The way my body is learning to let go

I have a love/fear relationship with the fall season. Somewhere along the way, I release my grip on what I should be feeling and just surrender, usually exhausted. Only then do I begin the slow and deliberate walk the path to loving what is.

Nature is showing me how this is done with grace.

I watch the breeze sway the trees from side to side. I notice how the trees effortlessly release what they no longer need. A wise woman once told me that it is easy to love a flower in the summertime but it is hard to love a bare tree bark; there are no decorations, no distractions. Under all the layers, I am the naked tree trunk.

The fall is like this for me. This is when the consistent practice of self-love becomes even more important. Each day, I am invited to tend to my body, stay vulnerable and aware, and listen to what my nakedness has the potential to reveal about me. #believeinyoursacred #seasonaldepression #fallishere #nature #is #graceful #vulnerability #distractions #selflove #acceptance #release #resistance #surrender #to #what #is #revelations #empowerment6 days agoDownload

When did baths get such a bad rep? Baths are cleansing. Baths are reinvigorating. Baths are isolating so you can listen to the song of your soul, so you can receive the wisdom, guidance and healing that your body and mind needs. And most of all, baths are easy and require minimal ingredients aside from a bath tub, water, salts and the intension to cleanse and release.

Indulgence isn’t self care, at least not to me. Self care is rest. Self care is solitude. Self care is reaching out. Self care is listening to the voice that is guiding you to walk your authentic path, speak your truth and ask for what you need because you are worthy.

You are worthy. Say these words out loud to yourself. I am worthy of all this love. #believeinyoursacred #selfworth #iamworthy #worthy #selfcare #selflove #cleanse #release #mindfulness16 days agoDownload
On Saturday, I was visited by 2 different praying mantis in two separate locations. I have NEVER seen a praying mantis up close, I should add so this was definitely out of the ordinary.

The praying mantis spends a lot of time being still and quiet, reminding me that only with a calm and tranquil mind can I truly focus on my intensions and the steps I need to take to make them happen. By being still and aware, I can receive the guidance with acceptance and openness. Divine timing has been teaching me to be patient and wait for the opportunity to come forth so that I may step into my next creation.

I spent the weekend in Philadelphia with some good friends and held a moon ceremony with five other sisters. We shared our struggles and the steps we can take to maintain balance and harmony in our life. We gave each other permission to let go of behavior and beliefs that have reached their expiration date. We talked about the importance of rest and slowing down; by sitting in receptive mode, we can truly receive the guidance and wisdom that we need. Nature is showing us how to bring ourselves into a state of balance by doing a little less and being with the moment a little more. Grief and fear of change came up and we agreed how important self-care and self-love can be in a time of uncertainty. Stick to what feels good, we all agreed. Keep meditating, doing belly breaths, stretching and doing yoga, taking baths, drawing, journaling, and laughing as much as possible. Anything that keeps your energy light and playful! #unexpectedvisitor #newmooninlibra #newmoonritual #animaltotemspirit #syncronicity #still #quiet #guidance #awareness #divinetiming #intentions #doingless #beingmore #meditation #yoga #bellybreathing #keep #your #energy #light #and #playful17 days agoDownload
I feel a great change is coming. There is a slow simmer on my burner and a savory delightful smell is filling up my kitchen. I feel an expansiveness in me yet I cannot see it clearly. It is not a frightening sensation but a deeply loving and awakening presence.

I know that I am here for a purpose: to create an experience that inspires, moves energy and heals. Reiki is a tool for my own healing that has connected me to this vision. It has brought so much kindness and self-love into my life. It has been the kindest, most loving gesture that I have ever made. Everyday, this healing energy confirms my connection to Source and my work as an extension of that Divine connection.

Part of me enjoys being and collaborating with others. This is how I grow and evolve. This is how I meet my teachers. This is also how I connect to the teacher in me. Part of me really thrives being on my own, connecting to the Sacred in my everyday and communing with my soul. As it’s devoted messenger, I trust what I receive. I know that solitude and self-love is essential for my grounding and alignment so that I can fully recognize what is being transmitted. I love sitting with my thoughts and feelings and drafting them for others to connect to and experience, even though the message has always, always been for me.

I want to express love and affirmation to all the corners of the world. I want everyone to know how truly beautiful and inspiring they are, what potential sits in their hearts and the dreams that are waiting to be revealed. The guides of my journey helped me to self-actualize and I want to do that for others. It’s my paternal grandmother who first taught me how to give energy to plants by moving my hand over them in clockwise spirals. It’s what Elizabeth Gilbert did for me with her Super Soul lecture, The Curiosity Driven Life. It’s the door that Rob Bell opened for me in his ‘Robcast’ podcast. It’s the sermons and the stories of Michael Beckwith, Iyanlan Vanzent and Michelle Obama that have helped me to realize my own potential and how everything that has happened, both joyful and difficult, have been a kind reminder of who I am and how I’m here to serve... 👇👇👇(see comments)21 days agoDownload
This new season brings both new transitions and new beginnings. I am opening a new chapter and working creatively with forces and elements that call this season into being.

How I love Autumn! Today is a new reason to smile. I am excited to see with a fresh, grounded perspective and ready to absorb what awaits me, ready to call a new balance into manifestation. The Libra season asks me to step into alignment by balancing the polarities within but also by balancing my needs with the needs of those I hold dear to my heart.

