Understanding body systems, part 1: chakras within chakras

I've been a little AWOL on my blog lately. I've been very busy with a bunch of new projects. Today I want to talk about SYSTEMS.

The body runs on SYSTEMS. In the physical body, we've heard of a bunch of them:

  • the digestive system
  • the immune system
  • the cardiovascular system
  • the endocrine system
  • and so on. 

All of these systems are physical AND have energetic components. This is because emotions and trauma, while very responsive to energy work, are also material in nature. Our emotions are made up of chemicals, molecules; when we release them through energy work or talk therapy or any other type of emotion release, we are actually helping our bodies physically metabolize our emotions and trauma.

This is one reason I encourage my own clients to take deep forceful breaths when releasing, to drink lots of water, and to tap on meridian points and to stretch while going through a session. You breathe out, flush out, metabolize those emotions and trauma in your actual body. Bodies matter.

Physical systems can have serious energetic problems. For example: your immune system can be fragmented, or the energy of it can be missing entirely. It can be going the wrong direction, or 'turned off,' which means it's present but just not functioning.

If it's fragmented and an energy worker doesn't realize it, unless the fragmentation is healed, there are going to be major problems with the system.

If the system is missing, an energy worker can still work on the system wherever it is, but since it won't be associated with the body at that time, there will still be problems.

If the system is functioning but flowing in the wrong direction, you're going to have some problems.

Sometimes the body has an inaccurate idea of which direction a system should flow. It's very important to download to the body an understanding of how and which way a system should be flowing.

Understanding the physical body's systems is very important.

However, there are not just physical systems in the body that are relevant to physical and emotional health. There are energetic systems as well.

The most famous energetic systems are probably the auric system, the meridian system, and the chakra system. These systems are important, but it's also important to note that there are many more systems in the body than just these.

Additionally, each system is much more complex than most people initially understand.

Even in my teaching, I don't usually delve too far deeply into the nuances of each system. But there are plenty, plenty of nuances, and I am working to create more modules for my mentorship program to cover these nuances.

For example: each chakra is a holon, a whole system within a system. Most people are aware that chakras have fronts and backs that need to be united, and most people are aware that there is an inner layer and an outer layer to each chakra, and that both layers are supposed to be spinning in different directions, and hopefully most people know to download to each client's body the specific divine instructions for optimal chakra spinning speed and direction.

But chakras are more complex than that.

Within each chakra there are seven more mini-chakras. As an example, take your root chakra. Your root chakra has a front and a back, an inside and an outside, an outer membrane, and a membrane separating the inside from the outside. But within it, or sort of overlaid on top of it, there are seven more sub-chakras that deal with sub-sets of data. Chakras are really just spinning vortexes of information, and they are as well-constructed as libraries, when they are functioning ideally.

I'm not an artist, but this is my
rendition of the chakras within
the root chakra. Each person's
primary chakras are differently
sized, and their sub-chakra sizes
can differ as well. In this example
the heart root-sub-chakra is larger
than the others, indicating
So your root chakra will have its own root chakra, its own heart chakra, its own crown chakra, and all of these parts interact as you would expect. The root of the root deals with survival issues stemming from survival issues. The chakra relating to identity, when placed in the root chakra, deals with those issues of the root chakra that are tied to identity issues. And so on.

The third chakra of my root chakra, for example, contains stored information on how I should function as part of my identity, in the case of a survival situation, or any other type of situation governed by the root chakra. In the case of trauma, I'm scanning myself now: in my third chakra of my root chakra, it says I have one trauma lodged there. It's from when I was 4 months old and it has to do with me relating my sense of self and identity, to my survival struggles of feeling hungry and tired.

So when I clear that issue from my root chakra, it is more specifically clearing from the specific part of my chakra tied to my sense of identity.

Is that important?

Sometimes yes, and sometimes no. It depends on what exactly each emotion needs identified in order to clear. Sometimes, emotions need you to know simple things, like how old you were when an event took place, or what the exact emotion was or why it got stuck. Sometimes you need to know exactly where an emotion is stored, and if it is important to your subconscious mind that you acknowledge that the emotion is stored in a sub-chakra, well, then that's important to know.

