If you are really listening, if you are really understanding the simplicity of life, you will find that all that you could ever want is already inside of you. and guess what? you don't need anything either because you are what you need. its like saying you need god but how can you need something that is already a part of you? its only a matter of shifting your perception.
Like the sun, the heart is central making it the realm of source energy. the heart is the source of love, peace, joy, balance and creation. opening and Maintaining your awareness on the heart will give you a life of miracles. It is Important that when we recognize the power of the Heart that we do our best to keep it open no matter what. it is vital to your own health to keep the heart open unconditionally. To be Unconditionally opened means you stay open no matter what happens. as humans we have been very conditional. we open our hearts only during the right conditions, and when somehow our peace becomes disrupted, we close up and store those energies inside, holding on to them for the rest of our lives and Every time we become triggered we close up again and again.
do you ever wonder where pain, illness and dis-ease come from? it all comes from the unconscious choice of carrying emotional baggage. it comes from closing our heart. blockages in the body manifest into many ailments. you see, we are so powerful. we are so powerful that even we can block off from receiving the abundance and blessings that life wants to offer us.
did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women? the heart has the power to heal when opened and it has the power to destroy when closed.
if you want to heal, you must remain open. the more you open up, the more receptive you become to the bounty of life. if you can learn to relax, trust, appreciate and accept where you are in life and center yourself in your heart, the more receptive you can be, the more you will Receive. when you focus on the highest good and you give love, gratitude, appreciation, attention and intention in abundance into the yOU-niverse, the more you will receive the abundance of the YOU-niverse!
The purpose of the Naked Heart is to teaches us that the power and healing is found in keeping our hearts open especially when we want to close it because this is where the healing and expansion takes place. you see, the heart is alchemical and it can transform anything into gold. it has the power to transform pain and fear into love and bliss.
if you have a heart that is always opened, you obtain these magical qualities:
1. LOVE- and an abundance of it! not just love for the world but love for the self. having compassion for ourselves and others. sending love into the darkness, offering our light to the shadows and every part we have hidden and deemed unworthy of love (for it is exactly those parts that need the shelter of the heart the most.) cultivating love in every situation. recognizing that all is one, all is love. love is the most powerful force in the universe. it is life-force itself. you are capable of the greatest power, for love offers the highest vibration. with the power of love you will find, healing, growth, abundance, life, joy, peace, freedom, inspiration, balance, etc. when your heart is open, you feel so much love that you are about to burst like you once did when you were a star many light years ago <3
2. iNNER PEACE- now that your heart is opened, you have a deep sense of trust. you trust in your journey and the process of life so you let go and surrender. you don't stress out or worry about anything like you used to. you see the simplicity of life and know that all is well. you relax in the belief that everything is always working out for you and this gives you a deep sense of inner peace. inner peace is letting go of the need to control and allowing what is to just be. it is finding stillness in chaos. it is to perceive miracles amidst disarray. it is to accept each moment as it comes, for each moment is an opportunity to choose peace and love. when you find that you are no longer resistant or attached to outer and inner conditions, you have found inner peace. in my personal experience i have found that situations that used to frustrate me don't anymore and i can maintain full inner peace around negative energy by going back to that trust and the belief of the power of the heart. this is some powerful stuff!
3. jOY- all of these heart attributes tie into one another but one of the signs of an opened heart is An unwavering sense of Joy. The heart truly is the source of true joy and bliss. if you are seeking happiness, know that you are happiness. happiness comes from within and it is found in the heart. when the material things don't make you happy anymore, all you are left with is yourself. this is because the source of true joy, freedom, peace, happiness and bliss doesn't come from external sources, rather it's an internal spiritual wellspring that stems from deep within the temple of the heart! it all starts with YOU!
4. ONENESS- unlike the dual brain, The heart is pure and true. the duality of the brain perceives illusions such as Separation, good and bad, black and white. the heart perceives the true nature of life and its oneness or as i like to call it, perceiving through the eyes of God. when you are heart conscious all you recognize is oneness, you begin to understand the connection between you and the YOU-niverse! through oneness you are able to connect with the world on a deeper level. with oneness we are able to see that all of life is family.
5. cOURAGE- with an open heart you can Conquer anything! and i mean anything! the heart is so powerful and trustworthy, anything you fear you can be sure to trust in your heart. that thing that keeps you alive, know that its unwavering loyalty will transform any and all fears into your power! courage can be found in the opened heart! and remember the heart is alchemical it transforms fear into love and pain into power! whenever i feel scared i can always trust to find courage in my heart, all i have to do is believe in its power and ask it to lead the way! and it will! fear then transforms into pleasure. this makes it easier to always return to my trusting heart whenever i am in a state of fear. i trust that my heart can transform any form of fear into love!
6. FORGIVENESS- with an open heart we are able to forgive the past. we know that by forgiving the past we make more room for love to be itself in the present. with the power of forgiveness we can replace suffering with peace and joy. forgiveness is for giving. there is no need for an apology to forgive because there is already freedom found in foRgivEnEss. forgiveness allows you to let go of the past so that you may live peacefully in the present. with an open heart forgiveness comes easy, for you know the peace, joy and freedom that comes with it.
