Heart + Self Healing

Self and heart healing

I came to self and heart healing almost a decade ago. Like many, it was a time in my life where I felt as if my heart had broken into a million pieces. Not yet recognising that rock bottom would be the place where a new, better version of me and embodiment of love would be created.

Maybe as you read this now you are in the midst of your own heartbreak. Experiencing sadness, pain, loss, resentment or anger and feeling as if there is no hope for you where matters of the heart are concerned. Whereas I won’t tell you how to think and feel, I can share with you some insight into heart and self-healing. Doing so, with the intention to inspire you to take those tentative steps towards self and heart healing, as I did 10 years ago.


HEART RESEARCH + THE ANCIENTS

Heart Healing meditation

The mind is given much kudos for being a driving force in supporting you to manifest your intentions into your life. With little regard given to the heart. In fact, being heart centred or focusing upon your heart is considered wishy-washy or irrelevant.

However, recent research has shown that the heart is effectively like the second brain. Holding within it much wisdom alongside the memories and feelings of yesteryear. Due to its strong electromagnetic field (5,000 times stronger than the brain), whatever you feel within your heart can be felt by other people several feet away.

It is this very idea of the heart as such a powerful organ of the body that has been echoed throughout time, namely by the Ancient Egyptians.

During funeral ceremonies, the heart would be the only organ not removed because it was revered as being the throne of wisdom, where thoughts and emotions resided.

As for the brain. Well, that was the only organ that would be removed because it was considered to have no real significance.

So, what does this have to do with heart healing and feeling better after experiencing heartache or pain?

When you think about love where do you commonly feel the expansion of energy?

In your heart.

When you split with an ex or pine for an ex-lover, where do you feel the tight and contracted energy?

In your heart.

So much of what is felt emanates from the heart. This is great when you feel good, happy, joyful and all loved up.

I mean think about the meaning that life takes on, all the synchronicity you experience and your ability to bounce back when the heart is expanded.

This is in contrast to the lack of clarity and victim thinking of “Why me?” Which is often followed up with that feeling of being stuck and unlucky in love.

From this simple explanation alone it becomes apparent that the energy emanating from your heart (based on your thoughts and emotions) has an impact on your energy field. Therefore an impact on what you invite into your energy and your life.

By clearing your heart of the energy of fear, lack, pain, anger, scarcity….. you release yourself from the burden of the past. In doing so, healing your heart and increasing the probability of aligning with your true soul-inspired intentions.

It is common that when heart healing is activated the connection between the Divinity and wisdom that lies within is amplified. A concept that has long since been echoed by mystics and spiritual teachers from different world religions. Each one believing that the soul, the Divine or the Buddha-like self resides within the chambers of the heart.

From my own personal practice of self and heart healing, I’ve noticed this to be true. Whilst also finding that my alignment increases when engaging my heart. In fact, on one occasion, I recall overriding the doubt of the mind by engaging from the heart and manifested a miracle healing in less than 24 hours.

ANGELIC REIKI

Angelic Reiki Healing with Chanel Marie

I’ve seen and personally experienced profound shifts from Angelic Reiki sessions. Especially as clients start to release that energy that has left them feeling heavy from within.

My own personal experience evoked memories from the past (and past lives), something that isn’t uncommon. However, rather than getting caught up and lost in the story of that memory, I found it brought understanding that had been missing. Thus, closure on a repetitive relationship and cycle, simply by observing, releasing and replacing with unconditional love.

ROSE QUARTZ

Rose Quartz is famed for being the love crystal. The Crystal that you pop into your bra, adorn yourself with or add to a crystal elixir when you want to attract love into your life. However, it’s way more powerful than that.

Vibrating at the frequency of unconditional love working with Rose Quartz will reveal, one by one, anything within or without which is not in alignment with its vibration. Therefore, making it an excellent crystal to work with when you know within that you are ready to dissolve your barriers to love.

Thankfully, the energy of Rose Quartz is gentle and soothing. So, although what is revealed might be a hard pill to swallow the soothing energy of Rose Quartz can support and guide you to refuel yourself with unconditional love.

