Insomnia Chakra Cleaning, or Get the Gum Off!

After a long weekend of socialization  and events, I found I could not sleep- the hours stretched  on-

Finally I decided to do a chakra cleaning.  Sometimes other people's energy gets stuck in or on our aura.  Stuck is the right word, for when I went in to try and clear this, it was a sticky gooey mess.

It doesn't mean someone intentionally left the energy there, it  happens if they or you  are not so conscious of boundaries or if there are just alot of people around.

Time to clear it off.  I started with my feet ( the bottom of your feet and your knees have chakras) and pulled a bunch of stuff off the area around my feet and legs- like pulling gum off your shoes, only a bigger mass of energy.

Pull it off and throw it on the ground quite a distance away from you.  Ahhh- better.

Then travel to your first chakra at the base of your spine.  Go in with your mind and stick your hand in there. Pull out the sticky energy and throw it on the pile.

Second chakra- the belly area-  pull until it all comes out- all the way to the back of your chakra.  Throw it away from you.

Third chakra in the solar plexus.  Keep pulling until you hear a "pop" or sense a release-  Throw it away.

Heart chakra, gently pull here, think more of releasing, but still  going for the "pop"- Toss it away.

Take deep breath-  You've earned it-  Feels so much better.

The 5th chakra at the throat,  kind of stringy, isn't it?  Pull the energy out from your ears too while you're at it.  Clear it away.

Pull any sticky stuff from your 6th chakra at the forehead.  Then gently clear your eyes with a sweep of your hands-  you will see much more clearly.

Finally travel to the top of your head.  Sweep away anything blocking you from your Source until there is a clear channel again.


Check your back for any leftover stuff you don't want and throw it away in one sweeping motion.

Get rid of the pile of gunk over there, if it's not already gone, by just throwing the word, Dissolve at it.  It's gone..

Start to bring in a silvery color through your seventh chakra.  Let it fill all your chakras, one by one.

Let it fill your whole aura until you feel calm, secure and protected.
If you would like, change the silver to the
 color you feel most comfortable, most powerful,and most like yourself in.

Relax, start to let your mind wander and think of pleasant things-
Sweet dreams-

A Summer Meditation

Summer is a time of wholeness.  It seems that life is long and  everything will unfold as it should.  All is in bloom and we are open to the magic of life.  So, I invite you to come with me on a summer meditation.

It is afternoon, heading on towards evening.  You decide to walk up into the hills.   You see a path, and climb  until you reach a natural circular plateau.  It looks over rolling hills, one folding into another, towards the West.  The wind comes up, caressing you on every side.

The sky is big around you as you stand on your sacred spot.  You are reminded of a Native American song.

Now I walk in Beauty
Beauty is before me.
Beauty is behind me
Above and Below me.

Mother Earth is warm beneath you.  All the heat from the day is radiating from Her.  You sit on the ground and begin to breathe.Take some time.

The sun is beginning to sink in the sky.  Open your seventh chakra at the top of your head and bring in the golden energy of the Sun.
Let it flow like honey, healing and soothing every sore place, filling every empty place.

Let it flow in and fill your feet, your lower legs, your thighs.  Let it fill the base of your spine, your belly, your solar plexus.

Let the mellow light fill your heart chakra, your upper chest, shoulders, arms and hands.  Let the light fill your throat, your ears, your eyes and forehead.  You are glowing with healthy energy. Now it spills over and covers your skin, from your face, down your shoulders,to your lower body, and all the way to your feet.

You have become very quiet.  You can hear the wind blowing through the tall grasses.  The birds are calling each other home.

The sky turns pink, then a deep blue.

The light continues to fade. The sky darkens.  Stars become visible, and then more, until a whole canopy of stars seem to rotate overhead.

You feel how small you are.  How small the Earth is- just another star in a whole universe of stars.

And yet. You feel very much yourself.  You feel  your Self-
a Higher Self than you operate from in everyday life.  You feel
a part of the Universe.


And then everything shifts.  The stars seem to be at your feet now.

Below you lies a plain of stars, stretching in all directions,  It is wondrous, magnificent.  And across that plain comes a figure, walking towards you.

You feel very joyful. You feel you know this Being. And you do.
You have felt this presence before.  Maybe it was at a time of great need, or a time of opening to Spirit.

Her/ His presence is very real.  You may feel a certain vibration, or hear music, or smell a fragrance.  She comes and greets you.  You embrace.

Sit together, feel Her vibration and be open.  On this summer night, of all summer nights, the Universe has something to say to you.

As you sit with your guide, you become aware of part of your purpose in this lifetime. Open, and let this knowledge fully enter your consciousness.

Ask your guide how you can further your purpose at this time, ask how you may serve your Highest purpose.

Take some time to relax in this blissful state of communication with your guide, for she/he knows you very well and loves you.You may have another question, or your guide may want to convey other information to you.


And now it is time to say goodbye.  Again you embrace, thanking your guide.  You watch her walk away across the plain of stars.

 The scene shifts.  The stars are back up in the sky.  It is time to walk home.  As you carefully find your way down the hillside, you feel your feet on the Earth, taking a deep breath of the fragrant air, and you are back in your body, feeling awake and complete, with full recall of your summer journey.

May Spirit bless and protect you- Namaste- Lia

I was at preschool the other day (my main job) and a little boy's
eyes  were tearing up.  This went on for awhile- he couldn't really articulate what was wrong.

I finally pulled him over away from the others and just patted his back and held him in my lap. 

He really did cry then, not loud, but real sobs and said"My dad."

Turns out he missed his Dad, who had dropped him off that morning.  I told him it was OK, he would see his
Dad after school, and that we would keep him safe until then.

It wound down and soon he was playing and smiling with his friend. ( Who, in between all this, had wordlessly come up and kissed his cheek and walked away.)

Sometimes you  just need to cry. When I was growing up, my Mom would cry at movies or sad occurrences in the news and the family,(mostly guys) would say " Ohh, Mom!"

I wish I had stood up for her.  I realize now that crying and feeling is a gift and, while we can't go around blubbering all the time,  we should let our tears flow, if possible.  It is a real reaction and mostly appropriate at the time.

I remember my Mom was reading a book in the living room and started to cry.  I asked her why and she just said " the book is so sad,- what happened"-  the book was "Exodus."

When I try to suppress tears I get a huge headache.  So whether they are tears of relief, tears of joy, or tears of sadness, give yourself a break and cry a little, at least in private.  It is very cleansing and in the flow of what is happening on a gut level.

Many blessings to you-  Lia
