“Yoga will boost your heart health! The heart wants to stretch, breathe, move and dance and yoga helps you do that.
When you enter a typical yoga class you will often hear some reference to the heart. Backbends are often referred to as “ heart openers.” You will hear things like “lift your heart” or “shine your heart forward.” Many teachers will talk about the heart chakra, which is the energy center in the middle of your chest. This kind of metaphysical heart-language is common in yoga classes but rarely do teachers talk about the benefits of yoga on balancing the cardiovascular system.
In December 2015 the European Journal of Preventative Cardiology published a review of yoga and cardiovascular disease indicating that yoga may help lower heart disease risk as much as conventional exercise, such as brisk walking. Exercise that increases your heart rate like cardio, isn’t the only kind of physical activity that can help prevent or manage heart disease. The calming, centering, integrating exercise of yoga is good for the heart too. Combine aerobic exercise and yoga and you get even more benefits. “
Excerpt from Yoga of the Heart in the book Resilient Heart.
There are so many yoga videos on YouTube that you can start out with a 10 minute, easy practice and build up to 30 minutes or an hour from there. Even 10 minutes a day will make a difference.
All the paintings in this series of heart healthy tips is from my series of 35 paintings to heal my heart.
From the Resilient Heart Art book
“What if every illness had an angel assigned to it and we could call on that angel to help us return to perfect health? Why not? Most of us love angels, no matter what religion or spiritual path we follow. I feel a sense of peace when I see pictures of angels. I love the idea that there might be an angel for every illness and feel it is worth taking time to explore.
So, let’s say there is an angel assigned to heart disease. It is the same angel that can heal our broken heart…”
Intro to Chapter Four of Resilient Heart “The Angel of the Heart”
We can let this angel hold our illness for a time when it becomes too much for us to handle. Just by letting go and letting the angel hold your issues for a while you open up a space for healing to happen.

In my experience, if you do the deep personal work that is revealed to you through serious illness you will discover something amazing within yourself.
You will discover your magnificence, your strength and tenacity and your love and commitment to yourself and your connection to the divine.
Illness is an initiation.
Many of us have important moments of transition in our lives, which we experience in our bodies, that can be understood as initiations into a new way of being. They are gateways in to a more authentic expression of self.
Each of these initiations holds powerful information and the possibility of transforming long held patterns that no longer serve us if you allow the sacred journey to unfold. If we are open and allow it to happen.
It is not for the faint of heart ❤️
I believe this type of initiation is a soul contact. It is not, as the New Age movement would have you believe, something created due to out of balance thinking. Believing that we created something with our thoughts, creates shame and leads us away from true self discovery. It causes us to bypass pain so we don’t have to feel it and cheats us out of self discovery.
I am in awe of myself for allowing my initiation to unfold. I am proud for not giving up on myself and for having the strength to keep going even when it took everything I had to do so. I am grateful that I was willing to dive deep, past any limiting beliefs systems, past fear, past the lost of important friends in my life, past any feelings of brokenness, past disappointment and frustration to discover the gems of my authentic self.
I have nothing but the upmost love and respect for any of my friends who have experienced this kind of initiation, are experiencing it right now or going through it with a partner.

If you have been reading my blog you know I have a rare, renegade parathyroid tumor behind my heart that requires a long and complicated surgery. I have been working on clearing it with out surgery using alternative therapies. I have written about my process here and here
I am working with a Naturopath who is also a medical intuitive who has cleared tumors using enzyme therapy. I am working with her already and she isn’t changing me a fee. In order to do the therapy I need $2000, which I don’t have. I have created a fundraiser to raise the money so I can avoid surgery.
It’s ironic to me that my insurance will pay for a surgery to remove it that will cost about $70,000 but won’t pay for natural therapy which is $2000-$2200.
