How often do you show and tell your authentic self to the world? So often in this modern world of social media we only share the good stuff, which is really not a true depiction of our whole selves and what we think and feel and have to say. My prediction is that there will be ever-increasing numbers of people with emotional, mental and physical issues that stem from imbalance in the Throat chakra, which is the energy centre associated with Truth - being authentic, being open and making decisions. The Throat is the 5th Chakra out of 7 – the 7 main energy centres that we all have, and where our bodies (on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) are especially open to receiving energy. The areas of the physical body where throat chakra imbalances manifest are: Throat and thyroid conditions Thyroid conditions Fast or slow metabolism and weight management issues Very large or very small appetite Very large or very small mouth Regular indigestion and/ or bad breath Super fast or super slow eating style Ear and nose problems Heightened or reduced senses of taste, smell, or hearing Problems with teeth or jaw (including TMJ pain) Neck pain Dry, chapped lips In the video I discuss other personality, mental and emotional signs of throat chakra imbalance, as well as ways that you can bring balance back

We're up to the Heart in my series of Blogs about balancing your Chakras - the 7 main energy centres that we all have, and where our bodies (on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) are especially open to receiving energy. We must first love ourselves before we can love others in any sustainable way but if we are constantly giving our love away to others we often don’t have enough left for ourselves. This is why balance in the heart chakra is essential. The heart chakra is the air element energy centre and develops during the fourth decade of life, the 30s – when it is common for people to partner up, settle down and start their own families. The areas of the physical body where heart chakra imbalances manifest are: heart conditions, including abnormal heart rate asthma, and other respiratory conditions generalised anxiety sleep apnea lung conditions poor circulation hot or cold hands blood pressure issues breast problems, including lumps and cancers and conditions affecting the arms and hands. In the video I discuss other personality, mental and emotional signs of heart chakra imbalance, as well as ways that you can bring balance back again.

This is the third of my Blogs focusing on the holistic health view Chakras and this one is all about the 3rd Chakra - the solar plexus energy centre - which governs our overall sense of Power, Energy and Balance.💥💛🍋🌞 If you would prefer to read the full piece instead of, or as well as, watching the video, it was published by Sivana East. We have 7 main energy centres in the body. These energy centres operate on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Different systems call the energy centres different names, but almost all traditional systems of medicine recognise these energy centres as well as other minor energy centres, and energy pathways. In my practice I refer to the energy centres as the Chakras – which comes from the Indian tradition. Many energy healers work with the Chakras. Chakras are areas where the body is very open to receiving energy, from all sources. When it becomes imbalanced the flow of energy into the chakra is depleted or even prevented. Each chakra governs and works with specific areas of physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. To get your FREE copy of my Chakra Balancing Ebook click here. Balance in any of the Chakras works on a spectrum, so if you can relate to extremes in any of these areas you may have an imbalanced 3rd Chakra: how energetic you feel in

I also cover some simple steps to take to reduce the risk of mould becoming a problem in your home: Open up: open doors and windows as often as possible, fresh moving air is the enemy of mould! Clean regularly: vacuum and dust, change linens Dehumidify: if you live in a humid climate, or your home has been diagnosed as damp, a dehumidifier will help to reduce the moisture build up that mould loves Indoor plants: plants naturally remove toxins from the air, and of course they also produce oxygen so they will make a big improvement on the quality of the air in your home (or workplace) Use essential oils: NB. definitely do not use artificial air fresheners – they are literally adding toxins into your surroundings by masking unpleasant smells with chemicals. Tea tree oil is anti-fungal and has a beautiful fresh aroma, it is literally

Have you ever wondered how and why undertaking energetic ‘healing’ practices actually does work? A couple of weeks ago it was National Science Week and I was celebrating the fact that for the first time in 10 years I didn’t have to oversee a primary school science fair project! Sometimes I hate my kids growing up but not in this regard! Anyway to mark the occasion I thought that it might be useful to give everyone a bit of a refresher on the science behind my two favourite tools for energetic balance – reiki and aromatherapy. Basically it comes down to understanding that everything is energy. This is basic physics and the stuff that Einstein ‘discovered’. It can be hard to get our heads around the fact that even those things that we think of as ‘solid’ are in fact all made up of minute and constantly moving particles of energy. That includes us human beings! When becoming a reiki practitioner I was trained and attuned to tap into the energy that is all around us all of the time. It makes total sense that if you can tap into more of the stuff that we are all made of and direct it to where you are lacking in energy, wellness or balance, you will feel better! Think of it like any other ‘gap filler’ – when you have to mend
