Now is the Right Time!!

Between New Moons, Full Moons, Lunar Eclipses, and Solar Eclipses … energies are pulling us towards our path.  Right now, my beautiful state is on fire, and the world is facing a strong series of natural disasters and it makes you wonder, is this is Climate Control or The Rapture…either way and no matter what you believe it’s happening.  Whatever it is, it’s a call to action.

The call to action is to find your path and take it.  I didn’t even realize what was going on in the world because I steer away from media due to the lack of knowledge that is being represented in our country.  Our world is being severely attacked by mother nature and our president (not capitalized on purpose) is fighting with a man as crazy as he is.  It’s depressing.

But, what’s not depressing is I woke up this morning.  I fed the kids breakfast and was so happy to see them off to school and hearing them shout out how they will miss me and they love me and in that moment I realized that it’s all about the NOW!  When is that concept going to resonate with the rest of the world?  I’ve known it and tried to implement it into my life, but all the heartaches of the past were consuming me.

This moment has been coming for me, It’s been through tears,  releasing and working on my book.  Discovering what my truth is.  I forgot what my true passions and dreams were.  Working towards my personal goals and seeing them come to completion is only part of it.  My goals are not just to write, or practice Yoga, but to drop off the kids at school to their smiles and excitement to come home and hang out with me and watch movies and eat popcorn and read books about dragons.  That is a goal, that is my path to greatness, those moments… and this moment writing and living.  I feel an appreciation for this world that is now going through our greatest fears.

If we all take the time to say “Thank You!”  Thank you, Mother Goddess and Father God…whoever, when it’s all said and done, it really doesn’t matter.  Let’s appreciate our world now!  Forget the idiots running this world and threatening to destroy it with their nuclear weapons, it’s time to be humans that pray together and believe together and be happy together.  The sun will shine and the rain will come, but have faith in all you do at this moment! Follow your dreams now and forever, because it’s only the beginning. Every day is a blessing.

With Peace in My Heart!! Blessed Be,

Embracing Insecurity

We all have insecurities and some of us more than others.  Most of the time we let those insecurities rule our lives and keep us from living.  No, unfortunately, life is not as kind as we would like it to be and some people are really mean and some people really don’t care one way or the other.

All those people, don’t matter.  If you are insecure about your body, your looks, your financial situation…or whatever it is that keeps you from living, that is your insecurity and nobody else’s.  I’m going to ask that you try to embrace it, try to own it and then deal with it.

I will own that I am insecure about all the above things that I’ve mentioned.  I’ve been in relationships that made me feel not pretty enough, not thin enough and my kids make me insecure because I don’t have money to buy that toy that we saw at Kmart.  The funny thing about insecurities is that nobody pushes them on us, we take them upon ourselves and make them what they are.  And you know that we can make them pretty big.  They make us feel unhappy or unwanted or like a failure.

I’m sure it’s not my sons’ intention to make me feel that way when we can’t buy something or go to the pool on a nice day.  It’s not my husbands’ fault that I don’t understand the way a man’s mind works.  That I can’t wrap my head around things that some men find attractive and it has nothing to do with me.  He has never made me feel unattractive or unloved.  He’s never stepped out on me, but these are things that have made me insecure for a long time.  It wasn’t until one day, I realized it’s not about me.  I can’t control how other people think. Not even the people closest to me.  Just the way that they can’t control my mind.  We are all individuals, with our own thinking and our own feelings and we have to love others for who they are and they have to love us for who we are.  Life is made of choices, at any time if you feel insecure about anything you can walk away from it, you can make it go away.  Nothing is set in stone.

I could go on for days blaming other people for my insecurities but at the end of the day.  They are mine and mine alone.  I know it’s hard to embrace what hurts you, but how else can you heal them?  Healing takes place where there is love and intention for what needs be healed.  If your intention is to be healthy, then take action…what’s going to make you healthy.  If you want to write…write. Do the work.  Embrace what is there and heal it.

