Love can be difficult - here's how to make it easier

We all crave love. It is what makes us feel alive, happy, and complete. Love gives us a sense of connection to something larger than ourselves, and it is essential for our emotional health and well-being.

But love can be difficult to find sometimes – especially if we are not open to receiving it. This article will discuss the importance of opening your heart to let love flow into your life.

How Can We Open Our Heart?

Opening Our Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is connected with love, self-love, compassion, and relationships. When balanced, our ability to love and be loved exceeds expectations. We feel supported by our relationships, and we can give and receive love freely.

If it is out of balance, you may feel like carrying the world's weight on your shoulders. As a result, you may feel disconnected and find it difficult to let love flow into your life. You may also struggle with self-love, which can reflect in your relationships.

Things we can do to make sure our heart chakra is open include:

  • Meditating on love

  • Using heart chakra crystals and setting intentions with them

  • Visualizing your heart opening up and filling with love

  • Spending time with loved ones

  • Doing something kind for someone else.


Self-love may sound cliché, but it’s true – if you don’t love and appreciate yourself, it will be challenging to let someone else do the same. So one way to start opening your heart is by practicing self-love and self-care.

You are honouring your mind, soul and body. Using the Crystal Dreams Body Serum will create a protecting shield over your body. So for the rest of the day, you will walk around feeling inner peace and love.

It becomes easier to open up and let love in when you care for yourself.


Another way to open your heart is to practice mindfulness. For example, paying attention to our words – are your thoughts kind and loving, or are they critical and judgmental?

One way to start shifting negative is by affirmations. Repeating positive statements can help retrain your brain and open up your heart.

Try using the Body Serum affirmations.

Immerse Yourself in Nature

Finally, spending time in nature can also be a heart-opening experience. When we reconnect with nature, we can feel a sense of peace and love. Try spending time outside in the trees, the mountains next to the ocean, and see how it makes you feel.

Are you open to love? If not, why not? What are you afraid of? Love is such a beautiful thing. It's worth taking the risk.

When we love ourselves fully and completely, we open our hearts to let love flow into our lives more easily.

That's all for this week's edition of Self Care Sunday.

I wish you all the best on your journey to letting love flow.

Love and gratitude, Andrea S. Barone ❤️
