Sharing about missing my mother last night helps me keep my heart open to witness the changes in my own life. It inspires me to reach into my toolbox I share with clients. I meditated, journaled, and free form wrote this morning to help move the sadness through.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery ♥
Our heart is a gateway to love, a container where past hurts are stored. It is from this place we find unconditional love, compassion and kindness. Sometimes when we find ourselves experiencing change that feels out of our control, the heart reacts protectively. It can appear as a tight feeling in our chest. We find ourselves feeling powerless, wanting answers, asking “why me?” and “now what?” We turn our attention to what we don’t have. We ask, what have we done to deserve this?
If you find yourself in uncertain times where your mind is swimming with thoughts, know that you have choice. While you may not be able to choose how much money is in your bank account, whether you are single by choice, divorced, or out of work, you can choose your state of mind.
Focusing on love as we face changes versus fear is a choice.
Choosing love consciously allows us to focus on our blessings vs. our shortcomings.
