28 Days of Love: Basking in the Glow of Love

Greetings beloveds,

Can you believe it? 28 Days of Love is coming to a close today. Over the past 4 weeks we have connected with our heart, mind, body, and home/living spaces to find clarity and bring ourselves into alignment with the energy of love.

How do you feel? Take a moment to integrate the information and lessons that you have learned over the past month into your life completely. It may take some time to feel and know what changes you have made or may still need to make. Behavior and thought process changes enhance our states of being. Above all else I hope that this time has brought about compassion for yourself and others. Love is so much more than warm fuzzy feelings. It is the basis of our existence. Through love we find ourselves. Through love we find our purpose.

So I send you forth with love, always and forever.

28 Days of Love: Week 4 The Connection between the Heart and Home

1f18044af5d53bdc881479b8aa59848d.jpg (640×640)

Greetings beloveds,

This month has gone by so quickly! I have to admit though I have been looking forward to this week since I started this project. Week 4 is all about creating a loving heart centered living space. Why do I find this to be the most appealing topic of them all? Because our homes, living, work, cars, and other sacred spaces are the external containers of our energy. They can be the closest (or furthest which we will discuss later) to a safe space that one can encounter. Our homes have such powerful energy associated with them and can affect huge portions of our lives. Yet we are not always called to give them the attention and energy that they can require. When one is trying to stay afloat in a world gone mad maintaining and creating a loving container is one of the most important tasks that we can take upon ourselves to prioritize along with other self-care activities. Perhaps it’s time to check your self-care list and see if there are one or two activities that focus on the care of your home. Perhaps it’s time to start seeing our spaces that we reside in as extensions of ourselves and find balance in those energies.

This week we will explore the heart and the home. The importance of cleansing our living space through clearing and decluttering. Then we will discuss a little bit of the ancient Chinese practice of feng shui so we will know about the relationship between energy, movement, and our homes. After which, we’ll identify the love and relationships portion of the living space in order to see how what we place or don’t place in that area may be affecting our hearts. Lastly, we’ll look at decorating our heart space in order to create the environment that will nurture and feed our souls.

I look forward to continuing to build this loving space with you all.

See you tomorrow,

28 Days of Love: The Sacral Energy Center

sacral-chakra-colors.jpg (250×268)

Greetings beloveds,

I hope you all are having a wonderful day! Today we will be exploring the second energy center of the human form connected to the physical body and movement; the sacral chakra. The sacral energy center houses the energy of creativity, passion, sexuality, and happiness.

Our sexuality is just as tied with our thoughts as with our body. The largest sensory organ of the human form is the skin. We are aroused not just from touch but from all of our senses including our extrasensory ones such as clairvoyance. Through these avenues we take in information and energy from the world around us.  The sacral energy center is one area through we can transmute energy to create and manifest our desires. It is the void where in new life can come forth. Let us not limit ourselves to a simplistic understanding of new life as the actual birth of a child. Let us look at life through an energetic lens. In that case all that exists or could exists lives. Thus we birth ideas, books, hopes, dreams, homes, businesses, societies, relationships, anything and more than we could ever dream of. This is why it is so important to nurture and balance our sacral energy center. For when our sacral center is out of balance we continue to manifest yet instead of the things we would like to come forth we find ourselves in situations and experiences we would rather avoid. It is in accordance to the 12 Universal Laws which do not see good and bad only the energy that we send out.

Activating the sacral energy center will not only increase your ability to manifest (hopefully things you desire) but regulates our creativity energy in general. When that energy is clear and flowing we feel inspired, creative, renewed as if we can do anything. When the energy becomes stagnant you may feel yourself becoming stagnant as well. When you find yourself feeling this way it may be in relation to the amount of stress  you are experiencing. Stress is defined as any emotional or mental tension from adverse circumstances that one may not generally encounter. As you can tell from the general definition anything can be stressful depending on one’s perspective. This is why the practice of caring about how you feel is so important. A sure fire way to connect to your feelings and learn to be guided by your intuition is to connect to your sacral energy center.

