Midweek Spread 11/05/14 Gypsymoons.com

It has been a while since I did a midweek spread but I just got this new deck called the Chakra Insight Oracle Card by Caryn Sangster last week and well I wanted to start using it! So you know the drill choose the card that you feel most attracted to. Then Scroll down to see what message it brings to you!

Card #1 Inner Child, Playfulness, Lightheartedness, Innocence and Wonder

This card is part of the Solar Plexus Chakra group of cards. It comes forward to remind you to connect with that inner child. To open yourself to the innocence and wonder you can experience in this world. Not everything is doom and gloom but you need to be open to experience it. Look at her she is leaping through the air with arms open looking at the butterflies and rainbows, allowing herself to be happy. You need to take time to connect with your inner child, to bring back that playfulness and lightheartedness that people in love with. You know it is within you, you just need to let loose, be spontaneous and have a fun time!

Card #2 Seeing, Perspective, Truth, Knowledge and Clarity

This card is part of the Third Eye Chakra group of cards. This card is calling you to open your eyes, heart and mind to see the truth and the big picture. We live our lives seeing things the way we want to see them however that may not be the real truth. This is the time to seek that knowledge and bring clarity to your thoughts. Look for the positive in all people and situations and see the beauty of life reveal itself to you. Take a look at yourself and the world around you and see the reality that you are creating. Is it good? or do we need to do a course correction? Take the time to meditate and spend time in self-reflection. This is the time to let go of self-limiting ideas and to allow the real truth come forth.

Card #3 Honesty, Truth, Transparency, Sincerity and Communication

This card is part of the Throat Chakra group of cards. This card is calling you to be honest with yourself and others. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Be transparent let others see right through you. Let them see who you truly are. The world needs to know you. Speak your truth, if there are things that have been left unsaid, take the time now to express them. Stand up for what you believe and for what is right. Find your own voice among many. Know that it is going ok and that you will be loved and accepted by the Divine. Don’t let fear be your guide, but allow honesty to guide you. The more you live your personal truth, the more clearly the Divine can move and work through you. There is something to be said about the expression “The Truth Shall Set You Free!” It will give you the freedom to be unapologetic who you are.

Chakralicious! Naval Warrior

Cheetah1

Naval Guardian Journey

As I drifted back in to the journey to find my Solar Plexus Chakra Guardian. I started to see lots of green swirls of color. I immediately recognize who the spirit was, she was Cheetah. As the realization washed over me, all of a sudden found myself standing in an African  savannah and she was standing to my right however she was about 10 feet ahead of me and her back was towards me. As I approach she turned her head to acknowledge my presence she then beckoned me to come closer telepathically. Which I did, as soon as I was at her side we both just stared out in to the savannah and took in the beautiful setting. The Sun was hanging low on the horizon washing the savannah in its beautiful golden glow. We saw a sea of yellowish tall grass that was being caressed by a gentle breeze and in the distance we saw some green and mountains. I started to walk and so did she. This spirit I know, I have worked with her before and with her showing up as my guardian of this Chakra, it even makes more sense why she has become an integral part of my life.

She then began telling me that she was here to help me come in to my own power, she says I have come a long way but there is still much to be done. She said that she is here to help me understand and accept my own power. She said that I have to completely accept this fact, which she was quick to point out NOT to understand it, but to ACT and FEEL accordingly to the fact that I am a co-creator of this reality (and as she said this the scenery changed from the African savannah to the dewy emerald forest setting that I always find solace and that I prefer). As it was time for me to return she gave me this beautiful necklace with a glowing green gem like the one she wears on her head. I was happy, thankful and excited to see and share with her yet again. I am so happy that she has taken an interest in helping me be everything that I can be.

One interesting tidbit is that she had always worn a green gem on her forehead and I never thought twice about it. Which I find now interesting since Manipura means Lustrous Gem. I also found interesting that as I was writing this blog she was guiding me to find images to use for it. As I was looking for images I found this picture that an artist named Iza Pug drew which made me feel as if she had posed for this and that it was her portrait!

The other picture that she liked was this one. She says granted that is not a cheetah but to me it does embody our relationship. When I see her, I see you! Now you can see yourself through my eyes. A warrior woman who is assertive and full of power. She knows what she wants and she makes it happen. She then says very sweetly, I am always by your side. The feeling of love and acceptance that I felt from her were quite overwhelming.

