Being open and loving requires a vitality and a flexibility of both the mind and the heart. When I am less than open I am blocked. I build fences and walls around myself to keep away hurt, negativity, criticism and pain.

Unfortunately these same walls and fences built to protect me keep me from receiving love, joy, abundance and prosperity. I cannot have my wall and have my joy too. It takes strength and courage to remain open. It takes willingness and a certain knowledge that wherever I am it is safe. It is safe because I can consciously CHOOSE how I think, and therefore how I feel, about my circumstances.

Fortunately, that vitality and flexibility of mind and heart is a natural benefit of being loving and open.  So, the very minute we decide to be more loving and open, and begin making more loving choices, we begin to be lifted and carried to more and more opportunities and instead of climbing up a mountain we’re now rolling down a hill.  Life gets a whole lot easier when we’re willing to be loving.

In a letter to Martha Graham, Agnes DeMille wrote these inspiring words:

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening
that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all time,
this expression is unique.

If you block it,
it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.
The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is;
not how valuable it is;
nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours,
clearly and directly,
to keep the channel open.

You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.

Keep the channel open.
No artist is pleased.
There is no satisfaction whatever at any time.
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction;
a blessed unrest that keeps us marching
and makes us more alive than others.”

Every day it’s worth looking for areas where you may have built walls to protect yourself. Walls for protection can quickly become like prison walls.  Today let’s set our intention to dissolve the blocks to Love and BE open and flexible. Today, we set ourselves free!

Retreat with me!

I’m offering a deeply healing, renewing and restoring retreat March 16 to 19 in New York.  As always on my retreats we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re doing a lot of deep cleansing and clearing of old emotional and mental baggage so that we can live a much higher quality of life and be more available for LOVE.  It’s such a relief to let the negative patterns and resentments, the guilt, shame and blame go!  If you’d like to start your spring with real clarity and healing, come join me!  Click here for details about my Masterful Living Retreat – the early bird discount EXPIRES TOMORROW – this retreat is open to all – come and bring a friend!
