I have often struggled with this saying- when hearing this from someone or reading about living a heart-centered life somewhere I’ve often thought, “Okay- I’m ready, but what does this really mean?”
Here’s what I suggest you do to first connect with your heart. Close your eyes and breathe, letting go of all of the thoughts in your head. Imagine you are breathing from your heart like a flower bud opening and blossoming- breathe into your heart and exhale from your heart. Imagine it expanding fully into your chest. Stay with this for a while- keep breathing and just imagine. Envision your heart taking over your chest. Stay here for a bit. Imagine yourself connecting with with everything- the trees, mother earth, the sky, light from the sun and moon. Sit with this for a while and just tap into how this feels. Feel the love and energy that surrounds you and hold that feeling for a few minutes.
How did that feel? I always feel better by doing that exercise.
Living a heart-centered life is being centered and connected to love that constantly surrounding you. Living from a place of connection to all things. We are all made up of the same stuff, energy. When we are connected to that which surrounds us we can come from that safe loving place. It just takes a few minutes of breathing, imagining and connecting.
You can make a decision every day to live a heart centered life. You can choose to get centered and pay attention to all the love that surrounds you. You can use your life to help others connect to their higher purpose as well. Pay attention to your relationships, first to your relationship with yourself and then to your relationship to those around you. Spend some time today really looking at your relationships. Do they serve you or drain you? What do you need to let go of? What do you need to bring in to your life?
When you spend some time thinking about what heart centered means to you- and how you want to live- you have to get your ego and mind out of the way and focus on feelings on openings and looking at where you may be stuck. You have to look at your true essence and where you come from.
This is the big HALLMARK month “Valentines” what valentine can you give yourself?
Open your heart! Give yourself that rather than a box of chocolates, connect with your partner, go to a deeper place with your friends, families, yourself. This is your time to live from your heart.
A shaman can help you with this by opening your heart chakra, disconnecting the ties that bond you to your old ways. Clearing out the cords that connect you so deeply with the energies that don’t work for you anymore. I can help you connect to yourself on a deeper level. You just need to be open and ready for whatever it is that is supposed to happen.
Take this month to really focus on LOVE – CONNECTION – BEAUTY and WHOLENESS.
