Welcome Home the Emptiness

Heart Chakra emanation - PicMix


‘Only the heart can touch the sky.’Β  Rumi





2020 is the year of the heart chakra and as Covid-19 attacks the lungs, we have an important task at hand;

Clearing and healing the wounds in our heart and acknowledging our deep needs, that for so long, we have ignored.

Grief, rejection, emptiness, anger and separation, are just some of the wounding that can happen over time and when we learn to see these wounds with love and compassion, honesty and truth;

We can open this space to reveal and illuminate, it’s hidden treasures;

Unconditional love, expansion, abundance, peace, compassion, joy, good health and a reunion with life.

John O’Donohue beautifully reminds us to feel it all.


‘When the old ghosts come back

To feed on everywhere you felt sure

you had healed……

Do not strengthen their hunger

By choosing fear;

Rather, decide to call on your heart

That it may grow clear and free

To welcome home your emptiness

That it may cleanse you

Like the clearest air

You could ever breathe.

Allow your loneliness time

To dissolve the shell of dross

That had closed around you;

Choose in this severe silence

To hear the one true voice

Your rushed life fears;

Cradle yourself like a child

Learning to trust what emerges,

So that gradually

You may come to know

That deep in that black hole

You will find the blue flower

That holds the mystical light

Which will illuminate in you

The glimmer of springtime.’

John O’Donohue – For Loneliness

  1. beautifully expressed and the hugging vid (which I must have seen a thousand times already and which still makes me smile every single time!!!!) was the bright candle on the gΓ’teau!

  2. Beautiful…and soothing! Thanks Karen, for you always seem to post what is most needed in the moment. I hope that you and yours and well and that you are able to find balance in this crazy time. I see so many people struggling and it is hard to not let that affect me. But I am allowing the space to fill with…whatever is there!
    Sweet Blessings…stay safe ❀

    1. It is hard to watch others struggle, whether we know them or not and although we usually can’t do much for them, we can imagine seeing them being held in light, healing and love. The most important work right now is healing ourselves and often focusing on others keeps us away from seeing what needs to be seen in us. It’s a challenging time but an amazing opportunity to expand within. Keep doing your great work Lorrie. Many blessings πŸ₯°πŸ’•

      1. Thank you, Karen. Your soft message hit home and I understand what you are saying…and I am grateful! It is a time of learning…in so many ways. I send lots of light and love…be well! ❀
