Healing Hearts

“What happens when people open their hearts? They get better.” - Haruki Murakami

Sometimes in our lives we experience pain that can marks our experience in such a way that we are forever changed. The result can sometimes mean that we may need time to re-examine what we may be telling ourselves about our experience and about ourselves. Pain can redefine who we are in good ways and very tragic ways. But there is a magical energy that always draws the pieces together in meaningful ways. The pure energy of love.

But no matter how pain and trauma has impacted my life, I know that resonating with the pure energy of love can be a magical healing force. Love makes me feel the most alive that I know. And it opens new ways of seeing myself and others. It always yields the most satisfying experiences in this life.

The love that I speak about doesn’t have to be romantic love only. For many, love can be loaded with so much selfishness and negativity when it is used to satisfy only one person in the relationship. But when both are open to express love in a way that is only giving, not only is this the most satisfying, but it is healing and transformative. 

When I receive love from another that I didn’t demand, that I didn’t request or expect, only then do I feel the immense magical satisfaction and purity that unconditional love offers. It is an offering with nothing expected in return. It is the definition of a true gift. And this kind of gift truly makes an imprint on my heart. 

Thank you to my life for always opening doors of loving opportunities. Thank you to my life for showing me that resonating with love is so much more important than demanding it. And thank you to my life for always allowing me to see that there is great love all around me always. 

I am love. I am joy. I am always and forever will be good. And so are each one of you. I love you.
