This book by Caroline Myss is a bestseller and one of the best descriptions of the ancient explanation of the Chakras, “the energy system” within us. She describes what is quite difficult for us modern westerners to understand, as the Ayurvedic system is explained using terminology of the 5 elements; earth, water, space, wind and fire. The elements were also used in Greek Medicine, Chinese and other old philosophies, to describe the different characteristics of different “forces” or energies within us, nature and the universe. All these outer and inner forces affect us, and we affect the outer.
Caroline Myss is a good translator of this system and she compares it to modern medicine to give us an understanding of how the mind and body is one, and that every cell has an energy which is affected by its surroundings and our thoughts. The Chakras are like hubs and routers of these forces and if blockages occur followed by some trauma(s), big or small, and we have destructive and negative feelings, emotions and thoughts, we can get blockages that will stay until these are de-blocked.
The only way to de-block is to think and feel good. So how do you get there? First you take away the cause of the blockage (observe-release, see previous blogs), second you nurture and heal. How you nurture and heal is totally up to you but lead words are, as always, these ones: interest, communication, understanding, exploring, learning & evolving, forgiving, compassion, caring, affection, help & support, intimacy, authenticity, honesty, non-judgment, acceptance, kindness, joy & laughter, etc. And what is all this?
Love, of course! Love is not to judge, blame, change or possess. The fastest way to de-block our Chakras is love. If you don’t know how to love yourself, think about how you would love your child, your mum, a sibling, a friend or even your dog, and turn it around to yourself and do the same. That is the closest we can get to unconditional love. Caroline Myss helps us understand how to do all of this in her fantastic book.

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
