I had the honor of assisting a client through the beautiful but difficult process of letting her heart break open. Like most of us, she had many defenses over her heart, and yet she wanted to bring a soul mate into her life. I very clearly had seen for her that she was going to have this beautiful soul mate after she jumped off the cliff into her path as a shaman healer, and that they would travel together. The man in the reading looked like the actor who plays Superman, so we called him Superman fondly.
As my client settled in to clear those places in her life that were holding her back from stepping into her calling, wonderful opportunities began to manifest for her. She brought in a job that would solve her financial problems which required a relocation. As she was waiting to relocate, she decided to follow her heart and try new and fun things. She met some wonderful people to whom she connected on many levels. She knew these relationships were temporary because of the upcoming job, so she let herself enjoy herself in the moment. And she started a very close friendship and connection with one of the men she had met.
Because she was in the moment and she had told herself it was temporary, none of her defenses were up, and she was able to deeply connect with this man, and he with her. Her heart was opening, and yet she was fearing the loss of having her heart break if she really let herself love him, since she knew that he wasn’t ultimately for her. I encouraged her to let her heart break all the way open, to let herself truly see and be seen by this man, to let herself love him with no strings attached, if she respected, admired, and loved him as much as she said she did. It did not matter if he wasn’t Superman, what mattered was her being authentic and willing to be truly intimate with him on all levels. The truth was that she loved him, she knew that he loved her, there was nothing preventing declaring this except wanting to spare herself pain and grief when it came to an end.
And she went for it! She held him in a beautiful heart space and told him she loved him. He didn’t respond immediately with his own declaration of love for her. She was able to not take it personally that he didn’t immediately declare his love, because the open heart does not need to take everything personally and understands the soul is on journey. Because her Heart Space was so wide open, it allowed his to open, and he declared his love for her the next day. Then their relationship blossomed, they could see each other as life partners, and an exciting future together was very easy to plan out. I had actually felt the shift in my client from glancing at their picture in between sessions on accident and knew she had jumped off that cliff and found her Superman. Before she took the action and made the declaration, the energy of the picture was completely different.
It was the Open Heart, the willingness to act from that space, and the declaration of love that changed her into Superwoman ready for Superman.
But my client remembered that the original reading told her that he wasn’t her soul mate. So, she was in a bind of fearing that she was giving up the destiny that she really wanted for a man that she loved who wasn’t meant for her. She was conflicted and confused. How could what she had with her lover not be the relationship, how could it not match up with her path as a shaman healer when everything about it now felt fantastic and right? She still was leaving for her new job in just a few weeks, but even the long distance didn’t matter, they were both confident that it would work.
When we next spoke she was reluctant to discuss with me her relationship because she wanted to become clear that she was hearing her own soul before I added any more information. It was with the great pleasure to confirm for her that Yes, this was it!! And that she had made it possible with her huge open heart.
It was part of her journey to walk the painful path of opening her heart without a guarantee of success. It had been a possibility that her lover wouldn’t have responded with his own open heart, and wouldn’t have stepped in as her soulmate. Ironically, it was also part of her journey to feel the conflict of apparently going against what she had thought was her path versus what she knew to be her path. Now she will know for the rest of her life that she can trust her heart, and that she can trust her soul to guide her. She has the visceral experience of knowing what was right for her soul versus what was an old interpretation that didn’t fit the new energy she herself had brought in. My client will Source from her Soul now instead of from anyone else, even her shaman teachers.
I am so excited for this couple, I was laughing and crying as she was telling me her good news. What a joy! This is the magic of the Open Heart. It brings healing and expansion to relationships, it literally pulled in a joyous destiny that was unavailable without the Heart Space to activate it, and it is the only guarantee to a rich and meaningful existence.
