How to open the Nabhi

By manifesting the qualities of our Nabhi chakra in our daily life, this center can grow stronger, deepening our meditations and making us less susceptible to imbalances. When we neglect this chakra it can be difficult to feel satisfied and we may constantly seek something to fulfil our endless physical, mental and emotional needs.

Tips for improving your Nabhi chakra:

- If you are someone who is really busy, or are part of a very busy family, try to designate at least one night of the week to cook a meal and enjoy it together at the dinner table. Take it to the next level, and don’t allow phones at the table!

- When it comes to dinner time, try serving others before serving yourself. Bringing your attention away from your own hunger to the needs of others will naturally make you feel more satisfied before you even have your first bite.

- Next time you are browsing in a shop to buy something for yourself, instead try thinking of what you could buy for someone else as a gift. Just imagine how much it will please them and see how much more fun it becomes!

Lady of Light

Each culture and religion throughout history has had their own archetype of the preserver, such as the Goddess Lakshmi in Hindu tradition or the Greek Goddess Athena. Islam reveres Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet Mohammed, as a beacon of purity and virtue. Her life (c.605-632 AD) is a great example of dedication to the welfare of the family, and of the ability to sustain others through one’s own deep sense of satisfaction.

Though her family lived through poverty and ridicule, Fatima never complained and instead sought to bring a sense of peace to those around her. Even at a tender age when her father was stoned by those who opposed his teachings, instead of being afraid or disheartened she gave him comfort and tended to his wounds. The Prophet Mohammed himself regarded her so highly that he would stand when she entered the mosque, also showing others how women must be respected.

The Hand of Fatima is a symbol widely seen throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa. It is both a sign of protection, a shield against our own negative thoughts of selfishness and greed, and also a symbol to welcome the abundance and goodness of the universe. It therefore serves as a reminder to embody the qualities demonstrated by Fatima’s life which, when manifested, can bring an innate sense of peace within and can spread to those around us.