I hope you’ll stop by tomorrow as we look at one last portion of our energy and the physical through kundalini.

With love,

Rose

28 Days of Love: The Physiology of the Mind

iStock_000022240209Small.jpg (766×627)

Greetings beloveds,

I hope that the exercises and information that has been shared about how our thoughts affect our reality have been useful for you. Changing the way we think effects the energy we attract and in turn the types of relationships that we will have with ourselves and others. Yet it is also important to understand how the brain works so for today we have  a bit of homework to do.

I’ve compiled this quick list of links to sites that cover the physiology and functions of the brain.

Web MD- Brain Human Anatomy

Inner Body- Human Brain and Nervous System

Brain HQ – The Brain in Love

Harvard Mahoney Neuroscience Institute – Love and the Brain 

Now that we have an idea of how the brain works and how it interacts with what we have come to recognize as love some of your behaviors and patterns in relating to others may make more sense. Overall, how we relate to others depends on how we have been trained and what we have found works  (or at least we justify that it should work) to get us the results we desire.

If you haven’t already test it out. Take note of how you feel when you are around a person, animal, or thing that you love. Then note how you feel when you eat certain foods such as chocolate or others that personally for you have positive associations. Do you find that you are experiencing similar feelings in both situations? Take notes and let me know what you find out.

With love as always,

-Rose

28 Days of Love: The Power of Focus

How-to-create-a-mind-map-mindmap.jpg (1582×736)

Greetings beloveds,

Now that we’ve covered ways to clear our mind now we can begin to direct our thoughts towards sending energy towards creating the life we desire. We’ve all heard of the law of attraction which states that what appears in our life depends on the energy we put out whether we are aware of it or not. Things get sticky when it comes to this conversation because who would put out an energy to attract pain, abuse, or fear? What about the children who are hurt? How could they have put out an energy to attract that? The choice to harm another comes solely from the perpetrator never from the one receiving the abuse. We live in a world of co-creation with a lot of wonky lingering energy. This energy has been around for so long we are often unaware of its presence and thus are unable to direct ourselves away from it. This is why it is important to take time to become aware of your thoughts and clear out space to evaluate whether they are thoughts, experiences, and energy that you would like to have in your life. If not then work must be done to let those thoughts go.

Now we have some space to grow, to create. What are your dreams? What do you want your world to look like? This space is calling for you to put forth what you would like your world to include yet often we are so busy living our lives and caring for others we let the same energy come right back into our consciousness. Using tools such as a mind map or a vision board can help you find clarity. Once you have an idea of what you desire it is then time to turn your attention towards those desires. Find images, draw, sing, dance, create affirmations, do whatever you can to bring your attention towards that which you desire.

It is important though to use that heart connection to assess whether your focus is on your lack of what you desire or on the feelings on joy and anticipation of receiving your desire. If it’s coming from a spirit of lack time to go general. Find whatever brings you joy and focus on that. For me, it’s Bob’s Burgers the cartoon. This show makes me laugh no matter what is going on in my life. It immediately makes me smile and feel happy. What’s your Bob’s Burgers? Find it and use that as a springboard to get to that feel good space where you ready to turn your attention towards your desires. Then if you feel that edge of “but I don’t have it”, “it’s hard to get this”, “I can’t wait for it to be here” that’s your signal to move your attention to that joy button and get back in that space of attracting what you want and not what you don’t.

If you’re a bit skeptical of whether you have the ability to not only influence but create your life here’s a little experiment that you can do. Pick your favorite color, dessert, book, or item and spend 5-10 minutes of your meditation time on that thing. See yourself eating, reading, or with your favorite thing. Picture how happy you are when you have it. If it’s difficult to use visualization then perhaps turn this into a song, write about it, or paint it. Just find something to use to focus your energy on that thing. Know that you have it. Do this for 5-7 days and then release it. In time it will come to you most likely in a way that you didn’t expect.

