Solar Plexus vs Heart: A Change in Energies

Lately, the energies have been shifting from living from our power center, to our heart center. I’ve been experiencing solar plexus turbulence… this energy needs to move from our solar plexus to our heart. Expectations of relationships and power struggles need to be exchanged for unconditional love and surrender. Moving the energies from our solar plexus to the heart leads to us feeling better in this changing time.

I will do my best to explain how relationships manifest through the solar plexus and the heart center.

Living from the Solar Plexus

When we are expressing ourselves through the energy of the solar plexus, we seek to control the outcomes and circumstances of our life. This is easily seen in relationships– with others and yourself.

This is seeking to control other’s reactions. You act in ways and expect for others to react in certain ways as well. This need to be in control– the need to have power is blocking us from experiencing free and loving relationships.

This can also feel like you losing control of your relationships, that things are falling apart. From either of these places, it’s important to surrender. Surrender to the process of life. Surrender and act from the heart.

Living from the Heart

Living from your heart-center means acceptance. Acceptance for others and who they are. Accepting other’s reactions. Accepting yourself if you make a mistake. Accepting other’s mistakes.

You let others experience what they choose to, in their own time. Letting go of expectations of them, seeking the highest good for all.

This is the space of unconditional love.

Isn’t this what we all want? To be loved unconditionally.

Accept everything as an experience. A chosen experience.

This isn’t to say put up with abusive or unhealthy relationships. This means to love and accept yourself so much that you don’t obsess over getting love from anyone else. Have love and acceptance flood your own life, so this love floods into every relationship you have with others.

We are all doing the best we can, with all that we know, now.

No– we will not always be perfect at this. We will not always live this way. In the process of coming back to true, unconditional love is where the lessons are learned. Just trying is where growth happens. Just showing up opens the door to learn the lessons.

I invite you to surrender a little more into your heart-space.

love you!

What if I’m Wrong?

 What I learned from cleaning out my closet.

Today I decided to sort out my closet. I, like many people, have many clothes that I hardly wear. This creates lots of clutter that I deal with daily. I’ve wanted to clean out my closet for a while now, but it has always been too overwhelming.

I have told myself in the past that cleaning out the closet is hard. Throwing things out is rough. I want to hold onto clothes that “I might need one day” or clothes that are “practically new” but never worn.

I was telling myself a story about organizing my closet– That it’s too difficult for me to do. What if I’m wrong about this story I created? Continue reading “What if I’m Wrong?”

Emotional Healing Through Yoga

On the last day of my yoga teacher training, we gave our final presentations. In the first half, we presented a yoga sequence. For the second half, we talked about our experiences through the teacher training. I was the last one to present– I was so anxious about presenting, everyone before me had gone and done a fabulous job. After I had started presenting, I was crying and way too nervous, I couldn’t follow my notes. It was embarrassing! I couldn’t believe I couldn’t even get through my presentation without having a hard time. I was never good at speaking in front of people, and I was living in my fear with everyone watching me– Crying in front of a group of people. Continue reading “Emotional Healing Through Yoga”

How to Save Yourself

Last week, I was in a slump for a few days. I was not in the love vibration during this time, nowhere even close to it. I had fallen into patterns of fear and holding resentment towards nearly every area of my life. It was too exhausting to leave my room at times, and I was crying most of the day. How could I let myself get to this point? I thought I was strong, I knew how to get my vibration higher, but I suddenly had no motivation to do so. I thought I could not fall as far as I did. But I let myself fall. My mind wanted to stay in the loops and cycles of fear. How could I come back to love? How could I come back to that light-hearted feeling I once knew so well? Continue reading “How to Save Yourself”

Coming Back to Love

Life is not about staying in the vibration of love all the time. It’s about learning to come back to love. No one is perfect. We’re all perfectly imperfect. This week was a bit challenging emotionally for me. I wasn’t always in the vibration of love. I wasn’t always seeing the best in others. But the lesson for me at this time was to come back to myself. Release all expectations of what I’m “supposed to be doing” and simply step into being.

It’s ok to take a break.

What is love?

One topic I find that many people don’t fully grasp is the concept of love. Everyone seeks for love. What exactly is love? Is love found and quantified by hormones that run through the body? Is love only in place to force us to continue and perpetuate the species at the instinctual level? Might it be a social construct evolved to pair up for mutual benefit and combined resources making the individual struggle easier? Love has a purpose that is more than this. Love is more than material objects and social obligations. Love is the grand river we all play in– it guides our experiences.  Continue reading “What is love?”
