The Treasure Within Your Heart

Sometimes, all of us has to be burnt away; in order for the new to rise.
And so, too, in relationship.

But that doesn’t mean it’s an ending;
simply a rebirth, the flames so strong 
and totally cleansing.

To leave the mind and the body, totally
Freed —
of those entrapping shackles, that were 
weighing true Love down,
and preventing it’s sweet flower
from blooming.

And in the end, once you realise 
that One is All
and All is One
then you’ll remember —

everything you desire
is already found 
in the sacred cave of treasure,
hidden within your heart
that’s now emerging 
in Divine revelation 
golden light, brightening
the Dawn.

Keep opening the heart, no matter what has happened to you in the past. Don’t let wounds, stories, traumas, prevent you from loving again… because you are worthy and deserving of feeling loved, and being loved. And for that, we must be open to receive this love in the first place…

Something that helps me when I am going through a difficult moment emotionally, when my heart feels tender and vulnerable and I’m doubting whether I want to trust and open, is to do a meditation/visualisation where I imagine that my own heart is a portal into the universe, containing everything that I need.

This helps me relax, feeling safe and comfortable, and with the knowing that love is sourced within me as opposed to found in an external person or thing. Often, we shut out love because we are afraid of the feelings of vulnerability that come with attachment and dependency on the external, or feeling like another person is “in control” of our heart and emotions. But when we anchor within ourselves, we start to realise that ultimately we are responsible for our own love and happiness. Everything else just adds to our experience, and we can enjoy connections, relationships, and possessions, without attachment, appreciating them for what they bring, but without reliance on what is ultimately out of our control – because we can never control another persons feelings or behaviours.

I invite you to try this visualisation – get creative. What do you see when you look inside your heart? Try to picture the feeling of love. How does it look? Perhaps it is warm, bright and golden, like a summer sun warming you on the beach; or perhaps it is a rich, cosy, woollen blanket, wrapping you as you sit by a crackling fire to break the winter chill.

I also want you to know that even within the same relationship, we can go through cycles of death and rebirth; endings of old dynamics that are no longer serving, in order to make space for new, healthier dynamics, as the individuals within the relationship mature and grow.

We are here to heal, grow, rise and shine together. Choose relationships that support growth, and give you the freedom to express fully and authentically, as the loving being that you are. Don’t be afraid to let go if something isn’t working out – find that feeling of safety and love within yourself, to be your own anchor as you move away on your journey through life. But equally, don’t be afraid to open. To trust, surrender, and be vulnerable – because therein lies true intimacy, connection, and expansion.

Have a beautiful and love-filled weekend!
