Tuning Into the Heart

Image by Victoria Constantino

The value of tuning into the heart is immense. The heart is the seat of the soul, and when we attune to our hearts, we tap into our own greatest wisdom, to our integral truth, and to infinite intelligence. Yet, it is not always easy to tune in. When our hearts are heavy and filled with the weight of the past or present circumstances, and with heavy energies like guilt, sorrow, and regret, it can block us from receiving our highest guidance, which is always present within us. In order to attune to this and receive the guidance that will allow us to live our best possible lives and our highest possibilities, we have to clear those heavy energies. We hear a lot about letting go, but less about exactly how to do this. It isn’t always instinctive or natural or easy for us to let go, especially when we’ve been carrying around energies for a long time or have unprocessed emotions.

A helpful first step is getting clear on what it is we need to process and what we are still holding onto. We can hold onto energies and heavy emotions for years without being aware that we are still harboring them. They can find hidden places within us, which is where meditation can be extremely helpful, as it helps to shift our energy and clears out the old baggage, even if we are not aware that is what is happening. Journaling is helpful when we are processing emotions, especially when we begin by setting an intention, such as the desire to gain clarity on what needs to go or what is holding us back, how to process old wounds, or releasing the weight of the past.

We are blessed as humans in this manifested physical experience to have allies both in the physical and nonphysical. Archangel Raphael, a master healer, is a great ally in the nonphysical whom we can call on at any time. His color is green, coinciding with the color of the heart chakra. Archangel Raphael can help us to heal our hearts and clear any blockages we may have. When we wear certain colors, like green, we are drawing their energetic properties to us. Wearing green or surrounding ourselves in green when we are on a healing path can be helpful. Similarly, any green crystals, jewelry, or artwork can bring in healing energies to us or the space around us. One option is to create a green room or area where you live that is a space decorated with green objects. This can be a place where you meditate, journal, or engage in other activities that support your healing journey.

Aromatherapy and music are powerful allies, as are the elements and the elemental energies. Water is a masterful healer and a powerful cleanser. Water has many properties—it is a conduit and is powerfully transformative. It also aids us in letting go. Cleansing in water has been a long-held practice through the ages. We see evidence of this in baptism and water ceremonies. When we shower or bathe, not only are we cleansing ourselves physically, but also energetically. When we support this cleansing with our intentions, it is even more powerful. We can take salt baths (dissolving Epsom salts in bath water) and set the intention of being cleansed and recharged energetically.

Beyond the physical act of cleansing in water, we can also call on the energies of water to purify us energetically and to help us let go of and release any emotions we are holding onto. We can do this through sitting in meditation (in water or not) and asking the element of water to support us in healing, clearing, releasing, and transmuting any and all energies that do not serve our highest good. Likewise, we can call on the element of air to cleanse us energetically. Doing this while out in nature, especially on a windy day, can have powerful positive effects. Among other things, the element of air can cleanse our ear chakras of any energies that are not serving our highest good and can increasingly open us up to the ability to hear our guides and allies in spirit.

Meditating with crystals is another method that supports us in tuning into the heart. Green crystals especially are useful in this regard. We are blessed with a myriad assortment of green crystals on this planet; looking up their properties can be helpful in guiding you to a selection, or you may wish to simply allow your intuition to guide you when choosing one to meditate with. Crystals can also support us when we are journaling. Simply having one nearby or wearing one as jewelry or placed in a pocket can help us to receive its benefits.

The healing journey is unique, personal, and individual to each person. It also varies according to our particular life circumstances, situations, and previous experiences. Some of us are healing family karma or wounds through the family lineage, in addition to our own personal energies. What is important is that we take ownership of our healing, set the intentions to heal, and put in the work—whether through meditation, journaling, therapy, or whatever methods are resonant. Spirit reminds us that we are never alone, and our allies in the nonphysical are always ready to help. They are simply waiting on us to call on them for guidance and support. As we continue to attend to our own needs, engage in self-care, and do things that support our healing path, we start to see results over time. We are asked to be patient with ourselves and know that we all heal at our own pace, and however fast or slow it happens is just right for us.