Sunday Soul Note: You are the best spiritual tool you have

chanelmarie

You’re wondering if you’re using the right crystal to heal your broken heart. You’re wondering if you should be doing the burning ritual tonight or last night. You’re wondering why you keep seeing 1010 wherever you go. You’re wondering if you’re doing it.  Yet, if you are following the guidance that comes from within…….

You are doing it right! 

There are no wrong ways or right ways if you are following the guidance that comes within. No comparison required when rewriting or reconnecting with your soul story.

This is because the magic, power and beauty do not lie solely in the crystals, manifestation techniques or healing sessions.

The magic, power and beauty lies in You too.

Probably more than you could ever imagine.

Tools and practices, such as crystals, for example, are great for helping us heal, align, manifest or protect your energy. However, the real test will come in the absence of these tools. In the heat of the moment when there’s no time for yoga, meditation or a quick pull of your Oracle cards. In those moments you are left with just one resource. Just one beautiful gift:

You!

Therefore, the connection you have with your whole self is key.

Knowing the voice of your intuition versus the voice of fear. Being able to decipher the subtle clues that your body gives you in the moment. Knowing what your energy feels like so that you can recognise when what you’re feeling is not your own.

On my own path and through the readings I’ve given to women, I’ve learnt that all of what we experience, is helping us reconnect with our true selves, from the inside out.

Whereas the spiritual tools, sessions and practices are amazing if they are not supporting you in remembering all that comes from within you. Then what are they doing for you?

Cleansing Toolkit: Sage

Sage and the New Moon

Although, the New Moon is a time for setting new intentions, planning new projects and new beginnings I can definitely say that, in the run-up to this New Moon, I am finding that I have more than my fair share of negative energy to transmute and drive out of my physical, spiritual and emotional body.

From my conversations with other women, it would seem that I am not alone with this, as many of you have been experiencing stress, overwhelm, fatigue and sleepless nights, as the first New Moon of 2018 draws closer. All of this can create a feeling of misalignment and I, for one, try my best not to bring this energy to my altar space when writing or setting my New Moon intentions.

Therefore, in the days leading up to the New Moon or on the evening itself I will clear my own energy using Sage, alongside any other rituals and practices that I am guided to. In doing so, I am putting myself in the position where I am most likely to be infusing my New Moon intentions or wish list with positive energy.


Why Sage?

Sage has long since been my go-to tool for removing unwanted and stale energy that has been building up over time, or simply attached itself to me during the day. It’s also a sacred plant that has been used by many ancient and traditional civilizations who would use Sage in rituals and ceremonies in order to heal and purify energy.

What’s great about Sage is that it can be used to clear energy from yourself and your home, especially if you have moved into a new home and want to give it a deep energetic cleanse. It can also be used to cleanse unwanted energy from objects, such as your crystals or crystal jewellery. Essentially, Sage is the perfect addition to your spiritual beauty toolkit and will support you in nourishing your inner beauty too.


How to use Sage

  1. Hold the Sage stick in your hand and set your intention, eg: To clear away unwanted, negative energy from yourself and your space. Light one end of your Sage stick, allowing it to catch fire and burn for several seconds. Once the flame extinguishes gently blow on the lit end to fan the embers.
  2. Begin by clearing your own auric field. I suggest that you start at the top of your head and go down the front of your body, as if you are cutting through energy cords that have attached themselves to your chakras, and travel down to your feet. Continue by wafting the Sage smoke under your feet, down your arms etc.
  3. Move onto ‘Sage-ing’ your space, beginning at the door and going around the door frame.
  4. Work through the room paying attention to corners and other dark corners which is where energy can get trapped. As you do this visualise or say a mantra that supports you in holding the intention for “clearing out the negative, stale energy and restoring positive balance energy”.
  5. Finally, extinguish the Sage by safely snuffing it out in a fireproof container.

Alternatives to Sage

I love the smell of Sage yet there are times when the smell can be overwhelming so you may want to try these alternative herbs:

  • Frankincense: Connects you with Source energy, ease stress and anxiety, protection and cleansing.
