About Expanding Your Heart
We each have been shaken to the core as a result of a life-changing experience. Yet, not everyone has access to support and guidance when faced with a challenging situation. That’s why Wendy De Rosa wrote Expanding Your Heart: Four Stages of a Spiritual Opening.
Wendy thoughtfully crafted Expanding Your Heart to serve as a powerful tool for:
- Working through and understanding personal struggle.
- Resolving feelings of being stuck, lost, anxious, or depressed.
- Healing your life.
- Living in a more spiritually connected way.
In her book, she offers an inspiring perspective on trauma with insightful, highly approachable content for anyone who struggles with chaos or a painful past. Specifically, she introduces the concept of the Four Stages of a Spiritual Opening.
Four Stages of a Spiritual Opening
Our deepest struggles can become a doorway to our greatest freedom–the catalyst from which our spiritual heart opens and expands–with the proper guidance. Whether you endeavor to heal yourself or others, Expanding Your Heart will lead you through the following Four Stages of a Spiritual Opening to transform trauma to freedom:
- Stage 1: Initial Heart Opening–A difficult or life-altering experience, such as a divorce or loss, that breaks open the heart and a doorway into the soul.
- Stage 2: Chaos–A dismantling of ego attachments and the surfacing of deeper layers of unprocessed emotions.
- Stage 3: Healing–The choice one makes to move out of chaos.
- Stage 4: Contemplative Being–Living with and utilizing more tools, having gone through the first 3 stages.
Each of the four stages can assist you in freeing yourself from being stuck in struggle or trauma, and help you see the opportunities to have the greatest spiritual expansion of your life. Join Wendy on this journey to living your fullest, truest self today.