As the sixteenth day of the first month, today carries aspects of manifestation and new beginnings that bring harmonious results and generate improved balance and prosperity. The aspects of seven also bring in energies of spiritual development, intellectual pursuits, and good fortune, and highlight our exploration into new career endeavors, upskilling and learning new skills, and strengthening in specialty areas. We are encouraged to read more, to explore more information in areas of interest, and to consider how we would like to grow and expand, both spiritually and in our physical lives. Today is a great day to visualize ourselves in a more elevated state of being. We are asked to aim high, dream big, and allow ourselves to receive as we release resistance and welcome the abundance that is ready and waiting to flow to us.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us thirteen, and four. These numbers underscore the energies of manifestation, new opportunities, stability, and balance. We are guided to ground and meditate today, both to clear and purify our energy and to bring us stability. Old energies are still clearing, and as we release what does not serve us layer by layer, we are best served now by relinquishing our grip on the past, setting down the baggage and the heavy weight we have been carrying, and sending it into the earth to be cleared and transmuted, or visualizing it being transmuted with golden light. Daily meditations benefit us powerfully on all levels, as they clear and stabilize our energy, which impacts our ability to focus and to rest deeply. 

The clarity that meditation provides strengthens us more each day and allows us greater access to our own intuition and higher guidance. Meditation also strengthens our energetic boundaries and our personal energy, which provides protection against energies that are not our own and those unwanted that we may encounter in daily life. It also aids us in clearing ancestral and karmic baggage, which we are still releasing and clearing on a global scale in preparation for the new, brighter future that lies ahead for all of us. We are guided to focus upon the good and positive, upon love and light, and pay no mind to the rest of it. Because we are powerful creators, we can rewrite situations in our minds as we would like them to be, transmuting whatever is undesirable by visualizing and imagining it as we would like it to be. When we are persistent in these efforts, we are sending positive energy to situations that can transform them in positive ways. We are asked to send love and light to those who are in the darkness. 

Mantra: It is easy and natural for me to focus on the positive and to visualize the highest possible outcomes for every situation in my awareness. I ask golden healing light to shine upon the world.

As the fourteenth day of the first month, today sees us making progress and gaining solid footing in matters of importance. Meditation, grounding, and spending time in nature are allies to our strength and improvement, and help fortify us energetically. Our dreams are being made manifest, and we are benefitted by trusting this and strengthening in our faith that everything is working out according to our highest good. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us eleven, and two. Eleven is a gateway number that shifts us from one energy into another. Where we choose to focus our energy is key. When multiple ones appear, as with eleven, it is especially important to keep our thoughts positive. Underlying our thoughts are our beliefs, what we hold to be true. Beliefs can work in our favor or they can block us from receiving what we have asked for. We can rewrite beliefs by thinking new thoughts that benefit us and repeating them to ourselves throughout each day. “Everything is always getting better and better for me” is one example. Eleven and two also indicate partnerships, as we are co-creating with our higher selves and with others in the physical plane. We are also in partnership with our minds at all times. When we keep our energy strong and pure through meditation, prayer, creativity, allowing ourselves to experience joy, and doing what makes us happy, we are giving ourselves solid footing to stand on and energetically allowing the foundations of all that is good in our lives to strengthen. 

Mantra: I welcome improvements to me on all levels. I welcome alignment with my highest path and purpose, clarity, unconditional love, and compassion into my heart.

On Letting Go

Image by Victoria Constantino

Much has been written about the importance of letting go, but in practice, it is easier said than done. Let go, yes—but how?

