So I spent the good portion of the morning listening to a radio show hosted by Robert Ohotto. What a powerful session. What an amazing man! I have done a lot of studying over the last five years of my life. I have prayed for spiritual teachers and I am so thankful for the teachers I have encountered thus far. (such as Robert) They all have brought such profound, life changing healing into my life. I only hope that with what I have learned on my own spiritual path, I am able to be a teacher to others who seek healing.
Everyone has their life story. Most of us have lived through some type of trauma and continue to live with that trauma tucked away at our core. I am a child of quite a bit of trauma, from parents with addiction problems, being sexually abused by a family member, abandonment, verbal abuse, being pursued by men who only want one thing, being called thunder thighs because I am an above average girl, I could go on but I think you get the picture. By the grace of my Great Spirit I have been able to find the blessings in the awful things that happened to me as a child/teenager and create a path which connects with my souls path. Because of these traumas I am here, searching for answers, studying all types of religion, spiritualities, my higher self, angels, crystal healing, self realization studies, yoga and so on. It is through these studies and internal shadow work (although so very painful at times) that has brought me through to a realization that I am ENOUGH! ME? Yes ME. I am enough, I am worthy, I am love, I am light. No matter what choices I made in my life, no matter my current situation, no matter how much or how little I pray or serve others I am loved and on the right path of my souls journey.
Don't allow anyone to tell you, you have to live a certain way of life to be worthy of good things, to be worthy of the love of God (whichever form you choose). As Robert Ohotto said, Be unconditional with yourself, you are enough! Step out of this shame based culture society has created. If you feel shame follow that thread to your core and become an alchemist of it. Rewire it's affect on you. This is where spiritual teachers step in to assist in your healing. I am not saying we don't have to live mindfully, yes be respectful and do no harm, but don't feel you have to prove yourself for the love of the divine, you are already worthy!
Listening to Robert this morning has stirred something inside of me to create from a Nutritional Practitioner, Crystal Healer perspective; workshops, or personal packages which encompass a
Self-Compassion/Love Wellness Transformation.
What this looks like to me: Spirit, Mind, Body Coaching over a period of
4-6 months or longer. We look at the entire picture and touch on core aspects of healing. #1 Your own soul journey, #2 Self Compassion and Unconditional Love #3 Nutrition Sessions (we must feed our body love with the right mind and right diet) #4 Introduction to energy centres in the body and what they govern #5 Crystal healing education and sessions. #6 Connecting with whichever Divine form you choose this could even be your higher self.
This is still in the works, however, I wanted to share with you how having spiritual teachers will allow your soul purpose to arise and fill you with compassion and understanding (for yourself and others). Put you on your life purpose with ideas on how to live to your fullest and deepest potential. Self love is the first and foremost tool to any kind of healing. This is my passion, this is my soul purpose, to teach you how to be in love with yourself, with your soul, with you body and your mind.
I would love to hear from you. Start a conversation, ask questions, make comments. The floor is open. Sending you all love and light, Namaste
I found this beautiful piece of Labradorite today at The Gem Expo. Labradorite is known as a tool for healers, shamans and divine light workers. This beautiful piece helps increase hand sensitivity in healers or those who use their hands to heal. It can also quiet a racing mind, decrease self negative thinking, determine the root cause of an issue while banishing fears and insecurities. I use this stone to enhance the throat chakra, allowing for open communication, self expression and increasing energy flow through the other chakras. Do you feel like you can't express your truth? If so, perhaps Labradorite might help you open up and speak what you think and feel.
In the middle of winter in Canada... it's extremely cold outside and the only thing I want is to bathe in the sunshine. It energizes my body, fills me with healing and warmth. So why not give that same energy to my crystals? Yes people look at me like I"m insane, "They are rocks Sarah" Wellll, from the time I was a little girl, I have treated everything as if it had a soul. I believe everything whether is has a pulse or not, is alive. Alive with energy and vibration. Even the food I ate, I would talk to it. Every wonder why kids play and talk with their food? Did you ever feel bad for the last scoop of food on your plate, did it ever feel left out? Our food is filled with purpose. It's job is to nourish our bodies and give us energy, so doesn't it have energy itself? Surely it's alive too. (Again the strange look)
Setting my crystals out in the sun, they inhale the suns energy and guess what, their purpose for healing is enhanced! They take that sun energy and as I place a stone or crystal on my clients body or in their energy field, the sun shines upon them. How cool is that?
Do you need a little bit of sun energy? Come try it out! Just mention you read this blog and receive 10% off your first visit.

