Dear Viriditas Community,

Happy Easter my dear ones! Can you feel the “resurrection energy” in the air these days?

As I prepare for the upcoming St. Hildegard classes, I have once again been pondering the relationship between St. Hildegard and Volmar of St. Disibodenberg.

What a treasure it is when you have a dear friend who walks with you on your journey through life. Someone who supports and loves you. Who encourages you and gives you guidance. Someone who recognizes your greatness and lifts you up when you have self-doubt or fear, so that you can be an active and contributing part of community, sharing your divine gifts.

St. Hildegard had such a confidant, friend, and mentor in her life that supported her in following her divine calling, even when she felt incapable of doing so at times. Discover more about this friend in my blog post this week, The Gift of a Friend on the Journey of Life.

Would you like more support in your life? Come join our community and be inspired by St. Hildegard’s life and her words of wisdom for us in contemporary times. To recognize your greatness and move beyond self-doubt, within a supportive community. Healing with St. Hildegard classes start soon!

How to Bring Life to Your Chakras: 7 Healing Mantras

While developing your practice at home with chanting mantras, remember, saying affirmations inwardly (or outwardly, if you are able) throughout the day can support you in your work on healing a specific chakra.

Affirmations and any “I” statements that we make are potent and powerful words. I am, I feel, I have… these statements put into motion energetic forces to begin the creation of whatever follows these words. We CAN choose what we believe and think about ourselves. And what we say inwardly or outwardly about ourselves. We don’t need to perpetuate limiting beliefs or criticism about ourselves that we may have taken on in the past. We can change these, starting today. 

I encourage you, choose positivity. Choose health. Choose your highest and best self. Choose “I” statements that align with these thoughts.

Some “I” statements for balancing your root chakra that you may find beneficial throughout your day.

I feel deeply rooted in Divine Presence

I am grounded, stable, and standing on my own two feet

I feel safe and secure

I have what I need

I trust myself

I trust in the goodness of life

Interested in a list of positive affirmations for balancing all of your chakras? The entire guidebook for healing all 7 chakras will be coming out this Spring!
