CHAKRA Have you heard this word before? What does it mean? What exactly are charkas?
Chakras are our energy centres within our body’s and in our outer aura. Each person has many charkas. Possibly over 300 chakras in total. We tend to concentrate on and talk about the 7 major charkas which are the direct link to our life force energy or universal energy.
The 7 main charkas or energy centres situated along the etheric spine. This is the layer closest to the body. The charkas do spread out to all 6 layers of the aura but are mostly concerned with the etheric layer. They are the sight of where the transference of life force energy from the universal field takes place. In appearance they resemble a wheel. The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel. The centres of these wheels pulsate rhythmically with energy and resemble flowers. Often they are likened to lotus flowers. Each centre having a different number of petals in accordance to its energies. The charkas are never still but they do spin at different speeds which depend on the state of the person’s health. Five of the charkas are in a line down the etheric spine and the other two are locate between the eyebrows and above the crown of the head. Each chakra has a specific colour and each is associated with a particular gland of the endocrine system and specific organs.
Have you ever met someone and although they seem happy and are laughing and joking you sense that there is something upsetting them or you detect certain sadness about them. It is quiet likely that their charkas are in need of rebalancing and restoring to health. Sometimes you can detect this about yourself. When you are having a bad day and things are just getting you down or past memories are affecting your daily mood. You get the feeling of something is just not right but you can’t put your finger on it. On the other hand you may be aware that you are full of joyous happiness and you are living your life with zest and consciousness. Once you have had this sensation of awareness you are reading energy. It is the energy which is within all of us. Some of us tap into it regularly and tap into the universal energy around us. When we are feeling down or trouble, worries, fearful or depressed our energy centre/charkas may need to be rebalanced or healed. Every day life in this fast pacing world can have a negative effect on our unique energy with out us being aware of it. Many of us are familiar with this feeling. Recognising this disturbance and accepting it is the start or rebalancing ourselves and regaining that vitality we strive for.
There are many exercises and techniques we can do to help us to stay in a state of balance and vibrancy. Some of the exercises are very easy and become part of daily routine. Actually many people rebalance charkas instinctively. Have you ever had the urge to be along a beach or in a forest? Have you caught yourself when in the company of someone who is negative and draining repeating phrases to yourself and blocking their word out? This is simply your own body searching for away to protect itself and to heal. It can be helpful to know what each of the major charkas are about and to rebalance them individually.
Over the next few days, I will post up some information about each of the charkas and some basic healing techniques.

This months issue of The Irish Garden magazine has a feature on reiki and how it can help you to re-balance. the connection to the earth, grounding and gardening is also discussed. I am proud to say that Sole 2 Soul Therapies feature in this piece and really enjoyed the interview experience. It is so nice to spread the word of reiki and its benefits.
There comes a time when you must stand alone.
You must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams.
You must be willing to make sacrifices.
You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.
Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged.
There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities.
Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better.
Be confident enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by.
Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself the opportunities to grow, develop, and find your true sense of purpose in this life.
Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way.
What is Reiki?
Simply put Reiki is a self healing therapy. It is an age old Japanese holistic healing technique which alleviates pain and elevates relaxation. So much illness and disease is caused from stress. You may not think you are stressed or feel that there are any stressors around you but endless traffic jams, racing to and from schools, work deadlines, financial commitments, relationship issues, demanding children, the list goes on, are all adding to the stress we encounter on a daily basis. While it is true that we cannot remove some of these stresses, we do not have to allow our reaction to them have a negative impact on our health. We can change the way we react to the stress which results in less trauma on our body. This trauma is when we feel very unbalanced. Reiki allows us to rebalance our systems and to build our immunity to illness, disease and mental fatigue.
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. This is the energy which is all around us. Reiki simply taps into to this and channels it through our body to create balance. We can all access Reiki. It is not a unique gift for certain people. We all have Reiki and we can all use it. We are all born with it. It is part of us. Some use this universal energy and use it all the time in their daily lives. It is just a natural part of them while others have unfortunately lost their ability to use and awareness of this energy. This can happen as we grow from childhood to adulthood. A lot of the time our emotional baggage gets in the way and our channels become cluttered with past experiences, traumas, stress and negativity.
So how can we get it back?
Reiki is simply bringing back that energy into our conscious mind. It is an awakening and a new awareness of this beautiful healing energy. There are many ways to do this. One such way is through reiki. In the western world Reiki is taught in 3 levels. You can decide to take each of these levels when ever you feel you are ready to go ahead to the next level. It is advisable to do as much Reiki healing between levels as you can.
Each level can be learned in a weekend workshop. The Reiki Master passes the Reiki to the student in a series of attunements. This enlightens the student to the Reiki energy. For some people this can be a very spiritual and awakening experience. Level one is very much about re-activating the flow of Reiki and learning self-healing techniques and how to help friend's and family heal. This is a fantastic therapy you can use on yourself. It has helped so many people to change how they react to stress and to induce total relaxation which enables the body to repair itself.
During a level two workshop, which, can be taken as little as a few months after level one if you feel drawn to it, you are introduced to a higher level Reiki of energy. Sacred symbols are passed on to you and it is possible to send Reiki to the past, present and future. At this stage you have the ability to practice Reiki professionally if you wish to. It is not essential or a requirement that you take all the levels of Reiki and some people are very happy to stay on level one or two. Many wait between level one and two until they feel need to progress which is usually after plenty self-healing has happened and reiki is a part of their daily lives.
The next level is level three and this is the Master level. This is for those who are ready to seek more Reiki learning and experience. It allows you to teach Reiki and to attune others into the Reiki healing system.
Reiki workshops are run regularly in Wicklow Town. If you are interested in learning more about reiki or attending a workshop, please contact me:
