I don't know about you, but I can be resistant to spending time alone with my thoughts. And ironically, I have experienced my biggest spiritual breakthroughs by sitting with my emotions of sadness! I always say "you have to feel it to heal it"! You do have to allow yourself to feel those deep hidden emotions that we spend so much time trying to stuff down or run from. And the largest chakra center - your emotional report card - is your heart. So try to schedule some time weekly to do a "scan" of your feeling center. Sit quietly and take a few deep breaths. Then mentally ask your heart if there is anything that you need to know or issues you need to address. And just observe whatever thoughts surface. Pay attention to what you are feeling as this is happening. For your emotions are your guidance center. You will be amazed at how healing this can be!! Afterwards, always say "thank you" to close out the session!
