Top 3 Challenges to Living in Your Heart Center

Your heart is open to trying something new even when logic, fear, and reason hold you back.

In 2009, I asked my online community to share what they felt were their top 3 challenges to living in their heart center.

These were the 3 challenges that most people felt were an impediment:

  1. OTHER PEOPLE
  2. FEAR
  3. MY MIND

It’s now 9 years later, and I’m wondering how much you feel you might have changed in the last 9 years.

Have you made the effort to over come these challenges?

Which one is still holding you back the most?

In 2009, I invited three of my animal family members to share their wisdom.   They provided some rich insights and suggestions of how to make the shift to living in our hearts.

As I reviewed their messages yesterday, it occurred to me that you, too, might benefit from their wisdom, which is still relevant today.

The challenge of OTHER PEOPLE

ECHO

Other people are your mirrors. When you are around someone who is negative, you are giving away your power if you allow yourself to be negative, as well.

Become the observer instead. Notice their negativity and the response it evokes within you.

Then, focus on your own Heart. Go into your Heart. Feel the Divine Love that lives there.

When you feel fully connected to that love, send some to the person who was expressing a negative feeling. Don’t try to change anything about the person. Just send the person Love. Then, notice how this has changed how YOU feel.

VIOLET

Stop worrying about what others may think of you if you choose to live from your Heart. Instead, what will YOU think of you? If you have messages inside your head about being logical and if you have a habit of analyzing everything, then it’s time for you to choose another way to be.

The first step is noticing the negative messages inside. The next step is to rewrite these messages.

What messages would support your decision to live from your heart? Write a new message for yourself that is supportive and loving. Then repeat it to yourself every day. Place it into your Heart Center. Use the message every time you need to remind yourself that Heart Centered Living is how you want to live from now on.

SAKHARA

Every day, connect with the Divine Love that lives in your own Heart. Make this a daily practice. It’s really just this simple. BE the Love.

The Challenge of FEAR

ECHO

Love is the answer to Fear. When you are feeling other limiting emotions, fear is often right there, too. Many times, other emotions cover up and hide the fear, but the fear is there. Fear of rejection. Fear that you aren’t good enough or worthy enough. Humans have lots of fears that animals don’t have.

If you saw an animal who was afraid, what would you do? You might want to hold that animal in your arms or pet them and reassure them. You would express love to them.

The same thing works for you when you are afraid. Imagine taking your fear and surrounding it with love. Treat your fear as if it were a small, frightened animal. Hold it in your arms and love your fear. When you do this, your fear disappears.

 

VIOLET

When I’m afraid, I hide. But you can’t hide from yourself, can you? So you have to find a way to transform the fear. The Heart Center is the place to do that.

Go into your Heart when you are afraid or when you feel limiting emotions of any kind. There are many Heart Qualities that will help you. Forgiveness, gratitude, non-judgment, and love are just a few. Forgive yourself for being afraid. Be thankful for the change to take away the power that fear has over you. Stop judging yourself because you’re afraid. And then LOVE yourself. That’s most important.

 

SAKHARA

When I am faced with a challenge, I ground myself. I connect with the Earth because the Earth is so much larger than my physical body and I can easily feel her power, her strength, and her love. I invite that energy to come into my physical body and to surround me. When I feel connected, I am less afraid.

Mother Earth has a big heart and she supports all of us on the planet. Find your connection to the Mother and know that she is always there for you. Then, when you are afraid, you will know that you are not alone.

 

The Challenge of MY MIND

ECHO

So who’s the boss, there in your body? Your mind? Or you?

I’ve thought about this a lot because when I help Nedda in Animal Communication classes, this is one of the big obstacles that people face. Learning to quiet the mind is important for learning to receive telepathically. It is also important for learning to live from your Heart Center.

You are not your mind.

You are Consciousness.

You are the Observer, the one who knows how to BE.

Many animals know how to meditate. That’s a wonderful way to practice BEing instead of DOing.

DOing is what humans seem to prefer. But when you are DOing, your mind is often in control.

So find a way to practice BEing in the NOW moment. Then you will start to have control of your mind.

VIOLET

I know what Echo means about meditating. Cats do a lot of that. Our purr is a kind of mantra that we express outwardly – like saying “Om” for humans. But I like to be quiet inside and out when I meditate.

When you meditate, you can watch your mind do its dance. It twists this way and that like a bird caught in the wind. When you teach your mind to be quiet, there is great peace inside.

If you go into your Heart Center and mediate from there, you soon hear the peace of Divine Love. That’s the best way.

