Hello everyone,

Balance has become such a "buzz" word these days. The balance between family life and work, having a balanced portfolio, balance in decor and cuisine are even part of our world.

What we often fail to realize is that ancient cultures have been talking about balance since the beginning of time. Only now are we beginning to recognize these traditions as practices which can guide us to true "Balance", if only we are open enough to receive their gifts. The concept is easy to understand, but getting there and achieving true balance takes considerable time and effort.

Through these articles, I try to bring a sense of awareness to our subscribers, and ask only that you think about what I am presenting. Some of the concepts and topics may be foreign to you, and some may even be hard to believe. But I encourage you to keep an open mind, and if there are bits and pieces along the way that you feel you can integrate into your life, all the better. Give it a try and see where the knowledge leads you!

Thanks for reading!


The Chakras

Ancient Vedic texts tell us of the "Chakra" system, which describes energy centers within the body. These energy centers are aligned with the spinal column in seven major points. Each Chakra is associated with different areas of the body and is assigned a corresponding color.

The first, or Base Chakra, is located at the base of the spine and is associated with the color red. The main functions associated with this chakra are stability, energy distribution, practicality and physical survival. It is believed that the base Chakra is linked to the adrenal glands.

The second, or Sacral Chakra, is on the area of the body just below the navel. It is represented by the color orange and controls the functions of exploration, emotions, creativity and libido.

Just below the ribcage sits the Solar Plexus Chakra, the third of seven. Its color is yellow and it is said to be responsible for personal power, self-esteem and sense of identity. This Chakra relates to the spleen and the pancreas.

Fourth is the Heart Chakra, appropriately located in the center of the chest, and linked to the heart and thymus gland. It is green in color and controls relationships, direction and personal development.

The fifth Chakra is found at the throat near the thyroid glands. Blue in color, it relates to communication and personal expression.

The Brow Chakra (sometimes called the third eye) is in the center of the brow. It is indigo in color and is linked to the pituitary glands. The Brow Chakra is concerned with knowledge, understanding, perception and mental organization.

The final Chakra, the Crown, is at the top of the head and is symbolized by the color violet. The Crown Chakra has ultimate importance as it maintains overall balance of the chakra system and controls the channelling of energy into this system. It is responsible for creating a sense of wholeness, and stimulates intuition and inspiration.

When even one of the seven Chakras becomes disrupted either from excess stimulation or inactivity, the effect is profound, and malfunctioning of the remaining Chakras begins to occur. In order to be whole and healthy on a physical, emotional and spiritual level it is said that all of the Chakras need to be balanced.

Now for the hard part. If an imbalance exists, achieving total health requires that you determine the root cause, and remedy it! This is easy to say, hard to do, but in the end (well, before the end preferably!) achieving synchronicity is the most rewarding goal you can imagine. So, dedicate the time - you're worth it!

Just in time for Summer - The Chakratee!

The cap sleeve Chakratee is available in white with your choice of one of four brightly coloured chakras on the front.
