The Creative Chakra in Your Belly

 

In the previous blog, I explained where the Root Chakra gets it name and how to GROUND yourself fully into the Heart of Mother Earth so that her Divine Love will support your Ascension Process and your life as a Master of Manifestation.

Now I am going to tell you about the Second Chakra and how connecting it to your Heart Center will change your understanding of yourself as the Divine Creator.

The Creativity Chakra

Creativity ChakraLocated just below your navel is the chakra often called the Sexual Chakra or the Belly Chakra.  It is associated with procreation, sexuality, and the emotional body.

Emotions are like water.  If you mix colored dyes indiscriminately into a bowl of water, evenually the color you will end up with is muddy brown.

Similarly, if your emotions are swirling and whirling around, without clarity and without focus, all jumbled together, and if you feel that you are a victim to your emotions – that you can’t understand them or control them, then your second chakra needs attention.

Lower vibrational emotions, such as anger, rage, resentment, hate, shame, embarassment, anxiety, loneliness, lust, jealousy, and so on, are all rooted in fear and are all distractions from our spiritual life path. 

Furthermore, they can not be controlled using energies from the same level of frquency as the one from which these emotions originate. 

To cleanse and balance the Second Chakra, there are two approaches.  One is to bring the Heart Qualities, including Divine Love, down into this chakra while also bringing up to the Chakra the Divine Love of Mother Earth. 

The other is to bring the limiting emotions directly to the Heart Center while being supported by the Divine Love of Mother Earth.  Both methods are required to create balance and harmony in our Emotional Body.

Unlimited Creativity For Limitless Creators

The Second Chakra is the Creativity Chakra.  It is where we can find the creative energies that empower us to live as Divine Manifestors on the physical plane.

Remember, the Law of Attraction says that what you focus on expands.  If you focus with fear, you will get fearful creations.  If you focus with Love, your creations will be filled with Love.

What do you want in your world?  Fear or Love?  It’s your choice, because you are the one creating it.  If you want all your creations to be expressions of Divine Love, then your Heart Center and your Creativity Center must be working together in harmony and balance.

When your Creativity Chakra is cleansed and balanced and then fully integarted with your Heart Center, you will have access to tremendous power to create your reality in a fully conscious, Love-filled way.

Namaste,

Before You Can Ascend, You Must Descend All The Way

The Root Chakra

 

The focus today seems to be on the Heart Center or Chakra of our body.  Everyone, including me, has been offering courses and meditations on how to live from your Heart.

The other day, I was having a conversation with my I Am Presence, and I was given some vitally important information that, at the time, seemed so obvious that I wondered how I could have overlooked it.  Of course, anything is obvious, once you know it.  Before you know it, it’s a complete mystery.  So the joke is truly on me!!

This is the first in a series of blogs to explain how to link your Heart Center with the lower 3 chakras and why this is important.

The ROOT Chakra

Root ChakraHave you ever wondered why the Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine, is actually called the “Root” Chakra?

When I first heard this name, I just assumed it was called this because it was the lowest of the primary (the biggest) chakras in the human body.  This is not incorrect, but nearly so.

Humans actually have a channel that runs from the Crown Chakra on the top of the head to the Root Chakra at the base of the spine.  This channel should be (when clear and clean and open) as wide as your head.  There is also a channel that runs from the Crown Chakra all the way to Godhead.

And . . . there is a channel that runs from your Root Chakra down to the Earth Star chakra at the bottom of your auric field.  The Earth Star is located 6-8 inches below your feet, so if you are standing up, it is inside the Earth.

Usuualy, when you are told to ground yourself, you are told to open the secondary chakras in the arches of your feet and ground through them.  Ah, Ha!!  Here’s the key.  To be FULLY GROUNDED you, Divine One in Human Form, are meant to ground your energy like a TRIPOD – down through your legs, yes — but also down through the Root Channel from the Root Chakra to your Earth Star.

Look how stable a kangaroo is standing on 2 feet and 1 tail.  Think how much more stable you would be if you were standing on 2 feet and an additional column of energy.

The Root Chakra is the start of your energy root that is meant to ground you more fully.  When you ground as a tripod, you can be more fully connected to the Earth.

Why is this important?  Because the Earth is our Spiritual and Physical Mother.  All the “substances” in our physical body come from the Earth.   Without the assistance and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE of our EARTH MOTHER, we can not be here on the Earth Plane.

If you are intent on creating your reality in a new way, you need the assistance of Mother Earth and of the elemental beings whose job it is to transform your thoughtform (idea) into a physical state.

