Often, we all have one or two areas in our life where our heart just feels heavy. This could be any area which is important to you. Your heart could feel heavy with regards to relationships, finances, career or perhaps family issues.
What if, for the next 4 weeks, we all took responsibility for this heavy heart and took total responsibility for what is making your heart feel so heavy?
Let’s take the area of relationships as an example
If this area is not working out as you had planned – and it is making your heart heavy – What radical action could YOU take to make your heart lighter? Where could YOU take responsibility for this shifting this load?
Do you need to get out of a relationship which is not making you happy? Do you need to put some firmer boundaries in place? Do you need to be assertive and tell someone exactly how you feel? If you are feeling stuck in this area – what could you do to shift things and start to move you forward?
When we give other people the power to run our lives
When we chose to take responsibility for our heavy hearts – we are reclaiming our power and taking responsibility for our own lives. However, if we continue to resent or blame other people for our current situation, we are giving other people the power to run our lives and actually, we are being irresponsible!
The longer we sit with our heavier hearts, the more stuck we will become and the more likely we are to feel hopeless or resentful. So, if you really want to move forward and move ahead in a certain area of your life, make a decision to move forward and change your attitude – Get yourself unstuck!!
Let it go
This will also work if you are feeling hurt, angry or blameful of someone who may have hurt you. Often these emotions cause our hearts to feel heavy. Make a decision today to become responsible for your own happiness, care more about how your feel and refuse to be tied to the hurt and pain from your past.
Let it go – for your own sake. Just because you choose to forgive someone, does not mean you have to agree with their actions. Just make a decision to not allow the actions of another person to keep you stuck or make your heart heavy.
Take the lesson with you and release yourself from the pain
Is your heart heavy because it is not doing what it desires? Are you hiding behind a mask and have lost your true authentic self? This will never feel good to you and will have you feeling upstream.
This does not have to mean changing your life in a huge way; just take some baby steps to make your heart lighter. If you are unclear what you desire, take a moment to fall quiet and just ask your inner wisdom what it desires and also what you need to do or feel to make your heart lighter. Then listen with your heart and see what comes up!