SAKHARA

I’m really good at being quiet inside. It’s my specialty. I do it by grounding myself and then going deep inside. I’m not sure how to tell you to get there, but maybe if you keep focusing on going inward, inward, inward, down, down, down, you will eventually reach that quiet space.

It helps to close your eyes. It helps to let your breathing get quiet, too.

So how are you doing with living in your Heart Center?  Have you made great strides?  Do you still have a ways to go?

Don’t be discouraged.  This is an important shift to make, and it takes time, dedication, and practice.  You’re sure to make it if you stay focused and set a daily intention to come each day from your heart.

Unity Consciousness Is Here Now.

February 25, 2018 by

It’s time to live in unity

with your Divine Self.

I Am Presence - your true self.

It’s time to shift your intentions.

The Ascension energies are now supporting you to shift your intentions to MERGE with your I Am Presence.

If you’ve been requesting ALIGNMENT with your soul or I Am Presence, this is a good thing.

But alignment implies separation.

In Unity Consciousness

there is no separation.

When you “align” two things, they remain separate from each other, even when working in harmony.

It is an optical illusion that railroad tracks merge in the distance.

Just like railroad tracks working together in alignment, it is only  an optical illusion that they merge in the distance.

Ascension is about merging.

Ascension is about oneness.

Ascension is about your True Self,

your I Am Presence

flowing into your physicality so that

you are no longer divided,

you  are no longer in conflict,

you are no longer caught up in duality.

 

Ascension is about creating

ONENESS WITHIN YOU.

For years I requested to be in alignment with my I Am Presence.

For years I requested to be in alignment with my Soul path, my Divine Service.

This alignment has taken place.

But I still think, feel, and act separately from my I Am.

Now I know that this is just the beginning.

Now I understand that it’s time for the next step.

Are you also ready for the next step?

The next step is to request complete merger.

Dear I Am Presence,

I now request full merger with you.

May any and all parts of me that vibrate at frequencies less than 5-D be cleansed, transmuted, transformed until all parts of me are ready for complete merger.

May all parts of me that already vibrate at higher frequencies fully merge and integrate with you now.

I AM my I Am Presence.

I AM my Soul’s purpose.

I AM my Soul Path.

I AM my Divine Service.

And so it is!

I Am Infinite Consciousness.

I Am Infinite Consciousness.

The energies supporting this next step are here.

The Divine Light Codes are already in your body, your auric field, your dna.

They are being activated daily.

You are changing.

Your physical body is changing.

Your energy bodies, which are your mind/consciousness are also changing.

It’s happening right now.

So if you feel ready, take the next conscious step.

You have free will.

If you didn’t want to be here to experience this Supreme Ascension experience with the physical body, you would no longer be alive on this planet.

Are you consciously participating?

Ascension is about being FULLY CONSCIOUS.

Ascension is about CONSCIOUSLY PARTICIPATING.

Ascension is about exercising your FREE WILL to merge with your Divine Self.

The process of Ascension is challenging in so many ways. 

Need some help?

I’m here to assist you with Energy Healing.

 

A New Year, A New You!

Your Transformation Is Happening Right Now.

You're Learning How to Use Your WIngs

In this time of spiritual transformation, you are being changed at the deepest levels of your being.

Your physical body is undergoing dramatic changes to support your spiritual awakening, mental clearings, and emotional releases.

Your mental and emotional bodies are showing you all that needs to be cleared, released, and healed.

YOUR MENTAL BODY.

Your mental body is asking to let go of old limiting beliefs and accept new expansive ones.

Your beliefs about who you are and how powerful you are must change to support your knowledge that YOU ARE THE DIVINE SELF HAVING A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE.

It’s really a very exciting time.

You get to create your new life in the New Earth of higher consciousness.

This takes commitment to daily activities which support your transformation and which help you adapt new beliefs and belief systems.

For example,

Limiting Belief:  I am a sinner and unworthy of Divine Forgiveness.

Expansive BeliefI am a good person and am worthy of all God’s Grace, Forgiveness, and Love.

There are many techniques that can assist you with this type of change.  The old belief can be extracted and the new one embedded and integrated.

YOUR EMOTIONAL BODY.

Your emotional body is asking to release all the dense, dark, heavy negativity that limits you.

You are invited to let go of hatred, anger, fear, jealousy, resentment, shame, revenge, and other old emotional patterns that may have served you well in the past, but which no longer serve you.

You are invited to OPEN YOUR HEART EACH AND EVERY DAY. to accept that YOU ARE LOVE, and to know that YOU ARE LOVABLE.

