• How your Chakra energy could be affecting your Financial freedom

    Your chakras and your money: how your chakra energy could be affecting your Financial freedom. Too many people think yoga and money seem incompatible, but when you start to look at currency as an emotional exchange,
    as a current of energy, you can understand the direct correlation between them.

    What do you do when you feel stressed about money? Do you go to yoga? Do you meditate? If you think about the last time you had a stressful financial situation, how did you react, what did you do? Sadly, you cannot change your thoughts about money until you learn what the causes of your financial issues are. On the bright side, with reflection, yoga, and meditation, your opinions and feelings toward your money will reveal themselves and this knowledge will help you take the necessary steps towards repairing your relationship with your finances and how we face them. Understanding how your chakras directly align with your relationship to your money and finances will help you gain clear perspective into the issues that may be haunting you. Lets look at each chakra and how they each affect your financial picture.

    Root Chakra:
    The First Chakra is associated with feelings of “enough” either too much or too little. In Financial situations someone who is seeded into their first chakra, may experience a sense of greed, not because they don’t want to help others; but because they possibly live in a fear that they will run out. These people have perhaps lived a childhood of lack. Somewhere in their childhood, they vowed they would never lack anything ever again; So they have worked their entire lives building and amassing things, maybe even to the point where they are hoarding objects and money. Think extreme penny pinchers.

    Sacral Chakra:
    When your Second Chakra energy is out of sync, you can feel tired and blocked creatively. Maybe you hear someone discussing new ideas and business strategies and you say to yourself, “I wish I could come up with a million dollar idea!” Although, the second chakra is not necessarily associated with creative thinking, it is the logic and feeling behind the comment. That of which, you feel you cannot create the life you want. “Something” is blocking you from being successful in business or creating personal success.

    Solar Plexus Chakra:
    A block in your Third Chakra can hurt your financial situation because this will manifest into a pile of bills to review that you haven’t looked at. You become stuck because you just don’t want to “do” it now. You have become a procrastinator. You may be putting off paying off debt, calling for that refund you are owed, or maybe even to get a discount on a service.

    Heart Chakra:
    The Fourth Chakra is obviously associated with love, and feelings, but how does love correlate to finance? Well, it’s not love of money if that’s what you are thinking. The Anahata is the energy that allows emotional purchases to happen. For example: A woman sees an amazing pair of shoes and says, “I love these.”  She buys them even though she has six pairs just like them.

    Throat Chakra:
    The Fifth Chakra is crucial here, It’s important that you feel comfortable enough to ask for help when you are in some sort financial trouble, or even if you feel like you are going down the wrong money path. No one is perfect and admitting you have some financial sloppiness is the first step in aligning all the other chakras; as well as your financial well-being. A healthy throat chakra is signified by how openly and honestly a person expresses themselves with their truth.

    Third Eye Chakra:
    The Sixth Chakra is the energy responsible for intuition and the clear visualization of financial abundance. Spending wisely and using your money in a way to help others. People are notorious about not trusting their intuition when it comes to money matters. They read countless articles, fact check, run the figures, and then hire a “professional” just to put their trust in the hands of others. Trust your Third eye.  This is where you can manifest the things you want and need into your life.

    Crown Chakra:
    When your Seventh Chakra is balanced, you see everything clearly. You function and make decisions with a sense of neutrality; meaning you are concerned, but not attached to any single outcome.  You know you will be OK, no matter what. You learn to ultimately recognize your inner guide and allow it to show you the truth in all your financial choices.

  • Visual, Aural, or Kinesthetic

    We see with our eyes, we hear with our ears, we feel with our bodies. What we have discovered is that everybody usually has one primary intake pathway, and that affects how they receive information.

    So, what do I mean by that? What I know they have learned in polarity therapy is that we all have different intake pathways.  We see with our eyes, we hear with our ears, we feel with our bodies. What we have discovered is that everybody usually has one primary intake pathway, and that affects how they receive information.

    For example, I am almost completely aural, I live through my ears. It is one of the reasons why I write books.  How this translates in business is when I started working with clients, because I do not need to write stuff down to remember it. I would assume that my client was writing something down while I was talking, that he or she was not listening to me. So, I would take away their pen. Well, when you take away the pen of a kinesthetic person–because writing is how they remember, they learn through their body–now they cannot hear you anymore. I learned I needed to let my kinesthetic clients keep their pens.

    What I want you to think about is consider the intake pathway of the person that you are dealing with.  One way to know this, or to figure it out, is consider what they do for a living. Highly kinesthetic people really understand 3D space.  These are your chefs, your sculptors, your race car drivers.  They know what’s going on, web designers, architects, landscape design.  Highly aural people tend to work with words, again, they are your writers and your editors.  Things like that. Highly visual people, you know, they are your painters, they are your decorators.  They really see the world in a very different way than you do.

    Consider what someone’s intake pathway is, and then alter how you might give them information.  Just a simple trick is, if, you are dealing with someone who is visual, you can say to them, you know what, I see what you are saying. If you are dealing with someone who is aural, it is, like, I hear what you are saying. And if someone is highly kinesthetic, you understand what they are feeling.

  • How to find your niche

     In today’s day and age, with social media, people really want to be able to connect to you on a personal level.

    It’s really important when you’re coming into your own as a yoga teacher, is really finding your voice, and finding what it is that is authentic about you. In today’s day and age, with social media, people really want to be able to connect to you on a personal level.

    So, as you start to mirror, and you start to think about your favorite yoga teachers out there, even though they say imitation is the greatest form of flattery, you want to be able to make sure that you’re not imitating too much.  And that you’re not watering down your true essence and who you truly are.

    What I’d encourage all new yoga teachers, and even existing yoga teachers, who are maybe struggling a little bit in their practice, or in their business, is take some time to really find your niche and connect to who your favorite yoga teachers are.

    Start to ask yourself different questions:

    • What is it that you like about this particular yoga teacher?
    • Is it their cues, is it their sequence?
    • Is it the music, maybe it’s just a simple playlist?
    • Is there an emotion, or something, that is tied to the way that they speak in their classes that you connect to?

    This is a moment where you really need to start thinking about how you want to be able to incorporate that into your own practice and throughout your teaching. No matter which way it is that you try to find your niche, the most important advice that I can give any yoga teacher, and any new aspiring yoga teacher, is to be genuine, be sincere, and always be yourself.
