and physical health.  Fitness is more than an aesthetic value. In fact, it begins with our intention to be fit, in the very idea to change, become better and feel more aligned to who we are, and who we can become once we become truly connected to our ultimate potential.

If you are looking for ways to become more empowered, more confident, more loving, more giving, more centered, more grounded, more appreciated and more successful – in all areas of your life, subscribe to my blog to receive weekly motivation and resources how to achieve all of your fitness and wellness goals.
