"No. 47 Kauri seems to be helping with my increasing awareness of the ONENESS of all things and also I feel more loving towards myself and others. A few people I have seen in the past week have commented favourably on my demeanour!" - A.W. Auckland, New Zealand
Balance, Strengthen and Protect the Chakras
Each of the seven native tree essences is associated with one of the seven major chakras. The chakras are metaphysical centres through which powerful life force, prana or chi ﬂows into the physical being to balance, strengthen, protect, energise and clear not only the chakras themselves, but our whole being. The Sanskrit word ‘chakra’ means wheel or disc. The seven main chakras in the human energy ﬁeld are rotating wheels of light and subtle activity. They function as centres of energy and align with the spinal column in the body.
Chakras are like doorways that can open the full potential for establishing the right relationship between the body and mind or between the physical and metaphysical aspects of our being. They are the keys that unlock hidden inner capacities that produce the harmonious expression of the whole person.
Carl Jung, the Swiss psychoanalyst, referred to the chakras as being ‘gateways of consciousness’.
The chakras inﬂuence all our thoughts, feelings and actions: they establish the quality of our personal life and our experience of life. They inﬂuence and determine our relationship to everything that occurs in our daily life.
Inner Stability and Ease
When the state of the chakras is balanced, then inner stability and ease becomes the natural expression of daily living. When they become imbalanced they can express in an over-compensating and under-compensating mode, or alternate between both. When levels of anxiety reach a critical mass and inhibit the natural ﬂow of energy through the chakras they can also become blocked. This can prevent or severely limit the energy ﬂowing through them. An imbalanced chakra can compromise holistic health and wellbeing.
21st Century Factors
In the 21st century a variety of factors such as the rapid pace of change, sedentary lifestyles, environmental degradation, poor dietary habits, over-reliance on processed foods and the proliferation of potentially harmful chemicals, radiation and toxicity all impact upon our overall wellbeing. As a result natural wellbeing can be compromised.
The seven tree essences help to balance, strengthen, protect, energise and clear the chakras, increasing our capacity to deal with a rapidly growing number of 21st-century challenges and inﬂuences.
The seven tree essences in the Personal Power Set are chakra speciﬁc and these natural emotional remedies operate as a complete chakra maintenance kit.
