On a frosty, crisp November morning 3 Pure Wellness reiki students, a reiki practitioner friend and I met at the Meta House of Milwaukee. We shuffled downstairs to the dining hall where aromas of waffles, bacon, and eggs swirled in the air around us.

As Pure Wellness has grown providing more Reiki and wellness classes, I found myself needing a specific space for those classes. I had seen this building 4 years ago when we were space hunting, but it seemed so out of reach at the time. Then my family and I moved into that area, not realizing that was that building. Then I went business space shopping at the beginning of the year and it popped up in the listings.
Without getting into too many details, I will warn readers that this post may touch on a little personal. It’s different than the regular Pure Wellness post, but I promise not to get too scary…
Whether or not you make resolutions, it’s become more important than ever to take care of yourself. Besides living a long life and being around for your loved ones (including children), don’t you want your long life to be as stress-free as possible? Many people are probably laughing at that last thought, but of all the things you can control: How to relieve your body of unwanted stress.
Have you heard of 21st Century Stress? Yes, it’s a real thing. Whether we want to admit it or not, our lives are a constant buzzing around, checking emails, posting on facebook, tweeting this and texting that. We’ve actually somehow added to the day to day stress of just living, working, and even playing.
The Crown Chakra means “thousand petaled”. It is our knowledge, wisdom and connection to everything. The crown center of the chakra system is an energetic center found at the crown of the head and above. If its depleted, you may feel a lack of purpose in life, disconnected from your higher power and spiritual life.
Have you ever had a dream and then it has come true? Ever felt something was going to happen and it does, even without you having proof it would? This is your Third Eye Chakra. The third eye center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the above and between the brow line. If its depleted, you may feel closed off to your intuition, memory problems or disconnected from the mind.
The Throat Chakra represents all that is expressive; your communication center. The Throat center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the throat area. If its depleted, you may find yourself not able to speak your truth or feeling “shut up”.
Kindness, love, no strings attached…. ah, the Heart Chakra. The Heart center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the general heart area. If its depleted, you may feel depressed, angry, judgmental and lacking in love towards yourself and others.
When you are moving forward in solid intentions, you are “flexing” your Solar Plexus Chakra. The Solar Plexus center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the area above the navel and below the diaphragm. If its depleted, you may have low self-esteem, weak or indecisive.
