Before talking about healing stones, make sure you read the article on the chakras that eye posted in January of 2015

The 5th chakra is what we will be talking about today.  Its color is blue. This chakra deals with the throat and its surrounding areas on every level; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. That is to say, that the 5th chakra is related to the throat, the larynx, the teeth, sore throat, strep throat, communication and anything related to the mouth and throat.

When the throat chakra is blocked it looks dull and it hardly spins when looking at it through the spiritual realm. You know your throat chakra is blocked when you have any ailment in the mouth, like the ones mentioned above but not limited to those. It is also easy to tell if your throat chakra is blocked if you have communication problems with others.  If the chakra is not cleared one can even develop cancer. It is very important to clear all of your chakras for a healthy lifestyle: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Most throat chakra blockages begin with communication. Whether it is inner  (your thoughts, how you feel about the efficiency of your communication, etc) or outter (how you actually communicate with self and others. Keep in mind that negative self talk will also block your throat chakra. If you gossip, laugh at others expense, have cruel jokes, don’t communicate your desires effectively, let others talk over you, over speak, don’t speak up when necessary, for example, are ways many of us block or clog our throat chakras.

There are easy ways to unblock your throat chakra. One way is by wearing the color blue around the throat area. This would include blue tops, blue earrings, and blue necklaces. Another is by speaking only positive things. Next, would be by thinking positively. Not allowing negative self talk is a huge one. Do not downplay yourself. Instead, encourage yourself. No one is perfect and we all have room to grow. With practice anything can be achieved! Know when to speak up and when not to engage in conversation. Let your desires and emotions be heard. Communicate them effectively and lovingly. Especially, with friends, family, coworkers,self and most definitely with your partner. Holding things in that should be communicated will have negative effects. The more you let hold it in, the worse it gets.

Here, eye will include various healing stones that eye sell to help one with the throat chakra. However, eye do not sell Indicolite or blue tourmaline at the moment. My favorite of the following is blue lace agate because it is, in my experiences, one of the best to assist one in bringing up and letting go things unsaid from the past. One of my clients purchased a blue lace agate and from the moment she received it (with personalized reiki) her throat started to tingle and she called her roommate into the room n started crying about things she was holding on to from her childhood. She spoke to her roommate about it for 2 days. On the third day, her throat no longer tingled and her throat chakra was clear. If you’re willing to put in the work, the stone will be a great asset to your healing and growth.

Eye created these descriptions with my knowledge of stones and information from “The Book of Stones” by Richard Simmons and Naisha Ahsian.

Indicolite(Blue Tourmaline) 5th and 6th Chakras, (Throat and Third Eye, respectively). This stone is blue in color and very “quartz looking”. This stone can be used as an aid in meditation and the expansion of consciousness. Indicolite strengthens the psychic gifts- clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, prophecy and spirit communication. It is an excellent tool for those who wish to become a medium between the two worlds. Assists one in easily opening their third eye at their own place when placed on the third eye during meditation. Because of its blue color it allows one to easily communicate their messages from the spirit realm. In the subconscious it helps one to find the best way to communicate what is necessary. This stone can be used to achieve higher levels of alternate dimensions, if one needs to be grounded you can use a black tourmaline to bring you back to earth in full capacity. Indicolite’s innergies can be augmented by combining with stones such as; lapis lazuli, blue chalcedony, lazulite, aqua aura quartz, Siberian blue quartz, and/or sodalite. This stone aids in Zen filled meditation and a peaceful state of mind. It also helps one release attachments one may have to outcomes as well as to the past. Spiritual: this stone aligns the mind with Divine innerg. Stops overactive thinking to allow the development of pure awareness. It can assist one in communicating with higher beings on matters of healing and spiritual development. Emotional: helps one innerstand the root cause of emotional trauma or emotional imbalance. It is ideal for exploring past lives in order to attain the cause to karmic experiences. Physical: this stone works particularly well for headaches and migranes. Helps one find the spiritual imbalance to physical ailments.

