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 delves into healing with John Wessels, Master Astrologer

John Wessels, Master Astrologer, said the phrase “spiraling above our astrological chart”, in regards to healing and that got Megan and I beyond intrigued.  We discovered that John meant that we can heal what we carry from our ancestral line and therefore rise above it. We can first learn what that ancestral line is from our birth chart.  Big stuff!

One of my best friends had an experience with such an event.  Her daughter became dark and sullen when puberty hit and while that is not at all uncommon, she started exhibiting “self hurting” behaviors.  Not only that, but, she began to treat my friend in the same manner that my friends father treated her when she hit puberty ~ utter disgust and loathing.  It was suggested that perhaps there was something attached to the daughter and my friend called in a Shaman.  Indeed, there was an entity attached to the daughter from the mothers ancestral line and it was imbued with rage.  The Shaman began the process of clearing that aspect of the ancestry from my friend and her children.  The daughter did a 180° shift, no longer self hurting and responding to those around her with loathing. Powerful juju!!!

John also talked about different methods of healing that will help you clear that ancestral line.  Megan had a friend who experienced a clearing with her daughter with EMDR. The young girl was being mandated by the school system to receive drugs to moderate negative behaviors. The mother instead took her to a therapist who used homeopathy and EMDR to help the child clear the behaviors and it worked beautifully ~ no drugs needed!

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 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 goes with the flow with Samantha Jones

Here we are with Samantha Jones talking about allowing life to flow and the challenges that we encounter as we strive for that state of being. I believe that all things are connected and that every aspect of our lives is important as it carries us to the next level on our path to enlightenment. I make decisions at a time and place with the knowledge and information I have gathered thus far. I have not always used the wisdom that I have inherently, but, that again becomes part of the experience I am in at the moment. I know that every person I have encountered has in some way influenced how I move forward. Not all of those interactions have been pleasant. In fact, for a very long time, they were devastating. Yet they afforded me a wealth of information, not only about the people and situations around me, but, also about myself. Staying positive and Trusting come from the Knowing that we are in the hands of the Divine. That we can not make a bad choice. We are simply choosing and the bad/good labels come from without us. I think we can sit in the dark and experience that to give us a greater contrast to the Light. And why not? It certainly makes life interesting!! My earlier years were not easy, but, boy, they were interesting! My life is still interesting, but, I find more grounded ways to experience it. Most importantly is to know that everything that I have experienced has lead me to where I am today and I would not change one piece of it because then I might not be able to join in vibration with all of you!

GVK divinely conversing with Caroline Fairless part 2

It is always fun to be so involved in our conversation that we want to continue into the following week! Continuing on the path of how the Divine shows up, Caroline Fairless, brings us to learning from the Earth on how to “be” in a Divine way. We touched on how in the winter things seem to be “dead” but, in fact things are merely sleeping, resting, gestating and going within to become ready for the explosion of Spring.  Quiet time of winter gives us permission to be spend more time on the things we do not easily find time for in the warmer weather. And what does that have to do with the Divine? Well, in the past, I had trouble sitting in the stillness of the winter. I would often find myself feeling “blue” and restless. On one very, very quiet winter I was thinking that maybe my Higher Self and All That Is had forgotten about me. I moped around for a few months and then just gave in to the quiet. I meditated in the quiet, and at that time could not “hear” the Divine’s call. I continued my intense (always!!) conversations with All That Is. Still, I heard nothing. Sigh. Then on a whim, I bought some pussywillow branches. I threw them in water, also on a whim, because they are no longer living so they don’t need water. Then I put them in a corner. I walked by them for a month truly appreciating their soft beauty until one day I noticed what looked like white mold in the water around the branches. I thought ‘oh no! I’ve left them in the water too long’. So I pulled them out of the water and to my astonishment, saw that the white surrounding the branches were hundreds of roots!! A friend was visiting that day and she said to me, “Kristin, God is talking to you.” Yes, I said, I know. And I did. It was a powerful affirmation that All That Is, is ALWAYS with me, even if I think that I can not hear it. I ended up putting those pussywillow branches in a pot and she grew all summer, then in the fall, I placed her in my garden where she has grown into a young, strong beautiful tree. Any time I think that the Divine has forgotten about me, I go outside and look at that lovely tree and my heart fills with gratitude…

GVK gets Divine with Caroline Fairless ~ part 1

gvk-final-01Happy New Year Everyone!! We begin this 2014 with the oh so fabulous Caroline Fairless! I became so entranced with Caroline, that there are two parts to our conversation. We explore what is Divine Guidance to each of us. This topic is Profound and it is very different for everyone. Caroline brings to the forefront of this conversation that we, as humans, are not separate from our environment. We are not above, better than, or superior to our surroundings. We are a part of. Everything. What we do, what we say, and even what we feel reverberates out and effects not just our immediate surroundings, but, those vibrations echo out and can be felt around the whole Earth. When we are open to Divinity, the mundane or even the difficult becomes sacred. We find a different perspective. For me, that Divinity comes in most powerfully in Nature. I receive messages from the Earth and her creatures every day in many ways. When I opened up to the messages I began to find more peace in my life. I have studied what the Native Americans beliefs are regarding what Mother Earth has to say and find an utmost resonance there. After all, She is a living breathing entity. She is our life force and our sustenance. Do you have a story about Divine Guidance through nature? Share it with us!! To learn more about Caroline, click on the embedded links below…
