Diversity

I’ve been busy writing up useful information to soon share, but in the face of so much division lately, I wanted to pause and share with you a poem I wrote fifteen years ago. It seems more poignantly appropriate now than ever.

When we speak judgmentally of people with choices different to our own, we overlook the opportunity to cultivate empathy for one-another. Before reacting, we owe it to ourselves, and the peace of our communities, to take the time to learn where the other’s beliefs came from – in a non-critical way. To pause and discern; recognising the faith, and the fear in the other, dearly in need of a sense of safety: Whether that is safety from persecution here on earth, or fear of hell in the here-after. We all have our own fears.

All of our righteousness inevitably leads to conflict, and defensive polarising away from each other. We have to make our conversations more personal and educated, rather than political and divisive. Then we stand a chance of understanding, reaching out respectfully, and reassuring those who dance to a different drum.

To quote Albert Einstein “Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”

I guess the sticking point is when the behaviours of others generate harm and prejudice.  It can be very difficult to stay calm in the face of the violation of human rights, and with assault on any level. And legal pathways exist to deal with this. We need to recognise the time to be a voice for the voiceless, to support the brave with their disclosures, and to embrace some of the wonderful movements that we are witnessing today as a result, as they become “viral” tools for education and liberation.  There is a time to heal from pain, a time to learn from it, and a time to let it go. And understanding paves the way to forgiveness.

But on-going conversations in these areas are not necessarily going to be easy. We have to mediate diplomatically, speaking to the fears that the prejudice comes from. Xenophobia is still alive and well: the fear of things and people different to ourselves. We cringe with terror when being stretched outside our comfort zones. But not to try sentences us all to suffer.

There is a time to speak out protectively against abusive prejudice, and a time to teach, to learn and to build bridges. It’s a lot more work to keep rebuilding the bridges that we’ve burnt – before we’ve had a chance to cross them. ♥

 

DIVERSITY

Brother dear, this life is short,
This busy road is wide,
So you can sing a different tune,
And still dance at my side.

Diversity in not a threat
And sharing makes us wise,
When we both will sing of Peace,
We will harmonise.

Open up your heart to me,
Look at who I AM,
Walking in each other’s shoes
Is what our God has planned.

So let me live in my own way,
If I do you no harm,
It answers yearnings in my heart
So I am strong and calm.

The Eight Fold Path of Buddha,
Beatitudes of Christ,
Krishna taught Arjuna well,
Mohammed, true and wise.

The Mystical Qabaala,
Koran rich and deep.
Shakti, Shiva, Babaji,
Sharman, Jain and Sikh.

Baha’i, Jewish, Christian,
Spiritualist too,
You all love the same God,
And He loves all of you.

Different by Religion,
Creed, Philosophy,
All that stands between us…

Was designed to set us free.

Tip 3: Keep your Light bright this Christmas

As we embrace this holiday season and the tradition of sharing Christmas with our loved ones, it is an opportunity to prepare our mind to go forward into these gatherings with an intention of unconditional, positive regard. The less we expect or demand from one-another, the less our buttons will be pushed. As we observe the behaviours in those we are close to, which may be less than ideal, look lovingly at the wound that creates these reactions and projections, without judgement or the desire that the person be different. I’ve found that this is a fail-safe way to remain buoyant in my heart, and genuine with my affections towards anything that may otherwise become vexatious.

My grandmother, and then my mother in turn, used to say “Peter Rabbit’s mother told him: ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all’”. And so, I’ve learned to hold my tongue. Not in suppression, but to observe where the need in me to be “right” and “heard” is coming from. Arguments stem from having to be righteous. There are, of course, times to mindfully comment and set boundaries when behaviour is doing harm to others, but if it’s just a little bluster of ego and projection, I just send it love, and it sets me free of my own reactions.

Hugging someone who is venting is extremely healing for them. It will usually totally surprise them, take the wind out of their sails, and de-escalate things immediately – if the hug is validating and heart-felt. Yes, it takes discipline and practice, but it is highly worthwhile and liberating within you.

