who are the chakra chicks?
After my last post, you may be wondering, who are 'The Chakra Chicks'?
This post is intended to introduce you to my soul sister and friend, Stephanie Schiach Birken. She is the creator and designer of the Protection Pillow as well as the chakrashirt.
We met in 2015 during my second year of graduate school. It was Stephanie's first year. She was beginning to recognize life as a beautiful journey and was becoming more spiritually aware. We quickly became bonded on an energetic level that has kept us connected over the last few years.
I have always looked up to Stephanie. She is hard working, creative, unyielding, passionate, and unique. I feel empowered whenever I am around her. Most importantly she is a wife, a mother, and an individual true to her calling.
Stephanie is one of those people who actually makes the world a better place. She travels around the world and works effortlessly to empower all walks of life. In fact, a portion of proceeds of sales from Protection Pillows goes to Made In The Streets, an organization aimed to rescue children from the streets of Nairobi.
Recently we have teamed together to bring you chakra education, as well as various forms of chakra accessories. While Stephanie sells Protection Pillows and Chakrashirts, I sell crystal keychains and jewelry. Together we hope to introduce you to your energy system as well as provide meaningful tools for your self-care routines or for holiday gifts.

what is a chakrashirt?
Chakras are colorful vibrating energy wheels that align the spine and keep your thoughts, feelings and you in balance.
Chakrashirts were designed to empower you through your choice of clothing. Each design is especially made with a specific chakra in mind. By incorporating the colors and mantras associated with certain chakras through your choice of t-shirts, you are introducing healing to the energy body.

There are many important ways you can introduce the power of light into your body.
Here are a few examples provided by The Chakra Bible by Patricia Mercier
"If mind and heart are not communicating clearly with each other, one will dominate the other. When our minds are in the lead, we suffer emotionally because we turn emotional data into an enemy. We seek to control all situations and relationships and maintain authority over emotions.
When our hearts are in the lead, we tend to maintain the illusion that all is well. Whether the mind is in the lead or the heart, will is motivated by fear and the futile goal of control, not by a sense of internal security."

"Throat chakra imbalances can cause shy behavior, introversion, confused and inconsistent opinions, self-doubt and several other problems. You can face problems with your creativity and it is possible that you can develop hearing issues. It can also cause you to talk too much or too little. Sometimes, you may say things that make no sense."
The chant for the throat chakra is HAM.
Rather than pronouncing 'ham' -like the meat
This use of 'ham' is spoken deeply in the throat with a rounded mouth
