My Wild Heart & the Healing Words Of Don Miguel Ruiz

I fall in Love with Love or with the Longing to be in Love ~ after just a brief heartbreak from my last break up ~ inside my wild heart I am Remembering The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz 

It was a set up, my dream of Love started after my epic first kiss. I am a Romantic and I always have been, a Heart & Body Love Junkie.

Every Astrologer reads my chart for Love, Sex, My Spiritual Path, Motherhood, My Work in the World as an Artist & Fame ….. AKA Tantra.

I tell myself stories & often I project so much passion on to my relationships that I live in a dream. I am in love with love in all of it’s forms & I would be a mess if I did not have my camera… it is my tool for grounding. Without it I feel as though I might explode from all of the love in my heart for this realm … this place of beauty & strife.

A few weeks ago my last partner left me.

The last two weeks have been very wild in my heart because my heart does not close down in times like these, it opens even more. I have done some deep work and faced much about myself during some very long sleepless nights.

There are so many great teachings & I look to many of them all the time. I love the teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz who wrote The Four Agreements.

Before I got deeply into this relationship my 15 year old son Gabriel lovingly said to me, “Mom, do you really want to be a conduit for another man’s spiritual transformation?”  He is a wise young man & it is a powerful, funny & very good question.

I honor that relationship for all of the deep beauty & hard times. I was apart of it all. Nothing was done to me, I am responsible for my actions. I do also know that I can find heart rocks all over the place on my own, as I always have & the deepest love is within myself.

xox, Jen

  “If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn’t walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her.

Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want. You will find that you don’t need to trust others as much as you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.”

“If you live in a past dream, you don’t enjoy what is happening right now because you will always wish it to be different than it is.There is no time to miss anyone or anything because you are alive. Not enjoying what is happening right now is living in the past and being only half alive. This leads to self pity, suffering and tears.” Don Miguel Ruiz
