Let's make 2016 a year of balancing our heart chakras by being good at both giving and receiving love. It is an important part of the energy cycle, and although it is admirable to give love, it is equally important to receive it. Sometimes we are so focused on giving, because we think that is what we are supposed to do in life, that we actually block love on the receiving end, and tire out our hearts.
I know for me this is particularly true when it comes to self-love. In my heart I know when there are things I need to do to take care of myself; times I need to slow down. Often instead I allow the busyness of life to keep going, and I don't stop and slow down and care for myself the way I need to in order to keep my joy awakened within. This is my goal in 2016, to stop blocking or putting off the quiet, calm, self-love when I need it. This is easier said than done, because this means sometimes not doing what I feel really needs to be done in order to slow down and care for myself. It's not the way of the world, but it doesn't change the calling within our soul to do this when it's time. Ignoring our soul's calling means turning away from the light, which is never in our best interest.
Receiving love can be difficult when we are not used to allowing it, but this the year we'll change that. Let's balance our lives, and in turn our inner joy. The thing is, the more you allow yourself to receive, the more you are able to give. It's one big circle of love. Whether you find yourself blocking love from others, putting up walls, or not taking any help when you need it, or if it's self-love you've really shut down. Take a moment to sit silently and reflect on it. How can you allow more love into your life? Where are you blocking it?
I know you have infinite love in you to give, but there's also infinite love in the universe for you to receive, and it's ready and waiting for you dear one. Allow the light in.
With so much love & gratitude,
