Root Chakra

So last week it was my feet and today it seems important to develop what the root chakra needs so it is activated and in balance. I have been reading about three essences from Sabina Pettitt's Sea Essences range: Brown Kelp, Staghorn Algae, and the magical Sea Horse. It is the energizing of the spine that the Sea Horse helps us with; that wonderful position I find in meditation when my posture relaxes into the root of my being; the feeling I try and recreate to play wonderful long phrases in Bach's music (the Lute Suite today). This relaxation and repositioning relocates us back to our centre and brings wonderful clarity.

Feet and a new planet

I have been thinking about my feet since meditating this morning, trying to find the perfect place of balance to be aligned. It seems more and more important to me each day, in every walk of life: meditation, health, flute playing and being in the right place to meet people.. And what a lift I had to discover a new planet this week! New York Times

Meditation in schools

I read in the paper today about how Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was recommending meditation for school children to help with the world as it is today. Certainly these moments of silence and calm are a wonderful balance for me in this fast, speeding world. These moments of being bring so much wisdom, at whatever age.

Harmony and Balance

Inspired by Steve Johnson's workshop last weekend, I have spent this week working with the Bagua and the new Alaskan Flower Essence cards. It is amazing how these cards have brought a new dimension to the essences. I am adding music to each section of the Bagua, while working on the different areas in my own home. Starting in the Wealth area, I have been working with the energy of Round Leaved Sundew (Drosera rotundifolia) and Bach. May this bring harmony and balance to us all!
