Good morning Blessed Manifestation family! Our bodies, minds, and souls hold on to so much emotional weight. Whenever there’s an excess, it needs a release, and often this release manifests in unexpected ways, such as with health issues. Think of today as an emotional de-cluttering day. It’s time to become more aware of how much you hold on to, and how much you need to let go of.
I spoke to a counselor once who spoke to me about tears. I am not one to cry much, or at least not around others. It honestly makes me feel a bit weak and vulnerable to cry, but sometimes that’s exactly what I need. This counselor told me that tears are a way for the body to release stress hormones, so tears were necessary to finding peace and balance. I don’t know about you but when I have a good cry, I always feel better afterwards. I’m not telling you to cry today, but if you feel called to do so, let it out.
You can find other ways to cleanse yourself from emotional baggage that is no longer relevant to your life. Old hurts and betrayals. Feelings of failure or unfulfilled expectations. Guilt, shame…there’s so much. But the point here is that you don’t need to dig real deep to pull up some things that need to be let go of. I bet there’s plenty already coming to the surface. This is an opportunity of great healing for you. We will be experiencing a Full Moon in Virgo this week, asking us to “clean house”, but in this case it’s related to the house within us. Scrub your internal walls clean of the gunk that’s been holding you back.
You can cleanse and purify yourself in a number of ways. First, body–dedicate some time to plan out a detox for yourself–cleansing your body from the inside out. It can be for a week, but anything you do now for your health you will be grateful for later. Your mind–meditation is at the top of my list with this one. Thoughts can feel so heavy and overpowering at times, so you want to find the space within yourself to allow things to be–to allow thoughts to come and go without giving up so much of your personal power to them. Meditation and mindfulness can help with this. You can listen to free meditations on Youtube, or I highly recommend the “Headspace” app. You can do a free trial and check it out; if you’re a student they have a great discount. I’ve been doing a 10-minute meditation every morning and I find that it helps me not give in so much to the anxious thoughts.
Detoxing the heart…this may probably be the most challenging task because you have to be willing to forgive; yourself, and others. Forgiveness is healing and is for closure. You may never forget what happened, but you can release it into the past. Ask yourself if you are willing to forgive today; willingness is all you need–you don’t even need to know how to do it. Divine guidance will show you the way once you ask for help.
Lastly, a spiritual detox. You can do this by cleansing your energy–my favorite way to do this is by soaking in Epsom Salt, or Pink Salt. You can also light some palo santo, or sprinkle Holy Water…many ways to clear your energy. Having crystals and plants in your space are also great ways to absorb negative vibes. We pick up so much energy on a daily basis, so clearing yourself regularly is necessary.
Consider what role you’ve played in causing someone else harm. Even if you don’t think you’ve wronged anyone, assume you did. We’ve all done, thought, or said something to someone else, even unconsciously. Step outside of your own problems and thoughts, and do some good for others when you can. Be generous and give others of your time, and even monetary contributions. Support small business and nonprofits doing good for the world, especially if you feel you need a karmic boost.
Have a blessed day all!
