ADOPT A NEW HABIT YOU LOVE: Working with Love Energies (Heart Chakra)

As we briefly examined the heart chakra in the last newsletter, we underlined the importance and impact practicing self-love would have on our self-preservation.  When we consistently say YES when we really mean NO it not only affects the health of our throat chakra, but our heart chakra as well.  The body’s energies are weakened when you are not in alignment with your thoughts, speech and actions. Continuing this practice of placing others before you, creates sadness and a heaviness in your chest that will ultimately affect the physical organs in this space; namely, your heart and lungs. Energetically your body knows it’s suffering but you won’t notice it until it is manifested in the physical. It’s worth repeating once again this month!

Last month we talked about steps to create a habit of loving yourself through various means like workshops dedicated to the subject, including work that would raise your self worth so that loving yourself would no longer be a chore. Staying on this subject still needs further discussion with the following thought.

Habit #2:  Respecting your body by exercising regularly and eating healthy food whether you are a vegetarian, vegan or a carnivore.  Avoiding sugar, I believe, does the most harm to your body so keeping everything in balance with the least amount of processed food in your diet is best, and when you need a sugar fix, grab an apple!  Listening to your cravings will say a lot about your state of health so when you love yourself enough, you will listen and take the necessary steps to course-correct.

Here is a great list of what your cravings say about your emotions from Mind Body Green or from Daily Transformations, what your body “really” needs.

My judgment called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.”

Check in next month with some ideas to help get you on track …and stay on track to self-love and other juicy habits you should adopt.
