Inhibited Expression – Sacral Chakra

The need for balance and harmony is imperative in this chakra as this chakra is responsible for how we express ourselves. All of our creativity, passion, inspired ideas, sexuality, appetite, goals, ambitions, and healthy relationships are born right here in the lower abdomen. If this chakra is not cleansed or balanced then we risk having all of these aspects of our lives thrown into turmoil.

We stand to lose our creative muses making our paintings less vibrant and our voices less song-like. Our care for the important things in life disappears and the goals we have held on to since childhood dissipates. We begin to take those of importance in our life for granted and abandon all the responsibilities that we once took pride in. We begin to feel self-conscious inhibiting us from freely expressing ourselves physical and sexually and slowly, but surely our outside world falls apart as the very essence of our beings suffers.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of symptoms you may feel if your root chakra is blocked:

  • Loss of creativity
  • Apathy 
  • Lack of ambition
  • Loss of libido
  • Increased or decreased appetite
  • Low self-esteem

Affirmation:

I create and express with ease.

The Importance of Being Grounded – Root Chakra

Being grounded is all about having control over your own energy and having the ability to choose how much of it you wish to share. More importantly, being grounded gives you the ability to lessen your sensitivity to the energy around you, be it people or even electronics.

The root chakra keeps you grounded. When you are grounded you are able to formulate cohesive thoughts and do not risk being scattered or having your head stuck up in the clouds. Grounded energy also leads to better sleep patterns and reduces the likelihood of experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression.  When you are grounded, you are in control of your own energy, and have the ability to block energy that does not belong to you. It is harder to push the buttons of a grounded person and get a reaction out of them, because you cannot manipulate energy that you do not have access to.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of symptoms you may feel if your root chakra is blocked:

  • You feel shaky
  • You feel wobbly or unsteady on your feet
  • You can’t help but daydream often or at the wrong times
  • You feel lightheaded
  • You feel scattered-brain
  • You have a hard time finishing your sentences
  • You keep forgetting what you were doing when you walk into another room
  • You are feeling irritable, agitated, or moody
  • When in large crowds you feel overwhelmed

Affirmation:

I bring my energy back into my body. I do not entertain that which does not belong to me. I am grounded.

The Fool’s Journey – The Chariot (VII)

IMG_3681

Because the Major Arcana represents the Fool’s Journey, or our journey here as Spirit in the human form, the Chariot is the last card in the Major Arcana that represents us in the developmental stage. This card marks the end of our development and signifies scope and potential. If we choose to move forward, then victory will be assured. Note, that because this is the end of the developmental stage, it does not mean that we cease to learn as shown through the rest of the Major Arcana.

The Sphinxes represent Osiris, Egyptian God of the Underworld, and also the God of regeneration, resurrection, and most important of all, transition. The Magician is the one that drives the Chariot. Notice that he does so through summoning his will through his wand.

The star canopy represents our connection to the Universe and reminds us that we are star dust. The two crescent moons are a reminder that we are influenced by that of the heavens.  The mercurial wings signify communication and is the tool that the Magician will take with him on his journey.

Remember that when you are on the Chariot, you will be pulled around by wild forces. As you will need power to gain control, you must ask yourself: where am I sending my will? Wild forces will pull you around if you don’t know where you’re going.

The Fool’s Journey – The Lovers (VI)

FullSizeRender 2

Archangel Gabriel, the messenger of the Gods comes in with fire, light and passion, which represents love. He is the messenger of the force and continuation of life.

Adam and Eve work in partnership with Eve representing the anima, that which brings IN new concepts and Adam representing the animus, that which brings OUT the concept Eve has brought in. In simpler terms, Adam will help bring the ideas that Eve created to fruition.

The Lovers represent the highest concept of duality throughout the Tarot and shows us that you can’t have one without the other. There must be balance and harmony, and this is shown through the interconnectedness of everything in this card.

The two stand in the Garden of Eden, which represents awareness of yourself as an individual, which is also the first step to enlightenment. Adam looks at Eve, which shows that the animus or the ego, must sometimes turn to the anima, or the subconscious and intuition. Eve turns to the Archangel showing that she recognises where she comes from, which is the Divine. Eve also stands in front of the Tree of Knowledge as seen with the serpent looking down. Because of this, in Tarot, a serpent or snake will usually represent knowledge when depicted on a card. Either you have the knowledge you seek, or there is something being withheld from you in the form of a secret.

This card enforces the importance of emotional responsibility, especially when it comes to the need to make an important decision.

In regards to relationships, one must remember that faith will often challenge the lovers, so it is essential to make good choices to stay on the right path. Relationships also have a reciprocal quality that leads to self-healing. Wholeness results from women embracing their maleness and from men embracing their femaleness.

Oracle – Live in Your Truth

IMG_3004

The Angel of Expression has been charged with the energy of abundance and manifestation from citrine and the energy of joyfulness from the sun. The Angel has created a safe space for you to live in your truth. Now would be a great time to creatively express yourself in ways that you have often left hidden from others, as well as to verbally express yourself in ways that you are often times hesitant to do. You can’t expect to get to where you want to go in life without being honest about the journey you wish to take in order to get there. Let the inner beauty and light spill out of your Spirit and choose to paint this world with it. Make the final decision to live unapologetically and without your self-imposed mental limitations. To speak the truth and not live it is fraud, but to speak the truth and live it is the most prized example of authenticity. Your Soul with thank you.

Love and Light,

Rainn

If you’ve come across this post today, then there is a part of you that has been feeling stuck in whatever situation that you are currently in. It is time for you to trust your gut feeling. If you are having trouble trusting your feelings about the situation, then consider cleansing your solar plexus.

Let go of the unfair hand that you have been dealt. At times, life can be cruel and unfair; however, these experiences are some of life’s best lessons and they make for a much wiser person. Learn to forgive yourself for not being wiser beforehand, which contributed to you being led into your situation, and vow to do it better next time. By accepting what is you will be able to move forward, and when you do appreciate all of life’s gift’s and help from those that wish to assist you.

Love and Light,

Rainn
