Speak From Your Heart, Not From Your Hurt
Speak From Your Heart, Not From Your Hurt
Communication can bring healing.
This week, as I was doing my Three-Card Weekly Reading on Facebook Live, the cards I had pulled caused me to say, “speak from your heart, not from your hurt”. A number of viewers commented on this; it seemed to really strike a chord with people. It certainly did with me.
How often have we said things we regretted because of the emotions we were feeling at the time? How often have we given the weight of our pain and anger to those who weren’t the cause of that pain?
Even when speaking to someone who has caused us pain, we are more effective when we don’t let our pain guide the conversation.
When we communicate with friends and loved ones it is important to be authentic. We need to let people know where we are coming from. If we are feeling pain, we need to share that. The trick is to speak about the pain rather than to let the pain speak.
When we give voice to our pain and hurt, we very often speak with resentment, fear and anger. When we speak about our pain and hurt, we can speak thoughtfully and in a way that doesn’t cause more hurt.
There are many people who feel we need to keep all conversations positive; that we should only speak about pleasant things and keep the unpleasant things private. Yet, when we bury our feelings, they can fester and become the foundation for depression, anxiety and low self-esteem.
We need to acknowledge our pain in order to find healing. Very often that healing comes from communication. Sometimes it is impossible to share our feelings with those who have caused us the most hurt. It’s good when we can find a friend, loved one or professional to help us process our grief. Never should we direct that pain and hurt toward a person. Yet, we should always have at least one person with whom we can talk about our feelings.
The next time you are having a difficult conversation, make sure you are speaking from your heart, not from your hurt. The next time something makes you angry, find a way to acknowledge that anger without blasting that angry energy at another person.
Own your feelings and speak of them honestly. But don’t let your feelings do the speaking.

Cards for Your Consideration
The tarot Pages often represent young people. Yet, they have other meanings, too. One important thing the Pages can indicate is communication. The type of communication is determined by the suit.
Since the suit of Cups is related to the element of Water, and Water is about matters of the heart, the Page of Cups can instruct us to speak from the heart, and to communicate in a loving way.
Sometimes this card can even show up as a message of love from a departed loved one!
If many Pages appear in a tarot spread, there may be a need to pay attention to communication. If the Page of Cups appears, it may be an indicator that you need to speak what is in your heart.
This Page of Cups is from Ciro Marchetti’s Tarot of Dreams. Get your copy of this striking deck from my website.
