I recently read some interesting articles about how we are hardwired to shield our hearts. Keeping our “distance” is like our super power from experienced pain and perceived future pain (future thinking). It is through acknowledged pain and putting some attention on our feelings for healing that we’re able to stay open, most importantly for ourselves and others. So how do you drop your armor around your heart? Especially when your current life experience are inducing fear, sadness or loss (aka infertility or a relationship crisis like divorce) When those feelings of self protection are strong for me and I feel like recoiling into myself I stop and say “You are safe” . Your body, mind, emotional and spiritual bodies are interpreting energetic hits and with this new understanding of being hardwire for shielding oneself, reacting automatically by Armor up! Shields Up! It's an automatic response to protect and being conscious of this response means you can change it.
