    What really causes heartache

    By Gloria Latham

    Do you have the hard conversations with your loved ones? You know, the ones where you express your truest desires, set healthy boundaries, and say the words that must be said….

    Only those must-have conversations take place only in your head…The words never actually make it out of your mouth and into their ears.

    Or maybe the words do make it out…

    Instead of a face-to-face, heart-to-heart conversation, it’s a heated text exchange…you fire back and forth at each other, in a destined-to-fail attempt to resolve important issues.

    But texting is just how it’s done these days, right? Maybe to remind someone to pick up a gallon of milk, definitely not for relationship-impacting issues.

    Why? Because your texts can be cold and cryptic, and so can your partner’s. It’s one of the worst forms of communication for deep issues.

    Why is it so hard to have these conversations…about love, relationships, boundaries, desires…in the right way?

    Because expressing what’s in your heart is allowing yourself to be fully seen.

    It takes a lot of courage to express what’s in your heart.

    When you speak from courage, you can’t hide behind texting any longer. And you can’t carry on conversations in your head only to freeze when it comes to having them in real life.

    Allowing yourself to be fully seen through healthy self-expression is how you build relationships based on your truth. And this is a key step in learning to Heal Your Heart.

    Heartache is a result of not being true to yourself in your relationships. When you constantly hide who you are solely to please others, you build relationships on a stack of lies.

    Your need to be liked and accepted is a powerful driving force for your behaviours. It takes courage to risk being seen for who you really are.

    Are you willing to risk the relationship you have for the more fulfilling one you crave?

    You don’t have to do this work alone. The Kundalini yoga and meditation techniques you experience in my online immersion, Heal Your Heart, breakthrough your fear of rejection and strengthen your sense of self, so you can learn to express yourself fully and build relationships based on the truth of who you are.

    A key component of the course is third chakra activation because your third chakra is responsible for your courage and sense of self.

    It takes courage to have open and honest conversations with the ones you love. It can leave you feeling raw and exposed. But incredible healing happens when you get up the courage to have those difficult conversations.

    So, my questions for you are:

    Where are you withholding your truth – for fear of what it might do to your relationship?

    Is there some aspect of yourself you’re hiding for fear of rejection?

    And are you willing to call on your courage to change?

    Sat Nam,
