The Path to Happiness Isn’t Where I Expected It To Be -Mitch

 

Oh, hey there. It’s been a while. I’ve been out of sorts. I had a couple more medication changes that fucked me up quite a bit in the past several months, and I kind of hit a wall in my career, personal development, and my relationship, and I certainly didn’t give myself time to grieve the loss of my dog properly. I was exhausted, depressed, and totally unmotivated. I gave zero shits for way too long, and now I’m trying to find my path back to the person I want to be; the best version of myself. I’ve found, though, that I spent way too much time and energy trying to make myself want things that were no longer what was best for me. I was trying so hard to convince myself that my goals should be the same as they were in the past that I didn’t take time to evaluate if those were still things I wanted. I went down a rabbit hole only to finally realize that if I’d achieved those goals, I wouldn’t be happy anyway. I needed to acknowledge that goals change as we do, because it’s tough to let go of things, and that’s totally OK.

It’s hard for me to blog here when I’m not feeling myself, honestly. Our mission is to help women live their best lives, and I was certainly not living mine. Nowhere close. I guess I was practicing self care, if self care looks like eating cookie dough out of a tub. (I mean, I think it CAN look like that, once in a great while, but let’s be honest. Doing it fairly regularly isn’t self care. It’s self harm.) Who the hell was I to help guide anyone else? I was a hot mess. What I guess I really lost sight of, though, is that I’m a woman, and if we’re trying to help women live their best lives, why was I uncomfortable starting with myself? I’m pretty sure there are plenty of people out there going through the same things I am, or who could learn from my journey.

Part of it is that it’s really hard to be totally raw and honest online. The Pinterest/Instagram/Blogosphere corner of the internet is full of people with photoshopped and glossed over lives. I don’t blame anyone for wanting to put their best foot forward, especially in a cruel world full of strangers who sometimes want to make themselves feel better by taking other people down. I find that women, especially, fall into this pattern of behavior. When you’re miserable and things aren’t going your way, it’s a hell of a lot easier to lash out and judge other people than to turn the mirror on ourselves. I know I’ve been guilty of that toxic practice. The nickname Mitch the Bitch didn’t come from thin air. I wear the label “Bitch” proudly when I use my skills to stand up for myself and for people and ideals I love. I’m not so proud if I use it to personally attack people. It doesn’t make me better, it doesn’t make them better, and it doesn’t make the world a better place.

It’s equally as bad when I use my elevated skills of verbal decimation on myself, whether I say it out loud, or I say it inside my head. I’m always up for a good self deprecating joke, honestly, and that will probably never change, but I need to be a lot kinder to myself when I stumble. I need to be a lot more honest with myself, as well. A character trait I’m not terribly fond of is my all or nothing, zero to sixty in ten seconds personality. It’s great to ramp myself up and throw myself into something I care about or to reach towards a goal, but it’s a train wreck when I don’t allow myself room for moderation or failure.

Be real; who else does this? We say, “I stayed on my diet for three days then I ate some fries, so I’ll start again Monday,” or, “I really wanted to start blogging again, and I wrote a couple I’m pretty happy with, but then I ran out of time and motivation and now I look stupid because who the hell wants to follow me?”

The answer to failure shouldn’t be, “Fuck it!” if it’s something you really want. If it’s something that you think will make you really happy, start again today. Commit again right now, and if you stumble, start again right away. Don’t give up, but forgive yourself if you don’t succeed and follow the path that you thought would lead you to your goal. My goal is pretty simple. I want to be healthy and happy. I want to be the best version of myself and I want to help other women do the same. For me, that’s going to require nothing but pure honesty, self love and acceptance, and accountability. I’m going to be honest with myself and right here on this blog. I’m going to love myself to identify self destructive behavior, take some time to analyze why I did it, and find a better way to reach my goals when I start again. I’ve found that what we sometimes think will make us happy isn’t really what we originally think it is. Sometimes, we get so caught up in the minutia of what we are trying to do that we don’t take time along the way to reevaluate and make sure that the place we’re going is still the destination we want to reach.

I can’t say “here I go again” without a Whitesnake reference. My hair band loving heart won’t let me do it.

