    Balancing Meals – Third Eye Chakra Veggie Stir Fry with Plum Sauce The Third Eye Chakra is connected with spirituality and perception as well as the color purple. When many people think of the third eye they think of foresight and advanced awareness. While this can be the case, oftentimes someone with an open third eye is more receptive to their surroundings and they pick up on energy shifts faster than others. When the third eye chakra is blocked we experience a lack of concentration and focus. We find it more difficult to sense energies or process information as quickly. Our ability to channel or connect becomes limited, if not…

    Balancing Meals – Throat Chakra     Blueberry Lemon Pie The throat chakra controls our ability to express ourselves and live our truth. An unbalanced throat chakra may express itself in an inability to speak one’s mind, even when offered a platform to do so. Also creative issues such as writer’s block, or not having the wherewithal to work on an art project. In family settings this can be witnessed as a child backing away from a club they’re just not feeling into right now or a spouse procrastinating a work project when they’re usually very strict about a timeline. Even something as seemingly small as your child not writing…

    Chakra Balancing Meals Solar Plexus Chakra Chamomile Lemon Loaf with Lavender Glaze      The solar plexus Chakra is located in the gut and thus aids in who we are as a person, spiritual & mundane. It’s where we receive guidance that helps us make decisions, and is the core of one’s power. Much like with the heart Chakra, when our solar plexus is imbalanced we find it difficult to connect, accept on a more spiritual or personal sense instead of emotional. The stones associated with the solar plexus chakra are yellow calcite, tiger’s eye, pyrite, citrine and rutilated quartz. Kyanite can also be used as it helps align all of the…

    Chakra Balancing Meals Sacral Chakra Healing carrot soup The sacral chakra is one of creativity, emotion, and connecting with others. When this chakra gets blocked you can experience a lack of creativity and confidence, as well as difficulty forming meaningful relationships with others. In families this can be difficult to deal with. On the other hand if your sacral chakra is overactive you can still experience creativity but have no outlet for this creativity. For a long time I didn’t write or learn many new skills. After much thought and retrospect I realized that it all boiled down to self doubt. I didn’t do things because I assumed I would…

    Balancing Meals – Root Chakra   I have been called a kitchen witch by many and never truly understood what the term meant until it was explained to me, somewhat recently, as a witch who put all of their loving and healing energy into their food, and love to feed others with these caring energies. That just about hit the nail on the head. I love being in my kitchen making tinctures, salves, teas, and potions; I enjoy putting all of my loving and healing energy into them to help others heal. And I LOVE to cook. So of course I love creating good, healing food for those I care…
