“Obstacles do not appear in your way in order to stop you. Rather, they appear in order to strengthen and hone you and your plans. They are not your enemy. They are your secret ally, but only if you treat them as friendly forces of nature.”
Anodea Judith


“The Presence of the demon keeps the chakra from doing its job, but that challenge also forces us to bring more awareness to that job, so eventually we can do it better.”
Anodea Judith


“Devotion is a spiritual act of egoless surrender. When the Self blinds the spirit too tightly, then devotion expands the blinding by lifting us beyond ourselves. We get the powerful lesson that the Self survives even without constant attention.”
Anodea Judith


“Instead, will is the realization that we can regard each challenge as an opportunity to awaken to our highest potential. This does not deny what has come before, but incorporates it, using it as a springboard for the future. While we can’t always control what happens to us, we can control what we do about it.”
Anodea Judith


“Grounding is not dull and lifeless, but dynamic and vibrant. Generally it is our tension that makes us lethargic, and tension results from alienation between various parts of ourselves. As these parts are simplified and integrated, we experience increased vitality.”
Anodea Judith


“Our culture, so proud of its mind-over-matter philosophy, cuts us off from our bodily experience and from the earth itself. In this severance, our sexuality is negated, our senses assaulted, our environment abused, and our power manipulated. Our ground is our form, and without it we lose our individuality.”
Anodea Judith


“the lotus reminds you to remain centered in pure awareness, connected to your central channel or core, even as chaos and complexity unfold around you. Staying centered helps you keep connected with Source in the most direct way, without getting pulled off track by all the events blossoming around you.”
Anodea Judith


“Issues of power, control, energy fuels, and political strength have become key themes in our current events. We have come a long way from iron spearheads to nuclear warheads, yet the disease of power used for control and domination has remained.”
Anodea Judith


“For many people, work itself is a grounding activity. Aside from providing our basic tool of survival—money—the routine of working a job according to a regular schedule can provide a basic structure that supports the life around it. This routine, while it may be drudgery at times, can actually be beneficial in its limitations. It builds a foundation. Through focus and repetition, energies become dense enough to manifest. If we are involved with constant change, we are like a rolling stone that gathers no moss. We’re kept at a survival level because we are constantly building new foundations. Only through focus and repetition can we achieve expertise in an area leading to larger manifestation of goals, be they physical or ideological.”
Anodea Judith


“Give up being safe and your power chakra will awaken more quickly.”
Anodea Judith


“Pleasure and sensation are essential features of the second chakra. If desire is the seed of movement, then pleasure is the root of desire, and sensation is the medium of pleasure. Pleasure is essential for the health of the body, the rejuvenation of spirit, and the healing of our personal and cultural relationships. Unfortunately, we are taught to beware of pleasure, that it’s a dangerous temptress waiting to lure us away from our true path. We are taught to repress our need for pleasure, and in so doing, repress our natural bodily impulses, and once again, segregate mind and body. We don’t easily allow ourselves enjoyment of even the simple pleasures—time for a little extra sleep, a leisurely walk, or comfortable clothing. These stringent measures arise from the mind, but seldom from the body. We then may experience a backlash in our emotions.”
Anodea Judith


“When we withdraw from life, we become a closed system. Our expression turns in on itself, often in anger and self-criticism, which wears us down further. Fire takes fuel to burn, and in a closed system, the fuel eventually burns up. Only in a dynamic state of interaction with the world can we keep up the movement and contact that feeds our fire and zest for life.”
Anodea Judith


“Without grounding, we are unstable; we lose our center, fly off the handle, get swept off our feet, or daydream in a fantasy world.”
Anodea Judith


“Sometimes we get locked into a program and it becomes our habitual way of interacting with the world around us. The man who sees every situation as a challenge to his power orients from his third chakra.”
Anodea Judith


“Maya is a projection of consciousness, but not consciousness itself.”
Anodea Judith


“The shadow side of this exposure is that, at least in the West, any cultural meme that gets seized by the collective consciousness runs the risk of trivialization, thus diluting its power.”
Anodea Judith


“The chakras are the psychic generators of the auric field. The aura itself is the meeting point between the core patterns generated by the chakras and the influence of the external world.”
Anodea Judith


“Awareness of the other should be balanced by awareness of the self.”
Anodea Judith


“the essence of a communication is often distorted in translation.”
Anodea Judith


The human drama is reaching its denouement. The great unveiling is approaching, a time when the power structures of the world begin to crumble and people of the heart sing out a new truth. Many voices are joining the chorus, many feet are walking the path, many minds are dreaming possibilities for a magnificent future. For beneath the crises that are looming at every level of civilization, the global heart is awakening, beating out the rhythm of a new and glorious dance, calling us to a better way of living.
Anodea Judith