Basic Information and Insights

The Naval Chakra also known as the Solar Plexus Chakra is ruled by the element of Fire. Its affirmation is “I use my warrior energy to help myself and others in a just manner” and its mantra is OM MANGALAYA NAMAHA. The naval Chakra deals with will, power and assertiveness. For me the Sumerian deities that are connected to this Chakra is Utu, the God of Sun and Justice and Gibil the God of Fire.

This was an amazing Chakra to delve in. For starters, we do our journeys before any actual Chakra information is studied or discussed in class. I found absolutely fascinating, that she used words that define this Chakra. I am not going to pretend that I had no knowledge of the Chakras prior to this workshop. I did, but I always associated this Chakra with the word confidence and not power (which I found out thanks to this workshop that confidence is more tied to the Sacral Chakra). This was a new perspective that she brought up to me. She made me shift from the word confidence to personal power and assertiveness. As a shaman this is a concept that we work a lot with and I still find myself working hard at it. When doing spiritual work at times, I wonder am I really fulfilling my role as a healer and at times, this self-doubt comes over my mind and brings with it the clouds. I am happy I have Cheetah to help me chase them away!

When I think about it, I still have certain fears that I am still working through. I am just happy that I have such an ally by my side. With us just having that simple conversation about the picture that she liked and why she liked it. It has helped me to shift my mindset when tackling certain situations and thought patterns. It also showed me how much further I must go and the importance of having a Can Do Attitude! She believes in me and therefore I believe in myself that much more. I truly want to be that woman in that picture!

Another thing that I find interesting is the presence of the green color which brings to my attention the aspects ruled by Heart Chakra. In all of my dealings with her I have felt loved and warmth and she has always worn a green gem on her forehead. Her gem, serves me as a reminder that though we become powerful in our own nature, and when we are faced with those times that we must exert that power, we have to do so from a place of love. The love regulates our will and power, it is a great way to keep checks and balances. The fact that it is on her forehead it is difficult to miss that reminder, that above all we need to come from a place of love!

Chakralicious! Introduction Week

Soul-Healing-Image-

If you are like me, you probably have a basic knowledge of the most common Chakras in our body. I was introduced to them in a workshop I attended a while ago. In that particular workshop we learned basic facts about them. We learned how to activate them and see when they need our attention. Since then, I felt confident enough to be able to work with them in my craft and for self-improvement. I would use Chakra’s energy to infuse amulets with whatever energy I wanted. I have used them in spell work to charge mojo bags as well as candles however I have never done shamanic work with them until now!

I always strive for self-improvement and I love learning new things. So when I saw a 9 week Chakra workshop that used each meeting day to solely focus on one of the Chakras, it absolutely peaked my interest! I had been able to accomplish enough with the little knowledge I had of them, so gaining a better understanding of them I was very certain that it would open new doors for me.

During our first meeting we covered basic information on the system as well as discussed the different goals we were going to have in each session and homework for the next session was assigned. This is the start my Chakralicious journey through my Chakras! I started by taking a self-assessment quiz on how our Chakras were doing. The results were that they were all very strong, except one, my heart Chakra (it was average) and it did not come as a surprise. It is one of those things that I do struggle with. I have seen and experienced the ugly side of people and I have been hurt many times by those who I have trusted and therefore I tend to be guarded. I sometimes lack compassion towards those who by their own actions have negative repercussions. I am a firm believer that you reap what you sow and if you keep choosing time and  time again the wrong thing, well you can’t expect a positive outcome. So I do struggle with being compassionate to all, regardless of their conditions. But everyone have their own struggles and this is mine. If you would like to take a quiz to see how yours are working you can do so here.

Our next assignment was to journey to discover our Chakra Guardians and to receive a gift from them. This concept was new to me and I was delighted to have found it. Now I can use, shamanic practices to learn and connect with myself in another way. I find that shamanic practices are truly invaluable in your spiritual journey.  I will be sharing with you all, those journeys in separate blogs or this blog would be incredibly long! So if you are interested in seeing how this particular journey unfolds, keep an eye out for those blogs that have Chakaralicious titles.