So here I go again, but not on my own. I have AK and my family, and other amazing, strong friends and mentors to love me and guide me, and maybe I have you. You have me if you need me. Reach out. I don’t care who you are, or where you are in your process. You don’t have to be spiritually awakened, because I know I’m not there yet. You don’t have to know exactly what you want or how the hell to get there, but if you’re reaching for something and you’re not content, hit me up. I’m actually a lot better at advice for other people than I am for myself. Even if I can’t help, I will almost always say something ridiculous and make you laugh and see things from a different perspective.

When we started this blog, I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do here, of what my role should be, and really, what I thought I wanted and what I thought would make me happy. Some of that is still right, and some of that has changed, but I promise, it’s OK to figure it out as you go along. Don’t stay committed to things that don’t serve you. Seriously, knock it off. If you made a goal to run a marathon but you keep injuring yourself, that might not be the right goal for you. There are other ways to get fit and strong. I’m not saying to divorce your husband or quit your job right now, especially if you love them and see a way forward and a future with them that could be fulfilling. I am saying that the way forward might look different than you thought it would, and you need to be open to that.

I have a lot more to say. I want to talk about spirituality and the divine feminine, and  I started this blog to talk about gratitude. I’m going to write about both soon, but this is what came out right now and I’m not second guessing it. This needed to come out for a reason, so here it is. You’ll see the good, the bad, the ugly, and the utterly ridiculous here, so strap in for the ride.

Love, light, forgiveness, and an appropriate amount of cookie dough,

-Selfish Mitch

Some Random Chakra Shit to Share

Hey all, I hope this blog finds you well and moving smoothly through these intense energies.  I had a great few days and felt I was rolling through Lion’s Gate (which ends today) then, the Ascension Flu (yes, there is such a thing).  Body aches, hot/cold, nausea, you know the drill…only this is not viral related…it is triggered by ascension so the body can purge to be able to hold high vibrational energy on the daily.  It’s fucking crazy, but true…I am merging my high vibrational light into this 3D reality…and I know I”m going through it now to guide others when they’re time comes.  Whether anyone likes it, or not, it’s coming…the mass raising of human consciousness.  Learning the chakra system, mediating, getting tarot readings, reiki, using crystals, grounding…all this shit I write about will become, for most, daily spiritual practices.  They will become essential to functioning in a 4D reality.

So, there are a few last random things I’d like to share about the chakras.  Chakra work doesn’t just have to happen when meditating, it aligns in yoga, food you eat, clothes you wear, using crystals/stones that align can work amazing magic.  I am not all about recreating the damn wheel, so I’ll attach a shit ton of links and post info on the FB page (Oh My Goddess) and am planning on sharing my practices and tools I use to show my self love and stay aligned with the Divine.  Anyways, the colors of the chakras are the key to figuring out what to eat, clothing and crystals.  You can use colored candles, incense, aromatherapy, essential oils…I think you get the idea.

My daily yoga flow covers all of the chakras and it is fucking powerful shit, you guys.  I have had days when certain poses open the chakra and I am overcome with releasing.  I have a blog planned, dedicated solely to my experiences, love of yoga.  Of course I do, I have a fucking ton of blogs to put out, lol.  Anyways, yoga is all about aligning mind, body and spirit, it is as much a spiritual practice, as a form of exercise.  You can use yoga poses to work on physical symptoms associated with each chakra, as well as, internal releasing.  I can think of one time specifically that I was in a child pose and out of nowhere I was sobbing, so fucking hard, aching, heart breaking heavy sobs…I had no idea where it came from, still don’t, but it clearly need to be released and I let it.  Child Pose is associated with the throat chakra, knowing this leads me to believe it was something abut not speaking my truth, this was a few months ago and I was still feeling pretty confused about my new path.  Lately, it’s been my lower chakras.