I’ve come to a point that if I like me If I take care of me and I don’t let the outside actions or thoughts of others bring me down, I can overcome my insecurities.  Battling Insecurities isn’t always just changing your mind and deciding that it’s not going to bother you anymore.  Battling insecurities is taking action, picking up a sword and fighting for your inner power and doing things that make you feel empowered.

You won’t write a book, waiting for the right computer to come along, that’s just an excuse because you let someone tell you that you can’t be a writer because you can’t handle rejection.  You won’t lose those unwanted pounds sitting on the couch eating a bag of chips and being depressed because you are too tired from all those carbs that you forget to go outside and live your life no matter what.  When you take action against those insecurities you start to make them go away and you get excited about life.

I was so insecure about myself, but I realized I had to get out and do things for my family. I embraced my insecurities, they were there, but so was my family.  I started doing things like field trips and volunteer work.  Next thing you know, I’m taking action on my health and making things happen in my life.  I’m walking streets I’ve never been and making new friends and embracing my path as a healer and a writer.

It doesn’t matter what I look like, but how I feel about myself.  It’s about letting go of the dream of who I want to be and being who I want to be.  I’m a Mama, a healer, and a writer.  I aspire to be a yoga teacher and a novelist and the best person I can be.  But for now, I’m aspiring to be me in the present in the potentiality of who I can still become.  Life changes and you have to roll with it and the people around you, but you don’t have to buy into what doesn’t resonate in making you whole.  Nobody will do it for you, you have to do it yourself.

It’s okay to love yourself and the parts you think you can’t.

Many Blessings,

Elena, Your Chakra Faery

 

Don’t Lose Your Cool

Many people have told me I have a nice disposition.  I’m a good person, I’m quiet and I’m a good friend.  These are things that I strive for.  I will keep my mouth shut if there is something bothering me, just so I don’t offend someone.  I want everyone to be happy, even if I’m not.  Even if I don’t agree with someone.

This is me generally, my children know that I can totally lose my s#@t.  They have seen it, and sometimes they take advantage of the fact that I will instantly feel bad about being a grumpy mom.  The grumpy mom could have been prevented if they just listened or did what they were supposed to.

How is it so easy to be real with the kids, and not truly rude people, that don’t have manners and are rude and impolite and have no respect?  For awhile, I will try my best to appease people and yet it won’t be what or when and instead of speaking out before things got out of hand…I wait…I wait until that person totally pisses me off and then I will let them know what’s been on mind.

Do I feel good about it? No, absolutely not.  I like being a good person, I like doing what I can when I can.  I put my family first and I yet, I will be nicer to the person who talks to me like a child rather than an adult.  I’ve come to the realization, I don’t respond well to being talked down to.  If someone has a lack of respect for me, then at some point, I’ll dish it back…and my cool is gone.  Which is super lame, because it’s not like they are caring about me or you if you have the same problem.

So, when do you lash back, without feeling guilty about it?  Oh, and I’m so vicious, I choose to defend myself and use exclamation marks.  But the point is, what good is it? What good is it to let someone force you to lose your cool.  I’m not trying to make anyone lose it…I’m just living my life, the best I can. If that’s an excuse well then that is a them problem and not a me problem.

I’m just getting to a point to where I am not a doormat, I am one person living the most positive life I can.  This life is the life we are living and being angry is not good for anything and throws that root chakra right into fight mode or flight, depending on how much cool someone loses.

I guess that the reason for this blog, is simple…pick your battles.  You can’t please everyone and you can try, but it’s not worth the smile that got wiped off your face over a text or a rude comment.  Stand your ground, don’t lose your sh%@ and smile and give it your all one day at a time.

Holding it together and Laughing to myself, after all, is said and done!!  I can be so dramatic.

Sincerely,

Elena, The Chakra Faery

Matters of Manifestation

I truly feel that healing one’s soul is powered by their manifesting minds.  I know that some people don’t believe, and think it’s luck or a well-timed situation, but I can honestly say that I’ve been working on self-healing.  As a healer, who better to practice on than me.

