Wheels in motion – chakras

You may not be able to physically see or touch your chakras but you will definitely know about them if they are working overtime or being lazy.

Chakra is the Sanskrit word for  “wheels of energy/ light” that help to connect our physical body with our energy body. This is how we are able as human beings to feel, think, sense, and connect to a higher level of being/ consciousness.

We have hundreds of energy systems running throughout our bodies and the chakras are one of the main dominant ones. They are connected through our nervous system branching from our spine, where we have the sushumna nadi (main channel where prana/energy travels through the centre of the spinal cord) that runs from our coccyx (root chakra) through to the top our head (crown chakra).

We have 7 main chakras that connects us from the ground up.
1. Muladhara – Root chakra – Red
2. Swadhisthana – Sacral chakra – Orange
3. Manipura – Solar plexus – Yellow
4. Anahata – Heart chakra – Green/ Pink
5. Vishuddha – Throat chakra – Blue
6. Ajna – Third eye – Indigo
7. Sahasara – Crown chakra – Violet

As everything is energy, chakras themselves have their own vibration. It is here where they have their own colour through the range of the infrared light spectrum. The lower the chakra in the body the lower its vibration.

Not only do chakras have their own vibrations but they also have their own emotions, sound, relating organs and systems, as well as human behaviour and attributes.

You may not be able to physically see or touch your chakras but you will definitely know about them if they are working overtime or being lazy.

When these wheels are unbalanced they can create physical problems in your life. Whether it be from having ankle problems due to instability, to breathing issues from a broken heart and having trust issues, chakra balancing is key to helping you live a healthy, happy, connected life.

Your body naturally knows how to heal itself and it is the reason why you sometimes feel more inclined to eat specific foods or wear a certain colour on different days. Your body is trying to heal and balance itself and intuitively you are doing it without realising…isn’t that amazing?!

The more you learn about the chakra system the more you begin to understand the interwoven relationship of how everything about us is affected by everything within and without. And when you rise through the chakras you become less of an individual with selfish needs and desires, to becoming a more conscious collective being.

I won’t give too much away in this post, but if you would like to know more on the chakras then join me in one of my #WheelsInMotion workshops.

Stop forcing nature

What you do need is a balance of Intention + Action + Patience

Let’s be honest, no matter how quick you drink that detox tea, or how many green veggies you cram in a day, if it takes your red blood cells alone 4 months to regenerate then it’s going to take some time for your health and body to change.

Just like everything in life there is a timing for things, and patience really does need to be a virtue in that “in-between” phase.

Now don’t take the first 2 paragraphs literally and sit back on your little buns and do nothing and expect change to happen. No, that is wishful thinking and taking manifesting to a Dreamworks animation film level. (ie. dream state/ non-existent/ crystal ball level)

What you do need is a balance of Intention + Action + Patience.

Intention… is the energy and purpose behind your goal, and this needs to be on the positive side (believe in your system/ plan/ goal/ dream/ yourself)

Action…is what you need to carry out on a consistent basis for your goals to be realized. Without action you are just wishing and praying on faith

Patience… this doesn’t really need to be explained but it’s something that you will need to carry out when you’re internet connection is slow, and when things (sh*t) just happen along the way!

NATURE FLOWS!!!

We get so caught up in carrying out the first 2 elements in life that we forget about the 3rd…PATIENCE!

When things are forced it goes against nature’s way. Life naturally flows, yet our desire to have things almost instantly is creating a loss of depth, value, and trust within us and our process.

Sometimes you just need to let go, so whatever you are working on at the moment, take 5 on it!

Take a few deep breaths, look at it’s value in your life (is it something that is benefiting you or holding you back?) and either take action on it or don’t.

YES inaction is sometimes a key element to your goals working out. We can become so focused that we miss the bigger picture in our lives. Sometimes we just need to go back to nature, look at how it deals with all it’s forces, seasons, and elements and learn from it.

