Balancing Brain and Heart

We have recently felt rather bombarded with life. So many deaths, so much disappointment, so many challenges. It just goes on and on.

These hard hitting situations make it hard to stay positive and to stay focused on the blessings and miracles all around us in spite of it all. We have managed so far to stay in in a place of gratitude, but it is not without effort. And it is doubly hard when illness occurs, when one is fighting just to move through that sort of challenge. All of these things sure do bring humility to the fore, especially as we age. 

Regardless, these are the times we all seem to be living through. I thoroughly believe we are going through something on a higher level than just our own lives, and that higher level affects our personal experiences. I believe we are going through a cleansing of sorts, and definitely a battle between light and dark forces. 

It is easy to loose our focus, or even our hearts during challenges that most of us are going through. I for one find I have to constantly move from my brain back down into my heart where I can remain centered and focused.

Living too much up in my head leads me to places that don’t support me and I spend endless hours circling around in that gray matter. But when I take that longest journey, from the brain back into my heart, I find myself relax, I find I can feel supported, I find my center and balance. 

How do you find your way back to your heart? Do you use your breath, meditation, prayer, or simply a shift in your intention? Do you find it, like I do, to be “the longest journey”?

It is becoming easier to negotiate this journey and thankfully we none of us need any baggage for it, no updated passport needed, no boarding pass…..we can simply drop down into it. 

My wish for you on this beautiful May morning is that this longest journey become a short one for you, and that you find ways to remain in your heart so that life remains joy-filled, peace-filled, and very manageable! Blessings on your journey!

Wooden Hearts

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

The color of miracle to me is Purple. Purple is all about transmutation, changing from one state into another. It is also the color of meditation and being in your spiritual body. The color of the breath is blue. Breath can help us move into the present moment from a mind that is so busy talking to us that it is disruptive. Try these color sprays to bring you to the place you seek. Email me for help in choosing just the right one for your personal situation.
