Pagan Creations: Goddess Symbols: Circle

image

The Circle is the quintessential Goddess symbol.

微笑棋牌现金版下载The Moon, the Earth, a lactating breast, a pregnant belly are all Circles. Life is a circle. Eggs and many seeds are, roughly, circular. The stars and the seasons and the Sun all travel in circles around the Earth - at least visibly. Chakras are also circular.

微笑棋牌现金版下载The Circle represents protected space, and sacred space. They also represent equal power-sharing … People who gather in Circles meet as equals, with no single person set apart or above the others.

Anything that contains a Circle reflects unmistakably an aspect of the Goddess.

KUNDALINI RISING: ROOT CHAKRA

image

The Root Chakra is the foundation of the physical body. It is the seat of inherited beliefs, self-preservation (fight or flight instincts), identification with the physical world and survival. A healthy root chakra helps you have a solid connection to family and community, enjoy financial security, readily take action and feel happy and alive. It governs the immune and skeletal systems.

When the root chakra is weak or unbalanced, you may have adrenal, colon and kidney problems and weakness in the legs and spine. You may also suffer from anxiety, greed, selfishness, lack of confidence and failure to follow through. Heal the root chakra by exercise, dance, being in nature and cooking and cleaning.

微笑棋牌现金版下载The Root Chakra is a particularly interesting and potent one when it comes to food, and very often problems associated with this chakra (lack of sense of place, ungroundedness, disconnection from the world around you, financial problems) can be effectively and quickly brought under control by changing your diet to root chakra-friendly foods. As this chakra pulses with a vivid red color, red foods are an ideal companion for it. These include red meats and other animal proteins, red fruits and berries (especially pomegranates and cranberries) and root vegetables such as beetroot and yam.

As this chakra is associated with the earth, and a sense of being grounded and at one with the earth we inhabit, foods which also have a symbiotic relationship with soil and earth are fantastic for cleansing and boosting this chakra’s potency. Possibly the finest example of these would be edible and medicinal mushrooms – a food which is not only packed with protein, but also comes from a food group which literally holds the soil together, nourishing it and sprouting from it at once.

The root chakra is symbolized by the red Maladhara mandala, fire and snakes and dragons and its element is earth.

PAGAN CREATIONS: GODDESS SYMBOLS-SERPENT

image
The Serpent is one of the first Goddess symbols. Serpents are mysterious creatures. They dwell in the dark inner Earth and sunlit outer Earth equally - crossing the borders between the worlds. They move with the fluidity of water. In ancient times, it was believed that snakes never died of age, but shed their old skins and were reborn.

Serpents are ancient Goddess symbols, for all these reasons, and many more … They have been identified from time immemorial as the Consciousness and Will of the Divine, which creates all life and guides humanity to the realization of its spiritual potential.

The serpent represents the Feminine Spiritual Energy. This is the Kundalini - the Goddess Within. This life energy lies essentially dormant in most people. It seems to awaken spontaneously, to some degree, in women during menopause and childbirth.

微笑棋牌现金版下载The Serpent has a long and fascinating history of worship and supernatural struggle between the Gods and Goddesses.

微笑棋牌现金版下载Even in Gnostic Judaism and Gnostic Christianity, the Serpent was revered as Divine.

There is also a connection between the serpent and the mysterious and magical DNA molecules. This Rainbow Serpent is worshiped in many forms, all over the world, by shamanic cultures.

The Goddess has been celebrated in the serpentine motions of belly dance, for millennia, despite efforts to stamp it out and defame the women who practiced it. This is a practice that is gaining great popularity again, as the Goddess becomes honored once more.

KUNDALINI RISING: SIXTH CHAKRA

image

微笑棋牌现金版下载Third Eye Chakra: the seat of intuition, divine wisdom and truth. Physically, the third eye chakra influences the eyes, nose, central nervous system, brain and the pituitary gland. When it’s balanced, you are able to visualize things that have not yet manifested, you have a sense of control over your life and the courage to follow your dreams. You easily connect and communicate with your spirit guides and Higher Self. You are intuitive, focused, imaginative, insightful and enlightened. You are confident in your self and your abilities, and don’t need to seek validation outside yourself. Your mental faculties are sharp, and you are finely attuned to both the reality within your mind and physical reality. When unbalanced, this chakra causes vision problems, sinus issues, headaches, nightmares, being overly analytical (dismissing intuitive guidance), confusion, psychological problems, panic attacks and depression. To balance the third eye chakra, spend time outdoors, gazing at the sky; or, with eyes closed, feel the warmth of the sun radiating through you.

The third eye chakra is symbolized by an indigo Anja mandala, light, mind and spirit.

ASANA CRYSTAL ENERGY

 COMBINE CRYSTAL HEALING WITH ASANA POSES FOR INSOMNIA

CRYSTAL HEALING FOR INSOMNIA:  QUARTZ CRYSTAL AND SELENITE

image

QUARTZ CRYSTAL helps to ensure that you will have pleasant dreams while you are asleep. It is an energizing and activating gemstone that works to magnify the properties of any crystals touching it.  Quartz Crystals can also help you to focus on your dreams. Before you go to sleep, hold your quartz crystals in your hand and think about any problems that you may have. When you fall asleep with the crystals under your pillow, they will help your mind work through these issues while you are asleep.

SELENITE is one of the best crystals for insomnia because it actively helps to battle it. It surrounds your body with protective energy while you are sleeping, cleansing and rejuvenating your aura while you are asleep so you awaken feeling rested and refreshed. Selenite is actually one of the crystals that we recommend that everyone has in their home because it carries such a high vibration. Selenite will also works to constantly cleanse and reactivate the crystals that are touching it, keeping them energized and free of negative energy. Since Selenite is one of the best crystals to help insomnia, you should place it under your pillow for a restful sleep.

ASANA POSES FOR INSOMNIA

EXTENDED PUPPY POSE ( Uttana Shishosana)

Come onto all fours. See that your shoulders are above your wrists and your hips are above your knees. Walk your hands forward a few inches and curl your toes under.

As you exhale, move your buttocks halfway back toward your heels. Keep your arms active; don’t let your elbows touch the ground.

Drop your forehead to the floor or to a blanket and let your neck relax. Keep a slight curve in your lower back. To feel a nice long stretch in your spine, press the hands down and stretch through the arms while pulling your hips back toward your heels.

Breathe into your back, feeling the spine lengthen in both directions. Hold for 30 seconds to a minute, then release your buttocks down onto your heels.

CAT POSE ( Marjaryasana)

Start on your hands and knees in a “tabletop” position. Make sure your knees are set directly below your hips and your wrists, elbows and shoulders are in line and perpendicular to the floor. Center your head in a neutral position, eyes looking at the floor.

As you exhale, round your spine toward the ceiling, making sure to keep your shoulders and knees in position. Release your head toward the floor, but don’t force your chin to your chest.

Inhale, coming back to neutral “tabletop” position on your hands and knees.

This pose is often paired with Cow Pose (Bitilasana) on the inhale for a gentle, flowing vinyasa.
