A Safe Yoga Home

A Safe Yoga Home

I grab the yoga mat I inherited from Linda Esser and head out the door in her yoga pants. I only used them for lounging until now. It feels weird to be in public in lounge pants. The Heart Center Studio is my third ever Yoga class. It’s my first time to experience it as a blend of body-mind with meditative reading and music. A myriad of physical and emotional responses arise. I’m glad Jennifer starts us with the Child’s Pose that comes naturally though I never learned it before. It’s interesting that some personal intuitive practices are Yoga. Jennifer reads beautifully inspiring words. What if our religion was each other If our practice was our life If prayer, our words What if the temple was the Earth If forests were our church If holy water—the rivers, lakes, and ocean What if meditation was our relationships If the teacher was life If wisdom was self-knowledge If love was the center of our being. ~ Ganga White This is what I imagined yoga would be, the integration of physical and spiritual practices. I was inspired by the movie AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda. It gave me a better understanding. Yoga is about preparing the body for meditation, to become a clear channel for Divine Inspiration and finding my personal guru within. Waves of thoughts and emotions roll through me. Jennifer suggests a return to the Child’s Pose if needed. Ah! Safety is always encouraged. I watch and imitate as best I can, but don’t stay in sync with the class. During a movement she says, “…if it is available to you today…” and likewise honors herself. As my face comes downward on Linda’s mat I notice an automatic thought flash. Linda loved yoga, but it didn’t heal her, she still died at 50. Tears spurt out my eyes and I mentally tap, embracing and releasing the emotions. Jennifer names and guides us into familiar poses. I learned them with another friend on her Wii in 2010 when she could still stand, albeit wobbly. Now she is confined to a wheelchair. On a recent visit she spelled out on her alphabet board “Diagnosis Terminal.” Yoga didn’t heal her or Steve Jobs either. What else could I do for three years disabled except become body-mind aware while living from a reclining position? My awareness now is on grateful amazement. Years after recovery I am able to flow with Yoga for 45 minutes before I need a break to check in with myself. I’m here to learn Yoga because I’ve healed with the mind-body work of FasterEFT. I can integrate yoga with my skills and go deeper to release mental/emotional connections that arise. A large plaque in the corner reads, “I will hold myself to a standard of Grace not perfection.” I feel fresh air blowing in and from a different position in the room notice the five-panel mural stretched across the wall. Each panel is integrated with a beautiful image of an expansive tree against my beloved colors. It reminds me of the Tree Metaphor we use in FasterEFT. Jennifer invites the class back to the Child’s Pose, and I notice it’s safe to return to my mat. I continue with what feels safe but expands my body-mind-spirit. The grateful joy that spontaneously washed over me near the beginning of class returns for an encore. Finally, I have found my way to a safe yoga home. http://www.heartcenterstudio.com © Copyright B.

WHAT in the WORLD am I doing!?

WHAT in the WORLD am I doing!?

Why am I indoors on a gorgeously sunny spring Saturday? I could be hiking the Tallgrass Prairie but instead I am vacuuming the 1894 wood plank library sub-floor of an historic old house. WHY? I enjoy the mindlessness of the work and a special feeling of being a tiny part of the restoration of a grand old house. I would be doing this for my own Victorian house if I had not bought the family mid-century house my dad built. Yes, I have work to do at home, but I need a break from the emotion involved there. Methodically and meticulously I vacuum wood shards and sawdust out of cracks and pull nails while I inquire within. Ross had briefly asked, “Do you really want to…do you like doing this…?” I haven’t given him an answer, partly because I haven’t yet formulated the words to help him understand. People don’t comprehend how comfortable I am in construction zones, because I grew up in a home perpetually under construction. Maybe that is one reason why I am drawn to helping Ross. I realize it is a complex combination of motives even I may not quite understand. Something gave me hope the first time I read The Emporia Gazette, March 2014, New owner gives breath to historic Emporia home. It was during my shadows of grief and depression, still reeling from Mother’s absence in our house and other deeply rooted family issues that insisted on my attention. It was an inexplicable moment that defies human understanding when I read the article’s every word. My mind’s eye can still see a photo of Ross’s silhouette inside the cavernous hull of the Cross House staircase. I noticed an unusual feeling that I want to be there and meet this man. Reading about Ross’s vintage lighting business, I looked for a way to connect. I desperately need new mid-century lighting for my house. I checked out his eBay store, sent him an email, but got no reply. Since I believe everything happens in Divine Order and Perfect Timing, I didn’t think much more about it. By summer, again I reinvented my life and took action to get out and live in my Emporia hometown, not just inside my family’s house. I volunteered for Dirty Kanza 200 and it changed me. I kept working on lots of emotional healing and by fall I spoke my truth to others. I finally had the big shift in October when again I stood up for myself about the concrete staircase resurfacing. Isn’t it interesting how house restoration can be a metaphor for personal restoration? January 3, 2015 I saw another Gazette article Hidden Emporia with Ross MacTaggart giving an inside tour of the old post office. He seems to be an architectural expert! I recognize his name and it was immediately confirmed in an adjacent story about The Cross House renovation moves along. Oh My God! (OMG!) I dove into every word and learn Ross has a blog. What have I missed!? Again I took immediate action, engaged in making blog comments that include self-disclosure about growing up in my Emporia mid-century home. Mine may be the house Ross couldn’t find when he bought The Cross House. Again, now why am I inside preparing a floor to be covered with oak? Because I CAN! I am no longer confined to a bed or an elaborately cushioned recliner that I can’t get up from without an intensely careful plan. OMG! I CAN help someone else, for no good reason other than I want to be of service to what I believe is a remarkable and highly visible improvement to my...