The last few months, I’ve been working on stepping out of my bubble.  I began writing this blog, working on getting my home business up and running and getting myself out of the house.  This may not sound like much to you, but because of my self-consciousness, it was very hard for me to walk out the door.  I felt like the world was judging me.  I didn’t fit the mold of what I should look like as a healer, a mother or a wife.  I realized that I wasn’t taking care of myself or my inner thoughts of who I was.  I’m pretty sure it was my own identity crisis.

Getting me out of the house was huge, and finding clothes to wear and taking my children here and there and not hiding from who I was, well to say the least was exhausting.  I realized that I kept challenging myself.  As many of us are, we are our own worst enemies.  I don’t believe anyone was judging me and I stopped caring if they were because I had decided to put more of an effort into what I wanted from my life.  Basically, it was to just live, to get out there and do it.  It steered me briefly from my writing and although I thought about it often, I felt that there was more for me to experience and feel to write about my healing and how the Chakras and Spirituality effect our lives and how we live them.

After I wrote about each individual Chakra, I felt like I had to do and live what I was writing about.  I sat and visualized what it would be like to be that mom who takes her kids out on the weekend, and the mom who tries to stay healthy so that she is not too tired to do the things like hiking and chasing and getting out of the house.  I saw what I wanted, I began manifesting and suddenly we were making a little extra money to get out and do things, I started a healthy eating plan (I’m down 15 lbs FYI) and I’m spending time at the park and going on hikes.  I ended up getting a part-time job at our local museum, that requires me to go out and meet new people. Most importantly, I’m gaining self-confidence,  grounding myself and creating.

It all starts with who you see yourself as and who it is you are hiding.  Let your inner soul shine.  See yourself as the person you are meant to be and manifest the heck out of that person.  Next, on my manifestation list is writing and healing in my home business.  Manifesting the great healer that I know I am, but knowing that my clients will see me as a great healer as well.

It all starts with what you really want and when you really want it. You need to take action, determination, and perseverance to get it done.  You will be happy you did.

Enjoy Life!!

With All My Love,

Follow Your Intuition

Last week I talked about the Ajna (third eye) Chakra being my favorite because it was the first Chakra I began to work with.  This is important people, this Chakra is crazy important because it works really hard to get your attention and sometimes we ignore it and then we really regret it.

When I purchased my first deck of Oracle cards, I didn’t realize that I would begin to recognize my intuition or gut instincts speaking out to me.  It has become too familiar a feeling for me after all these years to ignore it now.  Your intuition guides you through intense feelings, butterflies in your stomach, the pressure in your head and dreams of course.  Always pay attention to your dreams.  I recommend a dream journal.  If you are open-minded to the idea of using Oracle Cards, they are a wonderful asset to utilize while working with your intuition.

Your intuition has a lot of insight into what’s going on in your life.  It’s called the third eye for a reason.  Let’s say you go by day in and day out, and life is happening all around you, but you are too busy to see outside of your bubble.  Your intuition knows what’s up.  For example, your kid is trying to pull a fast one on you.  Where are you going? What are you doing?  These are questions you ask, am I right?  But something in their answer makes you stop and think.  It’s like your Ajana opens up like the eye of Sauron and you just know… “what?” you ask your child, where are you going? And then it’s like all of a sudden your child is speechless.  Words aren’t articulating with them.  Hmmm…good call Ajna.  Ajna is a great bull shit detector.

When was the last time, you had a feeling and did the opposite of what you knew you were supposed to do?  Did you think to yourself, “Damn, I should have listened to myself.” Or, you did listen to yourself and everything went completely wrong, but really it didn’t and something better happened?  Ajna will sometimes know what’s better for you and works with the universe to conspire to get you where you need to be. Either way, it’s best if you listen to your feelings.

Working with the Ajna also helps you to see what is really going on around you, in you and in the world.  Journal, use Oracle cards and honor your feelings.  These will make your Ajna Chakra very happy.  Guided Intuition is a gift we no longer need to afraid of.  So open your mind,  subscribe to an oracle page, do something outside of your bubble!

Here’s looking at you kid!!

