What role do Chakra’s play in addictions and behavioral health and how can we treat addictions and behavioral health issues by working with the body’s energy system? For starters lets look at what a “chakra” is. Wiki defines Chakras as follows, “Chakra is a concept referring to wheel-like vortices which, according to traditional Indian medicine, are believed to exist in the surface of the subtle body of living beings.] The chakras are said to be "force centers" or whorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body, the layers of the subtle bodies in an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation. Rotating vortices of subtle matter, they are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies.”
When these chakras are out of balance, either over or under active, or when they have built up toxins, the physical body will attempt to balance them through negative behavior patterns and addictions, by literally reaching out for some kind of fix. Each chakra relates to specific issues, and therefore specific addictions or behavioral patterns. By balancing each chakra and removing toxins that have built up in the energy patterns, it is possible to treat and overcome addictions and behavioral health issues Common treatments for addictions do not always entail spiritual healing, but only touch on aspects of spirituality for healing. For example, in a traditional addictions treatment program, there may be a specific group or topic of a group called something similar to spirituality for addictions. Perhaps this group would meet once per week and discuss the topic for about an hour or so. Then group parts ways and perhaps the addicted person may further discuss spirituality with an individual counselor or attend AA meetings, but that is different than actually changing the bodies energy system. With my chakra cleansing program the addicted individual is given the opportunity to heal on all levels, mind, body, and spirit in a private and safe setting. One on one energy work until balance in each chakra and the energy system as a whole is found. Removing blockages and toxins that deter healing on all three energy bodies..physical, etheric and astral… clearing what is unhealthy and replacing it with health. Health is energy with grace.
As I said above, each chakra relates to specific addictions and behavioral patterns. They are as follows:
Chakra 1 The Root Chakra: Heroin, cocaine, alcohol, work, sex, being sick or ill, accidents, exercise, cutting, sadistic or masochistic behaviors, spending, debt, milk, fat, meats
Chakra 2 The Sacral Chakra: Gluten, wheat, starchy carbs, grain based alcohol, chocolate, emotionalism
Chakra 3 The Solar Plexus Chakra: Work, perfectionism, cannabis, caffeine, carbonated beverages, corn based alcohol, beer, corn processed sugars
Chakra 4 The Heart Chakra: Ectacy, Love, smoking, sugars and sweets, toxic relationships, wine
Chakra 5 The Throat Chakra: Compulsive talking, mania, compulsive reading, overeating, smoking
Chakra 6 The Third Eye Chakra: Self hatred, poor body image, appearances, chocolate, all mood altering substances, obsessive hand washing and OCD behaviors
Chakra 7 The Crown Chakra: Uppers, downers, religion, prayer and meditation used to escape reality, depression and anxiety
You may have noticed that some of the addictions or behaviors are found in more than one chakra, so it is necessary to treat each chakra that the issue is found in. The Chakra cleansing program is for anyone who wants to overcome on not just a physical level but spiritual and emotional level as well. My personal opinion is that in traditional treatment centers, relapse is so common because only the physical and emotional bodies are being treated typically. So many issues and toxins literally get stuck in the individuals astral and etheric bodies where they “creep” back into the physical body which can then lead to relapse. The goal of this program is to offer an opportunity for holistic healing for the addicted person or for the person with negative thought or behavioral patterns.
Why Try Reiki?
The benefits of Reiki can be life changing. Gary E, Schwartz, a PhD Harvard-educated researcher, believes that energy healing will become as common as exercise on the path to improved health, happiness, and peace. He further suggests that the existence of energy fields can unlock the potential for enhancing your health based on the scientific experiments revealed in his book, Energy Healing Experiments. He believes that what we experience as diseases are manifestations of energy imbalances within our bodies. Reiki can balance that energy eliminating the formation of the disease.
Reiki is also the healing method that Mehmet Oz, a cardiovascular surgeon, introduced into the operating room at Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City during open heart and heart transplant surgeries. Reiki is a much sought-after healing art among patients and mainstream medical professionals because it has been proven that Reiki treatments help patients to heal faster with less pain or complications.
According to Andrew Weil, M.D., a world-renowned leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, "Any research that shows that a nonphysical approach can change a physical system is extremely significant in that it challenges the predominant paradigm that says only a physical intervention can produce a physical change in the system."
Breaking it down: Think of your body as a receiving and a sending station to understand how energy works. Atoms are the building block of matter that makes up all living things such as a plants, animals, the air and even you! Your body contains a variety of atoms which are composed of protons and electrons with electric energy running through them. According to Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret, each of us contain enough energy to illuminate a small city for about a week. Now just imagine for a minute that each of these atoms vibrate at a specific frequency or oscillation based on the available energy within your body. How you care for your body emotionally, physically, and mentally determines the amount of energy blockages and the amount of decreased energy frequencies or toxins that are being built in it.
Again, Reiki can remove blockages and restore you to wellness. Most people notice a difference after the first treatment. The benefits grow with each session. Here are some of the benefits of Reiki:
• Pain management
• Reduced anxiety
• Reduced depression
• Improved sleep
• Improved digestion
• Enhanced well-being
• Stronger self-esteem
• Support for substance abuse
• Accelerated surgical recovery
• Reduced side effects from radiation, chemotherapy and Rx meds
• Greater self awareness
• Greater ease and satisfaction in relationship
• Heightened intuition
Reiki can connect you to your inner self, and cleanse your whole system by system physically, mentally and emotionally. The way the flow of energy works on the body is amazing. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
Do you have a medical condition and want to feel better while supporting your health care?
Are you healthy but not sleeping well, maybe adding unwanted pounds?
Would you like to feel more engaged, more in control of your life and your health?
Do you sometimes feel isolated, hopeless to address the challenges of your life?
Do you want to develop your inner spiritual connection, on your own terms?
Are you overwhelmed with stress?
Headaches, neck pain?
If you are tired, you’ll feel refreshed. If you are anxious, you’ll feel serene. If you are distressed, you’ll feel comforted. Where you feel overwhelmed, you’ll find a renewed sense of yourself.
I encourage everyone to experience the energy of Reiki!
