How Balancing Your Chakras Can Help Your Finances
In my view, financial wellness comes from the inside. It comes from getting aligned with the abilities that make you special, and sharing those skills with the world.
This is easier said than done, as nasty emotions like fear, anxiety and belief that we can’t do it get in the way. These emotions sit in our energy body, or chakras.
The beauty of energy is that each one of you has the power through meditation to release these icky emotions from your chakras so you can move freely towards pursuing your passion project with ease.
To understand how each chakra impacts your ability to power up your profits with purpose, see below:
First Chakra (Root Chakra): Stand your ground.
Have you ever made a solid decision when you were feeling scattered or all over the place? Probably not.
This chakra keeps you in a place of grounded self-awareness so you can assess what career paths might intrigue you and enables you to make a solid, mindful plan to explore path works best for you.
Second Chakra (Sacral Chakra): Find your magnetic presence.
This chakra tends to run wide open, taking in the energy of others while your own energy leaks out. It causes you to feel drained or overwhelmed by lots of people because you have energy in your space that doesn’t belong to you! As a chick who left Wall Street to pursue my passion project, I can tell you that money flows when you're aligned with your purpose.
If you have all this energy in your space that isn't yours (hello Mom, Dad, Partner), it’s really difficult to access that true authenticity, who you really are and what career path would make you happy.
The only time you want this chakra wide open is during sex or when you're in nature alone.
Third Chakra (Solar Plexus Chakra): Make it happen.
Your girl power comes from this chakra, because the three S’s sit here: self-esteem, self-awareness and self-responsibility.
When these three qualities are fired up, you're making stuff happen. This might mean going on informational interviews with people who are in professions that sound interesting to you, or knocking stuff off of your to-do list!
Fourth Chakra (Heart Chakra): Learn to receive love.
The ability to receive love is the obvious thought that comes to mind when you think heart chakra, but this translates to money as well. I was in a relationship for a few years where I wasn’t getting what I deserved, and my financial situation mirrored the scarcity of my own relationship. In hindsight, I didn’t have the self-love which warranted the ability to receive love OR money. Needless to say, when I learned to love myself, my financial situation improved significantly in a matter of weeks!
Fifth Chakra (Throat Chakra): Build your brand
This chakra is all about “getting naked” and speaking your truth fearlessly. When you're able to express your unique message unabashedly, you'll attract clients you love to work with, and who love working with you. Everybody wins!
Sixth Chakra (Third Eye Chakra): Know your worth.
The belief systems that sit in the sixth chakra are like computer code that programs the thoughts which go through your mind daily. If you have negative belief systems sitting in this chakra, like, “I’m not worthy of making a lot of money,” or, “I'm not good enough,” then you will likely have a hard time pursuing your passion and cultivating the financial abundance you seek.
Seventh Chakra (Crown Chakra): Get spiritual.
This chakra is about getting connected to spirituality and the idea that each one of you holds the power to manifest a career that nourishes you internally and the financial well-being that you seek externally. All it takes is self-awareness, commitment and a daily chakra-clearing practice.
