Soul Retrieval When I was 7 years old, I was hit by a car in front of the school. It was my first day of grade 1. To bare you the gruesome details, I was stuck under the car until some men saw the accident and ran over to lift the car off me. During that traumatic event, as well as during my hospital stay, I experienced multiple soul loss. I want to share my experience of soul retrieval as it was a powerful session of remembering and repatriating parts of myself. What came up was the memory of trying to lift the car off me. I was so upset and very frustrated with myself that I couldn’t move it… that I wasn’t strong enough… that I couldn’t help myself. Most of my life I have been overly hard on myself, feeling like I am weak and dependant on others. But in hindsight, I am a freaking strong woman! I have gone through a lot of stuff. I cared for my terminally ill mom at the age of 17 as well as my younger brother, all by myself. I have walked away from situations that were not aligned with my …

Letting Go of Stuff In the past few months, I’ve been drawn to clean up and clear the clutter. I had done a lot when I moved in with my boyfriend last year, but was still holding on to things I thought I would sell, wear again, use for a special occasion, or just because I had spent money on those items (I was also holding on to what I really wanted to let go of). But the truth is I didn’t feel really good in 1/3 of the clothes in my closet. I stopped wearing a lot of makeup, preferring the feeling of a natural look. And I didn’t have the time, energy, and desire to do a garage sale. So slowly, I’ve been purging one space at a time. I’m not done and will probably revisit those areas again, but it’s freeing. It feels good to share and give what no longer suits me, but might make someone else happy. And it feels good to ‘grow up’, to allow myself to enjoy a different style, one that reflects where and who I am now. My challenge to you is to pick one space or room and really ask …

My struggle with letting go

Admission of truth: My struggle with letting go Have I really been holding on to the past all this time? Thinking I had grieved, I had let go, and I had really changed my perception of what happened. But in reality, I was still holding on to the last sliver of what had been. This small object had followed me everywhere I had moved. It was always a bit tucked away but was sustaining the memory of a past I wanted to let go of, desperately. Maybe it wouldn’t have had the same weight if I hadn’t felt guilty about the thought of removing it from my living room… from my life. Guilty for what? Guilty I might forget? Guilty for not honoring her? But could I really forget? No… I don’t think so. What I want to remember are the good times, what was shared and the heart connection I felt. I don’t want to be reminded of what I lost. And it’s exactly what her ashes do. A constant reminder of what is gone. Honoring her is to honor the values, the opportunities and the love she gave me. I am not honoring her spirit by keeping a physical …

Why I Stopped ‘trying’ to be Positive

Why I Stopped ‘trying’ to be Positive Ok, let me clearer on that title. I’m not saying you should be negative or stay in your rut, but I believe we should let ourselves feel what we are feeling at every moment. When I try to jump from a negative emotion to a positive emotion, I am telling that emotion that is has no place, no purpose and that it’s wrong. Instead, I should acknowledge that emotion for guiding me. For letting me know how I truly feel about something. For showing me what I want and what I no longer desire in my life. When I take the time to be with my emotions, no matter what they are, I give them the attention they need. I recognize their gift. And when I can be grateful for their guidance, I can start moving up the ladder of emotions (Ref. Esther & Jerry Hicks). As I move from a low vibration emotion to a higher vibration emotion, I make room for perceptions to shift and for situations to change. Having self-love and compassion is accepting all of who I am, without negating any part myself. Of course, I’m not saying I …

If you don’t like your body, this post is for you

Loving Yourself – Part 2 – How to change your body image Is there something you don’t like about your body? Do you even hate it sometimes? For the longest time, I sure did. And there are still times I have a tendency to compare myself with others. But I stop myself quickly enough now. Over the last few years I worked really hard at changing those thoughts. How you treat your body (mentally and physically) is a direct reflection of how your body perform in return. We can be so hard on ourselves, on the way we look and feel, but whatever it is you blame your body for, can you really say it’s true? If you are not familiar with process of The Work from Byron Katie, I encourage you to watch these videos. “My body betrayed me…” “I hate my body”… You can start loving your body now, no matter how you feel about it. If you are interested in doing a worksheet based on The Work, you can find her tools for free here. Exercise : A great exercise is to write 10 things you like about yourself every day for 7 days. At the end of …

Love yourself – Part 1 – Your Inner Love Dialogue

Love yourself – Part 1   Your inner love dialogue Do you love your kids? Your family? Your friends? Do you love yourself? Is the last one a little harder to totally acknowledge? One of Reiki’s 5 principles is “I will manifest love and respect to all” and this includes YOU! Do you manifest love and respect to your body? To your mind? To your soul? Do you take care of yourself as well as you take care of your kids for an example? Have you ever stopped yourself and ask if what goes on in your mind’s chatter are mostly thoughts that uplift you or bring you down? Let’s put it this way… would you really say to someone’s face all the things you tell yourself? Do you realize that every time you put yourself down for ANYTHING, it’s like saying how unlovable you are to every cell of your body? No wonder why we get sick, put on weight and attract bad relationships! You really need to be mindful of your self-judgment. What do you tell yourself on a regular basis? How does that reflect in your life? We all share common themes that are very destructive to …