Be patient with yourself in the process. Stop forcing change to happen. Let go of things that aren’t serving you, and truly listen to your inner guidance.

Shouldering pain

Shoulders tell people how we feel about ourselves. Strong, wide, and lifted shoulders give off confidence and masculinity like you see in the military, and droopy, slouched shoulders show lack of confidence and worry.

Seriously who doesn’t have shoulder pain?

I look at school kids these days walking like turtles with their poor little growing spines carrying more and more every year…I thought laptops/ iPads were meant to ease the load of school books, never mind all their school issues and puberty stages to add to that load

Toddlers, shopping bags, handbags, laptop bags, they are all either on one shoulder or both of them. Then add some work stress, family commitments, deadlines, school fees, an old tennis shoulder injury, and some financial stress, and we have some real weight on those shoulders to carry!

It is no wonder your shoulders are hunched over and feeling heavy with the weight of the world sitting on them.

Physical pain is the body telling you quietly that there are some stuff you have going on that you’re not quite dealing with. Now how loud that little voice is will really depend on how long you leave those little things void.

Shoulders tell people how we feel about ourselves. Strong, wide, and lifted shoulders give off confidence and masculinity like you see in the military, and droopy, slouched shoulders show lack of confidence and worry.

Pain in the shoulders can relate to a few things:

  • weight of the world
  • holding onto too much strain, stress, worry
  • feeling insecure, unsure, overwhelmed, sad, rejected, distrustful, and discouraged
  • droopy shoulders – lack of fun and joy
  • seriousness
  • focus on problems not solutions
  • accumulated anger creates chronic tension in the shoulders, neck and arms

To be honest I think we all carry way too much on our shoulders. It’s time to shrug the weight off and free yourself from the heaviness your bear down on your body – physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I see the weight on people’s shoulders in yoga class. I see it in the children who are carrying our futures problems. I see the sadness in our forgotten older generations that a society has pushed aside. I see it in the posture of abandoned animals. I see it in the broken bodies of office workers who slouch all day over technology and a cyber world that is slowly killing their spirit. I see it in the body language of depressed people as they walk around. I see it in my own body language when I get frustrated and communicate by shrugging my shoulders rather than communicating.

Oh boy does our body speak for us in communicating to others what is really going on with us. Just paying a little attention to someones posture and body language will reveal a lot.

Begin with deep breathing to begin to loosen tension in the body. Visualize those heavy weights you carry begin to fall off like nothing, and feel the softness and warmth return to the shoulders. roll them around, roll your neck and release that rigidity in those areas. A stiff, sore neck usually means refusing to see the other person’s perspective, stuck in your ways, withholding statements.

Release fear, anger, stress, and worry, and install peace, calm, relaxation, patience, support, and compassion.

Stand tall, stand proud and stand confident. Those who have tall posture and strong shoulders are also less likely to be attacked and victimized. This was mentioned by criminals who were interviewed on how they looked for their victims, by assessing their posture, arm movement and level of awareness.

What’s your environment?

Eating fresh produce, drinking water and exercising daily supplies your body with a healthy internal environment to operate well.

Reading books, studying, learning new skills and topics nourishes your mind and provides a healthy, positive environment for your brain to function.

Surrounding yourself with supportive, loving, and encouraging people provides you with a safe space to be yourself and grow.

Mother nature provides you with a clean, healthy, nourishing and supportive environment for you to live in when in her natural state.

Environments are everything in life from plants to home to science labs.

What I haven’t yet mentioned is the fact that your body is filled with trillions of cells and whatever goes into your body physically, energetically, and mentally, provides a type of environment for those cells to live in.

Cells reproduce all the time. Some last for a few seconds and some last up until your last breath.

Now, have you ever stopped to think about the environment you supply for these cells to grow in? This could be the kind of food you eat, the products you put on your body, to the type of people you surround yourself with.

What about your thoughts and emotions you have every day? Are they positive and encouraging, or are they limiting and counterproductive?

