Journey to Wholeness (XI)–I KNOW Crown Chakra

He IS in everything

He IS in everything

The Crown Chakra represents our spiritual connection to a higher power, understanding and comprehending our ability to commune with the Divine, to God. Its location is at the top of the head, slightly to the back.

When mastering the lower chakras and their vibrational aspects, we become aware that we’re spiritual beings living a human existence. With no spiritual base, imbalances can range from joining cultic groups for guidance to ego-mania.

God created us in His image, from His Divine nature. Like a magnet, we’re (super) naturally drawn to higher electromagnetic fields OR to the spiritual deficit: uninspired atheism!

This chakra corresponds to the pineal and pituitary gland, located directly beneath it.

Keep a journal

Keep a journal

You can open your Crown Chakra by dreaming. Focus on your life dreams. Write them down, and make a plan to achieve them.

The note “B” and the toning of “ē,” as in bee, balance the crown chakra.

The color amethyst is associated with The Crown Chakra. Amethyst, alexandrite, and diamonds are wonderful. (Diamonds remind us of our spiritual focus, enhance clarity of thought, and draw toxins from the physical body.)

The pineal gland is MAJOR in your life purpose. According to the Steadman’s Medical dictionary, the pineal gland is known as the “Epiphysis” gland. (Remind you of something?)

The American diet is full of pineal gland “calcifiers,” like carbonated beverages and fluoridated water. Avoid fluoridated water! Fluoride filters, distillers, and reverse-osmosis filters are available for removing fluoride from drinking water.

White and herbal teas may be better for you because black and green teas are “incredibly efficient at absorbing fluoride from the environment and then releasing it into your body, preventing proper iodine absorption.” Drink responsibly…organic teas, please.

Idaho Blue Spruce #3093 (5-ml at $37.83 retail or $28.75 member price) is another amazing Young Living Essential Oil! Not only does its potent oxygenating quality open the pineal gland that becomes calcified/blocked because of chemical and other toxins, it helps release emotional trauma.

Sacred Frankincense #3550 (5 ml at $55.59 retail, $42.29 member price) is the holy oil of the Middle East, with over 52 references in the Bible. It increases spiritual awareness and enhances communication with The Creator, as does Frankincense. Dan Keskey calls Frankincense “our divine nature activator.” https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

Suggested application for both of these oils is at the top of the foot (between the first and 2nd toe) and/or at the middle of the forehead at the hair line.  These are body and brain pressure points.

I know this series has been a lot to take in for many of you. My desire is to shine a light on common misconceptions about spirituality and on what I believe is God’s original “medicine”–essential oils, specifically those formulated by Dr. Gary Young of Young Living.

I wish you ALL health, happiness, and harmony within your body and with each other. Please remember and appreciate the wonders of the earth that sustain us.

God bless your journey to wholeness!

In basic summary: “The Law of Pure Potentiality governs the seventh chakra. When your roots are receiving nourishment from the earth in the first chakra, your creative juices are flowing in the second, your intentions are empowered in the third, your heart is open and exchanging love with those around you in the fourth, you are spontaneously expressing your highest self in the fifth, you are in touch with your inner voice in the sixth, only then, does energy move into the crown chakra and you remember your essential nature as infinite and unbounded…you know yourself as a spiritual being temporarily localized to a body and mind.” ~Depok Chopra

Journey to Wholeness (X) I SEE–Third Eye/Forehead Chakra

Intuition is Wisdom’s child.

Remember the 1998 movie, “City of Angels?” Angel Seth took his new friend/past angel to the angel’s gathering place on the beach to watch the sunrise. With closed eyes, facing east, Seth asked him, “Do you hear it?” meaning the sun’s vibration or song. (I had read everything living has its own vibration, but that’s when I got it! I saw with my intuition. The eyes of my understanding were opened. An INsight.)

This week is the Medullar, Brow or, don’t close your mind (get it?), Third Eye Chakra. Frontally, it’s located just above and between the physical eyes. This chakra corresponds to the eyes and pituitary gland. In Christian teaching, it refers to the “eye” of meditation and reflection.

