The Root Chakra

ROOT CHAKRA OVERVIEW

The root chakra is associated with our groundedness and our ability to feel comfortable in our human bodies. The primal needs for survival and shelter are part of this energy system as well. The root chakra is our connection to the physical world. When we are born into our human bodies, it is this chakra that helps us understand all that comes with experiencing the physical world. The root chakra is associated with how we interact in group dynamics such as the family, work environments, communities, or any other situation where group interaction skills are used.

Sexual Experiences and Trust

HOW DO WE BEGIN TO EMPOWER OURSELVES SEXUALLY?

Eliminate the work and stress from sex: (Continued from Previous Blog Post)

5. Trust. The most satisfying sexual experiences typically come in relationships based on trust. Trust allows you to be more comfortable with who you are sexually, eliminates worry about how your body looks, and eliminates concern about sharing your true desires and communicating your needs to your partner. It creates the comfort zone for exploration.

Questions to discuss with your partner:

Do you trust your partner in the bedroom?

Do you feel relaxed or uptight during sex?

Do you feel your partner may hold something against you that you shared or tried during a sexual experience with him/her?

Do you wish you could try different sexual positions or experiment with toys with your partner, but are concerned he/she might think you’re strange?

Does your partner have “weird” fantasies that concern you or that you don’t feel comfortable exploring?

Do you and your partner share your fantasies with each other?

Two Ways of Love

Within the expansion of spiritual awareness comes the concept of love. There are two ways of loving: one is with conditions (which is the way most people show love) and one is without any conditions at all.

Conditional love is based on control. It is when your behavior shows, “I will love you  only if…” but you don’t actually say it to your child. Examples of this are when your child does something that you don’t like that limits your ability to love purely, or, when you have an idea of something your child should be, but is not, and you hold back love. This happens all the time, and most people aren’t even aware that they are doing it. We like to think that we strive to give unconditional love.

“To love unconditionally, we love with no strings attached.” Click To Tweet

Loving unconditionally  is the process of allowing children to be who they are and loving exactly what you see in them. It has nothing to do with control and everything to do with freedom. It is the ability to celebrate your child in their uniqueness.

Energy and the Chakra System

To understand the chakra system, it is necessary to become familiar with the concept of ENERGY. Everything in the universe, including human beings, is made up of energy. Because we each vibrate at our own special frequency, we are unique as human beings. The chakra system is basically the energetic “roadmap” of the physical body. By getting in touch with our chakra system, we find each one holds its own messages and information that provides us with the opportunity to see where we may be blocked in our lives.

These blockages–be they physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual–are quiet indicators of how well we are living our lives, as well as where there may be room for improvement. We simply need to open our minds to evaluating the landscape.

The picture above illustrates the location of the seven chakra/energy systems in the human body. Another way to look at them is comparing them to the parts of a tree, with the root being at the bottom and the crown at the top in this order:

7. Crown Chakra – Top of the Head
6. Brown Chakra – Forehead
5. Throat Chakra – Throat
4. Heart Chakra – Chest
3. Solar Plexis Chakra – Stomach
2. Pelvic Chakra – Pelvis
1. Root Chakra – Base of the Spine

Create an escape with the images

Use your imagination to play and become very creative. Imagine your Healing Symbol as very large, very grandiose in size and shape. Picture it illuminated with white light or possibly in a meadow bathed in sunshine. Whatever vision you conger up to signify beauty and light is good because it is meant to represent purity and healing.

Now, allow your Healing Symbol to move toward your Blocking Symbol. Allow your mind’s eye to visualize your Healing Symbol slowly engulfing your Blocking Symbol as if the two are joining in love. No judgments or negative opinions surround the Blocking Symbol, rather it is an opportunity to embrace your pain and the blocks that have been holding you back. You are recognizing the blocks have served a valuable purpose at one time– perhaps a form of protection–but now you are free to release them and heal. You can now move to a better, more productive place.

Eliminate the work and stress from sex

HOW DO WE BEGIN TO EMPOWER OURSELVES SEXUALLY?

Eliminate the work and stress from sex:

1. Communication. It is very important to communicate with your partner in a gentle, non-threatening manner. Always approach sexual topics with an open mind and an open heart.