As many of us already know, holding onto something anchors us with its heavy weight to past circumstances or relationships, and keeps us in the same unsavory energy that the past moments or energy held. A situation or relationship is a container of energy, similar to a room. When we keep thinking of something or someone in the past over and over, it circulates the energy within that room and perpetuates its momentum, keeping it alive and active within us and within our vibrational field, which also attracts more of the same circumstances to us. If we keep coming back to the same past event, relationship, or circumstances, this is a sign that we may have unhealed wounds around it and energetic cording that keeps us attached to it. This creates an energy leak that saps our vitality and life force, and drains our creative energy. Many times, it also prevents us from moving on into something better and into a happier life and strong, rewarding relationships.

There are many ways we can go about letting go, moving on, and healing. The methods that work for you depend on many factors, including what you respond to, the depth of healing needed, and your readiness to move on, to name a few. Beginning with setting the intention that you wish to heal and move on from the particular energies, situation, or relationship is the first and most important step. When you make this declaration, whether by writing it down, meditating on it, or speaking it aloud, you are setting forth the energy of intention to release, clear, and heal. This in turn establishes a momentum that will continue to build and grow. Calling on your team of light, your allies in spirit, is always recommended. Archangel Michael is a powerful ally when it comes to clearing, release, and cord-cutting, and can help you with letting go. Archangel Raphael is a master healer who works with the heart and will help you to heal on all levels. We have only to ask for the assistance of our allies, and they are ready to support us immediately. Because we have free will, they cannot interfere and so are awaiting our request.

One method of clearing cords is to first get into a meditative state and call in your allies for protection, strength, and support. You can begin by visualizing a protective sphere of golden light surrounding you on all sides, three feet above and three feet below you, and around you in a sphere that reaches past your fingertips when you have your arms outstretched. Eyes closed, you can visualize or feel where any cords might be connected to you. Do you feel pressure in a certain area of your body? Depending on your particular abilities, you may be able to see it or have a knowing of where it is. Consider its significance in light of where it is located. Something connected to the sacral chakra can be tied to past romantic relationships; if it is near the heart, it could be associated with heartbreak; something near the root chakra could be related to familial connections or your sense of security and stability; something in the back could be related to backstabbing; if it is around the throat, it could indicate a person or situation who tried to prevent you from speaking your truth or a time when your voice was not heard or was misrepresented. Often, gaining clarity on a cord’s significance can help us to begin the process of clearing. Sometimes, you may know exactly to what person or situation it is connected. The person or past events may come up in your mind as a way of telling you that something needs to be healed there. You can visualize the cord filling with golden light and gently dissolving. Once it is gone, send love and healing to the area of your body where it was, and see that area filling with golden light and then mending as it heals over. You may wish to send love to the situation and anyone connected with it. You can call on your allies to support you through any part of this process, then thank them when you are done.

It can help to follow this with writing down what needs to be released. You can then burn the paper as a way of symbolically and energetically letting it go and releasing it to the universe to be cleared and transmuted so that you can begin your process of healing. Remember to be kind to yourself during the healing process, and to remember that healing is a journey. Journaling can be a therapeutic tool. Writing down what wisdom you learned from the experience can help you to gain clarity. You can also write down how you would like to move forward and how you would like your next experiences to be better as a way of setting intentions and bringing in positive energy to replace the energy that you have cleared or are clearing. Emotional release can be powerfully cleansing; honoring your need to let go of past emotions through tears or any other method that is brimming to the surface is incredibly therapeutic. We are not meant to stifle our emotions or keep them inside, as this only prevents us from letting go and builds the energy until, one day, the dam bursts. Taking salt baths and walks in nature can also be helpful, as these methods can help restore us energetically and bring us energetic purification and greater clarity. You may find that talking with a trusted friend or spending time with animals is helpful. Art may be your master healer; you don’t even have to be very good at it! Some find great solace in listening to music or playing a musical instrument. Getting in the flow state, however we reach it, helps us to process and heal on levels that we are often not consciously aware of. Feeling joy and allowing ourselves to experience laughter and fun are some of the best therapies in existence. Above all, trust your instinct when it comes to the methods you feel will be helpful to you.

