"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."
Our hearts have the power to give and receive love for ourselves, others and the Universe. Our hearts have the power to transform any situation into peace, harmony, and joy through the giving and receiving of love.
Our heart loves to dance and be open, and through this openness...a heart wide open...we are present to give and receive love. We can open our hearts by simply undulating our spine and moving our ribcage. Or by allowing our sounds to vibrate and open our heart. Take a nice deep breath and then on the exhale sound YUMMM!!! Sense the vibration in your heart!! This vibration is the voice of your heart! "YUM" is actually a Sanskrit mantra that opens your heart chakra – activating peace, harmony and love.
One of the ways we can sense the giving and receiving of love is through our hands. Through touch our hands give and receive love and compassion through the simple act of a hug or a soft brush on a shoulder or cheek. Take your hands and place them on your heart center and breathe...close your eyes and smell the moment. Receive and give love simultaneously, unconditionally. Now open your eyes and sense the world around you...did it transform? Our hands are an extension of our heart.
It's heart week - love week. "What if" everything you did, every decision you made was based on love? Would the world be a better place? Would you be happier? YES!!!
A couple of fun facts about your heart:
1. Your heart beats 100,000 a day!
2. Each minute your heart pumps 1.5 gallons of blood.
3. The normal heart valve is the size of a 1/2 dollar.
4. The blue whale has the largest heart of mammals, weighing over 1500 lbs!
5. Your left ring finger has a direct vessel to your heart.
