When Your Heart is Broken Open
It’s your feelings, not your intellect, that teach you about your relationship to yourself and to those you love. When a relationship ends, or you let go of someone who is important and special to you, you can feel sad, lost and alone.
Your heart is broken open.
To make sense of your feelings, you can go inward to those deep places where you harbour unspoken feelings, and bring them to light, so you can be fully present and fully connected to who you are right now.
In your feelings of pain and loss, you can come to understand that you may feel familiar feelings that you have felt in the past. Be aware of your desire to resist or deny these painful feelings, to put your defenses up, or to distract yourself with activities that take your mind off your pain.
Feel. And realize that you have a profound need to relate to one another — to love and be loved, just as you are.
When your heart is broken open, it makes room for the depth of your pain and the ever-present energy of healing that can enter your heart now.
A heart broken open is an expanded heart. Your heart is unafraid to shed tears, to be vulnerable, to make sense of the pain, and open itself once again.
When your heart is broken open, you receive an invitation to become real — to realize that your life is precious and that you can learn again to be present, open and receptive to the love that exists within yourself and to others in the world.
Together, we can make sense of the feelings in your heart and continue on your expanded, heart-centred path of peace and healing.
