According to Dr. Christiane Northrup’s expert about the 3rd chakra, “spiritual and emotional issues that can block energy in the Third Chakra are challenges with self-confidence, self-respect, competence and skills in the outer world, substance abuse, aggression, defensiveness, making decisions, and competitiveness.”
She also has a great article, Self-Esteem: Seven Keys to Well-Being which explains the Seven areas of self-esteem and spiritual and holistic options to boost it. The seven areas of self-esteem are as follows:
Social Skills and social comportment
A place in the sun
On a more social note, when you think about summertime you think about heat. And when some of us think about heat we think of passion. And when we think about passion sometimes we think about summertime fun filled with a love.
Do you remember in the movie Grease, with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John and one of my favorite childhood karoke songs whose words were, “Summer Lovin’ had me a blast…Summer lovin’ happened so fast…” And know that this intense fire and love may just be for the summer. Enjoy it for what it is!
However, on a more committed note and for more long term feelings, I have heard that June is one of the two most popular months to get married. Honeymoon are enjoyed it exotic places such as Bali or Thailand. Anniversaries are celebrated at local resorts or with a beautiful romantic dinner at home.
Regardless of the length of the love, summertime is a good time to spice things up. It’s a great time to let go, move forward, let the fire burn, enjoy the warmth, love and laughter and have some fun!
Holistic - Mind, Body, Spirit and Emotions
All in all, summer time is a time for taking action for those life changes that will benefit you. Enjoying the change of the seasons, as well as touching upon all aspects of your life (the holistic way of living), may lead to a more balanced, fulfilling life.
May you have a joyous Summer Season filled with positive and creative thoughts, well-balanced nutrition, a healthy body, a free and playful spirit, and love and passion in your heart.
