We Need Your Powerful Heart Energy

We need you now. Not only your actions and your prayers, but your tone. In your heart.
There’s grief in your heart, yes. Breathe into it. Allow the emotional energy of grief to flow, to eventually release.
Beyond the sadness, remember.
Your heart energy radiates six feet to miles in every direction.
Your heart is powerful.
Your heart is the key in these tough years.

This world is vibration, from the deep ditch of hopelessness to breezy contentment.
Fear sits low on the scale and blocks our view of better feelings.
Fear makes us think fear is truth.  But it is not.  It’s just another view.
We each operate our own elevator up and down through these vibrations.

Our Attention is our most powerful tool.
Place your attention on a better-feeling thought.  Anything you like.
What do you like? Bring it to mind.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath down your spine and say,
“I open myself up to receive light, love, inspiration, and truth.” *
Relax into it.  Let it work on you.  Breathe.
Let this light flow out to humankind.
This is not an escape.  This brings circulation and light all the way to the extremities of pain on our planet.

How’s your Warmth, Willpower? Third Chakra Energy Secrets

Belly up to the bar and take your rightful place in the world!
Yes, third chakra is in your belly. Some traditions say it’s at the navel, others say solar plexus. Third chakra supports the adrenal glands and the organs of digestion and elimination.
Hark!  Does this mean it serves our strength, energy level, ability to digest our world and release whatever does not serve us?  Yes.
These issues are not small potatoes – they’re big ones. In fact 3rd chakra often needs repair and loving attention. (In my practice, 2nd and 3rd are the most common chakra repairs needed.)

With a color of yellow and the element of fire (“fire in the belly”), third chakra also relates to our ego identity, self-image, our role, and potentially our selfless service.

An unbalanced third chakra may look like:

  • overeating or under-eating
  • all problems of digestion, leaky gut, IBS, constipation, diabetes, etc.
  • fatigue or restless agitation — craving stimulants or sedatives
  • aggression or passivity
  • control-freak arrogance or wimpy victimhood
  • too much or too little self-esteem
  • unaware of healthy boundaries between self and others
  • subtle tendencies of all of the above

With a stable third chakra, we have a sense of our appropriate place, our personal power, without being too aggressive or too shy. We have a healthy ego, willpower, confidence, spontaneity and a sense of humor. We are responsible, reliable, and self-disciplined.

Questions to ponder for this “fire in your belly” —
How assertive or unassertive are you? Intimidating or intimidated?
Do you have a strong competitive streak, must win? Can you also lose gracefully?
Do you feel adequate?
Do you worry about your competence? Do you appreciate your capabilities?
How is your sense of responsibility? Overly responsible? Irresponsible?
How reasonable are your boundaries?
How well do you digest your world?  How much do you resist?  How much is indigestible?
Can we allow it to be as it is, without fighting it so hard?
It’s not our job to fix the whole world, but to allow and enjoy the diversity here.

Hot Tips to Heal Third Chakra:

  • Improve your digestion – resolve leaky gut, feed your microbiota gut flora
  • Get a healthy colon – eliminate daily, even 3 times a day.
  • Strengthen your core with Foundation Training, sit-ups, Pilates.
  • Daily walking helps the whole digestive system.
  • Bring balance to your ego and take your rightful place.
  • Be self-empowered but not overpowering to others. Watch the boundaries.
  • Go for relaxation. Release stress. Meditate a minute a day.
  • Ginger, mint, or chamomile in tea or topical essential oils can help 3rd chakra.
  • Appreciate how capable and proficient you already are, in so many ways.
  • Be happy to play your unique role in your world.

How to find Delight, Pleasure, Creativity in Second Chakra

Pleasure, emotion, desire, creativity, the ability to move and connect with each other: these are the gifts of Second Chakra.
Water is the element here – waves of water, waves of duality. Dualistic opposites balance each other. Yin and Yang.
Here we hold our strong desires along with the fluid ups and downs of emotions.
When we listen to our emotional guidance system, it can direct our path.
Our feelings lead us to stronger intuition.

This chakra is located in the low belly, sacrum and hips, which lead to movement.
It is also connected to the spleen or splenic chakra on the left upper abdomen.
Orange is the traditional color here, which speaks of joy, hope, exuberance.

How healthy is your second chakra?
Do you have fluidity and grace?
How is your sense of guilt or shame? Can you let it go?
How well do you let yourself feel your feelings? (Often more difficult than it sounds.)
Can you go with the flow, switch gears when something changes unexpectedly?
Do you feel okay to indulge in pleasures? Do you over-indulge?
Do you have good boundaries with others? Are you enmeshed or codependent?
Are you too dependent and clingy, or too independent and bossy?
Does life feel fairly fun, or is it a dull chore?

Second chakra can be weakened by experiences of rejection, manipulation, poor boundaries, physical or emotional abuse. These may result in dampened emotions, a lack of passion, disinterest in pleasure, poor social skills, rigidity, lack of easy natural movement.

With an excessive second chakra, a person may be obsessed about others, manipulative, invading others’ boundaries, with mood swings, sexual addiction, or fixated on unrealistic expectations.

Self care tips for Second Chakra:

  • Dance, move your hips, or use yoga stretches to open hips.
  • Celebrate your sacred sexuality and the pleasures of life.
  • You don’t have to work to exhaustion before you play.
  • Eat dessert first sometimes. Go for what you desire.
  • Feel your feelings – don’t tamp them down.
  • Explore the sensuality of touch, taste, smell.
  • Embrace your flexibility, adaptability.
  • Allow the natural rhythms of your body, the highs and lows throughout the day.
  • Release old pain, shame, stress, and toxins.
  • Live a balance of give-and-take, active and passive, assertion and cooperation.
  • Play like a kindergartner each day – sing, dance, draw, color. Blow bubbles!
  • Take up a new-to-you form of creativity – learn to play harmonica, knit, calligraphy.
  • Open up to curiosity and fun. What would be fun for you?

Remember when you were a little kid and everything looked and tasted fascinating? You were fully in the moment. You were with the leaves and the ants. You were totally absorbed in whatever you saw.
This is the sense of wonder in a healthy second chakra.
Lovely things arise in each moment, and here you are, loving them.

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.

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.
