  • Dance music to stimulate each chakra.

We are not talking about any old dance or meditation. We are talking about a chakra dance and meditation that reveals you to yourself! A coming home to your own body/soul sense. That deep knowing that you lost along the road we call life.

Chakras are our life force or vital energy. Some call them “the spinning wheels of light" located all over your body. Although we have thousands of them, but there are seven major chakras located along our spine from the base to just above our head that we need to focus on. The role of the chakra system is to be able to regulate the flow of our energy force or what we commonly known as aura. Once our energy force is blocked due to the many challenges and emotional roller coaster we find ourselves in, it is not surprising that we get sick – not only physically, mentally, but also emotionally.

The chakras are wheel-like vortices of energy which connect the physical body to its subtle energetic counterparts. In this article we'll take a look at the seven main chakras, which play a key role in energy reception and transmutation.

The chakra system has been extensively studied and described in Eastern systems of philosophy and medicine, although Western science remains skeptical their very existence. Nonetheless, awareness of the body as an energy system is increasing among forward-thinking scientists, and the chakras along with meditation continue to play an important role in a variety of holistic healing disciplines.

Some student reviews from my other courses:

"This a beautiful course I highly recommend it!" Gayla M

"Wow! I'm so glad I took this course! Sharon's passion and enthusiasm are positively contagious!

Lets Start. Why You Should Do This Fun and Transformational Course
4 Lectures 27:49

Welcome one and all, Sharon Ramel with you here to assist you in creating balance and well being in your life. For more than thirty years I have taught both meditation and yoga tips to people so they can take control of their health and rehabilitation from injury or just when life delivers a bit of hard luck. Enjoy the journey and lets have some fun along the way.

Trace the river of life that flows through you, the luxuriously rising energies,
Gradually kissing each of the chakra centres along the spine, Savor each particle of color along the way. Enter each area tenderly, loving as you go and then finally, gently dissolving in the crown on the head.

Warning - Working with your chakra's can leave you feeling blissed out!

Just a quick word about the use of Sanskrit word to describe the chakras. You will come across many spelling variations in your own explorations. Sometimes you will see I have spelled the same word differently, this is deliberate so you can start to get a feel for the many variations out there. Apologies it is causes any confusion for you.

What to wear: If possible, for the dance segments remove your shoes, loosen any tight clothing. You may want to have a light blanket or sweater around your shoulders for the meditations.

Please download your PDF guide.

Please be aware that Udemy asks you to review all courses very early. Generally way too early to get into the nitty gritty of the course. You do not have to review at this time, it is your option to review later.

The best way I can describe how prana feels is to offer you this Yukti number 25 (yoga meditation practice) from the ancient Vijnana Bhairava Tantra body of work as translated by Lorin Roche. If you find yourself captivated them Amazon have the book in Kindle and paperback. It is called "The Radiant Sutra: 112 Gateways To The Yoga of Wonder and Delight" by Lorin Roche.

No discussion on meditation is complete without mentioning the Vijynana Bhairava Tantra. This 5000 year old ancient Indian text on meditation is considered by many as the last word on meditation.They leave me spellbound.

Radiant One,

The essence of life carries on its play

Through pulsing rhythm

Of outward and inward movement.

This is the ceaseless throb, the rhythm of life

Terrifying in its eternity, exquisite in its constancy.

The inhalation, the return movement of breath,

Sustains life.

The outgoing breath

Purifies life.

These are the two poles

Between which respiration goes on unceasingly.

Between them is every delight you could desire.

Even when the senses are turned outward,

Your attention on the external world.

Attend also to the inner throb,

The pulsing of the creative impulse within you.

(a yukti from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra)

Please ensure you read about this practice before proceeding. Ashwini is a simple yet very effective meditation practice to assist you in getting more in touch with your base chakra.

When to practice:
It is often recommended meditation and yoga first thing in the morning, and for good reason. Rising early, before others in your home can assure peace and quiet. Knowing that you will be able to have some time without interruption helps you to achieve relaxed state. There is also something magical about greeting the sun as it comes up. Early morning practice also sets the tone for the rest of the day as you align yourself with peace.
Alternatively, your schedule or 'wiring' may not be conducive to early morning practice. If that is the case, try different times and see what feels right.

Ashwini Meditation, prepare to enter into another realm of consciousness

Feel down to our mother Earth. Draw the energy up from the earth into your base chakra. Our outer lives are a reflection of our inner world. be open and observant to any issues surrounding the base chakra that are arising for you. Settle and allow them to pass - be the witness in your life. No longer lost in the drama and illusion.

Kriyā (in Sanskrit "action, deed, effort") most commonly refers to a "completed action", technique or practice within a yoga discipline.

This is a powerful Kriya for manipura or third chakra, the centre of confidence, willpower, self-esteem and self-worth. This kriya serves to clear energetic blockages to help you access your true power.

When you dance truly engage and dance the solar plexus, it feels like a golden volcano has erupted in your solar plexus, pouring its energy through your whole body.


Energetically, physically, emotionally and mentally, we are all powerful, radiant beings. However, we may not always be living from a place where we accept and radiate our own power. Sometimes we may feel like it would be easier not to have to interact and bargain and state our worth to people at all. Sometimes we may give in and accept less than we’re worth. These are all symptoms of an under-active solar plexus chakra.

  • To have this our heart chakra energy fully touch our daily life requires intent and practice. This begins within our self, for without the ability to love ourselves, we cannot truly experience love from another or give it truly to another. In loving ourselves we allow the intent to generate the feeling of unconditional love within us, and then to share this feeling with others. Whatever we send out is returned to us.

