Often I hear from people who have been deeply hurt, and the pain they have endured has caused them to close off their heart out of fear of being hurt again. I agree that when you open your heart it's very possible to get hurt again, but how does opening your heart make you both more vulnerable and yet at the same time, more powerful?
For most of us, we have come to some kind of realization that we are spiritual beings living a physical life, and not just physical being living a spiritual life. Science now supports us in that view, as it is now able to measure what was once immeasurable. Your heart's magnetic energy has been measured to be 5,000 times greater than the magnetic energy of your brain, and the heart's electric energy is 60 times greater than that of the brain!
What does that mean for you? Your heart affects everything you think, everything you do, and is the powerhouse of electromagnetic energy that connects us to every cell in our bodies and with everyone we encounter. There's a synchronicity between our hearts and our brains, as well as between our hearts and other people's brains, and the energy is BEYOND POWERFUL. It is the key to all abundance, all healing, all relationships, all communication with divine Source, and all love, and if you close it down, you close yourself off from your own life source of energy.
Don't you want to learn again how to live in the natural flow of abundance that is there for all of us? Opening you heart, even though it can be scary, is the key to flooding your being with that kind of power. You had it when you were a young child, but were trained to ignore it along with very real visions of your "imaginary" friends.
One way to open your heart very quickly and easily is to place one hand on your heart and the other hand on your third eye, and imagine light travelling between your third eye and your heart, while breathing slowly and deeply through the nose. Do this for just a couple of minutes whenever you can, and you will start to feel and see results as things in your life start to change. Watch for even the smallest changes, and you will train yourself for positive change to flow into your life.
