In this month of February, we focus on the heart. Love and gratitude – that’s the train you want
to ride on. Did you know that Christ said “the longest road is from the head to the heart”? In this
world, we are often taught to lead with our heads, to think our way through things, and that everything has to make sense. There is little taught about connecting with and being guided with your heart like
you did when you were born. When you were born, you remembered being from the divine, that
you are divine. As you got older, usually by age 5, you forget and lose connection with who you
really are – Divine.

When you allow yourself to sink down into your heart center, you allow yourself to connect into
your Divine, higher self for guidance. You connect with guidance from the Divine if you are open
to it. You have emotions from the Divine to provide guideposts to your sacred path.

When you desire to know what choices to make in order to stay on your transformative path of
enlightenment and growth, listen to your heart. Listen for your heart’s song of joy, the pull towards experiences that will guide your own self growth. Just close your eyes. Take some
deep breaths through your heart chakra down into your belly. Feel. See the Divine healing light
flow through you and exhale any negative energy, any tenseness. Just let it go. Feel what your
heart is telling you. It will be something positive and connected with love, gratitude, compassion,
joy – a positive emotion.

The more you connect with your higher self, the higher your vibration will get. You will start
responding and acting from a place of love and gratitude. As you know, the Law of Attraction is
that “like energy attracts like energy”. There is also the scientific knowledge that where the energy
flows, that is what grows. So, as you connect with your heart more, and bring more Divine
Love and gratitude into your life, you will grow and attract more experiences and people that have a
higher vibration.

As your inner self transforms, so does your outer. Even your perceptions of events will change as
the vibration of love and gratitude takes over and expands. Being open and at peace with
connecting the Divine, letting love and gratitude flow through you, and responding from your
spiritual center, or your highest self, your whole experience of the world will change. You can raise your
vibration, your heart energy, into the frequency and vibration that you want to tune into.

You can’t fool the universe, the Divine, so it is a choice to do the work. Practice going into
your heart center and letting Divine Energy flow through. If you have difficulty, close your eyes,
take some deep belly breaths and think about someone you love – a family member, friend, pet, etc. Feel
the warmth in your heart. See the warm love going out to the one you love. Just see that beam of
love connecting with your loved one. Great. Now, see yourself with your loved one. Feel the
love connecting you with your self and your loved one. See and feel this Divine Love expanding…
As you practice this exercise, your connection with the Divine and love for yourself will grow, as
will love for everyone and everything in the universe. You start mindfully living in Divine energy,
a universe of love and abundance, and experience it more fully.

You want love and gratitude in your life? Be the love and gratitude. It really is easy – just make the
choice and allow Divine Love to flow through your heart. And be open to experiencing the love
and gratitude in your life being attracted to you!