When open, you’re intuitive, imaginative, and decisive. You see your true self and actualize your life direction and life purpose.

If closed, there can be self-doubt, indecision, and distrust. Depression, sleep disorders, learning disabilities, thyroid imbalances, hormonal disorders, headaches, sinus and eye problems may develop.

The note “A” and the toning of “eh,” as in face, balance the Medullar Chakra.

For EXTRA vibrations and overtones, the same goes for sound healing using tuning forks. After striking the fork on your knee, hold it over the chakra for several seconds. Just because you don’t hear its sound after a few seconds doesn’t mean it’s not vibrating. For its full benefit, wait before striking it again.

The law of Cause and Effect govern this chakra. Listen to that still inner voice inside, guiding you to your full potential. Quiet the internal voices of other’s judgments, expectations, and “you should.” Identify the sound and desire of your own soul. Remember you’re a spark of the Divine!

To stoke the fire of your destiny, develop the practice of meditation. In our Western civilization, we forget that Jesus didn’t wear a clergy collar and He wasn’t Protestant or Catholic. He was a holy man from the Middle East, comfortable with its traditions. I believe His “prayers” were not petitioning God. He knew God was IN Him. I believe he spent quiet times listening and looking within.

Meditation isn’t a prayer meeting or worship session; nor is it petitioning for needs and wants. From our youth, we’re encouraged to explore, pursue, and conquer the outside world. As we mature, we realize the undiscovered country of our soul. The noise of the world can drown out the gentle whispers of your soul Identity.

“Meditate day and night….for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” (Joshua 1:8) Tune in to calm, and His direction.

tranquility

Tranquility

Star gaze, drink in a full moon, and camp under the heavens. Unite yourself with creation, that you may create.

Indigo and purple are associated with The Medullar Chakra. Wear indigo clothing and the gemstones Lapis Lazuli, deep Tanzanite, and Amethyst. (Amethyst calms the mind, enhances mental activity, and amplifies thought, increasing intuition.)

Eat organic blueberries, blackberries, and purple grapes. Drink R.W.KNUDSEN “Just Concord.” Grapes benefit the eyes, intestinal track, blood, and brain. They cleanse the liver and kidneys, and grapes can lift your spirits–an emotional and spiritual benefit.

Inspiration #3366 (5-ml at $79.28, retail) was used by the native people of North America, Arabia, and India to enhance meditation and spirituality. Diffuse for inspiration and to create a spiritual environment. Topically apply to the forehead and crown.

Diffused during the day, Dream Catcher #3330 (15-ml at $94.74 or $77.00 member price) can help meditation and help you visualize your dreams. It has also been used to keep bad dreams away. Topically, it can be applied to your forehead, ears, throat, eyebrows or neck. Let those positive dreams shine through! Diffused at night, Z-z-z-z…) https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

Journey to Wholeness (IX) I Speak-Throat Chakra

After reading Sound of Heaven, Symphony of Earth by Ray Hughes, I actively began listening to the “symphony of earth.” Ray clarified for me that all “categories, and forms of light and sound exist within the same spectrum.”

INVISIBLE ENERGY

INVISIBLE ENERGY

The first time God said, ‘Let there be light,’ (Genesis 1:3) He was also proclaiming the beginning of sound.”

The Cervical, Neck or Throat Chakra represents the spoken word, the right to speak.

In the front, it’s located at the base of the neck, at the hollow of the collarbone. Its spiral is rooted in the third cervical vertebra at the base of the skull. This chakra corresponds to the lungs, ears, nose, thyroid, and throat. Think about it        

    ((((((((((((breath+vibration/frequency=sound=communication=Creation))))))))))) 

When open, there’s creative expression in speech, writing, and the arts. We’re integrated. We feel peace, express truth, and display loyalty.

My “right to speak” was long coming. Now, I’m adamant about encouraging children in their “right” to say “NO!” Don’t punish your children for saying no. Children ARE PEOPLE with emotions…just as we adults! LISTEN to their heart cries. They trust your overseeing of them. If you don’t listen, they learn not to trust.    

