Revolving Heart Chakra Negativity

Heart Chakra operates on the physical as well as the emotional and energetic planes.  The Positive Archetype is The Lover—a person of generosity, openness, compassion, and good will.   The Negative Archetype is The Actor/Actress—a person whose love is conditional.  Their relationships suffer because they have not developed a capacity to hold love in their hearts.

 Location:  Middle of chest.

Function:  It functions both physically and emotionally to keep the life force alive.  The heart organ carries the life blood through the body and the Heart Chakra moves love through our lives.

Physical Body Energy:  It is essential to our physical supply of energy and vitality through the Thymus Gland, known for building our immunity from pain and disease.

Emotional Body Energy:  The Heart Chakra is the center of love.  It opens us to experience love for ourselves and others.  It lets us feel compassion, joy, and peace.

Mental Body Energy:  Holds ideas and attitudes of happiness, joy, delight, and knowing what makes our heart sing.  The more we love ourselves and accept the wounds of human fragility, the more our love for others grow.

The Solar Plexus is the center of personal identity.  It has to do with self-definition and confidence.  The Positive Archetype is the Warrior.  Warriors have the inner strength and resilience to see their dreams materialize.  The Negative Archetype is the Servant.  Servants work hard for others’ acknowledgement.  They sabotage themselves by giving their power to others.

Resolving Sacral Chakra Negativity

The Sacral Chakra has to do with life, vitality, self-gratification, and passion.  Sacral’s Positive  Archetype is The Emperor/Empress:  A person who enjoys pleasure, abundance, and enjoyment.  Negative Archetype is The Martyr:  Martyrs deprive themselves of the simple physical pleasures of life.  They are critical, sour, and condemning.

Resolving 1st Chakra Negativity

Chakras have a positive and negative archetype.  This week we will look at suggestions for resolving negativity of each of our seven major chakras.  Today we start with the Root Chakra—Positive  Archetype is The MotherNurturing, self-sufficient, responsible.  Negative Archetype is The Victim: Lacking energy, empowerment, and life force. 

Resolving 1st Chakra NegativityLocation:  In perineum at the base of the spine, and draws energy from the magnetic field at the earth’s core.  The energy moves up through the feet and legs, energizing blood and tissues in the body.

Function: Stimulates aggressive drives linked to survival.  The Root Chakra holds our genetic inheritance.  In its unconscious state, the Root Chakra carries the attitudes and prejudices formed by family, church, and culture.

Physical Body Energy:  Adrenals activate the kidneys’ fight-or-flight function.

Emotional Body Energy:  Aggression, anger, violence, and jealousy.

Mental Body Energy:  Attitudes of Separation, exclusivity, territory, belonging, and  right to one’s own space.

 Working Through Root Chakra Negativity (based on Ambika Wauters’ book, The Book of Chakras)Resolving 1st Chakra Negativity

1.  Cultivate patience.  When things do not go as planned,  you will not lose energy by being angry or frustrated.

2.  Allow time for things to come around in a positive way.   If you do not succeed in the beginning of a project, rethink it and let things develop.  This would be an excellent time to use a Positive Affirmation to Persevere!

3.  Do what is necessary to remain stable through change.  Develop Meditation Skills and ways to slow down the mind. Learn to live with change.  Be flexible and adaptable.

4.  Be secure in yourself and know that everything will be all right eventually.  Trust in life to see you through the difficult moments.  Do not despair when things do not go well.  Breathe, give yourself time to reflect on what is essential and important.  Make a plan to see your dreams unfold.  Life without a dream is dull.

5.  Be Grateful for the life you have and work to bring as much order into your life as possible. When things do go astray, you have more reserves to fall back on.

6.  Enjoy your Root Chakra’s Balanced Energy being  grounded, centered, healthy, and loving yourself!

 

Goddess of Willpower – Romi Kumu

April 16th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in GODDESS WISDOM

Goddess of Willpower-Romi KumuRomi Kumu is the Goddess of willpower and was a major goddess to the Baransama people. Her main following would be people from South America. It is believed that she is the Great Mother and that she created the world and everything in it. This includes the Underworld.

This South American Goddess of Creation is strongly connected to the Rainforest and Tigers. Her sacred stone is the bloodstone, which is the symbol of the warrior. Which suits her well considering she is a strong, powerful,  and aggressive goddess.

You need to feel the strength you have within and use that power to materialize that which you want.  Feel Powerful!  When you can look at your own needs and desires for happiness,  you will discover that you can better bring change and happiness to the people you love and to yourself.  Your happiness is not exclusive of theirs.  You will embark on a journey of self discovery.Goddes of Willpower - Romi Kumu

Romi Kumu’s Ritual, Get Your Way! is found in Amy Zerner & Monte Farber’s book Goddess, Guide Me:

1.  To get your way, tie a red scarf around your head or wear the color red in some way.

2.  Light a red candle to represent the fiery nature of your desires and a pungent stick of incense to carry your words through the air to all the world.

3.  Make a fan by folding a rectangle of red paper over and under several times.  On the folds of this fan write these words:  Strength of heart, strength of will, can my dearest dreams fulfill.  Fasten the fan with a paper clip and firmly wave it through the incense smoke to intensify the aroma. Say the words you have written on aloud one time for each fold in your fan.Goddess of Willpower - Romi Kumu

4.  Place fan under your pillow to empower strength of will.  Try “lucid dreaming” as you fall asleep.  Remember  that it is your dream, and you can will it to turn out the way you want.  This is reinforcing the fact that you have  the power to control your life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday's Healing Word - Wellness

Wellness is the quality or state of good physical, emotional, and spiritual health.   Caren Goldman writes in her book, Healing Words for the Body, Mind and Spirit,  “To be a picture of wellness, I must paint it myself.”

“Nurturing Yourself

is not selfish-

it’s essential to

your survival and

your well-being.”

~Renee Peterson Trudeau

Tuesday's Healing Word - Wellness

“The concept of total wellness

recognizes that our every thought, word, and behavior

affects our greater health and well-being.

And we, in turn, are affected not only emotionally

but also physically and spiritually.”
