How to Cleanse Our Hearts

How to Cleanse Our Hearts

Our hearts not only encompass the strongest and wisest aspects of our nature, but also the softest and most vulnerable ones as well. Because life can be difficult, our hearts may become encrusted with feelings of fear and disillusionment or stained by sorrow and self-deprecating beliefs.

Even if our lives have been utterly smooth, without a single pebble upon our path, we may have at least gathered a little dust along the way. Learn how to cleanse your heart, here:

Because Spirit moves more freely through a clear heart, we can best embody heart energy when we cleanse our hearts. Doing so will provide an unobstructed passage through which Godís love can flow.

When you can find a few quiet moments–even if it is before falling asleep tonight or arising tomorrow morning–tenderly perform a heart-check. With your eyes closed, place your hands over your heart and tell it that you love it. Sincerely thank your heart for its absolute faithfulness.

Now see or sense the condition of your heart. Trust your wise intuition; whatever appears is probably the perfect symbol for you right now. Does it look clean? Does it feel clear? If not, ask what you can do right now to cleanse and heal your heart. Honor the answer, even if it seems strange.

Cleanse and clear your heart when it needs it.
Invite the Spirit to flow easily through your heart.