Questions to discuss with your partner:

How would you describe the type of communication you have with your partner?

Do you feel comfortable sharing intimate feelings and ideas with your partner?

Do you communicate during an argument or does it escalate to the point of no return?

How do you end up resolving a conflict–through passive-aggressive means until it fades away or are you comfortable talking about how to resolve the issue at hand?

Do you feel like you can share your sexual fantasies with your partner?

Do you know how to communicate with your partner in a loving, compassionate way?

An example of spiritual living

When parenting you need to have rules and consequences for behavior, but sometimes what goes missing within the family dynamic is a depth of spiritual significance. This does not mean that you must be a church member or identify with a certain religion. It does mean that you get in touch with your spiritual self. When you use your creativity, humor and imagination to solve family problems, you are using the gifts of your spirit for the greater good. When you give yourself the space to be who you are, you will be able to grant your child the same kind of space in which to grow and allow them to learn about their own spirit.

Spirituality means searching for your truth, recognizing that people are different in their own unique ways, celebrating your gifts and learning to share them with the world for connection and healing. There is far more depth to your life than your everyday routine. Know when you are stuck. Have the courage and the inspiration to dig deep into your soul to know how to change for the better.

It is intuitive wisdom that tells us we can do anything our heart desires. Click To Tweet

If you pay attention to this intuitive voice, you will model this behavior for your children. Later, they will model this for their own children.

Raising children involves teaching them to search for their purpose and to learn to create their own happiness, to listen to their heart and feel the confidence to follow it no matter what others think. Parents must expect children to ultimately answer to themselves and not feel the need to impress others or seek unnecessary approval. The way to do this is to use your intuition. This is an example of spiritual living.

Intuition is one of our greatest assets as human beings. We are all born with intuitive wisdom, but we don’t always pay attention to this inner voice. As parents, we may not have been socialized to embrace our own intuition, so we don’t encourage our children to listen to theirs.  When parents give themselves permission to expand this level of awareness, it enriches their lives and overflows into the lives of their children.

Make Valentine’s Day a Family Affair

 

Julianna Lyddon spent another amazing afternoon with Channel 12 on the Arizona Midday show.  She shared some suggestions on how to make Valentine’s Day a family affair!  She says we can spread the love while you are spending the day together.

Some ideas to get you prepared and how to get started:

  • Have a prep party – have your kids invite their friends over to prepare valentines for school
  • Create a Valentine Phone Chain – Call loved ones that may be out of town and remind them that you love them and ask them to spread the love by calling someone else
  • Share the love – Get the family together to create and then to deliver and share valentines with those in nursing homes or closed other community centers and hospitals
  • Treasure Hunt – Make clues and create your own treasure hunt throughout the home or out at the park.  Use clues that are developmentally appropriate for your children’s age.
  • Candlelight Dinner with the kids – Ask your kids for suggestions on meals and have a candlelit dinner with their help in preparing and setting up.

 

Be sure to have a special date night with your partner at least once a month to keep a happy and healthy family unit.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Celebrate Life Collection

 
Meet my beautiful mother-in-law, Margaret! I have tears of joy as I post this.
 
Margaret passed away a couple of weeks ago and as I was talking to one of my team members at Enlighten Candles Arizona about the funeral, we were inspired to create something special that could be a token of her life and a way to always have her energy with our family.
 
Out of my grief, a new collection was born We now have the Celebrate Life Collection where we will customize these 11″ candles with pictures of your loved ones and/or your beloved pet and for those that are suffering with an illness, we recommend sending us a picture that makes you feel calm and happy and we can put it on our candle so that you can use it as a focal point for healing. We also have created special options for veterans, as well.
 
It’s such a beautiful way to keep the spirit of your loved one close. As the flame lights the picture from behind, I feel as though she is with me. I find myself carrying the candle from room to room and talking to her. As crazy as that sounds, it feels so good to have her smiling face shining back at me.
 
I love you Gigi and thank you for inspiring this new collection so many others can feel the energy of their loved ones as the candle illuminates their spirit🙏🏻 Thank you to my gifted designer, @xox_kayyla, for intuitively knowing how to create each masterpiece from her heart! I’m so blessed to have such an amazing team😘
