I’m very active when it comes to my preventative health habits — daily exercise, a multi-vitamins, consuming lots of veggies (even juicing them), a yearly girly exam, yoga and meditation.
As a mother, I spend a lot of time and energy on my kids’ health:
- I give (force feed at times) my children their vitamins and vegetables daily
- Bedtime is 8 pm to ensure proper sleep (even if I have to chain them to their bedposts
- I try to keep their sugar intake low and get them active (sometimes that requires hiding the cable cord and chasing their lazy butts around the kitchen island).
But what about the health of their chakras? And what the heck is a chakra, you ask? Chakras are our energy centers. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. They are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions.
When I began yoga about 4 years ago, it changed my life for the better. My stress was reduced, my body was stronger, leaner and more flexible, and my health overall was remarkably better. Through my yoga instructor, I was introduced to the term chakras and how to keep them balanced. I make that a daily health practice too. If you are wondering more about how that is done, check out the About site.
When the book, A Children’s Guide to Chakras by Susan Marek came my way and I found it was a great way to teach my kids about chakras and how to care for them. My 8 and 10 year old loved reading it and I think even younger kids will enjoy it too. If you want an easy way to intorduce your kids to new ways of holistic healing, get the book at Amazon…
