Releasing the Past Guided Visualization

If you are ready to embark on a new chapter or are feeling held back by a person or a younger version of yourself (mistakes made or bad choices you associate with your younger self), then this guided meditation will help you release the past and one forward.

Before you start, think about the direction you want to move forward in or the new path you want to embark on. Then pause and think of stories from your life that you feel might be holding you back.

As the meditation begins, I guide you to choose a person or situation to release.

You will then be guided to forgive this person for not being the person you wanted them to be. Again, this might be a different person or a younger version of yourself.

This is a powerful thing to do. It can help with a particularly hard person or situation to forgive.

It helps you realize that we all have our own intentions and expectations at different times in our lives.

You will then be guided to release the situation connecting you to this person or your younger self.

This is incredibly healing.

After this, it might be nice to journal your feelings, or how you want to move forward now that you are free of this person or the past.

You also might like to stomp your feet to continue this sense of release.

Remember to do this, again and again, any time you need to forgive or move forward so you can become a better version of your self and create a life you love.

I originally did this in my Facebook group and everyone had an amazing experience.

Enjoy. Forgive. Release. Move Forward!

For some of you, this might be exhausting and draining. If that is the case, make sure you rest and drink lots of water after doing this visualization.

How To Clear Your Aura – a mini-yoga sequence

Did you know that there is an energy field around your body called your aura? Have you ever wondered how to clear your aura? Today I am sharing a mini-yoga sequence that will do just that!

I started doing this sequence midday to help move my body and feel like I was releasing stress and other people’s energy that I had picked up.

Now I use it a few times a day and imagine that it clears my aura with each movement.

Do you ever feel cruddy, off, annoyed, or upset out of nowhere and wonder why?

A lot of times it can come from things that you did like going on social media or a phone call that triggers something or stirs something up you haven’t felt in a while.

Another reason this happens is that you pick up energy from other people like negativity, anxiety, or sadness.

If this sounds familiar, I want you to picture yourself walking around with a white bubble of an aura around you during the day. What do you think that looks like at the end of a day like this?

I imagine that it is all stuck in my aura, making me feel yucky, and I need to get rid of it before I let it get me down or before I go to bed.

This sequence is great at any time of day. Imagine the movements clear the energetic space around you. Afterward, imagine a shiny, sparkly, white aura all around you filled with love and positivity.

Enjoy!

Plus, moving your body this way helps release tension and tightness that you carry in your body so you should feel lighter and more relaxed after too.

p.s. Watch it all the way through the first time and then when you want to do it in the future fast-forward to the 2:25 mark.

Scorpio New Moon Card Spread & Ritual

Happy New Moon in Scorpio! I love setting intentions on New Moons and sometimes it is nice to tap into the energy of the current sign.

Scorpio is a Water sign that is often associated with intensity, magnetism, mysterious, shadow-side, loyalty, sexiness, possessiveness, power, bravery.

I created a card spread to help you bring the positive aspects of this sign into your life.

If tarot or oracle cards are not your thing, then this is more of an intuitive journal challenge.

Here’s how this works:

Supplies: card deck (optional), journal, pen or pencil

  1. Find a quiet place where you can dedicate a little bit of time to this activity and yourself.
  2. Light a candle or incense, burn some sage or turn on an essential oil diffuser.
  3. Set the intention that this time is for introspection that will help you move forward towards your desires.
  4. Ask for guidance from God/Universe/Spirit, Mother Earth, guides, angels, etc.
  5. Take 5 deep breaths. You can follow this with some Lunar Breathing if desired.
  6. Ask the following questions. If using cards, shuffle and either pick the card you are drawn to, the one on top or bottom, or the one that falls out. No cards? Then listen to your intuition and write down what pops in your head.

1. What has been going on under the surface for me lately?

2. Does something need to bubble up?

3. Where does it feel appropriate to have a bit of mystery right now?

4. How can I embrace my darker side during this lunar cycle?


Reflect on what has come up.

Set an intention related to question 4 during this next moon cycle.

Bust Through Blocks With Ego Eradicator Breath

If you are looking to bust through blocks in your life then Ego Eradicator Breath can help. This is a Kundalini Yoga Exercise that is very powerful.

What I mean by “blocks” are any mental and emotional patterns that are holding you back from moving forward in the direction you want to go.

Examples of different types of blocks are:

  • Being stuck in a pattern of thinking in which you have a hard time seeing the idea, item, or situation any other way. This can be like not seeing any way to earn more money, or feeling convinced that you will never fall in love (or fall in love again), or thinking that negative things ALWAYS happen to you.
  • Emotional blocks are often ways of acting that keep you repeating a pattern such as sabotaging your own work by being late regularly, or closing yourself off and pushing a partner away every time things get serious, or never planning ahead so that you miss important things in your life and blame it on others.

So often you do these things unconsciously. In your heart, you want more and you want to love differently but your ego is trying to keep you safe. Unchartered territory can seem scary.

When you feel like you are stuck in a rut (these are called samsakras in yoga – ooh, that is a whole other post), you can practice Ego Eradicator to help you get out of the rut and move forward. It works on an energetic level. You will understand what I mean after you practice the breath.

Ego Eradicator Breath

  • Begin sitting comfortably in a chair or on the floor in easy pose (legs crossed).
  • Lift your arms up to a 60-degree angle (see video). Keep your elbows straight and your shoulders relaxed.
  • Your fingertips will curl and rest on to the pads of your palms at the base of your fingers. Thumbs are stretched out.
  • Close your eyes and roll them in and up to focus on your third-eye or above your head.
  • Practice Breath of Fire. Take quick inhales and exhales of equal length. The area above the navel point naturally comes in on the exhale and releases on the inhale. You can watch this video here too.
  • Continue for 1 – 3 minutes. Or a few rounds if you are just starting out.
  • Finish by inhaling deeply and bringing your arms overhead to touch your thumbs together. Then open your fingers, exhale and relax your arms down. 

This breath is not recommended if you are pregnant or menstruating.

This breath is more like a meditation. It helps clear and strengthen your energetic field, your aura.

Ego Eradicator exercise is a great introduction noticing how your breath and body can help you release blocks and patterns that you have been holding onto so you can feel more energized and confident to move forward.

I talked about this breath in this blog post: Spiritual Tips for When a Family Member is in the Hospital.

Ego Eradicator breath helps strengthen your nervous system to respond to stress with greater ease, increases lung capacity, and is both relaxing and energizing.

I do this practice every day. In the morning when I wake up. When I feel stuck or frustrated during the day. At night when I want to get rid of all of the junk, I picked up from other people, news, etc.

Let me know in the comments what you think of this exercise!

1. What area of my life needs more balance and harmony? 

2. How can I bring more Libra energy to this area?

3. What is hidden that has kept this area out of whack?


Reflect on what has come up.

Set an intention to act on the answer to question 2 during this next moon cycle.
