Journey from the Head to the Heart

Journey from the Head to the Heart

The Mastery of Alignment

Here it comes again…

I feel it bubbling beneath the surface like poison coursing through my veins.

My body physically tenses and contracts as it senses what’s coming.

All too familiar with the uncomfortable cycle playing out.

The searing feeling of dread and nausea as it rises fiercely from the darkest depths of pain buried within my core. 

I try to ignore it and push it back down, but it’s not giving up. 

The lump in my throat as I determinedly push down the tears that so desperately want to burst through and flow. 

The palpitations and tightness rip savagely inside my chest. 

I gasp for air as the suffocating cloak of fear wraps around me and takes hold.

I close my eyes and feel myself spinning back to the dark place.  

Here it comes, the voice in my head. 

That familiar bossy voice that likes to control and tell me it’s for my own good.

Why does it always have to put me down? 

The constant repetition of you’re not good enough, you’re not worthy, you deserve all the bad things you get. 

Why can’t the voice be kind? Why does it have to be so cruel?

Crashing and bumping around until my head just feels like one big mixing pot of sticky mush.  

The incessant fidgeting and need to keep busy, what can I do to distract myself? 

I scream inside my head ‘I can’t keep doing this’, as it gets louder and louder. 

I scream again and again trying to block out the unrelenting noise. 

And then, I feel the tired, heavy aching pain in my heart as my soul tries to reach me and whispers I can help you’. 

No, no, no I don’t want to look at the pain buried there. 

I feel as if my heart will crack in two with the sheer force of the shame, rage, and guilt trying to spill out and escape. 

It’s best to bury it,’ the ‘’other’’ voice cunningly encourages. 

Enticing me, with any distraction it can. Have a drink, a cigarette, a bar of chocolate…. whatever I want, under the malicious pretense of it being fun and keeping me safe.

The soul softly replies, ‘You have a choice, you can turn this around. You just need to choose’.

The constant push and pull battle continues inside me. 

I want to change but I’m so scared. The face of fear feels safe and comforting like an old friend.

I begin to shiver, even though the tortuous pain in my heart is burning.  

I screech ‘I’m not brave enough. It’s too painful’. 

The soul tries again, and gently says, ‘Place your hand on your heart. Breathe in deeply and slowly, as you connect. This is how you find me. I can help you, you just need to be willing, let go. Just let go. I’ve got you’.

I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, I yell back. 

The soul replies ‘In every moment be willing. Practice, practice, practice. It will come, be brave dear one’. 

It continues ‘Remember, the journey from the head to the heart, is not for the faint hearted. It can be a spiralling path of pain as you travel and delve into the darkest places buried within. Be willing. Each step taken will guide you to the next’. 

I feel myself floating in and out of consciousness as time ceases to exist in the sharpened claws of pain. 

Finally, as the tears begin to subside, anxiety and fear hastily retreat into the shadows for now.

Exhaustion takes over as I wearily survive another day of occupying my head. 

I know I must make changes. But desperately wonder how? 

Then I hear the souls nurturing voice ‘I’ll be here every time, I’ll never let you give up.’

Until next time…

Chanting – Creating Conscious Connection

Chanting – Creating Conscious Connection

Have you ever chanted or felt a strong pull towards chanting? 

If you have, then you will know that you do not choose chanting, it chooses you! 

This is a magnetic pull from the universe asking you to connect and begin a conscious conversation of mystic vibrational dialect. 

Consistency in this practice creates embodiment of the divine and space for profound shifts in your life, as the sound of your words emit a frequency that draws experiences to you to reflect and align to that frequency. 

It can clear subconscious patterns and habits, enhance intuition, and open the guidance of the heart and the universe. Empowering an individual to change their life state and karma by transmuting their pain, trauma and suffering into joy, peace and balance. 

Chanting creates powerful vibrations within the body and energetic system. After chanting it is possible to notice the blueprint of the mantra still oscillating and pulsating within you even after you have stopped. 

Put quite simply this vibrational practice increases your frequency flow! 

Chanting is fundamentally linked to breathing and there is a natural internal entrainment between our heart-rate and our breathing pattern. Meaning if one alters, so does the other. Therefore, when we chant we not only synchronise our breathing but our hearts too! 

Imagine the uplifting effects of tens, hundreds and thousands of people all chanting together, elevating and supporting heart-based consciousness and unity across the planet. It’s mind blowing! 

Chanting is an ancient practice that calms your mind and soul. It has been used for thousands of years by Hindus, Buddhists and Christians. It can promote health benefits and combat the stresses of modern life. 

You may well ask, how can something as simple as chanting improve my overall wellbeing? 

Well let’s look at some of the science involved.

Did you know that there are 84 meridian points on the roof of the mouth? 

When you chant out loud your tongue stimulates those meridian points, and they in turn stimulate the hypothalamus, pineal gland, and the pituitary gland, strengthening the glandular system and changing the chemistry of the brain. 

There are many areas of the brain that are stimulated and become better regulated when chanting. A key area is the hypothalamus of the brain which is responsible for maintaining the homeostasis of the body and regulating emotional responses. It also helps to calm down the amygdala part of the brain which plays an important role in regulating our responses to fear and anger. 

