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.

Namaste! ❤ ~ Heather

Awaken

slide1

Awaken with openness and awareness.

Awakening involves being open to all experiences, beliefs, ideas and opinions with awareness of the self and the world. Awakening is taking the time to discover the underlying truths not being spoken or broadcast and how they affect you and the world at large. It is paying attention to the subtle clues around you, bringing awareness to what is truly happening versus what you are being told is happening by “experts”. Awakening is also bringing this new information into your Being which creates a different understanding of life. This helps in strengthening your intuitive abilities, which will create more openness of the heart and soul, further strengthening this intuition. And, the more awakened you become, strengthening your intuitive abilities, the more wisdom you gain, and the more enlightened you become. For instance, many are awakening to the possibilities of natural, organic methods of health & wellness versus the current healthcare system. I, for one, have this year discovered the power of essential oils, and would love to share what I’ve learned with you!

Many other ways exists to help us return to a state of balance and wellness, such as yoga, chiropractic, intuitive life guidance and Energy Healing, like Reiki Energy, and more that can help you heal in mind, body & soul. I have seen powerful changes in people who are working on healing themselves through many of these methods and some of those who are my Reiki clients.This includes myself, as I have used and still use yoga, Reiki, meditation, self-help books, Akashic Record readings, life guidance, chiropractic, dietary methods and more. All of this helped immensely over the past 10-13 years, but especially over this past year, since as long as we are alive, we are learning, healing, growing and transforming. The more healing we do, we reveal other layers of healing. For instance, I thought I was healed from the issues within a relationship nearly 13 years ago. I simply buried them. This year, I was able to uncover them and understand the type of behaviors which led me to repeating similar relationships and patterns to help heal and transform myself.

(Learn about Reiki here ~ goo.gl/9IizXn & Learn about Akashic Record readings here ~goo.gl/shLXP3 )

People are also awakening to how food truly affects our health, and which foods to avoid. Communities are coming together to promote Oneness, sharing their gifts and talents while having a community organic farm. More and more people are recognizing a “rich” lifestyle which has been promoted, marketed and glorified is not “rich” at all. This lifestyle and the marketing promotes happiness through owning another item which we do not necessarily need. We are awakening to the belief happiness comes from within our own souls, not from objects. We are the source of our own happiness.

Awareness is spreading of how we are One with Nature, and how Mother Earth’s health is now affecting Humanity. This information stems from those who are providing information in non-mainstream media channels. These are the Light Bearers, Light Warriors and Light Bringers. We are all of the Light, and we are being reminded of this and how we are all a part of this world and anything and everything we do affects everything, everyone and our ultimate Human home, Mother Nature. It brings us together, erasing race, color, creed and borders. It helps rid us of judgements, comparisons and criticisms. It brings in compassion, understanding, harmony and pure love. This pure love is the enlightenment of the body and the spirit. Awareness of what is not working in today’s world and within ourselves and working on transforming ourselves to change the world.

Becoming more spiritual in our outlooks is enlightenment. More and more people are looking at “spirituality” and alternate means of finding it within themselves. It is knowing, trusting and believing that working with the flow of Divine timing and order will allow the best outcomes to manifest, creating our heaven on earth. It is time for more to become awakened and enlightened for our present moments. We are Human Beings of the Light in the Now, and we need to be more aware of how our Now affects many other Nows yet to come through awakening, openness and awareness leading us into more enlightenment.

To begin to become more awakened, it is time to question all your beliefs and why you have them. It is time to dive deep within yourself and recognize what is holding you back to heal past hurts, worries and barriers. It is time to recognize you are part of the change, simply by working on healing and transforming yourself. It is time to stop doing things and start being your authentic self to help you manifest your dream life through living your passions. It is time to understand there is no lack, only infinite abundance and prosperity for all.  Some see the world as a positive place and others see it as a negative place…it is the same world. It is time to change your perceptions of life, remembering we all live in the same world, together, each unique soul expressions of the same Brilliant Divine Spirit.

It is time to awaken your most brilliant self.

Namaste!

September: The month to Release

I am honored to have written this blog especially for The Wellness Universe!

Slide1

Astrologically, energetically and numerology wise, this September is THE month for releasing the old resentments, anger, hurts, pains, jealousies and more.

Next year, we move into a One year, and the number one is all about beginnings. However, without releasing the old and healing ourselves from it, we will remain in the old.

True Self Love

I’m honored to be featured today on The Wellness Universe with my blog!

“We need to deeply understand and accept ourselves to obtain true Self Love and to experience True Love with others.

