Let it all go, there is only love

Let it all go, there is only love

Sometimes we are super attracted to someone, like the ‘OMG this is the most amazing person in the whole world’ kind of attracted to someone. There might be times of amazing connection and passion. There might even be feelings of wanting to be with that person and share many adventures with them…

 
But sometimes we find our communication breaking down and our lives just not meshing up. We might feel a sense of anger or hostility towards them, or them us for no really good reasons, other than we are not on the same page anymore…
 
I think we all want magic moments to last forever. We want those beautiful nights of connection, bonding with candles and wine, talking about the deepest parts of ourselves…but perhaps these are momentary gifts, like a sunset or a beautiful flower in bloom…
We can’t have that sunset every night…and that flower will slowly fade and wither…but for the moments we get to receive it. For the time we get to be fully present with them…ah that is true magic…
 
So maybe we should stop trying to make things work that aren’t harmonizing. What if we just walked away from that pain and suffering of trying to bring back a moment in time. that will never be the same again and come back to focus on our connection with ourselves?
 
Perhaps if we walk away from our intense focus on this experience and release it, it will come back to us in time, or maybe the world will show us an even more amazing sunset with colors more vibrant than we have ever seen…
 
Either way as we release our past experiences we free ourselves to experience something new and we can’t do that if we are stuck to the tv screen of the past watching reruns…
 
So in this moment…if you are ready…take a deep breath…
Give thanks for all of the amazing experiences and people you have met and been with in your life. Send them a big hug of your ever present Divine Love.
 
Then breathe yourself back to present time. Breathe all of your energy back from those people and those experiences. Feel it settling back down into your body… feeling your energy filling up each and every cell of your body. Breathing all of your energy back to you fully and completely.
 
Breathing out any energy you have held onto from others. Searching for it in your body and giving it back to these people as a gift of love. Blessing it and thanking it as it flows back to them…
 
As we bring our energy back to us and give their energy back to them it frees us both…we are no longer enmeshed within each other, but we are free to love the other as the free being they are as the free being we are.
 

When I talk about releasing the energy of others  sometimes people get afraid of losing the other person…but when we are fully free there is no fear. We are not afraid of losing the other person because they were never ours to hold on to.  Attaching to another always feels weird eventually because all people want to be connected, but feel free. So as we free the other persona’s energy we are making room for even more love…the world doesn’t not teach us this, but when you feel it, you’ll know it’s true…

Be brave enough to make the leap of faith and I can promise you once you make it through the fear and release everything…

 
There is only love <3

Living a perfectly imperfect life

Living a perfectly imperfect life

As my life unfolds I feel like a witness as well as an active participant. I am seeing more clearly the way things develop as I make choices for my highest good, but I also see that the Universe has this bigger plan for me and all of the things that I thought were bad choices were also part of the journey.

Every interaction with each person, all the pain, all the joy, all the humiliation and all of the courage, they are all intricate pieces. Each one as important as the next. You can’t skip over a piece because the puzzle will be incomplete. For many years I think I tried to believe that I didn’t need to experience some pieces…that my life would have been better without them, but if I had not been through and been a part of all that I have I would not be the person I am today.

It’s OK to get angry, it’s ok to be sad, it’s ok to be manic and it’s ok to rest. it’s ok to explore relationships that aren’t meant for you and then it’s ok to leave them. It’s also ok to pretend you are a victim…and it’s also ok to realize that you chose it…all of it, just to have the experience of life.

I wake up this morning knowing that the choices I have made or are about to make aren’t perfect…but then again maybe they are…just because I don’t have it all together and am not graceful all the time doesn’t mean that it’s not perfect in some way. Maybe figuring out how to be the best kind of human just looks and feels weird sometimes…and maybe…just for today I am going to embrace feeling weird and uncomfortable…and I am even going to love it…

What are Chakras?

What are Chakras?

 

Many thousands of years ago in India someone figured out there are energy centers in and around our physical body that help us to understand emotions and how to process the energy that is all around us. These energy centers help us to give and receive different kinds of emotions and energies.

 

The main 7 chakras are:

Chakra 1: Root Chakra: Grounding and feeling safe: Located at the perineum.

Chakra 2: Sacral Chakra: Relationships, creativity, sexuality: Located around and just below the navel.