This was evidenced in a study by the University of Hong Kong that showed when people were chanting and shown fear-inducing photos, areas of the brain that would normally light up on MRI scans that indicate fear started to disappear, showing that chanting can help to moderate and get rid of fear. But it was not just any word if they chanted “Santa Clause” nothing changed so the spiritual blueprint and frequency of the words being chanted are important. 

Chanting has also been shown to help those with post traumatic stress disorder and can increase brain function for those suffering from strokes and epilepsy. 

It can also play an important role and have a positive impact on regulating the central nervous system, as well as providing an opportunity to express and relieve you of intense emotions. Don’t worry if you get a bit teary whilst practicing the act of chanting, as crying is perfectly normal and it is a natural way of connecting you to a deeper emotional state of release. 

Studies show that when we chant on a regular basis our immune system is boosted and we are less likely to become ill. It creates more endorphins in our body and helps to create a better mood by helping to decrease anxiety and depressive symptoms. 

This is illustrated beautifully in the book “Human Sounds” by Jonathan Goldman. He followed a group of French Benedictine monks who chanted every single day and then decided to stop chanting. And low and behold, they started getting sick and when they were chanting they were hardly ever ill. 

Chanting and consistency in this practice creates conscious connection on a profound level. 

If you are curious about chanting and not sure where to start, then begin with chanting the universal vibration of OM for a few minutes each day, gradually increasing the duration. Feel and connect with the vibration it creates and notice the changes it can create for you! 

You may just be surprised by the gifts that are unveiled.

Forgiveness: Self Harm Versus Self Love

Forgiveness: Self Harm Versus Self Love

They say sorry is one of the hardest words to say.

This may well be true, however, sorry is a word.

It’s that simple.

It can be said and banded around with little or no real meaning.

How many times are children asked to say ‘sorry’, literally for the sake of it?

If I’m honest, what I’ve found to be more true and certainly harder is the act of forgiveness.

How easy is it to say the words ‘I forgive you?’

Forgiveness invokes a whole new ball game of buried feelings, thoughts, emotions, raw pain, hurt, betrayal, bitterness.

So how do you begin the journey of forgiveness?

Before we start, let’s be clear that to forgive does not mean to forget. It’s healthy to have boundaries and to not have people in your life if that is the right choice for you.

Now I have clarified that, I want to invite you to think about this question.

Do you want to transform the stubborn mind chatter in your head, from thoughts of ‘ they don’t deserve my forgiveness’, ‘I’ll never forgive them till the day I die’, to saying these three little words ‘I forgive you’ and not only saying them but unconditionally meaning it?

Yes, then, let’s take a look.

Firstly, it’s important to understand that all emotions, thoughts and feelings carry a specific energy vibration; this affects the vibration of an organ or area of the body, which in turn affects the vibrational frequency of the body. Where the vibrational frequency is low the natural frequency and harmonious pattern is disrupted.

This can manifest into illness or disease unless the vibrational template is changed.

If we look at the act of refusing to forgive, to hold onto energy patterns of resentment, anger, hate, rage and other dense energy thoughts, emotions, and feelings attached to this action, then we are only hurting ourselves.

No one else!

The great author Lewis B. Smedes said;

‘To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.’

It is so important to understand this.

To forgive someone isn’t a weakness.

It is ultimately an act of self love to yourself.

To stop projecting self-harm onto yourself.

Giving yourself permission to be free.

To stop the self-harm from the toxicity and the pollution this can energetically create in your body, relationships, environment and so much more.

Self love versus self harm?

The choice is up to you.

Understanding and perception come hand in hand, as a second step.

When we are able to look at a person or event that has caused us pain from a different perspective, it’s like turning on a light for the first time.

We begin to see shadows where there was once darkness. We see angles instead of straight lines, we see depth instead of nothingness.

From this an understanding can begin to form and be born of why someone did what they did, or why an event happened. The development of understanding is key to helping the heart discover compassion and the mind to quieten the tortuous thoughts that can repeatedly play out such as resentment and betrayal.

Some acts of hurt against us can be so huge, be so deeply buried and stored for a lifetime, that even by knowing all of this, we find we still cannot break free.

What then?

Be willing!

Every day, when you feel you simply cannot do it, say to yourself,

‘I’m willing to forgive’.

Every moment, of every day, soften your mind, soften your heart and say to yourself,

‘I’m willing to forgive’.

One day, you will wake up, you will feel different, lighter, and realise you are no longer willing.

It’s done, you’ve made it.

The willingness has been transmuted to forgiveness.

Every tiny step you made, no matter how difficult and painful it felt, added up to the finale in the act forgiveness.

In the words of Tyler Perry – (world-renowned producer, director, actor, screenwriter, playwright, author, songwriter, entrepreneur, and philanthropist).

‘It’s not an easy journey, to get to a place where you forgive people. But it is such a powerful place, because it frees you.

Never a truer word said.

Become a master of self love and bestow upon yourself one of the greatest gifts in this lifetime, mastering the act of forgiveness.

From my heart to yours.