In November 2016, I fell and fucked my ankle up…bad, the surgeon said it would have been better if I broke it.  It was at the end of my Dark Night of the Soul (another day, lol), part of spiritual awakening, and I now know it was the physical manifestation of being completely broken on the inside.  I was spiritually, mentally, financially,emotionally and now physically broke as fuck.  After months of pills, rescheduled appointments and giving up on physical therapy, I gave up on healing my ankle, did the best I could (totally overcompensating on the other ankle, of course) and began focusing on healing my shit on the inside.  June 2017, I began my daily mediation practice and within days felt guided to start yoga.  Long story short for now, chakras are the focus here…starting yoga began my journey of healing my physical body.  Lately, many aches are from this old ass injury and I am totally realigning my physical body. A client of mine is a yoga instructor and she gave me the best tip:  breathe breath into outer ankle to inner ankle, on the exhale imagine all four corners of your foot stable on the ground…holy shit, the amount of healing changing how I balance my weight through my ankles & feet has been off the charts, but not going to lie…fucking painful, my physical body is deep in discomfort.  Although , it kinda feels good, knowing it’s bringing something better…an aligned, bad ass body for this soon to be 43 year old is worth some pain and discomfort. All of this happens to align to my root and sacral chakra…poses I do for this are Mountain Pose (root, also great for grounding) and the painfully exquisite Pigeon Pose (sacral, also great for hip opening).  I’ve cried releasing in the Pigeon Pose, as well…I’m a crier, y’all…good, bad, it doesn’t fucking matter…I’m a heart on my sleeve goddess and I embrace it.

A few last random thoughts on the chakras:  I may have not mentioned the most commonly blocked chakras for men are the upper chakras (throat, 3rd eye and Crown), opposite in feminines (big fucking shocker there).

Pangs, pains, aches and twitches in your physical body are usually your chakras communicating with you.  The area will align to the chakra…headaches, 3rd Eye and/or Crown…most people just ignore these subtle ways our spirit and body communicate with our mind.  Sadly, programming has left most completely unaware of this.  Hopefully, we will begin teaching chakras in schools, as they should be taught at a young age…they would be if I had my own school.

I think that’s about all I got in me for the chakra series.  I hope it’s been informational and helpful.  Please reach out if you have any questions, or need guidance.  Not sure what’s coming  next, but that pretty much sums up my whole fucking life.  Have an amazing day, loves!

Peace Love & Light to You All

P.S.  I’ll check in with my chakra test results next week.

 

 

Up for a Chakra Challenge?

Hey all, I was guided to a website the other day (eclecticenergies.com) and found a chakra test.  I wanted to get to this yesterday to start the month of August (my birth month…whoop, whoop), but didn’t have the energy.  We are in the Lion’s Gate portal (Aug. 8th) leading to a partial solar eclipse on the 11th…August is set to bring MASSIVE changes for folks, and I have definitely been feeling the energies pushing to close cycles and allow space for change.  Even when I am feeling fully aligned and high energy, I can be taken over with the energies of others (especially my Twin), even the whole damn human collective.  It is one of the toughest assignments for first wave Twin Flames, as we are the leaders in grounding 5D energy into Gaia.  So, I was curious how this chakra test worked and what info it would give me.  My results are posted below..

Nothing here really shocked me, it pretty much aligns to my awareness of self and my chakras.  I do wish they would explain the percent ranges on the site, but I feel you ideally want all chakras around 50%.  Although, fuck…I was just happy they were all open.  I have been doing a lot of work on my base chakras (root, sacral & solar plexus), as well as, heart chakra openings…clearly, I can lay off the heart chakra work.  Although, my problem there isn’t about giving, as much as, learning how to soften and be open to receiving.  Typical for the givers of the world, especially Divine feminines.  The over-active chakras were of no surprise to me…I have always been a head in the clouds kind of girl…this is extremely common with Earth Angels, as we have a hard time being grounded in the physical reality.  One big recent awareness of self that has been illuminate, is my propensity to be naive, to trust all and not call it as it is…see people for who they really are, knowing who they could be, but only if they so choose.  Knowing my chakras has helped me identify and release all the shit I used to carry.