7. PRAYER- you have found yourself praying for the highest good of all. you find that your entire life is one big prayer. you connect with and communicate with your angels. a prayer can be as simple as sending love. in fact, when you pray, you are sending your love and connecting with that higher power. i connect with God through the angels. they always reassure me and send me signs when i ask. they come to me in the form of humans, numbers, sacred geometry, colors, light, feathers, words, feelings, thoughts, visions, dreams, spirit animals, Music, memories, they even speak to me through my own children! its quite the experience. prayer is a tool of the heart that allows you to have a deeper relationship with yourself and your higher power that lives through you and the oneness of the YOU-niverse! with the power of prayer you can heal the world!
8. GRATITUDE- an open heart is a grateful heart. with your open heart, you express gratitude for all. you acknowledge the gift of life and give thanks to your higher power for every experience that has lead you to this point and you are grateful for every moment after. you are eager and excited for more of life's blessings because you recognize the miracle of life. expressing gratitude in abundance is a sure way to become aligned with The abundance that you already are. its all a matter of fine tuning your frequency to the highest frequency there is: Love.
9. GIVING & RECIEVING- you find so much pleasure in giving. you have found that there are many forms of giving. giving doesn't have to come in the form of material things. you can still give your time, attention, love and compassion and the best part is that you can give these things in abundance! you don't give to receive because you already know that giving and receiving are one. by giving you feel the blessings pouring into your heart and there is no better feeling than receiving the pure bliss of love in our hearts. and when we receive, we give others the opportunity to receive their blessings. do you recognize the oneness of it?
10. AWARENESS- now that you have unlocked the gates of the heart, there is a sense of acute awareness. with heart consciousness you are being guided by intuition which is your higher self. (and the intuition of the heart is never wrong) there is a sense of awareness of the self and of the world around you. you are better able to understand your emotions, behaviors, thoughts and actions and those of others. you are so conscious and aware that your awareness is set to awareness itself. when we are conscious of consciousness itself, we would have stepped into a world of infinity.(its like taking two mirrors and facing them towards one another, what do you get? infinite realms!) we are able to find that consciousness is what we truly are. with this new sense of awareness we are able to look at things objectively and without judgement and there is a deep sense of knowing. with this new found awakening there is no turning back now!
11. CLARITY- with an open heart, we are able to clear the path by letting go of the emotional baggage we have been carrying around for so long. the clutter of the mind becomes no more and the heart takes over, allowing the mind to follow. you see, the mind can be a loud place taking you down the rabbit hole. the heart is quiet and though it beats, it brings us to a place of stillness, hence bringing clarity into the mind, body and soul. the heart knows things before it happens, so setting your attention and intention on the heart space will allow you to receive information, and with that you are able to make a clear and conscious decision. it is always wise to shift your awareness from your brain and into your heart for it clears the path, allowing us to see and understand clearer, and from there we can make better, conscious decisions. the heart helps us to become focused. where there is clarity there is receptivity. and through receptivity we are able to attract great opportunities!
12. TRUTH- the heart is pure. if your heart is open, you come from a pure place. if your heart is open, you know, live and speak your truth. you are authentic and raw. you are open to the vulnerability of living your truth and know that this is the only way to live a happy and authentic life. with an open heart there is no hiding in the dark, for all of your truths will be exposed and that is more than okay, that is called being real, being human. by living your truth, there is an energetic field of protection around you. by living your truth, no one can touch you. authenticity is found in this space. living in truth is living in light and a sure sign that you are living and speaking through a higher power and proof that your heart is open!
13. SYNCHRONICITY, mIRACLES & INSTANT MANIFESTATIONS- because we are energy and everything in the You-niverse is energy, this makes us magnetic, attracting to us the same vibrations we put out. when we open our very powerful hearts we are actually projecting an electro-magnetic energy field that is communicating, responding and aligning with the you-niverse, for everything in the you-niverse is connected and the you-niverse is always responding to your energy. when we project our heart energy, we are using the greatest and most powerful force of energy that we harness which allows us to experience the magic, miracles, and the alignment. when using the energy of the heart we are actually using life-force energy- the same stuff that creates worlds and new life; and because it is so powerful the results are also powerful and instantaneous. through my heart conscious experiences i can't tell you how often i witness instant manifestations and synchronicities on a daily basis that match up to my greatest purpose. the opportunities begin to flow endlessly and all i experience is pure magic. an open heart is a receptive heart, for we are allowing all that our heart desires to flow to us at a faster rate vs. a closed heart which blocks and builds resistance. in a blocked state we reject receiving the blessings that life has to offer us whether we realize it or not. to become aligned with and to manifest the life you dream, you must live through the consciousness of the heart.
14. CREATIVITY- when your heart is opened you are inspired. to be inspired is to be in spirit. to be in spirit means that you are open and receptive to the natural cosmic flow of life. it is to welcome your higher power and to invite it to fill you with the creativity of life. the heart is the source of creation for it is the very first organ that manifests in the body when you were in your mothers womb. you can create anything you wish with the power and energy of the heart. the only limit is the limit you place on yourself. all is possible!
