What do you do when a part of you has been taken away to help heal the pain? Shatia, a loving Canadian Lynx, started to hug trees. She couldn't climb the way a cat was created to climb with her claws because she had had the extremely painful experience of being declawed; however, she improvised by using hugs to climb to the top of a branch. Everyone needs a hug and is a great way to reconnect with your heart.
Cats are notorious for using positions to help them be in the right place at the right time. Shatia whispers to come close and lay on your back with your arms relaxed at your sides. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Visualize someone who has hurt you that you have not been able to release. See them standing in front of you as you reach out with your left arm and wrap it over their right shoulder. Wrap your right arm around their left side of their waist. Give them a hug and feel them hugging back. As they do the same with you, Shatia has just shown you how easy it is to give a heart hug as your hearts are physically in alignment with each other, connecting with a tangible energy flow that will continue after the hug is released.
A hug can communicate several feelings whether it be love, compassion, reassurance, friendship or just a friendly greeting. It is something we crave throughout our lives and can heal hearts. Send Shatia a heart hug for showing you how easy it is to position yourself to create a connection that can help you climb to the top of anything you are doing and help change the world.
