Numerology of 5, the Icosahedron and Take 5 Breath Work to Combat Stress.

In April I was researching box breathing or 4/4 breathing to bring about a sense of equilibrium. 4 connects us to the energy of stability and balance, in sacred geometry it connects us to the shape of the cube and in turn our base chakra.

Now in May I have been pondering how we can connect to the number 5 in a similar way. In numerology the number 5 represents stepping out of our comfort zone. Whereas 4 represents the safety and security of the home, with the number 5 we are moving away from what is safe and into new territory. With the number 5 comes adventure, curiosity, creative sparks and endeavours leading to change and transformation. It is a dynamic and fluid energy that gets things moving.

This energy has been intensified greatly during this month of May 2021 in which we had a 555 energy portal (on the 5th May as 2021 is a 5 year, hence 5-5-5) what this meant for us as a collective is that there was a huge amount of this transformative energy within the Collective Consciousness. Many of us have experienced change on a large scale, new and unexpected opportunities coming in; things that have been ideas for sometime becoming grounded into our realities at an alarming rate. Endings and closures, cord cuttings, moving on, letting go – this energy has been intense over the last few weeks.

This energy can lead to a sense of chaos and excitement, its a lively and highly intense energy that can be very ungrounded. Unchecked this can lead to a sense of anxiety and hyperawareness. New situations often bring with it the fear of the unknown and this can also lead to heightened stress.

One way to temper this skittish and unpredictable energy and to alleviate the stress that can occur at these times is to focus in on Sacral Chakra healing and incorporating Sacred Geometry as well as breath work in your spiritual practise.

Sacred Geometry – The Icosahedron is the 5th Platonic Solid and it is associated with the element of Water and the Sacral Chakra. Working with and meditating on this shape, either by wearing or holding crystal Icosahedrons and tracing the shape of them with your fingers or by drawing them can help to sooth the chaotic characteristic of Water and in turn help to calm the sense of chaos within us.

Sacral Chakra – The Sacral Chakra is the centre of creativity and primal, sexual energy. This energy can be both intense and healing. Allowing ourselves to connect to this energy brings about a sense of vitality and excitement. This is very similar to the energy of 5 in numerology but an imbalance can lead to blocks – the heightened energy can create the fight or flight, or the shutdown response in us as our emotions become too much to process in the moment. Cooling and calming the sacral chakra, connecting to the energy of water and focusing in on balancing this can help us to remove blockages, or to soothe the chaotic element within our emotions and allow us to settle into the flow, to be present and to feel a little calmer and in control. One way to do this is to focus in on our sacral chakra space while doing some 5 centred breath work.

Breath Work – this is so simple and effective that anyone can do it and it is a great thing to teach kids to do to alleviate fear of the unknown, for example if starting a new school or club. It’s called Take 5 Breathing and you simply trace around your fingers and thumbs, breathing in on the way up, and out on the way down. Trying to go slower on the down movements to ensure your exhalation is longer than the inhalation. This then helps in a number of ways:

  • We bring our attention to the present moment.
  • We do breath work that naturally combats the fight/flight or shutdown response.
  • We become aware of physical sensations as we move our finger over our hand and this helps bring a sense of comfort and brings our focus into the physical as opposed to mental or emotional.
  • Doing this along with visualising Water moving in a gentle flow can help to mitigate the sense of chaos within our emotions.

If you wish to learn how to draw the Icosahedron using Metatron’s Cube as a frame then look out for my next video coming soon which will be a tutorial on how to do this.

Box Breathing & Numerology of 4 for Balance and Stability.

Numerology of Number 4.

The number 4 in numerology signifies solid foundations, balance, resourcefulness, practicality, dependability, steadfastness, security, stability.
Its the number of the square, the most balanced of all shapes. The energy of 4 is rational, capable, productive, grounded. Those with a 4 life path number are hard-working, patient, loyal, dependable, practical and driven towards creating solid homes and relationships.

Box / 4/4 Breathing.

