Was I just not saying that technology could go awry? I was having a feeling today something was going to go. Anyway, welcome back everybody. Come back together. I hope you’re all seeing this. I was just sitting here and everything went dead. So hopefully we’re coming back on now. Give it a minute. Hello. Give it just a second to come out. I’m Lara Jaye with Soulful Sunday. Welcome, welcome, welcome. And hopefully this is showing up in your feeds now.

I wanted to let you know, Wednesday night, April 8th at 8:00 PM Eastern Standard Time I’m going to be going live on Zoom. There will be a… And Amy’s on, great. There will be I think probably a $33 price point for an hour of massive light language and clearing for a group. This coming Wednesday night at 8:00 PM. So please join in. If you are interested in that, please send me an email. You can message me here on Facebook, or you read it in the chat. Give me your email and I’ll give you the updated information. Or you can email me at Lara, L-A-R-A@larajaye.com. L-A-R-A-J-A-Y-E.com. And I’ll be happy to… Oh good, Lori’s back on, Amy. We lost our technology, our live feed for a moment.

So praying that things keep going for the next half an hour for us. So again, I hope you can join me Wednesday, April 8th. And I want to know how everybody’s doing. Give me one word of how you’re feeling. Tired, frustrated, happy, sad. Maybe you or somebody in your family. Just what’s the overall feeling? I’m just really curious. Anxious, scared, lonely. Could be a little bit all of it. I was just saying that some of the clients I was talking to today feel like this is being done to them. And what I want to offer is it’s being done for you. I want just a little one little word shift there. And it’s being done for you. And what’s happening out in the world is not being done to us.

So welcome back everyone that we had lost when technology went under. So hopefully everybody’s back on. I’m going to keep going. Amy, you’re tired? Yes. Yeah, I’ve been very tired as well. Becky, you feel amazing. That’s great Becky. And good, good, good. So I know lots of emotions are coming up for people and we’re going to be doing, during the light language meditation at the end of this, we’re going to be clearing those emotions and really tapping in and feeling. At least, in the few minutes we’ll be able to get rid of one anyway. And then on Wednesday night when we do the Zoom, we’ll tap in on a lot more.

So that’s great that Becky you’re feeling amazing. I know your work just closed, and a lot of other people have been home. Oh, I like the faces. Thanks everybody for… I love the faces. So if you’re feeling like just exceptionally happy, like what.. Ooh, Liz, resilient. I like that. Resilient. Some people have felt like they are getting more energy. Others are feeling like the life is being sucked out of them. I don’t know. We’re just doing it all. So what I want to, again, this is not being done to you, this is being done for you. And I know that it’s really, really, really not easy to see right now, but if we can all kind of start with that point and focus on our own emotions. I can tell you what happens when these emotions get stuck in us and we don’t process them properly.

They get stuck in our bodies, they get stuck in our energy fields. We all go out, arms length and we’re all these masterpieces, these beautiful energy fields. And I want to I want to post a picture of what it looks like when… Hold on a second here. Janet says, “Video and voice keep cutting out.” Is that still happening, Janet? Kay, welcome Kay. Is my video and voice still cutting out? Can everyone write in the chat, “Yes, no, maybe so,” while I post this picture? Let’s see if I can post it. Insert in emoji. Oh, it’s not letting me post the picture. It’s just one of those days. Insert an emoji. Hold on, let me try one more thing. No, it’s good for you. All right Amy, it’s working for you. Janet, let me know what it’s doing over there. Kay, you hear me fine? Okay. All right. This is just one of those… Shoot, I wanted to show you this picture and it’s not letting me post the picture. So anyway. Oh, love the little hearts and all the little fun things. Somebody has an angry face. Who did the angry face? That’s awesome.

Ah. Anyway, it’s not letting me post the picture, but I’m going to explain. So what happens when we get all these stuck emotions in us? So we feel heavy, we feel burdened, we have all of this stuff stuck in our field, all in our arms length. We at go arms length. So all this stuff is stuck in our field. Not only in our field, but also in our body. Gets stuck in our body. And then what happens? We start to not feel good. We feel sick, we could actually be physically sick. We could be tired, we could just feel overwhelmed. Hey Lori. We could feel addictions can start rearing their ugly head when we have all this stuck emotions in us. And at this time, I don’t know about you guys, but I have just wanted to eat and eat and eat. We could crave sugar, we could crave alcohol. The eating, I’ll tell you about that in a minute, but lot of people are stressed.

