Life’s Blessings

The scent of frankincense is infused in the air, and beside me there is a note, a deck of cards, a bar of wrapped soap, and an unfolded indigo cloth with the hand-stitched words, “inner truth healing.” A phone also sits beside me, holding a message that reads like a miracle.

I am blessed. It is a day where this knowing is infused into every cell of my being. The tears, for now, have been wiped free from my eyes, but my heart still sings with love and joy. There is, within me, the knowing that the heart is woven with the threads of every heart. The gift of Truth permeates the tangible packages beside me.

The angel cards were gifted to me this morning. “I found these at a thrift store and thought of you,” my friend said as she handed me the box.

The First Gift of the Day

One learns in these moments that although a present can be beautiful, the energy it holds is where the true gift resides. To have taken the time to think of someone else and know that what you have found for them is a mirror of their truth is a gesture of love. The recipient cannot help but feel it.

The second gift arrived from Abudhabi, wrapped in a brown envelope. I tore the ends to release more magic in the form of camel’s milk soap infused with frankincense, a folded indigo cloth with white, hand-stitched words, and a note. By then I was over-come.

Of the cloth, my friend from Abudhabi wrote, “The embroidery I made for you is on a hand-woven, hand-dyed substrate — an indigo cloth…Indigo is a healing dye–and in Indonesia only women in midlife are allowed to handle it — it’s considered magical, mysterious, and powerful.”

I held the cloth to my heart and breathed deep. I could feel magic. I could feel love.

There is an indescribable joy that fills one’s being at moments like this. The knowing that one’s life is infused with love, as all life is, is a precious gift.

I am blessed.

Gratitude fills my heart.

Thank you.

Guest writer: Alethea Kehas – A girl named Truth

I’m a guest writer on Sue Vincent’s blog today. Thank you, Sue. ❤

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Truth

open the room of my mind
search for me
within faded

doubt
listen to words

My birth
There was once a girl named
Alethea

her heart sparked with truth

My mother always told me she found my name, Alethea, in a book. In my child-mind I created a tome perfumed with age, adding gilded pages over the years. Sometimes I imagined stories, filled with strong and beautiful goddesses, and smiled with the thought that I was held inside.

“It’s Greek,” my mother told me, “for truth.”

When I opened the book inside the room of my mind, I watched the pages unfold like the wings of a butterfly, and waited for a girl named for truth to manifest into form.

I never doubted the existence of this book, until one winter afternoon when I was thirty-six. That day, alone in my New Hampshire home, I cupped a phone…

The Weight of Cells

img_1390

I woke at 3am with my mind playing back a phrase that came to me several months ago during a meditation, Every cell has a weight and a memory. Instead of falling back to sleep, I kept thinking about this statement and how important it is in terms of healing the body. Even when the mind chooses not to remember, the body does.

Cells, by their very nature, are programed to remember. It is how they survive, dividing and propagating themselves through generations upon generations to carry out their designated functions, yet we don’t always think about the emotional weight that our bodies carry.

You may have heard stories about transplant patients who suddenly develop cravings for foods they never liked before. There are also cases where personalities have radically changed, particularly after a heart transplant. It may sound crazy on the surface, but it makes sense. Cells, by their very nature, are programed to remember, even when the mind chooses to forget. They do it to survive and thrive, but sometimes, when the weight of the memory they carry is too heavy, they turn sluggish and lethargic. Over time, disease can set it.

Pause in reading this, and close your eyes. Allow your body to show you where it is holding density. For some of you it might be obvious, you may have an excess of physical weight in one area more than another, or you might have a persistent ache or pain. Go to these places and ask them to remember the origin of their density.

Let me give you an example in myself. Although I am relatively slender, my body holds extra density in my belly, in particular in the abdominal areas of my 2nd and 3rd chakras. This is where, as a young child, I started burying my emotions. Having no real outlet for emotional release, I swallowed my turmoil, and as a result I often had frequent pains in my abdominal region. As an adult, I had chronic IBS for two years, and I would wake in the wee hours of the morning with a bloated belly filled with pain. When I began listening to my body, and allowing the stories it had stored to surface, along with the emotional weight they carried, I began to heal, and the bloating decreased along with the pain.

In my early twenties, I was diagnosed with thyroid disease. Although I do not have the physical weight of a goiter in my throat, I have the energetic density of hypothyroidism. In my 5th chakra, therefore, there is energetic density. Although my thyroid is gradually regaining health, when I enter this space of my body, I can feel its weight. There are emotions stored here, waiting to be released. My cells not only carry my own memories of  my voice and truth being silenced with physical and verbal restraints, they carry generations inside of their DNA. Thyroid disease runs in my family, as it often does. Proof, I believe, that cells carry memories. How can they not?