If anyone out there is interested in taking the test, sharing the results and talking chakra guidance, comment or send us an email at ohmmygoddess@gmail.com…would love to support anyone who is interested.  I will do my work with my overactive and base chakras and check in, maybe weekly? Most definitely on the 31st of August (My bday).  The last chakra post will be out soon, just some last random info I feel guided to share.  Have a magical day!!
Peace Love and Light

Speak Your Truth…But Don’t Forget to Listen

FUUUUUUCK, let me clear my throat…actually, saying Fuck is a great way to clear your Throat Chakra.  This turquoise chakra is located at the center of your throat and controls your ability to be confident, speak clearly and the hardest listen to others’ truths, with no judgement.  Looking back, I’ve gone back and forth between being balanced, overactive and blocked…that’s me a fucking walking contradiction.  ‘Tis a real thing for Empaths, as we absorb the energy around us when we are not in balance.  A balanced Empath knows how to control the energy, put out rather than let in…it’s pretty fucking cool how powerful we all are once we understand that we are energetic beings.  Writing this blog is one way I keep a balanced throat chakra, as all forms of communication flow through this chakra.

As always, I’m going to keep it real…I have absolutely had an overactive throat chakra throughout different times in my life.  How do you know if this chakra is overactive, AK?  Well, let me tell you…opinionated, loud, critical, gossipy, talks over others, uses harsh words…sound familiar to you?  It certainly pertains to me.  Ugh, hard to accept that I absolutely acted in these ways…kind of makes me cringe.  Yet, I can’t get mad at myself, there were so many things I didn’t know and programming is a motherfucker.  So, I have accepted that part of me and work everyday to be better, balanced, always coming from a place of pure love.  Feminines have been programmed to behave this way, this shit is everywhere…the belief that we must compete against each other, put each other down to build ourselves up is disgusting and it is up to us to stop it.

Not only have I acted out in these ways, but being the child of a narcissist, harsh words, judgments and criticism are all things I experienced (and still do) on the daily.  One of the hardest boundaries I’ve had to set is not talking to my mother.  Every time I talk to her I am put down, dismissed and made to feel inadequate.  It fucking sucks, y’all…to be so aware of what’s happening (she’s projecting her own insecurities and fears onto me) and accept that that’s just the way it’s going to be.  This is my truth…I will never have the mother I so desperately wanted.  How do I transmute this pain from a place of pure love?  I am grateful that she taught me how not to be a mother.  As a mother, I am the exact opposite and am at peace knowing this.  Listen, I love my mother, I love everyone, but that doesn’t mean I have to put up with verbal and emotional abuse, I choose to set boundaries that protect my energy, as fucking hard as it can be.
Then there’s the flip side, the blocked Throat Chakra.  Yup, been there, too…this one more recently because for me, I have always blocked my truth from others.  When you know at a young age that you are different, that you scare people and know things that others don’t understand, you tend to become a people-pleaser to just make everyone happy.  This happens to more children than you think, as all children are psychic and more aware of the non-physical.  It is a common trait among children and adults of Narcissist abuse.  I’ll write a more in depth blog about that soon.  So, when one has a blocked throat chakra, they are unable to express themselves, misunderstood, secretive and not very good a listening.  Listening is a fucking BIG one for me.  I read people at a soul level, when they talk I don’t always listen to their words because I am feeling and receiving information about them on an energetic level, through my psychic abilities.  It’s a tough one, folks and one I work on daily.  I’ve also come to the awareness that most people never really listen to each other.  Most seem to listen just to reply, in fact they have a reply before you even finish what the fuck you were saying.  Again, I’m guilty of this, but awareness of the problem is the way to better yourself.  I believe it is hard for humans, because of programming, to listen to ourselves, as well…our true selves, our higher selves, our souls.  The truth can be fucking brutal and we have been conditioned to blame and play victim instead of taking responsibility, be accountable for our own shit.

When the 5th chakra is overactive/blocked, you may physically feel: a sore, scratchy throat, stiff neck, swollen glands, tooth/gum problems and hearing problems. Ears and throat are most definitely connected.  Also, this chakra is usually blocked because of experiences (such as my own) from childhood moments/experiences.  I’ve done a shit ton of childhood regressions, through Tarot and meditation, that have helped me heal from those experiences and in turn, heal my Throat Chakra.  Keeping it real, it was fucking brutal work.  I’m telling you all, total truth, getting to place of self love is the hardest fucking thing to do…but, the reward of living a free, fulfilled life…no better gift you can give yourself.   Another thing about this chakra is what you think and say is your Karma and I have definitely paid some major Karmic debt for the shitty, judgmental, gossipy bullshit I put out there.  Whether this lifetime, or another, your Karma will have to be repaid.

