22-121 Heart to Heart

Today’s Mandala
Heart to Heart

“Love is a light
that shines from heart to heart.”

— John Denver

“If people like you,
they’ll give you a hand.
But if they trust you,
they’ll give you their heart.
And heart to heart,
we can face anything together.”

— Steve Goodier

“When you’re in touch with your heart,
you feel a connection with others
and you have access to your wisdom.”

— Kristine Carlson

Today’s MotD encourages us to embrace the idea of heart-to-heart connections. One of the best ways to do this is through hugging (if it’s mutual and safe to do so). And if we can do it heart-to-heart, meaning from our left sides versus the conventual right sides, even better. From the left puts our hugging hearts mere inches apart. (Benefits of hugging)

“A hug is always the right size.”

— Winnie the Pooh

“…by leading with our left arms rising, it means we dip down to the right, so that when we embrace our hearts physically connect. By touching our left-sides together we share our heart emotions, our care and our love. What a profound shift from hugging on our right-sides, where we share the emotions of our livers, where all our anger, resentment and pain are stored. By hugging on our right-sides, we connect the negative, sad aspects of ourselves.”

Whitney McMillan

Hugging is a gift that’s given and reciprocated at the same time, raising the vibrations of all involved. The next best heart-to-heart connection is through laughter. After all, it is considered the best medicine. From Caregiver.com: ”Laughter controls pain by decreasing muscle tension, distracting attention, and increasing the production of endorphins, natural pain killers. Laughter is like giving yourself an internal massage as it stimulates and soothes. It truly is medicine for the heart.

So imagine how much more powerful it would be to laugh and hug at the same time!
