Peace

May we all find deeper peace within ourselves and in so doing, contribute to our own healing, the healing of others and the healing of our planet. ~ Hayley Mermelstein

I was meditating on feeling deeper peace within myself and deeper peace within my relationships this morning and was inspired to write a short meditation about it and share it with all of you.

Take a moment and fill yourself with a feeling of peace now. Give thanks for the peace that is filling your heart. Imagine feeling peace now. Imagine that you have a deeper feeling of peace than ever before. Imagine bringing this feeling of peace to your relationships, to your work, to your life. Fill yourself with peace today. Give thanks that you are able to hold this inner peace more and more. Give thanks that your relationships are filled with peace. Above all else, give thanks (in advance even) for the peace that resides within your heart. Be appreciative of this new found peace. Embrace it, ask for it, appreciate it. Embody peace today.

Affirm often:

I am filled with peace.
I embody peace.
I embrace peace.
I am peace.

I give thanks for the peace in my heart.
I give thanks that my ability to embody peace is growing everyday.

I am deeply peaceful.

My peace radiates out into the world and creates a vibration of peace.
My peace radiates out into the world and effects every aspect of my life.
My peace radiates out into the world and helps create a new vibration of peace on the planet.

I start with myself.
I start with peace.
I start with love.
I start with a desire for a new way of being.

Today i embody peace and I bring peace to the planet.

I accept you. (Part 2)

Hello everyone and welcome to TRCB (Tong Ren Chakra Balancing) Tuesday where each week I will share with you a healing video for the purpose of helping all of us to balance our chakras and bring forward our best selves in every day life.

This week we will be focusing on accepting others. We all have strengths and we all have weaknesses and learning to accept these strengths and weaknesses is one of the keys to our actualization and to our finding the peace that we desire. When we are offended by every little thing, when we hold a grudge, when we are thrown out of balance by the imbalances of others we give our power away.

And so for today lets cultivate an attitude of acceptance so that we can step into our power, so that we can step into our love, our radiance, our compassion, and our strength. It takes inner strength and power to not be thrown by the imbalances that are all around us. It is easy to lose our balance. It takes fortitude to develop our own inner strength enough to be able to stay steady a mist the everyday imbalances that we encounter. And so for today, lets work on finding our own inner strength, our own inner power and our own inner fortitude so that we are not so easily offended and instead can offer others the compassion and acceptance that is so needed in our world.

Acceptance, of course, is just the first step. Once we have accepted we can ask: Given what is, what am I to do? Sometimes in acceptance we move closer and sometimes in acceptance we move further away. Sometimes in acceptance we express ourselves and sometimes we remain silent. Sometimes we say yes and sometimes we say no. The individual attunement will vary. But the first step is to accept ourselves and accept others and step into our full power, our full strength, our full balance, and our full potential in every day life.

And so seek to be the best that you can be. Do not worry about how others are behaving. At the end of your life, it is your behaviour that you will need to account for. And so focus on yourself. And focusing on becoming the best version of you. It is easy to loose focus and focus on “them”, to focus on what they are doing or not doing, how they have misbehaved. Instead of focusing on the imbalances of others learn to work on bringing your best self forward.

How do you best respond to the imbalances that you encounter every day? Can you step into your own inner power enough to not be so thrown by the imbalances around you. Can you find your own inner strength enough to not take offense? Can you access your compassion so that you can be a true being of light and healing upon the earth?

It is here that your work lies. Again do not be so concerned about the imbalances of others. Instead seek to bring your best self forward more and more and you shall be successful.

This weeks chakra balancing affirmations are:

Crown: I am one with all of life.

Third eye: I understand.

Throat: I am filled with the power of spirit. I am a powerful being of light.

Heart: I am a radiant being of light and love.

Solar Plexus: I accept you. I accept you. I accept you.

Identity: I am both sensitive and strong.

Base: I am filled with humility. I am enough as I am.

And there you have it. You seven chakra balancing affirmations for the week. You may want to pick one affirmations and make it your affirmation for the day or the week. Work with these affirmations frequently and allow them to assist you in bringing your best self forward more and more.

