Speaking Your Truth

Slide1

Recently I have been considering the true meaning behind the statement “Speaking your Truth”.   Since I have been working on both healing and removing past karma to ascend, many new thoughts about life, circumstances, experiences and people have been coming to mind. I have seen people telling others they hurt them, and I have done this as well. I have seen people offering their opinions about behaviors, thoughts, etc, when they were never asked. I have seen people play victim, martyr, savior. And, we all have done this in one way or another in this lifetime and others. This to me is our ego, and not really our truth. As I understand it, the soul is our Truth. We need to connect to our own soul by healing the past.

While I have been one to question and deeply think about a lot of things in my life, I find now I’m doing it even more. I have been working on speaking my truth, as it is one of my biggest karmic lessons from many previous lifetimes.  My mind has always been one to look at all angles simultaneously.  I see the interconnectedness of many differing ways of being, different understandings of life and belief systems. I have been fascinated with other beliefs, cultures and ways of life for my entire life, and thus, am always open and accepting of other’s thoughts and opinions. This has sometimes stifled my voice, where I really wasn’t quite sure what my Truth was.  I waited until “the right time”, and missed it. The right time is the moment, otherwise, it tends to pass on by. Other times it has opened my mind to something I hadn’t realized or considered.

So, now I’m doing all of this on a much deeper level, working on understanding where my ego is getting in the way.  I have talked about letting our soul lead us, and to do this, we have a lot of ego situations and old karma to release, transform and heal.  It is a very deep and layered process.  Knowing we all are mirrors to each other, any and all interactions can be profound learning experiences. Being an energy worker for at least 10 years (Reiki Master, Intuitive, etc), while also working in the public at a busy restaurant for the past three years, I have had tons of learning experiences!  When our feelings are hurt, it is our feelings.  I believe, most people do not purposely hurt another’s feelings.  So, is it okay to tell someone “you hurt my feelings”?  Or “You made me angry”? I have read with relationships, we need to state “it hurt my feelings when…” or “it made me angry…”.  This is a different energy.  We are not blaming someone else, we are not playing victim,  We are expressing our emotions.  It is important to note, we are in charge of our own emotions. By saying that someone did something to you, such as “you hurt my feelings”, it is giving your power away. I once read someone say “wow, you are giving me a lot of power”, after another saying “you hurt my feelings”.  Think about that.  What is your Truth here? My truth is that I was giving my power away. My truth is still part of my emotional response, yet emotional response can be linked to ego. My ego was hurt.  Ego is here to allow us to have a personality and carry out the wishes of the soul.  When we give our power away, we are not listening to our soul. We are not taking responsibility for ourselves, our emotions, our thoughts, our opinions, etc. Our soul is a completely different energy once we start connecting to it.  Learning about past lives via Akashic Records, or other means, can allow us to recognize why we are experiencing the lives we chose.  Yes, the lives we chose.  It may seem that someone would not want to choose a certain life, but the soul has a reason to learn that lesson, and to release past karma.  Soul contracts, soul connections and soul lives are all part of our being and why we are here.

In this 3 year time frame, especially at the restaurant (and some family karmic lessons), I have grown quite a bit. Going through different layers of speaking my truth. From a gal who tends to be a huge challenge at work as she is rather pushy, to dealing with difficult customers, a large variety of personalities – both customers and co-workers – and being an energy worker, it has brought up so much to consider before speaking my truth.

I know speaking my truth is not being mean, aggressive or rude. Sometimes, it may feel that way to the other person, but that is something in them they need to address.  But, I do my best to speak with kindness, love and compassion when I need to say something to someone. I do my best to be a bit diplomatic while allowing my emotions to show. For most of my life, I didn’t allow my truth to be spoken. A lot of it has to do with karmic lessons, and those are truths in themselves. The truth of who we used to be in thousands of lifetimes, and what we did, accepting them, learning from them, releasing them and letting them go.  Many lifetimes I was not allowed to speak my truth for fear of incredible punishment, or abandonment or being literally kicked out of my home. Many lifetimes we have experienced as women were times when women were not seen at the same level as a man. Women had no power. When we exercised any type of power, punishment ensued.  You know in your heart, male or female, you have experienced this or know it is still happening in certain parts of our world.  The truth is that women and men are equal in that the characteristics of each need balance within us and this world. We need to find that balance within our own male and female characteristics.  This is part of our truth. At least how I understand it right now.  In other lifetimes, we may have been a male or female slave, who wasn’t allowed to speak.  We may have been a prisoner of some sort.  You may have been the jailer.  You may have owned slaves.  You may have participated in a variety of things, both “good” and “bad”, according to our soul’s and societies understanding of life. All of these lifetimes build up in us, creating karma and energy that we are here to release.  That is one of my current truths:  old karma energy needs to be released.

