The Divine Feminine: Unleashing the Goddess Within

“the closest thing to god on this earth is a woman’s body”

when my mother was pregnant

with her second child I was four

i pointed at her swollen belly confused at how

my mother had gotten so big in such little time

my father scooped me in his tree trunk arms and

said the closest thing to god on this earth

is a woman’s body it’s where life comes from

and to have a grown man tell me something

so powerful at such a young age

changed me to see the entire universe

rested at my mother’s feet

Now, we are going to take a closer look at the sacral chakra, the second of the seven major chakras. Continue reading “The Sacral Chakra: Signs of Blockage and How to Heal”

Chakras: The Basics and How You Can Heal Yours

Chakras are an integral part of our physical and spiritual beings.

Sometimes, I get really bad heartburn. The kind of heartburn that seems to last for days and days and makes me feel so gross. Picturing a bright yellow light in the area of my solar plexus usually helps alleviate this.

Sometimes, I feel a sort of pressure or even a gentle vibrating sensation on my forehead, right between my eyebrows, in my third eye. This tells me that my intuition is active and strong.

Sometimes, my chest gets really tight. It feels like it needs to crack, but I can’t crack it. This could mean that my heart chakra is blocked, so I take the necessary steps to open it again. Continue reading “Chakras: The Basics and How You Can Heal Yours”