I’m also mindful that this time coincides with our Summer and Winter solstices. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the longest day of the year, which was Friday the 22nd this year. And in the North, it is the shortest day, which was Thursday the 21st. In both instances, we’re acknowledging the constant influence that the coming and going of light has on our lives. Whether it be from the excess heat or cold, we are dependent on light, around us and within us, for inner health and global stabilisation.

It is from these understandings that Masters have harnessed the life force within light, to breathe in strength with intention, and build it within their meridians (energy channels). We live in a constant state of osmosis, automatically assimilating the life force around us as we breathe. This brings into sharper focus the need to be protective of the environments we inhabit and the company we keep. A lot of energies are being exchanged between us all the time, and we deserve to be protective of the spaces we choose to spend the most time in. We benefit from keeping clear boundaries both emotionally and physically, so we are more able to thrive and embrace life from a positive place.

The more you’re able to ensure that you live in a clear and supportive space, the more positive life force you accumulate and store within you. And the more you have to lovingly share with others. So while you’re being generous this Christmas, cherish and protect your most precious gift – yourself. Protect and value you, so that you may keep on shining your love on others.

May the Light shine bright in your life and in your heart this Christmas. ♥

Tip 2: Are you a Secret?

A gifted friend shared with me last week that she had been asked a critical question about herself that evoked a powerful response from her. She had been asked “Are you a secret?”
She was able to respond with a clear, resounding “No, I am not a secret”. This amazing woman stands in her power as a passionate and successful Medium.
I realised straight away I was applying it to myself: “Am I a secret?”

My first response was to not compute it – I couldn’t even process the question. My second response was to be defensive: I thought to myself “What kind of a question is that?!” I had no frame of reference to even consider it was wrong to keep what I was under wraps. And then I knew I was on to something huge, and hidden within me! Justified and suppressed… of course I am.

After life-long ridicule for being psychic, and well-meaning advice to protect my conventional and professional reputation, of course I’d become extremely discerning as to where I’d admitted my true level of psychic access to the world. It became natural to keep my insights, visions and messages to myself. I edited beautifully, and had a very fluid and engaging contemporary facade. How well-adapted am I?! How normal! How lonely, isolated and in denial am I?!

“Am I a secret?” “Oh my god, yes, always”. Even amongst spiritual friends and associates, I was so cautious and reluctant to confidently share the full range of input Spirit had to my daily perceptions of life. Part of my psyche had just accepted it had to protect me from appearing “crazy”. Some of my insights were such a quantum leap from even contemporary Spiritual thinking that I just processed it all alone, because I thought I “knew” I’d be seen as implausible. And being  painfully shy made the confrontation of it unbearable.

And so I had a day to day life performance of being only half of who I was. “Am I a secret?” The answer was so confronting that it hit me like an earth shattering epiphany. Would I have reacted this way if I’d been asked earlier – years ago? Probably not. I don’t think we have these shifts until we’re truly ready on several levels – I would’ve justified, dismissed and moved on. But this day, it hit me like a truck!

My friend saw the wave of emotional processing broiling within me, and took me through a very simple EFT tapping session that left my heart burning with excitement and liberation of the likes I hadn’t felt in years. “No, not any more!” Not angry, or baffled. Just excited! On fire with the celebration I was receiving from my Team in Spirit. And ready.

Over the years I had challenged myself on so many levels to release my worries over what others thought; “to detach personally, professionally, and socially; to create healthy boundaries and internal validation!” That had all served me well, but this one – this huge, hidden, unconventional and often misunderstood part of me – has simply not been challenged until now. Why would I choose social suicide?! I’d only admitted a part of what I was to selected audiences, where I felt a degree of security and acceptance, for being “psychic”.

And now it feels akin to “stepping out”. I’ve lived my life in a (very warm and friendly, professional and highly functional) … closet. I should have a “coming out” party!

