The heart is at the center of our being. When we are in our heart we feel. So often, we live in fear of what we feel, closing off the communication between ourselves and our hearts. We become distant and cold, disconnected and afraid.
With opening into our hearts, we open into feelings and emotions that can scare us. Allowing, just simply allowing and fully experiencing the feeling frees us from its grip. Feelings that are true, such as love, remain and feelings such as pain and fear seem to disappear (these feelings just transform into love, allowing us to grow into love more fully). It can be scary, yet that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.
Finding attributes in others that we can appreciate can help us to open our hearts to them. People respond to this. When your heart is open, it helps others to be more open, too. I see this is my clients, with whom it is important to begin building trust even before we say hello.
May we find new ways to love, to open our hearts and allow.