4 is the number of the base chakra, in sacred geometry the number 4 is linked into the Hexahedron (Cube). Working with this number, and the shape of the square or cube can help to bring a sense of balance and stability. Linking into this energy can be done in a number of ways. You can carry hexahedron shaped crystals, draw squares or cubes, work with the element of Earth, but a very simple way to link into this grounding and balancing energy is to use box breathing. This is a breath work technique that takes just over a minute to complete and involves inhaling for a count of 4, holding for a count of 4, exhaling for a count of 4, holding for a count of 4, 4 times – doing this 4 times a day for 4 days can help bring a sense of balance. This is great for times of stress or anxiety, if you find yourself over thinking, struggling with overwhelm or just needing to take a moment to reset.
If you, like many others, struggle with the counting and keeping track of breaths I have a short video about this and I take you through a very quick guided box breathing exercise.

Crown Chakra Healing.

The crown chakra is located at the top of the head. It governs all things to do with the mind, thought, the pineal gland, the central nervous system, the skull, head and brain.

The Crown Chakra is our connection to the higher vibrational universal energies. It is our link to the energy that is present in all things – the web of life, God, Source, Universal Energy, the Cosmos, the Light – whatever it is that you identify with, it is the Crown chakra that acts as our link between our physical bodies and these higher universal energies.

When the Crown Chakra is balanced and open we have a sense of peace, bliss, connection, guidance and complete faith in the guidance we receive. We recognise the Divine essence in all things and it allows for a sense of awe and wonder to be present as we witness the most mundane and everyday things. Using the analogy of electrical energy, if you imagine us as the electrical device, the Universe as the generator and Source energy as the electricity, then the Crown Chakra acts as kind of energetic plug socket. Its the point of connection and when it is clear and allowing the energy to flow smoothly we have a sense of deep belonging brought about by the sureness of unwavering Spiritual Faith. We feel connected, inspired, supported, and a sense of unity with the universe and with all things.

Maybe the present is a pixel in a much larger design,
If the picture’s resolution is a trillion x a trillion,
But the CPU display is only 1×1…
Well then its easy to assume that there is nothing but the room
In which we hide and not a WHOLE UNIVERSE outside.
I don’t know if any of this makes sense…
I don’t know if I should end it with an Amen,
I just know there’s a river in every raindrop
And a LOT of raindrops in the riverbed.’

Riverbed – Guante

Symptoms of Crown Chakra Imbalance.

  • Sense of spiritual disconnection.
  • Loneliness.
  • Need to be accepted by others.
  • No sense of purpose or direction.
  • Lethargy.
  • Hyper sensitivity to environment.
  • Neurological disorders.
  • Skin Disorders.
  • Autoimmune Disorders.
  • Lack of Inspiration.
  • Spiritual Crisis.
  • Lack of or loss of Faith.
  • Ego driven.
  • Headaches.
  • Brain Fog.
  • Mental Blockages.
  • Overthinking.
  • Inability to still your mind.
  • Crown Chakra blockages will have a knock on affect for all the lower chakras as this is the point of connection to Source and if this is blocked it will knock all the chakras out of balance so any of the symptoms mentioned in the previous blogs I have written can manifest as a result of Crown Chakra imbalances.

Crown Chakra Healing.

Colour: The colours for Crown Chakra healing are violet, purple, white, silver, gold and I also include grey. Violet and purple contain both red – grounding and linked to the root chakra; and Blue – Healing and linked to the throat chakra these are 2 opposing energies. Red holds the connection to our physical bodies and blue links us to the elements of Air and Cosmos and authenticity. Purple links us to spirituality, imagination and violet brings us into the energy of connectedness, peace, bliss and harmony and a state of being separated from our Ego which in turn leads to the sense of Oneness that occurs when our Ego is suspended and we are aware of the interconnected of all things. White represents purity, the angelic realms, The Light, awakening, newness, clarity and cleansing. Silver links us to the energies of protection and can help with connecting the Crown and Third Eye Chakras and Gold link us to Sacred energy and Abundance. This is another great colour to bring in to help connect, clear and replenish all of the chakras from the Crown down to the Root. Grey I bring into the Crown Chakra healing as it is the colour of Wisdom, Serenity, Balance and Calmness. Painting with a blend of these colours to create a galaxy scene is a great activity for Crown Chakra healing.

Elemental Healing: The element for the Crown Chakra is Cosmos. However since the Crown Chakra work is enhanced by connecting to all of the Chakras, balancing the Cosmos with all the other elements of Air, Water, Fire and Earth is helpful. Grounding before and after Crown chakra work is important to maintain the balance.

