How to Protect Your Heart
Freaky Friday: Every Friday a new post dealing with love, relationships, dating...and anything else the human soul may need answered.
It's been medically proven that when someone close to you dies it will make your heart beat irregularly for some time. It should naturally fix itself after sometime. The time frame was not given.
When we are going through a breakup or when we have to travel far from those we love we go through the same irregular heart beat. We have in some way lost someone.
On an energetically level, a death, separation or breakup has the same effect on our heart chakra.
For some, the loss that we feel is overwhelming--we never want to feel that pain again. So we begin to block out the heart chakra, sometimes unknowingly. We stop the flow of love. When we do this, we stop the flow of love coming to and from us. Not only love with other humans in all forms but love of things we enjoy or would like in our lives. Money for example. Money is just another form of energy. Of love. It should flow to and from you.
So how do we protect our hearts, still keeping our hearts open to the possibilities and allowing love to flow to and from us? We do this by activating our inner power, or as I like to think of it, our force shield. Think of your body as a space ship from Star Trek...I can't be the only one who is into this. Having a powerful shield allows you to be in your power and protect not only your heart but your other organs and chakras. Your power or shield protects your energy.
Where is the shield located? Your solar plexus. Your stomach area. So how do you energetically strengthen your solar plexus? By being true to yourself. By not caring what others think of you. By knowing who you are and what you believe in, and by fighting for what you believe in. You don't have to do this in a violent way. In fact, the best way is peaceful and with purpose. Saying no to something you don't want to do and saying yes to something you do. Saying no and meaning it. Not doing something to make someone else happy or to keep the peace, but because you find joy in doing what is asked. If you don't find joy, don't do it. Say no. Don't sacrifice your energy, your positive vibrations so that someone else can feel better. If you are energetically strong then those around you will naturally become stronger.
For a quick fix, place a hand or two on your belly and stand in your power. And when I say power, I don't mean something you yield. I mean, who you are naturally. The unforgiving, comfortable in your own skin self. That's power right there--to not care what others think of you and to be able to do and act the way in which you believe.
So, know that if your solar plexus is strong your heart will be protected. If you know this, then you can take risks and live in the love. You may have fears that slip through the cracks but you have the strength to combat them. Have a strong will and this will protect your heart while at the same time allowing the love energy to flow to and from you.
