Feeling a Friend’s Heart Breaking

Earlier this week, I met with a friend. We talked for quite a long time about this and that. It wasn’t until we were in the parking lot leaving that he began to share why he wanted to meet up with me.

He and his partner have recently chosen not to be together. Both of these friends are each wonderful people and amazing together. I hadn’t understood what was happening with them until this moment in the parking lot when we finally got down to the heart of things.

As my friend moved beyond his rational mind into the still place, I felt his heart breaking in my chest. This wasn’t an emotional response. It was very much like opening myself to energetic flow. Typically, it’s my hands responding to someone’s physical pain. In this moment the electric charge feeling was in my chest, and I’m pretty sure my heart. And it passed through my body like a wave of energy would in a healing session.

My friends feel guided to not be together. And I was present to feel what was happening energetically with one of them as they pulled apart. This may be the first time I’ve been sensitive enough to be aware of something like this physically in my heart.

Like I said it wasn’t an emotional experience. In fact, the energetic hit took me by surprise. Afterwards there was a sense of released tension in my body.

We are all connected. Whether we are aware of the connection or not it is there. Your heart is a very real, physical connection point to the rest of humanity.