It's not the meaning of life we seek but our aliveness. Once we have that, the meaning of life is obvious.
Anodea Judith


Love is not a matter of getting connected. It is a matter of seeing that we already ARE connected within an intricate web of relationships that extends throughout all life. It is a realization of 'no boundary' -- that we are all made of the same stuff, riding through time on the same spaceship, faced with the same problems in the world, the same hopes and fears. It is a connection at the core, that makes irrelevant skin color, age, sex, looks or money.
Anodea Judith


Chakras are organizational centers for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life-force energy. They are the stepping stones between heaven and earth.
Anodea Judith


We are moving from a chain of command to a web of connection, from competition to collaboration, from
markets to networks and stockholders to stakeholders, and greed to green.
Anodea Judith


It is only by embracing the full spectrum of human consciousness that we can bring about a true awakening of the heart
Anodea Judith


The body is the vehicle, consciousness the driver. Yoga is the path, and the chakras are the map.
Anodea Judith


The universe exists only through a constant dance of consistency and change. Through consistency, consciousness finds meaning; through change it finds stimulation and expansion. To find consistency within change is to embrace the unfolding flow.
Anodea Judith


We take for granted that we need to take showers, clean our house, and wash our clothes. Yet the mind and its thoughts need cleansing and ordering as much as our bodies. While few of us would consider eating dinner on yesterday's dirty dishes, we think nothing of tackling our problems with yesterdays cluttered minds.... The purpose to any meditation technique is to move beyond the normal contents of our consciousness, empty your mind of its habitual chatter, and concentrate your attention for the purpose of experiencing a higher state
Anodea Judith


To lose our connection with the body is to become spiritually homeless. Without an anchor we float aimlessly, battered by the winds and waves of life
Anodea Judith


To love ourselves is to act respectfully toward ourselves, to enjoy our own company when in solitude, to honor our limits and speak our truths.
Anodea Judith


The cultural transformation from the love of power to the power of love is the drama of our time.
Anodea Judith


As you transform yourself, you transform the world.
Anodea Judith


We either get success or lessons. If we learn our lessons successfully, we get both.
Anodea Judith


Scared is what happens when the sacred gets scrambled.
Anodea Judith


Peace is not merely the absence of warfare, any more than true health is simply the absence of disease. Nor is peace simply a quiet state of equilibrium-impossible to achieve in an evolving system. Though refraining from harm is an essential first step, lasting peace is created by actively redressing harm done. Peace is a creative process of actively joining I and thou into a co-creative we. It requires authentic communication, empathic listening, and wildly creative solutions.
Anodea Judith


We've created the almost godly power of being able to alter the climate, to change the face of the earth, now we need to develop the consciousness of gods, and wield that power wisely
Anodea Judith


Love is a state of being in harmony with oneself.
Anodea Judith


We are the higher synthesis of the union of the archetypal Mother and Father. As we recognize the divinity within ourselves, we see it in each other and all around us. Through this realization, the world becomes sacred again, infused with intelligence, spirit, and a grand plan for evolutionary awakening.
Anodea Judith


Liberation is the path of transcendence. Manifestation is the path of immanence. Both lead to the same place: the divine.
Anodea Judith


Like a garden that is carefully tended, the rewards are well worth the effort.
Anodea Judith


It’s not only for unanswered questions that we seek knowledge but also for the examination of unquestioned answers.
Anodea Judith


For it is indeed consciousness that makes the body fully alive, and the body that gives consciousness a place to live.
Anodea Judith


We cannot enter the realm of the heart where one gender, representing half of the human race, is subordinated, suppressed, or forgotten. In fact, such a system negatively affects both men and women, holding us all back from true integration, collaboration, and union.
Anodea Judith


The material world may be nothing but illusion...
Anodea Judith


Ascetic spirituality is a symptom of the very disease which it intends to cure.
Anodea Judith


Mind severed from body, culture from planet- to lose our ground is to lose our home.
Anodea Judith


World peace is the most essential outer realization of our time.
Anodea Judith


Physically, the heart is an organ that keeps us alive through a coordinated network of cells beating together. Spiritually, the heart is the center of love, the force that makes our lives worthwhile. Globally, the heart is a symbol of a new organizing principle for how to live together on this finite jewel of a planet.
Anodea Judith


Human consciousness is now being drawn inexorably toward the same issues, the gaze of collective attention focused like never before.
Anodea Judith


As civilization grows more complex, it is simultaneously becoming increasingly interrelated. We are converging upon ourselves, and this is forcing us to relate.
Anodea Judith