Most likely, no one who mattered would really hold “my secret” against me, but I certainly had, and it was smothering. I’d clipped my own wings and hidden the stumps. If I now consider how I feel about others reactions, judgements, or concerns for my revelation, it doesn’t even rank as having any significance, compared to the importance of living my truth, fully in the light.

The ramifications are so hugely liberating that they’re still unfolding. I wake up excited each morning to create, write, share, just be, on a whole new inspired and engaging level. I can only highly recommend the experience to everyone: “Am I a secret?” You might like to ask yourself when you feel safe to be totally open and honest, and see where you feel any denial within you – are you resisting in setting yourself free on any level? Then embrace the liberating, and challenging, roller coaster that just might follow! ♥

Tip 1: Easy breathing to reduce anxiety

I felt to start with something useful. ♥
One very effective way I’ve found to reduce adrenalin, and calm your nervous system when it’s over-reacting, is to simply breathe into your belly. If you practice when you’re calm it will be more instantly effective when you most need it:

This means that when you breathe in, you imagine the breath travelling down through your diaphragm, which is just under your ribs, down into your abdomen. To help this process, gently allow your belly to push out as you inhale, imagining you’re filling it with air. On the out breath, you simply relax your abdomen and allow it to go back to normal. Your intention is to pull your breath deep down below your ribs, at a rate that is slower than usual, and comfortable for you. As you practice, this will gradually become slower, calmer and deeper.

Now, the reason this works so well, is that you are taking the emphasis off breathing up high in your chest, where the body goes into an automatic fight-or-flight reaction, to produce more adrenalin and cortisol. This breathing becomes more rapid as our stress reaction increases, and can lead to hyperventilation and panic attacks. It’s the way our lower brain takes us to the point of reacting faster to a perceived danger. This is great if you have to run for your life, or physically fight to survive, where you want your heart pumping fast, and all your energy being diverted to your muscles, to respond to physical threat. But this comes from an out-of-time function, that forces us to react when it doesn’t honour us – when we most want to be calm and in control. But our energy leaves our conscious mind, suddenly scrambling to concentrate and unable to think what to do to counter our body’s “betrayal”. Instead, the adrenalin has us wanting to run away, or dig a hole and bury ourselves, to escape from feeling so compromised!

Well firstly, teach yourself to take three of these deep breaths, telling yourself something relevant, like “I am calm, safe, and detached”. With time, you’ll easily develop the habit of breathing this way all the time, which in itself, becomes preventative. That is because we automatically breathe into our abdomens as babies. But as we experience fearful situations, and are taught to worry about fitting in and performing, our breath permanently migrates to the upper chest, in constant reaction mode.

Consider that this deep abdominal breathing is how martial artists, yogis, and masters have taught themselves to breathe – to stay calm and in control in the midst of threat or chaos. This energy centre, three finger-breadths below the navel, is known as the Dantian– the power centre – of the Sacral Chakra. These masters also build their life force by accumulating energy into their bodies, through similar breathing techniques. This is also known as Qi Kung, where I was fortunate to study and practise for years with a Sifu Qi Kung Master, so we can start to explore this in another tip to come, as Qi Kung is a very powerful and useful discipline.

And secondly, practice positive affirmations each day, aimed at reassuring yourself that all will be well, with a gradual detachment from worrying about what others think of you. This externalised view of your value will always give others power over you, to govern who and what you should be, just for their approval and inclusion.

Of course, there are exceptions to this detachment, where your environment might be legitimately dangerous, and it is not safe for you to appear to rebel. That is a topic for another serious discussion we can have. But this breathing will also help you get through those situations as well.

