Outstanding Orange Sacral Chakra MonDAY

OUTSTANDING ORANGE Sacral Chakra

Visualize your OUTSTANDING swirling bright orange sacral chakra two inches below your belly button. Breathe in orange to recharge this second chakra. Release negative emotions with each exhale as your orange energy gets brighter and brighter.

As you know, each of us has an energetic field that encases our body and internal organs. This energy, called bioenergy or chi, is responsible for life as it fulfills our need for subtle energy. The vortexes existing in this energetic field are called chakras. The chakras act as points of connection between our physical and non-physical (astral, extraphysical) bodies, enabling energies to flow from one of these vehicles of manifestation to the other. They are the means by which we absorb energy from and externalize energy to the environment, and exchange energy with others; therefore, they form the core system through which we sustain our energy levels, vitality and health.

When our OUTSTANDING swirling orange Sacral Chakra is open and balanced, we have an ability to take risks, we are creative, we are committed, are passionate, sexual and outgoing.  How’s that for awesomeness?!?
SOUNDS: Hum or whistle Musical Note D, or “Re” (ray) on the scale to vibrate with the Sacral Chakra’s energy.  Meditation Music: [1 Hour] Healing Tambura – Sacral Chakra Meditation Music | Taanpura & Harp Sounds Meditative Mind – Meditation Music

AROMAS: Jasmine EO, orange EO and Bergamot EO or  Essential Oil Spring Blend from March 20th

CRYSTALS: Citrine

MEDITATION:

Chant: “Vam”

Spend as long as possible in silent meditation

Close your eyes and take deep breath
Be aware of your body–do a scan of your body to find any area of tension. Breathe into them and release them
As you empty your mind of all other thoughts, feel the fluidity within your body and be reminded that you are a sensory being feeling, creating and enjoying the OUTSTANDING creative juiciness  of life.
Feel your body, while still on the outside, flowing like water on the inside full of potential.
This potential creates a nurturing sensation that cradles you. You are moved by its gentle rocking flow.
As you are saturated by the feeling of flowing potential imagine it flowing through the your body. This is the force behind your creativity and passion. It gives you a warm and fluid sensuality that is attractive and fills you with a vibrancy that resonates in all that you do
AFFIRMATION: I am a sensory being full of OUTSTANDING creative potential. “I embrace life with passion, joy and happiness. My senses are alive, well and connected.”

YOGA
Low Squat (Malasana)—The life lesson in the second chakra involves replacing guilt with forgiveness and acceptance.
This low squat pose focuses on the pelvis and allows you to be open and receptive physically, emotionally, and energetically in order to accept yourself fully.

—Squat with your feet as close together as possible. (Keep your heels on the floor if you can; otherwise, support them on a folded mat.)
—Separate your thighs slightly wider than your torso. Exhaling, lean your torso forward and fit it snugly between your thighs.
—Press your elbows against your inner knees, bringing your palms to together and resist the knees into the elbows. This will help lengthen your front torso.
—To go further, press your inner thighs against the sides of your torso. Reach your arms forward, then swing them out to the sides and notch your shins into your armpits. Press your finger tips to the floor, or reach around the outside of your ankles and clasp your back heels.
–Hold the position for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then inhale, straighten the knees, and stand.
Affirmation: I accept and forgive my OUTSTANDING self.

SEE YA LATER:

Spending time and cultivating your creativity is such an important gift, even if it’s just 15 minutes out of your day. Art is a sacred, meditative act. The marks you make are precious and the quiet time you set aside for yourself is profound. Creativity is not about making a masterpiece, but rather simply showing up at the craft table. Do what makes you smile–whether it’s pushing paint around, cutting some paper, gluing a collage, or watching an art tutorial video. I believe this will seduce your muse out of hibernation and will also send a clear message that you are OUTSTANDINGLY worth it. You are worth your valuable time.

