the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
In the balancing act of life, it’s important to maintain your own happiness, to find serenity in the midst of the negativity that often swirls around you.
Seems like it should be fairly easy: listen your heart, be kind to others, and happiness should follow. Simple, right? But no one is an island, and we’re so very impacted by others’ currents. No matter how “up” you tend to be, when someone around you (especially someone you care about) is down, your energetic barometer sinks, too.
What can you do about this? I find that meditation helps. If my happiness takes a hit, I find a place to sit quietly and release the negativity that has entered my field. I focus on my heart, on the loving energy there, and feel its warmth blossom until it fills my energy body. It only takes a few minutes, but never fails to lift me up.
To take it further, you can try EFT tapping to release the negativity from your field. This modality involves gently tapping on meridian endpoints. For more information, see The Tapping Solution. I’ve had wonderful results using this technique.
To take it even further, you can try cutting cords to the person (or group) who brings you down. This doesn’t mean you sever all contact with them; it simply disrupts the flow of unhealthy energy between you. I have a cord cutting process that has helped me a lot; you can find it here.
Remind yourself that, although you care about someone, their negativity is theirs; it’s not up to you to fix them (or their life). Attempting to do so will only frustrate you, as well as interfering with whatever life lesson they are working through. It’s okay to be there for them, if you so choose, but don’t allow their negative energy to weigh you down. Releasing that which doesn’t belong to you can bring a feeling of buoyancy to your field, allowing you to float on a wave of serenity.
Calluna Wellness is a year old! To celebrate, please enjoy my Manifestation Meditation. This process will help you tap in to your innate manifestation abilities. You can find it here or on iTunes.
I believe that there are three keys to manifestation. The first is that your intention is pure. Let your manifesting flow from a place of unconditional love, supporting the highest good of all involved. The second key is that you infuse your goals and desires with the highest emotions, such as love and joy. They should never flow from such things as greed or jealousy. And finally, release your expectations of how your goals will come to pass. If you focus too strictly on your desires manifesting along a certain path, you may block off the flow of manifestation from an unexpected direction.
Thank you for coming along on this journey with me!
I’ve been getting so many signs of rebirth, renewal, releasing the old to make way for the new. While working in my garden (and taking the above picture), I actually stepped on a snakeskin. If that isn’t the Universe smacking me over the head with a sign of rebirth, I don’t know what is!
One thing that’s helped me with the process of releasing the old: Past Life Regression. By recognizing patterns across past (and parallel) lives, I’ve been able to start letting go of some of my outdated thought/behavior/belief patterns. With the summer solstice soon upon us, this is a wonderful time to explore and release the patterns which no longer support your journey. So I’ve decided to re-share my Past Life Exploration meditation:
You can also find this meditation on iTunes. Have a wonderful summer solstice!
Make yourself comfortable, releasing any tension from your forehead, neck, shoulders, stomach. Take a few deep breaths. If a thought rises up, just let it float away.
Focus on your breath… In… Out…
Can you feel it? Can you feel the old timelines melting away? None of what we’ve been through in the past (or past lives) matters anymore. It happened, we learned from it, and it is melting away. Let it go.
Can you see/feel/sense the columns of light rising up from the melting timelines? One represents Freedom (from expectations and programming). Another is Joy (follow its guidance – do what makes your heart soar). Another is Love (unconditional, of self and others and nature and all that is).
My new meditation will help you get your energy ready for summer!
This quick energy cleanse will help you release negative energy from your field – along with anything else that doesn’t belong there. You can find it here or on iTunes.
For kids, parents, caregivers, teachers, administrators, and support staff, this process preps your field for a fun, relaxing summer by releasing that which has clung to you during the school year.
For everyone, this meditation can be done whenever you feel bogged down by negative energies or emotions. Once you get comfortable with the process, you can really use it anywhere, any time you need a quick boost!
Do you ever come across someone whose energy just feels icky? You find them off-putting and just don’t want to be around them? You can’t put your finger on why they create this reaction in you, but you feel it nevertheless? I’ve come to realize the reason behind this phenomenon is quite simple: their outside doesn’t match up with their inside. To put it more metaphysically, they are not living their truth. The true self is in there, buried deep, but the layers of wounding and programming and societal expectations are so thick, the soul’s inner light has been obscured.
What they show the world, instead, is a facade – a carefully constructed, diligently maintained facade… of which this person is completely unaware.
You don’t have to subject yourself to this type of energetic ickiness. When you get this reading from someone’s energy, it’s okay to remove yourself from them. Send them unconditional love, cut the cords to them if necessary for your well-being, and focus on your own journey. You can’t be the beacon of light you came here to be if you allow yourself to be dimmed.