Practice by lying down with a small pillow, or stuffed toy, placed on your belly, and watch it rise and fall in response to each breath. You will find that, as you just concentrate on each breath, your mind becomes calmer and stops its scattered thoughts, and your muscles can all gradually relax as well. Children will also respond very well to this technique. Enjoy this easy, very effective process, as a step towards taking back control within yourself.  ♥

Removal & clearing of negative energies

Welcome to my first real blog, which I have wanted to undertake for years, but have beautifully procrastinated with.
I have very powerfully manifested my own limitations, ha, ha, in keeping with a lack of confidence, which is crushingly disproportionate to my abilities!
And I know many of you will relate to this, all too well! – knowing you have something to offer, but having no platform of strong self-esteem to launch from.

In my journey, including a fair share of trauma and bullying, I have kept myself busy working and studying, hoping it would lead to my final “arrival” at a confident place within, where I could stand up and speak out, share a life time of humbling wisdom, and teach some powerful tools that have, in increments, set me free. The irony is that, born to a broad palette of psychic gifts and access to many levels of consciousness, my abilities became a burden of assumed responsibility to help others, with a crushing learned lack of confidence that prevented me from sharing beyond private sessions and small group classes.

Well, after years of working with many techniques, to unlock traumatic “points of origin”, and heal “activating events”, etc, I have finally set free my wounded heart –
the last remaining bastion of resistance, that has me here, excitedly free of excuses
and resistance.

I’ve walked so many miles in painful shoes, that I’ve at least cultivated understanding and empathy for the difficult journeys many of us have hobbled through, and would love to hear from anyone with specific issues or questions regarding getting on top of the game of life, and releasing the fears that hold us back. So reach out in the box below and I will share regularly with stories from my own life, with tips and strategies, to rebuild your authentic self, and increase your empowerment.
Here’s to inner freedom…  ♥

 

The Solar Plexus Chakra

The key to inner peace and true empowerment

Having traversed the Base chakra, to align our Soul Consciousness with our physical journey, and the Sacral chakra, to recognise our purpose and seize our passion, we now tackle the trickiest chakra of all – the Solar Plexus. This is where we aspire to overcome all fear and resonate in an empowered, open and receptive space.
Consider how we have seven main chakras – three lower chakras which resonate to the physical aspects of our incarnation, and three upper chakras which resonate to the spiritual nature of our existence, and then the heart in the middle, being the critical point of discernment, where the two aspects of self – physical and spiritual – are balanced.

So, the Solar Plexus is the gateway to our hearts, and must be kept clear if we are to fully align with our higher vibrational chakras.

Being positioned in the diaphragm, the Solar Plexus chakra is the storage point for all projected fears, attachments and traumas.  Here we find the emotions and sensations of what we learned as children; that the world was a hostile place, where our parents, hopefully with the best of intentions, projected their fears onto us to keep us safe.  Where we were beset with others judgements, humiliation and projections.

Every disempowering thing we experienced during our formative years was assimilated as a lesson about how to be, in order to feel accepted, worthy, cool, safe, or just to be left alone and not bullied.  And if we were lucky, we felt loved sometimes as well.  And so we either conformed or rebelled, but seldom were there lessons in self-love and unity.

Interestingly, we expect to leave all this behind, once we become adults, but the subconscious has no concept of time.  It lives in a vacuum of a continuous now, screaming “Heal me!” at every opportunity.  So it has a very demanding way of insisting that we relive and rehash our issues, with any occasion that has even the slightest abstract relationship to our fears.

The subconscious mutates many present-day interactions into projections of our past, where the same fears have matured but are still triggered in our everyday dealings with life.  We may no longer remember the initial incident that left an impression on the subconscious, but the defensiveness, anxiety, anger or fear will still rise up automatically to cause us to react in a way that is less than empowering and honouring for us.  So, sent forth from the Solar Plexus are all the sensations of churning, twisting fear we have as yet to surrender and detach from.

We may tell ourselves that we’ve got it sorted, and that stress and competition is a normal part of adult life.  That we need pressure and anxiety to thrive and perform, and it isn’t normal to always be relaxed and balanced.  That we’d get bored without the dramas we’ve become addicted to… How cleverly our lower minds have manipulated us to keep us under control!