Clearly, my Throat chakra is flowing today, but I will end here.  Recently, my channeling has taken a shift and I am being guided to act as a Divine Feminine Oracle, to inspire,  empower and guide all feminines to heal and love themselves…the journey is tough, but so are you, beautiful souls.  Please do not hesitate to reach out in any way…you are never alone and loved more than you know.

Peace Love and Light

Unleash Your Power

I have to tell you guys, each time I do one of these chakra blogs, I realize just how out of balance I used to be.  The yellow Solar Plexus chakra, located just above your belly button is all about your will and your power.  A balanced Solar Plexus is all about confidence, inspired, creative action and owning your personal power.  For me, and just about every feminine I know, power and confidence are a struggle.  A healthy Solar Plexus is all about courage and confidence, about doing the things you are afraid to do and living your life with integrity…I have to say I don’t see a lot of that going on these days.

I’ve said it before and I will continue to say it until change happens, feminines have been disempowered since the beginning of time.  Selfish Mitch and I were having this conversation today, as we are firm supporters of Feminine Empowerment.  Don’t get me wrong, masculine’s have their own confidence issues and balancing to do and I am all about Human Empowerment, but I’m going to focus on the feminine’s today.  I can honestly say I can recall few times that this chakra was in balance and it’s a fucking shame, because when feminines are in the power, full of confidence, inspiration  and creativity we are LIT AF!!  It’s where my focus as been, as of late, as I step out of my cocoon and follow my guidance on co-creating the life I dream of.

Procrastination, control freak, second guessing, feeling worthless are all shit I have dealt with for the majority of my life and signs of a blocked Solar Plexus chakra.  The only consistent time I can think of my Solar Plexus really in balance, is when I was teaching.  Man, when I was in my classroom with my kids I was on fucking fire.  Until, the last year of my career, when the reality of the education system and my role in indoctrinating children became crystal clear…but the education system and all our fucked up systems are a blog for another day.   I used to be a total control freak, my mother is, almost all of my girlfriends, it’s a fucking problem for feminines because we really feel powerless internally, we grab on to controlling everything we can externally.  I’m in a place of deep knowing that most things are out of our control.  Everything and I mean EVERY FUCKING THING is Divinely orchestrated, there are no random events, no coincidences in life.  I know it’s hard to accept when we’ve been conditioned to believe that we can control everything, but I’m here to tell you…you can’t.  What can you control?  YOU, that ‘s it, YOU.  Your thoughts, your emotions and your actions…so simple…yet, humans makes it so fucking complicated…programming has fucked us all up.

Alright, being transparent, I have to own the fact that I have always been a procrastinator…always.  Well, not about things I was passionate about, just all the other shit lol…aren’t most of us?  Procrastination is a manifestation of feeling insecure, like your thoughts and feelings don’t really matter, second guessing your thoughts and emotions before acting, so you just don’t act.  You start playing the “What If” game, I hate that fucking game.  When something feels right, but looks wrong it’s right.  We are programmed to a seeing is believing perspective, which is total fucking lie (Thanks Patriarchy) and a blog I’m planning to go deeper into soon.  Typically, something will feel right, an idea for a project, or a life change in some way and it will feel inspiring and absolutely the right thing to do…then, you think What If…I fail, I end up broke, I lose a relationship with someone, on and on and on with motherfucking Ego.  The fears and insecurities creep in and you stop.  This blog, both YouTube channels and starting my own Tarot/Healing business were HUGE fucking risks, it was terrifying, but I did it. Then, I froze…people who know me are going to think I’m bat shit crazy and they did.  Most don’t talk to me anymore, I’m broke and I feel fucking amazing, POWERFUL and free.  When literally everything about your life is released, either by you, or the Universe, you realize what’s important and who you’re people are.  You gain clarity on who you are and why you’re here, but it doesn’t happen overnight.  Instant gratification is some other BS I’m planning a blog on.  This human experience is a journey, a process and sometimes painstakingly so…look at how nature works, through it’s cycles, going with the ebb & flow of those cycles.  Such is the human experience.  A few weeks ago it hit me that I was doing it…the same fucking shit, over the leap of faith I took.  These leaps we take aren’t easy and fear can quickly take over, if you aren’t aware of yourself.  Thanks to sweet baby Jesus, I figured it out, called myself out, had a good cry and snapped myself back out of it. Bogs being posted regularly, 2 videos up on 1 YouTube channel & 1 to come for this channel soon.  I’m hoping Selfish Mitch will agree to do a reading for you all, so you can see how I use Tarot and my gifts/abilities to help guide you on your journey of self transformation, the journey to self love.

