Understanding our Soul Contracts

I penned “Understanding our Soul Contracts” blog for The Wellness Universe, which is more information on understanding our soul purpose and learning lessons from soul contracts and connections. Akashic Records Readings are a wonderful way to determine if you have a soul contract with someone in your life, what the contract states, any past lives with this person and more. If you would like more information on a reading, please contact me at HeatherCLang@yahoo.com with “Akashic Records” in the subject line.

Relationship Help with Reiki

Slide1Heal past relationships to transform and awaken.

In our lives, we have many types of relationships.  We are always exchanging energies with each other in these relationships.  These energies create connections, or karmic bands, between us.  These bands are linked between our souls.  We carry them from our past relationships in this lifetime,  as well as, our past lives, into our now. Relationships with family, friends, co-workers and others.  The relationships may be helpful or they may be troubling and difficult. We are meant to learn from them, yet at times we are so caught up in the problems, and perceived faults of the other person, the relationship or ourselves, it is challenging for us to face them again, for fear of feeling the hurts and pains all over again. This can be particularly difficult with those we have believed have failed us in some way, or we have failed them, perhaps creating what we think may be irreversible issues within us.

Relationships being in the womb, with our biological mother, which creates a karmic band.  We also have one with our biological father, as his energy is within us as well. Over time, these bands can strengthen, change and/or create either good loving energy within us; issues, beliefs, opinions about ourselves; or very challenging hurts and pains. If these issues are not dealt with, they will  continue to follow us.  They may even show up as physical issues such as injuries, illness or dis-ease. Any promises, contracts and oaths with others also create karmic bands.  Some of these from the past and past lives could have been forced upon us, yet they are still there and can be interfering in some fashion with our current life. Karmic band energy work can help you heal and release any of these types of connections.

When the relationships are difficult, challenging and painful in some way, we may shy away from working on the issue we need to learn from it so we can heal within us.  We may ignore it. We may think we are strong, and carry them, thinking we deserve it somehow and are not worthy of healthy relationships or something else.  This is all extra baggage we truly do not need to cart around anymore. Carrying these burdens is not what our souls came here to do. They came here to learn, heal and transform from all past issues in this lifetime and prior ones. We are meant to experience unconditional Love, Joy, Harmony and more. Our souls have chosen the family we were born into, who we interact with and even when and where we are born.  Why?  Because that’s where the lessons reside for us.

By using Reiki and Karmic Band Energy work, we can face any fears, issues, problems, pains and hurts in a safe space.  We can deal with it once and for all. We may still remember the lesson or pain, yet, we will no longer need to feel it, hide from it or fear it.  It will no longer interfere in our lives, removing barriers to allow more abundance to flow in these areas which have been previously affected. Our emotions will be much better balanced if we think about the situation.  Reiki masters can intend, or “send” energy into these karmic bands for a variety of reasons, including helping you heal the issue.  The energy being sent can soften or lesson the emotions so they may not be as dramatic or traumatic for you to recall. At times, bands are removed while the energy keeps you from feeling it at all, or to help block the reason completely, if it may just be too much for you to handle. The energy always knows what is best, and the Reiki Master reads the energy.  The energy is from the very wise and all-knowing Divine. If the band has been balanced, when the person is ready, the karmic band can even be completely removed. Again, we will still have the memory of it, but it will no longer affect us in our current life or in our future  by causing emotional dis-stress, pain and other problems as we continue on our life journeys. It actually releases us to experience beautiful and positive new situations, people and places without the issue or fear.

