Understanding the Sacral Chakra

Understanding the Sacral Chakra
The key to understanding the Sacral Chakra is understanding that the energy it houses is all creative, emotional energy. It’s just being channeled in different directions. The force you feel to paint a masterpiece is the same passion expressed in a luscious sexual encounter – it’s all sweetness. 

Understanding the Root Chakra

Understanding the Root Chakra
The Root Chakra is considered the foundation of the entire chakra system, supporting the energy centers above it and helping to maintain their balance. It establishes the connection between your physical body and the spiritual Earth. This chakra holds our survival instinct, our need for nourishment, and our sense of safety and security on the physical plane. This energy is our primal nature, our animal instinct to exist and endure.

Living 'Face-First'

Living 'Face-First'
Like most of us, when I was in my mid-teens to early twenties I didn’t understand much about myself. What’s worse, in my case, is that I have always been overly empathetic. It comes easy to me to assess the emotional state of others, and to not only know how they feel but able to understand why. This was an issue because as it got easier to share other people’s feelings, it became harder to understand mine. I could relate to others better than to myself.

The Descent of Inanna – Understanding the Dark Goddess Ereshkigal
Ereshkigal is the true essence of a Dark Goddess. From the moment she enters Irkalla, the Underworld, she embraces the realm and her role as Queen and Goddess of the Law. In spiritual terms, she embodies the shadow self; what psychoanalyst Jung described as the undesirable parts of our consciousness – the things we deem as evil, inferior, or unacceptable. 

Oya, Queen of the Cemetery

Oya, Queen of the Cemetery
As Queen of the Cemetery, Oya guards the gate between the living and the dead. She does not live in the cemetery; think of her role here as a kind of ‘day job’. She stands at the gates, ensuring the boundaries between birth, death, and rebirth are respected, and that every soul is accounted for. As she is the Goddess of Wind, it is said the first breath of life we take and the last breath we give belong to Oya.
