CHAKRA BEAUTY SERIES: THE SACRAL

Let's bring some energy and color into our lives and get back in touch with our energy centers, or chakras!

When Spring is around the corner, I just really want to embrace colors, come back to alignment and create vibrant energy. So I gravitate towards working with my chakras! I teamed up with a beautiful soul sister of mine, Monica, or Notyourbigsister on YouTube, to bring some chakra beauty regimes and makeup tips you can try to enhance your natural beauty and realign your chakras!

I will show you how to create bath rituals for each chakra and my dear friend (we go way back to our theater days, and would play with makeup for hours!) will show you some awesome vlogs on how to use the chakra colors in your makeup and beauty routine!

So, what are the Chakras?

We are all made of energy. Our atoms buzz together to create this energy we know as the human body. Our body then produces more energy and this is where the chakras come into play.  The word chakra is Sanskrit and means ‘wheel.’ From these wheels we are taking in and releasing significant amounts of energy from our body. Western society is very new to this concept and way of understanding our body. Eastern medicine takes the energies of the chakras into serious consideration for overall health and has created and crafted the knowledge of what we know of the chakras for thousands of years. We can learn so much from these subtle energies within and without us.

There are seven main chakras (there are also a lot of other smaller chakras we will not be focusing on) that run along our spine. The spinal cord is the main channel for our nervous system to power our entire body with signals and messages from the brain. It is no surprise our main energy wheels run along this path. Each chakra governs an area of the body and the emotions, sensations, and functions that go with this area.

SACRAL 101

  • Sankrit: Svadhisthana, “sweetness”
  • Symbol: 6 petal crescent moon
  • Location: lower abdomen
  • Color: orange
  • Tarot: High Priestess, Moon, Temperance, the Cup suit
  • Association: creativity, sexual energy, feelings, intuition
  • Symptoms: lower back issues, bladder issues, moon-time/reproductive issues
  • Imbalances: over-emotional, jealousy, possessiveness
  • Achieved State: depth of emotions
  • Crystals: amethyst, aquamarine, carnelian, black/peach/rainbow moonstone, orange calcite, rose quartz, selenite 
  • Incense: jasmine, lemon balm, rose, sweet orange

The Sacral Chakra in Sanskrit is the Swadhishthana Chakra and is the second energy spot of the Chakra body. It is located two inches below the belly button and helps connects us to the watery realm of our emotions and creativity. It is in charge of the sexual organs, lower back, and intestines, as well as our emotions and intuition. When our Sacral Chakra is balanced we feel open to our emotions and can control our reactions in healthier ways. We also have a fulfilling sex life and can trust our intimate partners. We can fully listen and be open to our intuition to make healthy decisions and our own creative flow is rich. When there is an imbalance in the Sacral area we may become blocked from our creativity and it is hard to listen or trust our intuition. We may feel like helpless victims to our emotional whims and our libidos are non-existent. Lower back pain and sexual issues may persist as well.

If you want to learn more about the chakras, I wrote an ecourse all about them! With Chakra Rhythms you will receive an ebook, calendars, meditations, and recipes for each energy center! You can learn more here. Let's get started!

Sacral Meditation

Let us open to the energy of Sacral Chakra before we begin the beauty ritual. This will help you come into a space of receiving and openness to really allow the chakra to flow through you. Mala beads are wonderful tools for meditation and to help us focus our intent. This stunning Sacral Mala is handcrafted by Natalie ofBright Star and Buffalo

From Natalie:

Banyan Tree Mala

Reminder jewelry by bright star and buffalo

Our "Banyan Tree" mala is warming and healing...  wearing it stimulates the Svādhishthāna Chakra (sacral) and the energies of creativity, sensuality, faith, satisfaction, and clarity of feeling. The "Banyan'' leaf and roots open us to our highest potential in these domains.
This mala is made from bayong wood.  Each bead is wire worked/wrapped by hand with recycled copper wire.  There are 36 beads (an even division of 108).  Our "Banyan leaf and roots" is hand forged from conflict free sheet copper (each one is unique) as an end/Guru bead.

*A percentage of each mala purchase goes to Trees for The Future - A non-profit devoted to reforestation and the elimination of economic hardship due to deforestation in environmentally decimated regions of the world.  Thank you for your contribution.
 