So, what about an overactive Solar Plexus?  When it’s overactive you’ll see power hungry, domineering, critical, perfectionist behaviors.  I’m certain at least one name came to mind.  In the interest at feminine empowerment, this is interesting to me.  I feel feminines tend to exhibit these qualities a lot these days to overcompensate for the disempowerment we have experienced for fucking ever, literally since the beginning of time (remember the story of Lilith & Adam?).  Although I haven’t gotten into politics much yet, I will…spiritual anarchy will be shared here, at some point…I think of Hillary Clinton and how she didn’t win the election (she was never going to btw…the universe has it’s plans).  To me, it was clear that she was not the right feminine, she wasn’t feminine at all…I saw none of the amazing qualities that make feminines, feminine.  Grace, nurturing, compassion, kindness…the softness that is what it means to be feminine…the softness that has been taught is a weakness.

The feminine that is needed is balanced, not just in the Solar Plexus, but within all aspects of herself.  She is soft, yet strong.  Intuitive, yet logical.  Loving, yet firm in her boundaries.  This is the feminine that I intend to embody everyday and hope to inspire, guide and empower you to do the same, even the masculine’s who read this…we need you to balance your feminine energy, guys.  My beautiful divine sisters, these huge shifts are happening to us all…the rise of the matriarchy, the balance of masculine & feminine energy is happening whether we like it, or not.  It is Divinely guided as humanity is dire need of this change.  As within, so without…it starts with us healing ourselves, knowing ourselves at a soul level, loving ourselves unconditionally.  When we do this, it spreads to everyone around.  A balanced divine feminine is energy so powerful many don’t know what to do with it…it’s also very rare, so let’s fix this shit together.

Peace, love and light

P.S.  Solar Chakra affirmations 

PPS  If you are interested in a private reading, please hit me up here or at ohmmygoddess@gmail.com.

Let’s Start at the Root

I’m all about getting to the root of problems and as I learned about chakras it became very clear that this base chakra was seriously blocked.  These days I am constantly, fucking amazed at how everything, I mean EVERYTHING, is connected.  As within, so without has become the basis of my belief system…meaning whatever I feel and think internally, creates my external reality…Law of Attraction, guys.  Right now, I’m at a place where my Root chakra is definitely being worked on…releasing my last cycle, my last fear, my last fucking insecurity and it’s happening with Adam, as well.  Fucking crazy how Twins mirror each other.  All of this awakening and now ascension has me in childlike amazement…anyways, back to the root.

The Root chakra connects us to Gaia, or Mother Earth (whichever you prefer, you know my feelings on labels).  It grounds us and when it is in it’s perfect spinning place we feel safe, secure, centered and happy with life.  When it’s blocked…fearful, unsure and may experience financial instability.  Safety, stability…what does that look like?  It seems to me that for most it is repeating the same cycles, over and over, always knowing there’s more, but never having the balls to take the leap.  Everyone close to me does it, every damn day, me included…well, not anymore except this one last thing.  I’ve been guided for months now to start a YouTube channel to share messages with the Twin Flame and Lightworker collective and I have such a fear of coming out of the “Spiritual Closet” and the guidance I receive is sometimes just fucking overwhelming.  The channel is set up and ready to go, yet I find myself stuck, letting fear take over & I fucking hate it, drives me insane.  But, don’t we all do that…get some inspired idea, find a way not to follow it and then kick ourselves afterwards?  That, my loves, is Ego kicking in and blocking your Root chakra…tricking you into thinking quitting that job, dating that person, starting that project is a bad fucking idea.  We believe it and go on with our fine, yet unfulfilled lives, thinking this is what’s safe.

