3 Tools to Dissolve Fear and Anxiety

Dear Viriditas Community,

These next few weeks I am sending out some nourishing emails. My hope is you will find in them some insights and tools to improve the quality of your life. Enjoy! This week I am sending you:

3 Tools to Dissolve Fear and Anxiety

Do you sometimes experience a wave of insecurity about your basic needs in life? Not having enough?

Or maybe a wave of losing all that you have? An experience of being abandoned?

I know it’s not always easy to trust that life will provide for our needs of safety and security. When these feelings of fear and anxiety creep in, it’s always best to have some “tools in our bag” to help us get back to a place of balance and security once again.

Here are 3 of my favorite tools. They’ll help you enter into the world smoothly, trusting that the Universe will provide for your needs.

1.  Breathe

Breathe in, breathe out. So often we forget to breathe and breathe deeply! Our breath is our source of life.

When you inhale deeply, into your belly, you help your blood to be nourished, fueling your whole body. As you exhale, you let go of the waste the body does not need, detoxing your bodily systems.

Throughout the day, remember to pause for a moment to inhale slowly through the nose, deep in the lungs and belly. Exhale through the nose slowly. At the end of the exhale through the nose, open your mouth and blow out any remaining air in your lungs until they are empty. Breathe in deeply again through your nose and repeat. This expels all of the used breath and fills your lungs with fresh, new air. Supporting health and well-being in your body. Dissolving tension and bringing calm and relaxation.

I set a timer on my phone to remind me to do this practice!

2.  Lean on Mother Earth

While you’re breathing, imagine your hips, legs, and feet grounded within Mother Earth, like roots of a tree. If you’re able to, go outside and put your bare feet on the earth while picturing this. If not, simply picture it in your mind. While holding this image, say these affirmations to remind yourself to trust that the Universe will provide for your needs of safety and security.

I feel safe and secure. I have what I need.

I feel deeply rooted in Mother Earth.

I am grounded with the Earth, standing on my own two feet.

3.  Balance the Root Chakra with a Mantra

The root chakra, located at the base of the spine, is what supports us in being grounded or rooted upon the Earth. It is the Foundation of Life where we are safe and secure. Chanting a mantra that relates to the Hindu deity, Ganesh, associated with this chakra can help you to calm fear and anxiety and ground you in safety and security. Find a mantra connecting to the power of Ganesh for the root chakra HERE in my Free Healing Library.

These 3 tools will support you in feeling safe and secure. You’ll dissolve any doubts about your place in the world. Your day will seem to flow easily with the world, not against it! You’ll be able to breathe into the world easily, trusting that the Universe will provide for you.

As I finish writing this, I am noticing that I am breathing slowly and deeply. AHHHHHH……

Have a nourishing week.

In Viriditas,
Jeannine

PS  Breathe…….remember to breathe in, breathe out…

Dear Viriditas Community,

Do you have physical or emotional pain that you just can’t seem to get rid of? You’ve tried going to doctors and therapists and well nothing seems to be helping. You have lost track of all the countless things you have tried. Some days you feel hopeful that you will find a solution and then other days you are full of despair wondering will this pain ever go away or will you ever really feel carefree and happy. What is the pain about, you wonder.

I know how frustrating this kind of pain can be. You want to feel great so you can really enjoy your life and be all that you can be. You can. Sometimes the solution is a spiritual one. This has been my experience.

One of the spiritual tools I have used to help me in my life is mantra and that is exactly what I want to talk to you about today! Click here to learn how to use mantra for health and healing.

CHANTING WISDOM

David and I will be teaching next week at the Fox Institute for Creation Spirituality, and this is your last call to join us. Our class called Chanting Wisdom is based on the knowing that there are many wells of faith and knowledge drawing from one underground river of Divine wisdom. The practice of honoring, learning and celebrating the wisdom collected from these wells is Deep Ecumenism which respects and embraces the wisdom and oneness that arises from the diverse wells of all the sacred traditions of the world. This class will give you a powerful experience of Deep Ecumenism. You will learn chants from six different Wisdom Traditions and be given the resources to incorporate these chants into your daily life as part of your unique spiritual practice.

And remember that I have access to faculty sponsored scholarships of $500 so be sure to call me at 720 308 6782 if you are interested in attending! Click here to register now before it is too late!

BEAUTY…AWE…WONDER

David and I are now making regular time by the ocean part of our lives. We are currently spending a few days in Solana Beach just north of San Diego, and I am sitting by the ocean as I write this. We arrived at our condo just as the sun was setting, and I was able to take this picture. Breathtaking moment for me! Here in closing is David’s Sharpette (the short poetic form he has been creating for years) for sunset! Enjoy!

How to Bring Life to Your Chakras: 7 Healing Mantras guidebook and audio recordings. 

Dear Viriditas Community,

I’m very excited to offer you my guidebook, How to Bring Life to Your Chakras: 7 Healing Mantras which also includes the mantra audio recordings. These seven mantras are at the foundation of my spiritual practice. They’ve helped me release negative patterns that have held me back in my life. Each of the seven mantras is a spiritual jewel. May they sparkle for you too bringing vibrant life to your chakras!