Journaling/Higher Self Connection Healing: The Higher Self is the root of our subjective consciousness and the Gateway for each of us into the Collective Consciousness – another term for Source Energy, Web of Life or God. In trying to understand this it helps if you can do this visualisation – imagine a tree with its roots going deep into the Earth and its branches reaching high into the sky. The Tree takes physical form and also extracts nourishment from the Earth as well as Water. It takes in warmth and light from the Sun and it releases Air as part of its respiratory cycle – therefore the tree is connected to all of the elements. Picture in your mind the chemical reactions that take place within the tree to make all these process of respiration, photosynthesis, growth, nourishment and expansion – this is what connects the tree to the element of the Cosmos. Picture the energy moving through the tree as all of these things happen within it, see the energy giving life to the tree, making it transform and grow – now in your mind remove the roots – remove the trunk – remove the leaves – remove the branches – all that is left is the energy – the link to the Cosmos that gave the tree the capacity for growth and expansion – this is the same energy as our Higher Self.

Ego Separation: Reading the quote I have included above from the amazing poem Riverbed by Guante (please follow the link above to take a listen to this its phenomenal and one of my favourite things in the world) the universe is the picture with the resolution of 1 trillion by 1 trillion, when the Crown Chakra is balanced we are fully aware of the Collective Consciousness and our connection to it. But the Ego is a stubborn part of our psyche. Despite the full picture having a resolution of a trillion x a trillion Ego steps in and only allows the CPU (central processing unit – ie our psyche/brain) to have a resolution of 1×1. This leads to the belief that we are separate from the Collective Consciousness which in turn leads to a sense of isolation and disconnection. If we go back to the analogy of the tree, Ego would immediately return the picture of the tree back into our minds. Then Ego would go on to solidify the tree to make sure we remain unaware of all the amazing chemical reactions taking place inside it. Ego would allow for the elements of Earth, Air, Water and Fire – these are necessary for physical and material survival – but the Spiritual and Cosmic part of the tree would be hidden and denied. The implications of this then leads to the belief that the tree was solitary and not a part of a wider universe with intricate systems connecting each of us to literally everything and everyone. The Ego doesn’t want to know about anyone but itself. While the Ego is not entirely a negative thing – it is necessary to help us with our relationships to others and to give us the drive to have goals and the motivation to action them – if the Ego and it’s perceived separation from the Collective is given full reign then we as individuals will become more and more disconnected and our need for other’s approval becomes all important. Seclusion becomes a threat to our well being and solitude becomes isolating and lonely. So it is necessary to practise detachment, while in Third Eye detachment work we focus on detaching from the outside world to avoid them holding sway over our inner world; in this instance we detach from a inner part of ourselves in order to connect in a healthy and balanced way with the outer world and the Universe as a whole.

Crystals: Crystals for Crown Chakra work are Amethyst, Fluorite, Howlite, Charoite, Spirit Quartz, Sugilite, Labradorite, White Calcite, Clear Quartz.

Essential Oils: Lavender, Violet, Frankincense, Melissa.

Angelic Healing: In this meditation I will be bringing in my main guide Archangel Metatron to help connect us to our Higher Selves and Archangel Sandalphon to anchor us to the Earth and keep us grounded. Archangel Raguel is the Archangel of Justice and balance so it is fitting that I will be recording this meditation with the energies of the Libra Full Moon. Archangel Raguel also helps to settle conflict and he keeps lower energies in check so he is perfect to call in to assist in the process of Ego separation.

Third Eye Chakra Healing.

The Third Eye chakra is located in the centre of the eyebrows and is sometimes called the ‘Brow’ chakra. It governs the head, face and sinuses, ears and lower part of the brain and the pineal gland.

The third eye chakra is our centre of intuition and governs how we perceive and process the world around us, how we evaluate and establish our beliefs, how our psyche functions and how we understand all of what we experience in life. It also governs our hidden/ shadow inner world. It can be seen as the veil that connects the material and spiritual world.

When our Third Eye chakra is balanced we are able to effectively discern and decipher the world around us and live life in accordance to our own best interests. This discernment and decipherment pertains specifically to identifying our own ‘truth’ in any matter – and the truth for one person may be very different to that of another.

