Powerful Survival Strength in Your First Chakra

Do you feel safe? Connected to earth? Grounded and Present?
Your First Chakra, Root Chakra at the base of your spine, gives you physical vitality, a sense of safety, survival, prosperity, and more.
How do you know your Root Chakra needs help?

  • Weakness, fatigue, low immune system, bone and joint issues
  • Poor nourishment or overeating
  • Underlying fears, lack of safety, lack of trust
  • Feeble finances, weak money-management
  • Feeling disorganized, poor focus
  • Indecisive
  • Misplacing things, forgetting appointments
  • Difficulty paying attention in a conversation or a task
  • Feeling floaty, spaced out, disconnected, want to escape

A weak first chakra is ungrounded, not here and now in the present.
Often we live up in our head, disconnected from our legs and Mother Earth. We might be restless, airy-fairy, poorly focused, anxious or fearful.
An excessive first chakra is too focused on materials, on food, too heavy, sluggish, hoarding.

Your strength in first chakra is a balance of independence, healthy vitality and resourcefulness, along with trust and cooperation, a sense of belonging and mutual support with others.
Energy flows from the earth up the legs to the base of the spine, fueling our root chakra. With stability we feel we are right here now. The Earth supports us. We feel our foundation, built upon home and family. We know we’ll survive, provide for ourselves and have enough.

Tips to improve First (Root) Chakra:

  • Make peace with your family of origin.
  • Release inherited fears from ancestors who may have been oppressed.
  • Learn to give and receive within a supportive community.
  • You belong; you have a place; you have a right to be here.
  • Engage in fun exercise, movement, yoga, bodywork, massage, warm baths.
  • Enjoy your bodily senses of touching, smelling, tasting.
  • Walk in Nature and imagine Earth Energy coming up into your feet.
  • Walk Barefoot on the Earth, feel its energy.
  • Sit against a tree trunk and feel into its roots. Or hug a tree for awhile.
  • Explore earthiness – get into soil and plants.
  • Get organized in your home; finish practical chores.
  • Spend only within your means.
  • Open to your feelings, instinct, intuition, spontaneity.
  • Let Life in – let Life affect you.
  • Use a daily Grounding Practice which may include “roots” into the earth.

And let your butt feel big. Sometimes when I’ve been super grounded with a strong root chakra, my butt felt really big, gigantic. I’m just saying.
What is your experience with root chakra?

Free Magic Energy Helps You Thrive 

tumblr_ball energy betw hands fm rebloggy
(From rebloggy, a depiction of bioenergy.)
How about that tingling energy in your hands?
Tingling in the top of your head, when you meditate?
Tingling in your arms and legs, all over your body?
Whaddaya think?  Whaddaya feel about this stuff?
‘Cuz I love it!
When this energy flows unobstructed, it feels amazing. It brings health and wellbeing.
You can access it in many ways.
It is divine light.
Some people know about it. Do you?
Some breathe it in and feel it. Can you?
Some say it’s not real because they can’t see it.

Do you believe in invisible stuff? Like coolness and warmth? Like radio waves and Wi-Fi? Like cell phone frequencies that put your friend’s voice into your ear from halfway around the world?

Do you believe in the electromagnetism that infuses and encircles the earth and all living things including you? That’s the same electromagnetism in your own hands! Take a minute to feel it! We can use this to heal each other, heal ourselves.

In the mid 1970s scientists discovered all living organisms constantly send out tiny currents of light. The strength of the light correlates with health.
At about that same time science proved the existence of the aura and chakras by their measurable frequencies.  Kirlian Photography measured the light emissions in our hands.

Studies revealed that experienced healers produce changes in voltage, frequency, and electromagnetism. This is no surprise to those of us who work with energy. We feel these changes through our hands.
Disease correlates with energy blockages in the biofield.
These blockages absolutely can be repaired, bringing balance to body, mind, spirit.
It has been my deepest honor to witness wonderful outcomes when energy is repaired.

More importantly, the spirit infuses the body. Your spirit produces your health, so to speak. When a person feels alive, eager, truly happy, in balance with everything, their body stays healthy or repairs itself easily. This is an ideal scenario — a person basking in light, with no remaining hang-ups, worries, or imbalances.
Rare? Yes, but we have practical ways to bring more balance.

You can support your seven major chakras.
The chakras are wheels of light, intersections of energy, positioned vertically up the body. Chakras are antennas and processors. Each correlates with its own nerve plexus and glandular system. Each represents a different aspect of life. Starting from the tailbone and going up, these chakras relate to

  • Survival
  • Pleasure
  • Willpower
  • Love
  • Truth
  • Insight
  • Cosmic Connection

Energy healing repairs chakras. Plus there are practical ways to strengthen your own chakras. Stay tuned these next seven weeks for tips on how to help each chakra thrive!

What did you feel in your hands?  Or in your energy session? Comment below!

Revolutionary Shift –  Diversity is Our Strength

Who really bugs you? Bring them to mind.
Automatically your armor is on, with spikes all over it. Can you feel it?
Your sword is in your hand. Feel it?
Defense, defense! Push ’em back, push ’em back, waaaay back!

