Herb

Imagine for a moment a meditation room with ivory walls, a light silk fabric flowing with the air movement and the aroma of a lavender plant naturally calming this space. To me, this sounds like a serene meditation space to relax and restore you in a sea of serenity.

Dry the lavender blooms and voila more uses.

  • Add a 1/4 tsp lavender buds, 1/4 tsp chamomile blooms, and 1 tsp marshmallow root to brew a nice relaxing tea. You may sweeten this with 1 tsp cane sugar, honey or whatever you enjoy. This will soothe your mind, body and spirit.
  • Make a lavender satchel with dried lavender buds. This wonderful aroma can be use for you, your linen or lingerie draws, or as a gift.
  • Use lavender buds for a floral pick me up in any room.
  • Place lavender buds on a gift or gift tag.
  • Sprinkle lavender buds in your pillowcase for a restful slumber.
  • Tie lavender buds together and create a decorative sweetly scented wreath.

 

Essential Oil

  • Place a drop or two of lavender essential oil with 1-2 drops of coconut oil on a cotton ball and tuck this in your bra for an all day and natural stress reliever.
  • Use 2-3 drop of l.e.o in your bath with Epsom salt and this soothes your tired, sore muscles.

  • Add 3-4 drop of l.e.o into a diffuser and fill your space with this serene aroma.

 Animal Friends

I am not a fan of the harsh anti-flea remedies. So,  I located at my health food store a natural option with lavender and other herbs collar.  Fortunately, I have also found soothing anti-anxiety lavender collars for my dog who was terrified of fireworks; and I would even spray l.e.o on her bed during high firework seasons.  This helped calm her down.

Edible

Yep, you can eat and ingest lavender buds. Edible lavender helps soothe your mind body and spirit in a gentle way.

  • A favorite treat of mine in the hot summer is lavender mint ice tea.
  • Another sweet treat is lavender sugar.
  • Once upon a time local bakery baked the most incredible lemon & lavender muffins.

The possibilities are endless with lavender.

Sacral Chakra Healing

How to Simply Heal Your Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is associated with the color orange  This is our embodiment into our sexual selves,  feeling creative and being able to express our emotions.

 

RELEASE AND CLEANSE

How often do you hear or read just release and let it go.

Or cleanse this our of your system.

However, what does this truly mean?

 

LIGHT ENERGY

We are energy light beings who thrive on energy.  This energy very much brings us expansion. Now close your eyes and imagine the Northern Lights.  Our inner light very much dances in harmony with our energy just as the Northern Lights.

 

Sacral CHAKRA IS Orange

This inner light helps empower our bodies.  In my last blog about the root chakra, we moved into a meditation to help align our Root Chakra . Next, we will work with the Sacral Chakra; the Sacral Chakra is the color Orange.  The color orange appears all around us.  We wear it, eat it and use all of our senses to enjoy the color orange.

 

IMBALANCED Sacral CHAKRA

PHYSICAL

An imbalanced Sacral Chakra may show in the form of infertility, Candida,  Spleen, Asthma, Allergies, Gall Bladder and alcoholism.

Ways to Love You

Loving Yourself

EMOTIONAL

This may also show in the form of lack of intimacy, depression, and low self-esteem/confidence to express one Self through creativity or emotional needs.

 

SIMPLY DIVINE

Energy healing seems complex; and in some ways it can be; but mostly the Divine Spirit wishes for this to be gentle and simple.  Or what I like to call Simply Divine. One of the Simply Divine ways to help re-balance your energies is through nourishment.

Your yoni is a major connection for your simply divine creative self expression, sensual and sexual energies.  Come explore and learn more about your yoni in my Huffington post.

NURTURING OURSELVES

Northern LightsClose your eyes and place your hands over your lower abdominal region.  Imagine a sweet, orange colored satsuma in your lower ab region. The Satsuma is sweet, delicious and succulent .  There is an orange light that pours from the Satsuma.  Imagine the light dancing within your lower abdomen; just as the Northern Lights dance in the sky.  Ask Spirit to help you illuminate your lower abs with this sweet orange light.  Let this pour into you.  Inhale and exhale in a natural rhythm that syncs with your heart beat. Sit like this for 5-6 minutes.

Say:
I am creative. 

I am open to love flowing into me. 

I freely express my desires.

