Awe stretches the heart

Awe stretches the heart

“When suffering constricts the heart, awe stretches it back out, making us more compassionate, more loving, more present.” ~Valarie Kaur

I love this image of awe restoring a constricted heart! How often do you allow yourself to truly experience awe as an adult? Perhaps we would all be well served by seeking it out and immersing ourselves in awe more often.

Listen to your soul

Listen to your soul

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.” ~Caroline Myss

When we’re hurting, the mind tends to go into overdrive in its efforts to find a way to “fix” us, but the mind isn’t where we’ll find the answers. Learning to quiet the mind enough to let us listen to our souls will lead us to better answers and faster healing.