Speaking my truth is letting others know I am a soul working on healing and ascending. Through this process, I may have to voice something uncomfortable to myself or another.  But, when we question why we are stating or voicing something, and understanding the deeper meaning behind it, we are learning, growing and becoming more soul focused.  Soul comes from Spirit. Spirit is Love. Love of self and ALL. It is knowing each person is here for a reason. That reason may be complicated, or it may be simple.  It depends on our understanding, our healing and our level of ascension. It is knowing that anyone’s understanding, healing or ascension level is neither right or wrong, neither good or bad, neither better or worse. It is that person’s current Truth.  Truth is sometimes our opinion, our thoughts and beliefs.  But we need to question those as to whether we truly believe them, and whether they are ego-based.  Ego will judge itself and others, complain, argue the point, criticize and compare itself to others. Soul will allow others to be, and not be affected by other’s behaviors. Soul can show compassion, empathy, kindness and sympathy, yet soul understands there is a bigger picture on why, even if our current understanding does not know why. Again, this is my current understanding. As I continue my healing journey, releasing karma and ascending, I look forward to other, further and deeper understandings of Speaking My Truth, and what it means to be Living My Truth, and being even more Soul led.

Namaste!

Heather

Challenge Your Beliefs

Slide1Have you ever stopped yourself in mid-thought, and then thought “Why am I thinking this?”  Perhaps it’s an opinion, belief or understanding you’ve had that suddenly, doesn’t make sense to you anymore? Perhaps it doesn’t feel right any longer?

About 14 years ago, 1-2 years after I was divorced, I was sitting in my church at mass, and I heard the priest state “…The ONLY Son of God.”  And, out of the blue…I thought “What?”  How can Jesus Christ be the ONLY Son of God, when WE are also told we are ALL Sons and Daughters of God? Suddenly, I thought to myself…”this doesn’t make sense anymore.”  If you know me now, you know I believe in many different, spiritual teachers spiritual entities and deities, including Christ and more.  I believe we all have the Divine within us, and are all a fraction of this Divine energy, therefore, all connected to each other as One. To me, it’s all about spirituality and oneness, learning to work with each other with our unique gifts.  Anyway, what’s very interesting to me as I look back upon that experience, is how did I not challenge that belief before that specific time?

I grew up with religion, astrology and metaphysical understandings in my life. Yet, it was that moment in time, when my life had a very profound shift in my beliefs. I was on autopilot at church! I had been accepting what the Catholic Church told me as my Truth without question. Before this moment, I had challenged the marriage contract where my belief was “it should not be broken.”  I believed that with my whole being, which caused me a lot of stress. A very wise woman asked me “if he is not honoring the contract, why are you?” My ex-husband (not to take his inventory for those who may be offended by my next words), abused drugs and alcohol. He was hardly ever home, as since I was not accepting of his lifestyle, which was hidden from me, until we were already married, by him and his family.  Once married, he stayed away from me to be with his friends who would party with him.  He had talked himself into saying it was okay to be doing coke because he worked long hours and he needed to stay awake. Basically, he really wasn’t participating in the marriage.

Anyway, when I challenged the marriage contract, I was still rather upset and nervous about it, as I am a person of my word. My wise counselor helped, but what really helped was when we told my Grandma.  By, “we”, I mean my mother and I.  My Mom thought my Grandma would be super upset due to her religious beliefs.  But, we were very surprised by what she said. She told me “honey, if he isn’t being good to you, and you aren’t happy, then you do what makes you happy.”  It was like someone took the shackles off my mind surrounding marriage. Now, I also believe people should try to work out their differences, and we both had went to counseling, however, in my circumstance, it didn’t bring us help, but helped me start to heal.

