No matter what particular issue you’re working on during your healing journey, the most important place to focus is your heart. Your heart carries all of the issues, all of the concerns, and all of the beliefs that are self-limiting, dysfunctional or painful. These are all stored in the heart.
Thus, the place to begin receiving is into the heart. As the heart clears, as the wounds release, and as the beliefs dissolve, love flows into the heart, and then this love circulates throughout the entire body on every level, physical, emotional and spiritual.
So it is essential to develop and increase your ability to receive love. Even if you had experiences in the past that made you afraid to receive love, this is based on a false belief that love is hurtful or dangerous. What you got may have hurt you, but real love doesn’t hurt; it heals.
It is important to realize that this belief does not serve you. And real love is available to you around the clock. Set your intention to deepen your receiving, especially to receive into those deeper realms that are thirsty for the love. The places that are thirsty are the ones which have been wounded, shut down and protected.
In the healing work, often the fiercest dragon guards the most tender and vulnerable places in our heart. As we drop deeper into our hearts, this often surfaces as anger or fear. These emotions can get rather strong, since these are the emotions that were packed into the heart years ago when you were facing situations where you decided to close up, protect and defend. When you focus on receiving, you realize that the key is to bring love to the places that are thirsty, the places where you have held off the love out of fear or defense. This is a tremendous opportunity to bring healing in a gentle way.