If you’ve been silenced, sore throats and creative blocks occur; also headaches, insomnia, co-ordination problems, indecisiveness, depression, thyroid imbalances, infections, and more, may plague you. Do you experience a fog of confusion and doubt, like it’s raining on your parade? (I refer to this in the “Ingratitude” chapter of Part Three: Roadblocks of my book, HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU http://booklocker.com/books/6811.html  )

Singing, humming, reading poetry aloud, meaningful conversations, the note “G,” and the intonation of “aye,” as in eye, balance the Throat Chakra.

Humming is a God-given benefit of vocal cord speech. Do you know the frequency of a cat’s purr facilitates healing in them? Aside from decreasing depression and lowering your blood pressure, there’s also a health benefit to your critters of be stroked, held, and loved!

As Solomon stated, “there’s nothing new under the sun.”

“Healing through frequency is not new! John Wesley, founder of Methodism, experimented with a “machine” to heal people. He used a direct current voltage-regulator (a battery) to heal. He recorded many occasions where he “electrified people” and claimed to have helped thousands. He felt healing needed to include prayer. His journals record numerous miracles of God’s healing through prayer. He even prayed for his horse once, and the horse was healed. He had special compassion on those who needed healing and even dispensed medicine from his chapels.”-Kari Browning

 “Electrified?” Maybe receiving shocks from door knobs and carpet is beneficial. It certainly stimulates vocalization from me!

Whatever balancing method you choose, sound is the energy of all things. Sound can heal wounded hearts, release pain, reduce stress, elevate mood, and w-a-y more.

The color blue is associated with the Throat Chakra. As you have learned, to assist in balancing energy: Wear it. Look at it. Eat it.

Blue is a unisex color. Holding my turquoise, blue topaz, or aquamarine-adorned hand out in front of my eyes makes me say, “Uh-hum!” See, I’m hummm-ing. (Turquoise and Aquamarine stimulate self-expression and help communicate compassionately.)

As for eating it, besides blueberries, bilberries, and blue-scaled fish, there aren’t many naturally occurring blue foods. (Blue M & M’s and blue Skittles don’t count!) In fact, the color blue is an appetite suppressant. Some dietitians even suggest eating on a blue plate, and replacing your refrigerator light with a blue light. For our ancient ancestors, blue food was a warning: poisonous!

Decrees: “I speak my truth. I speak up for me. My voice is heard.”

Directly applied on area of concern, Myrrh #3593 (15 ml at $85.20, $64.75 member price) is an excellent remedy for oral hygiene problems: throat, mouth, and gum irritations.

When diffused, Brain Power #3313 (5 ml at $85.20 or $64.75 member price) helps concentration and focus, clearing the confusion of “brain fog.” When applied to the lneck, throat or under the nose, it is uplifting to the emotions.

Journey to Wholeness VI: Sacral Chakra (I Feel)

Oprah talks about life as a class. I’ve recognized its share of tests. Whatever your assignment in life, don’t sweep anger, disappointment, and depression under the rug of denial. The energy it takes to fuel anger and unforgiveness wreaks havoc on our bodies, is emotionally destructive, and opens us up to spiritual confusion. (Did you know that anger affects your liver? http://www.greekmedicine.net/hygiene/Emotions_and_Organs.html )

The Creative or Sacral Chakra connects us to our sensing abilities, issues accepting others and new experiences, our sexuality, vitality, and creativity. ALL about our right to feel!

Artist from memory (Tom Hale)

When this chakra is open: we’re social, compatible, have the ability for intimacy, enjoy a sense of well-being, abundance, and creativity. It’s energy fuels the creative force that enables you as an artist, builder, chef, crafter, organizer, speaker, writer, etc. It empowers you to create a life of love and abundance. Each day, you co-create your life anew. When closed: imbalances may be impotency, frigidity, urinary tract problems, allergies, lower back issues, depression, alcohol and drug abuse, and eating disorders.

