Lean into it.

I have been writing a lot lately about taking responsibility for the energy we share with the world around us. I talk about sharing joy and being the light of happiness for yourself and others. Yet there are times when it is okay and even imperative to lean into your sadness, anger, frustration or any other feeling that may not resemble the usual sunshiny picture.

Life likes to hand us tough times once in a while. We are only human, and we all have limits of how much stress or BS we can or are willing to take. We have the right to get angry at that insulting thing that someone said. We are justified to be sad over the loss of a loved one or for any reason actually.

Sometimes the best thing we can do is lean into these feelings and let them in.

When we are too busy denying our true feelings; the Universe and the people around you will know. You aren’t doing yourself or anyone else any favors by pretending otherwise. You are not as good of an actor as you may think you are. Fake happiness still vibes at a lower frequency than real joy and I believe you’re unable to fake it for a reason. That reason is that you are supposed to feel your feelings so that you can heal them.

Now, I don’t mean you have to wallow in misery all day, but you know what? If you need a day to just be as miserable as you need and to let your despair come out your eyes and run down your face; then you really should allow yourself the time to do it!

Sad movie Saturday here you come! It can be a therapeutic release to let those tears out!

If we keep denying our hurt; it will not be possible to bring it out into daylight for the healing it needs. It’s okay to say, “You know what? I am sad today. I just don’t feel like my best self. I need time to heal my spirit and it may take a bit.”

Your loved ones will understand your need for space. They will most likely try and help pull you out of your funk though and this may work for you. You may decide to let them try and help lift your spirits! I know it helps me to get out of the house and hang out with my friends to shake up my routine a bit. My friends and loved ones are a great source of joy.

I just wanted to remind you that it is always okay to feel all your feelings! Just be aware that learning to navigate the healing of them is where the work is all yours too. Lean into that anger, sadness or frustration, really feel it, to find the source.

We must heal ourselves and the source of what brought on those feelings. It’s our job to do the work and ask ourselves; “What must I do to change the situation making me feel this way, so those feelings can leave?” If you need help, ask for it. Those around you cannot read minds any better than you can. There are as professionals who will be glad to help you as well.

Go within to dissect the situation and disolve the source of the pain. It’s still our job to take ownership of our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. The best way to do that is to lean into them, look in the mirror, stare yourself in the face and say “I love you. I believe in you. You are going to get through this.”

Give yourself permission to lean into those emotions and then make a choice to lean into the healing as well. Do you need to find forgiveness for yourself or another? Do you need to change thoughts of judgment to thoughts of love and compassion for someone or yourself? It’s up to you to find your truth on where you need healing.

You are worth the investment of time and effort to mend your mind, body and spirit. I am writing this to let you know you are not alone on your down days. There is nothing wrong with you when this happens. You are perfect the way you are, and if you don’t feel so, you have the power to change too.

You matter and I believe in you and love you.

Wishing you the magical soulful healing you need right now to be the best you can be.

With love,

The feeling IS the prayer

Everything in Life is Vibration’Albert Einstein

Have you heard this saying before? I have. Yet it took me a long time to truly understand the meaning behind it. It’s been proven that the energy we hold in our body is real and the Universe responds to our vibrations. It’s just that we usually don’t notice all vibrations, just the big ones.

Like when we walk into a room and people have been fighting or if there is a party and you just feel the excitement in the air. Anger and Happiness are big emotions that throw off big vibrations, making them easier for us to feel. What about other emotions we don’t often like to share with others, like worry or sadness?

I know lots of people who keep those vibes to themselves because we don’t like to share them with our loved ones. Should we share them freely and bring everyone down to our current lower vibe? So we feel like we aren’t alone? I mean, it is no secret that misery loves company, right?

Here is the thing, I started to understand how I share my vibrations and energy, when I learned about energy healing and Chakras. But it wasn’t until I learned a simple trick, that helped me reframe my thoughts and be able to take responsibility for my big emotions and how they ‘feel’. It’s very simple; I just imagine painting pictures of my thoughts.

I am a nurturer by nature, and this means I care a great deal about my loved ones, animals, the planet and folks I have never met. Pretty much everyone. When I care so much it also means I used to worry about things I could not control. Worry is an energetically lower vibe that does not do anyone any favors. Not the worrier or the one you may be concerned about.

 

I used to say. “Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere.” I knew my worry wasn’t helping but it did not stop me from doing it!

Then, Stacy mentioned a skill she learned on her spiritual journey, that helped her with worry too. She told me to imagine painting a picture of my thoughts and what that picture of worry might look like if I put it down on paper to gift the person I was worried about.

I am quite certain my painted picture of worry would not be pretty. It certainly would not be full of color and expressing the love I know I hold for that person. It would most likely look like a rainy day full of doom and gloom! Is this the kind of picture I truly want to share with the one I am concerned about?! Um no. It is not.

Instead, I started to retrain my brain to send love and light to the areas or people I was concerned for. This is a much better energetic picture to send someone you care deeply about. When I am worried about my daughter, I send her love. I dig deep down in my heart, bring her smile to my mind and feel the warmth of love and caring I have for her. Then I send that feeling out to God/The Universe to help her feel this energy instead of my worry wart, rain cloud picture thoughts.

This is where and how I learned, that the feeling I was holding was indeed the prayer I was sending out to the world on her behalf.

I have another example. Just last week I found out an old friend had been in a horrible car accident and was in a coma, not doing well at all. Of course, my friends and I were very concerned. Yet, I knew it would do us and our friend in the hospital, no good to send up prayers of worry and sadness.

This person’s soul was in a coma, so I suggested instead of sending thoughts of “Please don’t die.” We need to send this person’s soul love. We needed to paint them a beautiful picture of our love and hope of a great life for them.

Can you imagine if your soul was floating around in the ether and hearing “Please Don’t die!” or “Please stay. You are loved. You matter.” Which prayers do you think would feel better if you could feel their vibrations? Which thoughts and words would have a better picture attached? Which picture would you want to hand over to the person in the hospital bed?

If your soul were floating around and could feel the vibration of thoughts and prayers, which feelings would you like to feel? Which prayer would make you feel like coming out of a coma, a rough patch, or sadness? Which prayer would help your soul feel like persisting on this earthly plane?

This is where, the feeling IS the prayer really makes sense to me. It hit home the effect my vibrations could have on myself and others.

When I shared my thought on this with my friends, half of them really liked the idea and the other half didn’t seem to understand what I was saying. This is okay with me. All I can do is speak my truth, but I am hoping this story will help others see what I see now.

Our friend did come out of a coma, they have a long road of recovery ahead, which is a wonderful blessing. Did our feelings, of raising our vibrational thoughts and prayers, make a difference? I am not sure. What I am sure of is that I sent a picture of love to my friend and not worry or fear. I know this is what I would prefer to feel from my loved ones too.

Remember friends, you are painting an energetic picture for the world to feel.

The feeling is the prayer.

What are your feelings and thoughts painting today?

Thank you, for reading my blog today.

Wishing you an abundance of blessings and joy!

Love,
