Resolutions for Each of the 7 Chakras

Resolutions for Each of the 7 Chakras

The beginning of a new year is an opportunity for transformation. Life patterns that no longer assist our highest potential such as poor foods choices or unhelpful habits can be replaced with positive and healthful actions. What better time than now?

A journal can be an excellent tool and partner along life’s path. Write down what you want your life to look like in a year and what steps you are willing to take to achieve those goals. Write ten things you want to accomplish this year. Write down 100 things you wish to do in your lifetime. Putting goals on paper is a first step to achieving them.

Take a picture of yourself now. Do another next year at this time. If we keep doing the same things, we are likely to get the same results. Replace a negative habit with a positive one — getting a manicure (preferably with more natural products) rather than biting your nails, for example. Make this the best year ever!

Every year I make a resolution for each chakra. Here are some suggestions where you might find a few ideas to give you inspiration to choose your own New Year’s resolutions.

(The word chakras comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel.” They are considered energy centers and each chakra corresponds to a color, action and part of the body.)

Perhaps in grade school you or your friends had a chart on the fridge listing chores. Across the top might be the days of the week. After completing a task, and perhaps receiving a star one enjoyed a sense of accomplishment. It’s still a good idea.

Make a list of all the healthy chores (or pleasures!) that would be helpful to you. Include body, mind and spirit things like taking an aromatherapy bath, taking an herbal supplement, eating a salad daily, getting outdoors, or attending a yoga class. One might have as a goal being sugar, alcohol or wheat free all day. Since you most likely couldn’t fulfill all of your goals every day, try for at least seven things daily.

Rather than going to bed at night, saying, “Darn, I forgot to do my eye exercises,” we can affirm we did many healthy things today and tomorrow there will be others!

What a sweet little baby!

My dog says she is :-)

I just throw things that I think would be good together and steam, bake, or saute and surprise mysel…

Dogs and modesty? Not so much :)
