The quickest and easiest way to balance and align your chakras is to simply envision them along the vertical axis of your spine. Why? Because your thoughts and attention steer your energy. As surely as the steering wheel of a car moves the car right, left, forward, or back, your active focus tells your energy where to go. By simply seeing it aligned, we align it. As you repeatedly envision (steer!) your energy into the same vertical alignment, you train it to reside there — in the place of best balance and maximum flow.Read More
Doing shadow integration work allows you to own back ALL of yourself so you can genuinely love yourself and others unconditionally — warts and all.
It also frees up lots of energy that you’re using to try and “not be” certain qualities. As Divine Energy, you are everything. If you accept that, then you can consciously choose what parts of you you want to express in each moment. Conversely, if you don’t accept all of you, then the rejected parts will have a subconscious life of their own and will sometimes control you — often at very inconvenient times (lol).
Since we are in the upper chakras on this one, the “negative” or “dark” shadow qualities that I am bringing out here are things that come from the lack of third eye energy. I point out the gift of each shadow quality right too. Embracing the gift of a shadow quality is just one of many ways you can begin to integrate that quality into your being for more health and wholeness.Read More
Shadow integration is the realization that all our energy comes from one consciousness (the Divine) and we need it all to be whole. When we don’t integrate the shadow aspects of ourselves, they come out in subconscious (leaky) ways. When we understand that we are everything, we can act more consciously and accept all of ourselves and others. Shadow integration creates true peace both inwardly and outwardly.Read More
The heart is the social chakra. But because taking care of yourself needs to precede taking care of others (if you want to properly take care of others), when the heart chakra focus of putting others first takes over our lives without the healthy solar plexus chakra interest in equally honoring ourselves, we can fall into some odd subconscious, shadow patterns.Read More
The solar plexus chakra is the one that gets rejected the most because it’s the independent, “me” centered chakra. And it’s also the warrior chakra — the one that fights — so it can quite literally be a threat to others. It’s also the center of personal power. Without a strong solar plexus chakra, we live our lives as victims and believe that others have power over us, because when we can’t own our own solar plexus shadow qualities, we tend to project them onto others.Read More
Today, we are looking at the shadow qualities of the sacral chakra, which is the home of the Divine Feminine. The sacral chakra is orange, resides in the pelvis, and is all about the element of water. Some of its main qualities are creativity, flow, change, emotions, sensuality, intimacy and joy. It’s also the chakra of spontaneity, which may be why I ended up shooting this video “off the cuff” while attending a moody beach in Noordwijk outside of Amsterdam.Read More