When clear of burdens, the Solar Plexus vibrates with a beautiful sunshine yellow energy that resonates with joy and inspiration.  It stimulates the mind and lifts us into an empowered state of beingness. It is confident, accepting of self and all others, and calmly serene within its state of non-attachment.

The beauty of clearing the Solar Plexus is that it allows us to then easily receive all experiences within our heart, where we can truly see the dynamics around us for what they are.

Until then, our life experiences are drawn into the Solar Plexus chakra to be tried and tested against the long list of projections and denials we carry.  We all have them.  It is part of our human condition.

My belief is that overcoming the blocks within our Solar Plexus chakra is, by design, the most challenging spiritual lesson we face in our incarnation.  It is the biggest stumbling block that keeps us from inner peace and present-centred existence.  It forces us into deep self-reflection and complete honesty if we wish to master it. Without this discipline we fall into separation, fear, mistrust, intolerance, hatred, greed, ego, conflict and war.  Sound familiar?  The world as we know it needs a Solar Plexus clearing, and yet it is the conflict that pushes us to realise what we need and shakes us from our complacency.

Remember the times we’ve sought peace and our lower mind has reacted by freaking out and keeping us mentally busy?   The lower mind thinks it’s doing a good job. It constantly looks to keep us safe, both from the outside world and from our own inner stillness.  The stillness is very scary to a busy lower mind, which is accustomed to keeping tabs on every moment and needing to feel in control of our attention at all times.

What is this strange stillness we are attempting to impose on our minds?  Our mind has worked very hard to think fast, protectively, and often defensively.  It has mastered multi-tasking at our request, and now we’re asking it to stop?  How terrifying!

This surrender to our higher mind feels paramount to death to our controlling lower minds. This higher mind that we are aiming for resonates at a much higher frequency than the lower mind, so the lower mind cannot perceive it or feel safe to surrender to it.  Yet the higher mind honours free will and makes it the responsibility of the conscious self to discipline the lower mind, step out of the game, and drag it screaming into a higher vibration of true inner freedom.
And all this subconscious reactivity is funnelled collectively through the Solar Plexus chakra, where it churns and produces the butterflies that confirm to us that we are in danger if we dare to challenge it.  And yet, challenge it we must. As King Arthur aptly stated in First Knight, “There is a peace that can only be found on the other side of war.” The battle with the self, “the dweller on the threshold”, as taught by Alice Bailey, that refuses to surrender its perpetual negativity, is the greatest battle we face.

And so, how do we even commence this daunting task?  Baby steps!  Learning to lovingly view the self as a frightened child that needs support and reassurance, kindness and guidance, while still teaching it boundaries and discipline.  Listen to the self.  Become aware of your own self-talk.  Record it and discover the most common maladaptive beliefs you have about yourself which need to be constantly, instantly, restated in the positive.  Be open to receive assistance from therapies such as Psychotherapy and Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, to track back to the causes of the triggers from your greatest traumas and be supported with techniques to safely overcome your strongest reactions.  Just between you and me, that’s the reason I started studying Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy – to heal myself of the most stubborn traumas that haunted me even after 20 years of meditation, and to then develop powerful ways to work with these modalities to support our spiritual endeavours.

We can consciously know the reasons and logically address our issues, but the subconscious mind sometimes needs help to create new neural pathways to transform our reactions into our chosen empowering responses to life. I had conquered many of my demons through conscious application and discipline, understanding the life lessons, empathically seeing the wound in another and lovingly forgiving and letting the issue go. These are also very valid and powerful approaches that I recommend for addressing the majority of our resistance.

However, for my biggest wounds, I had to set my conscious mind aside with hypnotherapy and speak directly with my subconscious mind, giving it a chance to be heard and validated, to have its perceptions reframed, before just overriding it.  My mind sighed with grateful relief, grabbed the tools and ran with them, applying them retro-actively through my past, unravelling reactions in a blessed relief of release and liberation.  My conscious endeavours were finally made manifest and my Solar Plexus was at peace.