So - Personal sense of merger and identity

Hung - The infinite, vibrating and real

The Heart chakra's element is air – sitting outside and feeling the breeze upon your skin, allowing your heart to feel it can be very beneficial. Because the colour green is around us in the trees and in the grass, going out walking, or laying in the grass and allowing our heart to feel it, can begin to bring it into balance.This is a gentle movement meditation performed in a seated position.

The 5th Chakra, the Throat Chakra, represents our ability to communicate and express ourselves.Many of us struggle with clearing this chakra. Here is your opportunity to clear your throat and speak your radiant gentle truth.

Preview 00:29

The word "Bhramari" comes from the sanskrit name bhramar which is Humming bee. The practice of bhramari breathing calms the mind, reduces the stress or fight - flight response. It reduces celebral tensions, anger, anxiety, insomnia, The blood pressure is also lowered. This pranayama is very effective in speeding up the healing of body tissues and may be practiced after surgeries.

Bhramari pranayama has a calming effect on entire nervous system, especially it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which induces muscular relaxation and is very effective in stress management. So this pranayama is very effective for relaxation of body and mind.

In this pranayama we need to create a sound while exhaling and inhaling in the throat. The sound is similar to chanting of Om. The sound should be deep, steady and smooth. Inhalation is a more advanced form so please do not fret! Something to aim for.

The noise of bhramari's buzzing can drown out the endless mental tape loops that can fuel emotional suffering, making it a useful starting point for those whose minds are too "busy" to meditate.

Allowing adequate time gives you the ability to bask in the feeling of peace and calm created by your practice. Linger for a bit after your meditation and feel the effects in your mind, body, and spirit. Close with a sense of gratitude for the opportunity to connect with your true nature.

The Candle Meditation Technique

As you might have guessed, a candle meditation is practiced by gazing at a candle flame.

For some people this type of meditation is quite easy, as they find it easier to let go of thoughts when they are concentrating on a physical “thing” rather than on a mantra.

For others, this meditation can be a bit of a challenge - yes it can sometimes be tricky to keep your eyes open and focused on a candle without them blinking or watering. However, with a little practice, most people find that they gradually become very comfortable with this type of open-eye meditation.

One thing is for sure, this meditation is a fantastic way to improve your concentration skills, and it can lead you into a profoundly deep state of meditation if practiced properly.

Third Eye - Candle Meditation
06:47

The Third Eye Chakra's element is light. Sitting out in the beautiful sunshine with a blue sky can not only balance your third eye, but the throat chakra as well. You will be able to feel the sun radiate through if you focus your attention on the spot just above your eye brows! I encourage you t go outside and dance in the sunlight.

"I can see and think clearly, I see that all is well in my world. I see of the solutions to situations in my life and make positive changes now! I am the creator of my reality and my dreams are coming true. I am one with the vibration of the Infinite potential of the Universe."

Removing mental obstacles:
Many people think meditation will be difficult, not realizing it is simply a relaxed state of heightened awareness. Don't worry about whether you are meditating the right or wrong way. Every meditation experience is different. Experience thoughts passing through the mind like fluffy clouds passing through the sky. Don't follow or attempt to forcefully drive any thoughts; just passively notice them and let them go. If you feel any anxiety or distraction, just return to following your breath.

Spiritual Guide, Yogini, Mentor, Healer, Shaman, Witch

Offering spirit based courses to encourage kindfulness and peace within each and everyone of us. Every student is personally welcomed by me. In addition I perform a small sacred offering of drumming, rattling or chanting for every person to bring us into the sacred space of the courses. These course offerings have active discussion boards/forums. Please share your stories in our sacred space as they move to enrich us all. Let us plant the seeds of inspiration and love together.

I believe in “personal spirituality” and the ability we each have to create a path for ourselves that is of our own making. There are often criticisms against people who create a personal spiritual path for themselves, taking a little Buddhist meditation and adding in a bit of drumming, and then a healthy dose of yoga and some trance dancing for good measure. Interestingly, this is simply judgmental language to label this “cafeteria spirituality”. Whilst I do not advocate that people go from course to course, book to book, finding elements of the sacred within certain practices and adopting them is fine by me!

It is very empowering  knowing what we know in our hearts and claiming it, regardless of whether or not it is popular or approved of by others. Within my courses I try my best to provide the resources that support “the spiritual journey” because it is that Mystery that I serve. I am not inspired to serve something made by humans, controlled by humans, and manipulated by us so we can fulfil.

Weaving magic, spirituality and crafting with nature is the way of my ancestors. It is a gift we all have deep within the core of our beings. However it has been beaten and educated out of us. It is time to reclaim who we really are. What are you waiting for? Over 10,000 people have enrolled in my classes. 

I stand here with you all as a woman who embodies the elemental innocence of my youth, the transformational growth of middle age, the welcoming dignity, compassion, and acceptance of my crone years, I embrace the growth and  wisdom of my future years as they unfold.

Abundant blessings on your path.

I believe in the gift of giving back; a percentage of my income is donated to a range of charities. This month being December 2016 money has been donated to the global conservation group "Tree Sisters - The Million Trees Campaign" - this is a not-for-profit organisation working to assist and rehabilitate forests, their initial aim has been reached - to fund the planting of one million trees in a year. Once we have achieved this, we will then aim for One Million Trees per month, then per week, and then per day - which we will achieve when 700,000 of us are standing for the trees. Are you with us?

I have worked in the field of complementary medicine for over 25 years.
