I get it, they can be a little confusing. It’s taken me years of study to connect in a way that what color I wear supports me. Over my exploration of the chakras I have begun to understand that the foods I eat or yoga poses I practice support the energy I’m seeking for the day.
Until the last few years the chakras were something I thought about in meditation, when I was playing with crystals, but not when I was asking my guides for support in my day. I started really noticing the energy of the earth, society and myself. I realized that each decade the world seems to be processing through the earth’s chakras. I started to connect that my own journey and years were being led by the theme of a chakra and its energy.
That piqued my interest. It got me paying attention. I decided to dedicate a series of blogs and podcasts to share with you what I have learned along the way.
Want to learn more?
I have two ways you can!
1. You can sign up for an 8 part email series where you’ll receive a blog post and podcast link each week to help you learn more about the chakras one at a time. (all the links below will be sent to you via email)
2. Start here with the basics about chakras and go where you feel is right for you.
You pick how you want to learn.
The Journey Into The Chakras
Have you been feeling disconnected lately? Maybe not spending as much time outside. Disconnected from yourself, mother nature, your life?
It could be a block in your root chakra.
Our root chakra, Muladhara, is where we find our connection to earth, along with the safety and security of our roots, both literally and metaphorically. (plus a whole lot more)
Read more about the root chakra on my blog
Listen to the conversation with my guest, Amanda Monnier, and I chat about our journey to find our OWN safety and comfort as adults by growing to create a strong root foundation.
All things I struggle with and I’m willing to bet, lots of other souls do too. Maybe you experience the other end of the spectrum – very emotional or irritable. Yep that’s part of a sacral imbalance too. It’s not just hormones, I promise.

Creating self-transformation comes from being in flow and the sacral chakra. Natalie Bitton and I chat about our journey to learn to flow with life and all it brings. Listen Now
Solar Plexus Chakra
Read more about when our solar plexus is formed and why it’s so important we let go of limiting beliefs in my blog.
Stepping into your purpose and passion becomes easier when you listen and allow yourself to be guided by the Solar Plexus Chakra. Dreana Nealon and I chat about how the signs our body and spirit give us to connect to the third energy center. Listen Now
Having an open and compassionate heart in today’s world (ok any time in human history) is a challenge. Yet, that is why you are here in this life, at this moment, reading this post because you are here to open your heart, to be led by your heart and to share love with others.
The explanation of heart work is really easy to understand yet harder to comprehend the steps to practice love and compassion.

Heart opening is a journey that is well worth the challenge as Melanie Wood shares about her experience of getting curious in the face of fear, surrendering to the opening, and using meditation and the Heartmath process to do the work of opening her heart and time LOTS and Lots of time. Listen Now
The throat chakra is connected also to our ears, to being able to listen.
Throat chakra was really important to me in a recent experience of listening to what I needed and being able to share that. I hope you find some guidance through my experience – read about it on my blog.
Expressing yourself can be tough! A clear throat chakra isn’t being able to speak in public. It’s listening to your heart, being comfortable being you in your solar plexus, following your sacral’s desires, and knowing how to claim your space in the world. Liz Phillips and I chat about the journey to do just that in an episode of the Grounding Journey podcast. Listen Now
Third Eye Chakra
Understanding the third eye energy is connecting to your inner wisdom. It’s trusting yourself to ask your spirit and heart what she needs and believing the answer you feel or hear is your answer.
Trust is a practice we build and strengthen over time.
I share more with you about learning to trust your intuition and yourself in my blog about the third eye.
The third eye and intuition sounds big. I chatted with Jihan Marcotullio, about trusting your own inner wisdom. An open third eye can be as simple as listening to the whispers of your soul and trusting that what you hear and feel is where you’re being guided instead of having a vast spiritual experience.

Many believe that through the crown you are able to connect to the Divine, your higher power. But it goes a little deeper than that… when you awaken your body through movement or meditation practice, consciously open your heart through expansion, and connect with your wisdom, you connect with the Divine.
The deeper you journey into the crown, the understanding that you are not only connected to the Divine, but the Divine resides inside of you reveals itself in a way that you can never forget.

In the final installment of the chakras podcast I do a solo episode, I’d love you to listen in.
