CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “3 Ways To Cleanse Your Crown Chakra”

The well-known Crown Chakra, which sits at the top of our heads, is also called ‘Thousand Petal Lotus’ or Sahasrara, and it represents the most potent center of energy in our bodies. Also, it is our personal connecting or the life live to the Source energy.

So, when we have our Crown Chakra healthy and open, it will help us feel connected with something that is better and greater than ourselves, and it will also allow us to be guided by our Divine realms.

In fact, for the Chakra to be in alignment, the rest of the Chakras have to be full and healthy too. It seems that the other Charkas fuel the potential and energy of our Crown Chakra.

3 Ways Of Clearing Our Crown Chakra And Making It Healthy Once Again

 

First of all, we should work on our lower Chakras.

The Crown Chakra is one of the seven Chakras in our body. In order to be balanced and healthy, the rest of the Chakras also have to be balanced and healthy. We can do the following exercise for this purpose:

Over each of the Chakras, we should move our hand in the opposite direction of the hands of the clock than in the same direction, starting with our Root Chakra, working out the way to our Crown Chakra.

We should imagine how it cleanses away everything which blocks the chakra to use the counter clock movement. When we feel that energies are cleansed, we should shake off the hand and do some clockwise circles around the Chakra. With this, we will protect the Chakra.

We have to be guided by our intuition about the time we have to spend on every Chakra.

Creating a quartz grid.

For this, we need to have four pieces of clear quartz. Also, for some additional benefits, it is preferred to keep them out in the sunlight for 10 minutes prior to performing this.

We have to lay down, place one crystal on the top of our head right on the floor. Two of them should be placed next to our ears, while the fourth should be at the bottom of our feet.

First, we have to close the eyes and breathe deeply for ten times. We should imagine how the crystals form some energy and even how they cleanse everything unneeded away.

On the next inhale we take, we should imagine the energy pouring from the head to the feet. On the next exhale we make, we should imagine how the crystal which is near our feet collects negative energies. This should be repeated for about ten times.

Getting sunshine.

We can awaken and invigorate our Crown Chakra through the Sun’s energy. This means that spending some time outside under the Sun’s rays may be fast and also an easy way which can help us open our Crown Chakra.

Moreover, another excellent way we can utilize the energy of the Sun to clear the Chakra is if we consume foods which were placed out in sunlight. We can also work or wear crystals which were outside under the sunlight.

So, when we finally have our Crown Chakra balanced and healthy, we are going to feel excellent, being on the same line with our highest calling, or even connected to everything and with the Universe.

MATTHEW JOHN: “25 Ways To Get Grounded!”

As the energies streaming into our planet from the Sun and the Great Central Sun continue to intensify at a staggering rate, the importance of GROUNDING becomes more and more crucial. For those suffering from a seemingly endless stream of Ascension symptoms, grounding is an absolutely necessary practice to help your physical body and to increase your quality of life. Here are 25 easy ways to ground:

1. Spend time barefoot on the ground

This is by far the simplest AND most effective method. When your bare feet (or hands or any part of your body. are physically touching the Earth, you are directly electrically and vibrationally connected to the Earth and the Schumann Resonance that She continually vibrates. If you work from home or spend a lot of time on your laptop, set up your laptop outside on nice days and do your work with your bare feet touching the bare ground. You may or may not notice the effects, but in the long run it will make a big difference.

2. Stay hydrated

Water comes from the Earth!! Adding a pinch pink Himalayan salt to your water is a great way to stay hydrated and give your body essential minerals.

3. Eat grounding foods

Meat and root vegetables are grounding. As are red fruits. But do yourself a favor and purchase organic, grass-fed meat and wild fish if you can afford it. Lean meats like bison, duck, deer and lamb are more likely to be grass fed. Grass-fed beef if it is from a reliable source. Wild fish, especially wild salmon! Root vegetables: sweet potatoes, yucca, daikon, carrots, turnips, beets. Red fruits: watermelon, strawberries. Be sure to incorporate some red into your diet each day!

4. Sunlight!

Most Americans and Canadians are Vitamin D-deficient, especially those living in Northern climates. I recommend getting at least 20 minutes of direct sunlight exposure 3-5x per week to maintain healthy Vitamin D levels and also to ground and re-charge. Direct sunlight naturally recharges your chakras and detoxes your entire physical and energy body. Expose as much of your skin as possible to the sun–yes, if you live out in the country and have no neighbors, bare it all!!! If you live in the South or West where it is very hot, you certainly need to get your sunlight before 10 a.m. or after 5 p.m. in the summertime. In the wintertime middle of the day is best as that way you will be getting both UV-A and UV-B rays! If you live in the North, in the middle of the day is the best year round if it’s not too hot!!

5. Hugging trees

Trees love to be hugged and I love hugging trees!!! The trees are our friends and want to connect with us!!! It is extremely grounding to hug trees. Wrap your arms around a tree for 30 seconds with your bare feet on the ground and you will feel different afterward!

