Please join us today, October 10 at 2 PM PST for Jai Cross’ broadcast on HumanSpirit Radio. His show is, “Exploring Sacred Topics,” and this episode is “Cultivating Sacred Passion.” To listen to the show, call (646) 478-4429 at 2 PM PST today.

Jai writes: “Most Westerners carry a backload of repressed emotions, as if dragging a heavy sledge behind them. By clearing out this unacknowledged and unexpressed baggage, we can live in wonder in the present moment. Once freed from old emotional residues and taints, an innate sense of wonder encourages us to fully feel our emotions as they arise, to express our feelings without guilt, and to live from our passions.”

About this series: Exploring Sacred Topics with Jai Cross is a deep investigation into parameters that influence our lives every day. Each month, you will be encouraged to deepen your relationship with the monthly theme by assessing your current situation and making conscious choices concerning how you wish to relate in the future. We will focus on each specific topic by

* discussing its importance and relevance to daily life

* performing specific energetic practices to awaken appropriate perceptions and awareness

* activating our personal potential to become and express more of our true selves

* promoting balance between body, heart, mind, and spirit

Every one of these Human Spirit Radio Network presentations will be available in audio and video formats, and you can listen to them in the archives at your convenience. As true of all HSRN offerings, these broadcasts are offered without any charge or obligation:

Please join us TODAY, June 13 at 2 PM PST for Jai Cross’ broadcast on HumanSpirit Radio, “The Seven Sacred Directions.” Today’s episode is, “Honoring Father Sky and Source.” To listen to the show, call (646) 478-4429 at 2 PM PST on Friday, or visit http://blogtalkradio.com/humanspiritradio.

Honoring Father Sky and Source: (This is the last episode of the Seven Sacred Directions. You can always listen to archived shows here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanspiritradio.)  Throughout the world, indigenous cultures venerate Sky as the place of helping spirits, guides, angels, and deities. When we open to Father Sky’s influence, we invite guidance and expansiveness into our lives. We can become active co-creators of our circumstances by setting conscious intents that harmoniously blend with life’s fundamental principles to manifest the greater good. The seventh direction is inward and lies at the core of all physical and non-physical reality. When recognized and acknowledged, this place of Source naturally fills us with love, Light, and laughter.

About this series: The seven sacred directions provide a means for Spirit to impregnate the material world, and we can use each of them as gateways to the unseen realms. The four cardinal directions are each associated with a particular element – East with Air, South with Fire, West with Water, and North with Earth. Since our bodies are composed of these same elements, we have the ability to physically and energetically merge with their attributes and powers. This series employs discussion, energetic practices, and ceremony to strengthen our connection to the cardinal directions, to the four elements, to Earth and Sky, and to the divine spark that dwells within each of us. We undertake this exploration with gratitude and respect for all that is, even the uncomfortable and sometimes confusing portions of our existence.

Please join us TODAY, May 9 at 2 PM PST for Jai Cross’ broadcast on HumanSpirit Radio Network. This episode in his series, The Seven Sacred Directions, will be “Honoring Mother Earth.” To listen to the show, call (646) 478-4429 at 2 PM PST today, or visit http://blogtalkradio.com/humanspiritradio.

This is the realm of Planetary Earth, the compassionate Gaia whose love for her offspring is unconditional and boundless. We connect with Mother Earth whenever we open our hearts to what is instead of believing in mental constructions, which are simply reflections and commentaries on reality. We welcome her presence when we experience the majesty of an alpine meadow, the immensity of an ocean, the magic of a coyote’s song, or the wonder of our own beating heart. By allying with Mother Earth and our ancestors, we come home, feeling the rightness and relishing the fullness of our lives.

Please join us today, Friday, March 14 at 2 PM PST for Jai Cross’ show on HumanSpirit Radio — “The Seven Sacred Directions.” Today’s show is, “Honoring West and Water.”

West governs maturation, the evening of the day and of our lives, the autumn, the time of harvest. Here we move from outward exuberance towards inner wisdom. Water represents flow, fluidity, and flexibility in the world and in our beings. It encourages us to accept and make the most of the blessings of Spirit, whatever they might be. Representing the emotional body, Water invites us to feel fully and to deepen our relationships. By allying with West and Water, we learn to move past inhibitions and to live from a place of true freedom.

Honoring East and Air

166073_459896334092234_841852898_n

East is the direction of the rising sun, the place of awakening, the promise of spring, the potential of the child. This is where we take our first steps into new beginnings, where we chart our course. Air defines our lives, from our first inhalation as a newborn to our final exhalation. Each breath of life supplies us with the raw materials of oxygen, energy, and Light. Air is associated with our mental body, and its higher expressions include mental clarity, inspiration, and insight. By allying with East and Air, we cleanse our minds and expand our beings.

