Crown Chakra (#7)

[Scottsdale Healing Touch shares...]

Are you feeling light headed and floating through your day? Do you run the "what ifs" throughout your day (what if I fall, what if I get hit by a car, what if I die). Anxiety is a feature of fear and without feeling divinely connected the anxiety levels skyrocket and push you upward so far that headaches are frequent and some experience dizziness or vertigo.

The positive connection to the highest chakra is the connection to the Divine. God, Jesus, Archangels, Buddha, whatever terminology feels comfortable to you. For some Nature is their Divine connection (like famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright - did you know Amy is a former tour guide at Taliesin West).

We are all Divinely driven at different points in life, some more than others. Let's find the balance for you that makes you comfortable. Pick a statement below and repeat it throughout your day.

Crown chakra affirmations
I feel connected with other beings, with heaven and earth, the whole of Universe
I know and I understand
I am one with the Divine
I am grounded on earth and connected with heavens
I understand deeper truth and connection
I experience, peace, love, and joy
I honor the divine in me and in others
I am at peace
I am

Third Eye Chakra (#6)

[Scottsdale Healing Touch shares....]

As children we have our "imaginary friends" and we talk with them, play teacher to them and as we get older we are told to stop it and not do that.

As an adult we have a tendency to lose track of our "friends" who were there for us so frequently. We each have so much guidance within us but this third eye can get blocked or fuzzy. We learned yesterday about the throat chakra and with that being directly below the third eye - how many times have you been to a spiritual event singing (a rock concert, church, kirtan) and left "buzzing" from this "high" of vocalizing the songs. Then that night you have the most amazing dreams. Congratulations on having a spiritual experience and opening your third eye!

Sixth Chakra Affirmations (third eye):
My life moves with grace
I use my intuition wisely
I see connections and the deeper truth
I have deep sense of knowing everything I need to know
I see challenges in my life with great clarity
I learn from the challenges in my life, they are spiritual lessons
I open myself to the wisdom of elders
I love and accept myself
I can consciously create my life

Voice Chakra (#5)

[Scottsdale Healing Touch sharing ...]

Do you find yourself swallowing quite a bit and unsure if you should say something? Do you enjoy to sing but found that you aren't as much as you use to?

Let's talk about your throat, your voice, for a moment. We are in an expressive time right now and for some it can be scary. But speaking your truth is something that being taught from a young age has been instilled into Amy.

Also ponder that old phrase, "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never do so." That is also not a true statement. Words toward yourself and words toward others is something that can be very hurtful. Teaching your children from a young age to speak truthful and from a space of kindness will impact so many over the decades.

Throat chakra affirmations
I express myself clearly and in a healthy way
I speak my truth
I feel safe to express myself
I think before I speak
I live in truth
I listen with the ear of my heart
I listen to my intuition
I can say "no" when I need to
I am peaceful, tranquil, and serene
I love myself and I express my love for others

Heart Chakra (#4)

[Scottsdale Healing Touch sharing ...]

Healing Touch is an energy based modality that aligns the seven chakras. The reality is we are in charge of our own life, what we feel and think. However things happen; surgeries, an injury, a concussion, verbal abuse that "attack" our outer layers of of energy fields. Until we can start to heal those outer layers the inner [HeartFelt] Center of compassion won't have the ability to heal, forgive or rejoice.

Heart chakra affirmations to feel full of love:
I allow myself to feel my tender heart
I surrender and let go of fear
I open myself to deep self love
I feel embraced by the love of the Universe
I open myself to healthy and nurturing relationships
We are all One

Have these been more of your words:
I can't find Peace
Forgiveness is not in my vocabulary
I don't have (money, relationships, guidance)
I am so alone
Why do they do that (and fill in the judgemental blank)

Solar Plexus Chakra (#3)

[Scottsdale Healing Touch sharing ...]

Moving upward now to the 3rd Chakra (wheel) that deals with our Power/Will. If out of balance the following statement will be true.

Solar plexus chakra:
My body is weak
I have been told I am rigid and controlling
Everything is your fault, not mine

How would you like to make these statements instead:
I sense that everything is a lesson on my spiritual journey
I create my own life
I feel connected to greater life
Just by being, I am valuable
I deeply and completely love and accept myself
I have the courage to be myself
My power is in the gentleness of my soul

Sacral Chakra (#2)

[Scottsdale Healing Touch sharing ...]

How does a hose with a kink in it get water out the nozzle?

It doesn't! Just like a blocked Chakra (wheel).

If any of these statements resonant with you please connect with Amy of Scottsdale Healing Touch to book your Healing Touch session to get on the road to feeling and participating in a good life.

Sacral chakra:
I can't express my feelings
I hate my body
I am in the rabbit hole of thoughts spiraling down
I am in touch with my feelings
I don't know who I am anymore
I never get time for me (and if I do I feel guilty)
I never share how I feel to anyone
I drink myself numb to deal with my pain
I use to be creative
I am so angry

Root Chakra (#1)

[Scottsdale Healing Touch sharing ...]

Ponder a moment and ask yourself, how safe do I feel in my body?

How strong does your body and mind feel?

What does “being grounded” mean to you?

Healing Touch is an energy based modality developed by a nurse, supporting patients pre & post Op. You don't have to be in a hospital to enjoy the benefits of Healing Touch. The balancing of your energy centers supports your growth and healing of past situations.

Root chakra affirmations:
I am safe
I love my life
I allow myself to be in the present moment, right here, right now
I have everything I need
I am open to new ideas
I am here, here in my body, and all is well
I am aware of my thoughts, feelings, and body in the present moment
I am grounded and connected to the earth
I trust myself
I am open to new ways of thinking
I embrace change
I love myself
I let go of my past
I am

You Deserve Time for YOU!

As we are about to enter into a New Year - 2018 is going to be about being held accountable.  We all know life happens and things change, but in my 13 years living in Arizona this state has proven to me it doesn't believe in following through.  I have been in the Interior Design industry, the Sustainable Building Industry and the Yoga Industry.  It doesn't matter if it is a professional or personal.  Everyone has an excuse.  I think the older I get the less patience I have toward tardiness and lack of respect in meetings and events.   I know Arizona is a casual environment, however Patanjali's 8 Limbs of Yoga will be an integral part of our classes in 2018. 

So my way to help you be held accountable to attending your yoga classes .... doing a Series Format.  Meaning ... you sign up for the same class every week and you come in knowing you have a space and the time to enjoy your practice!   It also means that we are going to be building on the classes each week and learning more about yoga philosophy (as stated above about Patanjali's 8 Limbs of Yoga) in addition to postures (asanas).  We will also start to review some of the Yoga Sutras and have a better understanding of Yoga as a whole - wholistic approach.  

You can have the option to sign up for once a week for a month, twice a week for a month AND IF you sign up with a buddy you will save some money and be held accountable from them as well.  Maybe you will have a carpool buddy or having someone be there with a friendly smile as you start your yoga practice.

This way, I don't have to hear "I wanted to come but..."

Formats will be created each month and you can attend your format by selecting an intermediate level or Yin/Restorative level or whatever seems to be on schedule for the month. 

The other bonus is ... drum roll please ... classes will be 75 minutes long!   That's right, you earned that 15 minute Savasana -- so take it!    I am going back to my roots in teaching from 20 years ago and this disciplined format will be of great love to you ... I promise! 

You will be posted on the new schedule coming up for January 2018 and in the meantime, know that you are worth it to take some time out of your busy schedule to keep on track!