If you would like to purchase one of her stunning malas feel free to email her: brightstarandbuffalo@yahoo.com

Hold your mala in your non-dominant hand in between your thumb and middle finger. As you pass over each bead, imagine your sacral chakra, womb space, glowing a vibrant orange color and let this color swirl within your womb, taking you deeper into your inner ocean. You can vocally say "Vam" (Vom) - that is the mantra for the Sacral chakra in Sanskrit, as you touch each bead, or you can say your own mantra.... Sexy, Fertile, Sensual, Whole, Worthy, Creatrix, Goddess, etc. if you don't have malas feel free to hold any orange or sacral crystals in your palms! My favorite for the Sacral Chakra is Moonstone! Do this meditation until you feel sexy, or whatever you want to embody and begin your beauty Ritual!

Sensual Sacral Chakra Bath

Sacral Stones:

  • Moonstone: This stone represents the waxing moon and full moon. She reminds of the cycles of ebb and flow and how nothing can remain the same for long. She assists with sacral and third-eye issues to really allow us to listen and trust our intuition. She helps to balance hormones, moon-time and emotions. A stone for new beginnings.
  • Carnelian: She assists with sacral issues, such as sexual and creative energies, womb issues, and because of her vibrancy, she replenishes energy. She will help you tap into your creativity while giving you energy to do so! Keep her around while you create and see where it leads. She lends you courage to release sexual trauma and pain, while giving you enthusiasm and encouragement.
  • For this bath surround yourself with Sacral stones, lots of bubbles, and add 20 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil to the water. You will feel like a Goddess, trust me.

Feel free to add cups of sea salts to bring in the ocean energy of this chakra. Feel yourself becoming one with the water.

When you step out of the water, anoint your womb/sacral chakra with the Ylang Ylang and relax the rest of the evening. Walking around in a flowy kimono adds an extra flutter to this ritual. Afterward try this beautiful eye shadow tutorial bringing the color vibration of orange and sassiness to your aura. Have fun adorning yourself!

DREAMCATCHER CLEANSE

I recently acquired a new dreamcatcher from the lovely Laura and wanted to share a simple ritual I do with my dreamcatchers every so often.  The dreamcatchers I own have been hanging and catching the bad dreams and negative energies and watching over me and my little family in multiple places and environments. Whenever I add one to the mix, or what I now call my "dream wall" I like to cleanse them altogether and reset their energy. First let's learn about the lore of the dreamcatcher.

DREAMCATCHER LEGEND

A Chippewa Tale

A spider was quietly spinning his web in his own space. It was beside the sleeping space of Nokomis, the grandmother. Each day, Nokomis watched the spider at work, quietly spinning away. One day as she was watching him, her grandson came in.

"Nokomis-iya!" he shouted, glancing at the spider. He stomped over to the spider, picked up a shoe and went to hit it.

"No-keegwa," the old lady whispered, "don't hurt him."

"Nokomis, why do you protect the spider?" asked the little boy. The old lady smiled, but did not answer.

When the boy left, the spider went to the old woman and thanked her for saving his life.

He said to her, "For many days you have watched me spin and weave my web. You have admired my work. In return for saving my life, I will give you a gift."

He smiled his special spider smile and moved away, spinning as he went.

Soon the moon glistened on a magical silvery web moving gently in the window.

"See how I spin?" he said. "See and learn, for each web will snare bad dreams. Only good dreams will go through the small hole. This is my gift to you. Use it so that only good dreams will be remembered. The bad dreams will become hopelessly entangled in the web."

So I simply go around to each of my dreamcatchers and smudged them with sage and palo santo. I thank each of them for being in my life. I allow the smoke to swirl through the feathers up through the web.

It is so simple, yet their is such a great shift afterward. It feels as though a weight has been lifted from my walls. I like to do this periodically, and I encourage you all to try it too!