One client I had was experiencing self-confidence issues which stemmed from childhood. This issue stemmed from the karmic band between her and her mother. She felt she needed to be thin and wear make-up to be pretty.  This idea was ingrained in her head from her mother.  Her mother was constantly talking about her looks and society doesn’t make this concept any easier. Her mother would not say she didn’t look good when she didn’t have make-up on, or her hair done or if she gained some weight. But, the way the mother always talked about having to be thin, and that she looked prettier with make-up and with certain clothes and at a certain weight caused an issue in a karmic band between them.  The client thought she needed to get her mother’s approval, as well as, society’s and if she didn’t take care of her outer self, no one would love her.  It created self-confidence, respect and love problems with this person. This person would work out all the time, didn’t eat enough, so was lacking in proper nutrition, and felt like she wasn’t worthy of good, loving relationships. She bounced around from one relationship to another, looking for approval and love. Using Reiki energy, talking it out, and working on the karmic band released this negative emotional attachment.  We did a few sessions simply for this as it was deeply rooted.  This issue was a band she carried not only from this lifetime, but had been one she still had from previous ones because of her past life ties to her mothers and other people.  She chose this lifetime to heal it with this mother. She is now much happier with herself, with self-love and self-acceptance, creating more loving and beautiful relationships.

Remember, many of us are afraid of facing these issues within ourselves. However, I am here to attest, after deep, intensive work this year, the fears are worse that we can imagine. And, the healing we can obtain to transform ourselves from these karmic band issues, lessons and pains are well worth it. I feel lighter and even happier than I have been (and most people who know me personally think I’m one of the happiest people they have ever met before I did even more deep and profound inner work this year!).  I am even more open, aware, and self-confident. I love myself even more. We are not born perfect, because we are human, and in each lifetime as human, we pick up karma.  Thus, karmic band work. If you are ready, it is truly transformative, and I’d be honored to assist you. It can be done in person, via phone or Skype.  Being able to do it live allows the intuitive life coaching aspect, as well, where you can talk it out to help yourself heal further to transform and “Awaken a more brilliant version of you™”.

Character Foundation

Your true character is more important than other’s perceptions, as it is the strength of your foundation. Slide1

Like a suspension bridge, our outer appearance is what others see, and it depends on the perspective. Driving across the bridge, you do not see the posts into the ground, you only see before you and above you. Looking at the bridge from afar, you see the posts moving into the ground, yet you are not necessarily aware of how deep the foundation is rooted.

It is the same with us. Others see our outward appearance, both what we choose to show the world, and what they choose to see. What others choose to see is based on their experiences, opinions and beliefs, which may not be in line with who we truly are at our core. If we choose to accept other people’s opinions and beliefs about us it can weaken our foundation. They may not be fully in tune with their own spirituality and inner souls, and without us showing our true character, it is more difficult for them to understand others.

To strengthen our foundation, our inner core, we must root down deep into our being, just like the posts of the suspension bridge, to both understand and support our beliefs & opinions, thus allowing our foundation to rise up to greater heights.  Rising up with our true nature allows our outer appearance to be supported by our true character.  Our foundation is now the strength of our entire structure because we are living our true nature, our true character.

May you use your inner foundation to strengthen your perception of yourself as well as those around you.

Mindfulness & Enlightenment

Slide1There is a recurring theme I notice in life.  It’s that we are not mindful as we go through our days. Once,  while leading one of my yoga classes, we were doing Moon Salutations for the New Moon. I like to mix things up after a few rounds, and sometimes each round for both focus and mindfulness. This particular class had three individuals who have done this flow with me many times. What occurred, was all three of them anticipated a pose I included in the last round, and none of them heard me lead them into a different pose at that point. All three of them are in Crescent Moon pose, and I’m in Warrior II pose. I joked that their Warriors all needed some work…and all three of them looked at me at the same time. They realized what they had done. They weren’t paying attention and being in the moment. This was an “Aha” moment. This is just one incident, but many occur to each of us on a daily basis.

Mindfulness allows us to focus on ourselves and can help us reach for enlightenment.