If anyone else has been wanting to eat everything in sight, give me an emoji for that. Let me know that it’s not just me. It’s one of our safety and security. We eat, usually we want yummy foods, ice cream or something that’s high carb and yummy to make us feel safe because we’re feeling so ungrounded, and just really shaken right now at the core, which is why I wanted to keep showing up for you guys on Sundays and help us all reground and be here. So again, we have all these stuck emotions. We could feel sick, tired, overwhelmed, addictions, especially the eating. We could just feel stressed and tired. Amy, you mentioned tired. And we could be in emotional or we could be in physical pain.

We could start having more health challenges or just feeling stuck in life, which all of us are kind of being stuck right now. Becky, is that beer? I like that. Lori, ice cream and is that cheese? Oh, I like that. Yeah, I craved cheese a couple of weeks ago. I’m going in spurts, different things. Like, “Okay. What do I want today? What do I want today?” And I was talking with a nutritionist friend of mine yesterday and she’s like, “One of the things that’s happening to all of us is that our serotonin is being used up so fast.” And I already have low serotonin and low dopamine. I know that. And I should know that this is using it up even more, the stress and the and the scary and all of it. And so what happens when we have low serotonin? We crave sugar and carbs especially. Whether it be in beer, cheese, ice cream.

We crave that comfort food. We crave that in order to remind our bodies… Partly it’s hormonal. It’s literally chemical and hormonal. Our bodies are craving that to help us bring us back to balance. Our bodies are always seeking balance. And that’s one of the things that we’re doing. And I’m not going to tell you to not do it. I’m going to tell you to honor and listen to your body, and know that that is just a symptom of something bigger that’s going on. It has to do with our emotions. And why are we using up so much serotonin? Well, it’s because we’re in fear. It’s because we have these stuck emotions. I mean there’s a lot of reasons, but that’s one of the main ones.

So when we don’t sit down and feel what we want to feel, it gets stuck in us and then we start to have all those symptoms I mentioned. It’s as simple as that. Easier to say, harder to do. Hey Lacey, welcome. We are all being affected. We are all being called to slow down. Come back to the basics. I think I had mentioned that this is like a collective timeout and to slow down, come back to the basics. And what are we going to do with it? And I don’t know. It’s up to each and every one of us individually to slow down, go within and not to be afraid of feeling your feelings. And I think that that’s the key that I want to encourage everyone today because we’ve been home for some of us a couple of days, some of us a month or two, and feelings are starting to come up. It’s starting to get a little crowded in our house, even if we’re by ourselves and feelings are starting to come up.

We can only self soothe, that’s a big word, with food or whatever else for so long. Sooner or later we need to deal with our stuff. We’ve got to deal with whatever it is that’s coming up. There’s a reason it’s coming up. And it’s time to begin to journal. It’s time to begin to feel and acknowledge what it is that you’re feeling. I’ve mentioned before what we resist persists. So what we resist persists. We know that. So ask yourself questions right now. What am I feeling? And this is what we’re going to be doing during the meditation a little bit, is acknowledging our feelings and what we’re feeling right now. And there’s probably a whole lot of them, but let’s just pick one.

We’re going to pick one for this meditation, one feeling. Where is it stuck in your body? Where do you feel it and what does it want you to know? I know that’s a really strange question. What does it want you to know? Many, many years ago, for about a decade, I was on antidepressants and very, very depressed and sick, and needed them. And I was sitting in my counselor’s office and there was this book sitting there. And I was waiting and the name, the title of the book was, What Does your Depression Want You to Know? And I’ll never forget that book. I can tell you I’ve never read it, but I remember that title, even to this day, 15 years later. I remember the title of that book. What Does Your Depression Want You to Know? And I went home that day and I started journaling about it. What does my depression… What’s it trying to tell me? It’s here for a reason. These emotions, these feelings are here for a reason. We’re craving food for a reason. What is it trying to tell you?