Women have a lot of blockages in the Root that goes back through generations, through centuries of Patriarchal bullshit, that has left us with ancient wounds.  It seems to me, ladies, that we all have been taught that safety and security comes from the men.  How in the world can we expect to feel safe and secure when we have to trust it from someone else…the same someone’s that abuse and disempower us, but yet we have been programmed to believe just that.  Just last week my parents told me hopefully I find a rich man to help me with my financial struggles…WTF??? Let me get this straight, my own parents don’t believe that I am capable of financial success on my own and to make it worse it is simply because I AM A WOMAN…sweet baby jesus, this shit has got to stop!! After getting off the phone and reflecting, it hit me…I had always believed that I needed 2 incomes, a man with a better paying job because I was raised that way…let’s just say, that belief system was released ASAP, get to steppin’ bitch.  That’s what motivated me to get the channel set up and started.  I was feeling great last Thursday, did the video on the FB page and was working on the set up on YouTube.

Chakras can be overactive, as well.  Overactive chakras manifest in the behaviors we are most used to seeing in each other…that damn Ego again.  An overactive Root chakra will manifest greed, materialistic, a lust for power and cynicism…sound like anyone you know?  A few people definitely came to mind, including my person…kind of makes me sick to my stomach to say that, but truth is truth.  Last fall, things were going pretty well with us, then I retired from my 15 year career as a teacher…talk about taking a leap of faith!  He said something in a text yesterday that took me back to me telling him I had left teaching and I realized that things between us had changed when I did that. I had threatened his sense of security and he began, once again, to pull away from me.  For me, leaving teaching was a no brainer, I knew it was time.  Never once, through 15 years of teaching, was I ever near financial security…which is what security means to most of us, is is not?  In the text, he told me he was talking to someone and she was a good woman and safe for him because of his career and lifestyle.  It was the word safe that triggered me making these connections.  Instantly, I knew safe for him meant repeating the same unfulfilling relationships with women who didn’t challenge this safe and secure worked he has worked so hard to create.  Women who are okay with emotional constipation, so he doesn’t have to deal with feeling deeply for anyone. Women he doesn’t love.  Breaks my fucking heart, but he has his lessons to learn and they are coming.  Me, I have to break through my own safe little cocoon I have built around myself during my awakening.  Now that it is over, it is time to spread these motherfucking wings.

Each time I do a meditation to remove chakra blockages, I say affirmations as I direct breath to each location.  The affirmations for the Root Chakra begin with  “I am…” and “I have…”.  Sometimes that’s all I say, ” I am, I have:.  Other times I fill in the blank.  “I am safe.  I have financial security.”  I think you get the idea.  Salt baths are another awesome way to clear blockages , as they release toxins, cleanse low vibrations and ground you to Gaia. As an Empath, I do grounding practices daily.  Mediations, yoga, baths and just going outside for 10 minutes can do the trick. The truth is, there is absolutely NOTHING external that can give you safety and security, because nothing is fixed.  Change is the only constant.  Through experience, I have learned the more you resist your gut, your intuition, the vibes…the worse it gets, until the universe makes you so fucking uncomfortable change is all you can do.  Yes, it is so fucking terrifying sometimes, but staying stuck in a place with people who are holding you back from living the life you dream of, the life you deserve is so much worse.  Off to video myself…

P.S.  A healthy Root Chakra is essential in manifestation…something I’l go more into soon.

WTF is a Chakra?

Greetings beautiful souls!  As promised (look at me go), I’m going to do a series on chakras.  I’ll talk today about what they hell they are and a little about each one.  Then, post a more in depth blog on 1 (or 2), at a time.  Chakra work is one of my favorite practices and I love working with clients on these beautiful little energy centers.  Opening and working with my chakras has been one of the most transformational practices…absolutely life changing and it goes hand in hand with meditation, yoga and all things spiritual, plus my specialty…healing.

