Let's be lighthearted...literally.
There's a reason we call humor, unsurpassed love and joy as being lighthearted. Our heart chakra resonates when we experience these emotions and they pour out of us! That's why we love being around people who are lighthearted and people enjoy being around us when we are, too.
Everything vibrates in this world, everything! And just as a reminder, LOVE is the highest vibrating thing there is. And yes! Love is a thing. It is tangible: How many of you could feel the love in the room during a wedding or the birth of a child? If you can feel it, it is tangible.
The hurts and insults we suffer in this earthly world cause us to shut our hearts off to love. The key to permanent healing is to be open to giving and receiving love. But it's much more than just saying, "OK I'll try to let love in."
It begins with honoring your feelings. That little space in your stomach (your solar plexus), houses your feelings. That's why we say, "Follow your gut" when attempting to make life-shifting decisions. "Follow your gut" actually means "follow your feelings" and don't let ego from your thoughts weigh in.
If you have stopped following your gut, if you have shut yourself off from feeling how you should move through your day, then your heart will become unresponsive to love. I'm not strictly speaking about romantic relationship love, though that is part of it. I'm speaking more about self-love, love of life, love for all that has come your way. Let me restate this:
If you have shut yourself off from moving forward by not following your feelings, then your heart will not be receptive to giving and receiving love. Period.
And then life becomes difficult, burdensome. We feel heaviness in our chests and that rock in the pit of our stomachs. That's NOT the way the Divine wants us to feel. But the good news is that we have the ability to change all of this.
Shift your thinking to feeling. Ask yourself these questions:
It's a lot more fun to be lighthearted, isn't it?
