Keeping the Heart Chakra Open
Sunday, October 20, 2019
So much about losing weight is tied to releasing stagnant emotions. It's like every time I ate a bag of fun-sized three musketeers to escape to chocolate-land or overate in the name of recreation, the emotions I was stuffing became encapsulated in my fat cells just waiting for me to release them. I've released 16 pounds of them now. I feel lighter and happier as I work through these feelings.
I have a friend who sits a market stall and bills herself as a chakra healer so I stopped into her spot and she gave me a bracelet of green aventurine and hematite. She says it will help. She also gave me a stick of wood to burn, much like smudging with sage but different and some incense. All of these are to assist in the cleansing and purifying of my heart chakra.
I'm so open to this journey right now. I've only just begun. Yes, it seems slow and requires patience to work on my nutrition and fitness habits and it does require time and effort. It seems just about the time I'm cruising along that I start to get sloppy and stop tracking or measuring and need to bring my focus back to the present. It does require me to show up if I want the results to continue. And I do. Yes, I do. The time goes by. When I look back and realize I've been doing this for eight or nine weeks already, I get excited because I'm starting to realize that I CAN do this for another day, another week, another month. And when I set reasonable goals and meet them, it feels good.
I'm gonna give my goals for the coming week some definition and hopefully I'll continue to see the results I've been seeing. I'm ready to face the feelings and release them if need be. I'm going to be hopeful, humble and keep that heart chakra open.