It's important to note that the nuances of the chakra system are not often discussed because they are really beyond the scope of most healers--and frankly, most clients. If you have major, large-scale, big-picture damage to your primary cerebrospinal chakras, tinkering around with sub-chakras is a joke. People see amazing results working just with chakras generally, without delving deeply into how they work, and the finer traumas lodged in tiny spaces within, and if you've got major energetic damage to your chakra system, or your chakras are missing or deeply imbalanced, the most important thing is to get that straightened out, and that is much more important than digging deep into each separate chakra.

My philosophy with energy work is very similar to that of many other energy workers: the goal is for the client to get the most "bang for their buck," and that requires focusing the efforts mostly on big picture stuff. And so for many people much of the time, it is sufficient to work on the most superficial layers of the chakras.

But what if a sub-chakra affects the big picture?

And that, to me, is why it's useful to understand the body's systems very thoroughly.

I've been researching the body's various systems for several years now, but I've been researching them much more deeply in recent months. The chakras themselves are complex, but just as complex is the chakra system as a whole.

I wondered why it was that the chakras can be so unstable--how come they keep needing to be realigned? And when I probed more deeply, what I found is that there IS a system to keep the chakras "plugged in" and permanently aligned in proper alignment--only virtually everyone on the planet comes to earth so traumatized that those crucial pieces of the energetic anatomy are missing. There are many working parts to that system and in my experience, each one needs to be called back separately. But once they're all back and cleaned and in good working order, the chakras stay much more stabilized and resilient. I will need to write about that soon.

I've been putting off writing about my anatomical work because I've wanted to sketch out the things I have seen so you can see them also. I'll be working on that. But in the meantime, this is a good start. There are chakras within chakras, and that may be important for you to know.

There is more in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy!

More about Monday's Solar Eclipse

I was so so excited to find a link that I wanted to share with you on Monday, but I couldn't find it. I thought: surely I have saved this one somewhere! And I did, but just nowhere I thought to look until tonight

A lot is going on!! 
How have you been handling the eclipse energy? Hopefully all right?

Heavenly events, especially large ones, tend to affect us for a few days on each end. So it's very normal to feel abnormally moody for the 3-7 days prior to an eclipse, as well as the 3-7 days after.

Here's an article about the effects of the eclipse women have been noticing on their cycles.

The point is: if you're still feeling kind of shaken up, don't worry! It's normal!

Let me know how you're handling all this energy--I love to hear from you!


PS. I'm planning an upcoming series of sessions for anxiety. I'm planning to send more information out about it as I'm working on it, but if you are more particularly interested in learning more, please let me know! 

Sending you all the good vibes!!!!

Solar Eclipse Roundup

Many of you have emailed me asking where the solar eclipse info is! I've been so busy actually managing the side effects of this set of eclipses, I haven't even had a chance to round up information for you! But that's what this post is for.
The Solar Eclipse
This solar eclipse is a big deal on lots, lots of levels. You can expect to feel its effects on a personal level and on a national and international level. 

Eclipses are times of endings and beginnings. If you haven't watched my Lunar Eclipse session from two weeks ago, it is not too late! This will help with releasing the things that need to go so we can step into our new path with this solar eclipse. 

Important stuff to know about this eclipse: 

- The last time an eclipse like this happened--only visible in totality from the United States-- was 1776. Seems significant to me!

- This eclipse is exactly 40 days from Yom Kippur--the day of atonement. 

- 7 years after this eclipse, another matching one going the opposite direction will be right over the US, and the X of this X-marks-the-spot will be right over the Adam-Ondi-Ahman area. 

There is so, so much to be aware of regarding this eclipse, but these articles are a good start:

This article is an LDS commentary on the significance of this eclipse. 

TO SEE OR NOT TO SEE?This is from Yogi Bhajan's library of teachings on what to do during an eclipse:

YB: Tomorrow is eclipse, is that right?
Student: Yes.
YB: You shall at that time be meditating "Har." Be graceful, try to... After so many hundred years, this thing has come here, and that time whosever shall remain still, shall benefit multiple, stillness is a practice, be still, then don't go out and see, what is happening? Nothing is happening but you will lose the eyesight if you go and see it naked eye. We are not seeing lot of it but that is the time of pure meditative mind because what happens is when eclipse has started coming the moon started coming in-between earth and sun, the entire magnetic energy, the kilowatt frequency of the magnetic energy changes. You might have practiced all these days, lot of hassles, lot of irritation, lot of pimples, lot of body problem, blood problem, menstruation getting upside down (?), all that stuff, you might be thinking what is going on? After tomorrow it will change, for some for the better, for some for the worst.

