Keeping Our Chakras Healthy




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 and / or sustain our reality and keep our bodies physically healthy.
Keeping our chakras healthy is as important as keeping our physical bodies healthy, and as our collective vibration continues to rise, more people will become aware of the chakras, and the necessity to treat them respectfully and maintain a strong, clear connection to the energy they bring through.
We cannot treat something correctly, however, if we do not know it exists.  And, most of humanity still has a lot to learn about the spiritual nature of our existence, including our chakras. Here I will discuss each chakra and give a few accompanying paragraphs about what we can do to keep it healthy and flowing.
I’m sure most of you know about the seven basic chakras. However, it is believed that we have even more chakras beyond the basic seven that will activate as we continue to raise our vibration. So, let's begin with the root chakra.

#1: The Root Chakra
For those of you who do not know, the root chakra is responsible for our basic creative and survival-based instincts. We rely more on our sacral chakra and our third eye/crown chakras for creativity, but the root chakra plays a role in doing anything creative and especially anything that is meant to help us survive.
Our instincts are stored in the root chakra, and we can call on it for assistance with any aspect of our lives that has to do with survival.
To keep the root chakra healthy, we need to listen to our intuition. Even though we receive intuitive impressions primarily from the third eye and crown chakras, if we listen to our intuition, we will be led to make choices that help us survive and keep ourselves sustained in the best and healthiest ways possible.
The more we listen to our intuition, the stronger and healthier the root chakra will be, and after so long of following our inner intuitive guidance, we will find that our root is as strong and healthy as it is meant to be.
We have to be willing to hear out our intuition instead of endlessly following the wants and desires of the ego, which usually run against the wisdom and guidance our intuition gives. With practice, patience and determination, our root chakra will be strong, healthy and brimming with energy that will enhance our sustainability.

#2: The Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is our main center for creativity, sexuality, and emotion, and there are plenty of things we can do to keep it healthy. There are also plenty of things we can do to keep it out of balance, and if we aren’t careful, we can damage it by way of our actions and our refusal to, again, listen to our intuition.
We will find that listening to the intuition is very important when it comes to keeping every chakra healthy, and this can especially be said for the sacral chakra. It is one of the more acutely sensitive chakras, so to keep it healthy and brimming, we will want to make choices that do not bring it out of balance.
We do not want to overstimulate ourselves in any area . . . .  creatively, emotionally, mentally, sexually, etc. We want to keep an even amount of energy flowing through this chakra at all times, and we do not want to deplete or overflow it and cause it to fall out of balance.
Balance is the most important thing to practice when it comes to keeping the sacral chakra healthy.  You will be very happy that you made an effort to keep your sacral chakra healthy when you see how much it enhances your creativity and the enthusiasm with which you embrace life and every situation you face.
Above all, keeping our thoughts, actions , nd emotions in alignment will keep our sacral chakra in alignment.  We will also want to routinely do something creative that gets the sacral chakra’s juices flowing if we want to keep it strong and healthy.

#3: The Navel (or Solar Plexus) Chakra
As its name suggests, this chakra is located behind our belly button.  To keep it healthy, we want to make sure we do not overstimulate it by eating unhealthy foods. We also want to scrupulously monitor our eating habits and what we choose to put into our bodies.
Overeating will overstimulate the navel chakra and deplete its ability to bring through any real or pure energy, but eating the right amount of healthy and supportive foods will empower it to bring through a healthy and flowing amount of energy for us to use for a wealth of different purposes.
Even though it has specific uses, the navel chakra lends its energies to assisting the rest of our chakras with their primary functions.
For example, the navel chakra could send energy to the sacral chakra in an attempt to assist this chakra with any given creative pursuit we take up. It could also send its energy to the throat or third eye chakras to help them with any specific tasks they are involved in, and generally, it acts as a balancer for the rest of the chakras.
However, the navel chakra cannot balance anything if it is out of alignment itself, so we will want to take care of it and remember to think about it the next time we sit down for a big and tasty, yet unhealthy meal.

#4: The Heart Chakra
It is pretty clear what this chakra does for us. Like a lot of seekers have learned, it holds some of the purest love we can store within our physical and etheric bodies, and we can call on it for assistance when we are having trouble finding the loving energy that helps us thrive . . . . creatively, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
It goes without saying that love is everything. It literally makes up everything in existence, and this is why we want to have a healthy dose of it swimming through the heart chakra.
To take care of this chakra, we want to willingly and routinely express the inner love that is helping us evolve, which, of course, comes directly through it. The rest of the chakras bring this energy through as well, however, the heart chakra brings the love through in a much purer and more potent way than the rest of the chakras.
We want to keep our heart chakra in use as much and as often as we can if we want to continuously feel its energies. If we ever feel depleted of the love we have come to share with the rest of humanity, we can call on our heart chakra (and the rest of our chakras) to express it through us more purely.
Chakras need to be used regularly in order to stay healthy, and this can especially be said for the heart. Of course, we bring energy through it whether or not we realize it, but the energy flows much stronger and purer when we make a conscious, concerted effort to bring it through.

#5: The Throat Chakra
The throat chakra (along with the sacral) is partially responsible for our creativity, and it feeds our self-expression. We physically express ourselves by speaking through our throats, but there is a deeper spiritual component to our expression that most people do not realize.
The throat chakra’s primarily responsible for our ability and willingness to express ourselves, and it can be used to achieve truly amazing things. In order to keep it healthy, we want to keep our physical throat as healthy as we can.
We do not want to damage or mistreat our physical throat, because it could damage our throat chakra or, at the very least, make it difficult for this chakra to help us express ourselves.
Obviously, we want to take care of our bodies in general if we want any of our chakras to be healthy.  However, keeping our physical throat healthy is essential to making sure the creative and expressive energies flow through as healthily as they can.

