Often when we become stressed, we put an extra burden on our bodies by cutting ourselves off from what we are feeling so that we can just “get through” the stress.

When this chakra is open—its normal state—and allows energy in, it receives health, love, joy, and wealth. Many people refuse to receive, and energetically block this chakra, withholding deserved abundance and healing.
Considering that the heart chakra receives the highest amount of energy in the human body, it is understandable that it’s a good idea to keep it open and flowing. Check out Marie’s website for exercises for helping the heart chakra receive energy and to keep it from leaking energy.
I was thinking about my friend and teacher Geordie today. If you are in NYC, I highly recommend you check out his reiki circle on Monday nights at the Madison Wellness Center! He also volunteers his time for those in recovery from addictions at Third Root Health Center in Brooklyn.
It is very good to learn ways to help people who need it most and the power to heal is not about the money; On the contrary, often an illness appear that perhaps develops from the imbalance in our lives.
. . . within this stable structure of laws and cycles, each moment which arises is totally unique and offers an infinite range of ever changing possibilities. In this and every now, we have the freedom and power to create, share, transform and enhance, while enjoying the magic, mystery and beauty within us and all around us.
Utah was not a place for me, not even for a week and a half. Even my this-will-be-an-interesting-experience adventure self said, “Run, Lady! Run!” And I didn’t run fast enough! I said to myself, “Ok, give notice and stay ’til the end of the month,” but the powers that be had other plans and I met head-on with the town patriarch via my little gray Taurus and his 65 Chevy pick-em-up truck when he came barreling around a corner on the wrong side of the road.
