Someday we’ll find it, the chakra connection…the lovers, the dreamers, and me.
Most recently I’ve been journeying my way up the chakra rainbow, and quite perhaps, unwaveringly throughout my entire life! Acknowledgement and awareness of the connection between the endocrine system and our chakras had been “healized” during my studies as a yogi at a teacher training program I’d attended in 2016.
At the time, the best way I knew how to translate this discovery was through yoga. Or through creating art/photography, and then it turned into eating certain foods or herbs/spices, as well as feeling/seeing and wearing the correlating colors.
Just living it…
To this day, and forever, I am expressing gratitude towards that tribe and to the ones who helped complete my vision– a photography project and sort of, basic guide of yoga asanas/poses
I’d like to note that these poses are only few of many chakra specific balancing and self healing techniques out in the world available to us now ❤
So far I’ve done a bit of inner work, and self-healization with time through the following;
- Manipura– the solar plexus chakra
- Svadhisthana– the sacral chakra
- Muladhara– the root chakra
**FUTURE POST: a more in depth look into the chakras perhaps?
But for now…
I’m sharing my love of all things solar plexus.
All things yellow, with the intention of balancing agni, our inner fire. To balance digestively & mentally in the sense of consuming foods like turmeric, ginger, lemon, sunshine, etc…
Below is one of my all time favorite recipes I enjoy making in place of chai, or as a nice warm beverage or before bed. This super golden yellow beverage is harmonized with spices and love that is also GOOD for you.
- 2 c. oat-milk
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- a pinch of black pepper
- 2-3 drops pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1-2 cinnamon sticks
- 4-6 fresh ground cloves
- 1 tbsp real maple syrup *optional
Place all ingredients into a small pot, slowly stir over medium-high heat with an intention. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Stir, serve warm and be in joy.
Let me know if you make this recipe!
