I am constantly inspired by my clients.
Several months ago a young man showed me the power of being truly committed to living with an open heart.
His girlfriend had just ended their relationship a few days before his session. She had been overwhelmed by multiple life challenges and had decided she just could not be in a relationship anymore.
It hit him hard.
His intention for the healing was to keep his heart open as he processed the breakup. This meant that even though he was experiencing an enormous amount pain, he did not want to emotionally shut down or project anger toward his former lover. He was consciously and courageously choosing not to create a story around the incident to protect himself; that she was bad and he was a victim. He wanted to hold the whole situation in love.
It was a profound and powerful healing. Many old beliefs, fears, and emotional wounds came up to be cleared.
It was also interesting to note that his commitment to keeping his heart open appeared to pay off. The weeks that followed the session were abundant in almost every aspect of his life. Maybe the clearing of old patterns allowed him to receive more. Whatever the reason, the universe opened up for him creatively, emotionally and financially.
Since that session, when I start to feel myself becoming judgmental or emotionally closing down, (like after I listen to the news) I remember the courage of my client.
