LIVING WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING OPEN TO GIVING AND RECEIVING LOVE
All rainbows and unicorns aside, love is important. It changes the composition and interaction of your cells on a molecular level that science can't always explain. Im not referring to romance love, Im referring to the unconditional love you develop through gratitude for yourself and all living beings. Even the ones that seem to be god sent tests of your daily patience. Love is key to accepting, believing and flowing with the bliss of life. Its something worth waking up for, finding, taking care of and sharing. The region of your body that affects how open and loving you feel is the heart chakra (anahata chakra) located at the respiratory center of the chest below the sternum.