Yesterday I had a really bad headache all day, which is very unusual for me. I normally don’t get headaches and I was talking with a friend later yesterday, and she reminded me to go inside, to go in. This is what I do all the time with emotions. But with this headache, I was just fighting it and I was trying to ignore it. And I didn’t take any medicine for it. Lori, you feel very stuck. Yeah, a lot of people do right now and we’re just kind of trapped. And I will tell you when I was going through the depression and I was just sitting on the couch staring out the window, I felt like I got to put like the seatbelt on me and that’s kind of what’s happened to all of us right now. And you’re not going anywhere until you deal with your stuff kind of. And that’s what it felt like. And that’s where we’re all being pushed to at this point, is you’re not going anywhere until you deal with your stuff.

And we have free will, we can say, “I’m not going to deal with it.” And we can have another drink, we can eat some more ice cream. And there are days where that’s my choice and I will do that. But for the most part, most of the time I choose me and I choose to feel. And that’s what I want to encourage you all to do. So again, if we’re resisting it, like I was resitting my headache yesterday, it just kept getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger, until I actually said, “All right, what the heck are you trying to tell me? What do I need to know?” Ask yourself these questions. What are you feeling? Where is it stuck in your body? What does it want you to know? It’s about taking the time, slowing down, sending it some love. What happens when we send something love or we acknowledge it? It softens, it relaxes, it releases, it flows. That’s what we want our emotions to do, to flow through the river.

I even think about when the kids were little. When kids are little, or dogs, or anything, somebody wants attention, you get on the phone. The second you take a breath, acknowledge them, generally not always, generally, let them know their loved, that you’re still there, you’re still paying attention to them. What happens? They soften and they give you a few more minutes on the phone, or they give you a little bit more time to do whatever. So let’s see here. Again, Diana, I just read your text. I’m laughing. Yeah, we’ll talk later. Top three tips to again today. Be still. So what we thought was going to be two weeks might be two months. We really don’t know. We really don’t know. So be still manage the mind chatter because our mind is going to go in a bazillion different ways.

Give me an emoji if your mind is going in a bunch of different direction. I want to know if everyone is feeling this and our heads are, “What the heck is going on?” This is not just about… Again, what we do in our little world is important, but there are a lot of really sick people out there. There’s deaths every day. It is breaking my heart to see the layoffs, and the furloughs, and what all is happening. And when we come out of this, for those of us who are still going to be healthy, what are you going to be? Who are you going to be? And that was my question for you.

So be still. Take advantage of this time, it is a gift. It’s a gift. Manage the mind chatter. And then of course we’re going to be mindful, we’re going to be mindful and that means bringing in the five senses in everything we do. We get to slow down, we get to focus on the moment, and know that we have all that we need in this moment because the second we start thinking about the future, or we start thinking about, “Well, in the past I had money in the stock market and now I don’t.” And then we start thinking about the future. Like, “How am I going to pay my bills?” That’s when we get into, oh, we can’t breathe. That’s when we get into the anxiety and the stress. But if we think come back to us, and stillness in this moment, what happens? We have all that we need. We have each other.

And if you’re feeling alone, I want you to know that there are people, I am here, there are many other people on this call that you have a community to reach out to. So we have all that we need in this moment. You are enough, you have enough and you’re doing enough. We can let go of that not enough struggle. It’s not part of our world anymore. We can let go of the struggle that we think that the stock market is when it’s doing well, that we’re successful. Yesterday I was going through some files. As I said last week, I’ve been shredding and have had time to finally get organized. And was going through some old pictures and I was like, “Oh, that was just the perfect house,” or, “That was… ” And for those of you who know me, I’ve moved quite a bit over the last few years. “It was picture perfect. My pantry was perfect. Everything was good.”

Oh, there’s Dexter in the background. Dexter, say hi. Oh, he heard daddy out in the back. So the pantry was perfect. The furniture was perfect, but you know what? I wasn’t and I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t happy on the inside. We can have everything picture perfect on the outside, like my life was, like your life may look from the outside looking in. I can tell you I’ve had that perfect house. I’ve had the perfect family, the fabulous vacations, success from the outside looking in, and I was still flipping miserable. I was still miserable. Why? Because I was ignoring myself. I was ignoring my emotions. I wasn’t listening to my body. I hated myself. I hated how I looked. I hated that I wasn’t showing up in the world how I felt like I should’ve been. I didn’t know how to process emotions, like I’m going to show you today.