It’s a twinge of hatred, okay. Probably for good reasons. That person is a creep, okay.
Gets you riled up. It’s energy.
Your armor spikes stretch out so far, they stick to that person even when you’re miles apart.
Your attention to them gives them power and drains your energy.

Why do you do this? Why do I do it?
It’s been our human habit for too long.

Take a breath. Take three breaths.
(We are One.)
We no longer have time for hatred, for pushback.
It wears us out. Squeezes us too much. Wrecks our health.
It doesn’t work anymore, that forcefulness, those insults.
Our spikes probe into each other’s business.
We say, “You cannot be that! You’re wrong!”
(We have no clue about them, about their path.)
Those irritating coworkers, neighbors, politicians, foreigners . . .

For eons we’ve tried to fight what we don’t like, squash it, wipe it off the face of the earth. But this is impossible. This has never worked.
Now we are engaged in bigger and bigger battles, hostilities, disputes.
Already we can loosen up.
Already we can download peace, from the inside out.
Already we can admit: what bugs me “out there” is actually inside me.
It’s a trick of the ego, a projection.
We hate some trait in ourselves, and we project it outside so we can hate it better.

Who bugs me? Turns out their flaw is in me, too.
I’ve declared that flaw hateful, not to be tolerated.
But hey – I have a smorgasbord of human qualities, nice and not-so-nice.
Ranting, raving, pushing, pulling, every sweaty one of us on the playground.
We’re human, warts and all.
Such marvelous diversity inside us.
We can play any role – butcher, baker, bombastic bore.  Aren’t we something?

Let’s drop the angst, drop the armor, drop the spikes. They don’t serve us anymore.
Fold into allowing.
Live and let our warts live.
We can fully love ourselves.
Look in the mirror and say, “I love you just as you are.”
Soon our love for diversity will take the world stage.
Every thing is in right order.

Not the Pushback

4 Agreements – Grab these to Change Your Life for Good

Nothing personal, but have you read The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz?
Can you say what you mean and mean what you say?
Trust yourself when everybody doubts you?
Be immune to praise or blame?
Stop suffering?
Ruiz offers basic tenets for integrity and courage, if we can live them.
That’s the tricky part, right?
“I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.” –Alice in Wonderland
We know it’s not easy.
But we take aim. We might fall. We stand up again and give it a go.
We’re amazing, we humans.
Don Miguel Ruiz gave us a great read.
Here are the cliff notes.
How bold are you? Have you tried any of these? How’d it go for you?

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

After-life News to Charm and Enliven Your Heart  

What if there is no death?
How would life be different if we knew, in our bones, there’s no end to us?

We won’t feel so pressured. I’m not going to evaporate. I can relax. I have a larger life beyond.
We won’t grieve so hard for lost loved ones, because we will meet again.
We won’t spend those end-of-life mega-bucks, because people won’t cling so hard to their hospital beds. We’ll let go easier.
We won’t use death threats anymore. Death, where is thy sting? We’ll lose leverage in death-threat manipulations, political pressures, capital punishment. Because we can’t destroy each other, not really.

If death wasn’t ‘real’ to us, we wouldn’t take life so seriously. We’d see our body as just one stage of our long life. We wouldn’t obsess about our demise. We wouldn’t stress out. We wouldn’t fight each other so hard.
We can’t get rid of each other, so maybe we’ll learn to get along. Mend our fences. Forgive. Come together.

What do you think?
How would you react?
Why do I bring this up?
Because I want to tell you about a book where the ‘dead’ get to speak.

Afterlife Encounters by Dianne Arcangel shares research on communication beyond death. Arcangel has been a psychotherapist, chaplain, and hospice facilitator. (Yes, that is her name – it’s not just cosmic humor.)
She shares tons of data, surveys, and wonderful stories from people who were contacted by their deceased loved ones.
She also describes her participation in afterlife experiments with Dr. Gary Schwartz PhD.

Arcangel did a 5-year international survey of 827 people (mostly from the USA, and the study began with bereaved participants but then expanded to gather a more broad-based non-bereaved population).
The data showed that 72% had experienced an apparitional encounter.  (A few apparitions involved spiritual figures, historical figures, pets, or unknown people.)

Of those who had an afterlife encounter,

  • 98% said it brought them comfort.
  • 92% experienced it soon after the death of the loved one. Virtually all said it diminished their grief and brought lasting comfort from then on.
  • 82% of these encounters came unexpectedly. Survivors were not longing for an event. Not trying to invent one. Those spirits popped in anyhow.
  • 78% experienced more than one encounter.
  • 99% said they would want another afterlife encounter in the future.

Among those who hadn’t had any encounters, 89% said they would like to have one.

Afterlife Encounters is filled with fascinating personal accounts from the people who lived them. The most common type of encounter was a visual apparition, but some involved hearing, feeling, smelling.
(My mother-in-law wafted the aroma of baking cookies under my nose on several occasions. For our charming family stories, see Talking Through the Veil.)