The Matrix of Reality is Divine Love

The underlying energy matrix of all reality is constructed from Divine Love or Love Without Conditions.  Therefore, if you intend to CONSCIOUSLY CREATE, the first step is grounding into the Earth. 

When you bring your I Am Presence fully down into your Root Chakra and then down the Root Channel and your legs into the Earth Star Chakra and then, with her permission, into the Heart of Mother Earth, you are consciously creating the linkage necessary to empower all of your Divine Creations.

Earth Mother then sends her Divine Love expression (energy) up through your feet and root channel to support your process.  You are fully connected and grounded and receiving Divine Love fully from your Mother.

Talk about being (and feeling) fully supported!!!

Overcoming Fear

Since the Root Chakra is associated with survival and trust issues, please consider that when you are fully Rooted, fully Grounded, and fully open to receive the Divine Love of your Earth Mother, then you are in a stronger, more powerful place from which to eliminate fear.

LOVE IS THE ANSWER TO FEAR. 

So step #1 to eliminating fear is GROUNDING the Divine Love that you have in your Heart Center and the Divine Consciousness of your I AM Presence through your ROOT CHANNEL and both your feet.

Then to begin to eliminate fear from your life, wrap your fear in Unconditional Love, limitless Love, Infinite Love, and watch your fear dissolve.

Invite your “ego” or your inner child (the little boy or girl inside you who is afraid of taking risks, having adventures, and expanding into higher consciousenss) to come into your arms.  Wrap that child up in Divine Love.  Observe what happens.

Namaste,
Nedda

 

Courage and the Cowardly Lion

The Wizard of Oz Truly Was a Fraud

 

In “The Wizard of Oz” the Lion character is filled with fear and has accepted the label of “coward.”  He sets off down the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy and the others to find his courage.

Of course, he’s looking for Courage in the wrong place – outside of himself.  Courage resides within us and is available in unlimited quantities if you seek it within.  No amount of medals, as given by the Wizard of Oz to the lion, can possibly provide us with Courage.

In his 1994 Inaugural Speech, Nelson Mandela spoke about fear and courage in these now-famous words:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our Light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
“Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you “not” to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking  so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own Light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,  our presence automatically liberates others.

So I en-courage you to be the Light.  Be the change you want to see.  Go deep inside and connect with the Courage that lives in your own Heart.  The Courage is who you really are!

If you are choosing to have more Courage in your life, begin by answering these questions. 

  1. If I had tremendous courage, what changes would I make in my life?
  2. Would the changes I listed help me fulfill my soul’s purpose for this lifetime?
  3. Would the changes I listed have effects for the next 50 years and beyond?
  4. If not, what is holding me back from making a change that would have that effect?
  5. What are 3 situations in which I have already acted courageously.
  6. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the MOST courage, how much more courage would it take than I have demonstrated in the past to achieve the changes my Soul is asking me to make?
  7. Could I find or create this much more courage if I knew how important it is to my life purpose?  (To answer this, you don’t need to know how you might build the courage just yet.  You just need to know that it is possible to do so!)
  8. What would make it possible for me to find or create this much Courage inside myself?
  9. Who are some of the people who inspire me by their expressions of Courage?
  10. What is the first step I could take today to would help me connect with more of my inner Courage?

If this process has intrigued you or given you some insights, please comment on this blog.

If you would like some assistance in connecting withyour own inner Courage, please email me at neddaw@sbcglobal.net or call me at 860-651-5771.

Forgiveness Synchronicity

Forgive Everything.  What Have You Got to Lose?

 

I’ve been teaching the Heart Centered Living program for the last 4 weeks, and suddenly it seems really obvious that there is a lot of room for expanding the role of Forgiveness in my life.  Mostly, I am forgiving myself as the creator of all that I experience.  After all, what I experience is just a reflection of my inner world, so naturally, if there is something outside myself that I don’t particularly like, I forgive myself for it.

But it’s really much more subtle than this.

When I remember that whatever I experience is reflecting my inner “stuff” I start taking a good look at the inner stuff.

I’ve been reading “Forgive for Good,” by Dr. Fred Luskin.  Now, Dr. Luskin does not take a very spiritual approach to Forgiveness, as far as I can tell (I’m more than half-way through his book).   He doesn’t really get into the idea that whatever I experience reflects my inner world.  Still, I must say he knows quite a bit about Forgiveness.