What you subconsciously and consciously think about is what you are ultimately creating in your life. I think they call that Law Of Attraction/ Manifesting.

Want to change the internal environment of your body to be healthier and more positive?

Well I’ve got a few affirmations/ statements to help you achieve that; but before you go ahead and say them, make sure your intentions are pure and free of expectation, because that will keep you exactly where you are!

  • I am happiness
  • I am health and vitality
  • I love and accept myself as I am
  • I love my body, take good care of it and radiate beauty
  • Every cell in my body is health conscious
  • I am gratitude
  • I am love
  • I am positive in all aspects of my life
  • and anything else you would like to make your own in I AM form.

Commit to saying some/one of these daily whenever it feels right to you, and see how they make you feel on the inside. Your environment doesn’t change overnight, nor in just a week, but give yourself a chance to create some positivity in your life.

As within so without.

Who’s accountable?

“It’s her fault, she made me angry and I lashed out!”  Ummm, well actually this is not completely true and would you hate me if I told you that it was YOU that made YOU lash out?

She only made you become aware of the anger that was already residing within you and her words/actions hit your “angry pain” button.

Yes it’s true, no one else can make you feel a certain way except for you as an individual. We can get mad about people disrespecting us, taking us for granted, and ignoring us, but we can only change how we react to them, not in how they choose to treat us. A little bit like “don’t let your happiness be controlled by something you can’t control.”

What is within us can only come to light, just like orange juice can only come from the inside of an orange and not apple or pineapple juice.  No one can pass on anger to us like a baton or a side dish, it is something that is hiding deep within that gets triggered by a memory in our brain and in our body’s cells.

Taking responsibility for your emotions is one of the most empowering things you can ever do. You take power back from the emotion/s and own the way you feel. You become present to how you are feeling and realize that those emotions are yours and they can be changed through conscious awareness.

You can also heal these emotions as you bring awareness to them within the body. As we know emotions are energy that can become trapped in the body if they are not processed at the time they are felt.

It is quite easy to pass responsibility for how we feel and for the state we are in mentally, emotionally and physically. As grown adults we are aware that we can change our internal and external environments through our choices,and if you are not, well I guess you just became aware!

Now responsibility goes beyond juts owning your emotions. It is about accepting that you are at this point in your life through your own decisions, level of work and your belief systems.

The type of relationships you create in your life are through your conscious and unconscious decisions.

The level of happiness in your life is a conscious choice of how you see yourself.

The type of environment you live in is a reflection of your choices on what you like to be around.

Your health status is all about what your lifestyle choices.

Your travels are through your conscious choices to pick those destinations.

Taking accountability and responsibility for your life gives you the driver seat in which way you take direction. It stops others from controlling you on various levels; financially,emotionally, mentally and in career.

Take back your power, empower yourself to becoming who you desire to be, create your dreams and goals into reality and account yourself for making those things happen.

Blaming others can almost be labelled immature. This is what growing up into becoming a responsible adult really means and not just a legal right to buy alcohol and drive because you’re over 18.

The choice is yours.

 

How to get through the Ascension

After last week’s blog many of you got in touch and let me know that you were experiencing some and all of the ascension symptoms I had mentioned.

I was taken aback by some of your experiences and positive responses, and it was great to be able to go deeper with you all in talking about this collective conscious shift. Funnily enough as synchronicity will have it, unpacking my boxes last week I saw  The Ascension Mysteries by David Wilcock that I had purchased right before I left the UK to read once I got back to Australia. Timing couldn’t have been better.

So, it only makes sense to continue on this week with some tips to help you get through this ascension transition, or anyone else you may know of that will benefit from this information.

A site I found quite helpful in my research was AscensionSymptoms. It has a further detailed list of symptoms, what can cause them, and some YouTube links helping explain ascension further.

