The magic I have always been looking for eluded me until I agreed to live with an open heart. The magic I wanted was a quick fix, an easy button, a shortcut. But when it comes to wellness I've had to pretty much show up and do the work. That's that. The magic comes on the other side. Ready to find it?
You’re going to have to open your heart.
You heard me alright, darling.
You're going to have to open your heart.
That is what I said.
That’s crazy, you say?
I can’t argue with you there.
It’s too broken, you say?
Then I guess you’ve got a head start.
Because the broken places are your way in.
You want to know how?
That’s a very good question, darling.
I could say something cliche,
which is something I used to do.
But, never mind all that.
It’s not about the how.
It’s about the when.
Because when you’re ready,
When it’s time,
you will find out how.
But it’s not about the how,
I think I said that already.
It’s about the why
and the why not.
I’ll put it this way.
How much longer can you hold on, darling?
Another year like this? Another day? Another minute?
give me a number.
How long can you keep everything together?
Because you don’t have to anymore.
You don’t have to work so hard.
It will take some faith
(in the process).
It will be real
and it will be scary.
(but it will not be real scary).
It will take tears
and it will take time,
but it will not take you down
and it will not take you out.
When you’re ready,
your heart will open,
the pain will release
and your heart of stone
(that knotted, tangled lump)
will be worth ten times it’s weight in freedom.
Instead of constant misery,
you’ll have lasting expansion
and deep compassion for every single ounce
you’re going to have to open your heart.
Are you functioning incredibly well on the surface level but underneath that thin veil carrying a burden of anxiety, depression, rage or pain? Are you asking yourself how much longer you can live like this? Do you find yourself longing to check out, run away or hide? Do you wonder why certain things upset you over and over? Does your childhood overshadow your adult life?
Is your heart pounding its way into your ears and threatening to escape your chest as you read this?
Are you dying to know more?
All of these things might be a sign that it’s time to get the support and healing your heart deserves.
I offer individual counseling over the phone. This heart opening invitation is actually an offer to begin working with me. My counseling approach will bring tenderness to the rough places. It's hard work but the results are like a thousand little kisses all over your soul. (And that's a modest number).
If you’re willing to be willing, send me a quick message and I’ll do the rest.
Just curious? I offer free consultations. Let me answer all your questions!
