Good Morning Dear Friends,
When we think of November we image winter and pulling inwards. But life and all it's mystical workings are constantly beckoning us, pushing us towards new lessons and growth. Every step we take, we move closer to our highest selves, even introspective times like these.
We do this my using every experience, (both what we have deemed good or bad), and every lesson to shape us. We all experience cycles of intense accelerated growth and slower cycles where we shift our focus inwards to assimilate the lessons and experiences. It is through these cycle we truly transform. So even though you may feel that you are slowing down now, realize that your still growing and moving forward. Relish this time and know that you are healing.
May the next few months be a period of magnificence transformation for all of us!

If the solar Plexus chakra is blocked, then you likely feel easily depressed and rejected and possibly wanting to blame others for your feelings. You may not have much self-confidence or self esteem. You may feel that life is happening to you, not with you. Life has little to no meaning and you may feel your just “going through the motions.” Life is joyless and becomes something that must be endured or overcome.
Most people with a blocked third chakra are emotional chameleons. These people are always willing to change to suit the needs and wants of others around them, putting their needs last. This usually results in their own needs never being expressed, much less met. If this behavior continues it can lead to less than balanced or satisfying personal relationships.
Most of us are taught from early childhood to repress our emotions and feelings. We must always be polite, think of others and repress what we feel for fear of hurting to angering someone else. Many of us are taught to put other people’s needs before our own. Servitude is taught or at least implied as a means to a fulfilled life.
Society also teaches us that we must always be practical and wary. Always guard against people trying to take advantage of us or exploit others. We are taught that we live in a restricted society where people will often take advantage of one another. The media reinforces this ideal so this problem is very difficult to overcome.
By repressing the solar chakra, you place yourself on auto-pilot and this can cause severe emotional problems. Doubt and mistrust will eventually destroy your vitality if this continues. You may miss out on life experiences because of this blockage and find yourself becoming bitter or resentful of others.

Why is living a purposeful life import?
It Gives Your Life Meaning
When you decide on your life’s purpose, it gives what you do a lot of meaning. Every step along the way, and all the work you do towards reaching your goals, serves to bring you one step closer. It becomes much easier to get things done, when they are done with purpose and with a firm goal in mind. Life then flows and joy can return.

I must admit when I came upon a sale of Yellow Obsidian - I had never heard of it. I was looking to buy several pounds of yellow claclite for the current Chakra Course I am teaching. But my trusted gem wholesaler suggested these gems instead. She assured me I would love the stones.
Was she right?
While I’m speaking honestly with you I will admit to having a slight addiction to Obsidian already, mostly snowflake. I have spheres, points, tumbled stones and jewelry, need I say more? So the thought of adding to my collection was intriguing, but yellow obsidian? WTH? If you are obsessed with stones too, then you probably know that black is the most common color of obsidian. However, it can also be brown, tan, or green. Rarely, obsidian can be blue, red, orange, or yellow. The colors are thought to be caused mainly by trace elements or inclusions. Meaning this yellow obsidian is a very rare stone.
When the stones arrived I was immediately transfixed! If you follow me on SC (Sarahpthomas) then you saw (and asked me questions) about the many snaps I posted of these cool stones.
But What Do They Do?
These cubes of yellow goodness are said to be great for protecting children, especially from bully’s and a great aide in getting to the “root” of whats really bothering you.
People also say they are great for anyone lacking self-esteem and are often used to boost self awareness. They are also used by healers to help calm and center oneself prior to energy working. This is done by holding a tumbled piece in your hand as you focus on your breathing and clear your mind. Almost instantly you will feel calmer and more self assured.
They also help one connect to their 3rd chakra energies in a gentle way. Making them perfect for third chakra work.
If you want to add a piece to your collection jump over here to the stone page and grab yours before they are all sold out.
Do you ever feel like you’re just "going through the motions" in life? Are you tired of feeling tired all the time? Or like you’ve become a passenger in your own life, being swept away by some unseen current? Do you no longer feel like you are in charge of your own life?
Maybe you made a decision to put others first and or to put your dreams on hold for your spouses career or your children's needs? And now there is an unsettling feeling of frustration and it could be growing into anger and quiet resentment. Have the children or perhaps your spouse left and you are attempting to redefine your life or are you feeling a bit lost or unsure on the route to take to get your fun loving, happy self back? Are you ready to celebrate “me time" but don’t have a clue where to begin? You are not alone. And the reason for these bewildering feelings may not be what you think...
Did you know "off balance" or blocked chakras can cause mental as well has physical maladies? Literally leaving you feeling burned out, anxious, fearful, apathetic or lost? Or that a few simple changes can make a huge impact on your wellbeing and ignite your love of life again?
But let me clarify this - I’m talking about REAL, LONG LASTING CHANGE, not temporary fixes or the same repeated advice you see copied and pasted over and over on line; but real information that is key to true, lifelong change. So if you are feeling empty, frustrated or generally like something is missing in your life or if you have studied the chakras and know has be more to it, then don’t miss this new course!
In the newest Chakra Master Course we will begin an in-depth five (5) week immersion of the wisdom of chakras and of balancing the third chakra to restore harmony to your life. During this course we will analyze and overhaul this ancient power center. Working together we will examine and repair life long damage, as we learn affective ways to reignite your passion for life.
The third chakra governs issues of willpower, ambition, self and action. It is the seat of our ego and is responsible for our ability to achieve goals. This energy center is weakened by all forms of shame, embarrassment and self-consciousness. Our mental clarity, as well as the ability to learn new things or have new adventures/experiences are also part of this powerful energy centers functions.
Suffer from panic attacks? Bouts of bitterness, anger, rage, apathy or find yourself constantly overindulging in things? These are also indications of third chakra impairments and can be addressed and rebalanced. Did you know anxiety and low self-esteem often accompany an under-active Solar Plexus Chakra? And if we let these emotions fester, it can and will affect our other chakras, and by extension, our physical and emotional states? This often overlooked powerhouse can have a long lasting affect on our mental and physical health.
Physically, it supports your liver, pancreas, gallbladder, stomach and spleen. So it has a HUGE impact on how we experience life and the quality of life we live.
Really, all of your chakras work together to bring about a state of health and vitality. Thats why I have developed these Master Chakra Classes. Because balancing your entire chakra system will help to resolve blockages or imbalances in any one chakra and give you back the life you deserve!

In this short segment I am asked "How long does it take to learn Reiki?" "What is the oddest animal you have ever treated?" "Can you Self reiki?"
I'm sure the response for questions number one will piss off some folks, but that is how I feel.
Let me know what you think-
In this video we continue on with the Sacral or second Chakra theme.
