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 gets charged up with Zach Lichtmann, author of Dynamo

Zach Lichtmann brought a dynamic energy to GVK so it is no surprise that his first novel is called Dynamo. And he brings that dynamic force to living his dream.  Megan and I were totally inspired talking with Zach about how he found his way to becoming a published writer, and a damn good one at that.

I believe that living your dream and your passion is the key to a fulfilling, happy and productive life.  Once I found my passion for telling stories through acting I went at with my full being.  My parents were concerned.  How would I make a living? What if it never worked?  What kind of a job is acting?  They were not happy and wanted me to have a “backup” in case this thing didn’t work out. 

My dreams of “telling a story” through acting never waivered, but, it did go through a metamorphosis.  Having children shifted my passion for the life of a struggling actress.  Long hours and late nights with little pay meant not being with my children and that was not something that felt good in my heart.  I had been a struggling actress for close to 20 years.  I felt that the Universe was telling me something when I was asked to come to a 10 hour rehearsal for a 5 minute role of the sleeping nurse on stage.  That meant 12 hours away from my new born baby.  So, I stepped away from it all.  Had I been super successful, it may have played out differently.  But, I trust the Universe, even if it is showing me something that I don’t think I want. 

Soon after walking away, a play began to write itself in my head.  With the encouragement of my beautiful husband, Jeff, I wrote it down and invited 50 friends/family members to bear witness to my new direction in life.  I told them all before I began that I really didn’t know if this was going to be good and that I would let their reactions be my guide.  I received a standing ovation with not a dry eye in the house.  I had my answer.

And so began a new direction of the same passion.  GVK is yet another path of that same passion.  Who knows where it all leads, but, I will keep living my dream Knowing that All That Is rejoices when a soul shares it’s Light in it’s own unique way…

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 follows a serendipitous path to Buddha with Roy Havrilack

The Light was blazing during our conversation with Roy Havrilack about serendipity!  Roy is an actor and cofounder of Skytown Entertainment, which produced of the short film ~ What FutureHe had been a spiritual seeker for years before he found his way to the practice of Buddhism.  And he found it through the delightful path of serendipity.

Don’t you love when something just drops in your lap out of seemingly nowhere?  In reality, you had sent out signals to have that thing “happen” into your life.  It is the cause and effect of our thought process.  Yet, we must be open to the signals that move us mysteriously to that happenstance wondrous event.

When we move through our life open to the magic that the universe creates for us, serendipity blazes the way.  Somehow, I always followed those inner nudgings.  I don’t even know how I did it in my early years because I was riddled with fear and anger.  But, somehow a voice, a hunch, or an obscure idea, would move me in some direction I hadn’t even considered and then pieces of a puzzle would fall into place. I would get a job I desperately needed or find an apartment on my last day of looking, or meet a soul friend.  I would look back and think ‘how did that happen?’  Never really understanding that I had sent out signals to put things in place and all I had to do was be open to the Divine Guidance.  Be Open.

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 pollinates Light and Love with Noelle Meade~Izzi

Noelle Izzi’s quest is to bring awareness to her beautifully coined expression ~”spiritual pollination“.  Megan and I were excited by the term and it’s implication for raising the vibration of our life experiences and more profoundly, our Earth.  Spiritual pollination  is about what energy we put out into the world. By putting positive energy, thought and action out,  we create a world of Divine balance ~ the same kind of balance that we see, and experience in Nature. 

Noelle had a beautiful experience with a hummingbird that changed her perspective and turned her world around.  The hummingbird was brought in by the Divine to pollinate a message of Joy.  The Native Americans believe that the hummingbird feathers open the heart.  Without an open heart, we can not experience the beauty and bliss of life.  Hummingbird is a bird of true Joy.  This bird is the only one who can fly up, down and in each direction, It can also seem as though it is literally hanging still in the air. Hummingbird, though teeny tiny, is a powerful pollinator.  Because of it’s free spirit, it can not live in captivity.

We talked briefly about Dr. Masaru Emoto ~ the world renown scientist, who proved that words, written or spoken, will change how water crystals form.  Beautiful music and words spoken to water or even written on a glass of water creates beautiful crystal formations in the water that can be witnessed after it isfrozen.  Negative words spoken into or taped onto the glass of water created deformed and imbalanced crystals.  

Follow the link below to get more information and be astounded by what vibrations a word will create in water.  Then take that a step further to understand the impact that you have every day with EVERY word you speak and think…

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…