Lapis Lazuli: 6th and 5th chakras (Third Eye and Throat, respectively). This stone is blue in color with gray and white inclusions. Known as a stone for being very eclectic. It has been used for many things, from eye shadow, to medicine and clearing negative thoughts. It carries the vibration of the inner “king” and “queen” inside of us. This stone is perfect for achieving deep inner travels and attaining deep knowledge of self. Lapis activated the psychic centers in the third eye. Opens up the doors to intuition and spiritual guidance. It is a stone of visual awareness. Enhances intellectual ability thus making one a better learner and teacher. Aids in the throat chakra, therefore, assisting one in speaking truth in all situations. An ideal stone for initiation into the higher realms. Assists one in recalling past lives, thus, helping one in their struggles during this incarnation. Works very well with Moldavite for identifying one’s higher purpose. Alexandrite and Oregon Opakl help one open the portals to past-life memories. Harmonizes well with Turquoise, Rhodochrosite, Sugilite, Chrysoprase, Pietersite, Rhodonite and Larimar. Helps one learn more efficiently as well as memory retention. Helps one gain access to the Akashic records. A stone of self-knowledge and reflection. Spiritual: awakens the third eye and enhances one’s ability to visualize and receive visual guidance or information. Enhances meditative journeys and allows one to experience past and alternate-life viewing. A stone for clairvoyance and precognition. Emotional: helps one to identify habits, patterns, and lessons one may have difficulty perceiving consciously and which may be blocking one’s spiritual ascension. Physical: helps one identify the karmic root of disease. Particularly helpful in identifying habitual thoughts, patterns and emotions that limit one’s healing.

Turquoise: works with the throat chakra (5th). It is used to find wholeness and truth. It aids in the communication and manifestation of wholeness and truth. It stimulates and harmonizes the throat chakra making it easier to articulate and bring forth one’s deepest wisdom. Wearing it can empower someone who is shy to speak up because it makes one realize that we each have something powerful to share with others and the universe. It balances one’s self and induces a sense of serenity and peace. Holding it can help lift sagging spirits. This stone has the capacity to heal the emotional body, relieve stress, and bring the focal point of awareness to its proper center in the heart. Teaches the wisdom of compassion and forgiveness. Works harmoniously with Gem Silica, Shattucktite, Chrysocolla, Ajoite and others. It is on friendly terms with all Calcite, Smithsonite and Hemimorphite. Larimar is a near perfect complement to Turquoise in regard to soothing and healing the emotional body. Spiritual: Turquoise is like an ancient grandfather ally, counseling one that all experience are valid and that mistakes are simply another experience. It reminds us that wholeness can only come when we are willing to embrace the totality of who we are and what we have learned on our Earth walk. Emotional: Turquoise is a stone for self-forgiveness, self-acceptance, and the release of useful regrets. It encourages one to honor oneself as a creation and a tool of the Divine. Physical: helps oxygenate the blood and increase the amount of prana (in Hinduism- breath, considered as a life-giving force) in the physical body.

Blue Lace Agate: throat (5th) chakra. This stone is blue in color with either traces of white or a mixture of white. This stone is beneficial to those who have difficulty making themselves heard by others, or who wish to become more articulate in their speech.

Metu Neter: Vol 1, Introduction: The Hemispheres of the Brain Part 2

page ten hemispheres of the brain

Welcome back! On this post we will be looking at the second part of the “Hemispheres of the Brain” portion of the first chapter of the Metu Neter vol 1 by Ra Un Nefer Amen. Part 1 of this section may be found here.

Paragraph 4: Nefer Amen begins to quote from the book Bantu Philosophies.

Paragraph 5: The author begins by stating that the concept of individuality is foreign to Bantu thought. The Bantu people believe that every created being has an intimate ontological relationship with each other. That is to say that they have a bond similar to that of creature and creator. In other words, a bond that is strong and stemmed from a higher place. The Bantu ideals do not tolerate the thought that a created being is separate from its creator and other created beings. They believe that there is a strong connection between every created creature or living being. The connection is not limited from human to human but extends to animals, nature and the forces within and around them.

Paragraph 6: Janheinz Jahn writes in Muntu the following: 1. in a traditional sense the world view is one of harmony. 2. it is not a worldview in the European worldview because the world we live in is a product of the thoughts and experiences of those who shape it. 3. to the European it is an extraordinary view while being very common to the Bantu. 4. the word harmony can not adequately reflect a world view because it is too vague. to say that everything is in harmony is even less vague and further solidifies the aforementioned statement.

Paragraph 7: A yoruba writer named Adebayo Adesanya writes that the Yoruba principles do not allow them to separate faith and reason or science and God. It is common to separate these things in the Western part of the world but not for the Yoruba. They are both mutually dependant upon the other and live in balance.

