To all lovers : let love flow freely from your heart.
Sometimes we repress the love that we have for someone in our hearts, because we’re scared of what the other may feel or think if we speak our truth.
We decide in those cases to choose silence because it feels safer and less risky, and we think : the love in the form that we now have won’t be taken away from me if I don’t speak more of my true feelings — while if I do my love may run away, because this could be too much for them and therefore scare them.
Yes but NO.let love flow,
WE CAN’T HEAL AND PROGRESS IF WE DON’T LET LOVE FLOW.
LET ME TELL YOU WHY THIS WAY OF LOVING IS THE OLD WAY.
When we repress the love that we have in our hearts for someone, then automatically the other does the same. It’s energy. If you close your heart, your lover will do the same because relationships work as mirrors — while if you open up to love, most likely your lover will open up to love too, ultimately.
Maybe not tonight or tomorrow, but ultimately, when they feel ready.
Also in order to heal we need to think, act and BEHAVE IN LOVE FOR OUR OWN HIGHEST GOOD, FIRST.
If we repress our feelings to keep a lover, then what happens in our own hearts? If feels blocked, compressed, sad, heavy — it lacks air, it lacks the life that it deserves.
What happens if we decide to quiet and close a heart that’s naturally opened? It slowly but certainly, in time, loses its beauty, its spontaneity, its warrior’s way.
You know it’s very simple. When we decide to avoid life, to avoid love and to keep our hearts closed off in front of true love — YES WE MAKE SURE THAT WE WON’T GET HURT, BUT AT THE SAME TIME WE MAKE SURE THAT WE WON’T RECEIVE LOVE AS WELL.
An open heart gives love freely, that’s why he can receive love. It’s an illusion to think that we can receive love, unconditional love — if we refuse to give it to the people that we love.
RELATIONSHIPS WORK AS MIRRORS.
If we decide to close our hearts, to stop giving love to the people that we love in case we wouldn’t get what we expect, in case they would act badly or in case we would look stupid — yes we build safety ego walls around us making sure that we won’t get hurt, but at the same time I can’t tell you that we can’t receive love either, because love won’t be able to pass such a closed heart.
If we choose to close our hearts because of fear, yes we do keep control of everything and nobody will hurt us but at the same time…. we PUSH LOVE AWAY from our hearts too.
To receive the love that we want, we need TO BE WILLING TO RISK OUR HEARTS FOR LOVE.
Until we see love as a game, or a strategy, a sort of “I’ll say this tomorrow but not before because it’s too much” or “I won’t tell him this or that because he will run away” — until we chose to see love as a game of love, as a planned and safe game of love then we can’t heal.
Because to heal we need to dive in the pool of life. We need to take the armour, the shield, this heavy protection that we built around our chest off and dive in the pool of feelings.
IN ORDER TO HEAL WE NEED TO LET OUR EMOTIONS FLOW, we need to speak our heart’s truth — or we simply maintain walls and energetic blocks around the heart.
A heart can only heal if it allows love to be felt and to flow. WHAT MATTERS IS THE PEACE AND JOY THAT YOU’LL FIND IN YOUR HEART WHEN YOU’LL LET LOVE FLOW AND BE GIVEN FROM IT FREELY.
You know, honestly, what do we truly risk in love? Nothing. We can let love flow. Worse case scenario, what? Love isn’t reciprocical and so what? Nothing.
This is a big thing only if we rely on outside people’s feelings about us to validate ourselves and make us feel worthy.
Until we see love as a planned strategy the heart will remain sick in part — because emotions won’t be allowed to flow freely. Because, THE HEART CHAKRA’S HIGHEST VERSION IS WHEN IT LETS LOVE FLOW, LOVE COME AND GO, IN A FREE WAY
What happens to a flower that wants to bloom, if we take water and sun away from it? What happens to a flower that wants to blossom if you tell it that it’s too risky to bloom, with such colours, and that beautifully? It dies. A flower that wants to bloom is meant to.
Spring can’t be repressed, love can’t be silenced — or the heart’s flower becomes dry, heavy, frozen, pale.
You think, but what if I give love and open my heart and they don’t answer, or they don’t give the same amount of love as I do? what if I’m there for them, and they aren’t there for me?
In other words, you think : what if I was FOOLED IN LOVE? So you’re scared of being fooled, and so you withdraw from love.
For example you think, ladies, as I used to : if I keep my heart closed and don’t speak out my feelings, if I feel mysterious and intriguing, if I pretend that I don’t care and that he means nothing to me — than he’ll be intrigued, this will arouse his conqueror’s mind and he will chase me and fight to win his mysterious Queen, and so on and so forth.
This is the old paradigm of love as a STRATEGY.
Instead, let love flow from your heart.
Strategies doesn’t work out in love. Oh “I should tell him this because this is what he wants to hear from me, this is what will keep us safe!”. Yes but no, because … if you do that it’s not true love, he will love a limited version of you, a pretended woman or man, a fake-You and this would be a lie.
You would pretend that you are something that you aren’t, to keep someone. Is that love?
Love isn’t a strategy. Love flows. Love grows, love comes and goes, as flowers blossom, grow and pass away.
Let love flow, allow your heart to heal, and NEVER BELIEVE THAT LOVE IS LOST IF LOVE IS SPOKEN.
Many blessings !