Chakra 3: Solar Plexus: Your power center, making things happen, using your will do the things you want to do, feeling sure of yourself : Located at the diaphragm

Chakra 4: Heart Center, how you love and are able to receive love: Located in the center of the chest.

Chakra 5: Throat Center: How you communicate with yourself and others, also how you are able to understand what others are trying to communicate to you. Located in the center of the throat.

Chakra 6: Third eye: Gaining insight about yourself and others in a deeper way. Located in the center of the forehead.

Chakra 7: Crown Chakra: Your connection with God, The Universe, The Divine, whatever that higher power shows up as for you. Located at the top of your head.

Each chakra has a front and rear aspect. The front comes out of the front of the body and the rear is connected and opens in the back. The front aspects are about how we give the rear are about how we receive. Someone can be able to give a lot of love if their front heart chakra is wide open, but often times there is an imbalance with the rear chakra being closed and so it creates someone who give a lot of love but is not able to receive love at all.

All chakras are connected front and back and also from the top of the head through the root with a channel of light that runs through the center of the body. There are also 2 other channels that run on either side of the spinal column.

There are many more chakras and connections, but a basic understanding of these 7 will probably be more than enough information if you are just starting out.

All chakras work independently, but they also work together. It’s kind of like your hands work on their own, but in order for them to work properly you need your arms and shoulders to be working as well. If your shoulders are out of alignment your hands are going to have a more challenging time doing what they need to do. The same goes for chakras.

When your chakras are open, flowing and in communication with one another you are able to interact with the world in an easy and effortless way. You feel like you are at one with everything and everyone and life is a beautiful place to be. When one of our chakras is out of alignment it causes a breakdown in understanding and communication with the other chakras. An example of this would be: Let’s say you were feeling really amazing one day and you wanted to share something you saw with a good friend. That friend might not have been in a good mood that day and told you they didn’t want to hear about it. If your throat chakra is open and flowing with the rest of your chakras you might just brush it off, but there might be an old memory hidden from childhood that says, ‘Nobody wants to hear what I have to say, what I have to say isn’t important.’ Your throat chakra might close down thinking it is protecting itself. When your throat chakra closes down you are not able to communicate in an open and flowing manner. Even if you feel a deep experience of love in your heart, you won’t be able to express it. It’s often the reason that we feel so much love welling up inside of us but we don’t know what to do with it. There is a disconnect.

What do we do when we identify that perhaps there might be a disconnect or trigger in the chakra?

Get yourself into a quiet place. Calm your body and breathe deeply.
Scan each of your chakras for feelings of resistance. If you come across some resistance, breathe into it. Allow yourself to relax as much as possible. You might feel deep intense emotions and that is ok, just breathe with them. You have already been through the hardest part of the pain, what you are experiencing is the emotions coming through your body to be released.  Imagine that the emotions you are feeling are coming from a small child who is afraid and is in need of some comforting. The more relaxed you can be during the release, the easier and faster they will dissipate. Keep present with these feelings and dive deeper into them, seeking out every last little bit of them and as you do they will quickly dissolve like dew in the sun.

(Interesting note: Many times when we experience a painful event we want to run away from the feeling. But when we do that it is only stored in our energyfield until we are able to deal with it. We go from painful experience to painful experience thinking we are running from it, but each time we are creating these little pockets of pain to be opened later and they are often triggered out of the blue later by some other event. The more we can be present with the pain as it is happening, the faster it can be released from our body. Pain is just a way our body tells us that there is something that is not quite right, not in alignment, so as we feel it and bring light to it, it can be released from the body forever.)

If you’d like a little more assistance with how to clear the chakras you can go to my YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/joannaalbrecht
Or you can schedule a SpiritBody Integration where we go more in depth into all of the chakras  front and rear as well as their aspects and release any energy or cords that are keeping you from full clear flow and alignment.

Thanks for reading!

Wishing you Clarity, Alignment, Strength and Balance on your journey through life!

