Are you familiar with the Chakras?
I want to share with you why I am fascinated by them. They offer us deep, simple and powerful wisdom that we can use to feel more rooted and winged every day.
The Chakras have been a strong and clear guide in my healing journey & in how I support the that of other beings too and for this reason, they are strongly woven in all The Star Process™ work offerings I create and share. Their ancient wisdom and experiential wholeness makes them tangible lights and tools in the process of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual integration.
What are the Chakras?
The Chakras are wheel-like energy centers that spin within us. There are seven, and each one of them reflects a particular aspect of consciousness essential to our lives. Anodea Judith PH.D, author of "Wheels of Life: A User's Guide to the Chakra System," (2004), says:
"Together the seven chakras form a profound formula for wholeness that integrates mind, body and spirit. As a complete system the chakras provide a powerful tool for both personal and planetary growth.
Chakras are organizing centers for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life energies. Our chakras, as core centers, form the coordinating network of our mind/body system. From instinctual behavior to consciously planned strategies, from emotions to artistic creations, the chakras are the master programs that govern our life, loves, learning and illumination, As seven vibratory modalities, the chakras form a mythical Rainbow Bridge, a connecting channel linking Heaven and Earth, mind and body, spirit and matter, past and future." (p. 4).
The chakras have been a solid anchor in my practice. Their integrated wisdom is a continuous inspiration for exploring the multiple levels our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual being, through movement (yoga, intuitive dance), sound, drawing-painting, writing and food.
The Star Process™ is deeply grounded on the wisdom of the chakras.
Here is a wonderful chart that gives the big picture of their qualities and guidance.
