In this episode I share how you can cut ties with people on an energetic level. Each day we connect energetic ties to people and sometimes these ties are good and sometimes they are not so good. When we cut the energetic cord with events that have caused of pain and suffering it allows us to move on from the event and disconnect.
How do we open our heart chakra when we live in a society that is constantly telling us that we should be self sufficent? We live in a time when connection is looked at as a weekness. As humans we struggle with how to love ourselves much less have a healthy connection with others. In this podcast, I will share week 1 the heart chakra, from my book Light It Up. We will discuss how we can start loving ourselves and opening our heart chakra.
If you have been struggling with following your souls calling this is the episode for you. So many people are struggling with following their souls calling right now because they are worried they aren't ready or they see people who are doing similar work but don't have good intentions. This episode covers all of that and I share my perspective on the guru or the teacher who people put on a pedistal.
In this episode we discuss week 3 of the solar plexus chakra from my book Light It Up. This week we will talk about how to recognize your intuition and start to build a relationship with it. We will also discuss how creativity helps to open the solar plexus chakra.
In this episode, we dive into week 1 of the solar plexus chakra from my book Light it Up. The solar plexus chakra is the chakra that gives us motivation and helps us realize our dreams. When we have energy in this area we are able to follow through on our goals and live happy fulfilled lives. This week we are going to work on meditating daily to help open up this chakra. This simple daily practice will help move energy to this area. I will also discuss a movement exercise and a journal activity to help wake up the solar plexus chakra.

In this episode, I get very candid about my own struggle with depression. Depression is a disease that millions of people deal with every day yet we still have a lot of shame and stigma behind it. This is something I have dealt with my whole entire life. In this episode, I wanted to share my own experience so other people know they are not alone in this struggle. I also share my own techniques for working with depression and anxiety.
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.
In this episode, I share week 3 of my book Light It Up. In the 3rd week of the sacral chakra, I discuss sensual touch and why it is so important in healing the sacral chakra. I will talk about how we can start to explore our own bodies and start to notice how they are physical, emotional, and energetically feeling. I get really honest and real in this episode. Also the assignment for this week is a good one so be sure to go listen!
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.