The Crown Chakra…Thousand Petal Lotus

Sahasrara or Crown Chakra is the final Chakra on our road to balance.  When we ride through all of our chakras, our destination is finding the spirit within us.  We often look outside of ourselves to find this spirit.  The common ground of our imbalances that I have witnessed for myself, is that we create them.  We are the monster under the bed, we are our own personal de-mentors sucking the joy, the positivity and the faith out of our system of balance.

With each Chakra you can find a connection to your crown chakra.  With your root chakra, you stay grounded here on the earthly plain, while still finding spiritual connections without getting lost in the clouds.  The Sacral Chakra allows you to take your sexuality and emotions to a spiritual level, without the dogma of the guilt that is brought upon us in mainstream religions.  The power of positivity that comes from the Solar Plexus, gives you the joy and confidence that a strong spiritual practice can bring into your life, the heart chakra is by far, the love and compassion that pours through you for yourself and others.  This leads to the door of your Crown Chakra.  The Throat Chakra allows you to speak your inner truth, the truth that is you and your authentic self, what you share to the world and your Ajna, the eye that allows you to see and recognize that the divine spirit is within you.

It is this combination that opens your crown chakra.  The violet energy of the crown flows through you and reflects the ancient knowledge that all of us hold inside.  Believing in yourself above all that you have been taught is a step closer to your own divinity.

Have you ever noticed that when you doubt yourself, you throw yourself down the spiral staircase of who you are?  I sometimes doubt my journey…and then I stop writing or I stop healing, because how can I be these things?  I haven’t been to college to be a writer or worked with an ancient shaman.  Yet, when I write, people enjoy my writing and when I work on clients they feel more open and are grateful for my help.  We have to inspire ourselves so we may inspire others to open themselves to their spirit.

There are so many spiritual truths in regards to the chakras, but I enjoy writing about my journey to these truths.  I had a hard time getting to this blog because I kept trying to define myself spiritually, but I realized I don’t need to.  You can find the fundamentals of the Chakras in many books, but how these fundamentals work for you are different from how they work for me.  We all have stories to share, and I choose to share mine here with you and inspire you to open up your chakras.  What are your stories?  You will find mine here and I hope they inspire you.

Namaste,

Ajna the Third Eye Chakra

Ajna, which means between the eye brows is also the home of your 3rd eye Chakra.  As we get higher up the Chakra ladder we begin to become open more to the spiritual and mystical side of the Chakras.  However, the Ajna is your portal to your reality, the truth and what lies just beyond what we can actually see.

In each of these Chakra blogs I wanted to say, “oh! this is one of my favorite Chakras, or this one…”, but I can honestly say it is this one.  The reason for this  is because when I started my journey into metaphysics, I bought my first deck of oracle cards.  In reality, it was the first Chakra I began to recognize and begin to open.  It’s a curious thing your Ajna, which I prefer the Sanskrit name over the western name of our sixth chakra; for the reason it helps you to see and trust your intuition as well as open your eyes to the seen and unseen world around you.  We have been brought up to block this gift of our Chakra because it is considered baaaadddd…  but is it bad when you trust your gut feelings? Is it bad when the person you were just thinking about walks into the door?  Is it really bad when you think of a song and it comes on?  I say Noooooooo!  I say embrace your intuition and your vibes and open that eye!

There are also other dynamics of the Ajna Chakra.  And that includes how we see ourselves.  How we look at ourselves using our 3rd eye.  Just like the throat chakra, what we see we create.  This is why the Ajna is connected with law of attraction and visualization.  How do you see yourself now or in the future?  I see myself walking down the red carpet at the Oscars, I have been nominated for best original screenplay and my dress is green and I look healthy, vibrant and I’m radiating happiness.

I have witnessed this scene play out in my head a million times.  I’ve talked to Gerrard Butler. I haven’t visualized an actual win, but that’s not what is important.  It’s that I got there. This is possible.  This is the power of your 3rd eye.  Visualization and speaking about what you want and actually seeing it play out like a movie in your head, this is power! Positive dream come true power!

Your Ajna Chakra allows you during meditation to look inside yourself and reflect.  Your reflections mirror the person you are or who you want to be, whats going on in your life and the people you surround yourself with.  When your Ajna is blocked you have trouble seeing what’s going on around you and you have no real concept of reality.  You’re definitely not seeing the whole picture.

