Fire is a sexy element. It’s romantic, mysterious, alluring, curious, it blazes its own path and sometimes, even unstoppable. It consumes, terrifies, awakens, enlightens, motives, and transforms, it purifies. Fire is power and when you cultivate your own internal fire, it becomes personal power. The Third Chakra emanates the energy of fire, the Agni Tattva. It is the center of will-power, command, and control. It is the sun or shining jewel at the center of your being, your light. It is the force behind manifestation, the power given to take action and cause change. Third Chakra fire burns karmas, energetic blocks, emotional fears and attachments. It gives us the strength of commitment, discipline, and the ability to manifest by carrying out our intentions. It is the power to digest and assimilate both physically and emotionally and be nourished by the experiences as a whole.
Fire is the great motivator, an agent of healing and transformation. It's both the energy to protect yourself and the confidence to get what you need. It's the power that builds relationships, businesses, and empires, as well as the force that destroys them. When fire is present it works to define and refine your personal source of inner light. It will help you find your power and teach you how to use it for the greatest good. There is a saying, “You want to get rid of your anger. If you get rid of your anger, you won’t be able to digest your food.” The same capacity that causes us to get hot under the collar is what enables us to process food into energy and emotion into action. We can use this capacity to burn others, or to purify ourselves, from the inside-out. Strong emotion moves us to cause change, that we may experience a lightness in being and a strength of character because of that change. When the fire inside is not burning bright it can manifest as burnout, exhaustion, lacking motivation. It can also create a potential breeding ground for unused emotional content to lay dormant in the body. Emotional energy stuck in the body can turn inward on the self, producing physical imprints like acne, boils, inflammation and overall pain, leaving behind an energetic quality that is lackluster and lethargic.
Emotions are your navigation system, the barometer by which you sustain your personal power and balance. Sometimes, we perceive intense energy like anger as “bad, negative, or wrong” when the feeling arises into conscious awareness. We become judge and jury, condemning ourselves and experience before we can even grasp the message and potency of the intuitive information. What you feel is not good or bad, positive or negative, right or wrong. It just depends if you use it, in a way that benefits your life, destroys it, or avoid it completely and let it destroy you. Emotions are energy-in-motion informing you from the inside out. Embrace what you feel inside. Trust it. Do not hold onto it or hold it back, modulate it. Be mindful if it turns inward, harming the self. Trust in the wisdom of Third Chakra, the innate motivational system and fire energy to purify and transform. Let it move through you, inform you, spark and empower your person into right action.

I believe the most beautiful thing about life is that it is our greatest companion. Life is always present and active, even when the earth seems silent and the birds are at rest or the hustle and bustles of days are calm, life is awake, growing, pulsing and alive. Every day turns on, full of heart and soul, every moment activated and engaged. Life becomes the living example of how to live from our heart and carve our character in accordance with the Most-High.
Nature reveals the many processes of “intimately being” from the level of pure devotion. We are witness to natural progressions in gestation, develop, and growth. We see fragile forms of beauty rise from below soil and how rain and sun nurture land. Abundance abounds, surrounding life and all living things as they multiply and thrive all part of the natural source of love or heart energy. There is a quiet confidence in just being and when you tap in and connect with life around you, you feel its heart. A blanket of acceptance embraces the natural order of things. There is no bolstering of names or seeking approval for deeds and actions. No thought of lack, rushing, or self-destruction. Life keeps moving forward and preserves itself in a precious and fiercely brave way. Just like when two people love each other. When we live according to our truth, with our hearts wide-open, life becomes balance and love blooms.
The most beautiful thing about life is that it is our greatest companion.
It demonstrates faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is love.
Love is patient, love is kind-
It does not envy. It does not boast.
It is not proud, rude, or self-seeking-
It is not easily angered and keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth!
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails-
Now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE-
1 Corinthians 13 4:8, 1

