Anahatan, What’s That?
A few years ago I found a sound or word rolling around in my head. It wouldn’t stop, like the crazy tune from the radio that keeps playing in your head after the song has left the airplay. “Ah-nah-hah-tah” kept rolling around until I decided to end it by looking it up, because once I saw it wasn’t a real word, then I could let it go. Nice try.
Google to the rescue! I spelled out the sound/word simply: Anahata, keeping it together as one word because that’s how it “played” in my head. Okay, Google, show me it’s just my head making sounds.
“Anahata (Sanskrit: अनाहत, IAST: Anāhata, English: “unstruck”) or heart chakra is the fourth primary chakra, (according to Hindu Yogic, Shakta and Buddhist Tantric traditions) In Sanskrit, anahata means “unhurt, unstruck, and unbeaten”.”
“You’re kidding me!” I must have seen this before along my journey. I took yoga classes. I followed the chakra system, albeit lightly.
That is when the intuition lilted into my self-conversation. “Working from the heart center. That is what you do. You have been searching for ways to describe your ‘practice’. This is you. You are Anahatan, from the heart. You read and heal energy from the heart center – anahata.”
Since then I have been working with the term and connecting to the greater being that is me. I had already been walking toward this understanding with certifications in Reiki, Munay-Ki, Angel Therapy, Herbalism, and even the Masters Degree in Education that focused on utilizing creativity and arts for learning. Now I have added work in genealogy and using it with intuitive methods, including dowsing with pendulums, crystal therapy, oracle cards, etc., to unlock family histories that can be influencing people’s lives through DNA signals. I can create a family tree or read from one already created.
There are many tools that can be used to help guide one toward a balance and greater sense of wholeness. Which one will call for the next person through the door? Let’s find out. This is not a practice of expertise. It is a practice of wonder and exploration. I start from the heart (anahata) and call in the greater beings we all are to guide ourselves into a greater understanding of who we are, what our lives are about, and what or where else we might journey. “Unhurt, un-struck, and unbeaten” as we can allow ourselves to journey, so we go.
Oh, and we get to access the Awesome Universe shoppe for our tools. Not a bad place to spend time.
The Offer of a Tool
Even reading about energy reading can be intense, especially when it’s new to you. In case your head is spinning, take a breath with amethyst. This is a tool that may come in handy for this and every day issues. Simply place it on the forehead or at the “nape” of the neck, which ever feels more comfortable. If headaches are a persistent problem, consider attaching amethyst to a hat or headband that can keep that healing energy flow near.
