GVK gets sexy with the second chakra

chakra two 2Oh yes, sex is definitely connected to our second chakra! But there is so much more at play here~this chakra sits in the lower abdomen, the color associated with it is orange, and the element is water. When this chakra is balanced, we have grace, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment and the ability to accept change.  It connects us to others through feelings, desire, sensation and movement. Think of a flowing river moving with ease.

If this chakra is out of balance, we may experience issues with our skin, reproductive organs, kidneys, bladder, circulatory system, lymphatic system and adrenal system and, sexual performance will be effected in a negative manner.  

Having this chakra spinning with ease is the key to achieving our desires. And desire covers more than sex ~ it is literally our hopes and dreams.  My hopes and dreams always include the Earth as a whole.  Yes, I have desires for my own personal self, my children, my husband and friends, but, I dream as Big as possible for the World at large.  A peaceful and loving coexistence with our fellows, a clean and honored Earth, a clear and powerful connection with the Divine for all.  Those are my big dreams and I need my second chakra in perfect balance to help achieve those dreams…

We talked about ~ Ravi Varma Lakshmi ~ the Hindu Goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. 

Lots of “Verve” talk too ~  the spirit and enthusiasm animating artistic composition or performance : vivacity

GVK gets down with the 1st chakra

Today GVK focuses on the first chakra ~ the root chakra. This energy center of the body sits at the base of the spine and is associated with “grounding” onto the Earth and when it is open and spinning freely, a person will feel empowered with strength and vitality. If there the chakra has been closed or disrupted, a person may feel a great deal of fear and not trust the Divine Guidance all around them. The color associated with this chakra is red.

The chakra system of the body can be measured by electromagnetic patterns that they omit and while you may not be able to see them, and some people can most definitely see them, they can be measured. 

For me, grounding and being centered on the Earth used to be a deep challenge. I had a million ideas, profound amounts of energy and no way to focus it all. As I became more clear in my spiritual practice, I learned to ground my energy to the Earth which gave me a way to focus. Before then, I was an intense bolt of lightning, striking every which way. Still a bolt of lightening, but, I can direct it now. Now, when I center onto the Earth, I can feel her magnetic grid and her life force melding with mine. The power that our Mother Earth emanates moving through my body reminds me of my physical sustenance. I can call on that power through out my day when I must focus my thoughts and intentions on a project or desire or even while helping a friend through a challenging situation. 

Try it yourself! Create a grounding ritual and see how it effects your day. Use that ritual when you have to make a decision or start a new project and see how focused you become and how easily you can move toward your goal. Our Earth is our physical life force. She is more than something that we live on, she is a living entity that we want to be in communion with and the first chakra is our doorway…

GVK brings in Divine Love with Mariel Hemmingway on Valentines Day

 

Mariel Hemingway
shared her thoughts on Divinity, and Love with GVK and Megan and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Valentines Day!  Mariel has two new creative endeavors in the world ~ Running From Crazy  and Running With Nature and I relate to both!

For a good part of my life, I was running from the abuse and sorrow of my teen life. Through some synchronistic events (a friend giving me Out on a Limb by Shirley MacLaine for starters) I found myself understanding my past in a spiritual/psychic way. That lead to many epiphanies and an expanded awareness which ultimately lead to the Divine. That awareness shifted my perspective and taught me to stop running with pain and begin running with a spiritual life. Whew! 

And what does that have to do with Love? EVERYTHING!! The Divine is the omnipresent, omnipotent Love force of our Universe. That epiphany came to me as a remembering at my first LaHo~Chi session and brought me to a place of peace that I had not felt on this Earth before.

So, on this Valentines Day, celebrate Love. Whether it is with a life partner, a friend, a parent, a child, an animal, with Mother Earth herself or a Higher Power of your understanding. Celebrate because the Divine Loves you for who you are. And who you are is someone that No One else can be on this Earth, ever. 

Mariel and her life partner, Bobby, celebrate with Mother Earth every day with mindful practices around food, exercise, each other and ultimately with the world. Mariel shared a poem of Love by Bobby at the end of our conversation and it is beautiful, so enjoy!

GVK spreads the Light with Father Tim

Sharing the Light. I did not understand what that meant 20 years ago. I understood about feeling good or feeling bad, but, it never occured to me that how I went about my life actually vibrated out and effected the outcome of that day. And how it effected the outcome of others days.  What I have come to understand about spreading energy is that what kind of energy I send out depends on how consciously I am moving through my day. When I first came upon this concept, I reacted with superiority ~ Conscious? Of course I am conscious! ~ I am awake and breathing and talking! But, truly, that is simply existing. I had no idea that my every thought created the whole universe that surrounded me. That universe included the negative and disparaging thoughts implanted by my blood family and other outside people, that I kept alive and well in my head. And as I let those thoughts run on with abandon, I was creating a universe that mirrored and supported those thoughts. And all the time thinking that the problem was with the world outside of me. As I continued on my spiritual seeking path, I began to experience Lightness of Being and began to truly see the cause and effect of my thinking. I began to experience the beauty of sharing my Light as opposed to throwing around my Darkness. I became awakened to the Light all around me and longed to have that Light be the more powerful aspect of my day.

One of my favorite songs is “Bad” by U2 ~ it sums up to me what it feels to be Conscious. The word surrender moves through the song like a heartbeat as Bono sings:

If I could through myself 
Set your spirit free 
I’d lead your heart away 
See you break, break away 
Into the light 
And to the day 

I’m wide awake 
I’m wide awake 
Wide awake 
I’m not sleeping 
Oh, no, no, no 

For me, sharing Light means kindness to others around me. The “others” could be people/birds/squirrels or Mother Earth. It also means kindness to myself. The rewards of spreading Light far out way the momentary gratification of making others wrong and blame. Hear this, my friends ~ Consciousness takes work. But, soon, like anything we strive for, work becomes play and habit becomes instinct. Are you ready to join me, because I AM wide awake…
