Day Five

Focus- Heart Opening

Do not let anything that happens in life be important enough that you’re willing to close your heart over it.” ― Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

Affirmation: My heart is open and I allow the energy of love to flow through me.

Set Intention- share it with the group!

Meditation: Imagine two large, heavy doors opening in your chest. As they open a giant, endless rush of green light rushes through you. Imagine this light healing all your heart’s wounds and connecting you to all the love that exists in the world. Allow yourself to give and receive this loving energy freely. It is in constant flow between you and all that surrounds you.

Action: Practice silently saying, “I love you” in your head to everyone you meet today. Even strangers! Everyone has something about them worth loving. Everyone is worthy of being loves. When we choose love over fear before interacting with others, judgment takes a back burner and our heart remains open.

Journal: Make a list of all of the ways that you judge others. When you’re finished, go through each item on your list and find how it reflects a part of you that needs healing. What fears are causing you to make those judgements?

Bonus Meditation: Healing/Balancing of the Heart Chakra

Day Six

Focus- Inner Child

Affirmation: I am free to make my own choices and live my own life.

Set Intention- share it with the group!

Meditation: (By Louise Hay) visualize yourself as a little child. Look into your eyes and see that there is only one thing that little child wants from you. Love. Reach your arms out. Embrace that little child. Tell her how much you love her and admire her. Let her know that it’s okay to make mistakes. Tell her she is safe and that she doesn’t have to be afraid because you’ll never leave her side. Then imagine that little child shrinking down until she is just the right size to fit in your heart. Pick her up and put her there so that you can give her love whenever she needs it.

Action: Have FUN. PLAY. Express your emotions. Tap into your creativity. Do something that makes you feel like a little kid, again.

Journal:

Grab two different colored pens.

Dedicate one color to your dominant hand (your adult self)

Dedicate the other to your non-dominant hand (your inner child)

With your dominant hand write out these questions:

-          Where are you hurting?

-          What do you need?

-          How do you most want to be loved?

-          What dream do you want to come to life?

Answer these questions as your inner child, using the opposite color and your non-dominant hand.

Bonus Meditation: Healing the Inner Child

Day Seven

Focus- Rest and Reflect

Meditate: Tap into your body, mind and soul and reflect on this past week. Ask yourself how you are feeling. Sit with all that comes up. Don’t question it. Love, accept and appreciate all of it. Thank your highest self for showing you all you need to know.

Journal: Reflect on this past week and all the healing and self-care work that you did. What things came up? What things felt good? What things felt bad? What things do you want more of and what things would you like to do differently? What things were hard to face? How will you use what you learned moving forward?

Share with the group the biggest thing you realized and that you’re taking away from this week.
