“Awareness is always the first step to healing.” ~ Deborah King
Are past traumas and buried emotions keeping you trapped? It really is true that what you don’t know can hurt you. Negative thoughts and unprocessed feelings may be hiding in your unconscious mind, affecting your overall health and happiness. In my work as an energy healer and spiritual teacher, I have found these buried thoughts and feelings to be the number one obstacle that keeps people from moving up in consciousness as well as the primary cause of illness. Keep painful experiences buried and they eventually block the healthy flow of energy through your body’s chakra energy system.
Fortunately, it’s never too late to clear out old traumas with energy healing. Blockages in your chakras are caused by traumas that aren’t fully released. Whether this emotional build-up is recent or twenty years old, the healing process is the same. Resolve the denial of buried thoughts and feelings by becoming more self-aware and getting to know the truth about you.
Telling the truth is an act of love – love for yourself, for your life, and for all those you love. The lies used to hide your truth sit inside you like a time bomb; the sooner you are willing to dismantle the lies, the sooner you can heal. One very effective technique for beginning to recognize your truth is to give yourself a reading with chakra cards. The cards provide you with a personal, specific-to-you message to guide you as you write your truth in a journal.
Here are 3 simple steps for using chakra cards:
- Hold the cards in your hand to let them absorb your energy. Shuffle the deck well, fan it out face down and pick a card at random.
- Answer the question posed on this card in your journal. Explore and expand your thoughts on the subject, without self-editing. This will help you integrate all the parts of yourself, including what you’ve hidden or repressed, which is the first step in healing both your psyche and your body.
- Note the color on the card you are using. The cards are color-coded to correspond to the 7 major energy centers, chakras, in the body. This will help focus your energy on the areas that are most in need of healing. The cards offer suggestions for rebalancing that chakra.
Used in conjunction with the chakra cards, your journal can become a powerful tool to enhance self-discovery. Be completely truthful in your journal. Say it like it is. If you are angry, be angry. The point is to be authentic. When you can trust yourself to be truthful on the pages of your journal, you can trust yourself to be truthful in the world. Just watch how your whole body relaxes as you express your truth. You’ve given yourself permission to be you – to speak your mind, to give voice to the truth of who you are.
The act of expressing your deepest thoughts and feelings – your desires and regrets, your fears and insecurities, your joys and your heartbreaks is not always easy but truly vital for your wellbeing. As you bring these issues to the surface, they lose their power over you and open up space for you to create the life of your dreams. When you write about your emotions, it releases them from your body and prevents them from creating distortions and blockages in your chakras.
Thousands of years ago, the great philosophers advised us to “know thyself.” And it’s so true. The secrets we keep and the lies we tell ourselves create all of our illness and unhappiness. To know yourself, you must constantly be in the mind-set of self-reflection to figure out how you feel about all that has happened to you in the past and everything that is happening to you right now. You’ll start to be in touch with your feelings moment to moment and keep your energy flowing freely.
