LaTonia Hendry's life journey includes so much violence you'd believe she would give up, cave in. Instead she dedicates her life to encouraging and supporting other women who have experienced domestic and other violence, rape, and abuse to tell their stories. When we speak we empower ourselves! In this interview LaTonia does a deep dive with me on how: how did I not only survive, but triumph? You'll hear how my life's road map came to me in dreams when I was 5 years old; how an inherited ability in Celtic Visions comforted me when I was held hostage for three days by two armed felons; how making the choice to believe in what I was experiencing chartered a path into confidence and a vital life of harmony and well-being despite the long odds against it. LaTonia also questions me about Havening, the latest in Neuroscience and healing from trauma. I relate how and why I am working toward certification as a Havening Practitioner. LaTonia Hendry's own life journey includes so much violence you would forgive her for curling up and giving up. Instead, she dedicates her life to encouraging and supporting other women. Listen here and then to her podcasts for more inspiration on A Woman's Soul Restored.

In today's episode we combine picturing blue at our hearts, with some chanting if we choose, and pictures of the Earth. We use actual photos of our beautiful planet, or we use our inner visualization ability, or we switch between the two. Today's episode is a prayer for our beautiful home, Earth. 
Today's episode includes practice in chanting the seed syllable 'Hung'. Placing our minds in our hearts and visualizing deep, deep blue, the calming blue of space opens our hearts. This simple chant helps refocus us when we are caught in jealousy, rage, hatred or any other negative emotion.  Chanting Hum while focusing in our hearts also allows joy to bubble through! 
Sound is an active meditation in our daily lives. We speak and hope others hear. We listen and try to sense what their sounds make. Chanting besides being a healthy way to feel better, to intone gratitude or similar offerings to a Higher Power, reminds us of the endless variety of sounds we may make. It opens our ears to how we are creating sound. It allows us to practice making sounds that vibrate throughout our bodies. Chanting helps us practice flexibility of sound for the endless variety of ways our words, our bodies and our listening enrich our daily lives.

In this week's episode we focus once again on bringing our Vagus Nerve online. Then we imagine or recall a scene that brings us peace. Combining these two creates a double strand of peacefulness. Imagine: a five minute vacation whenever, wherever you wish!
