When I think of Unconditional Love, I am reminded of animals and their innocence. We can learn from animals in the way of their kindness and gentleness. Even animals that have been abused seem to be able to forgive, forget, and love again. They have a pure heart. Often in life, we can accumulate scar tissue around our hearts and we can find ourselves in a space of bitterness and coldness. We can fixate on the pain of the past and it can prevent us from being open to the love that is waiting there right in front of us. A closed heart that is no longer willing to love is a painful thing to see and experience. Being hurt can provide a constant memory that prevents us from loving again. But it does not have to be that way. The Creator understands our thoughts and our journey. He is always here to help us start again, renewing our hearts. This week we are bestowed one of the greatest gifts of the entire year. As we enter in the new month of Virgo, the Universe gives us the chance to let go of the past allowing us to love once again. We are given the profound gift of renewal and cleansing this week. Affording us the ability to become like a child again who is open and ready to face the world. We are given the gift of a new heart. A heart that will allow us to activate the Divinity within and end our unnecessary suffering. The world is lacking love; we need it more than ever before.
