We have no guarantees. Security, safety, social standing, career, love–it all can change with or without warning. When our conditions change, our sense of well-being is replaced by a sense of fear and we lessen our willingness to give and to love contracting our hearts in self-protection. This is a natural response, but it is not a healthy one.
When our life changes in a way that frightens us, it is opening our hearts and not closing them that begets healing. Opening ourselves up allows the Universe to provide for us. With open hands, minds and hearts we receive lessons, love, blessings, friends and lovers. With ourselves open, we are guided and protected.
The key to opening ourselves up is hope. Hope brings about faith and faith is the believe that we are loved and protected and that what we need is here. We may not see it, but it is here. So when life shifts, when despair taints your vision, when desperation taps on your door, hold on to hope. Hope is the last thing to die and it is what will bring us back to life.