After this, it requires conscious application to maintain it.  It is actually not difficult to do, as it is a lifestyle choice.  The act of mindfulness keeps us present-centred and aware of our own reactions, bringing us gently into our hearts, lifting Solar Plexus reactions lovingly upwards to be understood and released.  With practice, the body’s intelligence makes this an automatic process, until all we perceive comes directly into our Heart and the Solar Plexus is then used for its Divine Purpose, of harnessing our true empowerment, streaming in the Source and bringing in the joy.

And so, with the unconditional and loving determination of our own inner parent, we keep bringing on the battle with our frightened and rebellious inner child. In the end, both will win. To stand in our power, feeling fearless, loving and non-attached, able to take on the world, and yet realising that we don’t need to is, ironically, the most peaceful and humble state of bliss we will embrace.

Enhance Your Chakra Qualities – The Sacral Chakra

The Key to your Personal Purpose

I would like to share with you the important dynamics of your second chakra, that liberates you to express yourself with free abandon!  Located about three finger widths just below the navel, this is also the point where martial artists are taught to store energy, or extra life force.  They focus on specific breathing exercises to bring in and build up their life force, which can then be drawn up and directed with force to use a kind of kinetic energy to displace their opponents.

And so, we look to our own sacral chakra, and wonder how we can even awaken it, let alone store extra power within it.  The key is to tune into your sense of your own reason for being here.  We need to take stock of our life and decide what really drives us and gives us a sense of passion.  It is too easy to be led astray by external obligations and the expectations of others.  We accidently start to feel more validated by the encouraging feedback we receive from others than from the intrinsic appreciation we have for our own endeavours.  We find that we are shaping ourselves and our lives to meet the needs of others and we have forgotten what our own important needs are.  We may be meeting the lower-order needs, in keeping with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, where we meet our basic needs for food, shelter and safety.  And perhaps we have slightly higher needs met, where we are working, being productive, and feeling like we belong within our peer group and society.  However, what of the higher-order needs, for self-actualisation and grasping what you’re really here for?  Often times, that’s too scary to look at, for it may take us away from the popular activities we undertake with others that meet our needs for acceptance.  Or it may cause us to admit that we really can’t stand the dynamics of our workplace or the monotony or our job.  We have lost our spark.  We may be able to act up beat, but where has that inner creative flow gone?  We come up blank just trying to imagine what it could feel like to be truly inspired, expressive and content.

Well, the second chakra resonates to the colour orange, and is the vibration of creativity, artistic expression, fun, spontaneity and passion.  This includes our sensuality, and it physically correlates to our reproductive organs and hormonal glands.  This is where we tune in to our expressive, affectionate and playful self and seize the joy in the moment.  Hm, where has that gone?  If you are feeling a nagging dissatisfaction, a flat-lining lack of motivation and your emotions keep bringing you down, then awakening your sacral chakra is a good place to start to revitalise your sense of purpose and meaning.

It can be very confronting to consider that our lifestyles, choices and current paths do not really support the flourishing of our individuality and free expression.  This requires some honest reflection and owning up to how we have shifted our priorities away from honouring ourselves and recognising our personal needs.

If we consider the colour orange, we see that it is created from the blending of red and yellow.  Red vibrates to the base chakra, which sustains our physical strength and the energetic foundations that support the rest of our being. Red also resonates to the healthy use of will, to move forward with positive intention and resolve.  And then there’s yellow – the colour of joy and empowerment.  It resonates to clear insight and stimulates our minds with productive and positive thought. So, these are the two vibrations of red and yellow that are tapped into to support the orange.  Consider how red is in the base, below the sacral chakra, and yellow is harnessed in a happy solar plexus, which is just above the sacral chakra.  So, the sacral chakra is framed either side by the main qualities it can draw from to find itself.  For you to find yourself.  And who are you truly?

