"Keep your heart light as a feather and you will soar like an eagle or hawk."
-- Andrale Marie'
Hmmm, what do you think that means? Or how does it resonate to you?
The eagle soars and has the ability to fly over any storms, instead of taking shelter like the other birds, the eagle reaches new levels. And of course, the hawk soars and is able to fly at a higher distance.
Would the eagle or hawk have the ability to fly if one of them had a heavy heart? How about any kind of baggage? The answer is no, because those things could weigh them down. In the same sense, it would be difficult for a person to reach new levels if they have a heavy heart or carrying any baggage.
A heavy heart and baggage coincides with one another. Baggage in the form of carrying around things that happened in the past, guilt, pain and etc. All those things affect the emotional and spiritual nature of the heart, and causes the heart to become heavy. And if a person's heart is heavy, how can they fly or reach new levels in their life?
The hawk can be your spirit animal or you can have the spirit of a hawk, but if you have a heavy heart, then how can you soar like one? And if there's baggage there, it's time to let go. It's time to do a heart detox and cleanse your heart of any heavy feelings and emotions. Rid yourself of unhappiness, sadness, pain from situations that's already happened and people who are no longer in your life, let it go! Why are you still holding on? Pain does not attach itself to anybody, it has to be held, so let it go! This guilt that's been weighing on your heart, please forgive yourself today of whatever it is you are beating yourself about and began to heal.
Technically, it's not your experiences, situation, environment or the people you are around or come in contact with that's making you unhappy; but it's your reaction, perspective; and the interactions of energies. You are the only one with the power to allow anybody or anything to affect you. If you don't like something, change it and if you can't, make peace with it and move on. And please stop replaying negative experiences over and over again. It happened, leave it where it is, for example: if something happened two weeks ago, let it stay there! Because today is not having it, two weeks ago is past tense and today is the present, a gift to you; so unravel and discover all the blessings of it.
August is a month of transition where September comes in with the evolution of change, the leaves start turning colors, the weather changes and etc. So, this month sow a seed towards the betterment of yourself. Let go of any baggage and detox your heart from all that's making it heavy. Forgive yourself, forgive others, make peace with yourself and others as well.
Set your heart free that it may become light as a feather, for you to discover your wings and soar to new levels.