Please join us this Friday, December 13 at 2 PM PST, for Jai Cross’ broadcast, “Exploring the Chakras.” In this episode, we investigate the upper two chakras – the brow and the crown that connect us with our inner knowing and cosmic consciousness. These energetic gateways lead us into subtle realms where we can perceive the true nature of our circumstances and ourselves.

The uppermost chakras become inaccessible when we are skeptical, self-doubting, and overly attached to external events. During the presentation, we will discuss and practice specific ways to open these centers of self-realization and to activate their extraordinary powers.

To listen to the show, call (646) 478-4429 at 2 PM PST on Friday, December 13. Or visit http://blogtalkradio.com/humanspiritradio

This is the mid-point and balance point of our internal energetic system, the nexus that connects our ability to feel passionate and our capacity to be visionary. Learn how to fully open your heart center to move beyond old patterns of suffering and to immerse yourself in the richness of human potential.

~ by Jai Cross

For a few moments, imagine that the worst has just happened. Perhaps that might take the form of receiving an unexpected phone call informing you that your parent had a massive stroke or that your child was in a serious car accident or that a friend is being rushed to emergency surgery.

After you have visited with those who need to be visited, after you have called those who need to be called, after you have made all the arrangements that need to be made, where would you go to replenish yourself, to reconnect with your inner core that exists apart from the circumstances and turbulence of daily life?

Many of us take great comfort in going to sacred spaces when our hopes are shaken and our prospects seem dimmed. These sanctified places range from the familiarity of a neighborhood church to the magnificence of European medieval cathedrals to the simplicity of a roadside shrine. Even agnostics and atheists often feel something akin to religious awe when standing in the grandeur of a redwood forest or humbled by the vastness of the ocean.

However, the gifts of sacred space are not confined to religious sites or locations of great natural beauty. Many of the sentiments that these “public” places awaken in us can be evoked within the privacy of your home at an altar or other hallowed area.

It is important to create and maintain a sense of separateness or otherworldliness to this special area, to preserve a sense of sanctity amid life’s daily routines. This is true even if your holy place has multiple uses, such as a dining room table that is converted into a place of worship and spiritual practice when devotional objects are reverentially arranged upon it.

Most people have sufficient space in their dwellings to exclusively devote a corner, a nook, or an area along a wall to a home shrine. This physical location will link ordinary reality to the spiritual dimension, and it should be respected accordingly. Similarly the objects placed on an altar possess great power as connections to divinity, which will serve you in direct proportion to the strength of your intent.

Many of us learned to pray in Sunday school, a synagogue, a mosque, a temple, or some other place of formalized instruction. In many cases, a home altar may grant unique opportunities to deepen one’s personal connection to spirit and to one’s inner wisdom.

The word “altar” derives from a Latin word meaning “to burn,” a reference to the ancient practice of burning animal sacrifices on a raised platform. Nowadays, the traditional burnt offerings have been replaced with incense and candles, but we retain altars as places to offer thanks, to make supplications, and to commune with the divine.

Harness a focused intent to honor the spiritual realm whenever creating a home altar or shrine. Feel into the sacred space that is taking form and that will be fed by your spiritual practice. Make decisions regarding this hallowed place from an open heart rather than an analytical mind.

Devotional objects for the altar should represent aspects that you respect, possibly including candles, flowers, statues or carvings of saints or other holy figures, photographs of loved ones, animal figurines, sea shells, rattles, bells, stones, feathers, prayer beads, smudge sticks, prayer cloths, or crystals.

A home shrine can serve as a focal point for formal or spontaneous prayers, meditation, yoga and other fitness practices, chanting, visualization, trance induction, breathing exercises, shamanic journeying, recapitulation work, chakra cleansing, and many other spiritual endeavors. It also can be a private sanctuary, a place of refuge and stillness that nourishes the soul.

When at the altar, allow yourself to sink deeply into whatever practice or prayer you are performing. Bring your true self forward, allowing your inner light to shine brightly. Even if you are despairing or downhearted, you can bring that pain and confusion forward to offer up the truth of your being rather than a shallow “I’m all right” cover-up. This type of honest revealing eventually leads to self-acceptance, self-love, and self-empowerment.

To keep the energy fresh and moving, it is healthy to periodically rearrange or exchange devotional objects. You may find that your altar becomes the spiritual heart of your dwelling, and several altars may unexpectedly spring up in different parts of the house to serve different needs. Spirit loves playmates, and it will open to you as you open to it.
