Weekly Question by Cheryl Marlene

What Blocks Me From Hearing the Truth of My Heart?

Life brings a full flow filled with a vast array of experiences. Some experiences uplift and expand, offering an opportunity to move beyond. Other experiences challenge understanding and hurt the heart.

In the hurt, the habit is to cover, protect, hide to avoid future pain. A natural reaction, yet as you mature and open to your journey and its spiritual aspects, you have choice about how you respond to the flow of your life.

In this choice, you can begin to discern opportunity and challenge, and find ways to move away from instinctual response, creating new patterns which support the depth of who you are in this moment and can become in the next.

This opening allows a new hearing of your heart and the truth emerging when you are willing to make new choices and shift the trajectory of your life and resonance with your heart’s truth.

In this place you can ask:

What blocks me from hearing the truth of my heart?

The wise person asks questions.

My father has said this to me since I was young child just learning to read.

When you ask a question, you are giving yourself the opportunity to learn.

Learning is life. Learn always. Open to learn.

How? Simple: ask questions!

Use the question to learn.

Ask. Tune in. Follow flow. Ponder and reflect.

The Weekly Question offers you a chance to step back and learn about yourself.  For example, you may use the question as part of a meditation practice or while taking a mindful walk.  Cheryl highly recommends reflection. Reflection is a method of focused thought and is a great way to work with any question.  Here’s an article describing the Three Steps of Reflection.
