Ask the Heart ~ Lee Harris

“The heart needs its healing and will not rest until it has it. Why? Because the heart is you and you need your healing. The heart is the seat of your soul, the core of your soul. It is the leader of your experience on Earth. Even though it is greatly aided by all of the other colors and energies you possess, it dictates the flow, the mood, the set-up of your day.

The experiences you create and manifest will both serve and respond to your heart. And where your heart is not being served, where you are ignoring its needs, you will find yourself stumbling from difficulty to difficulty – created for yourself in order to remind you to return to your heart. And when you return to your heart, you will see your life and your ideas will not be that different. But with heart energy behind those ideas, they will be in truth for you and so far more successful, far more in flow and, far easier to manifest.

Diving into the heart each morning is a solution for many of you at this time of great change. When you find yourselves thrown by your hearts on a daily basis, distracted from life or pulled out of what you are doing by your feelings. Your feelings are the most important thing for you to attend to at this time. If you allow your feelings and their requirements when they rise to be present in your life, they will pass through. If you fight or suppress them, they will hang around for longer because they need to be served – and released.

Grief and sadness do not belong to you. You have to let them go. Joy and happiness do not belong to you. You have to let them go too. Life is a kaleidoscope that you agreed to be a part of – it will become more peaceful. There will be far less human pain and struggle the more you progress, but the attachments will lead you astray. Not from your path or your truth, for if you allow yourself to be led by attachments, you are learning from that experience. There is no wrong turn you can take. All is your creation. If you no longer wish to be led astray from your heart’s desires, needs and your heart energy – allow yourself the experience of this exercise. 

By giving your heart this attention each morning, a greater level of relationship will automatically be reached within you. It will give many of you great stability, especially on days when you are experiencing struggle. you will work with the energies that need attending to within your heart in a concentrated form so that they do not need to be manifested in your life. You will have dealt with the bulk of the energy each morning. Sometimes you will find the energy will be dissolved and you will return to peace by the end of the exercise. 

Do not be alarmed by whatever you find in your heart each morning. If you find sadness, accept it for it will not be there forever. It will move. It always does. Sometimes it takes longer and that is fine. Just allow and accept. When you begin to allow and accept the heart, it moves forward fast and your experience of peace comes faster, deeper, truer and more felt than ever before. 

This is the key to your soul evolution – this heart energy – this heart power you possess.”

“I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.” ~Hermann Hesse

 

The Symbolic and Spiritual Aspects of Cleaning – How You Can Optimize You


lotus

I’m a hugely symbolic person and live my life as a “work of art” that I create in each moment with everything within and without being sacred, and seeing all things as mirroring symbolism that reflect the state of my being.

Since the beginning, I have always been in constant transformation…it comes second-nature to me and I am continuously embracing change. Along with that, I have continuously also been huge on cleaning out, purging, cleansing – whatever you’d like to call it – which I see as a natural cycle that flows in and out by my giving and receiving, releasing and embracing…all mirroring of the natural rhythms of the Earth and the Universal experience.

This cleansing cycle is something inherent within me and even my body works in direct mirror to this, with all things that go in, go out…nothing is held on to 🙂 I feel that the level of ease or difficulty to which all experiences in our lives take place, directly mirrors our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual landscape in totality and how we process things in all of these ways.

I just went through another round (which happens about every few months, or less, depending on what my energy calls for) of releasing, therefore cleaning out. Yesterday I gave away a huge load of things, with one load going to Good Will and then two large boxes going to faery friends who are my size. I love sharing my things with others and often I feel that I acquire things more for others than myself, as some things don’t stay long in my life, and I can tell immediately who they would perfectly match. I have found this to be true about a lot of things..that I am a channel to help things get to where they need to be.

And yesterday, as I sent off and dropped off all my goodies to everyone, feeling so good that others will be receiving joy from these gifts, I also felt a huge energetic shift. I had felt energy building and by releasing some of that steam, things then have room to recalibrate and make space for other things. Immediately after my drop off, I went to the store with a handy coupon on hand I had just received, and picked up 13 new canvases to create more Crystal Illuminations. Even though I knew this was coming, it hadn’t felt right until this day and with the opening of new energy coming in, by releasing the old, I can see how I’ve embraced and opened the door for the next evolution of creation to flow in.

There is definitely an inherent symbolic and spiritual aspect of cleaning. I know in my life, there simply is no doubt about that. There is also a powerful symbolism in keeping things tidy in your space you live and work in. This organization and orderliness assists you in staying clear and focused, and away from the confusion.

Whether its laundry, papers, clothing, dishes, leaves in the yard, emails, voicemails, things around the house…this all weighs heavily on your energetic clarity and vibrancy. You can effect your optimization by being mindful of your surroundings and what they are reflecting about your inner environment. And when you learn to release more simple things in life you learn the power of detaching and how attachment is counterproductive to the nature of the Universe.

When you clean up and clean out, you free yourself to unlimited possibilities. The channels open. The blockages unclog.

It is definitely therapeutic as well. You can even make a fun meditational and intentful experience out of the cleaning out process, chanting mantras, making up a song and dance, saying affirmations, stating things like “as I release the old, I now welcome the new in for the highest good of all concerned…” etc. You can see each item that needs to be removed or cleaned out as representing a resentment, envy, anger, frustration, or anything that is disconnecting you from being centered, balanced, and connected to Source. And imagine that as you organize, bag up, rake, throw away, that each of those things go away and release from your experience, as you forgive and send unconditional love and compassion to yourself and others.

This is a way you can enjoy the process and realize the benefits, rather than seeing it as a chore and hard work. Know that with each step you take in clearing away, you are clearing your own way in life for all possibilities, opportunities, and inspirations to flow in, as you are allowing things to flow out.

Happy cleaning!
