Often it happens that life will invite us to grow and evolve into a higher state of consciousness by offering us a challenging emotional experience. In this challenge, we always have the choice to respond to it by either shutting down and closing off our heart to it, or opening up our heart and being willing to experience something more expansive and new. Sometimes we get into these habits in life where we close off our heart as a way of trying to protect and defend ourselves in order to survive.
This can cause us to live everyday with a heart that is either halfway open to experiencing life, or completely closed. This experience of having a habitually closed heart is not something permanent, wrong, or something to be afraid of. It’s just another experience and challenge that your soul asked for to initiate massive growth and nudge you to dive inside to discover a deeper spiritual experience at your core.
“The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.”

One of the easiest ways to unlock your heart energy today is to consciously send loving energy to everyone you meet. As you go through your day imagine loving every human being you see or think about with your mind. Love is the key that opens the door to your heart and the path to your soul. It is amazing how this simple sweet exercise will transform your energy in a matter of minutes and raise your manifesting vibration. Whenever you meet someone, be it a stranger, an old friend, or your spouse, focus on directing loving energy towards them.
The easiest way to do this is to connect with their innermost soul by looking into their eyes, and recognize that Divine essence and sparkle inside of them. Meet with that radiance and send them a silent loving thought like, “I see the beauty inside of you, I notice your Divine Nature, or I love you.” The more you consciously direct this loving energy outwards, the more your own heart opens allowing you to f eel full of love and totally alive.
“The highest reward for an act of kindness is not what you get by doing it, but what you become by doing it.”
You’ll find that the more open your heart becomes, the more you become like a magnet that is constantly attracting the experiences, people, and things you desire into your life. By simply choosing to continuously open your heart all day today you are automatically going to attract more experiences that make your heart sing tomorrow! Inside your heart is the essential energy behind manifesting your desires into this physical reality.
The specific feeling and frequency of where your heart is at now, literally magnetizes or repels a specific experience or thing into existence in your future. Thus, more open and expansive your heart is, the more you magnetize powerful, loving and expansive experiences into your life.
See if you can stretch your heart and expand your love so that it touches not only those to whom you can give it easily, but also to those who need it more than you.
It’s important to realize that if you are always sending love to others, that you also stop to let it in for yourself. Loving yourself is another powerful way of unlocking your heart and allowing this great richness into your life. A daily practice of self-love will keep your heart opening to life rather than closing, and will allow you to feel more loving support from every soul in this world. You can instantly send love towards yourself by consciously choosing to relax into your heart and accept yourself exactly as you are. Simply open your eyes to seeing that you are perfectly O.K. exactly as you are right now.
Notice how your heart tends to open, soften and relax instantly. Another effective way to boost your self-love is to look into a mirror at your own beautiful eyes, and speak gentle, loving affirmations to yourself. Say things like, “I love you, you are so beautiful, or I love everything about you.” If your heart is closed it may take a few minutes before it sinks in, yet you will be amazed at how you feel after you spend as little as 3 minutes sending yourself this powerful love energy. You will feel loved, expansive, and unstoppable which will translate into easily manifesting experiences that resonate with these powerful feeling states.
When the heart is innocent and the walls have disappeared, you are bridged with infinity.
