When we discover the various ways we can be whole it is a breath of fresh air.  Our wholeness is truly the way we want to conduct our lives.  With wholeness we see the entire scene before us.  We see with clarity, unity and loving happiness for all those who cross our path for wholeness is the way of the warrior.  When we are complete there is no other internal power.  When we discover for ourselves what makes us whole we can fight the internal dialogues that do not serve us.  We fight the ways that the injustices of our mind choose – we choose better.

Monkey Mind and Finding Balance

By Zodie Klempp

Our mind is a beautiful and powerful force when it is working with us instead of against us.  Our mind can run overtime and thus be called our ‘monkey mind.’  It looks like this, you are: busy, distracted, changing from shopping list of ideas, to the kids needs, back to the boss’ latest employee performance you are clearly failing  to meet your targets.  The way-ward , unfocused thinking can be overwhelming, anxiety going through the roof and a host of other problems begin forming.  The tape in your head is overplaying the coffee break mishap of being confronted by your cohorts at work wondering why you have missed your deadlines to submit the groups work.  You are in a fog, the mind is busy but your work performance is slowly declining, you have no get-up and go because procrastination has set in.

How do we return to balance? The chakra system is integrative, meaning they work together for the benefit of the whole.   All the chakras are working together but certain issues can be tackled by concentrating on certain ones.  In the case of trying to manifest something new or see a linear process through the craziness, there are 3 chakras that work together  – the 6th, the 3rd and the 1st.  The chakras need to be set and maintain their optimum opening setting and then they need to be partnered together to balance.  The two chakra partnerships are the 6th with the 3rd and the 3rd with the 1st .

The sixth chakra at the center of our head, is where our beliefs and thought forms are housed.  What we choose to create begins here.  The energy flows through this informing and articulating an idea from the 6th to the 3rd.  The third chakra, located at the notch of the ribs, generates our volition to manifest and bring into fruition the idea into form.  The first chakra, between the ovaries in women and at the base of the spine for men, supports meeting your physical needs.  This flow of energy between the third (volition) and the first translates into physically staying on track and on task for getting the original informed idea of the sixth into place.

Balance will look like clear thinking, we are present and at ease.  The anxiety and overwhelm will not be triggered.  Setting and balancing your chakras can bring you into current time and you will be more rested because the tapes that play on repeat will subside.  That fog will lift and you will regain organization and completion of tasks.  There are two ways of living life – in survival mode or creative mode.

Calm Racing Thoughts With This Energy Practice

By Jill Leigh

Question: My thoughts race all the time. Meditation is impossible for me. Is something going on with my energy that keeps me from being calm and present?

Racing thoughts are so challenging. Mindfulness is supposed to be an antidote for monkey mind, but when thoughts are racing, tracking the breath or finding an inner sanctum proves impossible.

Your energy dictates your experience. When something is running amok, evolving your energy can expedite behavior change, especially with a tough pattern like racing thoughts.

First, let’s look at some causes of racing thoughts or monkey mind:

  • You’re fighting gravity — you’ve pulled all of your energy up into your head. To do this, you’ve closed down your feet chakras, in the arches of your feet.
  • You’re losing ground — well, your grounding that is. Your feet chakras are part of your grounding system that anchors your energy to the Earth and enables you to let go.
  • You’re heart less — your heart is the most powerful electromagnetic field in your body. When thoughts race, your heart chakra gets overridden (and with it, your ability to be compassionate, balanced, and fully present). You’re not heartless, but definitely heart less.
  • Your thoughts are amplified —excess energy floods your head because your 6th chakra is too open, keeping you stuck in the monkey mind pattern. Mudras, mindfulness, following the breath become irrelevant and useless tools.

Here’s a simple energy practice for you to apply when the monkeys are loose and running the show. As you train your energy, your mind will learn that you’re operating differently. The monkeys will surrender to presence, balance and grounded awareness.
Try this:

  • Put your feet flat on the floor (if possible, stand up, arms at your side, posture comfortably straight). Take 2 or 3 full, comfortable breaths
  • Set a simple, clear intention to shift your energy, such as: I am present, aligned and balanced
  • Bring your awareness to your feet chakras, in the arches of your feet
  • Pretend, imagine, demand, dictate, authorize your feet chakras to open up, connecting your energy to the Earth and its gravitational pull. You can set your feet chakras to 60 or 70% open as you affirm that you are the authority of your energy. Your wish is your command!
  • Track your energy. You may sense a downward flow, perhaps accompanied by tingling in the legs and feet, feeling more anchored, a pleasant heaviness, mental calmness and clarity.
  • Bring your awareness to your 6th chakra in the center of your head
  • Pretend, imagine, demand, dictate, authorize your 6th chakra to reset to about 50% open. (You’ll be closing it down, probably from 70 or 80% open, which is what happens when your energy rushes up to your head.)
  • Validate your choice to be present, balanced, grounded, aligned.

Now, as you evolve your being, observe yourself without judgment. If you treat yourself with contempt when you notice you’re in monkey mind, you’ll actually be feeding the monkeys!
Rather, notice when monkey mind is operating, and apply the practice. Keep at it — you’re in training. You may not master this in a day or a week. As you compassionately apply the practice, your heart will take its rightful place as the fulcrum of your energy body and the monkeys will recede.

Here’s to balance, composure, meditation, presence, alignment and gravity!

Free Course:  Introduction to Setting Chakras and Balance

When I was new to energy work, I had no clue as to what I was looking for.  I just knew I was interested in energy.  I knew the basics about chakras and I knew that rocks and gemstones caused me to vibrate when I was in a rock and gem store.  What I did not know was how much fun I had in discovering more about myself and the reasons why I did what I do.

In my past there was a trauma and it defined the life that I had growing up.  It gave me a bunch of so called scars but it was a blessing in disguise because it taught me more about myself.  The energy clearing tools I learned helped me clear my programming, my karma, my agreements and my contracts I have with the actors in my life.  It rally has been a movie playing out.  Now I have control over my life.  I have taken responsibility for my actions.  I have become current – I no longer live in the past.  I have become the one I am most proud of.  I feel abundant and embodied in life and genuinely happy – mind, body and spirit.

The road to energy healing has been beneficial in so many ways.  As a way of helping you to find that you are the healer in your own life, I will be hosting a FREE Zoom course called “Introduction to Chakra Setting and Balance” on the evening of May 3, 2023, 7pm MST.  Send me a message via Instagram, Facebook or the website www.promoveoenergyandwellness.com about your interest in attending.
