The solar plexus is the house of our inner identity, confidence and our inner warrior. How often have you been told to pipe down, quiet, take up less space, stay in your lane? Maybe it's time to let the lion/ness out! Our Chakra Dance Saturday was empowering as we used our dance as a meditation to empower the masculine energy that is willing to fight for our lives, our passions, our place.
Chakra dance is a way to energetically remove blockages- to shake off the negativity and limits we've placed on ourselves and to move into alignment. A diminished and dimmed solar plexus can look like bouts of low energy, depression, insecurity. An overactive solar plexus can look like agitation, anger, obsessive behavior and control. Balanced, we are confident, empowered and enhanced by a strong inner fire, driving us toward our purpose and our passion, confident in our value.
Oils that support the Solar Plexus are mandarin, peppermint, sandalwood, spearmint, vetiver, ylang ylang, geranium, ginger, jupier cypress, cedar wood, petigrain and black pepper.
This month qualifying orders placed between the 1st and 15th will get a free Citrus Twist Oil... it has wild orange (sweet, alluring) layered with ginger and lemongrass for a refreshing twist.

We are all a little afraid sometimes. Sometimes we are a lot. The more we step into our truths, the more we have to bring our courage. The more we make choices about what to keep and what to let go of, the more we have to steel ourselves in our own conscious decision making. The more we strengthen our resolve, the more we have to breathe and speak kindly to ourselves.
This morning, we were given some breathwork practices from Fernando Ortega, an Instagram friend from Hawaii @breathe.minded. He's a conscious breather, training himself to use the breath as an anchor and to deepen his sense of living. It wasn't always comfortable, but it was very interesting to explore variations to the breath and the sensations it brings to the body- some calming, some invigorating.
Yoga, meditation, mindfulness, running and life require us to focus on our breath. As said in his session, it is the one essential life function we can control. If you're holding tension in your neck and find your stomach uneasy, you might have found yourself, inadvertently, to be holding your breath. We remind ourselves to expand, lengthen, inhale the good, that which we are grateful for and exhale the rest.
Exhale negativity, fear, worries, stress. As you walk throughout your day or you sit in your chair, can you become aware of the air as it enters your nasal passages, travels through your lungs and sends life giving oxygen into your body? Now more than ever, we can be grateful that we are the lucky ones who can inhale and exhale with ease. Think about it. Others with COVID or other illnesses are not so fortunate.
Let your breath become an anchor for becoming aware of your emotional state, your inner stress, your inner peace. Let it be the cue to be easier, more compassionate, or to take a pause. Let each breath be an opportunity to train your inner voice to be that of a friend.
All is well in our world.
Tomorrow, we have gratitude practice. I hope to see you at 7am EST. If you aren't on our email list and want the recaps, please click on the register button at the top of the page and we will send them along!

When we were young, we moved freely as it felt good and right. At some point, we were told what looked good, was good, how much space to take up, how small to get, how quietly to move and how politely to position ourselves. We were taught to choreograph and synchronize and measure up, scaled down, cover up, undress, airbrush and hide. Depending on all of the expectations of others, we began to shy away from our true nature and feel more concerned about what the circumstances of the outside world deemed appropriate for the moment.
Chakra dance is a way to put down our armor for a short time and to return to a more free, lighter, energized self. Through different meditations, visualization of movements that are natural to you and song, we move in a way that is organic and freeing. The sacral chakra is located about an inch below the belly button. I rolled jasmine and neroli around that space and into my belly button. I spritzed my body with a blend of oils to enhance my energy. Witch hazel, fractionated coconut oil, rosewater, patchouli, wild orange and ylang ylang.
Carnelian is the gem of choice and the color orange resonates with the sacral chakra. In balance, we are creative, free and joyful- playful and experience pleasure in our world. Out of balance, we can become addicted to "sweetness" like sugar, pleasurable sensations or chemicals. Inhibited, we become stagnant, closed off and feel a nagging sense of monotony- the duldroms of life. The. Sacral chakra is connected with our feminine energy, our sexuality and our emotional wellness. Supporting it invigorates us with a joy that is free from the rigid, dramatic experiences of misalignment.
At the start of the dance, I am nervous. By the end, I can't stop smiling. This is simply coming home to our bodies, believing that there is nothing wrong with the way we move or feel. We are meant to be like that child who plays in the ocean waves and dances joyfully with total confidence and pleasure.
Oils to support your sacral chakra are above!
Upcoming Smiles at Sunrise Sessions:
Yoga with Bethany Sunday
Oily Tarot with LeeAnn Monday
Designing your morning leads to the idea of designing your life. We are powerful co-creators. Our world grows as we push away our limits, nurture our truths, and begin to incorporate the daily practices that set a new vision for ourselves. Our vision is made real only when we affirm our own value and take action. A morning spent with intention allows the possibility for us to focus and prioritize the healing we need, the creation we are meant to make, the energy and presence we want to bring to our path and our world.
Smiles at Sunrise has been a powerful experience for me, as an organizer, light seeker, and up-lifter. Each experience deepens my understanding of my inner world and each presenter has had such talents, such amazing gifts to share. Seeing the faces of others on the path with one another brings a certain comfort and new vibration. We are all exploring our purpose and our best self together.
If you missed this morning's session, Kathy MGrath led us in light healing. She helped us understand the chakra systems, open and cleanse them, then she closed them and protected us with healing light. The impact on the individuals in the group was palpable and I am so grateful for this invaluable experience.

