Heal Your Heart
Heal Your Heart
“We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.”
When people think of loss, the idea of finding meaning or anything beneficial from it seems contradictory. But whether it’s a breakup, divorce, or even death, there is more to be found, depending on how you hold the thoughts around it. It’s not that you can stop the loss from occurring; it’s that your thoughts change everything that comes after the loss.
Grief is a matter of the heart and soul. Grieve your loss, allow it in, and spend time with it. Suffering is the optional part. Remember that you come into this world in the middle of the movie, and you leave in the middle; and so do the people you love. Love never dies, and spirit knows no loss.
Since your thinking shapes the experience of your loss, make your intention to have a tender, loving experience of grief. And keep in mind that a broken heart is an open heart.
Let your thinking manifest hope to your sorrow. Choose your thoughts wisely. Be kind to yourself, and reflect on the loss with love. If you’re grieving the death of a loved one, remember how you loved them when they were present; know that you can continue loving them in their absence. You can go from grief to peace.
Endings are also beginnings. I encourage you to use the affirmations and teachings throughout our book, You Can Heal Your Heart, while working through a loss and also in every aspect of your life. Pay attention to your thinking, and change it in areas where you cannot find peace. By doing so, you’ll bring more happiness into your life and to those around you.
Hard times can serve as a reminder that our relationships are a gift. Loss can remind us that life itself is a gift.