6. Breathing

Perhaps the simplest but most important. If you have a hectic schedule, please do yourself a favor and practice taking ‘breathing breaks’, where several times a day you stop whatever you’re doing to just focus on your breath for 30 seconds. Put your hand over your abdomen and just breathe in and out slowly. All meditative practices which focus on the breath are very grounding.

7. Creating a grounding cord

Visualize a cord of light about 6 inches in diamater starting at your root chakra for men or your sacral chakra for women, and running alllllll the way down and connecting with the center of the Earth (you can visualize the center of the Earth as either a great sun or a solid crystal core.. Focus on this grounding cord for a minute or so, and then declare that it shall remain in place until the next time you meditate upon it again. Make it a practice to put your grounding cord in place every morning after you rise and every night before you go to sleep. You can make your grounding cord literally any color. Experiment with which colors make you feel best. You’ll find that some days, you feel drawn to go with one color, and other days a different color. Go with that!!!

8. Focusing on your feet

Focusing on your feet while you walk or sit opens up your main foot chakras and is grounding. You can practice ‘becoming’ your feet–moving your consciousness down into your feet. I find this a great practice to do while walking in nature.

9. Nature

Spending time in nature is one of the fastest and most effective ways to ground. Allow Mother Nature to absorb any negative energy you’ve accumulated in your energy field. Allow the negative ions of the Earth to detoxify your physical body. Spending an hour in nature 3-5x a week will make dramatic differences in your health and well-being!!!

10. Salt baths

Taking a 20-minute soak in warm water with 2 cups or more of Epsom salt, pure sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, or rock salt is a terrific way to ground. Also, bathing in salt water cleanses your energy field of negative energy and attachments.

11. Showers

Running water contains negative ions, which is grounding and detoxifying. Taking a shower morning and night is not only hygienic, but grounding!!

12. Playing with animals and children

Playing with your pets and your children is very grounding. They are much closer to the ground than us adults!!!

13. Yoga, tai chi, and qi gong

These ancient practices bring you into alignment with the breath and the present moment. They are very grounding.

14. Conversing with others

Having conversations with others in-person is grounding because it brings us into the present moment. The sharing of laughter and love is grounding and healing.

15. Exercise and playing sports

Physical exercise is grounding, as it brings you in touch with your body and the present moment. Playing sports for fun is great as the Joy of playing and being present which others is very grounding.

16. Grounding crystals

Carrying and/or wearing grounding crystals is a great idea to help you with grounding. All black crystals such as hematite, black obsidian, black kyanite and jet are not only grounding but also protect your aura.

17. Grounding shoes

There are several websites out there which are selling handmade earthing sandals and shoes. Leather is conductive to the natural energies of the earth, while rubber is not.

18. Grounding mats and sheets

I have not tried these yet but you can purchase grounding sheets and mats online, or you can make your own (there are YouTube videos showing how to do it and it’s pretty simple).

19. Drumming and playing instruments

Making music is grounding, as it brings you into the present moment of the music you are co-creating. Making music with others is even better!

20. Being creative

What do you love to do that lets those creative juices in you flow? Writing? Drawing? Painting? Singing? Practicing that creative passion brings you into Alignment with the Present moment and Joy and is very grounding!!

21. Grounding tones

You can search on YouTube for the Schumann’s resonance. There are several videos which have the Schumann resonance in binaural beats or tones. My favorite one is a video by Sapien Med, which you can find here.

22. Singing

Singing joyfully not only grounds you into the present moment, it clears out your throat chakra and balances your thyroid!!

23. Practicing presence

When you are present, you are grounded. You can make any activity grounding if you can focus on the activity itself, and slow down. A great way to practice this is every time you eat. To slow down, and focus on chewing the food. Not only is this grounding, but it drastically enhances your digestive processes and allows drastically more vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed by your body!!!

24. Running energy downwards

Visualize energy running down from above your head, through your crown, down your spine, and into the Earth, either through your feet or your grounding cord. You can do this while you are sitting, lying down, or even walking. You can look up the “Pushing Down Exercise” by Dr. L Wilson or click here to read more about the benefits of running energy down. His instructions are to run energy from your head down to your feet for 30 minutes or more per day, but I believe that any adaptation of this exercise is extremely beneficial, such as running energy from above your crown, through the crown and down through your grounding cord into the Earth. The key here is to run energy down. The benefits of doing this are extraordinary, as you will see if you read Dr. Wilson’s article. Benefits include detoxifying the organs, improved energy, and releasing etheric attachments.

25. Having a grounded person help you out

If you are lucky enough to be around someone who is energetically grounded, centered, and balanced, have them put their hand on your lower back for a little while and you will feel more grounded!

So there you have it, Lightworker family. Now go out there and get grounded!!!

ARIA BELLA: “Why You Need Meditation”

“The birds chattering, the distant sound of cars. Feeling the sun or breeze on my face, really helping to anchor me in my body as I take in those sensations. Not only does it bring your stress levels down, it allows your body to go into its optimum level for relaxation and healing.”

