I recently talked about myself being an empath since birth. I no longer see medical treatment as the one and only answer to health issues. I am realizing that working on the mind and emotions have everything to do with how healthy we are. So now that I'm back to working on myself, a cleansing process is going on. And through this cleansing many epiphanies keep coming up. The one in particular I'm going to talk about today is self-love and acceptance. Why? From an energetic body standpoint, lack of those things within oneself directly affects the heart chakra and solar plexus.
The heart chakra is the energetic center connected to the immune system and the solar plexus (also known as the celiac plexus) is the energetic center connected to our sense of self-acceptance, self-esteem and personal power or lack thereof. When it is blocked, we feel powerless and victimized.
What Are Chakras?
According to Hindu or Buddhist tradition, our seven chakras or energy centers are within your 'aura' going down the center, or hara line of your body. Now, I am not Hindu nor Buddhist, just like I also believe in the meridians of the body yet I'm not Chinese or Japanese. Different cultures and traditions have something different to teach according to their own healing methods and there is no need to believe in their religious teachings to understand elements that are not yet integrated into Western medicine. The medical community does, however, acknowledge acupuncture, which is quickly becoming a recommended form of therapy for various ailments and conditions; so much so that it is usually even covered by insurance! There is even a style of acupuncture known as esoteric acupuncture which integrates chakra healing into it's discipline.
synesthesia usually have experiences with seeing or perceiving auras, too. From my experiences, I've noticed that due to the deep connection empaths have to emotions and the energy of others, many of them have these or similar abilities as well. I've realized recently I have synesthesia; I've always been able to see music as color and vice versa, so whenever I hear a song, I see specific colors in my head depending upon the keynote. I also can hear energy as well. I used to actually freak out my parents by knowing who was coming down the stairs because ever since I was young, when it was my mom, I would hear this high-pitched, twinkling sound like little bells and with my dad I would hear this heavy, large, low tone, kind of the hollow, low sound I look for when I knock on watermelons for the best one (haha now you won't ever buy a bad watermelon ever again!).