When our third eye is balanced we have the ability to detach from situations on a mental and emotional level and use our inner compass to guide us towards what is right for us. The third eye is what some might call our ‘sixth sense’. When we successfully harness this energy of detachment we can remain centred and focused even in the midst of chaotic energy. We are able to act appropriately to situations without reacting in an emotional way – I call it Eye of the Storm energy. It takes some practice and it takes a lot of focus and energy to apply this in life if you are not naturally inclined towards compartmentalism, yet it is worth practicing detachment in situations that would typically cause stress, distress, anger or conflict. Self care and patience are important here as well as integrating this work alongside the other chakras in our system.

Our third eye connects us mentally to the world of archetypes and universal symbolism and allows us to perceive the world on an abstract, energetic level. When our third eye is balanced we can understand ourselves and how we function as part of the web of life. The concept of Consciousness on a collective level is recognised and we can easily make the connection to the web of life and our place within and influence upon it.

Manifesting what we want is linked strongly to third eye work. Our thoughts create our reality and it is through our thoughts that we communicate with the universe. Our third eye can be seen as the magnet that pulls towards us and into reality whatever it is that we are manifesting – consciously or unconsciously, good or bad.

All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, … we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is just a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.’

Bill Hicks.

Symptoms of Third Eye Imbalance.

  • Headaches.
  • Eye problems.
  • Sinus problems.
  • Hayfever.
  • Problems using your imagination.
  • Inability to comprehend symbolism, archetypes and abstract concepts.
  • Lack of concentration.
  • Lack of intuition.
  • Unable to detach from situations emotionally.
  • Sense of disconnection from the Universe/Collective Consciousness leading to a view of the world that supports dualistic consciousness as opposed to unity consciousness.
  • Inability to acknowledge emotions on a mental level leading to emotional suspension and boundaries being placed unnecessarily.
  • Coldness and lack of understanding.
  • Selfishness and Shallowness.
  • Ignorance.
  • Obssession.

Third Eye Chakra Healing:

Colour: Indigo, purple and violet are the colours to work with for third eye work. Indigo is a great colour to connect to while doing shadow work, it can help us to perceive our hidden aspects and bring our fears into the open to be acknowledged and faced. Indigo helps us to connect to our true understanding of life and see our own truth in all things. Violet and Purple are the colours of imagination and spirituality, of connection to the metaphysical world and Indigo combines these colours with Dark Blue which is the colour of communication – so with Indigo we are communicating with our inner world and psyche and since our inner world and psyche are governed by the universal archetypes we are also communicating with the collective consciousness/spirit world.

Elemental Healing: The element for the Third Eye is Cosmos. Our Third Eye acts as the veil between the physical and metaphysical world and so through connection to our third eye we can connect to the Cosmic element which in turn helps to heal the Third Eye.

Journaling/Detachment Healing: Stress, fear, anxiety, grief, anger and all other negative emotions all serve to create blockages within our chakras. Our Third Eye becomes blocked each time we allow the outer world to impact on our mental health. If our emotions are being manipulated – intentionally or not, by other people this goes on to further affect our Third Eye as we allow our behaviour, thoughts, emotions and choices to be determined by factors outside of ourselves. Detachment Healing allows us to create an inner space that only we can access where we can link into our own intuition, see situations as they truly are within OUR reality and perception of the world and to then act in accordance to our OWN truth and not be triggered, manipulated, coerced, deceived, tricked, pushed, bullied, guilt tripped or forced to react or behave in ways that we are not fully comfortable with. We can align our energy and master our Selves when we master the art of Detachment healing. This is an ongoing process and involves the act of releasing control and surrender in a sometimes continual manner. This is not something that we can master overnight, but with consistency and practise, patience and self love.

Crystals: Amethyst, Fluorite, Moonstone, Lapiz Lazuli, Sodalite, Labradorite, Ammonite.

Essential Oils: Frankincense, Lavender, Jasmine, Neroli, Violet Leaf.

Peacock Spirit Healing: Peacock energy helps us to stand in our own truth and hold an air of detached grace. Peacock feathers are beautiful energy clearing tools which I use in my healing sessions to cleanse the aura and have been used in the ancient Vedic practice of Jharra healing, where the practitioner sweeps Peacock feathers over the client while chanting specific mantras, for millennia. Peacock feathers also have the beautiful eye pattern and the colours of them also relate to those of Third Eye healing so this spirit animal energy is perfect for Third Eye healing work.

