Get Creative, Eat Oranges!

Get Creative, Eat Oranges!

Are you STUCK? No clarity and frustrated with whatever you’re creating? Whether it’s art, a new job, or even writing that article for your blog, try bringing more orange into your life.

Writing has never been my favorite, I always seem to get stuck with my words and what to say. So this morning, I had multiple slices of an orange and asked to be in the “flow”. My intent while eating the orange was to bring clarity and creativity to my work today. So that it goes easily and effortlessly, and so far, so good. It usually takes me an hour to write an article, and this is happening super fast and easy!
Orange is the color of creativity. It radiates warmth and happiness! It is made up of the red (love) and yellow (joy) energy. The color orange offers optimism and rejuvenation. It brings spontaneity and a positive outlook.

Orange relates to gut instincts and is the color of your sacral chakra. Your 2nd chakra is your passion and pleasure center. It’s located in the pelvic area, just below the belly button. This is the location of a woman’s womb where life is originated and created. This is also our ‘emotional’ center and where many of us store our unhappiness. If someone hurts you emotionally, you’ll feel like you got hit in that gut kind of a feeling. Next time you feel this envision yourself wrapped up in a nice warm, cozy orange blanket.

The color orange brings spontaneity and a positive outlook. So why not, every day try and incorporate some orange. You can eat or drink oranges, or just sprinkle some orange art or pillows around your house to bring a feeling of comfort and warmth into your home. The orange will bring a positive attitude so you can enter ‘The Flow’ zone in your creativity and will bring more pleasure, passion and ease into your life!

4. The Solar Plexus Chakra and the Pancreas

4. The Solar Plexus Chakra and the Pancreas

In the last three sessions of Chakras and the Body-Mind-Soul Connection, we’ve discussed how the body and soul work together to communicate divine truths to you, helping you see areas where you are allowing fear to get in between you and the flow of its energy and how that manifests itself in your life through your emotions and desires.

Last session, we talked about the Sacral Chakra and its role in helping you to discern what you need to absorb and where you need to let go. In this article, we’ll focus on the solar plexus chakra and the pancreas and the role those two play in helping you to understand and interpret the divine messages coming your way.

The Pancreas

It is the job of the pancreas to take the food we’ve chewed and break it into smaller particles that make it easier to digest and absorb. It also is in charge of when that flow of energy, created during the digestive process, gets released and how quickly it is released by releasing insulin to keep the stream of energy nice and steady or glucagen when the blood sugar levels get too low.

The Solar Plexus Chakra

This is the chakra that is known as the center of your being. It is where your self-discipline, self-control, and will power originate. It is where the interior vision of who you are and what your worth is to the world begins.

What the Pancreas Tells Us about the Solar Plexus Chakra

If we look at the pancreas, we can see that it is involved in taking the energy that is found outside of our bodies and breaking it down into smaller bits of energy that we can convert to fuel our own thoughts, desires, and dreams.

We are constantly receiving a stream of this energy in the form of life experiences and information gathered, far more than we could ever use in a single lifetime, and it is the job of the Solar Plexus Chakra to pick apart that energy for us and help us break it down so we can make sense of it. It is also the job of the Solar Plexus to regulate how much of that energy is released into us and when so that we’re not overwhelmed with it but can get exactly the right amount to sustain us and keep us going.

When the Solar Plexus Chakra Is Blocked

When the Solar Plexus Chakra is blocked, we are unable to process any of the information and energy we’re receiving. We become confused and disoriented. We’re lost. We don’t know which way to turn for help or what to do. Because the Solar Plexus is blocked, the energy needed for the Sacral Chakra to fulfill its process of discernment isn’t being received and we get stuck. We don’t know which energy to use and which to discard. Because we’re confused, we have trouble trusting what we’re receiving. Every chakra down the line is impacted if this Chakra is blocked.

When the Solar Plexus Chakra Is Too Open

If the Solar Plexus Chakra is stuck in open mode, we are being bombarded with energy and information faster than we can process it. We’re so busy trying to keep up with what’s coming in that nothing gets sorted and nothing gets filtered. It breaks down our ability to defend ourselves from what’s harmful, so we just store everything for later and we become bloated with energy.

The Challenge of the Solar Plexus Chakra

Giving ourselves time away from the steady stream of information, energy, and knowledge is the key to balancing the solar plexus chakra. We need to create space in our lives for time to reflect and get back in touch with nature. We need to engage in simple tasks that require no thought so that we have time to sort through all the things we’ve received and break them down into useful tidbits we can process before getting on to the next thing.

Next: The Heart Chakra and the Thymus

In our next article in the series, we’ll examine the role of the heart chakra and the thymus in teaching us how to regulate the flow of life energy into and out of us.

3. The Sacral Chakra and the Adrenal Glands

3. The Sacral Chakra and the Adrenal Glands

In this series on Chakras and the Body-Mind-Soul Connection, I have previously discussed how the chakras are the soul component of the person and the glands are the body component, and promised that we would use our minds to help us bridge the gap in understanding between the two. In this article, we will look at the natural function of the adrenal glands to help us learn about the supernatural function of the sacral chakra.

The Adrenal Glands

The adrenal glands are located at the tops of the kidneys. They are in charge of regulating digestion, self-defense, and blood pressure. The adrenal glands produce the hormones cortisol, aldosterone, adrenaline, as well as the hormones that regulate our blood sugar and keep our body processing then nutrients we receive.

