Chakra Alignment

Today’s message is all about your chakras! The universe is working on helping us to get them in alignment. When your chakras are out of alignment, you become emotionally unbalanced and you may experience physical pain from energy blockages.

Many Blessings,

Working with Chakras

Today I explain my very own personal mediation that I use all the time. It is a chakra meditation. The Charkra are the main energy points within your body. Working on these points will help you in many way. They help open blockages that may be causing you all kinds of problems from physical to mental and emotional issues. ENJOY!

Many Blessings,

Stripping it all away!

This is a vision I had a couple of years ago and thought now to be a good time to re-share with you my experience…

The Milk Ceremony ~ 

I was laid out in circle completely naked as the clan mothers cleansed me with milk. They carefully poured milk all over my body taking care not to miss any part of me. Once this was done pieces of leather were laid over my more private areas and a medicine man then came into the circle. He carried with him a large shell of smoke to once again cleanse and bless me and the area before he began his medicine.

What happened next was something I would have never imagined.  It was as if I had many layers of myself on me…. Like layers of clothing it was as if I had layers of flesh that had built up over the years. The medicine man stood at my feet and with gestures he pulled off each layer one by one. With each layer he pulled off and threw behind him, I became brighter and more clean looking.  It was just like when one lightens their teeth and with each application they become a tad bit whiter. Behind him as he threw off each layer, there were helpers that would quickly pour special water mixed with milk and herbs onto the ground where his gestures seemed to have thrown the layers. Also there was a bundle of herbs smoking just on the far side of the area that yet another helper would continuously fan so that the smoke filled the entire area behind the medicine man.

These layers of me were… well….. they were ideas, behaviors, thoughts, actions and habits that I had formed over years of living. Things that had attached to me through all my daysin this life. I was being stripped away of everything. Stripped down to the bone but the medicine man went far beyond flesh and bone …  he went all the way down to the core of me.

feather It took quite a long while to strip away all my layers .. seems as though I must have collected quite a lot in this  life thus far.  When he was finally done stripping away my layers, I saw something amazing and unexpected. I was made up entirely of light. Laying there still, glowing oh so brightly.. and to my amazement I could see certain parts of me a bit brighter than the rest. We read about and are taught that our bodies have these Chakra points… the points in your body that hold the most energy…. Seeing myself in this way….. confirmed that to be true.

It was as if I had the whole of the universe inside me… made up of every constellation imaginable. Some say were are born of the stars .. after seeing this I would certainly believe that to be a truth. Once I was stripped down to this level the medicine man and his helpers along with the clan mothers, sat down and formed a circle around me…. They sat there for a very long time chanting in a meditative prayer. They did this until the sun came back up.

I was then shaded by some structure that they built and left there in a meditative state until the sun had gone back down. As I began to grow back a new layer of flesh and bone… I was given a token or gift from each person in the circle… they placed these gifts inside me. It will be up to me to find these gifts and use them when the time is right. The medicine man’s gift was a large crystal.. it was squared in shape .. not pointed and not entirely clear.. it was a milky color and a bit off white.

This ceremony leaves me in quite a state of reflection. I can certainly see the point of it and feel quite blessed to have been part of such a sacred and healing act. In fact beyond the words describing the ceremony I feel quite speechless.. not knowing exactly what to say… yeah I bet you never imagines that either!! hahahaha.

On that note I will leave you with this one last thought… maybe we should all take a bit of time to look at ourselves and the many layers we have collected over our lifetimes… and do ourselves  the favor of shedding those layers that bring us negativity, pain or those thoughts and behaviors that simply hold us back in life.

Many Blessings,

Chakras!

What the heck are chakras you say???

Chakras are the points in your body where energy flows from. When a chakra becomes blocked .. illness can set in or we may be thrown off balance, mind, body and soul.

It’s good to do chakra meditation and other chakra alignment work to keep you well and in balance.

Here’s a brief description of the 7 chakras from mindbodygreen.com: 

1. Root Chakra – Represents our foundation and feeling of being grounded.
Location: Base of spine in tailbone area.
Emotional issues: Survival issues such as financial independence, money, and food.
Color: Red

 2. Sacral Chakra – Our connection and ability to accept others and new experiences.
Location: Lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel and 2 inches in.
Emotional issues: Sense of abundance, well-being, pleasure, sexuality.
Color: Orange

 3. Solar Plexus Chakra – Our ability to be confident and in-control of our lives.
Location: Upper abdomen in the stomach area.
Emotional issues: Self-worth, self-confidence, self-esteem.
Color: Yellow

4. Heart Chakra – Our ability to love.
Location: Center of chest just above heart.
Emotional issues: Love, joy, inner peace.
Color: Green

 5. Throat Chakra – Our ability to communicate.
Location: Throat.
Emotional issues: Communication, self-expression of feelings, the truth.
Color: Blue

6. Third Eye Chakra – Our ability to focus on and see the big picture.
Location: Forehead between the eyes. (Also called the Brow Chakra)
Emotional issues: Intuition, imagination, wisdom, ability to think and make decisions.
Color: Violet

 7. Crown Chakra – The highest Chakra represents our ability to be fully connected spiritually. Location: The very top of the head.
Emotional issues: Inner and outer beauty, our connection to spirituality, pure bliss.
Color: Violet (some use white for the crown)

A simple chakra meditation I like to do is as follows: 

– First settle in a comfortable position and do a few breathing exercises to relax.

– Imagine each chakra point as the color that represents that energy point. You may visualize it as a colored ball, a window, a flower, a door, etc.

– Visualizing one chakra at a time  – see the image  – see it’s vibrant color and then open it. (if you visualize a ball.. make it spin, if it is a door ,a window or a flower, then open them.)

– Don’t move on to the next point until you are comfortable with the first one..

– Once you have gone through each energy point – go through them again and again until you feel you are done.

– practice makes perfect – it can take some time to get the hang of it, the more you do this the better you get.

– When you feel like you are done  – be sure to close each one before ending your meditation.. stop the ball from spinning or close the windows, doors and or flowers.

Let the healing begin!

Many Blessings,
