GVK connects the chakras to soul vows

highSoul-Vows-194x300It is so easy to feel the essence of the Divine when talking with Janet Conner ~ author of Writing Down Your Soul, The Lotus and The Lily, & Soul Vows. She walks her talk or lives what she writes about. And now she is focusing on vows. Soul Vows to be exact.

Janet is offering a 20% discount for her new Soul Vows tele-course. It begins on April 14th at 8pm est. Listen to the podcast for the code word to receive your discount. I look forward to connecting with you there!

What exactly is a vow? Well, I looked it up ~ it means an oath, a pledge, a promise, a bond, a commitment, a covenant. What could be more powerful than a covenant with oneself? I’m not just talking about some words but a covenant . Something sacred, something holy, something that reflects the Divine within ourselves. Lest we forget, and sometimes it sure seems like we have, Janet is here to remind us of our holiness.

We have spent eons cloaked in the darkness. And because of that, we be~lie~ve that we are unholy, unclean, unworthy. Nothing could be further from the Truth. We are sparks of Divinity meant to shine our unique Light onto the world in a positive way. But, we can not shine what we do not know. And that is where Soul Vows come in. It is a tool to accessing the Divine within the self and thus knowing the Higher Self. When you connect that with the chakras, then you have a powerful tool that raises the veil, unlocks the door and initiates your freedom from the dark. You are free from the lie that you are unworthy. It shines the Truth all around you. It shows you your inner Self, your holy Worth, your Divinity. Are you ready? Me too…

GVK rides up the chakra river with Janet Conner

I was so blown away by the information that Janet Conner shared regarding chakras that I was speechless for most of this podcast! I was most moved by her experience with Swan and the 6th chakra.

Janet is the author of The Lotus and the Lily and Writing Down Your Soul.

In Native American lore, Swan, as a duckling, enters the Void and surrenders to Great Spirit’s vision. She trusts what she is shown and is thus transformed into a graceful elegant white bird.

When I entered my teen years I couldn’t have felt more like an ugly duckling if had tried. It wasn’t about what I looked like on the outside however, it was about how I felt on the inside. My parents thought I was weird and couldn’t find a common ground to communicate with me. Teachers found me frustrating. And there were factions of the student population that simply wanted me dead. I believe that was the first time that I entered the Void. I had to Know who I was at a time when knowing who you are is the biggest struggle of your life.

I did not experience the Void as gracefully as Swan did my first time in. I didn’t want to be different. I didn’t want to have strange dreams with spirits talking to me. I didn’t want to know what people were feeling before they did. I didn’t want to grieve the Earths torture. I didn’t want to have Big emotions and Big feelings. I just wanted to be normal. Sigh. Normal, I am not ~ and today I celebrate that. But, the remembering of who I Am took time, healing and love.

I have been shown many things during my excursions in the Void. But the thing that I take to my heart and have instituted into my life is to Trust that I matter. Trust that I am an integral part of this wonderful, heartbreaking, exciting, maddening and empowering adventure called Life. And that all the crazy, painful, strange, exciting experiences I have will be transmuted into healing through my storytelling. when I share my experiences through storytelling, I lead people to a healing. I am here to bridge the gap between human and spirit ~to lead people to remembering their Divinity…

Your connection to the Divine will deepen, your psychic abilities will expand and your sense of well being will broaden. Keep this podcast in your tool kit for balancing and shifting the energy in your life to a more positive and Knowing place.

 

Let’s recap ~
1st chakra color: red            element: earth ~     to have
2nd chakra color:orange     element: water ~    to feel
3rd chakra color: yellow     element: fire ~         to act

When we are balanced, we can receive, with clarity, the Divine messages that surround us. Accessing our Divine Selves brings us into a place of Knowing and Knowing pushes out the fear. I hear so many conversations centered in fear and negativity ~ global warming, poverty, animal abuse, Earth abuse. Sigh. Believe me, I get it! I live on this Earth and I am well aware of the challenges we are facing as a human race. But, lets be honest, if I focus on that, then I seriously would not even get out of bed in the morning. I must remain focused on my Divine Self to institute positive change.

My kids will tell you that my favorite saying, and I Live by this, is ~ if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Period. It is truly that simple. Stay balanced and create positive change. Pick up the garbage you see on the ground, plant a tree, stop using pesticides on your lawn and garden, volunteer in your town, smile at people, learn something about a different culture (especially one that scares you). How to effect positive change is endless. Balance, tap in and vibrate it out to be the beacon of Light you came here to be…

GVK opens to the Divine with the 7th chakra

The seventh chakra is your connection to the Divine.  This chakra is a deep violet leading into white. It’s element is Thought.  But, funnily enough, you can’t think this chakra into opening.  The way into this magical and Divine world is by Being. This chakra, being the door to the Divine, does not become imbalanced.  It will either be open, partially open or closed.

When I was a teen and into my early 20’s, I did not believe in anything like a Higher Power.  Life seemed to kick me over and over and if there were such things as Angels and Guides, I certainly did not think that they were with me.  I thought that if there were such things, they were for the super religious people.  I felt very much on my own in terms of how to get through life.  My crown chakra was however not closed. I recieved information from the Divine all the time, but, did not realize what it was. But due to the fear that I was living in, my crown chakra was only partially open.

However, when I moved from my parents home, I began to experience things that could not be explained away. Premonitory dreams, people talking very clearly to me in my dreams, hunches that were always right and a very loud clear voice of guidance.  I then began to explore the psychic world which lead me on a spiritual journey. That journey lead to the healing and opening of my heart, which in turn,  fully opened my crown chakra.