Have fun dreaming and creating loves!

28 Days of Love: Connecting With Your Higher Self

fhae5yyaer.jpg (709×611)

Day 3 Connecting With Your Higher Self

When looking for love we often search outside of ourselves. Buying things, eating rich comfort food, in the company of friends, family, and romantic partners, in various forms of entertainment. Yet, no matter how fulfilling these connections may be, they are nothing in comparison to the connection to authentic self. Finding love from within for many is a lifelong journey.  Everyone experiences the lifelong task of being the embodiment of love that must be continuously and consistently nurtured. When we make this connection though, it provides us with a gateway to our “higher self”. You may have heard this term thrown around the new age, spiritual, conscious, enlightened and whatever else folks are calling themselves these days sphere. Realize that your higher self is nothing more than that innate portion of your being that gently (or for some of us not so gently) guides and supports us. That which is outside of time and space that exists in order to hold our energy in whatever form it may take.

Some folks are preoccupied with connecting with their higher self through meditation, clean eating, and “vibrating higher”. I have another secret to share with you. You are always connected with your higher self. You are always one – just in different forms. One form is not better or worse than the other we just are. In our entirety. We may not be as aware as we could be of the information available to us in this life form. That is the advantage of connecting with our higher self. Insight, wisdom and ultimately power to transmute energy. When we are connected to our soul being or our higher selves it is our direct line to unconditional divine love.

Tomorrow check out how to connect to your higher self.

28 Days of Love: Connecting With Your Heart Exercise

electric_heart_by_gxmew.png (1280×960)

Day 2 Connecting with your heart exercise

Are you feeling that heart energy? It’s a soft, gentle, tug that flows from the center of your chest to your crown. It swirls through your brow brushing out the clouds of lowness. Bringing a sense of euphoria and celebration. It moves gentle down through your root, legs, and feet to connect you to the Earth. Grounding you in everlasting abundance and stability.

Heart Connection Exercise

Find a comfortable spot where you will be able to relax. This could be a chair, on a pillow on the floor, or your favorite place outside. Anywhere where you can relax, focus and not be interrupted is preferred. Settle into your space. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on your breath. Feel as the oxygen flows into your lungs, filling them with life. Envision all of your worries, all of the drama, all of your responsibilities of the day filling those bits of air. As you completely fill yourself with this deep breath hold it for 5-8 seconds. Really putting your attention towards instilling each other air particle with the stress that you intend to release. When you exhale envision all of those worries releasing to the universe where they are transmuted into refreshing air for the natural world.

Continue these breaths 5-10 times or for however long it takes until you feel completely at ease. Once you have entered that space, center your attention on each chakra starting with your root chakra. Feel it pulse, pull, and draw round your etheric being. There will be a moment when you will feel that connection. It is different for everyone. If you don’t feel anything such as a wave of energy flowing in that area. Repeat this for your sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras. As you move upwards through each chakra pull that energy along as you go. Some areas may feel sluggish, although this isn’t an exercise to clear one’s energy you may want to spend some time doing so. You may feel a slight buzzing around your head from this exercise. Continue to move that energy upwards past the crown for our energy fields extend much further than that. In fact continue to let you energy expand as far out as you desire (to infinity and beyond ;)! )

At this time bring your attention back to your heart chakra located at the center of your chest. Feel it pulsate with life and joy. If you feel sorrow, regret, pain, or worry focus on the center of your heart. Burrow down and envision a spark of light/energy/life at that center point. From there picture whatever makes you smile. Then transfer your smile to your heart center. Let your heart smile ad shine forth. Fill it with joy and let that emotion of well-being radiate outwards moving down through your lower chakras into the earth then upwards until it reaches the stars.

When your heart smiles you are connected. Let your joy be your guide.
