other chakras

A PSA for those browsing these main tags:

“G*psy” is an ethnic slur used against Romani people. You can call yourself a nomad or a wanderer or any of a number of terms, but using that word in particular to describe yourself (if you’re not a member of that culture reclaiming it) has about as much charm as calling yourself by any other slur.

Karma and chakras are concepts having to do with Hinduism and Buddhism. Chakras in particular were among the many things taken by western new age people in the 70s. Stop talking about either of these like they have any basis in neo-paganism. I know that the concept of karma is very similar to the Three-fold Law but they are two different concepts and should not be conflated. 

*to cover my bases, Reiki has only existed for less than a century and doesn’t seem to have a huge cultural significance. So no, practicing Reiki would not be appropriative. 

Closed religions are often indigenous religions that must be taught by an existing member of that religion. If a religion is closed, you can’t incorporate elements or deities from it without being massively disrespectful to that religion. If you want to find out if a religion is closed, look in the tag to see what its practitioners say, or google “is ___ a closed religion”. 

With this very basic primer, I wish you all luck in weeding out the appropriative blogs from your searches!

KakaSaku Week 2016 - Prompt: Salty

“Not my finest hour. Hadn’t foreseen that the Godaime may have trained my ex-student in other areas besides chakra control. She completely drank me under the table, then called me ‘salty’, whatever that means.”

Grounding Into Gratitude || 30-Minute Root Chakra Yoga Sequence

Yoga With Adriene writes:

This yoga practice guides you through a series of poses to balance the Root Chakra and cultivate grounding with gratitude. When the root chakra, or Muladhara, is out of balance a person can feel anxious, uneasy, fearful, worried and stressed. This can lead to low energy and low immunity and an overall sense of instability. Use the tools of yoga to strengthen and balance to the root chakra, the foundation of all the other chakras. Cultivate self love, stability, and sense of security. You are worthy and deserving. Remind yourself, you are awesome and you are supported!

Two of the major reasons I dislike Sasu//Saku regarding Sakura

1. Power Imbalance

Sasuke and Sakura are on two completely different levels and always have been. Sakura herself acknowledges this and knows she cannot do anything to save Sasuke and relies on Naruto to do it. Sakura starts out completely average. She isn’t particularly bad and has better than average chakra control whereas Sasuke is from a noble clan, has the Sharingan bloodlines and is already easily at the top of his class. Throughout the series she uses her excellence in chakra control to perfect medical ninjutsu and Tsunade’s chakra focusing punch. While Sakura is doing this, Sasuke already has a Sharingan, a curse mark and is already hanging out with Orochimaru. Sakura doesn’t get much stronger than that other than the chakra release on her forehead but Sasuke basically becomes a demigod (which he technically is) rivalled only by Naruto. When Sasuke fights Sakura HE KNOWS SHE HAS NO CHANCE but he does it anyway. This is very different from when he fights Naruto and even after beating him Sasuke can never bring himself to try and kill Naruto like he does with Sakura. Everyone knows Naruto grabbing Sakura is the only reason Sakura didn’t die by Sasuke’s hand beneath the bridge when Sakura chased after Sasuke and got in his way. SasukeVSSakura is wayyy different to SasukeVSNaruto because both boys know that they can take whatever the other throws at them right up until chapter 698 where they still remain equals. Naruto even says in Shippuden that he WANTS Sasuke to fight him so that Naruto can shoulder his hatred and they can die together. They are constantly one-upping each other and Sakura gets left behind even when she trains with tsunade to try and keep up. Sasuke is too much for Sakura to handle and she knows it which is why she has to leave it up to Naruto to save him. I can’t support the ship when Sakura has nothing to offer Sasuke except a uterus (remember: he doesn’t want/need her love).

2. Sakura’s Character Development

In the first part of Naruto Sakura’s character starts out with very little respect for Naruto who is an outcast while also being one of Sasuke’s many devoted fangirls. Sakura grows out her hair because of a rumour that Sasuke likes girls with long hair despite this having an negative impact on her performance as a ninja. She loses her best friend to a rivalry over a boy neither of them even know at this point. It is the very definition of schoolgirl crushes on the local bad boy. But Sakura becomes a better Ninja and a healthier person each time she cares just a little bit less about Sasuke. A major part of her early development was her cutting her hair because it was the turning point in which she decided she was going to prioritise being a ninja and her own safety over attracting Sasuke. Sakura also manages to restore the friendship with Ino that she lost over Sasuke. Along the way, Sakura also develops affection for Naruto and recognises that Naruto is not who she thought he was at the start. Sasuke eventually leaves the village and Sakura realises how weak she is compared to the other boys. Along the way we have official books saying things such as “Sakura used to have a crush on Sasuke” and scenes in which Sasuke disregards any affection from her. Eventually Sakura gives up on saving Sasuke and feels bad for Naruto because she thinks Naruto is only chasing Sasuke for her sake. Sakura agrees with the kage that Sasuke needs to be stopped and confesses false love to Naruto so that he would come back with her and not put himself in danger when the kage hunt down Sasuke. So not only does she completely give up on Sasuke but she purposefully tries to get Naruto to give up, too, even though up until that point she had encouraged him to do what she couldn’t. By this time it is very late into shippuden and Sakura has no faith left in Sasuke. If she still loved him at this time she would have fought alongside Naruto for Sasuke’s safety. But she didn’t. Hell, there was even a time where she was prepared to kill Sasuke herself. Sakura’s story was about a young fangirl growing into a mature kunoichi who isnt blinded by pretty boys and that is why I think it is BS that Sakura reverted back to fangirling over Sasuke in 699. It is a slap in the face to everything Sakura endured during the series and seems to just reverse all of her development. There becomes very little difference between Sakura in 699+ and Sakura just before shippuden except skill level and age.

