How to heal a broken heart is a multifaceted process that takes patience. The first step is to accept that our heart is broken. Whether it is through the death of a loved one, a relationship ending or a betrayal in a close relationship the broken heart will heal when we focus on that intention.

Once you accept the pain and embrace the experience how to heal a broken heart can be revealed to you. The natural inclination is to protect the heart by denying that the heart is broken. Anger and blame can easily be a way to mask the pain focusing outside of self.

The heart is the healer, the purifier. The heart's purpose is to give and receive love unconditionally. In learning how to heal a broken heart we need to be conscious of our heart's natural function. It is important to not close down the heart as a result of the pain. This is simple but it is not easy.

Be Patient

Be patient with the process of healing the broken heart. It does take time. There is no need to rush an organic process that is done from the inside out. Remember to stay in the moment.

It is difficult to be present to the pain when your natural inclination is to avoid the harshness of the experience. Be patient knowing that you honor your body as well as your mind, emotions and spirit when you consciously focus your intention on healing your heart.

In surrendering to the pain in your heart the universe provides you with what you need in order to heal. So be patient. You attract to you the compassionate, loving friends that support your healing. All you need to do is receive their love.

Self Love

Self love is an essential ingredient in healing the broken heart. Love is a powerful energy that is within us and all around us.

God is love, and we, being the children of Goddess means that our essence is love. It takes the powerful energy of self love to heal the shattered heart.

Self love is necessary for us to live as the spirit beings that we are, having a human experience. So many of us focus on seeking love from outside of ourselves through our relationships with parents, friends, intimate partners and children. We all want to give and receive love.

When we by-pass self love and search for love from others first, we hinder our growth and development as spiritual beings. Then when our hearts are broken our challenge to heal is more compounded.

The place to begin first and foremost on our spiritual journey is with self love especially as we are healing the broken heart. Through consciously breathing into the heart, having patience and receiving support from loved ones and the Universe our broken hearts will heal. Our hearts will then be capable of loving even more powerfully without limitations. And so it is!

Intuitive Readings Seattle - Reiki Healing Seattle - Meditation Seattle

For more than 28 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world, including India, China and England. Some clients prefer to come see me in person for an Intuitive Reading. However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions.

Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn't matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same - to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Seattle or a phone session with me, it's best to write down your questions ahead of time. This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.

I encourage all of you to:

Live your true potential
Feel your own wholeness
Experience inner peace and joy
Express your creativity
Be who you really are- perfectly human and perfectly divine
