Does your heart feel Heavy?

What if, for the next 4 weeks, we all took responsibility for this heavy

load and took some radical action to take responsibility for what is

making our hearts feel so heavy?

Remember, we must give up the person we are today, in order to become

the person we wish to be tomorrow!

Let's take the area of relationships as an example.

If this area is not working out as you had planned - and it is making

your heart heavy - What radical action could YOU take to make your heart

lighter? Where could YOU take responsibility for this shifting this

load? Do you need to get out of a relationship which is not making you

happy? Do you need to put some firmer boundaries in place? Do you need

to tell someone exactly how you feel? If you are feeling stuck in this

area - what action could you take to shift things and start to move you


When we chose to take responsibility for our heavy hearts - we are

reclaiming our power and taking responsibility for our own lives.

However, if we continue to resent or blame other people for our current

situation, we are giving other people the power to run our lives and

actually, we are being irresponsible!

The longer we sit with our heavier hearts, the more stuck we will become

and the more likely we are to feel hopeless or resentful. So, if you

really want to move forward and move ahead in a certain area of your

life, make a decision to move forward and take some action - Get

yourself unstuck!! Take the bull by the horns and feel the fear and do

it anyway!

This will also work if you are feeling hurt, angry or blameful of

someone who may have hurt you. Often these emotions cause our hearts to

feel heavy. Make a decision today to become responsible for your own

happiness and not to be tied to hurt and pain from the past. Let it go

- for your own sake. Just because you choose to forgive someone, does

not mean you have to agree with their actions. Just make a decision to

not allow the actions of another person to keep you stuck or make your

heart heavy. Take the lesson with you and release yourself from the


Is your heart heavy because it is not doing what it desires? Then again,

take action to fulfill this desire and move towards something which

makes your heart sing! This does not have to mean changing your life in

a huge way; just take some baby steps to make your heart lighter. If

you are unclear what you desire, take a moment to fall quiet and just

ask your inner wisdom what it desires and also what actions steps you

can take to make your heart lighter. Then listen with your heart and see

what comes up!
