The 8th Chakra and the Universal Heart First published in Kindred Spirit magazine Mar/Apr 2007 If you find yourself almost overwhelmed by the emotion of a sunset or by the sight of suffering and you feel as though you are breaking open with joy or compassion, the chances are that your 8th chakra is opening. Over five millennia ago, the Vedic spiritual tradition of ancient India recognised that the consciousness of our ego-based selves is mediated through energetic vortices, or chakras. But we have known at a deep level that our personality energy field of seven chakras is incomplete.

Error Feedback: Skill Acquisition Theory As noted in the previous post on theory in error feedback, the research on expertise and ACT-R Theory suggest that learning a language is similar to learning other activities like chess, music, and math. In this post, we'll look at Skill Acquisition Theory (SAT), which is based upon the work in ACT-R. Robert DeKeyser (2007) has a good overview of Skill Acquisition Theory. (See Theories in Second Language Acquistion.) As he notes, development has three stages: declarative, procedural, and automatic (from ACT-R Theory).
7 Sacred Herbs for Activating and Harmonizing the Chakras By Justin Faerman Guest Writer for Wake Up World While the chakras themselves are energetic/etheric in nature, they each have corresponding physical organs, glands and systems in the body that can, and do, have an effect on their functioning. When the associated organ/gland/system is weak or out of balance, the relevant chakra will be under active; and when the associated organ/system is balanced and healthy, the chakra will generally be in harmony. This interconnectivity of the physical and etheric bodies goes the other way as well—if there is an energetic imbalance in a chakra, for example, as a result of emotional disturbances, then this can also cause the associated physical elements to become weak as well.
The Root Chakra The Root Chakra influences your physical vitality, physical survival instincts, “fight or flight” response, and the emotions of anger, jealousy, desire and greed. The Muladhara or Root Chakra governs the lessons of surviving the material world. This Chakra holds information involving family loyalty, superstitions and beliefs, and your ability to stand up for yourself; your sense of safety, self esteem, and security are based here. The Root Chakra controls the energy of instincts, physical pain, pleasure, and touch. Imbalance in the Muladhara may manifest as losing interest in survival in the “real world”, physical addictions and obsessions, selfishness, restlessness, volatile emotions and a lack of vitality.
1: The Very Different World of Long-Term Illness When you develop a long-term illness, like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or fibromyalgia, you may feel like you have entered a new world in which all the rules of life have changed and there is no obvious way forward. This perplexing situation can make you feel helpless. But there are many things you can do to gain control and improve your well being. This book will show you how to take an active role in managing your illness. We'll start by looking at how long-term illness is different from short-term illness and terminal illness. Short-term or acute illnesses are temporary problems that usually end because of medical treatment or the passage of time.
Keeping The Seven Chakras Healthy By Wes Annac Guest Writer for Wake Up World Chakras are literally the body’s etheric energy centers that bring through and interpret the creative energy of the higher realms, and we unknowingly use the energy that comes through them to create/sustain our reality and keep our bodies physically healthy. Swadhistana Chakra Healing The Sacral Chakra encapsulates your sexuality, self esteem, creativity, pleasures and frustrations. It is also known as the Swadhistana or Second Chakra, and in Martial Arts, it is known as the “Hara”. The Swadhistana governs life lessons involving blaming and guilt, sex, power and control; this Chakra is the base for your sense of morality. The Second Chakra is the base of your creativity, manifesting, money and prosperity.
Forget the Resolutions, Create a Vision Board that Works With the holiday buzz quietly behind us, are you still forging ahead with the new goals you wanted to implement into 2013, or, like most people, are you already noticing a backslide? It’s the middle of January, and studies show that 80% of our resolutions are now as out of our thoughts as the boxed up Christmas decorations. One of the reasons that resolutions are often sidetracked is that they cause us to focus on what we need to give up, instead of asking for more of what we want.
Opening the Chakras Written by © Ewald Berkers Chakra meditations that use mudras and sounds to open chakras These chakra meditations use mudras, which are special hand positions, to open chakras. The mudras have the power to send more energy to particular chakras. To enhance the effect, sounds are chanted.
Healing the Manipura Chakra The Solar Plexus Chakra, or Manipura, rules lessons involving fear of rejection, your self esteem, sensitivity to criticism, a distorted self image, and fear of your “secrets being found out”. The wisdom of the Solar Plexus involves your sense of personal power and knowing, your personality and your sense of belonging. An imbalance in the Manipura might manifest as poor decisions, poor concentration, trouble taking action and getting things done, and an inability to judge a situation accurately. Imbalances in this Chakra can create feelings that you are more, or less, than other people. Emotional memories are stored within the Manipura, and it is where your ‘gut feelings’ originate, it is the center of your emotional life, and many are naturally connected to the environment through the Solar Plexus chakra. The Third Chakra is right above your belly button, at the center of your solar plexus.
My Most Common Teaching Mistake I regularly find myself questioning some of my behaviours and actions in my classroom and wonder how I could have handled a situation better. But, you know what….we all make mistakes. Even the best teachers I know make mistakes now and then. And you know what, it’s generally the same mistake that I can’t stop making. Do you have this too?