Angelic Healing: Archangel Zadkiel can be called in to help us to connect to both the energy of Surrender and the Violet Flame, both of which can help with Third Eye work. Third Eye blockages need a powerful yet positive force such as the Violet Flame to help remove old thought patterns and the Violet Flame will transmute any negative energies. Archangel Raziel can help us to see our truth, He is the Archangel of secrets and mysteries and in this way he helps us to recognise the truth of any matter including our own truth which is the crux of Third Eye work. Again Archangel Jophiel can help us to recognise the importance of Self love and care. Archangel Michael is a great energy to call on for protection in any spiritual work, visualising Archangel Michael covering us with an energetic shield helps to protect us and he is the holder of the sword of truth which can cut through anything, including lies or deceit to get to the truth of the matter so his energy can help in this way.

Trusting in Divine Timing…

…and coming to terms with regret.

What’s the use in regrets?
They’re just things we haven’t done yet.
What are regrets?
They’re just lessons we haven’t learned yet.

Beth Orton – ‘Sweetest Decline’.

Today I have been pondering the idea of Divine Timing and the idea of having no regrets. I have found that I have had to change and shift my perception of regrets recently. I used to believe that it was useless to try to not have regrets, that regrets were not things you could easily dismiss as unhelpful or a waste of time. I felt that in my own life there are so many things that I regret that it was practically impossible to escape them. Things that I regretted not having, or not doing, or things that I regretted doing and wished I could erase from the reality of my life would haunt me on almost a daily basis.

Most recently the thing that had been rolling around in my mind as a regret of sorts was the sense that I have finally found my calling and know what it is that I want to achieve and have clear goals that I am striving for – but that this hasn’t happened for me until I am well into my 40’s. There was the sense of regret that the tarot cards I was just getting to grips with in my early 20’s were put away and forgotten for a huge chunk of my life -that I didn’t pursue my deep fascination in astrology until this point in my life. That I didn’t recognise that spiritual development and healing was my calling until now.

Recently though, with the contemplation of divine timing and the spiritual work I have been doing over the last few months, I have finally realised that the things in my life that I would previously have called a regret are now becoming hugely profound spiritual lessons. When these things crop up for me I have learned to understand that it is all part of the spiritual work I am undertaking, it is ALWAYS connected and ALWAYS serves to help me learn, grow and expand spiritually.

I treated myself to a new Oracle Deck this week called ‘The Wild Offering Oracle Deck‘. Its a 52 card deck and I have had it less than a week and yet already one card seems to be coming out more than the others and that is the card of ‘Divine Timing‘. The writing on this card says:

The Divine brings things in the timing that we need. Nothing comes before we’re prepared, nor leaves too early. May I always trust Your perfect and holy timing, dear Lord!’

This little prayer triggered in me a bit of an epiphany in that I was never supposed to discover my life path and have this clear vision and goal for what it is that I want – not until this point in my life. I needed to experience all the things that I used to call regrets as they are now the fuel that feeds my spiritual growth! It seems like such a simple thing to realise and yet I often find that the most profound realisations have a real simplicity about them.

Finally I can contemplate regrets not as something that will forever taunt and haunt me and make me wish I could re live my life, but as the lessons that they truly are. If you are struggling with regrets and perhaps can’t see the lesson within the things you see as regrets, try to have faith and allow diving timing to play out. Try to trust that some day you will see the value and the lesson that your experience holds for you. If this creates friction and resistance in you, bring it back to simplicity and release it remembering when it comes down to it the Universe really does have your back!

Throat Chakra Healing.

The Throat Chakra is located above your heart chakra and governs the mouth, tongue and neck. It is the chakra that deals with communication, expression and speech.

When the Throat Chakra is balanced and open we have the ability to clearly, concisely and confidently express our needs and wants, with both conviction and integrity. We are true to our Selves and can express our authentic Self with a grounded, heart centred and thought out approach.

When our Throat chakra is balanced we are able to clearly formulate and establish our goals and what it is we wish to achieve in life. We can speak up for ourselves, communicate with others with ease and use our communication skills effectively to create and maintain relationships, and to get us where it is we wish to be in life.

