Energy: connectedness to ALL

The seventh chakra, referred to as the thousand-petal lotus chakra. This is the top chakra of the seven and located at the crown of the head. 7th chakra is our source of enlightenment and spiritual connection to all that is. It is a connection to our higher selves, to every being on the planet, and ultimately the divine energy that creates everything in the universe.

The crown chakra, is where the masculine and feminine forces are said to unite with tremendous clarity and awakening. This chakra is also associated with wisdom, enlightenment and transcendence.

The crown chakra is associated with the following psychological and behavioral characteristics: • Consciousness • Awareness of higher consciousness, wisdom, of what is sacred • Connection with the formless, the limitless • Realization, liberation from limiting patterns • Communion with higher states of consciousness, with • Ecstasy, bliss • Presence

When the 7th Chakra is unbalanced or blocked, most individuals will feel like they have become spiritually unconnected and may feel like they are living a life without purpose or direction.

The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature.

There is no intellectual knowing at the level of seventh chakra, but there is serenity, joy, and deep peace about life.

You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of existence.

Affirmation:

* I live in the present moment

* I am grateful for all the goodness in my life

* I love and accept myself

* I know that all is well in my world

* I am connected with the wisdom of the universe

Diluting Essential Oils

Seriously dilution for all ages and skin types is the way to go when applying essential oils topically.

Not only does it help with absorption, but it also stretches your oils out for major cost effectiveness!

I keep a bottle of fractionated coconut oil next to my essential oils and when I want to apply one topically, I put a small pool of FCO in my hand first then add the essential oils.

Read more why our skin actually does a better job absorbing the EO.

Third Eye Chakra

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see -Henry David Thoreau

Associated with the element light and the color indigo blue, the sixth chakra is located between and just above the physical eyes, creating the spiritual third eye. While our two eyes see the material world, our sixth chakra sees beyond the physical. This vision includes clairvoyance, telepathy, intuition, dreaming, imagination, and visualization.

The sixth chakra is involved in both the creation and perception of art and in the recognition that what we see has a powerful impact on us. Even when we’re not aware of it, we’re all sensitive to the images we find in our environment.

When the third eye is excessively abuzz with energy, we experience headaches, hallucinations, nightmares, and difficulty concentrating. When this chakra is deficient, we have a poor memory, experience eye problems, have difficulty recognizing patterns, and can’t visualize well.

Practicing with closed eyes and using visualization supports this chakra. I love using clary sage essential oil for this energy center applied directly to the forehead (clary sage assists individuals in changing perceptions and encourages one to “see” the truth) and amethyst crystal helps to open intuition.

Affirmation: I see

Holistic Living

I love this time of year for so many reasons. When I first “woke up” it was in the spring. It was this time of year that I began walking daily and I literally started the process of shedding around 80 pounds of physical weight and as much—or more—in emotional weight. I planted seeds for a life I knew I deserved and I took tender care of the new growth.

Spring is a great time to look at making changes and start growing in new ways. With mindfulness, you can accomplish ANYTHING! I would love to help guide you—I offer personal 1:1 sessions either locally or via Skype or Zoom.

Mindfulness. Meditation. Yoga. Essential Oils. Nutrition. Holistic Living.

You’re worth it.

Beautiful Self

I was just sharing the other day that I wish I could sit down with my 30 year old self and have coffee.

I would have so much to tell her.

I would be sure to let her know that first and foremost she is so worthy, regardless of what size she is or how fast she can run. I would tell her to honor her precious body and learn to love and nurture it. I would ask her why she was hiding behind being busy all the time and help her to see that it’s okay to take off that armor. I would tell her that it’s okay to relax and enjoy life. I would let her know that while being serious serves her well, laugh a little more and see the silliness in life.

I would tell her that she has done, and will do, amazingly hard things in life but to trust in the path and to believe in herself…..what would you tell your youngest self?