Taking the time to really go deep and examine the emotions behind a situation, and what we are still holding onto, can be exactly what we need. Are we holding onto something for fear of letting go? Would we feel guilty for moving on? Behind our resistance to releasing something is sometimes the need to feel secure. When we examine something in depth, it can force us to look at what we don’t want to look at and can shake our sense of stability. Life was just fine; why look under the rug? The thing to remember is that you owe it to yourself to sweep out the debris of your life so that you can stand on truly solid footing. And sometimes, that means taking a deep look at some heavy subjects and memories so that you can dredge them up out of the waters of your subconscious and clear them out for good. It’s important that we pay attention to our feelings. What is ready to be released has a way of bobbing back up to the surface repeatedly until we get out the scuba gear and the net and take a deep dive to fish it out of the waters and cast it out for good. We owe ourselves that. We deserve to live our best possible lives, free and clear and unencumbered by the past.

Some may find that letting go is a decision. It often starts with the desire to heal and move on from something. This establishes an intention energetically, and when you follow that with a clearly stated intention, whether spoken or written, it adds more power to the momentum of your desire and keeps it building and growing as you go through the process. You may feel guided to take certain steps along the way to facilitate your journey. We are all unique, and we all heal in different ways. What’s most important is to honor yourself throughout the process. Making time for yourself, however hectic your schedule may be, is crucial. There are times when we need to put ourselves first. When we allow ourselves the time and space to process and heal, we can show up as better and more authentic versions of ourselves, both for us and for the people in our lives.

Today is the fifteenth day of the twelfth month. The number fifteen is symbolic of manifested change. Transformations are underway, and tremendous shifts are taking place. Sea-changes are happening now. Much of this change is happening within, and it is some of the greatest change of all. Supporting this through healing work and going within on a regular basis, and through practices like journaling and meditation, are ways of honoring ourselves. This is some of the most important work we can do when we are on the ascension path. If we are choosing light, transformation, and healing, we are choosing to ascend or rise above what was before. Now is a tremendous opportunity for growth, and we are asked to make use of this window from now until the 21st, when the energies are strongest. The work continues after that, of course, as we can always rise up higher and elevate in every way, and we can always heal on deeper and deeper levels.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us thirteen, and four. Thirteen can indicate groundbreaking change and karmic clearing. It is also a number of manifestation that indicates new opportunities may be at hand. These opportunities can be linked to the inner work we are doing, and as karma clears and we are able to hold more light because of our healing, we magnetize opportunities to come to us and become more aligned to our life purpose and soul mission. We are asked to forgive anyone and everyone who has ever hurt us or wronged us in any way. As we do so, we are supporting the process of clearing karma. Forgiveness is a way of wiping the slate clean. As we release the baggage we were holding onto, we become lighter and free; this can come in the form of freedom through forgiveness. When we choose light, we are choosing to separate from what is not light. This choice and intention clears the path and makes way for us to forgive others and to clear and release karma with greater ease. We are asked now to lay down our burdens and to rise up like the phoenix, transmuting and transforming our energy through the fire of purification.

We are also asked to examine where change makes us uncomfortable, and why. In the why, there are healing lessons. Knowing where we need to heal is a great gift that allows us to make significant forward progress. Today we are guided strongly to monitor our thoughts and to stay focused on the positive, and also to be aware of our own energy. We can often feel when the energy shifts around us, and whether it is in a way that is helpful to us or not. This awareness is helpful to us in knowing when we need to more strongly protect our energy. We have sovereignty over ourselves and free will, and therefore have the ability to send any unwanted energies away from us. Visualizing ourselves surrounded in golden light can heal our energy and also strengthen it and provides us with powerful protection. Moving forward, not in fear—never in fear—but in love, strengthens our energy. Where we find fear, we are asked to envision its removal as we hold it out in front of us and surround it with a ball of golden light that transmutes it into something beautiful.

