How to Restore Emotional and Physical Wellbeing

Restoring emotional and physical wellbeing will help you to manage your moods, to feel
better, to experience fewer negative emotions (such as hate, anger, sadness, grief, disappointment, worry, fear, resentment, guilt and so on).

When you free yourself from these emotions you feel more in flow with life, more in control, more in balance, less moody or irritable, instead you are more ‘like yourself’ and more importantly more happyJump for Joy

Epigenetics tells us that our internal and external environment has a direct influence on our genes and DNA. It tells us that the way we respond to stress, what we eat, our emotional state, etc. will have a direct influence on sperm and egg health.

When you embark down your fertility journey, you can look at it as a wonderful learning opportunity for you to understand who you are and how you can be a better version of yourself so you can create a better baby.

It all starts with wellbeing. To be a well being you need to be in a state of harmonic resonance… Because we are made of energy.

Most of us live in a world oblivious about the subtle energy around us. The exiting thing is that your fertility journey has brought you to this point where you are now about to dive into the sea of infinite possibilities that this subtle energy work has to offer.

Scientifically proven

Science has proven –

  1. There is a vibrating field of energy around all things
  2. Matter comprises mostly of empty space

Did you know subtle energy can be transformed through mindful intention? (You can learn more about this in my Mind-Mastery component of my Fertile Lifestyle Course and Programmes. We have all heard of “mind over matter” and have seen it come to life with yogis sitting in loin cloths in the freezing Himalyas, meditating without getting sick or dying. They have mastered their mind and their body.

We see people working with this energy all the time. Qi gong practitioners, Reiki practitioners, energy field healers – they can all feel and work with this subtle energy.

Now that you are fully aware of the presence of invisible energies, let’s discuss some of its functions:

Our body's energy system - the layers of the energy field correspond with the 14 chakras and energy flows through the body via meridian linesAs this picture illustrates we experience energy transactions – energy moving through us; to us and from us. We have a torus (flow of energy around us); an energy field, chakras.

These energetic transactions occur through the aforementioned modalities, as well as our thoughts, feelings, attitudes, actions and intentions.

So, now that we have established that all things are energy (and that humans are too), we can go one step further with your understanding in that humans are constantly transmitting and receiving energy. Your subtle energy bodies (layers) influence the functioning of your body (your physiology) and they are directed by your intentions.

For example, when you are having a conversation, your intention holds a particular vibration. This vibration is not only transmitted to those you are speaking to but also into the space around you. When people walk into your space (or the room you are in) they will pick up on your ‘vibes’ which they will either like or dislike or feel neutral.

What are Chakras?7 Chakra System

There are 14 Chakras (energy centres), but the seven main chakras are energy centres, connected to nerve ganglia in our body.

The expert on Chakras, Anodea Judith says our chakras are a system offering a complete way in which we can self-diagnose and heal by mapping the journey of our consciousness. She states in her writings The Chakra System (2000) “this map navigates the connections between the spirit and matter, mind and body, heaven and earth. It shows you how the inner dimensions of your own spirit align with the sacred architecture of the world around you. Like any map, it does not tell you where to go, but shows you where you can go.

How to tell when Chakras are out of balance

Just as energy gets blocked in our body (manifesting in “knots”), chakras can become blocked too. When this happens you can become stuck in repetitive patterns. When this happens it leads to

  • Addictions; or
  • Being stuck in a relationship; or
  • Chronic illness; or
  • Obsessions; or
  • Annoying bad habits

What causes chakras to become blocked?

According to chakra expert Anodea Judith, unresolved difficulties that you have encountered in your life (especially those in childhood) can cause a blockage in one or several chakras.

    I see you are now also based in Mayfair, near Selfridges. (This is a really convenient location for me). Do you offer chakra yoga to help with fertility?

    Hi Fiona,

    Now that I’ve read this article, I truly appreciate what exactly the chakras mean and how they function because before I read this, although I did QiYoga (qigong and yoga), I didn’t really understand how the chakras function. A great article. Thank you so much.
