A couple of weeks ago I posted a story about the heart chakra and a lot of you were interested in me writing a post about it.
If you’re reading this, it’s because you want to know. If you want to know, then you’re probably looking for ways to heal your heart.
I think one of the essential things to a healed heart chakra is knowing yourSelf and creating healthy boundaries. Thanks to these actions, you’ll be able to receive love so much better.
And that’s one of the other “requirements” (if that’s the right word) for a healed/open heart: RECEIVING.
"May you attract someone who speaks your language so you don't have to spend your life translating your soul." - unknown
Receiving: selfish or essential?
Be honest with yourself: do you receive as much love as you give? I know I haven't received in a very long time. The reason? I was afraid of receiving. I closed my heart for the bad things. And while I thought I was protecting myself by closing off, I was closing off for the good stuff too.
In my honest opinion, receiving isn't selfish and knowing your worth is essential. When I went through this healing process I became aware of things I never would've thought about. I saw patterns. I recognized those patterns. One of those patterns was attracting emotional unavailable men because I was unable to receive. Can you see the irony in that? Others weren't hurting me; I was hurting myself.
When you finally allow yourself to receive the love you deserve (and not just love from others… especially the love from/for yourSelf!) your heart will glow. That’s the key:
- Set healthy boundaries so you don't lose your energy to things that no longer serve you.
- Remember your worth so you can receive the love you deserve.
Through this healing process past traumas will definitely come up. Things you may have been aware of for a while or things you never even thought about. Let them come through. heal through it.
Healing doesn't happen overnight. It takes time. It means showing up for yourSelf.
Rest. Reset. Rediscover.
Through healing yourself you will attract a love that is so magical.
I know because it happened to me. And I know it will happen to you as well. I know reading one blogpost won't magically heal all your trauma, but I hope it inspires you.
I hope it inspires you to collect your own wood so you may start your own fire. Through this fire you will send out light. Light that we all need in this world.
So if you keep that in mind, how can you see receiving as selfish?
Tips to heal your heart chakra.
Though it's hard to write everything in one blogpost, here are my most potent tips that helped for myself:
1/ Become aware of your heart chakra. Feel into it. Meditate on it. Visualize it.
2/ Journal about it: How does it feel? What color(s) does your heart chakra radiate?
3/ Write a conscious relationship map: What kind of partners did you attract in the past? What do they have in common? Can you see a link? (This is what opened my eyes to the emotional unavailable men I attracted in my life! Game changer.)
4/ Rest. No, you're not being lazy. Resting is also part of the healing process.
5/ Find your ritual. What feels good for you? Is it yoga, cacao ceremonies, cards, meditating, walking,... Could be anything. Start doing things so you can discover what it is your soul needs.
6/ Share about it. This is so powerful. It could be writing, talking, drawing,... Any form of expression that works best for you.
7/ Always do what fuels your soul.
I hope this blogpost was refreshing for your soul. Feel free to share your journey/experiences in the comments.
Sending you love, always