Mindfulness is being in your present moment without anticipating what is coming next. It’s allowing what comes next to flow to you. So many people tend to go through the motions without being attentive to the situation. Driving is a perfect example. While driving, many are paying more attention to distractions such as the radio, the cell phone, other car occupants, or thinking about their “to-do” list. Yet, driving requires mindfulness. If you aren’t paying attention to driving, you might hit another car, or you might run a stop sign, or worse, hurt yourself or someone else.  Another example is when we are rushing through a chore or are running late, and we aren’t paying attention to what we are doing, and we either fall down, run into something or harm ourselves in some other way.  It’s important to slow down, breathe and be very aware of what you are doing to avoid causing harm, but also to learn something new.

Mindfulness is many things, as well. It’s being attentive to each moment, action, feeling and thought. It’s ensuring you know exactly what is happening around you and within you, without judging or comparing. It’s being completely aware and focused in the present moment without worrying about the future or repeating your past. Mindfulness is not allowing yourself to be distracted by outside forces, people, events or situations. Mindfulness allows you to focus solely on you and the purpose at hand. Mindfulness can then lead to enlightenment as you recognize what is happening within you. You can then be aware of a feeling that crops up repeatedly or a situation and you can attend to it. I’ve recently recognized through a healing session I had with my healing friends that I have hips which are rounded in. I’ve been to chiropractors and not one ever mentioned this to me. Perhaps I wasn’t ready for that message yet.  But, the hips have been causing my lower back tightness, and this area, front & back, is the sacral chakra. The message for me was very profound physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I learned  something that I didn’t realize I was still carrying around for the past two decades or so…from previous lifetimes! Being mindful of my hips, and connecting this to the message has allowed me to release some cords for healing….mind, body & soul…very enlightening.

May you practice mindfulness in your life and reach for your enlightened self!

Namaste! Espavo!

Ultimate Freedom

Do you feel your life is out of your control? Perhaps all the time? Perhaps only some of the time? When we feel this way, our stress levels tend to increase and we can become anxious, or upset. These feelings do not bring us peace, nor do they provide us with a feeling of freedom.Slide1

When we learn how to take control of our own lives, we will know true freedom. 

Taking control of our own lives includes being aware of who or what is controlling you, and how it’s happening. Perhaps why it’s happening. For instance, if you are always available when your manager needs something from you, even though you must get something done for you, you are allowing it to happen. You are giving your control away and your power. Perhaps you believe if you are not always available, the manager will write you up or fire you. A simple question can begin to help you: “Do you need it right now, or can we schedule a time to discuss it?” This can also lead to a small conversation, however, you are taking control simply by asking it. Sometimes you will get a “no” and sometimes a “yes”. It’s practicing compromise.

Another way to help take control of your life is cultivating more acceptance of the current circumstance you find yourself in and not allowing your feelings to be controlled by another. Acceptance does not require you to “like” it. It merely requires you to accept it. When you are able to accept everything in your life…whether it is something you like or dislike, peace ensues. And, again, you feel freer, as you are not bogged down with anger or worry. It’s freeing to feel the acceptance and through this feeling, you can take control. You realize your own power in the situation. You can take control of how you feel, how you think and how you act or react. This also brings a sense of freedom.

When we allow others to control us, we are giving our power away. We feel “powerless” to do what we want and need to do. The only person you are responsible for is you. You have the power to control you. By continually using the question and cultivating acceptance of any answer, freedom follows. These concepts can be applied to any person or situation in your life. As you work them into all facets of your life, the way you feel will begin to change. You will feel more in control as you bring back your power. Then, you will know true freedom.

May you take back your power and discover ultimate freedom!

Namaste!  Espavo!