As it is one of the higher chakras the element for the Throat Chakra is Cosmos or Ether but I also like to work with the element of Air as this is the element that is associated with communication. Bringing in the element of Air can help to clear blockages and link us to our heart chakra to ensure that we speak from a heart centred space. Breath work can also help to awaken kundalini energy within us and this energy will ensure our throat and all of our chakras are charged and open while we focus on clearing and opening and balancing the throat chakra, this ensures we are grounded and in touch with our emotions, have the courage needed to put yourself in the vulnerable position of showing the world your authentic self and that you are connected to your higher self through your brow and crown chakra.


Symptoms of Throat Chakra Imbalance.

  • Being overly critical of others or yourself.
  • Inability to express yourself.
  • Fear or anxiety of being ridiculed or judged.
  • Feeling misunderstood by those around you.
  • Feeling uncomfortable communicating your wishes, desires, needs or thoughts.
  • Speaking too freely – saying things that you later regret or don’t mean.
  • Lying and being deceitful.
  • Being unable to set clear goals.
  • Being unable to establish what you wish to achieve.
  • Oral fixations – constant need to be eating/drinking/chewing gum/biting nails/smoking.
  • Physical manifestations – sore or swollen throat, persistent coughing, neck pain, headaches, tension in jaw, trouble with thyroid, mouth ulcers, gum disease.

Throat Chakra Healing.

Colour: The colour associated with the Throat chakra is Blue. Blue is the colour of peace, linked to the element of Air. Blue represents communication and a calm mind. Connect to this colour by wearing blue clothes, painting with the different shades of blue, enjoying being outside when the sky is clear, especially walking up high in hills, mountains or standing out on balconies of high buildings.

Elemental Healing: The element associated with the Throat chakra is Ether or Cosmos. I believe that the element of Air also needs to be brought in to help cleanse the energy cord that links all of the chakras.
Linking the base chakra up to the crown and higher chakras helps to connect to your higher self while remaining grounded. Linking to your base, heart and third eye chakra is important while working on your throat chakra to ensure you can communicate from a place of conviction, love and integrity.

Journaling/Authentic Self Healing: When we are courageous enough to step into our own truth and express who we really are without sugar coating or hiding anything, we are living as our authentic Self and from this space of honesty and open communication we can then become clear on what our purpose in life is and begin to set our goals that are in line with what we truly want. Journaling – writing down our intentions and working out the steps we need to take to attain what we want. Expressing our true feelings and working through them as they arise – is an important part of this process.

Crystals: Angelite, Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, Blue Lace Agate, Aquamarine, Sodalite.

Essential Oils: Blue Chamomile, Lavender, Peppermint, Bergamot, Geranium, Neroli, Tea Tree.

Archangel Healing: For my throat chakra meditation I will again be calling on 3 Archangels. Archangel Michael is the Archangel associated with the Throat Chakra. He comes through on the blue ray and is the Archangel of Protection. Archangel Gabriel helps us to step into our truth and express ourselves with the energy of integrity, and Archangel Zadkiel to bring in the Violet Flame which will cleanse and balance all of our chakras which along with the kundalini energy to link up our base chakra to our heart, throat and third eye will result in a really powerful healing energy.

Heart Chakra Healing.

The heart chakra is the 4th chakra in the 7 chakra system and it is located, not in the space where the heart is but in the centre of the chest area.

Our heart chakra helps us to connect to the qualities of compassion and empathy that are vital in the development of healthy relationships. If our heart chakra is balanced we are open and receptive to the emotions of those around us and can accept and integrate our own emotions with grace. An open and balanced heart chakra allows us to recognise and appreciate all of the beauty of life that surrounds us – even in the most simple of tasks. We are better able to live within the flow of life, accepting, adapting and responding to whatever comes our way without the need to change, fix, or control people or situations. We find we are better able to live peacefully and harmoniously and work towards our own growth and encourage growth in those around us. We are forgiving, loving, receptive, adaptable, empathic and devoted.

