heart opener

A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.
—  Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

a lil heart sharing :: as much as i love this beautiful & heart opening & free travelling nomad life and backpacking around, i am truly feeling the call to settle down & grow roots & have a simple home nest somewhere. a vision of a yurt in the forest is making my heart sing, just the vision of it. having a place to lay my head every night, a safe cosy space to grow in & share. surrounded by sweet brothers and sisters. sitting around the fire. learning with pachamama & one another & ourselves. with a lil garden, growing my own food and herbal medicine, learning, reading, writing, creating music, sinking into the earth, swimming in the waters, basking in the sun, receiving sweet friends there, manifesting visions. i will always keep on travelling but to have a base home is so primal to my spirit. this feels so very clear now. and to be in the midst of a tribe of magical inspiring beings and that we may keep on lifting each other higher & higher. just felt like sharing my heart whispers with all of you and may we always follow our highest bliss, no matter what! maybe you feel resonance & i would love to hear your words and feelings! i am always happy to hear of new places & beings or anything you feel to share. may we connect, sweet family & grow more and more altogether! we can do anything we dream. infinite love waves to all beings in all the worlds 💧

“Through spiritual maturity you will see new ways to avoid unnecessary suffering; wiser ways to endure unavoidable hardships with grace, and opportunities to turn your pain into lessons of service and healing for others. Your hard journey has had a great purpose! Your pain was always a part of a plan to open your heart to love. Have faith. A miracle is happening in your life; the miracle of pain is transforming you to your highest self.” — Bryant McGill

Open-hearted confession from a 'former' Indonesian
I did learn two languages and two cultures at the same time, and I was practically raised in both territories. My parents never made me choose my nationality. They only made sure I didn’t grow up forgetting either culture or denying that both cultures made me who I am.However, both Spain and Indonesia pushed me to choose.

Granted, her circumstances are a little bit different from mine, but her situation is also exactly my situation. My American citizenship is something that I have by birth. My (now defunct) Indonesian citizenship is something that I have by blood. My childhood was spent in Indonesia, every single member of my family currently lives in Indonesia, and I feel the most rooted in Indonesia, but I can’t just drop my American citizenship while I’m studying in the US and planning to work in the US. It occurred to me over and over again that maybe I’m being selfish, but this article shows that I’m not the only one.

Was dylan an animal lover?

I think Dyl loved and respected animals. Just..I don’t feel like he was a passionate, emotionally attached animal lover.  If that makes sense?  Don’t get me wrong; I don’t think he was apathetic about animals or an animal hater. Just middle ground with them.  He respected them and gave them space but just not an animal gusher. That’s probably why cats worked well for Dyl. When he was a kid, he probably didn’t pick up kitten Rocky and squash him with kisses or squeeze him with hugs.  He’d be respectful and kind and gentle. The animal enthusiasm was more a Rebby thing. wearing his heart on his sleeve specifically with animals - was an instant ‘in’ to opening his heart chakra.  Dylan could sometimes forget to feed his cats whereas Rebby would suffer personally if his dog hadn’t been fed in hours. 

you hang up the phone

                    & feel badly for upsetting things

& crawl back into bed to dream of a time

                         when your heart was open wide 

& you loved things just because

Empathy Attachments

Hi I message you a while ago about my connection. I’m realizing that I’m have spiritual discernment & I’m also an empath. Which does not make anything easier.
I can feel their anxiety. It’s usually really heavy like energetically it weights my body down. Most of their anxiety a felt in the chest area because that’s where I primarily feel it. I started doing deep breathing exercises to help with.
I’m starting to question this connection,there are moments when I can feel their presence as if there in the room with me. Uh it’s a little daunting at times but I’m starting to gain more control over it.
My heart chakra started to open after the connection and now I’ve intuitively can feel their deepest feeling and wants. It can be frustrating when their actions aren’t aligning with their thoughts but I realize that I more than likely can pick up on their emotions before they can. Is any of this normal for someone that is clairvoyant or has clear feelings or is even an empath. Why is this connection necessary. Is it preparing me(spiritually,mentally,emotionally) to actually meet/connect in person.
Thank you.

Always see the connection between you{Receiver} and the transmitter. If you could imagine your consciousness like a radio. Radios pick up signals all the time but sometimes there is static. To get a clear reading we pinpoint what frequency channel the receiver picks up. such as 107.1 but if we’re not directly on the right frequency there is static. 

As an empath, it’s good to detach and use discernment when it comes to picking up other frequencies. Sometimes it may not be you at all and it’s necessary to detach from what you are feeling. Like I notice if I think about my neighbor, i’ll suddenly get grumpy even if it’s entirely random like I was happy minutes ago. It’s weird but it’s subtle patterns like that. We begin noticing.

When we’re thinking of a wave, we begin receiving it. the more we focus on the wave the stronger it comes into focus into our reality. So in this case i would question what the connection is building for and what is the theme coming to surface? 

If it’s issues of love, relationships or whatever topic that is coming to surface it could deal with a heart issue, a solar issue, a throat issue, etc. See how it connects back to YOU.

Easier said than done. Break the connection, detach from the frequency entirely. Then really look at the bigger picture here.

 Let yourself empty out and feel the difference between attaching to the frequency and detaching to it in your mind.

There will be a difference if you watch it :)

Hope this helps you with your Empathy problem! 

How to survive a break up
  • forgive - no matter if it was your fault or not, forgive yourself and your partner. 
  • embrace the future - better things are about to come.
  • you should talk about it - tell a friend how you feel. Don’t close yourself in home thinking about the break up. Talking helps, i promise.
  • make boys night/ girls night; watch a good movie and eat high in calories food (strange, but again - i am sure it would help!). Chips, chocolate, ice cream, and even a little bit of alcohol will do you well.
  • might be a cliche, but time heals. it really does. And after a while, you should open your heart so you can love again.
We call the path of the heart the sunlit path. On this path progress is faster than the fastest, because inside the heart is the soul. The soul is all light. It is the divine messenger, the divine representative of God. If you really knock at the heart’s door, everything is achieved, because when the heart’s door is opened you will find the soul within.

It starts off as a warning, allowing you to prepare for what it has set out for you. Then it passes through your mouth, down your throat and into your chest, where it wraps its pretty little fingers around your heart. You pry open your ribs, begging it to escape. but its made its home inside of you. It pulls on your heart, pulls until its muscles can’t transfer any more blood to the rest of your body, leaving you weak and vulnerable. And when it decides its done, it works its way back up your throat, and even though you’re screaming, it knows no one can hear you.
It strips your ability to feel human, and with each gut wrenching second, you are powerless. It doesn’t allow you to die, because the pain stops after that. Instead, it rests on your tongue. You can’t even open your mouth, because you know it threatens to sink its teeth in you one more time.

Platitude Anon here. Thank you for your thoughtful reply. You live the other side of my coin: for you the negativity was embossed by forceful application, for me by way of vacuum - all the positive influences removed when my father died when I was 5. My mother was an emotional Frigidaire and amplified, actually refined, the effects of abandonment. Until I was about 43, my 'core' was unbounded anxiety. It's changed completely now, but vulnerability... Man, that's a high calling. Again, TY 🌹

You are most welcome! 😘

“When you love someone, truly love them, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt-you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it’s crippling-like having your heart carved out.”
-Sherrilyn Kenyon

A high calling indeed.
