Fear is a never a fun part of life. It can create doubt, and tension in all areas, especially your heart chakra. This can create a sensation of being unable to breath or even a block in communication between you and the important people in your life. Below is a simple exercise designed to help you begin breathing easier, softer, better, lighter and step off of the path of fear and back on to the road of love and light which is where we all come from and where we belong. 🙂
You can try this now if you like. Take some space, get a drink of water and relax. Go to a quiet room in your house without clutter or stay just where you are if you feel comfortable. Take a deep breath and let the wave of thoughts wash over you as usual. This time, as they come, please take each thought and hand them over to the universe like paper in the wind… and breath! Let each thought now belong to the universe. They can still be in your periphery, they may never go away and that’s okay! Just give them to the universe to take care of for now! It really works! By handing over the daily list of chores, deadlines and worries, it grants us the opportunity to step back and really gain some clarity on the people, places and things of our day to day.
Please know that true clarity is not necessarily complete nothingness, it can also simply mean getting distance from the craziness so that you can discover a new perspective.
Keep handing everything over and focus only on your breath. When you feel connected to your breathing, move your mind slowly down from your head into your chest area. To help you visualize, imagine a big green heart in your chest area. Place a beautiful set of French Doors on them. Throw open those doors and step inside your Heart. You will know you are in your heart when you feel nothing but LOVE. This is a place of healing and warmth. This is your heart and it is wiser than your head can ever hope to be. It is here that we can escape the stress of the world and feel safe. There is no fear in your heart. There is no room for it here. Only LOVE. You can come here whenever you feel lost or scared and it will Always be filled with Love and understanding. If you ever need an answer about anything and your head is giving you well.. a headache 😉 you can come to the Heart for the answer. This will always be the true answer. it may not be one that you particularly like but it is closer to the truth because the answer comes from Love, not will.
Try this once a day until you become comfortable with it. Then when you are ready… try going to your heart when you are talking to another person. See how it feels to see another with your Heart not your Eyes, to hear them with your Spirit and not your Ears. This is not an easy thing, it takes practice and requires self love and conviction but I promise you that you will spend less time living in fear and will probably learn right quick who you should or shouldn’t be spending time with. 😉
Doing exercises like this requires that we spend some time looking within and this is not an easy thing. It is important that we not beat ourselves up if we are having trouble. Spend some time this week looking within, and finding the knots or blocks that are preventing you from allowing an open and honest flow between your Conscious and Unconscious minds. My brave students have taught me that sometimes these blocks are big are created for a reason, however, in order to do any kind of psychic work, healing or on ourselves or others, we need to be able to feel safe in the great sea that is our subconscious mind. Any doubts, blocks, or phobias, can compromise this work and make this space unsafe, so if you are having trouble connecting the two, if you are feeling a particularly large blockage, some grounded Psychological work or Clinical Therapy in tandem with meditation can be instrumental in helping you to connect to your subconscious more safely.
Remember that we have a physical body, a conciseness and spiritual bodies. Each of them are meant to be working together to optimize your human life experience. Meditation and Clinical Psychological Therapy can be considered a physical world bridge between the Conscious and unconscious and I highly recommend a period of study of both at some point in your lives to… well…anyone 🙂 Every day we all live doing the absolute best that we know how to. The more time we spend understanding who we are and why we are here the easier it will be for us to maneuver through it. Spend some time today looking within and seeing that amazing and beautiful being that you are. Take a breezy walk through your open heart and feel the love that you are capable of. Spend a little time here each day until coming here is a no brainer. Eventually you will spend enough time in your heart that your world will change. You will make that connection between Physical and Spirit, Conscious and Subconscious and step into the Loving Being that you actually are. And believe me, others will follow. 🙂
