Divinity is defined as the state of being divine, being of, from or like God. When we rise from a place of our physical selves, certain aspects begin to pass away...fear,ego, selfishness, and others ideas begin to take form. Ideas that exudes positivity, ascension and guides us towards our greatest selves. Once you reach this level, you tap into an energy that is not of this physical world, a place of omnipresence, where there is no beginning or end. 

Sahasrara is the seventh and last chakra of the energy series; even with it being one of the last chakra it is quite possibly one of the most important of the seven primary chakras.  Appropriately named the Crown Chakra, Sahasrara is known to be our source of enlightenment and all that there is. It...

'Watch your mouth and hold your teeth...'. 'There is power in the tongue...'. 'Be careful of how you speak...'. Chances are if you've heard one of these statements in this lifetime. The throat, outside of it being one of the first parts of digestive process, it is our main communicator. It is how most of us express ourselves and relay information. With it's level of significance, the energy that surrounds it is just as important.

The fifth chakra in the energy series, is known as the Throat Chakra and is the first of the three spiritual chakras. With the Sanskrit name, Vishudda, breaking down to mean 'pure' or 'purification', this chakra is related to the element of sound and encompasses the essence of faith and understanding. Through the throat...

The constant feeling of being down and out or in that sunken place where there is no light at the end of the tunnel, is not only depressing but a strong indication of something deeper. On the contrary, aggression, quick agitation, even being egotistical could be a sign of something similar. But regardless of what category is, all signs are pointing to imbalance.

Imbalances

The blockages within the Manipura Chakra can manifest in a variety ways. And as with anything there are levels to the presentation of it; in this case it being over or under-active. With an overactive chakra you can find yourself being overly critical or judgmental and easy to fault find within others. You may really stubborn or harsh, demanding even; having extreme emotional is...

Do I struggle with being open to positive change? Do I feel so much fear that I become overwhelmed? Am I detached or disconnected from certain aspects of life? Do I feel completely depressed as if life really has no purpose? Answering yes to any one of these questions can mean that there is an imbalance in your Svadhisthana or the Sacral Chakra. As with anything, most people chock these issues up to it just being a bad day, week, month...year or some horrible coincidence of life. However, once you understand that barely anything in life is happenstance or a coincidence you'll begin to learn to look under the surface to find the answers.

When the sacrum is out of alignment, one can feel as if you've lost control of life and you're not able to catc...

When dealing with issues we tend to look at the issue itself opposed to the underlining problem that may lie. For example if you have back issues, you would say to yourself, 'it must have been the way that slept', if you find yourself upset and easily angered, you would say, 'I'm just having a bad week'.  All too quickly dismissing the issue as just happenstance and not looking too much further beyond that. But as we have discovered those physical, emotional and psychological ailments might be alluding to an imbalanced energy.

When it comes to the healing of yourself, we must first look at the energy that we are holding within.

There are a multitude of ways one can use to find balance and release the blockage that they are experiencing....

Often times we as people tend to look at the issues that we face and the emotions that encompasses it as just happenstance. Certain ailments and conditions, both physically and emotionally, are deemed as being medical or psychological defects that just plague your life. However, have you considered that the reason for these problems are from within and more importantly the solutions can be found there as well?

In my research of the subject matter, I've come to realize that a lot of issues are rooted in the type of energy that we harness inside in our individual selves. Each chakra holds and is responsible for a particular energy that strongly effects a psychological and/or physical portion of us. If you have a pain in a specific part of your body...
