While you travel in your body, staying connected to the earth is vital. This connection grounds you, helping you feel connected and safe. It sustains your body and helps you feel comfortable. You feel in unison with the earth, able to move within it, explore it, and cultivate it. The earthy feeling of being a physical being promotes your sexuality.
At the center of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.– Lau Tzu
This Amrit-style meditation helps you find a safe place within, re-grounding in times of stress and upheaval. It introduces the intention “I can experience feeling safe and secure.” Relax and connect.
She had finally allowed her negative feelings to surface, feelings that had been repressed for years in her soul. She had actually felt them, and they were no longer necessary, they could leave. She sat in silence, enjoying the present moment, letting love fill up the empty space left behind by hatred.– Paulo Coelho
You are Unique
As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has or ever will have, something that is unique to all Time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.– Mr Rogers
The Manipura chakra is located about 3 inches above your navel. Its name means city of jewels, which may be due to the ganglion of nerves below the solar plexus resembling a jeweled necklace. Most chakras align with locations in the body where a concentration of nerves exists, and Manipura is no different. This neural plexus can process information separate from the brain, which is why you can say, “trust your gut.” It’s why you may have an upset stomach if you make a decision that goes against your higher self’s wisdom. Your Manipura chakra is communicating with you.
In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.– often attributed to Buddha
Traveling through life with curiosity rather than judgment is how one finds the magic in each moment.– Eric Chatters
Have you ever considered what it means to be powerful? Do you feel like you are powerful? Do you even want to be?
The fundamental element of the universe from which we are all created cannot be found on the periodic table. It can, however, be felt at the very core of our being and is stronger than what our five senses can detect: it is love. Everything else is optional and transient: love is essential and unchanging.
The human heart is now documented as the strongest generator of both electrical and magnetic fields within the body. We’ve always been taught that the brain is where the action is, but the brain is comparatively weak… The heart is 100 times stronger electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain. The reason this is important is because the world as we know it is made of those two fields. If we can change either the magnetic field of an atom or the electrical field of the atom, we literally change that atom- we change the stuff our bodies are made of. And the human heart is designed to do both, to change both the electrical and magnetic field of our bodies and our world, and it does so in response to the emotions we create between our heart and our brain… Every thought in the human mind sends out an electromagnetic wave from the base of the heart that has a measurable effect on the world in which we live.– Greg Braden
Love is learning someone’s heart song and singing it back to them when they need it most.– Hallmark Movie
Vishuddha means “pure.” Picture your throat as a channel for the energy that you are sharing with the world, the channel being clear, uncluttered and radiant. When you allow unspoken words to become stuck in this channel, it becomes cluttered and murky. When you speak words unnecessarily or unkindly, it loses its radiance, becoming dingy and rough. Each word you share is energy that you send out into the world. Some believe that, like all sound waves, each word you speak continues on for infinity. Its critical that your words matter!
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean.– Don Miguel Ruiz
The tongue has no bones, but is strong enough to break a heart. So be careful with your words.– Author Unknown
We are very involved with our five-plus senses gathering input from the world around us. But those same senses are also available for communicating with our soulful selves. Think of the front of the mind as the sun: yang-like, outwardly focused. The back of the mind is like the moon: yin in nature, inwardly facing. Like the moon, it is more subtle and more introspective.
The answers you seek lie within. Your inner sage speaks with quiet knowing in the stillness between thoughts.– Carin
The soul always knows how to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.– Carlin Myss
A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ —a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.– Albert Einstein
Your breath is the stitch that binds your body with your soul. Lovingly nurture it, and create a beautiful mosaic with all your life experiences. Wrap yourself in its rich colors and patterns, remembering all you are.– Carin
This 28-minute meditation focuses on freeing you from your physical self. It is from the YoGo Cultivating Independence theme.
Basmati, Alta Major & bringing it all Together
The inner tree is the Alta major, whose roots burrow deep into the root chakra, with branches reaching up to the crown.
Our breath is a reminder that we need balance in our life.Sometimes we’re meant to take things in, sometimes to let them go,Sometimes we’re meant to say yes, and sometimes the answer is no.in and out, in and out, our whole life we breathe,A reminder that sometimes we need to do and sometimes we need to be.– Carin Lockhart

If you enjoy learning about the chakras, there are many more directions you can go! The chakras are elemental in many ways, so like any truth, they surface in many teachings and disciplines. Here are just a couple, from quantum physics to energy healing modalities. You might try the two below, which are some of my favs:
