The chakras

Chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit. Our bodies have 7 energy centers that look like spinning wheels, starting at our perineum and flowing in a straight line up to the crown of our head. In order to be 100% healthy, we must be in allignment. Each chakra must be open and spinning correctly.

The "root" chakra is at the perineum. It's color is red and it extends down to the earth. This is the chakra that governs our physical existance. When it is open you will feel grounded, stable and secure.

The "sacral" chakra is located at the area of the womb(in the same area for men, even though they don't have a womb). It's color is orange and it extends horizontalyl out from the body. This chakra governs creativity and emotions(to some extent). When it is open your feelings will flow freely.

The "solar plexus" chakra is located above the belly button, at the solar plexus(thus, the name). It's color is yellow and it also extends horizontally out from the body. This chakra is assosiated with will and desire. When it is open you will have sufficient self esteem and you will feel in control.

The "heart" chakra is located in the middle of the breast bone. It's color is green and extend horizontally out from the body. This chakra is assosiated with emotion and love. When it is open you are compassionate and friendly.

The "throat" chakra is located on the neck. It's color is bright blue and extends horizontally out from the body. This chakra is about self-expression and speech. When it is open you will express yourself clearly.

The "third eye" chakra is located between the eyes at the top of the nose. It's color is indigo and also extends out horizontally from the body. It is about insight and visualization. When it is open you will have good intuition.

The "crown" chakra is located at the top of the head. It's color is violet and extends up. This chakra connects us with God. I heard someone once describe this chakra as our umbilical cord that connects us with God. I liked that, so it's always stuck with me.

I often do a chakra connection, decribed by Brugh Joy in "Joy's Way," to get everything back in allignment. When I do a distance healing on someone I will also do something similar to get them all back into allignment.

Since I mentioned distance healing, I thought I'd mention that I offer this free of charge as I have not felt lead to ask money for it. Donations or trades are always accepted though.

Following your child-like heart

As a child, I had no idea what energy healing was. Thinking back, I could feel the energy and see some auras, but I didn't know not everyone could see and feel the things I could. I grew up in the Catholic church so I knew all about Jesus and his healings, but that was so untouchable to me, or so it seemed.

Now I have children and I practice energy healing on them, around them and with them. I believe there is more than just comfort that comes from a mama's kiss when a child get's a boo boo. I believe it's a form of healing.

It's amazing to me when I am hurting and one of my children will just place their hands on the exact spot, or give me a hug out of the blue. They haven't studied any certan modality, they don't know that holding the Prime Mover will get things going, because they haven't read anything on Jin Shin Jyutsu. They haven't studed accupressure. Heck my four year old is just learning how to read.

They know what to do, because they are just folowing their instinct. Something we start to loose our trust for as we grow. I think it's important to keep this. Folowing your instinct(or consience) is vital, in my opinion, to live life. We have to make decitions every day that affect us, and everyone around us. When I talk about following your instinct, there has to be a discernment between instinct and want. You can't just do anything you want, because you think it benefits you. That is selfishness. You have to search your heart and talk with God, then wait and listen for Him to guide you.

Being a Christian and Energy Healer

So often, Christians turn up their noses when someone starts talking about anything dealing with energy healing. I've never really understood this. Didn't Jesus heal countless people using his hands? Are we not to strive to be like Jesus every day?

I understand that we humans have taken this wonderful form of healing and distorted it. Adding things too it and taking the glory away from God. Putting the power into stones and special pieces of cloth. But can't we rely on a Rosary or cross the same way that 'new agers' rely on stones? Why is it that just because we don't know a whole bunch about these things, we automatically get scared of them?

I have been given the gift of healing. I can see people's auras. I use stones/crystals, herbs, essencial oils, homeopathy, muscle testing,etc. I see all these things on the same level. I believe that God made everything, even the stones on this Earth. I believe that He created them with different vibrations in them for us to use as tools. Why some people have more trouble using stones than they do herbs, I don't know.

I believe that we need to get back to this simple form of healing. It's much less invasive than even popping a tylenol, and in my experience, works much better.

In everything give the glory all to God.