Flip Religious Solicitors

Posted by on Apr 19, 2014 in disability, Faster EFT, healing, Recovery, Robert Smith, YouTube | 0 comments

Working on the book, I hear a knock at the front door. I consider not answering, but go anyway, thinking it may be a neighbor. It’s two young men from the Mormon Church. I’m never inclined to spend much time with them or the Jehovah’s Witness, but I am polite. I tell them that I’ve heard of their church and I don’t practice any religion, but I am spiritual and practice that in a personal way. They don’t understand what that means and begin to ask questions. I tell them religion is humans seeking God, spirituality it God’s connection with us. They say they like to practice their faith in a congregation. I tell them I believe and do my best to follow the teachings of Jesus, but I don’t think organized religion does a very good job of that. They somewhat agree and begin to ask me questions about how then do I practice my faith. I tell them about my recent YouTube upload the Soul Light Connection and how that is a good example of how I practice my spirituality. Also I have other like-minded people who I share with, but it’s not an organized religion. They don’t understand and continue to ask questions. I give them one of my brochures from the shelf by the door, and quickly tell them how to find my channel. I also tell them that the system I used to heal myself from three years of disability is based in the teachings of Jesus and how Robert, who created it, is a minister, though not in a church. I suggest they find my playlist about Spiritual Principles that Support Faster EFT where Robert gives interpretations of scriptures. I tell them if they are not interested after they check it out, please pass on the brochure to someone they may know who has pain or fatigue, because this system will help them the way it did me. They seem impressed and say, “No, you don’t look disabled now.” They thank me and we wish each other a nice day. I watch them walk down the steps with MY literature in their hand. That’s a new flip on that type of encounter. I also find spiritual connections in my daily journal writing. Life is such an interesting journey, as long as I don’t get bogged down in the repetitious routines. We are created to be creatures of habit, yet the nature of life is constant change. What a conundrum! Each day is like the blink of the eyes and gone before we know it. Just go through the days as they blink along. Focus on gratefulness that the systems are working perfectly. Be in the present moment allowing the flow of life and Spirit to carry me along. —© Copyright B. Grace Jones 2014 All Rights...

I cleared my calendar for another escape, diversion and distraction. I needed to pull me out of my isolation and loneliness so I planned a trip to Kansas City to connect with other practitioners and friends. Almost as soon as I committed to the trip I didn’t want to go. It was not resistance, it was the thought that popped in, I didn’t even think about how I could clear my calendar and spend that block of time writing my book. The book was still here quietly saying, “But what about me?” There’s the metaphor and I create my pattern with the book, too. Now the book feels left out, left behind and not included in my plans or life. From incidental information I’ve gotten from others, each piece was another grain of sand to tip the scales. My session with Pam, moving my office upstairs and the quote Cheryl posted by A.M. Homes, “If you don’t write the book you have to write, everything breaks.” When Robin and I talked, his words were like my soul speaking to me directly and there was no denial, just pure recognition of the truth that will set me free. I’m done dangling my toe in the water. It’s time to jump into the deep water and ride the waves of whatever comes up. Keep my spirit in present time, see the flip side, match the frequency and ride with it instead of resisting and fighting against it. The time is now to jump in fearlessly with my whole being, or tap through the fear. Lying in bed this morning I saw it arise, noticed it, allowed it like a wave I’m bobbing on top of and rode it without resistance. I allow it to roll on through and beyond, while I shift into the calm waters without fear or resistance of the next wave. I can do it. I have no more excuses. I don’t think I will do frequent blog posts, unless they are simple and quick. Just one now to say, “Got it, on to the book for now, see ya later, love ya lots.” I learned in the last two months to practice frequent breaks of fun and laughter to pull myself out of negative trances in other ways than tapping. This is the piece that Linda missed. Her style of tapping was serious and I modeled that. It’s time to lighten up and laugh more at the trances this monkey still allows. Stop it! Shift it the instant I notice. My mind/body already knows everything unconsciously that I need in order to succeed. It’s a matter of being still and silent long enough to hear my own inner wisdom. I need to metaphorically sit at the blank page, with the cursor blinking and simply wait until the answer or inspiration comes. Stop pushing myself through it, just live in a state of allowing the flow to come and go. Be with and in the process, be the process. Allow the book and me to be integrated in the work and congruent with the healing process however it needs to happen. I healed from the years that created the disability, now it is time to heal from the trauma of disability, because I know how and I can. It is time to boldly go where no woman has gone before. Be the woman and go deep inside to do the work. The Universe set me up in Divine Order. I’ve made the decision; I am committed to do whatever it takes. This is my Soul Light Purpose on...

