Very few people know that the 3rd chakra in the solar plexus is tied to the mind, but it’s the main reason we have a “gut” feeling when we make a decision and why scientists are now finding brain cells in our stomach lining. This chakra is all about your thinking and what you like and don’t like. It is powerful, and masculine, and it’s the home of your Divine Warrior.Read More
We have all experienced it: the smell of a parent or partner; the way we can fall into their arms; the ecstatic moment our children curl into us or we see our best friend’s face. I can recall many happy moments spent chatting with my mom as I rubbed her feet or she mine; or as a little girl when my friends and I would sit in a circle and play with each other’s hair. Conscious, loving touch is a force to be reckoned with and sometimes it is the only thing that can pull us back from despair or give us the strength to move forward in a challenging time.Read More

In this article, I’m going to share the best methods for the second chakra that resides in your pelvis. The second chakra is also known as the sacral chakra.

We can be thankful for them, because it’s easy to respond to a nice, smiling person with the same sort of positive energy, but our real spiritual “muscles” are cultivated when we interact with lower vibrational folks, because they challenge us to be more aware and not on auto pilot. With them, it quickly becomes an ego battle, unless we choose to be totally present, and heart-centered, so we might lift the entire interaction up to a higher frequency.Read More
It seems quite perfect that the Leo New moon comes in so very close to the end of the Leo sun’s actual reign (Virgo season starts on the 23rd) giving us the waxing phase of the moon with the waning phase of the sun cycle to elaborate and illuminate the sacrifices ready to be made in our lives.