Cortisol is released in response to fear. Aldosterone regulates blood pressure, the flow of blood to and from the heart. Under stress, the blood vessels constrict in order to protect the body in case of blood loss. Adrenaline is released in order to prepare the body to run or fight. Lungs are affected by this hormone.

If the gonads are releasing panic signals, these hormones swing into action. It heightens our senses to make us aware of potential dangers and get us out of harm’s way. Long term stress leads to high blood pressure, weight gain that does not respond to dieting or exercise, frequent panic and anxiety attacks, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping.

The Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is located right beneath the belly button. It is in charge of digesting the information we are receiving from the world, taking the good out of it and discarding what is harmful to us. It is in charge of protecting our sense of self-worth and keeping our sense of identity from harm. It is in charge of regulating the flow of energy to and from our heart and our head. Connecting with our sacral chakra is about learning to discern between what is truly harmful to us and what is not.

When the Sacral Chakra is Blocked

When we are not able to receive the divine energy that tells us how to distinguish between what is good for us and what is not, we will be ruled and controlled by our fears. We will end up feeling unable to get enough of anything because what we truly need isn’t able to be processed or digested properly. We’ll stuff our lives full of things we don’t need in an effort to fill the hunger that never seems to go away.

When the Sacral Chakra Is Too Open

If we’re too discerning, we risk becoming too regulated and too controlled. We count every calorie in every bite of food we eat and never enjoy the richness of life. We count every dime and penny and we never enjoy the money we have earned. We block out anyone who even hints at making us unhappy and miss out on the lessons that those people have to offer us. We don’t listen to anything that doesn’t fit with what we think is right and as a result can miss out on growth opportunities. We become so focused on purging what is harmful from our lives that we fail to absorb what is good.

Balance Is the Key

The head tells us to block out everything that would hurt us. The heart tells us to trust everything. The key is to balance those two demands. We need to keep the flow of what is good coming into us and the flow of what is not good going out of us in a steady rhythm.

Next: The Solar Plexus Chakra and the Pancreas

In this coming article, we will examine the solar plexus chakra and what the pancreas tells us that can help us understand the needs of the soul better so that we can continue to improve our lives, our health, and our happiness.

2. The Root Chakra – Regulating and Directing the Flow of Energy

2. The Root Chakra – Regulating and Directing the Flow of Energy

In a previous post, Chakras and the Body-Mind-Soul Connection, I related the soul to being a lot like the electricity that allows the computer to function. Without that electricity, the operating system and the parts of the computer are useless.

I also related the fact that the chakras are the soul component of the glands that are correlated to them. So for this article, we will examine what we know about the glands, what we know about the chakras, and what connection we can make between the two by examining the underlying meaning of them.

What the Glands Do

creative energy drawings

The glands in the body can be thought of as switches in the computer. They are responsible for regulating and directing the flow of energy coming from the nervous system out into the body. The energy that powers the body is known as hormones. The glands in the body act as message delivery centers that tell the organs in the body what to do and when, and the hormones are the messengers that carry those messages to the organs.

What the Chakras Do

Like the glands, the chakras act as switches that direct the flow of energy coming from the divine into the soul. The energy that powers the soul is known as chi. The chakras act as message delivery centers that tell the operating system in the brain what to do and when, and the chi are the messengers that carry those messages to the operating system.

The Base Glands: The Gonads

The testes and ovaries secrete hormones that regulate growth and development. The gonads provide the bulk of sex hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. While they are called sex hormones because they result in the development of secondary sexual characteristics such as breasts and chest hair, they are primarily responsible for preparing the body for reproduction and the ability to feel sexual desire.

When the Gonads are not working properly, everything stops working. The mind can’t seem to stay focused. The entire body feels drained of energy. It can feel like nothing is reaching you. Desire is suppressed or even absent. Your ability to control your emotions is decreased and you may seem more irritable than usual.

The Root Chakra

The root chakra is related to feelings of trust and security, trust in others, trust in ourselves, and security in our relationships with others and with the world. When the root chakra is blocked, we are worried, anxious, and ruled by fear. We may close in on ourselves rather than opening up and reaching out.

Reproduction, Creativity, and Trust

When we are our best selves, we are open to giving and to receiving love, and reproduction is the result. We are open to giving and receiving ideas, and creativity is the result. Trust is what allows us to be open to give and receive love. Trust is what allows us to be open to giving and receiving ideas. Trust is what allows our energy to flow naturally, effortlessly, and without having to “do” anything except be ourselves.

The Source of Self-Confidence and Security

Trust is the source of self-confidence and security. When we trust, it is because we feel safe. We feel secure. We know that nothing is meant for our harm, and all is meant for our good. This leads us to confidence in ourselves, in others, and in our world.

The Trust Hormone

Oxytocin, the hormone that regulates trust, is secreted by the gonads. It is released into the blood stream during physical touch, sexual intercourse, nursing, and childbirth. Oxytocin boosts the brain’s tendency to prioritize the needs of others ahead of our own.

Too Much Trust Is Not Healthy

Trust makes us vulnerable to those who are not working in our best interests. Sexually, too much trust leads to promiscuity which can leave us broken hearted, feeling used, and even being abused. Creatively, too much trust can result in us giving everything away without opening ourselves up to receiving in return, and that can lead us to feeling used, abused, and misunderstood. This is why balance is the key.

The Other Chakras

The role of the other chakras is to protect the Root Chakra’s natural tendency to be open, vulnerable, trusting, and giving by guiding and directing its energies in an appropriate manner.