To help you with this, you might like to reflect back to your childhood.  What were your original dreams and aspirations, no matter how crazy you may now find them?  How far have you wandered from your passion?  How much time do you allow for free, creative expression on a daily basis?  And that’s not as unrealistic as it sounds.  Although you may not have time to write a poem or artistically create every day, you can keep this frequency alive within you until you do have time, at least weekly, for this kind of necessary expression.  And how can you harness this, even on a busy day?  You acknowledge the liberating power of your Inner Child.  Yes, the Inner Child resonates within your Sacral Chakra.  Here, you tap into that indomitable spirit that does not acknowledge externally imposed boundaries, and rips through those that you’ve imposed on yourself.  Your Inner Child is the spirited, childlike part of you that sees the wonder in the simple things and can laugh at itself with humility and joy. This is not to be confused with being childish.  That connotation places a judgement on you that your playful spirit is immature or selfish.  No, the Inner Child, when embraced without adaptation to please others, is the part of us that has a healthy sense of humour.  That finds the fun in the every-day and plays often and fair with loved ones.  The Inner Child can relate to children and join them in their fantasy world, prioritising quality time with family, with a genuine warm-hearted involvement.  The Inner Child can secretly laugh at the temper or ego in others and see a way around them, even how to best cajole them into laughing at themselves.  And the Inner Child sees the windows to climb out of, off on another adventure, when someone closes a door. And so, allowing in your Inner Child becomes a choice, an orientation, where you prioritise changing your perceptions of the world around you.

And so, we come back to empowering the sacral chakra.  This power lies within you – to see the beauty around you and remember why you are here.  To love passionately and share affectionately.  To sit down and seriously take stock of your life and how you utilise your time.  How much effort do you really put into managing your priorities to allow you the time to embrace your own hobbies and activities?  And how much energy do you waste on things that do not directly honour and support you, so you are left feeling too drained to be creative?  What has to change?  You can still work productively and affectively, without it consuming all that you are.  This comes with the art of healthy detachment, which is the main focus on the next chakra we will explore – The solar plexus chakra.  So it lies within each of us to take stock of what we are currently investing in, and what are the true, intrinsic rewards our activities are really bringing us.

Breathe life force into your sacral chakra.  Bring it in through the Crown on the in breath, and see it stoking a bright orange furnace, glowing warmly within your Sacrum.  And on the out breath, visualise that you just breathe out air.  So each in breath is loading you up and you are holding on to the life force and expelling only air.  You would benefit from taking a few classes in Qi Kung (or Chi Gung), which is a special form of exercise designed specifically for building life force, inner strength and balance.  This is like the introductory level for the martial art form of storing life force as power, which is kept in internal reserves.  It’s very effective, and is part of what I include in my Meditation Classes.  So see who teaches it near you.

And so, you can learn to focus on this centre that helps you hold on to what you’re really here for.  To remember your dreams and seize your purpose.  What did your Soul first come into incarnation for?  What are your most important life lessons and opportunities for full and free expression? If you haven’t thought much about this, then start to prioritise sitting with this gently within yourself.  No beating yourself up and pushing the river.  Nurture yourself, remember what makes you happy, and make a point to laugh out loud more often. Grasp the idea of loving yourself and all that you are.  Open your heart and listen to yourself. It is within the stillness of surrender and gentle allowance that your dreams can speak to you.

The power of your subconscious mind

The subconscious mind is the ancient brain that remembers everything as if it is happening now.