Jumper cables to help energy flow from the Sacral Chakra are water aerobics, aromatic baths, massage, or a “Raindrop Technique” by a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist (CRTS). After one of these, I feel relaxed, yet energized.

The musical note “D” and decrees of “I listen to my gut feelings. I feel my feelings. I love my feelings. I am faith, hope, and love expressed.” help stimulate sacral energy.

Orange represents the Sacral Chakra. I LOVE orange! I wear it, use it in accent colors, and eat lots of carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, oranges, and salmon.

Using Young Living’s Orange Essential oil #3602 ($14.14 for 15ml) for aromatic hot baths provides emotional support, as well as support to the digestive and immune systems. Orange EO can be added as a food enhancement, to water for natural flavoring, as for hot “tea.” Yum!

Young Living’s Essential Oil Trauma Life #6350 ($64.47, or $49 member price, for 5ml retail) is an oil blend that D. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living, created at Steven Seagal’s request for his work in hospital trauma centers. It can cleanse and release emotional trauma from accidents, assault, abuse, loved one’s death, etc. It may relieve anger, fatigue, and stresses that compromise the immune system. https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

(Due to the fact that one essential oil contains hundreds of biochemicals, and that each person’s body chemistry is different, one essential oil can be used in many situations. And, because of their “strong bioactive constituents,” some oils should not be used on babies, children, or pets.)

How are you progressing on your journey? I’d love to hear your experiences.

Journey to Wholeness-Introduction

I’ve reigned from my chariot for 37 years (40 at this edit). It’s not a record, but it’s up there. In my Memoir, Views From My Chariot http://booklocker.com/books/6235.html , I use what I’ve learned to encourage, educate, and inspire others in their walk with lots of humor, hope, and a section of howtos.

My follow-up book, HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU http://booklocker.com/books/6811.html, is a creative, doable, howto be the best you, strewn with leads to discover, or recapture, your life’s purpose with passion and power to coddiwomple to your Bestdom. I finish with some tongue-in-cheek farcical facts, food fun, and playful puns.

In my “Color Me Red, Orange, and Yellow” chapter, I merely skimmed the surface of color’s influence on and importance to our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual wholeness. In my “Journey to Wholeness” series, I will expound on these color’s influence of and importance to our true power system– our body’s energy centers or Chakras. I include how sound is therapeutic and offer alternative healing tips with Young Living EOs. http://conversationswithcynthia.com/the-essentials-2/ I will also add a few of my life-upgrade coaching self-help tools for more self-empowerment..

If you’re thinking chakras sound “New Age,” in TRUTH, our energy center’s colors originated from “The Old Man” – Sam Eddy. God liked them so much, He displayed their ordered colors in His kiss of promise: the rainbow!

For clarity, I reiterate how I live my life and what I profess: I’m a conservative Christian with unconventional experiences with God; God with a capital “G.” I believe in the eternal existence of I Am (before anything was), Who IMAGINEERED and SPOKE into creation the expanse of the universes and us–“who live and move and have our BEing” (Acts 17:28). We are His Inspir-a-tion (“inspire” breathe into; “-tion” action or process of doing something), housed in a physical body–His pulsing well-spring of Life.

For awhile now, I’ve been involved with Young Living’s Essential oils and their benefits to my emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness, even for my cats. Thus said, I’m an investigative novice in body energy. I do know, ALL our life experiences are imprinted in our physical body systems and shout to us with attention-getting signs and dis-ease. Dis-ease, and those “buttons” we believe others push, are emotional memories knocking on the door of our consciousness. Awaiting our love and gratitude, they faithfully signal until we realize (see with real eyes) their message to transform our life. When all is well, awareness, health, wholeness, and vitality flow.

If your life purpose, direction, and vitality have waned or wearied, this series on empowerment is for you! It’s an invigorating B12 shot of health, hope, and wholeness!

(Normally, I keep my articles around 500-words, an easy-read. My second and third, the basis for my “Journey to Wholeness” series, will be longer.)

Until next week..