Why would one person get a disease and not another? Chance? I don’t tend to give much credence to chance. If you dig deep enough, you can likely find a cause; an origin. We can ask the same question another way. Why do some people heal, and not others? The answers are similar in either case. The weight of memory.

A healthy, vibrant cell does not get diseased. It thrives, and carries out the function for which it is designed. Destiny, though, is subject to events. The cell exposed to trauma suffers. It mutates, or fails to replicate in perfect form. Sometimes it dies before it can divide. Physical trauma to the cell will compromise its health, but so will emotional. When we receive a cut, we apply pressure to the source of the bleed. We try to stem the flow of loss. What happens, though, to the body that suffers emotional trauma? It grows dense with the weight it is trying to release.

The body is always striving to find balance, yet many of us are unwilling to listen to its memories. Its not always pleasant to stop and listen to our bodies. What they have to tell us is often of a memory we have tried to ignore or forget. Like a child, the body yearns to be heard and understood. When we allow this occur, we start to heal density and the discomfort it creates. We shed the weight of repression as we release the trapped stories. Health returns as the energy of the cells spin more freely, and we feel lighter and more vibrant.

Sometimes the stories aren’t ours, but we’ve agree to harbor them in our bodies. Memories passed down through DNA, or through the empathic matrix of one being to another. Listen. Allow. Remember. Release. Heal. The body, like the soul, is always trying to find the light inside the story.

Simple Ways to Save Our Home

sky-earth-galaxy-universe

Earth: Our Beautiful Home. Photo credit: Pexels.com

I am a passionate advocate for this planet, although I will also be the first to admit I can always do more to preserve and protect its health.  We almost always have a choice when it comes to our actions and how they may positively or negatively impact the environment that sustains us. Earth, the planet we all call our home, is not a luxury. There is no planet B, and there is no disputing the fact that our planet is in peril, and has been for too long of a time.

Remember, if the planet suffers, so do we. One need only think of the increase in global catastrophes, our inability to provide adequate nutrition for 12.9 % of the human population (source: https://www.wfp.org/hunger/stats) and the 1 in 8 people who do not have access to clean water (source: water.org). Since the current administration for America lacks the foresight to see this, I believe it is imperative that we act on a local and individual level to preserve, protect and repair our shared home. The individual always has great power, let us not forget this. Here are a few conscious choices we can make to benefit the health of our planet, and also ourselves:

  • Eat locally produced and organically grown foods (your body will thank you, and so will the planet)
  • Forgo unnecessary/luxury purchases (instead of buying that pair of shoes you really don’t need, use the money to buy healthier products for your body)
  • Use or make eco-friendly products (be a smart consumer, check your labels and research the list of ingredients)
  • Air-dry your laundry (It’s easier than you might think. I use my dryer maybe 10x a year)
  • Buy bulk and use reusable containers for packaging food, water, etc.
  • Stop buying bottled water and invest in a nice canteen
  • Use reusable bags for all of our purchases, most stores even give you money back when you bring your own bags
  • Recycle and compost your waste (think about where that waste ends up if you don’t)
  • Use public transportation, bike, walk, and carpool when possible
  • When looking for a new vehicle, buy the most fuel-effiecnt choice. (I love my Chevy Volt)
  • Invest in clean, renewable energy for your home and community. Solar is becoming easier and affordable for the homeowner
  • Buy recycled products and second-hand when it’s an option
  • When it’s time for a new appliance, research and opt for the most energy-efficient one (your wallet will also thank you)
  • Turn the heat down and the lights off when you leave a space
  • Live life with gratitude. A grateful heart has a ripple effect, and those around you will feel it, as well as the Earth.
  • Grow your own food (or some of your food), and use your own compost to fertilize it
  • Conserve resources, such as water and fuel, and teach your children to do the same
  • Use green building materials for your home (do a little research when it’s time to build or remodel, there are so many eco-friendly alternatives)
  • Forgo the chemicals for natural ingredients (again, do a little research, Nature provides wonderful alternatives to cancer-causing toxic chemicals)
  • Please, please, don’t fertile your lawn with those cancer-causing chemicals that harm you, the planet and the insects that pollinate the food you eat). Embrace the beauty of a natural lawn, or forgo the lawn altogether and planet trees or a garden
  • Invest in organizations that are helping to preserve and protect the health of our planet (and applaud their efforts to make such an important cause their focus. Remember, there is no Planet B).

With that note, I’d like to remind you, that through the month of February, I am offering energy healing sessions and intuitive readings in exchange for donations made to environmental causes. For more information please visit my website: https://aletheakehas.com/inner-truth-healing/