Feel free to leave a comment telling us about your opinions and thoughts. If you agree or disagree and why. Eye was raised in America, therefore, eye grew up believing the Western way of thinking was correct until the recent future. Eye discovered that we are all connected through an out of body experience. Eye felt in one instant eye was connected to every tree, every mass of water, every animal, and every human in the universe. Eye also had a reiki session where it was revealed to me that eye had been burned at the stake because of my abilities in a past life. eye started looking into Wicca and found that it is mostly a connection to nature, the moon and the elements. This made it easy for me to accept the ideals of the Yoruba culture in this lifetime.

When Conservation Threatens Indigenous Peoples

No one thinks about things like this. Like when they Olympics were in Sweden the other year. They displaced A LOT of people just to put that stadium up. But if its done for entertainment/sports or under some government agency no one bats an eye. That karma isn’t going to be good.

Longreads

But the Maasai of Loliondo are not alone in disputing these supposed benefits. Worldwide, 8 million square miles—a landmass almost as large as the entire African continent—have been classified as protected areas by governments and conservation groups. In turn, the locals have mostly been pushed off their lands. Though no one formally counts people displaced for the sake of environmental preservation, data from the UN and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature on park footprints and population density estimate that the total number of removed people could be near 20 million.

These are our world’s conservation refugees—from the Dominican Republic to Kenya, Bolivia to Brazil. They are the Batwa of Uganda, who were forced out of their native forests when they were falsely accused of killing silverback gorillas. Many are now squatters without access to water or sanitation, living on the edge of parks that protect the…

Metu Neter: Vol 1, Introduction: The Hemispheres of the Brain Part 1

We have started the first of four volumes of the Metu Neter. We have already looked at the authors preface,and we are currently dissecting the introduction the first chapter. Read part 1 here and part 2 here.

This blog post will be the first part of the “Hemispheres of the Brain” section of the introduction to the first chapter.

Paragraph 1: Western Scientists have determined that the brain is separated into two sections. They are opposite of each other but they also compliment each other. This means that they are different and separate but they work together to achieve a purpose or goal. One side of our brain connects everything from the molecular level to the whole while the other takes the whole apart and dissects it. The first side eye mentioned corresponds to the right side of the brain and this side is the one that “connects the dots”, in a manner of speaking. It is the side that takes the phonetics in your words to make a full word, then into a sentence and so forth. This is the side of the brain that allows comprehension to take place. The second side, the left side, is the one that deciphers between spoken words and thoughts. it allows us to think and speak verbally, or out loud. One does not simply speak or think. These things occur one step at a time and at a very fast pace. Because the process takes time and each step occurs at a different time, these are controlled by the left side of the brain as it is the one that is in charge of segregating or separating the whole. The right side of the brain is in charge of putting the pieces together so that one can comprehend what they are seeing, hearing, etc. This occurs in one step, unlike the left side of the brain; which separates information.

Paragraph 2: The author, Ra Un Nefer Amen, goes on to summarize that the left side of the brain is the one that notes the differences between things as well as sequential phenomena. That is to say that it is in charge of putting things in order cohesively or smoothly. Most know this as the analytic part of the brain. The right side of the brain is the one that unifies everything in relation to everything else. For example, it is the part that sees your entire living room piece by piece and combines them all to make them what you know as your living room. you dont see your living room in separate pieces because the right side of the brain combines them all effortlessly for you so that it makes sense. This is known as the holistic part of the brain.

Paragraph 3: Both parts of the brain work in unison to give us the experiences that we live daily. They both work together, even though most people tend to be stronger or more attached to one side of the brain than the other. The author gives 2 examples: the first is someone who possibly talks too much but has very little substance. The second is someone who barely speaks, but when they do, their words have ultimate value and depth. Next, the author describes how these differences are not randomly dispersed throughout society. He states that most men are more left-sided than women as well as the members of the Caucasian persuasion in comparison to non-whites, a fact that is backed up by Western psychologists. These differences are the main reason why we have cultural differences among the two aforementioned people. These differences have been the root to many historical events  as well. Without this concept there can be no science of history, psychology, anthropology, or understanding of religion, the author states.

In my next blog post we will go into the following paragraphs.

See you then!