Today is a great day to be still and to meditate. The moon and sun coming together is a powerful energy for uniting what has been divided within, for harnessing the power of both the masculine and feminine energies.

The link to Yogi Bhajan's lecture has a whole lesson on crisis of personality. 

But today is a great day to meditate, to realize what you need to let go of, and to let go of it. Today is a great day to prepare for new beginnings. The new beginnings are already beginning. But today is a great day to be aware of them, to welcome them, to choose to face them without fear, to face them with acceptance. 

No matter what these endings and new beginnings mean for you personally--you can handle them with dignity and grace.

Please send me any questions or thoughts or comments--I love to hear from you!

I may do an eclipse session later today if I can make the time. If I do I'll send out another email about it. But in the meantime: stillness, meditation, introspection. Grace, faith, dignity.

Practice makes perfect--even with healing!

I read an interesting article recently that included the following as a footnote:

Joseph had the plates for two hundred and two days before the first page was translated. During this time he worked on developing his gift and tried various approaches but only translated a few figures and characters. The translation of the book of Lehi began on April 12, 1828 and took sixty-four days to translate one hundred and sixteen written pages. The book of Lehi was translated at an average rate of 1.81 pages per day. With the loss of the book of Lehi, Joseph’s gift to translate was taken from him for a season. The translation work was resumed with Oliver Cowdery as Joseph’s scribe on April 7, 1829. They began the translation of the portions of the gold plates we have today as the Book of Mormon. It took eighty-five days to translate four hundred and sixty-six written pages. This translation was done at a rate of 5.48 pages per day—over three times faster than the first one hundred sixteen pages. The increase in Joseph’s translation speed is an illustration of this truth: “That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to do is increased.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson quoted by President Heber J. Grant. “Seventieth Annual Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” The Deseret News, 1900, p. 63) 

I loved it and had to blog about it.

So many people really want the gift of healing and feel like it is beyond their grasp. They feel like they're learning really slowly, that they'll never feel competent at energy healing.

For me, my learning curve was long and slow. From first hearing about auras and wishing I could see them, to actually being able to discern them to some degree, was about 10 years for me. I first learned muscle testing when I was 17; I actually got good at muscle testing when I was 25.

When I first picked up a book on healing through theta states, I felt like an idiot and it took me a long time every night to even feel like I was doing anything. Honestly, I didn't usually feel like I was accomplishing anything. But the key is that I practiced every night.

At the beginning of my energy healing journey, I stuck with body work (quantum touch-style hands-on healing) and I just tried to practice every day on anyone who would let me. Sometimes it seemed to make a difference, and often it didn't. But I kept practicing.

I firmly believe that everyone is capable of healing--but to me, the key seems to be practice.

If you are struggling to feel like you can heal, to feel like you can be a healer, take a deep breath! It will be okay!! Just keep practicing. Practice what you know, even when it feels fruitless and like a waste of time. I've spent years feeling like I was wasting my time. But it turned out I wasn't.

Due to the nature of morphic fields, it's actually easier now for you to get better, faster. Go read this article to understand why.

There's never been a better time to practice! If it feels slow-going, don't worry! It will work out!! Keep trying. We all struggle in the beginning and eventually figure it out. You can do it!

Pluto retrograde: purging some toxins from your life

Today we're working on incorporating Pluto, which entered retrograde on April 19. Link to The Gospel and Reading the Stars

What things do you have going on that need to go? Pluto plays several roles: it digs up the things below the surface, in the "underworld" of our hearts. It helps us figure out where we fit into the world at large. It drags up our toxins and releases them.

I guess that makes today a good day to mention that I'm opening up my mentorship program for this coming summer--if you feel like that is something you want to learn more about, please email me directly. 

But back to business: Pluto. Where do you fit into the grand scheme of things? How do you fit into the world at large? I'll talk more about that tomorrow but for now, we're dealing with some yucky stuff.
Pluto is all about purging the "toxins" from your life.