The elements associated with the Heart Chakra are Air and I personally include Water in heart chakra work. Air to link to the growth, transformative, and adaptable aspects of the heart chakra and Water to link to the emotional, compassionate, forgiving, empathic, accepting, living in the flow aspects of the heart chakra. The heart is the space where we can tap into the life force, the Chi which is akin to our spiritual blood that is within every cell of our being and is always in a state of flow and movement. It is the central point between our lower, more Earthy chakras and the higher more Spiritual chakras. Our heart chakra offers us a place where we can connect to the Unity consciousness/Source energy, it is where we can experience the unconditional love that the universe holds for us and where we can begin to integrate this loving energy into our own personal energies, our lives, our relationships and our experiences. When this energy becomes blocked or out of balance it has a knock on affect to all of the chakras within our system. A blocked heart chakra results in us living outside of the energy of love and within the opposing energy – that of fear.

Symptoms of Heart Chakra Imbalance:

  • Inability to let go of past hurts.
  • Inability or unwillingness to forgive.
  • Feeling as though you are separate from everyone and everything – no sense of connection.
  • Being overly critical of yourself or others.
  • Feeling like you need to control, fix or change people or circumstances.
  • Unable to accept – others differences; things that don’t go your way; things that have hurt you; things that you can’t control; how people feel or behave; this list could go on.
  • Lack of compassion for others.
  • Lack of empathy for others.
  • Difficulty in relationships – jealousy or insecurity, co dependency, being emotionally unavailable or withdrawn, being afraid to commit.
  • Lack of compassion for yourself.
  • Inability to see yourself as a person who deserves to receive love.
  • Unable to set or maintain personal boundaries.

Heart Chakra Healing:

Colour: Green and Pink are the colours that resonate with the heart chakra. Green is the colour to work with to help with the growth, transformative, forgiving, calming and healing aspects of the heart chakra. Pink helps us to connect to the energy of unconditional love and to open and expand our heart chakras. Pink is a very high vibrational colour and connecting to this colour is very healing and can help bring a sense of harmony and tranquillity.

Elemental Healing: Air is the element associated with the heart chakra. Air will give you space to grow, for your heart space to expand and unfurl as you connect to, balance and open up to its energy. I also like to work with the element of water for heart chakra healing work, I feel the feminine energy helps when deep heart chakra healing is needed and can help us to cope with issues of forgiveness, washing away and cleansing old pain. This can help us to begin to connect with and live in the flow of acceptance when there may be resistance, before calling in the element of Air to help disperse this energy and really allow us to surrender into our heart.

Journaling/Inner Child Healing: Our inner child resides within our heart space. This child is the authentic Self, the You that you would have been if life had been constantly perfect and you were able to grow with complete and utter devotion from both parents, never experiencing adversity or difficulty. When we as children experience trauma, abuse, neglect, abandonment, witness stressful or tragic events, live within a family that holds no boundaries (enmeshment), or are lacking in receiving any of the 4 A’s (attention, approval, affection & affirmation), then the inner child (the Self that you were intended to be, your authentic Self) becomes fragmented from your actual Self as you shift your behaviour to fit in to the world around you, live up to the expectations of others and attempt to receive the attention and love that you need. As an adult incorporating heart chakra work with inner child work can have the affect of connecting to the energy of unconditional love while at the same time offering your inner child this love from yourself. You thereby aid in helping your inner child to mend the fragmented parts that were lost as you tried fit in in your world and receive the love and validation that we crave as children. This is called ‘Reparenting’ your inner child as we take responsibility for our own inner child we can once again come closer to knowing and being our authentic Self, free from trauma and negative affects of childhood experiences.

Crystals: Rose quartz, Aventurine, Malachite, Jade, Rhodochrosite, Peridot, Pink Tourmaline, Green Tourmaline, Rhodonite, Emerald, Bloodstone, Amazonite.

Essential Oils: Rose is the best oil to use for heart chakra work. I feel that this oil is the only one you really need but you might like to include any of the following – Sandalwood, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Lavender.

Archangel Healing: Archangel Raphael comes through on the green ray and is the Master Healer, Archangel Chamuel comes through on the Pink ray and can help us develop peaceful relationships and Archangel Jophiel can help us with aspects of self love and care so I feel calling in these 3 Archangels for help with heart chakra work is a powerful healing combination.

Solar Plexus Chakra Healing.

The Solar Plexus is located in the centre of the torso. Physiologically the solar plexus is a nerve centre which plays a very important role in regulating the functioning of the body’s organs, metabolism and the nervous system, in particular how we respond to stress. Energetically the Solar Plexus Chakra helps us to tap into our creativity, our warrior energy, our confidence and self-esteem.

