Being the first day of the new year I want to focus on the intentions we are setting for ourselves. Last night I began reading a new book, Crystal Healing For Beginners. I know a bit about crystals, but I want to grow my knowledge and collection this coming year. In chapter 3, they introduce chakras and their importance. A disruption in any one of our chakras can cause imbalances on an emotional level as well as a physical level. It got me thinking about my diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Interstitial Cystitis. Upon a google search of chakra imbalance and PCOS, I discovered the connection to the sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is located within the abdomen just below the belly button. It fosters reproduction and creativity along with feelings of joy, harmony, and deservedness. An imbalance of this chakra is associated with health issues such as PCOS, endometriosis, pelvic pain, and urinary problems. On an emotional level, an imbalance of the sacral chakra correlates with feelings of low self-worth, lack of harmony, and stagnation in one’s life. Geez, if only I knew that my sacral chakra was out of balance all these years.
Throughout 2016, I gained a lot of insight and answers to my health and well-being. I was given the tools and now in 2017 I am ready to do the work. My intention for this new year is to take control of my health once and for all. Through diet, a positive outlook and surrounding myself with things that bring me joy, I know I can release the diseases that have taken over my life all these years. The biggest thing I need to remember is that I am worthy of a beautiful life. I am deserving. I’ve struggled with feeling not good enough for so long but I need to finally realize that I am. I remember reading something earlier this year that talked about the laws of attraction. We can put out into the universe what we want, but that is only one part of the equation. The second and most important part is being open to receiving. We are all worthy of great things. We just need to be open and know that we are deserving of them. We create the life we want so why not create an amazing one. What are your intentions for this new year?
