What does your heart need today?
Here is a short meditation to help you to take a moment for yourself to connect with your heart. You might like to place one or both hands on your heart space as you do this.
Feel the energy of it. Notice the colours. Notice the shape. Notice what you notice.
Breathe into it. Softly. Deeply. Compassionately.
Feel it beating. Feel it giving you life force. Feel it holding you.
Feel the stillness. Feel the connection. Feel the trust.
Ask your heart, what does it need today?
Trust the answer and do what you can to give it to yourself.
Do this meditation as often as you need. I recommend daily: first thing in the morning and whenever you need to connect back into your truth and authentic self.
