Balance ~~ April OLW Blog Hop

Welcome to the One Little Word Blog Hop where members of Ali Edwards' OLW class share something about their word. On the first of each month, I’ll participate and then give you the link to the next person in line.

My One Little Word for 2012 is BALANCE.  And it's really a big word, with a lot of challenge in it.   

This month I will be focusing on balancing my seven chakras.  When one or more of our chakras fall out of balance, or fails to operate as it is designed to, essential parts of out psychic and spiritual expression become dysfunctional or shut down.

In Sonia Choquette's book, True Balance, she explains, "Our energy system governs our energetic and psychic well-being.  When our seven centers of energy are balanced, we feel feel grounded, emotionally safe, mentally in charge, receptive to love and loving, effective and creative in all forms of our expression, inspired and imaginative, and intimately connected to and guided by the universe."  

When our centers of energy are in alignment, we perform with ease.  Our thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals and values are in balance.

Every day, I am reminded that the need for balance begins in our heart and mind.  The thoughts we think of and the stories we tell shape us and act as weights, allowing us to be in or out of balance.  It is essential to be cognizant that we have the power at any moment, to change or shift any area of our life.  We can create a new or different path so that we can follow our deepest desires.  

What about you? What are your thoughts? What do you do to create balance in your life??   Do share!
