HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU OPEN YOUR HEART TO ONE THAT IS CLOSED?
As the current energy transforms some of us into an awakening of an open heart we find our thoughts centered less in our heads and more in our emotional body. We are becoming deeply feeling and less judgmental of those around us. More loving and more forgiving than we have been in the past,we become determined to find and create our own happiness and joy via the heart center of us.
But an uncomfortable by product of this, is that as our heart opens so does our ability to see truth, all truth. Sometimes the truth of another's heart no longer resonates with us once we are opened as never before. Yes, dropping in to our own authenticity often reveals others falsity or lack. We see where someone is hard hearted and cold and closed to love. Perhaps love has become a manipulation or detriment in that relationship. We have no judgment of them, and we can reason that they are acting out their wounds and defenses from their own karma as we all do and even this makes us compassionate. But our open and pure heart is now able to see where love has been intellectualized and has become a bargaining or arrangement.
While we are ready to love from a new place of understanding and emotion inside of us, there is much that still lives in the old house we built. We want to give more love to ourselves and are less willing to share in a less than deserving relationship, but there is love there too. So, How much should we give to these old connections that now fall short of our new desires?
We can't drag someone kicking and screaming to awakening. We can't abolish someones fears of love by loving them harder. We can't make someone secure by promising eternity. We can't make someone kind by being kind to them no matter what. We can't make someone truthful by always being honest. We can't make someone generous by giving them everything. We can't make someone affectionate by hugging them tighter.
And yet our newly opened and deeply loving heart wants to do just that for this person. But we want to give all that to ourselves now too.
What is the answer?
The answer is simple and like so many simple things, it's implementation is very hard. . We are often told don't let your heart rule your head. But I have come to believe that is exactly what must be done. When we drop into our heart and listen the higher self speaks. The being within that knows all comes to life and shows us the way. Call it conscious, intuition or emotion but we must listen to our heart above head.
Our heart will never let us love to our detriment like our head does because the ego resides in our head. Its cluttered with all kind of junk and noise. Our head tells us we need things and puts us in lust and power struggles. Our head makes us need the last word, our head makes us wait till the check clears and kids grow up and Mom gets better, and the dog heals. Our head tells us we won't find another or can't disrespect our parents or must tolerate our children. And so we find ourselves screamed at or neglected or bullied or unheard or deprived or abused by someone we are afraid to be without or afraid to confront. Why? Because we are patient and loving and kind? No that's is not why. It's because we are letting the fear in our head overrule the love we have in our hearts for ourselves. That fear keeps telling us we can find love in places where love does not reside.
Our open and deeply loving heart knows this truth. When we drop into it the answer is revealed. It is in the power of unlimited love for ourselves that we become powerful! We stop judging ourselves and our choices and become courageous enough to change them. And it is only by doing so and loving ourselves in a healthy way that we teach others how to love us deeply and authentically. As soon as we treat ourselves differently thus we are treated. By giving to ourselves all the love in our hearts that we have given away to others we begin to receive it from others too. By giving ourselves what we desire and deserve we receive it from our universe.
So HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU OPEN YOUR HEART TO ANOTHER WHO IS CLOSED? As much as is healthy without bringing dishonor to yourself. Nothing is more important than honoring ourselves. Nothing! The universe directly responds to this. If we treat ourselves like crap or allow ourselves to be treated badly the universe gives us more of the same. If we treat ourselves lovingly and kindly the universe gives us more of the same. We can be kind and loving, but never love to our own detriment. By using our open heart to see the truth of where we should be and what right action is we become masters of this. Soon we are practicing and creating a life that is balanced in what we desire and deserve. In this we bring more love and joy into our lives. Our living example is the vibration that helps those who are closed to open their hearts more fully. Preserving our honor and self love becomes even more important when we realize how greatly it effects not just us but the collective of all humans. That is so beautiful to think about and why it is so important for us to do the work we need to heal and become love. So make the effort to listen to what resides in your heart and deeply feel on an emotional level instead of in the brain. I'll bet the answers come easier!
I send the intention of peace and love to you all as we ascend during these retrogrades and energy transmutations of the heart. May you travel from head to heart and find the truth and connection of your higher selves with gentle ease! Namaste" my friends Peace and love Georgia Rose