So, I am sitting in church, with my sudden revelation, and also felt free of being a hypocrite sitting there, a divorced woman. I was no longer some pariah, or feeling as though I should be shunned, as women have been through-out history for divorce, or being “tossed out” by their husband.  And we, as women, carry this around in our energy from previous lifetimes and our ancestors. I’ve released many of this now through working with my personal Akashic Records, and releasing with Reiki and other energy work.  Talk about Freedom!  I walked out that day and felt very happy. I haven’t returned to a formal church sermon since then, although I know they can bring lots of good to people.  I loved the singing, and the community, but I was no longer vibrating at that frequency.

Even prior to the revelation, I had been doing yoga, and read all sorts of alternative self-help books, had been going to Al-Anon, and absorbed as much information and knowledge as I could. I kept it up during and after the divorce. Others started noticing a huge difference in me after the divorce.  They saw me as happier.  I was actually radiating a pure happiness. Others had always told me they felt a calmness around me, and I made them “feel better” by just being around, but now there was a different level of it.  True, I was no longer stressed by the marriage, but I was also working on healing myself, which brings upped my vibration.

I have dated others and I have not yet met my Divine Partner, but each has taught me more to heal and transform myself.  I know it is imperative to continue my healing journey and Divine Order and Timing will take care of the rest. Relationships are definitely a wonderful way to learn about yourself. Having an Akashic Records reading to understand contracts with people in your life is definitely a wonderful tool.  I have a friend who had multiple readings with me and has cleared out a lot of karma! As once you know what the karma is about, you can use energy work, like Reiki, to remove the energy cords and blockages. The last relationship I had was one of the most powerful ones to really give me a huge energetic push to do more energy healing work on myself and receive energy work from others. I continue on my healing journey and my soul path, and am thankful of the wisdom I have gained through many different types of relationships through-out my life.

If you would like assistance to release past karma, old beliefs and relationships, which no longer serve you, Please contact me for a reading or session.  15 minute free consultations are available.

Love & Light! ~ Heather

Emotional Messages

Slide1

Our emotions sends us messages.

Emotional reactions provide a starting point where healing can begin. Our emotional reactions are a key area to investigate to start the healing process. These emotions can tell us where hidden hurts may exist, or still exist, that need to be healed so we can transform from them to move forward in life. These hidden hurts often create blockages in our lives. We need to release these blockages to help us heal and ascend from them, allowing ourselves to be free from the past.  Energy work (like Reiki or Akashic Records readings) is a powerful tool to help remove these blockages. When we have powerful emotional reactions to someone or something, it can be linked back to some type of trauma or unresolved issue within us.

Being defensive is another way to see what needs to be healed within ourselves. For instance, if we become upset if someone isn’t listening to us, it may be that we don’t feel as if anyone has ever listened to us, or that we don’t appear to be important to them. Or maybe we become angry if someone is judging us in a critical way.  Maybe someone lashes out at you for doing something they think is “wrong”.  Whatever it is that gives us a strong emotional reaction, gives us a hint to our inner emotional, mental or spiritual wounds. We can take the time to step away from the situation to ponder the reasoning behind our reactions. Remember the action or reaction of the other person is their own personal issue…not ours. This gives us a starting point on what we are still holding onto which is not for our highest good.

We can examine ourselves as to why we are having this reaction. This allows us to start determining the root cause of our own issue. We may ask ourselves “Have we done this to others, so we feel guilty?” Or perhaps we grew up with others telling us we didn’t know what we were talking about, so we didn’t feel important, and perhaps still feel that way. Perhaps we were told we couldn’t do something when we really wanted to do it as a child, or even a grown adult! Maybe we were ignored, hidden or told to remain silent, as children were to be seen, not heard.  Maybe we were told to “grow up” when we really needed a hug and someone to listen to us.  Maybe we were told to calm down, when we just really needed to get the excess energy out of our systems. Or something else entirely. When we recognize the issue, we can then work through it, going within to fully understand and release it. We unknowingly accept beliefs as children or even as we grow up that are not in our best interests.  We accept opinions of others as our understanding of life or ourselves. These are not necessarily our true truths, or our soul truths. This is where healing begins. This is where we can change our beliefs and opinions of ourselves. This is how we  begin our transformation after an awakening.  We awaken to the issue, recognize where it is somehow harming us or holding us back, release it and change the beliefs, opinions and thoughts around it, others and ourselves. 