When our solar plexus is balanced we are confident, but not arrogant; assertive, but not aggressive; creative, driven and able to stand up for ourselves. We can put ideas into action and achieve our goals.

Solar Plexus energy is masculine and fiery in nature, working with the Solar Plexus is often a transformational process. The energy invoked in Solar Plexus work is like the Phoenix rising from the ashes burning with fresh creativity, ready to initiate the next chapter of life, replenished and renewed.

Symptoms of Solar Plexus Imbalance:

  • Lack of confidence leading to fears, anxiety and low self esteem.
  • Over confidence leading to arrogance.
  • Fear of rejection and abandonment.
  • Inability to set and/or maintain personal boundaries.
  • Unable to advocate for, defend, stand up for or assert Oneself.
  • Aggressively asserting Oneself at the expense of others.
  • Being domineering, controlling or intimidating.
  • Allowing yourself to be intimidated, controlled or used.
  • Being a people pleaser.
  • Being unable or unwilling to ask for help – due to anxiety, over independence or unbalanced self-pride.
  • Inability to act upon our thoughts, ideas and goals due to inertia, apathy or lack of confidence.

Solar Plexus Chakra Healing:

Colour: The colour to work with while doing Solar Plexus healing is yellow. This is the colour that uplifts and brings lighter, higher vibrational energy. Linking to the colour yellow can be done in many ways including eating yellow food, wearing yellow clothes and jewellery, burning yellow candles, visualisation during meditation or yoga, drawing or painting with the different shades of yellow.

Fire Elemental Healing: The Solar Plexus chakra can be described with the analogy of the ‘fire in your belly’. Incorporating fire into your solar plexus work can lend a strength to and intensify the process. Fire is by nature intense and the Solar Plexus responds well to intense energies as this is your energetic power centre. Fire can be visualised to cleanse and purify your Solar Plexus, as well as to ignite, empower and/or regenerate your personal power and restore balance to the chakra after doing inner work related to Solar Plexus issues. Burning candles, bonfires, fire scrying, sun salutations, spending time in the sun, or focusing on any kind of creative activity are all great for connecting with the fire element.

Journaling/Father Wound Healing: For me personally, this is the big one. Father wounds have affected me my entire life and still do to this day. Issues relating to fear of abandonment or rejection, lack of support and protection, lack of self esteem, lack of confidence, holding the false belief that you are unlovable, undeserving of love, unworthy and not important enough to be a priority for others and therefore yourself – all of these are issues that often arise from Father wounds. Further to this, issues such as embarrassment, humiliation, guilt and shame can have Father wounding at the root of them due to the fact that many situations that arise in a person with these types of wounds are simply not situations a person with healthy supportive relationships with their father would ever allow themselves to be in. I have had flashbacks while doing this work that have brought back moments of pure shame, embarrassment and humiliation to me. Working through these, understanding why these flashbacks are occurring, forgiving myself for allowing this to happen and recognising the wounds that led to those behaviours and situations; alongside my own inner child reparenting work, has for me allowed my healing to finally begin – at the start of my 45th year! In day to day life, noticing what triggers affect you and spark reactions of anger or fear and how this relates to your Father wound, acknowledging that this needs to be faced and worked through and journaling to allow yourself the opportunity to speak to your higher self about these issues can aid the healing process.

Crystals: Crystals that work with the solar plexus are Citrine, Tigers Eye, Ametrine, Yellow Jasper, Golden Calcite and Fire element crystals such as Fire Agate.

Archangel Healing: My meditation will be calling upon 3 Archangels – Archangel Gabriel will help us to unite our Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energies. Archangel Raphael will be called upon to send healing relating to Father wounds and Archangel Raziel will help to ignite our creativity and give us a sense of purpose moving forward. His Rainbow ray will offer us healing that incorporates all of the colours of the rainbow and he will ignite for us our creative spark.

Essential oils: Lemon, Lemongrass, Bergamot, and Grapefruit are all uplifting oils that work well with the solar plexus energy. Also masculine, spicy oils such as Ginger, Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamom and Black Pepper are all oils that can help connect to the masculine/fire aspect of the Solar Plexus.
