Tune Up Your Naval Chakra and Get Happy!

Tune Up Your Naval Chakra and Get Happy!


The very purpose of life is to live happy. The Dalai Lama once stated: " The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is your sense of well-being." So why do so many people walk around looking "Unhappy?" Well, I am sure there is a laundry list of reasons why people will tell you they are not happy but the simple fact remains we all have a choice to be happy. It is simply how we decide to view daily circumstances.

Why not take an assertive position in choosing the path of happiness by tuning up your naval chakra? This is the portal most associated with pleasure and simple joys in life. It is the area of the body that initiates movement - whether that movement comes in the form of belly laughter, dancing, or being intimate with that special person in your life.

Start Your Engines:

One of the easiest things you can do to awaken this chakra is to put on those dancing shoes. That's right, kick back and let it all hang out. Even if your dancing shoes are the bedroom slippers, the idea is to let go and let your inner child get moving.

Connect and feel safe in doing your thing by tapping into your foundation. What do I mean by "your foundation?" Know your roots, where you come from, and what you stand for. Here are some simple ways to tap into your roots:

  • Pull out the old family photos and have a good laugh over the clothes or hairstyle you were sporting.
  • Get to know YOU again. When that happens you feel safe to get your groove on.
  • Engage in standing yoga poses and feel your feet lock into the stability of the earth.
  • Go for a walk in nature and find a few interesting stones and place them in your home.

Awaken Joy:

Something as simple as the choice of color or perfume scent you choose is a powerful way to change your mood. Wearing playful colors like different hues of orange or making your own perfume using Neroli essential oil is a great way to awaken and clear this playful chakra. And don't forget to sign up for a laughing yoga class. These classes are hysterical! You can't help but be happy when everyone around you can't stop laughing.

Don't forget to check your surrounding environment too. The west is all about childlike bliss so make sure in this direction of your home you have images that bring joy to your life. Adding accents of metal and earth elements will naturally elevate the area of creative joy within your home. FOr more about creating peace and joy in your environment click here.

So the next time you are feeling down and ready to throw that pity party, think again. Throw the party alright but check the frowns at the front door. Roll out your yoga mat and roll around instead. Or if you're really feeling silly, just sing your favorite song as if you are the star of the show!