ARIES ::   You are experiencing some changes of path that are FROM inspiration that comes when you are both pulled back and trusting in spirit AND when you are thinking of others and wanting to make better contributions to the world THROUGH thinking of them, and not only you. This feels like some sort of mirror action is opening you more to how you influence and affect others and this has YOU evolving and becoming more of the person you want to be in life.   Outside influences are showing you things that you have done and you are sort of set back and watching this and seeing that you need to make some changes in order to be a better person. This can be how you see yourself on film and realize you need to work out or change your appearance or something like that. I don’t mean you need to do that but I want you to understand this from seeing yourself from an outside perspective. And something is happening in your life that is showing you more of what you have been unable to see and NOW you will really want to do all you can to right this ship and to be the best influence on others you can be in life.  AND, this all comes from trusting life and being more relaxed with the natural unfoldment of how things SHOULD take place. “And so it is”, may be something you are now saying. There is a new trust, which will bring a new patience! Also you will experience a refinement of self THROUGH the groups you are joined in and also with your friends, so expect to scale down or build up. Go towards what MOVES you to learn and become a better human being.

TAURUS :: Oh lovely day my beautiful and favorite sign! Maybe I shouldn’t make one sign my favorite but I JUST DO. I always love the Taurus ones so I always want to spoil you with words of adoration and upliftment!  I raise you UP!  So feel good about that. You have a friend in me!  Okay anyway. So YES, things are moving UP UP UP for you. Career is oh so highlighted and you are going to be refining some of the work you are offering to others and also making changes with any projects you have been contemplating for a while now. Collaborations are also where you are headed, so join up with those you love because you are to be broadening your scope through the people in your life. Choose people who match you! Don’t go down to a C, when you know you are an A.  And now you know I will always see you as an A, so go for more A’s and then together you will be A+!  Think about that too, and how we can never be A+ on our own and NEED THE OTHER to move up to A+ status.  You get my point that together you will be doing so much more in the world. Now this also can have to do with beneficial friendships or partnerships in your life… so you need to recognize if you are with the A crowd in all ways shapes and forms.  There is still more clearing and work to do but you are making shifts with the people in your life based on this grading scale because you ARE moving up and are heading towards the land of unlimited possibilities but this is based on your vibration and your vibration changes when you are with mismatched energies. Don’t make any drastic moves to change but do be aware of this.  And the more you align to these new manifestations THROUGH career, the more you will uncover mismatched energies with people in your life. I always say too to pay attention to who applauds your success and who feels threatened by your success.  The threatened energy actually harms you and has you playing smaller… so pay close attention to that!

GEMINI :: Nothing but blue skies, love! Blue, blue skies for you!  There may be a cloud or two that dips you down but for the most part, you are moving into a new space that is waking you to ways to create changes and do better with what you have been doing. This can be a time when there are so many opportunities coming your way for you to showcase your gifts and to offer more of what you really know how to do so very well.  You are interested in everything, which is why the Gemini tends to not be able to narrow down WHICH PATH to follow, but I can see that this one is from something that you have done for a long time now. You have been on this path for a while and now it is just evolving into something new and more exciting. It does not feel like a new path or even one that is out of the blue surprising, it just feels like new elements are coming into it so that your old job FEELS brand new and exciting.  Something outside of you is joining with you and THIS makes everything feel brand new. This makes me think of the threat of death and how it rebirths something in us. Through something ALMOST lost, you are feeling REBORN and good to go.  Now since you are the one that wants to do everything and study everything and do all the things that interest you,  you are being asked to hold more trust in your life that the thing you are REALLY good at and REALLY excel at WILL come forward and be more showcased over the next few months.  Trust is what you need and also the narrowing down of what you truly excel at and not what just merely interests you. THAT is how the Gemini gets grounded down into reality space. Otherwise you just stay up in the mind chasing after all the interesting things and never getting down to the truth of what shines from within you. 

CANCER :: Oh this actually feels pretty GOOD.  There may be some uncomfortable spaces through this next few week journey BUT it really is all to bring you to a MUCH higher level of manifestation for the next several months! So be stoked for that!  You are in a full on shedding mode, so you are clearly seeing what needs to go and what and WHOM needs to leave your life, but the shedding feels very empowering and not all that difficult.  This is kind of like when you first want to lose weight and how the first pounds are so easy to lose!! This energy is not about the last 10 you want to lose that take so much effort!!  What is leaving now has you saying “good riddance” as you are READY.  You are sort of blossoming too from each thing that leaves you and this is what is inspiring you to keep up with this. You are getting instant rewards for all that you let go of AND  many of these things are psychological! So it may be that you aren’t beating yourself up so much! Or, it may be that you are having a new perspective of death and transformation and releasing the burden of feeling like you LOSE when things are lost. You are becoming more grounded and solid and ON PURPOSE and trusting of what this life is all about. You feel like you are becoming a BEACON and that your new and bright light will be shining for others to see in things that you do that are with your website or publications or book writing? I say that because you are moving into getting much more serious about your souls purpose. Refine your connections with others and with deciding who you allow into your space.

