Book Recommendation: Wheels of Life, The Classic Guide To The Chakra System by Anodea Judith

anodea judith wheels of lifI’ve just about finished this beautifully written book of wisdom and I read it pretty fast too. It’s detailed description of the seven chakra system is as useful as it is enlightening. Anodea Judith PH.D. is an absolute expert on the subject and goes into depth about each energy centre and making suggestions that are easy to use such as breathing techniques, yoga asanas and meditations. Wheels of life was first released in 1999, and now 20 years later is more relevant than ever.

To be honest the reason I bought this particular book was because it goes next level and gives some truth to telepathy and clairvoyance in a matter of fact way speaking from experience both from her many clients and personal experience.

These extra sensory perceptions are not limited to super natural films but are being widely discovered by humans everywhere. I just love that if someone doesn’t believe that every human has the potential to be psychic I can now direct them to a credible source and specific energy centre, not just say look at ‘WikiHow’.

Our world is changing and has been changing since it’s evolution, Judith makes correlations between historical events and astrological cycles and confirms that humanity is currently in the midst of moving upward from the solar plexus issues of  control and power to the heart chakra where we are becoming connected, more unified, accepting and compassionate. One example being the circular economy, giving less energy to capitalism’s buy and throw model to a buy, swap, sew, fix, upcycle, recycle, gift  and basically keep using what we have instead of buying new.

Anodea has written a number of books to educate people in a way that is easily adaptable to westerners, Eastern Body, Western Mind which talks about addiction and sexuality in relation to eastern philosophy, and The Chakra System, A user’s guide to self diagnosis and healing  which takes the reader on a journey through that seven chakras root to crown detailing deficiencies and over active traits of each one, with yoga asanas specific to each chakra, starting with very important grounding techniques.

If you are on the journey of self discovery Anodea Judith is a worthy source of wisdom that can enlighten you on a number of issues we deal with in life. Easy to use, simple advice for personal empowerment and development.

 

 

Solar powered Solar plexus

It is so important to have a healthy solar plexus to bring our ideas and desires to life.

I think of  the solar plexus and directly relate it to physical action, confidence, our motivation and will power.

Our solar plexus and sense of power can be influenced by many factors in this instance I would like to mention authority figures.

Think about it.

People in power have authority and if you are subject to this power you lose your own sense of personal power, your self worth and belief in yourself which in affect can directly change the desired outcome of your manifestations.

What we manifest into our life has a direct correlation to what we believe we are worthy of as well, another characteristic of this chakra.

Our level of self worth more or less determines the life we live, if we want to manifest an oasis our energy needs to be in alignment – L.O.A.

The Law of Attraction is an interesting one, I have read The Power the sequel of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. In fact I found it in a free library next to Romeo & Juliet and it tells some amazing real life happenings of how this universal law manifests itself for her in literally miraculous ways.

Now, I am wondering; how beneficial is it to see something and manifest it into your life if it isn’t in alignment with your soul urge and life purpose.

At this point in my life I am looking at how I have manifested a dream job and lifestyle but the feeling of contentment isn’t here and I believe the reason that it feels off is these manifestations disregarded my soul urge. On top of that a lack of confidence in myself means I can not fully connect to the higher chakras and my higher self.

They were a combination of my wants mixed with the feeling I need to satisfy my parents in some way. Our relationships that are typically authoritarian seem to be between parents and children, teachers and students and people promoting societal norms despite an individuals preferences.

It is never a popular decision for a person to be non-conformist to these kind of authority figures but energy wise it is much more beneficial to follow your hearts yearning. If you conform to their ideas if can create blocks in your solar plexus.

Solar plexus blockages include thing like feeling not good enough, a small blockage can result in a lack of confidence where a more severe blockage affects self-esteem and will take longer to heal. You may notice people who feel the need to control everyone and everything around them, who lack direction, possess a sense of helplessness and unresolved guilt all stemming from a blocked solar plexus. Physical symptoms include poor digestion and poor short term memory.

