Soul Musings/Day 14: Heart Openers


What better practice this time of year than to do heart opening.

Whether in a yoga class, in meditation, smiling at a stranger or gazing in someones eyes.

There is yet another practice that holds the possibility to go deep within your own heart and connect to those in your life that have been, or are, challenging relationships….a practice that emerged for me during yoga class today.

The greatest gift you can give anyone is that of acknowledgement for the absolute love they are and have always been for you…even in the midst of difficulty and estrangement.

In your imagination see that you are meeting each one of these people one after another and as you walk up to them and look into their eyes say the acknowledgement with open heart, embracing them and breathing together, then pulling back and with hands at your heart bowing.

That person will be replaced by the next person, and the next, and the next, until you have a circle of those that have passed through your life and left you changed forever….who you are today.

They have all played their part in your unfolding life and you in theirs.

Perhaps it is time as we near the end of the year to open the space for heart and body opening release and lovingly let them go…… or invite them back in breathing peace.




Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time

Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day.  Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.

Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship.  Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
