Body Heals Itself
Body Heals Itself
Listen to the Emotional Wisdom of Your Muscles and Experience a Deeper Level of Healing
You know a lot about the emotions in your mind and heart, but you probably don’t know much about the emotions in your muscle body. The muscles are storehouses of emotion, and pain in those muscles is how your body reveals what needs to be healed―both emotionally and physically. Organized by muscle groups, The Body Heals Itself is your ideal guide to understanding the link between your emotions and muscle bodies.
This book acts as a road map for the energetic journey within your own body, showing you how to recognize and release stored emotions to let go of pain. You’ll discover which emotions are often paired with a specific muscle area and how muscles speak of everything from past traumas to current celebrations. Using stretches, affirmations, visualizations, and more, Emily A. Francis teaches you to unite your mind and body for better health and emotional well-being.

Crystal Alignment: Chakra Balancing
A crystal alignment is also referred to as the laying on of stones. It is the process of placing gemstones and crystals on and around the body with the intention to restore balance. It’s a meditative experience that elicits extreme relaxation.
Although a crystal alignment is usually performed by someone else rather than for oneself, there is no reason you can’t give it a try. You can perform a crystal alignment with little or no experience simply by placing the crystals, stones, and minerals that you are attracted to on or around you for meditation, prayer, or contemplation. If you are lying down for this experience, first line up the suggested crystals next to you and then place them on each chakra, beginning with the root and work your way up to the crown.
To provide this alignment for someone else, establish intention with the recipient of a crystal alignment. Engage in conversation prior to the actual meditation experience. During the preparation for the alignment, determine the ultimate goal and develop a strategy together to restore balance. The section below gives you some guidance for offering this type of session for another person. The same applies when you are doing this for yourself. Just ask yourself the questions.”
