Chakra

Untitled35-e1393064216549

Chakras are the vibratory energy centers within the body and throughout the universe. The 7 main energy centers or wheels of radiating vibration can be used to awaken and balance emotions, actions, increase self-awareness and restore peace. In Sanskrit chakra means “wheel” as it is believed that the energy spirals and moves throughout the bodies of the human system. Chakras can effect the 7 bodies of the human energy body system. It is believed that each chakra is mapped or assigned to one of the 7 energy systems of the human body and can shift the human 12 auric energy fields.  An aura is a considered an energetic ‘space’ field existing around your body. It can be felt when you see a person and are drawn to them or immediately turn the other way because you can feel their ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ energy. Chakras can be seen as channels that can be tuned up, activated, and balanced  with crystals, essential oils, sound, higher frequency thoughts, mediation, mantras, and more.

Ancient Chakra and Yoga Wisdom

Our first people nations (indigenous aboriginals) understood that deeper connection with the stars, elements, earth, animals, the self and others determined wellbeing, fertility and prosperity. From the Twa pygmy the oldest humans on the planet also known as the little people who populated many parts of the planet their magical insight and higher societies such as the Olmec Mayan and Shang Xia dynasties were noted to practice forms of higher spiritual sciences such as yoga which later developed into forms of  martial arts.  It is noted that the ancient pygmy Twa from Africa (ancient Egypt – Khemet) crossed the Bering Strait into the Americas. Other ancient Africans crossed the Atlantic Ocean to enter the Americas at the Gulf of Mexico. Ancient aboriginal negroid phenotypes were the first modern humans on the planet dating back over 24 million years ago and older. These groups migrated out of Africa and became the first Indigenous groups to inhabit the Americas (South, Central, North) and other parts of the world. 

 

Some of our oldest cave inscriptions and stone glyphs depict men in the lotus position in higher states of spiritual union with the elemental and animal kingdoms. The Pashupati Seal discovered in Mohenjo-Daro, dated to c.2300 BCE. This ancient stone sculpture depicts the Hindu deity Shiva as shaman yogi seated in a yogic posture called Mulabandhasana.

The moola denotes “the beginning” the “root” the “base” “origin” “source” where the kundalini (serpent) energy from the root begins to lift upward toward the spine upward throughout the chakras to the crown chakra. Here is where one perfects the Self from the lower nature (chakras 1-3) to the heart (middle) and upward toward self mastery and ‘dominion’ over the lower nature into a god-self and enlightened state or christ consciousness.  This yoga spiritual system was practiced in ancient Egypt  (Kemet “Black land”). The awakened serpent was known as Uadjet (Wadjet/Uatchet) and was paired by the goddess Nekhbet the winged vulture.

Ancient India is known as the home or birthplace to modern day Yoga and its branches. Although archeologist and anthropologist state that Yoga is 5000 years old, we know that the original man is much older than a mere 5000 or 6000 years old. According to Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race (Cremo, 1993) the modern human bones were found in limestone dated as far as 24 million years ago in the Americas, the Lady of Guadeloupe. found in Guadeloupe, FWI (French West Indies).

The Indus Kush  indigenous Dravidian aboriginals of the pre Vedic civilization practiced ancient yoga predating the arrival of the Indo-European invasion and destruction of their ancient records and the subjugation of a color caste system. Still some statues exists on temples and other archeological artifacts. Harappan Civilization or the Indus Sarasvati (Matriarchal-Goddess) Civilization, flourished from 3300 B.C. to 1800 B.C. Like many ancient civilizations destroyed and forgotten by the coming of the dark ages (Kali Yuga). We can still see their heightened states of spirituality and enlightenment  and we owe our gratitude, reverence and thanks for their contribution to the light of the world leaving behind the sciences of yoga, religions, and spiritual healing systems and modalities.

