There’s a new way to heal, it is called Chakradance – release your blocked energy and feel amazing!
Our bodies remember, this is a fact. Memories are not just mental, we know a thousand things about a place just by smelling something which triggers the memory of going there. We know the feeling of falling, the sensations that pass through our body when we first feel attraction. All our senses work together to create memory. Just as we recall good times, our bodies and minds also record negative experiences or trauma. “Our bodies remember these things because each of us has an energy body or ‘aura’ interconnected with our physical bodies – a dynamic vibrational matrix containing our mental, emotional, and spiritual histories.” says Natalie Southgate, founder of Chakradance*. Understanding these experiences and releasing the tension caused by them is an essential way to maintain good health both mentally and physically. If we fail to release said negative energy our body begins to store it where it does not belong and in turn this causes blockages within our natural ‘flow’. This blockage can lead to more serious conditions and even illness if we do not release them. These blockages could be the key to explaining certain feelings or lack of lustre for which we can’t figure out the cause. The main points within our body that have the capacity to release said stored energy are called our chakras, there are many methods practiced within holistic therapy which can help with this; to restore a balanced ‘chi’ and put ourselves back on a healthy track.
Natalie Southgate, a trained energy-healer and Jungian therapist, has been developing, refining and teaching an innovative and specifically designed method of releasing such negative suppressions and healing our energy flow in the form of Chakradance since 1998. “It’s a deeply healing practice for wellbeing. It uses dynamic moving meditations set to music specially created to resonate vibrationally with each of your seven main chakras – the energy centres that regulate your whole mind-body-spirit energy system,” claims Natalie.
The concept of Chakradance is to channel movement, music and meditation through your seven main chakras and encourage any stored negative energy to be released and set free from your body, allowing you to heal and feel balanced. The specific movements are designed to open up your chakras, the music assists in creating the mood and meditative state with which to channel the energy effectively. You may well experience or “re-live” a memory or moment in your life which caused the original pain, or you may just feel emotion or understanding of what or where the trauma was situated.
To connect with your chakras, for Natalie, means many things:
- To understand the wisdom of your body and trust in your instincts.
- To be passionate and open the door to embracing new love.
- To embody both your feminine and masculine energies
- Embracing your personal power.
- To discover your expressive person within, allowing creativity and your voice to shine through.
- To open your heart to compassion and forgiveness.
- To reawaken your intuition and imagination and gain heightened insight into your life. To remember your spiritual connection and find a sense of sacredness in your life.
“The element of dance introduces a method which releases blocked emotional energy, retunes and rebalances your chakras, restoring your whole energy system to a healthier state of vibrancy and balance. To let go of what no longer serves you, and awaken strengths that have been lying dormant within you. Slowly but surely, you’ll start to feel more fully yourself again”, says Natalie.
There may be an element of encouragement from your mind as to whether this works, however, if it works then what’s wrong with that? A cynical viewpoint when it comes to natural therapy will always try to find fault in the science; however it can be argued that the exceptional variety and depth incurred by the human mind combined with the complexity of our incredible body systems makes it nigh on impossible to fathom an exact scientific explanation or theory for absolutely everything. If something works for you, then it works. Simples. Perhaps we don’t need to clarify such a complex matrix after all; our own healing journey is just that – our own – so maybe it is good to just go with the flow, or chi!
