Chakras Explained in Children’s Cartoon

I love the chakras and use the psychology of the chakras frequently to help people understand the issues that they are dealing with at different levels in their lives.  This children’s cartoon is actually quite close to making sense of the chakras and how we can clear blockages and open up the flow of the life force to gain greater health in the physical, mental and spiritual realms of our existence.  I have recently completed a course with Anodea Judith, one of the leading masters teaching about the chakras.  Her focus in this class was how to manifest our dreams through the chakras and in future posts, I look forward to sharing more of the skills and tools she taught us in the course.  So, enjoy this little cartoon and stay tuned for more illumination about the chakras.

A Sabbath of Days

Sunrise oceanA Sabbath of days, peaceful feeling, simply being.  That’s what today has been at last.  Early morning pictures of the ocean, sitting watching the waves, meditating on the morning.  What is my heart’s desire?  It came to me this morning as I was quieting my mind that I really want to help people.  I want to provide others and myself with information that will help us all to heal, prepare, and prosper.  So maybe I am a teacher or a writer or a healer.  It is clear at least that whatever it is that I create or support the creation of is intended to be of benefit to others.  The music, the writing, the ideas, the events, the media, the words of encouragement, information.  All is meant to contribute to the healing of our world.

I wrote the paragraph above in Florida on November 6, 2005 almost ten years ago and I realize I could have written it today.  I love it when we can read a journal entry from years past and find that the words still ring true.  Over four decades ago when I was living in New York City and going through a personal spiritual struggle, I made a lot of entries in my journal wishing for what I could become, how I could change and discover who I really am and what I am here for.  Much transpired after that period of soul searching when I came across that journal and read my words of youthful yearning.  I had met my soul mate Dean Evenson.  He moved in across the hall from me!  We had married and I had given birth to our first child.  We had moved to the country.  We had discovered part of our purpose in creating meaningful videotapes.  And so on….  In reading my earlier words I realized I had become what I was wanting to be.  My dreams had been realized.  What a wonderful discovery to find out that our dreams really can become realities.

What is your heart’s desire?  What do you feel called upon to contribute in this lifetime to the world around you?  I hope you are keeping a journal and jotting down your thoughts.  Someday you may read your own words and find out your dreams have come true too.  Feel free to share your thoughts here.

What really makes a person happy?

I couldn’t resist sharing this wonderful video from Jack LaLanne who was an early forerunner of the fitness movement.  Jack enthusiastically taught people how to be healthy through nutrition, exercise and good attitude. Hey doesn’t that sound familiar?  It’s what we’ve been talking about for years.  This video encapsulates his tone and spirit and is a good one to watch over and over whenever you are feeling down in the dumps.  All the money in the world can’t seem to buy happiness so perhaps we need to take a clue from people who have less in the form of material wealth but seem to have it going in the spiritual wealth department. Thank you Jack LaLanne for being such an inspiration!  May we continue the quest you began for true health and happiness and share what we have been learning.

Let me know how you find happiness even when times are tough.