See the challenges in the week ahead as a test in your ability to hold your balance and bring your best self forward. Do not be discouraged if you do not pass all of your tests. We are here on the earth learning to bring our best self forward and this is a process. Allow yourself the space to learn and grow and give others the space they need to learn and grow. Little by lithe as you continue to practice and aspire to find this inner balance and strength you will bring more of your true self forward.

Practice daily for no effort is in vain. Practice daily and model a new way of being. Practice daily and be a force of healing and light upon the earth. Accept yourself, accept others and step into your true power, true strength, true wisdom, true understand, true acceptance, and true love. Practice daily and bring your best self forward more and more.

Have a great week.

Opening to receive love

Hello Everyone,

And welcome once again to TRCB (Tong Ren Chakra Balancing) Tuesday. This week we will be exploring how to balance the chakras in order to receive more love. (We’ve spent the last couple of weeks cultivating greater love and compassion, thought we should focus on receiving this week!).

There is a sea of love all around us and when we learn to open to this sea of love we have greater access to it and can benefit from the love and healing energy that is all around us.

My meditation teacher, Ellen Tadd, says that consciousness is the light switch. What this means is, that when we become aware of something (like the sea of love that is all around us), our very awareness acts as a light switch, turning on that which we are focusing on. So just by focuing on the love that is all around us we can activate powerful forces that help us to feel and experience more love in our daily lives.

And so be sure to watch the video so you can experience this sea of love directly for yourself.

And for those of you who would like a copy of some of the chakra balancing affirmations from the video, here they are:

Crown: I am open to the light. I am open to love.

Third eye: I see with the eyes of wisdom and compassion.

Throat: I am spirit. I am good. And, I am learning.

Heart: I am open to receive love.

Solar Plexus: I welcome love into my life.

Identity: I am filled with wholeness and open to love.

Base: I am filled with humility. I am enough as I am.

And there you have it. Your seven chakra balancing affirmations for the week. You may want to work with all seven at once or simply pick one a day to be your affirmation for the day.

Slowly as we both repeat and embody these principles we retrain our body and mind so that we can hold these attitudes more and more. Working with affirmations is alot like weight lifting. We get stronger and more able to hold the principles over time.

Also, watching the videos is extremely helpful in this process. I recommend watching one TRCB video per day in order to balance your chakras daily and retrain your body and mind for a more expanded awareness. (something we are all working on!).

Have a great week and may the force be with you!

Sincerely,

Hayley Mermelstein

Cultivating Greater Compassion with TRCB

Hello Everyone,
Welcome to TRCB Tuesday where each week I will share a healing video for the purpose of balancing the chakras and assisting each one of us in bringing our best self forward more and more.

This weeks healing video is about 10 minutes long and will focus on using TRCB to cultivate greater compassion. Its a powerful video that will greatly enhance your ability to hold compassion as you venture out into the world.

On the subject of compassion, I will say that yesterday I was out in town and someone left a note on a bulletin board that said something to the effect of: “There is no greater challenge to our spiritual life then learning to cultivate compassion for the stupidity of others (their wording, not mine!) Conveniently, we are given many opportunities to practice through out the day.”

And while this was worded a bit strongly, I still had to stop and reflect and even chuckle a bit to myself. Yes, we certainly are given many opportunities to practice compassion through out the day.

And so for today let this be your practice. Practice responding with compassion to those that you encounter today, knowing that everyone is learning and everyone is growing and that part of why we are here is to learn to bring greater compassion to ourselves and to others .

This weeks chakra balancing affirmations to assist in this process are:

Crown: I am open to the light.

Third eye: I understand.

Throat: I am learning and growing. We are all learning and growing.

Heart: I am filled with compassion for all of life.

Solar Plexus: I accept that everyone is learning and growing.

Identity: I know who I am and I know why I am here.

Base: I am disciplined.

Work with these seven affirmations this week and see how much compassion you can bring to your daily life. Remember that sometimes it is compassionate to walk away from a situation and sometimes it is compassionate to get closer. Regardless of what actions you take you can always hold compassion in your heart and hold the awareness that everyone is learning and everyone is growing.

Have a great week and enjoy the video!

Sincerely,

Hayley Mermelstein
