What’s the first thing you do if you begin to lose your balance?
I never liked the feeling of falling, crashing to the sidewalk and experiencing the crunch of bones, joints, and, well, my sense of self. I know you understand what I mean. The truth is, we have too much experience with being off-balance – not just in the physical way of falling, but the emotional and spiritual way, too. Life happens. People (and animals) get sick. Friends move. Jobs change. Crises occur. That’s all part of the journey. But if you’re feeling off-balance for long, you might tend to stay that way. (I see it all too often!)
Hold on. Brace yourself. Prepare for the worst. In that split second before the fall, you reach out, trying to grasp something to support you. If you’re lucky, it works and you avoid the consequences. If you lose your balance and find yourself sitting on an icy sidewalk (as I did a few years ago), you hold on, brace yourself, and reach out for a hand up. What you do next really matters.
I’m the type of person who grabs onto lessons at every opportunity. Though after my second fall (yes, I fell twice in the same spot) I took extra precautions to make sure I wouldn’t fall again. I changed the type of shoes I was wearing to have extra traction, and walked on the other side of the street to avoid icy spots. However, I was sore and really put a lot of effort into self-care with massage and acupuncture, as well as yoga and stretching.
I had the nagging questions of WHY I fell, why it happened in the same place, and what was I supposed to be doing in my life. The fall came as a message from the universe, I felt, that somehow I needed to pay attention to being more balanced – in every way! If you think like that, too, and if a fall isn’t just a fall, then take the opportunity to go a little deeper.
Chakras are energy centers in the body that move and spin. These energy centers are a direct expression of your soul as they manifest into physical form. If you’re feeling weak, injured, upset, stuck, or otherwise deficient in some way, it could be because you’re either blocking energy or leaking energy. Both blocking and leaking energy are often regulated, at least in part, by emotions, events, and perceptions. These topics can fill books. To make it easy, I’ll just skip to the solution.
The Chakra Balance Tool is designed to give you the power to heal yourself. You don’t have to be attuned to Reiki to use the tool and do the exercise, however, using Reiki amplifies the process. If you’re on my list already, you have a direct link to the tool in my newsletter. If not, just subscribe and I’ll be happy to send it to you.
