As Heart and Valentine month come to a close and March signals the promise of spring, keep your heart centered practices strong! This is the fourth is a series of Heart Health blogs we have celebrated this February. The four chambers of the heart have metaphorically been shared as mind, body, emotion and spirit. Today we look at the spiritual component of heart health. Healing means to become whole and for this reason, anyone can heal even if they are on their death bed. It is not about avoiding death, it is the feeling of connecting to hOMe. Dr. Paul Pearsall, in his book, The Heart’s Code, shares, ” we heal in order to be whole with the systems around us and to be able to care for, heal, and protect these systems, including people, plants, animals, and places.” We are all in a constant state of healing as our heart and body are always in a state of self-correction. When we lose touch with our primary stabilizer, our heart, we are disconnected from what resonates with our soul. When we feel connected to others and they to us, our heart feels re-enchanted and energetically reconnected with the world. Our heart opens to wholeness. Connecting to our heart’s wisdom allows us to fall into a shared resonance with other hearts in a form of compassionate spirit. We beat as one when we slow down and simply Be.
We can use a day or a month to bring awareness to any dis-ease or upset to our homeostatic state but the heart remains our center of gravity as we continue to navigate through the rest of the year, day by day. Remaining or attaining wholeness is a daily practice that not only keeps our body at its optimal functioning but our mind and spirit in top shape as well. Let the beginning of March, whether it comes in like a lion or not, start the breath of fresh air to our psyches. Think of new beginnings, little seedlings sprouting, pussy willows popping out, snow drops bursting out as soon as the snow melts. The time for growth is always now and let these beautiful promises of spring in the natural world touch our hearts so we may resonate with a fresh new spirit to everything around us. Get out and notice what might be rising out of the depths of winter, walk in the fresh air with a new lovie, write or call an old friend and make plans to get together this spring and summer Feel how this is what healing is and remember, Heart hugs are always welcome as is the spirit of ALoha. Make it a great week and let’s be thrilled it’s March!!! ALoha!