We had a nasty storm run through early this morning about 12am. We almost lost the kid's wagon the wind was so strong. Thankfully, Rob ran out and caught it. I get really uneasy during storms. I always worry about the kids. What if this, what if that? UGH.

Everything is fine, nothing too bad, just really bad wind. I don't know if my peas survived the wind though. They looked pretty worn out this morning. I'll have to wait and see I guess.

It is so HOT!

Blech! Right now I'm in the only room in my house that is comfortable, the bedroom. We use window air conditioners, no central air for us, and one of them crapped out on us right before we got another hot, humid weather system. Oh, the luck. I don't like to be hot, it makes me crabby. So what if I survived a year in Iraq. So what if the top temp while I was there hit 162. So what! I'm hot now, and I don't like it.

That is all.

Natural Childhood

I've noticed a couple of you are visiting me from my link there. Hello, and welcome to my blog. If you are looking for gossip or for me to bash any one of the members there, you will not find it here. I choose not to do that. If you are just looking for me, HI!

Some things happened there, that were not good. I have appologized for my part and I have forgiven others for their part. I am hurt that I could just be thrown in the trash by a few people who called me thier friend. But I'm okay. I am no longer a member there, that was thier choice.

At any rate, I am very happy to have you all visit me here, as I miss the women on that board so very much. Please come back and visit me again.

In Galatians, Paul tells us what the fruits of the spirit are. Patience is one of them. It is something we grow into over time. It's not something we are born with, as I'm sure anyone who is a parent will agree with. LOL.

Being patient as a mama has been very hard for me. I struggle with it every day. Sometimes I just want to scream and run away. I never do, but I want to. What has helped me is to just think of my mothering experience like swimming in the ocean. (I've never actually swam in the ocean, so I am only using my imagination here.) Waves come and they go. Some waves will be bigger than others, but there is a peaceful end. In the words of "Dory", "Just keep swimming." and we will all reach that end, that peace we all seek.

Enter to win!!!!!!

Win the Essential Babywearing Stash from Along for the Ride (one Beco Butterfly, one Hotsling baby pouch, one BabyHawk Mei Tai, one Zolowear Ring Sling, and one Gypsy Mama Wrap)

So cool!!!!! I really really hope I win this.

Surviving TWO.

Holy cow! I thought my oldest gave me a tough time at the age of two. Either time has blurred the edges a bit, or my second child is WAY worse. I'm leaning a bit towards time blurring the edges. Regardless, today's emotion explotion was nothing short of amazing. This kid has some stamina and determination I tell you. LOL.

I don't even know what started it, but it escalated and lasted for about a half an hour!! Full on screaming and kicking for half an hour!! How did I survive this, you ask? Well, I'll tell you...

I'm reading "Awakened Heart Parenting" By Helen Hood. In her book she has a whole chapter devoted to 'tantrums.' I call them 'emotion explotions'. This term is not mine. I got it from Crystal at . Anyway, Helen Hood explains how she deals with screaming children. She just sits calmly beside them and rides out the wave of anger. I love this visual by the way, it helps me to know that there will be an end. I just have to survive this one wave. Once she can get eye contact with them they start to calm down. She doesn't have to say or do anything at all. She is not ignoring them, she is just a calm presence for them. After a while they will quit and either want physical contact like holding a hand or a hug and then they are on their way.

Well, it reminded me to just be calm and stay there. So many times, we just want to run from it. Send them to their room, put them in time out, whatever you want to call it. How can a two year old know how to calm themselves, without us teaching them first? Our children will follow our examples, NOT our words. Because I just remained a calm, loving presence for my child, he was able to calm down. When he would ask something, I would respond to him with a loving voice. I did not laugh at him, or ignore him through all of this. I did get a little upset when he decided to throw himself at me and headbut me in the nose. Oh well, no harm done, I said ouch and he continued on with his screaming.

What did I learn from all of this? First of all, I learned that my two year old can NOT skip a nap at all. Period. LOL. Secondly, I learned that if I just stay there for him I am helping him. Thirdly, I learned that it does eventually come to an end.

So that was my day. Love to all. Peace out.