To begin working with the Ajna, tools like Oracle cards are great because they help you tap into that intuition.  Meditation is also a fundamental tool in working with the Ajna.  Even now, take a few deep breaths…in and out…nice and slow….repeat this 3 x’s.  Picture an Indigo haze of blue energy surrounding you.  Visualize this energy moving up your body and resting at the area of your 3rd eye.  Let’s take a few more of those breaths.  There is a ring of Indigo energy circling your head just around your Ajna chakra.  With your eyes closed, allow only the 3rd eye to open.  See the eye at the center of your brow opening and scanning what it is you truly need to see?  What is the truth in your reality?

I’ve come to realize that these are not so much lessons on the Chakras, but information and antidotes.  I realized that I love to write and tell stories and give actual visualizations on how your chakras work in real life.

Dream Big My Faery Friends!!

In Love & Light

Vishuddha or Throat Chakra

“Your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you.  Impeccability of the word only creates beauty, love and heaven on earth.” ~Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

I am a great fan of Don Miguel.  He is one of the first self-help writers I ever read.  I think I read ‘The Four Agreements’ in like 2 days.  This is a book that I think should be taught to kids there freshman year, Jr. High School even.  The reason I bring up this book in regards to the Throat Chakra, is because our words are like magic.  And, one of ‘The Four Agreements’, is to be Impeccable with Your Word.  To be impeccable with Your Word is to speak your truth and with integrity.

If we are not speaking our truth, or if we are not living up to our integrity this will create blocks in our life.  Our Throat Chakra manifests our words and our beliefs that we tell ourselves.

CZ6XjclWEAApE0qThis is one of my favorite memes..our words are like spells, we can create our atmosphere.  We can make it ugly and unpleasant or we can make it beautiful…just like the quote above.  We create our energy.  Why on earth do we continue to sabotage our reality.  For example, I am my own worst critic.  I will look in the mirror and just be like “ugh!”  Thoughts rolling through my head about my body or this or that.  I can be really mean to myself sometimes, but then I realize, if I keep saying these things to myself, they become my reality.  Things won’t change until we change our communications with self and others.

Think before you talk and throw energy out into the world.  The Throat Chakra can create a lot of pain and a lot of happiness.  I used to be a waitress.  Almost all my life and people can be very unpleasant when they are hungry.  One evening I was waiting on a woman, she was very abrupt and was starting to cast her nasty on me.  I was perturbed, but I decided, to change the energy, I noticed she had taken off her jacket and she was wearing a red blouse, well this brought out her red lipstick (which I love red lipstick).  Anyhow, I looked at her and said, “Red is definitely your color.” I smiled and sat down her drink.  She gave me the biggest smile and poof! Like magic, she was a happy customer.

Words have power.  Vishuddha, the Sanskrit pronunciation of the Throat Chakra is about communication, creativity and self-expression.  It is associated with the color blue/turquoise.  If you are having issues with your throat chakra, I would suggest a turquoise pendant close to the throat/neck area.  Also, always be honest with your feelings.  If you keep things inside you, you are not being impeccable to your self and to those around you.

Humans are creative people and we always have to be creating and expressing ourselves to feel balanced.  If you are feeling blocked, you are probably not expressing yourself…let it flow! Set your words free in a healthy manner. If you are unbalanced, you probably talk to much and you just need to think before you talk.

Keep it honest people, with yourself and with others.  Transmit a higher vibration in the world.  I have a friend and she is always telling her son to be kind…so be kind!  Sprinkle that kindness around like glitter!!

Have a beautiful day, and sorry for the delayed post, this week is busy and fun!!

Peace & Love,

Anahata (Heart) Chakra

 

The funny thing about hearts,  this is an organ that keeps us alive.  The heart is also a symbol of love,  love is also something we need to survive.  Love in all its forms; self-love, unconditional love, and true love.  Love makes the world go ’round.  I love when I hug my kids.  When I pull them in, and we are chest to chest and I can feel their little love energy.  I would have to say this is one of the greatest treasures that can help open a blocked heart chakra.  A hug from a child or a pet or someone you love that words can’t express, because they will be there for you and you for them.  The Heart Chakra is all about the giving and receiving of love without conditions.

