Career advice and spiritual advice are rarely given together, but Amber-Lee Lyons, creator of Chakra Girl Business School, is changing that. Through her online course, she teaches women how to further their careers based on knowledge of their chakras. Weaving together the spiritual, the logistical, and the emotional, the course covers how to hone your skills, build lasting life satisfaction, and make an impact on the world.
According to Hindu and Buddhist philosophy, chakras are energetic areas in different parts of your body that are geared toward different kinds of tasks. There are seven of them, according to Chakras.info: the Crown Chakra (wisdom, transcendence, universality), the Third Eye Chakra (extrasensory perception, intuition, inspiration), the Throat Chakra (personal truth, etheric, expression), the Heart Chakra (compassion, love, integration), the Solar Plexus Chakra (will, social self, power), the Sacral Chakra (emotions, creativity, sexuality), and the Root Chakra (safety, grounding, right to live).
"Our chakras are the core energy centers in our body that control everything from our emotions to the opportunities we manifest," Lyons tells Bustle. "You want to keep that energy flowing with minimal blockages to tap into your full potential. Every aspect of your career correlates to a different chakra. For example, the Sacral Chakra is where you creativity lives and your Third Eye Chakra is where intuition and clarity of mind exist. All the chakra energies are wildly important to your career and life, and doing the work to practice cultivating higher vibrations in your chakras amplifies your results, abundance, success, and happiness!"
Toward that end, here are some chakra-based ways to improve your career and life that Lyons teaches through Chakra Girl Business School.
