Psychic Tool Series: The Crown Chakra

“The desire to remember yourself is the only desire which will take you into anything new. Paradoxically, we are unable to remember who we truly are because of the memories we keep creating.” -Gene Keys by Richard Rudd.

I recently saw an interview with Dr. Tenerai Trent whose story had me in tears for most of the interview she gave with Marie Forleo.

She said in the interview, “When we become grounded, fear and doubt, “I could have done that, I could have done this” will disappear because we know we have what it takes to achieve our goals in life.” (And this coming from a woman who faced unrelenting odds.)

I love how she’s pointing out a certain cause and effect between the chakras themselves. The more grounded (1st chakra) I can become, the more of my knowing I have for my own dreams (7th chakra).

This plays out time and again in how to mechanically work with our sensitivities and offers a wonderful plan of action.

The Crown chakra, or 7th, sits on top of the head and is the ability to access one’s own spiritual information. It’s a two-dimensional part of the self.

Some people are wide open in the crown and take in a lot of information from the world around them, while others have a less permeable design but still get build-up for sure.

It’s important to recognize that the Crown is more than just a location on the energetic body but also is a tool to use to manage sensitivities.

When you’re often times feeling like a radio tower and like you can’t turn your thoughts off at night, find concentration during the day, or find yourself having lots of conversations with others inside of your head, it’s a good indication that your crown chakra needs an energetic cleaning.

Dr. Trent’s instructions to Ground is just about the most mechanically sound advice I could imagine. Click here to receive the free grounding cord video.

When you put that grounding cord on, you are releasing all of the build up from the day out of your whole body including your crown chakra. You can feel it drain out of your body and if you’re very visual person, you can watch the energy drain away.

This affects the crown chakra by giving you room access your dreams and spiritual information without all the clutter and noise of everyone wanting your attention. Doing this at anytime during the day or before sleep at night will be an amazing ally in clearing your way through the details of life into the wide vista of your true goals.

There is nothing more precious than being able to have your own spirit (7th chakra) in your own body (grounded). If you choose to take the steps further and clean out all of the chakras, it really is a major step to remembering yourself and thus creating and living your dreams.

 

When Is It Safe To Be Beautiful?

It took me a long time as a sensitive woman to be able to show up in what beauty I possess. I did everything I could to keep attention away from me. I gained weight, shaved my head and wore square-shaped clothes. (Nothing wrong with any of these things, please!) I simply didn't have the energetic tools to be noticed as I am and to feel safe at the same time. 

It's a big deal when you're highly sensitive. It's extreme, I know, but I think it's quite real for many of us. We literally build ways of dodging energy. It's wild. Entire lifestyles, jobs and ways of being in the world can wrap around these reflexes. 

I'm not saying my journey is over, far from it, as I continue to press forward and learn more and more. 

Since seeking out tools to be able to show up WITH all of my perceptions instead of dimming or blocking them, I am more and more able to relax and not take every little thing so seriously. Not HAVE to take it seriously, rather. 

And it's basically, no matter what the actual physical look is, the real message I've translated into my own story is the ability to be just whatever I am. And often times, that's being <wayway> sensitive and able to perceive a lot of things that I prefer NOT to perceive. And it's ok. There's ways to manage it. There's ways to Be my whole self and I'm grateful to my schools and my teachers and the wild places I've had the courage to travel to because they have helped me so much in what has seemed like a very long journey. 

So, HAY! Check me out! Cute pose! Wink Wink

Please don’t hesitate to reach out and share your own story with me. I’d be honored to hear about the fears and victories which have defined your lifetime and your experience of being a sensitive you.

Why Your Cord-Cutting Ceremony Didn't Work

So, you’re ready and standing on the precipice of a moment in your life, ready to release the past and


 

make your own choices instead of being bound to something old and worn.  You’ve got the skills in place and you have the belief in your own sovereignty and potential.  

You cut the cord and soon after realize that it didn’t hold.  

Your body feels the same and the person, group or event is still behaving in the same way as though it never left in the first place.  

What happened to change the results or why didn’t it hold?  

This is a really in-depth question and one that deserves a closer look.

Here are 3 possible reasons it didn’t completely go away or was re-corded, despite your best efforts.

To begin, there were probably more layers to the issue involved than just the one cord. That cord was only connecting one of your chakras to one of theirs and there could be cords in multiple chakras.

While it’s hard to see for yourself, it may also be that there is something much older inside of you that is actually the cause of the cord. 

In that case, this will be an older cord, so look back and let your awareness float to the answer. It will be a cord with a person or an event. The beauty of using your imagination to do this work is that you have a great deal of access to the information you possess, especially when you’re not trying to analyze it.

Allow your imagination take you to the older cord and take a look at how it’s effecting you before you cut it. This older one will have the juice. It will have been in your life for a while. It’s been there for so long, why not take a moment to research it and see what it’s been up to.  

Secondly, in some cases, it may be that cord was reinstated because the other person doesn’t want to let you go.  This can be quite tricky and can feel defeating.  It’s not a pretty picture when someone is keeping you locked in an energetic exchange.  

When that is happening, it’s important to recognize that the cord you cleared with them is different from the karma you have together. In the same way that you cut a cord, you can also clear karma.  You can recognize that the cord is one effect of the karma and the karma is the glue. 

You can clear the karma by using your imagination to ask your akashic record keeper to do the work.  She is a part of you and you know her well, even if you’ve never spoken with her before. You can ask her to help you and sit back and observe any sensations you feel in your body while that is happening.   

