Reiki/Chakras /body parts.....


For a while I have wondered if there is a connection between certain body parts and the chakras.  The first example that I thought of is the iris of our eyes.  Would the iris's opening and closing have a corresponding effect with the third-eye chakra or maybe the other vision related chakras?  Then I started thinking it might be the opposite, open iris's means closed chakras.  Either way, cats seem to act real freaky when their irises are big.  Another example might be yawning.  Could it have some relation to the throat chakra letting off some kind of "steam"?  Or maybe it might have to do with the heart or solar plexus.

What do you think about this??

Todd, I personally don't associate the state of the iris with the state of the third-eye chakra. That doesnít mean itís not true though. You might want to experiment with meditating and opening the third-eye and then looking at the state of your eyes.  See what happens. As for yawning, itís usually associated with the need for more oxygen for the brain. However, it could also be an indicator of an over-active throat chakra (and/or heart chakra) that needs to ďlet off some steamĒ or cool down. Thatís probably, when people are emotional, itís recommended that they take a few deep breathes.

Certified Reiki Master/Teacher (Usui System) with over nine years of experience, offering private sessions, attunements and training. In 2002, Pam saw an ad for a Reiki I class and decided on a whim to give it a try. During the next year she completed her Master/Teacher class. For the next several years she gave treatments to friends and family and dabbled in attunements when asked, never really having a desire to be a full-time healer or teacher. In the last few years the call to fully realize herself as a healer and teacher became too loud to ignore, so Pam began focusing her attention on Reiki, leaning toward the compassionate action-based practice of Karuna Reiki. She believes everyone has their own style as a healer and a teacher, Pamís being a more laid-back, relaxed approach toward her practice. She believes her purpose in life and in her Reiki practice is to introduce healing tools and wellness principles to those who ask for them, so they can apply those tools and principles to their own lives to bring about good health, balance, and happiness.
