“The heart is like a flower – unless it is open it cannot release its fragrance into the world.”
This is another basic like the root chakra. To be able to give and receive love I believe we need to have open hearts. The apparent “downside” of having an open heart is the “danger” of getting hurt. In my 20’s I had a series of really unhealthy relationships causing me to close off to protect myself from further hurt. It took me some time to learn to open and trust again and in recent years have opened myself up on a completely different level, learning to embrace vulnerability and the lessons that come with it.
In yoga we have many poses that help us to open the heartchakra. Also the essential oils I am using can help with the healing of the heart. Journalling is another good practice to work through stored up emotional package.
Lets open our hearts and release our fragrance to the world. This world so badly needs open hearts and open minds.
Wishing you all a relaxing and beautiful weekend.
