EXPLORE with GABBY

Last week we focused on the first chakra, Muladhara. The first chakra is your foundation. Starting at the root this chakra’s element is earth. The energy and focus of the root chakra is grounding, stability, security and abundance. 

Working our way up the spine, you will notice they each work together and intertwine. For example, in the first chakra, we learned to ground, stabilize and focus. In the second chakra we start to balance the heaviness from the energy of the root chakra with flow and a sense of letting go. When our second chakras are balanced we allow ourselves to be fully present and to authentically express our emotions in healthy ways. 

Second Chakra: svadisthana chakra (Sacral Chakra)

Hello there Beautiful!

 

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have been very busy settling into my new home, town and getting grounded so I apologize for the delay in chakra posts. I like to do thorough research and reading before I rant about everything I learned about that particular chakra. Therefore, the next post about the sacral chakra will be published later this week :) But….. this post is dedicated to l o v e

 

Today and everyday: love yourself. Loving yourself is not selfish. Loving yourself actually makes life easier and more enjoyable for everyone else around you.

 

Take a moment, think about the things that bother you about people or the judgement we find ourselves making each day. Have you ever thought tha...

 Hello everyone! Thank you in advance for coming back to my blog and reading this upcoming post. I apologize for the delay! Today I am going to talk about and breakdown the first chakra: Muladhara (root) Chakra. Thinking to what this post is about, the delay makes perfect sense to me. The root chakra is all about being grounded. Being grounded in this sense means being present and aware. We are often functioning with the victim mentality. It’s tough to get rid of the ego’s subconscious thought: “Why me?” Or, “Why not me?”

 

 

 

Balancing the first chakra means going to the places that scare you, sitting there, breathing, feeling your physical body, fearlessly feeling your feelings, rather than running away and hiding. 

 

A health...

Hello everyone! Happy Friday :) 

In yoga, there is so much to learn about! Lately, I have found myself intrigued with our chakra system. You may be asking yourself, "what in the world is a chakra system?" Well, today I am going to spill all that I know about these wonderful, spinning energy wheels, the chakras. 

Chakra literally translates to "wheel" or disk". Chakras were discovered in Asia at least 2500 years ago. No, you don't have to travel to India to learn about chakras and reap the benefits of this knowledge. While welcoming this knowledge into your life, it simply requires you to remain open in your mind and heart. It's okay if you have never heard of them! Take time for YOU and delve into the chakra system while gaining t...

Hello everyone! Today I will be blogging and sharing ideas/research I have done regarding Aromatherapy.

I love essential oils! From the comfort I feel when wearing and smelling clove to the instant energy boost I get when smelling some peppermint oil, it often feels magical. I promise you, there is science behind these heavenly smell goods!

Essential Oils are seen as "a gentle, non-invasive natural healing art" that utilizes the scent of essential oils to promote general well-being. Did you know the use of scent to alter and enhance health and well-being has been around for centuries? Science has confirmed that scents have the ability promote good physical, mental, and spiritual health. 

I understand it can be a bit overwhelmi...
