On a recent journey to my spirit allies, I asked what they could tell me about love. This is what they said:
“You have seen inside your heart, and you know it is a beautiful place, but you feel that most people are not worthy to be there. And it may be true that most people are unworthy. If you let people who are not worthy into your heart, there may be pain and disruption, but it is through pain and disruption that we receive the most growth.”
I was then shown a gerbil in a plastic ball, rolling across the floor, and was told:
“He can not be hurt inside the ball, but he is cut off from all of his senses and his feelings.”
I found these words to be quite relevant, especially in my case. I have been hurt beyond repair by people who were important in my life, and have not let anyone else become close to me for a very long time. So, after these wise words from my spirit allies, I must decide: Do I open my heart to the joys of love as well as the pain of emotional growth, or do I stay safe and protected in my plastic ball?
