Rising into Joy

 

Hey Deni Van here!

I love to have extra fun in my Facebook group, The Heartfelt Awakening Village, every chance I get. Today was special because we did some spontaneous angel card readings. I draw individual cards, then save them all to the side for an even bigger message as a whole at the end. Today’s message was pretty profound, I just had to share.

Here we go- Today’s message:

Time to go– the sun sets and rises each day and it’s the same with all the avenue of your life. Just like your life- things are changing.

See the beauty with in each sunset in your life and know that the sun will rise again tomorrow. Trust.

Endings are merely the start of new beginnings. So something is coming to an end, even if we don’t know what that may be. There might be some kind of uncertainty, doubts or even some nervousness about what is to come. When ever a door closes, we have a tendency to stare at that door. We think “oh my goodness this door closed, oh my gosh, oh my gosh” and we’re not open at all to the possibilities of other doors opening. Remember to keep yourself open to those possibilities.

Endings are merely the start of a new beginning.  I want to emphasize this- endings are merely the start of a new beginning -I have to remind myself of this too.

We are with you through each phase and cycle.  

Life Purpose– Your angels are telling you that the purpose of your life is to serve in a way that brings great joy to yourself and to others.  So if you’re doing something and you are not bringing in joy to yourself and to others, you are not aligned with your purpose. If you’re asking “what is my purpose or what am I supposed to do”, these are completely normal questions- just keep yourself open.

Don’t worry about FINDING your purpose; instead focus on serving a purpose. Do you feel the difference? Sometimes we end up looking for a job and all we end up with is a job; it’s not really our purpose. The way to draw your purpose to you is to serve others. When you serve and you find that space of losing track of time and feel pure joy or bliss, you’ll know that you have found your purpose. Follow that direction!

Serve a purpose and in return your purpose will SERVE YOU. A lot of times we question if we have really found our purpose- just stay open and keep serving darling.

JoyThe HIGHEST energy of all. Joy is the magical sense that everything is possible. So when you’re in a space of joy you can feel that everything is possible. But when we allow the stresses of life, relationships, all of these other things to fill that space where joy should be, it’s very difficult to connect to that high vibrational energy. Find space for yourself to really feel that joy.

Joy springs from appreciating the gifts within each moment. A lot of times we just want things to be over  so we can move on to the next thing. We become absent from these moments. Sometimes we can really miss out on the things that we can capture that joy with.

Joy allows you to attract and create your present and future moments at their highest possible levels. Allow yourself to be in joy. Yes, a lot of things are going on at once. Yes, there may be a lot of uncertainty. This takes awareness to realize that “oh wow. I am allowing the pressures of the world to come inside and fill this space where joy should be. Nothing should be in the space in order to really connect with joy.

Let Your Past Go(Sometimes I feel these cards speak out to so many of us when I do live videos in my group, for myself included). Let your past go. Your angels are reminding you the burdens of carting your past around has made you weary. Try to get a visual of that- carting your past around. This is not just simple things that you’re carrying with you. NO, you are using a cart, putting everything- all of it- in there and then you’re carrying this cart around with you.

Dear one, it’s time to set this burden down. It’s time, it’s not serving you. It’s really stealing your precious energy from you.

Keep only the lessons and the love. Sometimes when we’re in these situations we can’t see the love at all. You can’t see it until you let go of that cart. I can totally attest to that. I had a lot of burdens and once in a while they come back. Catch yourself when you’re holding on to or maybe even identifying with those burdens.

Leave everything else behind- you don’t want it and you don’t need it. It’s as easy as that!

So we’re all being reminded to allow joy and serving to guide you to your life purpose; that it is in serving others that we find our purpose. Let go of what is no longer serving you. It’s time to let go of your past to live, serve and raise your vibration in the space of joy.

I’ve been saying for a while in order to make that shift happen- you have to let that shit go! This will bring our whole body, our mind and spirit into alignment. If you’re musically inclined think of it this way; you play a chord which consists of three notes. If even one of those notes isn’t right you know right away. So image your body, breath spirit all in alignment and creating the most beautiful sound that you can imagine. That sound is a vibration- joy is the highest vibration!

 

Thank you for taking this time out with me to have some fun and spread some joy! I love doing these live readings in my group and I extend a warm welcome to join us so you can catch the next reading in The Heartfelt Awakening Village.