Lastly, the ceremony might not have worked because it takes time to develop these skills.

It’s often the case that though you intend for something to happen, you didn’t have the skill level to yet to really do what you wanted.  

It takes a lot of practice to create the physical world with thoughts and imagination. 

Rest assured that Focus leads to efficiency which brings about tangible results.  We’re often so busy just wondering if the thing we thought we did actually happened that we’re not quite at the level to really make it happen.  Once you can go beyond that need to validate the situation itself, you are able to apply greater focus during the actual ceremony.  

Cutting cords really is an effective tool to use on your own or with the help of others. It’s ok if it doesn’t clear or “cut” on the first try and it’s a good idea to keep yourself calm and simply take further steps to either repeat the process or look more deeply into why the cord was there in the first place. You won’t come up short in the long run when you practice these kinds of imaginative tools as you will be gaining in the strength of your own clairvoyance little by little, cultivating your abilities with each step.

Why You Can't Get Your Sensitivities Under Control

You’re the one always healing yourself, thinking you have the problem, wondering if you will ever actually feel good in your own skin.

There’s a really good chance you are not the reason you feel so out-of-control.

It could very well be that your sensitivities to the world around you are causing you to take in too much energy that does not belong to you.

If this sounds like you, check out these 7 key causes you may find helpful to learn:

1.You’re not seeing the environment as the important role it is.  

It’s hard to see how much the world around you can actually press-into your energy.  When you feel agitated or depressed it’s hard to understand how much of these experiences are actually yours.

Your energy field is 2 feet out, around you.  When you know what your personal space is, then it’s easier to know when it’s been invaded, crowded, slimed or pooped in.


2.You don’t have a personal space to begin with.  

That’s fine.  We weren’t taught these things. 

If that’s you, begin to create it for yourself using your imagination.  Visualize an egg-shape space, 2 feet out around you and choose a translucent color to wear inside. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just playfully put one up.

This is your space and you get to decorate it, the way you want to.  You call the shots and you get to say who, what, when, where, and how your energy functions at any given time.  If this seems impossible, just begin with baby steps; just begin by validating that your imagination can lead to tangible results. 


3.You’ve got too much of other people’s stuff around you. 

When your environment is colored by the opinions, emotions and will of others, this leads to out-of-control feelings and experiences because by very nature you are not in control, they are.  It takes a certain amount of understanding and skill to remove them from your “space” though it’s quite natural to need to do so in order to live your own life and have the strength it takes to go after your dreams.  

 

4.You’re not giving yourself enough credit.  

This is mainly due to the fact that you’ve probably never had your own “space”. It’s always been defined by others, so, your real talents don’t get noticed.  You’re busy hauling loads for everyone around you, making them look stronger and leaving nothing left for you. 

It can feel selfish and scary to think about pulling out of these types of relationships and agreements because they sustain you somehow.  As you begin to give yourself more credit, consider that this may be leading to physical depletion and causing you to doubt the parts of your sensitivities that are actually very powerful.  

5.You’re too hurt from the past. 

This is another way that energy can collect around you and define your personal space and thus your actual life-direction.  When things from the past are not “cleared” energetically, this will lead to blockages and stagnation in the space around you.  If you’re not aware enough, you simply think this stagnation is a result of you.  In some ways it’s accurate because the hurt that happened, happened to you. 

The thing is, the energetic space around you needs to be freshened often; it can’t withstand that kind of build-up.  You’re designed to contain the energy of the present-moment which is far more than just a concept, it is an actual “sight” of the space around you. 

The “actual” part takes you validating  that the unseen is real.  


6.You don’t have any tools. 

That’s because the information has been lost for everyone; very few people know how to use these kinds of psychic, energetic strategies. 

They involve using the imagination to alter the course of your life experiences to suit your own goals and intentions. 

It bears mentioning that when using these tools, it’s best to know the rules.  It’s essential to know the natural laws though you don’t have to have a PhD in quantum physics. 

For example, there’s a lot that’s possible in the realm of magic (focused imagination) that ends up creating more of a mess.  We have to have guidelines so that we don’t hurt others or earn more karma for ourselves.  

This isn’t to say that practicing tools you learn isn’t totally appropriate to do right away.  I’m encouraging you to notice that there’s a lot to this stuff because if you really consider it, the real thing that’s changing is that you’re bringing yourself into your full power through your sensitivities and with that power, comes responsibility.  

 
 

Psychic Tool Series: The Grounding Cord

The cause and cure of many a sensitivity to the environment and to relationships of all kinds, the Grounding Cord is a magical solution for sensitive souls.

Known by many a name in many a circle, this gem of a skill is something that cannot be ignored.

By using the imagination, it becomes a visual image that acts upon the physical senses. That’s why it seems like magic because it’s using the unseen anatomy to create a physical response.

In fact, it’s a very natural thing and is a part of the way that we are human…instead of it being just an after-thought or something we’ve had to invent in order to survive the onslaught of our modern world.

These are tools which have been forgotten; this information of how to care for ourselves on the energetic level. As you learn these tools, you transform the sensitivities into points of great power.

The Grounding Cord is imagined from the hips all the way to the center of the planet, securely fastened at each end with a release valve, allowing the body to flush any energy out of it which does not belong to you at that time.

Begin practicing at anytime to assist you in your daily life or on the grandest of adventures.