A small list of what you can do whilst your upgrade is happening:

  • Spend time in nature – DAILY with walks in the park, beach, nature hikes, barefoot on grass
  • Let go –  old thought patterns, emotions, negative beliefs. Some modalities that help  EFT, TEC, energy work/healing, life coaching, sound healing, affirmations.
  • Meditate – best time is in the morning after rising. You can also you guided meditations online.
  • Breathe deeply & Mindfulness (staying present) – connecting the breath with conscious inhalation & exhalation.  Helps clear the energy channels (nadis) in the body and helps controls the mind. By doing this you stay present in he NOW.
  • Salt baths/ Himalayan salt lamps – you can also sprinkle salt on your doorway entrances to keep negativity out of your house/flat/room. Leave for a day or two then hoover.
  • Avoid Fluoride – it calcifies your pineal gland which is key to using your higher senses and intuition. It also has many side effects on your health.
  • Essential Oils – frankincense, lavender, rose
  • Ask –  for guidance, protection and an uplift of your energy in challenging times. 

Take some time on your own to really connect with YOU, to listen to inner changes that may be happening and feel what your body needs during this period.

If you have any questions about changes that are happening with you, send me an email, would love to help!

Love + Fear

Love and Fear are the 2 basic emotions that we have. Whenever you take action, it is going to come from either one of these places. They are the Alpha and Omega of our emotional scale.

Scientists who recognize emotions from the use of different facial muscles (ie.Paul Eckman, Robert Plutchik, Charles Darwin) have gone from 7 basic human emotions (happiness, surprise, sadness, anger, disgust, fear, contempt), down to 4 (happiness, sadness, anger, fear). But no matter the faces we make, it is where our emotions originate from that is key.

Before I dive into this more, lets see what emotions really are.

  • Emotions bridge thoughts, feelings and actions
  • They are the body’s reaction to your mind
  • Control your thinking
  • Control your behaviour
  • Control your actions
  • They create chemical reactions in the body
  • Every emotion has its own vibration
  • They are internal responses to a thought

Emotions do a lot, and play a HUGE role in how we live our lives. Our emotions essentially run the quality of life we live, or deeper yet our THOUGHTS do.

It is the thoughts that we give our energy to that direct how we emotionally feel. You cannot think of truly positive, happy thoughts and be angry at the same time. The same goes for the opposite; to think about death, war, and starvation and be in a place of joy. (psychopaths may differ)

All emotions that go in between Love and Fear are just different versions of the same theme.

Happiness really is love, just look at a happy baby; no judgements just smiles.
Anger comes from a place of pain within, which either we experienced onto ourselves or from others and fear it.
Frustration is fear. Ask yourself why do you get frustrated, and then ask again on a deeper level why that bothers or affects you. It will again come from fear.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with feeling our emotions. That is what we are here to do. To experience life fully and feel as much of it as we can in our experiences, in our interactions with others, and in our various types of relationships.

Emotions are just waves of energy that allow us to feel. The more you can begin to let go of negative thoughts, past traumatic experiences, and ultimately forgive yourself and others, the more you can live freely and experience life as it comes without fear.

A great quote from the book Conversations with God (book 1) that describes how we are in relationships when it comes to love.

Love sponsors fear sponsors love sponsors fear….
In the moment you pledge your highest love, you greet your greatest fear.
For the first thing you worry about after saying “i love you” is whether you’ll hear it back. And if you hear it back, then you begin immediately to worry that the love you have just found, you will lose. And so all action becomes a reaction- defense against loss” – Neale Donald Walsch

There is nothing to lose, but only to gain. If you lose something then it was no longer needed in your life, and it’s making way for the new.

There is nothing to fear, only to love. When you are i a state of fear, you are unwell, you weaken your immune system, you make irrational and reactive decisions. When you love you move forward in life and are strengthened, empowered, as love is your true essence, your natural state, and things happen from the heart.

What have you overcome that you once feared?

FEAR is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards and harms.
LOVE is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares and heals.

You always have a choice of what emotion you want to feel and experience. Remember it all starts with a thought.