Mantra: I allow myself freedom through forgiveness. I choose love. I bless my energy with unconditional love, with grace, and with purified source energy. I bless my communications with truth, clarity, integrity, kindness, and compassion.

Today is the tenth day of the twelfth month. Ten symbolizes the end of a cycle and the subsequent beginning of a new one. We are poised at a significant place as we are reaching the end of a cycle that begins transitioning into the new in just a few days, with the 12/12 energetic portal. The eclipse that follows just a few days after that, on 12/14, brings a reset, and the 12/21 solstice flips the switch and signifies the beginning point of the momentum that begins building on that day, as we begin sailing into an increase in light. Now we are being asked to face wounds and traumas and do the work needed to clear and transmute them so we can begin, or continue, to heal. We are preparing now and continuing our preparations for the better that is to come. This work is key, as it makes room for improvements to enter our lives. We first have to clear away the underbrush before we can begin building the new, stronger foundation. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields eight. This number calls us back to our eternal nature and asks us to tap into our divinity, where we can draw from a sense of powerful worthiness, limitless strength, and a magnificent connection to the infinite intelligence of the universe. We can reach, through this place, a divine knowing. We are strongly encouraged to go within to reach this place, to connect with who we truly are: this is the Source within. The answers we seek are within us, and no one can guide us like we can guide ourselves. Finding this place can be a journey, but it is one that changes everything, and it is a journey well worth taking. Simply spending twenty minutes breathing and clearing your mind makes space for any messages to come to you. The messages that come from a divine place are different from the mental chatter; you will be able to better distinguish these over time and with practice. It is also important to be aware that we are clearing energetic dross, which may rise to the surface and make itself known so it can be cleared, released, and transmuted. We are guided to let go with love and compassion.

This very important work yields magnificent gifts. Through this daily practice, we become more attuned, can do deep inner healing, receive energetic upgrades, strengthen our energy and our connection to the divine, and open our clairgifts. When we strengthen our energy, we are also forging stronger protections around us. This also helps us to receive messages that are meant for us with greater clarity and accuracy, and to be guided down the path that is truly meant for us—the one that we are meant for—in this lifetime. 

Mantra: I am connected to my inner Source and strengthen my knowing of the divinity within. My path and purpose are clear, and I always perceive with clarity.

Today is the ninth day of the twelfth month. Nine is a number of integrity, freedom, expansion, and rising up into a higher perspective. It can also guide us to consider our true path and purpose on a soul level for this lifetime and seek to elevate ourselves in every way. The repeating themes you have noticed throughout your life can provide significant clues that help you to understand both why you are here and what may need your attention so you can that you can clear and heal these aspects and reach greater understandings from them. Nine is also associated with helping others and is a number of the lightworker. What brings us joy may also bring joy—and healing or inspiration—to others. What we love to do may be where we find our greatest and truest purpose, our life path and soul mission for this lifetime. Seeing ourselves as eternal beings can help us to rise up into a higher perspective and gain clarity on many things.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields sixteen, and then seven. Sixteen indicates that harmony is manifesting in your life, and you can expect to see new developments and perhaps opportunities arising that bring greater harmony and balance. Seven is a number of good fortune that aligns with the awakening and expansion of spiritual gifts and abilities, and also connects to wisdom, learning, and the intellect. We may feel guided to begin exploring new paths; these paths could lead us to greater discoveries and could open up a new world of possibilities. Seven is also associated with faith, persistence, and inner strength. New, unexpected opportunities may be coming your way, and you could also be headed for rapid growth and expansion in many areas of your life. 