LEO :: Ohhh. This one feels very wonderful and divinely magical OR quite confusing and painful and UUUUGGGHHH.  I got BOTH feelings when I looked at the symbols of your chart! I think what matters most is the balance of what your Sun, Moon and Rising Signs have to say and this is like the tipping point reading!  But for sure you are either feeling very uncomfortable, insecure, unsure, unstable and with relationships and facing the dark and hidden matters of your life OR you are feeling on fire, inspired, ready to go, ready to COLLABORATE, ready to come together, ready to mate, ready to get it on!  So this is a very unusual reading in my body!  Normally they are clearly to one direction of the other but yours is all gray and covering all possibilities from a total nightmare to bliss beyond belief.  Oh I sure do home the majority are in the bliss because the nightmare feels full of heavy energy that is focused on the past and on the “mistakes” of the past. Just know though love, that from my own experience, it ALL was perfect and it ALL happened just as it was supposed to. I also have to say that YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW THIS STORY ENDS YET… so don’t give up on a dream but don’t put energy into what you could have done differently because it is in the past now and you can ONLY more forward and to do things right from this point on.  REACH OUT. You ARE being asked to make the peace, share your love, come together, ask for forgiveness, apologize to those you have let down. YOUR WORDS are what can bring balance into others lives and into situations that feel so out of control. 

VIRGO ::  What is going on with your peoples? Are they driving you crazy?  I feel there has been a space of confusion and not really being able to grasp what is going on and what this means and what the heck to even do about it!   Honestly you are taking the best path if you can just sit back and trust that the truth will be revealed at the correct time and that when you are to make a decision, the opportunity will be clear to do so. This can feel like you are driving down the highway and you can feel that your exit should be coming soon and you know a change is coming soon but it is not here yet, so you don’t know what it looks like.  Just calm your mind, love and know that when you need to decide on something, it will be RIGHT in front of your face. You are actually going into a total and brand new restructuring space, so there is going to be a clearing from the ground up and what gets rebuilt over the next few years is sure to be a surprise that you cannot even imagine in that moment. That is what you are feeling, but it is still foggy and you cant make out how this will unfold. So, just trust this and let it go. Yes, change is coming, but the shape and form depends on how you use your words to interpret this! And that is why I say, just trust life. Just trust the organic unfoldment of things. And just trust that you will make the best decision for YOU when it is time to decide something.  You are being asked to go back and refine things with your business or with things that relate to work. You may also want to go back and get that body moving at the gym to help you release some of the mass confusions in your mind. 

LIBRA :: Your mind is where the attention needs to be! You are possibly going to go through a readjustment that can bring a sort of FLOWERING or blossoming with your creative dreams and it comes from taking a realistic approach to what you have learned along the way and THEN applying these new touches that will take things to much higher levels. You will also look more calmly on your past and feel grateful for the experience they provided you!   I see you greatly appraising your past but then turning around and RUNNING into a bright new and abundant future!  If you haven’t turned around yet, take your time looking back, but when you are done, turn and RUN.  You will be using the next few weeks to refine your creative ideas and will be coming up with SO many new things that you couldn’t even see if not for the path you walked and when they come to you it will be like WOO HOO through your body! I see you FIRED UP and excited for some new things to come.  And seriously you are not going to believe how much your who life outlook will change, just by YOU seeing it in a new way and using different words in your head to interpret them. “That wasn’t so bad after all” and “WOW, if not for THAT, I wouldn’t be here now doing THIS!”  And the most exciting thing is that you will feel so creatively inspired when you do make this shift!!! 