As part of my Crystal Healing, I have created a sacred space in my house where I can meditate, create crystal grids for manifesting, healing for myself or others. This is the place I come when I speak to the Divine, when I need to cry or surrender worries. Creating a space like this has increased my connection to the Divine because every time I walk past it I am filled with its power, with the presence of the angels that surround me and the ever knowing faith that I am not alone to tackle the world on my own. I encourage you to create a space that speaks to you. What items in your house are sacred? Where in your house do you find peace?
A few of the items I have here:
Citrine, Bismuth, Clear quartz points, amethyst, rose quartz, desert rose, selenite, carnelian, red jasper, healing turtles, etc.
Tingsha Chimes/Bells which help to reset the vibration of the crystals and empower them to resonate stronger.
Palo Santos wood, which is used to clear negative energy from the space and crystals.
Chakra affirmations taped to my tree, which I repeat when I am in need of balance.
Be creative with your space and do what feels right for you. There are no set rules, just listen to your heart, it already knows.
The Heart Chakra
When you look in the mirror, what do you say to yourself? Have you listened in to your thoughts or words? Do you appreciate your beautiful eyes or do you just look at the wrinkles beside them? The heart chakra is about loving yourself unconditionally. Detaching from those negative tones will allow your heart to expand, creating space for more love to rush in. When you look at another person, do you find their impurities? Most often we do not notice them in another person, so allow yourself to treat You the same. Do not wait for your body to be perfect in order for it to gain your love. Release all judgements and just love, just love.
Love is the essence of life. It is the ultimate healer, the most powerful teacher, the inspiration for amazing work. Love allows us to treat others and things with great respect and honour. An open heart feels compassion and empathy for both self and others. The hearts task is to find balance in all relationships; mind and body, self and other, light and shadow, masculine and feminine. The result of this balance is peace.
Take a deep breath into the belly, allow this air to fill every corner of your heart. Allow it to cleanse your hurts, clear your mind and dissolve all blocks that keep your heart closed. Release the ego and allow the heart to take over. Fall in love with life itself, not with attachments to people or objects.
Practice gratitude daily, find the 5 things you are thankful for in your day, this alone expands the heart and allows more to be thankful for, to flow into your life.
Forgiveness, is sometimes a hard pill to swallow, but if someone has hurt you, do not allow them to dwell in your heart as anger. Forgive them, release the hooks that pain has caused your heart. Find peace and open your heart to love once more.
I love myself and others unconditionally.
My heart is open to receive the energy of love.
I honour my connection to all that is.
How do you feel about your Self Worth? Do you take care of yourself? Take yourself out on a date? Do you create healthy boundaries with people you interact with? Are you deserving of the best?
You are absolutely deserving
Where there is no energy flow, do not go. Realize it might not be the right path at this time. Learning under any circumstances, helps increase one's power and strength. Remember to laugh, love and take are of yourself. Love cleanses and feeds energy. Validate yourself, it will build self esteem. Inner self worth has initially come through validation from the outer world, which after awhile holds little importance. In this Chakra you work towards accepting your own special qualities.
In this Chakra it governs our competitiveness, boundaries and responsibility. There is balance to be learned to ensure the EGO is not overriding. Addictions are a means of escaping from responsibilities and commitments in the outside world. This covers our deep-seated feelings of inadequacy, aggression, and low self-esteem. Perhaps an internalized belief that you are not good enough to live a life of freedom, joy, and fulfillment.
You are absolutely good enough
We are what we eat, therefore the type of food we eat represents the level of care and respect we have for ourselves. It is in our digestive systems that we find the first signs of discontent or conflict. Consider Food as love, Love yourself, Love good food for your body.
I am worthy to live my life to the fullest, without fear or guilt, listening only to my own inner voice. I AM WORTHY.
To exercise this Chakra:
Take long, deep, slow breaths into the pit of your belly, observe how your belly rises and falls with the breath. When you are feeling safe, sound and secure with your breath imagine a fiery beacon of light just above your belly button. Imagine with each breath this light grows larger and spreads to every cell in your body, expand it beyond your cells and outside your body completely surrounding you. Feel your sense of power, and self worth. When you feel your light expanding beyond the outer layer of your skin bring your presence back into the room. Slowly open your eyes and carry this light with you wherever you go. Share it with those you encounter, it's contagious!
Do you know what drives you in your choices? Are you actively seeking or passively seeking what you truly want? Do you know what you truly want or do not want? The Sacral Chakra is associated with creativity and realizing what you want for your life. The positive aspects of this chakra are Sexuality, Procreation, Playful energy, Desire, Pleasure, Feelings and Relationships. When in balance we find a balance between being needed and being independent, assertive and submissive, giving and receiving as well as a time to be vulnerable. Our relationship with people, things and money are all healthy. Have you let go of your past or is it still defining who you are? Have you learned to communicate and set healthy boundaries in your relationships? If there is a malfunction within this chakra there may arise sexual problems, impotence, frigidity, uterine and bladder disease, circulation system issues, guilt or cutting off of all emotional feelings.
