Harlow’s Head: Soulwork takes Solitude

“Women have to harness their power–it’s absolutely true. It’s just learning and to take the first no.  And if you can’t go straight, you go around a corner.” – Cher

Day Two: This is harder than I thought.

I miss my friend…

Yesterday, I actually picked up a book…ok five books because everyone didn’t fill the itch I’ve been craving lately with literature.  Today, I’m going to try to read a classic.  Maybe Hemingway or Orwell.

My writing, on the other hand, has been a struggle. I don’t know why the universe has decided to block my creative juices.  Curse you universe! Compounded by the fact that it’s below freeing outside! I’m Gaia’s child. I crave to be one with nature. Four walls and a handful of houseplants is not nature. :/

Healing the throat chakra.

A psychic median told me recently that my throat chakra was closed. If you are not familiar with chakras, http://www.chakras.info is a very informative site to visit and will also show you how to connect and “open” them. This was their behavioral characteristics of the throat chakra.

The Throat chakra is associated with the following psychological and behavioral characteristics:

  • Expression, in particular ability to express your truth, to speak out
  • Communication, whether it’s verbal or non-verbal, external or internal
  • Connection with the etheric realm, the more subtle realms of spirit and intuitive abilities
  • Propensity to create, projecting ideas and blueprints into reality
  • Realizing your vocation, purpose
  • Good sense of timing

I know you’re thinking, huh? Charka, originally called ‘cakra’, was first recorded in the Vedas, an large body of knowledge texts originating in the ancient Indian subcontinent. So, if I’m crazy, i’m in good company.

So, I meditated and repeated the mantra. “Let go of what does not no longer serve you.” It’s ok to be “me” first.  It’s ok to demand to be important.  It’s ok to not hide my true feelings. Than I screamed.  I’m not talking a wimpy girly scream, I’m talking a full open throat, deep breath, hold-your-hands-over-your-ears scream. When’s the last time you screamed on purpose?  I asked myself that and couldn’t remember the answer.  So feeling a little foolish, I made sure no one was around and I screamed.  I haven’t felt more alive in a long time than I did at that moment…

  1. I’m loving the new direction that you are taking on your blog.

    I’ve found that during these winter months that my connection to spirit/guides/universe kind of goes dormant. It’s like they too are saying “Fuck Jolene do you know HOW COLD IT IS? can’t your issues wait till spring?” hahaha. Hell, I get it but I know that they haven’t gone far, it’s our time to just retreat….hibernate and in a sense get the rest that our souls require. Just like Gaia, many of her flowers and plants are resting and guess what happens when Spring arrives everything comes to life. Just like YOU do when the warmer weather comes around and you are able to run barefoot outside.

    Just take a deep breath. Try some Kundalini Yoga…..no twisty movements required.

    Love you girl.

    1. Until the doc releases me I’m stuff meditating lol. One thing I’ve come to realize is unplugging from the outside world means you are stuck with yourself. Your doubts, your fears, your hopes, your dreams… I’m forced to like myself.

      I miss the connections but I know that in the end my connections will be stronger from this period of solitude. I’ve prayed, meditated, fasted, written (actually words lol), and read both fiction and non. AND I booked a vacation to the beach in March! Woohoo! Now I need to focus on my whiteness and the extra uh umm “baggage” I’ve acquired in the past few months. I miss the sun :(.