Vulnerable Exploration in the Waves

Vulnerable Exploration in the Waves

I have been receiving a lot of deep energetic healing lately as well as massage sessions as I go through this meditation process…
Yesterday as I was coming out of a session I felt more vulnerable than I have felt in a long time. I couldn’t stop crying, I made my way over to the Lake and watched the waves and reminded myself that the waves of emotions that were crashing over me would soon calm…

There is something about going into these emotions, fully feeling them without trying to stop them…Oh I tried to stop them every once in a while…texted a friend, tried to distract myself from the moment…but then I remembered this time many years ago when I was just learning about healing…

I was Quantum Leaping in consciousness, working, studying and doing healing during the day, doing dream work at night, taking massive amounts of herbs and fasting for body cleansing. Then one night I was in a deep meditation and I just sat up out of my body. I looked around the room and freaked out a bit when I looked back and saw my body…I then looked over at the phone and was thinking, “Who can I call to help me with this?” But then it dawned on me…you can’t use a phone when you don’t have a body…

Eventually I was able to settle myself back into my physical body…but that experience serves as a reminder to me…

Sometimes during this intense exploration of consciousness we go deeper than we have gone before. It might seem scary, it might seem like we need help. but these things we are experiencing…it is us exploring us…no other person is going to be able to guide you through your process…the best that can happen is you reach out to someone who can make you feel more at ease or calm you, but this time of learning…it’s something only you can do for you….and as terrifying as it might seem during the process, once the waves settle you come out with a greater clarity.

When I go through these intense sessions I am reminded of a poem by Maira Rainer Rilke

That some day, emerging at last from the terrifying vision
I may burst into jubilant praise to assenting angels!
That of the clear-struck keys of the heart not one may fail
to sound because of a loose, doubtful or broken string!
That my streaming countenance may make me more resplendent
That my humble weeping change into blossoms.
Oh, how will you then, nights of suffering, be remembered
with love. Why did I not kneel more fervently, disconsolate
sisters, more bendingly kneel to receive you, more loosely
surrender myself to your loosened hair? We, squanderers of
gazing beyond them to judge the end of their duration.
They are only our winter’s foliage, our sombre evergreen,
one of the seasons of our interior year, -not only season,
but place, settlement, camp, soil and dwelling.

During the process it seems like it will last forever and there is a fair amount of wanting it to end quickly but if you can remember that this is a time of deep learning and transformation. When you come out of this you will have a deeper understanding of what your truth is…a deeper clarity. So if in the midst of these stormy waves  you can remember to breathe and pay attention to what is happening.

Today the storms have all past and I feel lighter and more clear than I have in a while. I look back on yesterday as a journey into dissolving the walls I had been building around my heart, that I didn’t even know were there…and I feel so grateful for the experience.

If you love someone, set them free

If you love someone, set them free

I had a deep healing last night and today I felt like I had let go of everything and everyone…

I noticed that I can love everyone so much more when I am not attached to them.

It seems so ironic…I know, but if you love someone…set them free…

I think I know what that means now….Letting someone go is the only real way you can love them….because only from a place of detachment can you see that person for who they truly are…not the Attachment Story.

The Attachment Story is the filter you put up between you and another person that causes you to only see them from your point of view. Their thoughts feelings and emotions go out the window and you project onto them what your thoughts hopes and dreams are…”I will love them only if they do what I want and if they don’t do what I want I will attack them….”

What they want is not as important as them fitting into your story line…it’s very twisted, but it happens all the time and people see it as normal…until you break it apart and look at it.

People can become quite upset at the ones they say they love if they don’t full fill their part in the made up role they are supposed to be playing.

Wouldn’t it actually be more loving to let go? Let go of that person you love every day. Making every day a new day of exploration with them. They are new, you are new…seeing each other with fresh eyes. And through a place of detachment. They become another person separate from you. You get to learn them all over again.

Letting go can be scary at first because you might think that attachment and control mean love and the only way they will stay is because of an obligation attachment….but you can only control someone for so long and when you get tired or they get tired, things start to break down.

Setting our lover free in every moment we can meet them again and again. Fall in love again and again…and when we give up our control it frees them to choose us again and again. Because doesn’t it feel better to be chosen from a sense of freedom and not obligation?

I used to think it took a strong person to think this way…but more and more I have begun to realize, it just takes someone with the courage to let go. To free the ones they love continuously so they can be free too…letting go is not an act of war…it is a loving act of peace.

When you have an Attachment Story about someone, you in essence enslave them to your way of being, and if you have enslaved another you then in turn become a slave…

If you truly want to love your fellow humans…

Free your prisoners…
Free yourself…
