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!

Your Life’s Purpose Path

While everyone’s purpose is to bring love into this world, there are three pathways to fulfilling that purpose. Figuring out your path is the key to discovering the specific task you’ve been assigned to complete and getting that task fulfilled. The three pathways are Love, Wisdom, and Joy.

THE RED FREQUENCY is Love: Circulating the Energy

jennifer-pennington

Those who were born to walk the path of love make great planners and organizers. They thrive where there are established rules and systems that bring order. They do not like or appreciate it when people deviate from their carefully constructed plans. They do not enjoy chaos or surprises.

The color for the path of love is red and its symbol is blood. Part of the reason that people walking the path of love are so resistant to change or alteration is related to the nature of blood. Blood does not do well outside of a closed system. It needs the established and predictable steadiness of a circuit in order to do its best work.

Love’s challenge is its need to control other people, especially those who are not walking the same path. Love tends to be particularly hard on those walking the path of Joy, because it tends to sees Joy’s boundless energy and undirected enthusiasm as a threat to the order it is attempting to bring. Love does get along well with Wisdom, but more because of Wisdom’s adaptable and changeable nature than because it truly understands Wisdom.

Love’s life lesson is that rather than seeking to control and change people, it must learn to accept and appreciate them for what they are. When Love can accept and appreciate others, it will find them much more cooperative and beneficial to the work it is trying to do.

THE BLUE FREQUENCY Wisdom/Peace: Keeping the Flow Going

Those born to walk the path of wisdom make great diplomats and inventors. They thrive when they are given the opportunity to learn new things and to pass on their knowledge to others. They do not like it when people try to get in their way or stop them from making progress on something they are trying to do. They do not enjoy having their ideas or insights ignored.

The color for the path of wisdom is blue and its symbol is water. Part of the reason that people walking the path of wisdom are so sensitive to being ignored is due to the nature of water. Water can easily change forms to suit the environment, but if it does that too much, it loses sight of who it really is and can become insecure about its identity. Being ignored leads them to doubt themselves, and plays on their existing insecurities.

While Wisdom walkers can be seen as know-it-alls by the other two, they are usually still able to get along well with both groups. Wisdom helps Love keep flowing by contributing to their store of knowledge about people. Wisdom also helps Joy get along with others by providing a cloud of insulation that keeps tempers from flaring up when Joy’s intense enthusiasm or fiery nature becomes a little much for others to handle.

Wisdom’s challenge is its need to learn to trust itself. Wisdom has a special gift of being able to connect the dots between two seemingly completely unrelated things, which allows it to spot a path that no one else is able to see, just as water finds a way to flow around an obstacle in ways that no one else can. The trouble with that is because no one else around these Wisdom path walkers can see what Wisdom can, they don’t believe it and their lack of belief leads Wisdom to doubt its own conclusions.

Wisdom’s life lesson is to persist in pursuing your vision. People will believe once they see you create it. And in creating it, you will confirm for yourself that it can be done.

THE YELLOW FREQUENCYJoy: Bringing the Energy to Life

creative energy drawings

Joy, in its native state, radiates energy all over the place. Joy walkers are natural entertainers and love the spotlight, even though they tend to be introverted. They love to make people laugh and they delight in play of all kinds.

They are the least understood and most often taken for granted of the three paths. As a result, they frequently turn up as deeply depressed individuals. They may be alcoholics or drug addicts. They struggle to believe in and see the good in themselves.

The color for the path of joy is yellow and its symbol is sunlight. Part of the reason that people walking the path of joy are so often depressed and filled with self-loathing is due to the nature of sunlight. When sunlight is blocked, it becomes shadows. When sunlight is left to its own devices without water to cool things down for it, it becomes destructive.

Joy walkers have a very tender heart and they are easily hurt. While they can hold grudges and be stingy at times, this isn’t their natural tendency. Those things come when they grow afraid of getting hurt. Their natural tendency is to forgive quickly and to be astonishingly generous. When at their best, they give easily and effortlessly of themselves, even when they have very little.

Joy’s challenge is the depression that is ever present and a constant threat to their health and the sanity of the people who love them. Due to their struggle to believe in and see the good in themselves, they have trouble staying on task with their purpose and are easily derailed by failures and setbacks. They need lots of encouragement in order to get past those mental roadblocks.