 

NOURISHING OURSELVES

Sacral Chakra and Satsuma

Satsuma

Food brings forth good energies or bad energies depending on how we choose to nourish ourselves. I do not know about you, but I love Satsumas.  Taking a small Satsuma and slowly peeling back the outside skin to reveal a gorgeous, sweet treat.  Enjoy a nice Satsuma. I just found a wonderful variation called Golden Nuggets; YUM!  Take a bite, swirl this on your teeth, swish this in your mouth and chew in a mindful manner.  Envision this flowing all the way to your lower abs and flushing this all around the abdomen. Spreading and flowing in a fluid manner with your sweetness-filling you in this region and expanding throughout you. The light energies of the Satsuma pulses through you. You are connecting and balancing yourself in a sweet manner full of Divine Love of Spirit.

Cleanse, Transmute, Let Go

Enriching African Violets

To some, the African Violet is known to be a fussy plant, and many are nervous to attempt to grow this in their homes.  This may cause one to miss out on their special magical qualities.

How to care for an African Violet: 

  • This plant requires keeping the soil moist to dry.growing-african-violets-L-Jrwnt_
  • To encourage blooming please allow the soil around the roots to dry out before watering.
  • It is more beneficial to water from the bottom with room temperature water; as this helps to avoid getting water on the leaves that can cause spotting damage.
  • The flowering plant requires moderate to bright light, some people will have special lighting units just for their African violet.

This may seem like a bunch of work.  The benefits far outweigh the care of the plant.

African Violet Cleansing Benefits: 

This beautiful plant and flower is a mega powerhouse in the form of cleansing one’s space. This happens in a natural way.

Cleanse Your Energies African VioletsClearing of Negative Energies:

They are able to clear away the old, heavy energies that may weigh one down.  Especially an empath.  In any space this sweet beauty will powerfully eliminate those energies. Thus, having this in your home or office will help reduce the negative vibes that may be around.  No one will even be aware, and believe this to just be a beautiful flowering plant.

They are also incredible at transmuting the lower energies into a higher vibration. Purchase and place the African Violet; water and voila this plant will continue to cleanse away those dark, old energies that may be unknowingly stuck in your body or space.

Eliminating the Old: 

The presence of an African violet can help release the old, creating an easier transition.  The African violet says, “Please ask me to help you clear away your old nuisances and allow space for the new to take place.”

Bad Dreams and/or Nightmares: 

If you are one to have nightmares or bad dreams, place this near your bedside.  It will help to erase these from you.  Or a child who may have difficulty with sleeping, place this in their rooms and the fear of things that go bump in the night shall lessen.

Archangel Qualities: 

Not only are the plants and flowers a great way to clear negative energies, this plant/flower also works with Archangels.

Archangel Michael who is known as -he who is like God, has a way to create releasing and clearing.  If you request the help of the African violet along with Archangel Michael’s sword, this is a powerful combination. He will cut away the negative vibes and energies.  After he clears away the negative energies, ask Archangel Michael, “Dear Archangel Michael please place a protective divine white light all around me.”  Breath in 3 counts, hold for 3 counts and breath out for 3 counts, and so it is.  The African violet helps to continue to cleanse the area around one.

Archangel Raphel is an angel of healing-one who heals God’s souls. Requesting his presence along with the African violet can help the healing of a concerned ailment.  He is associated with the color green, and green sparkles are a sign that he is present.

Metatron is not an “Archangel,” but a human known in the form of a prophet and for his Merkaba cube.  This can help in the clearing of lower energies, and when utilizing Metatron’s gifts one may see pink and green lights.

Associated Chakras: 

The Third Eye,  Crown Root  chakras are associated with the African violet.  This dazzling plant can help get rid of any negative, old, heavy energies that are not allowing one to utilize these chakras. The African Violet can help transmute dark, heavy energies into lighter freer energies. This will help you connect and balance the foundation of your root chakra and connect more deeply into your Spiritual Self through the Third Eye and Crown chakras.

If you feel that these chakras are blocked, sit near an African violet and ask the flowering or non-flowering beauty to help you remove that which is blocking.

Pets: 

Please be aware that sometimes cats like to nibble on this plant, and this is not good as ingesting the leaves is poisonous.

May you enjoy the incredible grace that this flowering plant bestows upon us in a most natural manner.

Oodles of Love,

Natasha