SCORPIO :: This is some healing energy that is bringing a rebirth to things that are relating to your basic foundation in life. And yes, this for sure can be your home but it also can be with the first layer of YOU and how that influences everything that builds upon it. You are recognizing how some of the basic foundations of YOU are needing a clearing and a healing and a new perspective to them.  This feels like a liberation time where you just fully surrender to all that is and say HEY I TRUST THIS.  It is changing something that was brittle and not really healthy and turning it into something pliable and bendable, which then will allow you to become someone who goes with the flow in life.  This is good news, love! So look down below and check out where you have cracks in your system and go into them and apply a less rigid perspective to what you are seeing. Do not see things as broken or permanently damaged, and instead open to a viewing that says THIS IS PERFECT. Also understand that it is our cracks that draw our attention in and without them we would not even notice things. We now just need to interpret them as interesting things, instead of negative things.  You will be able to heal things in your outer world circumstances THROUGH facing what needs to be made peace with from your childhood times and the foundation of your life. Put some love down below so that the next few months start to grow new beautiful blossoming flowers for you.  Work that soil and get things in order around the homestead.

SAGITTARIUS ::  This can feel like a fresh start with wanting to rework a project where you are joining with others to contribute together to create more powerful results. This may also be that you are wanting to create something that benefits others in some way.  You may be wanting to provide services that help others to live their dreams or to take off burdens so that they can forward their dreams out into the world.  One thing that is so happening in the world is that we are realizing that we all wear too many hats and try to do too many things at once. So what you have to offer is something that can take the burden off of someone else and you are being called to come forward and say HEY I CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS. This also makes me think of website design, or editing services or something that deals with details and the clarification process. This energy can also have you feeling inspired to write or create art and to share something that you know so very well.  Creativity is highlighted with this and you are being asked to dream of further growth even if you have years to go before this dream can manifest. Personally, you are more in a creative creation space that won’t manifest for some time, BUT you do have skills that can benefit others who ARE in the blossoming manifesting space. And you do know that it is good to join with others who are doing things you dream of doing right? 

CAPRICORN :: Oh loves, this is great news! It is time to OWN how wonderful you are and how lucky you are to be the Capricorn! The Goats rock.  To be a Goat is such an honor, although one that does not have an easy road in life. What people do not realize is that it is the END of our stories that matter. It is when we reach the summit that we look down and are filled with joy at how far we have come. And most other signs do not climb the same treacherous mountain that the Capricorn climbs. So they are down at base camp awaiting your return and will congratulate you on the great feat you accomplished, but they will not know that feeling of reaching the summit and what it does to people. Yes they are safe and secure and roasting marshmallows down at base camp, but when the story is over, YOUR journey is what packs the powerful punch. So do know that you are warned that you MUST take this perspective and realize that you are ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES chosen to embody the Capricorn vibration!  You are also being asked to refine creative projects you are working on and to refine the valuable gifts you are offering to the world.

AQUARIUS :: This is officially your reboot session, where you get to start fresh and fully come out into the world more empowered than you have felt in some time. You have been through the ringer and have leapt over the hurdles and have done the job needed to NOW come forward doing something that feels like it is taking a risk and doing something that you wouldn’t have considered before. This feels fresh and brand new, but it also feels like something you have always wanted to do, but something that you held back for fears of what others would think of you.  This feels like a fully functioning belief that YOU are in the drivers seat and that that is really all that matters. This feels ballsy and forward minded and take it or leave it. You are being encouraged to put those blinders on and move forward on whatever is in your heart RIGHT NOW. Those thoughts; go forward with them. That person; go forward with them. That job offer; go forward with it. That creative idea; go forward with it. What is birthing and coming forward in your life and in your thoughts is happening for a very good reason! You are being asked to refine what you show to the world, so do be aware that you may need to upgrade your appearance in some way to match the position or level you are going up in life. This may mean you really need to start using that gym membership you are paying for.

