As I was doing today’s Journey, my mind was distracted, anxious, irritated. When such things happen (that is, when I am experiencing discord that seems to be interfering with my connection with the Journey), I had to remind myself of this (written on the first day of the Journey):

Why Journey of the Heart is very simple: begin a conscious relationship with yourself, through the heart; take the steps; begin. Each day, connect with your heart, invite your heart-energy to inform your choices, and open to its direction.

Allow it to be simple; allow the opening to be at a pace that is comfortable for you. Too much, and fear may step in, too little and you may not notice. There are many who need to heal their relationship with their heart; it takes time to open, listen, and trust. Be gentle with yourself (and I remind myself of that too!) as you move through the 40-days.

Thus reminded, I was able to let go of whatever those distractions were, and settled in to just doing the picture.

I don’t know what the picture means…I don’t know how to interpret it…I don’t know if it’s telling me something or reflecting something. I just know that the very fact of doing it relaxed me.

This is “how it works”, this Journey of the Heart–doing the work, drawing the pictures, opens something…even if you don’t know what it is, why it is, or what it means. The heart leads when you let it, and your relationship is strengthened all around.