Joy’s life lesson is that just because others do not see the worth in you does not mean you are worthless. For every person who does not appreciate the Joy Walker, there will be thousands more who do. The world needs you!

8. The Crown Chakra and the Thalamus Gland

8. The Crown Chakra and the Thalamus Gland

This is the seventh article of our “Chakras and the Body-Mind-Soul Connection”. If you’ve enjoyed this article series and want to know more, I hope you’ll stay tuned. There is more incredible, authentic, and eye-opening information headed your way.

Summary of Our Last Lesson

In the last article, “The Brow Chakra and the Pituitary, Pineal, and Hypothalamus Gland”, I talked about how these glands function, just as the brow chakra does, to take all that information that’s being collected and decide the best way to keep you safe, stable, and healthy. In this article, we’ll talk about the crown chakra and the thalamus gland and their role in helping you become your best self.

The Thalamus Gland

Anand-Kalin

As in the rest of the articles, we’re going to be looking less at what the thalamus gland is and more at what it does in order to help us interpret the function of the crown chakra and glean an increased understanding of how it operates to help us achieve higher functioning.

The thalamus collects and sorts all of the internal input from the body and all of the external input from the environment and decides what to do with that information. Its job is to make connections between those things. If the hypothalamus, for instance, relays information about a possible danger that the eyes have spotted, the thalamus will compare notes with everything you’ve experienced in the past and figure out the best route to handle the danger as quickly and painlessly as possible. All within a matter of seconds!

The sheer volume of information it receives means that the thalamus must filter through the information quickly, determining which bits of information to collect and which to discard. If it thinks this is useful information, it passes it off to the hippocampus where the memory center of the brain resides and sets the hippocampus off to work on figuring out how the new information should be filed in relation to all the other things you know about that topic.

If the information it receives tells it there is an immediate threat to the body or if there is an actionable opportunity to advance its health and welfare, it will send the information over to the amygdala for processing. The amygdala then converts that information to the appropriate emotions to ensure that you respond as quickly as possible.

The Crown Chakra and the Divine Energy

The Crown Chakra’s job is to compare the information it is receiving from the divine energy that surrounds you and the information it is gathering from the natural world around you and interpret what that means for you in terms of what steps to take next and when to take them.

The Healthy Crown Chakra

If your Crown Chakra is functioning correctly, you will intuitively know where you should be going and when you should arrive there. People will remark that good things just seem to fall into your lap. You will see everything that happens to you as a kind of open dialogue between you and the divine force that guides the universe.

You will feel confident that even the apparently negative things that happen to you are actually things working to benefit you. You will be calm even in a crisis. Your mind will be relaxed and able to think, solve problems, and capitalize on opportunities.

The Blocked Crown Chakra

You are constantly living on the edge. Everything feels random to you. You see no connections between your behavior and what happens to you. The world, as a result, seems a scary and very hostile place to be. You don’t control your thoughts, feelings, or behaviors – they control you.

Symptoms of a Too Open Crown Chakra

You feel completely disconnected from the world, as if you are living on a totally different plane from everyone else out there. You see connections between everything, but you aren’t good at communicating those connections to other people. The world, as a result, feels lonely and unwelcoming. You are in control of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions – but you haven’t figured out how to take the actions to manifest your desires on this plane of existence.

Summary of Findings

The chakras are the reception centers of the divine energy that is all around us. Keeping them clear and open is important so that you can benefit from that energy.

7. The Brow Chakra or Third-Eye and the Pituitary, Pineal, and Hypothalamus Glands

7. The Brow Chakra or Third-Eye and the Pituitary, Pineal, and Hypothalamus Glands

In this sixth article in our series on “Chakras and the Body-Mind-Soul Connection”, we’ll examine the brow chakra, also known as the third-eye, and what the pituitary, pineal, and hypothalamus glands provide in terms of insights into understanding and unlocking it for our benefit. We’ll also look at how blockages to these glands or to that particular chakra impact our life and what the symptoms are so we can take action to solve the problems caused by that.

