Releasing Expectations (of self)

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older, too

~ Stevie Nicks

You don’t have to be what others want/need you to be. It’s okay to release the fear of letting them down.

It’s okay to not feel okay. Discomfort points the way toward growth. It highlights issues that are ready to be addressed and released.

It’s good to know your limits and to express them with honesty and kindness.

You don’t have to maintain a constant state of busy-ness. Rest is important, too. Find the balance that works for you.

You don’t have to conform to society’s standards of youthful beauty. Allow your outside to reflect your inner beauty in whatever way feels right to you.

Eat what makes you happy. The “perfect” diet won’t make you a perfect human.

It’s okay to be imperfect. We’re here to make mistakes and learn from them.

We’re all connected. If we each give ourselves the freedom to be who we truly are, we really can change the world.

Releasing Expectations (of others)

If I could
Maybe I’d give you my world
How can I
When you won’t take it from me

~ Lindsey Buckingham

We have ideas of how people should be – everyone, but especially those we’re close to. They should do this, they should let us do that, they should give this, they should accept that.

What if we released all those shoulds? What if we stopped trying to change them and just allowed them to be who they are? And if who they are doesn’t align with who we are, let them go their own way?

Relating to people out of love and truth, and not out of image or obligation – wouldn’t this be lovely?

We’re all connected. If we give each other the freedom to be who we truly are, humanity might just start to heal.

reBirth

yellow and white rose

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 By recognizing patterns across past (and parallel) lives, I’ve been able to start letting go of some of my outdated thought/behavior/belief patterns.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!

 

Quick Energy Cleanse

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!

Affirmation Meditation

Using positive statements in the present tense can help you create powerful change in your life. To be honest, when I first tried using affirmations, it felt awkward. But I gave the process a fair chance, and came to realize that it helped me utilize the power of the present moment to implement positive change. With repetition of affirmations, you can see your life start to align with the beautiful truth of who you really are.

In this meditation, we use a sampling of positive affirmations. Even if they don’t ring true for you at first, give them a try. Once you get used to the process, create your own affirmations, customized to your life, and use them in any way that feels right to you.

Realign with the Earth

earth day 2019

To celebrate Earth Day, I’m re-sharing my Earth Energy Meditation. This quick, gentle process helps you realign with the healing frequency of our planet.

If you prefer, you can listen to it on iTunes.

This meditation incorporates music tuned to the Schumann resonance, the frequency of the earth’s electromagnetic field. To learn more about the Schumann resonance, here is a fantastic article by Dr. Joe Dispenza.

where ideas go to die

This post isn’t nearly as negative as its title implies. In fact, it has a positive message. But the title fits. You’ll see why…

boardwalk swamp

While in a meditative state, I stood with my Higher Self on a wooden platform at the edge of a swamp. An old man with sparkling eyes stood near us. My Self and I each held a tiny memory chip in our hand. One chip was “the idea that being constantly busy proves your worth.” The other: “the idea that worrying about someone proves you love them.”

The old man told us to toss both “idea chips” into the swampy water. So we did.

They hit the water and broke up into bubbles, each bubble bursting with a tiny spark of light.

I asked the old man where we were. He said, “This is where ideas go to die. It’s not as dramatic as it sounds. It’s where we release them when they’ve outlived their usefulness.”

I invite you to take a moment to examine your ideas, your beliefs. Are there any you feel you’ve outgrown? Are you ready to release them?
