A Letter To Your Heart
Dear Heart, Are you there? If so, please ask your mind to be still and silent for the next few minutes so we can have a true heart-to-heart conversation. I wrote this letter for you, and I’m so thankful that you’re here and that we get to spend this time together. I have something very important I’d like to share with you.
I know that you have been hurt. I know that you have been taken for granted and even taken advantage of. I know that you have given all your love and felt the pain of not having that love returned to you. I know that sometimes you ache when those you love don’t treat you according to your wishes, and I know that sometimes, it feels like you are all alone.
But you are not alone. And you are not broken. You are here; you are alive and beating strong.
You are so full of love, and you have so much to give that you don’t know what to do with yourself sometimes. That’s what hurts the most. The weight of the love you have within you that you’re holding back because of those past experiences. And the suffering from those hurts that you’re not letting go. You know which ones I’m talking about. They were hard at the time, but we both know they were brought to make you stronger and to teach you something about who YOU really are.
I am writing you this letter from my heart to yours to tell you that I see you. I know who you really are, and I want to tell you that it’s ok to come out of hiding. I can’t promise that you will never be challenged and that you’ll always get exactly what you want, but I can promise you that you will have a richer, more fulfilling life when you let your love come forth. When you give it away unconditionally and trust that it will come back to you in abundant measure, even if it comes from places and people you don’t expect, you will be filled, and you will see what your true purpose is.
The world needs more of your love. That special, warm blend of goodness that only you can provide. We need it, but only you can choose to give it. And you know who else needs it?
Yup, you. You need your love too. And all this time, while you’ve been keeping it from others out of fear of getting hurt, you’ve also been keeping it from yourself. You see, you’re most alive when you are open and giving. When you force your doors shut and keep to yourself, that only increases the feelings of solitude and suffering.
My hope is that, together, we can make this a new beginning. Let’s make today the start of a new story for us and our bottomless wells of love. Let it be a story of giving, of sharing, of connecting, of shining our light, and of serving others. Let it be a story of triumph and transformation.
We were born to love with all our hearts.
Start with you. Give yourself all your love. Don’t hold anything back; don’t save any for later. Turn your attention inward and shower yourself with warmth and kindness for no good reason at all.
I mean ALL of it. Soon, you will be overflowing with joy, and that love will grow and multiply. From there, you will have more than enough to give to others, and that love will bring forth more love and more love.
The more you open up and give your love away, the more alive and fulfilled you will feel. I promise.
Sending you all my love to get the pilot light in you heart switched on.
Thanks for spending this quality time with me, for reading this letter, and for being open to receiving this message.
Write me back if you like :)