“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”~~Osho

SPRING-Earth’s ENERGY radiating red

Let us Welcome SPRING, Ostara, the Return of Light and our Red Root Chakra which connects with Mother Earth spinning with a frequency of : 194.18 Hz.(Chakra Platonic) – 396 Hz.(Sofeggio) – 256 Hz (Carrier Wave) ;Musical Note: “C” ; Musical Scale/solfeggio Tone: “do” (doh)

Red Petal

Our roots to the Earth are vital to our well being and our connection to her seasons go deep. “The Vernal Equinox, today, March 20th, is one of only two such magical times of the year where night and day are precisely balanced; the wheel of the year is sliced in half. Only on the equinox does the equator, the point of solar termination on Earth, line up with the Sun, creating this vortex of energy, this point of balance.

When you celebrate the Equinox, you connect to all of our ancestors who have participated in ritual and ceremony on this occasion for millennia:  The native pre-Christian Germanic tribes of northern Europe worshipped a goddess of spring called Ostara. The Saxon tribes of old Britain called her Oestre. Her feast day was held on the full moon following the Vernal Equinox, much like the modern Easter. In Western tradition we see ‘Easter eggs,’ which date back to ancient times, as a symbol of fertility and rebirth. In Persia, eggs were painted and colored for 1,500 years as part of the spring celebration of No Ruz, a tradition of the Zoroastrian New Year on the Vernal Equinox.

All around the world, ancient and indigenous cultures have rituals, feasts, and celebrations of the Vernal Equinox. Ancient Roman followers of the goddess Cybele believed she had a consort who died and was resurrected on this day. The ancient Mayans have celebrated this event for ten centuries; as the sun sets on the day of the equinox, the western face of the Mayan pyramid El Castillo is fully bathed in sunlight, and is designed to work with the lengthening shadows, giving the appearance of a diamondback snake descending down the wall. ” (Athena)

This is a GREAT day to celebrate bringing the energy of light, hope, fertility, growth, and new beginnings.

SOUNDS:  Search for ‘Meditation Music for Root Chakra’ or Music for Spring Equinox or listen to these I found: Spring Equinox in “Circle of Seasons”;  Easter/Ostara/Spring Equinox by Mina La Voisin-a music video“The Righto feel Secure and Connect wit Earth”

CRYSTALS:   Set out all your red colored crystals

AROMAS :  immerse your sense of smell in a grounding ‘Spring Woodland Blend” of Essential Oils: 50 drops Balsam fir, 20 drops Vetiver, 10 drops Wintergreen and 10 drops Bergamot into a 5ml bottle.  Diffuse with your intentions to feel safe and in harmony with the Earth.

To apply behind ears, at base of spine, on feet bottoms, over heart, on wrists, base of neck, or temples,  mix the above with 1 oz of jojoba oil

If you are more into ‘Equinox Flower Garden’ fragrances than the woodland scene, try blending 30 drops lavender, 20 drops Jasmine, 20 drops Ylang Ylang, 20 drops hyssop, 6 drop Elemi, and 6 drops of Geranium to diffuse.  To apply to skin, mix with 1 oz jojoba oil.  I put my blends in a roll-on bottle and keep it handy all day.  I also code the top of the bottle with a sticker matching the color of the chakra it goes with so I don’t have to read them all  in the mornings.

Essential Oil blends sure beat the petrochemical commercial perfumes and air fresheners as over 60% of what comes in connect with our  skin, the largest organ on our body, gets absorbed into our blood stream! And unlike our insides where our kidneys and liver  act as  filters, our skin is all on its own with no one to protect it except diligently caring SELVES. 95% of the chemicals in most commercial fragrances are synthetic compounds derived from petroleum and natural gas, known as petrochemicals. On average, 80% of fragrance formulations are comprised of these chemicals and in some cases, 100% of a formula can be synthetic.  Skin absorbs these man-made chemicals in a few ways: by direct application, by contact with fragranced items, and by exposure to air containing fragrances and these can accumulate in our body organs.

SO why not use naturally occurring, invigorating Essential Oils of Nature?!

LIGHTS:  Soy (no petrochemical paraffin waxes) candles in Lavender, Spring green and yellow.

Begin by taking a moment to focus on the air around you. Inhale deeply, and see if you can smell the change in the seasons. Depending on where you live, the air may have an earthy aroma, or a rainy one, or even smell like green grass.

