Hi Georgia, tell us a bit about yourself and how you first got into Chakras?
I am a professional energy healer. My aim is to help my clients to become happier, healthier and more joyful. I tune into their chakras with my hands, to find what they need. If someone has just broken up with a boyfriend, their bruised heart chakra will need kind, loving energy. If they find it hard to speak up, their throat chakra might need an energy boost, so their words can flow. Each chakra feels completely different, I find them absolutely fascinating.
How did Healing come into your life?
When I was younger, I wasn’t exactly ill, but my energy was often low, which made me feel tired, achy and foggy-brained. But I always felt optimistic that I could improve my health, and tried all sorts of different things, including going to the gym, yoga, acupuncture and cutting back on sugar. I noticed that my body responded particularly well to healing and energy work, and I was fascinated by it. Eventually, when I was bouncing with health, I trained to be a healer too.
How did the writing of your fantastic Chakra book come about?
The chakra book started as a project on Instagram. I wanted to explore chakras more deeply, so my daughter (who is a huge Daisy Chakra Jewellery fan!) set up my account, so I could post something every day. Chakras are associated with seven beautiful rainbow colours, and suddenly I was seeing these colours everywhere, which brought me so much joy. I also love the way that Chakras represent so many different aspects of your life, from practical matters (Base Chakra) to feeling spiritually uplifted (Crown Chakra).
Do you have any tips for anyone who wants to find balance in their life?
It’s all about balance! Feeling stressed and overstretched is exhausting. But feeling blocked and sluggish is tiring in a different way. There is a sweet spot, in the middle, where your energy is flowing, and you feel cheerful, productive and able to cope with anything. It’s about being aware of your energy, and making little adjustments during the day. If you are feeling overwhelmed at work, five minutes yoga breathing in the bathroom can calm down the adrenaline and cortisol whooshing round your body. If you are feeling frowsty and unmotivated, try five minutes walking briskly round the block, to pep you up. Those five minutes might be all you need.
What advice would you give to people beginning their own Chakra journey?
I would start with the red base chakra, at the base of your spine. It is the solid grounding foundation for all the others. Every time you spot something red, it is a little reminder to think about this chakra; about roots, the earth, and security. If you wear a Daisy Base Chakra bracelet, every time you see it glinting on your wrist, that will be a reminder too. Spend a month on each chakra, and work your way up towards the crown chakra on top of your head.
Do you find it hard to switch off and how do you unwind from a busy day?
I feel very lucky because I love my job and don’t find it tiring. So I usually feel pretty good at the end of the day. But I do work hard to manage my energy. I practice yoga, walk in the park several times a week, eat nourishing food, and hang out with lovely people. I regularly balance my own chakras too, of course, because I want to be full of good positive energy for my healing clients and for my family. If I’m feeling unusually tired and can’t sort something out for myself, I will go and see a healer, because it’s usually a sign that there is something that needs to be cleared out, perhaps an old childhood memory, ancestral energy, even a past life.
When you meet people for the first time, do you find yourself consciously or even subconsciously reading their energy?
Some healers see energy and colours around people. I can feel it. I used to get horrible tummy aches when I was a child, and my parents were getting divorced, and the tummy aches continued for years when I was with people who were unhappy or stressed. Part of my healing training was learning how to turn this off. So now if I go to a party, or am standing in a busy shop or train station I consciously put a bubble of energy around myself. I teach this energy protection technique to all my healing clients. I wish they would put it on the National Curriculum. So many people are affected by energy, emotions, stressful vibes or whatever you want to call it, at work and at home.