As we ground more strongly in faith and in the knowing that everything is working out for our highest good, we magnetize the good to us, allowing those new opportunities to come flooding in the more we open to them and release resistance, which can come in the form of lack of belief or doubt. Grounding in our inner strength and protecting our energy may also be important now, especially as we continue on the healing path. Calling on our allies and asking for their assistance in transmuting the energies around us for our highest good can be beneficial, as is calling in more light to replace what we are healing, clearing, and transmuting. Today, we are guided to breathe with intention, visualizing golden light filling the lungs and moving down into the body from crown to root, then expanding out into the energy field, creating a strong sphere of protection around the entire aura, including the front, back, several feet below the feet, and several feet above the head.

Mantra: I welcome new opportunities to flow to me as I strengthen in my knowing that everything is working out for my highest good. I welcome expansion and new understandings as I elevate in every area of my life.

Today is the twenty-third day of the eleventh month. Twenty-three can indicate balance, partnerships, collaborations, and the manifestations that come from our work with others. Even when we are not working with other people on something in particular, we are always co-creating with our higher self, nonphysical allies, and universal forces. Anytime we desire something new, we set forth the intention, and the energy, that starts building the momentum to draw it to us. In this process, universal forces are hard at work assembling the cooperative components, an unseen collaboration that is always at hand.

This week, we are guided to reach a place of no-thought, whether through meditation, stillness, or sitting in quiet contemplation. We will find great benefit from resting our minds from the constant chatter and noise that tends to surround us and that can permeate the mind. In the still place within, we hold a gentle power that is sourced from pure love. This power is like water—it can flow softly or roar with an impact that can topple buildings. Though it is amorphous and gentle, it can carve marble simply through patience and persistence. We can accomplish all that we desire when we flow like water—softly, gently, a stream of love flowing from an endless source.

When we lean into love, not only self-love but love for all creatures and all of humanity, love for all beings, we come closer to the source of who we truly are. This allows us to reach ever-greater heights and soar above our current circumstances to discover the greater aspects of our lives and any situations we may be asking about. We are asked to take the bird’s-eye view today and examine what changes we can make that will benefit us. The two and three in today’s date add up to five, a number that brings aspects of change, growth, healing, expansion, life lessons, and choices. Finding that still place within will allow solutions for positive change to flow to us easily. When we reach this place, we are in the receiving mode, where we allow all good things to come to us.

Mantra: In finding the still place within, I discover myself. In discovering myself, I understand unconditional love. In understanding unconditional love, I know the oneness of all.

Protecting Your Energy

When we consider that everything is energy, including ourselves, it gives us an understanding of how easy it is to be affected by the things we read, the conversations we hear, and the potential impact of the invisible world around us. Because we are energy, we can also absorb energy. And although we cannot see it in the form of feelings, thoughts, and emotions, these energies are very real and a crucial part of the fabric that weaves our reality together. It almost goes without saying that it is important to protect our energy. Even more so in times of difficulty or adjustment, and especially during periods of upheaval and massive global shifts like we are experiencing now. If you are sensitive to energy, the need to protect yourself multiplies.

I recommend clearing your energy field during meditation on a daily basis and anytime you begin feeling heavy or weighed down. When we absorb energies that do not belong to us, we can experience this as anxiety or sadness or anger, or any emotion that seems to arrive out of the blue. We may also start feeling uncomfortable but cannot pinpoint exactly why, and this could be because we have picked up on something that is not our own. It is so important for our mental and emotional health that we clear anything that does not belong to us and keep our field clear by putting up a protective barrier that we reinforce on a regular basis to shield us against anything that is not for our highest good.

There are several ways to create this barrier. One powerful method is through visualization. You can enter a quiet, reflective space with no distractions around you and visualize an energetic forcefield surrounding you past the outer layer of your aura. Try visualizing this as a sphere with a strong external layer like a thick shell that surrounds you and fills your aura with golden light. Gold is a high-vibrational color that can strengthen your protection and bring you healing and peace. You can set the intention that the only energies that may enter your field are those that are for your highest good, and nothing else may enter. As you make this visualization part of your daily practice, you solidify the barrier more and more with your belief and intention, and in the process, you become better at visualization, which, like many things, improves with practice.