So, what the fuck are they?  Chakras are energy centers located from the base of your spine (Root Chakra) to the top of your head (Crown Chakra).  Chakra’s are the control centers, for our balance in our emotional, physical, mental & spiritual well-being.  They tell us where fears and insecurities are holding us back from living our most fulfilled lives, our soul driven lives.  Working daily with these 7 (with humans evolving to higher consciousness, some now recognize 12, but I’ll focus only on 7, for now) powerful, energy cylinders have helped me heal and transform in ways I never fucking thought could happen.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows.  When you can identify the blockages, you then have to face those shadows…which, let’s be honest, most don’t want to do.  It’s much easier, safer to be on auto-pilot then putting the work into being healthy, healed & whole.  For me, there really hasn’t been an option, sure I have free will…but a spiritual awakening a fucking rug yanking experience and putting practices like the ones I’ve mentioned into your day make it far less painful.  But, like with all practice, it gets easier and easier.

The 7 Chakras (a very brief description):

1.  The Root Chakra This beautiful, red chakra is located at the base of your spine.  It influences safety, security & stability.  When blocked you may feel:  lower back pain, physically tired, depressed, angry, unable to sleep(insomnia) and/or self esteem issues.

2.  The Sacral Chakra:  This sexy (influences sexual desire), orange chakra is located just below your belly button.  It influences creativity, emotional identity, sexuality and happiness. When blocked you may feel:  pelvic pain, low sex drive, urinary/digestive problems, emotionally irritable and/or intimacy issues.

***Just a note:  These 2 chakras are typically where women have the most blockages…makes sense given our history of abuse and disempowerment.***

3.  The Solar Plexus Chakra:  The powerful, yellow chakra is located just above the belly button.  It influences your will, self confidence and ego. When blocked you may feel:  physical stomach pains, indigestion, arthritis, emotionally you may feel anxiety, depression related to low self esteem issues and/or fear of rejection.

4.  The Heart Chakra:  This important center chakra is green and I’m sure you’ve figured it out…located in the center of your chest.  It influences trust, love and compassion.  When blocked you may feel:  heart conditions, asthma, hopelessness, sadness, difficulties giving/receiving love and/or moodiness.

5.  The Throat Chakra:  This brilliant, turquoise chakra is located at the center of your throat.  It influences truthfulness, communication, self-knowledge/expression and intuition.  When blocked you may feel:  sore/dry, scratchy throat, thyroid dysfunctions, tooth/gum problems, hearing problems, indecision, lack of creativity and/or mood swings.

6. The Third Eye Chakra:  This intuitive, indigo chakra is located between your eyebrows, in the center of your forehead.  It influences intelligence, self-realization, imagination and inspiration.  When blocked you may feel:  headaches, sleep problems, nightmares, learning disabilities, lack of concentration, impaired judgement and/or confusion.

7.  The Crown Chakra:  vital, violet chakra is located at the top of your head.  It influences your spirituality, faith and connection to the Divine (Source, God, Spirit…whatever resonates with you).  When blocked you may feel:  physical exhaustion, sensitivity to light and sound, aimless, apathetic, lack of spiritual connection and/or materialistic.

So there’s the basics…but there’s so much more to tell you about each one.  I have had and cleared blockages in each and every one throughout the past year.  For feminines, the lower chakras (1-3) have the most blockages and I have definitely had to do the most healing there.  No fucking surprise that the opposite is true for masculine’s.

Chakra work has helped my transformation in such profound ways.  It has turned being an Empath from a curse to a blessing, teaching me the power I hold and how I read the energy of others. It has increased my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual awareness that still blow my fucking mind sometimes.  It has opened ALL of my psychic abilities to a place I never imagined I’d be and helps me understand the information I am receiving through these abilities.  I feel and can identify blockages in others…sometimes it’s so intense, especially with those I have a deep soul connection with.  They don’t even have to be near me and I can feel them.  I am now able to communicate telepathically with my Twin Flame and that shit is fucking crazy.

Chakra work is intense, but has the fucking power to help you transform into the Divine being you are meant to be…a motherfucking goddess (or god) living her most fulfilled life.  While reading this, if something resonates, or you feel twinges/pain in any of these areas….your picking up where blockages are.  Hit me up if you have questions, would like to do a chakra reading.  Selfish Mitch had graciously volunteered to do one on the YouTube channel for you all to see how it works…hopefully I’ll see her beautiful face soon so we can do just that.

Peace, Love and Light to Each and Every One of You
