2017 was a year in which I perceived myself as being much more tender. Many situations moved me to tears. I cried of sadness, despair, compassion, happiness, bliss, gratitude, and I feel the world, life itself, people move me. Something very deep has changed within me. It feels as if one of the many layers I had as a protection around my heart cracked open and this opened a door. I simply allow myself to be in touch with my feelings.
I realize that all that touches my heart helps me in my unlearning process. I’m unlearning to be the little Juliana, who believed herself to be separate and alone. I’ve been unlearning my own belief that the world is cruel and frightening and allowing myself to see and feel all its beauty, all the love messages that now shine like a lighted sign.
I have been unlearning that intense feelings are dangerous and started allowing them to show me my own perfection just as I am now. I’ve been unlearning that, to be perfect, I must have my emotions under control and have started allowing them to manifest freely. So I write this text moved by one of the many scenes that touched my heart.
Like in many other years, I’m with friends celebrating the beginning of a new year and I realize how good it is to exchange smiles with people I admire so much. So simple and so fulfilling! And the tears, which are familiar by now, run freely and I don’t try to hold them back. There is a knowing that in this moment my heart reminded me of the Truth. Reminded me that everything is Love and I feel deeply loved by God, by the Universe, by all beings and by myself. I let my heart lead my way.
I wish you sincerely that you let your heart be touched in 2018 and I also share a quote from A Course of Love, that has become a precious key that opened up a new world about which I fine out more each day with curiosity and joy:
“Where you learned to hate, you will learn to love. Where you learned to fear, you will learn safety. Where you learned to distrust, you will learn trust. And each learning experience will be a learning experience because it will touch your heart. It may be as simple as a smile from a child that melts away all the resentment you held from your childhood—because you allow that smile to touch your heart. It may be a time of weepiness and what you would term emotionalism. You may feel as if everything makes you want to cry because everything will touch you, each lesson will feel tender. Unlearning has no harshness about it. If you simply allow it to come, it will reward you constantly with what can best be described as tenderness.(…) No lessons learned without love touch your heart. No lessons that do not touch your heart will accomplish anything.” ACOL T.24

Happy New year to everyone! Juliana started of the New Year for us and James will write the blog for next week. We love the idea of during this year being as open as possible to our feelings, to spirit, and to love, without putting any barriers in the way. We hope you will join us.
James and Catia are the trainers at the 4-day English-speaking Miracle Choice Facilitator Training Programme in Sweden next week, so miracles will be floating down like snow: gently and beautifully.
James, Catia and Juliana