PISCES :: Loves, this is your time to enter the Moon Lodge, the retreat, the pulled back analyzing state in order to map out the next steps of your dream.  You are ready to REALLY showcase the power of the Pisces, and very soon there will be the unveiling, but right now you need to retreat in order to find that reboot that assists you in truly being able to handle the front and center life that is heading your way at lightning speed. You have NO REASON to fear the retreat or the pulled back because you are someone who is getting very near to the front of the line, and when that happens IT IS ON. You will be seen, you will be sought after, you will be in high demand. So use this energy to take a rest and to envision the way you would like this MOST MAGICAL FOR ALL MERMAIDS 2015 to unfold.  You are only being asked to dream of things, and to see how you would like to double or triple the monetary position you are at right now. And for real, it is all possible for you this year and for several more to come in fact! At this time focus on refining your connect to spirit, or your faith in life or your belief that ALL is unfolding JUST as it should. You need to reconnect with your guides because you may have experienced a disconnect of the phone line and are listening to static when you could be listening to guidance. There is also a NEW PATH forming when you can retreat and hear of which new steps to take.  There are changes that need to be made and there are ways to do what you are doing in a better way so that your impact can be larger. BUT, it comes through the silence and NOT through the busy-busy clutter…

13 MOONS READING FOR 2015

Only a couple of days until 2015 is upon us! I always like to do a Tarot or oracle reading for the year ahead. I like to go by the different Moon energies of each month.

Each moon cycle has a different energy and magic unto itself. There are so many names for the different Full moons across different cultures and regions. These are the names I resonate with, but you can always change them to your own. This reading embodies each of your full moons for the next 12 cycles. This spread can be done at the end of the year or anytime you want to look ahead.

Before your reading, focus on your intentions for 2015, or your Word of the year. When you are ready, begin!

  1. The essence of your year
  2. Wolf Moon (Jan-Feb): awakening; envisioning; beginning and conceiving; rest; protection; Imbolc
  3. Sage Moon (Feb-Mar): rising energy; purification; new growth; honoring and forgiving yourself; self-love; accepting responsibility; planning for the future
  4. Seed Moon (Mar-Apr): burst of new energy; growing, exploring, learning; inner child work; new beginnings; balance of light and dark; Ostara: Spring Equinox
  5. Planting Moon (Apr-May): energy into creating and producing; change; self-reliance; tempering emotional flare-ups; taking advantage of opportunities; Beltane
  6. Flower Moon (May-Jun): creation; love; intuition; connection with the Divine; connection with nature; sexuality; sensuality
  7. Honey Moon (Jun-July): contentment; Litha: Summer Solstice; time of light; decision making; strengthen and reward positive qualities of oneself
  8. Blessings Moon (July-Aug): peak of summer; relaxed energy; preparing;  dream-work; Lughnasadh
  9. Corn Moon (Aug-Sept): gathering; gratitude; health and wellness; friendships; bounty; motherhood
  10. Harvest Moon (Sept-Oct): rest after labor; Mabon: Autumn Equinox; balance of light and dark; organize; clean out mental, physical, emotional, spiritual clutter
  11. Blood Moon (Oct-Nov): inner cleanse; purifying your spirit; honoring the cycles of life, death, rebirth; karma and reincarnation, connection to spiritual realm is thin; Samhain
  12. Dark Moon (Nov-Dec): honoring our ancestors; releasing the past; transformation; gratitude; reflecting on the lessons of the past year; shadow work
  13. Cold Moon (Dec-Jan): hibernation; rebirth of the light; darkness; connecting with loved ones; Yule: Winter Solstice; darkness; turning within; shadow work

If you are using Tarot cards, remember:

  • Major Arcana cards tend to have a deeper impact in your life and soul purpose. They can represent major life lessons and themes. If the Minor Arcana shows up, it affects the phase you are currently in and the daily energy shifts you are experiencing at the moment.
  • Reversed cards: If a card shows up upside down it could indicate there energy is blocked or it has not come to pass yet. It could be negative, it could be a warning - keep in mind the context of the reading and the other cards.

This is a little snippet from my e-course Tarot Journey, apart of my Certified Metaphysical Program! I hope it brings you insight for your year ahead! May is be bright and aligned with your soul!

NEW YEAR MOON REFLECTION

This time of year I always find myself slowing down, contemplating the past, and feeling flutters of what's to come.

For the past couple of years I have let the different phases of the moon guide my reflections and plans for the New year. So I wanted to share a printable version for my reflection journey to release 2014 and welcome in 2015!

May your New Year be bright as you walk your path!
