Episode #36 Week 4 of Sacral Chakra

Episode #36 Week 4 of Sacral Chakra

In this episode, I cover the 4th and final week of the sacral chakra from my book "Light it Up". I discuss how we form boundaries early in life and how these boundaries may need to be evaluated later on in life. The journal prompt for this week will have you diving deep into your own boundaries. 

The physical exercise for this week is deadlifts. I explain why this exercise is a powerful tool in healing the sacral chakra and where you can find tips on how to do them correctly. 

I also cover 4 crystals you can use to heal the sacral chakra and how to work with them. I talk about creating elixirs and how to charge and clean them.

Episode # 32 Intro Astrology Natal Chart

Episode # 32 Intro Astrology Natal Chart

In this episode, I break down what an astrology natal birth chart is and how you can use it in your own life. Astrology can feel very overwhelming and I try and break everything down into simple terms that everyone can understand. I also share how you can use your natal chart to create your plan for 2019. 

Episode #29 Sacral Chakra Week 2

In this episode, I explore the second week of my book Light it Up! I take you on a journey a little deeper into the sacral chakra. I explain how the planets and zodiac have an effect on the sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune and the zodiacs Sagittarius and Pisces. Each having a yin/yang effect on the chakra. The sacral chakra is home to our emotions, creativity, and feminine energy. The planet Jupiter helps us to expand and grow. It is difficult to do this when our energy is blocked preventing us from growing. The planet Neptune rules illusions and creativity. It is easy to see why we are able to create illusions about ourselves so easily. When the sacral chakra is blocked we often have illusions about what we think we are or what we look like. We create barriers and walls that prevent us from growing creatively as well.

In this podcast, I explain that right now both Jupiter and Neptune are stationed in their ruling zodiacs of Sagittarius and Pisces. This means that 2019 is a great year to dig deep into the sacral chakra and heal the trauma that is there. This year is primed for creative expansion and healing. It is also a good time to explore your own natal birth chart and see what you are bringing into this life astrologically.

The activities for this week are to give yourself a massage. The activity of giving yourself a massage is a step towards getting comfortable in your own body. It allows you to start feeling your body and making yourself feel good. This can be uncomfortable at first but it’s an activity you will hopefully grow to love.

The journal assignment for this week is to journal about your emotions. As soon as you wake up in the morning note how you feel. Write down any strong emotions that come about during the day. Notice if you have control over your emotions or if you have trouble showing your emotions. You can even take this a step further and track your emotions with the moon cycle.

There will be a solar and lunar eclipse this month with I will be talking about later this week.
