Clarity, Balance and Connection

Consider the chakra system of the human body. The Sanskrit word “Chakra” translates to “wheel” and is a spinning energetic center of the body. We have seven main chakras. The lower chakras, the root (1st-physical), the sacral (2nd-emotional) and solar plexus (3rd-mental) are aligned to support the heart chakra (4th). The heart is the conjunction within the body between the physical and the spiritual realms. The upper chakras, 5th (throat), 6th (third eye, the forehead) and 7th (the crown, which opens to Spirit) align to connect with the sacred, beyond our physical bodies.

A New Experience

Very recently, a client contacted me for help. Her retired service dog, a 15 year old Pomeranian I’ll call Squiggy had wandered off and had been missing for two days. While beloved pets who have crossed over to Spirit will sometimes come forward in the sessions I do, animal communication is not something I feel is in my wheelhouse.

Reflect and Release

December 3 was a beautiful, full “Super Moon”. My teacher and friend Sobonfu Somé taught me that the period from a full moon to a new moon (December 18th) is a very good time to release. We are also approaching Winter Solstice on December 21, 2017, our shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere with the least amount of daylight. Additionally, Mercury is currently in a retrograde cycle that began on December 3rd and will conclude on December 22nd. This is a very powerful time to be introspective, carving out time and space to dive inward, seeking a deeper understanding of ourselves and our soul’s journey. Continue reading “Reflect and Release”
