Vai gives a very detailed explanation of the language of dreams, e.g., water represents the subconscious, and even the color of dreams (it's very exciting to interpret your dreams according to the colors of the chakras). For example, a rainbow or multi-colored aspect in your dream suggests the last phase of enlightenment or a completion in the integration of self at that time, according to Vai.
She then takes the reader through the four parts of dreams – the Exposition or setting of the dream, the Action, the Conflict, and the Lysis or conclusion of the dream, a report on where you are in your unconscious. The author completes the book with many interesting examples of dreams and their interpretations, showing how a dream can be a reflection of what is happening in your unconscious mind.
Once you learn the language of dreams, you’ll be better able to notice the need for change, find solutions to your problems, and release old baggage from the past. For those on a path to knowing themselves better, this book is an invaluable guide.
As I am new to dream interpretation, “Dream Analysis” by Keala Vai was so helpful for me in understanding what my subconscious was telling me in recent, vivid dreams. What I learned by reading Vai’s book has progressively helped me remove “programs” that weren’t serving me, by making me aware of them through the messages of my dreams.
Becca, I've done nothing but argue with my partner, even after a romantic Valentine's Day. Any advice?Screaming Throat ChakraDear Screaming,Of course, I believe in balancing your chakras so that you feel secure, compassionate, loving and in tune with your own feelings and those of others.Another tool that is important is just LISTENING. T
he door to cooperation opens when everyone’s feelings and needs are understood, spoken and heard. But the key to opening that door is listening.
Practice listening to what other people actually mean (regardless of their words), and to express your desires in ways that are more likely to be heard and met. This happens when you are in touch with your feelings and needs and able to express them through an open Throat Chakra.
Try expressing your feelings and thoughts with honesty, even in the midst of uncomfortable emotions or conflict.
Listening empathically to yourself and others is the first skill to master, and Compassionate Communications (also known as Non-Violent Communications or NVC) can help.
NVC teaches to simply listen with our minds and hearts open to whatever is being shared and to say what we think we're hearing. When you listen, understand and reflect back to a person the essence of what they said, they often can hear themselves more clearly and light up with relief and joy.
It's also important to listen to your own inner self, because we’re not always aware of exactly what is going on inside of us. Underneath painful emotions, there is often some part of us that wants to be known. Listen to my guided Chakra Meditations to connect to your feelings and center yourself, then try expressing yourself and your needs in a calm and centered way.

Here’s the last quote in the book… it says it all:
“After we have mastered the wind, the tides and the gravity, we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, humans will have discovered fire.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

February 13th is the international day of self-love… Madly in Love with ME™ Day.
Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you’ll ever have, says author Christine Arylo, and I agree. Opening your heart chakra to compassion and love for yourself enables you to offer unconditional love to others.
How can you increase love in your life?
More kindness, less judgment.
More fun, less perfectionism.
More happy relationships; less drama and difficult people.
More of your dreams coming true, less settling.
More happiness today, less waiting for the day ‘when’…
Self-love is about empowering yourself to love and live your life to the fullest. Because of that overflow of love, you can love others even more. (Tomorrow, Valentine’s Day, share the love!)
We, at TheChakras.org will also be sharing our love, so check our website tomorrow for a special gift.

Can what you eat disturb your energy flow? Absolutely. In other posts, I've listed foods that specifically energize each chakra. But, in general, it's best to avoid GMO's, genetically-modified crops such as the corn and soy found in most commercial products. Buying organic products, labeled "non-GMO," can save you from many health issues that are just coming to light through independent research about Monsanto's RoundUp and RoundUp-ready, genetically-engineered crops.
Ten Ways Monsanto and Big Ag Are Trying to Kill You - And the Planet, from the Organic Consumer's Association:
#1 Generating Massive Greenhouse Gas Pollution (CO2, Methane, Nitrous Oxide) and Global Warming, While Promoting False Solutions Such as Industrial Biofuels, So-Called Drought-Resistant Crops, and Genetically Engineered Trees
#2 Polluting the Environment and the Soil-Food Web with Pesticides, Chemical Fertilizers, and Persistent Toxins, Including Dioxin
#3 Draining and Polluting Wetlands and Aquifers, Turning Farmland into Desert
#4 Poisoning Wells and Municipal Drinking Water, Lakes, and Rivers
#5 Chopping Down the Rainforests for Monoculture GMO Crops, Biofuels and Cattle Grazing
#6 Increasing the Cost of Food, While Reducing Nutrition and Biodiversity
#7 Spawning Pesticide-Resistant Superbugs and Weeds, and Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria
#8 Generating New and More Virulent Plant, Animal and Human Diseases
#9 Utilizing Wasteful Fossil Fuel-Intensive Practices and Encouraging the Expansion of Natural Gas Fracking and Tar Sands Extraction (Which Destroy Forests, Aquifers, and Farmland)
#10 Stealing Money From the 99% to Give Huge Subsidies to the 1% Wealthiest, Most Chemical and Energy-Intensive Farms and Food Producers