I am setting aside time to be with me. I am holding space to nurture me. If I am not paying attention to my own ship’s mast as it sails the ocean, I am certainly not in capacity to help anyone else. I check with my heart daily to remind her that I am here, that I am living my life through her clear guidance. My heart is a powerful resource that continuously supports and nourishes me. I am listening and paying close attention to the unfolding details of my life without needing to push or control. I am trusting all that is being revealed about my greater purpose and the next step that I am to take.

I am feeling aligned, harmonious and aware.

I know that my happiness is a choice and that I get to decide where my attention goes. I can also allow myself to feel other emotions that are helping me to release the weight and lighten the energetic density of my experience. I am consistently integrating all the parts of me, parts that feel good and parts that have suffered in the past. The present is a magical, expansive place that I can step into to connect to my innate power and abilities. I am always receiving guidance and confirmation of my divinity and connection to All That Is.

When I smile, I feel my frequency rise.

When I breath deeply, I feel the sacred all around me. I feel the life that is celebrating it’s very essence: being alive is an expression of the Sacred. If I tune to this frequency, I start to hear a loving chorus of birds and insects mixed with city noises that feel like the Universe is giggling. Concrete is just as sacred as the forest. It doesn’t matter where I stand, I can feel the vibration of Mother Earth calling me. 👇👇👇24 days agoDownload
The need to be right
The need to have the last word
The need to seem busy
The need to check my smartphone
The need to control
The need to compete and compare
The need to be praised
The need to fit in
The need to be productive

These are all the cravings or addictions that I have worked to address. These are not only distractions from living my authentic life but they continue to tell the lie that I am unworthy, that I have to strive to someone else’s standards, that I have to constantly maintain a disguise that everything is fine and that I have everything under control.

THIS IS A LIE WE ARE TOLD OVER AND OVER AGAIN

As children we don’t know better so we absorb it until it becomes our belief system, until it’s part of our habitual and behavioral reality.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Quiet the craving and you will begin to hear a voice that will never lie to you: your heart. Whenever you are upset or frustrated, go into a quiet space. Take a few deep breaths to calm your nervous system. Touch your heart and ask for guidance and you will never be steered in any other direction but love and acceptance. But it won’t be cheap silly self-talk. Oh no.

YOU WILL FEEL THE STRENGTH OF YOUR HEART IN THIS VOICE.
YOU WILL FEEL THE POWER THAT IS YOUR MAGNIFICENCE AND RESILIENCE.
YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE AND YOU WILL NEVER, EVER DOUBT YOURSELF AGAIN.#believeinyoursacred #carolinemyss #cravings #externalvalidation #beliefsystem #lies #we #are #told #that #get #us #nowhere #reality #chooseyourvibration #quietbreath #heart #heartcentered #guidance #divine #divineguidance #divineconsciousnessa month agoDownload
My sense of worth is a reflection of my beliefs.

For many years, I assumed that my anxiety about money was related to the experience of immigration from the Soviet Union in 1989 with little to no money. Our first few months were hard and we learned to make do with what we had. I saw my frugality and resourcefulness as being an extension of my immigrant state of mind, one that could make something out of nothing; I was proud to stand in contrast to the frivolous spending and overconsumption that I saw everywhere in mainstream American culture.

But recently, it occurred to me that my belief system about money and worth did not start with me.

My ancestors were presented with a life that they had little control of. The times that they lived in were brutal and the ideology of their government believed that human life was worthless and enacted policies that degraded and mistreated the general population. My ancestors did the best they could under awful conditions: they raised their children from little means, instructed them to get an education, instilled a work ethic and stressed the importance of being useful in the world even if some of them (especially my Jewish side) were treated like second class citizens.

But the underlying belief system that they absorbed from collective ideology was that they were not worthy (of rest, of praise, of self-love, of gentleness because those things were not practical and being practical helped one to survive). They passed this belief system to their children and their children passed it to their children and so forth. It is easy to see how remnants of generational trauma has seeped itself into my life and unless I gather, assess and heal these fragmented remnants of my psyche, I will, without a doubt, pass this belief system onto my daughter.

As a child, I accepted this sense of unworthiness without question. When I grew up, it became second nature to push through my difficult circumstances like a bull through red cloth because I did not believe that I was worthy of a break. 👇👇👇👇a month agoDownload

For the past year, I have committed to hosting ceremonies around the moon. This practice has enhanced my life tremendously. It has made me aware of how I am healing individually and alongside the collective. These rituals have helped me to pay attention to my feelings in a healing, loving way and to set intensions to release what is no longer serving me or invite the new and expansive.

On Friday, I held a full moon ceremony in Prospect Park where I was offered great guidance and clarity. I offer these gifts to whoever resonates with them: 💫THE TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE, BELOVED, IS IN EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR LIFE! 💫YOU ARE DIVINITY INCARNATE 💫YOU ARE BRAVE in all that you do 💫YOU ARE EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING IS YOU 💫YOU ARE DEEPLY, DEEPLY LOVED 💫TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF. YOU ARE HEALING.

Here is the full moon in Pisces tarot spread. Take a moment and reflect on how your own life translates in these cards:
(Past) The Judgement card-forgiveness & release
(Present) The Fool card-Ascension/growth, the next floor up!
(Future) The Hierophant card-collaborations/partnerships, box of unlimited potential, abundance.#believeinyoursacred #pemachodron #fullmooninpisces #piscesfullmoon #guidance #clarity #ascension #ritual #ceremony #healing #collectivehealing #intension #fullmoon #tarotcards #thefountaintarot #crystalgrida month agoDownload
