Is it safe to keep your heart open?
All of us carry heart wounds (having been dumped, left, abandoned, betrayed…) & as such have learned to close our hearts for protection. But that emotional process lacks logic. I mean, how could closing off a source of energy actually protect us?
It’s not like the feelings we don’t want to feel somehow magically disappear. They get locked inside. Along with our spirit.
When we consider what the energy of our heart really is – our life force – it makes a compelling case for us to want to learn how to keep our heart open. Which is actually more like the unlearning of how not to shut it down.
