Don’t be afraid to fall, ’cause when you lay down you can really feel yourself lifted.

Three years ago on Valentines Day, my family lost our newborn son Joseph Phoenix Crockett.  Not long after I wrote a song for him called “Where Are You Now”.  This year I’ve recorded it and made it available through UseMusic.org  to benefit The Dougy Center  and their work supporting children, teens, young adults, and their families grieving a death.

Get Where Are You Now and support real healing.

Stream Where Are You Now in full at Soundcloud.

 We felt immeasurably blessed by ‘Angel Joe’ even in his brief visit.  Everyone has or will lose someone they love.  The loss of a baby is very common, and one of the least spoken of.

In the weeks since it was first posted, Where Are You Now has quietly become one of the highest grossing songs at UseMusic.org, yet very few people have heard this song before now.  I know you’ll be touched by this song.  Please keep up with the release On Facebook and Twitter and share the healing.

Thanks, Josephoenix.

How Your Life Is Trying To Heal You, Part 1

We’re all human and we all carry baggage.  Try as we might, there’s only so perfect we can get!

I know, I know, its not your fault.  You were born this way.  You have to be true to yourself.

Your troubles came out of nowhere.  No matter how much time goes by, you still get a feeling in your body when you drive by where the incident happened.

And maybe you agree with my friend Joseph Estevez, who told me, “After 30 you can’t blame your parents.”

You’re all right.  And you’re alright.

I want to help you out with some “21st Century Human Skills”.  Today begins Part 1 of a 3-part series on our hidden and perhaps not-so-hidden wounds.  They’re real, they’re visible in your energy field, and they matter.

Right now we’re going to lay the foundation with why and how we ‘bury our stuff’ and ‘pack our baggage’.  Eventually we’ll get to the miraculous nature of how our baggage is constantly resurfacing and showering us with healing opportunities!

How and Why

We Bury Our Baggage

Ideally, when we suffer, we take the time to feel it, do what we can to change our situation, and cry away the rest or just let it go.  But when we can’t – we’re too busy, the pain is too much or we’re too young or don’t have the support we need to make it through – we have to stuff it.  Be macho.  Be tough.  Set it aside.  Block it.

This can be good when your kids really need you.  This is good if you’re in danger and just have to get to safety before you can let go.  This is good if you’re too young and the pain is so much that it might tear you apart.

This is bad if you never get back to it.  If it stays stuck.  If you forget.  If you get used to the pain.  If you come to like the pain.  If you prefer its comfort to the discomfort of being free of it.  These things happen.

Baggage = Blocks

When we block our feelings it shows up in our energy field.  This is part of why I have a job.  I’m sensitive and I pick up on unspoken stuff.  So do most sensitive people.  I also have the capacity and skills to address it more directly in a healing session.  If you can call intuitively tapping in to someone’s field from hundreds – or even thousands – of miles away ‘direct’!

You are incredibly complex, and the further down the rabbit hole I go the harder it is to explain.  Different wounds effect different aspects of ourselves differently. Here’s the skinny:

When we block our physical energies we may feel weak in our bones, muscles, tendons and tissues.  Our body may get stiff and our muscles hard.

When we block our feelings it looks to my mind’s eye like a dull fog.  Too much of this and we feel depressed.  We are literally depressing our feelings so they can’t flow naturally from one to the next.  Or we may feel nothing.  People who drink a lot often have this look to me.  When we obsess over things it is our minds working hard to block our feelings.  We may become very educated and successful before this strategy begins to fail us.

When we block our thoughts we cannot think clearly, may feel confused, or have difficulty understanding, learning, or tapping into our intuition.  Our mind may cycle through the same thoughts over and over, trying to deal with daily life in a way that may or may not be working well for us.

When we block our hearts it forms a sticky tar of energy.  So does smoking a lot of pot.  If we block the inevitable pain that is a part of all relationships, we block our love.  We get hard.  We care less.  We may think we don’t care at all.  Beware people who are too cool, because they aren’t warm.

When we block our connection to truth, insight, inspiration, joy, and the divine, we cannot find our place in the world.  Meaning, happiness, abiding satisfaction and peace are hard to come by.

Everyone has an excellent reason for blocking what they block.  If you wore their shoes you might have done the exact same thing.

By the time people come to me for the first time, especially if they’ve never had energy work before, whatever they’ve been doing isn’t working.  Sometimes its something simple, and often its something complex.  We peel it back, layer by layer, until we find the root.  With this process comes understanding.  With this process comes clarity.  And compassion, for yourself and others.  And healing.

And the whole world becomes a better place, all because you were blocked.

All of this begs some background into the energy work I do, but I’m going to save it for down the line.  I’ve got to have something to write about after I finish this series in March!  Next month’s topic: The simple, beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking ways our blocks and baggage shape who we are.

Final Thoughts

Healing your world,

your country, your community,

and your family begins

with healing yourself.

One thing all of my clients have in common is that in ways big and small you’re all trying to make the world a better place.  Healing and music are part of how I do that.  I’m always honored to support you with the notes I play and the hands I lay.  Thank you for having me along on your journey!

In Health and Healing,
