Opening the heart

Keeping with the theme of Valentine’s Day (Happy Belated heart day) we worked this past week on opening the heart.

We reviewed the Heart Chakra (Anahata) the energy center that surrounds the physical heart. The mantra or ‘bij sound’ for the heart center is “Yam” (pronounced ‘yum’) and silently chanted with movement.

Healing ideas

So I’ve have this dang cold since the week before Christmas. I was wiped out last Thursday by it again. I thought it was gone, albeit a cough remained, but then it came back with a vengeance. **disclaimer: yes I’m whining**

I took Monday off of work but by Tuesday decided to get back at it. One of my students is in nurse and she was saying there is a “100 day cold” going around….insert looking at the ceiling.