"I respect my needs and the needs of others in my relationships and will act accordingly, I will come to a place of balance and equality in all my relationships"
This affirmation can be repeated daily, as a way of opening and balancing your sacral chakra.
The element that governs this chakra is water, to begin your meditation, sit quietly and drink a glass of water. Feel it move into your body and refresh your mouth, throat and stomach. Imagine this water floats through your body, veins, muscles and digestive system. Imagine that the water draws all negativity you want to release from your body and your life. Think of the emotions or things you would like to remove from your life. See them flowing out of you with the water through a chord which feeds into a stream or river. This stream or river carries all the negativity away from you. Let go and release all of the tension, the emotions, relationships that do not serve you anymore. Now think about what you would like in your life. With a flow of a waterfall imagine all that you would like to appear in your life is coming over the waterfall and filling your body from the top of your head to your toes. The blessings fill your entire body, you feel them flow through you. This water fall pushes the negative even further away and fills the stream or river with fresh positive aspects of your life. Remain still here and be thankful for the blessings you have received. What ever your heart desires... so it shall be. Release negative to the Divine, allow the Divine to fill it back up with your desires. All you have to do is know what you want and it will come to you. Believe, you deserve this, Feel.... and so it is.....

If you are new to Meditation and The Chakras, The root is a good place to start. I feel as with most situations in life, we all long for roots, stability, strength and security. Are you feeling hopeless, disconnected, powerless? Do you suffer from symptoms such as allergies, colds and flu often, auto-immune disorders, arthritis, inflammation, sciatica, or obesity? Check in with your emotions, how is your sense of belonging? Without a stable connection or belonging, biologically our sleep, diet, hormones, cycles and stress levels become disordered. Do you spend a lot of time in a space of fearfulness or worry when it comes to survival? The purpose of boosting the root chakra is to feel a sense of Stillness, Security and Stability. The following affirmation can be repeated several times a day until these symptoms pass.
"I am fully aware of my position here on earth and I know that my basic needs will always be met"
Find a comfortable place to sit or lay down and relax. With your back straight and both feet planted firmly on the floor, breathe deeply through your nose and deep down into your bottom belly. Feel the breath fill your belly, listen to it as it expands and contracts inside your body. Feel the weight of your body, how it pulls towards the floor, connecting you with the centre of the earth. Visualize the earths core, it is a large magnet. From the base of your spine imagine an anchor hooked into that magnet. Imagine a ruby red chord coming into the top of your head all the way down your body connecting to the anchor. That red chord roots us to the earths great energy filling our bodies with beautiful clear ruby red light. Allow this light to remove all stress, insecurity, tension or dis-ease. You are safe, you are secure, your are still. Like an old tree with roots deep into the earth, you are the same, strong and able to withstand the storms of life. You always make the right decisions for yourself. You may ask Archangel Uriel to be with you for guidance away from the dark places of the unknown or lack of direction. Continue listening to your breathe and release all questions, concerns and stress to the Universe, focus on the ruby red light filling your body. Stay here as long as you need to, once stillness has met your heart and mind, begin to come back to the present, slowly open your eyes, give thanks to the Universe for taking care of you and all your needs.
May the blessings of this meditation stay with you and remind you to be still in times of stress or worry. ~love~
Energy is everywhere, within us and surrounding us. Chakras are constantly receiving and transmitting energy. They are a part of intelligent Divine or Universal energy which distribute vital energy to our glands and organs in the body. Each of these 7 chakras are associated with specific organs, glands and emotional states. These chakras can be used to facilitate healing in the mind, body and soul. These chakras whether literal or metaphoric can assist in connecting the mind with the body. Beliefs and emotions are transformed into our state of health. Learning how energy transmits itself within the body can help us in learning to listen and understand the language of our body. If our body wants our attention, it will find ways to get it. Our emotions and beliefs manifest in our tissues and organs. All of the 7 chakras correspond with various life situations and challenges. As we learn about each of these chakras, it will empower our own personal power towards healing. Emotional, psychological and spiritual stress factors affect our health by manifesting into physical symptoms. Our health is affected by past and present relationships, trauma or memories as well as our current situations. Illness is an indication that there is a blockage in our energy flow. Balance of this energy is obtained through Chakra clearing and energizing. As part of my practice I have been gifted the tools to help clear and reenergize. If this is something you are interested in learning about, contact me for an initial chakra visit. I look forward to helping facilitate positive energy to move you towards your healing goals. ~love~
