**Tending to the fire inside of you. ** 🔥
In your heart there is a flame. The more it radiates, the more you radiate. How you tend to your heart determines the veracity of the flame.
The first step in heart tending: love yourself. Love your fire. Accept its power, its veracity, because when you do, that's when it has room to grow and breathe.
Step two in heart tending: listen to its desires. Not wants. DESIRES. You can want a house, a beautiful dress, or a car. But it's rare that those things make you come alive, it's rare that those things speak to your SOUL. Desires are your souls whispers to you, the bread crumbs that lead you to your greater Truth and allow you to live in alignment with your Highest Self.
Step three of heart tending: take action on your desires. If you don't feed the fire, it starts to dwindle away.
Taking action often involves going back to step one and step two, because life and learning how to truly tend the heart is not a linear process, but an ebb and flow. That's how we learn how to listen. And how we learn to take action. Because at some point we didn't hear it right. Or fear crept in. And we learned from the process, we learned from failure and the pain of it all.
How are you tending to your heart flame this week?
This weekend, I've been adventuring in the mountains, sitting by a fire under a star lit sky, enjoying hot coffee on cool mornings, listening to the birds singing outside of my window, and breathing in the Shakti energy all around me. Bliss.
