I know through doing my own personal and energetic work that when I close down or restrict my emotions (energy-in-motion) over time blocks can form and lowered sensitivity’s become “normal” instead of exceptions in my energy fields. Our hearts radiate love and function best when open. When we do not allow our love to flow or restrict it over time blocks can develop that hurt others and us.
I would like to share with you a short story that I think you may find clear and very true. I have seen this illustrated in my life again and again:
A Hindu saint who was visiting the river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled and asked:
'Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?'
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our calm, we shout.'
'But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner. ' asked the saint
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.
Finally the saint explained,
'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.
What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly, because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small...'
The saint continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper' and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other' and that's all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.'
He looked at his disciples and said.
'So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.'
In my own personal journey allowing my heart to stay open has at times been very challenging. I now find that it is no longer and option for me to close down and not let my energy and emotions flow. Doing this responsibly and maturely is also an ongoing practice that takes time and attention.
In looking inwardly, please notice if you have created more distance in loving yourself or others in your life than you would like.
If you are finding yourself not allowing your heart to radiate love effortlessly and freely or feel less free and restricted than you might like please look over the Sessions that I offer. It is my specialty to assist others in opening and clearing restrictions and blocks in their energy fields and to re-connect with the Higher-Self.
I now commit to being more and more conscious in each day and with each breath that I take. I choose to allow my emotions to flow freely and pay attention when I find myself restricting and closing down instead of opening and radiating. I do all I can to allow my heart to open ever wider and allow all the love around me to flow in and through me radiating outward effortlessly.
In Light, Love & Service,
