When was the last time you gave your self some personal permission? Something that your soul/spirit was screaming for, and you actually listened? A moment when you choose to live consciously, instead of unconscious; you allowed yourself to act with complete awareness, instead of “sleepwalking”…
I am not talking about a bottle of wine after the kids have gone to bed. Or a new pair or shoes, watch, car, etc… I am talking about nurturing your inner self. Some action that is taken in a space more sacred than the material world. Maybe a long, hot bath. A massage, acupuncture, or reiki treatment. Time meditating, journaling, reading a good book. Having a chat with your heart, and actually listening. Permission to take a nap. Permission to do something for YOU because of YOU!
Life is about loving. Or, failing to love. You can obviously break that down into many different aspects and examples. At the end of the day though, the choice is yours! In our remembrances of ourselves as pure love and light, we go through multiple changes and shedding of layers, as my last entry; subtitled Books and Butterflies; talked about. The past couple weeks, my mediations, and other pretty cool tools I’ll share with you in a bit, have been focused on releasing judgements and expectations.
Having facilitated plenty of Emotional Release Techniques with essential oils; (email if you have questions about this technique), as well as received them, I understand that certain emotions may need to be released in a very slow, cautious, subtle manner. Partly due to the possibility that you may actually feel and experience these feelings on a heightened level as they are being released. It is scientifically proven that we store and carry emotions at a cellular level. In order to release them fully out of the physical body, we need to “unstick” them. There are multiple methods which have been passed onto me, that work all-together to ensure these stuck emotions begin their journey out. If you live your life with negative emotions living in you, this is where disease, DIS-EASE happens…if it becomes serious enough.
I could dive into why body movement such as both Yin and Yang yoga are NECESSARY for helping to release these. This is not the day for that talk. Basically, when you have a tight knot, what do you do??? You begin to wriggle it. In other words: move it!!! 😉
Back to the topic at hand…The following two emotions are ones that have been engrained into my being a bit more deeply than others I have already released: Judgment and Expectation.
Remember: Everything is in divine perfect order right now, and it ALWAYS is!!!
For me, the emotion of judgement more so than expectation. As to “why” is another story, and that will come out when it’s ready. Not one moment sooner. Now here they are, making their way out slowly but surely, after meditations, essential oils, journaling, reiki, and Crystal therapy. Sometimes you have to let go of who you think you are, and experience that which you are not, in order to remember fully and truly, that which you are! (Thanks to: Conversations With God- Neale Donald Walsch)
Here’s my example of late: I’ve been losing sleep like crazy!!! Leaving my current “home” in San Josecito, Costa Rica on Friday for a new chapter in my travel book. Also, been blessed with amazing ideas & plans for a growth-series through Serenity Revolution. SO, I’ve had all kinds of day dreams and projected EXPECTATIONS at night running through my head. Aye-yei-yei!!! In fact, unless I lay out a crystal grid and do self-reiki, it takes me about 2 hours to actually fall asleep.
Now the other; my mind has been obsessed about JUDGING others around me; my own body; and even my own thoughts and feelings. It’s been quite a trip to have all this going on, all the while observing it from my higher perspective and being. Talk about chaos! (Enter the crazy orchestra part from “A Day in the Life”- Beatles song).
CHOICES!!!! I could choose to let this all upset me, make me angry, frustrated, pissed, sad, depressed, etc… OR, I can choose to simply observe, breathe, and remember that these guys are just traveling up and out of my being, so why not sit and watch with a little smile as they depart? Keeping in mind that I GET TO DECIDE who I am in relation to these. Not letting them make me who I am in quick reaction. Whoa!!!!! Was that too much?? Breathe. Breathe again. Maybe even walk away from this post for a minute. Go observe where your own mind is going. We will wait……………………………………………………………………
Seriously, when was a moment today that you reacted one way, but can now see how you could have chosen another reaction/feeling? It’s in small doses like this that we grow into awareness. Little by little, notice how you are feeling; what you are saying; what you are doing; how you are doing it. In any given situation or circumstance, begin to notice these other aspects of yourself. Seed planted. Grow baby grow!!!!
It also came to my mind how these posts have been coinciding fantastically with the new and full moons. Full moons are a time of releasing. The lunar pull will bring up stuff in you for release whether you like it or not. Whether you are being conscious of it or not. Do you really think that this beautiful full orb ONLY effects the ocean tides???
So in perfect timing, for the full moon this week, I give myself permission to release judgement and expectation. Since it lands smack-dab on Thanksgiving, I am especially thankful for the opportunities to feel both of these emotion so I can decide who I want to be in relation to them. My choice to release. My personal permission to show up for me! I will be traveling to San Jose this weekend and I gave myself permission to get a hotel room with a good bed, hot water for showers, (it’s been only cold showers since I arrived), a pool, and hopefully a movie channel in English! 😉
Now the tools. REIKI REIKI REIKI REIKI. It means life force energy. Everything is made up of energy. Google that if you need to. Self reiki has assisted me in my own life and facilitating reiki has assisted the lives of numerous others. So many now I’ve lost count. Blessed Be. It is a beautiful tool in my daily practice of living. Again, email me if you have questions about this.
Second, crystals. The amazing loving children of Gaia, Mother Earth. Crystals are in more stuff than you think. What is your tv? LCD? Liquid crystal display??? Take a look at your watch. Your floors. Your countertops perhaps? Yup, granite is a crystal my friends! These amazing beauties have the ability to transform, transmute, and transmit energy. This practice has been around for over 6000 years, and is related to reiki in the fact that they both work with your energy flow. Your ki, chi, life-force. The esoteric body that scientists have more recently proved its existence. I am not saying that any of this is a cure for anything. Nor am I giving you any kind of medical advice. I am sharing, what is and has been for the past 4 years, working for me.
If you don’t want to hear from this Gypsy Wolf, then here’s something straight from Sara: my life was on a one way road to unhappiness when I was re-introduced to all this “mystic”/Divine/Angelic stuff. I did not believe in a lot of it. (But again, deep down, Gypsy Wolf really knew it. Confused yet?) I started meditating. Got certified in Reiki, Essential Oils and Crystals as an Integrative Healer. Then as a yoga instructor to top it off. Ever since, that one way road now leads to, and stops in: Happyville, Happy Town, Sweet City, Love Lagoon, Music Mountain, Heart Home. Sometimes there are bumps in the road, but remember, I, and YOU have the choice on how we feel, and react to these bumps.
So are you ready to give yourself personal permission??? Ready to listen to that voice you hear and feel??? Are you perfectly happy? I am. Even in my down and dark days, my heart beats with content and love and light. Please, if you are not, how can I assist you??? My ears and email are ALWAYS open to everyone. I am very thankful for each and every one of you! I LOOOOOOOOVE YOUS!!!!
Hugs, Kisses, and Love,
Sara Brooke “Gypsy” Wolf
Other travel updates: Isai and his friend are meeting me this weekend and I will feel-out if I will go with them or not.
