In eastern cultures, they believe that your mind, body and spirit have a connection. They believe that there is an energy within us called the Chi that, if disrupted, can cause physical and mental disorders. There are points along this energy that are connected to foods that we eat, colors, tones, emotions and emotional growth. They are called chakra’s. The chakra’s go down the center of your body and have points on your face that can be tapped to reconnect the energy that has been disrupted. Each chakra has an area of your emotional and physical body that it controls and if disrupted will cause certain disorders within the body and emotional mind. There is a therapy that is becoming popular, called “Tapping” that will realign your chakra’s and heal you body and mind. It can reverse trauma and other mental and physical disorders that have happened to us along the way so we can live a happy life. During the next several blogs I will attempt to talk about each chakra and what it is connected to within the body and mind. If you identify with any of the things discussed you will first have to be willing to let go of the old and replace it with the new. The following link will help you to do that.
I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist. View all posts by dtoomey2015
