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 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 and Louisa Oakley Green with intuition the “call” of the day

Louisa’s experiences with her psychic husband and his family have given her a vast overview of the Divine and It’s role in our lives. I do not believe in coincidence. I believe that we are lovingly guided. I have had way too many examples of ‘wow, I was just thinking about her’ when a friend calls. Or, I am meant to get a train to go someplace, but decide at the last minute to take a bus, only to find out later that train was stuck in the tunnel for 3 hours. What made me take the bus? Intuition. I have had times when I will stop what I am doing in the house and go outside and there will be a beautiful rainbow. I will often get a feeling to get someone flowers or a card “for no reason” only to find out after I give them that my friend had been quietly going through a hard time or that it was their birthday. Or I will hug someone on a whim and be told that they really needed that because of a sorrow they are experiencing. Jeff, my husband, always seems to come home with flowers on the day I am struggling with an issue. What made him buy those flowers on that day? Intuition. We call it intuition, but, I think that it is guidance from the spirit realm. Louisa backs this theory up with all the interviews she has put together in her book about psychics that we are indeed guided from the other side.

GVK & Julie Genovese – shifting perspectives

I am so happy to have Julie Genovese, author of Nothing Short of Joy back on GVK!

Julie has a great phrase called ~ going to the “Spiritual Pub”. Meaning that we go to a place in the spirit realm to pick different things that would be interesting or growth experiences for the soul. For her it was dwarfism. She thought that would be a great adventure as she was looking at her choices up at the “pub”. Yet, when she got here, she forgot that she thought it would be great and got mired up in “being different” and then explored the feelings of that for a time. Of course, then comes the shift in perspective! Looking at a situation from our Higher Self experience can shed light on our choices and bring more peace.

I love the spiritual teachings of Pemma Chodron which help us see life in a different light and therefore give up the illusion of separate~ness. I feel that we have contracts with people to help us along our path to enlightenment here. Those people seem like the least likely to be our “helpers”, but, their interactions in our lives bring about the most profound awakenings. There have been so many times that I have wondered “why would I pick this!” so, believe me, it is not always easy to see the Higher view on these things!! Meditation and prayer help me tremendously. And I am blessed to have friends and a fabulous husband who help me stay balanced. They give me a safe place to bounce ideas and feeling off of. And it is always wonderful to meet someone like Julie and fold her into my circle…
