I am unashamedly a huge fan of Avatar, The Last Airbender, an animated family series. (Note, it’s not the movie by the same name I’m talking about here, or the other movie with the big beautiful blue people from Pandora!)
A series that can give me humor and sheer entertainment while inspiring me with pearls of wisdom makes me excited to think that kids are watching it with their parents. When I saw this episode explaining the chakras in such a simple and lovely way I knew I had to share it with you.
As Guru Pathik explains to Avatar Ang “The water flows through this creek, much like the energy flows through your body. As you see, there are several pools where the water swirls around before flowing on. These pools are like our chakras.”
So what can you do if your ‘pools’ are not flowing?
Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about saving the world like Ang is….but it still does feel better for yourself when you take care of your most precious resource – your own energy. One of the best ways I know is to receive a Reiki balancing with a trained Reiki healer, but you can also simply give your focus and loving attention to your own chakras by placing your hands over each one and breathing deeply, drawing in light and energy in any way you like to.
I love doing Reiki sessions, for me it is energy healing ‘pure and simple’, and feels like we just ‘go home’ for a bit, touching into the pure love of the Divine. As the video taught us, each chakra relates to different emotions, so people often find they feel more emotionally balanced as well as having a release of physical tension.