Strengthening your solar plexus involves practicing will power, a good way to do this is by setting attainable goals and ticking them off. You may need to be assertive in your communications with other people. Being physical is also good advice as it is a masculine energy centre it uses yang energy, energy that you put out, so moving your body by running, dancing, doing yoga asanas and even just a workout focusing on you abdominal muscles can all help to get energy flowing through this powerful place.

 

Happy healing!

 

 

Surround me with Truth

When we grow we change and everything around us changes too. This can be like a two steps forward one back. Two steps into the light and one step through the shadow.

Awareness is great to see how we feel, we used to be in environments and love them and now we feel differently. We have grown and this is how it feels.

We are looking for something deeper and more authentic not so surface level, maybe on the surface level we can see who is confident in their skin and who isn’t.

We can see our insecurities. in others and we can have compassion or we can just gravitate away.

If we look back a few years and realise you loved nothing more than something covered in melted cheese anything with cheese on it, I would love to eat. I don’t  feel the same these days I’m gradually liking healthier whole foods, Scenes based around alcohol don’t interest me.

It’s interesting. When we have been living in a bubble of our own – yoga, mediation, tea and coffee alternatives and kombucha and go to a new place or interact with someone who is not yet off of junk food who has never heard of kombucha and has no idea what it is becomes a nice reality check.

We are all unique individuals following our own path and some aren’t aware yet.

This happens to me a lot about plastic pollution, I feel like EVERYBODY knows that innocent animals are suffering because of single use plastic pollution and they can easily avoid it, but I still see it. Change is a process, I guess. I’m not perfect.

As above, so below. I still can improve and maybe that’s why I see these things.

Stingrays and Sensitivities

Several times within the last week on my daily beach visit I encountered the beautiful stingray.

It was swimming by me to take a closer look

It was getting stepped on by me accidentally while I was wading through the water.

The day before several large stingrays were flying through the water around me

On a different day, a wee little baby one appeared and it was hiding itself away in the sand with it’s eyes starring at me.

Walking over the sand flats too, I saw the indent of an adult and baby stingray.

This is when I thought to myself it has to be a sign!

The stingray has been quite fitting to my current situation. I’m a fairly sensitive and empathic person who like a stingray can sense energy around me quite well but I have been working on fine tuning these abilities while protecting myself from negativity,  psychic attacks, and the like. So this was when I decided to take the message of the stingray to heart and protect myself psychically by energetically grounding myself. The stingray is a great symbol of grounding particularly in emotionally turbulent times like they stay close to the sea floor while the ocean currents move around above them they remain stable and protected.

Hope this post gives you a different perspective you can apply to your current situation.

Step by Step

Lately I have been working on being more grounded, meaning I have a job I enjoy, that pays me well every week, still gives me leisure time and time to work on myself.

I believe we create our reality and our choice to believe in a more positive, enjoyable or just progressive life makes us one step closer to this reality. The second being our actions.

So when an idea is planted it is just a seed but that seed does something, it grows. It’s a natural growth but it takes a bit of effort a bit of concentrated life force. Action!

More important than anything as I mentioned before is BELIEF. I met a german lady, a pretty spiritual lady, connected to earth and plants particularly. She would garden naked, talk to her seedlings and sing to them, nurturing them so they grew to provide for us. Who shared some wisdom with me “the most important thing in life is our believings”

Next thing to focus on was transcendence. I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe it was to not take life to seriously or maybe it was in terms of manifestion. In order to manifest we transend the third dimension.

Which is how we make GROWTH! How we plant seeds and how they grow. Sometimes life just happens but if you want to consciously create a better world – take action and believe in your ideas no matter how out there they seem and GROW!

reading this back it is such good advice for myself but I’ll share it anyway, maybe someone else will benefit. We’re all in this together.

The Soul Shines Through Creativity

img_3445

Something I wrote while drawing in a park 4/5 years ago – 2015

I love the quote “Creativity is the way I share my soul with the World” by Brene Brown, I simply couldn’t have said it better myself. Since the radical accelerated shift I have experienced in recent years, I have come across piece of art and words like I have shared above that have obviously come from my higher self or a being that knows more than I did. It was as if I was the channel or in a moment where my higher self and I were in harmony drawing and just letting whatever was there to be expressed.

