An amazing thing has happened this past month. The world I know has been filled with an ever increasing amount of love. My last article drew responses referring to it as a ‘love letter’, a ‘love article’, and a ‘love fest’. In the article I simply thanked everyone who helped make the Wellness Expo a success, as well as thanking all those who have helped me along my holistic healing path. In the weeks that followed Kim and I have had an influx of emails and Facebook messages thanking us for what we do and telling us we are loved. We have met many new amazing people whose hearts are also filled with love; love for life, for themselves, for us. It is all too easy in this day and age, when bad news is the focus of the media giants, to forget the simple fact that the vast majority of people in the world are good.
Why has my world suddenly so blossomed with love? I have thought about that over the last few days and reached a simple conclusion: I have had a change of heart. Now when people tell me that I have changed and that my thinking is “out there”, I place my right hand over my heart and reply, “No, I am no out there; I am in here, and it feels great!”. I am both a Chios Energy Healing and Reiki practitioner. Reiki is much better known, and I am often asked which is better. They are both good and both resonate differently with different people but, for me, Chios resonates with my heart and in my heart. When I am healing I call in energy from Mother Earth, the Divine, and from all around me. The energy proceeds flows into my heart chakra and then into to the patient. Any healer will tell you this does not have to be the case. Healers are merely conduits for the energy and it does not have to enter us to be effective as we can direct it outside of ourselves. For me, however, the energy does flow into my heart. I was reluctant at first to admit this for reasons I do not comprehend, but since admitting this to others and myself I have noticed a shift in my world. It is now filled with more love.
We have all heard the phrase ‘change your attitude change your life.’ I suggest you expand on this. Don’t just change your attitude; change your perspective. Funnel everything into your heart before you react to anything. Don’t just see with your eyes; see with your heart. Do not judge first then ask questions later; forgive first and listen with your ears and your heart to the responses you receive. The idea of leading with your heart may seem frightening at first but what you will receive in return will soon quell your fears. What I have discovered, as others have before me, is that the vast majority of people are doing the best they can. If they could do better they would. Extenuating circumstances may be preventing them from doing better. Appreciate that fact before you get angry with a loved one, a co-worker or a stranger. Let your first response to daily life come from your heart and be ready for the hearts of others to respond in kind. Then watch your life transform in ways you could not imagine with a simple change of heart.
