The Heart Chakra
Center of chest
To love is to be vulnerable
To love is to take risk
To love is to give
Love is to be selfless
Love is to be self-full
To love is to be love
Spilled out blood drips from a broken heart.....
Pumps truth lost truths of things left in vein
Scarlet streams of lies held in, so stained
A heart once beating love shall not beat the same.
Faster patterns of fear sped up heart beat
held hostage by the past knows when to fleet
change of rhythm from red-black-blue.
Bruised by the neglect of constricting binds
a thrust of awakening.
Defibrillation, metal paddles of shock of what looks like lost time, a heart mended owns not what was never mine.
Oh the irony of a victim-less crime
My heart has been broken
Cracked open ripped to pieces
Thrown in the dirt
Love has been sucked out of me by a vampire Id like to call low self-worth
I've given away my most vital organ to people who have not known it's value
For so long I've thought that something was wrong with me
I've asked myself many times....
Am I enough?
Am I worthy?
Those questions alone say that I didn't believe myself to be deserving of love
So of course what showed up was a love that was
far from LOVE.......
Green Kryptonite bleeds out of a torn open heart
I have been hurt in love, weak in love, abused in love, used in LOVE
Green Labradorite placed upon my heart
I have been healed in love, inspired in love, creative in love, uplifted in
I'm grateful to have been in love
There are no losses only lessons
My capacity to love beyond bounds is a blessing
I finally love myself
Love has found me because I have found it!
Ogun warrior of light, Cut away my attachment to results.
Rid me of my need to be validated and affirmed.
Give me the strength to affirm myself.
Build up my strength in the same way you mold your iron. Give me the tools I need to release old heartache.
Take your knife and cut old ties that I have to relationships and things that do not serve me or my growth.
Ogun rewire my mind and clear my pathways to enlightenment. May I always remember that the key to love is to be connected to the source that lives within me and around me.
I need Nothing outside of myself all I need lies within.
I LOVE myself! I LOVE my family & friends. I LOVE how I'm able to problem solve. I LOVE my ability to heal. I LOVE that I'm creative. I LOVE how free I am. I LOVE how easily I connect with people. I LOVE my mind and I'm grateful to be a visionary. I LOVE my ability to inspire and uplift people through my voice. I LOVE my connection with the divine. I LOVE my gift of divination. I LOVE my art. I LOVE life and all that I experience. I LOVE That I was given the gift of Love.
I AM LOVE, Love is all that I AM.
Opening up the Heart Chakra is about releasing your sadness and loss. In order to grow you have to allow yourself to move through the grieving process.
What in your life is causing you sadness?
Sit with your emotions and write a list of all of the situations and people you feel have broken your heart. Once you are complete read the list out-loud to yourself and after each one say "I LOVE YOU"
The realization that growth has been attained and that there's still more work to do. Nothing is ever complete everything is forever unfolding. The path to enlightenment is a journey there is no destination.
