I traveled to the Grand Canyon this past weekend. It was cold, stunning, and filled me with awe and appreciation for the beauty here and now. One of the joys of visiting nature's wonders in the off-season is the solitude and quiet. It allows me to connect with the still voice within.
We all need to take time to center and to get in touch with the essence of who we really are. It's easy to get caught up in the hectic, seemingly out of control pace of our lives and forget we are here to create, to love, and to live in peace and harmony. How we treat ourselves, the beliefs we form, and the view we learn to take of the world and everything in it are reflections of how we feel about ourselves. Learn to love without expectation or judgement, to find that small still voice within, to see the beauty of a moment in a seemingly impossible situation, and to discover the beauty that is sometimes hidden in a wounded person who is acting out their pain.
"...at all the moments in that new lifetime, whenever a new soul appeared on the scene, whether that new soul brought joy or sadness-and especially if it brought sadness...'Always remember', God had smiled, 'I have sent you nothing but Angels.'" (Neale Donald Walsch, The Little Soul and the Sun)

Breathe in. Breathe out.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Breathe in and breathe out and just let go of all that stuff that is stuck inside you.
This is a special day and we don’t want to carry any old stuff with us.
Put one hand on your heart and one hand on your belly. And as you breathe quietly, notice how comforting that feels. Be aware that you can do this anytime and anywhere and take care of yourself.
You can make yourself feel better with simple gestures and your own breathe. How it calms you down. It lets yesterday go. It gives you a feeling of safety. You are here for yourself. And as you release yesterday and even this moment, you allow your full attention to come into this day, this hour, this time. Turn your full attention to this wonderful, wonderful day.
Let your heart open and make room for all the good of the Universe to come in.
All is well
Meditation practice isn't about trying to throw ourselves
away and become something better.
It's about befriending who we are already.

When we hold space for someone, we offer to be a container for the overwhelming feelings they may be encountering.
We have all been called upon at one time or another to help a loved one through a difficult time. When the help required consists of concrete actions such as running errands or making phone calls, we know what to do. But sometimes we are called to hold space for the person as they go through their journey. They may need to express anger or grief; they may need to talk or simply be silent. They may need us to hold their hand; they may need us to give them time alone. Whatever the case, when we hold space for someone, we offer ourselves to be a container for the overwhelming feelings they may be encountering due to their circumstances.
When we offer ourselves in this way, the more centered and grounded we are, the better. Our steadiness allows our companion to lean into us for support, and our presence provides an environment in which they can be free to move. We can also help by being responsive, allowing them to dictate the flow of action from talking to not talking, from anger to grief, and back again. By being aware and open, we can help them confront their feelings when that feels right, and back off from them when they need a break. Holding space requires humility, conscientiousness, the ability to step out of the way, and us to honestly understand that this is not about us.
When we love someone in this way, we provide a space in which they can simply be, and feel what they need to feel without worrying about how they are being perceived. We can provide this offering in person, over the phone, or even from a distance through meditation. However we do it, when we hold space for someone in need, we are offering a gift of the highest nature.
Why do we feel what we feel? How do past lives impact current lives? Life is easy when life is flowing our way. Its the painful situations that cause us to grow. It may take a while, but eventually we've had enough and we start seeking. Past life regression heals by revealing to you your repeating patterns of behavior. For example, I had a client come to see me due to an inability to connect with the opposite sex. While they didn't feel safe, they wanted to experience love and be in a relationship. Relationships are frequently the motivation for self-awareness. In the first session they regressed to a life of abandonment and heartache. The pain of rejection and fear was carried throughout that lifetime and recognized as unresolved at death. The second time I saw them, they regressed to a life of chosen isolation. They experienced the loneliness of that decision and they could feel their determination not to be hurt. At death they felt they had wasted an opportunity. They were also able to recognize that they were unhappy because of their actions, but felt paralyzed by the fear of being hurt. The third visit to my office they regressed to a happy life, married with children. They could feel their deep love for their spouse and children. They experienced this from the perspective of the opposite sex. This view point impacted their current view and distrust of the opposite sex. This experience empowered them to recognize their patterns of behavior and to move forward with confidence in this lifetime.
Tina Kelly is helping people realize their potential to move past blocks and perceived limitations utilizing past life regression, between lives (the bigger picture), and by bringing mindfulness, or present moment awareness to here and now. The moment you presently find yourself in. Through this awareness you make conscious decisions without judgement.