TIS` THE SEASON OF HEART
December can be quite a magical month and fulfilling time of year. We get a chance to embrace the spirit of holidays and witness the wonder through the eyes of children and adults alike. Tis` the season of heart, when the world steps into a place of family, togetherness, and hope. It’s an end of a year that begins an active path into giving and receiving, rooted in a coming together of values and the essence of home. The season fills the atmosphere with magic; crisp air and snow falling from sky, lights aglow on streets and in homes, long gazes into loved one’s eyes by the crackles of fire and sparks of sweet-hearts. We take care, nestling into hearty foods like soups, stews, and hot chocolate. We bundle up with sweaters, scarves, blankets and loved ones and we find ourselves surround by light, the illumination of our hopes and dreams in the stillness of love within our hearts.
The heart symbolizes life, love and the engagement in partnership. The heart never leads alone... It never beats alone... One pulse follows the other in the direction of union. A sense of union requires partnership. We learn to connect and re-connect through the heart-experience, magnified between a pair of arms that allow us to reach out and touch what we love, while, cradled and comforted between two breasts that safely hold what we feel. We are given an opportunity to feel the magic of life, connection and harmony both, individually and collectively. The season of heart reminds us in order to create a spark of life, we cannot go at it alone. We simply relate and create in a blended continuum of wholeness. The heart does not beat alone... It does not lead alone... One pulse follows the other in complete unification.
This is a time of un-veiling, re-vealing, and an un-folding of self to the inner sweetness of comfort and warmth. It’s a reminder of the mother-child experience, the inner connection and bond of unconditional love. Our very own place to rest soulfully in the wonder and awe, completely disarmed and embraced in the natural state of being. The heart leads us to a clear passage and cleansing, a shedding of old, a point to nurture life and all that we live for. It is a space given in which to surrender, to lay down a clean slate, to be re-born in concept as we celebrate into the new, calm and cradled in the mother energy, inside the season of heart.

It’s time to get out of the “cookie cutter” version of what healing should look like and shift back into our own personal guidance and experience. Sometimes, the path to healing has us feeling off center and it’s cause for questioning but we forget, feeling off center is also for good purpose. The center balances opposing sides and reveals a place of wholeness. When the scale tips toward into the wound, the other side of balance is overlooked. The gift of wholeness is to be open and available to both sides and to integrate them into conscious balance. Your personal path to healing begins inside wholeness not in one side of experience. Let’s look at pain for example. I’ve thought about pain. Pain is real. Pain is relentless. It reveals itself through the body, not just inside it. It wants to be seen. It beckons to be heard. It tugs at you every minute of every day. Pain is restrictive, trapped in the body with no space for joy and we suffer. Pain is suffering, the physical manifestation of held in, held back, shut down and buried emotion. Your physical body can become the storehouse for ignored, unacknowledged and suppressed emotional energy. Pain is an internal broadcast system for the feelings buried inside, screaming to be heard. To be acknowledged. To be cleared. To be loved.
Every healing journey will not look the same. It’s a personal pursuit-
Have you ever sat with the inner voice of your own pain?
I have. Pain is a lot more than just what we name it. It’s a culmination of stuck emotions, blocked feelings, experiences, memories, unconscious belief systems and unhealthy patterns. Because of this, healing can be an evolution of all experience and acknowledging what exists inside you, begins the path that serves as a direction. All of it is important information to construct a very intimate healing experience. Sometimes the tendency is to give up because you don’t like what you see and it can be hard to move through. This is when healing becomes dedication and time becomes discovery. I thought about pain. I’ve had pain. I’ve worked with pain and then it occurred to me. It came into me like a whole being awareness. The other side of pain, is pleasure. Pleasure. What a revelation! In all these years, it never occurred to me that pleasure was a root deficiency to my experience of pain. I was totally invested inside the pain that I missed out on any form of pleasure. I never embraced the joy of life and in being because I never thought to look at the other side of what the experience of pain had to offer.
I thank God for that moment in wholeness. It moved me. Pleasure was now in the game and enjoying my life became priority. When you embrace the other side, you stop brow beating the wound. You cease falling back into rigid, perfectionism disguised as discipline and the “trigger” has a place to go, a space to flourish. My personal healing did not look like the ideal or what I had anticipated. I found rest. I witnessed no more pushing into life or wanting to force forward. I could feel the grip loosen, I allowed some fun and sweeter foods, exercise was no longer a bloodbath but now conscious movement based on my needs for that day. Yes, I gained some weight but I also embraced that weight and loved myself anyway. My healing journey through pain helped me find a better balance within myself, a conscious balance. It helped me find the opening to the possibility of having pleasure move through me and integrate it into my experience. When you make your healing journey personal; it moves you, it changes you, it transforms you into a state of inner-conscious being. Shift away from the “call to action” approach to healing and move deeper into intimate understanding. Let that be the life-giving medicine you take in.