The question to ask today is: What do I need purged from my spirit? 

For most of us, it's going to be something we don't want purged!

But the trick is to be brave. Ask in prayer how you can assist the purging process. We can humble ourselves, or have God humble us for us. But humbling ourselves is a much kinder process!

What do you need purged? How do you need to do it? 

You might get any number of answers. Maybe you need to purge those unnecessary piano lessons. Maybe you need to purge your own laziness. Maybe you need to purge a bad habit or even an addiction. Maybe you have a backlog of emotions and traumatic events you need released. Maybe you need to purge something physically--time for a colon cleanse? Liver cleanse? Anyone? 

Don't be afraid of what your body and spirit tell you they need. They are out to serve you. All of this is to help you grow. Maybe you have something you need to clear from your life that scares you. I'll tell you one of mine... I have a corner in my living room that is out of control!! Eek! The house "hotspot" for sure. One thing I personally need to purge is the unnecessary clutter in my house and I dread it. I've been plugging away at it but it just keeps going. But that's okay.

We just keep going.

We face the things we don't want to face. Because we are brave and WE CAN DO IT!!

You can do it.

If you want to, send me an email about what you're purging from your life this week. I'm still recovering from eye surgery but I can't wait to read it when I get back.

Learning from Mercury: Making some changes

Hopefully the past few days you have felt some shifts in your life as you've released some of the things that have been weighing on you. Today, here is another exercise to help you clear some of the burdens relating to the Mercury Retrograde. Here is the obligatory link to The Gospel and Reading the Stars
Mercury carries a message. Are you listening?
Yesterday, you hopefully got some unfinished business resolved. Today is a great day to continue that trend. Go ahead and block off some more time today to complete an unfinished task you wrote down for yourself yesterday. Even better would be to block off a few minutes up to an hour every day for the rest of the week, or even the rest of the retrograde. You can do hard things! As you set aside even just a few minutes a day to complete your unfinished business, you will free yourself up to step forward in faith and joy. You will feel a burden lifted. 
Today's exercise
Today's exercise will really help you get clearing these mercurial energies. Over the past few days, if you've been listening and doing the homework and paying attention, some themes about your life should have arisen. What are they?

Go ahead and write them down. What is the message of this Mercury Retrograde for you?

What are the changes you need to make?

Today's exercise is the simplest and the hardest of them all: today, you will write out the changes you know you need to make.

Then, you will create an action plan to make those changes. ​​​​​​​
As an example, we'll use Fictional Person Sally. Sally has been dealing with a lot of hard stuff in her life, and it only got worse while the retrograde was happening. Her car broke down, she lost her phone, she was late to work so much her boss called her in, she's behind on rent, her kid got suspended for violent behavior, and her estranged spouse sent her a bunch of creepy texts. Fictional Person Sally has a lot going on!

 In doing her exercises, she found a few themes in her life that were being brought up as part of the retrograde. 

In the Aries theme of leadership, she was dismayed to discover that she was not really leading her own life. It was like she'd fallen asleep at the wheel. She hated her job, didn't like her boss, and felt "lost at sea" when she thought about her life.

In the Taurus theme of materialism, she realized that she was struggling with severe survival and abundance issues: feeling like she had to struggle for every scrap that came her way. She realized she was rejecting abundance on a body level and self-sabotaging her job and financial means.

In the overall Mercury theme of messages from the shadow self, she realized that she was self-sabotaging and needed to stop. Some fictional solutions to her fictional problems were: 

  • Going to bed earlier so she could wake up earlier and get to work on time
  • Reducing time spent watching TV and messing around on the internet, and spending that time budgeting, planning, and connecting with herself and God instead
  • Daily Kundalini meditation to start clearing her subconscious blocks to success
  • Prioritizing her relationship with her son
  • Releasing unnecessary physical and emotional clutter clogging up her life 
  • Making plans to transition into a job she could enjoy
For Fictional Person Sally, as her creator and the person in charge of her story I am declaring that those were really good starts! 
Take some time to look at your life. Really list out the things that have happened in the past month or so and what effect they've had on you. What is the theme? What is the message? And just as importantly--what will you choose to do about it? Today is the day to begin making those changes. Make your plan and commit to setting it in action!


More later!