Healing continues as we run into other experiences or similar situations and recognize our emotional reactions as our own issues more quickly to release the emotion and keep healing. A similar situation may bring up another issue attached to the same situation, or a deeper layer of that issue. It can bring up another issue attached to that experience. Being told something hurtful is some way can lead to multiple beliefs, some of them that are hidden until we can figure them out, which is why similar instances will happen to us.

Life provides us the people, situations and experiences to give us messages as to how we can awaken, heal and transform ourselves, which allows us to vibrate at a higher frequency of Love.  The higher our vibrations, the more we attract others vibrating at the same frequency, bringing different lessons, but also a higher understanding of who we are at our soul level.  These people will support us, encourage us and allow us to become more soulfully empowered, living our truth, our authenticity and our true soul purpose.  This brings a new way of life and perspective.  This new perspective can bring us more Joy, more Peace and more Love.  It brings us wisdom and knowledge to utilize to continue living in this different state, not being as affected by others around us, somehow living and vibrating above it all. It helps us to continue forward with strength, courage and motivation, continuing our lives in the best possible way for us. It can lead us to a deeper understanding that we are a soul having an experience as a human to allow the soul to advance, shedding all that it is not required to hold onto any longer. Yes, we will still have lessons and other issues to contend with, yet when they arrive, we have fresh eyes allowing us to fully accept ourselves and be more open to further change if we find it is our soul truth at that time. 

Our emotions are key messages to help us learn, transform and awaken a more brilliant version of ourselves,  bringing us more fully into our soul empowerment. Are you ready to start understanding your emotional reactions? Are you ready to release the old to live the new?  I’m available to help you along your journey.  Please message me at heatherclang@yahoo.com to book a free 15 minute consultation or to book an appointment. 

Namaste! ~ Heather

Live in Peace

Slide1

Live in Peace with Love in every way, every day.

Living in Peace starts with cultivating Love within yourself and for yourself. When you discover the feeling of Divine Love within you, you can radiate it outwards, touching others with the energy of Peace with Love. To me, Peace & Love go hand-in-hand. You must have Love to create peace. Starting with you, allows you to see your self with clear eyes, allows you to accept yourself as you are, and allows you to release old beliefs, thoughts and opinions, transforming them and creating new ones all about Love to radiate Peace. And, once you are seeing and living in Peace with Love, you are more able to see others clearly, accepting others just as they are. We are told to treat each other as we would treat ourselves. And, in life I have seen others treat others as they treat themselves in ways that are hurtful, as many haven’t discovered the magic in truly loving themselves. It is so important to create Peace every way in every day to heal, transform and awaken the Divine Love that already exists within you to allow you to flow easily and effortlessly with Peace.

If I can assist you in your healing and soul journey, please contact me at: HeatherCLang@yahoo.com. I’m offering free 15 minute consultations. If you book a one hour session, in September or October, I’m offering $15 off. One hour session for $60 instead of $75, for both new and current clients. Let’s remove and uncover issues, thoughts and beliefs that can be released so you can become “Become Soulfully Empowered™” to live in Peace with Love.

Namaste! ~ Heather

Eclipse Time! (AGAIN!)

Starting July 12, we have three eclipses, each two weeks apart.  We typically only have two eclipses, but this summer we have three! This is a powerful time of transformation with many different planetary alignments. In the first half of the year, you may have felt “stuck” or like you weren’t able to get anything new moving.  Well, after these eclipses, and into the fall, we will start to experience forward movement again. Even more opportunities will appear, projects will unfold, plans will work out, more clients or customers will appear and we will see quicker movement in our soul journeys in the way we have chosen to emit our soul gifts and authenticity to the world.