Sense the shift in energy as the Wheel of the Year has turned. Light the green candle, to symbolize the blossoming earth. As you light it, say:

The Wheel of the Year turns once more,
and the vernal equinox arrives.
Light and dark are equal,
and the soil begins to change.
The earth awakes from its slumber,
and new life springs forth once more.

Next, light the yellow candle, representing the sun. As you do so, say:

The sun radiates ever closer to us,
greeting the earth with its welcoming rays.
Light and dark are equal,
and the sky fills with light and warmth.
The sun warms the land beneath our feet,
and gives life to all in its path.

Finally, light the purple candle. This one represents the Divine in our lives — whether you call it a god or a goddess, whether you identify it by name or simply as a universal life force, this is the candle which stands for all the things we do not know, all those things we cannot understand, but that are the sacred in our daily lives. As you light this candle, focus on the Divine around and within you. Say:

Spring has come! For this, we are thankful!
The Divine is present all around,
in the cool fall of a rain storm,
in the tiny buds of a flower,
in the down of a newborn chick,
in the fertile fields waiting to be planted,
in the sky above us,
and in the earth below us.
We thank the universe* for all it has to offer us,
and are so blessed to be alive on this day.
Welcome, life! Welcome, light! Welcome, spring!

Take a moment and meditate on the three flames before you and what they symbolize. Consider your own place within these three things — the earth, the sun, and the Divine. How do you fit into the grand scheme of things? How do you find balance between light and dark in your own life?

YOGA:  How about a budding blooming, leafing TREE POSE?!   A SPRING Tree Pose–oh so RADIANT and alive and energetically brimming with the juices of life!    Visualize your favorite Spring tree as you firmly plant your entire left foot onto your mat  or barefoot on the ground and bring your right foot up into tree pose. Keep your hip points squarely ahead and your toes tucked in as you place your foot anywhere on your leg besides your knee. Be creative and make your tree pose your own. Place your right leg into half lotus or engage your core and reach your arms overhead, keeping the base of your neck soft and your elbows straight as you rotate the pinky side of your hands in to engage your triceps. Most importantly, feel supported and connected to the earth as you hold your tree pose for 5 to 8 breaths before switching sides—-

I celebrate Spring and new beginnings

SEE YA LATER: Since this first chakra is all about grounding,if possible take a barefoot walk in the grass or on a beach to enhance your connection to Mother Earth celebrating SPRING with every step.

Take your  gems, crystals, and stones outside to place them in a sunny place to charge in the light of the equinox. This is especially powerful at noon, when the sun is at its highest point in the sky, as well as the specific hour of equinox which varies by geographic location. In your time outside, take a moment to center yourself, grounding into the Earth, breathing in the renewing and balancing energy that abounds on this day. Feel the light, smell the scents that linger on the breeze. Maybe there is still a lingering winter chill; acknowledge this and thank it as it passes. Turn to the sun and soak up the renewing energy of its rays. REJOICE in new your new life and refreshed energies right this MOMENT!

Monday-2nd Chakra-Orange Belly

The Sacral Chakra resonates with Mondays–a good day to feel your creative flow.

There are thousands of channels
In our consciousness;
It’s up to us
To choose the channel—-Thich nhat hanh

————————

Beneath todays pragmatic, male oriented reality is a whole other world of power that can be reached only through imagination. Inspiration so often comes after a period of reflection, during which the seeds of creativity are planted. It is the feminine trait of contemplation that brings you to the altar of your imagination, the place where all things are possible, for what you imagine is, indeed real. If you can dream it, you can do it. Just ask the Wright brothers; ask any great artists, inventors, musicians, the builders of our world. Even the greatest scientific inventions begin with the dream; they begin with someone saying, “You know what, I have an idea that what we’ve come to think of as impossible is actually quite possible after all.” …..lynnandrews

Orange Sacral Chakra Monday

When I think of Orange sacral chakra Monday and then opening, embracing, liberating and releasing inhibitions, I always think Jasmine. It makes the process of opening up joyful rather than fearful. It promotes love, sensuality and sexuality, creativity, and living in the moment. Jasmine harmonizes and promotes wholeness. So fill you and your surroundings with the fragrance of Jasmine and feel the embracing flowing love of self.
