Head Brain

Observing the world – Continuously generates new ideas – Problem solving & reasoning– knowing that you have the power of choice.

This brain should help us plan and problem solve.

Heart Brain

Reaching out to the world – Emotions-memories-images & dreams.

This brain should be connecting us to those around us.

Gut Brain

Engaged with the world – Instinct-Intuition.

This brain should be giving us all the answers we are looking for.

Wisdom comes when the 3 brains are working together – aligned and integrated. Wisdom is an emergent quality that is the result of harnessing the perspectives and insights from all the brains when they are functioning at their highest level if intelligence.

Energetic patterns exist throughout space and matter and their alignment and structure is fundamental to good health, whether in our bodies or the Universe at large.

So, if the energetic patterns in our brain (and/or heart and gut brains) become dysregulated, how can we help to repattern them to reflect previous good health? And, how can we do this to address various related symptoms that arise such as, ADHD, depression, anxiety, heart or blood issues, or digestive and immune issues, etc.?

One way is to ask our innate intelligence, which parts and systems and/or which of the 3 brains need to resynchronize communication between and within them so that their functions can be reset to perform more optimally.

This is where BodyTalk Energy Therapy can help. The BodyTalk System harnesses the innate intelligence of the body and mind by using neuromuscular biofeedback to uncover the unique communication pathways that need to be reestablished so that the body can heal itself. As awareness is brought to ill adapted health patterns and suggestions for change are made, the body and mind integrate these so that old patterns can break up and reconfigure the neural circuitry to better reflect your optimal health possibilities. While this unfolds, people begin to watch many of their physical symptoms reduce or disappear, and feel more vibrant, alive and connected than ever, just as nature intended.

Jaya will be at Inner Revolution Yoga Studio on June 2nd to give us a workshop on Trauma Integration and Healing! Sign up here! Find out more about body talk or to book a session with Jaya!

Tuning into your higher Chakra Centers helps us open up our energy. Each of the 7 major chakras have a bija mantra or sound to help unlock the energy.

Repeating this sound and focusing on a chakra for 15 minutes each day can bring new insight, understanding and opening to your body mind and spirit.

Storyteller: Expansion. You are now growing and encompassing many new ideas. See which area of expansion needs your attention and feed your personal fire of creation. Create more and enjoy the expansion, knowing you have earned it. Note that the expansion will continue if you are willing to share how much you achieved your success with others. Many lives are influenced by another’s story. You are now remembering your personal medicine and how to be your potential.

Each month I have a weekend where I heal pretty deep and this weekend was no exception. On the Friday I had my somatic and body talk session in which we started to reconnect some of the energy in my pelvis. As we connected the energy again I could feel my body responding and actually start to feel sensations in my pelvic region which I have never been able to do before. I felt my gluts and hips start to open and release and with this came sadness and pain. The next day I meditated, walked in nature and then participated in my monthly breath work circe. This one was big. My body shifted and moved in huge ways. At one point the pain came out with a noise that can not be explained, my body lifted off the ground and was held with breath as I let out all my pain and then cried deeply. After this release I felt open and free. The pain was gone. Then I went to dance and move my body at an ecstatic dance. The reason I write about my healing journey is to help others find theres. There are so many options out there if you are ready to do the work. Please contact me if you are interested in healing and ready for the next layer of transformation.


One love. We must feel to heal.

Extend your awareness

Into the bodies of other living beings,

Feel what those others are feeling.

Leave aside your body and its needs.

Abandon being so local.

Day by day, constrictions will loosen,

As you become attuned

To the current of life

Flowing through us all.

Chakras are wheels of energy in our body. These energy systems are designed to help us connect to different parts of our nervous system and awaken SUSHUMMA. Sushumma is our psychic passage within the spinal column.

Meditation and visualization on the location of the 7 major chakras can help connect deeper to our psychic passage.


Mooladhara: Root- Very base of the spine where the coccyx turns up. The first spot on the spine.

Swadhisthana: Sacaral- At the sacrum of our spine.

Manipura: Behind the belly button on the spine.

Anahata: Behind the base of the heart on the spine.

Vishuddhi: Lies at the level of the throat pit on the spine.

Ajna: Third eye: Pineal Gland.

Bindu: Located at the top back of the head

Sahasra: Top of the head. Pituitary gland.

An awakening gives us a full vision of the past, present and future. When we awaken we become lucid on every level.  Here are 10 methods used to awaken.

  1. Awaken from Birth: These are saints and the gurus. It is said that we will have many more awakening from birth as we become more evolved and have more evolved children.
  2. Mantra Practice: Steady and regular practice of mantra. The sound the mantra creates permeates every part of your brain and purifies your whole physical, mental and emotional body. Mantra’s are given by guru.
  3. Tapasya: Purification or performance of austerities.  This is a life of purity and willpower. Living clean and pure in body, mind, and soul.
  4. Herbs (Aushadi): Specific herbs can fast track your awakening. Aushadi is a very risky and unreliable method for awakening.
  5. Raja Yoga: This yoga is intended to achieve control over the mind and emotions. This process takes time in seated meditation and brings about a slow transformation of consciousness.
  6. Pranayama: Intense breath work in a calm, cool and quiet environment. This awakening can be very rapid and should be practiced with a guide.
  7. Kriya Yoga: The most simple and practical awakening is through postures, breath work and meditation.
  8. Tantric Initiation: This awakening is only for a very few special chosen ones. The guidance of a guru who seeks those ready for this initiation. This is the quickest possible way to awaken.
  9. Shaktipat: Again this awakening is performed by a guru and is instant but in this awakening you only receive a glimpse of what it looks like not a permanent awakening.
  10. Self – Surrender: This type of awakening happens on it’s own. The path will lead you into your own self-surrender and once you have surrender you will awaken instantly.