Peaceful determination

Slide1Many of us are constantly moving to get everything done, with very little time to ourselves.  We feel hurried, frenzied, stressed and ultimately exhausted from all the things we need to do.  This is a learned behavior handed down by generations before us.  At home and at work, we have been taught that those who do “the most” or “work longer” somehow are “better” than those who do not do the same thing. We have essentially learned we are not “good enough” if we aren’t exhausting ourselves in accomplishing…well what?  What exactly are we supposed to be accomplishing according to everyone else? What are others telling us that we must do to achieve some status?  More importantly, how do we feel about it?  How do we know how we feel about it when we are constantly on the go?  Perhaps it’s time to slow down with no excuses or explanations.  The energy of what society, family, work and friends tell us we must do is very agitating type of energy.  It’s time to get grounded.  It’s time to nearly stop, find the balance you need and recalibrate your life.  That’s right…YOUR Life.  What do you feel would be better for you?  What’s your heart’s desire?  What brings you peace?

Slow down, stay grounded and continue to walk your path with peaceful determination.

Everything does not have to get done.  It’s time to determine what’s most important to you.  Slowing down allows us to listen to our heart, hear our desires and move towards them. Slowing down helps to ground us.  Grounding brings us more peace.  The energy calms down. This helps us to see more clearly. The path lights up.  We recognize the path and with determination, can move forward towards our dreams. We are then able to open up to our own understanding & wisdom. We gain emotional strength to do what we truly wish to do. Growing up in basically a middle class family, I did what I was taught.  Go to school, work, go to college, work. I followed the path I was told would make me prosperous.  And one day I began yoga, and found my inner thoughts. I grounded, I became more balanced, more thoughtful.  I began questioning the status quo.  I slowed way down. I found my peace. I found my inner truth. I became a Reiki Master, which opened up channels in me I didn’t know I had always had. I became more intuitive, more psychic and understood myself better. During this time, I met some of the wonderful people in my life I now call friends who helped me.  Some of us formed a group where we heal each other, support each other, and are working towards our own special healing.  Our first healing clinic is tomorrow. We are so excited!  We have all worked towards slowing down, staying grounded, and walking our path with determination, peacefully and joyfully! Do I fall back once in awhile?  Sure…for we do still have 3D energies at play (which I won’t go into now…but if you are interested, please let me know and I’ll write about it) as we move towards a new 5D energy which is loving, joyful and brilliant!  We knew we had to do this, and we’ve been working towards it with complete and total trust in our path. You, too, can do it! Let go of what you no longer want, detach from it, and walk your path! Slowly at first, and then watch how it all manifests exactly how it’s meant to for you.

May you slow down, ground, and walk your path!

Namaste!

Expect & Accept the Very Best

During the past few weeks it was become increasingly clear to me to practice positive thinking more and more.  (And I apologize for not being able to blog every week as I have had time to do before as these past weeks were very busy in many different aspects.)  It is important to only accept the very best outcome for you and others.  Does this mean the outcome might not be what you wanted?  Perhaps. But it will be the best outcome for our learning experiences and for our higher good at that time.  BUT we still need to hold the thought that we are expecting the very best outcome…the biggest dream and more, not limiting ourselves in any fashion.

When accepting only the very best for ourselves, the universe will help us manifest something beyond our wildest dreams.Slide1

When we compromise, or even worry about a less than acceptable outcome, it keeps our true heart’s desires from manifesting.  It’s important to remember, the Law of Attraction does not label our thoughts, feelings or actions/reactions as “good” for us or “bad” for us.  It just attracts. Like attracts like.  What are you attracting with your thoughts?  I know I’ve written about this before, but it’s even more important in this highly energetic time to think only thoughts which will bring us to the blessings and miracles we have been hoping for, praying for and wishing for.  Compromise means coming making concessions to come to an agreeable settlement.  This works in some situations, like business scenarios, but in our own lives, why are we compromising for less than we deserve?  Compromise also means accepting something that is less than desirable.  Again, why do we do this to ourselves?

