Breathing into Your Heart

Fear contracts the heart, closing it down. Breathing into the heart expands it, making space for new feelings and experiences. Begin by connecting with your heart. Feel it beating, you may notice its size or how it feels. Take about two minutes to consciously breathe into your heart, feeling it expand with each breath. Now check in again with your heart. How has your experience of your heart changed?


The Art of NOT Letting Go

Sometime ago I wrote an article called The Art of Letting Go. A short time after I was sitting at my computer and the words, the art of NOT letting go came to me. I jotted them down not knowing why. Some days later as I pondered their meaning and something important became clear to me.

I was a master at not letting go, as I believe so many of us are. We hold onto anger, resentment, jealousy and many other limiting emotions and reactive behaviors generated by our past experiences. Often we think we have dealt with these emotions only to find out much later they still reside within us. Clients are shocked to find emotions and memories of past events stored in their body without having any consciousness awareness of their existence. This is like someone flipping your switch as they say and you end responding completely out of proportion to the event or person. Later you ask yourself why did I react that way. The stored energetic pattern was activated by the other person’s actions or words and that triggered the old pattern or memory. Have you ever had a reaction in the present moment in which your response was based entirely on a similar event that happed from your past? More