How do we do this? One way is to release old pains and resentments from any type of past relationships, while focusing on why you hold the pain. Realize at the time of the relationship, the other person may not have been in a space of being able to express real love, whether a parent, significant other, friend or child. Or perhaps you weren’t in the proper space at that time. Understand both you and the other person may not have been connected deeply with your souls and maybe have not fully experienced true self-love yet. The important lesson is what you have learned from the relationship about yourself and then what actions you take to heal yourself…..”

Unleash your Power

Slide1I know I’m not the only one who has been mesmerized by the animated film, “Frozen”, nor the only one who has written about it. (For some reason, it hit me that I needed to write about it now, so here it is!)  So many wonderful songs, yet in particular, I adore the song Elsa sings when she escapes into the mountains to set herself free, “Let it go.”  This incredible story has captured so many for many different reasons.  However, the theme is about your inner gifts, talents & power. The “magic” Elsa has was hidden by fears from those around her, and then she adopted the fears, being afraid of hurting anyone.  She needed to be the perfect girl her parents thought she needed to be. When her biggest fears are realized, she escapes and stays hidden, although the timing of the song “Let it go” is perfect.  She is coming into an understanding of herself, yet is still struggling, as we all do, as we accept ourselves and learn our own hidden treasures.  And, yes they are treasures to be revealed, not hidden.  For like, Elsa, when she fully understands what her gifts are meant to do and how to be fully in her gifts, she is transformed!  Love.  Love is the power that is part of all of us which will allow us to reveal our treasures, our gifts, our talents, our power…fully in all their glory.  No fears to be had, for Love is the cure to fear.  Yes, Love.

It’s time to unleash your power. What gifts are you hiding?  Why are you trying to be perfect? What has been programmed into you that is ready to be set free? What fears are hindering your progress?  Why?   Are you ready to “Let it go”?  If not, why?  If yes, what are you waiting for?  You are the only one who can own your power and allow yourself to do what you are truly destined to do with Love.  Love yourself and your gifts.  The gifts you are given were for a purpose in this lifetime.

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve come into my gifts over time, and didn’t think anyone would “listen” to me and my truths.  This is from past lifetimes, versus this one.  A learned behavior my soul carried from lifetime to lifetime.  In this one, I’m meant to unleash my power.  My truths. My gifts. My treasures.  From others, I’ve been told by quite a few my writing is helpful. Therefore, one of my talents is communication through the written word. I heard the messages I was being given.  So, I stopped hiding and started writing. Small notes, long notes and emails, and now this blog site where anyone who stumbles upon it can read my words if they so desire.  I’ve said to many over the past decade “I’m an Open Book”.  True…and another song in this delightful movie is “Love is an Open Door.”  This song has so many levels of meaning, it staggers my mind.  But again, it’s all about Love.  If you do not open your door, Love can’t come in.  Yes, you have inner Love, but by hiding, you will not experience it, as it is through sharing we experience our Love of self.  Gifts we give others, we receive several to many times over.  I share my beliefs, feelings, thoughts and more here and elsewhere, always with Love.  Love gives me the courage, strength, understanding & wisdom to share my inner truths.  These are my shining treasures I now choose to share, not being concerned about what others think.  For, this is my path…that is their path.  Perhaps the paths shall meet, cross or merge for a time or more, but I need to be concerned about my path for my soul’s journey. Those who resonant with me and like my path will find one similar and I’m always willing to help & guide those who wish to be helped.  That is another way I’ve unleashed my power.  I’m meant to help others, to help others heal and to help others unleash their inner truths, gifts and power.  Therefore, I’m not fearful of showing my power. If you want help answering the questions above and unleashing your power with Love, Understanding & Kindness, contact me at heatherclang@yahoo.com, or find me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/NamasteRaysNews.Sunshine and send me a note there. Healing energy and guidance are within your reach.

May you unleash your power!

Espavo!  Namaste!

Be Fully Alive

Slide1

 

Viewing each day as a day to be fully alive in the moment you have allows you to experience every moment to truly Be.

The new moon today is a black moon, so named because it’s the second one in March.  And, it’s in Aries, which is the beginning of the astrological year. A new beginning.  A new day, a new moon and a new year.  For the second time this year, as the first was in January with the calendar new year.

So, today, let’s use this day to begin seeing every day as a new beginning to fully be alive.

If you choose to rest, be fully alive in resting.  If you choose to dance, be fully alive in dancing. If you choose to go for a walk, be fully alive in your walk.  Be fully alive in every experience to get the most out of your life.

