The Brow or Third Eye Chakra is located in the center of the forehead just above the eye brows and is about insight and visualization.  This is where our inner wisdom is housed.  The Brow Chakra is related to our ability to see and focus on the big picture. When this chakra is open and balanced we have good intuition, experience overall good health, clear thinking and it allows us to see beyond our physical existence. If our Brow Chakra is unbalanced,  we can experience problems with fatigue, day dreaming, sleep problems, and confusion.  With an over active Brow Chakra one could immerse in a world of fantasy and even experience hallucinations.

Here are some of the benefits when applying pressure to acupoint Heart 7 also referred to as “Spirit Gate”.  It calms the heart and mind, helps with insomnia.  If you are one that wakes often during the night, try rubbing with light pressure Heart 7.  This acupoint also is used for anxiety, fear and nausea.  The location is on the outside edge of the wrist crease closest to the palm.  It is in the hollow area in line with the little finger (see red dot on photo).  It is best to turn the palm upwards and support the wrist in the fingers of the opposite hand.  Locate Heart 7 with the thumb and apply pressure.  Can also do circular  motion with thumb.  Remember to repeat acupressure on the other wrist.

The healing powers of the Garnet family of multiple colors are guidance, protection, purification and warmth.  We are going to look at the Red and Green Garnets.  The Red Garnets represents love, connecting to the Heart, Crown and Root Chakra.  The Red Garnet stimulates sexuality, promotes trust, understanding, sincerity and honesty to a relationship.  The Red Garnet is said to provide balance, inspires creativity and also controls self anger.

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.

Have you used one today to say

“Thank you”?

februaryattendtotheheartwithswans1.  Spend five minutes at the beginning of each day

remembering that we all want the same thing;

to be happy, to be loved, and to feel connected.

2.  Spend five minutes cherishing yourself and others.

Let go of judgments.  Breathe in cherishing yourself,

       and breathe out cherishing others.

If the faces of people you are having trouble with appear,

cherish them as well.

                                                     3.  During the day, extend that attitude to everyone you meet -

                                                      we are all the same – with “I cherish myself and you too

                                                        (the store clerk, the client, a family member, a coworker,

                                                       a fellow bus-rider).”

                                                       4.  Stay in the practice no matter what happens!

                                                        (Disarmingly simple, though not necessarily easy.)
