The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched-they must be felt with the heart.Helen Keller
What is heart space anyway? The heart is where we experience and carry grief, where we carry our concern for others; for those things that touch us deeply. We know how it feels to be “heart-sick” or “heart-broken.” When we allow ourselves to feel these emotions, to allow them to touch our lives and to live from this authentic place, where we experience both deep joy and tremendous pain, we can truly connect with each other. While most of us would like to avoid pain and tragedy, these experiences often make us reach out to give and receive care for and from each other.
When we are not centered in our heart space we may have trouble connecting deeply in relationships (that includes with ourselves) and we may seem cold and distant to people or situations that may call for a tender heart, a kind word or generous deed.
Today’s practice is all about centering our hearts that we may connect with ourselves and others in one of the most authentic ways…..With Love, Kindness & Compassion.
Here is your Day 8 Practice for centering your heart.