Just as we engage in rituals of physical cleanliness on a regular basis, protecting our energy is an important part of self-care that ensures our energetic cleanliness. In this way, we can make sure we are always our best (and truest) selves as we navigate through life and interact in our relationships, in our careers, and in the way we show up in the world.

Sending Peace and Healing to the World: A Meditation

Soul Cards by Kristine Fredheim

Now more than ever, it is important for us to focus on healing. Everyone, including light workers, has an obligation to do the inner work, to heal ourselves first, before we show up for anyone else, and to notice, on an ongoing basis, what comes to the surface to be processed and cleared, to be acknowledged and healed. It is so important that when we are done processing and clearing, we invite the energies we wish to embody, such as peace, healing, and divine light, or whatever it is we need. Compassion is something that is so needed right now and, like any other energy we invite in, we can set the intention of integrating it into our field. There are many ways to do this, but here is one meditation that works for me. Of course, you can adjust it as you like.

To begin, go to a quiet space where you will have privacy (away from distractions and furry friends). To enter the meditative space, sit comfortably with your eyes closed and focus on your breath. Breathe deeply and envision your energy field as a sphere that surrounds you past the outer layer of your aura, which extends past the tips of your fingers when you have your arms outstretched. Breathe in light, then exhale it into your field. Do this for as long as you need to fill your energy field entirely with light. Then imagine this sphere of energy surrounded with a layer of protection. You can set the intention that this protective layer allows in only energies that serve your highest good, and that all else immediately bounces off and is returned to sender via Source. I recommend re-energizing and strengthening this boundary every day.

Once you feel your protective layer is stabilized, you can envision low-vibrational energies and energies that do not serve your highest good clearing and releasing. If specific situations come to mind, know that they are rising to the surface to be released. Notice any energy you feel. You can release unwanted energies by naming them specifically; for example, you can say (to yourself is fine) something like, “I clear and release all energies of anxiety.” Or, “I release this situation with love. It is no longer part of my energy and it is now cleared and transmuted.” If you can feel energy, you may feel a physical sensation of something lifting from you each time you do this. You can call on your allies to support as you go through the energies and situations one at a time and ask that they transmute the energy into the highest form of light. When you feel clear, you can invite the energies of healing, peace, divine light, and compassion, or any energies you choose, and set the intention that they integrate into your field (your allies will help with this).

Once you feel the energy is stable, you can begin to send healing to the planet by envisioning, setting the intention, or asking your allies to release all energies from the planet that do not serve the highest good of humanity and ask that they are transmuted into the highest possible form of light. You can then send peace, healing, and compassion to everyone around the world. I like to envision this as light surrounding the entire globe that sends the energy to everyone who is willing to receive it. You can ask your allies, the universal forces, the angels, Source, or whomever you feel guided to call on to support you in sending out and integrating this energy.

One type of healing that is so needed right now is ancestral. When we enter into a physical body, we also enter into a family lineage whose past experiences are encoded into our DNA. With that lineage comes family karma. We can set the intention to clear and release family karma and clear ancestral energies that do not serve our highest good, and to clear the energies that are ready to be released, that do not have any place on the planet, that are holding us back from elevating into our highest path and potential, and that are keeping us from living in alignment and in our highest truth. Archangel Michael is a powerful ally to call on when performing this type of clearing, but of course, you can call on any allies you wish. Doing this work in the meditative space helps to focus the mind and our efforts so that we can draw on our power to release these energies from ourselves and from the planet for good as we welcome in healing, unity, and compassion.

We are all one, and the more we realize that we are all in this together as spiritual beings experiencing a human existence, the more we will be able to heal and make powerful forward progress, so that we can expand and grow as individuals and as a collective. When we look at others through this lens of oneness, we experience life differently. We have more compassion and are more willing to help others because we understand that the good of one is the good of all.
