Open your heart.... how about starting with deep unconditional love for yourself, for your body? Have you ever been grateful to your feet and legs for carrying you around all day? For your gorgeous behind for providing a loving seat cushion for your frame to rest on? Grateful for your eyes that can see beauty in all things? There are places in the world where women ONLY love EVERY part of their bodies. No distortions from the media about what shape or weight we should be. You can love your body just the way it is and begin healing your heart chakra.
Enter the room heart first and feel the compassion for each person as they do their best. Love them anyways. Start with yourself, fill your cup so you have lots to share.
As I write this, I am challenged to love more fully too. The universe occasionally tosses me a curve to see if I am walking the walk. And I know, it's not always easy. That's ok. Find a person in your life who really gets you, really sees your heart and thank them for being in your life and reminding you about your beautiful heart :)
I'd be willing to bet you are that for someone too.
