First Chakra Say . . .

hoodoo you love? what’s your magic together?

Think about the five people (human or animal or vegetable) with whom you spend the most time with right now. Who are they? Do you deliberately spend time with them? Are they your loved ones? What about the people you work with? Do you have children? Basically, what is your relationship with these people? Are your relationships satisfying, inspiring, and vibrant? What is your choice in having these relationships – do you feel you have one?

Invitation to Write Past the Mind and into the Chakras

Often, to write powerfully, even if only for ourselves, we have to move past what we “think” we should write. Have you ever asked yourself what your fears are about writing?

You don’t have to share your work with anyone, but if you are “dying” to tell a story and are afraid, chances are there is a part of you that is suffering for not letting it out.

Are you ready to let go of your intellectual understanding of what is “socially acceptable writing” and allow yourself to really say what you need to say?
Are you ready to let writing move through your body, into your energetic being, and trust what it’s saying to you?
Are you ready to release memories (or make up new ones), blocks, and sticky spots?
Are you ready for non-judgmental feedback, compassionate communication, and encouragement?

“The Art of Receiving” ~ Heart Chakra Love

Often when we become stressed, we put an extra burden on our bodies by cutting ourselves off from what we are feeling so that we can just “get through” the stress. Financial problems, work issues, and disharmonious relationships can really shut us down, not to mention reading or watching way too much news.

I received this message from Marie Manuchehri yesterday. In the message she talks about the heart or fourth chakra. She says:

The fourth chakra receives the highest amount of energy, in the form of abundance, for the human body. Reception occurs at the back mate of the chakra, right in-between your shoulder blades. When this chakra is open—its normal state—and allows energy in, it receives health, love, joy, and wealth. Many people refuse to receive, and energetically block this chakra, withholding deserved abundance and healing.
Considering that the heart chakra receives the highest amount of energy in the human body, it is understandable that it’s a good idea to keep it open and flowing. Check out Marie’s website for exercises for helping the heart chakra receive energy and to keep it from leaking energy.

One Must Forget Much to Live Here – recommended reading

One of the most salient lessons of the 20th Century has been the growing awareness that where atrocity has happened, acknowledgment of the terrible events through an act of contrition must be undertaken in order to facilitate healing among people. Less salient is the awareness that just such atonement must occur in relationship to the land as well. I have come to believe that if events are not properly memorialized, if they are repressed or suppressed or dismissed, the sufferings of all those involved (especially the wounded landscape which has literally absorbed the blood, and spiritually taken in the trauma) continue to live on in that geographical space—in the earth, herself—and subtly, unconsciously, influence those who currently occupy that land. The wounded landscape itself reaches out to those of us who occupy it by making its own memories, emotions, and traumas seem to be our own. It whispers to us its story, a story we notice first in the form of vague feelings, disturbing dreams, uncanny sensations, and dimly perceived shadows; feelings, sensations, and shadows we are obliged to recognize and honor if we are to understand and heal ourselves and our land.
This is a very thought-provoking piece – I recommend you take the time to read it.

Then, “Go to your bosom; Knock there, and ask your heart what it doth know.” (Shakespeare)

What time is it?

Another powerful message by my friend, Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch. He talks about prosperity, and recognizing what we already have (despite our possible beliefs or messages of lack and limitation:

Whatever you have right now, use it. Use the money, the time, the talents the abilities, the resources, the tools, the knowledge, the Wisdom, the Love, the Light. Are you waiting for the “right” time? The really right time is when you are drawing breath. If you are breathing, at this time, then this is the right time. Are you waiting for a “better” time? How about right now?
Enjoy the rest of this post, “Prosperous Minds Lead to Prosperous Lives: Using What You Have . . . ” at Robert’s new blog.
