The Heart Chakra
When you look in the mirror, what do you say to yourself? Have you listened in to your thoughts or words? Do you appreciate your beautiful eyes or do you just look at the wrinkles beside them? The heart chakra is about loving yourself unconditionally. Detaching from those negative tones will allow your heart to expand, creating space for more love to rush in. When you look at another person, do you find their impurities? Most often we do not notice them in another person, so allow yourself to treat You the same. Do not wait for your body to be perfect in order for it to gain your love. Release all judgements and just love, just love.
Love is the essence of life. It is the ultimate healer, the most powerful teacher, the inspiration for amazing work. Love allows us to treat others and things with great respect and honour. An open heart feels compassion and empathy for both self and others. The hearts task is to find balance in all relationships; mind and body, self and other, light and shadow, masculine and feminine. The result of this balance is peace.
Take a deep breath into the belly, allow this air to fill every corner of your heart. Allow it to cleanse your hurts, clear your mind and dissolve all blocks that keep your heart closed. Release the ego and allow the heart to take over. Fall in love with life itself, not with attachments to people or objects.
Practice gratitude daily, find the 5 things you are thankful for in your day, this alone expands the heart and allows more to be thankful for, to flow into your life.
Forgiveness, is sometimes a hard pill to swallow, but if someone has hurt you, do not allow them to dwell in your heart as anger. Forgive them, release the hooks that pain has caused your heart. Find peace and open your heart to love once more.
I love myself and others unconditionally.
My heart is open to receive the energy of love.
I honour my connection to all that is.