If 72% of us are having afterlife encounters, we know our loved ones are intact, yes? And there is no death. Not really. Just a new phase of life outside the body. It’s like crossing the street.

Have you ever had an afterlife encounter?
Why don’t we talk about this stuff?
Why don’t we realize this physical life is only one stage of a longer life?
Why don’t we look forward to running around without a body?
Everybody chime in – what do you feel?

Sept 21 How to Expand Your Constriction and Feel Better 

It’s remarkable how our personality type offers clues for the locations of stress and blocked energy in our body.
If energies are blocked long enough, they may become health issues.
Each type tends to constrict with their habitual theme, and relax with the antidote to that theme.
But the body is intelligent and can help us heal ourselves.

Thursday September 21st, we’ll listen to our body, find our constriction and calibrate it with expansion. Somatic release.
It’s a delicious feeling.
It’s a healing for us.

You’ll get a one-page chart showing how to do this for each of the nine personality types. I’m excited to share this material.

Anybody can participate, even if they don’t know their personality type.
If you’re curious to investigate the topic, go to my blog for several posts about the enneagram system of types.
Here’s a free personality-type quiz on the web.
Check out the Arizona Enneagram Association.

Come have fun with us at the Arizona Enneagram Association meetup on Sept 21

  • Thursday September 21st
  • 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Paradise Valley United Methodist
  • 4455 East Lincoln Drive, Paradise Valley, AZ

Alert! Natural Cure for Tremors and Parkinsons  

Big news for those who have not taken dopamine-enhancing meds for more than a few weeks. Tremors and idiopathic Parkinson’s disease can be resolved without medication!
Yes. This supposedly incurable disease can be cured, if you’re willing to try something different, without pills.

Dr. Janice Walton Hadlock, professor of acupuncture and psychology, has made a huge pdrecovery coverimpact for people with Parkinson’s since the 1990s. She is the founder of the Parkinson’s Recovery Project, pdrecovery.org. With five e-books, she teaches people how to heal themselves of this disease. (No acupuncture needed, and the books are free – donations accepted.)

Hadlock and her treatment team found that in people with Parkinson’s, some electrical currents ran backward (i.e. acupuncture meridian streams had reversed flows).
They verified two common factors which need to be cleared for full healing to occur.
– an energy block in a foot or feet, often from an old injury in childhood
– a neurological state that shifted the parasympathetic system into “near-death shock”

It’s not hard to repair the energy blockages in the feet. Even if you don’t have professional help, Hadlock’s books show how to do hands-on healing for the feet.

The bigger issue is the parasympathetic “near-death shock.” This occurs when the person encounters mortal danger, physically or psychologically. They go into biological dissociation, where they collapse inwardly, stop showing emotion, and stop feeling pain.
Some people remember a specific incident, severe injury, gigantic threat. Some remember dissociating and feeling like they were outside of their own body.

Others remember, as a child, it was dangerously unsafe to show their feelings. They made a choice to block their emotions, a self-numbing defense against extreme situations.

Let’s remember, in typical fight-or-flight, we use our sympathetic branch of the nervous system. The parasympathetic is our relaxed restful side. And yet threat-of-death and self-numbing can impair the parasympathetic. This condition turns off the brain’s ability to use dopamine even though plenty of dopamine is available.

In order to shift this chronic condition back to normal, the person must open up the striatum of the brain, says Hadlock. To do this, they need to feel deeply safe, deeply trusting, confident that they are loved by the universe. Then their brain repairs and their symptoms stop.

Through the decades Hadlock has tried many approaches to help people gain this sense of safety. Only one method has activated the striatum and brought full relief. This method is not easy for most people with Parkinson’s, because of their constant sense of danger and risk.

Here’s the method. Develop real communication with the higher non-physical realm. Speak silently or out loud, but gain a true relationship with something or someone who is totally loving, tender to you, dear to you, protective and powerful. They might be your late grandmother, or a saint, a totem animal, or your idea of God, highest Source. Whatever works for you.
Even if you don’t believe in it, persist, because eventually you’ll feel more safe, more beloved.
It is the sensory awareness of being safe, protected, beloved, which changes  the brain. This stops the numbness and shifts the parasympathetic system to normal.

This renewed sense of deep safety, along with energy repairs in the feet, has brought recovery to hundreds of people, documented  by the Parkinson’s Recovery Project.

However, DO NOT try any of this if you have been on antiparkinson’s dopamine-enhancing medications longer than 3 weeks, says Hadlock.
Because when the brain normalizes, these medications suddenly become extremely dangerous. Tremendous care must be taken to avoid insanity or death. Dr. Janice Walton Hadlock has written reams about this in her book, Once Upon a Pill.

In recent years special exercise programs designed for Parkinson’s have dramatically improved quality of life for people, whether or not they’re taking medication. These special programs help create new neural pathways. Five years of research data shows symptoms did not worsen, and in some cases improved immensely with these exercises.

Check out Conundrum of Parkinson’s yoga exercise program in Fountain Hills. It includes rhythmic drumming, stretching, strengthening, coordination, balance, voice strengthening and brain stimulation. Participants are singing its praises several times a week.
