I haven’t written a newsletter in a while. Although things are radically changing in our country and in the world, our personal change seems slowed down and placed in limbo during this year. Internally, I can feel this change in the world, and can see that life will be different. I’m just not sure which direction it will go. It appears to be either towards a domineering society that is controlled by an autocrat, or we will become enlightened into a new perspective of who we are to each other and how we interact and respect our fellow beings. I’m hoping for the latter.
In the meantime, Both Mike (my spouse) and I took some needed time off.
We had to delay our original plans to travel to Alaska—not on a cruise—but with family to Mike’s hometown in Sitka. We still had the time off, and Mike has been working in the hospital this entire time during the coronavirus outbreak. He really needed a break. So, we decided to a coronavirus-friendly road trip to: a) see some driving-friendly places in Oregon, Nevada, and California; and b) get the heck out of town for a little while.
But, let me backtrack a little bit and talk to you about Chakras. Here’s a diagram to reference:
Chakras are an entity that’s been well-known and studies for millennia, mostly through the Hindu and Buddhist faiths. As you may know, our bodies are composed of energy vessels called chakras. You can’t see them, hear them, or taste them. But they are there. Chakras become unbalanced and closed off when you experience a suffering: a heartbreak, feeling disconnected, lacked confidence or self-esteem, or have closed off your intuition, turned away from your spirituality, or shut down your heart so you don’t get ‘hurt.’ If your chakras are blocked, it can affect your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
How many chakras are there? There’s a count of at least 7 major chakras, 21 minor chakras, and up to 114 chakras total in the body.
If you’ve ever had energy work, you can feel the shifts in your chakras as the energy opens up and rebalances themselves during a healing session. These shifts can bring up a lot of yuck out of your body, and going through that elimination process is cathartic. Working with your chakras is an excellent way to keep yourself in harmony, even in the face of serious illness or or emotional downtimes. I highly recommend doing an energy healing session with a professional healer if you’re feeling out of sorts.
The Earth’s Root Chakra: Mt. Shasta, California
It’s taken years for me to learn how to balance my chakra energy. However, I never realized that chakras were energy sources for ALL LIVING THINGS, including Mother Earth. It makes sense, but I just never thought about it that way until I came upon information about the earth chakras.
Then it all made sense. There are locations of powerful vortex energy around the world that follow the chakra patterns.
The first chakra, or root chakra, is located in Mt. Shasta, California. This is the base of the earth’s energy. It’s energy is foundational and grounding. In the body, it’s located at the base of the spine, so this is the energy that grounds us, makes us feel safe and gives us a sense of belonging.
The energy of the world has been chaotic lately, with social distancing, economic uncertainty, and civil unrest. Root chakra energy is what many of us may need right now!
For practical sake, we stayed in Mt. Shasta overnight, and visited the crystal shops, and I even got an aura reading (all COVID-approved with masks and social distancing). There are spiritual readers in Mt. Shasta, but they must be called for an appointment. Overall, it is a sweet town and we got to talk to some locals who could tell us little tidbits about living in Shasta. My husband isn’t really into my woo stuff, but he lets me be me.
Have you been to any of the earth chakras? Look at the earth chakra diagram and let me know if you’ve visited any of these places, and if so, what did you experience, if anything.
Until next time, stay in good health and spiritual balance,
