Taking “cutting the cords” to another level, in this guided experience, let the acknowledgement of truth set you free of a relationships that is no longer aligned with your energy now. Perhaps a relationship that haunts you or one that was magical and now you’re on different paths, speaking and experiencing what is needed now may bring an honoring and release so you have space for looking forward and new relationships.

This episode is sponsored by the Ally with Death Visualization. It’s a DIY online experience that you can do any time, with a friend or by yourself. The energy of death is powerful to ally with - it gives us the energy to end things or let things die that need to in our lives, to make way for new creations, new energy, and a freer truer version of ourselves.

Especially with this episode of embodying that the past is over, it can help you take inventory of what is living inside you or your dynamics, your relationship to yourself or your outer world that needs to end or be recognized that it is already over.

Things feel overwhelming or weighing on you, make some time to do this for yourself - a great reset for the Spirit.

Close the parts of you, the chapters of your life (or past life), that you’re referencing unconsciously and vibrating with in your life today. The body and nervous system desires this completion so you can be more present and create NOW. With one incident in your life, we take a healing step towards what the soul and body desire for completion.

Featured Photo by Chris Barbalis on Unsplash

When we have moments in our life that are unintegrated, unfelt for its dark and light, or interrupted, we accumulate energy and movement in the body that gives a residue. We feel heavier over time while being more and more clouded in the present moment. We can’t quite see clearly! Take inventory on what’s stuck in time, what wants completion in your life, ancestry, and past life.

Love yourself by catching up all the parts of you that are stuck in time so you can feel embodied now.

Have you found that your mind knows something but your emotions or your body reacts the same as it always has?

This episode is about a very important aspect of loving yourself- loving your whole self and catching yourself up to the present moment by closing the chapters of the past that are left open. Knowing that the past is over, we explore shifting the energy in the body by letting the body catch up to what you know is already over, and completing what’s incomplete.

Following this episode are three healing experientials:

  • Taking Inventory on What’s Stuck in Time
  • Completing a Chapter in the Past Through the Body
  • Releasing and Closing a Relationship That Haunts You

How can horses help you to release limiting beliefs, fears around money, receive love and feel joyful in your life, become a better parent, or build confidence?

I was so excited to learn from special Guest Joy Curran, who offers equine assisted counseling with the help of her amazing horse Chaya. We talk about all the ways that horses can be an embodied and powerful way to learn about yourself, move through blocks and challenges, and build confidence, as well as the spiritual connection, intuitive powers, and love that horses can bring.

Listen in on our discussion right on the farm near Perth, Australia, with all of the farm animals surrounding us! We explore how we can move through blocks with interacting with a horse, how working through a horse is a lot like parenting, resolving issues of abundance and money with horses, how sexual trauma and other trauma can be healed with equine therapy, practicing forgiveness, and cultivating JOY.

Joy by name, Joy by nature. Joy lives to help others discover joy in life! Using her own experiences of overcoming anxiety and depression, Joy is able to relate deeply to others going through similar struggles.

Based in sunny Perth, Joy Curran offers equine assisted counseling and learning services with the help of her amazing horse Chaya. Joy is a qualified counsellor who uses her intuition to select from a wide range of counseling techniques and equine activities. Chaya’s name is of Hebrew origin and means ‘to sustain life, live prosperously, live for ever, be quickened, be restored to health’. These are the things that we are hoping to share with our guests.

Joy has a gentle and natural way of relating to people which helps to put you at ease right away. If you are open to it, Joy would love to pray for you and bless you. Looking for a miracle? Anything’s possible!

Intro Music by Nick Werber (instagram.com/nwerber)

The body holds implicit information, which has been shamed by the echoes of our personal history, collective and archetypal energies, our past lives, and intergenerational family systems.

Support your body’s wisdom in taking the lead to open embodiment, healing, insight, and resolve. This healing experience guides you in bringing a gentle loving witness to your unfolding movement, helping you to set your mind aside, to bridge the body into trauma healing mode, and to a feeling of being more in your body.

This meditation is part of the last episode about trauma which can be found at https://candicewu.com/trauma.

“The body keeps an accurate journal, regardless of what you write down.” —Anonymous

We can’t talk our way out of trauma, anxiety, or depression. It requires the body and heart to move through what it wanted to do that it didn’t get to, and the body will remind (in both subtle and loud ways) us until it happens.

The body is the vessel for all of our experiences and holds the energy of what was overwhelming or incomplete in the past, in our ancestry, and our soul history. What involved the body to begin with requires the body to heal.

Learn about the key components that give way to healing your nervous system and coming through with more resilience and expansiveness, whether or not you think or believe you have trauma.

This episode is about the science, soul, and spirit behind trauma and trauma healing, how our instinctual animal body responds to threat, how the whole body’s function and our experience are impacted by the nervous system’s fight and flight responses, and the connection of the body to spiritual aspects of trauma.

This episode will be followed by a body-centered trauma healing experiential that supports you in unfolding body memory and organic healing.