As the heart opens, so does our awareness of the Divine. The Divine is Always with us. My experience is that when I reach out to the Divine, even just a tiny bit, Divinity runs to me full force with more love than I can possibly fathom…

GVK looks into the future with the 6th chakra

The sixth chakra is a gateway into the future.  The color is a deep indigo blue and the element is light.  This chakra sits in the center of the brow, creating a triangle with the eyes. The sound associated with it is a soft o ~ ooooo. When spinning freely, this chakra opens awareness on a multidimensional level, fully immersing us in the bigger picture vision of life as a Soul.  It is also the gateway to Dreams.

Since I can remember, I have had vivid and profound dreams.  A reoccurring dream of mine that followed me into my college years was a cacophony of voices of all different pitches calling my name over and over and over.  I found it absolutely terrifying as a child, but, came to understand much later that the voices were souls reaching out to me.  I believe that they were reaching out in support, because the “dream” always came through when I was in deep despair and stress. 

The sixth chakra opens us to the future and then to possibility.  If we are sitting in a place of hopelessness, our sixth chakra is out of balance.  I recently read an article about a hard core, long time environmental activist, Paul Kingsnorth, giving up and falling into despair.  Sigh.  I found myself falling with him as I read the article, but, then said “WAIT!  I need a rebalancing of my third eye.”  Because clear vision helps us see beyond what the material world presents, it helps us see things in a Divine light.

Now, on my spiritual journey, I can almost always to see beyond what is presented to me in the physical world.  Being able to open to that kind of Vision helps me continue to do my part in making this world a more conscious and balanced place.  To keep my focus on what I Am doing, not on what I can’t do.  Some time ago, I spoke with an old colleague of mine.  His daughter was turning 10 and mine was just born.  I was remarking how wonderful it was to be a child today because of the awareness around parenting that our parents did not possess.  He freaked out at me exclaiming “Are you kidding?! It’s a horrible time to bring kids into the world. Everything is a mess, we are going to run out of water and the only thing our kids will inherit is pollution!”  Who do you think needed a 6th chakra balancing…

GVK speaks loud and clear with the 5th chakra

chakra fiveThe fifth chakra ~ The color is sky blue, the element is air ~ and it is my favorite!  And not only because I communicate for a living.  Leading others by spreading a high vibration with my words and thoughts, whether it be with performing or in my home environment is part of my souls purpose here on Earth.  

It took me a long time to find my way to a Soul Purpose that felt good to live in. And communicating a Higher Truth feels comfortable for me.  That communication is as much about what I send out as what I send in to myself. My teen years where hellish and I received messages on a regular basis of how I wasn’t good enough.  Like anything that is played over and over again, a groove became imprinted in my psyche that put me in a loop of that feeling.  Moving myself out seemed a task that couldn’t be accomplished and then my spiritual journey went into full force and I found my way.

And I believe that because I found my way, it was my Soul Purpose to help others find theirs.  I once told my Mom that the things that have happened to me, have happened for a reason ~ and that reason was to lead others out of the darkness.

The fifth chakra leads us out of the darkness with voice, sound, intention and purpose.  How are you putting forth your energy?  Do you give yourself loving thoughts and messages?  Remember, what you put into yourself is what you echo out into the world.  The more that we give ourselves love and tolerance, justice and peace, the more that vibration will spread outward and before you know it, we will be living As Above, So Below…

GVK lets the heart do the talking

chakra fourAhhhh, the heart. Can’t you feel it? The rhythmic, pulsing, there, in the center of your being. It is calling you, beckoning you, and encouraging you to lead with your heart. Are you ready to heed the call of Love?

Ahhhh is the sound that we tone this magnificent muscle with and it’s element is Air. Although pink is the universal color of Love, the heart chakra glows a brilliant emerald green. The same green associated with Archangel Raphael ~ the Archangel in charge of healing and health. Raphael means “God heals” or “He who heals” in Hebrew. Which makes sense because in order to put forth and accept love, our own hearts must be healed.

This chakra sits in the center of our being and connects the lower & upper chakras. If this chakra is imbalanced, the other 6 chakras will not have a way to connect to each other fully.

We often associate love with romance, but, the heart chakra love is a Divine one.  And sure, we all love romance and the love of partnering, but, how can we love another without first loving ourselves? When I began my spiritual quest in earnest, I began to heal my heart, my emotions and my body from deep brutality. During that time, it was important for me to distance myself from my family of origin to come to the truth about who I really was, not who I was defined by them. Setting up this boundary was a form of self love, something I had never done before. It freed me to discover my gifts and talents and to own my personal power. It freed me to truly learn, experience, and Know Love…

GVK gets centered with the third chakra

The third chakra is our power center.  The color is yellow and the element is fire.  This chakra gets you moving!  It is the chakra that is oriented to self definition.

It is from our center that we reverberate out who we think we are. When the 3rd chakra is spinning easily then we feel good about who we are and what we contribute to the world.  However, if your self talk is crappy ~ I always say something stupid, I couldn’t be any fatter, no one likes the bald guy dude, I’m such a space cadet ~ then your third chakra needs balancing. And, make no mistakes, even though your self talk is in your head, you will radiate that energy out and create a world that answers to that talk.

Who we are to ourselves is far more important than how the world out there defines us.  Knowing that we are Divine and that we bring something special to this Earth simply by being our true selves takes hold in the third chakra. It is our inner most “private” thoughts that determine what we think of ourselves.  No person, job, dollar amount or profession can define who you are.

And bigger than that is the FACT that the Divine knows who you are and loves you immensely for having the courage to incarnate in physical form so that the Divine can be known through you and by you. Try telling yourself that private thought every day and see your world become magical one!

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…
