Janie's Unlocked Heart Story
I was married 1964 a very young 21. I married my highschool sweetheart. We were both very immature and I had such fear and low self-esteem that I masked with bravado. My husband was very moody and insecure. Later he was diagnosed with bipolar and manic depressive. We had two boys and were married 13 years. Through out our time together, I began to realize I could not manage his swings and mood changes. I became fearful for the boys age 3 & 5. I struggled with fearful thoughts and was terribly afraid of how I would manage if I asked for a divorce.
At that time I was not established in my spiritual practice. I knew deep within that I would be supported, but those moments of courage were fleeting. I prayed and began meditating envisioning my freedom and protection for my boys. I decided it was time.
I went to visit a friend over thanksgiving weekend and talked to her at length about my decision. When I returned home I told my husband I wanted a divorce. In that moment I felt a magnificent light go through me and I knew my heart was in charge. There were many challenges throughout the divorce process but each one was met with an enormous wave of true knowing. That was one of my most profound unlocked heart experiences.
My life has continued to evolve more spiritually through that experience. I learned to trust my knowing. To ask and listen to my hearts wisdom. My fears sometimes show up, but almost immediately I am able to go into my heart center and bring forth the love and light I need.
