The dictionary defines vulnerable as "capable of or susceptible to being wounded or hurt." I have been running from my own vulnerability for years as I skirt the courage to put myself in a position to get close to another person on an intimate level. When I even think of the possibility my heart rate goes up, my hands get clammy and I have difficulty breathing. I have been working for years to become comfortable with the C word (commitment!) but find myself standing on the outside looking in as I don my running shoes and look for the nearest escape!
It is difficult for many of us to allow ourselves the richness of becoming close to another for many reasons. Fear takes over when we think that someone "may" get too near our to our hearts or need us or want to take up too much of our time or whatever excuse we come up with to stay separate. Our neuro-pathways revert back to old patterns and experiences and we don't give ourselves the option to explore new ways of being in relationship. It's just too hard!
I have begun to do more work with a therapist to help me deal with my feelings of vulnerability, not necessarily because I want a relationship, but because I hate that I keep myself separate out of fear. I am sad that I don't give myself the opportunity to explore that area of life because I do know how rich and wonderful it can be. And I would like to give myself the chance to feel that kind of closeness again.
This may be the most delicate subject I can write about but I believe I am not alone in my reticence in this area. The more we open up and talk about it and find that we will not be annihilated if we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, the easier it will be to overcome the fears, open our hearts and feel the love.
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Rumi
A Japanese tradition of healing based on the flow of "Universal Life Force" energy. This promotes the alpha state and ignites the body's own natural healing mechanism. Each class includes an attunement for that level.
If you've ever wanted to elevate the love factor in your life, here's an opportunity! Join us for a fun afternoon of creating your personal paradise using Essential Feng Shui®. Nancy will share ideas for you to incorporate into your bedroom design to raise the chi in your romantic relationship. If you're single, this can improve your relationship with self and/or call in a new and wonderful romantic relationship.
Bring a floor plan drawing of your bedroom, indicating where the door, windows and main pieces of furniture are located. An exact, scaled drawing is helpful, but not absolutely necessary. Please also bring photos of the room, ideally a photo of each wall (taken from the center of the room). If you have the architect's blueprint, bring it.

Becoming aware of what continues to stifle, shunt and/or prevent you from reaching the full potential of your gifts is connected to listening. Spiritual connection is not simply about hearing the "voice" of spirit but to understand and feel which voice is THE VOICE. It's not always the "easy" voice or the voice that judges. It's the voice that resonates within your heart and soul.
An exploration of the fractures within the body, mind, spirit connection assists in developing a stronger relationship with the spiritual sense of self. Building a foundation based on trust and belief in self effectively breaks familiar patterns and "shifts" you into high gear towards fulfilling the purpose of your life. You have the choice to stay stuck in "reverse" or shifting into high gear with this class.
Whether you are just starting out on your path to awakening your abilities or you want to take your gifts to the next level, this course will provide you with an excellent foundation for sharpening your psychic skills.
