Have you experienced intense heartbreak and felt you would never get over it? I have and it hurts like hell as if there is no tomorrow. Nothing helps and all you want to do is hide under your duvet forever and a day.
This is where connecting to your heart chakra helps you begin to heal to experience love and compassion again in your heart. It takes time to be able to open up again to feel love within and from others. You will experience your good days where you will feel like you are on top of the world again and your bad days where it all feels completely futile.
When the pain is so great, you shut yourself off to heal. You close down and withdraw to lick your wounds. It feels like the world is against you creating feelings of anger, despair, frustration, and a sense of isolation. It is goes something like this: why can’t the world see that I am hurting and hurt with me? I felt like that after my father died. I couldn’t see my way out of it all for months on end.
It was easier to close off from the world and not receive anything from anyone. In addition, you are unable to give anything as all your energy is going into coping with each day. For a long time, you prefer not to let anyone get close to you to protect yourself from further pain and hurt. It is easier to not let anyone get close to you to protect yourself from further pain and hurt. You curl up like a ball and shut down.
opening up to love and compassion
However, in order to heal, you will need to open your heart up and allow love back into your life with understanding and without judgement of yourself. There is no point comparing yourself with others. Grief, hurt, sadness and pain is personal. You need to be willing to let go and surrender yourself to your loving, kind, compassionate and forgiving heart.
Take your time by playing it safe and start by giving and receiving a smile, or with a kind word or gesture. It is important to be loving and compassionate with yourself as you step out into the world again.