15. INTUITION- this is one of those attributes that automatically comes with opening your heart. i used to not be able to tell what my intuition was. i didn't know how to trust in my own inner guidance. once you have shifted your awareness from your brain and into your heart, things start to get quiet and you are able to hear the whispering wisdom. you can now differentiate between the voice of the ego (voice of fear) and the voice of your higher self, also known as intuition or inner guidance system, which is the voice of love. intuition is subtle, it comes in the form of feelings, thoughts, visions, etc. and is accompanied by a deep inner sense of knowing. the voice of the ego is fear based thought and triggered emotions that have an energy of the past. the more you open your heart the louder your intuition becomes.
16. HEALING- there is much healing here in the open heart. with our open heart we are able to let go, surrender and accept life as it is without our desire to resist and control. an open heart is a healing heart and this is the truth. the naked heart is a teacher, offering us the wisdom and importance of opening our hearts for the sake of healing. heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women and it all comes from blocking the heart. when we close our hearts we are energetically storing that negative energy into our hearts which over the years manifests into disease. the power of the heart can heal, for it harnesses the greatest energy. when we open our heart we allow the natural flow of energy to purify the stored pain of the past. blocking that energy can lead to the gradual destruction of your body. open that heart, feel the natural flow of life heal you from the inside out! you are your own greatest healer!
17. ACCEPTANCE- to practice unconditional love is to practice unconditional acceptance too. Either you accept life or you resist it. It can't be both if you want to be truly happy. That's being conditional. You can't just receive life sometimes and deny life sometimes. Life is going to happen with or without you. Whether you resist it or not. And When life does happen, Be there. Accept it. And in acceptance you will be granted the wisdom and the Inspiration to take the right action. Acceptance does not mean enduring abuse. In acceptance we find the answers we seek. please do not mistaken this message to be "blindly passive" there is no passivity in this conscious state. There is always that voice of intuition guiding you along the way. to accept is to receive. the more we can accept life, the more open and receptive we become. the more we can accept life, the more we leave out expectation and disappointment. the more we accept life the more we receive life. The more we unconditionally accept life as it unfolds, the good and the bad, the more we start to notice that the "bad" is only blessings in disguise and that life is all one big blessing. the more we accept life the more we begin to perceive through the heart, and when we look through the eyes of the heart, all is a miracle.
18. BALANCE- i like to think of the body as a scale, the heart being the center. we have lived solely in our mind, creating an imbalance of the body, mind and soul. if you want to become centered, you must return to the center: the heart, then all else will naturally balance itself out. when it comes to finding balance in your life, the heart is the source. you don't need to try to balance anything out or try to make anything happen when you are in your heart space, for the heart is what will restore you to your natural balance; it is part of the open heart process.
19. LIVING IN THE MOMENT- you enjoy embracing the slow process and witnessing the moments unfold. you recognize that the miracles are found in the present moment. in fact you recognize that you yourself are a miracle slowly unfolding and living within the unfolding miracle of life! you are a miracle within a miracle slowly yet infinitly becoming and evolving! living in the moment is living in meditation, for you are completely aware and conscious. it is to breathe the slow unwinding of a miracle! when we are fully present in the now, we are able to witness life in a new light. when we show up for the present moment and acknowledge our heart, body and soul within the you-niverse, we are able to witness the slow dance of nature. this connection brings us closer to the heart and eventually closer to our higher power. instead of living a fast life, you slow down and tune into the rhythm of the heart of the world. living in the moment, you understand that everything in nature, including yourself, blooms slowly, like a flower, for example. you recognize your oneness with the flower, in fact you find that you are the flower, flowing to life's song; you are a flow-er- you flow with the pulse of the you-niverse.
20. QUIET MIND- suddenly you cant remember the last time you heard your mind bickering. your awareness is on point and you know that your mind follows your heart. you are so conscious and educated about the heart that you Deliberately choose it over and over again and again. you trust in its quiet whispers and know that the secrets to the you-niverse are found here, so you tap into that inner peace and connect with your heart. you find stillness and breathe deep. this is you creating magic. this is you living your power.
21. cONNECTION- there is no deeper connection than that of the heart. nothing is more true then the truth of the heart. connecting with this power has you coming back for more. you recognize the greatness in it and feel a deep bond between you, your heart and the you-niverse!
22. TRANSFORMATION- huge transformations occur at such a fast rate. with your awareness you have noticed that it almost seems like it has happened over night. you are conscious of the process and because you live in the moment you can see the gradual change within and without. you reflect on the past and find how much you have grown. you know and understand your purpose in life and you spread the love in hopes to inspire transformation in others! because the heart is so powerful, its energy creates instant and major transformational shifts. this is why the heart is alchemical! it changes everything into something beautiful!
all of these heart qualities are one in the same. the heart is an extremely valuable tool and living with an opened heart is truly something one must experience to believe! if you are experiencing at least one of these, know that you are on the heart journey! blessings and may you always stay on the path of healing, naked hearts!
