Unchain My Heart

Think of something in your life … something that bothers you.  It could be as simple as the fact that your spouse ALWAYS does the same thing that you perpetually ask them NOT to do.  Think of something deeper.  Maybe a family member hurt you with something they said, and you’ve never forgiven them.  Further … more … think of something truly painful.  Perhaps you were savagely betrayed by someone you gave your heart, no – your soul, to … they lied, left you suffering, and moved on without a care in the world.  More still … for some of us there are more worlds beyond that … abuse, neglect, spiritual warfare … you paint the picture.

Now visualize EACH of those things as a tangible force … a piece of twine, a cord, a rope, a chain … depending on the impact it has on you as a person.  Allow yourself to sit and meditate … let whatever comes to your mind be welcome … don’t push it away because it is painful.  Allow it to be, feel it … and then SEE it for whatever tangible manifestation it becomes … it could even be something like a brick wall … wherever you mind goes, allow it to go there.

After a while … as you go through more, and more, and more … and more … you begin to see how TRULY tied up you are.  You have the small things that, on there own really aren’t much … just some twine wrapping around you.  Enough of them though can truly make you inert.  Then you add the deeper issues … going all the way to things that perhaps you have held on to since your childhood.  Those manifestations become downright paralyzing all on their own … and these are the things that you walk around with EVERY DAY!

Try to liberate yourself from one of these things each and every day.  We accumulate them each and every day, so why not get rid of at least one each and every day??  Cut one of those cords … forgive, let go of control, watch that one isolated issue fall away and invite God’s Love to take the place of what you just severed … God will do so … and it will bring you happiness.


This post was a result of meditating on my prior post, “Ties that bind“.  Pic by Samantha Stebbins.


Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