This is a very exciting time for your inner Light to shine, for Love to be the your Truth and for us to become Harmony in our world.  If you have been following my blog and other social media, you know I have been discussing awakening, transforming through healing the past, and becoming more enlightened.  If you have been doing the work, these eclipses will work with you to further your intentions.  They will bring up more to your consciousness (awakening) to release and transform, so you can heal even deeper, allowing you to recognize and Shine even more of your Truth.

Read about the upcoming eclipses and how you can work with them to help you in my article written for The Wellness Universe below.

May you have an enlightening eclipse season and summer!

https://blog.thewellnessuniverse.com/the-eclipses-are-coming-again/?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=socialnetwork

Truth of Love & June Special!

Slide1

Illuminate the Truth of Love.

We are in a new era, a new space and a new way of Being. The energies we have been given to integrate are about Truth through Love. Already this year, we’ve had two blue moons, two eclipses, a potent spring equinox, plus intense solar flares and planetary alignments increasing our need to heal and release to return to harmony, balance, Light and Love.  This is a Master 11 year, bringing in more Divine energies, balance and light portals. We have three more eclipses coming this year to shake things up even further. Plus, Saturn is in it’s home sign of Capricorn. I have written about the Master 11 year, plus the eclipses we’ve had so far in these two articles on The Wellness Universe:

http://blog.thewellnessuniverse.com/2018-master-number-11-year/

http://blog.thewellnessuniverse.com/super-blue-moon-eclipse-january-31-2018/

Stay tuned for my article on the next three eclipses coming up towards the end of May, as they occur June, July & August!

It’s a powerful year of illuminating the Truth of Love through awakening and seeking Truth, connecting to the Divine Love within and around us all, while also becoming your Truth and your authentic self, following your Divine Soul Purpose. 

We are in need of more Love to counteract the opposite. Love must be the answer to everything and everyone. We are here to heal ourselves, illuminate our inner truth to shine our Love. Our authentic soul selves are wanting to break through our barriers, leap over obstacles and wash away anything that is not Love & Light. It is time to Awaken our inner Truth, to fuel the world with Love and all it encompasses. Kindness, compassion, understanding, unity, gentleness, joy, peace, harmony and balance. It is time to “Become Soulfully Empowered™”, to empower ourselves, those around us and thus the world.

This year I have been working more on myself, as healing continues as long as we are living on more profound levels. I have been blessed with new clients. I have received more awareness and awakening to even deeper Universal Truths. I’ve spent time in meditation, and healing sessions. Through all of this, I continue to rise and increase my vibration. I help funnel out and transform the energies around me which are not of Love & Light. I am a balancer of injustices and energies bringing more harmony to my surroundings. I am learning, growing, transforming and becoming even more authentic. I am seeing layers of interconnectedness, understanding the intricacies and feeling the similarities of all types of beliefs. I AM being the Truth of Love.

Are you ready to Illuminate your Truth of Love? I’m available for 15-20 minute consultations to discuss how I can help you. Contact me here ~ goo.gl/5WBgc5 ~ I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

June Special!  Schedule one hour session in June for only $65!  (Normally $75 for an hour.) Or, schedule a half hour session for only $35 (normally $40). Sessions can be any services ~ Reiki, Akashic Records Reading, Tarot Card Reading or Intuitive Life Guidance. Contact me on the above link to schedule an appointment.  I look forward to helping you heal, uncover your Divine Truth of Love.

Self-Love

Self-Love is not Selfish.

slide1

Selfishness is not the same thing as Self-Love. You were warned not to be selfish when you were younger, like when you wouldn’t share your toys with others. Selfish is being concerned only with yourself and no one else. It’s ego-driven, as you attempt to gain material goods, use others for your own gain, and think you are far superior to others due to your talents, knowledge, actions and more, while looking down on others as “beneath you”. Selfishness is not considering or caring about the needs, thoughts, wishes, or emotions of others. It is being completely self-absorbed.  It is thinking your way is the only way. It is helping others only to receive something in return. It can take many forms, both blatant or subtle, which makes it important to be able to discern the truth to understand whether someone is of Love or hasn’t yet arrived into a state of Love.