We spent the morning with my dear friend, Brittany, who happens to be a fitness expert, wellness advocate and an amazing guide for meditation.
She shared with us the healing properties of three essential oils:
lavender- healing of blocked communication, fear of rejections, tense, racing thoughts, emotional dishonesty, hiding fear, feeling unseen, unheard, or unloved, insecurity
frankincense- healing feelings of abandonment, spiritual disconnection, and relationships with your father
Balance- grounding and healing feelings of escape, flightiness, avoidance of long term commitments
Britt led us through a divine meditation that will leave anyone feeling calm, loving and peaceful. Check out the podcast episode with the bonus answer to why Britt began to incorporate oils and meditation into her fitness training and life.

Goodmorning, morning glories!
There is a thick blanket of snow outside my window, the kind that coats every branch and bough, making the world pure, magical, and... welp, cold.
We warmed up our bodies and our root chakra this morning with some free movement and dance intended to ground us in the natural world, to help us accept our bodies and our nature with confidence. Chakra dance requires bravery because there is no choreographer, it is all connection with your own rhythm. We used a meditation to further our connection with earth, her heartbeat and to remember how we are one with the planet and energies past, present and future. This is a moving meditation of sorts.
Learning each week, our accepting group has celebrated every moment- whether or not there are bumps in the road. I want to recognize the friends who were with me this morning and bravely willing to be videoed for your benefit. The music was not steady for them (I will use my internal microphone next wee), but they danced anyway. My heart is full thinking about that. I am not going to share the dance sessions on social as it is an intimate gathering of our tribe, so I share them with you, in confidence.
You'll need to be a part of my email list to watch the recap with bare feet that are ready to move. I'll admit that toward the end, the floor was mighty cold and I put my slippers on. If you have essential oils, cypress or patchouli at the base of the spine is great for connecting and nurturing the root chakra. I'd love to hear if you tried this and how it impacted you, if you did!
Tomorrow, we have my beautiful and dear friend, Brittany Leal sharing a meditation to start our day. She has such a silky voice to listen to and her meditation will fill you with self compassion and a vibration of safety and love. You won't want to miss her!
Monday: Light Healing with Kathy Leave space for about 30 minutes for this session. Be comfortable with cushions and clothing you can relax in. Bring a bowl of room temperature water large enough to fit your hand in.
Tuesday: 7AM Movement with Owen
Tuesday 7PM: A free essential oil class to teach you about how and why DoTerra oils are safe, effective and cheaper than modern medicine.
As always, let me know if you need anything at all and feel free to invite to our little group. If you haven't attended yet, it is never too late!
Have a beautiful day!
Affirmations are positive statements about yourself or a situation that empower your subconscious mind and offer support for taking action in alignment with your values, beliefs and higher purpose. I first started using them years ago when I was very sick and wanted to heal my body. Louise Haye wrote a beautiful book with the title, "You Can Heal Your Life". As I walked, I'd often think, "My body is a powerful healing machine" or, "All is well in my world". The negative thoughts from my subconscious would still come up from air after swimming in that deep ocean inside my soul. I'd tell them, "out" and replace the negative statement with a new, more positive one.
This morning's session was lead by Kathy MGraff, a light healer with 20+ years in education and healing. She taught us 5 simple steps for writing our own affirmation statements.
It was very cool to see the level of engagement in our group, to hear one another's affirmations and to consider the way we can change the subconscious if we actively work on our inner thoughts now. I am so grateful that we had this session with Kathy and I very much look forward to our next session where we get to experience light healing with her on April 20th! You won't want to miss that!
Tonight at 7pm current DoTerra customers who have enrolled with me or my team will be able to participate in a free zoom to learn how to get the most from your enrollment kits and oils!
Tomorrow! We will be burning up the cardio with the amazing and whole-hearted Owen Headley!
Tomorrow morning, we will be showing ourselves a little bit of gratitude by making personal affirmations! At 7 am, we will bring our pencils and journals and write simple, empowering messages to power toward our goals and purpose.
Then, if you are someone who recently enrolled or are a Doterrra customer, you can come to our 7pm workshop- all about making the most of your enrollment kit and oils! Click on the image above to send me an email and let me know which you want to sign up for!

Author, LeeAnn Sinclair
A teacher of 19 years, a writer, a wellness advocate, fitness lover and intuitive mother to two boys, I believe that self love is the first step in helping lifting others. Our loved ones develop inner nurturing, we learn to show up in authentic ways in the world, and we discover our own potential when we take time to nurture ourselves. Our stories are our own, our voices are needed in this world, and we can change the world by lifting the vibration of our collective communities. It all starts inside our own hearts.