How do we be fully alive?  To be fully alive, dive into your experience with gusto.  Be in the moment in mindfulness, being completely conscious of every feeling you have…each touch of a leaf or the wind, each sound you hear, each sight you see, each feeling which arises and each taste you may have.  Contemplate all these senses, and sit with (or walk with or lay with) how that makes you feel.  Then be aware of that energy radiating within you and imagine that energy radiating outward.  I love to do this with trees.  There is such a loving energy in trees.  Walk up to a tree, and touch it’s bark, the leaves and perhaps the roots.  Imagine loving energy pouring from your heart center to the tree.  Then be quiet, contemplate the love, and you will feel the love coming back from the tree.  Practice this with trees, flowers, animals, insects.  The more you practice this, the more mindful and conscious of all things you will be. This is using our senses to be fully alive.

When you have become accustomed to the basic senses and the feelings of this aliveness in you and around you, you can then begin to bring your intuitive senses into the mix. Start paying attention to the sounds and rhythms you feel or hear which aren’t noticeable from the main physical senses. Are you able to hear the music of nature and the universe?  What is it telling you?  Are you maybe able to see a bright light or shadow where there isn’t one seen with the naked eye? Are you sensing someone thinking of you only to run into them or receive a call from them? These are your intuitive senses become stronger, like the physical ones. You are becoming even more fully alive. You become aware of all the love & light around you and are able to send it out and feel it come back to you. Sending love & light to all, all will send love & light to you.  This is being fully alive. Every day…

Every day is a new beginning;

a time to learn and grown;

a day to discover and explore;

a day to laugh and dance;

a time to be quiet and listen;

a day to send out love & light;

a day to be fully alive.

Namaste!

Love Makes the Ride Worthwhile

Happy Valentine’s Day, Namaste Rays News Readers!

“Love isn’t what makes the world go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” – Franklin P. JonesSlide1

To have Love in your Heart, means to have Love in your World. Having Love in our lives is not having another person to love you. Having Love in your life is about Divine Love within you, which you allow to flow outwards. Having Love is a state of being. Having Love is how you treat yourself and others with Kindness and Compassion. Having Love is showing Love to others, and not simply saying how you feel. Having Love is knowing that no matter what happens to you, or what someone says to you, you are Love. You are not simply Loved. YOU ARE LOVE. When you accept You are Love, you are able to feel Love all the time. Love from within, Love within others, Love in Nature. Love spirals within you and surrounds you. When you think, feel and act from the Love within you, you are able to more thoroughly enjoy each and every aspect of your life. You become Love. You let your Love Be. You find Joy in the smallest of things. You find Hope where it may not have existed before for you. You have Faith you are Who you are meant to be and Where you are meant to be. When you recognize You are Love, more Love is attracted to you. And, when Love is all around, Life certainly is more worthwhile. Enjoy the ride!

May you allow your Love to Be.

Namaste!

Creating A New Life

It’s the first of a new month & new year, blessed with a new moon.  This moon in Capricorn is rather significant in that it’s the perfect time to start working on creating the foundation of what you want to create in your life.  It’s time to ask yourself “what is it I wish to create?”  Then start!Slide1

Do you wish to enter a new career?  Perhaps it’s time to look into schooling, loans and grants.  Perhaps you wish to spend more time with loved ones.  Ask yourself what you can do to create the time you wish.  Do you wish to create more love in your life? Perhaps you love people, and can offer your time, volunteering in assisted living  homes, hospitals or childcare. Spending time with people who do not necessarily have family or friends near them is a wondrous way to create more love in your life.  Many different ways exist to create a life you desire! Do you wish to create more financial flow into your life?  Ask yourself what you love to do, and work towards making that something you can do to create the financial flow!  For example, I work in an office, yet, am also a yoga teacher and a Reiki Master & Teacher.  This is what I’m working on creating…more classes, students & clients to both help myself & them.  I’m also a life coach, which I blend with the Reiki to help you find your blockages, release anything which needs to be released & work with you to heal yourself, mind, body & soul. This is how I’m working to create something more in my life…more financial flow, more health & wellness, more love.  So, work at it each and every day.

Every day presents its own energies to work towards something new.

Remember, even though it’s the beginning of a new month & new year, each and every day can be the one to start anew & fresh. We are all blessed with 24 hours to work at something we really wish to do…whatever it is. This influx of energy today is special, yet, every day is special and can be used to your benefit.  Feel the energies at play each day.  How do you do this?  Ask others how they are feeling. Look into astrology. Go within your own being and ask yourself how you feel.  Then, use that energy positively to continue to build the foundation you want, and as the days progress, you will find the rest of the life you wish being built…being created…and being lived!

May you use the energies of each day to build, create & live your new life!

Namaste!

Heather