Aromatherapy + Essential Oil Healing: Myrrh

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Complimentary Medicines

Aromatherapy and essential oils have numerous potent healing benefits documented in the ancient healing texts of the Ebers Papyrus from the medicinal healing priests of Imhotep (Father of Medicine, Khemet, Egypt) and Bast, goddess of Perfume (aromatherapy). Also throughout Greece, China, ancient India, and the Middle East. Today these healing modalities are packed with healing the senses (smell) and (touch) skin, the largest organ of the body, the integumentary organ. Essential Oils are concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants (Wikipedia). Whereas, Aromatherapy uses aromatic volatile oils like essential oils to vaporize a room or environment to engage the senses (smell) to induce healing effects on the body, mind, and spirit.

Origins

This ancient Near East African resin from the Commiphora myrrha or (Commiphora molmol) thorny-bush tree has been used as aromatherapy, incense, perfume, essential oil and healing medicine since Antiquity. Myrrh is found throughout Africa, the Indian Ocean Islands (Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Somalia, Soma, et. al), Vietnam, India, and Arabia.

Wine and Waistbeads

Did you know Myrrh can be mixed with wine? This resin from the wound of the tree “bleeds” sap in the form of a gum. Myrrh gum is sold as incense in hues of amber, deep orange, musky topaz browns, and are worn in West Africa (Mali) by women as waistbeads.

Uses and Legends

The essential oil of myrrh is extracted from the resin. Both the crystal resin and essential oil can be burned to purify and is a smell of mysterious enlightenment drawing out negative spirits and cleansing auras much like sage in Native American saging ceremonies.  Legend says Myrrh is sacred to the goddess Ast (Isis) deriving from the dark mysteries of the Moon and mastery of the  Underworld.  Myrrh is used to purify, consecrate, and bless as a guardian against lower-level negative entities (energy). It helps to uplift, clear, redirect, enhance, anoint, break black magick, and bring peace and clarity of the body, mind, and spirit.

Myrrh oil can be used to strengthen the gums as a mouthwash against periodontal disease,  lowers blood pressure, muscle sprains and spasms, acts as a sedative and carminative, antidepressant and fades scars.

Not only do Essential Oils feel good on the skin, they can be used potently in Aromatherapy and inhaled through the nasal passages. Aromatherapy is an ancient healing modality practiced in Antiquity such as Egypt, Africa, India, Tibet, the Mediterranean and throughout the Tribal Regions of North America. Cedar was considered by the Sumerians to be the symbol of “Power,” “Greatness,” and “Immortality.”

Cedar Wood Essential Oil

Cedar Wood Essential Oil

Goddesses like Bast, Isis (Ast), Sekhmet, Hetheru and Aphrodite  were known for their magical and healing use of aromatic scents to heal the body, mind and spirit. These Goddesses were the Queens of Nurture and  in tune with the essence and elements of Nature. They healed the sick, heard flowers bloom,  and brought about births and the wailing back to life and memory. Using their divine feminine intuition, and shaman like powers they were revered, celebrated, honored and respected as the embodiment of womanhood and deity. There is much we can learn from these world culture stories and myth. Their energies and boons (spiritual gifts) remain in our DNA and in the very fabric of this Earth and cosmos.

The use of oils and perfumes directly absorbed through the blood stream is a powerfully conscious way to heal, rejuvenate, maintain and strengthen the body’s immunity, mental clarity and sensuality and overall natural organic balance. By using a simple diffuser the essential oil can burn into a vapor by tea light candle in a ceramic sculpture. This method fills the room beautifully with any scent or combination you choose.

For the past few days, late nights especially I have blended Cedarwood EO with Tea Tree EO (my senses LOVE this Astringent) and a dash of Cinnamon EO!! ❤️
Note: Cinnamon Essential oil is powerful and can burn the skin! So add just a drop if mixing with other oils and carrier oils. I use Cinnamon mostly for household cleaning and spiritual clearing in prayer and rituals. I may also add Jasmine or Ylang Ylang to bring a lightness or floral air to my body and environment.

