Solar Plexus Chakra

The Solar Plexus Chakra

The Solar Plexus Chakra, known as the Manipura or 3rd Chakra is located in the abdomen above the belly button. This center represents and supports your personal power. When healthy and aligned, you experience a sense of confidence that you can accomplish your goals and live out your purpose. This chakra is where your will to thrive and succeed is expressed. Just like the other chakras, once fear is introduced, your natural sense of confidence and empowerment can be compromised. When you feel fear or stress in your stomach, that […]

The Seven Chakras

The upcoming series of blog posts will be covering the seven main chakras in the chakra energy system. For those who aren’t as familiar, chakras are energy centers throughout the body.

Love Is Your Superpower (some post-election support)

The entire election process has been deeply stressful and given the unknowns ahead, it can be tempting to close up, shut down and numb out. It’s easy to look around and compare yourself to others and think ‘why am I having such a hard time right now when other people seem to be getting back to normal’ or ‘what’s wrong with people, they shouldn’t be getting back to normal’, or ‘what’s the problem with other people, why can’t they get on with life’? Each of us has our own way […]

The Art of ReWilding

Every year I spend time in a hut in the Amazon to reset, return to my natural rhythms, to listen deeply to my Spirit and explore my wild and authentic self. I think of it as rewilding. While I wish that everyone would give themselves some time ‘off the grid’, I understand that it isn’t always easy to do given career, kids, commitments, etc. When I return to modern life, I can immediately notice an increase in the pace and stress and a decrease in my sense of vitality and […]

Earth’s Universal Diner

What better time than now to focus on renewing your connection with your heart’s desires and designing supports to have you keep those desires alive and nurtured until they fully manifest. Let’s start with this short, short story that I love by Chellie Campbell from her book “The Wealthy Spirit”. The Waitress and the Short Order Cook The waitress has worked here since time began.  Ageless and calm, her eyes see through to the end of the world.  She smacks her gum, gives the customer a lopsided grin, and smoothly […]

A Life In Balance

A life in balance.  Many can’t even imagine it.  Well get ready to not only imagine it but to also take targeted steps to actualize the experience of balance in your everyday life. Balance is not a destination at which you will eventually arrive, or a static condition you attain. Balance is a living, vibrant conversation occurring daily between you and the world around you. This conversation takes place specifically through your choices made moment to moment. When those choices are designed by you and informed by what really matters […]

Are You Emotionally Malnourished?

There is an erroneous perspective many people hold about their feelings. Many think that they can’t feel happy, accomplished, loved, or beautiful unless something external happens to give them permission to.  It’s an outside-in perspective.  For example… I can’t feel beautiful until I lose weight, I can’t feel at peace as long as I have things on my to-do list, I can’t feel loved if I’m not in a romantic relationship, I can’t feel confidence in myself when someone else disapproves, I can’t feel happy when there are people suffering […]

Authentic Living

In this Ted.com video, Brené Brown does a wonderful job of addressing living authentically and the challenges that we face in the process.  She talks about embracing vulnerability which spoke right to my heart. Here is the link… https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability To summarize her 4 recommendations… 1. To let ourselves be deeply and vulnerably seen. 2. To love with our whole hearts, even if there is no guarantee. 3. To practice gratitude and joy, even in the moments of terror. 4. To believe that we are enough.  Being kinder and gentler to self […]