#6: The Third Eye Chakra
This is arguably the most popular chakra with the consciousness community, and for some seekers, it is the only chakra they really know anything about.
Along with the crown, the third eye helps us perceive spirit and the vibrations we can share with everyone around us in a much more real and direct way.  And, with meditation and other attunement methods, we can perceive a wealth of greater creative and spiritual energies and even find enlightenment.
It takes a lot to find enlightenment and there are various stages of it that we have to traverse before we find it in a real and pure sense.  That being said, we can utilize our third eye to assist us with achieving enlightenment.
In order to keep our third eye healthy, we need to focus our energy on it whenever we meditate or do anything that is intended to align us with Spirit. We also want to routinely practice bringing our creative and spiritual energy through it, otherwise it will go stale if it is not routinely used.
If we are motivated enough, we can bring through a wealth of greater spiritual energy that we direct through the third eye and use to help ourselves and the people around us find a higher vibration.  And, the more we practice bringing this universally pure energy through the third eye, the stronger it will become.
It also helps to use our meditations in an attempt to perceive the third eye.  Also, if we meditate long enough, we can actually physically and ethereally perceive it and travel through our third eye to what is called a ‘portal to the other side’.
Certain power structures have attempted to suppress knowledge of the third eye in an effort to keep humanity unaware of the sacred truths of our existence.  However, a growing number of seekers are becoming aware of it and using that awareness to strengthen their perceptions of it, keeping it strong and healthy as a result.
This brings us to our final chakra.

#7: The Crown Chakra
The crown chakra is the center for our purest and most direct spiritual development . . . . even purer than the third eye. The third eye plays a very important role in keeping our minds, bodies and spirits healthy, but the crown chakra helps us bring through a wealth of energy that is even purer than what we bring through the rest of our chakras.
The crown and heart chakras have a lot in common, as the energy that comes through both of these chakras is stronger and purer than the energy we receive through the rest of our chakras.
To keep our crown chakra healthy, we should practice daily attunement to a higher state of consciousness in whatever way works best for us.
We can practice spirit communication, which will help us sharpen our perception of our crown and every other chakra; we can practice meditation, dancing and every form of spiritual attunement under the sun; or we can simply enjoy an enlightening spiritual conversation with a fellow seeker.
If we do this, we will bring a wealth of creative and expressional energy through the crown chakra, which will travel down and express itself through the throat and heart.
We use all of our chakras to bring through energy or express ourselves, but certain activities and practices will strengthen certain chakras. Such is the case with the crown chakra, which thrives when we practice the spiritual attunement methods that help us find a higher vibration with a greater degree of ease.

In Conclusion
Hopefully, the information offered here will help those of you who have wondered what you can do to keep your chakras as strong, healthy and flowing as possible.
We want our chakras to be pure and healthy if we want to do anything significant or helpful here on earth.  And, if we are willing to do things that balance them out and enable them to receive the energy that helps us evolve more purely, we will have little difficulty doing anything that requires this energy.
As long as we keep all of our chakras aligned, everything will flow with grace and ease.  As a result, our willingness to contribute to our ongoing conscious revolution will strengthen exponentially.

Reiki Energy Healing



Reiki is an incredibly amazing energy healing modality, which is a unique discipline that has been used throughout the world for many years and is one of the most ancient healing techniques you can use to keep your body in a balanced and healthy state.  The particular form of Reiki utilized by our staff is Usui Reiki, which originated in Japan.  It is truly an incredibly simple, yet incredibly powerful system of energy healing, which Florence Healing Arts gladly offers to their clients.

Reiki, pronounced “Ray-Key”, is a Japanese word.

Reiki ~ A Japanese form of complementary or alternative medicine developed (or rediscovered) during the latter half of the 19th century.

Rei is the Japanese word for universal, spiritual, sacred, divine.

Ki is the word for vital energy, life force energy, prana that flows through everything.

Reiki is actually a generic word in Japan that is used to describe many types of healing and spiritual work.   It is not exclusive to Usui’s system of healing, however, it is a profound system of healing where the universal life force energy flows to and through the practitioner.
Since Reiki migrated to the West, it has branched off into many directions, however, the bottom line is that Reiki is Reiki.  What truly matters is that Reiki is here and that it is being offered for healing, as well as being shared.



Reiki for People . . .

Reiki healing energy is transmitted via the Reiki Practitioner through light, hands-on contact, or with the hands held above the body, or can also be transmitted across the room, or even long-distance (where the client is not physically present, however, would have awareness of Reiki being sent to them).

During a Reiki session, the person receiving Reiki often becomes deeply relaxed, and may experience a release of tension (muscles become relaxed), pleasant tingling sensations, a reduction in pain, or even a shift in their emotional stance (whereby issues rise to the surface and are released, causing exhalations and perhaps even tears, etc.).  Sometimes clients see colors, receive messages, fall into a restful sleep, or there may be occasions where the client feels nothing.  In the rare case where the client experiences nothing during the session, they may notice subtle or not-so-subtle changes over the next 12-72 hours.  The Reiki experience is different for every client, and also varies from session to session.  The most important thing is to just relax, release our attachments and expectations, and just let go and just ‘be’.

As you can see, Reiki complements both conventional and alternative therapies and can enhance their actions, as well as lessen their side effects.  Reiki can also provide compassionate support and comfort people in hospice making the transition much more peaceful for everyone concerned.

Reiki is just one of the many healing modalities offered by Florence Healing Arts. All services are by appointment with the exception of our Walk-In Clinic every Monday afternoon. You may reach us at 413*548*0012.