I have also noticed that I would feel  spontaneously creative at random times. I have always loved drawing, but sometimes you just know that it was a form of communication.

The paintings I made often preempted events in my life, which ended up teaching me some valuable things but at the time I was totally unaware – result – Mindblown. A really obvious example of this was when I sat in my backyard with a big piece of wood and painted with water-coloured pencils big circles – yellow, green, red, orange, blue etc, different sizes with  black background. A little while later, I found found myself in a Vipassana meditation centre and one night the archangels in different coloured orbs visited me, Archangel Raphael was obvious and matched his description to have a green orb and his wings made circular patterns around him. Mary was also there, Uriel, Michael and someone else. I believe they came to heal me but to be honest I was a little scared.

This sort of thing happens regularly, I feel the urge to be creative in whatever way then I wonder why I drew what I drew and finally my questions are answered, All at the right time I guess.

Does this happen to you, How do you communicate with your higher self and spirit guides?

 

Thank-you in advance, I’m so grateful for your comments.

I am grounded and growing

“I am grounded in the physical plane”

“I am grounded in the physical plane”

“I am grounded in the physical plane”

As 2018 was well known to be the year of mass awakenings and now it’s 2019, I’m going to make my mantra for the year a step up from the 2018 one above to “I’m grounded and growing”.

I know we’re not alone and I have personal experiences of paranormal activity and a wider perspective than your average ‘normie’.

Intuitives have told me I need to ground myself, and to be honest I’m quite confused of what that means. I visualise roots going into the ground below me as if I am a plant, I’ve been connected to the ground through earthing, I have said “Good morning grandfather sun”, I’ve listened to all sorts of advice, I’ve tried to just get a job and be as normal as possible, but I found it difficult when you are having an upgrade to function if you know what I mean. It seems my sensitivity is increasing and I’m guided to read certain books.

I would identify myself as a starseed and I thought it was only a recent thing but when I look back at my drawings they were featuring light beams and Egyptian themes long before I had awareness of energy and empathic abilities. I think back to people calling me ‘spacey’ and now it’s making sense to me. People have said ‘you’re here to show them how to love’.

But if it is all true that star seeds are like volunteers that have come to earth to help it to ascend. We still need to make changes in the physical plane even if we are from a different planets originally we are all earthlings now.

People on earth come from 163 different galactic races and the goal is to be united, in the physical to live in peace together, each race is different and maybe we are all just one big experiment but it would be beneficial for everyone to work together in a respectful way to move into the 5th dimension.

So it’s helpful in some way to drop the starseed label and just connect as humans. Naturally we will gravitate towards those on a similar vibration.

We all have a purpose here and maybe it’s as simple as doing what brings YOU joy. 

If these feelings resonate with you, let me know in the comments below.13129422_1724005401171775_1841335646_n

 

Life’s a Beach

Life metaphors are my favourite kind of metaphors, the way nature can speak to you can really resonate. You could also say that I love when you can interpret something two ways, especially if there is a literal way.

I believe beaches are B-E-A- U-tiful, It’s where I spend my time in the hot sun shine, white sandy shores and clear blue water, in soft playful waves.

Other times it can be a raging set of waves where I am in over my head and a board strapped to my leg, wondering if I will survive, if I will get out alive. It’s funny because I know it’s just my fear. Where I go I’m lucky that there is soft sand below and the waves only rise up to about two metres.

It’s good to know though that everyone has different limits, we can be totally at ease in the ocean at all times, or we can remember back to when it traumatised us and made us cry.

But I think it’s important to remember the good times and train ourselves to get back out there even if we are dumped, if we’ve been around a washing machine and spat out, if we have been exhausted by the constant onslaught of waves coming at us one after another. It is OK to sit out for a bit watching the ocean do it’s thing.

We want to keep on pushing through though because we know when we get out to the back of this constant onslaught of waves, We can drop into that sweet spot and that feeling is what keeps us coming back for more.

Yep, Life’s a B-E-A-C-H.
