"A side effect of living from a place of lack and fear is a guarded, disconnected, and distrusting heart.
Living in alignment requires you to activate your heart, trust in its wisdom and take action inspired by its intuitive guidance.
I know that heart space wisdom and intuitive guidance can feel hard to reach, especially if you've experienced devastating trauma and loss; but contracting and closing off will only take you further away from liberation, abundance, adventure, love, and bliss.
Practices that hold space for you to get still, self-reflect, tune into the subtle cues, nurture yourself and nourish self-trust and self-love are the pathway back.
Some of my favorite practices are journaling, meditation, yoga, exercise, getting into nature, self-care, and practicing gratitude.
Rewiring your brain around what it means to lead with the heart is helpful too; you can live life with an open heart and still stand firmly in your power with healthy boundaries and backbone.
Living a life full of magic and goodness is not void of heartbreak or pain, it has its challenges too; but with those inevitable hardships, leading with love brings a greatest sense of empowerment, purpose, fulfillment, all of which ignite your soul, making every challenge along the way worth it!"