You are invited to know that YOU ARE WORTHY to receive infinite love each and every moment of each and every day.

You’re invited to forgive yourself and everyone else for the experiences of the past.

You’re invited to step out of judgment and look for the gifts of personal growth and enlightenment to blossom forth.

You’re invited to consciously step into the flow of abundance that is all around you and become part of that flow and allow that flow to become part of your life.

YOU HAVE A CHOICE.

What will you choose?

Will you choose consciously?

Will you choose to ignore these invitations?

That choice that will keep you feeling restricted, in pain, and struggling.

Whatever we resist persists.

Still, this is a choice, and all choices are to be honored.

You can made a different choice.

You can choose to consciously move into the flow of transformation.

You can choose to take steps to assist your letting go of the old and embracing the new way of living on Earth.

You can choose to create a new life for yourself and humanity by working with the higher frequencies now abundantly available.

When you make this choice, you will discover that your life flows with greater ease and more joy and comfort more of the time.

You will learn new ways to live that are more harmonious and give you greater satisfaction and a stronger sense of well-being.

So what will you choose?

Do animals feel pain and emotions?

The UK Parliament Says “No.”

Zebra Reflection in Water

What does this mirror within us?

This limiting belief that animals feel no pain or emotions still seems to linger on.

Those of us who are empathic and who are awake and aware KNOW  that animals feel pain just as we do, and that they experience emotions just as strongly and deeply as we do.

I received an email about this situation from someone who lives in the UK.  With her permission, I’m sharing our conversation.  She wrote:

Dear Nedda

Allow me to ask you:

How can I help to balance this incredible situation wisely: The UK Government has just voted that animals feel no pain or emotion. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/brexit-bill-latest-animal-sentience-cannot-feel-pain-emotion-vote-mps-agree-eu-withdrawal-bill-a8064676.html

I am beyond words and feel sick. As do many people.

(Also by the way in response for being called ‘human  animals’! Insult both to animals and to real humans. The latter species seems absent in our government anyway.)

I would like to move my soul out of the shock I am in right now, that something like this is possible in 2017 in this country.

What do the animals say that can help me to become helpful in this hellish time?

I am so tired, also, of hearing it will soon be over, as the new era has started. Having heard that for 20 + years … I do know there is truth in it, but right now the insanities around us feel very overwhelming.

Rays of Healing Light please for the extinction-zone species, the farm and the wild animals, all treated with such incredible ignorance and disrespect..

Thank you for hearing me and listening with me.

Looking forward to hear from you

Shulamith

I was so moved by the email that I felt I had to respond immediately.

So often I have felt the same way, i.e, that things are moving too slowly; that the horrors of abuse and mistreatment and ignorance about who the animals (and humans) truly are has gone on far too long.

I have wrestled with this myself, and have finally learned how I want to handle my feelings and the situation from the highest possible level of consciousness that I am ready to embrace.

So I wrote,

Dear Shulamith,

Thank you for your question.

The animals teach us the powers of love and forgiveness.  Those who cannot recognize feeling and intelligence in animals are also lacking in love for themselves.  They are disconnected from the natural world and do not understand that that is a major reason for their own person unhappiness.

So what can we do? 

We can pray for others to awaken, to open their hearts and feel all that there is to feel about themselves, and to love themselves fully.  We can encourage them to begin to fully appreciate this amazing Earth on which we live, to put aside technology and to focus on nature as a friend and partner instead of an enemy and object to be possessed and used. 

And most powerfully of all, we can forgive ourselves for any of the ways in which we may have contributed to the current malaise of cruelty and abuse on this planet – towards each other, towards animals, towards plants, and towards the Earth kingdoms and Nature.

We can also hold the light in our own hearts.  We can become totally forgiving and loving without judgment of ourselves and others.  Some may be choosing to remain in darkness believing there is no other way to live.  By focusing on changing ourselves we become a model for others, who will feel our energy as we move through the world.  This will help many awaken.

We can also send love to the entire animal kingdom daily, and help those whom we can help to be free and to heal from the accumulated pain of mistreatment.

The world is changing, but the changes are happening at grass-roots levels.  The media don’t talk about those changes because they don’t want us to know that they are occurring.  I and other Light Workers are seeing more and more evidence, but we have to go to alternative sources to discover these changes occurring.  There are plenty of these online if you search for them.

Namaste.

I hope that by sharing this conversation, it will remind you, too, that things are changing, if more slowly than we would like them to.

