Energy of Self-Care...
Engaging in the self-care energy of an Open Heart can be very scary if you have found it necessary to keep yourself closed off to feel protected. But you miss so much of the joy in life if you stay closed off. Allow these resources to help you engage with your heart, to clear away heaviness and constriction and open to love, light and healing energy. Connect with whatever resources speak to you, in whatever order you would like. I suggest beginning with the Welcoming Visualization, Imagery and Fable if you are unsure what would be most helpful. If you need additional support, please see my Offerings or contact me for personal mentorship.

Take Me To:
Energy Welcoming Visualization
Listen to this short visualization to begin your journey with the Open Heart self-care energy.
- Open Heart Welcoming Visualization

Imagery is powerful and is a wonderful way to connect to your intuition and subconscious. I encourage you to spend some time with the picture, particularly before you read the fable or use any of the other resources. Study it and check in with your own intuition as you gaze at the image.
Humans relate with others through stories. Stories are a gentle tool we can use to explore ourselves, as we see how the characters, situations and emotions might mirror what is in our lives, hearts and minds. This fable was written by me (Jen!) through connection with the creative flow of Spirit.
Use these questions as prompts to explore the energy of this self-care concept in your life. Write, paint, craft, sing, make music, meditate, read Tarot/Oracle cards, etc. to connect with this energy.
Practices & Tools
Practice makes perfect! I would adjust that to say that 'Practice makes self-care.' It is through sustained practices that we learn how to more deeply connect with and support ourselves. There are a variety of types of practices to use for this, including connection with our bodies, nature, and ritual/ceremony.
Addressing a Heart-Constricting Situation
A body noticing practice designed to help you learn how to resolve a situation in a way that will release constriction in your heart/body and open you to free-flowing energy.
Meditations and shamanic journeying allow you to explore yourself by having an experience in a deepened or altered state of consciousness. They are helpful for relaxation, altering your energy and perspectives, connecting with your intuition and helper beings, and receiving information. Guided journey meditations allow you to experience these benefits in a safe and supported way. Remember - it's your experience and you can't do it wrong! Whatever you experience is what you need at that moment. Breathe, relax and open to the wisdom of the experience!

To explore even more deeply, consider looking into crystals/stones, essential oils/aromatherapy, animal medicine, plant wisdom, angels, Spirit Guides, symbols, sacred geometry, sounds, and any other areas where you feel called to explore this self-care energy!