The Pituitary Gland

creative energy drawings

The pituitary gland lies in between the two halves of the brain at the base of the third vertebrae. In scientific terms, it is known as the master gland because it regulates and controls the rate at which the other glands release their hormones and the timing of the release. Until the pineal gland tells the body to act, it doesn’t act.

The pituitary gland is divided into three lobes. The anterior lobe is in charge of regulating the activity of the thyroid gland, the adrenal glands, and the gonads. It tells the body when to grow, how much to grow, and when to stop growing. It also regulates the production of breast milk by pregnant and nursing mothers so that they can nourish the growth of their young.

The intermediate lobe dictates the pigmentation of skin, releasing more Beta-melanocyte–stimulating hormone when there’s been increased exposure to direct sunlight and more protection is needed and decreasing the levels when there’s less sunlight so that more of sunlight can be taken in and absorbed.

The posterior lobe is in charge of releasing antidiuretic hormones which prevent dehydration and regulating the amount of oxytocin in the bloodstream. Extra oxytocin is released when childbirth is ready to take place, aiding in the contractions of the uterus that push the child out of the womb and signaling that it is time for prolactin, the hormone that leads to breast milk production, to be released so that the child entering the world will have what it needs to thrive and flourish.

The anterior (front) lobe and the posterior (back) lobes are attached to the hypothalamus through a cable made of blood vessels and axon (neural connectors) that allow for direct communication.

The Pineal Gland

The last gland to be discovered by modern science and the least understood, the pineal gland is in charge of your body’s natural sleep/wake cycle. It also regulates the sex drive, hunger, thirst, and the aging of the body. It regulates these things in response to light received from the eyes. For example, in a healthy body, when the eyes begin to detect an increase in light from the dawn breaking, it cuts off the production of melatonin and sends a signal to the pituitary gland that it is time to increase the levels of serotonin so that you wake naturally.

It is the job of the pineal gland to take the information collected from the eyes and pass it on so that the other systems can interpret and make sense of what to do about it.

The Hypothalamus

The hypothalamus is the thermostat for the body. It determines, based on the feedback it receives from the rest of the systems, what is normal and healthy. It then takes the information coming in from all of the other systems and works hard to be sure that the right hormones are released to keep things from getting too far off of normal to be healthy. When your systems stray, its job is to bring those back under control. It keeps you safe mentally and physically by regulating the emotions you feel in response to your environment.

If you’re happy, it’s because the hypothalamus sees this situation as “normal and healthy” for you. If you’re mad, the hypothalamus has detected something being done to you by someone else or by a situation you are in that puts your mental or physical health at risk. If you’re anxious, it’s because there’s been a threat detected to the thermostat itself. Something has challenged your sense of personal identity, the “normal” for you. Being aware of your emotions can help you spot the “normal” setting for your health and – if being fat is normal for you – do whatever it takes to reset that point so that you can achieve the weight loss you desire. That’s why true transformation begins in the mind.

The Brow Chakra

Looking at the overall elements of the activities of the pineal and pituitary glands combined with the hypothalamus gland, we get a much better feel for what the brow chakra is and does. It takes the information it receives from the divine and combines it with the information received from our bodies and acts to keep us normalized, stable, and healthy. It is the center that acts to make connections between the divine, the world around us, and what is happening to us on the inside.

Symptoms of a Blocked Brow Chakra

Your life is one big dramatic episode. You are either up or down. You’re never stable. Chaos reigns supreme in your life, and you feel stressed out, anxious, and worried constantly.  You wouldn’t know normal if it walked up to you and introduced itself to you. You truthfully doubt that normal even exists.

Symptoms of a Too Open Brow Chakra

You are so safe, secure, and stable that your life is boring. You’re healthy, you’re safe, but you aren’t really living. You’re comfortable, but you aren’t being challenged and as a result, you aren’t growing. You aren’t flourishing. You aren’t thriving. You’re stagnating.

Next: The Crown Chakra and the Thalamus

In the next lesson, we’ll talk about the connection between the Thalamus and the Crown Chakra, and its role in helping you put all the pieces of your life together so you can maximize your achievement and become your best self.

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

jennifer-pennington

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.
