Do you know your chakras?
Saturday one of my bffs took me to a class on chakras. Everyone has heard the word before but I doubt really that many people know what it is. The class was pretty packed which really shocked me! I thought it might possibly be just me and her, haha. It was held in a yoga studio, and here is something I've never understood, why do some yoga studios have carpets? It's GROSS! We sat down in this carpeted yoga room for a few minutes and I had to fight dry heaving. Seriously the carpet really grossed me out and made me want to vomit. The saliva was building up like crazy in my mouth and I finally got up (I wasn't sure I was allowed) and went to the bathroom. That carpet was filled with sweat and bacteria and grossness and my mind and stomach could not even handle it. I stayed in the bathroom for a while and tried to relax. I was able to keep my composure through the 2.5 hour class and did end up learning a lot. We have 7 chakras, each one responsible for something different. And some of my I think are blocked and need work, especially the one that controls energy level and digestion haha, but some of my chakras are really in tune and working well, like the intuition one and the one that makes you creative. I want to go back and have this man tell me about my own chakras and what he feels from them. I know a lot of people think this is crap but I believe in a lot of it, but I also believe in Western ideas too, especially when it comes to medicine. But overall it was a really interesting class and I'm glad Lindsey made me go!
