Opening Your Heart
By Sonia Choquette
A day hardly goes by in which I don't have a client or student call me despairing over the inability to create her or his heart's desires. "I'm visualizing. I'm letting go. I'm making right choices. I'm trying so hard! What is wrong? What is keeping me from my dream?" they cry. Usually when I hear such despairing words, my suspicions go directly to their application of Principle #2 of Your Heart's Desire: Believe in Your Dream.
You see, most people have no difficult envisioning their dreams, and will do anything to achieve them. But Principle #2 is not about doing. It is about accepting what the Universe will do for you. It is about having enough self-love to believe that what you dream of, dreams of you as well, and that the universe wants you to have such experiences.
If you are stuck in creating your heart's desire in spite of your efforts, then focus your attention on Principle #2, and ask yourself if you honestly believe in your dream. Can your heart open enough to allow the Universe to bring you your desires? Can you believe that what you want is not only possible but it is your spiritual birthright - whether is love, work, health, or friendship?
Sadly enough, many people do not believe this. Instead, through childhood upsets and early life training, they believe they don't deserve anything at all. It is what they've been told. It is what they've learned. And it is what holds them back. One may not be conscious of these sabotaging feelings. These beliefs may be so loathsome and painful that they are carefully hidden behind all that "doing" and go unrecognized.
I usually spot these beliefs by how hard one tries; as if only by some superhuman effort can one deserve any happiness at all. If you are harboring such destructive beliefs, you will remain separate from your heart. Recognize these beliefs for what they are: absolute, complete and life-destroying lies. They are not the truth of you.
The truth is you are spiritual light being, a child of God, sweet and lovable, pure and simple. Embrace it. Inhale it. Remember it. Believe it! And stop trying. You are loved and lovable. You don't have to work for it. It is there for you because of who you are.
If you have lost touch with this truth, take in a slow breath. Do you question your right to air? Of course not. You take in air without effort by virtue of being human. In the same way, receive from the Universe what lies in your heart, by virtue of being divine. So be it! Happy creating!