Cedarwood has been my favorite essential oil for over 20 years! It’s  safe and great for the skin, hair, in a spray bottle, or diffuser. It was known for its spiritual uses by Tibetan Monks in the Himalayas. It has a woodsy aroma that I add Jasmine oil floral scent. It can be used as an incense, perfume and massage oil.

Copper Obsessed, Healing Benefits!

Copper Obsessed, Healing Benefits!

Ancient Healing Properties of Copper 

ankhbraceletCopper’s anti-microbial properties have been used since ancient times in Sumeria and Kemet (Ancient Egypt) to promote wellness, channel energy, activate life force (prana or chi) and fight dis-ease, infection. 

Egyptians and Greeks used copper to kill bacteria, pathogens and parasites in drinking water. Copper is known to fight fungus and has a 2000 plus year history of medical applications for pathologies and healing.

Copper’s anti-microbial properties

Copper (Cu), Trace Element

Assists in the absorption of iron (Fe). Helps the body expel fat while increasing metabolism, neutralizes free radicals,
Produces hemoglobin (red blood cells) and myelin (substance surrounding the nerve fibers), collage and of course, melanin!
Increases Vitamin C metabolism, and structural protein for muscles and joints. In addition, it acts as an Anti-inflammatory agent known to reduce the symptoms of arthritis, and inflammatory diseases.

 Ever wonder what that blue-green dark spot on your skin was from wearing copper? It’s called iontophoresis, excess sulphates expelled from the body  via the integumentary  system (skin). This indicates that your copper bracelet is working and ridding your body of excess toxins.

 

Copper Infused Clothing

The week of this draft I saw Asian medical doctors wearing copper infused clothing to work with patients as a preventative measure for diseases and wellness. Unfortunately I couldnt find that news segement anywhere on ‘my’ google search but I did find this from TFOT (The Future of Things):

Cupron’s manufacturing process and products, An Israeli company developed a technology which uses copper to create anti bacterial clothing. The technology which recently received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approval is said to be able to reduce active fungus in athlete’s foot by more than 99.9 percent after 12 hours of contact with the fiber.

 

More Facts on Copper, Esoteric, Historical, Myths

Copper is an ancient healing metal found in Sumeria and Egypt’s Africa was once said to be more precious than Goldcopper_obsessed. In Egypt this metal is associated with the Goddess HetHeru (Hathor: “House or Celestial Heaven of the God Heru”) where Copper Ore and Turquoise mines (Sinai, Serabit el-Khadim (Khadem) were established in her honor. Ancient Egyptians took great care of the Earth’s natural resources and fully understood with their higher senses and clairvoyant forms of communication to live harmonically ‘with’ the Earth and thus not only used architecture and technology as a ‘tool’ to ‘energize’ the planet but to subsequently filter and transmute intentional ‘energy’ to it’s communities, citizens and tribes (kingdoms) and ecosystems. For us (modern day humans) to properly understand the phenomena of Ancient Egyptian culture and the metaphysical spiritual behaviour and psyche of the predynastic human of ancient Egypt or Sumer one would have to establish or accept that humans of that ‘time’ were in many ways ‘more’ advanced in the sciences, mathematics, arts etc than we are today.

 

 

Maintaining Wellness with Metals and Gems

ria_crystal

I wear copper because I LOVE the way it feels! There is an ancient, mythical quality about it that I seem to have an affinity for,sure it might be the black girl hippy in me (smile), but I feel closer to “Earth” and “wellness” when I wear it with my homemade gems, necklaces, bracelets and waistbeads. I mix copper with my bead-making jewelry to give my creations an outer-worldly look and feel. It’s another beautiful “gem” that looks sexy, amazing while healing you simultaneously — As Nature intended!

~ Empowerment, Wellness, Prosperity and Unity!