At times we may feel selfish when we are exhausted, famished, angry or hurt, and we lash out, clam up or sink into ourselves. This is not true selfishness, but a sign we need self-love as our emotions are letting us know we need to address our own issue, go within, process, release and heal from the situation creating our emotional reaction. This helps us move forward in life, connecting to our inner selves, our higher selves and our heart center.

Self-Love is Self-Care, Self-Nuturing, Self-Compassion, Self-Kindness and more.

Self-Love is taking care of your needs to allow you to be whole and healthy. It’s loving yourself enough to be confident in your thoughts, words and actions, yet expressing openness, compassion and understanding for those of others. It is taking the time to eat healthy, exercise, meditate, and heal physically, mentally & emotionally, to be completely authentic. It is knowing when you need to rest, versus pushing into exhaustion for others. It is sharing your gifts with others to help them and yourself. It is knowing you create your own happiness, peace & Love.

Self-Love is being a kind, loving and caring human being to you, and all around you, including all of Nature. It is recognizing while you are an individual, unique soul, you are also part of the One, and what you do to another, is done to you. It is choosing positive actions, thoughts and words to help you and everyone around you. As thoughts, words and actions are all energy. We are all energy, sharing, giving and exchanging energy all the time. Choosing positive, love-filled energy to share and give is our purpose. Moving into a more love-centered world is our purpose. Our purpose includes unique gifts and talents all our own, yet it is still to share and give them with Love.

Self-Love is all about going back to Love, and living Love more and more. It is pausing to ask yourself what is the motivation behind my words, thoughts and actions? Ego or Love driven? If ego, it is time to discover why and heal from it, allowing the heart, or Love to lead you, versus the ego. It is being aware and open enough to listen more than speak, both to others and your higher self, your Divine Center, your soul. Self-Love is understanding and listening more to your truth, than that of others, although being wise enough to listen to others’ beliefs to see if it resonates with you in some way. It is seeking knowledge for growth, wisdom and transformation to “Awaken a more brilliant version of you™” to give and share of your true self, while having the discernment to know who else lives with Self-Love. As we connect more with others who are living in Love with Self-Love, we increase this energy to share with others who need it the most. We are creating a wave of wondrous Love, transforming ourselves, and showing others how to transform themselves.

I’d be honored to help you discover, deepen and shine your Self-Love through healing, transformation and awakening your authenticity to live in Love.

New Beginnings

slide1

New beginnings start with an open heart.

Many of us are wishing for new beginnings, yet we are still living yesterday’s beliefs. Or, we may be blocking ourselves in some way by not understanding or speaking our inner truth. Or perhaps we are not healing from the past. Or perhaps we aren’t living our authenticity which encompasses our inner truths, beliefs and opinions. We may be lying to ourselves in some way, thinking or feeling what others tell us to do. When this type of old energy is still within us, it closes off our heart. We repeat the same patterns, which become more intense each and every time. We can lose something or someone which we didn’t want to happen. A job, a career, a place to live or a myriad of other situations. Or perhaps a relationship has changed in some way, whether colleague, family or friend. It could be over so a new and different relationship more suited for you can come in with a new person or the same one. Perhaps the relationship is becoming stronger  and better, or is transitioning into something even more profound and wonderful. By learning the lessons and both parties working on themselves, forgiving themselves and healing to transform and awaken, it can bring in even more love & light.

Our heart is the center of our intuitiveness, the communication center for our higher selves and the basis of who we truly are at our inner core. By not removing the blockages, healing from past traumas or painful experiences and learning from them to live in a new way, those new beginnings will still be waiting on you. You may think you are receiving something or someone new, but it is most likely a similar experience which can be more difficult to deal with to push you into releasing and healing. Because it is important to remember the Law of Attraction…who you are, is what you attract; what you send out is what you attract. You also may still be living in fear, whether it is fear of love, fear of success, fear of trusting or a huge array of many others fears. This is why it is so important to heal yourself.