Beautiful green and pink hues reflect the energy of our Heart Chakra and of course it’s located at the chest and heart area.  When we reflect love and compassion towards other people we are opening our Chakra to the fullest.  We care for people and we feel love for all around us.  I personally love loving the Anahata Chakra, even saying it makes my skin tingle with joy.  Having love in your life is beyond amazing and the effects of pure love is truly inspiring.

Unfortunately not everyday can be a rainbow of love, we have our bad days, our dark times, when we feel all the love around us diminishing.  I can’t implore to you enough, having self-love is all the love you need to start with.  It’s like the starter pack for opening your heart chakra.  When you love yourself,  when you feel deeply for yourself as well as anyone else, you will have an open heart chakra, and it will attract more love to you.  Like attracts like.  If not, if you choose to continue on a downward spiral, or allow the heartache take you down, you will create that dis-ease I’m always talking about.

I’ve seen a lot of people who have been hurt all their life and have developed cancers and congestions in the area of their heart.  When you get down to the root of the problem, you find stories of heartache.  I know that we can’t turn off our feelings, but we can recognize and move forward from a heartache and it’s as simple as loving yourself enough to know the boundaries of what’s in your heart and what you are willing to do to keep it open and healthy.

In closing, today My husband and I are celebrating our anniversary and it’s Beltane and I’m completely filled to the brim with love!  So I send this loving energy to all of you!  As the sun lights up our life in the days to come I hope you enjoy each day of it!

In Love & Light,

Solar Plexus! The Power House

The Solar Plexus Chakra…this Chakra has to be one of my favorite to work with.  This is the Chakra where we carry our power center.  This Chakra lights us up like the sun lights up the sky.  So when we are full of joy, vibrating with positive energy or full of self-confidence, you are basking in the glow of your Solar Plexus.  This usually equates to great and positive success in your life.

In Sanskrit  the name for Solar Plexus is the Manipura Chakra,  which translates to Lustrous Gem.  It is located at the naval and the base of the sternum.  It serves the digestive area, solar plexus (hence the name) nerve plexus.  The Solar Plexus is represented by the color yellow and symbolized by the 10 petal lotus.

To me this is the happy chakra, when we are at our best…it’s in our stomach that we feel joy.  We have butterflies tingling with excitement, and when we are nervous or stressed we feel that in our stomach as well.  However, when we are not feeling good about ourselves or when we begin filling ourselves with self-doubt, then we begin to diminish that glow.  We let go of our aspirations, we tend to give up on our dreams.

One of my favorite meditations I would work on with a client for the Manipura Chakra, is to bring in a visualization of the Sun Flower.  I would ask them to take their deep breaths and begin to visualize that they were walking through a field of Sunflowers on a bright sunny day.  I asked them to pay attention to how they felt, the freedom, the solitude and to pay extra attention to the energy they felt in the area of their Solar Plexus.  If they could let go of their stress or worries in that field, they could do it anywhere.  They just had to close their eyes.

When we block our Solar Plexus, we tend to block our digestive system as well.   We have issues with our weight and definitely with our self-esteem.  I’ve recently been reading a book that I suggest for anyone with Solar Plexus issues, read ‘You Are A Bad Ass! How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life’ by Jen Sincero.   We often tend to self sabotage ourselves.  We are amazing creatures, and we can do great things, but we have to remind ourselves of that.  How many of you had the greatest idea only to begin to tell yourself,  that if you do that, people will laugh at you or judge you.  I guess, what I’m trying to say is to just  believe in yourself and what you are dreaming, and have the confidence to achieve it.  When you embrace that self-confidence, you are accepting who you are and you can live in your greatness.

It’s not always easy feeling balanced, we are human.  When you do have that feeling of confidence and joy, hold on to it and savor it, until it’s all you know.

Many Blessings My Faery Friends!