Dr. Luskin talks about how we each create a “story” that we tell ourselves over and over again about our life.  If something happens that annoys us or makes us angry or pushes any of our buttons, we store up our emotions as a grievance and we tell ourselves a story about it. 

We may have a story that goes back to our childhood, or we may have a story that began yesterday when we discovered that we weren’t going to the raise or promotion we thought was our due.

Sometimes we tell the story to ourselves (inside our own head) and sometimes we tell the story to ourselves (to the people outside our physical bodies).  Dr. Luskin says that to truly forgive we have to change the story we are telling.

OLD STORY

This is how we keep ourselves stuck in the past, stuck in pain and limitation.  We may have been mistreated, or maybe we were abused, or maybe abandoned or just disappointed.  Whatever the story, you probably know yours very well.  You have it memorized.  You can play it on your mental DVD machine whenever you like.

Want to know more about your story?  Write it down.  Just the simple act of writing down your story may be very revealing.  Is it a long story?  Is it about you or about what others have done (or not done) to/for you?  Do you blame others for what happened, or are you taking full responsibility for whatever happened?

NEW STORY

This is the one to write to free us from our stuck places.   Make yourself the hero (or heroine) – you know – the one who “saves the day” – who makes it all come out “right.”   

Basically, if you c ould change your life story, how would you write it?

JUST FOR NOW. . .

… consider identifying your story.  Notice what you tell yourself about yourself and your life.  What are your limiting beliefs about yourself?  How does your story reinforce those beliefs?  What would you have to change in your personal story to change those beliefs? 

Or – maybe it’s the other way around??  Maybe if you changed your limiting beliefs, your story would start to change?

So what do you have to lose?  The pain you’ve been holding onto.  The feeling of powerlessness to have joy and fulfillment in your life.  The blame you’ve been passing onto other imaginary others who seem to exist outside of you.

So what do you have to gain?  A feeling of peacefulness and satisfaction.  A send of your own power to take charge of your life.   A fun story to tell yourself about yourself!

Namaste,
Nedda

Heart Centered Living – Challenge #1

OTHER PEOPLE

 

When I was growing up, I had two younger sisters.  Like all families with more than 1 child, establishing blame was a central part of life.  “Who started the fight?” my mother always wanted to know.  “Who left the refrigerator door open?”   “Who was supposed to set the table?”  The search for assigning blame (responsiblity) went on and on.

As we are growing up, we are  taught that the way to solve a problem is to figure out who is to blame for it.  I, personally, have not found this to be a very productive way to achieve solutions.  When we seek to establish blame, what we are often seeking is to assign responsibility and then follow that with punishment, shaming the person(s), and making ourselves feel better because we don’t have to take responsibility for participating in whatever happened.

Our entire culture is set up this way – the law, the schools, the family interactions.

What if this approach is entirely misguided, misleading, and unproductive?  What if we need to throw away this paradym and establish a new one?  What would you put in it’s place?

 

A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Spirituality and modern science are telling us the same thing:  everything that we think is outside of our physical bodies actually is a reflection of our inner world – of our belief systems, thoughts, expectations, and emotions.

If this is true, and there is more and more evidence that this is exactly how things actually work, then it is impossible for us to witness any event without being a creator/participant in that event.  It is impossible to interact with others without affecting the outcome of the interaction as well as the qualitative flavor, style, and content of the interaction.

For example, if the people around you are “negative,” then you are being shown a reflection of some negativity that is within you.  If the people around you are joyful, they are reflecting your inner joy.

The bottom line is, the only person on this planet that you can change is YOURSELF.  Therefore, if you have decided that those around you need to change, you had best look inside yourself and make the changes you want to see in them.  Unless and until you make those changes, you will experience the same reflection over and over again.

 

CHANGE YOURSELF TO CHANGE THE REFLECTION

This DOES NOT mean that you have to keep yourself in a space with people who are constantly putting you down, treating you badly, abusing you, or anything of the kind. 

This DOES mean that, if you want to stop patterns of mistreatment that you are receiving, you have to make a commitment to yourself to treat yourself better.  That may include changing where you live, your job, and, MOST IMPORTANT of all, beginning a process of changing how you feel about yourself and what you believe about yourself and the world you see reflected outside of you.

To move into Heart Centered Living means:

 I am willing to take responsibility for my participation
in creating my life and everything in it. 

If you are unhappy with how you look in a mirror, you can throw out the mirror and get a new one, but guess what?  The reflection will be the same.  Only when you change yourself will you see a new reflection.

Namaste,
Nedda