To fully release the old, we need to dig deep and relive what we may have buried or ignored. It may be difficult and painful, yet, if we keep it inside, it will reveal itself in a different manner, creating havoc in our lives. The manifestation of something old you no longer need may reveal itself in discomfort, dis-ease, imbalance in the body or mind or in a ton of different ways. Once you have recognized the blockages, worked through them and heal, your heart will open, causing you to be more in tune with your soul. And, with the open heart and better connection to your soul, new opportunities will flow allowing the brilliant new beginnings to happen as you awaken more and more. Trusting is a key ingredient. Trusting in your strength, resilience and motivation in your heart & soul. The one who you should trust most is you. Putting trust in another by sharing your fears, concerns, worries or hurts only strengthens the trust you have in you. And, if the other person holds you only in love, you have found a treasured relationship indeed. Otherwise, you have learned a powerful, wonderful lesson.

This past year, 2016 has been one of endings, helping us to prepare for the new 9 year cycle. 2016 adds up to “9” which represents endings.  You may have experienced some pretty intense endings this year in your life. The good news is that 2017 is a “1” year. A “1” year brings many new, fresh, positive opportunities, experiences and relationships. It brings fresh, as well as new energy to our existing lives, relationships and more. It helps us open our heart even more to help us on our true soul path, living our soul purpose as we attract what we most desire. It can help us open our heart to something me may have missed before, whether a job, person, home, or place. Endings are intended for new beginnings, both which can be with the same situation or person, or a completely different one. Be aware of how this past year has changed you or brought you change. Learn how it has created something different by releasing something or someone. Ponder the lessons you have learned or were meant to learn, and can now take to heart to heal you. Consider why and what you can do to transform yourself from the experience into a more brilliant version of you.  These “9” years are intended to open us up to more awareness of what we truly wish to have in our lives, and how to receive them by releasing the old either easily, or not so much.

This year is also ending with a Mercury Retrograde, which lasts until January 8, 2017. It is connecting the old year and the new year, allowing us to fully release the old, while moving into the new. Mercury Retrograde provides us the time to truly review our lives and to allow us to recognize and change what is needed within us and around us. Happening at the end of the year, increases this energy in intensity. It helps us release even more of what is holding us back from our true life purpose, true love, true happiness and true harmony. What we yearn for wishes to come to us, and the Universe and Spirit is helping us achieve it by bringing us the lessons and endings we need to allow our dreams to come true. By opening our hearts to this energy, it opens our hearts to acceptance, awareness and availability for both the past lessons, as well as, the incredible new experiences waiting for us to be ready.

Wait until Mercury Retrograde is over to begin your new plans, goals, intentions, wishes and lists.  I suggest January 11, 2017, which gives Mercury energy a few days to move forward again.  This is a powerful day of “1” energy.  January is the first month of the year, the 11th day is represented by double “1”, and the year is a “1” year. This is an excellent day to meditate, and connect with your intuition, your higher self, and soul.  Meditation will help you listen to your inner compass, your soul. Then on this day, you can begin to create your new year and new life, to manifest your true soul purpose by living your passions. You have the strength within you to share your gifts and talents with the world, whether they are music, sales, healing or other creative pursuits.

This past year has brought me the opportunity for intense healing, transition and transformation by awakening me to lessons I needed to learn. It has helped intensify my understanding of my unique gifts.  I have learned even more profoundly that I am my own person, and because I love to help others, I was given the chance to help myself through using many of the services I offer, plus others.  I worked with Reiki energy, meditations, the Akashic Records and more to help me heal from an intense period of my life. It has reinforced in me how much I love helping others help and heal themselves.  It’s why I started doing yoga nearly 17 years ago, why I became a Reiki Master nearly 5 years ago, and why I have always been very interested in health & wellness and alternative ways of healing, thinking and believing. It’s why I have chosen to be in the Spiritual Aspects of Healing through my services. If you are ready to move forward to heal yourself, and open your heart to new beginnings, I’d be honored to help you “Awaken a more brilliant version of you™” today and in the new year. I know I am looking forward to all the incredible new opportunities waiting for me in 2017. Are you ready?

To your open heart, new beginnings, new life and more…

Cheers, Happy New Year & Namaste!

Heather
