Chakras are energy centres, spinning wheels of light. The outside world is a reflection of our inner world and chakras act as energy vortexes, giving energy out and drawing energy back to us as. With our heart balanced and open, love flows out and back to us.
When any of our chakras are out of balance this affects us energetically, emotionally and physically. The body is a whole, and balancing one chakra will positively affect the other chakras, especially when it’s the heart we are supporting. We think of the brain as the control centre of the body, but I believe that the heart is the main centre, and so did the lovely Rumi who said;
“God is within your Heart. Look into your Heart. All the answers you need are already hiding inside of you.”
The heart chakra is located in the chest and is the bridge between the lower chakras and higher chakras. It is the love, and therefore healing, chakra.
Signs it is unbalanced can include jealousy, codependency, feeling needy, unhealthy boundaries, empathy and relationships, fear of getting hurt, as well as physical ailments such as poor circulation, heart and lung conditions and lowered immunity. The physical manifestation of dis-eases associated with the heart chakra tend to be linked to emotions such as sadness and grief. Depression and numbness can occur when we are not listening to ourselves, possibly we have barricaded our heart in fear of getting hurt. The following high vibration, pure oils can support our heart chakra to blossom:
Lavendar, Chamomile, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Angelica, Hyssop, Melissa, Frankincense, Neroli, Eucalyptos, Geranium, Marjoram, Lime, Peppermint, Rose, Thyme, Tea Tree, Ylang Ylang
Choose whichever you feel drawn to, breathe in and rub clockwise onto your chest.
Make sure all of your essentials oils are diluted in 5 ml grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil (avoid this if you suffer from nut allergy) use 2 drops of essential oil.
A balanced heart chakra brings us acceptance, forgiveness, unconditional love, compassion and peace. Anahata in Sanskrit means unhurt, unstuck and unbeaten.
Nurture each chakra and in turn the whole, to align and become your greatest version.

We are starting anew each present moment, but come the spring, this can feel intensified. As we transform with the seasons and leave the winter, it may feel like a time for warming and loosening up, decluttering on the inside and outside, letting go of our past and basking in the light. Clutching onto unforgiveness can keep us trapped in the world of the ego and it’s illusion of separation. A much more self loving choice could be to fully support your your being to do it’s spring clean this year. You will find loads of valuable content and tools in our online interactive course The Art of Self Healing Through Self Love, which took us on a journey of strengthening our presence practice, increasing our clarity and deepening forgiveness, as we created it.

Forgiveness really is such a key step to healing. Let’s clear ourselves from the emotions trapped in our bodies by forgiving ourselves and others.
If we do, our livers, hearts, along with the whole, will be beaming this spring.
Let’s celebrate with Rumi:
Spring Giddiness ,
Today, like every other day, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.
I would love to kiss you.
The price of kissing is your life.
Now my loving is running toward my life shouting,
What a bargain, let’s buy it.
Daylight, full of small dancing particles
and the one great turning, our souls
are dancing with you, without feet, they dance.
Can you see them when I whisper in your ear?
All day and night, music,
a quiet, bright
reedsong. If it
fades, we fade.
Celebration of the spring is a perfect time to invite the energy of forgiveness to our life to let go and start a new. Simona recorded this beautiful healing affirmations you can listen to and repeat after her in your morning or evening meditation or anytime you feel is needed. Have a beautiful and healing spring <3

“The miracle of life expresses itself in motion and movement....” ~ Rolin E Becker
Yoga, tai chi and dance are just a few forms of exercise we can use to raise our vibration and restore balance. Life and health are vibration; movement. A disconnection from nature and a sedentary lifestyle has become the norm in the modern world. Get your physical body, emotions and energy in motion. Exercise has been proven to greatly improve health and happiness. Exercise leads to more effective circulation and oxygenation and further benefits fluid health by supporting lymph drainage too.
The lymphatic system plays an important role in immunity, delivering nutrients and removing toxins. One of the key benefits of exercise is stimulating lymphatic drainage. The lymphatic system is most active at night. The thoracic duct, located in your chest, is the largest lymph duct. Get it moving in the morning with some breast strokes, press-ups, T’ai Chi, yoga, yawning, laughing, deep breathing. Walk a minimum of 20 minutes a day and use massage regularly. As do sugar and animal protein, congestion of lymphatic system leads to stagnation and an acidic low oxygen environment. Keep that interstitial fluid drained.
Movement is essential to detoxification. You excrete toxins in perspiration. As well as your lymphatic system, moving massages your colon. The liver becomes more efficient at carrying out its many functions including detoxification. Exercise keeps our bodies stronger and suppler and helps us feel better about ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally. Strengthen yourself to thrive.
Exercise reduces factors such as stress and pain, and increases ones such as discipline, self worth and energy levels. Exercise stimulates your immune system unless you overdo it. Avoid too little or too much exercise, as too much exercise can prove stressful to the body. Exercise uses blood sugar and decreases insulin levels. It massages your visceral organs, improving their function. You gain a stronger more efficient heart and lungs and you start to use much more of your lung capacity.
Regularity of exercise is more important than quantity. Light daily exercise is best. Just half an hour a day can make a huge difference. Movement encourages positive changes in you at a physical, emotional, mental and energetic level. Choose yoga, t’ai chi, qigong, martial arts, stretching, walking to restore rhythms... any exercise is good. Yoga has multiple benefits. It encourages a healthy mind, and flow, the release of emotional and physical toxins, unblocks chakras, improves your breathing, posture, supports your immune, circulatory and lymphatic systems. Or, maybe go for a peaceful stroll through nature, during which worrying is forbidden and you are grounded in the present, aware of the sensations in your body, the warmth of the sun and breathing fresh air. Breathing all of nature’s energy into your heart on every inspiration and gratitude on every out breath. With every step you are moving forward.