Enhance Your Chakra Qualities

Chakras –
The word Chakra is Sanskrit for “wheel”, which is how Chakras are often viewed clairvoyantly, as beautiful, spinning, geometric shapes of colour, life and movement, aligned along the body.  This is where your Life Force enters and anchors within your body, to feed the energy centre and surrounding organs in that part of your body.  There are seven major Chakras within you, and many other minor ones, as well as some pretty powerful ones above your Crown and down into the Earth as well.
Each Chakra has an associated Coloured Ray that resonates to a specific quality.  The vibration of this Ray helps you to enhance your mastery of this quality within yourself.  This is something you can aspire to integrate into your everyday life, as you strive towards greater inner harmony and self-awareness.But let’s start with the Base Chakra, known as the first Chakra within the body…

The Base Chakra:
The first Ray of the spectrum is Red, and resonates to the Base Chakra, which is located at the base of the spine, in the coccyx (the very tip of the tail bone). I have found that it’s really important to start aligning with this energy within yourself as a first step, as it helps you to anchor Life Force into your physical body, grounding you and acting as a platform for all the other good work you undertake.
This Chakra represents being physically aligned and aware, so you can stay present-centred.  This will assist you to detach from the distractions of your emotions and thoughts.
The assimilation of the Red Ray, undertaken through Creative Visualisation, is a fundamental key to healing any sense of separation from the rest of the world.  It supports you to harmonise and feel a oneness with all living things.  This helps you to achieve a state of unconditional love towards all things, because, if all are one, then you can more easily afford to offer compassion, forgiveness and acceptance of all other beings.  We are all here looking for the one thing, in different forms, in different ways – Love.  And our fear causes us to react in different ways, giving off contradictory messages – insecurity, resentment, anger, blame, projection, control and cruelty.  All stemming from a fear of not being loved and accepted.
So bring in the oneness!
And sit within the stillness and surrender to the inner-connectedness of all of Creation…
If you can’t see it, try to feel it.  If you can’t feel it, try to sense or imagine how it might feel.  Just surrender, without too much intellectual processing, and just allow it to shift of its’ own accord within you, until you feel your resistance give way.Working with the Red Ray will also help you increase your awareness of your body’s own innate intelligence.  From surrendering and tuning in, you give your body a chance to give you feedback about how it’s feeling and what it needs.  Too often, we externalise all our attention on what’s required and what’s happening outside of ourselves.  We forget to check in.
So, go within now, and sense how you’re really feeling.  Don’t be stoic and suppress what you’re feeling… What does your body want to say to you? – in images, in key words, in feelings…
You have within you the ability to heal yourself and tune in to whatever is required to bring yourself back into balance.  Trust yourself… your body’s intelligence is extremely wise.  Just often neglected and suppressed.
This includes realising what your boundaries are – or need to be – with greater clarity.  Your increased body awareness tells you where you’ve been compromising, or where you’ve been allowing in energies, people, events, circumstances, that do not honour you.  Energies need to be reciprocal, if you are to avoid being drained and thrown into energetic imbalance.  This is exhausting and eventually leads to stress, illness and dis-ease.
And so, this understanding leads to recognising that the Red Ray also brings with it the energy of your inner Will, which can help you to appropriately assert your boundaries.  This Will is not to be usurped by the ego, which decides to harness this quality in a forceful way, which overrides the Will of others.  It is about the Higher Will, which represents Truth, Integrity and asserting the Higher Good of others, defending causes and clarifying confusion, uncovering lies and challenging manipulation or injustice.
If this is harnessed with a pure intention, detached from emotional charge and reaction, then you can trust yourself to channel it strongly and speak your Truth from your heart.So, pull that beautiful, bright and fiery red ray in to your body with each in-breath, anchoring it in the base of your spine.  Feel it emanate throughout all of your body, as you are charged and strengthened, and know that you are increasing your connection here with the earth, more easily aligning with what she is feeling, and what is needed by all living things upon her.
From here, you can move on to other vibrations and purposes, knowing you are anchored in the moment, aware of what surrounds you and sensitive to the greater good of all.Enjoy your ever-evolving transformation!In following blogs, in the days to come, (which I have now undertaken to do!) I look forward to sharing more food for thought as we go, as well as spiritual tools in greater detail, including working our way up the Chakras.
Until then,
Warm wishes to you, and may Light Divine be with you always,

Deborah.
