KUNDALINI RISING: ROOT CHAKRA

image

微笑棋牌现金版下载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.

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.

微笑棋牌现金版下载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.

The Serpent has a long and fascinating history of worship and supernatural struggle between the Gods and Goddesses.

Even in Gnostic Judaism and Gnostic Christianity, the Serpent was revered as Divine.

微笑棋牌现金版下载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.

微笑棋牌现金版下载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.

ANIMAL BIRTH TOTEMS

October 23 - November 22
Frost Time

Lengthening nights and winter’s first frosted breaths signify what some Native American tribes refer to as “Frost Time.” This is generally a period for solemn change as the golden fall fades into gray and people make their final preparations for the long winter ahead. Those born during this time are represented by the Snake Birth Totem. Often misunderstood, Snakes 微笑棋牌现金版下载are marvelous creatures with a rich history of legend and lore.

The Snake Birth Totem

With so many legends surrounding them, it can be hard to imagine the type of person represented by this Native American birth totem. True to form, those of the Snake Totem are inquisitive and determined, albeit a little intense. The Snake’s tendency towards secrecy and their charismatic personality will keep others coming back for more. Snakes微笑棋牌现金版下载 are ambitious creatures who regard obstacles as a way to fuel their drive for personal enhancement.

Just as the snake periodically sheds its skin, people represented by the Snake Totem Animal will periodically undergo major life transformations. Sometimes these transformations are rather extreme, affecting friends, family and general onlookers with the wake that such changes can evoke. While the feeling of new situations and experiences enthralls Snakes微笑棋牌现金版下载, it is important they do not completely alienate their old companions in the process, or they will find themselves unable to maintain long-lasting relationships.

GODDESS SYMBOLS-APPLE

The apple微笑棋牌现金版下载 has long been associated with the worship of the Goddess.

Note the story of Eve and the Serpent (one of the eternal Goddess symbols). When Eve ate the apple, she was taking in Divine wisdom - the knowledge that she is Divine. 微笑棋牌现金版下载Thus she would become immortal.

The apple seems to have always been associated with death and eternal life.

Walker writes,

“Graves [in Greek Myths, vol. 2] points out that the whole story of Eve, Adam, and the serpent in the tree was deliberately misinterpreted from icons showing the Great Goddess offering life to her worshipper, in the form of an apple, with the tree and its serpent [the sacred guardian] in the background.” (Barbara Walker, The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets, p 49.)

微笑棋牌现金版下载Naturally a jealous God - who wants to be the only god - would outlaw such knowledge of one’s divinity! But since it is Truth, He couldn’t keep it hidden forever. So when it came out, He decided to keep us so busy with survival and pain that we wouldn’t have time to notice our divinity.

Luckily the Goddess is more compassionate, and not threatened by others being empowered. She gave us plenty of hints along the way, to remember.

One of these is the apple. Cut in half, its seed bed - the most potent part of the fruit - reveals the sacred 5-pointed star within the circle of apple skin.

微笑棋牌现金版下载This is the pentacle - the expression of One Divinity as all facets of the world.  

It can’t be coincidence that it was an apple which woke Isaac Newton up to a new insight into reality!

The Goddess is still working to wake us up to the knowledge of our own sacred essence. And the process is picking up momentum.

Because the Goddess is the Divine manifest微笑棋牌现金版下载. She is “dead” or “sleeping” as long as we are ignorant of Her. When we wake up, the Goddess will truly by Alive.

Think of this next time you eat an apple微笑棋牌现金版下载. -spirituality-goddess-symbols

CELTIC ANIMAL SYMBOLS (SNAKE)

February 18 - March 17
The Celtic animal sign of the snake has a cool exterior but are infinitely lively. They are curious and are always full of questions about how the world works, and how the people around them work (even if they aren’t openly asking, you can bet they’re figuring out the answers in their own mind). Snakes are natural communicators, and they can be hugely persuasive. If they are passionate about a cause they can round up the whole neighborhood with their zeal and enthusiasm for their purpose. Snakes can be spontaneous and unpredictable too. And although they’re pretty flexible, they like things to go their way (who doesn’t?), and will prove to be uncooperative if pushed in a corner.