The energies of this month have been difficult, but the challenge to us was to continue focusing on what we want and what we deserve in our life.  We all deserve abundance, prosperity, love, security, safety, kindness, compassion, etc.  We must accept only what is best for us and reject what is not.  Thinking and accepting what is in our now helps with our peace of mind.  I have also spoken of this in the past.  Remember, accepting what IS in the Now, is about accepting the lesson of the  situation which is for our higher good, even if we think the situation is not something we should be dealing with at this time.  Look at the situation, and figure out for you how to turn it back into a positive situation, which will then lead you to accepting only the best outcome of that situation, while in the situation.  For instance, if you have been hurt by an imbalance, accept only that you will heal 100%.  If you are stretching your dollars, accept that the dollars will stretch and multiply.  This is the only perfect outcome for you.  It’s having the faith and belief you will always have everything you need AND more.

I had a breakfast meeting just this past week with someone I’ve known for quite some time.  We were discussing many things, but one topic in particular about dreaming big when thinking about where you want to be in your life was very notable. This person said to me he would ask employees “where do you want to be in 5 years…take your time, as you don’t have to tell me.”  The other person would then tell him after thinking for some time where they wanted to be.  He said he would tell them “forget that now…think BIGGER.”  In essence, expand your dreams and wishes!  When we only accept the very best for us, without limiting our own beliefs about what that will be is when the universe blesses you with more than you ever could have dreamed possible.  It’s about accepting what you have, AND AT THE SAME TIME, only accepting the very best which is waiting to be delivered to you once your worry and compromising stops about the “opposite” outcome.

May you only expect and accept the very best…and MORE!

Namaste!

Transformation Journey

With each new moon, the theme of transformation presents itself. The moon appears to transform each month as it waxes and wanes. The new moon energies can be used to bring newness into your life, but first we must make room for those energies by facing our old ideas, thought patterns and mindsets and allow them to die off.Slide1
The journey towards transformation is both challenging and incredibly fulfilling. 
Transformation can lead to ascension by facing our biggest fears, questioning what we have known to be true and allowing our unconscious to surface. The unconscious can hold both the reasons behind our biggest fears AND our own inner truth…what we truly know to be true. Connecting into this unconscious mind is a way of contacting your higher self. Our higher selves are part of the One Consciousness of Divine Love. It’s where all knowledge and wisdom is stored and can be accessed. Fears can be holding you back from the abundance the universe is working to deliver to you. For instance, do you fear learning new things because someone told you “you can’t do that”. If you did learn it, you can do it! Perhaps you have feelings of being unworthy of success; or fears of not having “enough” to pay your bills; or worries you aren’t as good at something as someone else. All of these hold you back from your true potential. Repeat after me: “I AM WORTHY. I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH. I AM MORE THAN GOOD ENOUGH.” You are unique and here for a reason, being both ALL and ONE of ALL is how the universe works, as we are all Divine Light, and yet we are all separate souls working together to form a better world. Knowing this, we must learn to not allow society to dictate our beliefs, nor our ways. We must learn for ourselves what is right for each of us. Anything we choose to do will be different because we are unique and will be doing it in our unique way. And this is what ascending and connecting to your Higher Self is all about.Doing something beyond our comfort zone is scary in and of itself. Yet, when we let the old programmed ideas fall away and die off, we can be reborn wiser and stronger. The old ways, even though they no longer serve us, feel comfortable. It can be difficult to let go of what we have always known and be different than how society continues to function, yet the more we break off from the mainstream thought processes, the more we can learn and grow…and thus ascend. Ascension in this aspect means growing past all the fears, raising your vibration by thinking only in a positive manner, and helping society see past the illusions. Ascension is a messy and destructive process as we transform ourselves from what we were into what we actually are. It’s advancing our souls in this lifetime. Seeing past these illusions created by others to deal with chaos helps us see the Light, the Truth and the Love in which we truly dwell. The more we realize our own ideas, beliefs and ways, the more fulfilling our lives can be. We are happier and more at peace. We become less concerned with what others think of us and more interested in how we can continue to help others through our own examples, how we can continue to transform and ascend, and how we can continue to rise our vibrations.
May you face your fears, transform your thoughts and ascend to your true self!
Namaste!
Heather
