Guided Meditation to Heal Heartache

“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it’s been broken into a million pieces.” 
~ Robert James Waller

“What happens when people open their hearts?”
“They get better.” 
~ Haruki Murakami

The energies of this week are all about forgiveness and opening our hearts, and throughout December they support joyful connection, gratitude and time spent on important relationships.

But what do you do when your heart is hurting? When you want to open up your heart but it’s bruised and battered and your faith in love and life is in tatters? Or when your heart is grieving the loss of loved ones, or time past?

I have a little guided meditation that might help. It’s one I recorded a while ago, but it’s perfect for the energies right now. It takes sixteen minutes, but I would suggest allowing extra time at the end for you to integrate the energy of the meditation.

All you need to do is find a spot to sit or lie quietly, and then follow along to the sound of my voice.  Feel free to hold a crystal of your choice if that feels right for you.

When you’re ready just click on the play button below:

 

You are beautiful, worthy and lovable just as you are.

You can heal, and you can know love. Love is your pure nature. It is what we have come from and the energy to which we will return.

Holding space for you to move back into an energy of flow, peace and light,

Nicole   xx

~ Annie Dillard

October Stones – A New Competition For You

Creativity takes courage ~ Henri Matisse

 

Hello Lovelies

Every day in October I am meditating with these two stones – stones that feel comfortable as I hold them in my hands, stones which are being infused with the energy of my love, intentions and meditations. At the end of October, I shall give them away to a reader, along with a personalised guided meditation made just for the winner.

Let me introduce you to these two stones. The first stone is basalt with seams of milk quartz and it holds the energies of the ocean and the earth. It is an anchoring stone, and it comes from Belongil Beach in Byron Bay, which is a place of great healing and transformation.

The energies and intention infused into the Byron Bay Beach Rock are that the holder comes to know a true sense of creative direction and that inspiration and imagination become gifts to lift you out of stuckness and back into flow.

This beach stone is the Anchoring Stone, which helps us to stay grounded, clear and calm, connecting into our bodies, and to the earth and nature. It’s a nurturing and comforting stone, and holding it brings me to a state of profound inner quiet.

 

The second is a Lemurian Singing Quartz, from the wilds of Tasmania. It’s a very strong energy stone with deep ridges along its sides that can be stroked during meditation. This activates the stone just the way you’d open a filing cabinet to access the files inside. Holding this stone makes me feel hopeful, positive and alive! The Quartz is the Connection Stone, enabling us to connect into our intuition, Higher Self, Guides, Ancestors and the Divine. My intention is that this Singing Quartz helps you to hear your inner voice and to access your creative gifts. It supports imagination, clear vision and passion for life.

Used together in meditation these stones will help you to find your inner creative energy, and remove blocks to self-expression and flow of ideas and art.

September Stones – last call for entries!

“When you leave a beautiful place, you carry it with you wherever you go.” ~ Alexandra Stoddard

 

Hi Lovelies,

Reblogging this as the last call for entries on the September Stones!

Love lots,
Nicole and Cauldrons and Cupcakes Team

***

Every day in September I am meditating with these two stones.

The stones are intended to be held, one in each hand, as you sit in meditation. I’ll be giving these stones away, as well as recording a personalised guided meditation for the winner!

 As I hold these stones in my hand each day for the month of September I meditate with the intent that they will hold energies in a way that can be transferred to the user.

The first stone is Morion, from the wild West Coast of Tasmania. It is this month’s Anchoring Stone and its energies help us to stay grounded, clear and calm, connecting into our bodies, and to the earth and nature.

Morion is a very dark form of Smoky Quartz – the crystal is so dark that it is almost black. It helps us to feel safe in ourselves, safe in our bodies, emotionally stable and deeply grounded. It pulls our scattered energy back to us, helping us to become strong and clear.

My intention is that this stone will help you to clear deep-seated grief and sadness, allowing your heart to open and heal. It’s a powerful stone for connecting with the energies of the earth, trees, stars and the moon. It promotes intuition, imagination and story-telling ability.

 

The second stone is the Connection Stone, and this one is a Ruby in Fuchsite. Connection stones connect us to Universal energy, as well as to Angels, Guides, Ancestors and our own wise soul energy.

This stone feels like a magical garden or a lake full of waterlillies. Just holding it is reassuring and it quickly centers you into your heart.

My intention in my meditation with this stone is that it provides a restful energy in your life that promotes emotional contentment, inner peace and heart connection. It’s a stone for love, happiness and knowing what you want in the world.

Isn’t it lovely!

When you hold these stones in your own meditation it will help to take you to a happy place – one that is restful, restorative and that will help you connect into personal clarity and inner harmony and peace.

We all need more time in our happy place, and these meditation stones will take you there!

What’s your happy place? Is it a real place, or a place you go to in your head? Do you have more than one? What happens to you when you are in that place? Let us know for a chance to win these stones!
