To be the best version of ourselves involves having a healthy solar plexus chakra. (Chakras are vortexes of energy in the body.) Each chakra is associated with different physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. When a chakra is healthy, energy flows freely through the physical body. When blockages or depletion occur in the chakras, our physical body suffers.
Have you noticed how you feel stretching after sitting at the computer for a while? Or Have you tried smiling when you are sad and found it has made you feel a little better? In Craniosacral therapy this can be observed and expressed by ‘how our psychology feeds into our physiology and vice versa’. For example, if we clench our jaw and tighten our shoulders we can activate the vagus nerve, stimulating the flight fight response.
Interesting fact for you – we operate from the subconscious mind over 90% of the time. This means our thoughts and emotions often ‘happen to us’ or ‘influence us’ to act or feel a certain way, without us really knowing why, or without much awareness/consciousness in our behaviour. This can lead to feeling dissatisfied with life and often feeling ‘victim’ to it.