Connecting to Your Heart Center

Hello! My name is Deni Van– if you don’t know who I am; I am a spiritual body breath mind coach. I facilitate the spiritual awakening process.

Recently I was able to spend some free time with the members of my community and had some fun with angel and tarot card readings. A card was drawn and it got us discussing the Heart Center or the Heart Chakra.

The Card read “Your angels are reminding you that love is the heart of the matter”. The thing with love is that many of us are a little bit confused with the word love and maybe even a little tainted with the word. So let me explain just a little bit what I mean by love versus what many people think what love is.

There are two loves- just like there are two parts to us! There’s the noun love and the verb love.  We all know, very well I may add, the verb love. It’s conditional love- “based on these conditions I will love you and if you behave in a certain way that I don’t like I will withdrawal my love from you”- this is the verb love. This is where we have conditions where we may be loved today but, that can change at any time.  Most of us know this kind of love all too well.

What most of don’t understand is the noun love- unconditional love. No judgement, no conditions, just pure, unabiding love. “Your heart is the center within your physical being attuned most to love”. Notice we’re not talking about your mind; our minds are attuned to the verb love. Our heart is attuned to the space of love- the noun form of love; unconditional love.

It’s safe for you to love and be loved with an open heart”. How many of us have put a mental block on our hearts because of an experience where we’ve programmed ourselves to shield our hearts from having this kind of experience again? We’ve put this block on our hearts that we can’t be loved- we need to let go of the mind. We’re being reminded to let go- that’s it’s SAFE to let go and allow ourselves to be loved.

The mind is what keeps us in the mindset of “no- I’ll be hurt” because it can’t let go of these past experiences of “love hurt me”. The verb hurt you- someone else’s actions hurt you, not love. Loves hold the space, holds you, guides you and leads you, all from within- in your heart.  In this card our angels are telling us that “it’s safe for you to love and be loved with an open as we stand by with perfect protection and guidance”.

If you’ve been on this journey for a little bit you may know about chakras- if not that alright I can explain just a little bit. Chakras just means wheel and these are energy centers throughout your body. So when we’re talking about heart center we’re not actually talking about the physical heart itself that is off to the left of the chest. The Heart Center is the middle of your chest- the center of our being really.

So, above the heart we have three chakras- the throat, third eye and the crown which connects us to all that is. And then below the heart, we have three lower chakras- the solar plexus, the sacral and the root which connects us to the earth. The Heart is in the center. Whereas the chakras above flow to all that is and the chakras below that ground us- the Heart Center in the middle expands out. There is no limit to the Heart Center.

Think of love as an unlimited expansive space. I will cover this in another blog but, think of it this way- love is like the sky and it hold space for all the clouds to do their thing. The sky isn’t like “Oh I don’t like you clouds get out of here”- no. It just holds the space for whatever is happening without judgement or opinions. This is the unconditional love that your angles are guiding you to.

Now, one big question that came up is “how is it that we can work on our heart center?”

Give up the idea that you need to work. Your Heart Center needs no work 😉 (Love that we go over topics like this in our group Heartfelt Awakening Village!) A lot of times when things like this come up, whether that be current emotions or traumas of our past, we start to become blinded from seeing or moving from our Heart Center. I work with some of my members and clients with EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to work on the Heart Center to learn to recognize where we perceive from.

So for example, let’s say anger issues are coming up; we’ll use EFT to tap on and recognize what is happening. Anger clouds the Heart Center, so we’ll tap on the heart and say “Even though I am experiencing this anger and this anger is making my body and my mind react” (really reflecting on what is happening within the mind and body) we’re actually looking at what is happening within the body and not suppressing these feelings and emotions or reactions. Suppression can really limit the Heart Center, causing all of this to just resurface again and again. So by facing this, recognizing and even talking ourselves through these experiences and choosing yes! “Yes! Even though I am experiencing this pain and tension, even though I am experiencing this anger and emotions even though I have been through this trauma or wrong doing- I CHOOSE to STAY in the stillness of my being.” Recognizing this movement and choosing to remove your attention and instead stay in the stillness and safety of your being. This is transcending. This is direct work on the heart center. How powerful!

I would love for you to join us in this! Topics like this come up a lot in our group! Our group is a private, safe and judgement free zone to be able to connect to yourself and if you choose to connect to a community of like-minded spiritual awakening seekers. I would love for you to dig deeper with us at the Heartfelt Awakening Village.

May your day be full of Blessings!
