I was so afraid of being hurt again…
Opening your heart again after being betrayed or hurt can feel really scary.
There is this transformative energy in the air, especially with this past weekend’s Harvest Moon/lunar eclipse.
Can you feel it?
There is tremendous opportunity right now to let go of the heavy shackles that have kept you stuck from the past.
A time when karmic debts can be paid.
And a lightness into the new is inevitable.
But sometimes we can get in our own way from allowing these opportunities in.
I was speaking with a woman awhile back who shared how uncomfortable it felt to even think about opening up to a new relationship.
Even though she really was yearning for a life partner.
For the sake of privacy, let’s call her *Ann.
Ann had been taken advantage of several times before and she felt this push-pull between wanting to leap into the dating scene again after years…and just focusing on her career and not bothering.
When she asked my advice on what she could do to open her heart if she entertained the first option, here’s what I shared…
What to believe to open your heart…
It boils down to this: know + believe that you are safe.
When we don’t feel safe, we hide ourselves.
We give from a protective, limited space that says, “I don’t want to give too much in case you try to take too much or hurt me.”
It is based in a scarcity, not-enough energy and it repels the very thing you seek: love.
What can you do if you realize you’ve been operating from this space?
It basically comes down to reminding our inner Child that the grown up Goddess within you is in charge.
It’s not that you never feel afraid.
It’s that your belief that you are accepted and safe even with those fears is stronger.
In that space, when you’ve been reassuring your inner Child that you are enough.
That there is always enough of anything to go around.
That it is safe to give and receive love, and that you’ll know quickly if there’s someone that isn’t helpful to engage in relationships with.
When we don’t take care of the inner kid in us, that’s when it’s easy to sabotage.
To think the Universe is not on your side, and that you have to keep your guard up all the time.
To go out with inappropriate partners.
To close yourself off from opportunities to meet new people.
To over-indulge in distractions like TV, overeating or toxic thoughts that keep you from taking action you know you need to take.
It all starts with a decision: 1) Are you willing to reassure your inner child that you will take care of it? 2) Are you willing to open your heart, even when you don’t “do it perfectly?”
If so, say YES in the comments!
