I am sure all of you have experienced those wonderful “heart moments.” Those times when you feel nothing can harm you, when nothing is beyond your reach. It is in those moments that you can forgive, accept, and reconcile. A ‘heart moment’ happens when you have absolute clarity about what is going on inside of you and around you.
Being in a heart space simply means you are allowing one of the qualities of the heart (or heart energy) to be present in you. All the qualities of the heart are available to you, but not all are claimed. For instance, Patience is a quality of the heart that is often times claimed by mothers. To be a good friend you need to claim such heart qualities as Kindness, Gentleness, Clarity, and sometimes you may even need Strength. The list of heart qualities is almost endless.
The purpose of our life here on earth is to claim these heart energies as our own. They are our birthright, our gifts from God. Once we claim them, we can empower them through expression.