Yesterday morning, I turned on the radio and discovered a local station playing Arlo Guthrie singing the entire “Alice’s Restaurant.”  It brought tears to my eyes when Arlo says to the audience who was asked to sing along with his chorus “that was terrible.  You have to sing louder to end the war.”

The war he was talking about was the US action in Vietnam over 40 years ago.  Yes, that war did end, but the truth is that war never seems to end on this planet.  The powers that be keep it going, moving it from one location on the planet to another.

There always is an excuse for war.  We are always at war somewhere now because . . .

the external wars are a reflection of

the wars going on inside ourselves.

 

We are at war within ourselves,

with each other,

with the animals,

the plants,

and all the nature kingdoms.

This holiday season, I invite you to go inside and find a spot in your heart where is there no war going on at all.  A place of peace.

If you have difficulty finding that peaceful spot inside yourself, then that may be why there is no true or lasting peace on this planet.

The place of peace does exist inside you.

It’s up to you to find it, nurture it, and begin to live from there.

Changes must come from within, for whatever is within us is reflected back to us from the mirror that is the world outside.

We each have the responsibility to do what is necessary to create inner peace within ourselves.

Only then will the reflection in the outer world change.

You can’t change a reflection by changing the mirror.

 

Just How Grateful Can You Be?

November 8, 2017 by

This is the season for Gratitude.

"Thank you" written in sand.

It’s easy to be thankful, to feel gratitude, for things we receive that we recognize immediately as gifts.

Can you also be grateful for whatever comes into your life that appears in the form of a challenge?

Bunny peeking out of a hat.

Surprise!

A present that someone sends you, wrapped or unwrapped, that you get to open and go “Oooh” and “Aaah” easily evokes gratitude, especially when it’s unexpected and something you’ll enjoy.

It’s easy to be grateful for having a warm home, for having plenty of food, and loving companions, whether human or animal — if only you remember to appreciate the “little” things that are not so little at all.

The not-so-easy part are the gifts that come in unexpected forms with unexpected qualities that challenge you.

Such a gift may seem harsh or uncomfortable at first.

Such a gift may push your buttons, evoke fear or anxiety, anger, or even jealousy.

“What?”  you ask in astonishment.

“Was that truly a gift when so-and-so was rude to me?

Was it a gift when I discovered that my car wouldn’t start or the person who was supposed to meet me for dinner didn’t show up and didn’t call?

How can it be a gift when someone bullies me or gossips about me?”

We may not recognize it as a gift, at first, when we are treated badly or when something happens that pushes our buttons, .

We may be so caught up in our emotional response that all we can do in that moment is feel our denser emotions surging.

Only in retrospect may we recognize that the experience is an opportunity for gratitude.

Every experience is an opportunity for gratitude.

Stop and consider.   Somewhere inside each situation a gift awaits you.  And not only one gift, but perhaps even two or three . . . or more.

These are what I call Seeds of Equivalent Benefit.

These “seeds” are gifts that may need time to grow.  They may be hidden, at first, so tiny that your eyes cannot see them, but their presence is certain.

  • Perhaps the gift is to discover who your real friends are.
  • Perhaps the gift encourages you to find your inner courage and to step forward into that courage in a new and more powerful way.
  • Perhaps the gift is an opportunity for you to put aside something that you are strongly attached to in order to discover the freedom of non-attachment.
  • Perhaps the gift is to learn to trust that the Universe (God, Goddess, All That Is) is right there taking care of you, if only you open yourself to receive these blessings.

These are only a few of the true gifts of life’s challenges.

When we open our hearts through gratitude to receive them, we begin to find joy and peace within ourselves, as well as our inner strengths.

To discover hidden gifts, stop the chatter in your head about how terrible the situation is or was, and open yourself and your heart to gratitude.

When you say,

I Am Grateful  for the gifts I’m about to receive.

I trust that gifts hidden in this situation are about to appear.

Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

With the expression of gratitude you are watering and nourishing each Seed of Equivalent Benefit.

Gratitude shines the Light of your Soul upon each seed like the sun shines on a garden.

When you do that, the seeds immediately begin to sprout.

As long as you remain grateful for them and remain open to receiving them, they will appear in your life.

Some will manifest sooner than others, but all will bear fruit.

Once you receive them, you will find yourself naturally feeling even more gratitude.

Seeds of Equivalent Benefit flowering.

The POWER of GRATITUDE

is ENORMOUS!

 

So, just how grateful can you be?

This holiday season, give yourself the gift of gratitude.

Be grateful for all that has not yet appeared.

Be grateful for all the challenges, too.

Do not ask for anything specific.

Just express gratitude every day and then observe what happens.

You may be AMAZED!
