"The hills are alive with the sound of music..."
Do you remember how Maria needed to sing? How she needed to dance and play? How she was considered incorrigible by the nuns who raised her, yet she still found ways to be herself?
The Sound of Music is a classic Throat Chakra story. Maria felt her need to express her truth in the form of song and dance intensely, and while she tried to behave in accordance with the nuns' expectations, she also was unwilling or unable to stop being herself.
The throat chakra is the energetic center where we connect with our personal truth and from which we express it. Many of us have suppressed this function, to the detriment of our health and fulfillment.
Use this throat chakra clearing and activation to release old weight and open up to your potential, the infinite possibilities inherent in living from your truth.
Heart Chakra Activation
For those of you who have been following along with this youtube chakra series, you may notice we skipped right over the heart chakra. If you're already signed up for my mailing list, and haven't yet received the link to this file, then drop me a note and I'll send it to you. If you haven't subscribed, sign up in the top lefthand corner to receive the heart chakra activation.
When I was little, my favorite movie was The Karate Kid. Viewed through the lens of the chakras, this movie glows yellow, the color of the solar plexus chakra.
The solar plexus is all about your personal power - knowing it, embodying it, and living from it.
The Karate Kid is an archetypal story of a wounded child - in this case a boy who is challenged by bullies - who embarks on a quest to claim his own power. Through the practice of karate, he discovers inner strength, confidence and self awareness.
The solar plexus chakra is the place in which we hold the seeds of our personal power. By removing blocks in this energy center, including traumas stored in our cellular memory and energetic imbalances, we restore our capacity to reach our potential.
If you've been seeking more personal power, this video is a great place to start.
Enjoy and I'll see you in the comments!
This summer, two of the great loves of my life found each other.
I brought my husband to yet another concert with the remaining members of the Grateful Dead, my all-time favorite band. In the past, he'd had positive yet unremarkable experiences.
On a magical night in July, a vortex of beautifully synchronized band members, a fantastic set list, and an iconic outdoor setting with generous dancing space birthed a holy experience for both of us.
Passion inspired by music, romance and creative endeavors are quintessential sacral chakra experiences. The sacral chakra is located below the naval, the zone from which our physical and etheric fertility flows.
When combined with love energy of the heart chakra, sacral chakra experiences can be utterly transcendent. If you haven't already, sign up for my mailing list and receive a free heart chakra activation, which brings all of other chakra activations to the next level.
Join me in this week's audio to ignite your center of passion and creativity, the sacral chakra.
Find some quiet time to listen to this guided meditation, and see what alights in you.
It's week two of the Uplevel Your Energy series!
This week, I'm releasing the Root Chakra clearing and activation. This energy center, located at the base of the spine, governs our sense of security and connectedness to the earth and to our human tribe.
You can listen to these audios in order or as inspired. There's no need to worry about catching up if you haven't yet listened to the spinal column activation from last week. Just follow your instincts, which are aligned with your interests.
As always, I'd love to hear from you in the comments.
