Imagine that you have been traumatized, like many of the characters in The Chakra Diaries, and many of the characters we all know in real life. Your limbic system, the part of the brain that acts on memory, can create a loop of fear, anger or pain, that your conscious mind has to work to change. It takes daily meditation, affirmations, yoga, Reiki or other energy work to repattern our synapses to react differently and free us from the past, and make anything possible in the future.
If you haven't tried to create a "New You" yet, read my last seven posts on balancing the 7 Chakras. They'll help you identify any of your chakras that may be out of balance. These chakras are the base of all energy medicine and once you have brought them into balance, the healing energy of your body can move freely, your limbic system can recover from trauma and stop associating the "now" with the past, and your future can be anything you want to make of it.
While Chakra Energy has been known for thousands of years, science is catching up - see some of the latest explanations on Brian Plasticity on YouTube - http://bit.ly/sUfY4v
