The AWAKE Festival was a beautiful weekend of connection and expansion!

Keep Your Energy Vibrating High to Stay in the Flow
Presentation at the AWAKE Evergreen Festival
Sunday, October 3, 2021

 We are more than our physical bodies.

  • We and all things are energy, therefore we can direct our own energy.
  • How do we optimize our energetic system so that we can be in our most expansive vibration, in the flow, regulate stress, support our physical health?
  • Working with the 7 best-known chakras, we can use breath, movement, visualization and nature to keep them balanced and clear.
  • The key is SLOWING DOWN & tuning in, TRUSTING SENSATION, LETTING GO of goals.
  • Nature is our mentor. Can we BE with nature without goal or purpose other than connecting and learning?

Here are some techniques anyone can use!

Establish a grounding Cord—a place for heavy energy to go

  • Sense a cord connecting from your tailbone all the way into the center of the earth.
  • It can be anything you want, a tree trunk, flower stem, column of light, etc.
  • Make sure it is connected securely to your body and also to the center of the earth.
  • Allow the cord to be as wide as your body.
  • Sense any heavy energy you would like to release dropping down the cord into the center of the earth where it is alchemized into wisdom.

Body Scan—You can sense energetic imbalances through your body

  • Connect to your breath and notice sensation
  • Try not to judge, just notice what feels sore, tight or off
  • You may be able to correspond the feeling in your body to one or more of the major chakras
