Let Go - It Isn't Yours To Carry

Let It Go - It Isn't Yours To Carry

Conversations with My Self

Each morning I have this routine as I awake.  I check in with my body, my mind and my soul and ask if there is any disconnect, disharmony or imbalance and offer Reiki and love to those places.  Next I ask for guidance and wisdom to restore well being to any parts of my self needing it. Often the response is an restorative affirmation or affirming thought.

This morning the affirmation that came to me was "Let go of what is no longer yours to carry" and in, what is for me, typical fashion the next thought was "and since nothing, absolutely nothing, is yours to carry that means let it all go...it isn't yours to carry, never was." WOW! Talk about straight to the heart of it.

As I let these thoughts sink in and realized the truth of them an epiphany hit me. Being created in love/light, by love/light, for love/light, the only things I should be carrying with me are those which resonate with love/light. Anything else is in conflict with my true nature. Double WOW!

Having this research loving mind of mine I was utterly fascinated by what I observed happening throughout my physical body and mental body as these thoughts settled through me. Both my physical and mental bodies felt as though they were shedding pounds and pounds. I began breathing easier and deeper. Muscle knots that I hadn't noticed were loosening and going away. I observed that not only was my physical and mental bodies being affected but suddenly my emotional body felt empowered with infinite possibilities as though I could do anything...kinda super hero like :)

We are amazing creatures but were were not designed to carry around stuff that is not in harmony with our true nature. So, let it go. See what happens for you when you do...and let me know.

Sending you love and light

P.S. Here's a song that popped into my consciousness while I was writing this. This song found me years ago when I really needed it. I hope it inspires you too.

The Secret Superpower of Slowing Down


The Secret Superpower of Slowing Down

Recently I decided it was time to start washing dishes by hand again. Let me explain. As a mother of three there were many years where alone/quiet time was a challenge and escape from stress nearly impossible. One day I discovered washing dishes by hand was the answer. No one wanted to help so everyone completely avoided the kitchen when I announced, “I’m going to go wash dishes.” 

It was my quiet time, my time to let everything go, my time to breathe, my sanctuary. Recently we had more dishes then dishwasher space and the stress of running two businesses, the last son graduating high school, and life in general was wearing on me. I recalled how peaceful dishwashing time was in years past and decided it was time to resurrect it.

Now, I know that sounds crazy to many of you. How can I have time to wash dishes by hand with so much going on. The truth is, there is a Secret Superpower when you Slow Down and when life is busiest is when you need it the most. The Secret Superpower is Peace! When you slow down and let things go it has the same effect as meditation. Your mind becomes clearer (less cluttered), you blood pressure goes down, you breath and relax allowing more oxygen into the blood stream (making everything work better) resulting in Peace.

When you do return to “life” you have a peace and calmness to handle each moment life offers. Something which tends to go MIA when you are stressed. As I always teach, meditation takes many forms. Whatever you do that allows you to let go, breathe and restore a peaceful mind is a great meditation. While I practice and guide traditional meditations, I am also a firm believer in The Secret Superpower of Slowing Down.

Balancing & Healing the Heart Chakra


The Heart Chakra

‘To Accept’

by Regina Ann


According to Wikipedia, Chakra derives from the Sanskrit word for “wheel” or “turning.” The chakras are considered to be a number of wheel-like vortices that exist within the subtle body being the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies.  It is generally accepted that there are seven main chakras in the body system which include the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown.

Many traditions, therapies and disciplines have found connections between the health of each chakra and the health of specific areas of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. When life energy is allowed to flow through the energy points, chakras, with ease and in balance, the body systems respond in balance and harmony. Through life experiences and daily life we may develop blockages that become trapped in one or more chakra resulting in imbalance and disharmony. Those of us who work in the fields of healing commonly see the physical, mental and emotional results of these blockages. 

According to Chinese Traditional Medicine, Summer is the season of the Heart so enjoy this information on the Heart Chakra and have a lovely Summer!

The Heart Chakra ~ The Heart Chakra center is located in the center of the chest between the two breasts.  According to Wikipedia the Heart Chakra is related to the thymus, located in the chest. The thymus is an element of the immune system and part of the endocrine system.  It is responsible for fending off disease and may be adversely affected by stress.  

A balanced and healthy Heart chakra results physically in proper circulation. Emotionally it results in balanced emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love for self and others. Mentally it results in balanced passion and spiritually results in devotion. 

When this chakra is blocked, out of balance or holding negativity it may result in heart related physical issues; lack of love, compassion or tenderness; and lack of devotion or passion.

The most common symptoms I see in my practice related to the Heart Chakra include: chest pain and or back pain in the area of the chest; pain in the shoulders; problems breathing; “guarding” the heart so as to not be hurt; holding little or no hope in love or life. In every case I find a connection between the heart blockage or negativity and a past event that is also creating imbalance in another chakra…the most common being the solar plexus.

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of healing the Heart Chakra is believing that it is safe to open the heart to allow healing. It goes against our survival instinct to allow a damaged area to open up and be vulnerable, yet that is exactly what must happen if you wish to heal.  Healing begins with being open and vulnerable to love.  

For me, success came when I learned what love truly is. We have all learned different meanings of love based on our experiences. Understanding what love truly is allows expectations to be released and love to be experienced for what it is…love.  The best definition for love that I have found is within the word Metta or Maitri on Wikipedia. At its core Metta or Maitri is love for the sake of love alone, love without clinging or expectation of outcome.

Balancing & Healing The Heart Chakra

Element: Air

Crystals for healing the Heart Chakra include Malachite and Rose Quartz.

Essential oils recommended for the Heart Chakra include rose, geranium, melissa, rosewood, angelica, jasmine, and frankincense. *Lavendar is beneficial for all chakras

Meditation: Daily balancing meditation for the Heart Chakra focusing on the vibrational sound YAM is extremely beneficial as are positive affirmations.

Imperative to healing the Heart Chakra is learning to love yourself. I regularly recommend that clients write love letters to themselves to help with this. Positive Affirmations are very healing. Helping others is a healing balm for the heart.   Forgiveness is perhaps one of the most important components of healing the heart. Most of us have wounds that only forgiveness can heal. It is important to see that forgiveness is for our healing…it has nothing to do with the other person or what they did…forgiveness is something we do for us, for our healing, so we can be free!
