Alchemy of Balance: Using Chakra and Chant
Each day, I ask myself, “How do I maintain balance in order to live my best day ever?” As much as I try to stay balanced, I have learned that I can easily lose it. Balance may be easy to find, but it is hard to sustain. This is because we are the only ones who can do the inner work of maintaining it.
Francis Braceland writes, “We can be sure that the greatest hope for maintaining equilibrium in the face of any situation rests within ourselves.”
So how do we find and maintain balance? I have discovered two tools: chakra and chant.
The chakra—the seven main energy centers in the body that receive, absorb, and distribute life energies—are a natural starting place.
The chakra offer us a benchmark to assess our life balance.

Alchemy of Truth: The Throat Chakra by Silvia Mordini
What you say defines who you are. The words you use to express yourself become your message to the world about the life you are manifesting. This is the work of the fifth chakra—our communication chakra, or Vishuddha.
Today, dedicate yourself to your most truthful intentions. This clears the way for you to ask the right questions as you design your personal vision.
On the mat, our poses serve to refine our abilities to listen intently and speak honestly with ourselves. Once we are able to internally express what we want to manifest, we can share this outwardly with our friends and family.
The Throat Chakra
Visuddha in Sanskrit means, “extraordinarily pure.”

Full Moon energy is a potent time to align and release what is no longer serving you.
The perfect mantra for this time is: I AM READY FOR CHANGE
This is very 2nd and 3rd chakra work and being on the mat will reveal what is necessary for us to allow our evolution to unfold. We get to see where we have resistance to change. Or where we doubt ourselves or hesitate which are forms of resistance. We all know what we want, what we need, what we are ready for and often replaying old patterns serves to hold us back.
I would love for you to empower yourself to know that YOU CREATE YOUR REALITY. You can influence your life in a dark way or change it out and dream big and each day of your life becomes as Rumi writes “a day of festival!” Yes, it really will if you allow yourself to keep evolving in the direction of happiness which the yoga sutras say is our natural state.
Start now: I AM READY FOR CHANGE.
Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