I was a ticking time bomb, waiting to be triggered. Ticking time bomb. So the war, the war that many of us have, it’s within ourselves. It’s within ourselves. And when we have that, that’s what shows up around us. That’s what shows up around us. I don’t care how perfect your house is, or how much money is in the stock market that you have. That is the old definition of success. It’s what we’ve been told, but it’s not anymore. If you really sit down and think about it, when are you happy? When you’re surrounded by your loved ones. I’ve been basically completely alone for seven years, until three weeks ago, when my son and his wife and the little dog, hypoallergenic dog moves in with me. Nothing has made me more happy. Love having them. Love having them.

So today, understand the war’s within yourself. Let me know that you are handling your emotions. Send me an emoji if you’re been feeling emotional, feeling your emotions, right? Okay, awesome. All right. All right. Who’s ready for… Oh, I love that. You guys are awesome. I love hearts. Makes me happy. So we’re going to do some light language meditation. And then there’s an angry face and a sad face. Yes. All kinds of emotions happening, right? All right. While I’m talking for a minute, if anyone has any questions, please put those in the chat real quick. But I want to talk for a minute. We are going to do the light language meditation. And if you have not experienced the light language meditation, I want you to just sit back and close your eyes. All you need to do is listen and imagine it is like music, that you’re sitting back and allowing music in to your vibration, into your field, to help loosen up that stuck emotions.

And while we’re doing it, I want you to focus on that maybe one in particular emotion that you’re really feeling right now, and you’re ready to let go of. Lori, “I feel stuck in my upper back. I’m willing to let that emotion move through.” Great, great. We will definitely move that today. If anyone has anything else, go ahead and mention that if you want. And before we check out again, if you’re interested in Wednesday night with me at 8:00 PM Eastern on Zoom, shoot me an email at lara@larajaye.com. Here, I’ll put it in the chat. Just shoot me an email and I will send you the information on that.

I’m super excited because we have a lot going on this week. And it was a roller coaster week last week, and this next couple of weeks are going to be as well and I want to be there to support you. So again, I’m here today. I’ll be definitely back next Sunday. And in between, Wednesday night you can meet me on Zoom. So shoot me an email if you’re interested in that. So again, sit back and relax. Close your eyes and we’re going to go into our meditation time. And so I want you to, again, we’re going to start by focusing on that root chakra. Our root chakra is where we hold our stress, especially the money stress. We’re holding a lot of fear in there. It’s our foundation. Our foundation is being shaken to the core. Our foundation is being shaken to the core.

And so I really want you to just imagine your root chakra, which is the base of your spine, the base of your spine. It’s an invisible kind of ball of energy. And so just imagine that, and we’re going to send it love right now with the light language. And as you begin to think about what emotions for you are stuck in there, just feel them being released through the bottom of your feet. [foreign language 00:24:12].

Feel that, feel whatever it is, those emotions release through your root, your root through your feet. Let all of that go. Let all of that go. Begin to think about what one emotion, if it hasn’t been released yet, that you’re still holding in your body. I feel a lot of tension in people’s backs. I feel tension in our hearts. Just massive sadness and also the stomach area. I feel a lot of people holding a lot of stuff in their stomach area. And so come up, what is the one emotion that you’re feeling? What is the one emotion that you’re feeling in any of those areas, or others that are ready to go? And begin to focus on that.

What we focus on expands, but when we love on something, it releases. [foreign language 00:26:12].

I’m being reminded to remind you all this is not being done to us, this is being done for us. And for everyone to take a deep breath. Let the light language integrate into your body. And what we took in today will continue to release and expand over the next week. Let it all go. [foreign language 00:27:28]. Know that all is well, and you are divinely guided and protected in everything that you do. You’re here today. It is no accident.

So again, know that you are completely taken care of. This is not being done to you, it’s being done for you. And to feel the emotions, whatever it is that’s coming up for you, feel those emotions and let them go. [foreign language 00:28:05]. And feel your whole body being filled with that incredible love from above, and joy and peace. And take that with you all day long today, while you continue to feel other emotions as they come up and not be afraid of them. Welcome them, acknowledge them and let them know that you accept them, and you’re going to feel them and let them go.

So again, thank you for joining me on Soulful Sunday. I look forward to being back here next Sunday at noon. Really massive self care this week, today, especially Sunday, but massive self care this week. Love on yourself. Feel whatever it is you need to feel. Take care of yourself. And I would love to have you join me Wednesday night. Shoot me an email if you’re interested. Much love, and many blessings. Have a great day, everyone.