There are two components to this program: There is a guidebook and there are also seven audio recordings. There is an audio recording connected to each one of the seven chakras. In the guidebook I explain the meaning of each mantra and also explain how to pronounce the mantras correctly. I share personal stories showing the healing power of working with this material. I also give you an overview of each chakra as well as guidelines on how to create a sacred space and time for your mantra practice. Each mantra invokes a Hindu deity or spiritual concept, and the guidebook has stories that offer inspiration connected to these deities and concepts to help you dive more deeply into the richness of the sound, phrases, music and meanings of each mantra. CLICK HERE to watch my video for a closer look at How to Bring Life to Your Chakras: 7 Healing Mantras.

My greatest joy in the creation of this material has been recording these mantras with my husband, David Sharp. His huge heart and profound spiritual life come through in his musical expression, and they have made this material even sweeter and more powerful. You’re going to love chanting along with the two of us!
 
I also want to thank those of you who were participants in the Healing With Mantra group sessions. Your beautiful voices and deep spiritual commitment made this project possible and kept me motivated. You are beautiful souls, and I love each one of you dearly.
 
My heartfelt thanks to my step-daughter, Danea Sharp, for both the cover and author photos. I feel so blessed to have such a gifted photographer in the family.
 
Many thanks also go out to Kelly Morrow who was instrumental in the writing of this guidebook. She helped me give structure and beauty to this project. Her warm heart, deep soul, and gift with words uplifted me every step of the way.
 
Finally, I want to thank my teacher Russill Paul. He encouraged me to step forward as a teacher of mantra. His guidance and his faith in me are gifts I’ll always hold dear.

UPCOMING EVENTS
Chanting the Wisdom Traditions, July 23 – July 27, 2018, Fox Institute

Dear Viriditas Community,

Do you like surprises? For most of my life I have wanted to know ahead of time what would happen and when. I hated surprises. They felt like a jolt to my nervous system and were to be avoided at all cost! Ahhhh, how things have changed…

As the years have gone by I have learned to let go of my attachment to specific things or outcomes. More and more I am realizing that I do not want to control my life or the people in it. I have come to trust that I can find peace, strength and joy from the loving energy that flows through me and all around me. Now, I can be open to surprises, all these miracles that happen every day.

Last week was my birthday. I was out in the garden watering the flowers and vegetables. When I finished and walked up the back porch stairs, I saw the vase of flowers from my husband, David. He was inside peeking through the window, patiently waiting for me to come up the stairs and see the flowers. When I saw them, I squealed and grinned. Such joy I felt course through my body.

I encourage you to fill your hearts with gratitude for the surprises in your life. Stop focusing on how things should look, or should be. Let the loving energy flow and be surprised!

My two children are full of surprises. Today is my son Joshua’s birthday. He is 17 years old now. As I write this, he is having his hair dyed! I do not know what color he will settle on. He is a composer and DJ and lives and breathes music. I now love to be surprised by his latest composition and yes, his latest hair color! For my birthday last week, he created a song complete with the sound of elephants. Here are the lyrics

 

Mom, mother of mine,
You so Divine, oh yeah!
Mom, it’s good to know,
That you’re on my side, oh yeah!
Mom, you’re the best,
you should know that yeah!
Mooooooom!

Mom, helping me out,
Whenever you can, yeah!
Mom, doing the most, yeah!
Being the best, yeah!
Mom, supporting my path,
Making me laugh, oh yeah
Mooooooom!

I invite you listen to this song by clicking here. You can enjoy more of his music on SoundCloud under DJBLONDINO

Tomorrow is my daughter Alicia’s birthday. She will be 23 years old. She recently surprised me and cut off all of her hair! I am giggling as I write this. She is currently living in Los Angeles and is an intern for Dignity And Power Now (DPN). DPN is a Los Angeles based grassroots organization founded in 2012 that fights for the dignity and power of all incarcerated people, their families, and communities. Their mission is to build a Black and Brown led abolitionist movement rooted in community power towards the goal of achieving transformative justice and healing justice for all incarcerated people, their families, and communities.

I now love to be surprised by the latest video that Alicia sends me of her latest march! I invite you to view this video she sent from the recent Families Belong Together Protest March. Those of you who have known me for many years will recognize the rap you will hear on this video. Yes, it is The Black Eyed Peas rap that I performed all those years ago. Those lyrics say it all! Here they are:

It just ain’t the same, old ways have changed
New days are strange, is the world insane?
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong
Nations droppin’ bombs
Chemical gases fillin’ lungs of little ones
With ongoing sufferin’ as the youth die young
So ask yourself, is the lovin’ really gone?
So I can ask myself, really, what is going wrong?
With this world that we livin’ in, people keep on givin’ in
Makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin’ each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin’ on, but the reason’s undercover
The truth is kept secret, and swept under the rug
If you never know truth, then you never know love
Where’s the love, y’all? (Come on, I don’t know)
Where’s the truth, y’all? (Come on, I don’t know)
And where’s the love y’all?

Here is a recording of me singing this glorious song: Where Is The Love? Sing with me you all, “It’s all we got….ONE WORLD!”

OK…dear ones…. I am off to get ready for our party tonight. We are having a barbecue for Josh and his friends and then we are all off to Denver to see The Book Of Mormon. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would see this musical three times! (Giggle) Gotta love those surprises!!!

In Viriditas,
Jeannine
