Repressed emotion

When we distract ourselves from situations so we don’t have to think about them; emotions swell just beneath. These emotions are allowed to run wild and cause us to strongly react to those we love.

All pain eventually leads to anger because we get tired of feeling the pain and we get mad at ourselves for feeling it- it becomes shame for not being able to stop it. This repressed anger then spills over into our lives leaving us confused as to why we just over reacted, yelled, exploded.

It is important to connect with the emotion before it turns to anger; or to understand that the anger is masking something deeper. Once we can isolate the emotion, it’s secrets as to why it is yelling becomes clear.

Repressed emotions, unaccounted for, create physical manifestations; first in the form of stress in our face and neck… then leading to stomach issues as it gets pushed down deeper. Prolonged forced ignorance of these emotional factors can lead to illness, depression and fatigue.

the coming of the winter solstice

Friday, 12/21 is the Winter Solstice in the Northern hemisphere and marks the longest night of the year. After Friday, the sun is reborn as he grows into the coming Spring and Summer.

During this time, we are asked to let go of what no longer serves us. This can mean thought patterns, people, jobs, emotions… We too, are in a sense, reborn at this interface of light and dark. Over the past several months, and for some off us the past several years, we have been doing the shadow work required to fully lift our vibrations from the “old” into the new that is coming for us. Storms don’t come into our life to destroy, but rather to clear the way for something completely different and more in line with our true purpose.

Consider rituals on this year’s winter solstice to cement the changes you have experienced of late. Write down on a piece of paper all the things you are leaving behind you; all those things that no longer serve your highest and best good. Write with with love in your heart and then throw them into a fire with a prayer of thanks and gratitude- for the lessons learned in letting go of these things have helped you advance to your present.

After you are done releasing, write again those things which you wish to see manifest in the coming year. Meditate on these desires with an open heart and with gratitude. Give thanks for these blessings which have not coming into into your life yet, and throw them into the fire with a prayer to your higher power.

This is a time for change. Energy portals have been open since 12/12; helping us release, raising our vibrations, sending messages of attunement for the coming year. Release into your highest self, let go of what no longer serves you and find peace knowing that your road is paved with universal intent.

– Blessings

Longest day approaches
And the pregnant sky prepares
For the birth of another sun-
Holy is the coming of light!
And the moon, full in her power,
Comforts the pain of new beginnings;
What is to come now that the darkness
Is pushed aside once again?
And what lingers in the shadows yet?
All is love as we find the new awakening
Of a new year
Heart and mind as one-
Between the inhale and the exhale;
The death and birth of change;
We grow inside this interface
And sing the ancient songs of praise.

welcoming october

Today begins October and the slow march from the heat of summer to winter’s snow. This is a time for gathering resources, aligning the heart with the head, and giving thanks for all the lessons, both good and bad, that we learned over the past year.

There can be no change without growth and growth sometimes requires pain. Pain is that all encompassing elixir that burns away those things that are no longer working; making room instead for the “new” that will provide alternative ways of looking at life and reality.

Many years have found me hiding from the ceremony of pain because I was afraid of feeling it. I would pretend it wasn’t there- turning my head from it’s echoes in hopes that I could remain safe within the prison I built to protect myself. Only this year have I really been able to let go and release myself from the self-imposed blockages that kept me from truly seeing the truth of my life, who I am, and who I am meant to be.

Life’s journey is meant to contain all colors and shades… from light to dark, from up to down, from above to below. Today I give thanks for my bravery in facing the shadows that linger within me; and I give you strength to face yours in the same spirit.

love and light- October blessings to you all.

Reiki & animals

I find that animals benefit from energy healing as much as humans do. My oldest dog, Jack, is about 10 years old now. Being a larger breed dog, Great Pyrenees, he suffers more than smaller dogs with joint pain.

I use Reiki therapy on him as we lay down to watch tv at night, or even while I am relaxing on the sofa. Gentle touch can help alleviate pain, but can also help with stress and anxiety that lingers from being alone during the day or other stressors animals can undergo while their humans are away.

Removing energetic attachments from an animal can also help brighten their spirit and lift their mood. Sometimes animals will develop these attachments from other dogs or people who pet them. Energy leaves traces, so if a human is dealing with unpleasant thoughts/feelings they can transpose that energy onto their animal. Reiki can help “cut” those unintentional energetic ties that have developed and clear the aura of the animal.
