The Empowered Spirit Show

May 23, 2018

There is so much going on in the world, all around us and coming in from the cosmos. 

Lots of influences that are affecting each of us, including myself.

Having the tools to work through them is so important!  

One of the tools I love is Reiki.

Today is Day 3 of the Reiki healing Summit Spring 2018, and it’s the day that I am being interviewed!

My interview is about using Reiki to help move through transitions in life. If ever there was a time of transitions, now would qualify. Click here for the link for the Summit to listen in.  

Each day, the interviews last for 24 hours, so don’t wait!  

I also have a five-step guide on my website, to help you use Reiki to move through these transitions. Be sure to download it!

Can you tell there are transitions going on?  World, local and/or personal transitions?

Which are affecting you the most?

The last several months have been really pushing us to do our work. You have been asked, maybe even forced, to look at some of the dark stuff within.

I know I have!

In our last episode of the Empowered Spirit Show, we started talking about the shadow side and the darkness that keeps your light from shining, the darkness that hides your gifts.

We talked with Pam Moore from the Moore Institute about her new book, Show me the Way: How to Unhook and Live Free. It offered great insight to working with the darkness and shadows within.

So, I wanted to go a little deeper with this and talk about these shadows and the darkness we hide or stuff down.

I wanted to take some time to really look at this and offer some tools so that you can begin to embrace this with light with extra love and compassion towards yourself. 

It is a choice to look within and uncover these issues, a conscious decision I have had to make.

It is not always the easiest to admit, but it has helped me to learn about myself and the energy of resentment.

Resentment is an emotional response or state resulting from feeling slighted or a persistent ill will at something or someone.  It’s a mixture of disappointment, anger, and fear.

Resentment builds up inside.

It can eat up your relationships and destroy your spirit.

The feeling can be caused by several different situations. However, they all involve a sense of injustice or wrongdoing from an individual.

For example, public humiliation, constant discrimination or prejudice, being taken advantage of or even feeling unrecognized.

Envy and jealousy can also result in resentment.

Resentment is the strong and painful bitterness you feel when someone does something wrong to you.  

It can feel very heavy and can last a long time. Sometimes resentment lasts for years. 

It winds you up tightly.

Resentment creates stress and leads to unhealthy growth right at the cellular level.

Resentment takes over and eats you up inside.

Resentment thrives on negative feelings and grows more intense when we are unwilling to forgive and release the emotional pain.

These negative feelings are felt through a disruption of the body’s energy and can manifest in physical pain and disease. To overcome these negative thoughts, the body’s energy must be restored.

Did you know that one of the predominate outward manifestations of resentment is cancer?

Cancer parallels this energy in that it eats you up inside as well.

Now, I know there can be other factors to this as well, like environment and genetics, but what I have found is that we must look to the root cause.  

What is the underlying factor?

Did you know that the American Medical Association (AMA) states that 80% of all health problems are stress related? And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that 85% of all diseases appear to have an emotional element.

85% wow!

So what emotions are you stifling?

What feelings are you hiding?

That is a big question…right?  

In the last episode, Pam Moore talked about the abuse she suffered and the emotions of unworthiness that followed her which spiraled into addiction. Emotions can do that, at least unresolved emotions.

So where am I going with all of this?

I have come to notice for myself that this emotion of resentment was stuffed down deep within me. 

I knew it was there, but I couldn’t (or didn’t) really want to deal with it.

Holding on to these negative emotions was harmful to my emotional health and had started to impact my quality of life, which is what I open up about in this episode.

The meditation begins at 3:00.

The oracle card from the Wisdom of Oracle deck that came forward was Leg Up.  The essential meaning is about receiving help, delegating authority, interdependence. The message is about recognizing that you have come to a point where going at it alone is no longer optimal for you. Life has a way of presenting you with the perfect people to align with who can give you a leg up during this next phase of your journey. The trick is to accept that aid so freely given. When you embrace interdependence, allowing teamwork and independence to commingle, miracles happen. Now is such a time.

It takes looking at all aspects…the body, mind and spirit.

It takes getting quiet and really listening. And then it takes some action. It can be subtle at first.

As it was for me, it begins with sitting in your sacred space.

Having that place, that safe haven to go, to get really quiet within allows you to trust the messages of your soul, your spirit.

It is there for you.

It’s so easy to hide and run and turn to addiction, but with the love of your spirit, you can do it.

I can help you.

I am so grateful for this work.

I’ll continue on this path and notice the healing each day. I’ll rid my body and spirit of this resentment and cancer as I follow these new paths that are opening up for me.

If you need help creating a spiritual path, I have a brand new guide, 5 Simple Steps to Creating a Spiritual Practice that you can get on my website.  Download it and begin your practice today!

Reach out. You don’t have to do this alone. 

Thank you for listening.

I hope my story will inspire you to lighten up any darkness or shadows that may be looming inside.

The world needs your light.
