Your head was meant for thinking, not feeling. Your heart was designed for both feeling and healing. It’s an expert at it. Perhaps it’s time for a role reversal. Here’s how to do it…

If you’re feeling with your head, guess what? You’re going to have a headache…a lot of them.

Kim McMillan said, “When I loved myself enough I started feeling all my feelings, not analyzing them — really feeling them. When I do, something amazing happens. Try it. You will see.”

Notice the words: “I started.”

This is vital.

Start with your heart, and it will start your heart’s healing power.

When we stop starting and stopping and starting and stopping…but instead, we push “play” on our feelings and feel them, healing begins and continues.

The conductor is the HEART.

The most powerful lesson I’ve learned about feeling and healing from my heart is this.

“Feel it, don’t feed it.”

We feel it with our hearts.

We feed it with your heads.

And the best way to know is to feel it for yourself.

I invite you.

(This is the continuation of our Enough Is Enough Series — based on the profound little book, When I Loved Myself Enough by Kim McMillen and Alison McMillen-Givnish. You can order a copy HERE.)

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Begin by writing everything that you’re feeling.

Then allow yourself to feel it. (Ask for help if you need it.) Sit with it. Don’t resist it, run from it, or judge it. Simply be with it. Feel it…

(You can do it. Yes, you can.)

How does THAT feel?