Two Remarkable Surprises

Posted by on Mar 14, 2014 in death, Family, Faster EFT, healing, Japan, Tapping | 0 comments

Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is a remarkable surprise. I have an hour of reflexology and an hour of JSJ. During the hour process of JSJ we don’t talk, there is no music, just lovely silence. Afterward I feel like I’ve had a full body massage. The only massage done was on my feet, nowhere else. After a light supper I sit at my MacBook in the dining room and fully notice the sensations in my body. It’s almost indescribable, since I’ve never felt quite like it before. It is a sense of every cell in my body having equal energy movement. I feel inwardly balanced, integrated and harmonious. I am aware of every part of my body equally and simultaneously. Nothing demands my attention more than anything else. Everything is in unison of flowing and relaxing. I am so relaxed I just want to go to sleep but I have Skype to Japan. I rest ten minutes and am completely normal and present for the Skype call. We keep it short since they have project time soon. The kids want to jump rope outside. It is great fun to watch. After we say goodbye I feel sensations like tiredness, but it’s not the same. I look at how many video clips I have and need to sort them while it is fresh in mind. I watch a YouTube clip of Biology of Belief that is Bruce Lipton’s voice with illustrative images. I learn something new when he describes how some cells after creating a caterpillar commit suicide because they have done their work and fear they aren’t needed. They can’t see the vision that the other cells do of how to produce the butterfly. That afternoon I saw a timely newspaper headline that the suicide rate in Kansas has increased 53% in 12 years. It underlines the cellular metaphor Lipton placed over our society. I answer a quick email from a client and then get ready for bed. I guess the sensations are really that of relaxation and not being tired, but it is hard to discern between them. I feel similar sensations after a full night of good sleep, but I am not tired. It’s a sense of complete whole body relaxation. It’s different than any massage and I have no aches because I tapped on them. After the Jin Shin Jyutsu session I am more convinced that with the core group of energy workers right here in Emporia, we can create something really wonderful. People will travel great distances to receive healing skills and experiences in the wonderful space of the Flint Hills. — © Copyright B. Grace Jones 2014 All Rights...

Seeking My Internal Guru

Posted by on Mar 9, 2014 in entertainment, Faster EFT, healing, Recovery, Robert Smith, Tapping, travel | 0 comments

I worked on the book for 1.5 hours Monday. It was good. I kept it simple by just proofreading and editing the first chapter, which is already fairly clean. It’s an easy way back into the work since I’ve been through it many times before. There are still a few lingering emotions around the family issues, maybe because some patterns still linger in the present. I took a couple short breaks and the last one I turned the music on loud and danced for five minutes. That was great! I will do that a lot. It was still about 20° and sunny outside. Since I wasn’t going to walk I got out of the house by going to the grocery store. I ordered the movie e-Motion last night. It’s full of various healing experts, some I know and some I don’t, but it includes Dr. Joe Dispenza and Robert G. Smith. I think Robert is the only EFT type person in it, so I’m happy that surely Dr. JD, the others and thousands of viewers will be introduced to FasterEFT. I listened to the rest of Dr. JD’s CD on the Art of Change and posted a favorite quote from it on my FaceBook timeline, which got a lot of likes and some good comments. I found out three friends are going to the I Can Do It Conference in Denver later this month and will see Dr. JD there. I’m happy for them. Even though I once planned on going, now that I am listening to him at home I am content not to go in person. It will happen another time. I know it will be wonderful for all who are there and it would be for me if I went, too. A deeper part of me says that I already know the basics and I can sit here and do my best to practice going inside to find my own answers. If I actually do the work I will have a greater reward than if I make the trip. It’s about being the change by practicing to become congruent with it. It’s time to take what I have learned from all I’ve studied and go inside and become my own personal Guru. Do what is right for me to create the life I choose fashioned after my own answers. Looking outside myself for answers is an old pattern. It was good and I needed it for a very long time, but maybe not so much now. — © Copyright B. Grace Jones 2014 All Rights...
