The other day, I found an internet page I had bookmarked a while ago and forgotten about. It was all about opening the heart. The author talked about how, after only four days of using the technique to open her heart, something amazing happened and she met a special person who came into her life and taught her how to love unconditionally.
I started using this technique two days ago and something amazing happened to me. At the age of fifty-seven years, my eighty-nine year old mother told me “I love you” for the first time, ever, I talked about that in my second post yesterday. So, I’m sold on this opening the heart business, because that’s blown my mind.
Firstly, there was a list of qualities to tell if your heart is open:
- You have a song in your heart.
- You smile and laugh easily.
- You show affection to others.
- You love to hug.
- You see the good in people.
- You ignore the bad in people.
- You are open to new experiences.
- You accept people just the way they are.
- You show interest in others.
- You are in love with life.
- You attract awesome situations and events into your life.
And then there’s a list of what things may look like if your heart is closed:
- You judge others harshly.
- You find fault in others.
- You avoid new experiences out of fear.
- You feel paralyzed.
- You feel stuck.
- You’re full of fear and doubt.
- You’re mean.
- You are critical of yourself and others.
- You show little affection to others.
- You are reserved and protected.
- You keep to yourself.
And looking at those lists, I thought, for the most part, when all is well, I’m like the open hearted list and when I’m depressed, I’m like the closed hearted list. Is it possible that depression closes my heart, or is depression the result of my heart closing? Hmmm.
I know I’ve built a wall around my heart and kept people at arms length most of my life. I’ve been working on changing that in the last year. Maybe the depression is my body’s way of getting me to finally throw off all my fears of being hurt and let go of all the protective devices I’ve been holding onto. There are times I get scared of being hurt or being abandoned by the people in my life who mean the most to me, it’s all about a lack of trust. It’s fear replaying from past traumas because it thinks its protecting me, but its now causing more harm that its doing good.
So, I thought, what if I use the technique to open my heart every time I can feel it closing? Here’s the technique:-
Visualise your heart, notice its shape and what it looks like, maybe you may see there’s something covering it?
Now tell your heart:-
I see you there.
I feel how you feel.
I love you no matter what.
Keep telling your heart that. Meanwhile, call in light from the higher planes to penetrate your heart. This light may arrive in any colour, that’s fine. It will provide unconditional love and energise your heart to open it. You can also call on your guides or the Archangels or whomever is appropriate for you to ask to support the process, saying:-
I am opening my heart.
Help me to open my heart.
It’s a simple technique and it needs to be done last thing before sleep and first thing upon waking every day.
When I started using this, my mood was getting low and, no matter how I tried, I couldn’t summon a visualised image of my heart, it was as if it just wasn’t there. In a way, that was my answer, my heart disappeared into the darkness. No matter, I asked for help and poured all my energy into my desire to open my heart. Today, I started to see a faint light shape and I know, as I continue, my heart will become lighter and lighter until it is a veritable beacon of light and love. Constantly.
And, if today, my mother is telling me she loves me, for the first time after all these years, then who knows what wonders tomorrow will bring?