And this is just about Sakura, don’t even get me started on Sasuke.

After learning more about the chakras, I realized how important it is to work with all of them! By doing so, we can naturally stay happy and healthy.

So for the root chakra, spend time in nature. For the sacral chakra, allow yourself to feel whatever emotion comes up and do more of what naturally brings you pleasure and joy. For the solar plexus chakra, set goals that you would love to accomplish and move towards them. Even if you are not sure how yet, write them down as a to-do list. The ideas will come to you. For the heart chakra, cultivate healthy relationships; be around people who make you feel comfortable and happy. Also send love to yourself and others. For the throat chakra, speak your truth, share your feelings, and express yourself. For the third eye chakra, listen to your intuition and prioritize your day in a way that makes you feel empowered. For the crown chakra, be aware of yourself doing all of this and practice meditation every day (even if that’s 5 minutes).

That is all.

3 Physical Moves to Clear Your Chakras and Welcome the Energy of Wealth with Carol Tuttle

Whenever we work with shifting our thoughts from the illusion of lack to the truth of abundance, we are working with energy.

Still, as known by Indian sages and yogis for thousands of years, thoughts are an energetic product of the movement and flow, or lack thereof, of the chakras and meridians.

In this video Carol Tuttle works directly with the meridians and chakra to shift the energetic pathways of consciousness from lack and powerlessness to abundance and empowerment.
Its really amazing how efficient these simple exercises are and I definitely recommend watching it as well as her other videos on each chakra.

okay but

someone should totally make an Avatar/Legend of Korra AU of Fairy Tail where all of our faves are in their respected bending nations

like Natsu as wandering firebender with one of the last dragons in the world as Igneel

And Gajeel as a straightup master metal bender who works for the police department, and has ties in with Juvia from their criminal days and she’s this secluded waterbender

aND ERZA AS A NONBENDER WHO TAKES UP SWORDFIGHTING AND IS KNOWN FOR HER STRATEGY TO DEFEAT EVEN THE BEST BENDERS

and maybe even Lucy as a nonbender right?? but she was born into the air nomads and can travel within the spirit worlds and has completely mastered the ideology of other realms and chakras?? (cause she’s good with reading the stars and that stuff??)

And at some point or another they all end up meeting in some way and this big villain comes out they all sHARE THEIR SKILLS TO HELP DEFEAT HIM/HER

(GASP BRANDISH AND ZEREF DUO)

LIKE I WOULD DO THIS

In Sanātana/Hindu and tantric/yogic traditions and other belief systems, a chakra (Sanskrit: चक्र) is an energy point or node in the subtle body. Chakras are part of the subtle body, not the physical body, and as such are the meeting points of the subtle and non-physical energy channels called nadis. Nadis are channels in the subtle body through which the life force (prana) (non-physical) or vital energy (non-physical) moves. Various scriptural texts and teachings present a different number of chakras. There are many chakras in the subtle human body according to the tantric texts, but there are seven chakras that are considered to be the most important ones.

Their name derives from the Sanskrit word for “wheel” or “turning”, but in the yogic context a better translation of the word is ‘vortex or whirlpool’.

The concept of chakra features in tantric and yogic traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism.

anonymous asked:

Do you know if you can use stones that are labeled as "tumbled Chakra stones" be used for other witchcraft (non-chakra) things?

yeah!! if you can find out what the stones are, that would be awesome! if not you could use color correspondences to determine uses or see how they vibe with you and go from there. ☺️ anything can be infused with energy!

Not only did Sakura become a master healer, she has amazing kage leveled offensive abilities with her super strength, use of poisons and her summoning. In addition Sakura is able to supply chakra to others, powering them up in the process. She’s the total package as a sannin level and kage leveled kunoichi. All of this by the age of 16.  

I participate in a world where it is deeply safe to love other people.

Shura smiled, “Ares himself isn’t all that tough. His is a power of the mind. He needs to bully, and lie and sneak around to get what he wants. Papa only tolerates him cuz he’s kin. That and, what was that saying papa taught me…oh! Keep your friends close, and the-guy-who will-certainly-back-stab-you closer! He’s more afraid of the people he’ll associate with outside the village…”

NIA’s database instantly updated itself. “Correction…there are four orbs total. A single orb can simply boast its possessors abilities by 25%, two at once 100%, three 300%. And, should one possess all four, they can pry their way into the Leylines, and have any and every wish granted. The orbs themselves are as close to alive as the definition of the word allows. According to Chireru, this specific orb was once evaluated by one whom he befriended, and determined that it can be adopted into technology, despite their mythic origins.”

Shura looked at Kaguya inquisitively, “What’s a Expansive Truth Seeking Orb???”
