Most of us are waking up to the fact that our psychological/emotional and physical well-being are interconnected. We’ve also become aware that if we’re not living a life of meaning and purpose we’re indeed missing out on something.

So I ask?

“Does dis-ease manifest on a physical level when our soul has nowhere else to go?” Those who’ve read my book know that’s the message in Unlocking the Invisible Child: A Journey from Heartbreak to Bliss. I knew (my soul knew) very young that I wasn’t being seen the way I needed to be seen so I be-came dis-eased.

The belief that we can alter the chemistry of our cells by changing the way we emotionally feel about ourselves has been documented in the bestselling works of Louise Hay, Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., Gregg Braden, and Joe Dispenza, D.C., among others.

So let’s look at that. Ask yourself, “What doesn’t feel right? Am I living my heart desires?”  Do I know my life’s purpose? Am I living someone else’s dream and not mine?

In my practice (and all around me) I witness many people burdened with sadness/sorrow when it comes to a situation(s) in their lives. They share their physical aches and pains without a deeper understanding or awareness of the root cause. Sometimes it’s a major health issue that arises, bringing forth tremendous fear and confusion. Why now?  Is this physical manifestation a result of your authentic self feeling lost, unsure, conflicted? Is this indeed a “wake-up call” for you to take care of your heart and soul? I believe these issues rise to the surface for understanding and clearance.

We have the potential to rid ourselves of anything that no longer serves us, be it emotional/physical, by healing the residue left behind in our heart space. If we continue to hold onto old belief patterns and behaviors, they will just linger and block us from moving forward on our path.

Take a minute and identify what it is you really desire. See whether you can connect the dots between how you feel physically and how you feel emotionally/psychologically. Is there a connection? If so, great! Now you know it’s time to reach very deep into the source of the energetic dis-ease and release, release, release. That is what freedom looks like.

Our well-being has nothing to do with how we look on the outside.  Healing is a deep internal experience. Soul-deep.

This Hurtful Moment

I have a chapter titled This Magic Moment in my book. This blog is about This Hurtful Moment. I would like to share this moment with you. As some of you know I recently launched my book,Unlocking the Invisible Child: A Journey from Heartbreak to Bliss for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and some other sources. In all my new author excitement I visited amazon.com to see how the book looked.  That’s when I fell into momentary despair.

Along with the book’s description were two awful reviews by people who recently purchased the book. I was shocked! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect everyone to like the book, it was the fact that people were so hurtful and nasty. At that moment it became crystal clear that I had indeed put myself out there for anyone’s attack or insult.

My first response was to feel sad that people could be so hurtful! Interestingly I never got angry, just sad. I tried to figure out why and thought,  “OMG, what if no one likes this book after all.”

WOW! That was interesting since I’m so clear why I wrote this book with out one iota of doubt. I went there despite myself.

I am aware and recognize that certain people might get triggered from my truth and my conjecture, presented clearly and honestly in the text. I spent hours processing and inviting my spiritual friends to help me discern the deepest meaning to their actions.

And then I got it! I recognized that this was indeed a recapitulation of past events when I felt there was no space for me to respond. Let me explain. When I read the hurtful reviews I wanted to ask them why they felt that way, what was being stirred in them. I wanted the opportunity to dialogue with them and I couldn’t. That’s what came up for me. It wasn’t about the review-I’m a big girl. I know the book isn’t for everyone-only those who are open minded and willing to do a soul excavation as part of the deep healing process.

The hurtful moment was a reminder of when I was invisible. Once I acknowledged this, I dropped the sadness and more importantly, I stopped taking it personally. As an author, I chose to show up in all my vulnerability. I chose to be an open book to empower others to open and become visible. What others choose to do with it is about them, not me.

This is what I believe, “If you know yourself nothing can threaten the core of that knowing. The only place I reside is in complete transparency so others will KNOW me as I know me.”

 In retrospect, this hurtful moment was another grand opportunity for me to see what lies within, heal it, and stay aligned in my greater knowing. This is what we are responsible for if we’re going to continue to ride the waves of higher awareness and live from our heart center.

I encourage everyone to look for these opportunities and continue to ask yourselves,  “What am I to learn here?  What is being triggered, pulled up and out for my higher awareness?

That’s when “This Hurtful Moment” shifts to “This Magic Moment.”