~Aria Bella

 

Meditation is good for the soul, for the whole body and your mind.  Go indulge today!

If you want an all-out activity that is going to soothe every single part of you and your senses — go meditate!!  It doesn’t have to be long, hard or full on.  Meditation comes in all shapes and sizes — you just have to find the ones that fit.

A really easy meditation to do is mindfulness — this can be done anywhere — making dinner, washing the dishes, hanging the clothes out.  All it asks you to do is be fully present in the moment, focusing on what you are doing, listening to the sounds around you and just being in that moment.

If you struggle with mind chatter, then guided meditation or ones where you need to chant may work for you as it helps to keep those natters to the background.  I personally love going outside and focussing on the sounds around me.

The birds chattering, the distant sound of cars.  Feeling the sun or breeze on my face, really helping to anchor me in my body as I take in those sensations.  Not only does it bring your stress levels down, it allows your body to go into its optimum level for relaxation and healing.  It gives your mind permission to take a break — although your mind will still have thoughts, so do not think you are doing it wrong just because it is still carrying on, it is its job.

Just allow them to flow without focussing on them. It brings your soul to the fore as well.  So it is really the best all round exercise that you can possibly do for your wellbeing.  Even if you think you are not a meditator — and my hand is up on this one.  Keep at it and give yourself a few minutes every day, increasing if you can to get some of that deep AH into your day.

Your heart, body, soul and mind will thank you!

“I allow myself to meditate for the best of me”

Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx

THICH NHAT HANH: “Awakening From The Illusion Of Separation”

illusion-of-separateness_flower-clouds

by Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh on the interdependence of all things in the universe

We are here to awaken from the illusion of separateness
~Thich Nhat Hanh

The following is a short excerpt from a 1998 Dharma talk by Thich Nhat Hanh, entitled The Island of Self: The Three Dharma Seals. Here he explains how awareness of the interdependence of all things in the universe can provide us with deeper insight into the Buddha’s teachings on non-self, emptiness and impermanence. 

“What is non-self, Anatta? It means impermanence. If things are impermanent, they don’t remain the same things forever. You of this moment are no longer you of a minute ago. There is no permanent entity within us, there is only a stream of being.

There is always a lot of input and output. The input and the output happen in every second, and we should learn how to look at life as streams of being, and not as separate entities. This is a very profound teaching of the Buddha.

Inter-being with the world

For instance, looking into a flower, you can see that the flower is made of many elements that we can call non-flower elements. When you touch the flower, you touch the cloud. You cannot remove the cloud from the flower, because if you could remove the cloud from the flower, the flower would collapse right away.

You don’t have to be a poet in order to see a cloud floating in the flower, but you know very well that without the clouds there would be no rain and no water for the flower to grow.

So cloud is part of flower, and if you send the element cloud back to the sky, there will be no flower. Cloud is a non-flower element. And the sunshine…you can touch the sunshine here. If you send back the element sunshine, the flower will vanish. And sunshine is another non-flower element.

And earth, and gardener… if you continue, you will see a multitude of non-flower elements in the flower. In fact, a flower is made only with non-flower elements. It does not have a separate self.

When you touch the flower, you touch the cloud

So the true nature of the flower is the nature of inter-being, the nature of no self.

A flower cannot be by herself alone. A flower has to “inter-be” with everything else that is called non-flower. That is what we call inter-being. You cannot be, you can only inter-be. The word inter-be can reveal more of the reality than the word “to be.” You cannot be by yourself alone, you have to inter-be with everything else.

The flower is there, beautiful, fragrant, yes, but the flower is empty of a separate self. To be empty is not a negative note. Nagarjuna, of the second century, said that because of emptiness, everything becomes possible.

Looking into the nature of your non-self

So a flower is described as empty. But I like to say it differently. A flower is empty only of a separate self, but a flower is full of everything else. The whole cosmos can be seen, can be identified, can be touched, in one flower. So to say that the flower is empty of a separate self also means that the flower is full of the cosmos.

You are a manifestation of the cosmos

It’s the same thing. So you are of the same nature as a flower: you are empty of a separate self, but you are full of the cosmos. You are as wonderful as the cosmos, you are a manifestation of the cosmos.

So non-self is another guide that Buddha offers us in order for us to successfully practice looking deeply. What does it mean to look deeply? Looking deeply means to look in such a way that the true nature of impermanence and non-self can reveal themselves to you.

Looking into yourself, looking into the flower, you can touch the nature of impermanence and the nature of non-self, and if you can touch the nature of impermanence and non-self deeply, you can also touch the nature of nirvana, which is the Third Dharma Seal.”

~By Thich Nhat Hanh
The Island of Self

 “All in One, One in All. The All melts into a single whole. There are no divisions in the totality of reality… It views the cosmos as holy, as “one bright pearl,” the universal reality of the Buddha..” The view of inter-being and interpenetration is central to the Huayan School of Buddhism.
